When i was 10, in 2000, a friend showed me Pico school and after i played it i started browsing NG for games and stuff. Then in 2004 i said to myself: "Hey, i should create and account on NG!" I'm angry against myself for not signing up sooner.

A few years ago, a kid asked me "Do you go to Newgrounds?" I replied, "Newgrounds? Tell me more..."

Back in '99, a friend of mine showed me the site because of some funny-ass mk spoof, and some classic harry potter/dragonball z spoof. I loved it, but then my firend left for america and so i kinda forgot about teh site. Then one summer of 2004 i think, i redoscovered the site out of boredom, and of course, got crack-addicted to it.

My Brother told me about it in 1999, unfortunatly i didnt make an account til a year or so ago. I still remember The Seven Seagal Episodes that were top of the top 50 chart.

I think I was looking for something to do with a game, like cheats or something, then I found a link to this site for some reason. At first I thought this site was horrible, but I got used to it lol. :D And the only reason I made an acc was so I could vote big 5's on MrChocobo's work. ;)

My friend wanted to show me some DBZ flashes. I had a bit of a look at NG later on, but I wasn't too interested. Later last year, I did look at the site and decided to join. I just joined all of sudden without a reason and I guess that was really unusual. Oh well, at least I did know how to deposit the day I joined.

your thirteen.... "years ago" you would have been 9 or 10... why is there a 9 or 10 year old girl looking up newgrounds, which back then, would have bee nat the height of it's notoriety ( assassin, club a seal, Pico's School, and the infamous Tellybubby Funland )

your 13, your too young to be on this site, go away...

ANYWAY...

my buddy told me about it in 2nd year.... so that would have been about 6 years ago...

MOTHER OF FUCK, ive been coming here for six years....
allthough i stopped logging on here right after i signed up for some reason

first thing i ever saw on here (as far as i remember) was telebubby funland...
on my piece of shit modem it took a good 15 minutes to download...

i have the exact same computer right now as i did when i first saw newgrounds....

</sentimental bullshit>


as a wise man once said - " i don't know whats i be doin'... "

The first time I came to NG was when a friend told me aboout it... it was back in 1998... at the time I didn't really want to come to the site... Why? because NewGRUNDS sounded like UnderGROUND.... and I had visited some underground sites that had given me viruses... until I decided to come to NG and I liked it.... then I never came back until 2002 when I made my grounds gold account and came to the BBS like 2 yrs ago.

i don't remember how i discovered NG. it was six months ago. i knew about NG, but i didn't know about this community stuff and the experience system, so i didn't sign up. to be honest, i had absolutely no idea what forums were. i used the internet only for downloading stuff, but now i know that there's a hell of a lot more to it than meets the eye. i think i joined at a bad time, because a lot of users are saying that the forum was more popular a few years back or something. well, at least i'll be able to submit my flash here when i make some.

I first visited from various links from GameFAQs way back in 2003, I believe.
Then I signed up for an account a few months ago, forgot about it, then remembered it.

The first time I came to this site was because of Brutallity I think. I remember having to wait for a good 20 minutes for it to load too. That was when I was all DBZish. I used to visit here every once in a while but I really saw no need in signing up. Then I started getting into flash couple of months ago and created my account.

Then i forgot about it. But later found it by playing Pico's school on another website and clicked the link to here. I was then hooked.

Why does everyone say this. You did not come here in 99 or 98 or 95..

Just admit you found it around your sign up date.

But I did come here in 99, and I still have my account to prove it. :D

Because they think the real old timers will except them or they want to seem more cool. With the way sign up dates are no way to prove who was or wasn't here before 12/15/99. I highly doubt those who say anything before 98. Most people will reference stuff from the history of the site, which is so obivous.

I can't remember, but my earliest NG memory is playing all the Assassin games like Kill Judge Judy and that one where you have to snipe Arnold Schwarzenegger in a ballet costume. That was back in 2001. I could have had such a high level if I had signed up then ;_;

Well, I found this game called Pico's School at some other game site. I liked that game so I visited NG for the first time (about one year ago). I left almost immediatly cause I didn't really get what kind of site this was. A couple of months later (somewhere december last year) I thought, mm what would be a good name for a website, Newgrounds sounds good. I was sure I've seen that name before so I went on the internet and this site came out offcourse. I checked some stuff out and after a couple of weeks a decided to join NG and it's one of the most addictive sites I've ever been to. I could have been lvl 11 or 12 by now if I signed up when I first visited, but I don't really mind.

It was an accident I swear.

There I was, searching for "French Erotic Film" (by TmsT if I remember rightly) on Google, and then up popped Newgrounds. Intrigued, I clicked the link and have been here ever since (about four days).
