I suck at making ads (I assume I am, I have yet to make one before) but I might give it a go if I feel less lazy. When is the deadline?

I can't post a bunch at once, so I put a nice bright background for easy cropping :)

More likely, NG would just have a smaller and smaller team, I would sink into an even worse depression and the site would just be a big downer to visit. Or to avoid that the site would be sold or opened to investors, at which point the outcome could be even worse. But really it would be hard for NG to completely DIE unless someone sued us out of existence over something.

I apologize if mine were too far. They were made in more a joking manner than actually meaning that Newgrounds is going to die without supporters.

I think I'll make some more tonight though.

I wasn't offended or anything, I just want to dial back the dread-factor.

Now I wonder if that is kinda awkward if someone actually wants to support the troops and it turns out we're just asking them to give us money instead. HMMMM DECISIONS.

I think this is actually one of the smartest ones. I'm not sure using the NG colors within the ad is a great idea, because it's going to mesh with the site and I feel like users could glaze right over it.
