Hey Tom! Why can't you embed SWF files into your blog?

The blogs are possibly one of my favourite things on Newgrounds. The current state of online is all about short, flighty observations. Twitter, status updates, tumblr, crappy meme images... It's mostly comforting to read a longer written update from people being actually productive instead of learning how many virtual pigs my mom bred.

God, to be honest, I wouldn't even mind the forum sodding off to make place for Blogging Grounds.

Glad to see them get even better!

Suffice to say I was disappointed by the lack of ability to embed SWF files into one's blog despite it being the fuel of Newgrounds [HTML5 is the equivalent of solar energy and the video player is the shitty hybrid nobody wants to drive]. In all honesty, I think it should've been a feature for all three file types on Newgrounds followed by posting music that's paused by default.

I guess you could debate that a SWF embedding program such as that could be abused to punish epileptic people, instantly send you to malicious sites and cause force-printing through your browser but fuck it, why not? We already have that in the normal portal system and we opened up the floodgates for retarded Let's-Play videos and people posting their music / music ripped from games as videos on Newgrounds so why not allow fuckers to embed seizure inducing shit on their userpage?

Hell, we could even regulate that shit with a new mod team in the same way Under Judgment content is so users that try that shit will lose the privilege to post in their blogs like they would for reviews if they shitposted every review they wrote.
There could even be limits on how much you can post in one blog post, like the system weighs the total file size verses the total number of SWF files you're trying to embed; let's say we've got fifty megs in total and I want to embed two SWF files into my blog, I'd have to split that total limit between them so each of the only gain access to 25 megs or something akin to that concept.

It'd certainly set it apart from most websites dedicated just to blogs like Blogger.

It seems like it's impossible now to copy embed and bold tags over into text documents, same goes for links. I always saved my future newsposts fully formatted in text format, but that's not possible anymore. That kind of sucks, to be honest. For now I will just format them manually in textfiles I guess. More inconvenient than before but the only solution :/

If you're going to address every site improvement with no gratitude and "you should have done this", then it's a wonder why you think anybody would appreciate your feedback.

Bliss to me to see NG listen to the wistful whispers of its distant history!

I'd really like a page that shows EVERY piece of content and artist news post as it gets made, where they just pop in at the top of the list (or you click a little link that tells you how many new items are available and it pops them at the top, ala Twitter).

Sounds awesome. Even more so if it's actually a primarily textual listing.

I guess an option to toggle between the rich text editor and regular code could solve this issue?

I did this:

<object width="100" height="100">
    <param name="movie" value="file.swf">
    <embed src="file.swf" width="100" height="100">
    </embed>
</object>

It was successful in the preview; but when published, the code was code.

If you're going to shitpost and reject objective criticism with ad hominems then it's a wonder why you think I should be grateful for every mediocre update that's implemented. I've noticed you've still haven't actually challenged the substance of my critique.

I really dig the grey bar thingies over the dark orange. What is the chance of a future GUI update allowing us to change the colors of the bar thingies?

The ability to add multiple images to a blog post is really nice; it would be very useful for my future game guides.

However, I have a question: how do I switch between the rich text editor and the raw text editor? As silly as it sounds, I sometimes prefer to edit the raw markup directly.

Thanks for the information, Tom.

On the subject of which, I've noticed it's possible to get the raw text by copying the rich text and pasting it into the Blogger editor under the latter's "Compose" mode, and then switching to HTML view. However, it doesn't work very well the other way around: some of the formatting was lost and others were added when I copied rich text created in Blogger to Newgrounds.

UPDATE:

Content embeds no longer auto-play! Now you can pop multiple videos/audio in one blog without making people's ears bleed.

Oh, I thought you meant you were seeing the orange theme in the editor itself.
