Does anyone remember that "Portal Deletion Contest" that we had a few months ago? Well, after a long period of procrastination, we have finally put the winning cartoon in place! It came down to a few finalists, and for the longest time I was planning to use two, but in the end we decided to use the movie by George Daneliuc. It had the most impact and also made us laugh. :)

If you cast the deciding vote on a Portal movie that gets deleted, you will be treated to a special Flash movie!

The closest runner-up was by Gavin Kempenaar, and featured a samurai slicing an .swf file in half as it fell from a tree. I still plan to make an archive of some of the better submissions we received.

We have lots of unfinished plans here at Newgrounds! For a while now, we have actually been storing deleted Portal entries. Eventually, we will be launching The Portal Junkyard - a place where people can go to laugh at deleted movies.

We might also add other fun features, such as the "FINAL SAY" option where the person who casts the final vote gets to leave a special message that stays attached to the movie. Additionally, we might make it so your user profile tracks how

many Flash movies you have "shot down". We're just full of ideas.

Anyway, speaking of unfinished projects - Disorderly is in the final stages of development. All of the art and cinemas by Zeebarf are done, and I'm wrapping up the last of the programming. I sure hope people like this one! Zeebarf and I are already more excited about the next few games we are going to make. Maybe we'll get them out faster than this last one. :)

Blech... So what have I been up to? I spent a few days in LA last week discussing a new site (remember that poll we had about paying for adult content?). I'll have more about that as things progress.

What did everyone think of the Disney Atlantis article? Do you want to see more content like that on Newgrounds, or do you just want more Flash? Tell me what you think!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Damn you, Tom!!! DAMN YOU!!! Do you have ANY idea how many Portal entries I have shot down to date?!?! I'd have a friggin' NG Janitor trophy by now! But, what the hell, if you are going to start tracking the shoot downs, start soon, because I spend a lot of time in the "Recent Submissions" list... so no hard feelings. :)

To me, it doesn't really matter exactly what you spend your time primarily on. As long as it's interesting, I don't care if you write an article, make a Flash movie or game, or whatever. I like Pico, I liked the Nadia vs. Atlantis article, I like Wasted Sky, I like the club-a-seal... so I really have no room to bitch. What you might want to do, though, is get this site running a little better, but I'm sure you know about that by now.

P.S. What exactly are the criteria (What ratings at what #'s of votes) where Newgrounds deletes a crappy Portal Entry?

Final Say sounds good. You wont really need a junkyard, because you can just click on one of the most recent portal entries to find somthing of amazingly low qualtiy. Also: will there ever be a Cat Dynamics update?!?!?!

I have shot down many movies in my short time reviewing crappy entries to The Portal, and adding a final message would be great, actually getting to "tag" a movie as your own kill is gonna be great.
A portal junkyard would be great, as all the people who submitted their shitty entries *coughstrawberryclockcough* will still get to see their shit on the site, and everyone will still get to ridicule them.
I agree with scunsion, the number of kills on Portal entries needs to be put up soon, to show how much time we actually spend at the "Most Recent Submissions" section.... actually that sounds a little sad. *shrugs* Ah well!

i liked the atlantis article but i would like to see more flash.the articles are ok some of the time but i would loose interest over time. i think that maby showing the number of movies you "shot down" may make voters vote "X" more offen than whant the would normaly give a film a "1" or something. peaple may think that are ranked by how many they "shot down"! but what your doing sounds really cool the gave yard is a good idea.

The Atlantis piece was absolutly FANTASTIC. I loved it, and told everyone I knew about it, also e-mailing the URL (after finding the URL). At first i was shocked, but ceased being so after remembering it was Disney (NOTE: Pixar is very creative and should not be lumped with Disney, as the two companies are at war in reality).
Everybody's always copying someone, all industries and even sports (some team wins w/ a good play, some next fall, everyone is using that play). Check out this pic of Apple/Pixar CEO Steve Jobs (of course; what other CEO wears jeans that tight?) with an Apple ibook and a Dell notebook. I couldn't include the rest of the photo, but his face is like "Puh-lease!" IBM-PC manufactuers have no style, like Disney, and must steal, like Disney. It happens. But the rat--mouse, went to far this time.
On a unrelated note, I am getting a bit tired of drunken Yoda, as cool as he is. Replace the image with *anything*, please. No beef, just asthetically thinking. A new inclusion of material like the Atlantis piece is very welcome.

It would be cool if I could look at all the movies I deleted. I think I deleted at least twelve since I signed up a couple of months ago. The Disney Alantis article was great. (FUCK DISNEY!!!) More shit like that would be really cool.

I'm all for giving a big "fuck you" to the submitter (I would say creator, but there's been sooo much stolen stuff....), and a tally of blam's, wow :).

I spent about an hour trting to find a movie to blam just to see the movie, it's quite amusing and better than just the text. Will the portal junkyard have a voting system where the lower the vote the higher it ranks? that'd be good.

-Eggatron

p.s. there's still a typo next to my game (which will be updated as soon as I can get to my friends to export the swf as my computer's being a bastard) in the features......

i want to see a lot of the old newgrounds idea perhaps with some new twists since youve gotten better with flash. i loved how the old newgrounds was obsolutely ruthless, when the telebubbies came out it was like nothing i had ever seen in my life! so id totally like it if you would put out some more ruthless attention craving shtuff!

Eventually, we will be launching The Portal Junkyard - a place where people can go to laugh at deleted movies.

(I think this is could be a good idea, but will probably end up sucking because people will start purposely makeing crappy movies just so they can end up in the Junkyard. Kind of their little 15 minutes of fame.)

What did everyone think of the Disney Atlantis article? Do you want to see more content like that on Newgrounds, or do you just want more Flash? Tell me what you think!

(I'll have to admit, I didn't actually read it, but I plan to eventually and I think things like that are a good change from the usual Flash that we've all grown accustomed to.)

WOO HOO I shot down my first movie.
I honestly like the idea of tracking the kill rate.
Maybe having a body count under the profile photo with a little stickman having an "X" through it, like a Tex Avery cartoon if they voted "0". But if they voted "X" they could get something else.

I also think there could be a series of movies dedicated to killing a bad film. Rotating the samurai one, or the starcraft one I just saw along with other entries to keep it fresh, and encourage creativity.

Disney Always steals ideas, I bet that if i had an idea about a movie where Kids revolt and kill that Gay Purple Dino called Barney, they would steal that idea but make it to where they kill Tinky Winky (which i would want to kill both) I'm telling ya, the people at Disney are Thieves. I say we go down to their studios and burn it to Ashes. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
