Better than ever, and I feel the difference.

I have a 50 mb/s connection through Verizon, and for the first time ever, I feel like I'm receiving that much when on Newgrounds. A TOME episode that may have took 3-5 minutes to load (estimating, I usually leave the tab elsewhere as it loads) now only takes 15-30 seconds, omg.


I lost the game.

1080p is so beautiful... Sniff...

And at last I see the light, and it's like the fog has lifted.

one issue i noticed is that i tryed to change the SWF of a game, and mabe because of the cache not updating instantly, i thought there was an error, but then it solved itself, mabe when the CF cache updated.

So it's a thing to have in mind when making changes to a game or movie, there might be a delay between the time you click save/publish and the time it actually updates the thing.

Huge performance boost on the PC in-browser, little difference on other devices.
No issues encountered so far!

Ironically, this performance boost has made NG almost unusable on my netbook...which is what I used 99% of the time.

Quick question.
Is it possible to embed videos on like Facebook or something if they don't have the little Embed button on the submission? Or would our best bet be to just post the link on there and have someone follow the link back to here?

TBH i haven't logged in since sometime in fall last year, but it's very slow right now...pages take 2-3 seconds extra and a music track à 10mb takes like 4 minutes to d/l..

As a website that is depending on bandwith, their dispute is costing you income.
I would put a claim on the losses it cost NG on the responsible companies.

Take a legal person to find out what can be claimed.
A site as big as yours loses a substantial amount of revenue when this happens.

This week Brendon hooked us up with CloudFlare's content delivery network. Our DNS is now running through CF and they are working some serious magic to get our files to you faster than ever, all over the world.

It has been 24 hours since we made the DNS change so everyone SHOULD be able to access NG right now, but some ISPs may still be caching the old record. If you know someone who can't access NG, tell them to try again later today, or try Google Public DNS.

We're also still working out some kinks with things like caching. If you update your game or movie, it may take a while before you see the new version running until this gets sorted out.

BURNING QUESTION: How is Newgrounds running for you today? Is it better than ever? The same? Do you FEEL the difference?

Now would be a good time to mention that our 2014 Supporter Upgrade is available, so you can browse NG with minimal ads and see the pages load even faster!

You know, I'm more worried in the future regarding the death of Net Neutrality. Now ISP can literally sabotage performance of websites they don't like.

It's actually a problem now for me, I use gs3 & nothing is loading up, just art & some movies, also im with T-Mobile, wouldn't it be better to make a separate website available for the networks for phones, sorry if it sounds confusing, just have the site separate from different types of users or networks, again sorry if its confusing, also I want to change my username, is it possible? Thank you for at least reading, have a nice day or night (^_^)/

Art portal thumbnails are sporadically loading, filesizes are being incorrectly reported, and the pod text isn't 'stylized' or compressed or something.... other hiccups too, dunno if they're network related.

It sounds like a Flash issue, but if it is network related, the staff is looking at it. Newgrounds is right smack-dab in the middle of a war online, between very large companies with billions of dollars at stake. And we're caught in the crossfire.. "Problems of the future, today", indeed. Instead of a gay-ass sunburst on the FP, we should have pictures of Detroit... start living up to our heritage again. Or I'm just sentimental, and slightly stoned again.
