*sniff* Goodbye, Troma. You were a great partner for NG.

Man, I see they've been with you for a long time now!!!

And yay, good to hear there will be no more porn ads! Now my friends can shut up about it!

BTW, right now, I'm in New York for a few days for a wedding.

TOM!

Newgrounds has been around for quite awhile. I mean I still remember when it was PICO and Telletubby Fun Land. The site has been through a lot. And now we get this news.

What's going on in your head now? SPEECH SPEECH!

I'll also do my best to support NG in this critical time. I have been here for awhile now. I will not let it be ended.

I'm glad you're trying to reduce the porn ads. I'll definately click on more adds when it doesn't cause a cascade of windows with naked women... That Feardotcom ad that kept popping up was quite annoying, but while I was complaining about it, my roommates heard the title and rented the movie... so I ended up watching it. Talk about irony.

Good Luck Tom!

I'll definitely support your sponsors if you can put cleaner ads on the site. It'd probably be a good idea to incorporate "pay-per-click" ads, since not all of us have a pay stub. :P

I know people hate the idea of forced banner-clicking, but I think one click for a day is reasonable. Also consider taking away reviewing (or even voting) priveleges from non-users. They get away with crap reviews and unreasonable votes.

Keep up the good work Tom!

Hello everyone, i have a question what do you do to get ranked... because right now i am still a civilian.I am still trying to improve my website but the damn website were i created my site isnt letting me do any improvements to it so it will always be a crappy little website but still visit it. Tons of viewers have seen my website a couple days after it was created well goodbye

Hey Tom i think you should get rid of some of the pop-ups that interupt some flash games and movies. Because they sometimes make you miss a good part of the movie or they sometime make you get killed in a game..It would be REALLY REALLY cool if you got rid of the pop-ups..Other then that the newgrounds site is THE BEST FRIGGIN THING TO HAPPEN EVER!!

getting a couple of Pay per click adds and adding them in the top right corner (like 3 diff ones) and say PPC under them so people know and click them. ya thatd be pretty good...

So this basically means that even if we support Troma still, we won't necessarily be supporting Newgrounds? Well, that's kinda weird... Speaking of "clean" ads, there aren't too many on this site... Should we also expect that to change or what?

I'm glad Newgrounds is breaking away from its sponsor, it shows the site is doing great, and will definitely be able to support itself.

Well, Tom, I read "The History of Newgrounds" when I signed up, and I know what you and newgrounds have gone through, but I truely belive that you can make it on your own.

As for the sound FX, I personaly belive that you should go with not taking WAV files.

A long time ago, I remember seeing a notice that said you guys were not willing to make movies or websites for customers.

And now you need money...

Since you guys are awesome at Flash AND most sites are Flash now...why don't you guys get paid doing something you love?

It is very important that users support our advertisers. Right now you may have noticed an increase in adult banners on the site. It is great for you to support these (please do!), but ultimately we would like to generate more of our revenue from "clean advertisers". The more you visit and support our clean advertisers, the more we can promote them in place of adult ads.

:The more we can prove ourselves to mainstream advertisers, the cleaner we can make the ads on NG. So to sum it all up, support our sponsors! :)


Remember - your support will improve the performance of the site, as we need the money for increased bandwidth and upgrades!

Finnaly some clean advertising ! I was bored of the "Amateur Girls !!! Click here to see them naked !"

I'm gonna click it (the clean advertising) until it explodes. An HURRAY! for NG, people !!! Support it the best you can !!!

I could really use some custom flash games for my site, and I also happen to do hosting. Maybe we could arrange something Tom?
