Today marks the 1st anniversary of the icon mod crew. The top 20 alone have covered at least 37,000 submissions within that one year. I assume the rest of the contributors add up to make it 40k. Still, that's a shitload of icons ready for the redesign. Here's hoping we can get even more help this Summer.

What a productive year! Thanks again everyone who has been helping out... The redesign keeps getting nudged back but the site keeps getting more ready for it. :)

Not sure how I can check how many I have submitted but I'm sure I'm at around 25-40. Hey I've been a mod for about two days that isn't that bad!

Glad to be here!

I think I might have jumped the gun before my first post. Finished up the icons for shinobiclock's flashes and noticed a couple more.

I like joke games, does that make me a bad person?

Also, could I be added to the Genre mods please, there are a few things that I see around that haven't been updated, some flash in my favourites and some from guys I worked with who have since left, unless you just want me to list them all :p

I'd like to think that people enjoy them better when the author has put the work in themselves, having never bothed to play any of these games, I don't know the quality of them so I'll take your word on them mostly being quizes.

Are there really that many adult games that would make a huge shift in the user base?

RIght now I've been keeping the focus on half-assed / galleries / quiz games and submissions that use photographic nudes. To FULLY enforce things would require going after Frank's Adventure but those games have a real charm and humor that make them feel like part of NG's history... I would actually be tempted to have a contest where artists on the site can make new art for those games, just to make them 100% legit.

I've been thinking I need to make a BIG post about all this stuff because it's been on my mind a lot this year and I know the rules keep changing as I build up more and more resolve to make changes. A few months ago I wouldn't have thought we would have gone THIS FAR with deleting as much as we have, but having done so it feels pretty damn good so it makes me want to keep moving with it.

I hate it that so much amazing stuff has come from NG and there are still people out there who refer to it as a porn site. I've always seen it as a site that encourages freedom and denounces censorship, a site that is willing to get dropped by just about every advertiser on the planet for the sake of giving people a place to fully express themselves. My theory has always been, "If your friend says it's a porn site, it's because he found it while searching for porn." NG regulars aren't the ones looking for Pokemon Hentai, Google users are and in the past those searches returned some quiz game on NG.

Re-skinned assembly line games and hentai quiz games are both just cheap ploys for traffic and not the work of serious members of the community, so I don't feel like we're making a huge compromise by removing them. I'm hesitant to delete too much all at once because I don't want to shock the system too hard, but so far I've been feeling good about our progress. We could look into some of the higher quality offenders and at least make note of them for long-term consideration. Ultimately, removing the submissions that weren't hand-drawn by the community will leave more exposure for the ones that were, and maybe updating some "classics" could be an opportunity for artists here on NG.

I do like the sound of this. I've always had a bitter taste towards hentai/porn submissions that users only took pictures from the internet. Even if my flashes were crap, I at least tried to do something that I wanted to make rather than making an effortless hentai gallery. I'm sure many users felt like they were cheated on when their flashes only got a few hundred views while these submissions got tens of thousands of views. I'm happy with the approach NG has taken here. Of course, I haven't gone after games like Frank's Adventure since I've left adult submissions that are hand-drawn by the authors.

My 2 cents:
I don't feel bad about those effortless hentai and porn quizes / galleries going down the drain, but yeah, let's leave the more famous flashes that are part of NG's history alone. I get that you guys might want to improve NG's image, but let's not forget that NG was founded on edgy material after all and I think hentai and other adult flashes were a big part of that foundation.

And I think it's definitely a good idea to explain everything in a newspost. I saw a thread yesterday from someone who didn't know why all those flashes were deleted and he wasn't very happy with it.

A fake adult rating as part of a joke probably isn't a huge deal as long as it's marked as SPAM... But spam containing adult photos and stolen hentai is worth looking into for removal... I used to feel more "live and let live" with all this stuff, but really they were just shitting all over the site most the time and the joke is even less funny years later.

Deleted the hentai... Almost deleted "The Yellow Line" but then thought... meh, 2003, made it this far as just a yellow line... might as well let it go on. :)

I haven't been hunting down single framed submissions since if that's what we're doing then we may as well take down B as well as all of Afro_Stud's flashes. I know B is historical but still... That's why I've let any single framed submissions slide.

I'd claim it but I think someone else deserves a chance to take care of an iconic user. I already did RaspberryClock. However, it will be mine if it's still unclaimed by next week.
