Does this work for you?
7 Days of Movies
7 Days of Games

Let me know if something seems lacking there... So far my experience has been that I can find fun stuff a lot more easily. You can also sort by score or views (those are sorted by date).

No, I saw that. It doesn't work for me. That gives me the movies and games that have been submitted in the past 7 days (currently feb1 to feb 7). I need the movies/games from the week ending on Feb 1. I've used the "best of the week" listing for years now. I don't watch the movies daily. Instead, I always wait for it to get on a static list and then I watch all the animations/games from the previous week. You took the "view all" option that used to be on the classic portal.

So... the only way to watch all of the previous week animations is looking through the month option then? That's a lot of searching... I haven't missed a full week of animations since before I became a mod here but I don't see any realistic way to view all the movies/games that were submitted by February 1st now (other then the top 15 anyway).

I suppose I can maybe work around this 7 day thing in the future but it's not gonna be simple as having one static list for a week. I would really like the "view all" buttons put back in for the classic portal.


Collecting NG's undiscovered gems has been a hobby of mine since 2005. I am curently posting them on my blog.

Feel free to check them out and tell me what you think.

Wow, I love it, it's weird thinking that the linked pic on Google from a while back was actually legit though. I've got some work to do now, auras to set, profiles to organize and whatnot.

My list of things I like and don't like about the new redesign.

Things I like.

- Nice and Eye Catching, Nice job Egoraptor did on the background art on FP. Havn't bother to see who drew the rest.
- The new Project system. I looked at it once and shat a brick!
- Easy access to user stuff like the Dump and Project thing.
- The Portal Pages, much easier to browse and navigate.
- YOU CAN UPLOAD ARCHIVES TO DUMP!!! WHOOO!!! Will save butt loads of time when collaborating.
- You can also upload .as files now. :3
- I overall just cool

Things I don't like.

- No Lightbox option for flash games and Movies. I really, REALLY HOPE YOU ADD THAT!
- No option to lump Moives and Games as one on my user page. What if some one has only made like on game like 10 years ago and has made nothing but movies since. It would be a constant reminder that they haven't made one in a bazillion years.
- No Description of game and movies on FP... Not even a score? How am I suppose know if I wanna see it, I'm not an idiot who goes by pretty pictures. I need details!
- STARS EVERY WHERE! I HATE STARS! We need numbers instead of star! or atleat make is when you hover your mouse over the stars it shows you the real score... Not the 'Vague visual representation of it might actually be..." score.
- When you click on a category in the art portal there are too few results on the page especially since the art Icons are smaller then the Flash ones.
- Icon sizes no longer uniform... I'm a symmetry whore...
- The fact that I have to get used the new layout... :(

Overall Nice job guys! It's really Cool.

But I still have a soft spot for the old site layout.

Well, I had a quick look around. My account, the flash movies and how to vote and review, the forums. Although I don't know how do everything right at this minute, I think it's a good step. Just a quick question, who is the girl to the right of this message?

Question: If we're moving towards a one-vote-per-user system does that mean scores will have to keep track of people's voting power. Otherwise, if I'm only allowed one vote, I would withhold so I could vote when I have more power.

It's no big deal, but I think it would be better if (in the forums) the signature text appeared in a darker tone than the "main" text. I don't know, it kind of drags too much attention to it.

This is due to use of a read only server that's impacting the real-time-ness of the forums. Should get sorted out as the site starts running better and things can get switched around.

I'm going nostalgiafag, but can we at least have options to change to previous designs? This one is okay, eye candy and all, but changing to previous designs would be a nice feature for nostalgiafags. I mean, I did miss the pre-2007 design.

The redesign looks great! Graphically sexier.

What I don't like is no link for the Portal.

As an OG NG user and fan of the portal, I think the 'Classic Portal' deserves its own link in the navigation menu.
ThePortal is what keeps uscoming back to Newgrounds, artists and fans alike.

I thought it was awesome when they had flash movies on the front page advertising the portal with the Transformers music playing in the background. (whatever happened to that song?)

Overall, great renovation!

My first post after redesign! SO different! I have so much more to explore around the site. Excellent job, Tom and the NG team, I am very impressed with what I am seeing! Expect me to still be around at the next redesign.

Holy fucking shrapnel. You guys outdid youselves this time! :D

The whole design overall looks incredible. I'll explore it a bit more later, but what I saw so far is very well-done. The whole Grafitti-styled graphics combine a lot with the site (and the tankmen), the separation between Games and Movies is also nice and...

...yeah, you get the point. I like it a lot.

That's been a big debate topic. We were attempting to reduce clutter on the page BUT it was pretty convenient. Will continue to be pondered.
