Also, dont forget front page trophies... seems easy since you got all the frontpage flashes stored in the FP archive... right?

Congrats to all the winners.

I like the other ideas, but a front page trophy seems a little much. Being on the front page itself is an award. Also, most people can tell if a submission has been on the front page by the number of views (if it's over fifteen thousand, it was probably on the front page- not always though- I have two submissions that have over 100,000 views but never got on the front page) and by the submission's quality (if it's really funny or really well made, it was probably on the front page).
This would just be more work for an already overloaded staff.

I really miss the view-landmark icons (purple, green, blue, silver, etc, when your submission reaches a viewing number landmark), but I can see why they got rid of it.

First off I'd like to congratulate all the winners and participants of madness day!

Now let me point out the following statement:
"While a lot of people may make standard-issue Madness clones, we are excited to see people break the mold."
Unfortunately, I think this statement might have been false.
There were easily a few movies that stood out as showing some time and effort and at least a glimmer of originality. My honest opinion is that "you can not kill hank" seemed to me as deserving the top spot just for it's originality and deviation of style from the "cloned" circle tween. Granted Deus ex was well made and very stylish, but somewhere around the middle I found myself wondering when it was going to be over.

In the top 10 there are some who easily deserved it, granted maybe not in the order I felt but obviously I wasn't a judge. There was also at least one which was submitted after madness day had finished, and though I don't believe it shouldn't be allowed to compete, it just should be put under more strict judgement than those who push to at least get it in on time.
My last comment is that cut the madness, in my opinion, got far more than it deserved. Under 40 seconds long, 5 seconds of actual animation and a cliche joke that's been done "cut, more feeling, I'm going to my trailer" does not seem like it should enjoy it's place among top 10. This is not a stab at any artist, I actually think Won Chop is actually rather good, just not deserving in this particular instance.

Many decent entries just didn't get a nice spot on front page where people felt they should throw 4's and 5's at them. I feel that's a touch unfair, but eih, what are you going to do right thats life but for some reason I felt the need to at least voice an opinion. :D

Oh and if anyone wants to flame me, or tell me you'd like to see me do better? Here's my madness day link, all be it short, it has a song I made from scratch specifically for madness day and an actual style that may have "broken the mold" just a little more than most of the tweened circles I watched float around all day: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/40 1838

Happy madness day and congrats again!! :P

Woot! I feel extremely lucky that Tom added an additional 3 prizes for 'Newgrounds' Madness movies. I saw the top 10, and was like "Ah, crap." Then I scrolled down and saw that I actually won $250!

I really thought I wouldn't be winning anything this time. =P

Congrats to all of the other winners! I wish Xion did better than 6th though. He worked extremely hard on his.

Very big thanks to Tom, Krinkels, Swain, and Chris Nosal! =D

Oh boy, that sure is swell. Thanks very much Tom and Krinkels! :3
Yeah that contest trophies thing does sound rather swell. Will that also account for stuff like the Armorgames and WiggiWorld contests (partly cos it's braggy, but it's also handy when showing pages to potential employers in the future.)
