Looks like that's a GM script I can trash. Nice feature NG team. :)

Everything is still rated by numbers, just displayed in 5 star score. If you hover your cursor over the stars a movie or game has it will display the number rating.

I know but I would like that number score to show when u hover over a movie in the classic portal as well, and to be displayed without hover on front page.

Simply click and drag the "drag" icon on the top right of each box and NG will remember where you left them. Want music to be the first thing you see every day? Now it can be! Want games above movies? Sure thing!

This has got to be the most awesome update ever! I didn't even realize how much I would use something like this until it became available! Well done sir :D

Now if voting on art counted towards the five needed to deposit grounds gold, that'd be mighty swell.

Awesome work James,

I love this feature, if the flashbox does return just make it optional to close.

Im moving audio right up with movies now!!

Great feature! I do admit, that I felt awkward fondling the front page, its like touching a chicks breast for the first time, you totally want to do it, but you keep thinking your going to get in trouble. OK I admit it... I have never touched a female breast before.

If you look at the layout from 99 and then the layout from today it almost makes you fall back in your seat. It's really exciting how much work and effort are going into the Newgrounds website. Thanks so much!

I hear that, I remember when I joined years ago it was completely different. I respect Tom and co a lot they really have made huge headway in so many ways being one of the first to ever get a flash game published on consoles and making this huge community where many aspiring authors have gone on to make great names for themselves.

Good shit. Itd be cool if down the road, one of the boxes was a 'people you follow' box where its showing the latest things from people youre a fan of. Might encourage more people to favorite others or theyd have a really stale box. Might encourage people with fans also to continue to pump stuff out considering youd have a slot for them on the front page. Though that could get tricky with Tom front paging things himself and with mixing games/movies. I guess I feel like favoriting people could go an extra mile. Maybe.

Whatever happened to the bytesize? Woulda loved more 10 sec clips from NG peeps.

Also, the featured banner was pretty cool IMO. If people didn't like it this way, it'd love to see a new form of it. But, I suppose it does kinda put a viewing priority on whatever stuff Tom and Co. like best...

oh man.... Whoever came up with the idea, go buy them lunch or something. This is highly convenient.

Also, thank you for getting rid of the "featured" content box.


Thank you Ryan for the AWESOME sig!

That's what the feed on the front page will be.

To be honest right now this is all I want. I have some finished projects I want to remove too.

It's on the list, sorry for the delay.

1) The Flash-based feature box is gone. It just didn't seem to be getting good results in its current form so maybe we'll revisit it with something different.

You could go back to the single "featured game" thing from pre redesign times.

2) If you are logged in, you can now re-arrange the showcase boxes for movies, games, art, audio and collections on the front page!

Cool. Never gonna use that though. Ever.

I also liked that feature box.
Maybe you can made the feature box showing customizable.
And I also don´t understand (yes I am pretty slow) why the TOTW price has gone.
But it´s still really awesome.

Dig the changes!

I do miss the weekly top rated having the bigger spot it used to though. I felt like I had to dig around to find where they where listed.

I really liked being able to see what the best new toons of the week are, and helps those toons get more publicity. Without it toons only chance to get seen are if they win a daily or get front paged.

Yeah, the flash box wasn't all that good, didn't really stand out for me, but this is an amazing idea Tom, great job can't wait to start organizing my new view of Newgrounds front page!
