I can see that. It would be nice to see a slightly more borderless Newgrounds tho.

Also I had tinkered with social media icons in the header but they were feeling visually distracting. I still regularly question the value of all the social media presence too.

I don't think many people share entire sites as opposed to specific content, come to think of it.

Now that latest news is in the header, do you feel any desire to have it in the left column? I'm thinking we can just get rid of it, ditch the header, and lead with notifications and calendar - bringing everything else up higher.

bear with me , I have been hitting the sauce...

Personally I like the news pod, it makes it easy to see if any of my favorite artist have any new news for me (new news?! lol). And the new "latest news" links placement looks very arbitrary. And I do get a lot of page views when ever I make a Front page post. But you know what I would really like, instead of posting to the front page once every other week, if you could post to your fans "Latest From Your Favorites" feed once every other week instead.

Also I don't know if this can help you guage anything, but the two pods I am most eager to see change are the "news & events" pod and the "latest from you favorites "pod

Anyway, keep us the streamlining effort, it will pay off in the end.

It'll probably take a while to get used to not looking to the sidebar for news, but overtime this could definitely be easier. Also, how about styling the latest news notice in the sidebar area as calender notices ( Mon ## - Title ); use a divider to keep it separate. That'd cut down on space a bit, not to mention the date posted is useful info.

On the topic of change, how about changing the All News link to Calender or Events? You can easily get to more news via the specific news topic (and the header if that's permanent), but since the calender entries are linked to specific topics it takes the obscure Community drop-down menu item to get there.

It's strange how NG is a social community in itself, and still markets itself via others (and promotes those communities at the same time). Feels like header space would be overkill IMHO. Speaking of which, any plans to re-initiate the NG Fan Net? That was a great way for users to direct traffic here and get rewarded at the same time, not to mention a great way to find other personal creative websites.

I can see that. It would be nice to see a slightly more borderless Newgrounds tho.

Trying to get there - sitewide changes never end up being as quick as expected although maybe if this last redesign was done well enough, it will be easier this time to adjust than the last redesign would have been.

But you know what I would really like, instead of posting to the front page once every other week, if you could post to your fans "Latest From Your Favorites" feed once every other week instead.

Every blog post you make should appear in the "Latest From Your Favorites" feed - but news currently only appears in the full-length feed, vs the front page summary. We should probably move news into the front page box too, but there is the concern about redundancy with the artist news down the left column. Also I would be tempted to make the "Latest From Your Favorites" front page box show MORE content, but we need to put something in so it only extends if its NEW content you haven't seen yet... so once you view it, the box could shrink down to something smaller.

There is a TON we want to do with expanding on feeds but the feed system in its current form needs to be rewritten to properly handle everything, so that's been a roadblock at the moment.

Also when I mentioned getting rid of news in the left column, I just meant official site news. Removing the site news would bring the Artist News higher up for more people to see. Moving the site news into the header does feel kinda weird but it makes it visible on every page of the site, resulting in a lot more people reading the site news and hopefully getting involved in the broader pulse of what's going on with the site.

No plans to bring back to the fan-net but we do talk about stuff to encourage more people to link to content on NG, such as a way to get listed as a top referrer on a piece of content. Would encourage more people to plug NG content on their social networks.

That'd be cool, seems like it'd go hand-in-hand with an embed feature too. No site-wide referrer top-list though? It'd be fun!

Halloween's the second holiday we make the most flashes for, next to Christmas. It actually ranks pretty low in terms of total revenue, behind Mother's Day and Valentine's Day, because those are holidays where you're more likely to give someone a present. Costumes and decorations just don't add up to that.

Is it okay if I post what I did here?

I've been making music for a few years now and was feeling pretty hopeless about the whole process but this song right here made me feel so good I can't even explain it.

I just want to share it but I'll take down this post if that's not okay.

Being the prolific reviewer that I am, I always look for new sections that come up and I review whatever's the most popular in the collections or most acclaimed or made by an author I really like. That being said, I love this new thing you did where you listed the score and views on everything in the section. I don't think you had that before the new launch and I appreciate that.
