I believe Tom mentioned that they'll put the old version offline and start working on putting the redesign online. I would say it's fair the estimate this takes a good solid day.

Speculate the number of people on the forums at that time, will we break the record?

I am SO glad the redesign is scheduled to arrive before my next level up. Even though it's a shiny gold, that big hammer does not appeal to me at all. Here's hoping the level icon I get early February is a lot nicer. I'd even be happy if it was just a redone version of my current one.

I wonder if the experience/leveling schema will get another overhaul?

According to JohnnyUtah in the weapon icons thread, it'll be the same. Bunch of new weapons though.

Cool, thanks for the link. Looking forward to seeing the new icons and how the trends turn out but a little disappointed to see there's a good chance the leveling framework will remain the same. With seven level 60's the current level requirements are beginning to feel a little outdated. Perhaps that's just because I got used to the days where nobody had the top level and it was exciting to see it being striven for. The top level isn't anywhere near as illustrious when it's common, just look at how the EGSC B/P rank is barely worth a bat of an eyelid now there's more than 200 of them.

It'd actually be really fun to see the requirements for all levels raised so Pimp goes down to level 50 or so, then have all the level icons above him hidden and only revealed once he (or whoever else may be #1) gets that level.

Haha not quite, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia holds that accolade, but it'd definitely lengthen the novelty and thrill of the redesign. ; )

There is probably some kind of complicated math problem behind it.


I'm quite jealous of these clever signatures.

420 divided by 24 = 17.5.

17.5 days or 420 hours.

Half of the people will be all like "Oh my god the redesign fucking sucks change it back" and the other half will be all like "Oh my god the redesign is fucking awesome" and then in two weeks everyone forgot about the change except for the threads being made when people come and visit the site and their last visit was preredesign.

I'm really concerned about the color scheme shown in the countdown. I don't know if the color scheme of the countdown's just for show or a foreboding sign that the NewGrounds main colors will not be black and orange, but perhaps mixes of gray and green....

I think that would perhaps be the most significant shift if that does indeed happen, above all other changes, as certainly a lot of us have been use to the relationship between black & orange and Newgrounds.

Above anything else, I do hope the portals, namely the audio one gets some real love in the redesign. I think that particular part of Newgrounds needs a better lift than anything else. Also, zero-bomber control.

The whole countdown thing feels rather creepy and full of F.U.D., but I'm anxious to actually be around to witness firsthand a transition to a new age of Newgrounds, be it awesome or backwater.

Best of luck, some dumb kid!
