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! :)

Happy New Years Tom. Although 2010 was a break away year for me, I learned that deep down I will always be a loving NGer :)

It'll be nice to see another redesign, so keep up the work! Will that 'account type thingy' ever be something useful in the future?

2010 was pretty cool. I really liked the madness day submissions this year. Keep it up and Happy New Years (even though I think it's pointless to celebrate).

well happy new years everyone, in the 18th of novemer this will be my 6th year of newgrounding :)
i'd like to see newgrounds expanding to new platforms more.
like getting peoples games from newgrounds to be re-developed and worked to get it on my xbox.
this would be great for aspiring game makers.
also getting peoples films and videos into peoples homes.
i know the ng store already has some dvds but i'm talking random videos that people make that people like.
something like the top weekly release can be put on a dvd with a whole bunch of other videos.
getting newgrounds to new platforms would be awesome

1-1-11 Great date. Doesn't the number 2011 just look so, futuristic? I'm looking forward to the new layout, although I'm happy with the 2007 one for the most part.

One thing I would like to see is a literature section (I know there is one, not what I mean), where users can upload their writing such as poetry, comedy and stories to be rated by the NG community. This would make it easier for every one to submit content, regardless if they have flash. Just thinking out loud here guys

I thought it was very solid year, in terms of my NG-related activity. I definitely enjoyed Pico Day and all of the other holidays, interacting with other NG personalities at Meet-Ups and other NG gatherings, and watching new flash artists/game programmers emerge from obscurity into the limelight with their contributions.

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.?

Even though it seems difficult, I would enjoy seeing more collaboration between flash artists and the Lit Forum. I understand that most artists make their own scripts and characters, and would be averse to using someone elses' script, but perhaps a contest could force this issue a bit.

Also, an Art Portal/Lit Forum collaboration could occur via a short, Graphic Novel Contest.

And what are your own personal resolutions?

To make more awful awful flashes, obviously.

Also, maybe learn some programming basics. Sometime.

maybe...

Lol, I know you said no suggestions, but I'm still rooting for some sort of svn like gui versioning system.

I'll try to keep up with the events of Newgrounds better this year. I missed a lot last year.

I was too busy being amazing in my new shorts and sunglasses for just $0.03 amazing to get a good look at their name thus spelling it wrong what a shame.
