I would like to think that I've helped Newgrounds over the years by moderating the site, performing various community based projects and whatnot. But in reality, I haven't helped Newgrounds. I've been cleaning what I consider to be my "home" on the Internet. A place where I meet and talk to friends whom many share my interest(s). Goof around, have a fun time watching movies on a short break, listening to unheard music (hipster goes FAPFAPFAP) and sometimes playing a fun webgame.
Where could I othervice do this for free?
No, I've never helped Newgrounds, I've been part of a fun community based on a site where you can do all these things for free. Things that other members of the community created. I've never helped Newgrounds, I've helped maintaining my and many others home on the web. And I'm damn proud of having been part of this community.
In a specific way (that I won't mention in detail WINK WINK, TOM;) Newgrounds and Tom have helped me in getting my current dreamjob, working with sound for the games studio Dice. Even if I'm not rich, and even if I because of the same job don't have much time to spend on Newgrounds nowadays, I still visit "home" at least 3-4 times/week - and you bet your ass I think that the least I can do is to show my support!
Newgrounds is an honest site who is honest about its current situation. It is, like Tom mentions, a site not dependent on any large "evil soul-less corporation". I dearly hope that this fact and honesty will surge through the Internet and that NG will grow, because You and I who are members of this community deserves it. Yeah yeah yeah, also Tom and the staff deserves this for creating and maintining the place, I guess... ;)
Lots of <3 to Newgrounds, from me to everyone!
