Noticed a minor bug:

Double of "Super Slumber Party", probably because it was submitted twice. However, one was likely deleted, as an error appears on clicking it: ERROR âEU" No submission ever existed with ID 595295.

The one that works has ID: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/595296

I'm guessing like you mentioned that "once in the feed, it'll stay there..." is true for artists deleting their submissions as well, unless there's something amiss here.

As much as I like this new addition, I'm not a fan of it being on the front page. I would rather have it on my user page (where I normally log in) and keep the front page space for showcasing the new/unknown-to-me-yet stuff! ...I agree with EJR that a number next to the star icon would be helpful (the way it is for PM's).

I noticed the Wall Art is the same across the site now. Is it going to stay this way or do you plan on going back to the color coordinated version? ...and will you be having contests for replacement art or just continue to ask people individually? Inquiring minds want to know! ;)

Mine is all audio right now too... Will have to consider some customization on that end.

Yeah - the feed is a static list that new items are added to. We'll need to add feed clean-up when stuff is removed.

I personally use the star constantly, I think it's a great feature. Latest from my favorites goes to the bottom of the front page, then!


Are you MAN enough to click this?!

Why, yes, I do. As an artist who's just beginning to gain some popularity, this will mean more views, and therefore more awareness.

I have been using the "star" a lot since I knew what it was but this is also really cool, now I have no excuse to ignore my favorites. :D

I was using the drop down list from the top of the page but I can confirm that the favorites tab is much better so far. I was hoping a real favorites list would return because the drop down list doesn't show as much as I would like.

I think you should focus on the features that are missing before adding redundant features. People not realizing they can click the star hardly seems like a legitimate reason to enlarge the feature and wave it in their face. If they want the feature, they'll find it. If not, then it doesn't matter that they don't know it's there.


I got Flash CS4 in case you need something converted to CS3.

Having a number next to the icon would be great, but I feel the news is personal to me, any people visiting my page shouldn't have to see it (i don't need people knowing that I favorighted shadman :P). I think it should be on the front page, but maybe just not the top of the page... if only there was a way I could move it down...

I noticed the Wall Art is the same across the site now. Is it going to stay this way or do you plan on going back to the color coordinated version?

I thought maybe NG did this because it was a special occasion

on another note the Front page is starting to feel much more personal, I do love NG showing me what is great and where to find it, let face it they know what to look for,heck, it keeps us unified... I don't know where I was going with this, but thanks for a little more control...

Perhaps we could see different colors for different submission types. Other than that, pretty nifty feature!

For quite some time I've been saying newgrounds should some type of subscription feature, as in to be able to see what your favorite artist have sent in or so. It's nice to see that feature come to life.

Thanks guys, this site keeps getting more awesome everyday.

Please read the news about Alien Hominid and the Epic Battle Fantasy Collab!

Also check out the Animation Tournament open round entries.

And please support the NG: The Forsaken City Kickstarter if you can.

OK ON TO THE LATEST NEWS!

Earlier this week we introduced the ability to re-arrange the front page feature boxes.

Today we've added a new box: the latest submissions by artists you've favorited!

This information has previously been available by clicking the star icon in the header but no one knows you can do that so we're making it more in-your-face. We decided to start with just four items because we didn't want to push the page down TOO MUCH. Later we'll be adding a "View All" link.

If you don't like seeing this at the top of the page, you can slide it down and NG will save your settings!

Like it?

I've been meaning to say how much I like the little star next to the sign out button that has a list of latest submits from your favorite authors. This feature box on the frontpage for it seems kind of redundant to me, but I guess that's what the customization feature is for! (: thanks liljim!

This is awesome. When you guys add a View All button you should totally add a little View All link when you click on the star icon at the top too, by the way.
