Without a friends list, how would you see which of your friends are online when multiplayer game support is added?

I was thinking more of just playing whoever was on, but I guess gaming friends would be a use for the feature.

Will newgrounds ever have notifications like Facebook does? It'd be nice to see that i have a new comment on a post or a flash easily.

I still say "friends" is a generic term. I support everything else.

Well, that and probably pushing the "friend request" icon to the right of the PM inbox.

Yes...

It's when you become a fan. Though, it doesn't show comments on newspost, just posting of newsposts.

Creator as well. There's also already multiplayer games out there as well.

You know this is sort of relevent (i know u guys will read this)

but I'm back in dorms again living with kids (i get paid for it), and i introduced them to newgrounds. Their mindset is currently only facebook and youtube exist.

I'm not sure how but maybe someone should start raising concerns about independent websites. Just throwing that out there, since there isn't much ammunition being fired.

It really is scary stuff... Most people don't have much appreciation for what came first if it happened before their time. I always thought Hydrox cookies were a cheap rip-off of OREOS but it turns out it was the opposite, OREO ripped off Hydrox and now everyone sees OREO as the standard. Although in our case, people don't even know NG exists so we can't even enjoy Hydrox status. I still have stupid optimism that this will change.

I think it was the Salad Fingers and Milkman videos I showed them first
Then faith fighter, Vtech Ramapage, Catoblepas and the Hansel and Gretel game.
They seemed to have more fun than if they were refreshing for fb messages.

Does refreshing still happen? I loved it when a page stayed dead, gave a sense of reassurance.

Got the first little integration done on the PM system today. When you go to the 'compose' page and start typing a recipient's username, it'll suggest names from your friend lists.

Really? I knew how to add Medals to my movie before the revamp, but now the option is gone under the API tools for adding medals to movies. If there is still a way, it would be nice to know how.

And yes, I know there are some multiplayer games already on NG, I was suggesting making it a regular feature under the API tools. I've asked a few programmers around NG how to make these things and so far none of them have helped.

I don't suppose you know how to do these things?

Hey, i have a question. Does anyone have a good idea of where to look in order to find decent animators that might be willing to work with me? I've found a few on youtube. One was in a state in where she was willing to accept projects but she was only accepting comedic shorts that were no more than a minute. One was busy, and a couple have yet to respond. It doesn't seem this forum does much either as most animators rarely visit here it seems. At least from what i see. I don't know, so many posts and so little contributions. If anyone knows of a whole community where a group of animators go and are willing as well as able to help please let me know. Thanks. :)

Another question. I hear from someone that it is better to start out with animations first then get voice actors later when it comes to working on projects. I want to know if that is just one man's opinion or if that is most people's recommendations on how to officially start with a project(aside from scripts, of course).

Whoah, i apologize. I thought this was the hangout topic where people talk about just about anything. I went to check out sutff people have talked about in the past and realized this was a feature. I apologize. The topic title threw me off. I will take this elsewhere, in the meantime, delete these two topics. Thanks :)

Oh wow, there's an 'Idle.' status indicator in the friends list. That makes everything so much more awesome.

Now allows us to see who favourited our submissions and I can live in peace.

For now, I'm only able to accept friend requests.

Sending the invite and getting the pending message is as far as things can go until the other person accepts the friend invite. Are those guys telling you they don't see the invite on their end?

Well, it sure as hell makes things a lot easier. Although it does also make the feature on the "compose a message" feature of listing friends from what you've typed in the "Send to" box kind of null and void.

I was wondering this.
How long do you have to be inactive til it says you're "Idle" instead of "Online"?

It would be cool if the "share" buttons were more relevant. A lot of webpages have people linking to their Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Dribble, and so on but I never see anything towards Newgrounds. I guess my point is the whole social aspect is making things simple to share across all platforms. Also shortlinks are pretty cool.

Actually here's an example of a website that mentions other media websites but no Newgrounds.
