How about deleting any submission that gets down to a score of 1.00 or less? If the blam score while Under Judgement is 1.50, then why is it fair to have such low scoring items on here just cuz they managed to pass judgement before they tanked? It would also improve the quality of the material on this site. I really concerns me to see what has passed and what's is floating around this site. Examples? :D Hell yeah:
Well, you do have to consider games that were okay-ish (around 2 or more) and then over the course of time before the redesign, they were downvoted such that they had a score below 1.00. What about that? How do you "judge" it in that case?

Easy. Good games don't get down voted. If something is being down voted, then the game is either offensive in some way, or it's not good enough to be voted up. After all, if people vote high because a submission deserves it, then no amount of down voting is going to affect it, right? And remember, we're talking about a score of 1.00, not 3.50. GOOD things DON'T get to a score of 1.00, right? Just cuz something works does not mean it's entertaining, good, or guaranteed to be on the site forever.

You don't see it there? It's currently first on the page! Maybe you're looking at the regular Stencyl page?
I don't see it anywhere on this page - maybe my Internet is just broken.

I should say that it's working fine for me now, I can see it there. Must have just been lagging or something.

Ever since right before and even after the site went down, loading pages on NG has been taking notably more time. It's really weird.

Newgrounds goes down for a while, comes back on not looking completely different in every way no matter how pointless the change. I am disappointed.

Agreed. Tom, we love the site and like to have things running correctly, but Newgrounds is supposed to be a fun place, and that's not just us, but YOU as well. No over-stressin', bud. Have fun and enjoy your creation with us. You're our friend, not our slave. (Except for "Leather Time" on Friday nights, but that's our secret, k?)

My Bad. But that link still says IE8 for XP and IE9 for Vista and higher, though. I've got XP.

I know you have, we've discussed this before. All the more reason to install a standalone browser that's not tied to an OS, so you're current.

Is there any chance we're going to get that page back where we can see if any of our submissions have new reviews? Because there doesn't seem to be a way to see that currently, except for looking through your own submissions and checking manually.


I'm not very good at drawing, yet I like animating. It's not particularly helpful.

Yeah I'm on the voting panel every month too - but I'm not very active anymore.. but I run the newgrounds audio contests (NACs) so maybe it has to do with WHAT you contribute to the site? Just throwing that out there.

Also having audio portal songs get deleted if they're under a score of 1 or 2 and say.. have been on the site for a year or more imo would probably clear out a good chunk of submissions...

1) Still aware of the Treasure Hunt.
2) Still aware of the Annual Awards. Can't afford to forge new trophies and it puts me in a funk. This will be resolved this year.

Glad to hear it Tom, take all the Tom you guys need sounds like it's all going great. The annual awards were the one things that I was really dissapointed in with this year not having them announced but sound's like everything is going swell!
