So I made some ads promoting the Supporter Upgrade... Most of them are really shitty though. Here is a link to the random rotation: http://www.newgrounds.com/ads/ad-support.html

If nothing better comes along, these ads will replace the store ads in the header. BUT YOU CAN FIX THAT.

Make a 212x90 .GIF ad and post it in this thread (if you want to that is). The best ones will be featured in the rotation!

You don't have to explain everything in your ad. Selling points include supporting Newgrounds, browsing Newgrounds without ads, and whatever else you think will make the right people interested.

There won't be a prize for every ad that gets selected but our FAVORITE THREE individual artists will each get $25 store credit, so you too can become a supporter, or buy something else.

The ads will go live as soon as we have a few good ones. The deadline for prize consideration is FRIDAY.

I think we're on the same wave-length.

lol I came here to make this thread once I saw the ads.

Here's an edit on the FOLLOW ME! icon I made a while ago. More coming soon!

Guys the Newgrounds font is named TeketuAL, and is available to download HERE!

Remember, Newgrounds' colours are yellow, orange, golden, and black n white. The colours for Games, Movies, Audio and other specific sections of Newgrounds are in the navigation bar. You can steal exact colours from the downloadable assets here.
The aim here is support Newgrounds on the strength and will of its' community, not to scare people. The whole army and brothers-in-arms aesthetic is a great jumping-off point for that.

Jus some tips!
