Special thanks to BrokenDeck and Step for assisting with the music judging!

Congrats to the winners and thank you everyone who helped make Robot Day a special day on NG!

Also thank you everyone for bearing with us through months of publishing bugs and the transition to the new publishing system, which introduced some new bugs that are being fixed. Our spring / summer cleaning will hopefully be wrapped up by the fall. A lot of back-end work is being done with how we process and store text, so that special characters no longer turn into garbage and long text strings don't get broken up with spaces. We're also changing to HTML5 Doctype and all this other boring stuff that will allow us to provide structured data for search engines.

PsychoGoldfish has two exciting updates that were dependent on the recent updates to the view page and are likely to launch this month!

Game Jam 9 winners will be announced next week.

Today is August 1st, check your account page to see if you're on the panel to select the Best of July! We sent a mass-PM last month which was hugely successful in raising voter awareness, but it wasn't a very efficient method in terms of data load. We're working on something that integrates with the notification system instead so you might not receive a notification about it this month.

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

Congrats to the art winners! I'm gutted that I missed joining, but by the looks of it you guys were dead certs.

Since in June people were complaining that Bliss or Clockwork Gentlemen weren't higher, I was wondering if people could use this opportunity to vouch for submissions that they want to win, but may have been missed or overlooked, and that you think is well worth the watch/play.

For example

  • Jebediah's Television

Congrats to all the winners. Though I feel the Pip The Robot and Mega Man movies should have been flipped around.

Yay more updates.

We sent a mass-PM last month which was hugely successful in raising voter awareness, but it wasn't a very efficient method in terms of data load. We're working on something that integrates with the notification system instead so you might not receive a notification about it this month.

I never received a PM about the voting stuff last month.

NG holidays still go on? I'm a little surprised. I wonder if this tradition will last long enough for the next Robot Day or Madness Day to arrive. Hate to see these celebrations die off.


Just chillin' like always.

There are wayyyy too many awesome animations this month. I wasn't even a third down the page when my top 10 became completely filled. Ugh, now I feel like a dick for not being able to vote for them all.

Oh well, time to be indecisive and stare at the options for fifteen minutes!

I don't see WHY Newgrounds holidays would die off. The only way, would be for users to just stop submitting actual dedicated content to NG. If NG days DO die off, we only have ourselves as users to blame.

We plan on cementing our feet into NG for as long as we remain Analog By Nature. Whether we are collaborating with other users, or you're using our stuff, or supplying loops/voice work/tracks - we are here to stay. Feel free to grab our music, use in your submission, remix, whatever. We only ask for a name drop.

Lastly, thank you NG staff, judges, every single participant during RD2013, and each NG user out there!

More like exciting! Adding structured data should boost the exposure NG artists receive from searches across the web which of course is good for the artists & the amount of revenue NG brings in via Ad views.

I am curious to know what "All this other boring stuff" pertains to though. A fully responsive version of NG?

Seriously, I think every single movie I voted for could have won Best of the Month in any other month.

Yeah, I've been really enjoying all the animations too. It seemed like for a while there wasn't a lot of good animation and I was missing it/worried. I'm so envious of animators and what they do.

Cool idea, I think the next thing should be embedded audio so people can play it on sites like SoundCloud tunes.
