Kingbastard showed up in my feed as I was writing this. He's become a really successful musician since he joined NG nine years ago, you would think he would have over 1000 NG fans by now. Follow him!

I'll be posting the official Pumpkin Carving submission thread next week for Halloween!

Also don't miss your chance to make a movie, game, art or music for the Halloween Spooktacular this month.

My family is all dressing up as Minions from Despicable Me (per the kids) for Halloween. What outfit have you picked out for this year?


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

Nothing.
I don't go out for Halloween anymore as I am 20 and have no one to go around with. Or to do that would require a costume. And don't say "Halloween Party" or whatever because I've never been invited to a party that wasn't a family party in my entire life.

Well ok, but just for the occasion! :)

Catoblepas, Neutronized & Kingbastard

All great artists. Been following them for a long time! I remember back when Kingbastard had the most tracks of anybody in the AP, those were the days... will check out those other three...

I was plotting a pirate costume with authentic cutlass... but there'll be no party. :/

You know what these Follow Fridays got me thinking about? What if in addition to being able to support Newgrounds, you could also support artists that you follow? You could tip them or set up a subscription to support them on a regular basis. It would be a cool way to support the artists you love and would probably bring in more revenue for them than just Flash Ads :)

Kingbastard doesn't have 1,000 fans?! I thought he was one of the most popular and well-known musicians of the site. I hope this post helps give him some exposure though.

I'm really happy to see Catoblepas back in action. Manly-Chicken has always supplied great content, and Grompula's Zelda parody really stood out. A huge tip of the hat to all of these contributors.

It's Halloween again, and I'm excited to share my 3rd iteration to the pumpkin carving contest. Every year brings a slough of creativity in the most uncommon of medians. Can't wait to see the competition!

You're really late with the carving thread this year. GET ON IT!

Years ago we had Paypal "tip" buttons but no one ever used them - this was long before crowdfunding and a more generous spirit hit the web, though. We were just talking about revisiting this sort of thing, we'll see where things end up in 2014!

Tip the Web looks like a pretty good alternative to the Paypal donate button. It doesn't take a cut of any tips which is a plus, but the payouts are through Paypal so that's a minus, but it's still something worth looking into...


Please take any criticism as helpful advice not an attack. I wouldn't have taken the time to reply if I didn't like your post!

Hey yeah! Seeing as those kickstarters are working out quite well, it seems like a really good idea! And if Paypal could then be used as a payment option for the NG store, that would be awesome.
