Feed & Email Update Jul. 9th, 2014 @ 12:32 PM Reply

PsychoGoldfish just pushed a big feed update live. If you aren't logged in, you won't notice. Sign up to join the fun!

Get to your feed by clicking "YOUR FEED" on the far right of the navbar.

Important notes:

1) You will probably see a GIANT number of new feed items noted on the front page. This is because the new system has been running for a while now. The number will reset when you look at it.

2) The star in the header now only appears when you have new feed items. It no longer serves as a mini-feed.

3) The friends button in the header now only appears when you have pending requests.

4) When browsing your feed, click the GEAR icon on an item for an explanation of why it is there and the ability to exclude it from your feed. The page to manage these details is another week away so you won't be able to undo things you remove at the moment.

We'll be watching to see what concerns crop up as a result of the new system. It might feel like information overload at first but give it a chance to soak in!

EMAIL UPDATE

We updated the formatting of our emails this week, they now look like this.

The weird thing is that gmail appears to be sending the emails to the SPAM folder. They weren't previously going there so it could be something with the formatting, but to our knowledge we are following all of Google's recommendations. We'll be doing tests each day with changes to see if that solves it.

Can you please do the following?

1) Check your spam folder for emails from Newgrounds. If they are there, click the "Not SPAM" button at the top of the page when you read the email.

2) Check your email address on file and make sure it is up-to-date, so we aren't sending emails to a bad address.

If you want to be sure you are / aren't getting the emails, manage your subscriptions!

At first I thought I was hacked or spammed or something, because there were so many!

I'm really liking the new interface, but do I really need a notification every time my friends fan someone? It get's a bit annoying (however, I really really like the notification when a user follows ME).

You can click the gear to disable that notification... We'll have to consider if we want some to be disabled by default, once we have the management tool in place.

The cool thing about that notification though is you can discover new artists through your friends.

Thought I was popular for a minute when i saw all those notifications. GUESS NOT.

Anyway, I like that the star goes away when you have nothing new. I'm all about keeping that shit up there as clutter free as possible.

Also first post.

One question:
Will there be a way to hinder my friends from seeing what news posts or forum posts I've commented on?
Will be kinda annoying that they will be able to find out every single thing I do on the site :/.

Why couldn't he have made a community vote?
He could have made thread asking people about the change.

Shouldn't the users decide, to an extend, how their site runs?

I think you meant "downgrade."

The player is a resource hog and usually ends up crashing flash, there's absolutely no incentive to vote in it, making 0-voting more powerful, barely anyone pays attention to it, so there are an infinitesimally small number of views on submissions in comparison to the games and movies (which helps strengthen 0-voting even more), shit looping options, no download options for uploaders, there are too limited options for attributing roles to users, a bug that keeps beta testers from viewing the audio during the project management phase, unless set to allow for at least registered users to see it, various other bugs, etc.

The Audio Portal is begging for an update. Nonon demands an update.

Are forum replies and all the other feed items separate? Please tell me forum replies and other feed items are separate.

For that matter, I'm considering removing everyone from my friend list, I have about 140 friends and every 2 minutes I'm getting 10 new feed items, I can't deal with this, it's too much.

This system sounds great for people who don't use the forum, but for the people who are exclusively on newgrounds for the social interaction, this could really ruin a lot of the experience.

I think the update is great. I'll have to delete some people off of my feed who say a whole lotta nothing all the time, but now that this system is like RIGHT ON TOP OF IT, theres some people I genuinely want to keep up with whom I haven't added yet. I sincerely hope this system isn't taken away when its something we could all get used to and adapt to.
