Although it'll take some getting used to (I've been used to certain things for a LONG TIME on this site), I could see myself embracing the newnewgrounds as much as the old. Good work, Newgrounds!

I do have a few complaints though. A few have been mentioned already, so I'll bring up my major complaint.
The frontpage just doesn't look as cool anymore. I don't like the "just images" set up. I'd prefer the title and a little description next to each picture with the artist, like it used to be. That seems more organized to me and gives the front page featured artists a little bit more exposure.

Which probably means you scrapped the idea of seeing the amount of f's a submission has. I actually thought you would add this feature to art submission in the redesign with the ability to minitor reviews.
But it seems if anything its gone off all types of media now.

The favorites data per submission needs to return - that is one of those things that slipped away but will be accounted for.

Melancholy because there isn't a Lit Portal.

There's actually a different color set aside for writers so we should just get that going ahead of having the Portal ready.

I am so fucking impressed right now. This doesn't really feel like Newgrounds but that's just because it's all so new!
I'm really excited and I just fell inlove with this website all over again.

Good work! You guys really know what your doing!

The new layout is primo! Only issue I have with it is that I can no longer see when my music has new reviews, so I have to go through them all to reply to a new review.

Yeah...when you play an artists game, you can't browse their other submissions... :( why not??!?! I liked that you could browse other submissions if you liked the artist.

lol this kinda is awful, maybe needs to get a redesign times to times with user feedbacks. I feel like most of the layers are TOO big.

This is... so... intimidating and awesome at the same time!

The visuals are stunning and the new icons are really cool (I want to see that list of level/rank icons to satisfy my curiosity)! It feels like I'm exploring something new yet familiar and the presentation is visually a lot better while it honors the NG theme. This site got a lot more modern and stylish and have that special futuristic awesome feel to it! I like that everything is so much more bigger than before too (no need for that monocle anymore while on NG), and less cluttered. The background art pieces are well picked and I like it that they change when navigating around the different portals and I like the different NG-related characters on the bottom of the page, it feels more epic somehow, as a whole. There's a lot of details in the new design and I really enjoy navigating around here. A praise to the artist(s) and the designer(s) and everyone else that worked on the new design.

I'm a bit curious about the "Latest shared creations" pod on my user page, I like the idea a lot that you can now keep track of your user creations and show them on the main page but is it also supposed to have something to do with high scores too? Having a high score pod/list on the user page is something I would find quite fun to have but right now it is a bit confusing (yet intriguing) to see the high scores in the user creations pod, perhaps a separate pod/section/tab for scores?

Amazing work! It really feels fresh and improved: the computer screen is spewing sparkling rainbows at me right now...

Hey Tom what's with the teal lines on every BBS thread? I understand you might want some texture there but the current one is awful and distracting. It honestly looks really bad to me and I can't be the only one right? It would be fine if it was just faint grey hues, but why is there blue tint on some? It clashes.

Here's a pic of what I mean:

I can't update my userpic or icon, it keeps coming up with the following:

When you're on a userpage I noticed when I click any of the game/movie/audio etc. button tabs it applies the username to the link instead of the usual WWW. So if I try to go to the BBS when I'm on my userpage it sends me to vegetarianmeat.newgrounds.com/bbs instead of www.newgrounds.com/bbs

don't get me wrong, it looks great....very stylish, however.. i can't help but feel its lost some of it's uniqueness the NG site seemed to have..maibe its all that brown as opposed to the classic black grey orange colour scheme. might be mostly nostalgia though


...This is indeed a disturbing universe... O_o

Love the new site, though anytime anyone does add new features especially with a revision this massive, new bugs are pretty common, i'd be surprised if there weren't any new bugs. but I'm sure you'll be able to fix them eventually. we'll just have to put up with it 'till you do.
