New Newgrounds is pretty cracked out. The portals look great, and I'm pretty happy with everything Ive come across thus far save for the paint drip grunge on the outer boarders of the site. Other than that, things look spiffy. Impressive upgrade everybody.

Looks neat, but it seems difficult to find things at first. It's gonna take some time getting used to. I guess that's the problem with user interfaces; it's either easy to use but inefficient, or quick and efficient, but takes time to learn.

Feels like my head's exploding, there's so much stuff on the screen. Seems like the only thing that was kept was the original color theme: yellow, orange, grey and black. I still miss the layout from early 2004. This was the NG I fell in love with. (I took this screenie from web archive, so some of the frame images wouldn't show up.)

Out of all the awesomeness of the new design, my favourite bit in the NG staff page, that just oozes greatness.

Good stuff!

I know you probably aren't going to read this because it is so buried, but all the external files could really be cleaned up and make the page load much much faster.

Right now there's 11 javascript files, and 8 css files. (One--ngheads.css--is also returning a 404). That is 19 requests a browser needs to make to download just the javascript and css for the page (not including the images or the HTML, etc.).

If you combine and pack the javascript into one file (http://joliclic.free.fr/php/javascript-
packer/en/
) and combine the CSS into one file, you will create only two requests and smaller file sizes which should greatly speed up page loads as well as create a easier cacheable files for the browser. You of course would want to keep full, commented javascript files for development and use the packed ones on production.

Just a tip.

It looks great.

Tom, at this point in time I'd like to suck your cock, but then I'd become a cock sucker and I wouldn't like that.

I'm so conflicted.

Nope, it's right. I was level 23 before the update.

Hi, Tom,

good stuff. Generally, I like it so far, although there is still more to explore. I would guess the other Dragons & Spirits will be OK with it.

Naturally, as a "SAVE TANK Sm.gf" supporter, I am heartbroken at the loss of our tiny friend. Are you sure you couldn't put him in somewhere?


We are the Dragons & Spirits. We are friendly people. Best Wishes, Ice!

Fucking awesome. Some things are a bit slow as of now, but that might be temproray. This texteditor is pretty slow, for example. And it's fun to see all the different details. Nice emoticons! I liked PissdFaic already.

I seriously hope that you are joking, the changes should be blatantly obvious.
