Mr. Fulp, I know you are quite busy running Newgrounds, but if you could answer a question, it would be much appreciated.

As you must be acutely aware, the Clock Crew is a rather a controversial group. At times the "Clock Genre" and questionable voting techniques have been called into question. I have been quite vocal about this on the BBS.

I know you want to maintain the community feel of Newgrounds and not turn a single flash artist away. However, given the nature of the Clock Crew, I feel that more damage is occurring to Newgrounds than benefit.

When new visitors come to the site and eventually find their way to the Portal - they are quite impressed. The idea of quality control and a voting system is progressive and quite laudable. However, after a short quite it becomes obvious that the score a movie receives has little to do with its actual quality.

In fact, for certain genres, movies it inexplicitly high score where the flash itself does not warrant it.

I feel that a large number of flash developers have, upon this realization, not submitted their work or basically become disconnected with the site. In this sense, the Clock Crew costs Newgrounds a large selection of quality movies.

Are you going to take steps to counter this long-stemming problem? You might be able to resolve the problem by increasing the vote threshold to a higher number - perhaps 400. You could allow members to blow the whistle on suspected "cheats". Finally, the system could do some quick statisical analysis on votes to determine if a percentage falls outside the normalized score.

Anyway, I would love to hear your thoughts.

Either we can try to stop this from happening, by "locking the portal" or whistling on movies like some mods said,

OR we could celebrate this day and make it into the happy event that it is.

Happy clock day <3

Lol

Happy Clock Day one and all. Don't hold a grudge against those who are able to get a 3.0+ average just because they submit something with the word Clock in the title. After all, there's the rest of the year where people violently destroy clock movies on sight.

Let the crew have it's fun, and watch some of the decent animations that get through into this new collection.

It's an honour to serve for B. Vote five.

This Clock Day is a mockery. There's some real quality flash submitted, but a few farms worth of absolute shit.

It's kind of ironic really that on the CC website they're complaining about others spamming the Portal...

Don't forget mine! If you loved Frogbag Gets A License you're going to love this because it also features Frogbag and therefore is as good.

I will probably make a parody if I bother.

And people are voting high on them anyway. O_o


50% of all statistics are made up 90% of the time.
