Best NG holiday!

Also I love the new way to vote, much much much better than the old way. I hated having to remember which positions I had already voted for.

This year we were thinking it would be fun to open the invite to include tributes and spoofs of ALL characters that have appeared on NG over the years. Just remember we have Madness Day in September so you should save your epic Madness stuff for that. What does everyone think of that idea? If you want to run with it, it would be best to get the blessing of the author you wish to pay homage to, especially if it's not a straight-up parody work. Let me know your thoughts.

I definitely support that idea, which inevitably would make Pico Day just become Newgrounds Day, but I'm fine with that! It also makes the tank awards more of a big event.

I love the new voting system! I always struggled with the old one.

I'm very glad you decided to continue with the Pico traditions.

Whoo-ray for our roots!

Dear Tom.

What's Pico Day?

Honestly I've been here for 3~4 years and I have no idea what it is.

Considering i am one of the 10,000 most active users (very rare) i find it's my duty to vote for the monthly winners.


Does anyone actually read these?

Pico day sounds good this year, looking forward to the wave of NG themed flashes, seeing what direction people can take Pico.

I'm liking the new monthly voting feature "10,000 most active users", seems better than the old system, gives everyone who counts a fair vote for months best.

Oh and some guy has a birthday on that a day or something, he was called... Ron? Think so. Happy birthday in advance Ron.

Very nice, looking forward to Pico Day. As for Monthly Voting I had to wait until the afternoon before it showed up on my profile rather than in the morning like it usually did with the last design.

Tank Awards aren't gonna happen on Pico Day this year, gonna pull that together as its own thing and just enjoy Pico Day. I feel like the awards loom over the whole day and why not have something cool to look forward to on a different day.

Well the intention is more that people pay tribute / parody OTHER stuff on NG, so releasing a new episode of your own cartoon wouldn't really fit the spirit of the day as much... We should consider some other event day like that maybe. Like NEW EPISODE day.

What browser are you using? And what version?
IE8 and Flash 11. Pic of specs below.

Hahahaha there's your answer. IE sucks balls. After working for a year and a half in web development, I have to say IE is a pain in the ass to get everything to work well. XD

I think this concept would be cool. A day where people create new characters and don't use any previous characters that exist. It would even most likely end up with at least a few people creating successful new series.

Eh, couldn't you just have a "Newgrounds day" for that? Honestly I was disappointed when the event lost its focus on Pico. Why even call it Pico Day anymore if he isn't the main event?

I'm pretty damn active in perspective of top 10,000. I'm guessing the criteria for 'active' is voting on flash submissions. God fucking dammit.
