I signed up in 2006 and browsed here since 2004. I remember what it looked like before this and was amazed that I could find everything I was looking for and if there was something I couldn't find then someone else could find it.
I didn't even know of a redesign coming up in 2007 and for the past five years it has been getting tweaked and added to. A lot is coming up for the redesign that I'm looking forward to. Some of it on Day 1 while other things will of course be added to it overtime. Do I'm excited.
Since the next Newgrounds redesign is approaching, I have something to say. A lot has been put into the redesign from the staff as well as many of the members of Newgrounds, from the Icon Moderators to the Genre Moderators.
There are going to be a lot of changes and some new toys to play with. However some parts of the new stuff may not work completely out of the box, this is standard when it comes to new websites and with Newgrounds it has been fewer and fewer with each new redesign.
So there might be a bug here or a glitch there, if this is the case then we DO NOT NEED A THREAD TO BITCH ABOUT IT! I know I'm not a Forum Moderator and this is probably a case of backseat modding, but I just thought I would throw it out there.
If you see a problem with the site then PM one of the staff members so it can be looked at and fixed. By making a thread on the forum WHINING AND BITCHING about it will not make the problem go away, it will just make somebody else send Tom a PM to fix the problem when you could have just done that in the first place.
I know this doesn't account for everyone, but there will probably be whiners.
Oh and can we not have any "I HATE CHANGE - REDESIGN SUX! BRING BACK OLD ONE" type of threads to. That would be great.
