You could also make another stickman gun game or escape game to bring more traffic to the site...

So you're admitting that you'd like to pay to be a spammer?

Wouldn't it just be simpler, to post and review within the rules and guidelines that have been set out for everyone's benefit, not just everyone else's.

Any plans to offer payment options other than credit cards?
I don't have one, and last time I did (when I was in college) I missed a bunch of payments and fucked my credit up, so I haven't gotten another one.

Suppose I could get one of those prepaid ones, but in my experience they get declined from online merchants a lot.

Oh you lovely Newgrounds. For many years you've been my sanctuary. I will do whatever I can to help! Newgrounds inspire, Newgrounds helps us develop our skills and express ourselves to an enthusiastic crowd.

Thank you Tom and the Newgrounds staff! Keep rocking. Hard.

Warm regards,
Dan

Sent him a PM. Hopefully I'll be able to donate to NG. Lord knows this site has given me thousands of hours of entertainment over the years.

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!

Fire a PM off to Tom. That's what I did and was able to send payment via PayPal.
Now I just need to wait for him to get the confirmation. :)

Loved this site even when it had malware running on it. Nastysex.exe from the Clockwork-Adam page, my parents really appreciated that on the family PC.

Will donate the $25 dollars around October time.
I don't care about blocking the ads though, unless they make noise.

I've been on the site since 2000, which blows my mind a bit. I've done some stuff over the years, but I inevitably felt kinda guilty about having never bought anything from the site (although I was contributing plenty of individual ad impressions).

I did a write up on my thoughts and have, subsequently, become a supporter. Here's to chasing the dream, Tom.

Thanks for the writeup! On the topic of multiplatform, it's a much bigger goal than it looks like. We are bringing a guy onboard who will be working on the video processing server (to make mobile versions, accept more file formats, etc.) and Mike has been developing software that does best-ever SWF to video conversions - a lot of the YouTube guys have already been using an old beta and movies like Starbarians put it to use here on NG.

We need mobile content before a mobile site has much use - mobile-sized video and html5 games are a big piece of that. We've made a lot of back-end overhauls to prepare for multi-platform versions of existing content and everything will be falling into place as 2012 comes to a close. If NG looks like it's trying to do much already, WE'LL SHOW YOU CRAZY.

Debit card? I use mine everywhere, no declines as of yet (but that's because I manage my money)

Sure, Tom. Whatever you say :P

I'll support when I can, but I had to get a router and a switch first. The router i'm using is throttling each thread to about 40-50K/sec
Next month, maybe?

I don't have a credit card, so I'll just make sure to click an interesting ad at least every three days.
