Tom, if you had done a full out redesign I would have possibly not thought of it as an April Fools joke, but this was too easy.
You better fool us better next year, fool!
Don't ever, ever scare me like that again!
I knew almost at once it was just an April Fool's joke, but still, the idea just... :shudder:
WTF, Numagrounds? thats really gay. That stuff about the "post 9-11" world is bull shit. You need to keep it real, fuck housewives.
heh heh, your kidding right Tom? I hope to god this is an april fools joke, or else i'm gonna have to find another place to submit flash movies. PLEASE let this be an april fools joke tom. PLEASE!
Let's all catch thumbtacks on our bare eyes!

In a post-911 environment with an ongoing war against terror, I thought the tank logo was a bit too warmongerish and hostile. Our business consultants feel that hostile branding breeds a hostile audience, hence all the problems we have with troublesome users.
Recently, we have seen an amazing thing happen with the Numa Numa Dance. We received POSITIVE press for once, traffic flourished and I received tons of encouraging emails from housewives around the country. These women really loved that video of Gary. Our market research shows that housewives in their mid-30s to late-40s are THE TARGET demographic on the web. They have time to browse and money to spend. Best of all, THEY DON'T CAUSE PROBLEMS. They send me emails of appreciation and encouragement instead of stuff like, "YOU SUCK!" and "FUCK YOU!"
So it has been decided that NG could benefit a bit from a change in attitude... A new brand for new times. I've decided that Gary and the Numa Numa Dance are the perfect icon for this next step, hence I am now re-branding Newgrounds as NUMAGROUNDS. From now on, please point your browser to http://www.numagrounds.com. It is currently set to redirect, but the total transfer will be complete in the next 30 days.
This is just a first step to test the water... I think this is a big moment for Newgrounds. We will still be catering to everyone, but we need to make a shift for the good of the site. Remember, more traffic for Newgrounds means more exposure for your Flash. More money for Newgrounds means better prizes! We think we can manage to still showcase the great "youth work" on the site, while also maturing a bit with content that can be enjoyed by adults across the country. After all, I'm getting on in years... How long do you think I can laugh at stick figures exploding themselves?
I hope everyone understands why we are taking this step. I hope you will take this step with us. Together we can make Numagrounds the site Newgrounds always aspired to be!!!
why. why.why.WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. at one point tom there was a point that you were a god. now with this i cant believe that ng is going to betray all those whos soul live for newground artists that only care for the animations not the popular press icons. why tom why? ( goes and cries in a feedle position ) i dont care whether it is april fools day or not tom fulp is supposed to be honest on situations like this. WADE DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BROTHERS INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WELL IT'S ABOUT TIME I SAY!
I've thought this site has been lacking for quite some time now, and I think NUMAGROUNDS will be the perfect change for me. For so long now, I've been visiting this site, and those goddamned tank logos have really ruffled my feathers. I say nice move Tom! I know I won't be the only one that feels this way. Hopefully soon you will change the tank logo I'm typing on right now to that fantastic faggy Gary Logo, so I may stare deep into his eyes as I type.
hahhahahah... i havent even read anything in this thread yet, but i can bet that when i do im gonna find a lot of dumbasses who can't realize that this site is run by Tom Fulp: the comic genius.
APRIL FUCKING FOOLS!
heheh.. numagrounds. best. prank. ever.

I just personally like the name newgrounds better... Numagrounds seems kind of stupid to me. "Viral Content for Your Demographic" is a good slogan, but once again, I liked "The problems of the future, today!". Plus, the picture of a fat guy on the front logo just doesn't look good.
you tom are a betrayer to your own people of this wonderful site that geeks like that emo kid down the street call home. why would you do this i mean why dont you create a seperate site that could be numagrounds but dont change the newgrounds that we know today. a ten year old legacy crushed in an instant, i cant bear to think of it. why are there no famous artists rebeling against this tom have you never thought about the madness your creating. people will rebel against such idiotic actions. pathetic.
