Personally, I think the organization of this thing needs more help.

For example, I just discovered that there's a channel specifically for Under Judgement things.

Can't we fit the Latest, Greatest, and Popular somewhere else? The classic portal was actually one of the most streamlined things, now everything is so terribly cut up.

It's overwhelming, quite frankly.


Good.

Didn't even notice the difference, lol. But that's probably because I'm not using, and don't have, an iPhone or related piece of technological bullshit.

Why just not push the newgrounds logo up a few pixles and put the old slogan right under it? that would work wouldnt it

I don't know a lot about web design and layouts, but to me it looks VERY small. Too small for my taste. The wall art gets kinda lost and ... I liked the other logo a bit more overall.

The logo itself looks nice though. Can't wait for the mobile theme!

I agree.. Maybe if there were some white lines dividing the tankman from his tank as well? Just something about the right side that looks off to me.

There was some thread a few days ago that had a link to all the versions of newgrounds in web archive. I was looking around and thinking how nice and compact old ng designs looked. All the information you needed for pages like the flash and audio portal were displayed in one screen, no scrolling. This redesign is visually more appealing and accessible, but every page feels like you need to scroll forever to get the content you want. It's not a huge issue, but I think a compact header is step in the right direction.

TL:DR I like it

I would love that more.

I went to NG a few times on my phone today, and it ran awesomely, everything looked great.

We could also go back to Chinagrounds. That got people's attention.

Maybe the tank needs to be animated... otherwise, smaller isn't better.
This still is an animation site, isn't it? Have teh tank roll across the (supposedly rotating) artwork!

I think it looks better like this personally. It takes qualities from the oldschool as well as the modernized logo and combines them into something totally slick and fresh.

I really like the new header, it looks more organized and classy. It would be cool that when you hover over the logo the "Everything by Everyone" motto appears somewhere, like an little animation.

Maybe for mobile.

I think you guys should definitely keep the overall 'streamlined' look with a few minor tweaks to the logo just to keep things uniform on 'desktop' and mobile based browsers. Only difference would be that traditional browsers get the cleaner header like it was yesterday, just with the new logo, and mobile users either don't get 'everything by everyone' or something like you proposed with this post.

The new logo has so much potential and I love it damn it. :(

You know what, I like that better. I preferred what we had yesterday, but I really like the pixel art new logo! If we could have the header the same size as yesterday but with the new logo, I'd end up loving that. I feel like the smaller header should be reserved for mobile where it makes more sense on a small screen. Things just seem a little squished like this right now. It should have room to breath since it's on a (for most people) decently sized monitor.

Gotta wait for the next redesign. Maybe we'll LIGHTBOX EM.

Or uhh... make them extensions of www.newgrounds.com rather than subdomains. Could make userscripts amazingly more functional. :P

Personally it made me feel more comfy here, and "everything by EVERYONE" is very attractive, that alone made me eager to do stuff.

Yeah totally, that's why everyone normally doesn't work together!

That looks a lot better than the current one.

I think my least favourite thing about the new logo is the way the tankman looks. His head is too big. I liked the old one better.

I like it, but to be honest i can't give much word as to how it holds up to the old header due to the fact i have the memory of a goldfish (the cracker). Anyone willing to upload a comparison of some sort?

My only concern would be it might cover up more of the wall art on special days, but most of the art is on the sides anyway so it's probably not a big deal.

Reminds me of how the header looked like in 2005. Kind of miniature and adjacent to small buttons. Except it's missing the slogan which IMO could fit snugly under "NEWGROUNDS".
