I'm getting a boner just thinking about the redesign. Unlike most other sites, the redesigns here have always been a positive experience. I may not have an NG Gold account since the first page (I didn't know it was a free thing until 2003), but I've been around for a very long time with NG.

Can't wait, Tom and Crew.

It first started as a plan to switch to a wide layout, like we did with the view page three years ago. We decided that all future wide pages would be part of a new layout. Then we decided to switch our javascript library from Prototype to jQuery, so all the javascript had to be re-written. And we decided that the in-progress Project System should get rolled into it and launch with it. And the new browsing pages for genre and tag data on games and movies. And basically all the improvements of the past three years became part of this new layout and none of it could launch until all of it was finished. WHOOPS.

The new site also makes some key changes that lay a foundation for all the stuff we want to do moving forward, so that's exciting.

It has some new file types but still needs more added - we need to add file validation for each type so it ends up adding up. Also no Unity support at launch but the groundwork is in place to break out beyond Flash.

You guys are redesigning the site already? It feels like it's only been a short while since the last update. I must be getting old...

I can already tell you I don't like the new thumbnail size. I'd rather be able to see the title and description than just more image space. And for those of you who are going to tell me "well maybe you can see it when you roll over" well I don't care. It's inconvenient having to roll over everything. I'd rather be able to see it all at once.


I got Flash CS4 in case you need something converted to CS3.

I'm curious to see what the Newgrounds of the new decade will look like. I remember when this iteration came out, and it seemed like everything was gonna change.

Well, it's good that didn't happen.

I love Newgrounds, I really hope any changes serve to make the site a better place instead of a different place.

Knowing you, Tom, I know that you love this site more then anyone, and wouldn't sell off its glory to get some extra viewers.

It's strange that someone could go their entire time on the internet and never even hear of this site, eh?

But maybe we don't need to be ArmorGames to be great.


Good.

One complaint I have about the current layout is that I never get a notification for the monthly voting. I know it starts on the 1st, but I always seem to forget. Back when there was a separate window for your account login, there was a big ass notification telling you to go vote. Maybe like a small popup reminding me to vote would be nice...

As always, thank you and all your team, Tom. I can say without a doubt that Newgrounds has entertained me ever since I discovered the internet (1998/1999).
