Yeah, we can't have the BBS go to shit! That's our #1 priority! YEAH RIGHT. Our #1 priority is giving our Flash artists as much exposure as possible. It's not "We have to have the most mature forum on the web!"
Oh, believe me I know. The BBS isn't much of a priority. It's an extra, for those of us that choose to use it. For the major portion of my NG life I chose not to use it myself.
But the portal being flooded with hentai game after hentai game as a result of all the kids on here hungry for porn, and things being over or undervoted based on who the author is and not the quality of the flash definately are problems.. Whether you see them as such or not.
If you didn't notice we get better quality entries now than we ever have. Sure we get a lot of crap, but we're getting more good things than we did in the past. I remember how you could wait a month for something really good, now good things come in daily.
Actually I hadn't noticed. Most of the things that come in daily, to be hailed as "good" are only "average" by old standards, there's just so much absolute garbage being submitted nowadays that standards have lowered. Most people don't even try anymore, they just submit whatever and as long as it has somewhat decent graphics and a filesize above 200KB it'll likely live because of n00bs wanting their protect points.
Though, to credit your statement we'd never have gotten amazing stuff like the Brackenwood films on old NG. So perhaps the price we pay for the lowered quality of the average submission.
