Liljim, your HTML aids are nice, but have you noticed the functions on some modern message boards? They allow you to select a chunk of text in your post, click ie. italic, and it automatically wraps the selected italic tags around the selected text. And similiarly for links, too: if you select some text, click link, it should just ask what is the href parameter and automatically wrap it around the selected text.

Just some web 2.0-ish suggestions which would be nice to see.

a chance to break the text in your profile message maybe? My current profile message would be a lot better if I could make a new line for -none-

I totally agree. That is the one thing that annoys me a lot. My profile message has more than one and you cant split each different topic up onto a new line.

I would love to be able to, and it would look much better. Although you wouldnt be able to type as much because every line break would cause less room for text.

Two ideas for new features on the forums:

1. A "Mark all as read" button. I'm not sure how the code works, so I can't get more specific, but it's pretty self explanatory. Pretty useful feature in other forums I've used.
2. An "Ignore this thread" button. Would be good for users who don't want to sift through some of the garbage discussions. You could just ignore them, but this could permanently set a thread's tank icon to gray, making browsing a little faster. Might be an increase on server load, again, I'm not sure how the code works.

I'd say the first would be a lot more helpful (and used) than the second, but both would be nice.

Modify view count to let you see downloads and not just views. There is so much spam traffic through Newgrounds that it is impossible to get an accurate count of downloads.

And just for the hell of it, Co-Authors and the original Author shouldn't be added to the count. Just to get a more accurate idea of where the submittion is when first passing through the portal.

I seriously think the number of chars allowed in a password should be doubled from 10 to 20.

Specially with a few folk having recently been password-hacked, I was a tad concerned and wanted to lengthen mine. Probably to 16 chars, but 20 seems a reasonable limit.

Why can't we PM ourselves? It would be useful, so I can use my (otherwise empty) PM inbox as a pastebin or something.

Everyday, umpteen users sign up, and many of them make threads. Now, threads are the bread and butter of forums, and the 3 topic per day limit is swell and all, but I think there should be a time limit between started topics. For example, you can only make one of your three per 30 minutes. I'm sick of going on the forums and seeing 3 (usually pointless) topics by the same (noob idiot) loser all on the front at one time. Not only does it push more useless topics off the screen, but it drives me fucking mad.

Personally, I think one topic a day would be enough. With a forum as massive as Newgrounds, people should be worrying about the quality of just a single thread. If they have two great ideas in a single day, they only have to wait a 24 hours. They can use that time to manage and improve the thread they already have up.

NG removes tools from the author's submission options after certain waypoints. For instance, after 400 votes, you can no longer remove a flash. After awhile, you no longer are able to update the flash icon. And so on.

My solution--do not remove any tools. Instead, just make it so that these changes must be verified by admins or special mods after the waypoints have been hit.

It would be nice if your flash and music submissions in your profiles, were numbered like your favourites are.

That would make knowing how many submissions a user has SO much easier.

Actually, there is one. We even have a Pal Talk room. You can find all the instructions you need on the page I linked you to.

what if there was a way to see when someone quotes your words and posts it so you can respond/ read what they wrote in response to your statement/question.

get sent a message? and you can turn this option off.

cool idea?

Like the idea of voting on the same page.

i think this would make people more likly to accually view what they are voting, especially with high conection speed i tend to just click play this movie, and as soon as the voting thing pops up vote and close the window.....and when people IM me and tell me to vote fiffen on their submissions, i dont watch i just vote 5.....i might watch if it's on the same page.

I just had to refresh the browser again to check if there was a reply,

the thing is though, if I was'n getting a reply within the 5 minutes or so, I'd probably be doing something else, then in the meantime if I had a reply that was asking me a question for my post matter, then they are not gonna get a reply either , well they will when I return to the post and refresh the browser or try and find my post between all of the others.
I think if NG had a system where you have an option to choose whether you want to be notified of replies for the posts or not, that would make life a little easier for everyone, so If there are enough people having the same problem as I do now, then lets all suggest to NG for this to be available.

I feel that a minimum word count for reviews needs to be introduced.

There are simply too many reviews from idiots that simply say "That was great!" and NOTHING ELSE, it's annoying and completely unhelpful.

A minimum of at least 30 words should be put in so that the users are required to actually put a little thought into what they're saying.

I feel that when an Underdog or Review Crew pick is deleted, another flash should take it's place. Maybe, once those awards are decided, there are two backup underdogs or review picks, in case the first one is stolen.

The reason a submission doesn't replace it, is because it would be too difficult to manually figure out the reviews from submissions, unlike scores where you can easily pick out the best or worst submission.

It must have been said somewhere else, but I was too lazy to search over these 50-something pages.
The turd of the week award should be removed.
I mean, there are people that are doing very bad flash on purpose, just to get this award. That shouldn't be something you should be proud of.
I don't ask about increasing the limit for which a flash is saved, just to avoid giving an award, even if it is a "turd" award, to somebody that didn't try to make something good.
And maybe it would avoid these thousands of submissions of crews like KK that just massively vote 5 on their flash to get them past the mark, and then massively vote 0 to give it the award...
Or all those guys doing no effort in their flash, and just ask to get the turd of the week...
