Is Newgrounds a bad word? 2013-04-03 13:16:55 Reply

I was in a discussion on Steam today and I thought i was going nuts for a second. I was trying to make a reference to the 'Newgrounds.com Forums', which came out as ############## Forums. So then I took the '.com' off and simply said Newground's Forums. Again, ############ Forums. I think I might be missing a point somewhere, but, why would Newgrounds be censored as a word, separately from a website?

Youre lying, it only does that for when people put steam or valve in their name so they cant trick people into giving account details

Most of the outside world seems to think that Newgrounds is some kind of weird porn site (I guess they're partially correct).

Maybe the forum doesn't allow links?

Thats what I thought, but they allowed me to link to a British Gaming site. I can't remember if I can show '.com's and stuff here so I wont. It was the Greenman one though.

Only NG got censored.

All of the great free games on Newgrounds are a threat to their business model.

We should block Steam on NG until they change it.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I just made a ##### forum account, validated it via their email and linked it to my main Steam account, but it is still not letting me post anything yet. Gonna give it some time in case they put a delay on it.

If anyone gives you shit for it, kick them right in their Newgrounds, that'll shut their mouth.

If true, this could be a PR windfall for Newgrounds as an underdog of the masses. Maybe send Wired or C-Net the proof... if it's a financial story (which, restraint of trade or speech, could be) it would definitely get picked up by bigger news sources, put us on the map without any tragedy or controversy... it'd all be on Steam's fat head :|

Perhaps because of NG mature content?

As much as I do enjoy the very name of this website I've always had a thing for "NeoGeo". Still though, to censor it out like it was some profane or obscene term!? Curse you Steam, YOU SON OF A NEWGROUNDS!


A man turns into an empty and hollow shell of his former self NewGrounds Mike is STILL not American.
