This is nice. It'll make the portal look a little less beaten up, at least. Hopefully increase morale.

But the problem, from a user end, seems to be that the games and movies were both separated. The result of that is that games get a looooooooooot more attention.

I remembered submitting a game and it passed judgment in the same time my movies did pre-2012 redesign

I think you really only needed to lower the movie-threshold.

Gotta love all the responses emphasizing on blamming this and blamming that.. instead of reveling in the potential to pass good content faster. Such negativity.

[in Randy Marsh voice] My god.

Only 9 flashes under judgment this morning? Looks like the problem's taken care of-so long as people keep voting.

The REALLY COOL IMPROVEMENT is that games and movies can now get SAVED ahead of schedule.

50 Votes: BLAM if 1 or below, SAVE if 3 or above.
100 Votes: BLAM if 1.5 or below. SAVE if 2.5 or above.
150 Votes: BLAM if 1.75 or below. SAVE otherwise.

Good stuff previously had to wait out 200 votes.

Are there ads now running before movies even if they don't have Ad API running?

Yupper, we're just getting things off the ground at the moment, been holding off on an official announcement until it's all working properly.

This is true but times do change. I feel like the whole 1-4 is a big grey area that not a lot of people look at except for the few that take the time.

We were making updates to how content is embedded in the page and rather than maintain that feature, we dropped it. NG is starting to get held back by all the features we add and maintain over the years, so we're trying to reduce what we can as we move forward - less clutter (and confusion) on the page, less things to maintain. Most of the new content now fills the box, although it is nice when viewing old content but it wasn't used very much.

Yes, there is a difference between a 2 and a 3. A 2 literally means there's NOTHING special about it. A 3 means that he had a good effort going, but the execution of it made it average. A 1 means that it's so bad, but it's slightly forgivable.... and a 0, no grounds for forgiving whatsoever. Simple.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, why is Advanced Options removed? Because of this, if a flash version of a movie was available before and if it was on the video version before, it reverts to the flash version and the video version only plays on other devices! I want Advanced back...

That is coming back - when you upload multiple files you'll be able to drag their priority order. It will default to the existing data for stuff that already had it set previously.

The judgment process went from 3 days to under one hour, although I imagine that might change once this isn't hot news, but it should still be in good shape.

This is an historic occasion indeed.

OMG, only 4 UJ items in teh ol' Classic Portal! This means I'll be able to find the weird part of Newgrounds again, without having to wade through tons of daily random shite! It's like..... the old days *squeee* Except there's no way I'm starting at submission 1 and going to, say, 253, like I used to do by typing it in the address bar. The movies and games back then, were still pretty tiny, so it didn't take to long to watch them... and there was a certain bent appeal about checking out every single submission on Tom's apartment room "server"

I truly and utterly hope this kills the 0/5 bombers/stat whores off permanently. Everyone should be totally honest with their vote, and yes, NG should have a standard of excellence, meaning some stuff's gonna have an obit page. Back around 2000, I was aiming for a 1:1 blam/save ratio (which USED to be listed after you voted!!!)

Hopefully you will implement those animations that happen after you save or blam a submission now, makes voting more enjoyable.
