I think some event kinda like Game Jam or Power of 3 with Flash Movies because i feel the people who work on flash movies really only work with other animators and not other parts of the community.
We definitely need to do this. Animation in general needs to become as eclectic and as diverse as the games. Not everyone can be triple threats like happyharry or Swain. The rest of us need to come together to create amazing submissions cause, let's face it, the money is in the games, not animation. All animators should support and encourage each other. If anything for the sheer love of the craft.
Well, Tom, You really love 2010 on your owned and older website, It was awesome like 2010, It was just like 2006 before the year when the redesign was made by you, Tom!

Besides, Everybody will be happy about 2006 and 2010 and 2011!, It will be awesome and to be cool for people who like your website that was older than YouTube!, Really awesome, Also, I like posting on the BBS on Newgrounds, For coolness, Let's have peacing and coolness next year on Newgrounds!, Anyways, Will there will be another redesign on Newgrounds on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day?
2010 was fantastic, I met Newgrounds, joined, created games, programmed and did lots of friends, here are some of them:
And for 2011 I would like to have the NG Zombie Day!
And for 2011 I would like to have the NG Zombie Day!
i´ts already have on Halloween Day.
Newgrounds Forever! / Comment my userpage, bitch! / Add me as fan :3
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.
A person's life isn't measured by what they do, but by how hard they work for what they believe in.

The NG Wiki was launched, with the goal of getting all the site documentation into one manageable
Working on it.
To top it all off, Time ranked us among the 50 Best Websites of 2010.
Next year, top 10. No exceptions.
At the moment over 50,000 submissions are ready with 140x90 thumbnails and every submission with more than 80,000 views has genre info in place. With the help of the icon and genre mods, we'll keep pushing those numbers closer to the goal... EVERYTHING. You can help too by updating your old submissions if you haven't already!
Listen to the man, Newgrounds. I'm going gray over here.
Not to mention Bryce Milburn's NG Photobook and Nathan's documentary are both slated for release in 2011! And maybe BattleBlock Theater?
Finish BattleBlock Theater so I can give you my money.
How do you feel about this past year on Newgrounds? 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?
This year, I managed to do a lot I didn't think was possible. I realized that it's fun to lend a hand touching up Flashes: checking grammar, suggesting slight tweaks here and there, etc. I'd like to stay on that production-side. However, voice-acting was a challenge and a great use of time; just the little bit I did here and there across the site is nice to go back and see (or listen to).
As for the community, I want the multi-author environment to not limit itself to collabs. The community, though tightly knit in some areas, needs to become a little friendlier and conducive to experimentation. A couple friends need to be able to somewhat consistently say "Hey, I've got an idea. Let's make a game/movie," and get to it. We've got a lot of talent, but it needs to be unified a little more.
I think I'm going to resolve to explore programming. The Games Factory 2 is a powerful tool, and I'm excited to mess around with it a little more. AS3 is intimidating, but I bought a book on it and I'm going to try to make something cool.
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.

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.
These announcements always prove how idiotic most users are.
Happy New Year, you wastes of air.
happy new years everone and hope we see more games in newgronds so far so good have a safe hollday
Looking forward to the redesign. Change is often a good thing.
Hopefully 2011 will bring much goodness.
Happy New Years everyone!
2011 is gonna be epic like Tom said, there is gonna be a lot of new things to look forward to and I already can't wait for pico day, and madness day 2011

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.
