COME WATCH THE 4TH ANNUAL TANK AWARDS VIDEO!!!
Congratulations to the winners, especially Bahamut, as you've put a lot of time and effort into this. The countless evenings where you've stopped talking to em, because you're "doing some icons" has paid off handsomely!
After some nudging, we've decided to reveal SOME info about the upcoming 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.
Basically, we're becoming more mainstream, but we're not YouTube, so you still need to go over there for Video Blogs, so nyah-nyah!
Because of these changes, you will notice there is no "Flash Portal" in the nav bar but it does exist as a "Classic Portal" in the subnav. There will still be a judgment phase with blams and saves.
I'm going to be lost for a short while (3.5 picoseconds) after the launch, then after I've had an orgasm over the site, I'll get on with my NGing.
