I bet when i say Newgrounds is a pretty awesome place about 80-100% of you would agree. But it could be better. much better. I have recently seen movies ans games one after another that are terrible pass judgment one by one. People need to start taking judgment seriously. Fail those who suck so in the future we don't have to dig so hard to get what is great. Make a difference and make New grounds a better and more fun of a place.

This subject has been brought up hundreds of times over the years. Most statwhores won't even watch movies or will watch only the first few seconds before voting so they can accumulate B/P points quickly. Frankly, there isn't much reason to care considering that the better flash animations will usually get the spotlight while those that barely pass will hardly be watched ever again.

I recall liljim once saying that this isn't much of a problem since those kinds of animations will go into the "abyss" of Newgrounds once they leave the portal, where they can only be found by Newgrounds's crappy search engine or google.

Maybe the passing score should be raised

I agree. They're pretty low at the moment:

Movies are deleted if they fall below the listed score at the listed number of votes:
100 votes: 1.0
150 votes: 1.25
200 votes: 1.60

The portal does plenty to generate buzz about quality flashes. Failing that, word of mouth on NG is powerful enough.

Plus, we have that subscriber system now.

i agree, people need to start taking judgement more seriously. i'm sure you all know that god is omniscient and is judging every moment you spend. you better spend your moments doing god's will, because he's omnipotent as well and will smite you if you don't behave

It wouldn't hurt to raise the pass score a little... or at least automatically blam passed entries that fall below 1.0.

I've seen submissions that aren't even earning -one- full star right now. How they passed is one thing, but do we really need to keep them when they fall below? That's just.... weird.
