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

Newgrounds has a "M" rating all over it anyways. It's just the way the site is, and adding yet another warning screen won't change anything. The vast majority of the NG visitors are either of appropriate age, or their parents don't give a shit (or don't know about them) browsing the site.

And seriously I think this whole "adult" hype is waaaay overblown. Especially the fact that sexual-oriented content is somewhy way more "alarming" then their violent counterpart. Blood, gore, spilling guts, screams, agony, demons - that's all fine within the T/M rating, but as soon as you get anything REMOTE to sex then its AO...

I don't know about you, but if I was a father, I'd rather see my kid watch hentai then blow people's bloody guts out with a chainsaw...

I swear, when my band makes it big, my first pay check goes to Tom Fulp cause he is a LEGEND!!! It's a hard job wading through the crap entry's every day but someone's gotta do it! And I ain't one of em! (note my exp level). And so what if there is some porn ads? If it pays the bills and keeps newgrounds from phasing away... I can deal with it!

Killing Spree V is one that I personally had overlooked in the past, but it was brought to my attention by Zonox. Dog vs. Satan is one I just happened to stumble across. I couldn't believe it had been completely overlooked!

The front page was pretty good! Killing Spree V was indeed overlooked, but Dog vs. Satan, although an original concept just had too many downsides to get front page, but hopefully the next from that other will be better.

If you enjoy works such as Salad Fingers, Mr. Happy and Dog vs. Satan (all of which were on the brink of obscurity at one point) and you feel there is something that is being ignored, don't hesitate to email me! With 200 submissions per day, I know we are overlooking a lot of really great stuff. We gotta stop doing that! :)

Hehe, I love Salad Fingers, and Mr. Happy Face was just hilarious. Thanks for reviving those from obscurity. I was actually thinking about e-mailing you about an author called JenadaeX, who has three GREAT but unnoticed flash. Also, I liked that you brought the 100 Omake to the front page, I was thinking that it would be forgotten for sure (4th and 5th place don't get you much attention).

In other news... You will notice that all Portal submissions with ratings less than "18+" now contain only clean advertisements. Authors who produce clean content no longer have to worry about sharing the page with adult ads, and viewers who only watch clean content no longer have to worry about adult ads appearing on their screen (at least, not on those pages). It's a tough balance to maintain the NG budget and minimize the adult ads, but we're taking it step by step!

That's nice to here, no one wants to see XXX HENTAI banners all across their screen while trying to watch Mario. Once we find some good sponsers we may be able to block those evil hentai ads forever.

Be sure to support NG advertisers whenever possible - the better support they receive, the better quality our ads can become, making NG more pleasant to browse! When you see a good looking ad for a video game or movie, take a look at what they have to say on their website! It would be a better world at NG if we could promote cool stuff like Viewtiful Joe and Kill Bill rather than spyware removers and blinking desktop icons.

I really don't check their sites because, half of the time they are acvertising things that I really see no intrest in, well one step at a time I guess.

I think you should worry less about porn ads and more about ads with audio. That "Without A Paddle" one get's really irritating as well as that flash voice thingy.


I suck.

Yes there are a ton of great submissions. The ads don't really bother me. But I do click the newer ads more than the others which i never clicked.

There is no shame in advertising. I think the clean portal page was a great improvement, and very clever. I don't like it though however, when people complain about some banners. If it was not for advertising, information would not be passed from sellers to buyers, and vice-versa.

Well, it sort of helps for all the 17 and below kids and teens to not see porn shit, because this world is corrupted with sex and violence everywhere.

I just wanted to say, that Newgrounds has become very protective of it's viewers now. Before it was like, submit shit to Assasin and no one gives a damn. Now it's like, 18+ I cant watch that! I'll get in trouble. Porn, violence, polotics. They all go together, and you have to live with em. Let you're damn kids watch anything they want. They'll grow up faster and not turn out like the protective bastards that you, their parents became. Thanks to Tony_Montana for inspiration.

nice idea, very nice, but personally i feel the porn ads arnt a problem, i mean, if your parents happen to see it, just explain its a pop up and u cant help it appearing when your on the site etc etc. im sure any understanding parent would be cool with it if you explained it properly,i mean, if u try to hide it, and act like your up to no good, thats when they get angry. just a thought..

Thats good, the presence of porn ads is kind of annoying occasionally you would accidently click on them (with your mom in the room) so uh yeah- im glad they're gone, and I'll clikcon the clean ads more often to support you guys.

It'd clutter up too much space and waste bandwidth, we really need to replace those Ifilms and Series that take up 4 slots that should be used to showcase movies from new under-rated artists. But since I-films is a sponser we probably have to keep them. And Tom could at least rotate the series!!!

Thats great news!

All my friends were like "Dude, why are you always on Newgrounds? Its full of porn pop ups and stupid hentai banners."
Now they have no reasons for not coming here!

Anywho,me and my friends will try to explore your recent sponsors and stuff, so then we can get some kickass banners. (Not saying that we dont have sweet banners. GO ALIEN HOMINID!)
