Total ripoff of the NG portal? May. 12th, 2004 @ 09:45 PM

Is it just me or is this a blatant rip off of the newgrounds flash portal? It seems like they copied everything word for word

The portal is just a bunch of links on a cool background. It's kind of harsh to say rip off.

Copies everything word for word? In that case there would be more than 2 sections for the flashes, and the design would be different. It's not a rip off, it's just another flash portal.

Hey guys, how can you make a portal -not- like the NG one. All flash portals are very similar. If you think it is a rip off, tell me in what way.

Becuase NG has flash movies, and so does your site.

I made the Flipsided.com portal myself, no money. It may have similar features but how cant you? Portals are portals.

could have at least called it something different than a "flash portal"

its not a rip off, but the name lacks originality.

Now you had to go and hypnotise me with that picture. If you even so much as type the word "portal" on your site, you are ripping off NG.

Now make more sprite movies so I can review them and yell at all the idiots giving it 0's.

Yes, since you don't have to do any work. All you have to do is rip the sprites from the game and animate them, you worthless hack. So what if I'm level 1, signed up today, and have never even opened Flash on my computer? I still know everything.

ummm, i really don't see the rip-off. It's a quite cheap site, and to compare it to NG is rather rude ; )

I find that the Flipsided flash portal is nothing like the one at NG. Here, it is a lot more advanced, and they are both completely different looking.

Dude, just shut your fucking mouth. You speak out your ass.

Every site that has a flash portal is supposedly a rip off of Newgrounds.

STFU n00b you know nothing! Why do you have to flame me? I just asked a question but you have to give a stupid answer
