First of all, check out the All Your Base collection we just made. We have the original movie by Bad_CRC, in addition to 3 spoofs! I am working on getting a fourth showcased on here. Be sure to let me know if you see any that we don't have! When someone posts a movie on The Portal, they can put your username in as a referer. In other words, if you get people to post their movies to The Portal, you will get bonus experience points! The better the movie performs, the more points you get!!!
We have a TON of other opportunities for people to get involved, so listen up close!
1) Ross received a ton of response to his posting about school violence (see below). It is very apparent that our users have strong opinions concerning school violence and gun control. This is a great opportunity for our first "Flash debate".
The idea behind this was inspired by The Legacy of Gun Control, a movie currently in The Portal. The author is using Flash to state his opinion on guns. Could you have done a better job? Give it a try!
Create a movie that is either for or against guns in society. Do we have the right to bear arms? Make something good (effort, please!) and submit it to The Portal. We have no idea what the response will be, but we are curious.
2) Whenever I do a site redesign, people complain. Stop complaining and help me come up with better ideas! I am considering a frontpage that starts users off with THREE big options. Right now I am thinking "Community", "Features", and "Portal". "Community" would include stuff like news, the BBS, chatroom, cams, etc. "Features" would be in-house productions and such, while "Portal" would be the user submitted stuff. The frontpage would look something like this. What do you think of this idea?
If you could break down Newgrounds into 3 sections, what would they be and how would you group the content under each of them?
Finally, do you agree that we should ditch the frames, or do you like them?
3) Everyone can help me with this one - I am doing an article about character crossovers in Flash cartoons. Examples would include Pico making a cameo in NG Sticks 2, or Eskimo Bob appearing in The Final Slayer.
I need people to point out crossovers in The Portal. I can't remember where most of them are! I know that Scrotum the Puppy makes some appearances, as well as other characters. Wherever you see someone elses Flash character in another persons Flash movie, let me know! I want to make note of all of them!
4) The BIGFATPUSSY remix competition is still going on! Check out Bigfatpussy on mp3.com, and submit your own remixes! Winner gets a shirt!
