I love the redesign, but does the site seem buggy to anyone else? Movies/games aren't working for me at ALL, and I definitely have the latest flash player. I mean, it's to be expected though with something so new.

the entirety of the site minus of the bbs has been substantially improved imo. its look very contemporary, i like it. it's just the bbs has suffered a hit.

i feel as if it's usability has been kicked in the nuts. i cannot cruise around with as much ease as i could previously.

there's no reply to topic button by each post anymore, only the quote button. so i have to either scroll to the top and hit reply or reply then delete the quote.

there's so no seperation between the post body and the user info on the left so looking at posts is just weird now.

the drop down menu at the top of topics which allows you to change from forum to forum is gone too so i have to go to forum index then click another forum

the grey then orange separating topics is very off putting. there should just still be a line between each topic

the ng news should have its own box at the top of each forum because i keep mistaking it for an actual bbs topic now.

the previous ng bbs was god tier because it looked like a lot was going on yet it was incredibly simple to use and very streamlined. however, this rendition looks like it has a lot going and it does. there's so much bam bam in your face shit without the same usability. don't fix what aint broken

Don't want to sound impatient but I'm curious if you have some timeframe for such things. I guess stuff like making it possible to submit anything comes first though. :P

I get increasingly tempted to replace the Pico voting bar with something more compact that can sit well with the score but just haven't been able to bring myself to go that far yet. We may go back to a numerical score instead of stars since they aren't as clear.

Fuck. God damn it, the simplicity does NOT open solutions, it shrinks them!

NG has really out done itself! And just to think: I though the 2007 and 2005 redesigns were amazing.

I was a little concerned at first, but after the site was put back up, I was dumbfounded on how great it looked. This was a good move that you made tom.

On my user page it shows the four Time Fcuk levels I created, with screenshots of them and links to play each.

That is freaking awesome.

So, exactly when was having only pictures on each portal, instead of actual DESCRIPTIONS, a good thing? It's an improvement to have to click on every single game or video in order to know what you're getting into?

Seriously, how on earth can anyone prefer image spam (http://www.newgrounds.com/games) to actual information (http://web.archive.org/web/20110721224235/http://www.newgro unds.com/game/)?

i am not sure if it is because of the update but when i try to load some games/ movies it doesnt load with the little box in the top left that has a circle square and triangle. ( i have had bad internet problems b4 so it may be that)

As most of us Ive been here on NG almost every day for the last few years and I really liked the old design Im gonna miss it! But hey its time for change. First thing I noticed it feels slow, I dont mean server overload because Ive tried browsing it at different hours if there are that many people every minute thats a good thing or u just need a better server, also old site was more fast phased if you get what I mean (more user friendly) maybe I just lost because its new but accessing music by genre needs 3 clicks instead of 2, call me stupid but this is what I mean by faster. Scoring from 1-10 changed to 5 stars, u can fill a star half way so I guess its still score 10 so that one was a nice upgrade. The buttons on the top are too shiny and overloaded. The rest I just have to get used to it except one thing, this black hurts my eyes!

gj NG keep up the good work!

well i like the new style but perfer old one. there so far hasnt been the preview robot from the old style for audio portal and while everything i have to say looks really cool some of the text and options are cut off. there also seems to be a problem with points since i just voted on five submissions but never got the message saying i got experience points for it. oh well can't have everything but might i recommend a way to let people go back to original layout if they wish to? might be useful for people who perfer the original over the newer version

That's a bug we need to fix.

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.

Oops I didn't mean voting power of 1 per user, I meant one vote per submission per user. So you would vote with power but not vote multiple times on the same thing. To do it right the score of the submission would need to fluctuate over time as your vote power grows - but this might be a big performance issue so it's still in an exploratory phase.

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

Under Judgment stuff still shows up on the Classic Portal, it's just that publishing broke so nothing has been submitted since launch.

I'm not sure if I'm the first person to find this, but I'm certainly too lazy to look through this entire thread to see.

The newgrounds.com/lit/levels page still shows the old levels. I already tried clearing my cache and all that stuff, but it's still not showing the new ones.
