I guess? It's like the Windows 7 interface > Windows 8. Hope they don't just phase it out because that is really the core of this website.

Silly me, I should've looked harder.

It really is the core, I'd even go as far as calling it the heart of the website. I like how it doesn't even seem that different.

Indeed, I appreciate how they let the old layout live through the re-design. A few features I've noticed have been removed though:

- Reviews viewable on obituaries.
- A 'view all' option in classic portal style.
- The portal stats featuring uses with most/least submissions, best/least rated, most/least reviewed etc. That was a fun list!

You will hate it in two years, and love it again in three. I've been there.

At first, I was like, 'Holy shit, Lorkas is still here.' and then I was like, 'I don't actually care about this.' So, I moved on. NGs has always been a place for immature little teens to get their dick humour in, and that's fine with me.

2006-2009:
"wow this website is cool, there are a lot of really cool people on this website that are willing to make flash animations, just simply for the fun of it, not for any gratification."

2010-2011:
"wow this website is really starting to degrade, there aren't really that many people around who want to make flash. At least the BBS is still active, with people who understand sadistic and sarcastic humor"

2012-2013:
"wow this website has really gone to shit, there is no one who makes flash anymore, and even if there were, our flash just gets deleted automatically. Oh well, at least the BBS is (not) the same.

I also remember you. Do you remember me?

I used to think of it as a haven for my online entertainment needs. And this was after hopping off being a regular at ebaumsworld and albinoblacksheep, the comparison of this site and those around 2003 were WAYYYY one sided; NG was the place to go for games and animations. It was just great!

Now, I'm actually pretty stoked in how much it's grown. I wear a Newgrounds patch (and a Mindchamber patch) on my favorite biker jacket, and I have an NG sticker slapped on the side of my motorcycle, and I'm still kinda surprised in how many people in Dallas remember the site. Some people hadn't visited in years, some are still regulars, but they remember distinctly what it stood for. And it still stands for the same stuff, but it's expanding.

I have, and always will, think of NG as limitless potential. When it emblazoned "Everything By Everyone" and the collab functions back in the day were really impressing upon it's users to really promote creativity. And I'm disappointed in the density of Pokemon Parodies and unoriginality in general, but yet, I'm just as guilty of doing the same shit and I know now WHY we do that...it's about a comfort zone. It's about fear in messing up our own works. Yet, with the right push, by the right talent, FROM the right people, it could inspire and ignite a FIRESTORM of original brilliance, and this website has all of the resources, all of the contacts, everything we could possibly need to realize imagination in a physical form.

It's ALREADY a juggernaut of a creative nexus. It's a Portal to inspiration and stimulation. I see nothing but potential, here and within the community. The store is tiny compared to what it WILL be, the portal is cluttered compared to what it WILL be. The ability to share content will improve, everything will improve. It takes time and teamwork, effort, and probably money, but NG will have history to back a legacy that will launch it into the eyes of many.

I used to think that NG was a magical place where people who were extremely talented collaborated to create wonderful works of art. Now I think NG is kind of like high school with all the cliques and elitist douchebags making games and movies and shit.

I wish I had chosen a different username. Im quickly becoming less fond of this whole furry thing, as it seems that it has followed me into the real world in the form of whiny, over-sensitive freaks. There are even kids at my school wearing tails. Fuck that shit.

Newgrounds is exactly the same as it was when I signed up really. You see the same threads you saw years ago and the same types of people.

Nothing changes honestly.
