wdf? retrogade basically copied everysing piece of newgrounds and changed the colour and made it "photoshop". i would be pretty pissed off with them.
it is intersetin g to note the number of copycraps, i mean cats, out there. There has to be thousands of people who thought this was a cool idea and copied it. Now dont get me wrong, i was coming to this site long before i was a member, i mean, i was coming to this site since '97 and in the almost tens years since then this site is by far the best website i have seen that is not created by a major corperation. I would be so bold to say that this site in my opinion is seconded by only the BBC's news website.
Im apart of a few forum in other hobbies like warhammer 40k (yes, i have NO life) and every time some one says, "well, [newgrounds] didnt invent it" i point to your wikipedia artical. I then point out that wikipedia is as accurate, if not more so, then the encyclopedia britanica (true proven fact). Im making a lil portal like thing on my website (well, a movie section) and i put right there that i was inspired to make movies because of newgrounds. in some ways Newgrounds has changed the world, im sure if you think about it you can find one.

Flash Portal Dot Com -Not even other pages to categorize the flashes. They even copyrighted the portal o.O
hmmm, if you ask me you should find out when they started up, and point out that they cant copy right that which was created before they.
I have seen a few copycats but when compared to Newgounds they are small and usually pathetic. I'm not saying they're are complete crap but still most things are stolen or not NG quality. The Portal is more than just a place where you play games and watch cartoons, it's a gathering of opinions, veiws, geniuses, and shit loads of violence and swears, and boobs :) Everyone else is trying to capyure the uncatchable the Newgrounds sprit. NG4Life MOTHERFUCKERS!
tom man u and jess are heros and don'tt forget it
hey hey hey this is the j to the a to the r,r to the m to the o to the m to the e JERROME
ROME AT BUILT IN A DAY PM ME
yes im low leveled but ive been here since 2005 i think? yeah i think so anyways this is the best portal ive seen and ever will see this is the about 10th most lookes at website ever made the rest being other games sites and news ones so yeah ill just be quiet and let you all show your support PLEASE??
This may have been asked, but I didn't feel like going through 15 pages of "W00t Tom," but is albinoblacksheep concidered a copycat site, because they have a community (like NG), but it's their own.
I personally love that site, and will submit my flash to both sites with a different preloader. Would that make you guys mad? The creator of ABS didn't care at all.
Wow... I'm the first one to read this in 4 years... I guess I love NG... It is pretty FUCKIN' lame that all those posers copied NG!!!!! Tom you can at least take solice in this: Flipsided is now a credit-card site, and NG may get coppied but, its still got one of the biggest portals on the web, and alot of the best artist out there recognize NG as King & may go to those other sites just to get there work on a site, but they usually submit their flash to NG when hey want a fan-base. THAT'S someting those other sites can't say
you mean like kongregate, and shit like that?
NG is the one and only, and nobody can top it. NOBODY
at least not until tom, wade, and ng dies, but tom and wade is a god

I always wished that NG would take over the internet, just as you describe, absorbing smaller portals a first, so then Tom and his Faithful Staff develope... The Portal Portal... Each Portal must pass judgement, and the content is rated by
Effective use of NG's HTML
Stolen Flash from NG
Portal's Staff has gone through identity changes and plastic surgeries to look EXACTLY like the NG Crew in their current form.
If a portal fails judgment the staff is publicly executed by Top and April wearing Barbaric Attire using heavy Wood Splitters.
When a portal passes judgement it must ALWAYS strive to stay above 30% lest they share the fate of failures.
If a portal manages to keep a rating of +95% for a week they are given amnesty the first time they are reduced below 30%.
However if a portal's rating is at 100% for more than one month they are under investigation for "cheating" the system, and fraudulent ratings.
Execution for this crime is handled by Wade Fulp and 4 of his clones, which have been given growth hormones and horse steroids. Then they are beat to death with wet leather strips about an inch wide and two feet long.
That would be completely fucking glorious.
On another serious note, Newgrounds has always been the only site I go to for Flash. And Tom and his Staff have my utmost respect or everything they have done with the site, what they have done is truly commendable and I am simply awe struck. I am doomed if I ever meet Tom or the NG staff, as I imagine it would be like a mere mortal meeting his (her) creator. I am no mere mortal, but meeting Tom and the Staff would surely cause instant, and violent death. But really that'd be fucking Pro.
Hey Tom; don't mean to potentially throw more on the servers than you've already heard, but I read your post and I figured I'd put my two cents' worth in.
I don't think this whole "Flash portal war," if I can call it that, is about which site is the best and which one deserves to "dominate" (though I'd personally vote Newgrounds.com anyway :-P). It's about who came up with the original ideas. You and Wade and all the people at the office implemented the idea of a compact, automated file submission, rating, and management system at a time when DSL Internet service was either unheard of or revered as some kind of ... well ... you remember how much dial-up sucks and that's what's important. Newgrounds was the first.
The notion can't be avoided that someday someone might come up with a better or simpler or more cost-effective way of doing things and put Newgrounds, in one sense or another, out of business. This site is a business, and Pennsylvania's part of one of the world's largest capitalist nations. But Newgrounds will always have been the first. I firmly believe that this site will go down in history books as part of the history of the Internet as one of the pioneering forces in free, sometimes politically incorrect online entertainment (if that hasn't already taken place).
And the important part is that you all keep pushing at it, trying to find ways to make it better, and all after it made its debut on the WWW thirteen years ago. How many Flash sites have been pushing the boundaries, either with technology or with their contributors - programmers and artists alike - for thirteen years? How many websites have even lasted thirteen years?
I may only say this because I've never written anything in HTML beyond the tags for various typefaces, but the Flash Portal is a work of genius, especially considering the foresight one might require to implement it just before the turn of the millenium, just before making content became part of a worldwide popularity contest (at least to some). And I'm not sucking up 2 teh innertente mazterzes. I may work hard at politeness but I'm not sucking up to anyone here. And on that note I should stop this rambling. I didn't know my post would exceed more than three sentences, but you get on a train of thought and you know how it goes...
Anyway, thanks for going at it with this site for two-thirds as long as I've lived. I hope I haven't bored you, and I apologize if I have.
Maybe I am a suck-up :-P.
So what exactly did you mean?
Do you want credit for your work or you just want people to stop copying this site?
Youtube is SAD. Seriously. It has movies pouring in from everywhere. 90% of which is crap. So many things are stolen, and most of them are from here. It is sad.
