Haha! Nice one - I've been away in new york for a few days but i spotted the joke straight away. Very well executed, and remarkably well reasoned, you made it sound a real possibility - it's just a shame you didn't get around to making a spoof site, complete with gary's big face in the top corner, and the music blasting out..

I can't believe there are still f**k wits who are falling for this on the 22nd page. Some people are sooo slow.

I think that's a wee bit drastic, I would think that from a business standpoint it would mean that you would start cracking down harder on offenders in the bad flash area or maybe even inforce the rules of what type of flash would be excepted... I dunno. Marketability is one thing but that almost borders on a drastic measure. I mean, I liked the numa numa dance but even with it's popularity I don't see changing the name of the site, maybe the outlook, not the name. I mean, for me, the name newgrounds has sentimental value.

instead of numagrounds... would've been so funny.

ya, except that theres the fact that some people would then realize it was a joke,and wouldn't spam the boards with 'AH U FKIN IDET TOM!!!!!' and all this noob crap and it wouldn't be as funny to look at at how slow some people can be. Though its a pretty good idea if you ask me. Playboy mix would have been the best.

Wow Tom. I know a whole lot of people have already posted replies to your thread and I think its a good idea that you're trying to clean the site up a little bit. But changing it to NumaGrounds? The numanuma dance is a phase that will more than likely fade. Its not horrible, but people aren't going to be talking about it ten years from now like when All Your Base exploded.

I've been coming to Newgrounds for years now and I even remember all the small flash jokes on the mainpage that would run every minute or so. Thats the kind of stuff I liked newgrounds for. I understand you have to make a profit somehow, but newgrounds really isn't a place that most housewives are going to want to visit every day. And if you do change it to NumaGrounds and try to get those sorts of viewers, are you going to change all of your sponsoring to Avon and cooking supplies? I know if my mother came here and saw porn and hentai advertisments she'd be a little disturbed, whether it held her favorite flash or not.

Basically, I say screw the demograhpics and keep newgrounds for generation x. This is a great site already and although change is good, sometimes its not always the best.

...okay so perhaps I should have looked at the date of the post. That day flew right by me this year because nobody tried to prank me. I feel like an ass.

Whatever, my comment still stands--joking or not.

Numa dance isn't that great. Yeah, it got positive press review, but what about in a month's time. By changing the web site over this... flash... you are investing in a fab that is liable to collapse very soon. I don't want to see newgrounds become viewed as or remembered as "that one site with numa dance on it". I want it to be remembered as a site with a huge collaboration of ideas and flashes. Even if it does bring a small amount of new traffic, trying to find the Numa Dance, it just isn't a good idea. There are plenty of other ways around the "war-monger" image.

As much as the Numa Dance is somewhat entertaining, it isn't really that great to tell you the truth. Sure, it made the news and everything, but still, anybody could do a dance like that on their webcams. Granted, I did email the person that made that footage, it still overhyped.

As for "Numagrounds", I think that shouldn't happen. Stick to Newgrounds, and everything's cool.

today, a bunch of jerk offs in my java class were getting all excited about numa. they were all like" lets show eveyone what numa is all about!" java class is soooo boriing and to make things worse, they memorized the lyrics and choreography to numa. I was soo disgusted. anyway, the school disabled flash on the comps so I was laughin in their faces.

Eventually we got into a fight bout numa's rights. I said it bleonged to new grounds, that jerk said it was albino black sheep. Then I got embarresed becuase I noticed that I was in a nred fight with a nerd about a nerd subject. anyway, does numa belong to newgrounds or albino? and whats with the stealing or flash?!

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...

I could care less about the april fools thing, im saying. I completely hate numa garbage and i refuse to even type that crap in my browser to come to this site. Stupid, hell, i've already been banned from writing reviews because of what i think of gary. I already find myself visting this site less and less... nothing has been happening recently... all the same crap on the front page and all.
