My head is spinning, but I have finally manually updated over 150 series and collection pages to work with the new site layout.

They aren't all the prettiest conversions, although I have tidied up a lot of them. I am also struggling with a 160 pixel wide skyscraper ad which is messing up the table layout. All the other ads are 150 pixels or less. I'm trying to get the offending ad pulled from the rotation, because it's obnoxious. Be sure to click on those Adult Swim ads, though! ;)

If you see any glaring issues within the collections and series section, be sure to let me know!!!


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

Cool, thanks for the headups on that. I'm still stoked for the "add to a collection" feature. That will defnitely revolutionized Newgrounds.

You put more work into Newgrounds than is required by another website administrator. Congratulations Tom on making our life that much easier.

Do I get a free copy of AH for the kind compliments? ^-^

Four NG news in a row, wow. Congrats on your hard work, and which ad is the offending one?

I think I've noticed an error.
" One example is people who are especially disliked, such as Britney Spears and the Eminem"

Should that 'the' be in there?

That's in collections, by the way.

It's good to see that you're getting the other pages into the new layout. Instead of changing 2 or 3 pages then making a new layout a few weeks later and updating a few other pages and so on. Any idea when the "automated collection" system that has been mentioned before will be implemented?

Hmmmm...

I'm thinking about just deleting any posts where users say "FIRST POST!" from now on... Yeah, that sounds like a damn good idea.


The point is... Don't lose your dinosaur.

i guess your ugly buttons are final until next visual update... if there was one thing you could change about them it would be the shade of yello because it seems too be a totally different shade of yellow/oragne than ANY of its surrounding NG buttons and logos... the only yellow it seems similar with is that search button... if you could just tell Stamper to tweek the colors I think it might fit in better.

I like the reworked collections and series pages. Nice work Tom. Of course, I know it's more practicle but it would be cooler if it had a few more images, especially on the assasins page. I like the series(I think) one with the scrolling bar thing on top. That looks very nice. :)

ToM! I'm sorry for being a pain in the ass but I sent an email about those Transformer movies from when you asked people to give you a heads up on overlooked stuff and now that you got me to look back on the collections and there new layouts... I checked the Transformers collection and I really think it could use those 2 movies. You said right it it that you hope some people make more and I think they are really worth it.

:'( I know you guys are busy but I just want to make sure you remember these when you do add more stuff to the Transformer collection. Thanks!

great and all.... but you forgot to make an NG TT collection page!

its nearly impossible for us too continuously serch for all the TTs that we wanna watch... its much simpler if you were to just make a collection page with them all on it, that way we can just go and eb done with it

I'm using a global header and footer file, but due to the nature of the new layout, I had to manually implement it in the top and bottom of every page.

The LEGO Collection page isn't updated yet. :(

That is one section that needs new movies. Sofa King does not reflect any of the talent here on Newgrounds.

*Bitchy post off*

Great Job Tom for getting that done! It annoyed me how the site was so varied in Nav Bars.
