Yup, that's him! He's really my grandfather's brother's son, so not exactly an uncle - I don't know what to call him. But he's family!

I remember when it went from 200 to 300, and now it's going to 400. Awesome. With faster Portal downloads, people with 56k modems won't have to wait so long for huge Flashes to load.
Good job Tom.

We were planning to hold off on our hardware upgrades until mid-September, but we are bumping up the launch of our new file server to this week! The remainder of the upgrades will still take place in September.

I'm just gonna pretend I understood all the technicalities of this, smile and nod, encouragingly.

Yay for Tom!

If I'm correct then that would be your 2nd cousin, i'm pretty sure, because ur mom or dad on that side would be cousins and you would be his 2nd cousin...

Tom,

I know the subject line is "Bandwidth Upgrade", but I noticed the little "Earthbound collection" tag.

I'm seeing some pretty good Batman work going on here...

Is there going to be a "Batman' collection?

Hey Tom: With the bandwidth upgrades, the site upgrades, etc. do you think it wuld be a good idea to implement some sort of system that allows users to automatically showcase their work on a page, much like the Series pages that you guys do yourselves?

Perhaps only after approved by the admins, this would take some of the work away from your guys and allow the site to have more complete listings for general browsing. Implementing this in PHP wouldn't be hard, and if the server load/bandwidth allows for it, it might be a nice addition to NG :-)

Awesome. Does this mean bigger picture files too? Probably not. That's still good news.

Okay, so lets just hope this helps filter out the the crap on the portal, and hopefully the forums will go a little faster.

Thankyou tom.

Newgrounds needs a better system somehow. Almost everyone knows about SevenStar and the StarSyndicate... And their submissions is real crap! Take a look at Earthbound or TMNM that they have made. I can not understand how they, this minor miority, gets so many votes! It is just as it was with the nazi partie when the German citizens did not dare to stop them. We have to stop the StarSyndicate! Take a look at their submission and then honestly say that the flashs they made are good.

I want Newgrounds to do something about this. Something has to be done. Or soon, the whole Newgrounds will be known as a place there you can put in flashs even if it‘s just a blank screen. Those kind of web site does not get a good repetation.

I just want you to think about it...

But. I am not that kind of person that thinks that a bad flash artist most be banned. No I belive that you on Newgrounds will find out a new way to do something about those submissions...

One way to make the voting system better is that you can not vote at the same submission with the same profile next day. Only one vote per profile is good...

Thank you for taking time!
