They all kind of suck in my humble opinion. What happened to Mickey the dick? Why cant anyone seem to make a flash of 2112? There is a serious decline of talent as the years progress on this site. Sucks it has to be that way you know? Perhaps we should petition for certain animators to be removed. This is just one idea. What are your ideas?


What shall we use to fill the empty spaces?

oh no! not at all what i mean. We keep the best, but the ones that suck and are ruining it we should get rid of them, and their followers.

I find this idea to be terrible, because it seems unfair. If you don't like a certain animator, then just don't watch his cartoons.

But thats not the problem. The problem is this site is like a dictatorship. The animators like StrawberryClock, develop fans that all vote 5 on their flashes, and therefore get the front page. They arent the best! They just won over a lot of numbskulls!

I see just as much talent now as any other time.

Perhaps we should petition for certain animators to be removed.

I think that would be an absolutely awful idea. On NG anybody is supposed to be able to submit flash, if the users don't like a flash they get a chance to vote the flash off, no need to remove the animator as well. Nobody should have to worry about being prevented from submitting their work just because it's not the best quality. I would hate to see any of that change.

What appears on the front page isn't decided by the voting system, the site admins and possibly others are the ones who take care of this. This is why a flash that might still be under judgement or just passed might be featured on the front page.

Lets see you make one then, Mr. Critic.

Don't be a douche.


I'm quite jealous of these clever signatures.

Which is why this site is so corrupt! The animator's legion of followers have extended into the realms of the admins. It did not always used to be this way, but now it is. The admins know that Newground's users are primarily friends with those few animators constantly on the front page. They cannot continue to get money of they dont satisfy the masses. Unfortunately the masses are all just a bunch of minions, and will most likely destroy this thread. As always. :/

Yes, it's everybody else's fault that this thread isn't liked, it couldn't possibly be that it was just a shitty idea or anything, no way.

Hotdiggedydemon is having a hiatus from Wacky gamez jokez for kidz. If you don't like the flash nowadys, you can always re-watch old flash.

But also, you never know when you'll be checking some UJ flash, and it turns out the flash you voted on makes it to the frontpage.
