Alright I'm trying to donate and it's asking for a security code. I click the question mark and it don't tell me anything. What the fuck am I missing here?


It's time to get pissed off.

Yeah the security code explanation somehow didn't make it into the Wiki... Plus we need to open that in a new tab. We should just link to this for the explanation:

How ironic that Newgrounds is actually one of the sites where I enjoy looking at the advertisements. They are well integrated into the design and are often very relevant to the content.

Negrounds is definitely on my list of sites to donate to when (or if) I finally get my life together.

Been using the site for over 10 years so I definitely owe Newgrounds something (not sure if my parents would have approved when I started).

Hey clever Newgrounds developers I need your help.

So ever since I became I supporter I've been unable to view forums (see this screenshot, or the attached thumbnail). The threads all load up, and then just disappear (as if a JavaScript function were removing them after the page loads, though that's not it because it happens even with JavaScript disabled).
It doesn't happen when I'm not logged in.

What's the dealio?

You were banned because you have bad credit. Should have gone with BarNone!

So how did you post this from your account if you can't view the forums?

Well, he does have Firebug on there. It looks like he deleted two div tags and everything in them.

I can do the same here.

Probably not, wouldn't know. just giving a secondary option in case he was. Wasn't disowning him, he's probably telling the truth, but you know, It's Newgrounds.

Nah wouldn't be that; I literally only use Firebug for JavaScript development (since Firefox has no good built-in way to debug JavaScript).
But you had the right idea: it was my "Remove it Permanently" plugin. Back during the Clockcrew day I used it to disable the background wallpaper (I didn't like it) and apparently that combined with me becoming a supporter was the perfect storm.

Well at least that was pretty simple to sort out. :)

I propose an Idea to Tom Fulp!

Another way to get user support, with all the artwork submitted to NG, would it be possible for those that get front-paged or receive a certain amount of popularity to offer print sales of their works through NG, with NG getting a cut of the purchase?

Is this real?

Money can only provide so much. It seems that NewGrounds has indeed been a struggling since since the web boom of the 1990s but, think about it, so many of other websites have managed to monetize their website. Right? I mean Twitter, YouTube, and god damnit I have to mention it, Facebook. They've all managed to turn their websites into successful businesses. Obviously Newgrounds has great potential but, what element is it missing? It's clear that Newgrounds has very talented artists, musicians, animators, programmers, and writers; that statement goes without a question.

I feel that you need to focus on transitioning Newgrounds from desktop experience to handheld experience. Newgrounds has a FUCK TON of great content...but, just make it accessible wherever we go.

Newgrounds could be much more relevant to the new generation of people who are discovering the internet through their phone. Cross-device compatibility is essential now-a-days. A new responsive layout could be useful.

tl;dr you made the nes now make it portable

There is a lot we hope to accomplish. Newgrounds was never intended to be a secondary dump on the information superhighway - it is a catalyst for creativity, a place where you meet the people you will create with for life.

We will accomplish great things with your support.

God i couldnt agree more. I dont know where i would be today if it wasnt for this site!!!

<3 NG. Ill gladly donate.

Well I would support Newgrounds, but I can't seem to pay for this... perhaps my store credit is in the way? I would spend that, but I can't get any T-Shirts that I want.

Seriously, is there any other way I can work this out?
