I think that's just part of the art background rather than being an actual warning sign.

Yeah, and they were supposed to rotate those pictures too. That's more offensive than a smoking hot chick. My nerd needs will be fulfilled, by Fulp!

That was my first thought when seeing the new background. It just seems tacky to advocate smoking right in your face whenever your decide to hit up NG. Not to mention there are tons of kids who browse the site, and if my Psychology AP class has taught me anything, this along with all the other paid for smoking adverts all around them only reinforces that smoking is "cool". Sooner or later they will try their first cigarette just to see what the fuss is about. Soon enough they're hooked.

I don't see why every user on newgrounds assumes it's to "troll" people. Seriously, just grow up. I realize you're a teenager and deep into your rebellion phase, but don't piss all over a good point.

2012
still calling people trolls

All that being said, I think the Skins idea is a good one. But really Tom, remove the smoking background.

I don't care if OP is trolling or whatever.

I hate the forums background. Worst ever. I hate being forced to look like I'm on a porno smoking site every time I come here it's fucking annoying.

It's ok kiddo. I realize that you're a teenager and you're all into your rebellion phase against the general will of the community.

I suggest you find something worthwhile to rebel against however. You sound like a spoiled little cunt.

Really Tom, keep the smoking background.

The background never bothered me, not even a little. I hardly paid attention to the smoking. It's probably because my grandpa's a smoker and I'm used it. But seriously, stop complaining. It makes you sound like a 30 year old soccer mom.

Says the dude who randomly chose me to start an argument.... who said I was rebelling against the general will of the community? I was just giving my opinion. OOH so rebellious and angsty. Grow up. All of you in this thread are just counterculture losers who think it's cool to go against morally sounding opinions. I'm sorry I don't think the smoking background is oh so cool. I smoke, and I know how peer pressure works. When kids' role models smoke, it makes them want to smoke. All the 12-17yearolds that browse this site daily will have smoking and newgrounds associated in their little brains. Imagine if your idol hung a ciggie in front of your face everyday. Eventually you'd get curious.

Harsh words from a guy called DickBuns. Do you kiss your mother with my mouth?

Really Tom, keep the smoking background.

Tom listens to reason and I'm sure the background will be changed. Good day, sir.

also you can go fuck yourself

That's cute. You're trying to shove morality on us. There are no role models depicted on this site that smoke. Cartoons? Sure. Using your logic, FLASHES THAT HAVE SMOKING FROM THE PORTAL. ALL THREADS ABOUT SMOKING ARE TO BE DELETED AND DESTROYED. SMOKING IS TERRIBLE, BUT THE COCKJOKES AND OTHER DEVIANT SHIT ARE OK.

LOL. Get a life.


Harsh words from a guy called DickBuns. Do you kiss your mother with my mouth?

Yes. I do. If I'm harsh it's because I don't have the time to eloquently explain why your reasoning is retarded. Why bring up my username? It's irrelevant. Well. Unless you're going for the "HIS OPINION CAN'T BE VALID, JUST LOOK AT HIS USERNAME" fallacy.


Tom listens to reason and I'm sure the background will be changed. Good day, sir.

Indeed. I know he listens to reason. I've met the guy. Morality = reason

also you can go fuck yourself

Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? LOL hypocrisy. I can go and fuck myself. My dick is pretty big yo.

So you're basing your post on an 18 year old report?

Does that parent want to see this background image on the front page?

I don't think most parents care. There's loads of people who smoke out in the public, I don't see the difference between seeing real life people smoking and a drawn picture of a girl smoking.

Besides, there's way more bad content on newgrounds.

Really, rethink it. Like, right now.

I doubt the admins cares about your opinion and I also doubt they read the forums that often.

The bbs is not full of trolls. I think you're confusing trolls with people who make fun of others or are jackasses.

How about we have a smoking section of Newgrounds, and a non-smoking section?

There's a no smoking sign on the left. The bigger issue is how simple-minded your associates are if a cartoon influences their decisions. If that's the case then they're fucked if they ever see a Joe Camel ad.
