I much prefer the old Newgrounds instead of the new one. Right now it's so cluttered and not user-friendly. There is not more flash portal, instead is a games and movies section with pictures displaying no information on them unlike the old reliable flash portal.

I have more complaints but I'm using a school computer and I can't take too much time doing this. If anyone has any complaints post them here and hopefully get Tom's attention to this matter.

It just takes some time to get used to it.

But the old portal is still there

Yeah, I found it and I'm trying my hardest to get used to new design but it's not really sinking in.

Exept the old flash portal, which is STILL HERE Only got a name for the most part, this time the icons are suitably sized, and you get a name if you hover over it, it's more informative and eye grabbing than before.

What do you like "aboot" the new design? Maybe you can change my views on the new Newgrounds.

I love the new design, makes Newgrounds even more addicting. Also there is a link where it says "Classic Portal". Before you make any posts about complaints make sure you have explored everything.

With the eye catching backgrounds and a better organizational system, it's awesome so far. Change had to happen after so many years, but i'm glad they took the time to do it right.

It's less informative than it was before the redesign.

Additional information may appear as you hover your cursor over the new images, but it's still not as much as it used to be. No describtion, no score, nothing ...

Aside from reporting bugs, I think users should not be allowed to make 'I don't like this!' threads for at least a week after the redesign, maybe two weeks.

You may start off not liking something, then come to find that you actually prefer it. These things take time, though! It's only Thursday after all.

I personally feel like this site is taking a step in the right direction. Yes, there are some nostalgic things I'll miss, but soon this design will become nostalgic. There are lots of new features that I can't wait to use, and Tom and everyone have even more additions they plan on including over time. I think Newgrounds needed to be refreshed. It will also likely draw in more users/visitors, and that is definitely a plus (though I hope it doesn't become a new 'Youtube!').


Boop boop beep boop.

Took me like a day to start getting used to this new design. I just think user stats such as levels, b/p and whistles should still be in the main page, but well, that's just me, a stat whore.

You'll just get used to it sooner or later.

This redesign is probably the biggest change Newgrounds ever went through. It's pretty scary how this design doesn't even LOOK like Newgrounds anymore, but it's still pretty damn awesome! I have to agree about the cluttered bit, and I do wish to see titles and descriptions among all of those icons, but oh well. I could get used to this.

I'm not sure why they eliminated the javascript tooltips on the portal page for mouseover events. There was a definite utility in those boxes for quick-browsing scores, etc, that has been lost now.

Another example of a feature that seems to have taken a step backward.

Actually I really don't like how some of the stats have become useless. My b/p level does nothing anymore, and that's not something I'm ever going to get used to.

It does nothing YET. This is actually a glitch in the system, if I remember correctly.

The blams and saves system will actually work properly later. This is actually a glitch in the system, if I remember correctly.

Whoops. Said it wrong.

I feel like if people actually read Tom's redesign post maybe people would stop complaining about things...
But no matter what people are always going to complain when there's a change to anything on the internet
