Nice to see Newgrounds is being setup to survive well into the future.

As for the office, I really have to go down there at least once.

This would be pretty cool - it could be a sort of "importance" level set on the trophy, so it could show your most important trophy, like Deathink would show his User of the Year trophy but if he hadn't won that, it would look for the next most important. I think the yearly ones could stick around forever, too, like a permanent badge of honor.

If that'd be too time-comsuming, maybe get some special mods to go through all the old lists and do it. I'd be willing to help out with that if needed/possible. Just a thought.

ALSO was the bug that only gave the daily trophy to the owner of the submission ever fixed? I know a few members of a certain Game Jam 7 team that would probably like to get their share of "my" 1st place trophy.

I'll definitely be retroactively giving awards. I may also be making awards for external events, like when Glaiel won Ludum Dare or if someone wins a film festival... Anything that helps validate the coolness of something someone made.

I thought that co-author thing was fixed but maybe it's not... Will have to look. This new trophy system would likely encompass all existing trophies so it could address that and also allow you do things such as browse all winners over time for a specific trophy, like daily Portal awards, monthly, etc, in one central location.

Hopefully! Presumably we would still have bedroom space available for people to crash there.

I think the deal with the co-author thing is, the trophy shows up here, but when you click "view all", it's not listed, and I'm pretty sure that means they can't front page post either. Where as the trophy shows up on my page because I submitted the game.

The beach would be so awesome but people have homes and families now so it would stay around here. I plan to buy outside of our township though because our property tax is the highest in the area and we have a business privilege tax too.

Buy one in Kansas City so I can come by and download years worth of stuff in an hour.

Yes, more candies plz!! Members who have contributed and won merits, should look like a Cold War dictators' military jacket, chock full of decorations! Though in most militaries, there's the big gaudy ones, then there's the abbreviated versions...

I just genuinely wish the forums were more active, but I guess that can't be helped. Good stuff man.

Great news! Who really wants money prizes... If anybody needs money, go to work, flash submissions brings only fame and not money. Unless you take the fame advantage and make them donate to you...

Dang, I forgot all about that! Thanks for the update! It was actually around Madness Day that I first sent reviews to this website. I'm the most recent person to start here who's in the Top 10 so it's pretty significant for me. Why was this date chosen? It wasn't the day the first Madness flash came or even when a popular one came. The closest submission before the holiday to that date made by Krinkels was a Breadman cartoon!

I've never cared about the Madness cartoons. If there's gonna be another game, though, that'll catch my interest.

Does this mean more storage space in the NG Dump?
