THIS IS AMAZING

Shame that my ideal frontpage arrangement is ... how it is currently

I moved some stuff around on the front page but it felt so wrong so I put it back. I felt like I was doing something I wasn't supposed to. I don't like change!

Awesome!

Although to be honest I usually go straight to the portal or the BBS rather than visiting the home page first so it doesn't make much of a difference for me.

Is it just me? I can't view any of the flash movies anymore ... the "under judgment disclaimer" works as well as the flash ads in the banner ... but I can't get an actual movie to load ... just started today ....

Same thing is happening to me! I thought it was my browser for a while. Glad I'm not alone.

I'm able to view flash content on other sites ... it's just the movies ... I get black nothingness...

Yeah, same here. I can see Youtube and other flash on other sites just fine, but no movies on Newgrounds are loading. The streaming ones come up like they're almost going to load something, but then nothing happens.

This was unexpected, but getting rid of the flash banner makes the front page less taxing on slower computers. However, I agree with Chumbawumba on having music and art votes count towards the daily five. In addition, I would like to see the "Other submissions by _____" box back in the movie, game, and audio submissions back.


I'm not impressed with the way things are going here.

Want games above movies? Sure thing!

Awesome! Now i can have the games be up front!

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.

Not so awesome. i really liked that, it showcased particular games and flashes that seemed to be getting good votes. it also showed going-ons around NG

Other changes include six calendar items instead of four and the P-Bot Picks now just lists the daily top five - you can click the comments link to view more details in the P-Bot post. This allowed the Artist News to come up a few hundred pixels, the goal being to ultimately have it right below the site news and events.

Thats nice

Awesome! BTW to fix the featurette box instead of having it a flash that moves why not just a bunch of stand still images like before?

Pretty awesome. Newgrounds continues to astound! I love that you guys are really pushing to grow with all of your new features. It's small touches of customization like this that I think will really keep people I love with the site! :D

Newgrounds is about the only site yet to not piss me off with constant useless features, but instead a few great ones. Good work!
