Happy New Years! 2005-01-03 12:51:19 Reply

Happy New Years everyone! I was in the Pocono's for the weekend, but I've just updated the front page with some of the great submissions we received.

We have a lot of big goals for NG throughout 2005... Some of them carried over from 2004. What do you think should be a Newgrounds goal for 2005?


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

Just keep it expanding like it is would seem like a great enough goal to me. Keep the traffic coming.

Happy new year, Tom. :)

A new goal? Hmm, get even more bigger. Maybe add some new features. Get Pico 2 done. Get as many out of NG and James as you can. ;)

Haha. Yeah, that would be really nice. How about if Stamper re-designed it? I think it would be great then. :)

Happy new year to you to Tom

I think we need some new games on newgrounds. 2004 seemed to focus around flash movies. I don't know if this is far-fetched, but maybe animators should concetrate more on games rather than animations. We seem to already have an abundant supply of those.

Hmmm....well Newgrounds is really established here. I remember back in '99 how in-complete and kinda messy Newgrounds looked. It was almost impossible to traverse the Portal without clicking on something that was complete crap. Now, Newgrounds has made a great step. Everything is nicer, neater, cooler, easier and sexier (I mean that loosly :) ).

Now for improvments....well I dunno. What really needs improving? What should Newgrounds add? Is something missing?

One of the things that i personally think is missing is Picco 2. I know you've been held up in AH Fulp/Tom, but could you give us grovelling peasants a glimpse of what is to become of Picco 2?

That's all i have for now. Currently, Newgrounds just looks perfect from my perspective.

I'd like to see the Audio Portal improved. Also it would be great if we could display our favourite audio submissions and authors in our profiles.

Yes Happy New Year. I got drunk and woke up in a closet so the year is looking to a great one.
I think some great things for newgrounds in 05 woud be some new levels to reach, and possibly some more differnet kinds of portal awards. New portal awards might get some more submissions in.

How about making some easter eggs in newgrounds? Maybe just few random eggs that are beeing randomly hidden in few pages, and they will lead you to a cool secret or seomthing.

But, since the issue is goals, i seppose its not time for improvements :D
So besides numbered goals (10,000,000 accounts... 400,000 submissions...), maybe this idea:
Doing a newgrounds 35 seconds TV commerical.
Now thats something i havent seen before! (well maybe there just arent some like that in Israel...)
Putting the best that NG has to offer all together! And might be at the end - "Rated E For Everyone"!

Ng isn't perfect Tom just needs to see where NG can go from here.

Pico 2... I know everyone's whining about it but i bet you traffic will go way up once you release it.

And find some way to continue using the NG Mag, you could do so much with it.

Happy New Years NG staff.

Changes made to the levels on NG. Add more or make it that there is not only one level 30. If things go on the same its going to take for ever to get from level 9 to 10.
