That e-mail really put into words the way I feel about newgrounds, it has exploded recently and really helped push me to start making my own. I'm glad everyone has an opportunity to enjoy the work of others and submit their own. Peace

Changing the face of animation? There are some good animations on here, but nothing cataclysmically industry changing.

Without the Newgrounds community, I wouldn't have developed my skill enough to have won this glorious award:

http://www.rainbowanimations.com/awardbest.jpg

It's been special to be part of the NG community. That letter was right!

On another note, I didn't like Stop Cryin Your Heart Out, but the idea that artists can come together to create something is...interesting.


Rainbow Animations <-- for my website.

Perhaps this letter could be some kind of source of inspiration for a new slogan for NG. That letter summed up exactly what Newgrounds is, so even:
Newgrounds - The way of the future
is a good start.

Nice to hear NG is receiving so much praise from people, and people are seeing that Newgrounds is a place where people can get new opportunities.

That was a really nice e-mail he sent you, Tom.

Everything in that e-mail was true, except for the 'slacker' part, cause that would solely entail the entire works of the Star Syndicate.

This site to me really is my home, for a online community. This site is much more than just about games and movies, and audio. I can usually find out about stuff here in the world news faster than reading the newspaper because of intrepid users. Or what's current with Technology online through these news posts. Meeting new people, making friends.

This site really is one big family. Albeit a dysfunctional one, but one I am proud to belong to.

I have been comeing to Newgrounds, for years, I'm not sure how long. I just know that it has been a very long time. I have been giving insparation to make a flash movie on several accounts, but never had the guts to submit any of them. For some reason I felt my work was never good enough to be posted, I'm working on a stop motion project using Gundum wing models, kinda like Knox's claymation, alas I feel I won't submit that either, but I just wanted to say that the words Walter Baumann ring true to my ears, I have watched Newgrounds grow over the years and have been very impressed that the "man" hasn't gotten ahold of it...and honestly I hope they never will. This is a place that has touched my heart as an artist and has insipired me, made me cry, laugh. You all know how I feel, I'm sure you can relate to my words. I don't offten post anything...just a fly on the wall like most who visit, but that e-mail said to me that, even if your a fly on the wall, your words of encouragement and advice are needed and wanted. Enough of me going on and on........d00die...

I always looked at newgrounds like more of a suphisticated "free speech political critisizm effect" site then a "c00l gamez0rs site"

Yes, mediocre, crudely-animated cartoons are changing the face of animation, for sure. Flash "artists" come about a dime a dozen, & it's swell. Now everyone & their mother (& Jeff Weise!) can make crappy Flash "experiments" and then post them on Newgrounds to be blammed.

The best thing about "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" was the quote at the end, & it was only there for a split second. I read fast but even I barely caught it, & besides, they can't take credit for something that Walt Disney said anyhow. I don't see what's so monumental about a series of out-of-place characters. I know, let's get 3,000 people together to animate 1 frame each for a single two and one half minute movie. It will be better than dog shit.

I’m simply an anti-transcendentalist. Not that Newgrounds sucks, because it’s mostly cool, except for a few annoyances (nothing is perfect). Not that Flash MX isn't great, because it is revolutionary. Not that anything I make with Flash will be any better, because it won't be. But I will like it, as I'm sure that most of them like their own animations, & that's all that matters. Except Stamper. He doesn't like any of his old skool toons, which is crap. Tom Fulp doesn't like his old stuff either because he judges it based on today's fancy Flashes & advanced techniques. Even worse! Mr. Fulp, you are a visionary, start acting like it. Don't be arrogant but give yourself more credit at least. I doubt it will hinder your progress in making even better & better things. You will always be the legendary Tom Gulp in my eyes! But not even the legendary Tom Gulp or even Wade will read what I have to say, but maybe someone else will. And they will be pleased. And it will be good.

"What more could I say? I wouldn't be here today if the old skool didn't pave the way..."

Thats a very good letter to recive and hopefully we have revolutionised his life forever. I would also like to take this moment to say thanks to all the flash animators that have entertained me and will entertain me in years to come. Thank you Newgrounds!
