Looks like I will be on pause making icons, till I am allowed to make them in the larger size.

More detailed thumbnails will be a nice change.
And I've been a little unhappy with a few of my old icons.

But even more than that I'm happy to be able to upload in formats other than .gif finally!!


GAH!

No apology to the guys and girls who spent hours, days and weeks making and submitting other peoples 46 x 46 icons over the last few years?

Yeah fuck those guys, it's not like they tried to make the place just a little better. Now you're just asking them to do it all over again. The thanks they get this time? Probably the same as last time, jack shit. I boo at this, BOO!

BOOOO!

And all these new guys get gold FORUM auras for being ICON mods. Jealousy of the stupid choices for "mods" ensues.

It's volunteer work.
You do it to help out, not for the praise or personal benefits.

It is true that we are basically starting from scratch now, but I trust that this will help to only improve Newgrounds. If you were gung-ho enough to spend weeks making 46x46 icons to make NG "a little better" then I'm sure you won't mind making a few 140x90s to make it a lot better!

Perhaps even with an option to download a higher resolution image to go with the song when played back in media players/iPods whatever. The only songs on my ipod without album art are NG submissions and that bugs me.

Album art is different from website icons. We are currently only interested in icons.

I hope there will be a way to switch back if the new layout will suck.

I'm actually really pleased with how flexible these new 140x90's can look (not to brag, but mine turned out great! Much better than working with those itty-bitty 46's) , so I gotta ask, when can we expect the update to fall-through so we can gaze at our new chunky icons?

They will look dumb.

I hope you guys don't go lazy and just stretch them. It would probably be fine if a border is added to fit the new size.

No one knows yet but I would assume once a significant number of flashes have updated.

Nothing is stopping you from making them. Just give them to the author when you're done or send them to an icon mod to upload.

Finally done all mine (few are stretched up from 100px icons I had, not re-screenshotting 30 games!)

Why 140x90 though? Even Facebook only uses 130x110.

I'm sure there's logic behind the choice but using 100x100 icons would've been much easier as most people have these already.

Our system will create a temporary 46x46 thumbnail for new submissions and existing 46x46 icons will remain in use until the big change takes effect.

Please update your old Flash thumbnails!

You will notice your user page now includes a link to your 140x90 icons (here are mine), to make it easier to see which ones need updating. You can also directly access the edit form from your individual submissions. There's a reference image at the bottom of this post.

If you run into any situation where your image upload doesn't work, PM me with the subject "ICON FAIL" and include any error messages you received on the page and a detailed explanation of what happened. Also include your OS and Browser type and version.

Sorry for the extra work... But change is exciting, right????!!

If you don't have time to update your icons, I have made a volunteer thread where you can post requests and users / icon mods will make them for you.

BTW - monthly voting time! Check your account page to see if you are part of the voting pool to select the Best of May.

Get ready for Robot Day on July 10th!

Well, I'm extremely sad. I took a long time to make all those icons, and now I can't use them. Worse of all, I made all of those icons with my old computer, so I don't have those icons anymore.

Why couldn't you guys make an optional change thing. That would have been so much better.

Oh well.

I'll get started as soon as I fix more hard drive.
