I'm making updates to the Politics page. Once there is enough content, I plan to break it into subsections. For example, a section for movies about ENRON and corporate greed, another for the past presidential election, one for the War on Terror (basically the Osama page, but I should update that too), and so on.

If you can find political games and movies that we should be showcasing, please list them in response to this posting!


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

Tom... I hate to be the one to break it to you... but its time to get the friggin War On Terrorism link off of the front page! There is way more deserving stuff for that first slot than disgustingly played out 1 year old movies about Osama!

Some of the political stuff can be pretty inflammatory, Tom. Alot of us are still pretty sore about the last election, and those of us in Florida are pretty well pissed about our current Governor situation. (Maybe that will change after today...fingers crossed.) As long as you make it clear that the views do not necessarily represent NG, you might avoid the flaming mail.

It seems that during the last election, the country has become very polarized into Liberals, Conservatives, and Spoiler Parties. With a nearly 50-50 split, proceed with caution.

- Yes there are, although I do not rely on NG to form any type of opinion. Nothing else is sacred on here, why should we leave the political hacks alone? They are all liars anyway. Some of the flash I have seen is pretty damn funny! I'll be checking the politics page...

I mean I guess it would be good to have one. I mean the last poll that was up was about politics. and many voted. So I guess it would do good to have that.

Sorry in advance.
Im writing this here, becuse I don't know where else i could put it where Tom would see this.
Anyway, so here I am in newgrounds watching movies and after every movie I have to go back to the portal page (which is usually SOOO slow to load up) I would like to suggest that you make a pop-up portal list for the new entries, that way we can just choose from the list without having to wait for the page to download. I may be the only one who has trouble waiting forever for all the new pages to reload but its my suggestion.

NEWGROUNDS RULE!
Thanks for listining.

Hey Tom!

I hate to be a bother but, while we're on the subject of fleshing out the Collections:

I submitted a game that took me months to make, a few weeks ago, and for some reason it was really overlooked, even though it got a decent score of 3.51, and got several warm reviews. My game is a 1-2 player fighter which blends the gameplay of Final Fight, Street fighter, and the 3d arcade fighter, Power Stone. It has 10 weapons too :)

I hate to self-advertise so much but I think my game is kinda the victim of "Double-Yolker-syndrome" (a quality submission which for whatever reason got largely ignored and overlooked)

Basically all Im asking is if you (or Wade) could take a quick look at my game and see if it's something you want in the fighting game collection.

Thanks (and I hope I didn't come off sounding like a pathetic loser ;) )

Never feel pathetic for pointing out something you worked really hard on! The last game that was completely overlooked on NG (until the author emailed me) was The Skullkid, and that has become one of the biggest hits on the site!

Geek Fighter rocks! I have been dying for a Power Stone style fighting game (and dammit, I still wanna make my own! hehe), so this fits quite nicely! I added it to the fighting games collection, and I'll probably be giving it some other publicity tomorrow!

Nobody Cares about ENRON since it was shown that the republicans and democrates were equally involved with them.

ENRON really died as an issuse and failed to catch on as a buzzword, I think it should just be burried and forgoten about.

Right on, Tom, I think it deserves more publicity too! And I have the perfect way to give it publicity! Take The War on Terrorism link off of the front page, and replace it with a link to Geek Fighter!
