You just depressed the hell out of me.


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

To be honest i was 16 when i joined NewGrounds. I acted like a noob cause i thought it was kind of funny until the clubs i was in didnt think so. Ah well, the days of intentional stupidity are over

By the way, my reason for quoting your post, AlphaCentauri, is that you registered that account on my birthday.

I suppose, but I doubt most kindergartners could type, much less turn on a computer and navigate to a website such as this. I think you mean everyone has the maturity of a kindergartener.


I can't come up with a decent saying, since everyone copyrights everything.

Provided I don't fuck up, I'd like to be an artist/animator/neuropsychologist/philos opher. That's a reasonable goal right?

I'm only 15, and I've only been here (nearly) 2 years, but I like to think I've grown up, and I know my posts have matured to an almost acceptable standard, as a pose to the crap I came out with at my sign up.
I hope other members see me and my posts as mature, as that is how I try to be (for the most part).


Pm me for a pleasant conversation or for help with anything.
Thanks to JebbaL for the awesome sig.

I went from a fucking idiot with a few great posts to a regular with several good posts and a few great posts.

I'm aging fast.

I don't even want to think about that. So in the mean time, I'll enjoy myself here. I have no idea when or if I'll ever leave.

I just hope we can continue seeing quality projects like Tarboy, Brackenwood, Fire and Ice - hell, even Foamy the Squirrel. In the past I've contributed what I felt were hi-quality projects on another account - and I earned some awards, but it didn't necessarily lead to greater things just yet.

I think as long as there's a potential for creators to expose their work to a larger audience via NG, it will continue bringing in talent, young and old. If we reward the people who contribute, dare I say, television or 'mainstream' quality work, or really just quality in general, I think you'll find several generations will continue to co-exist peacefully here.

I would honestly like to see the next Matt Groening, Trey Parker, or Seth MacFarlane hail from NewGrounds. Could be the next upload. And that's why I love it.

don't forget newgrounds is now associated with Facebook, prepare to have an influx of 10 year olds of never before seen epic proportions

Newgrounds is a metaphor for life. The young grow old are are replaced by new blood.

LOL. OLD? Oh really? What was I then?

Oh quiet ya creekin' old coot.

I've noticed this. Must be the Brony-hatin' mods doing their job quelling the Brony Rebelli- I mean keeping the shitty thread count lower than the past few weeks.
