I can't find any problems in the real portal, but I did have a dream last night...

I had just submitted a flash movie (In the real world). I watched its score go up and down until it reached a score of 1.07. At that point, it had been about a half an hour since I had submitted it (usually my stuff gets blammed in 10 minutes). So I decided to go to sleep. (Now we're gettin to the dream...) My dream was that I was still at my computer, voting on my movie. OK. So I voted 5. My movie's score didn't go up, or down, so I tried to vote 5 again. I succeeded, but still nothing happened. I was starting to get freaked out (Cuz usually I can raise a movie's score by at least 0.01) So I voted 5 again. I never got the "Error: You have already voted on this today" message screen. So I just kept voting and voting and voting...Until I woke up. When I woke up, I checked my email, and I think you know what I found: "Your portal submission "3D Tank Driver" has been removed."

I just thought everyone might like to hear my dream. That's all. No real errors, or problems.

The ability to add flashes to a collection? That's going to be good :)

... As long as you set up a good moderating system for it

Nice Work, Liljim and Stamper! One problem tho'! Some of the advertisements are invisible! They are clickable, but the picture of the ad shows on only if you select show picture! One of these is the "J-Lo Exposed" ad.

The new layout surprised me, looks nice but a bit crouded, oh well, it certainly ads a new shine.

GReat idea lets swear at ppl with low points and tell them there n00bs and since you didn't tell them chances are they would've spammed "who is gfoxcook" but some1 answered it so its ok

and the lay out looks cool

It might help if you detailed your problem.

1. Do you see the vote panel?
2. When you click one of the voting options, what happens?
3. What Operating System, Internet Browser, etc are you running?

If you were voting away before the changes, then unless you or someone who uses the machine you're at has changed some settings, all should be as is. Because nothing has changed in the code with respect to functionality of the site.

It's not a bug - your browser isn't set to run CSS as it should.

Can't wait for the whole site to be newified. You are going to bother with the whole site right? Eventually at least. Running off 3 different layouts is odd enough..

Just go to View, then choose the text size that you would like.

Nice. I do like the portal's new look. But the only complaint I have is when I try to look at my reviews it states my name where it used to state the flash title.

the slower speed will prevent as many overloads and the system crashing and also reduce spamming from people posting 50 movies or just hitting zero on movies

You might have a point on the latter, but... there's already a 2 submissions per day limit on posting movies, so... "posting 50 movies," unless you were intentionally MASSIVELY exaggerating, is mega-hyperbole. The most I've seen at once, BTW, was 10. 2 x 5 accounts worth. But you can bet all those accounts were deleted soon thereafter.

Shut your face, if you don't like it, fuck off to some other site, they're not gonna change it just for you.
Oh, by the way, whoevers idea it was to put "free BLAM" in the whistle blowing section is a genious, and I adore you, even though I used to blow the whistle on free blams anyway...it was hard to say whether it was unsuitable or malicious..not that any of that mattered but still..."I'm lovin it."

I don't agree with Flourman on his first statement (but still, he wasn't being abusive, so he has a right to voice his opinion, don't tell him to leave the site), but the second statement is kinda true, and leads to the slowness Darklilangel was talking about. Some people seem to think that only people with slow connections are experiencing slower than normal NG-ness, but I have a cable modem, and nothing about my connection has changed in the past week. While pictures being in the process of loading doesn't prevent you from doing most things, especially if you remember where buttons that are images are and what they do... I've noticed that the ~60 pics on any given flash entry page do take at least twice as long to load on my computer as the old design's pics did.

I wish there was a bit more redundancy (using the same pics in different places on a page so they can just be loaded once and pop up everywhere they're used at once), but it's not a huge deal. I'm thinking about fiddling with my settings to see if I can get it to stop redownloading pics each time I go to a new entrypage, though.

No, it is smaller than the old way when viewed with normal text size in your browser. I'd tell you to raise your default font size from Normal to Larger (+1), but... then you'll just have the same misalignment issues that I and a few other people who've posted about how the new pages look with larger fonts are experiencing, so... maybe you should lower your resolution or sit closer to the computer. #;-}>

Where are you accessing your reviews from? This was a problem 2 days ago, but I'm pretty sure it's already fixed from all angles. I just went into your profile, clicked your reviews link, and the flash titles are all displaying above your reviews, so...

I'm not "answerin for Liljim and Stamp" and no, I'm not a "private owner" of NG. What the hell does that mean, anyway?

As others went on to inform you, I'm a mod, a longtime NG user, and I happen to be generally helpful. Maybe not as much as Newgrundling (another mod who's been gone for half a year now due to a horrible, horrible disease (online-link-game-itis), but I do what I can, as do many of the people on the Where is/How to? forum I call my home here on NG BBS.

I have had my account a bit longer than Dinotron, Haurashima, but not much longer (February 2000 versus September 2000... 4-digit ID versus 5-digit ID)... so fortunately you were partly right there, but you also implied you've been here longer than him, and your 500,000+ ID suggests otherwise. My point is that that's never good ammunition to pull out (who's been on the site longer, or has more points, or whatever... that has little to do with the BBS). I do thank you for trying to "defend" me from any perceived slight, but it wasn't necessary.

I'm fairly confident, as well, that Dinotron didn't mean much of anything with the tone of his text, but... eh... it rubbed me the wrong way, too, so I understand.

I've been talking to liljim for the past year via e-mail, yes, and coincidentally enough, Stamper e-mailed me for the first time today (about this topic, actually), so... BINGO, you called that one, at least. #;-}>

Hes also a mod on the BBS.

Guilty as charged.

I'm pretty sure the main reason he was flaming Dinotron is that he took Dinotron's "who da fuck does gfoxcook think he is?" type attitude in a negative way, and he just used the low points/presumed newbieness as ammo, as I said, but you're right, let's cut the anti-noob vibe in the ass.
