Goodbye Store, Hello Follow Friday! Mar. 7th, 2014 @ 03:50 PM Reply

I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to everyone who ever bought anything from the store. We had so many orders this week, it's hard to imagine what Newgrounds would be like today if the store had ALWAYS been that popular. Things don't always work out how we want them to, but I promise we'll keep trying to make things work.

Every store item ever has now been archived in the Wiki.

Today liljim pushed out a streamlined account page. We've removed the management tools for news because you can now access your block list from any existing news post. The remaining content has been formatted in a single list for better readability, vs the old layout that had a bunch of boxes all over the place.

On Monday PsychoGoldfish will be pushing a fix to solve browser cache issues for people updating their submissions, then he'll be back to wrapping up the new feed system.

Create a song inspired by a piece of art on NG and participate in RealFaction's contest!

Also don't forget Stencyl Jam, Pico Day and the Annual Tournament of Animation. We're just getting warmed up here; big events coming.

Hey it's Follow Friday!

Here's how it works, when you see something you like on NG, scroll down and click the hearts next to all the people who worked on it. Then, when they make more stuff later, it will show up in your feed! More detailed info here.

We'll start with a new account you probably aren't following: smbctheater. Their first upload:

  • Battleship Cathy
    Battleship Cathy by smbctheater

    Battleship Cathy is on a mission to find a romantic partner in a casual social setting!

They plugged the NG version on their Facebook but their NG account doesn't have a link to their Facebook; they should add that! Maybe a profile picture while they're at it; people like looking at those.

AtroxChobatsu was the first person to follow smbctheater, so he gets a plug too. He made front page in January of 2013, with this movie:

  • Torn
    Torn by AtroxChobatsu

    A short story about two paper sisters, and the accident that tore them apart.

It's cool to see more people I'm actually following appear on the list. I really need to start following more people, it's fun finding out when they submit something.

Also, is it supposed to say "thanks for being a supporter" when I'm not one? Maybe I should become one soon though, I've been meaning to, just don't have any money ;3

Also the 4XL was added to inventory after being dug up but it still shouldn't be able to be bought at the moment, that bug was fixed.

Ah sorry about that guys, that was me. I was just toying around with the hide gear option.
I was wondering if it would display something other then "Has not gear" if I hid them.
Like if it said "This gear pack is private" or something.

I suppose that's what they mean when they say curiosity killed the cat.

We had so many orders this week, it's hard to imagine what Newgrounds would be like today if the store had ALWAYS been that popular. Things don't always work out how we want them to, but I promise we'll keep trying to make things work.

Your welcome Tom, I was happy to have spent my money on Newgrounds. If I were rich, I would’ve bought everything in the store. And although it’s gone, I thank you for making the store for us fans. Keep making this place awesome!
