However, that feature is gone on the front of the userpage.. and what'd they replace it with..? Nothing. IF that is the case and that feature IS NOT coming back, then take that giant banner ad at the top, put it in that empty spot, and give me my freaking banner back!

Roar.

Well yeah I guess the ideal situation is where the BBS posts, Flash/Audio/Art reviews, level and maybe the B/P ranking can be shown there, and then if you want a full list of stats you can see the stats page and there'll be all that along with whistle ranking, awards, scouts, fans, etc...

Well, they're not really annoying for me. Perhaps a mute button which is shown in the box that comes up before every movie and game whose setting is remembered or something in account settings will be welcomed but honestly, annoying sounds isn't such a big problem. I'm surprised people are actually complaining about them, to be honest :P.

I love the new layout and everything! I am sure you guys are still working out the kinks. But it is missing the new review icon and whenever you want to send a mass message to your contacts do you have to do it one by one or will there be a list made to choose your friends like there was before?

Hm, I actually like the stats page a lot better. It gives us a nice overview over ALL our stats. And there are more stats than before to view at a quick glance.

Well...I haven't thought of it that way, and I suppose that would have come with adjustment time...but I still like being able to check if my reviews have been responded to at a click....something that would also please me if all responses were indicated in the notifications star up-top.

Yes, it is strange that we can't see the level of a user when we go to the userpage. But I have the feeling that levels are a lot less important now... (which is a real shame).

I dunno, maybe the new NG caters less to the stat-whores. No problems there!...

Also it's strange that our medals show up on the frontpage AND on the stats page.

...nevermind.

I have a problem/suggestion/bug/whatever you'd like to call it:

There is currently no way to flag new entries to the portal as being unsuitable/hateful/stolen, or if there is it isn't obvious enough. As is there doesn't seem to be any particular way to notify the admins about a certain flash. That means the stolen flash I saw today definitely isn't going to be taken care of, even though it wasn't always 100% in the past with flagging: at least the thing has a chance of being looked at and removed.

This is probably especially important now that people are so buzzed about piracy lately. Probably something you should re-implement/make more visible to the users viewing the portal.

Quoting a good idea suggested by Goat-Man here:

"Right now I'm loving the potential behind a project system integrated directly into Newgrounds! The ability to easily come together and share files will be a great help on future collaborations I'm sure!

It does seem to be missing a key feature though. Communication!
If I am working with a group of people on a project, then there should be a way for me to leave messages for them or talk directly. Maybe it could be an editable document like titanpad, a small chat window or even a forum like thread/post system.
If a system is going to be available to work together like this, then it seems counter-intuitive to still require another means of communicating the project progress and new ideas. It could even be integrated with the notification system, ie "New message(s) in Project ____"

I ran this by people already and they suggested using PMs or Skype (or any such program). The problem with PMs is that it's limited to a 2 way conversation. There is no possible way to keep everyone in the loop of every reply that is made by everyone included. It would get clustered and burdensome. I wouldn't use either Skype because there would be no saved record of all the past conversations, and is someone missed a Skype session they would miss everything said, instead of just reading the old messages saved to the project page.

I hope this is something Newgrounds has planned, or will look into for the future."

If I have on real request one thing That I know most people would a agree on is that every info panel should uniform more specifically like the Art Portal Info Panel. All the things you need to know about the submission in one convent and non intrusive area. even the like crap.

I very much dislike how the games and movies have no description next to them anymore. Now you have to tediously click every single picture to find out if it is something you would be interested in or not. It really is a severe turn-off. I may have to seek my fun at other web pages. I don't want too though. I love Newgrounds. It's really just extremely frustrating and time consuming.

Otherwise, I like the re-design. Thanks for reading.

Good job on the site. Everything runs smooth as hell even on my slow ass laptop. Things look great and there seems to be a lot more information available on a single page. You guys even kept in the old portal so I can't even cry about that.

absolutely not, when the in-page lay out first was introduce many people hated it and eventually they add the option between the new in-page mode and the old light box mode.

The problem with the in page mode is that if a swf is too small it's shoves it the side of web page.
The light box mode made it so the movie is always snapped the center of the page.

That's what I want back.

i like the previous setup better, it was a little easier to navigate and i was used to it after over five years of using newgrounds... i think this setup is definitely unique, but navigation is challenging and in the art portal, there is no navigation except hitting the back button when searching through all pics. maybe you guys could find a way to influence both systems?

not really, they're a fun little group of lovable ruggamuffins. you probably just don't like them because you're a member of the homosexual community.

my reference was to soulja boy, lil b, odd future, & that taylor gang shit.

soulja boy sucks (lol)
lil b is hilarious
odd future is fun
taylor gang is uninteresting
lordzeebmork is just a compulsive masturhater eating hatertots dipped in haterade like a fuckin allihater

Oh, and one other idea. A "Backlog" option (Similar in Function to Favorites, but without the "Assumed" endorsement that comes from Favorites.). There are enough quality items on Newgrounds that I often don't have time to fairly check something out, but I would love to come back to it when I've got the time. What ends up happening is I have a "Tab Folder" full of "To Play / Watch" (Formed from a quick glance at the Home Page, "Pending", and sometimes items talked about on other forums, Etc.) it'd be nice to have this functionality on the site, so that any computer I log into has my Backlog.

A Half formed idea that stemmed as I was typing that out... a fleshed out "List System" integrated with "Favorites" that people could use to suggest other games/movies. It looks like Tags (Which I assume the author is currently responsible for?) could be tied into that system. Haven't considered the mechanics of this enough... but I like the initial sound. ;P

I really wish that there was a text score out of 5 in addition to the new star system. At a glance it's actually impossible to gauge what the score is. So why would they make it that inconvenient to check?
I do like this set up suggestion though! I even wish that it had the trophies grouped in with it as well. I like seeing them, and as an artist they are a point of pride. Having them pushed to the bottom of the page as an afterthought is insulting. We work hard to earn those awards, and we want to show them off a bit!

I really miss the text next to the movies and games on the front page. Sometimes the title didn't appeal to me, but the sentence describing it made me click on it.
