Well, I'm depositing from now on ^^

Wait a second. I thought it was for voting, not for submitting. Huh. Am I wrong, with this (possibly stupid) assumption??

Brush up on your NG terms buddy. Depositing is voting.

Websites wider than 800x600 are terrible.

That means that many people who visit the site have to scroll left and right.

And nobody likes that.

Keep the site the way it is. There's no reason to make it wider just because some people use 1024. They can see it fine, but if you widen the site for them, people like me won't be able to.

The announcement of "Cash for Flash" has raised some questions about prizes for non-artists. I decided that although I gave up on the console contest, I could just send a check out each month to a random voter. I decided on $100 to get things started.

Yay thats really cool of you to give 100$ I hope i win cuz i need sum dough ....anyways thnks for leaving the site 800x600 i was kinda scaredd there for a second thinking that there would be no more newgrounds !!

You crazy bitch, Tom.

The prizes are a great idea, and I like how you're letting the experienced users with higher rankings the opportunity to decide. Not only that, but it gives more people the incentive to B/P and to deposit; it's a much larger knock-on effect that I first thought.

Well, any prize is fine by me. I'll continue to come here if I win or not.

Congratulations to the contest winner, too.

RoFL, it should go to a regular user, or just draw a name out of a hat.

I'll still deposit anyways.

I am a religous depositor.

What will James come up with next? Sounds awesome, can't wait!

You really are generous! I should be paying you for letting me post submissions and to view other submissions! Another great idea, although I feel that there should be some more requirments to recieve this monthly random voter prize. Oh well. Great idea!

It's not about the requirements being high, it's about them being low so that more users have the ability to enter. You don't see some sort of in depth problem to solve under a pepsi cap.

That's cool that we can get money for just depositing. There's no cheating even possible there... except alternate accounts and stuff, but that'd only give you like a 2 in 686,000 chance of winning. Cool. So, I still have a chance at winning money even if my videos suck! YAY!


I suck.

Even though many people have said this site has changed so much and is now lame and more "politically correct", I still think of it as the most unique place on the internet. One single person giving away money just because he can, to someone RANDOM, is just great. Hope everything goes along fine with all this charity. Go Tom!

If I remember rightly, there is a safeguard against that- they just trace your IP.

I'm just going on the fact that 3,650 will be a years worth of deposits [if the user opted out of the P-bot emails] and currently 3,650 exp is mid way through level twelve. Naturally, it's prone to change because the level 30 user will increase the requirements needed for that level.

But currently, a years worth of deposits is level 12.

I didn't mean like a lot of experience or anything. Just that someone who may have voted for a friends crappy entery when they called up and that is the only thing they ever voted for or something doesn't end up with a hundred bucks. Well, I guess this couldn't happen because they would need an account, but they should give it to someone who rarely visits newgrounds and has deposited like, once or twice.

What about minors? I know you cant get the 250 for your flash if you are a minor, is it the same thing for the random 100$ prize as well?

The checks are actually more complex than just total # of experience points. :)
