Madness Day is just 8 days away! Prize info and details have been announced on the Madness Day 2012 page. There are prizes for movies, games, music and art so check it out and GO GO GO if you haven't started!

There have been some big changes in the Audio Portal this week. Since its inception in 2003, the Audio Portal has depended on a handful of moderators to vet every incoming artist. They've done an amazing job for nearly a decade now but it was a huge burden for everyone. As of this week, the Audio Portal has adopted the Art Portal scouting system. If you haven't been scouted, your audio will still be available on your user page and registered users have browsing options for artists who haven't been scouted. Scouted musicians have the ability to scout other musicians, while any registered user can recommend someone for scouting, which puts them on the radar on a special listing used by scouted artists.

This dramatically increases the pool of people who can vet newcomers and it will HOPEFULLY WORK BETTER.

Want to work with an up-and-coming unknown voice actor? Just sort the Voice Acting category to show "Un-scouted Artists" instead of "Approved Artists." Or better yet, if you're an approved musician or voice actor, use that listing to give other guys a hand up.

Nutcasenightmare (of The Game and Gap Monsters fame) has set up a Kickstarter for an impressive new game site: CHECK THIS OUT NOW.

Round 4 of the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animators has come to a close. Coughing-Dog submitted an entry but it wasn't finished so it's not in the Portal yet. The final match-up will be announced next week!

Halloween is next month so get started on those SPOOKY Halloween submissions! We'll have contests around all that too.

Do you guys want to have an Animation Jam the weekend of September 28th?

I started 2012 with that ambitious schedule of alternating game and animation jams... Then totally failed. Want to get back on track.

Yeah, we'll do the pumpkins!

And man... We usually do the Treasure Hunt in October. I still never got through last year. The good news is we started making date cut-offs so this year would start where last year ended... Meaning we should still do it and I should get some people to help me parse through the shit-ton of suggestions.

All previous audio artists are scouted by default.

This is a shameless self-promotion, but I've got an art contest going on in the Art Forum, guys, complete with prizes! We haven't had any submissions as of this writing, so you could win big if you give it your all!!!

I feel I should go look around in the audio portal and scout someone now....
Is the scouting system the same as the one for art? Or are there slight differences?

Scouting itself is about the same, there are some slight differences in browsing tools.

Shit tons of activity going on this month. still asking around for other artists wanting to hop on for the NGAP idea, but only few have submissions for characters to model and damn...i forgot to make a thread about it; I'd better do that.

Good luck to everyone this month on their projects!

Since the audio portal is being reformed... has the time finally come to fix the name of the "classical rock" genre (to "classic rock") and the "accordian" typo in the credits options (to "accordion")?

That would be awesome! Would there be a specific topic or will animators just work to create whatever they can during the weekend?

But yes, Craftyy is something like a Wikipedia-for-games.
As in, anyone can add onto anyone else's games and ideas.

Maybe some awesome bigger-than-any-one-person-could-make games will come out of it
Or maybe a bunch of weird exquisite corpses.

In either case, I hope you'll find it as exciting as... uh... something exciting!
