Same, when I hit the order button on the confirm page it gives a server error.
Could be unrelated but my icon also doesn't show up in the top left on that same page.

You can go to the store and buy prepaid visa cards. I suggest that because I know for a fact they have a 25 dollar option in those cards.

3 questions
are they sold intentionally
do you need id
are there age limits

When i start making my own moeny this will be one of the first things I buy! I don't care about the lack of adverts, I don't care about the supporter icon! I want to help keep newgrounds alive! If I'm bound to be here forever by oath I will do all I can to make sure I can.

So if NG was less mainstream, all the animators would forgo YouTube money and post their stuff here first? And all the game developers would turn down the highest bidders and post their games on a site covered in porn ads and screamer spam, because it's punk as fuck?

Times change, the internet changes, peoples' expectations change. And regardless, NG never went mainstream.

Agreed on this one, it is something that's on my mind a lot as the site feels more homogenized. I always hope to bring more personality back into the features and layout once we've accomplished the larger foundational features but those features just keep piling on. I also need to bring more personality back into myself but this has all become pretty serious, considering how high the stakes have gotten nowadays.

All right--it's clear that the whole store is broken...I'm sure Tom is reading this. I just tried to buy the supporter upgrade again for the 7th time and yep...got the white page again after hitting the "Order!" button.

Did you get a blank white page after hitting the order button? If so, your order didn't even go through. Like I said in my last post and I think the posts before mine make this clear too, it looks like the entire NG Store is broken and has been since yesterday.

Unless thats just an error, because I thought I had purchased it on the day this thread went up.

That's a bit different then. Oh well. In any case, I hope the store problems get solved soon. NG needs our money now probably more than any other time I can remember.

No thanks, the way I see it is that by submitting content to NG, NG's has been profiting from my work, plus all the years I've had to view all the ads on NG, I think NG's has made enough money from me over the years.

Better sales pitch ideas:
1) See Tom dance naked in the street for $25
2) Offer a book, like 'The history of Newgrounds' or something for $40
3) Newgrounds themed comforters and pillows for $70
4) Offer the first born child of any Wade Fulp for $2 Million.

Changing the color of the star? You could have looked in the user icon makers, I posted a psd with the red star in the club.

You haven't submitted anything since 2003 and what you have was minimal. I'm not exactly sure that made them much of anything.

We tried that already but the going rate isn't that much and you can't move more than one or two a month.
