I think that the in look is incredable! I've always enjoyed red and black as a color scheme; gives it that, cool, clam, yet bad-ass look. Which is perfect for Newgrounds! That, and it'll help people get their minds off of the happenings around the world, ya' know, clam down hot tempers. . . just my opinion though. So yeah, looks great. . .

Right now there are a few things that still need to be fixed - the USER RANKINGS will still pop up in frames until Ross changes some scripts. Most of the site should be working, though. Let me know if you click on ANY links ANYWHERE that bring up the frames. I want to eliminate them completely! :)

So.... What does everyone think of the new look? Any suggestions?

looks realy cool but the ng logs to big!!!
and the butons should be yellow!!!

The new look is cool. The 'Leave a message' feature on secret items menu doesn't work anymore, though :-(

Alright, I'd say the site does have a little bit of a cleaner feel to it... can't tell if it's running faster or not but time will tell... the new music sux sux sux sux sux sux sux sux sux why? The new frontend music was bad enough now this new portal music that's just NOT good, that's my only beef except I agree with some other guys that if you're going to do an "overhaul" you should do something that looks like it took more than 2 seconds. And change the fucking music back ugh ugh ugh the only guys who are going to like that will be 14 years old. You want advertising bucks? At least give the site some semblance of being professional... no 14 year olds music. That's my rant.

I don't like it. I hate it. I think the best layout was before that yellow came. Just my oppinion.

I clicked on a movie through someone profile (under their favourites) and it came up in frames!

Oh and could you make it so we can choose out favourite movies?

Yeah its heaps faster now which is definatly good.
But one thing i think is just there are a few errors with the clour scheme n stuff.

The NG Tank logo is way to big and the old buttons (yes i noticed them) dont really look zany NG enough.

I say make thoose buttons yellow and shrink the logo and put something else there to fill the space.

But hey im just saying what im thinking no harm intended good work though really good stuff!!!1

I love it. My favorite part is the "stop music" on the portal page. Maybe you could make the music default to the user's prefrence? Like in the user's prefrences, he can select where he wants them to default on or off. Just a suggestion. It's fine as it is though. I, too, am noticing faster load times which I am quite thankful for. Also, maybe the non-frames will fix the old problem of clicking "back" and sometimes getting

http://www.newgrounds.com/ngad.html

instead of the previous page. Good job.

I think the no frames move was a good thing... but the site seems a little slower at the moment then it did with frames... maybe there is heavy traffic at the moment... good work anyhows

Maybe its just me but I really think that the ads are too big. It takes away from the Newgrounds experience. I see enough commercials on T.V. so I really hate it when half a site is devoted to them, but hey they rake in the money right?

Erm, I don't like how big the newgrounds.com logo is. The nav should be changed..and made smaller along with the top logo.

The US is gonna be more powerful then ever now. We'll have polic & shit on planes so this will never happen again. And Bush (who i don't like but i happen 2 agree w/ him on this) made a part of the cabinet to stop people like Bin Laden from doing this again. We'll get Bin Laden & he'll be sorry he even would dare to attack the US. We must join together against the jackass.
