well tom on the brittney spears progies they had them all over on that. another place where they had frames was right here. i had trouble trying to delete you message so i could write this. that was a pain in the ass. so i hope this helps you. by the way i kinda like the new way you have newgrounds but it was kinda better the old way. hope this helps.

TIP #1
DO NOT HAVE THE MUSIC AUTOMATICALLY TURN ON! Leave it optional.

TIP #2
Take down that Disorderly movie or at least make it smaller, I am getting so sick of his laggy crap that I want to blast his head with a virtual sniper rifle....
(Hmmmmmm....Assassin mission anyone?)

TIP #3
Option for low-res ads (optional)

If it aint broke, don't fix it. Who said that? I dunno. Anyway, lots of bugs that have already been mentioned, and I just like the old one better. It was absolutely perfect the way it was. Well, not perfect, but it was fine. So, either fix all these problems with the quickness, or give us back our old layout. I do like the fact that I can use the stop button on IE here now. In the old layout, it didn't do anything.

Or to satisfy the users who want it and the users who dont make it so that if you turn off the music then u change the page and come back that it stays changed cause it gets so goddamn annoying.Peace

ShadowWolf

Ya, how about user preferences. You have users, and portal. Why not have a few songs to choose or have none.. The the portal entrys can be set to automatically open..

I've always wanted to do that... I just try to avoid having more Flash on the page. Aw heck, I should do it anyway. :)

Ha, before I read your response, I had already done it... sorry...

Well i also think you should add the new portal submission Newgrounds Flash Logo instead of the logo in the top corner

Quality stuff, much improved over the frames. I agree with an earlier comment, make the music optional! It's cool stuff but annoying after going back to the homepage 4 or 5 times.

I think the no frames thing is great as long as the site runs faster. The other look was cooler though.

...The frontpage looks so... bland. I mean, with the buttons-sans-icon look, as opposed to the (current) red buttons look. And the hot content thing... I don't like it. But hey, NG gets changed more often than a soggy diaper. I guess I can get used to the new look.

Holy shit!!! I can finally shut that annoying loop off in the Portal whilst I wait for the pages to slowly load. Much, much better.

It might just be my computer...but sometimes when I go to the portal, a little bar goes on my list of programs open, but nothing shows up... I click it, nothing happens, I right click it, nothing comes up, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CLOSE AND IT RECENTLY SCREWED UP MY COMPUTER!!! The bar says "Cannot find server".

I believe that was the boobs ad. Somehow it was scripted so the only way you could close it was to click close this window. But, since it obviously can't find the link, you have no way to close it, except to push ctrl-alt-del and close it through there.

I found a frames link! If you click on other movies by this author, or movies by this author in a profile, it links to frames.

Sure it was complex, but how can we jump from the portal to the bbs and then to the cam page with out the frames at the bottom? I mean, you already had it all done, so why change it now?

Um, all the links are on the top of every page now... Webcam and Forums are all the way at the top.

The background colour of the portal being all black looks crappy, and what happend to the statistics page link on the portal?

I found a nice bug. First of all, you can't even see the links to stats, learn flash, complaints, and random portal entry, since the text and background are the same color.

The 1st and 3rd links give 404 errors. The 2nd one links to frames, and the 4th one works fine.

I have been getting way too fuck-in many internet explorer errors.

The upgrades are good as long as the site runs faster.

Also, I have that same damn bug

I love the fact that frames are gone, now when I direct link to a page my browser won't lock up. The basic layout is good, I like the way the logo is the same width as your columns, and the quick access pull down is a nice touch. 2 things I would change is the color... you need to incorporate the yellow some more in your menu area, because right now it doesn't appear like it's linked with the site, it looks like a giant banner ad. I would also move the very top buttons below your main buttons so they don't blend into the actual banner ad.

I found a thing you'll want to fix, and that is the NG Fan net icon that people can put on their sites, it's still launching a frames page.

Keep up the good work!

Like the new look. When I deposited my experience points they were logged but it gave me an error saying that I didn't type in my password or username (my points were still logged and I typed in both). That error page still has frames in it.

Other than that good job on freeing up pipe.

At first, it confused the shit out of me. I thought there was something wrong with my PC. Then I took a closer look, and found that you re-designed NG. Other than that, it looks fine.
