Haven't seen a thread about this so i thought i'd share.

What are your thoughts on this notice?

Seems a decent enough idea to me, people are constantly saying "subscribe to my YT channel" on non-youtube sites and perhaps this can help expand NGs web presence. Then again do you think if you shared this link outside of NG to a non-newgrounder they would bother signing up just to follow you?

Perhaps it's more af an intra-site thing.

Discuss.

It's ugly because the URL should be yellow, and this is an issue because I like to look at my own page a lot because ego.

It won't let me follow myself. How the hell am I going to come to a realization that I'm completely fucking boring?

I don't like having owner-specific junk show up on my page either (I like seeing what the public sees) but we wanted to give this the old college try and make sure people were aware of it. Also it's pink like the heart you click the follow people. :P

Only time will tell if this helps... So many sites have cannibalized NG with follow links, maybe we can win a few people in our direction for once. Plus we want people to be more aware of the follow feature because it's really great, I enjoy the stuff in my personal feed every day and like to follow some of the more obscure game developers who never show up in the daily awards.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I agree. I think the follow is the coolest new feature here.

I don't think I'll promote my own page since I put out almost no content, but I find it handy to follow people.

What's cool is now animators can promote this in their flashes.

At least that's what I plan on doing :c

You're just mad that he can blank post and you can't.

Also I refuse to reply to such an ugly photo above. You call Joel McHales forehead big, but its nothing on Jakes nose. Its like a fucking marquee on his face.

Gagsy! Gagsy! Gagsy! Follow me! It would make me eternally grateful until the end of time, I would lift mountains and cleave valleys through the land! I would, oh wait you already are, that's a relief as it would have taken some effort.

I think it's a pretty attention whore-esque thing to do. I mean come on if someone likes you they'lldo itanyways.

Mother of God it took a long time to do that.

I think mine might be bugged.

For some reason when you click "Yes" it doesn't work.
