It's like 50% every previous design, 50% something new.

I like it. Alas, I am another one of those users on an old Mac PowerPC, so there are some Flash features I will never see. The submissions are backwards-compatible though, so that's good. They play just fine. I'm mostly just missing out on ads, I think. Hee-hee!

Oh, are our custom page headers a thing of the past? (I don't really expect an answer -- you guys have got to be busy as hell -- but if I didn't ask, there would be no chance of getting an answer).

Anyway, overall, looks nice!

It might be nice if the Game Dev tools link(s) was more prominent. Maybe on the same page as "Submit a Game", "Submit a Movie", etc.

Is it me, or did updating the site lose me my saved game data?

Bug. The converting to WAV option for audio submissions is not working at all.

Oops, I'll PM this.

Great design overall though, I think. Love the original wall artwork.

Overall its good but I liked the old one more because of some features and layout it had. This new one takes a while to load if you're using a mobile device and its kind of slow on older computers like my laptop to where I'm having to use adblock+ a lot.

I'd give the old Layout a 9/10 where as the new one I give it a 6/10 simply because it lost some functionality just to gain some new graphics which I don't really care for.

Can I have an aura stating "writer", please? Everyone else has been pandered to and none of the others accurately reflects me as a member of society :(

Mr. Fulp, I would like to see the names of the movies and games displayed all the time on the main page as well as the author's name. It's just that im not getting anything from a bunch of random tiles. The classic portal is looking really good thou.

As a 7+ year user I have to say... Thank you NG, Tom/Wade/etc!

I appreciate you guys keeping things fresh and a redesign for the year of our apocalypse 2012 was just the right timing.

On to the bitching and moaning. ;)

Only three issues so far. *whew... right?*

1) I had a voting power of 10+ before the update and now it's 8.14 with no added bonus. What gives? Additionally, no note as to how many more votes I need to complete the day's points collection or notice that I've gained my points...

Wha, wha, whaaaaaa!?!? "we plan to switch to a one-vote-per-user system" Just saw this... Please don't. Please for the love of [insert unholy omnipotent being here] don't! This is why I log in daily, for the extra voting power over the newbs. Trust me, senior members having more voting power over D-bags that just registered is a GOOD THING.

7 years... WASTED??? Please no. Bad Newgrounds!

2) Thanks for leaving the "Classic Portal" page, but can we get a segregated "Under Judgement" spot back at the top please?

I ONLY voted on under judgement content each day when gaining my daily points for the blam/protect points and the added "Woo Hoo! I f-ing saw this first!" gratification once the ones I knew ruled made it into top slots or received awards.

I understand that you've moved that section into separate pages for games vs movies, but since it's the "Classic Portal" page could we get the slot at the top left back for only "Under Judgement" content? I will definitely continue to use it. (segueway into next rant ;) )

3) Is it just a temporary thing or are there too few content items in the "Under Judgement" section of the new separated game/movie pages?

I don't remember ever seeing less than 4 content items on the classic page as "Under Judgement". (all lies, but I exaggerate a -LOT-) I only see 3 in games and 1 in movies on the new UJ type specific pages currently and they are not updating for over an hour? Just a glitch or am I missing something deeper? (That's what she said RIGHT?... WELL??? Am I right or am I ri... you get the picture...)

Thanks again I love the new design, but I do agree that having the adverts appear like uploads from members on the homepage does skew gaymo. (to use the vernacular; derp!; no homo-phobe!)

-BrotherRabbit Ranked #547 as of TODAY! (and what a bright new day it is for my favorite webdoohickey NG!)

It may look better, but the navigation is ridiculous. Also, I liked it better when all my info/stats were on my 1 userpage.

I am so confused and disoriented.

I LOVE IT. It feels so new and weird. I have to remind myself that this is the same place full of cockjoak because otherwise I'd be wandering the net aimlessly looking for my home.

Wooohooo, thanks to everyone for their hard work because this must not have been easy.

Also, RIP to jim because of servers falling on him or something

the background skins are cool but pretty distracting IMO

on the art portal especially, the colours are so vibrant on the skin that it takes from the actual art piece you're viewing. maybe making them less saturated or optional would be better

aside from that its all good

Now that you mention the redesign, every big web-project has been updating it's interface.
The Newgrounds has done a well job as well.

Things will be much easier now
