Great to see everything has been going well with this new system and life is posting here. I'd love to be a part of the leadership team again if you'd have me. I'm sure I could provide some input to benefit this place and get it thriving once again. I'll hit the forums right now.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

October has flown by, it seems. Take your time re-opening the NGDD and work out everything important. We'd rather get it right the first time than screw it up.

I've been lurking and i think it's time the NGDD came back.

I feel as if now the NGDD is now officially re-open I should show my face a little and get to know the users who I'm going to be working with. Granted a know a few users from my past, the NGPD, the EGB and even back in the days of the NGDD, but I've missed out on quite a lot. Haha.

Lizzardis - BBS Department
Alfraydo - Audio Department

Why thank you DS! I am happy of your decision and can ensure you that you will not be disappointed with my work. Yes, I don't post as much as I should nowadays, however whenever I do, my posts I feel are mature and detailed. I thank you for letting me be a part of this club as a leader. I once looked up to users such as this position and now I'm finally glad I can be here.

Please also welcome back NGDD Leader... TheThing!

Welcome back my friend! :D

It would be nice, but like DS said, the NGDD is about protecting NG and making it a better place. I couldn't personally care whether we got nice little gifts or not. I mean yes of course it would be nice, but I'm used to the NGPD and the EGB where I don't get any more of a reward than "Thank You" and that my friends, is reward enough for me!

However, if Tom can supply some prizes, then that will make things a bit nicer for those users who would like a bit of motivation in order to do good to NG. Maybe it will become a habit then if they get rewarded for it!

Thank you Alfraydo. I see you're in my department of the BBS. Well done in making it in. I would like to say that if you have any questions, or even anything to which you feel I'm doing wrong or even NOT doing, please do not be afraid to PM me. I reply to PM's whenever I get them, so do not be afraid I wont reply.

You would have the choice of either keeping your points or "cash it in" per say.

That makes a lot more sense actually. Saving up, or blowing your points on something. Not only would that teach users to save up, but it would also encourage them to do more helpful things throughout NG in order to get what they want!

Then again, why am I repeating what DS has already told us? Jeez I'm tired tonight. That's what college life does to you. Haha.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Mature, lengthy and good quality posts are what's needed on the BBS. Moreso now than ever. I feel as if the BBS is on a decline, especially in General and I feel as if we should work as hard as we can in order to try and get it back up again.

We'll only make a slight difference, but last time I checked, and I'm not that good at Math, but a slight difference was still more than no difference!

I'd like to thank DS again for giving me the position of BBS Dept. Leader. You will NOT be let down. However as it stands now, it is officially the 2nd Nov 2010 here in the UK, so the NGDD to me has been open for 24 hours. I'd like to wish a good luck to the NGDD this time around. I would hope with this reboot, things will go smoothly.

Remember as well... Just because I'm not posting, doesn't mean I'm not lurking. ;)

You have a lot of one-liners in your posts. Though, I believe the NGDD can help you with improving your post quality. :)

So... create an account on our forums and I'll add you to our roster.

November 1st was the expected date, but I think it is better that we get everything ready first. I'm working on a thread to help the NGDD Dept. Leaders manage their Departments and getting some other things worked out.

I assure you, the NGDD will be open in good time. We've received lots of applications in the past month. We're growing and that is definitely good!

Let's generate some discussion here, how's the portal been lately? I see Lizzardis mentioned something about the BBS posts in the General forum degrading. That's pretty interesting though I think I must agree with that statement because I have noticed that the BBS has been getting lower in terms of post quality.

Portal has been pretty much typical. I have no major complaints. Just a few stolen flashes here and there, some spam, but overall quality.

General has gone downhill steadily. A lot of reaction images and other general 4chan mannerisms have invaded and become common. Post quality is better than it has been in the past but there's a lot that can be improved. I would know, I visit General a lot. I feel that one-liners will never leave General.

A few interesting topics, however. My favorite over the last couple weeks was the "What NG Sees as a helpful Review" topic.

Yes spam.....KK made themselves known during summer. But spam groups are absent now. I have a question can I post abusive reviews here? I have done so in the NGPD thread but it is a touchy subject there.

The portal has been same as it has been. The usual spam here and there, though no significant changes that I am aware of.

I would have to agree with Lizzardis regarding the BBS, particularly General. Post quality is quite low, and should really be improved beyond one-liners.

I would like to bring up an update of the Audio Portal, if I may. The Top 5 is pretty good this week in my opinion; I especially enjoy AzureVixen's +- Click Clock Wood -+. Give a listen to this week's Top 5 if you haven't already!

You can always find the usual techno submissions, although there are some better than others. Just a reminder; Be sure to keep an eye out for stolen music.

I personally think General has gotten better through time. Everything was crap when I first signed up, of course, I was 14 and thrived in it. Haha. Went back to my early post history, clicked the first thread I saw and BAM! Horse ass. That's a pretty good summary of every thread back in the day. Notice how it's not locked. At least there's some threads nowadays that get a serious discussion going and the crap threads get deleted. C&C seems to be a place where people become more mature posters now too. I remember when C&C was just as popular as General and people spam posted in random topics all the time. Things are surprisingly serious around here now.

The problem with the General forums is the fact that in the years since NG has started we've pretty much depleted the world of topics. Even if a person wants to create a topic that is more up-to-date and seems as if it would make more sense in this time frame than in the past times it has been posted, a fellow user will take the liberty of jumping down their throat with a link to the past topic.

Unfortunately, this causes a problem and more users are being butthurt by the fact they can't post without being harassed. However, I do occasionally find a diamond in the rough that is worthy of being posted in. I like to stick with the Video Game forums as of recent because you can't really be pummeled too hard as video games are constantly changing.

Also, I just wanted to take this time to say hello to all the existing members and all new ones willing to join the NGDD and the cause we stand for. I would also like to thank DS for welcoming me back in and placing me once again on a leadership team to help this place thrive once again on NG. It's great to be back and I'm looking forward to working alongside the leaders as well as members in making this place fun and a comfortable place to talk about anything, as it was in the past.

Alright guys if we plan on moving the NGDD into a more thriving thread again then we need more effort from our posters. A week without a single post here is unacceptable. It doesn't matter if you post a 3-liner about something you did this week, an update on the BBS or Portal, or even just a comment of improvement. We can't go back into a state of inactivity. It doesn't look good for new applicants let alone current leaders.

Hopefully not stepping on any toes here but this is something we need to do to keep this thread from dying once again. Whether or not we haven't officially opened shouldn't stop the discussion here until the official opening of a thread begins.

Let's hear a report on the portal.

Okay, that can be arranged.
Very mixed quality as of late. There's been some stolen flashes, and crap like this:

I'd rather not rant about the garbage. The portal, overall, has been satisfactory..... merely satisfactory. Not much to write home about, although there are some interesting games. It's calm. I did find myself wasting time playing Diesel Valkyrie this morning -- it was stolen sometime last month and submitted but this one looks like it was submitted by the original author.

The BBS has been highly enjoyable. I've actually made a thread this week.

On a more personal note, I'm finally approaching level 31 -- my goal since the redesign.

This is a big deal! Passing into the 30 mark of levels is rough. The experience gain is ridiculous and it takes forever to see any advancement in levels. I myself am coming up on level 35 soon, but the path is long and becomes quite a pain after a while.

And yea, although the BBS is enjoyable lately to read I still haven't seen much worth me posting on. I should probably keep looking.

You're right AnalPenguinFarming! Excuse me for not posting.

The BBS is as enjoyable as it has been for me, although I find it harder to post when there is nothing interesting. Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough.

On an uninteresting note, I have had a decent week. Good grades overall, and an eventful Veteran's Day (Armistice Day) assembly at my school. I had played Taps at it.

What does everyone think of the winners for the Halloween competitions?

I personally found this to be very well animated. The story went on for a little too long in the middle, but the action eventually sped up and it ended good. I feel that it's deserving of 1st place for sure.

I personally didn't like this at all. I'm assuming that it's only because I have a very hard time drawing with the mouse though. I would have liked to seen a better Halloween themed game this year, but I guess there wasn't any.

Can't you just envision this in a really cool Halloween flash or even a professional Halloween cartoon that you might see on TV? Very fitting for the Halloween season if I may say so myself.

Please read this story if you have time. I was actually the one who judged the writing competition all by myself. Sentio wrote an amazing story about Pico related to Halloween. It might send chills down your spine.

I can't say I saw any games better for Halloween than the Pumpkin Carve 'n Share.
Gone Too Far Too was really good. It deserved to win. (Really catchy too.)
I haven't checked out any of the audio yet, but I'll bet that some of those are good -- my trips to the NG Audio Portal always end up being fun.

Sadly I have been addicted to TF2 so coming to NG is...rare. Even when I do come I just B/P here and there check a few threads l like then I leave for the day. About the audio portal...thing is I don't visit it at all anymore. I went maybe twice there and thats it. Maybe it's because I don't find great songs that I like. Hey got to ask is anyone from USA or UK? Most NG members are from either too.

I don't know that it necessarily deserved first place. I thought it was good, that's for sure, but maybe I just didn't get what everyone thought was so cool about it. It wasn't some mind blowing animation.

Yea I'm the same, can't draw for shit, except my inability to draw is with everything, not just a mouse lol.

I think halloween is kinda stupid, can't wait for christmas to come along. Much better holiday.

I feel kinda bad.. I forgot to post in here for quite awhile... Oops.

Anyway, I've found that the general forum can be decent to post in (recently), as long as you sift through all of the crap. But I still spend pretty much all of my forum time within the C&C.. Guess I should branch out eh? I mean, as long as you don't start posting like the majority you're fine, right?

I've also found the the flash portal's had a pretty good amount of decent flash coming in recently. Especially since the it seems the [KK] has pretty well died (knock on wood). It's either that or the community is beginning to realized "Hey we can get rid of this if we ACTUALLY VOTE 0" haha.


Sometimes the best solution is, simply, a swift kick in the ass.

Yeah... the holiday that is suppose to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ which is now all about spending money for spoiled kids. It's really not my idea of a really fun holiday even though I do enjoy it simply because of being with family and friends.

Halloween and Thanksgiving are actually my favorite holidays. Halloween because I love the scary/horror related stuff. It's my favorite thing to read, watch, play, etc... Thanksgiving because I eat several Thanksgiving meals with different parts of my family and food is my friend.

It's no fun if you think of it as the day Jesus was born. It's the one day a year where Santa Claus gives presents to all the good kids! You're mixing up your fables. :p

I love Thanksgiving too. Football, beer, good food, and nobody in the family makes an ass out of themselves for one day a year. What's not to love?

So I'm going on a date with this girl I just met on Saturday who was with a guy for 4 years until they broke up last month. They were gonna get married and everything. Gonna be interesting to see how she's handling it. I'm betting we get to the movie and she just randomly starts bawling. Lets hope she's taking it well. :p

All holidays are commercialized and are there to make money nowadays. I like Christmas because it's family time!

Halloween and Thanksgiving are actually my favorite holidays. Halloween because I love the scary/horror related stuff. It's my favorite thing to read, watch, play, etc... Thanksgiving because I eat several Thanksgiving meals with different parts of my family and food is my friend.

Thanksgiving is nice too, good food and family. I just don't get the concept of halloween, I don't know maybe I'm just a sour puss but I don't see the point.

It's no fun if you think of it as the day Jesus was born. It's the one day a year where Santa Claus

gives presents to all the good kids! You're mixing up your fables. :p

Yea nothing better than an old man created by Coca-Cola. At least the americanized version. LOL

I love Thanksgiving too. Football, beer, good food, and nobody in the family makes an ass out of themselves for one day a year. What's not to love?

Exactly why I love too my man.

So I'm going on a date with this girl I just met on Saturday who was with a guy for 4 years until they broke up last month. They were gonna get married and everything. Gonna be interesting to see how she's handling it. I'm betting we get to the movie and she just randomly starts bawling. Lets hope she's taking it well. :p

It's weird you mention this, I have one girl friend who just got out of a similar relationship 3 weeks ago, and two other girl friends who just got dumped after almost 4 years as well this week. This is an odd time of the year. I on the other hand have just met this gorgeous girl who makes me very happy, something I haven't felt in at least 6 months.

Hey man!

If you'd like to rejoin, let me know which department(s) interest you and why you'd be a good member for the NGDD. Shouldn't be too hard. ;-)

I have a question can I post abusive reviews here? I have done so in the NGPD thread but it is a touchy subject there.

I don't think we can post abusive reviews here. It follows along the same reasons why Rage's Abusive Review thread was locked. As for alerting members of stolen flash submissions, I don't believe there's a problem with that but you may want to ask Fro (Portal Dept. Leader) to verify.

Indeed all holidays are commercialized, especially Christmas. In other news, I had picked up Black Ops yesterday. Epic, to say the least.
