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.

Then let's rid this website of those cheap flashes.
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.
Sounds reasonable. Games like Frank's adventure require you to explore around, collect things, do missions and whatnot instead of just asking you to answer trivial questions.
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.
That would be wise. I'm sure there are users that are wondering what the hell is going on with the hentai holocaust. Like Auz, I have seen a topic some time ago where the users are wondering why all these flashes are being blammed. Some were happy to see this while others were not as thrilled.
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.
Awesome. It really feels that we're in some kind of flash revolution.
I understand in the past that porn ads were vital to Newgrounds' survival and likely encouraged others to make quiz games thinking that this was acceptable on the site. That was when the internet as a whole was new and still experimented by the public. Now that times have changed and the internet is bigger, more advanced and more mainstream than ever, we can make do with other kinds of content (thanks to more advanced versions of flash and other programs) and sources of income (like the current online game ads).
I'm really happy that we are going in this direction and I hope the users can understand the reasons for this path we are taken. This also gets me more excited to see the redesign.
Can't seem to get past the sound loading part.
It's a spam submission. Do you want this marked as a game gag spam or a movie?
Movies/spam junk marked as games.
Does this even work?
I'm not sure how to embed flash links so here goes nothing:
These are all the same thing (one frame poorly drawn image):
These are all broken:

I can help you out. Just simply paste the link address into the post without using any HTML buttons.
Also, thanks for helping us out here!
You know what? While hunting for certain flashes for deletion I see a lot of spammy joke flashes where the ratings are grossly inaccurate (typically all to Adult ratings) to make it look like a porn quiz and whatnot to attract and piss off users and I think we need to knock them down a peg.
I'll start making accurate ratings for each spam flash and hopefully give less people wasted time.
Wish me luck, comrades, wish me luck...
On second thought maybe I should ask Tom about this.
What is your stance on joke/spam flashes that are inaccurately rated adult?? I know you are pretty relaxed when it comes to spam but perhaps you have something else in mind about these flashes?
When checking some out I found that some of them contain stolen porn clips/pictures, shock images of Goatse and whatnot.
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.

Already then, I guess I'll go do some genre modding for spam submissions.
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.
Movie marked as a game.
I click on what's on the flash and it leads me to a dead site.
More hentai crap:
You may want to check this guy out. Tons of clips and pictures that I doubt are his but not 100% sure.

For old time's sake, here are some people who turn up with missing thumbnails on the redesign!

I can take shit of any kind (unless it's escape games :P) so I'm tackling these:
Been a bit slow today but these should easily be done before Friday once I get some rants out of the way.

The poor Ragnarok collection is practically naked. If anyone is down with Ragnarok sprite movies, these would put a big dent in it:
I've been gone for way too damn long, it's time to pick it up again. Guess I'll reacquaint myself with these three.

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.
100 pages, yay!

OK, I have to admit, I laughed when I saw the maze.
Also, 100 pages of productivity! Preparing and exterminating all kinds of flashes! Hoorah!
I'm having a problem with genre modding lately. It seems that some flashes can have the genre easily edited while others seem to give a hassle to change the genre. Once I enter the info it refreshes the page just to show it's not there. I do this over and over again until it finally changes the genre. Even when I leave it and check the page later it's not there.
I'm using FireFox on Windows 7. Could there be a problem with my tools?
In other news...
I claim these guys:
This is a movie marked as a game:
