At 47 minutes ago, Austerity wrote: 1. Why are the blam/save point boosts for voting power removed?

2. Why are the sticker order rankings removed?

3. Why are turds of the week removed?

1. Accidental, will get that back running.

2. We'll have to address that. With so much to do to get this redesign done, some stuff ends up left on the sideline.

3. They have always been an abuse magnet, not sure if we really need to encourage someone making the worst submission. It was originally meant to show the well-intentioned stuff that was so bad it's good, but instead it became a race to the bottom. I know it's a mainstay on the site though... Once we come up for air we'll re-evaluate stuff like this.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I'm still getting the "connection was reset" error quite often. I assume this is just a bit of a server hiccup?

guess what? i don't hate the redesign. while i hate time line on face book and the "new" youtube i dont see anything wrong with new newgrounds.

it looks stylish and fresh. i didn't notice any new features or old features that are gone yet- just that stuff got rearranged but ive got no problem with that. looks fresh and modern. just a shame by avatar is suddenly gone on my user page and that header thing I had on my own user page doesn't seem to exist anymore either. oh well

An Archive of wall skins would really be something...
Have a choice of say 4-5 red based skins for the Movies category for instance

You can filter by rating on games and movies so there's no need for it.

My only complaint is that the custom user icons are in the forums now. I would have preferred to keep it exclusively level icons.

Am I the only one having problems with the re-design? For some odd reason everytime I try to play a game the pre-loader won't appear it just has the little red x inside the white box in the upper left hand corner of the screen do I need to update something on my cpu or is it a site problem?

NG Staff and contributors, it's beautiful! All of you who worked on this did a brilliant job. It's going to take some getting used to and is definitely a major shock to the system (thank you so much for leaving the classic portal intact while some of us adjust to the changes). I'm not sure if I like the new level icons as much as the old ones, I might just need to get used to them. I do love the new auras and their descriptions, but we're missing one that implies homosexuality, as well as one for stat whores (the latter is admittedly more useful, but the former is tradition). Thank you all for working hard for a site the rest of us get to use for free. I don't think I'm out of line in saying that everyone appreciates the effort and congratulates your success.

Pros:

-More emotes on the forums
-Profile icons show up on forums
-New level icons and reorganized icons
-Site looks fantastic
-COOKIE CUTTER ACCOUNTS NO LONGER SHOW UP ON TOP 10 FLASH CONTENT SUBMITTERS!! WAY TO GO TOM!! <3
-Site design is fantastic, new stuff everywhere!!
-Image sizes have been bumped from 150k to 200k, fantastic

Cons:

-Reply is pretty much replay and quote, give us a Reply and then a Reply and Quote button, I'm sure not everyone wants to quote someone else all the time :P
- Can't deposit points at the moment it seems
-Farewell choosing your own auras, whatever kind of user you declare yourself as is what will determine your aura
- No stats page for the audio portal like there is with the flash portal
- Total Vote Power is absent but this has already been stated and nice to see you all working on that
-Some minor glitches here and there such as pages sometimes not loading but I trust that shall be fixed quickly
-Move/Game reviews are separated now

not really a con, but will just take time to get used to is all

Overall:

-Site looks fantastic and well done
-Will take a bit of time to get readjusted ad used to
-Looking forward to having and seeing a lot of fun stuff this year

Thanks for the redesign Tom and staff!!

Two minor things that ore bothering me:
When I click "reply" it quotes the entire post I clicked "replied" to. Instead of taking me to a blank post that I can fill in. I have to delete all the extra quote text.

Can you bring back the "reply" and "reply and quote" buttons? I liked those buttons.

Also I don't like how all stats are hidden, can't you have them show again in the user-pages?

Okay, so "Overall" there is much to love. ;P I do agree that a single method of Reviews / Ratings would be an improvement.

Maybe have a Drop Down "Quick Review" box where you "Rate the Submission" with an option to leave an "Extended Review" which navigates to the current Review area where you can "Fine Tune" your score and leave a longer review. I'll admit that I don't know enough about the Back End Stats for each submission (How the "Ratings" and "Score" are measured for a submission) to understand how this would positively or negatively affect the scoring process. But tying these together sounds "Sound" and leaving the current "Setup" (Or some semblance of it) allows people to contribute evenly to the score without "Needing" to sit down and compose a review, while allowing (And ideally through this "Encouraging" ) people to provide at least "Some" Feedback.

One thing I miss already: The "Other Submissions by this Author" Drop Downs. There's room beneath the "Stats Info and More" (Or in, as that fits "More") Box for that, and it was a feature I used rather extensively. ;P

I left the old design with an open mind and came to this one with the same open mind.

I have no complaints so far, bugs are to be expected of course and they aren't going to make me complain about it. It's a fresh new look, and it is a great one at that.

Keep up the great work, you guys made many people proud!


Yeah, whatever.
