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!!!

well, thats it....im killing myself...that or never coming to newgrounds (numagrounds). THIS NUMA NUMA THING IS TOO MUCH. its so fucking horrible. its just some fat guy dancing. if you wanna see that, just go over to my boy mikes apartment, stand on a ladder, and dangle a lil debbie above his step fathers head. screw numagrounds. tom, wade, everyone else who has had part in making numagrounds, i extreamly hope this is a practical joke...if not, i hope all your admerations burst into flames, while you lose hundreds, thousands of accounts, as well as your flash count slowly declines to 0 per day.

Numagrounds is just too obvious, Tom, you need to brainstorm something better.

yeah, what would be hillarious is if you deleted pierrot-le-fou's account!

On the contrary, I think this the best NG April Fool ever. It's so shitty and slack and obvious that the people who DON'T get it are even stupider than normal. And that's marvellous.

well im not all that excited with the name being changed to numagrounds. its not like im going to stop coming to this site and all because the new name, but i seriousley think their are much better ways to make newgrounds a better place than changing the name, especially to numagrounds (no offense, i thought the flash was kind of funny, but it was still pretty gay).
if you were trying to make newgrounds a better place you should of just made the site a little more strict. for example, making it so the site would not allow any offensive words to be in the posts put on newgrounds, like racial comments and possibly swearing. or just bleep out the swearing so we still can say what we want without it being to offensive (could just bleep out the ones like "fuck" and "shit" like they do on tv and radio). and if people try pulling stupid crap like putting spaces between each letter so it doesnt get taken or bleeped out, ban them for a few hours to a few days or possibly permenantly.
so at least try other ways before doing something so drastic to the site like changing the name, but if this is your final decision and you feel this is truely the last possible resort, then i understand and ill try to give it a chance... maybe ;)

I actually believed this until I read the post date. At first I thought he posted it yesterday or something. Numa dance is overrated.

I also never understood what people have against gullible people. They're just falling for a joke...
