I think it's cool how you can go through so many things on this website now and discover things you didn't notice before. Like I just now noticed that now in order for you to post not a direct reply, you have to go to the "Reply To This Topic" thread at the end. My response moods are still not working. I try clicking on them and nothing happens. Do I need to press space or something when I click on them?

Also, yesterday, I went on an Abobo-fest hardcore while at work. Lol. I earned a ton of new medals.. the medals show up, however, they don't add the points to my profile?

Today, I start Abobo-fest again, earned 2 medals.. "Anger Issues" and "Elderly Execution", ofcourse today, these medals are just plain not showing up. It gave me the notifications of me winning them in-game though. This is starting to get LaMe.

Finally, I don't like this Redesign monster. First he eats my banner, then my points, now my medals!?

Goodness, this site is looking badass. The old buttons and such had their charm, but I can certainly accept this new layout.

A huge problem that persists for me though is that whenever I try to play a movie the ad attached to it plays in the background, making it impossible to watch.

Design looks good and all but seems to me it's at the price of usability. Not being able to get the rating before going to the actual game/movie page is pissing me off to no end.

OK, I have finally started to except the changes, and I love all the hard work you put in to it.
I do have some suggestions...

1. I would like to see my rank xp level and blam/save level on my user page (and if at all possible can you make them larger, I am on a 40 inch monitorat 3/4 res and I can barely make them out ).

2. I know it was an experiment to use large images on the front page, it does look cool, and I can see where you were going with it, but I don't like it, or should I say, I like it better with the text next to it, It quickly lets me know which one i haven't seen and although I inevitably click on all the front page games/movies, I still like to read the description and pretend like I am choosing which one I am going to watch based on that.

3. please add the interviews container on the front page

::optimal:: there is a couple things I would like to see changed but , there not a huge deal...
1. move the artist news above pBots picks
1. find a place to fly the city scape banner,

P.S. thanks for putting the Number score back next to the star score
also, i am a police captain, but the icon still says civilian, i dont know if you have already addressed this matters or any of the other matters, if you have i am sorry

It looks FANTASTIC! Definitely the best incarnation of NG yet, wonderful job NG Staff.

-Still missing Literature Portal.

-The left side of the user profile is now very vacant, and it's missing the convenient quick links for BBS Posts and reviews. Hell, stats in general is now a separate click away...will stats return to the main user page?
-Will the Notifications button in the top account for ALL responses; BBS posts quoting our posts, News Blogs responding, reviews responding, and subscribed feeds from authors of interest? That would be ideal.
-I used the top of a thread in a forum's marker for how many views the thread had gained, and how many posts it contained; it was a good means to see just how much activity a thread is receiving and it's placement was convenient. Is that gone forever now?
-Since we have to highlight flash games and flash movies to tell what they're called now, why not a pop up cursor that tells us who made it, and maybe even the little plot synopsis the author is allowed to jot down? Sort of like the classic Portal from the previous incarnation popped up the score and more information.
-It's a minor detail, but when organizing favorites, the icons aren't in widescreen format anymore, so the perfect squared 46x46's look smushed.

This is an exciting time for Newgrounds! I'm proud to be a part of it.

All I can say is "Whoa" I don't know why you wanted to redesign the site; the old one was completely user-friendly in my opinion. Now I gotta familiarize myself with a new design?! FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Anyway, I do like the design. It'll take me awhile to get used to it.

Once again, nice job
However, I do miss the ability to listen to songs from the audio portal without having to go to that specific songs player.
I'll be back if I find anything else :D
Again, great job.

My biggest complaint about the redesign is the sound that the play button and the "under judgement notice" make. Isn't there any way to turn off that sound? I really don't want to hear it every time I do some B/Ping or want to watch some movies/play some games. It's annoying.

I'm finding this redesign functionally irritating.

-No roll over info on submissions, seriously, where's the hell is the author and preview image?
-Classic portal downplayed, no longer has it's own button, new main page layout looks like hell.
-Have to click another link to get my stats, user page in general is a mess.
-Icons for locked medals are far too bright and busy, blending into the ones earned.
-No indication of 'new day begins at' or how many submissions I've voted on.
-Far less information in dialog boxes all around.
-Annoying, repeating sounds on under judgement submissions.
-Everything is big and overly spread out, I can see a lot less at a glance than before.

Overall, it's very pretty to look at, but feels like more effort went into the bling than the function.

I think Alopex hit quite a lot on the mark. While the bling and style of the new site is great, it lost a lot of functionality...if y'all could incorporate the information into the icons in a similar, "roll-over" style like the previous incarnation, that would help a lot.

We are getting less information up-front...and there seems to be a lot of clicking around to get to where we need to go. Blend the practicality and informativeness of the old with the style and vibrancy of the new, please.

Question about the Under Judgement page. I've noticed there are still some movies and games that have passed judgement but are still in that menu page. Shouldn't those submissions be out of there already?

You can, under the credit part, but I know what you mean, I would also like to have the author's name in the title bar

On thing that you guy really need to put back is a way too see how many favorites and review/ new reviews a submission has gotten.

I was hoping to be able to see if my art has gotten new reviews with the redesign but now I can tell with anything.

I like reading reviews that my stuff has gotten, good or bad. I don't wanna click on every submission one at a time only to see if it's gotten a new review or if it's score change by a few decimal points or if it's got a favorite or not.

Please add a feature to monitor all this.

Yes, go to account settings and check "automatically play general content" then save that setting.

That's not really a soultion. I have turned that feature off for a reason.

What do you mean? When you hover your mouse over a submission you'll get the author and its rating (E, T, M or A). Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you, I dunno.

-Classic portal downplayed, no longer has it's own button, new main page layout looks like hell.

What do you mean? It looks a lot nicer. Being an NG user who's interested in flash games and movies, I'd much rather prefer nice big icons without an overload of information rather than the long lists of the Classic Portal. I think this complaint is purely because you're used to the old portal.

-Have to click another link to get my stats, user page in general is a mess.

A mess? Why? It's exactly the same as before except without the stats crammed into it. If anything it's less of a mess than before. I agree that perhaps some stats like Flash reviews, Audio Reviews, Art reviews, level and BBS posts should be showed at least since there's a lot of empty space on the right of userpages, but it's certainly not a mess. D:

-Icons for locked medals are far too bright and busy, blending into the ones earned.

Um... on my screen the locked medals are clearly dark red with a lock icon on them. You don't get any more obvious than that.

-No indication of 'new day begins at' or how many submissions I've voted on.

You're right. That's a known problem and the staff should be working on it!

-Far less information in dialog boxes all around.

Such as?

-Annoying, repeating sounds on under judgement submissions.

You can go to your account settings and make the Under Judgement submissions play automatically, so you'll remove those sounds if you don't like them. They're not even THAT annoying anyway.

-Everything is big and overly spread out, I can see a lot less at a glance than before.

True, but this is mostly the case with the Games and Movies sections because of the new icons. Having them rather than long lists is easier on the eyes in my opinion, and while it may take a little bit of a while for more veteran NG users to get used to, I don't see it being such a problem.

Overall, it's very pretty to look at, but feels like more effort went into the bling than the function.

Sorry but I disagree I'm afraid. There are plenty of great new functional additions such as the AWESOME project system, and more's still to come!
