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!

I like the look of the new. site thingy. Frames are good.

Redesign:

Like the idea of getting rid of the infernal chaos on the site, converting to a startup page with 3 choises is goodie!. But i'm not too thrilled about the design...

If I had it my way, I'd make it look less like a web page, if you know what i'm getting at... Pretty hard to explain this. But how's about just having a dark grey background, whith some blured objects representing each category joined in some way, with text appearing when you move the cursor over it?? I feel that newgrounds today has kind of a kindergarden look to it (no offence).

This is maybe just the artist in me speaking, but what the hey... I'm just shaering thoughts...

OK in response to toms design questions i think the current site is brilliant, but the flash one is also very good. The only advantage to the one your using now is the frames its alot easier to get around.

But this really does depend because the all flash on a busy day would load alot quicker than the front page ur using now.

AM i helping? nah i dont think i am....lol erm i like both and dont mind what ya do.

That proposed layout is really neat. I think that everything except the giant background movie is cool. The background movie was crappy just because it slowed the hell out of my crappy computer.

For the sections, I don't really care, as long as you leave an option for each part of the site on the front page.

The frames I don't like that much, although I LOVE the new (well, almost new) Portal feature that makes a new window for movies (because for a while some movies were too big to fit in the middle frame), just because my screen resolution is 800x600 and they take up too much space. That's just because my computer sucks though. But, there are probably a lot of other people that have old computers. That's always a problem to think about. That's all from me though.

OK, the new design is..okay. I like the current layout but I think new people coming to newgrounds would feel a little overwhelmed if they came here right now. I mean theres music here, a movie there, news here all on one page. Some guy earlier had a really good idea which i hope you do: have the cannon on the tank point to the items when you rollover them. Move the daily portal entries...and make an easter egg we miss them!

I like the Newgrounds main page you got going but I dont like the whole 3 sections thing. I think it would be better if you did something more like the original Newgrounds layout but with the whole tank newgrounds logo you already have going.

Uh oh, just what we need, more Eskimo Bob fans voting my movies down!

I like the new site design, the explosion looks like osmething out of Metal Slug. I especially agree with the top movies!!

The people who make the guns are the only real winners here.
And if you fear your own goverment, get an other. You are the people. You have no need for guns in democraty to defend yourself.
Your goverment can't handle it, because you don't suport it as you should.
You don't suport the the people with power because you don't like them and you hate to pay tax.
I say you are to proud to change your out dated democraty. Claim your power.

Power to the people!
