For years now we have talked about how we would eventually have a dynamic system for managing the collection and series pages. That dream is now becoming a reality!

James has built a back-end system that stores all the collection information in the database. This means it can be managed more easily, without downloading, editing and uploading individual html files (we have around 170 such pages on the site). We have already ported all the existing collections and series pages to the database and have updated most of them in the process. However, we haven't launched these new pages yet - that is coming soon!

Now that we have the back-end in place, however, we can finally start taking suggestions for collections. If you are logged in on a page for a submission, you will see a button that says "SUBMIT TO COLLECTION". Clicking this will now open a window that lists all existing collections in our database. You can check off boxes next to the appropriate collections and submit your recommendation! These submissions will not be added instantly - they are merely there to guide administrators.

In the long-run, this will hopefully help us better maintain the collection and series pages. We will eventually be assigning mods for specific pages. For example, select members of the Clock Crew or Lock Legion may have access to maintain their specific collection pages. An author for a series will have access to maintain his or her own series page.

We still have a ways to go, but the major groundwork has been put in place for the new system. Expect Newgrounds to stay much more fresh and up-to-date throughout in the coming months! This includes much better maintained GAMES and TOONS pages as well!

IN OTHER NEWS... The $100 winner for May has been selected and the winner is Jess42882! She doesn't have any BBS posts, but she has written a few reviews so you might be able to find her. :)


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Excellent. Keeping the collections pages in a state of consistant update is no longer merely a dream.

That's very nice to hear about the collections Tom. :) And the winner, meh, I wish June's winner will be someone that has made quite a lot of BBS posts.

BTW Tom, are you able to give a link to the user's profile, unless it's a vagrant?

I'm already on it, and have suggested Oklahoma City Escapades and Tsunami Loot-Up for the Bastards Collection.

Somehow, I am concerned about abuse of this feature. Rules may be necessary, and a limit on daily suggestions might be recommended.

Also, you can't make series of things that don't already have a page for it. I can't really suggest Mars Conspiracy anywhere.

DAMN, the thread liljim posted must be a blow to the gut to people with above 1000 posts, like you, I'm halfway there

Great job, except... you sort of broke EVERY link to the collections on the submit page. XD

You forgot to put an S at the end of collection! It's http://www.newgrounds.com/collections, not collection. :P

I'ma go suggest some flash now. :)

Might as well suggest my Numa Sprita.

Good luck with this anyway!

Never mind, I'm assuming that it's already been selected for the collection, since 7 Kisses is greyed-out for the Hentai Dressups choice. Nice to see the button finally implemented, here's hoping that everything runs smoothly with the feature...
