Oh God, change! I fear it! It must be destroyed!
I love the new look; I'll admit, I'm gonna miss the 2007 design, but nothing should stay the same for too long. Well done, guys. Well done.
VERY well done

I am sorry to say that this update was not worth it at all. First, the whole site is really annoying to navigate. The layout is too bright. Its like you revamped the site for annoying, tasteless 12 year olds that got bored of nick jr. Now, I cant even tell which game with medals is newest because someone had to go and alphabetize it. I don't think many people were complaining about the old layout, mainly because there was nothing wrong with it. If anyone did complain that it wasn't colorful enough, they should have gone to a different site. the same goes for the size of the pics. if something is too small to see, people can just zoom in. One of the reasons i liked the old site was that it had a certain feel of darkness that made it stand out from all the other websites. Now it feels like you sold out to a bunch of nagging hipsters. I don't know why you had to separate the games from the movies. It was very obvious before which one was which by just looking to the left of the title and looking at the symbol. Also, the whole idea of removing outlines from pictures and gifs is overused. The update should have been done in small pieces overtime so people could say whether or not to change it back. I am very disappointed with newgrounds and I hope they fix this.
Visually speaking, the redesign is superb.It gives you an idea of what NG artists can do, and it's really top-notch.
Forum-wise, I don't see why the left part is so cluttered with stuff now, the level icon was always good enough for everyone-plus now it's way too small and rather pixely (yes, I know it's supposed to be like that, but it looks a bit low-quality compared to the old level list).
And about the userpage, it's not very good, practically speaking.
You have all the favorites, updates etc. on the right, but absolutely nothing on the left, so why did you put the stats on a separate page?Please put them back there, or at least give us an option to do so.
Now I have to switch pages every time I want to either look at my stats or just look at my BBS posts.
And, speaking of switching pages, a separate page for submissions that are under judgment seems superfluous as well.Again, more clicking that could be avoided.
Apart from those three issues, the rest of the redesign is pretty amazing and it makes the site look very modern.
Nice, I tried to post yesterday but then the servers crashed or whatever.
Redesign looks sweet though, you guys did an awesome job as always. :)
Holy. Fudging. Shiz. Fudge. WHERE HAVE I BEEN ALL THIS TIME?! This. Is. GENIUS! *Manly Tears* It's so beautiful :')
Don't even know if anyone will see this, but congrats Tom and NG Staff, you guys have been entertaining me and some of my friends since before 2001 (that's when I decided to actually create an account).
I think you guys managed to keep tracking with modern times.
Personaly, I think things should keep evolving instead of trying forcing traditions (aka SOPA/PIPA for Music Labels)
Anyway, Congrats again, hope this damn thing never fails.
:D This will take a while to get used to but it was worth the wait!
Finally we have online/offline thingymajiggs!!!

its good to see they converted to html 5 and kept up with modern standards, so you can view the movies on mobile devices/tablets etc.

On the other hand, they now have a neat tag page to cover even more submissions than ever!

I trully love how the website looks right now!. Great job with the redesign!! :)
About the voting power icons, I think they are pretty cool, but the previous are much better in terms of design. They where all done with the same style, and they where much visible than they are now. It's not that I'm raging against the new ones, I trully like them. Mabye if you remake the weapons with the old icon style, that would look great :)
I'm not going to lie... I already miss the old music visualizer.. The new one is too generic, and yet there's more of a variety of the same thing now. We have like 30 presets of nothing but abstract lines.. wow amazing...
HOW COULD YOU TAKE AWAY THE BADGERS?!

Correction: YOU have a shitty icon. A lot of people have awesome icons, and they're a whole lot better than having the same tiresome, generic level icons for everybody. Finally, this BBS has some personality. If you don't like shitty icons, then weed your own garden.
I never uploaded a new profile pic because animated images are no longer supported and I wanted to keep an animated one.
Now I'm sad.
But only in that one respect. The rest looks fantastic.
Other than the obvious teething issues, I think the redesign's been an absolute success - I certainly love the look of the site, even if the brightness is a bit hard on the eyes initially. It definitely seems to have taken a step more towards the pre-2007 design than the previous one. From what's there the only things that I can see that I could complain about is the fact that levels seem to have taken a position below the user icons, which makes it look a bit more like a fairly regular, normal site, the previous icons made the site stand out from the crowd somewhat. I especially love the topbar beside your name - some great quick accessibility added by the icons there. I'm very happy to see this, even if initially the brightness was a turnoff for me.
