It was once again time to purge the Portal whistle list. These are entries that were flagged by our users that they felt violated our guidelines. We do our best to un-flag any entries that were unjustly flagged, but it's possible we missed some. We find 99% or more of the flagged entries deserved to be flagged. We also get a flood of emails from "artists" complaining about their entries being pulled for review. We find 99% of these complaints are false and their entries did violate our guidelines in one way or another. When this happens we terminate the account of the user who filled a false complaint. So BE WARNED, WE WILL TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT FOR WASTING OUR TIME.
If your entry was removed from our site and you feel it didn't violate any guidelines you may re-submit it. Before you do this read over our guidelines very carefully. They are listed on the Flash Portal submit form. Also make sure you clearly credit the work as your own. If the users can't easily confirm you are the creator of the entry they may flag it as stolen. A good way to prevent this is to list your Newgrounds username and Newgrounds verified email address in the opening of your Flash entry. It is helpful to allow users to view your Newgrounds verified email address. Also if you have a web site that also showcases your Flash be sure to link to it from your Newgrounds user profile and list your Newgrounds verified email address on your web site.
