Huh! It looks pretty good. The background has obnoxious colors in my opinion that kind of distract from the content on the site, but I'm pretty sure the background will be changed back soon enough.

No, it was me who thought I could get it gone. I told Jeff the cupid fucking sucks and he took that consideration. You can have your bow, at least it's no more on the actual levels.

That is something we talked about during development - having splashy front pages for the hubs but more subdued pages for the content. Hopefully we'll get that going as we gather up more skins!

Am I the only one who misses the top 5 weekly audio player thing on the audio page? I saw no mention of it, or any kind of audio portal player in the main post.

Although a bit of wee came out when I saw all these new emoticons things

Steam: Chubzilla100 also Check out da You Tubes

I dont think you understand the importance of clicking my sig, and the limitless prizes it holds.

More skins ftw!! :D

I also have a suggestion. When a thread in the BBS has multiple pages the numbers below show like "1 2 3 4....251... 489". But many times you will want to check the second or third to last page, e.g when you have been away or the thread just reached the next page. So it would be better if it would show like "1 2 3 4... 251... 487 488 489". I think basically like it was before. I know it's just one more click to get to the desired page, but still.

Also, liljim was right, I miss the "post reply" button without the quote without having to scroll up. But maybe I am just spoilt by the previous comfort. lol

Great job. Thanks to all you hard working staff folks for the new design and the new features.

It woud be nice if I could change backgrounds, because I hate Egoraptor's and I don't want to have to look at it every time I visit my profile page. I don't like the one for the NG Shop either but I almost never even go there so that's not as much of an issue. But my profile page? I go there a lot.

Also, include an edit button, because I realized I made a typo right after I posted this.

CHANGE IS SCARY! Are you able to integrate some form of classic newgrounds where we have the old layout? This one is pretty cool, but I grew quite attached to the old one. We wouldn't like change, would we mother.

Why is the site soooooooooooo slow? It's sexy and everything, but it is so much slower. You need a server upgrade. Congrats by the way :D

I think I may or may not (taking into account my own stupidity) have discovered a glitch with the experience depositing system. I have voted on well over 5 flashes and games today and it won't tell me how much experience I need, or level me up. I am kind of irritated, as I only need 10 more xp to get my next secret, of which I eagerly anticipate.

I think that getting rid of the title for reviews was just terrible...

Knowing that you had to give your review a title made you really think before you wrote a review. Especially since you can only make one and only one review and or "comment..." on any given thing. It's just me getting sick over the though of this site becoming like YouTube But I think that was a bad move.

Also I really hate the stars. I mean we've all come to understand that 4.6 + is godlike
4.2 + is pretty sweet
3.8 + is cool
3.5 + is worth a look
3.1 + is decent
2.5 + is just passing.

The stars a very convoluted, It's nice that now hovering your mouse over the stars in Movie page gives you the real score. But I would much rather only see number or at the least both stars and Numbers.

Stars when you're browsing Number when you are actually watching the danm thing. And to be fair Number take up a lot less room.

funny how the internet gets people raging cause of others stupidity. Anyways ya get the crashing problem fixed Tom? I've been on and crashed twice on the site so far is everything better yet. Also what's the update on liljim after the server fell on him? Jk jim but really the crashing thing is starting to bug me a little.


Too kind he was. It was unfortunate he was a good pawn.

I wonder, will all this changes, you still keep the same voting system? I've been lurking here for a few years, and recently created an account. One thing that makes no sense to me is that to increase my music voting power (because I don't care about flash games nor movies tbh) I need to vote on stuff that is strictly NOT music (like movies and games ....). So alhough I spend a lot of time voting in the music section I have no bonuses compared to someone who plays a games and leaves a vote without a review or anything else (zero bombers, yes you're included).
I feel, IMO, that both music and art should have different voting pools. I am not sure if this is the right place to bring this topic, but since you're all up for a change, I thought I might as well try my luck and post my user opinion here.
Love the new interface on music, even if I cannot see to which category the music I'm hearing actually belongs to.

Keep the good job anyway, hope I helped.

The site is a little sluggish today it seems.

but more importantly, http://www.newgrounds.com/news/ looks all messed up (but i am glad to see the riff raff news gone). Also i couldn't actually find a link to that page, i just had it bookmarked. i like to see all the staff and artist news at once; its a great way to catch up on random things if i haven't been to the site in a while.

i still think the site looks awesome :D

Front Page:
Good design. Not much different in placement. The animated slideshow of the top content is a step up from the previous static picture. The large icons make it easier to find content you'd be interested in.

That being said, there's room for improvement. The information on each module of the front page differs in importance depending on who's viewing it. It would be amazing if each user could move each module around and get rid of unnecessary ones, it would mean a layout which is unique to the user.

Games / Movies / Audio / Art / Channels:

The overall designs are good. The genre system is great for looking for relevant content and Newgrounds didn't have anything quite like that before.

Each of the pages is rather bare, though. Above each genre section should be something interesting or useful. Games should have P-Bot saying what version of Flash a user has and a small demo game to play. Movies should have a slideshow of featured content or full byte-size content for the user to watch presented by P-Bot. The Audio Portal should see the return of A-Bot playing all of the newest top-rated tracks. The Art Portal should show I-Bot with a digital canvas with a random piece of high-rated art being displayed in nearly full scale. Channels should have a picture of The Crew, newly updated for 2012.

Calendar:
Good concept.

It's only as useful as long as it's continually updated. There also needs to be some sort of Newgrounds themed calendar art, better navigation, and the ability to click blank space in a given date and view all of the data such as daily winners and submissions from that day.

Downloads:
Needs much more content.

Wiki:
It's a good start on getting all of the site information into one place.

Dumping Grounds:
Much more useful. Now .swf, .fla, .swc, .psd, .jpg, .gif, .doc, .txt, .htm, .xml, .zip, and .tar are all supported. Technically, this means any file may be submitted because any of them can be archived as a .tar file.

Projects:
The new system looks great. Hopefully it will make collaboration much easier.

Account:
Much more compact. Everything has its place now.

User Page:
The stats page is an interesting addition, but it would be better to simply line all of the stats up along the left side of the main user page.

I like it, but there are a few things, for one there is no button to go next/previous when viewing art. Also, the user banner has gone, and now there's just an empty space where it used to be, what gives? And third (for now at least) the info which you used to be able to see on the left on the user page, now it's gone and there's just empty space (again, what gives?)
Not complaining or anything, just... y'know.

laying my eyes on the redesign now that my internet has kicked back in and i must say, it is quite interesting. while it certainly will take time for me to adjust, the new layout is sweet.
