I remember similar promises at the beginning of last year, so finishing those projects should be a goal :)

*cough* Dynamic series/collections system *cough*

What ever happened to the post where he'd promise all of the things that would be on NG in 2004? What about that thing where authors could update there own series page.

I agree. They should also get rid of those annoying automatic pop-ups. They should stop doing those Hentai and Porn banners and should advertise videogames.

I see a big future for Newgrounds where there is a Newgrounds magazine every month and a Newgrounds channel!!!

Offcourse this will be when all the Newgrounds staff are dead and their brains are in jars controlling Newgrounds with their minds and the year will be 2090!!!

I think a big improvement would be to add a viewer like on launchcast, ive spent most of today trying to code on for my site.

What it does is play flash that you should like by looking how you vote and how people with similar voting patterns vote. That way the movies that go past the latest 50 and dont get onto the top 50 wont be lost and never viewed again.

I think Ive suggested this before im not sure, but I think it would be a really good feature

Get rid of all the porn ads... IN FACT, all the ads would be nice.

By the ads i mean the banners these are not harmful as long as they are not porn. Doing videogame banners will make newgrounds more money so it can help it fulfill the users suggestions in this discussion.

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?

I would say a better audio portal, I've had many problems with uploading acceptable music, and more trouble finding it once I've uploaded it.

(I know I can veiw it from my profile, I mean I couldn't find it under the catagory)

There should be awards for getting front page. Also, there should be an award for getting number one of all time for one week in a row, then 2 weeks, then 3 weeks, and so one. Also, ther should be personal messages users can send to other users as an alternative to emailing or AIM.

Some Ideas of Mine (and others)

Update the games gallery... THere are many good games that aren't there yet.

Propose a LoTR collection of NG stuff.

Can we add in more levels? Maybe go up to 50 levels or something... it takes months to go up a single level these days.

More Portal awards--perhaps a most viewed award, or a front page award, a "blue ribbon award" for an average of over 4.50 for a day, and a another turd award for an average of 1.00 per day.


After three Years, BlueMax returns!
Yay!

You two seem to have different memories to me - I don't recall Tom ever making any promises about that stuff. Just hints that they were what we were aiming to achieve. Goals and aims shift according to other workload. Not a difficult concept to grasp.

Alternatively, this could happen when you're funding the site in every aspect.

What should be the goal for newgrounds for 2005?

Well, same as always Pinky.. To try and take over the world...

...errr?

Nah seriously, keep up the fast servers, maybe make a different section where people can upload other stuff besides flash.... i dont know. I think this site is close to perfect anyway. Oh yeh, reduce popups!

I think the ng message system is a good idea like bbs you could call it like nms or something like where people can communicate within newgrounds if their working on flash or chatting or whatever. Also the different color auras sound tempting.

PICO 2! Pico 2! Pico 2!

I can't believe you missed the "Year of the Sequel", 2004, for Pico 2! So I think you should get Pico 2 done. Also, I would like to see the ablility to make "series" pages yourself for your own movies. It wouldn't be placed on the Series page, but it would allow people to put their series on on page despite the fact they arn't really popular yet. Maybe make it so only people with, say, 2 or 3 submissions over 3.00 on there score. Also, the audio portal could get a facelift, maybe make it a whole new site that works like Newgrounds but for music! I would also support apointing Portal moderators who can change the rating system to make it more accurate, because many people do not know what consitutes violence, bad language, and sexual content.

I nominate myself, being a hero of good grammer and good taste.

Here are the goals i believe should be in store for newgrounds in 2005.

1.) Change the layout of the profiles and the other pages on newgrounds so that they are one design.

2.) Add more levels... have it go up to about 50 levels.

3.) change the part in the NG profiles that says... "favorite flash movies" to "favorite flash content" because it can be either a movie or a game.
WAIT A SECOND.... i just talked to liljim about this and he fixed it to this. w00t.

4.) Pico 2 for the PS2??? (make it 3D)

5.) More ways to increase Voting Power.

I'd still like the 2 things I asked for last year - being able to preview your posts on the bbs (very practical when using code) and more e-mails.

I'd like to be able to select from a large number of options - being sent notifications of new reviews for my submissions, being sent new responses, being notified when a favourite author submits something (after it's survived of course)...

These would be really useful to myself and - I'm sure - others and would also surely help foster the community spirit.

Obviously Pico 2 would be good and I sorta expect it this year from what you've said. I have high hopes.

Allowing us to select our favourite audio tracks and audio authors is a nice idea and may help the audio portal get a bit more recognition.

It would be nice to finally finish the gradual revamp of the site. (The BBS search screen still has the very old style for example).

I really don't understand why the info (size, rating, author and score) don't pop up for stuff in the 2 right-hand columns in the portal and feel it'd be nice if that happened.

Overall though, I was really impressed with all the stuff that '04 brought - the mag, the beta portal, the icons representing game/animations (my favourite addition possibly), almost total redesign... I think a good goal would simply be to at least match last year in terms of advancement.

Happy newyear NG!!
Lets make it easier to get to higher levels. 855 experiance points is a lil too hardcore for that transition from 9 to 10.
Besides that this website had been kick ass. Let bring back scrotum the puppy. I miss him...

Well its about damn time! I was wondering when marios mistake was getting up there :P. A newgrounds goal? hmm well...It would be cool if you could update the Final fantasy collections ( hint hint lol jk) Umm..well it would be cool if there was a top 50 of all time where movies that have been in the top 50 for over a year go into that, and are kept there unless they are replaced..but thats not my idea...some other guys...other than that...keep on truckin!

Oh James. No need to get defensive now, I know how much work goes into writing the backend of just a small site, I can only imagine how much of a pain in the ass coding a monster such as NG must be... Especially for one person.

That said, there's a fine line between a promise and a hint. While Tom never did directly promise the dynamic series system for 2004, as I remember he certainly did imply that it was a pretty big priority at the beginning of last year.

I'm eager to see what you come up with in 05 :)

There are 3 things that I have wanted on this site for a very long time.
1) More secrets in the secrets menu
2) The Add to Collection button to begin working
3) One of my movies being placed on the Front Page

If these things happened I think myself, and many other hundreds of thousands of NG fans would be happy.
