All I noticed was the new Alien Hominid ad.

Hey Tom, if you are still here.

Can you make Sign In buttom not in flash but html. Because when i click on it it thinks it's a pop-u and i can't see it.

why would it act differently if the button isn't flash? It'd call the url 'xact same way.

Because IE recognizes it as pop-up based on flash. But when i click on html based link that will open a new window it won't. Like when i watch movies on newgrounds it opens another windows easily.

And i don't like links in flash on site because i can't open them in new window. Flash is good for cartoons but i think it's not that good for websites.

Also what's up with this annoying duck in portal, i hate to go to other page to watch movie because that it makes sound. I mean that NES game based commercial with ducks and dog.

It's decent. Everything's easy tyo get to, and we still get cool cartoons.

You know, I haven't gone to the front page in almost a year now, maybe more? Having Firefox helps. A lot.

The singel BEST thing done to it since then? No more VG racer.. or whatever that was.

So yeah, congrats for that!

Tom, could you get rid of the "shoot the duck and win a DS" ad, it makes a sound that ruins the flash if you are on a viewpage.


That was a great post. Right Zach?
