Can't wait for the redesign.

Sadly I must though.

the redesign sounds great!

why did you post the video on youtube? Aren't they the enemy, they always rip newgrounds content and put it there.

I AM SO READY FOR THE DESIGN!
Changed all my thumblines (and so did the admins thank you).

Hopefully I can make it to the pico parties next year.

The possibility to submit video without fitting it into a swf? Exclusivity?

Totally behind this. This will open the door to whole bunch of animators who do not use Flash or do not know/like converting their video to fit in a swf. I've personally switched to ToonBoom Animate and am excited for this, can't wait!

Games and movies are now represented with 140x90 thumbnails, instead of 46x46.

That's cool, but why aren't animated pictures allowed anymore?

All of that sounds quite awesome, but two things in particular got me quite interested. Specifically the ability to submit videos, and the fact that flash movies and games will have separate awards daily awards.

I eagerly await the redesign. :)

The word "Flash" has essentially been removed, so games and movies have the potential to include more than just content made with Flash. For example, if an artist uses After Effects or ToonBoom to complete their animation, they will ultimately be able to submit it as video instead of cramming it into an SWF. This will be an invite-only feature and will happen post-launch. We won't be using it for video blogs and cute cat videos and it should feel pretty seamless when it happens.OH

OH MY GOD.

This is the greatest thing to EVER HAPPEN. This will make projects a lot easier to work with! Thanks Tom!

Looking forward to seeing daily awards for both movies and games, it's long overdue! As for the Tank Awards, going to watch them now. Next year I'll not only be there (boo to me for not making it this year), but I'll be nominated for one ;)

I'm pretty sure there'll be people who get mad about the changes in the redesign. But hey, changes need to be done sometimes to keep things fresh and interesting. Am I right, fanboys?

Anyway, the broadcast was a lot of fun and so were the Tank Awards. I hope to see more like this in the future.

Sounds interesting. I don't know about the "Portal" removal and the awards being split though. Sounds a bit blurry and like less exposure, but we can only judge when it's out I guess.

So how about adding an iphone/droid compatible subsection in the portal for those non-flash content? iPhone/iPod/iPad supports quicktime embedded videos.

Awaiting tom's non-response..

I was hoping for a release date on the redesign, but this information is cool.

Can you give us a rough estimate?

I'm really not a fan of losing the whole "Flash Portal" thing. That's history you're changing there. Oh well, whatever you think is best for the site.

Also, are we going to be able to see our whistle points after the redesign?

What about people making games? Are you going to start supporting Unity too?

Please say yes...

Will movies include actual shot footage or will they just be for purely generated stuff when it comes to aftereffects, etc?
I'm glad it's invite only, we already have YouTube.


Your opinion is wrong.
