well, i hope for you guys, cause a basement seems like a bad place for a studio. ill cross my toes too! good luck

This actually brings up a big question I've been wanting to put out there. We might have a fair amount of spare room in the office, that is, more space than we can afford to fill with employees. So if there are creative people who work from home and want to get into an energizing office environment, I think this would be the place. You wouldn't be paid, but you wouldn't be obligated to NG, either. The question would be what you can bring to the table in exchange for space in the office - such as doing free work for NG in your spare time. Does that sort of thing sound fun? :)

It sounds like lots of fun! However it does bring up a counter-point, which is, how in the hell do I sustain myself financially in the meantime? Someday, I would love to be able to just make cartoons and be profitable at it, but right now that's just not happening. So, simply put, I'd have to find a way to produce a huge amount of disposable income in order to stay afloat.

In the end it's a huge catch 22 that basically requires me to stay here until I achieve that goal of making self-sustaining cartoons.II think most people would probably have the same problem. Or maybe I'm just whining a lot. :)

In any event, it does sound like a pretty good concept. Of course you could always just hire my ass, I have an art degree you know :P heh.

Holy shit...there it is...a Newgrounds internship. Of course it sounds fun! Time for me to research the demand for multimedia out in Philly!

Hmmm...I haven't worked on Gunstar Heroes, but I've got freelance work involving Flash game design for Cartoon Network on my resume! How does that sound??

Hmmm....I....um...I KNOW RUN-FU! Actually, what would free work for NG be, tele-marketing?

Yeah, Newgrounds should have an office, with cats jumping on the keyboad 'n' stuff like that, and office would be a better place than a basement. I hope your offer is accepted Tom.

"NG HQ Team" Hey I want to work at your building, Im pretty good at art, both by hand and formidable on the computer, Ive got a can do attitude and Im a hard worker. Ive been a loyal member for going on 4-6 years now, I think... Ill have to check on that one somehow.Im only 16 and out scrounging for a job, so if not now I look foreward to working there in the future, it would truly be a dream job thanks. and hey, Im curious if there would be wages, if not Id still work there though but for limited time with working another job. A guy has to make a living. I wouldn't be surprised if you could get a huge team, ppl would be begging at your feet to work for you. I know Im young, but Im a dreamer, just likeyou were once when you began NG. Good luck on your aquisition of the building.Andy

Yes, that sounds FUN. I have an office job right now, but I hope to go out on my own eventually. My skills far exceed my paycheck and with a few more I'll be a one-stop shop. So my own business/freelance might be a move of mine in the next few years. If you're coming in the area, I'd definately be interested in helping out NG and maybe even sharing some space with you guys. Any chance the place you bid on is any of those I sent you a while back from the Lansdale area? ;) Doubtful. But you may still be in the area. Shoot me a n email email. I'd be happy to spend some weekends lending fixer-upper type help if you've got work to do on the place. That's probably a bit more compelling of a contribution than just buying some stickers :)

That's not bad. You should fill most of it with a giant inflatable bouncy floor. With the fileservers on it.

Talking of which, just saw my first Code (1) error since 2003.

Getting an office will be a real coming-of-age moment for Newgrounds. I might actually be able to get some sort of a team to come to work every day, who knows. I'm trying not to get my hopes up; chances are it will just be a big empty room with me on a computer, ala that movie Simone with Al Pacino. I'm really hoping I'll have a team, though. It's just so hard to get people to come work in your basement. No one takes you seriously.

Hey Tom, if you do get the office space. You should put a giant picture of the tank and AH up on the wall. Maybe even take and put up other famous NG icons up on your walls. This is just an idea to make your office more homely and gives it a NG touch.
