How about Indie Day?
A whole day dedicated to new ideas and concepts that have never been done before.

I'm all for a clean slate with NG Events and holidays. Although I do think there should be physical meet-ups. They really have encouraged some amazing collaboration in the past. Also I really enjoyed the Tank Award ceremonies. They weren't really themed towards anything so I feel they could be a recurring day that wouldn't really get old.

Ha ha, don't worry, I'm just being silly. There is some good art buried somewhere under all the erotica!

I like the idea of submissions based on being experimental ! +1

Pico Day, Clock Day... I mean traditions keep us together, like some sort of fraternity -- we're "close-knit" in that sense. Everyone over here identifies with them in some way, shape or form, and to varying extents. If we take these away, there's not much to know and love anymore, is there?

I agree with this 100%. I would definitely miss Pico Day if it was gone.

On a side note though, it would be neat to have a Jam sort of thing, for ALL types of content (games movies audio art writing) where everyone makes stuff around one theme in a weekend.

Actually, if you had clicked some of the boobs that day you would have seen it was the Friday Flood and it was all grotesque creatures posing as boobs in their icons... So that was pretty damn awesome.

Wow, thanks to the Judges and the Public voters - and a bit of luck! We didn't expect to finish in the top 4. We thought the Swan KingS humour and story was even more 'too-Britishy' than Jack-O'Lampoons and so feared it would alienate non-Brits, but it turns out, the voters seemed to mostly appreciate it!

This has given us a good boost of motivation to do more episodes in the New Year!
We are looking for an male american 'TV commercials' -style voice artist and a woman voice artist who can sing as well as narrate too, so PM me if interested!

Happy New Year everyone!

That actually sounds fucking cool. Your best hope is to start some new wave for us all to get behind, because I feel your posts get more anxious every time, so we need something to be pushing forward, not trying to prop up! I'll make something for New Day whether it happens or not.

Or we can call it Otto Day because its real purpose is my birthday.

New Day sounds like the best idea ever!
I've never been a big fan of Pico Day, to be honest, but I sure as hell love experimental stuff.
This is just the kind of change NG needs to stay fresh.

Pico Day has really evolved over the years. It used to be dedicated to the original Pico cast, then expanded to include al the core NG characters (and staff for that matter). The next logical step is to make it evolve further into a day for fans to submit parodies and tributes of their favorite NG characters and users.

I would much rather see holidays dedicated to outdated characters and groups go to pasture. You just can't justify dropping/replacing Pico day and keeping shit like Clock day that caters to memes that have long passed their twilight, or even madness day which says we care about that one franchise more than all the other great ones that have no day.

Keep Pico Day and make it more open and we'll still get all the great madness movies and games, and the clock crew will always have a presence as well.

Then you can come up with new theme days to fill the months with lame holidays. Stuff that's themed but not restricting, like the much under-promoted Robot Day.

As for the big party at the office, why not replace that with a 5 hour chat party instead where the users can all hang out regardless of their location and financial situation and watch pico day submissions together. Then you don't lose all that work time planning a big event or have to get distracted by a ton of people being on-site.

I think PsychoGoldfish's post are really convincing and I agree. The chat party sounds like both a good compromise and a lot of fun.

I don't agree with the Clock Day thing though. I love Clock Day.

And as I said, the name would be Pico Day, but you could give out a theme or direction that you are looking for. As long as you promote it well enough it should work out.

I like what PsychoGoldfish was saying about holidays being themed, but not restricted.
It was cool how you opened Pico day to all classic NG creations last year, it made it feel more like Newgrounds day.
As for not having the event at the office, I have mixed feelings.
It sounds waaay too stressful. From organizing to hosting (did I mention I hate meeting people).
But on the other hand it seems like the coolest event ever! The greatest talents flying in from all over the world. Man that's EPIC .

You should make a contest then, everyone will work a lot more. Instead of a contest day, make it a week.
