Newgrounds, What Are You Becoming!? 2008-01-18 14:45:29 Reply

After seeing this abomination on frontpage:

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/42 0056

I feel that this thread needed to be made.

Now of course, from time to time we do see video submissions on Newgrounds. These submissions are well presented and always have some link with flash, be it editing, animation or an actionscripted control bar. This video 'broke the mould', as it were, but not in the good sense, where something new and inventive is created, or two great things are fused together in a good sort of way.
To put it the short way: That video belongs on YouTube. On Newgrounds it should have never seen the light of day, nevermind FRONTPAGE. I wonder what's happening... Either this is some sort of joke on the NG staff's behalf, or somthing is terribly wrong... But yeah... tell me what you think, or spit abuse at me, or call be a n00b or whatever, just thought you lot should know about this...

Didn't you hear? The frontpage system is so corrupt your stuff has to be extremely good or extremely rubbish. Either that or apparently, some kind of humour can be found in that movie, but NO.

So why that rubbish is on the front page is beyond me.

NO.

Please, don't let that shit take over Newgrounds as a "meme", because memes are generally funny. That shit's not funny.

We don't want Newgrounds to die, let alone the whole fucking Internet. Shit like that should rot in the obituaries.

It's not us, It's Tom Fulp. He puts terrible movies on the frontpage all the time, jsut to piss people off. WE have nothing to do with it. Go PM Tom and complain to him about the horrible abomination on the precious, beautiful frontpage.

No? Why the fuck does it have to be a joke? A little kid dancing around his room like a faggot is a hilarious sight. If you disagree, then the odds are you, too, are a little kid.

Seriously!

Obviously, Newgrounds is slowly but surely turning into YouTube, where videos of some ten year old being a dick passes as good humour and worthy of the front page, and a score above 0.00.

Shut up. There are good and bad reasons to bitch about things. What possessed the admins to put this rubbish on the frontpage is well worth bitching about.

That was really immature... I'm entitled to an opinion.. The only reason i made this thread was because of how strongly i felt that this shouldn't be on frontpage, if on the site at all..

Or maybe there is no humor in seeing some little kid dance around to bad music. You ever think of that?

It's either the staff screwed up, or this is some sort of joke they're pulling on us.
