Although I thouroughly enjoy the Numa Numa stuff, i think changing the name to Nemagrounds is just wrong. Then name "Newgrounds" is classic. Changing it to Numagrounds would be like changing the NASCAR Winston Cup to the NASCAR Nextel Cup. (still pissed about that) It just wouldn't be right to change a classic name because of a funny video. I've seen funnier things and I dont think you should change the name to match those things either. Even if it was named Kung Fu Music Vidgrounds, I still wouldn't be happy. In conclusion: Newgrounds- yes. Numagrounds- No.

I think 99% of NG realizes this is an April Fool's joke.

A better of your NG April Fools.
Perhaps you could showcase those in a section as well.

And you know I still love you, Tom. <3

Even if the forum smilies have EYEBROWS.
And there're no polls.

Eh? I love the Numa Numa Dance and I knew that it was extremely popular all over newgrounds but I kinda like the newgrounds symbol for the front page and "numagrounds?" I think "newgrounds" has a better ring to the site than "numagrounds."

But to tell you the truth I kinda think that the new look kinda suits "newgrounds."

I was wondering what that was about. I forgot to check the homepage earlier today (West Coast time).

It makes me sad that there were actually people who were, even for a second, fooled by this...

That being said, maybe next year Tom'll come up with a funny April Fool's joke. Some of his other ones from the past weren't bad ^_^

And no offense, Tom... I love ya and all, but next time, try harder...

I think this...Numagrounds....I dont know it just doesnt spark my attention like Newgrounds used to. I dont think your making a wise desicion on renaming the site but to just give the numa numa dance more recognision would be fine. But I guess you can do what you want but i just thought you might want some feedback on this issue.

Thanks,

I definitely think that you should change the name, April Fool's joke or not... Numagrounds.... I think that a Numa should be an animal and not a large white guy... :D

Oh My GOD, Are you fucking serious, that video is so gay, WOW!!! A 3 hundred pound tubolard lipsyncing in front of his computer, HOLY SHIT it's so AMAZING this is a whole new big step for Newgrounds. I can't believe you guys are serious it's just a little stupidass movie that some loser made.

wow, i can't say that i really agree with this choice. while i love Numa Numa dance, it just doesn't seem to fit. i am not here to bash gary or all the cool stuff that has happend because of this, i am saying that it just doesn't seem to go with the rest of the site. Numagrounds? it sounds like this is some kind of offical website for Numa Numa. i loved the term, "newgrounds" because it was something different; something i had never seen before. it was this community where style and substance and humor or stupidity and crudeness all meshed together on line. the tank, at least as how i felt, wasn't about being all militeristic or violent per se, but as a kind of rebellion; going again the norm, creating new and sometimes even amazing things and sharing them with all of us on here to see. now it is Numagrounds, i am a huge avocate of Gary and Numa Numa dance, but it feels a lot like a cope out. Newgrounds is so much better than to let itself take a stumble like this. Mr. Fulp, i hope this is a temporary thing....

Ummm, the ability to pay $20 to put your flash on the front page didnt go away, but Ozcar was modded again, our red names went away and the Numagrounds logog went away. Ohhh noezzz!

What the fuck?! You just change the name at the drop of a hat. Please no. Not Numagrounds. Take your meds and realize you should leave it as is.

It always surprises me how stupid some people can be. You would think that everyone would realize not to fall for stuff dated on April 1st...

Uh, April Fools is over, you can take down that frontpage for $20 notice now. Or are you really going to take that space away from deserving artists and give it to corporate flash sites and attention-grabbing trolls?

I do not support this idea.

When people with more money than skill start finding there way up there, then it will most likely lead to the Newgrounds apocalypse.

It might be an April Fools joke too, though.

I wish that is true, but it's looking bleak. What with the email link and such. If it's a joke, NG did a decent job fooling me. OCRemix.org got in the best one... I'll explain it to anyone who doesn't go there.

OC Remix is changed to EA Remix, so it's totally sponsered by EA (like McNewgrounds). Lame, right? Well, it still managed to get EA's attention and they sent a legal letter to OC, the same you'd see in the Newgrounds legal section. It looked convincing, too. Of course in the end it is revealed that the whole legal letter thing was an additional layer to the April Fools joke, but they fooled me pretty good.

I really hope that you are kidding all of us; Numa was good, but it is not good enough to change such an amazing flash as Newgrounds to some crappy pop-culture numagrounds. I will still be a part of this amazing site, but I think that this change is terrible, and a slap in the face to all of the old time users. I think this switch ir ridiculous, and I hope it fails so that it will go back to being good old Newgrounds!
