I'm not sure if this is happening to me or everyone. But every time I close my browser and open it up again I am logged out. It remembers my password and username, but I'm always logged out. Regardless of if I press the remember info thing or not. I'm not sure if this is a bug or a change, but I'd rather it kept me logged in.


GAH!

Hey all, I dunno what's going on but since the update, when I try to load games it gives me a message saying "plugin missing". Can anyone tell me what I'm missing or what's wrong?
Yes it worked before the update.

I came to this thread to suggest that. It'd be awesome for users to customize their pages to their liking. I think that's a great idea~

Also, I'm sure people mentioned this already, but it'd be great to see the exact number score rating along with the star rank. Because right now it's hard to differ between what's good and what's not. :<.. Also on the mouse rollover for movies/games, should show the score as well, so we know whether or not we're clicking on something that's good.

Redesign is fucking sick. Usually I hate anything that changes, but you guys really outdone yourselves. Love it.

The redesign looks amazing; keep up the great work. I was definitely a bit disoriented at first (a little moreso than the last redesign), but I'm slowly getting used to it.

Thoughts so far:
The art backgrounds are a great change. I like how it draws more attention to the art portal, which really has a lot of quality work in it.

The organization of movies/games into categories is really helpful when I'm trying to find something along the lines of a specific genre. Great work!

Keeping the classic portal was a smart move, although I find myself moving further away from it due to the categories system. I would have never thought that would happen.

The new profile tweaks (new icons, layout) are really nice. Would it be possible to add chat information other than AIM, though? Also, although I technically am a filmmaker, it would be neat if there were a "writer" aura. What are the chances of that being added?

Dumping grounds? AWESOME. Was that there before?

Notifications icon? AWESOME. Although it would be neat if the icon changed when there were new notifications (a number system or a different graphic set would work).

The new front page is great! I found the large icons to be a bit of an overload at first, but I'm getting used to it. I like how the title and rating (t,m,e,etc) pop up when you hover over the icon. Would it be possible to also include the author's name?

It's great that you have an iphone games section, but will there be apps available for other OSs?

Bottom line: great job, as always guys. Keep up the great work, and thank you for the years of entertainment.

Hi!

I don't like the new design/format for the audio tracks. With the old one's lists, I could see the dates of the latest tunes like on http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/browse/genre/trance ... Now, I can't see which ones are new and old in the lists with their specific dates easily. I would have to pick each one to see which one is new and I don't have time for that. :(

Did I miss an option to show those or is it not there? Thank you in advance. :)

I am kinda upset that your art portal no longer has any way to shuffle through the new art *next button* like you used to have. At least i could not for the life of me find that button if there is one. Please put that option back in cause having to click the back arrow on my mozilla bar is annoying as hell. If there is a "next" button somewhere please tell me cause i love the art portal and i check it daily, i will probly not check it that often anymore because of this simple screw up.

Not that that's a bad thing.

Pretty sure that's one of the things that got 'lost in the shuffle' and will be added back... eventually.

Yeah. I'm mostly noticing the lack of "other submissions by this artist" in the audio portal, as well as an inability to view reviews on all your submissions. I may just be missing something, though.

Obviously because it was removed to avoid people submitting purposefully crap flash in an attempt to get it.

I don't understand why all the avatars and pictures don't work anymore.
And the old rating system looked much cooler than the new star system, no idea why you guys changed that.

Oh, the other thing I miss is how when you used to enter the audio portal, a random track from the top 5 of the week starts playing. I loved entering the audio portal and hearing some epic track begin. I found most of the NGmusic I liked through that too. :(

I'm loving the redesign.

I have a suggestion, but I haven't read all the replies so this may be in the works or something.. But what about a comment section for project pages? That seems like it would be really helpful, to be able to talk on a project page with the other collaborators/conspirators of a project.

Another suggestion is to whore the whole site out with Facebook like buttons, forum threads, content, everything. If they were tiny mini icons it wouldn't be intrusive and might help bring more people and make sharing content easier

It's happening to me too, so I'll assume it's happening to everybody and needs to be fixed.

Please show the last 3 news posts on the front page like before, instead of just the most recent one.

And here's a real major problem. The movie and game sections on people's profiles use the same format as the front page. I want to be able to be able to go to an author's page after watching a movie that I liked and see what else he has made that's any good. That means I need to be able to see their scores. The new thumbnails have like no information with them. I wish they could be more like the links that show up in forum threads.

And I presume this is a known issue, but none of the 5 buttons work that are supposed to modify text when writing forum posts. They include Strong, Emphasis, Underline, Link, and E-Mail.


I got Flash CS4 in case you need something converted to CS3.
