Too many news posts. I think you should start having the front page show the three most recent news posts again.
Nonetheless though, awesome updates.
I need a sig.

Tell that to the artists who're missing out on feedback from fans of theirs who don't know they've submitted new work. Have a look at how many people in this thread were seemingly unaware that they could find that out through the star at the top of the pages for an example of just how many people didn't seem to know that they could already find that info out prior to it being "waved in their face".
thats good, now i can just pop in and see my fav artist without swimmg threw the river of newgrounds... I like the cut of your jim.
Tapping the fingers for art and laughs.
I like the new feature, but I'm wondering if we can have a little "x" or something to remove an entry once we've seen it, then maybe some cool ajaxy thing could fill in the deleted item with a new one from the overflow.
I had a bunch of art that I looked at , but now it's stuck there and I don't want to see it anymore.
Quite nice! Keep these new features coming, Tom and staff. I've been wanting a "view all" type thing for notifications since day one of the redesign! Also, take down the Pico Day wallpaper, it's May 12th.
sweet now the front page is more relevant to what I actually enjoy and will thus increase the amount of times i come here
great job ng team
Oh yeah, TOM eventually youll have to get rid of the news posting section that's directly left to the "latest from your favorites section". it's taking up valuable real estate that can be used for a more beautiful content driven layout
I know it'll hurt but, I'm going to take a stab that the majority of casual users who come to this site come for the content and not the latest NG news.
You can always replace it with a notification center that hangs in the navigator or in the "community section". If else, you could always just place a link in the footer that takes you to the NG NEWS forum section
I'd prefer featured content to be above latest from favorites, its very quickly turning into a facebook news feed which I dislike

Are you missing the part about you being able to decide for yourself where you want content on the front page to appear? I think so.

I love it. Like more than a friend.
It makes it easier to stalk all my favorites and scope out their new material.
28 points for whomever made that call.
This is great Tom.
It's super important that you guys try and do whatever you can to cement "relationships" on NG. I think you should even auto-add some favorites for new users if theres videos that they've watched more than once, or some other criteria. Youtube does this with it's "recommended for you" algorithm. It's really important because it helps you retain users, and helps drive the community spirit of the website.
I like it, but it'd be nice to click a "See more..." button to see older updates (like FB notifications).
I like it.... a little bit. I dunno, the front page has just become kind of crowded for me, now. All I see are thumbnails thumbnails thumbnails.
Also, can we all agree that this will devalue of being frontpaged?
What I really like about that favorites box is that you see exactly what the new stuff it is. When you click the star button, you only know what kind of update it is. That's especially handy when you loose track of what you clicked already and whatnot when there are several updates from one artist.
I also moved it down a little on the frontpage and I don't see why so many people are complaining. If you don't like it, move it to the bottom.
Umm. Just 2 questions Tom: 1: how come we can't see the news posts in the latest from the favorites, and 2: how come only 4? Why 4!?

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!
If you don't like seeing this at the top of the page, you can slide it down and NG will save your settings!
Yay, now I can keep up with my favorite artists!

The majority of visitors to NG aren't registered, so they will never see the favorites box and will instead see the featured content.
This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Mine has been updating - you probably need to favorite more people. Let me know if you see new submissions in your star list and not on the front page, though.

It updates automatically for me, I have favorited a bunch of artists, so I see updates every few hours. Nice that it has found place as box on the frontpage so that people who were not aware of the notification system can now see new stuff from their favorite users, but the first thing I did was moving it down to the bottom, since I click the Notifications star more often then I visit the frontpage. I also prefer when the frontpage looks the same when I am logged in and logged out.
Without truth, there is no justice.
