The whole point of the redesign was to try and inject some life back into the site, the Newgrounds staff know that the site isn't doing well and most of the old userbase knows this too and to tell you the truth it's not really a secret
the way sheeple use the web is rapidly shifting
the msn era is over
people no longer talk about what they did on the internet or irl with instant messaging
they make small talk with facebook about facebook
surfing is becoming less frequent because some sheeple exclusively use face book and youtube
other content portals are simply unable to compete with youtube
but they still have advantages over youtube
(The Supporter badges in the store and most of the site's big contributors moving onto sites like Youtube) and it failed.
Now there's not as much interesting content being uploaded to the portal and what's left of the userbase is nothing but adolescent My Little Pony fansL
that cancer is all over the internert
zoophiles have always been on the internet
This is what Tom gets for trying to run Newgrounds like a hobby all this time.
so you are saying he is an inadequate leader
maybe we should do a survey (CONTENT PRODUCERS ONLY)
and ask what modifications would make new grounds a more attractive place to upload their stuff
and what they are getting from other sites they are not
an additional survey(s) for viewers
old users why they stayed
new users why they came
and what everyone would want on the site
It's not right for the nature of the site, Some of the staff here have based their careers on Newgrounds
i think the userbase is the driving force
and now site like Armor Games and such are leaving Newgrounds behind in the dust.
they posted stuff on newgrounds using their preloader to draw attention to their websites
there has been a noticeable decrease in that happening
As a site, it might not be dead now, but right now it's going through chemo. Whether it lives or not, only time will tell.
we need good users to stay
but we need more people to become good users
everyone can make a portal submission
we need a swarm of newbies to make their first flash and we can see if we see any potential
if we attract more new users
i suggest we have a section of the front page full of the best animation and game making tutorials
GAMES, Movies, Audio, art, channels,community, shop ng
& put classic portal while your at it
Not sure why I typed this up, either nobody will read it or it'll just get dismissed as garbage.
i don't think its garbage
