kudos on the offer tom!

you should put a more newgroundish sign up front. at least one for the grand opening of the office

and you should have the building open to NG users and fans to com in and tour the place during the day and stuff. it'd be like a tourist attraction

Sounds great I have faith in you. Pretty soon we'll have the ng building and the server will get even bigger.

Awesome. I am all for hockey in the office. But I thought you hate offices. It'll be interesting to see how a Tom Fulp's Newgrounds office will look like. I'm hoping for a pull-out couch. And, and, and... giant inflatable penes 'n shit. Kinda like the old offices. But BIGGER!

Or whatever you like. Does this mean Wade will have to wear a tie to work now?

Wow, that all sounds amazing. I'm so excited! I really hope this office comes through for you, Tom! I like your idea of keeping it simple and not too glaring... I've always been an advocate of "Elegance in Simplicity."

But we still need pictures! I know it's not final yet, but the suspense is killing me! Hopefully after all the inspections are done and it's in writing you can give us some pictures. Until then, I must use my imagination...

ok I've been wondering also the point of moving into a building. sure it will make newgrounds as a company seem more credible...but could you give any specific details as to how it could increase profit, or efficiency? those would be the two main reasons why small business seek out offices.

I just can't figure out how a building will increase profit. even if you hire a few more full time guys, what can be done to increase profit? I know that on the high-tech end of things, you can probably get a "bigger server" or something like that, which would make newgrounds run more efficiently and gain a bigger user base.

like, I'm sure the launch of Alien Hominid set the hits of newgrounds through the roof. because it was advertised on TV and as well as in magazines, so it just reached more people, but this office idea...I'm not knocking it, I just can't see how it will increase profit or anything else really, besides making newgrounds just seem more credible as a company.

Maybe with an office and with statistics to show that newgrounds reaches over 1 million people worldwide a day or something like that, you could get a CRAZY world wide sponsor like Nike, or CocaCola. I mean hey, if you're gonna think big, then think REALLY BIG!

thanks.

Oh, man. I love this idea of a Newgrounds office, but it just seems that as it expands, it will turn into more of a buisness. And then money come into it. I can't see myself staying at Newgrounds if it became money hungry, and the fact that there is nothing like "Sign up for a SUPER account for $30 a month" is what makes Newgrounds great.
I think the idea of expanding into a building is great but it can also be negative.

I'm tellin' you dude, huge tank mural. Inside if you must, but it'd rock to shove to the "we need parking space" guys' face.

Nice! Congrats, Tom. Hope everything goes well, but if not there's some space for lease in my building.

The spot isn't ideal for that sort of thing, but there is always long term potential for it. We'll have to see how the parking situation in the area changes over time.

That's really cool Tom, I'm not really sure as to how you're feeling (excited, anxious etc), but it would be really good to see NG open up and live in a bigger place.

I hope everything turns out ok and that it's a happy ending. =)

Sound like if you have that much extra space you could rent out what you don't use and get some extra cash.
