There's only one thing that I would like to say about your assessment process, and that is concerning my flash review history. I haven't really reviewed properly since 2007, and my reviewing wasn't to a great standard back that, so I hope you don't hold that against me.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Just made a thread about Advertisement Accounts in General. SCTE3 responded with something interesting. Should this be a concern for Tom, Wade, and the EGB as well as the NGPD?

Stolen flash:

I'm pretty sure it was on NG at one point, too. I remember playing it, and I don't play games anywhere else.

Pretty uncommon theft, but it still pops up from time to time.

I hate to act as if I'm already a member of the barracks, but this caught my eye.

I believe it's stolen, as it says it's from clickteam.com in the preloader animation, and the 'Author' doesn't seem to have any affiliation with them. The way the actual game is presented (Only in the top left, with white screen surrounding it) leads me to believe it was copied.

Don't have to be a member to report stolen content and yes that is stolen. Here is the original.

While I agree that 99% of submissions should be flash (since this is a flash orientated site), there are no rules as of yet prohibiting the movie's presence. Unless there was something extremely racist, violent, or pornographic in the video, there's nothing we can do about it.

On the upside, at least it isn't spam. It seems that the author did put some amount of effort into it.

I would say his videos fit under those two categories at least. He didn't make the videos, he simply got them from someone on youtube and added poorly done commentary to them.

How do you know what he used someone else's videos? You'd have to find out where or from whom they were stolen from in order to convince a moderator that they weren't his.

However, you may have a point with copyrighted material, because even if those are his videos, he's showing footage of a game that isn't his.

He leaves a couple of scattered clues that he likely has just taken the videos and added commentary to them.

On the Rabbit Revenge video he says the game came out on SNES instead of NES. However squinting at the screen seems to show the game is being played on an NES thing.

His second video he just seems to be leaving commentary and the such, noting little to nothing of the storyline at the start as well sadly. The start of the video shows credit to whoever actually made it as well. The video quality is incredibly crappy, that and he has no idea about what half the stuff in the game is either.

However, you may have a point with copyrighted material, because even if those are his videos, he's showing footage of a game that isn't his.

I did some snooping around, and Googling 'Beloved Underground Productions' (the name in the beginning of the video) led me here, to a website full of "Creeper Reviews", the trademark that he's using on Newgrounds. The only way we could possibly determine that these were stolen is to trace the IP address submitting the videos to Newgrounds, then trace the IP address submitting the videos to the other website featuring some of the videos and see whether or not they match.

Need to work on your posts a bit and you need to have 2,500 B/P. For now you could go join the Newgrounds Police Department.

You need to have a rank of Private (2,500 b/p) or higher to request admission. I recommend looking into the Newgrounds Police department first. Additionally, I would recommend that you lay off the 1-line and +1 posts, as they generally are frowned upon by the Elite Guard. We try to lead by example here, and we do have our sets of guidelines and rules.

Please read The Elite Guard Manifesto and The Elite Guard FAQ so you can understand who we are and what we stand for.

Thank you for your interest - and good luck with the NGPD!

Almost anyone can be accepted into the Newgrounds Police Department and you don't need as much B/P points either. That and it helps you get a better understanding of what kind of content to watch out for and flag while it is under judgment too. You can come here after getting 2,500 B/P. You already got a bronze whistle and as byteslinger said, try to work on your posting a bit.

Sorry to be a nuisance.

I wouldn't say almost anyone can be accepted in the NGPD. The requirements as far as maturity and post quality are pretty much the same as here, the main difference really remains in the number of b/p points which has a much lower requirements.

I tend to take comments about the NGPD personally, since I was the Unit Ops there for over a year.

One of the ways I think of the NGPD is as a sort of training area for future EGB personnel. Not saying that's all it is, but it definitely helps.

I'd like to address this, since it's already brought up, that my general immature posting is the main reason I was denied the first time I applied, and the reason that I'm deciding not to apply a second time. That being said, would it bother anyone if I post here from time to time as long as I'm contributing, and don't associate myself with the group?

Nah, you can post here. Anybody can report stolen flash submissions and stuff here, whether they're in the EGB or not... SCTE3 isn't and he post here fairly regularly. More than a majority of the members do, actually.

Cool with me.

Seeing as TomFulp removed those Creeper review submissions I think it is safe to say that seeing those in the future could possibly warrant a flag as they are submitting content that they did not make.

Think this is stolen.

Preloader mentions this site, and the uploader doesn't seem to be connected with them.

Pretty sure this user is simply a thief uploading stolen content from various sites since all of the submitted ones so far give credit to a different website. Also Angry Girls seems to be a ripoff of Angry Birds too and incorrect in dimension size....

Good work it must have been has the account been deleted I clicked the link lots of checking you did. I have brought another official guide for Borderlands, because the first one did not show up may end up with two guides though LOL. On the game I love using the Siren Lilith far I have only played a few missions on the game so far though.
