Yeah I guess they had to make it fit in one of the predefined categories. More and more though I'm realizing that most people really have no clue what NG is about and can't comprehend what it will ultimately become.

A site for x-rated furry-games? *FINGURS X'ED PLZPLZPLZ!!1*

The bastards said that Newground's content is "Highly Irrelevant"

I disagree, Toss the Turtle, Leo and Satan and Beer Run! Are highly relevant to society today.

They should've given NG credit for more than the games section though.

Newgrounds deserves better place than the 44th :( I'm so sad...

No, "irreverent". I made the same mistake when reading that earlier.

Great news! NG deserved it. But not all content allowed for children? Nonsense, Newgrounds is a family-safe environment providing fun for the whole family! Oh, you can play this game too called "Madness Interactive". One quick question, is all the sprite work like the one you posted available for viewing somewhere, or are you gonna tease us posting one at a time?


Are you MAN enough to click this?!

At 8/25/10 04:46 PM, omegared wrote: Tom. What is NG, and what will it eventually become?

I actually have a little list I made to try and sum up the mission of NG... I feel kinda goofy sharing it but it gives the big overview:

Welcome everyone.
Be a catalyst for creativity.
Foster long-term, fruitful relationships amongst talented individuals.
Provide the public with a unique experience they won't find elsewhere.

So to break that down...

Welcome everyone. - In our effort to continue to raise the bar of quality, we need to be sure NG never becomes too elitist or snobby. We can't take ourselves too seriously and we need to remember our roots and know that everyone has room for growth.

Be a catalyst for creativity. - I don't want to just run a content aggregator. From the beginning NG has inspired people to create, and a lot of the content here exists because NG served as a catalyst. NG needs to push this further and further, the end result being better and better creations that would not have existed without the NG system behind them.

Foster long-term, fruitful relationships amongst talented individuals. - More important than any quick cash people make is the skills they gain and the people they meet through time on the site. It happened with me and Dan (Castle Crashers), it's happening with Edmund and Tommunism (Meatboy XBLA) and it's happened with endless other folks who met right here on NG. Put in the time and you will be rewarded with a better life.

Provide the public with a unique experience they won't find elsewhere. - My biggest motivation for NG comes mostly from childhood feelings that become harder and harder to recreate. Like that feeling when you walked into an arcade and they had a new game, and that game did something you didn't even know could be done... Digitized graphics, real voice, 3D, etc... And you just loved knowing that every time you went to the arcade, there was the potential for your mind to be blown.

As for specifics, they have to remain private because we have a tiny team and a pathetic budget compared to similar-sized websites. All I can say is that if people keep supporting NG we will hopefully make it worth their while with a really great site.

"Highly irreverent" meaning 'Showing a lack of respect for people or things that are generally taken seriously.'

They must have stumbled upon the assassin page. :P

But yes, it's always great to see Newgrounds getting some well deserved attention even if it's only for one part of the many parts of the site.

Though what's up with the screen shot they took? Seriously..

Numbah 44? Well at least it's SOMETHING! But as previously said, they should have added more than just the games. Newgrounds is moving up in the world, good for you, Tom!
