Wow... this is simply impressive. There is no other way to put it. I thought Newgrounds was spiffy before, but this seriously blows other websites out of the water.

I love the backgrounds and how their colors kind of correspond to Ng's 'colors'; the background on the main page is orange-ish/yellow, the judgment page background is purple, etc. That's really neat. I love the new emoticons, I love how clean, simple, and sleek everything looks, from the forum and userpages to the portals and such (I'm glad you kept the classic movie/game portal - I'll probably still use that for a bit).

The only things I'm apprehensive about are the new icons and auras -- not a huge deal, I just liked the other ones better. I also liked the headers that used to be in the userpages (now replaced with ads). As for the game and movie thumbnails on the front page - I do like them being larger and clearer, but I sort of miss the short descriptions that came along with them! It's nice to see those if I am in a rush and really want to be selective about what I would like to watch.

So far, this has exceeded my expectations. Newgrounds feels even more like 'home' than it did before, which I wasn't anticipating. It feels actually much more catered to its users and contributors than ever before, which is what Newgrounds' foundation is to begin with (along with its amazing staff, of course!). You guys did an absolutely astounding job; I hope other websites don't start doing redesigns that are this awesome!

I'm so proud to be a part of this site! Time to start submitting stuff, huh?

Boop boop beep boop.

OMG!!! loving the new design already!!! i do have 1 complaint tho: the fact that our instincts are wired to reject change because it isn't what we're used to & it breaks our pattern/routine.
On a side note, wouldn't ot suck to have the site taken down bt sopa (especially just after such a huge update)?


Thanks to me...

I don't recall anyone ever saying "The Newgrounds UPDATE is right around the corner"... Last I checked, anyone and everyone said, "The Newgrounds REDESIGN is right around the corner".

Why you'd expect and small update when a complete redesign has been in the works for years is beyond me.

Personally, I quite like the new site... Especially since the Audio portal just got a million times more awesome.

After the redesign, the site suddenly runs like shit on my phone. I'm not a big fan of the way out looks, either. It looks too much like other forums.

I think there should be more than 50 most recent on the flash portal classic. There is a blank space there as it is.

Nice job guys! Project system looks awesome and I can't wait to use it in the years to come. It has a few glitches though. When assigning credits to the different project members (artist, programmer, etc.) It seems to do this weird glitch where changing one user's credit will reset the other's. then when you change that it resets the first one, etc. Also, some of the text spills over after you select one of the longer credits on the drop down menu. Hope this helps, and thanks NG staff for a cool website.

Awesome design in my opinion. But it kinda feels awkward first time around. Oh well.
