I run Firefox latest version.
Here are some problems:
Music player has a tendency to have the music skip badly during page navigation and saving files. -old one never did this.
No way to blow the whistle on submissions under judgement or otherwise.
No way to recommend flashes for collections.
Often receive illegal communication errors when voting. These can only be fixed by logging out and logging back in and my vote only counts after I fix it.
Some things I'd like to see:
Ability to turn of visualizations on the music player.
Ability to add songs you want to hear to a playlist that you can play on the music player so I can go by and check off a bunch of songs that I want to hear without having to go through the trouble of going to the next one every time a song is done. Note: this wouldn't be a favorites list just a list of songs to play. So you can try out new ones and only add what you really like to your favs.
Next button in the art portal.
More information on listed flashes than just the icon and title.
User created series pages so authors with a series can consolidate everything. By everything I mean movies games audio art lit news comments and bbs links. Maybe after staff approval. This could be an expansion of the user page or something. It could be searchable and feature-able. The pages could even be a home for interviews and behind the scenes things.
Preview post ability on bbs.
Ranks affecting voting power again.
Separate levels for the other Portals.
Notifications when authors reply to a comment you made on their news post. Or a list of comments you made with replies similar to how you can look at a list of all your forum posts
I'd ask for a chat but knowing NG's history I know the staff don't take this idea seriously.
One additional bug I forgot to list. I have a favorite artist that doesn't show up on my fav list and when I try to refav them the only option is manage favorite authors. The example: is knockwurst is supposed to be on my favorite art artists list but he doesn't show up and I can't add him.

The best way to determine you've deposited is to keep a closer eye on how much EXP you have. Additionally, NG Log is back up so you can track your deposits there.
Yeah, but that's bogus. If you on vote on fewer than five entries, those votes don't roll over to the next day.
Maybe I'll just wipe a nose bugger on the screen every time I vote. Some upgrade. Bad enough I have to stat-whore at another site (thanks for reminding me :3).

Old design was better. The new weapons look like crap. So do the whistles, and quite a few other things which will come to me as I go.
The "new" level icon weapons are the old level icons, remember? Shit, do I have to go to the archive site and find it? How can you forget that creepy "Slimer" level? Anyway I'm with ya. It sure isn't love at first sight with this one. I loved the last version the moment it hit the screen, especially the level icons.
Is there anyway we can get an audio playlist type feature for the audio portal? I hate having to switch back to my browser to keep starting up new songs.
I'm missing a short description for the games in the front page (or at least tags/stars or something like that).
Also, I'd like the front page to be customizable. Would this be possible? Like, I'd prefer to see more games and less movies. Also be able to select a different frontpaging algorithm, so I can decide whether I prefer new or popular games? Sometimes the front page gets stuck with the same games for weeks and doesn't change them.

The old design was more broken and a little more disorganized, it had several unfinished and discontinued features they were gonna add in 2007. Remember the chat? Never made, never will be. Or what about the NG Mag? Never fixed, and didn't see the light of day.
As for weapon icons, that's just opinion. There's people who enjoy pixel art you know. And the whistles look pretty bad ass to me. I don't see why is this a problem if it's something SUBJECTIVE.
And the newout layout just creates more confusion, and doesn't look better than the old layout. So what if the previous layout was 10 years old, it worked, and worked well.
What's so confusing about MOVIES, GAMES, AUDIO, ART, CHANNELS, COMMUNITY, and NG STORE as navigation? They all take one click, you don't have to worry about the sub tabs, I mean, who cares about "latest", "greatest", and "popular"? Just click on the main tabs since that's what we're all use to do.
If you go to MOVIES, it takes you to MOVIES.
You go to GAMES, it takes you to GAMES.
You go to AUDIO, it takes you to AUDIO.
You go to ART, it takes you to ART.
It's very self explanatory yet you think it's harder to understand the obvious.
It's more confusing to name the movies and games "flash" because there's plenty of people who don't know what flash is, and some think that it's a light bulb blinking (literally). And one more thing, movies and games no longer have to be flash, so it's no wonder the portal was split to two.
As for looks, again, opinion. Each page changes color to keep fresh so you wont have to see the same thing for too long. Pretty much like Windows 7 with it's wallpapers that change.
If I had my way, we'd rollback to the old layout in a week.
If you had your way, we'd go back to the past and play the shitty games that suck ass (and stay for 20 years). No, not happening. You only want to go back because you're so use to the old broken layout and refuse to use the latest just for being new, and not for the other stuff.
Customs is one thing, convenience is another. If you let go of your customs, you'll see the mayor convenience in the new compared to old.
My dad doesn't go to new grounds and he wanted to know its purpose.
1. Went to the Community tab. (the data base where all information is found [which is expected from the name "Community".])
2. Clicked on Wiki. (Since he knows Wikipedia, source of free information.)
3. He went to history, and learned new grounds. End of story.
New people find it more convenient to navigate than accustomed people do.
I quickly adapted to this new layout fast. But I'm disappointed that the blogs from non-artists were removed. Another glitch I found is some of the B/P badges repeat or they're on the wrong rank name. Example: The Supreme Commander has the regular Commander badge. And it's because they kept the old B/P badges.
I DO like the new content though. Among other things, the additions to medals.
The medals were added way before the redesign, kid.
Even if I save my login info on Google Chrome by making the X yellow, it automatically logs me off.
I'd just like to voice my opinion and say - the new design is really, really bad.
The bigger icons are unnecessary. A lot of stuff has gone missing, like game collections. Finding something is 10 times harder. The site takes longer to load on old hardware. And it's just ugly, in my opinion.
Not that I visit this site that much anymore.
I have no idea why you guys even needed a new design - the 2007 version was near perfect.

I want to +1 to this. With bigger threads I view, having that setting for thread pages would help me a lot so I can go on the second to last page before proceeding to the most recent one.
There are 4 things I hate with the new design. The first is when you are on someone's page it doesn't tell you the score of their games/movies just the icon etc. The second is lots of movie/game icons have been deleted so now there is just the basic picture. And third is when I look at my stats it says I have earned 4 trophies but when I click on view all, only 1 is there. I was co-authored in 3 animations which all earned trophies but I did not host them. I have still earned these so they should show on my page.
The final problem is there isn't the top 10 games/movies of the day on the home page. I don't think people can even get daily awards anymore? If you have got rid of that then I'm probably going to leave the site, they were my main reason for submitting.
I really hope you read this and try to fix them because the first, third and last problems are important and because of this I have stopped going on this site as much and I don't even want to submit to the site because of this.
I would appreciate it if I could get a reply.

You only want to go back because you're so use to the old broken layout and refuse to use the latest just for being new, and not for the other stuff.
The aesthetics are a completely separate issue (and there's no way to please everyone), but as for the new interface, I feel like it's a million times more intuitive than before. Those unable to navigate the new layout must just be so programmed to click in certain places out of habit that they can't fathom clicking in places that actually make SENSE.
I know you guys have bigger issues to deal with, but here a couple (hopefully) minor ones:
- in most cases the dates are spelled out, but in a couple spots, they're numbers.
- Seems that all Review crew picks in the "Stat, Info & More" sections say "Movie of the Year 2011" (or whatever year it was)... but in the Movies page, in the trophies list it says "Review Crew Pick".
the Link button is broken... I had to add those manually!. Hope they work! lol
...and a request. Can you add "Charity" to the Additional Credits options?! Thanks :)
Loving the redesign so far. I am but a lowly consumer, and do not submit, but I do my best to review constructively.
That being said, I wish I could sort reviews by how helpful they have been rated, instead of being limited to date/rating sort.
I just want to say the 'recent notifications' icon is just perfect. I've had no idea how much newgrounds was lacking until that was added. </hyperbole :p>
The Audio Portal was always my favorite part.. and now it's even better!
The "People find this review HELPFUL/USELESS" has too much vertical space, and requires too much scrolling.
Could you please show the title by default?? Such as...
You can't know what you don't know if you can only use yourself as a reference point.
Where did the old NG Staff Selection page go?! I loved that thing, but I can't seem to find it anywhere now. :'(

Bottom line: great job, as always guys. Keep up the great work, and thank you for the years of entertainment.
awesome design :D but there are two things that disappoint me a little
1) where did the cool music robot from the music portal go :< ? i know it sounds dumb, but that robot made the music portal somehow more uniqe.
2) weekly best 5 songs in music portal is something that made me come back a lot. is that gone forever?
At first, it was confusing to know where everything went, and everything that got changed. I slowly went around and figured all the new and changed stuff, but I like the redesign overall.
Great job Tom, NG is looking amazing!
Gawd. I hate my NG username.

Shhhh up man! We'll never get anywhere with this mutual admiration society BS.
I came of your woodwork recently to address some issues and try get comfy with this transition, by any means necessary. There legitimate issues above my post still needs resolving. Non critical issue: The "new" user level icons you're using, look just as bad as when you posted them, right before our last big redesign. Tell me I'm wrong; I'm an 11 vet here w/ no BBS rants to speak of. Maybe if we had a choice of which epoch's icons we'd like to use... and have a tournament later to find another batch of badges or two.
Naw get er dun thar boy!
My Feedback. Love the new site design and the project submission page. Makes it easier to test stuff before posting to judgement.
One thing that I missed from the old system, was a Submissions Master summary that listed all of the things you posted in a long list. It was tiny enough so it didn't take up alot of room. The KEY FEATURE was you got to see the number of reviews you had. and a ("new") review count from the last 2 days. For those who pop in and out every few days, its great to see what new reviews you got. Also the "favorites" counter, indicating how many 'fans' you have that marked your submission as their favorite.
We don't get this in the new system, or at least anywhere easily accessible.
Before I was able to access everything in 2 clicks. By clicking on my name top right corner. Then clicking on My Submissions link and there it was everything I needed to see in managing my submissions, with the View and Edit button handy.
Now there are too many clicks to edit or view something.
Good job, keep up the good work.

This split was under serious consideration for a while during development. It's still a potential down the road but we're trying not to let the top nav go beyond seven items. One side-goal would be to better integrate series and collections elsewhere by the time the Lit takes the place of Channels.

And yeah, I know, who uses IE anymore?
IE knows when its users have reached their reading limit. :P
I haven't actually been able to recreate this one but a number of people have reported it... Very frustrating. I also can't recreate not being able to set a review score in IE.

That still has to get plugged in.

I do have some suggestions...
1) We put some stats back on user pages... Will see where to go from there.
2) We are working on bringing back additional info besides the thumbnail, just trying to do it the best way we can.
3) Do want to do something about those interviews!
4) My goal is NO content links in the left column, meaning artist news right under the ad under the calendar. That goal is getting harder now that we are bringing in additional content info, which uses up a lot more space.
5) We'll be switching our skins over time so I'm looking forward to a triumphant skyline return. :)
6) We will quite possibly ditch star scores completely and go back to all numbers.

Attempted switch to Unicode but it caused a ton of issues, so it's gonna have to become it's own big project now. And I'm pretty sure PNG works, it just doesn't mention it.
scrolled through all of the pages, so i wouldn't get too much into
things that already have been said. right now it comes down to this:
- as many people have mentioned the site feels overpowered and
it's due to the massiv amount of new textures and the artist's wallpapers.
i know you guys want to support your key players, but an option to switch
these off - if that's even possible - would be a huge relief.
(i won't bitch about 'em ads! mamas need to be paid!)
this sort of leads over to the following ...
- as i recall customizability of userpages was supposed to
be enhanced with the update but now, there is not even
user-banners anymore. i guess you guys plan on bringing that back,
but an author's userpage is something that should feature wallpapers,
customizable headers to the sections ("latest news", etc.) and such,
not the frontpage, which then (cleaned up) really benefits from the
- what really "bothers" me the most is, that audio
submissions no longer show the score on the userpage, since there's
actually space for it and that you don't have a summarizing page
like the "manage audio"-one anymore, that gives you an insight on
how your submissions are doing! navigating through EVERY, SINGLE,
ONE is a huge downer, sry :(
(to be fair, that's an "i like myself some overview"-issue only)
otherwise i can't find anything that's not to like, or even to hate.
everything works fine so far, though i get logged out sometimes.
but that's probably accounted for by the ever-updating server.
i'll be glad to see how the site develops from here on out.
