If you missed it, read the redesign launch post and leave some feedback.

If you can't view any Flash content on NG, CLEAR YOUR CACHE. Chrome updated this week with a quirk that required us to add a mime-type to the display code.

We are processing all the feedback and making a big list of necessary improvements. We also have a fully-loaded buglist that is being cleared off one by one.

Regular voting power and deposit notifications will be restored (that wasn't intended), stats will get more prominence, Classic Portal will get back some missing stuff and we're gonna try really hard to make everyone happy with how content itself is showcased.

Until then, enjoy the Best of January!

January was a fun month. No big surprises among the winners. I enjoyed Minecraft TNA, wish it placed higher.

I think it's pretty cool that Abobo's Big Adventure is at #1 in games, I thought the game was really fun to play.

Best wishes for the redesign!

It's good to hear regular voting power, deposit notifications and the stats on the main page are coming back again.

As for the monthly awards, there aren't many surprises as far as I can see. That Abobo would get the #1 spot was a given. Congrats to all the winners!

Thank you. Those were really my only concerns with the new design. Please oh please put the lit portal high on the to-do list though. I REALLY want that thing. =(

I'm glad that Epic Pie time placed and I like most of the top fives. I do think that Abobo was a little overhyped and I would've preferred to see This is the Only Level 3 or Reemus in the top spot, I'm not too upset about it.

Don't get me wrong though, I still liked Abobo's Big Adventure.

January was a great month for flash gamers. It also makes me happy to hear that stats "will get more prominence" and that various stuff will get fixed and improved. Speaking of fixing stuff, uploading an image for a newspost still doesn't work.

It does work for me. Never did not, and may latest newpost is not that young.
