It sucks cause I put alot of work into it and its one of my better games, and no one on NG can see it because some little peckerhead flagged it. Thanks to that assfuck I'm losing money in a sense in that that game would have boosted traffic to my site...

Actually 4 people flagged your entry. It takes more than just 1 users to pull something from the portal. Your entry was flagged because it spawns a pop up at the end of the game, which is a violation of our guidelines.

Not just 4. Tom unflagged it (Like he said he did in his post on the second page) and it was flagged AGAIN by another 4 people. So apparently 8 people thought it should have been flagged.

*Sigh* Read the first post, then, rename the movies you want deleted to _deleted_01 or something ( as I did when I asked - aren't you proud of me Wade? :P ) Then, e-mail Wade, with the subject - "Delete movies" or something, give him your username, and the list of movies you want removed, they'll be gone pretty shortly and you'll receive an email for each removed submission from P-bot clarifying that they were removed.

XX is just a thing to represent your name, because people have names of different lenght, so he wouldn't say, X,XX,XXX,XXXX etc.

The guy who submitted that has "joe_cartoon_8@hotmail.com" as an email... For some ODD reason I doubt that's the actual person.

Most of the time they are not going to be noticed in the Forums, especially if you only make a few posts about in the General Section. It's better that you posted a News Post, so that everyone is going to see it. I would never have noticed this if it wasn't a News Post.


If you MUST request me to remove your entries please rename them in the format "deleteXX01", "deleteXX02" with XX being a combination of your username. Like I could put "deletewf01", and this would ensure a unique title name. Be sure to include your USERNAME when you email me!

Well, you learn something new everyday. I'm actually not that ashamed of my Portal Entries, even though they didn't get good scores at all. But I still worked hard on them. I will keep this in mind just in case though. I'm going to have to assume that you would like them renamed in that Format to make them easier to find on the Portal Search....


If you put together some porn slide show, submitted something that wasn't your work, then it should be flagged and you should NOT email me about it. You should wait until we have time to review it, and remove it from the site. Users who have two entries flagged will no longer be able to submit content to the Portal until they have been cleared out. So do not submit something that might get flagged if you don't want to be temporarily banned.

Heh, you would think that this would be common sense, but I guess not. It must be a lot of work reviewing all of those flagged entries, seeing as how there are so many of them daily. If most of the users would just read the rules concerning the Portal FAQ, then they wouldn't have this problem and wouldn't have to bug you with their endless problems and complaining.


Also many users have been submitting public Flash demo games. We don't need a hundred versions of Pac Man, Asteroids, Snake, Tetris, etc. with different colors and music. While these public .FLA files are great learning tools, we don't need the exported .SWF files on our site unless you've made MAJOR changes to it. These entries will almost always get flagged, and if they do, do NOT email me about it!

That is something I didn't know, although I have suspected it for a while. I have seen many versions of these Tetris games, Snake, and just about every other public game that has been made for Atari. Your right about not needing 50+ versions of the game when all that was done was the edit of a few pics. Now that I know these can be flagged as well, I will be sure to hit them if I see them.


Other than that we are preparing to get some new hardware that will improve the site's performance. Watch for updates from Tom about that. Also did you notice I didn't mention anything about NG TANK LOGO STICKERS? :P

Lol, again with the stickers....I will have to order some of those as soon as I get some more cash on hand, which should be this weekend if all goes well. Seeing as people have been questioning why you are getting new hardware to increase the efficiency of the site, I have to say something to that. Why not? There is nothing wrong with increasing site speed and feedback, is there? It only makes it better for the members of Newgrounds.

That's why I think it should be mandatory to show their email address when submitting. (Even though 90% of the people that hide theirs have the link to "their" site in the movie that has the email everywhere anyway.) It will be much much easier to see if they're the real person or not if they have to show their email. The ability to hide it really "hurts" more authors than it "protects" since someone can just steal all the work they want and hide their email and get away with it. Or if the real author hides their email and people assume it's stolen.

I agree. This will help with problems like the one dealt with in this very thread. It would help weed out theives and what-not in a very convenient way. The only bad thing I can come up with in this is if the author knows a user will abuse him\her by e-mail. Otherwise I think it should be mandatory to include email with submissions.

Here's my way of regarding a submission as legit.
1. If it uses clocks, locks, or other NG related characters, then it is legit, unless it is stolen from another user who also has the Flash on NG.
2. If the NG preloader is used, or any other preloader mentioning NG, the submission is legit.
3. If there is an e-mail address on the submission, and the e-mail address on the name is the same, then the submission is legit. Bash Your Computer has no match, and is thus stolen.
4. If you can link to NG from their site, the submission is legit. Mars Conspiracy, for example, links to NG, making it legit.
5. If the e-mail on the website e-mail link of the NG username os the same, the Flash is legit. the SamBaksa "There she is" is legit in that manner.
6. If Newgrounds is mentioned in the Flash, even though it isn't in the preloader, the submission is legit.


Feel no mercy for me. It will only cause you to suffer as well.

I just blow my whistle on auto-spawners and porn slideshows, i apparently dont look as close as you do while movies are under judgement. on porn slideshows alone ive gained a silver whistle... this just shows how many 13 year olds are desperately wanting a movie on the site.

It's really better to just blow the whistle on blatently stolen things and let MOD's\ experienced NG'rs take care of it if it's a confusing situation. Obviously, from Joobie's experience, it's quite easy to get upgraded whistles from regular maintenance of the portal.
