I prefer the moderately low traffic. I'd hate to have to deal with 4chan-like posting by three hundred people at one time. The topics would expand too fast, no one would read anything, and we'd have too many idiots to deal with.


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

I've not been active on here in a long time, but I thought I'd come along and see this new redesign.

No one's keeping you here. Go find some other place to frequent.

If people were allowed to post more NSFW stuff, I guarantee you traffic would increase.

This. Also, there's nobody who ONLY uses the forums on NG.

i was never 1 for the forums but. The site is slowing down. But at the same time it isnt. The flash system used 2 b more community oriented. 4 instance almost every flash always had at least a page of reviews. and me personaly, ive spent months and months working on projects at a time only 2 have them with 3 reviews. its rdiculus. really. no 1 rly cares about anyone anymore. im being honest. just honest...


Check out my anime! Its a flash series ive been doing since 2008!!!

I admit, there was a period back in 2008/2009'ish when I used to post more then I played/watched.

We used to come for the games and movies, but stay for the community.


It's the only way out!

The BBS won't die. The Audio Forum, Art Forum, and Clubs & Crews Forum get much traffic. Also the Politics Forum does indeed have it's fair share of political topics. I say we need to wipe General and the Video Game Forums and start from scratch. Also put Video Games back in General, it hasn't been helping anybody by separating the two.

The redesign seemed to have lured some more people to the BBS, although it looks like that effect was only short-lived. 2006 was definitely when the BBS had its peak in activity, although you can argue whether the forums were better back then. In all honesty, I think the forums are in a better shape right now as they were back then.

Now, now, pucker up. Things are quite alright. There's no one in the BBS? Go visit the audio portal. Write up some reviews. There are some very interesting grottos on Newgrounds. If you're lucky, you may just stumble upon one of them. There's much to do here. Don't worry.

maybe there should be ways of intergrating the forums with the features of newgrounds such as games and flashes as we know a lot of people actually come to newgrounds to use that stuff.

Yeah I tried talking about flash movies here on Newgrounds before. The General forum doesn't give a shit about Newgrounds flash movies.

The percentage of regulars among the users seems to have gone up, though. Half of the people that are online now have been on here longer than me, and I know quite a lot of them.

I wouldn't know, I just got here,
but what I will say is I got here because sites like Youtube, and 4chan are so immpersonal and crouded, I like the fact that submissions have to be rated, and passed in, I like the fact that you have to leave review, not just stupid comments, and these are the first forums I ran into in a while that acually seem pretty decent.
but that's just me...
