Newgrounds had it's redesign. At first, NGers were revolted, criticizing the childish layout and colors. Overtime, we've grown to love(or despise) the redesign. Throughout the past year, new features have been added to NG, along with new members of the forums. Heck, we even have a new admin helping run the site! To me, it seems like yesterday when everyone was waiting for the redesign, watching all of the shorts while the site was down. When the new beast of the design was unleashed, NG wouldn't stop crashing for almost a day. In my opinion, this was the biggest change to NG in the past years of it's existence. I love Newgrounds, and will never leave.

So, fellow forum members, how has your experience with the layout change, as well as all of the other changes in the past year?

I think I'm a day late, but it's okay because if you're on the forums, you most likely have time on your hands. Yoink!

At first I was like "What the fuck is this shit" but now I'm like, "Yeah it's pretty cool. It's modern." But I miss the userpage headers.

Overall there wasn't a time where I didnt' like the redesign.
And I've been really liking the new stuff they've been adding onto here as well.
I wont deny that I miss the previous design though.

Never disliked the redesign either.

Waiting for the site to get back online again was a pain though. To that time I realized how much I actually love Newgrounds.

Still, good times. Watched all of these videos hundreds of times.

I'm a fan of the redesign. More of a modern feel and the 'more colour' is a nice touch, glad they didn't go overboard with it.

I still don't like how the Classic Portal is hidden at the end of a list when it's pretty much the only page I visit in the Games & Movie sections. Everything you need is still right there, on one page, along with a lot of other interesting info that the new pages don't offer. An option tin a users profile o switch out the Games & Movie tabs with Portal & Submit would be awesome (Submit at the end of the menu, Portal at the beginning). I miss the complicated user accounts pages, and the old slogan (but that was before last redesign anyway). I also miss the old level icons...

Otherwise I've embraced the change. The search works better, the interface is easier to use, everything's faster... and the new features keep popping up. It really is a sleek layout.

Nothing really, still the same. It crashed like a test dummy the first week but now it's ok.
