I think newgrounds gets too much crap to the front page. basically what i see is Anime, Blood and Video game Parodies. Alot of people's work is based on stuff they dnt think of themselves. I think of most of my work (i think its ok to spoof, but too much is unoriginal) and i know its hard to get a really good original idea. But at least try. I know my drawings aren't THE BEST but i think i should get credit for my ideas. I think its harder to have ideas than to animate.
Speaking of the Bloody humor, i like sadistic comedy, but somtimes people (like David Firth) just go over the line. The valentine cartoon was just disturbbing.
And the Anime issue, i think its cool but i hate the fact that just about everyone uses it. people complain about my style but personally, i like the simplistic style.
Thats why i would like to see more NEW stuff on Newgrounds. Everythings is becomming repetative. The amount of video game depended morons is multiplying. (i LOVE video games i really do,) but i dont have EVERYTHING in my life based on them. And i also don't hate somthing unless it is video game based.
anyways, just a peice of my mind

Who the hell is forcing you to watch everything?
You know, you're not the person that puts the stuff on the front page, you go to a site willingly that is basically full of anime, video games, and weird people.
Its your fault.

No because each person has his own view on what is cool and what's not. The majority of people like the "Blood, Anime, and Video Game Parodies" so that's whats on the front page. If you want to watch something else, there's an entire website of content...
Here's the deal : The movies you see on the front page are there to maximise traffic. Apparantly, people are into the things you mentioned and it's one of the reasons NG is so popular. People come for the anime dating sims and stay for the VG parodies, that's just the way it works. If your flash contains something that has the potential to draw in new members (Anime, hentai, porn, video game references, etc) then it's far more likely to get a spot on the front page.
Besides, the amount of slots on the front page was recently increased, meaning they can display good flash as well as traffic pullers. As far as I'm concered, it's fine. All of it.
