Dude! That was so unfair! It's not like everyone wants to vote considering other votes. And sometimes we want to hear what other people have to say about it. Just because a few people were doing that desnt mean that you have to blame everyone. Maybe setup a thing where you cant vote unless you watch the movie. Have the server indicate if the page has been visited yet, and if it hasnt, then dont allow the person to vote. Jeeze. I couldn't even check the score of my own movie.

On a sidenote-when I moused over some of the menu's in the most recent category-my system slowed down :. No clue as to why.

There is a new voting system called BLAMS/SAVES - if a movie has a high score ppl are voting high, regardless - if a movie has a low score ppl vote low, regardless - otherwise they don't get any points!!

Maybe setup a thing where you can't vote unless you watch the movie.

Impossible! (with current technology)

Have the server indicate if the page has been visited yet, and if it hasnt, then dont allow the person to vote.

Ppl would CLICK - then back-up their browser again.

Jeeze. I couldn't even check the score of my own movie.

You will be emailed your score IF it gets blammed. Also you can see the reviews in your Grounds Gold Menu at any time - just click "Sign-In!"

I am done with Newgrounds, I used to come ther everyday, but the "improvements" in the voting system and the slow servers are the last straw. I am gone and I am not voting anymore and will only visit maybe once a week if i get a chance. I am taking link for NG off of my bookmarks. It sucks here now.

I think this is a GREAT move (to have the whistle) based on the assheads that do the popup-loops and the self-voten5 tricks. I've e-mailed Tom personally on such things before, this makes it quick and easy...
Maybe too easy? yes, it's possible to abuse this too! What is stolden and who is allowed to repost from another site? We've seen games taken from webs sites become post of the week only two weeks ago. "Owl Post" was it ripped from MugglesPride.com? (It gives a link to that site within the game, where the game is featured) What is borrow and what is stolden?
Also how much porn is "TOO much" porn? maybe the popups should be banned! Some of the popups that have been displayed on NG are banned in many parts of the world. So a fair question is "how lewd is TOO bad?"

My first pot on the BBS, so be kind people. I was curious myself about taking down the reviews... that's a good basis of what to expect while waiting for a download, I typically don't wait long, as I'm on cable, but I still read about 3-4 reviews while waiting. I suggest if you're going to keep the reviews off, you might as well keep the voting score from sight too, until after the vote.

Let me get this straight: You can't trust the users to vote fairly and impartially but you can trust them with a button that will - if clicked enough - rip a submission from the pages of NG? Ok, yeah...?

Part of the beauty of the Blam system is that, if the movie is malicious, stolen, or excessively offensive, we'll take care of it. The people will get rid of it without the involvement of overseers.

So if people allready get rid of crap with the blam button, how come i see alot of porn/unapropriate stuff from people who get people to vote high? They get saved by asking/begging people to "vote 5 for porn" and "hey its my birthday so vote 5" and "Im a clock/anti-clock so vote 5 becuse I make fun of them" and so its still on here, This system will alow people to point out these movies and get them off here asap.

Sure there are bugs in the system, but can you tell me theres something in the world without bugs? Sorry you don't feel this new system is working. The best you can do is suggest some alternative system.

:sure you guys are.

Just relax dude. The clock crew just makes movies we don't vote on certain things. Check out the site you might learn more about us www.clockcrew.cc :)

please note, I am not talking bad about you as a person, or a clock or anything about the CC, im just pointing out some stuff.

one more point is there are some clocks who do use porn/unapropriate/unmoral/downright wrong images and concepts in their films. so this system should clean up these people.

Eww gross.
secondly your sick, this is a movie site, not a porn site.
Porn should not be on this site (btw why are there porn adds all over this site?)

I don't believe they mean Too much, rather "Any" porn would be enough to push the button.

maybe the popups should be banned! Some of the popups that have been displayed on NG are banned in many parts of the world.

Im all for banning the popup's myself, but im sure this is what pays for the site. They could posibly offer a 'non-popup' site for platnum members, but how many people would be willing to pay for this option?

Are you guys insane? Isn't there a limit on the number of updates to a site? I mean, c'mon! What about the many hapless members who havent logged on in a few days? Will they recognize the place?

Im thinking you guys had a list of new years resolutions for 2002, and you are just now getting to them all. Am I right?

ANyhow, the place is still the best thing on the net. So take a break every once in a while, will ya? (But don't put off the server upgrade!) :))

-Travis

I agree. I haven't been here in a while, and the place looks quite different. The Under Judgement thing is a pretty good idea. This prevents people from BLAMing it immediately, but it can get kind of annoying. Oh, and the new popup info boxes are pretty good too. But what's with the Batting Averages? Is that like the average score of every Flash movie they've made or something?

Yeah, and that "Blow the whistle" button is absurd. Okay, great! Let's take away the viewing of scores, but add a button to tear submissions from NG! That won't be abused a bit, right? Not likely. Blow the whistle is a terrible idea. If it's offensive, don't view it. If you didn't know and you do view it, close it. It's that simple.

excuse me, but I don't believe you understand how it works.. if someone makes an offencive movie a person viewing it can push the button and "blow the whistle" it then gets flaged so an administrator can view the movie, its not automatically taken off the portal..

Learn the facts first before you pass judgement.

I think it's all a waste of time.

If people are going to vote without watching the movie they won't care what if they can already see the score or not

I agree 100% with this system now. I just didn't agree with the things shade_v2 said. I know there are some "bad clocks" but if you see any clocks doing anything against the rules on NGs then they aren't real clocks. I love this system now, and the blow the whistle thing. Also Ki1no was just a joke, we didn't really attack his movies, it's just a villian you can say.

There should be this kinda thing for the BBS, I know I spend much more time there then the portal nowadays. It can be like

-excessivly pornagraphic post/topic
-racist/offenseive post/topic
-spam post/topic

It beats having moderators.
