Components that worked in the previous design are now suddenly broken in addition to all the things that are still broken from the former layout such as the charts & data page, aspects of the site that used to be organized and located all in one page are now shattered apart needlessly and thus made overly convoluted and useful features such as having the ability to chose between quoting a post and simply replying to it, as opposed to having them fused together, were gutted out completely.

I thought this redesign was going to fix everything that was wrong with the former design, not add more problems to the pile.

Oh, also, inb4 mods start calling users idiots for complaining about design and programming flaws.

I don't like the redesign... or not used to it yet... I don't know something about this glowing orange and colors make it feel weird... I liked the old newgrounds the black and orange was better... also this pixlated level picturs are weird and the portal is weird... EVERYTHING about this redesign is Weird!

or am I just not used to it yet... could be that... we will wait and see...

P.S. I liked voting 5 flashes to get Exp.. what's happed to that? I cant see if I am earning any Exp... :\

I don't care that much, because I didn't like the previous design either, I preferred the one preceding that. This one is overly flashy though.

Yeah, I fucking hate it, and for once I'm actually being pretty fucking serious.

Did not see that coming.

I rather like it. Yup.

I like the redesign. I also like the fact that moderation seems more lax. There was a point where I felt discouraged from posting because I'd be banhammered for reasons that were both minor and unintentional.

Miss this site, glad to be back. As a somewhat oldNGer, I think the site is in a nice place.


And just like that....he was gone...

I just feel its sort of way too crowded. Not that I dislike the redesign, its just a bit too much stuff all over the place. I guess its because over the years people have wanted to expand the site beyond Flash, which is why its crowded. I don't think the designs the problem, its the amount of stuff in the design.

It kinda feels like the 05 design. Only a little bit though. I miss the level icons being everybody's avatars.

The new layout looked good at first, but now it just feels too flashy. I'd pick the old layout any day.
There are a few things I miss. The new level icons are small. And with the profile images above the levels in the forums, it makes it seem that there's no purpose in leveling up now.
A lot of people are abusing the new emotes. And honestly.. I think half of them are retarded.
But the one thing that I truly miss is the old auras. Especially the fab aura, but.. Whatever. I'm getting used to the new stuff.

too much neon "gatorade' colors hurts my eyes,remember when newgrounds had nswf then the new layout removed that IT WAS A IMPROVEMENT but now there is a neon orange lady with huge orange tits on the side witch is not a improvement

the point i'm trying to make is that this design IMPROVED NOTHING

You will all get used to it.

It's been said that this redesign is going to be a continual process of updating, there fore, it's only going to get better from here.
I, for one, love the redesign. I feel its a splash of cold water on the face of the community. Exactly what we, or at least I, needed.

Then again, that could just be my opinion.

Fuck, I kinda like it now. By the time talk of another redesign comes along I'll be talking about how much I love it and don't want it to change.

At first I was like, "WTF? Different colors? Super gay." Now I'm all like, "meh." I think I'm getting used to it.

I was searching for this thread... I knew it had to be out here somewhere.

1: Do I hate the redesign? = Yes
2: Will my hatred of it bring back the original style NG? = No
3: Do I have at least a few questions about the redesign? = Yes
4: If I did some searching around, could I find the answers myself? = Probably
5: Am I too lazy to search, and would rather just ask someone to link an answer to my questions? = Yes
6: Did I only read the first 2 or 3 posts in this thread, and just add my own reply / questions? = Yes

I'm assuming that I still need to vote on 5 submissions every 24 hours for my points to be tallied? Long time ago, you actually had to manually click a button to deposit your points. Then a change happened that instantly added your points as soon as you voted on 5 submissions. Er... So, even though we don't get a message saying: "Your points have already been deposited, but thanks for doing the overtime" Is this still the case? No more than 5 counted votes a day? Or can we vote higher than 5 now?

Can someone please attach a link to a list of the new level pictures ?

-Thanks

Well, I gotta admit. I don't understand how the stars are related to Newgrounds, but I'm still wondering how you hate the re-design. Seriously, I think it's freaking awesome.

More navigable layout. Twice as many emoticons. Uploadable avatars... People complain that it's too bright.

I really dislike the new redesign. There was nothing wrong with the old one. They could have just put in a few small changes over a period of a few years. They changed too much, too fast. It has many loading problems. The pictures are different in size and take up too much space on the front page. The games with medals are all messed up too. I can't tell which game is newest because some moron put them in alphabetical order. They should just change it back, or at least give users the chance to use the old site.

I'm pretty much used to it already and I think it's alright. It's still a bit buggy, though. Being able to have your own icon is cool, though a lot of people make the page look ugly with lame ones.

No one knows where to find a master list of the new level pics?

Also, next to my name, it says "blank slate" ??? what is that? and is there something I can do to make it say anything differently?

Go to your account settings. Near the bottom, you'll find a selection of different auras such as audiophile, movie buff, gamer, melancholy, and others.
