There will finally be chat rooms. CHAT ROOMS!

What do you think the future Newgrounds will have or be like in 50 years.

There already is a chat room. What, you want more? The chat room is barely ever active.

Technology could also expand to some arbitrary media making websites obsolete, but for the sake of this thread I'll assume this won't happen.

By the time 50 years has passed, it's likely to assume Tom Fulp won't be in charge. I'm guessing NG will develop to support mobile and tablet gaming, and perhaps have their own software similar to steam. I think NG premium will eventually be a thing, as well as built-in donation buttons for all submittions, and certain games you have to pay a small amount for.

That or you know, the site dies ...

I doubt NG will be around in 50 years.
But stranger things have happened so who knows....

None of the users that have accounts will be on here anymore.
Someone will have somehow taken over Pimp's account and constant kept voting every day so he's still #1.
and We'll have a better chat on here other than the one we have now.

Yeah, you're right. It should be more like Myspace.

Wade will have successfully killed himself after his midnight sleep murderings finally got Tom.
Newgrounds also will be renamed "Video game parody cock joke land" after every other type of portal submission was slowly phased out.
Also TheShadling will hostilely make the art portal his new website after killing every other scouted artist ever and will successfully rule 34 every video game' tv show, and book known to man and start working his magic on the real world.

I love Newgrounds.

I've seen Newgrounds evolve so much.

What I hope is that Newgrounds constantly adapts, and constantly retains its quirkiness. It's the best website ever in my opinion, and I deeply thank Tom Fulp for making this site.

What I REALLY want is for Newgrounds to become a REALLY professionally made and fleshed out Android/iPhone App.

I wish I can experience a totally new, transformed Newgrounds on the phone.

This.

Also, it is rather interesting to think about who would be the owner of the site if it were still around fifty years from now. Would it stay in the family, or would Google buy it?

If the old chat was still around, you would be able to accomplish both simultaneously.

The level system will have increased again, from 60 to 100. Somewhere around 2017 NG will reach a million flash submissions. Flash will make a grand return again around 2025 and when Facebook finally gets sued for privacy issues and shuts down, it'll reach unprecedented amounts of users. It'll be a blooming creative community and finally in around 2042 the literature portal will get launched.

HTML5 (or HTML50) will have replaced Flash completely. By then, JavaScript 3 will have come out and it will turn out that they copied a lot of elements from ActionScript.

This is actually very likely unless Liam Fulp takes a big liking to the site. I doubt he will have the skills required, or the responsibility to.

That sounds like a... depressing future. :/
