Tom owns the site and has hired the rest of us to help maintain it.

You like to say "Busy" a lot...

Hey man, if you guys are stressing out, i'd lighten the load for you. I'll work in exchange for minimal amounts of food...and i can clean one mean bathroom! Anything to help this haven called NG :-D

usually i see what is on the front page and i am never dissapointed. However i do usually see some anoying review saying stuff like How the hell did this get on the front page. Quite a recent example of this was the Sin City Tribute which i enjoyed a lot. For some reason people were giving the author reviews like OMFG how did this get on the front page ect. Personally i think everything on the front page is great if you complain about what is on the front page then you probably submitted something to newgrounds it never got on so lets piss other people off. Luckily newgrounds users like me can click abusive on the review because the review just isnt helpful


But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.

Probably just a regular text link in the review field that says "Review guidelines" or "You have agreed to our guidelines" with guidelines being a link.

*Waves hand* Buy NewGrounds stickers, you will. Production costs covered, they must be.

Anyway, good point but it shouldn't be new to anyone who's bothered to read the review guidelines ...

This has happened a lot with Jerry Jackson flashes, they rule and always make front page but some people are so stupid they cannot fathom the meaning of irony and they make a barrage of reviews saying "wtf this frong page?"


Give my thoughts form and make them look insightful.

I know, and that's why I continue to do it, because you all love it so much. It's funny when people appear to be seriously annoyed with my sticker plugs.

Illwill catches more bad reviews and moronic "Woot go Foamy, i love you" crap than any other artist I know of. I mine his movies for whistle points by nailing the hateful idiots who can't get enough of knocking him.

Maybe they should add stupid/pointless to the yes/no/abusive buttons.

Well, Wade has at least managed a rant out of his busy schedule. The least we experienced Newgrounders can do is uh... um...

I'll just... go sit down now.

But buy NG stickers! You guys have that great stuff called, um, oh yeah! Money! I have something similar called Debt-out-my-ears. Rats.

BTW Wade, if you want to comment on the e-mail I sent you by all means -- I think it's tangential to this thread but might make a good new one. If not, well I've voiced my concerns.

lol nice rant. I really hate it when people say this doesnt deserve to be in the top 50 or this shouldnt be on the front page. Its pointless really, and they should be banned for that. I think its still ok to say "this deserves a front page spot" or this is top 50 wortyhy or sumthin like that.

Wade,
I've read your rant and can only agree. The motivation why most of them start bitching or are plain negative about movies/games being frontpage is because they are jealous! People can't stand that others have success or they hate seeing others happy because something happened in their lives which is a big plus or a big boost in morale for that person.
I've had a bad youth and after much hard work, studying and personal endeavours, I can say for myself that I have a pretty good life now. I'm quite happy now, mostly because I found something to believe in: reiki. I'm happy with it, but I notice that other people try to break me, being generally very rude and obstructive.
It all comes down to them being jealous, in a sense like: "why is he happy and I'm not? He doesn't deserve this, I do..."

Oh well, I can accept this as something that's THEIR problem, not mine. You and all the other admins are doing fine. I have never ever found one front page movie/game odd or wrong. Everything I have seen deserved to be on the front page!


Get your life back!
