Hmm, not sure what the requirements are. I think Tom just needs to like it.

Take Numa Numa for example. It hasn't any award, but it is just fun, so it get's on the frontpage. I just think Tom needs to like it, before getting on the frontpage. :)

Well, after getting Flash, the first requirement for a Front page quality flash is quality. :P GOOD drawings, sprites and maybe something else are one of the main things for quality. The next thing is using sound correctly and then there's making quite a long flash. Atleast five minutes would be good enough. Also, make sure your flash has got a very good storyline. Humour, violence or something very interesting to possibly make your flash to get on front page, but it depends if Tom finds it good enough.

Mainly, Tom has to like it, but also, if a flash brings a lot of traffic to the site, it'll get on the front page. I think that's why Numa is still on there, because of mass appeal. That's why stuff like Drag Racer from a while back stayed on the Front Page so much, if memory serves

And don't forget the Oklahama City game. That got traffic, because it got on the news. Naughty Bedn.

Yes don't cut corners, also they perfer ones with portal icons too.
Tom usually checks out the Daily Top Five, so if you get one of theose spots it also helps. Not all front page stuff has been part of a daily part 5, but a high majority of it.

Not true at all.
It's not just all logical like, good graphics = good, and put them all together and it will just work. All you need is to be able to entertain someone for a few minutes, make it work, and that doesn't nessisarily mean having a good story or graphics.

And what did you expect people to tell you, excactly how to get on the front page? How to make something that works in a forum post? That's retarded.

For petes sake, will everyone stop using this stupid statment? You dont' have to make flash to tell if it is front page matirial or not.

For a good amount of the part, that is true, some cases graphics make the flash. Of course, artists who've had front page submissions will more than likely front page again than someone else. :/ But then there are cases like with the Numa Numa bit. No real skill, but front page. Or if it brings up enough controvesy[spelling],it could get front page, like Joshs' flash.

Well, in his case it does, he thinks a good cartoon or game comes down to logic, like "good graphics, good story, MUST go for 5 minutes" If people focused on just meeting that it would suck.

Sweeeet. I got on the front page once.

Having a Flash with a Daily or even Weekly award is always good, or just having an 'awesome' score, IWO 3.50/5.00 or more. All of these things will highlight the submission and make it more likely to be noticed by Tom.

*rolls eyes*

Just because someone has no Flash doesn't mean they lack the ability to judge. It's like saying a movie critic can't talk because he's never made a film before.
