I'm very glad we have access to a rich text now.

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?

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.

This. I prefer the grey and black color scheme with only the text being orange.

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

Not a fan of hearing that there are no plans for that, not at all. Can't make newspost with any tags in advance as I can't back them up as textfiles. The tag formats where even changed so every newspost that I backed up as newspost is now completely useless. That makes this update an absolutely disaster for me. But still nice work on making embed newgrounds mp4's and multiple pictures work, that is still something good, especially for artists.

Seriously, someone should correct the black text selection color into a more eye friendly one. You can barely see what you have selected in the new blog post system. Because of the very dark grayish background. Excuse my poor English. Besides this, it's fine.

What I mean is, in the past when I made a newspost, I made for example some words bold and italic and made some links, I was able to save the raw format of the newspost in a textfile. Later I am able to copy the text from this textfile into a newspost then the words would be bold/italic links etc. Now those tags are just broken, copying those old textfles into a newspost will produce broken tags.

That doesn't bother me too much but I can't even get the (new?) raw format anymore as there is no option for that. It would be however useful for users who use lots of text options and do newspost for weeks in advance. It would be a cool option to have:

nope i didnt do away with anything really, except the (::selection styling). The default editor has some stuff taken out by default and for the sake of not messing with the wiring i didnt turn on or off anything nor did i hide anything with css. I think once things stabilize i want to get bolder with exploring some of the features that the editor has reserved for more custom and advanced implementations
