BUT in summary - a lot of people are panicking like this is the end-all, when it's really a humble begin-all. it's by no means perfect OR finished
Yeah but I think that a lot of the stuff you're kind of defending with "I like it just fine" and "what about new people?"
Yeah I can see how "portal" might be construed as vague, but it's also a brand for Newgrounds. One of the things that this update really seems to neglect is the community aspect of newgrounds which, I might add, is one of the things that really causes regulars to stay here for years and years.
So when you suddenly have a whole bunch of partitioned off "more sectiony" areas and all that, it kind of detracts from that community aspect that was there before. When you remove things like the Portal, it's basically kind of giving the cold shoulder to folks who liked something about newgrounds in favor of the people who don't.
Yeah I get some things like Turd of the Week being phased out. Yeah I'm okay with there being new styles to things and all that, but I feel like a lot of it doesn't really make sense and, when that's pointed out, is kind of just dismissed as "oh that's just because it's new and you're stuck in your ways".
I don't think that's necessarily particularly fair. Do you really think it's sentimental attachment that makes me prefer labeled buttons and text links over the envelope, the bucket, the thing with the P on it, the cog, the star, and the power switch? Yeah, I will get used to that, it won't be a problem for me after a while, but the fact that it's not apparent and intuitive right now means it won't be for people who are new to the site either, so shouldn't that merit some consideration?
it's actually EASIER to find porn now, i been jacking all day sonnn
No wonder this took so long a-hor-hor-hor
because nobody reads descriptions
I do so!
those who say they do are full of shit.
I READ LOTS OF STUFF DON'T TELL ME I DON'T I'LL KILL YOU HOMES I'M FROM THE STREETS BITCH
No but really, I do read it. Or did, I should say >:|
we live in an ADD driven society
I have ADD and I still read stuff. Like, I'd be working on flash right now, but I got distracted and been reading your stuff. I read stuff.
99% of the world clicks first and asks questions later. NO I DIDN'T RESEARCH but come on - the old way was nothing more than peripheral clutter.
No, it wasn't. I guarantee you that the text often determined whether or not I clicked at all, and if this thread is any indication I'm not the only one.
the limited descriptions for movies and games are bullshit either way - i don't see how "MR. FART GOES TO THE MALL AND FARTS" or "CAN U DEFEND PLANET EARTH FROM THE ALIEN?" has any relevance.
...which is why it doesn't matter to you. To those of us who don't want to click "UNDRESS WADE AND WIN A FREE IPOD" but do want to click "UNDRESS TOM AND WIN A FREE WACOM TABLET" it matters plenty!
this is opinion, not something that needs to be addressed

You talk about how a lot of things are done to reduce visual clutter, but that BG image is nothing but noise. Isn't it fair to say you'd rather have the option not to have it?
it's funny how the people we kept the classic portal around for are the only ones bitching about it.
So wait you seriously considered getting rid of it?"
it's not in the main nav, no - but it's still up there TWICE, and you can access it just as fast as you could on the previous design (half a second slower when you consider the hover) BUT IT'S STILL ONE CLICK, SO THE ARGUMENT IS POINTLESS
No, it isn't.
Having two drop down menus with redundant links when you scroll to the bottom is not as good as one button lead you to everything you want to see. If anything, it should have been a content portal button with a "movies" and "games" sort function, which would have been way simpler to do anyway.
Or, here's a shocking idea, if one wanted to have a separate games and movies thing, why not just have the portal have separate columns for those things? You might have had to have the featured stuff at the top of the page instead of middle columns, but really all the better for getting exposure to good stuff, right?
either way lemme ask you - as a content creator, which one of the following do you feel would bring your production more traffic, from a general, global audience?
I think this promotes the false dichotomy that your way is necessarily one and my way is necessarily the other, and I don't agree.
that would just further confuse people and clutter the nav
I really think this way of doing things is more cluttered and more confusing, and in fact that's my main beef with it.
