I like how it doesn't go to a new page when you vote.. What a time saver.

thx

Tom, you guys did an awesome job. I just can't wait till all the lag calms down... you guys must be waiting for the same thing at the moment, I'm pretty sure :P

well... the common images, css and javascript files are all caching for you for the first time. plus the database is like some living, breathing monster that needs to stretch it's scaly legs or something like that (according to Tim, honest).

I LOVE the new design. I LOVE the new icons. I LOVE the new auras. I LOVE everything.

amazingly, so do like 99% of the people. that's hard to do.

GOOD JOB TOM! GOOD JOB NEWGROUNDS TEAM!

aw shucks.

Also, it's fun how the Tankman looks like he's taking Pico's place as NG's new mascot.

oh man don't let mindchamber hear you say that. esp. now that we have a tankmen sticker sheet alongside the pico sticker sheet. i think they peel themselves off into little sticker armies and do battle in the office when no one's around.

Also... I already miss the "DEPOSIT YOUR EXPERIENCE" button :(

it was a hassle. you won't miss it in a month.

And yeah... I guess you guys have to work on the Bans too :P It's pretty messed up ><

Right now, ross is asleep on the couch, tim and tim are sleeping somewhere else, and i just pored over the bug reports in my PM Inbox. We won't be fixing much of anything until tomorrow afternoon. And with comicon right around the corner we might not get to it... But we're trying!

I love this new look, but I DON'T like how you can't see scores for individual ctegories on flash pages... I liked being able to gauge how funny a flash would be before I watched it, or how violent, etc. Thus, that's my biggest problem with the change, not that my saying this'll make a difference... Well, otherwise, awesome new redesign! And personal pages are a definite plus!

I was just curious why all the account graphics formats changed.

I see that animated graphics are no longer allowed in the forum signature. I just joined, and put some time into a cool animated sig graphic, just to now have to do over as static. Small point I guess, but was wondering why animated gifs were a problem.

Very nice schemes, for a minute, i believed maybe newgrounds would change it's trademark yellow/black theme, thank god it didn't, the only thing i didn't like was the removal of the categories when reviewing.
Apart from that, perfect.

And btw those were two really boring days, lol.

Furthermore, I'll ignore my level icon if not only because the new design coerced altr to venture out of his cave and grace us with his presence.

Lmfao you're a tool.

It feels like we've had this for a month. I'm already used to the redesign :)


it feels redundant to eat a bacon&sausage ham sandwich... but it's soooooo good.

Actually everything is pretty badass, but the only thing is, the profiles overview is much worse.

They were boring werent they. When I first saw the redesign, I believed the site was slower... Wrong. There were so many users on....

Usually it was someone in somewhat high-regards who would animate a short animation and it would be featured on the main page. The original links are dead right now, but it appears it's back to it's original capacity. Fun stuff!

Woah. For the whole day (from the UK :[ ) I waited, and here it is, finally. Admittedly, it's not exactly quick to load, but who cares??? It's not a website, it's artwork! Congratulations Tom, Wade, Johnny, Stamper, and everyone else who made this!!!!

I can just imagine all the useless topics exactly like this...

Actually, the old "colon space" trick probably won't work anymore, will it?

Just noticed something with watching the flash movies. It can't displays without using the pop-up feature.

I'm using Opera by the way...

I should go through the whole site and give detailed thoughts on every aspect of the new design, but i got too excited and had to post now!

The new look is amazing, really really amazing.

The user pages are fantastic too. I feared a MySpace rip-off, but I think it's a great feature that works well with the site. Going to go play about with mine in a minute!

Love how voting on Flashes stays on the same page. Also like the way Flashes open in the same page (how is that done???), although often while a Flash was loading I'd open the Flash portal link in a new tab and start finding the next submission to look at, which wont be possible any more. I'll just have to get in the habit of keeping the Portal open in a separate tab.

I was hoping you'd have dropped the 'most recent review' feature.. instead there's now two! This is a bit better as if the most recent one was crap at least the one before might be alright, more a balanced opinion. But still, I'd have prefered just a review summary on the submission page (e.g the last 5 review headlines and the average score).

I am having one MAJOR problem, dont know if I'm alone on it (cause i'm not wasting time reading through everyone elses posts when there's new stuff to check out). I'm stuck on 'Checking Login Status'.. can't access my account at all. Needs fixing pretty urgently unless i'm alone on it.

But in all, it's great. Newgrounds went from 2002 to 2007 in a day (ok I know you've been working on this far longer than a day, but you get my point). Congrats to everyone involved.
