There is an option to automatically play flashes, click the gear icon that is next to your username when you are logged in and to the far left you will find the content display options, check "Automatically play general content" or all three if you want, here is a picture to explain it better:

Please, look into the issue when somebody's online. IE browser stopped embedding most games at all. Did some research on the matter - seems that games with medals work fine. Those that do not have medals - do not load at all, no game window and just a dot where a file size should be.
Voting bar is gone too, but that's minor, compared to other issues. Has something to do with the embedder or its sizing somewhere.

Vnzi's too cool to tell Tom to grow up and fix his icon, and I asked her... Tom, it looks like someone hacked your account and poo-pooed doughnut jelly all over your faic. Hope you can get the game medal in-page embed thing back to where it used to be - all the other changes look good and serve their purpose well!

The problem is that they are from spam (?) accounts. When I decline them, I get the request again some time later so I just let them unanswered. I declined them again for now.

I keep getting this error every time I try playing an audio submission:

"Your Browser does not support flash/html5 audio playback.!!!"

I have Chrome version 28.0.1500.72 m

I made a few online tests to see if my browser supports html5 audio playback and I don't seem to have any problem with it. On the other hand, I can play flash games and movies here perfectly.

I'm not sure if this is a glitch or not, but for some reason I can't seem to find the voting bar.

I clicked to start the submission, but the voting bar still doesn't show up. This happens for all the submissions that I've visited so far since this update was released.

Any thoughts about patching up this glitch?

And then there are some other times when the whole set-up of the submission is just screwed up for some reason.

The animation/game would not load. Instead, it's just a little black screen. I tried refreshing my page, but that didn't do any good. And everything else is not at where it's supposed to be. See the screenshot below.

This problem has started occurring since the release of this new update.

Yup! Just the same for me. No voting bar and most submissions go with the black screen. Only games with medals seem to work. What browser are you using?

Hey Tom could you check out this suggestion I made in regards to the new stuff for voting?
http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1345691#bbspost24737570_
post_text

I mean I like how its set up and all that but I feel not having the voting bar thing there may deter some people from voting because they might think they aren't able to vote anymore and might not see it popup (for some odd reason) after you click the Play button.

Why should people have a chance to vote before they watch it? Unless they are just voting blindly for stats.

That's exactly what I've been doing all these years on Newgrounds. I click on a submission that's currently under judgement and I just vote either a 0 or 5 on it without even watching or playing it. That way I can quickly earn exp points as well as some blam/save points.

This new update has slowed me down somewhat, but not much.

Looking at the browse all sections under Movies and Games, there appear to be 147,840 movies and 68,324 games if my math is correct.

I just published some updates that cater to old versions of IE. You may need to clear your cache for them to kick in, but you should be able to vote again.

I'm not saying that they'd have a chance to vote before they watch it. I'm saying having the voting bar there but you won't be able to click on it til after you click Play for UJ flashes and then do what you're doing now with the flashes after they pass Judgement (probably should have added that last part...). Though I understand what you're talking about.

Unable to view movies, play games, or listen to audio (the players don't show up, and on movies & games, the page is split into two columns like other users have posted - using safari) Art still works. I've cleared cache, etc. to no avail. Is everything still in limbo, or is it just me?

I'm assuming this issue is posing a challenge for the NGADM participants.
Also, looks like Game Jam 9, Robot Day 2013 and whatever else is held back.
We have a contest coming up for some free gear - going to hold off until things are ironed out.

Please provide HELPFUL information like your operating system and browser version. I can't fix problems without being able to replicate them, and I can't replicate them without knowing what environment is having problems.

Everything is top notch again with my Ubunto Linux system, checked on here & read it was fixed & voila... so it was!... back to voting as normal... No glitches to report, even my crap old firefox version is accepting the new update no bother.

And with regards to the user stating that it may deter people from voting if they can't see the voting bar... {due to sheer confusion or retardation, one of the 2} I get what you mean by saying make it would be easier by keeping the voting bar in sight but just not allow people to use it until they view/play the submission. At the same time though, that's what News Updates are for, it's up to the newgrounds community to check up on this kind of shit. Instead of sitting there whining & wondering "why isn't it working??!"

Lesson today, read Toms shit... cause he's the man with the knowledge

I get the same problems as one person did a few posts up. The Players won't load for me either. Tested on WIndows XP with Firefox 22.0. Surprisingly, works fine with Firefox 22 on my Elementary OS Lappie....

Did you clear your cache and reboot Firefox? Always gotta ask since it's the most common issue with js updates.

I've been banging my head testing on firefox 22.0, and safari 5.05/5.17 (both for windows 7) and I just can't replicate the problems you guys are having. Are any other users having issues with these particular browsers? Is every submission breaking, or just specific ones? What version is your flash plugin?

ok i don't know if this is the right place to post it or even if this topic already came up in the posts before but I'm just gonna go ahead. Since the last downtime no games are loading for me. the musik still works i did not check the movies though.

But whatever game i'm trying to play it doesn't even appear. There's just the black background of the newgrounds-side.

For reference my fierfox is on it's newest update.
