New Nav, Adult Swim! Aug. 3rd, 2004 @ 10:08 PM Reply

I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude to Adult Swim for running their ads on Newgrounds. Adult Swim is a perfect match for the NG audience, many of whom no doubt already tune in. If you haven't checked it out, Adult Swim is Saturday - Thursday, 11PM-5AM on the Cartoon Network!

This morning we launched a new navbar, designed by Stamper! You can see it here on the front page. The buttons are bigger and the adult ad is gone. YES, we have added a "mature" section (intermediate warning page soon to follow), where we intend to focus the remaining adult ads while the rest of the site is cleaned up within budget. Tonight I will be expanding the new nav across the site so that we only have THREE variations instead of FOUR... Over the next month we hope to drop that down to TWO variations at most... And eventually ONE FINAL NAV. This site is a pain in the ass to maintain.

These past few weeks in San Diego have been insane. I'll summarize it all once again!

1. We showcased the console version of Alien Hominid at Comic-con and it was a huge success. I have posted pictures!

2. Gamespot posted a glowing preview of Alien Hominid, as well as a video interview!

3. We launched a new version of the Alien Hominid website! Be sure to visit the site to gain a better understanding of what I've been working on for the past 14 months! :)

4. Jewls won our console contest and claimed her PS2!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I've never seen anything of Adult Swim, but I've heard so much. I suppose it's time to look into that. Definitely a good advertiser for this audience.

alright, after you have the site all straightened out. could you do me a favore?

have an option in our gold menu where we can decide on the old format (from last winter and before type deal) or on the new format of NG

because i seriously enjoyed the old format much better. i'm on 56k dude, and these multi layered things dont like to load as quickly as the old simpler pages did

kthnx ^_^

I like the new Navbar but I think the one before it was better. This one kind of gives Newgrounds, a retarded look, like the buttons need to be big to for our shallow and incomprhensiable minds to see them. I personally liked them small and clear, not big and flashy. Oh well, though. It's your site, not mine.

As for Adult Swim, yea it definitly fits NG. As for the rest, this has been a crazy Week for AH. It's finally coming alive!

I advise you to watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force. It has isntantly became one of my favorite toons. Along side South Park. I bought the first DVD, now I need the second.


I've been refurbished and reissued, prepackaged and precooked, decontaminated and deloused, but I still smell, sound, look and feel like shit.

New to the video game forums?

I will cheer the day that the entire site has a single nav bar, especially if it's this new one (snazzy)


The one thing force produces is resistance.

Man, I think the this nav bar is nowhere near as good as the old one. Just my opinion.

It's good to see your taking steps to become mainstream. Perhaps one day, they will use this site as a teaching aid in school where, and nobody can complain about the advertising content.
Just don't lose that vision that inspires all the fun and excitment that comes from whacking a seal.

I hate the new buttons they are horific. I think you guys should revert to the old ones except add the new buttons the same style as they were before cuz i love the new Ng store. Anyway all that bothers me is the really old design and the new crappy huge button stuff. Anyways the rest is awsome great work with the site.


OMG THATLOL!!

Wow the new bigger look is still weird to me, maybe cuz i'm not used to it, i didn't have much problem seeing it, but now i guess it's better there is less ads, and an adult section, and the magazine site is easy to spot, i never knew where it was before.

I don't really like the new nav bar. It just looks big and out of place. The new ads are good, though.

The idea to get Adult Swim to ad here is a good one. I saw that Habius Dorkus ad for the Harvey Birdman text adventure. Sounds intreguing. It's nice, because just about everybody watches Adult Swim here for one reason or another.


I suck.

This is amazing! All I watch on TV is Adult Swim and I'm thrilled to see that Newgrounds has made an arrangement with them. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would think that further collaboration between these 2 groups would be nothing short of spectacular.
