GOOD NEWS:

You may need to clear your cache but the voting notifications are now back in place! You will see your voting power, B+P bonus, countdown and a deposit notification.

The new thumbnail info is also up and running as of yesterday - what do you think? It shows author info on the front page and scores everywhere else. Some of the genres overlap the content rating... We're still pondering the best solution there.

BAD NEWS:

Remember how I said we have a surprise coming on Friday? It's being postponed for a short bit, we'll just surprise you when it happens. There is still a game coming out Friday that will be a big hit so show up for that!

Aigis has announced the winners of Comic Jam 2!

1st Place - RAIN, by Deathink

  • RAIN
    RAIN by deathink

    Hello Boys and Girls, This is my entry for the NEWGROUNDS.COM comic jam #2. I was the illustrator on this project, and my writing partner was none other than the pornographic prognosticator hims self, Mr. TOM FULP (you may have heard of him). The name of this piece is "RAIN" named after the theme given by Aigis, I had a little bit of a late start (I couldn't start until Saturday, one day after it started), but I worked diligently around the clock, living off of nothing but coffee and peanut M&M's (I don't recommend it), but I finally finished it. Tom sent over two stories, I guess because he wasn't satisfied with the first one he made, but luckily he sent that one too. My only stipulation to him was to keep them real short and simple, about two or three sentences at most, when I read what he sent over I took a couple of hours to decided which to choose and decided to be a little experimental. The two stories seemed to share a linear path, or should I say, I noticed I could force them down the same path. Anyway, my right hand is really sore and my ass is killing me (which I hear is pretty common when working with Tom "drum role please") so I am going to go get drunk and celebrate the end of this ridiculously insane drawling marathon. I can't wait to read all the other entries. P.S. I love comic books, I think I have a couple thousand... Lovingly; M.B. DeathInk

3rd Place: Rain, by LuckyDesign - Link

Thank you everyone who participated and congrats to the winners!

You can help Kried win a film making competition by voting for The Safety Gnome! Check out the films in the competition then submit your vote via the list at the bottom of that page.

I should really be reminding people that we ARE doing Pico Day this year on April 28th. I need to sort out what the prizes will be, they might be kinda low-key this year.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I like this design a lot. It gives me the information I need to decide if it's worth clicking on.

The Farm was my favourite. But hey. Second place is still good. Congrats.

Okay. Sure, I'll give him a vote.

Oh thank Christ. I was actually just wondering about that. Good to know we'll still be having it. It's my second favorite NG holiday, next to Madness Day.

It wasn't a game that was postponed - the game launching tomorrow was always scheduled for tomorrow.

My only real request though is for the ability to delete flashes and projects again, but keep up the good work!

The stars are in the bug list. And un-publish / delete is coming.

That was kind of inconvenient so good to see it's been resolved.

Looking forward to the surprise, whatever it may be.

I noticed you changed the calendar format so that it's now a simple list instead of actually resembling a calendar. Is it possible to add more spots to it now? So that people might know of events even farther ahead of time? Maybe 6 or 8 instead of 4?
