Many of you have already linked your Google+ accounts to NG with our new sign-up form but this post is to inform everyone that starting Monday, April 6th, Google+ login will become the ONLY way to log in to Newgrounds. Link your Google+ account now to avoid any disruption!

Beginning Monday you will also be represented on NG by your real name. Your userpage URL will remain the same but in all other places you will be referred to by first and last name rather than an alias. This is to encourage better behavior and more accountability among users.

You may also begin to notice context-sensitive ads. As part of our enhanced integration with Google+, we are finally getting access to run Adsense ads on NG and our YouTube channel.

Additionally, we will be integrating with Content ID to properly handle pirated music and video on Newgrounds. If you are part of a YouTube Network that enforces content ID on your work, it will likely be removed from NG as of Monday but our system will replace it with a redirect to the associated URL on YouTube.

These changes will seem a bit jarring but they finally address the harassment and piracy issues that have become too much for us to handle with such a small staff and volunteer moderators.

Some news everyone should like - our site search will continue to go to Google+ but will also include a preview dropdown of suggested searches!


Nightmare Cops, the game JohnnyUtah, Spazkid and I have been working on.

Is Google + supposed to be invisible until you highlight it?

Damn... I liked my username. Oh well, whatever, you bastards already know my first name anyway.

Curse you, @TomFulp and NG team, you hilariously vile human beings.

April Fools guys!

Exciting news! Can't wait to share it with all my circles!
...and squares.
...and triangles.
Not the octagons, though. Those guys've gotta stop in their tracks and rethink their lives.
