Yeah i know what you mean. But i don't blame them either for doing it because NewGrounds' system is legendary. I to am working a flash site thats Called FlashGrounds (sorry it sounds good, if you can think a better one for me I will use it) and it's all created in flash and having a os style to it, its pretty kool.

i would never see any other flash portal as anything other than a ripoff of Newgrounds.

it's the only place i'll ever showcase my flash. it's the only site i'd ever choose to give someone who wants to show his/her work.

it's one of the few sites i visit regularly, and the best i've ever been to for people to express themselves.

for that, it deserves more credit than any other site on the internet.

the fact that it's the first and the best makes it all the better.

long live Newgrounds.

Jesus, flipsidedcom, come up with your own ideas, not rip them off someone else. You say you "borrowed" script. BULLSHIT. More like copied and stolen, I mean, fuck, you even have the same scoring system and points! And the worst thing is, you didn't put that measly little "Inspired by Newgrounds.com" down the bottom of the page until people started to kick up about it! You probably weren't even going to put it up at all if noone said anything about it. It's people like you that make great sites fade away into the croud. Come up with your own goddamn ideas, that's what made NG and albinoblacksheep so great. Asshole.

Wow- up until I read this, I didn't know any other portals existed.
But that doesn't change anything- I love this site and it's the only one I'll ever go to. I tip my hat to everyone that helped make this site so great... AWESOME JOB!
That flipsided one is an obvious rip off of ng.

yeah don't get me wrong i like newgrounds but...
People shouldn't be flaming every other copycat. ooh he made it exactly like NG! he's an asshole. god i haven't been on many sites but lots of them are made by 16 year olds. plus they are just a kids thing. A exact copy fanboy site. not a site trying to make a million.

I only came across NG about 4 months ago, even though I've been making flash toons and games for over 4 years. Nothing touches it as far as I'm concerned for getting my work seen and getting feedback. I've been totally inspired by the simple fact that when I now make a game or Toon, I immediatley have a ready and waiting audience. NG is simply the best gig in town.

On the down side, the audience is "of a particular type" and if I knew of other portals which had a differnet audience I'd be happy to show my work there too.

People will always steal your ideas, that's why you have to come up with more...

Recently I checked Flipsided.com for any news or anything and luckily their was...my friend (Not VideogameHeaven) but Phill Colins had taken over Flipsided (Deleted everything in the portal) this is an extract he said to me;
'I hate those mother fuckers let them suffer with no Portal...it serves them right to copy Newgrounds!'
Well he is going to delete anything that goes onto Flipsided now and I don't know what their going to do I hope this information has been interesting to some and to check the portal by clicking here ---------> Flipsided Portal

Also if you scroll up through the posts, everyone has under 5 posts. It may be just a coincidence though.

Guys!Ignore them!By putting links to NG on every page,FS is burning itself up!Newbs who go to flipside think,"Hey this site is pretty cool," then they see the link to newgrounds.When they click on it,they're like,"Whoa!This site is way better!" and NG constantly keeps getting new members like this!Although the adult ads don't help our image very much...

Ha! Like anything could even match NG... you've only got to look at it to know it is the one and only, original Flash portal.

I never came across another 'portal'. On the other hand, I neer really searched for one, I saw newgrounds first and I see/saw no reason to go to another site. it's a shame that such copy's exist, but I don't think that it makes newgrounds look less good.

In my opinion if you get your flash blammed on newgrounds, submit it to one of these copycat sites. That way your flash stil gets to be seen by people, and the standards of the copycat sites become way lower than the high standards here at newgrounds... therefore ensuring that newgrounds remains the best darn flash portal on the internet.

I know you hate copycats. I hate them too. It's even more of a low blow to copy the html code of the automated flash portal in two seconds when it took you guys [Newgrounds] countless hours, days, possibly months.

Yeah... I've seen them all. It's kind of sad.
Flash Portal Dot Com -Not even other pages to categorize the flashes. They even copyrighted the portal o.O

TxMafia -They have a bootleg portal with a slogan reading: "We make stealing fun!" They actually link to MindChamber but not NG.
enPop -Actually i dont really know if this is a portal but it looks like it.

Theres a lot more but im too lazy to post them. (or i just plain fergot their names.)
