I spent this year getting myself reacquainted with Newgrounds. I've submitted some music, had a good time playing and reviewing games, as well as watching movies. I hope that I can get into writing for some games, as well as having more of my music picked to be used in flash animations. I'm really hoping that the Literature/Writing Portal gets opened to the Public soon, I'd be glad to add my creative work to the pile. Anyway, I plan on doing a lot of Collaborating, so look out for me this year. Here's to 2011, the next great year for Newgrounds.

I can just IMAGINE the toys you can make for Battle Block Theatre!

You make a shit-load of heads with sockets for ears, eyes, and attach to a single body that looks the same.

It's like a Mr. Potato head + Mummies.

Then you can paint them and stuff.

We can talk about feature requests later - what would you like to see from the COMMUNITY in 2011, in terms of collaboration, events, projects, competitions, themes, etc.? And what are your own personal resolutions?

Personally I would like to see something happen with the interviews section on the flash portal. It hasn't changed in almost four and a half years... the last interview was 06/04/2006!

I would like to see the developers who get in the featured box give a little post mortum in that space. A developer interview coming along with the feature would be a nice addition and would give valuable information to those looking to follow in the footsteps of today's top developers.

I've looked back on the year and I can say that 2010 was a pretty good year for Newgrounds.

Seeing that all the work that Newgrounds has been doing I've decided that Newgrounds have deserved something special. Something like a contribution from everybody.

Newgrounds is great, but it can be better.

If all the goals were accomplished, there were more features, and there were more quality Flash creators, Newgrounds can beat down any other gaming website. It can beat down XGen, Armor Games, anything! We just gotta try.

Happy New Year, NG.

Happy New Year everyone!

My resolution is to just get my @$$ in gear and start pumping out animations of my own!

A little thing I'd like to see is a notification system for the forums and blog posts, it's a bit annoying to have conversations there if you don't even know the other person is talking back.

Well, I'd definitely like to see a good platform for collaboration between artists, musicians, and programmers, even writers. Great works need them all. The PM system works, but it would help if the site had a feature to let collaborators contact one another as a group with their ideas and content without having to form to the mold of the BBS.

I'm hoping to see more people step out of their comfort zone with new, untested ideas and platforms.

I like that idea. I'd love to see people's own creativity displayed in their own styles. Though there's nothing wrong with following a trend, I'd just prefer original content!

Whoop whoop, happy new year Newgrounds.

With the "Winds of Change" news post, I'd say it's high time we start seeing some musical talent in the Audio Portal collab up with equal representation. I can name a few talented drummers, guitarists, keyboardists, bassist and singing users who could potentially combine their efforts to create MORE music, which if done right could improve the chances of being featured in an animation or game.

The addition of an audio portal collab feature could only promote teamwork and growth within the Audio Portal community, which now more than ever needs teamwork and cooperation with flash authors.

Furthermore, I've been inspired by Zeurel to make my own webcomic exclusive to the Art Portal. That along with an increased rate of making animations, are my goals for this year. I'm even taking this semester off from college to serve as a bit of a break, when in reality I'll be working pretty damn hard. :D

I linked a potential employer here in Coppell, TX the Repercussions of Evil flash...he was impressed, but damn, I hated having to explain that the story was supposed to be stupid, and "Have you heard of Doom? Blahblalba..." errrgghhh...sooo, it's another goal of mine to start churning out some job-worthy stuff into the Portal this year.

It's about time! :)
