Ok well this is what I have to ask and say. As you all ready know Tom I sent you a few emails about it, thanks for the fast reply. I wanted to ask after reading the front post, a few questions that popped in my head:

Are you planning on making the area/bulding that you get a design location like a work area, or is it going to be a office/entertainment area maybe like a little lounge with computers in it?

As for renting the rest of it. Please I am already intrested in that. How much would it cost for a place to sleep and live in the back , maybe a location to host Skuddle Media when its up and running and son on. Please hit us up on that one.

Downtime? Ok well if everything is running off of home office and computers how much downtime will newgrounds recieve when the server is relocated/IP changed from the incoming lines, switchboards all setup again, and new networking? Its going to be a pain.

Creative Team? Are you planning on making a creative team that works for newgrounds? Maybe one that has a office to go to and creates flash animations for the web based on ideas etc like JibJab media. This way it continues to show the spotlight on newgrounds?

Your goals are becoming physical assets and your being able to check and knick them out one by one. First Newgrounds, then a videogame, now a building, I see a empire growing fast.

Heres an idea: " You should open a media center that people can come too, to work on flash movies for newgrounds, and when they make it using *cough* Legally *cough* on computers there with real registered versions of flash, then have a little Official Newgrounds Intro kinda like the loading ones used to have that flashed on the tank and Newgrounds.Com then loaded the movie, but something says: Created in the Newgrounds.com Flash Lounge or something. Charge a membership fee.. you got it made.

Awesome, good job with the new bid. I'm definitely glad that there is now a potential for a Newgrounds Building. I can't wait to see it myself. I might go there myself and express my appreciation, and, hopefully, meet the great Newgrounds creators themselves.

Definitely the best of luck to you Newgrounds Creators on your new building, and I hope you all do fine in making that building, flourish into a powerful company.

It may be just a one story building right now, but that doesn't mean its going to stay that small. It's just a small step to your big road on to Newgrounds Progression.

I can definitely see something big happening, and I hope it becomes true (or better). Please try your best to get this building, so that way we all know what home could be for Newgrounds.

I would definitely help out, if i could, but as of right now, I can't, too much School stuff to do, and I don't have "money" to donate, which I really want to if I could. I'm just that dedicated to help out, if I could. Sorry that I can't.

Awesome stuff Tom. Hope that all works out for ya. How much is it gonna costa ya exactly?

Real estate is pretty spendy...so i'm guessing atLEAST 1500...if it's any cheaper, you rather got a crappy building, or really ripped them off.

... you better hope you get that building man.
i mean like, it would make newgrounds even better (and like, you could rent out some of the building for like, a video game arcade [because they are great ways to make money] or something like that [food court - oh wait, the building is too small :( ] )
...
I wanna work there.
...
shame about the no ultracool tank logo sign...
...
OMG GREAT IDEA! sell newgrounds things there, as well as a computer cafe thingy and stuff (somebody before me mentioned that)
...
this post sucks, but not it's contents!
Hope you have buisness sucess, Tom!

Yeah Tom do that, unless of course it is illegal in the area you are in to have signs( it actually is in some places) well pole signs, monument signs seem to be hanging in there but the little flashing arrow signs are illegal where I'm at soo we put up a huge ass! monument sign instead.

I got it put a giant NG tank statue in front of the building with "Newgrounds" in front of it in like bright yellow made from neon. You could work it out to where the neon is almost unbreakable by surrounding it in fiberglass. or each letter at least.

But then they'd have to put a lock on the candy.

The idea of doing flash screenings is cool.

I hope you get the office. And I agree with others in the idea of a tank mural.
If you do buy it, I'll have to visit sometime I'm in the area. Good luck, Tom. And Newgrounds will still kick ass whether you get the building or not.

Cool, I hope it all works out! For the sign I think one with the full logo like the one on the upper left hand corner of the main web page would be just fine. Just like that. Also for a mural I was thinking some crazy freaky air brush work would just rock, just get happy with it!

Tom Fulp >As for signage... I hate to disappoint, but I don't plan to get too garish with the NG branding on the front of the building. I want to keep it tasteful (for the sake of the neighborhood) and will probably name it the "Newgrounds Design Center" or something like that.

DUDE!!! Get some publicity make a scene get in the paper break some city codes for christ sake.

There was once this small mom and pop liquior store downtown next to the homeless shelter they made a moderate income until they painted the place pink and called it pussy's liquior then all the towns folk came in because it made front page for breaking some city codes and pissing off the old folk.

now they are retired sitting on a beach somewhere sipping coronas.

lol ng design center !!! Might as well call it the newgrounds recreation center for disabled adults ! lmfao~

mabe tom should build a seperate room for animators ro work in..................he did mention it being calle dthe newgrounds design center.............so why not have animators working there to? Since the office is big that will give his animators enough room for story line boards and such! Lol mabe he could even create a front desk for a secretary to take newgrounds calls!

I dont know it was just an idea.......................but hey you never know what could happen!

Also good luck with the office Tom!

Please people, read what he said before you post a comment.

He needs to accomplish 3 things in order to finalize the deal.

I don't need to remind you of those things.

Yea, srry about that. I hope all the building will belong to Tom.
