That account was spamming right? with that many nearly identical games it was close to it. Cookie cutter flashes. Wonder how may more will end up there?
A good majority of the cookie cutter account submissions likely will in the coming days and weeks. While there is almost 1,300 entries in there today it still doesn't beat the record for most blams which was 1,819 on June 25, 2004. Who knows though, might hit the record sometime with the cookie cutter submissions being removed.

Do you think that it is wade going on a mass deleting spree again. I think I remember him doing so back in later 2010 - early 2011. I remember chatting with the NGPD lot about how they all had around 16 unexplained blams appear on there stats.

Nope, Tom is, he's been on the fence about it for awhile. Glad to see these submissions are being removed.

I'm sure that everybody is, except the people who submitted them. Are we getting extra blams does anybody know? I havn't really been keeping track of my stats so I couldn't really say.

Nope, not getting blams for any of the content being removed. If we were I imagine some people would experience a large jump in blam points.

Well, I did gain a larger than normal jump in Blams, considering I had one before heading out to see friends and 9 when I checked in again this morning. The more recent ones that I voted 0 on may still have counted for Blam purposes, which was nice.

Not bad, seems I got 6 blams which isn't too bad either.

I still have no idea if my blams went up, I guess I should keep a closer eye on how many I have but I like to basically ignore them and get a surprise when to roster comes out, this is unless I know i'm coming up to a milestone.

Yea I noticed that also. I mentioned something to Wade about it but never got an answer.

Seems to me like I got no blams at all, and I vote 0 on all those shovelware flashes when they are under judgment.

He keeps submitting these crappy ass games twice a day, all with mochiads. But I think this entry takes the cake. I really invite you to play it and figure out what's wrong with the game. It's completely beyond me how his games keep passing.

Nevermind Wade took care of it lol.

But this allows me to tell you with absolute certainty, I did no get the blam points for that account getting deleted. I voted 0 on at least 20 of his flashes while they were under judgment.

Also, the EGB is now 40,000 posts long. Well, until an inactive account gets deleted and some of the old posts in here are lost or whatever, but for now you guys can all pat yourselves on the back in the knowledge that you've passed another milestone in keeping crap out of Newgrounds.

For the most part I noticed when that account uploaded anything unlike other shovelware accounts they never categorized the game into the correct category. It just seemed that they were uploading the content but to lazy to categorize it sadly.

40,000 posts... That's a lot of posts for this crew.

That particular flash was a quiz game with math problems. It would show a math problem and give you 4 possible answers, only if you swiped your mouse over the answers, all would disappear other than the right answer.

I highly doubt this was intentional because the way the scoring was set up you just got 500 points for every right answer, no matter the time taken or how many wrong answers you swiped over.

It gave me a good laugh about the lazy, lame ass attempt at flash. And also proved to me that no one actually plays or watches under judgment flashes more than 3 seconds. Otherwise his crap would have never passed judgment.

*Raises glass* good show, ladies (well, lady) and gentlemen. Good show.

40000 is quite a landmark! *gulps champagne*

Great news regarding the official alteration of the submission guidelines to ban the submission of shovelware, here's hoping it spells the doom to crappy, cookie-cutter clones being submitted twice a day, every day by particular authors.

We can only hope. I think that we were all sick of the genericness of those games, as it turns out so was Tom. I wonder what the person who made the first ever one would think about all this and his/her creation being slightly altered then spread across the Internet in a vein attempt to make some quick cash? Personally, I'd be quite pissed off.

Yes it's been in the works for a while now.

What it really comes down to is fairness. NG is a website that promotes individual artists who put effort and time into their games. By letting people submit generic, mass produced crap on the website, it undermines what NG is for, and also takes away earned ad revenue from those artists who actually deserve it.

It's nice to make it official, even though it had been an unwritten rule now for a while.

This, very much this!

Also check the obituaries for today! Wonder if if we can break the record of 1,819 entries being deleted/blammed in one day. A little over 150 away from it.

First the shovelware accounts all get assed (we're at 2600+ deleted flashes now :D ), and now my childhood gets some closure too. COULD TODAY GET ANY BETTER?

I was sorely disappointed.

This game kept me hooked when I was 15. Now, ten years later, it just looks exactly the same. Which in today's standards is lame. It was cool back then, but the wait vs the improvement really didn't do it for me. I stopped playing after 3 minutes.

Ah, when I added that link, it was just the obituaries link instead of that specific day. Also may want to look in the right top corner too of the obituaries for yesterday, 7 pages worth of shovelware was removed.

Doesn't that make it abusive? As in site-removable abusive?
