Ripe for abuse.

Sig sizes with no limits

Ripe for abuse.

Custom icons

Ripe for abuse. Also destroys all graphical continuity standards.

Smileys within posts

Generally a senseless idea.

Multiple image attachments

Slows down page load times. Also ripe for abuse.

Embedded YouTube videos

Slows down page load times. Also ripe for abuse.

User ranking system based on rep

Ripe for more abuse than you can imagine. Attaching a points system that can be used as a weapon against people you don't like makes the system meaningless.

Achievable badges

Juvenile idea.

Gifs everywhere

Slows down page load times. Also ripe for abuse.

Sadly, that's happening... there will be a custom icon over the level icon in the forums... :(

Now THIS I can get behind. It's the little things, making the site run smoothly, that really count.

Go in google, type what you want to look for and add "Newgrounds BBS".

Here's the best NG Search bar ever.

"Luis-ify" button on every page on the site.

When you press it, everything becomes Luis.

Sorry, didn't catch it.

You did a good job of highlighting things that are awful though.

Shoot I wouldn't mind having custom icons on the forums. It would be pretty cool to be honest. We have custom icons for our profiles, custom banners, custom profile pictures, and custom signature pics. Why not? It does defeat the purpose of the Level Icons and Levels overall though.

Orange and blue would make it look like Portal, which would be cool for about 10 minutes and then you would realise that no, the novelty factor will not overcome the complete and utter eye raping your consciousness succumbed to all of three seconds.

orange and blue dun work.

No I mean like, only orange. That has always been NG's color code, and it always should. It's what makes us awesome. :P

I hope they separate the awards when it comes to Games and Movies. A good game will always beat a good movie.

The video portal was already discussed in a post way back in 2011. I heard it was gonna start out as invite only though.

Believe it or not I want to hear that little sound when you vote on an entry like back in the day. If you've been here before 07 you'll know what I mean

Also a stupid thing but a more organized list when searching the list of everything in the portal.

Not if we had rules in place. I would love to see this site open up to filmmakers with less the restrictions that plague YouTube.

On the serious side, I hope this redesign caters to people with larger resolution monitors.

A widescreen layout, if you will.
