Why wait? (lol NSFW) If this doesn't convince people to do their icons, I don't know what will.

I will help if you make me an icon mod. :3

Monthly voting ends in three days! Check your account page to see if you are in the voting pool to select the Best of July. The best original movie (no commercial characters or music) will win $250!

I would really love to help. But my parents would call me stupid if I gave away money like that, and I don't want to get called stupid by my parents. I once gave away like 50 USD to charity and my parents told me that I shouldn't just give away money like that. God how I hate their stupid philosophy.

I believe this one is implying his/her electronic computer was in a less-than-perfect state, but he gratuitously used the term 'gay' to describe the event.

Ungentlemanly (a pun!) discrimination againt much-pursued & prosecuted minorities like this should not be allowed on NewGrounds...

Sounds fantastic. Luckily I didn't have to wait too long for the site to come back up by the time I got back home.

If you have Flash submissions here on NG and you haven't updated to 140x90 thumbnails yet, please do so! Our courageous icon mod team has tackled over 20,000 thumbnails but they need all the help and support they can get.

I couldn't agree more. This could take until 2012 but the more people we get helping out on a regular basis, the sooner we'll be done.

If you are in or near London, don't miss the London Meetup this weekend. Over 50 confirmed attendees!

CAN'T FUCKING WAIT!

Silly Tom. No one cares about originality anymore. That notion is an anachronistic antique of a bygone era, and you know it. We are all cannibals now :)

No.

I have used this analogy before (and it's not necessarily the best analogy, but it's a reasonable demonstration of how things work).

Think of bandwidth like a highway. If you have a lot of traffic on the highway, there's a good chance of there being a traffic jam, particularly during peak times.

Let's say that there were previously two lanes on NG's proverbial highway. Now it's been upgraded to five. This doesn't mean that traffic will move any faster than it could when there's no traffic jam, as there's always speed restrictions on the highway (don't tell me about the Auto Bahn), it just means that the traffic will flow more smoothly for more of the time. Capiche?

Are you the bandwidth police? Can I surf the highway while drunk, officer?
