YouTube
It's unfortunate but thats how the internet is, you cant have all thats good with the internet without getting the bad. You have to figure that the internet is changing and we are no longer masters of the universe. People are gaining greater knowledge about being their own syndicators and companies out there are aware of that rising need and stepping up to the plate and providing people with the means to satisfy the urge. I said it many times before in that NG should have /should provide better ways of syndicating things. If we arent going to provide people a chance to snag and port things then people will find someone else that will. Thats not really youtube's fault or anyone .. you have to change with the demand and if theres one thing i hate about newgrounds is that its slow on every punch. We have some awesome things here and alot of people wont ever find out about them because we are trapped in a bubble of a site.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD TOM QUIT BEHEMOTH AND COME BACK TO NEWGROUNDS.

the end.

I kind of want to say you should argue about it, but they probably count it as obscene material...which makes sense to me... still, funny shirt.

funny thing is the teacher googled it to find out what it was

In a perfect world, when you upload to the portal, it'd have extra fields or whatever to spit out some code to upload to youtube or place as a self contained module on your blog/site. Maybe NG could build a little shell or watermark or something. The key is that when you are ready to make the debut of your beloved movie, you can knock out two birds with one stone.. YOU can be the one greenlights the syndication.

That's a brilliant idea. New-Tube? You-grounds?

Wouldn't it make sense that Flash Video's wouldn't be compressed as videos any more either? And they would stay in their original vector form? That'd be chill too, but nah.

Also, two girls one cup

I'm pretty sure they have some plans in the works that are moving in that direction, at least some helps to get mass exposure for your stuff.

What I'd really love to see is a wrapper that lets you update versions of your game across all the sites that have stolen it, I hate seeing old versions of my games on other sites when there's a newer shinier version available.

It would require some specific coding tactics, but I think sites like kongregate have proven that artists will do it for the boost in flexibility it would allow.

Syndication
Newgrounds is an island, graced by original games and animations. While there are a few things that come in and out, I don't know if Newgrounds would want to change their relationship with the rest of the web. Things that happen on Newgrounds are original and quirky, making the trip here worth it for that alone.

Does Newgrounds want to join the landmass of syndication and sharing? I don't know, it works as an island I think. But it would be awesome to see what Newgrounds could do outside it's normal comfort range.

I suppose at least people would talk about watching stuff 'on newgrounds' as they do on youtube, but it'll also mean more noobs and emokids ranting about how naruto is better than dbz.
But as Luis said, you can't get the good without the bad.

RE: Syndication

I agree with you jmtb in that i like the cool kids table aspect of NG and that you are like in this cool 'undergound' culture and stuff that is free from the tackiness of annoying youtubes and myspace userpages. However with NG evolving and flash taking a greater slice of the entertainment pie on the web i think it is foolish to continue the island aspect of Newgrounds because users are growing more demanding and maybe more lazy in that they dont want to visit your bookmarked game on ng.. they are so excited with your game/movie that they dont want to just give someone a link.. they want to be able to snag it and put it on their youtube/myspace/whatever.. i think the 'cool' thing about that is with the revenue sharing system in place.. you'll be able to monetize some of your things a little better... then maybe just maybe us animators can stop starving.

I do think it'd be important to retrofit things or have some sort of catch all to address issues that bomtoons raised.. game updates, bug fixes and shit is pretty key in a game environment.. if newgrounds had some sort of feature built into its submission process where it would like have a mini sentry attached that would go back and talk to the ng portal and patch games universally when a fix comes in.. something semi-similar to youtube's video player... when they reskin it its just universally fixed

Rich Internet Applications

I was looking at the recently released Photoshop Express, which excited me to view the possibilities. While it does not show anything that I have not seen implemented in Flash before, it does put it all together into a single application with server support. Also, from my test drive, it is horribly slow, which may be due in part to the Flex framework that they used. My personal experience with Flex is that it is easy to implement a nice interface, but the drawback is that the components are quite large; therefore, it ends up passing a longer load and more lag to the user. Combine that with the intensive processing the image application is performing anyways, there is a problem. Ultimately, though, it makes me more eager to see the application/tools that Aviary and others will have available. What are your opinions of these rich internet applications?

RE: Internet Apps

I also find this exciting. I loved (and still love I guess) the old version. Incredible for a flash program. I want to see many more things like this. If you bring programs to the internet, then money doesn't have to be made from selling the product, you make it from sponsorship and advertising. I'd rather see that then poor kids having to shell out hundreds of their parent's dollars just to be creative.

I'm not really here to make a big deal about it and rant for several paragraphs about my inability to backup a saved file, but it's a nice reminder to anyone who is working on something.

I own a Mac. Maybe you can talk to Adobe for me as to why Mac and PC licenses for Adobe products are not interchangeable across platforms.

Well, Adobe prices are the same (I think) but in most stores, Mac is cheaper (usually but that always depends on how mean the shop owner is) , but the availability seems to be less common. But Macs are more expensive when you buy them, but you are paying for speed and convenience (Thank god for spell check). I bought mine off eBay, but I looked through a couple of shops first before realizing I had more important things to spend money on (Like Warcraft) and just went for eBay. My version works perfectly and it was hassle free buying it. The shops I looked in either had the Mac or PC version, not both, so it entirely depends on discounts and store prices. So there you are. A completely unconclusional, long, boring, stupid and pointless post about how some shops are cheaper than others.

How is spending money on a game more important than spending on a computer that will run it better?

That's probably the reason Newgrounds stopped working at work all of a sudden.
I thought my job somehow blocked it because I spent to much valuable work time here. :P

You misunderstand me. First of all, it was a joke. It wasn't very funny, but it was a joke. Second, I already have a mac, we are talking about flash for the mac. Anyway, my uncle gave my dad a mac and my whole family can use it. I's an X-Demo 6G iMac. 2GB RAM, 360GB ROM, and we have an external hard drive for time machine. I'm using another iMac I bought for £50 (G3) off eBay.

She was hot! Also, congrats!

Excited about learning something new
I have been afraid of learning A* for quite some time now. I don't understand why though, I guess I would just watch the examples of it in use and deciding it would be too difficult. A stupid reason, I know.
Anyway, I decided to give it another try today and read this tutorial about it and guess what? It's not really that difficult. I managed to learn pretty quickly.
I love me for learning that and I'm so excited to put in use in games.
To start a discussion, have you ever been excited about something you've just learned?
