This redesign is irritating... Feb. 29th, 2012 @ 09:50 PM Reply

Ya'know, at first I thought the redesign was awesome! then the more I'm on here, the more I realize that this redesign is just WAY too cluttered. There's just too much going on and the arrangements of the videos are just so compacted next to each other. It's actually turning me away from Newgrounds...

I'm not saying the old design was amazing, but this one is almost as if Tom and the team tried WAY too hard. To the Newgrounds team. 'KISS', Keep It Simple, Stupid.

I also CANNOT stand the new star system for rating! It's so ambiguous! I preferred the number scale because at least then it was accurate. I could determine whether a film that was rated at 9.1 was not as good as one rated at 9.5 or 9.6

Four stars plus a sliver of a 5th tells me nothing.

Ugh, done ranting for now.

I don't like the way the games are arranged, there's no fighting genre now.

I just don't like the way it's arranged in general. It's all so 'shoved together'.

I've been on Newgrounds since late 2003 early 2004, and I've loved this place for such a long time, but this is the first time in which I actually think that I could just walk away from this. It's just that ugly.

Tom Fulp and the rest of the Newgrounds team, consider doing a re-redesign. Follow your older style and space things out more appropriately, also dont shove so much into people's faces in regards to design. :/

You will adapt, as we all did back in the day.

I do love it, but there are some things they took away that I wished they'd bring back. For ex, there's no way to check and see who favorited your songs.

I would really like for people to stop bitching about the redesign. Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean Tom and co. will take the time to change it all back.

Shut up.


This is my signature. It is a nice signature.

But how else are they supposed to get attention and get quoted on the BBS?

Shut up.

Couldn't be anymore truer than this, and I'm pretty sure the 07 and other designs got lots of complaints either and they didn't change instantly.
I already got used to it, man up and grow a pair OP.

I hope to be the voice of reason here.

Oh hey, EJR, I didn't know you were still alive.

There have been many, many, many, many, many threads commenting (or 'ranting' as some may take it) about the redesign and what they don't like about it. Aside from the threads that are complete and utter flame, I think Tom finds these threads useful! They help him and the rest of the staff understand the community's thoughts about the redesign.

All-and-all, I don't think the user that created this thread wanted the entire thing reverted, but he was simply pointing out properties of the redesign that he considered faults!

I hope that shed a bit of logic on these matters.

This redesign is so awesome, and I am utterly familiar with it in pretty much every way. When I wring my brain for things to complain about, only the most utterly trivial details come to mind.

It's not that hard a 4.5/5 would equal the 9/10.

4.0/5 stars would equal 8/10.

3.5 stars = 7/10

Not that different if you think about it. Get over it and adept like everyone did in the redesign before this one, that one, and the one before that. Also note they're still trying to fix bugs and stuff

The only thing about the op i agree with was the star system the numbered ratings made NG different.


Does anyone actually read these?

As for me, I like the new redesign.
But having troubles in mine... (can't see the emoticons)
But about the way flashes are categorized, yeah, it seems cluttered.
But you'll get used to it.
Either leave or deal with it. B]

The website background is so bad, they should exchange it.
