Tom, you should make the porn ads only appear on movie pages with mild to excessive adult content and/or nudity. I really don't want porn ads on my movie pages since I don't do anything with nudity in it but usually have alot of gore in some of my movies (especially my That Halo Parody series)

My newest that halo parody episode has alof of porn ads because I have mild textual and audio language and excessive violence :( That Halo Parody has nothing to do with nudity :(

anyways, I hope you can do that :)

I suggest adding the rating number after the submission in the Portal so people know what they are clicking.

Ideally, you would have a rememberable filtering system, so you could just see all recent submissions with such and such rating (as well as other factors, like score and game/movie).

As well, you still have adult ads on the Portal page itself. I understand the budget problem, but isn't that undermining the recent move?

It's all gradual... We'll get to the main Portal page (it's being redesigned). We also plan to add ratings to that page, and hopefully the front page.


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

Hey Tom, something wrong with NG at my PC...
Im seeing everything like it has bugs and all, i dunno how to explain...
Even the flash in the portal page is with 32 colors only....
Why is that?

Yes! I think it's a great idea, Tom. It surprised me when I saw Metal Gear Fiesta on the front page a while ago because I had reviewed that movie weeks before hand! I knew you started to take a look back.

OH! There's a cool author, powermasterprime who did a couple of Transformers movies that should be given some recognition. I mean he submitted them like 3 or 4 months ago but I think they atleast deserve to be put in the Transformers section. Maybe I'll Email you if that will help! >:)

yeah, theres alot of good stuff out there. alot gets overlooked because its and others first submission or they have a low batting average, so its assumed to be crap.

NG will always be too edgy ...being too violent and edgy. ... We'll always be edgy,

Yes, I understand, but I have just one question.

Will you still be edgy?

I saw Minusha Chapter 1.. or whatever it was called when it first came into the portal.. The score was 3.24.. This work was proffesional, so a thread was made, an email sent to Tom, and it got front page. IT is UNBELIEVABLE how people can overlook and vote low on some of the best content ever. The original Salad Fingers had the surpisingly low score of 2.47. I was in disbelief that such an original peice of work would be some underated. Luckily liljim noticed it too, and made a topic, there for leading to what became an instant classic with the Newgrounds Community.

Thank you Tom for noticing the hidden Jems in the portal and giving them their proper attention. It is about time talented flash artists got their share of attention.

Yo Krossroads why the hell is your submission so low. That was some funny shit, even though the animation was crappy at times, it was pretty damn funny. I voted 5.

My question is, how do you get a flash in the Adult Section? Or are only dress up games and porn allowed?

The only explanation that I could come up with is that besides the fact that I was marked as, and still am, new, I also had in the comments: "It's not finished....." So all those people who just vote with out viewing must have just clicked 0 asmuing it would be bad.

Because my review score avg. is 9.00, that shows somethings wrong.

btw, how do you get a collection thing? Most people who know my stuff generally know me from either That Halo Parody or my audio. I dunno about you but it'd be sweet to have a collection button and page for my That Halo Parody series. It probably won't happen till I get a daily feature, so that's y #4 is going to be an intense fight scene with humor in...whoops. lol

I think if companies like Capcom would want to advertise something like Viewtiful joe, we would have to show a much cleaner front page. That means no more Orgasm girls or Love Hinas. How would a giant company look if they adveritsed on the same place that has Hentai? Not very good. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see some stuff like that on the banners, VJ was one of my favourite games of 2003.

Now that were talking about underrated games, this one was excellent.

this is just an idea, but its kind of a response to what the last guy wrote;
what if there were three front pages?
one could be all good submissions that are appropriate for everyone, one would have only mature submissions or hentai or just extremely bloody submissions, and one would have both, and you could choose which one you want to see from your grounds gold account.
just a suggestion, i hope you guys do this though, because then it would be safer to log on NG from school/work.

SHUSH! They want to clean the site up, don't try and convince them otherwise!

I'd rather see ads for movies and cool gadgets, rather than porn sites and the like.

okay, well, imagine if you were of age to watch it. THEN, imagine that you were a father and your kid saw it.

Silly Bummy!

Good move, Tom
