This is not a Newgrounds is dying post.

People who have a twitter and follow Newgrounds, do you re-tweet Newgrounds? People on Facebook who have liked Newgrounds, do you share the links? These are great ways to help bring more people to site and even to bring more content to the site. Do you tell your friends about Newgrounds? Everyone likes watching animations and playing games right?

Any ideas to help spread the gospel? Lets bring Newgrounds a golden age!

Does NG have an official Tumblr? That could help reach a new audience.

Oh shit, it really should. You get some wicked screencaps from films, some quotes whacked on them, people will reblog that shit 'til noon and be snorting up high quality links all day. Tumblr is full of PC users, remember that folks.

Does it really matter? I mean, since we're not dying and we're already a great site (Yes, we are, rebels; if you don't like this place then don't come here) I don't know how we'd benefit from new users.

Erm. Hey, you know what? Nevermind about that. Yeah.

Don't tell them about the forums then haha :P

Of course new users would be beneficial. While it may attract some crappy users, it will also bring along some great new ones. There are thousands of artists out there who might not know about Newgrounds. If they bring their art to Newgrounds it will make it an even better place.

What if Tom deleted the Forums? I think that would make it all better.

I always see interesting things on my way to the forums. I might just stop all together if he got rid of the forums...

The forums do bring in quite a lot of people. For some people, the forums are the entire reason that they come to Newgrounds. I think that if we want NG to be successful, we should spread the word everywhere. Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Tumblr, Reddit, StumbleUpon, etc.

You'd be surprised at how many individuals stop to talk to me while I'm wearing my NG shirt's in public. They've been a conversation starter more times than I can count on my fingers and toes!

Newgrounds doesn't cater to a huge demographic of people. Lets be honest here this a nerd site.

Nah.

If people are threatening to beat you up due to dress you should probably move. That sounds like a pretty shitty way to live yo.

I advertised on a Littlebigplanet fansite ( (CLICK HERE)

I'm trying to edit the page so maybe the LBP population can get into NG more. Any ideas?

best idea - don't try to gain traffic through a terrible game's message board

I know it's a bad idea, but i'm tying to spread word in small places as well. Not only that, lbp is another creative community, so I thought it might work.

Well, first of all, get rid of all the whiners who think NG is crap, because it ain't, it's just under uncomplete reconstruction.

Maybe, some more sections to the site, I heard people want a literature section or something like that.

Or maybe more rules, like, "where to post". I suggest a special forum section for, different internet cultures. There are many people posting some information that might result uncomfortable for others, especially with this "brony" stuff going around, so why not make a forum for them, that way we don't have to start a flame war.

Also, more mods, that way we can detect trolls and spammers, for an immediate ban.

Well that's my point of view.

Honestly, the site needs to start promoting talent and interest in the fine arts. People look at flash, and they look at music and they look at art and all they see are just those: Flash, Music and Art, a dump site for those with little talent to get meager feed back on their shitty computer made creations. And it's oh so much more than that, so much more it's heart breaking to even hear people think of it that way. I'm not saying "only show the good stuff" I'm saying: show case the works that were given clear and present effort regardless of quality. Less spam flashes, less pornographic shit, I don't care if that's how this site started, it shouldn't be where it's going.

Those who make spam, don't try, I've seen and reviewed enough to know that they don't care for this site at all, it's not funny, and it's not cool, they give no effort, they don't give a damn and should be rightfully treated the same way, is that the truth for all? No, spam groups like Clock group and Lock group and others, actually can produce some pretty damn good flash, but it doesn't exactly culture brilliance or advancement as far I have ever seen. They have their top animators and then they have those with no desire to animate except to fill the portal with garbage. Furthermore, porn is OK but it shouldn't be showcased, we want the traffic we get to think we at least respect the site to leave that for those who search for it. Sure some are pretty well made, that's no doubt, but it's just not something you really want to be on the front page when they're are so many other, thoughtfully made and produced flashes that get passed up for tits.

All in all, participation is as important as anything, we eventually would like all "lurkers" to become contributors at some point. I don't have flash, and I can't draw to save my life, but I am a reviewer because I am a writer and I do know how and what makes a flash movie worth watching, I can provide assistance basic assistance on frame rate, lip synch, audio quality, art style, material used, character design, and plot, etc. I contribute in the best way I can, and I hope that at some point, someone else can carry the torch. But if we want those quality kind of users, we need to cultivate a quality environment.

but it's just my opinion so hey.
