NG needs our help guys!!! I've visited Newgrounds regularly for the past 4 years and I'd hate to see this not get any support. Help out by shelling out some cash and get a cool banner on your userpage and under your posts plus no ads.

---------

"One thing we've learned over the lifetime of NG is that it's really hard to offer the range of content NG hosts while also pleasing the advertisers necessary to pay the bills. Over the course of more than a decade we've managed to be kicked off just about every ad network on the Internet. We don't get paid much for most of the ads you see on the site. It is no longer enough to keep the site running.

For Newgrounds to survive, the people who use it and appreciate need to support it. We have created this store item to offer that opportunity.

For $25, you will be a Newgrounds Supporter for one year. You will get a badge on your user page and forum posts, letting people know you are keeping Newgrounds alive. As a thank you, we will disable all in-page ads such as the 728x90 banner and 300x250 side bar ads. We cannot currently disable the pre-roll ads that people put in front of their games and movies, but we will be examining the possibilities.

The main perk is that NG can continue to exist, grow and remain independent. There is a real risk of that not happening without the support of the community. If you choose to become a supporter, you have our sincere gratitude! Thank you for considering."

I remember there was something extremely similar suggested in that VC thread. It's definitely good to see that Tom's trying something new.

why do websites do this

like even sa makes you pay 5 or 10 bucks for something you can do for free

Because the income improves their cashflow and revenue.

Okay? It's optional. You don't HAVE to do it and you aren't losing anything by not doing it.

This is true. And this is why it's not an attractive proposition for users. For Newgrounds though, it offers them the chance to improve their income, without incurring any additional costs - ergo it's a very attractive proposition.

Not yet.

There should be an option to disable ads or not on this... because I don't mind the ads if it helps. Also, I wanted to do more than 1 'unit', they need to change that!

I agree there should be an option to enable the ads, but I don't think they would have done that if they would be losing money on it.

I wouldn't mind the ads still though.

A commie that helped plan 9/11!

I think this is a great idea. Next time I have $25 to my name I'm doing it. Though, if you're listening Tom, you should consider allowing people to kick in more than $25 if they want. Maybe you could start a 501(c) for saving NG. It could be called "Save the NGers."

This is a better alternative to premium accounts, but I'm going through some tough times myself. I have to think long and hard about this. The ads haven't been bothersome to me for many years, and I've never blocked them.

Actually, if NG can pull in more money, they can in turn spend more on sponsoring new games and making new games. So it's really a win-win to support NG.

Wait.
Newgrounds is dying?

Because they have to resort to a donation like system to stay "free and independent".

If Tom wants more exposure and financial support to Newgrounds, then he should jump on the bandwagon and head over to Kickstarter of indiegogo and offer incentives like t-shirts and exclusive NG memorabilia. Financial networking is the way of the future, people.

Oh, I don't care about it being there. I'd just rather it stick to the theme of the site because the red kind of clashes.
