Oh jeez, I'm happy that I actually did win something here because it made me realize that the address that I had written done is very outdated since I haven't lived there for awhile and the address had changed. At least I'll have the money be sent to the right place now and in the future. :P

Congrats to the winners! I had a feeling from the start that Titanomachina would end up in the top 3!

And I don't mean to be a total dick here but FatKid's was pretty badly written. Still, congrats to all the winners, especially the guys from 'Rageous 7! Glad we finally got to see the winners!

Your scene in 'Rageous 7 submission was awesome. Great job ;)

Most of my congrats goes to Rageous 7 team and Sakupen.

The rest of 'em goes to everybody else for their implication on robot day. Share equally.

Oh yeah, probably should have mentioned that I think the top three art submissions are bloody fantastic, along with the majority of all the Robot Day art submissions.

Plus the audio submissions were very good aswell, some stuff I liked, especially Mechanical Thunder.

Robot Day went very well! Fuck yeah Newgrounds you did it again!

Although this is sure to result in a angry MC I am going to agree with Fro. There were plenty of works with much more literary merit (and with more entertainment value) that could have placed higher than the mediocre poem and the neat but quick scribbling of words that won.

I know you were entertained by the two pieces that you picked but entertainment should not be the only criteria. The winners lack merit (Sorry to be so harsh, at least you got cash to comfort you you two). But I know it doesn't matter at this point; really I am just trying to say that I felt that the judging was weak. In my opinion it should have been out sourced to someone that knows something about writing. MC obviously could judge an art contest with no issues but I sincerely think someone with more knowledge in writing should have judged the writing portion of the contest.


Failure should push you until success can pull you.

I could name tons of million dollar blockbuster outshine by low budget films. Learn some sportsmanship.

I don't think Fro was commenting on the length or time invested, as we all know that longer flash animations, or those that may have taken years to make, aren't necessarily all that great. Where there are artists such as Luis who can spout top quality relatively rapidly.

The issue in this case is that most people have a set standard of quality when it comes to visual media because most people are inundated with it throughout their lives. In this situation, I agree with Fro in the sense that quality of the submissions were substandard in regard to those that placed. If the competition were meant for short, witty submissions, perhaps that should have been emphasized. Because there were no limits placed, writers took the liberty to expound on the story without any set expectations other than "there needs to be robots."

I will corroborate Fro's statement, and I will put my own experience and knowledge behind it. I'm sure others in the writing community will corroborate this. The quality of the submissions that won, from a writer's perspective, are sub-standard. Fro should have placed better, I agree.

For the future, it would be nice if writers were given a better set of criteria, because if all that was being sought was a cheap thrill, it should be made known. It's not fair to the writers who invested more thought into their work.

I understand this is a flash community, and writing expertise should not be expected, but I think if you support something (such as literature), it needs to be supported 100%. At the very least, in the future, make the requirements better known. For example, the MWC.

Can't wait to see you guys at Comic-Con next week! Hope you can stop by our booth too (I-Mockery Productions booth #A10). Myself and Bomtoons will be there showcasing our upcoming game, Abobo's Big Adventure, on a genuine arcade cabinet! A cabinet, which I might add, has some truly badass artwork on it, compliments of JohnnyUtah!

See you guys next week!

Congrats to the winners and THANK YOU to everyone who participated!

Thank you Tom and MindChamber! This is the first NG holiday competition I've won anything on...hopefully the first of many more to come. Thanks very much!

Any idea on when the Daily 5th problem would get sorted out? This would be my partner in crime, Adam's first trophy ever, and I take pride in each of mine.

I know I should know this, but what is the next Newgrounds holiday? I remember seeing a calendar somewhere that showed all the Newgrounds holidays and the day they were on. Is it Madness day? What is after Madness Day? I need to see this calendar again so I can see a whole list of days I should attempt to make an animation for.
