The FAQ page on voting power, although lacking, does still say that voting power is based on XP and B/P so it's probably still there, just not displayed anywhere, although it should be.

Will hopefully be fixed in time. They have other things to get done and attend to fixing up at the moment. For the time being I'm OK with it just showing base vote power instead of total vote power.

Holy jumping mother o' god in a side-car with chocolate jimmies and a lobster bib! Loving the redesign so far, familiar yet different. It will take a lot of getting used to, particularly the changes to the Portal (resisting temptation to use Classic mode until I get a feel for the new one) but overall, once the kinks are worked out, I'm sure it'll be fantastic.

I'm very confused as well as to how the whole voting system and b/p system now works.

I'll have to do a little exploring.

Overall, I think the new look is great. But I agree with byte, these level icons suck.

I'm not sure, but from the looks of it that isn't actually changed, even if things look different. A few visual hints are slightly modified and in some cases lost, but the underlying system appears to be identical. As for the icons, I'm not too sold on them, but a few are very nice. They fit the design better than the old ones, I believe, although the older B/P rank icons seem to look fine here.

Just for the record: the B/P modifiers are broken right now, but they'll be back up as soon as the staff get around to fixing them. You've not lost any B/P or anything; it's just not counting towards your overall voting power right now.

It's gonna take me a long time to get used to this redesign but I'm a fan of it so far! It's good that we get an entire page just for Under Judgement flashes -- by the looks of it, it's harder to simply blind vote your way through them since the filesizes aren't displayed at first glance. I'm still getting accustomed to the whole thing so far, looks like a whole new website, much bigger change than the 07 redesign. And look at these sexy new emotes.

Haven't seen the levels yet, can't say I like or dislike them yet.

I know that it still counts for B?P but just not shown -- but I don't see any option for me to report a flash as stolen or anything, it just shows an advertisement, the pico voting bar and the review box. Did I just miss seeing something or is it omitted for the time being?

I suspect that it's B/P rankings. Since I'm at the tank, though I'd like to know when the fighter jet is, considering I've passed 100,000 B/P and I still haven't got it :P

Alright, you may have noticed that there is no option to whistle stuff at the moment. If you spot something that needs whistling (flash-wise, not reviews), report it here and let me look it over. Since I have the hotline to God, I may as well use it. Think of me as a priest of Newgrounds.

Usual protocol, either post in here, or PM me with link to NG submission, plus links to where it is stolen from, or good reasoning, otherwise.

Will do. All hail Grand Priest Coop.

From what I've hear they are going to iron out some of the minor bugs as they go along. I was worried with the whistles that they would clean everybody's slate and we'd all end up with normal again. It's taken me over two years and I still don't have a silver whistle, so I would not have been most pleased.

What most of us have always wanted, flash mods, are finally being added. Whistles are being removed because it could be abused, I guess. I'm not sure why they would remove whistles before they have added the flash mods, though.

Flash Mods are going to be added and a diffrent system I think, also at the moment, just ask a Genre mod to add the tag "Deletion" to it if it breaks the rules.

As i couldn't find a 'blow the whistle' button i just pm'd Wade with the info i normally would put in the explanation box.

Wait. They LISTENED! OMG

About freakin damn time we got some flash mods.

We'll have to come up with a system for everyone in the Barracks to abide by then when content is found to be reported.

My suggestion is that whoever finds the flash first should notify a flash mod (once these exist) and then notify the barracks here, so that no else messages the flash mod. Otherwise we'd end up spamming their inbox.

Maybe the flash mods will come from this group and then they will know to check here often for reported rule breaking flashes.

They're really rough around the edges, wouldn't be surprised if these are just placeholders for something later on. Also, is that an F-14 Tomcat? Big upgrade over the blades and hammers of the old design, eh?

B/P ranking? As far as I know that still works perfectly normal, albeit with a temporary removal of B/P modifiers (I assume it's temporary) and without the option to flag due to Flash mods, which is certainly a great idea - although I'd think it would make sense to have both systems and treat it like reviews.

Ever since the whistle was removed, albeit temporarily, the user 3DS has been submitting stolen flash. It even says "I DID NOT MAKE THIS GAME..." etc.

Is voting 0 the same as whistling for now?

Voting 0 just means "I want that the flash doesn't pass". At the end of the month Tom will introduce flash portal mods who take care of such flashes, and the flagging of flashes will then work similiar to the flagging of reviews. For now, genre mods give such submissions the tag "deletion", so that it will be dealt with. In this case, I did that and locked the tag, so that the author can't change it.

Yes, they can do this. That has been implented with the redesign, to make sure that authors who abuse the system by giving their flashes unsuiting tags can't change them back when a genre mod gives the flash correct tags. For becoming one, simply send a pm to Tom. You are an icon mod, so it makes sense when you can give flashes also the right genre and good search tags.

Actually, genre mods have been able to lock tags ever since Tom's original recruitment. The only difference prior to redesign was that if a genre mod edited the submission's details, it would automatically lock the tags which was fine with me either way since my tags always matched to the tagging guidelines which I wrote myself. Still, now it's just a matter of locking tags on spam submissions. I wouldn't worry about anything else.

Still not sure about the new level icons, when I level up I will get what looks like the ghost from Ghostbuster for level 43. Not a patch on the old one. I like the new levels the retro look is cool reminds me of the old levels of 2006. I just miss my old level and the cool voting bar is now gone shame.

Do not view these flashes. I set the volume to very low, as I hadn't put on my headphones, and I'm glad I did not wear the headphones.

Those two flashes are an exact replica of each other, and when opened, show the default SS preloader. When you click the play icon, it blasts sound that is very, very, very loud and it shows the print message box. (Hovering over the smiley that says "Hey [expletive deleted]! Click me to join." is replaced by "Help us DESTROY newgrounds" is also another clue.) If you use a browser that does not allow you to close tabs or windows unless one action is finished, or if you're not using Google Chrome, then this is what will happen (I had the misfortune of using Maxthon, but the luck of not using headphones)

The print dialogue will show.
» When you try to close the window, you can't, as it'll tell you to cancel or print.
»» When you cancel the action, another print dialogue opens.
»»» And the cycle repeats again.
Apart from that, there is sound loud enough to probably make you go deaf. It was loud even when the volume was low.

Another thing that set me off was when I visited the SS forums, there was no topic about the flash there; usually there are a list of flashes in a particular board, but these two were not listed.

I immediately knew that this user was not a part of the Soup Squad.

Don't view that flash. It hurts me to think someone could've done this.

Since I don't see a whistle area on the under judgement submissions, I'll post this here. I'm pretty sure this submission is stolen because the user just signed up today, and it looks like he just copied something from hentai-flash.com (especially considering there's a link to it in the corner). Now I have no proof that it's stolen, but the signs certainly point to it and there are a lot of red flags going up. You guys can check it out if you want, here's the flash:

Same, I agree. But what I think about the re-design is that it's all vampt up and has changed to a better design. I just think they lacked on the level up icons also, I don't like how people can also have a different picture above their level, that's what I liked about the icons being your pic is that it separated it from every other forums out there.

The annoying thing here is that I can find no actual traces of identity on either the NG account or the website it's come from. In cases like this, the only thing you can really do is e-mail said website and ask them yourself if that flash should be here or not. Which I'd rather not do, since it looks like one of those sites that'll put you on a mailing list no matter how much you stress you don't want to be on one. >: /

This lack of a whistle on submissions begins to get to me... Some guy just submitted two Flashes that are the same basic thing, and said thing includes gay porn and an attempt to force the printer to print... Something.

Don't click play from the preloader... You get the gay porn and it keeps trying to print something. I didn't print, just closed out Firefox, so I don't know what'll print out, but... Well, yeah. So what's the procedure now without the Whistle? I'm not part of this whole EGB thing anymore, so I don't pay much attention...
