"Personal attacks towards other Flash authors will result in deletion."Dunno if deletion is necessary, but this is still a personal attack against a reviewer.

Ex.. you know we're homies.. but this "reviewer" has left over 50 derogatory reviews on my crew's movies. Nothing productive. No artistic insight or production advice. No useful criticism. nearly EVERY ONEof these rules.

You obviously knew this, since you recognized his name as a reviewer. Our mission statement is to spread our love of animation. But if someone wants to tango... well, we'll tango too.

I'm not going to defend nor decry my team's reaction to the situation. But the flash was funny as hell and you people need to get off your soap boxes and enjoy life for Christ's sake.

BTW.. When are you going to start a club that slams reviewers who have contributed NOTHING to this community for verbally attacking animators because they don't share their tastes in humor or art? I'm not talking about sincere reviews with future tips and constructive feedback. I'm referring to personal attacks, which you supposedly oppose.

What up PopTart! :D

but this "reviewer" has left over 50 derogatory reviews on my crew's movies. Nothing productive. No artistic insight or production advice. No useful criticism. nearly EVERY ONEof these rules.

If you have a problem with his reviews, why hasn't anyone asked for constructive advice from in a reply? And if his review is useless, mark it as such. If it''s abusive, mark it as such. You have to admit, that most of your crew submits poor quality stuff on purpose, y'know? If they had put real effort into everything they submit and he did that, then you'd have a point that I'd argue right along side you.

I'm not going to defend nor decry my team's reaction to the situation. But the flash was funny as hell and you people need to get off your soap boxes and enjoy life for Christ's sake.

Actually, I didn't find it funny. I found it tastless, rude, and mean-spirited. Notice, though, that it's the only one I reported and I left the others alone. That's the only one I felt crossed the line. That's ok, right? If the mods agreed, they'd remove it, but that's why I posted it here. To ask their opinion, just like every other post I put here. If they disagree, that's fine, y'know?

I mark their reviews accordingly. Sometimes, I send them a PM. Once I start submitting my own work, I'll be hiring you guys to harass them, so chill.

And if you don't, then I'll let your little secret out, PopTart.

This site likes to front page that Zone guy's shit with tentacle raped teenage superheroes. Did any of you try to flag that?

I appreciate what you guys are trying to accomplish. Really. I just don't get your process here...

Ok where to start. The Authors comments say, 'Meet 3 new adorable characters in the New Flash Game - Yami Yami' when this game is actually titled Food Shoot. Not to mention absolutely no sign of BrightSightTeam in the credits and what do you know, it's a first submission from an 3 day old account. That and the fact that Bored.com have their own Newgrounds account. This has all the earmarks of being Stolen.

Yes brother... but in the same vein as Superbad or The Hangover... tasteless humor is enjoyed by some. And as long as it's rated appropriately... and hasn't broken the guidelines for submission.. I don't know what this group's interest is.

I think I can explain: the EGB's primary goal is to keep Newgrounds balanced. There are a set of hard-and-fast rules that can never be broken, such as those regarding child porn, racism and infringement of ownership. Then there are the social guidelines where we get into the grey area of the immortal question of "what is art?".

When dealing with a social site like this, where everyone and anyone has the right to submit work, you are bound to encounter work that may not break any "hard" rules, but depending on a point of view, may or may not be acceptable to you. Along that line, over time we will see some users develop a history of what they design and what they upload. Some take the time and effort to make a decent flash, while others feel that a spinning picture with a looped sound and flashing lights is sufficient. It is not always about content - it's also about presentation and effort.

This site likes to front page that Zone guy's shit with tentacle raped teenage superheroes. Did any of you try to flag that?

Good example of what I mean. Yes, Zone's stuff is definitely adult, and rated as such. But it's original work, with decent animation quality, a story line (of sorts) and obvious effort to be funny. Some people like it, others don't, yet it remains on the site because of the general quality and effort of the flash.

I appreciate what you guys are trying to accomplish. Really. I just don't get your process here...

We're just trying to keep the peace. In a free society, we still have rules for the greater good. Newgrounds is part of that society, and as such, needs to mirror those rules. You may have the right to free speech, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea to repeatedly drop the "n-word" while walking through Compton (Los Angeles) - some will find that offensive and teach you the error of your ways. As it is here - the Elite Guard tries to keep the balance between the freedom of expression, the enforcement of site rules and what is minimally socially acceptable to all users. It's not a perfect science, and we will always encounter borderline situations where our direction may not please everyone - but we do the best we can.

As such, we do always accept constructive criticism and civilized posts, such as yours.

Hope this helped - thanks for asking!

Greetings to The Elite Guard Barracks,

I noticed that the flag feature of Newgrounds has been removed and was told that I could post submissions I feel like flagging here. However, I was wondering how that's going to affect/change the Whistle status. Or does flagging concern Whistle status anymore? Has flagging on NG become something users have to report to the admin rather than an action they can take themselves by just clicking the flag button?

Really appreciate it if this could be clarified. Thanks.

The staff currently have the flagging system somewhere on their list of "things to do" although it hasn't been a priority of theirs in quite a while thanks to this thread. This is basically the substitute to the flagging system until it arrives.

There's been no word that the new flagging feature will affect whistle status or blam/save ratios once it arrives. Feel free to post anything you come across that breaks the game/movie guidelines here.

This is an embedded youtube video. It's screen capture of someone playing a game. There is no animation or created content here.

The first 'episode' is similar, but there's about 15 clicks worth of intro before the start button and youtube embed comes on.

Besides the obvious site links embedded in the image, this probably falls under (I think) "Do not submit pictures in a slide show format with no interactivity."

"Final project for my motion graphics class, made during my final semester of the Interactive Multimedia Developer program at Algonquin College. While the client (Fido Mobile) is real, this project is not actually affiliated with them; their likeness/brand was used solely to provide a foundation for the project."

Not truly an ad, it's a project for their class. I'm letting it stay.
