Congrats to all the winners!

The March NAC has a St. Pattie's Day theme if you want to make a song to fit the festivities.

We moved some stuff around on the submission view page this week. Credits are now more condensed while putting better visibility on the "Favorite" button. We merged music credits into the main credits box since having its own header was a waste of vertical space. Same with additional info, which has been moved above "Related Stuff" and merged into the unified "Credits & Info" box. All that stuff should be easier to access and it saves a ton of space on submissions like Ace Pilot where 15 people are credited.

We also moved Artist News further up on the front page. My goal is to get it where the P-Bot picks are if we can manage to move daily winners into the content space on the right.

Josh from the Behemoth made that awesome LEGO Tank submission on the LEGO Cuusoo website. He's having even MORE success now with his EVE Online Rifter frigate - check it out and show some support!

The surprise is still coming and Pico Day is on April 28th!

Surprise is neither but it was part of why NG was down, some stuff borked while updates were being moved over from staging.

ABOBO is so powerful he came back in February to show he could defeat NY Shark.

Thanks for catching that though... Abobo won an award in January and was featured in the large promo space, but he wasn't added to the traditional "Featured Games" space until February, which made him end up showing as a nominee for both months. I updated the post... NY Shark is now #1 and Ace Pilot managed to make top 5. Still sad Memohuntress just missed top 5, that game is AMAZING and deserves tons more recognition:

Memohuntress not even in the Top 5. True art never gets appreciated.
Wonder when the surprise will appear.

Thanks for the votes everyone :)

merged into the unified "Credits & Info" box.

I noticed this all was condensed yesterday. I think it's a huge improvement!! Right on!

We also moved Artist News further up on the front page. My goal is to get it where the P-Bot picks are if we can manage to move daily winners into the content space on the right.

The content space on the right? Does that just mean the big main section where all the front paged items are?

Josh from the Behemoth made that awesome LEGO Tank submission on the LEGO Cuusoo website. He's having even MORE success now with his EVE Online Rifter frigate - check it out and show some support!

Damn, I really would love to have a LEGO tank like that chilling at my workspace.

The surprise is still coming and Pico Day is on April 28th!

You tease!! I love the little dancing gif. Really smooth! Who made that?

Last of all, here were my picks for top of the month. I realized this is the first time in close to a year I've felt like I had actually seen enough of the items in the voting pool to make a relatively informed decision. I only vote if I think I've seen a good chunk of what's available.

Best of February 2012

Yeah, I want all news / promos in the left column and all content on the right. I want to add more context to what you are seeing though... And still questioning whether this is even the best format. It gets the most content in the least vertical space but who knows, maybe a long list is what people would like best. Currently I picture daily winners as a single row in each section, so one row with the daily top 4 movies and one row with the daily top 4 games.

You tease!! I love the little dancing gif. Really smooth! Who made that?

Paul Robertson (Scott Pilgrim game) made them for the 2007 redesign, for an update to NG Mag that never materialized.

    Play Contrabobo today! The 8-bit hyper realistic graphics will melt your brain! Only for the Newgrounds home entertainment system! Newgrounds, now your playing with POWER! CONGRATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla aka"the Manly-est Gamer"!!!!! I have been wanting to draw Abobo ever since I seen the "Abobo's BIG Adventure" trailer, so I had a little contest... I would draw whomever was the first to PM me with all medals achieved in Abobo's BIG adventure (I called it "Abobo's BIG contest"). I anounched the prize would be a drawling of the winner beating Abobo's ass, but I was really just going to draw a caricature of the winner getting his ass beat by Abobo in the PunchOut ring (I thought it would be funny), however, when I asked him what his favorite stage was he answered "Contrabobo". A huge Contra fan myself, the Contrabobo was the stage I was most excited about, and at the last second I decided I would paint a variant mock of the NeS cartridge box (Ahhhh... nostalgia) and things just seemed to fall into place. Truly; DeathInk CONGRATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!CONGR ATULATIONS to TheRainbowZilla!!!!!
