Awesome!
I find that bigger icons have worked well on other sites, so I guess they should be pretty cool here too.

I really like this. Some thumbnails were not visible in some other flash submissions.


Do you need $10 000 in cash for a 30 second animation? Click here

Sorry if this has already been asked/answered, but what about collab submissions where the the person that submitted isn't around anymore. Will we be able to update those if we were coauthored? Or is that something for the icon mods to deal with later?

Currently no... That page is best left alone for now. :(

Very true! I'm excited to see the update. My handful of icons are accounted for and ready to rock.

That will come down to icon mods. We'll be adding more icon mods but I figured we would give people a week or two to update stuff on their own first.

Redoing my one thumbnail was a pain... I wonder what its like for serious submitters.

But hey, if you guys make good use out of the bigger thumbnail (which you better!) then I'm all for it!

Holy crap, that's a huge thumbnail. I think it's a good idea to require an icon for submission. It somewhat increases the level of quality.

What happens if an icon isn't uploaded or updated? Is it deleted or something?

What? NG HAS AUDIO SUBMISSIONS???

THERE IS AN AUDIO PORTAL? WHAAA?

Anyway, I personally think we should have the option of making our icons 140 x 90 OR 50 x 50.

Seriously, how the heck will all the icons of users who dont even go on this site be reformatted? Shouldnt there be an AUTO black area surrounding icons that arent updated? Like black surrounding the already uploaded 50 x 50 icons.

Personally I think it's kind of pointless, but I guess everything has to change. I'll need to get used to not making the icons 46 pixels though.

I can't wait to see how pretty the site's going to look when the new layout is applied, with the new icons and whatnot.

So lemme get this straight: 46x46 icons will be phased out and no longer visible anywhere on the site (FP, search, BBS posts, user pages, etc), in favor of 140x90 thumbnails, and I still don't get what happens to Flashes that don't have the new 140x90 thumbnails. Alrighty then.


This is my main NG account, but I post Clock Flash as BoltClock and co-author myself sometimes.
I vote, review and post in the BBS under this account.
NOW SHUT UP >:(

I no longer have access to my previous fla.s
So screen capturing, copy pasting and then resizing doesn't turn out well

Really? I remember once a mention of allowing larger icons, and I've always been annoyed with how small and crappy the old 46x46 ones were. This'll look much better! Thanks, Tom, and everyone else involved on the project! I hope it goes into effect soon xD. I'll get to work on updating all of my old submissions as soon as possible! This gives me a chance to fix some of them up, too!


I'm not very good at drawing, yet I like animating. It's not particularly helpful.
