Very cool presentation for the tank award winners. I fully agree with the submissions and users who got it, they TOTALLY earned it. Nicely done, NG!

USER OF THE YEAR?!
This is soooo fucking amazing!

I don't know if you heard, but I LOVE NEWGROUNDS... A LOT!

I don't really know what to write (and truthfully I am starting to get very drunk), so I will just take this opportunity to thank people who deserve it.

I would be here all day if I listed them by name, so I will just say "to all the user, YOUR AWESOME!Probably the coolest online community of all time, past , present and future". Its so refreshing to know that my art is being checked out by people with similar interests, people who's opinions I might just give a shit about.

To the staff and moderators "THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK", it is a lot of hard work, but you guys still go above and beyond.

To all the NEWGROUNDS veterans "You have my respect" you seen how important this place was before anyone else and were/are integral in its longevity.

And lastly (but not least) "Thanks Tom!" you are a constant source of inspiration. You are a true philanthropist and 1000x more deserving of this award.Thanks for everything!

I will leave you with my favorite quote from one of my all time favorite users...

My faith in humanity has often taken blows on Newgrounds. But none have ever hit so hard as the popularity of Lucky Day Forever. Which is my least favorite flash on all of Newgrounds. I can't help but look past the animation and the sexual innuendos throughout to the base story of "ugly black people who live in poverty and servitude all dream of being attractive white people who live in opulence." Which I find to be very insulting.

Not all of them were ugly, I found the girl who's accused of being a whore sorta attractive.
you're looking at this thing from the wrong angle.

I'm very satisfied with the winners this year.

I'm curious as to what you find so insulting about it. If the animation is racist towards anyone it's racist towards white people because it's making them look like elitist overloads who lack compassion towards other races. The animation seems to be from a black perspective seeing as the protagonist is black (supposedly) and you're supposed to identify with him.

But really, I don't think the animation has anything to do with race. It's about the subjugated masses of people who are manipulated into eternally longing for a better life that doesn't exist. Maybe it's a story about "ugly people who live in poverty and servitude all dreaming of being attractive people who live in opulence." But what's so offensive about that?


I got Flash CS4 in case you need something converted to CS3.

I need help importing videos to Youtube... I tried importing my most recent one to youtube and its almost like after uploading to youtube the animation is sped up and ends up horrible and choppy! When i preview my animation in flash it looks great and its just the same here on NewGrounds! But for some strange reason when I try to put i on youtube it gets very choppy and speeds up to where its way to fast! Any help with this?

Use Swivel. Also, wrong thread.

Also, congratz to the winners! LDF was my favorite animation, and of course Abobo won.

Congrats to the winners! It feels like it was just yesterday i watched Lucky Day Forever, with its amazingly interesting premise, artstyle, and atmosphere.

And also played the shit out of Abobo's Big Adventure.
Challenging and fun, with old school references, and extremely fun controls :)

I haven't really heard any of Kor-Rune's music before now, til this award popped up. But his guitar solo's are freakin awesome :D

And deathink is just awesome. Enough said :D

Really? You find it more insulting than Sandy Hook Shootemup? I agree that there were some definite inconsistencies throughout Lucky Day Forever, and pretty subjective themes, but it really set a good tone throughout and the animation was keen.

I definitely enjoyed Batman Hates Bronies, Ragemelon, and Swelter better, though.

Abobo's BIg Adventure was pretty cool, I mean maybe I just didn't get it. I thought Infectionator 2 was betfter, but those guys (Toge Productions) just sort of vanished off the Earth. Maybe they graduated college and stopped caring or something. I would rather that happen than a fatal accident or anything like that.

And then to add to the controversy, there is Hillbilly Bongo School.

PS: what's a "deathink"?
