You may have noticed that we updated the navbar to officially remove the store but the store isn't closed just yet!

You can still go buy stuff while it remains in stock. Early Friday morning I'll be removing everything from stock, at which point the store will be part of NG history... On that note I need to update the NG history.

But seriously, buy a Tankman! We have SO MANY BOXES.

Also a reminder that you can continue to purchase the supporter upgrade and browse NG without ads.

The navbar slot is now promoting the feed, which has a big update coming so we want more people to be aware of it. If you aren't logged in, it will link you to this page, encouraging you to sign up so you can follow artists and have a feed of your own!

Also sorry about the downtime this morning! Most of the downtime recently has been due to hardware upgrades and restructuring; this morning however was some bad hardware but everything is good now.

Last chance for monthly romance! Check your account page to see if you're on the voting panel to decide the Best of Feb.

Some store items we dug up that were previously not shown in stock:

2XL Badly Drawn Dog Shirt
L, XL, 2XL Retarded Animal Babies Shirts
Tankmen Stickers

Those RAB shirts had actually traveled to Comic-Con years ago, ended up in Behemoth storage and then were shipped back to us, where they remained hidden until this afternoon. They are very worldly shirts.

I didn't realize the feed nav bar until you pointed it out.
It's a shame that the store is going to be gone, its one of those things that you don't notice that often but when its gone you'll miss it.

Probably no shirts but people will probably be welcome to take a Tankman and a Penicorn home.

This sucks. I want to buy a bunch of stuff but alas cannot. At least I was here to see the store as a part of Newgrounds.

It's funny, I've gotten so used to checking up on the store this week that I'm now accidentally clicking the Feed button all the time to check on the store.

I like the new "Your Feed" drop down. Probably the most needed thing on the navbar, much easier to check if anybody has replied to a forum post. Still gutted that I never bought anything for the store but I guess if you had to downsize you had to downsize.


I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

It looks like the link to "Forum Replies" in the "Your Feed" menu goes to the same URL as "Blog Replies".

Speaking of the Feed, when I click to "forum replies" it just redirects to "blog replies"

Saw that, not a bad idea.

You can still go buy stuff while it remains in stock. Early Friday morning I'll be removing everything from stock, at which point the store will be part of NG history... On that note I need to update the NG history.

Sad to see it end. A few other wiki pages could use some more love and updates too. :)

But seriously, buy a Tankman! We have SO MANY BOXES.

How many would you say are left?

Also a reminder that you can continue to purchase the supporter upgrade and browse NG without ads.

Fun Fact: A rated content still shows an ad for MMORPG games on the site. Intentional or accidental?

2XL Badly Drawn Dog Shirt
L, XL, 2XL Retarded Animal Babies Shirts

Almost felt tempted to buy them but passed given how much I've bought since it was announced the store is closing. :(

Tankmen Stickers

I thought those were on the Stickers & Posters page. Could have been wrong though.

Anything else that might pop up for sale tonight?

Please tell me it's not going to the trash. :( Indie shops would buy this stuff for their websites.

But seriously, buy a Tankman! We have SO MANY BOXES.

I wish I could. But that shipping rate faces some harsh waves of high finances.

Here lies the end of an era:

Why did you have to close the store when I had no money left, Tom? It's almost like you did this on purpose.

So when I said you should keep the feed star, I lied. I like the nav button a lot more. Number notifications like under PMs showing something new is there would be nice too.

I know that feeling. Postage is a bastard, it's why I can't afford anything that I want.

We have just over 900, from an initial order of 2000.

I have been trying to buy some stuff with my store credit for a while I even had to put my card info in to pay for the shipping and handling, but every time it just sends me back to the beginning without sending the order through. But all I really want is some tankmen and penicorns anyway, so hold onto a couple for me until picoday and we will call it even.
