It helps make things appear more obvious, especially if it does turn out to be stolen, but I don't like the habit of citing authors' comments as concrete evidence of theft.

Sure I'll remember that for further reference, though don't worry I wasn't solely making my claim that the game was stolen based on the author's comments. I also saw that the game was copyrighted by a website, made a long time ago, referenced by "Jayisgames" along time ago, and wouldn't even load on Newgrounds lol. If anything the combination of all those factors (even without the author's stupid comment) was enough to condemn this flash. Though I agree there could definitely be some authors trying to trick people into flagging, I'll be more cautious of this in the future.

Check your PM box when you get the time.

Seems as though I missed some stuff while resting to get rid of this damned cold. Missed some chances for whistle points, but more will come along in due time. The Portal has yet to fail me on that aspect at least. :)

I'll be doing a few rounds. Should I notice anything awkward, I'll post it here for you guys and also inform the EGB as well. Prower out for now. *salute*

Pardon me fellows for the double post, but I'm sure this will be worth the interruption...or at least I hope it will be. XD

We've been having some rocky points lately I'm sure we can all agree. We've got things under control now and we're slowly, yet surely getting back to normal here. This is something that I'm glad to see is us working as we should be for the better part of Newgrounds and more importantly for the Portal. :)

After the events of Saturday night, I think we all had our foundations shaken quite a bit. Pardon the language, but we've gotten the message to get our asses in gear and get back to the straight and narrow. We've heeded what we've been told and are now using our thread for what it should be and we will continue to do as such.

All of this being said, I have an announcement to make to all of you members of the NGPD! :)

Early Sunday morning while I'm sure most of you were asleep here on the eastern side of the United States, I was up still...it had to of been around 2:30-3am. The adrenaline that had been pumping through me started to wane, finally relaxing a bit after all the happenings of the night prior. Tails and I were both on Steam, just pretty much talking about olden days. Not necessarily days of the old NGPD, but just overall in general.

To not become too boring though, I'll just cut to the chase...

I'm here to inform all of you guys that I've been offered the position of Unit Ops here in the NGPD by Tails. That Sunday morning I agreed to take the reigns of this position and I promise to do my best for the members of the Newgrounds Police Department and our entire cause as a whole.

Instead of turning this place into a giant menagerie of comments due to this announcement, I request that all things pertaining to this be posted on our private forums if anyone chooses to do so, as to prevent our thread from being cluttered by comments.

That said, I hope with the combined man power of Tails and myself and the cooperation of the Newgrounds Police Department members as a whole, we can prevent any future outbursts from happening that drag Newgrounds in it's entirety into our affairs.

I mean nothing bad by this, if any moderators check in here and see this post. It's just I know you guys are tired of having to deal with things such as this, and would rather prefer to not have to interfere when not needed. That and us getting another chance with this puts us on the rather thin side of the ice anyways.

That all said and done, again, if anything needs to be said about this announcement, I urge members to go to the private forums to do so instead of posting it in this thread. :)

Dismissed! *salutes*

Man, that felt good to do...

Hateful/Pornographic Flash Alert!

Breakdown: This is way to obscene/hardcore for Newgrounds; as it depicts a naked woman being beaten, real sexual content, and "goatse." This is just plain disgusting and it violates FAQ.

I'm sorry for all of the drama but I think it would be more fair to properly explain our (the mods') position here.

Basically this thread has some core problems that none of you can really help:

- It is a clone of a similar thread, the EGB.

- Where as the EGB is an exclusive club where only people who fit certain criteria are allowed, this thread purports to have such a system but the requirements are so low it nearly defeats the purpose of exclusivity.

- Even with the minimal requirements, you can't even stay a member of this thread for very long, which leads to high turnover of membership. The folks who get a hang of the site and helping out are here and gone in no time. In just a month or two you are already out in some cases.

- These lower standards, unfortunately, lead to a less experienced, knowledgeable and mature member base. To get to the minimum criteria of the EGB some people may take months. In this thread, you could conceivably get in after only being here a week or two. It has also led to a lower average age of the members which goes towards the whole maturity issue. The quick turnover means that the average age and experience on the site stays pretty low.

- Stat building is generally frowned upon on the BBS because it has lead to abuse in the past (see: blam club and its ilk in this forum). Both the EGB and this thread or its predecessor thread clearly meant to be a hang out for stat building but with the advent of the problem I just mentioned, both have shifted from simply getting more stats to helping the portal flag inappropriate content.

- Now, even where the new mission of the thread is to help clean up the portal, this thread is even more identical to the EGB except the EGB has a minimum whistle level requirement and this thread doesn't. This means that the members here may not even be all that great judges of inappropriate content and when they do find one, they are almost ineffective because of the lower whistle levels.

- Because it is a clone of the EGB thread it results in some people using both threads to pad their post counts. Sticking around for a long time after they left and joined the other club or making it a point to copy/paste the exact same post in each thread when they locate submissions that need to be whistled.

- It can also cause confusion for the regular user who isn't interested in membership of either club but wants to help the site out by getting a few more bodies to help flag a stolen or malicious flash in the portal. These two threads have become the impromptu go-to for getting the word out on content that needs to be flagged... but there's a high chance the submissions will get through unencumbered if they post the link in this thread where the users have lower level whistles. The EGB has a more experienced and higher-leveled group of members. They won't have instances of missing something that needs to be taken care off and they are knowledgeable enough to know when not to flag something.

- Because of the high turnover of membership there is also a high turnover of leadership positions. It creates confusion among the ranks and some who may not be apt for leadership are thrust into it while others who are quite good at leadership are forced out once they rank out and join the EGB. It also means newer people would see it as an opportunity to get into the leadership by insinuating themselves into positions left vacant.

This is a laundry list of problems I see with this thread just by its very premise and I don't see how they can be fixed. you can't really up your criteria for joining because that would make you pretty much an EGB-lite so why just join the EGB? and you can't help that some people will come and go quickly because you can't expect somebody to stick around forever if they are really interested in trying to get higher rankings or helping the site out more by having a higher impact with their vote and whistle.

And the high turnover is really the biggest hitch for me because where I am telling all of the current members this right now....none of you remember when I told it to you a year ago, or two years ago, ect. And in a few months how many will be around to hear it again from me or another moderator? The high turnover means that there's a whole new class of members in a short period of time...they aren't experienced with the site so they may not know the do's and dont's of using a club thread while at the same time there aren't many people around to help guide them.

Now, you all are totally welcome to discuss club related issues like membership and leadership in y our thread - I would never require that a club use their own forums for that kind of thing when they have a thread here on the BBS.

But the arguments that spill over from other places that are seemingly unrelated to the whole usefulness of the thread, immaturity in posts within the thread over really minor things and having to periodically bring in a moderator to help clean the place up just makes the thread not worthwhile to keep around.

How much energy am I spending writing this reply so that it will go unremembered in just a few months when the membership here changes hands once again that I could be spending checking up on General? Same goes for poozy, coop or aviewaskewed?

If we were to weigh the usefulness against the headaches caused by this thread today I don't believe it would weigh in favor of keeping this place around.

To be totally honest with you guys, if the NGPD hadn't existed until today and the EGB had and I saw this thread pop up as a new club I would probably lock it suggest that whoever wants to join should put some more effort into B/Ping, flagging and post quality and instead join the EGB.

All of this isn't to say I have it out for this thread or that I am waiting for a miss-step to pounce on a chance on ending it. No, you were allowed by somebody else and you kept going for a few years so I should give you the benefit of the doubt. And I have been. But, at the same time, I also find that this is one of the club threads where I've had to spend more time and energy on on a consistent basis ever since I was modded.

In all honesty I understand some of your points such as that the "NGPD" may seem a like a clone or that it doesn't exactly retain members for an extensive period of time ( I mean hell, I'll probably be gone in a months or two), but the NGPD does serve a purpose.

I believe the NGPD is important in grooming Newgrounders to become better members, learn FAQ, and also move onto attaining a place in the EGB. Honestly I learned allot of things from the NGPD such as finding stolen flashes, abusive reviews, and many other skills I wouldn't have learned by just waiting to become a member of the EGB. I started off pretty noobish with a regular whistle, and look at me now I have a silver whistle and a decent B/P ratio, and it's all thanks to these guys teaching me the ropes of things and how to navigate around this site. I mean now I average around finding and successfully reporting around two or more stolen/abusive flashes a day (anyone here can attest to the fact that we have not flagged anything inappropriately in quite some time), and it's all thanks to this club's guidance.

I heard you mention that perhaps our flagging and whistling wouldn't be as effective since we our lower levels, actually this is not really that accurate..... As many of the current members have gold, silver, deity, and bronze whistles, which they attained through their time learning and making accurate judgments (currently we have a very good flagging system, with little error).

Personally all I'm saying is that the NGPD is still an excellent tool for grooming future EGB members (we have plenty of members who graduated from the NGPD and are now in the EGB) and outstanding Newgrounders, without the NGPD I highly doubt I would have learned half the things I know now and I definitely wouldn't have been ready for the EGB. I'm not at all attacking your statements, I'm merely suggesting that it would be very sad to see a respectable club like the NGPD disappear forever due to some petty arguments.

Tails remembers it. As do I. And while you're right about membership in here being temporary, that doesn't mean it's entirely devoid of the experience the EGB is supposed to be full of. Ex-members don't just abandon this place; there are several EGB members who actually spend more time in the NGPD's private forum than they do the EGB one. The only reason they've not been given official roles here is because that would piss all over the whole B/P limit thing.

That said, I must've told Tails at least half a dozen times to make more of an effort with spelling out what you've just had to write again to the new members. There's a link to your previous warning, as well as about 10 pages of discussions and additional advice, in that private forum. All it would take is to make said part of the forum public (like what the EGB has: mostly public-access with only one or two restricted bits), and the noobs would be able to see the whole history of the club before they end up causing a re-run of it.

With the recent return of the 'tech admin' responsible for the forum's original layout, I'd like to once again put forward the idea to the NGPD in general: If the forums were made partly public-access, even apprentices could start reading up on how to avoid causing this again before they're even allowed in.

Just consider it Tails / MrAngel, m'kay? If it's not possible, then fine; all I'm asking is that it be looked at. This place is so much more than the 'tribute band' it's often labeled as, and even if every criticism ever levelled at it is true, it doesn't change the fact that this place is the single biggest reason the EGB is so successful today in the first place. Most of the members there were good enough to join because of the mistakes they made, and learned from, while here.
It'd do more damage than most people realise to have it locked permanently, and while I have no official say in the matter, I'm damned if it's going to end up locked for good over something that appears to be so easily preventable.

Admittedly, since I've only been back for about a grand total of two months now from a four or more year hiatus, I'll admit that I wasn't aware of the large posts that you have made before about the NGPD since the original thread was locked. I've read your entire post though and I'll definitely agree that you have some very valid points as far as member criteria and some other points that you brought up during said post.

Personally, since now I have a position as second-in-command of this place, perhaps we all can come together and make some changes to things as they need to be attended to? It's just my thoughts though, but I think we could do with some changes perhaps; overhaul some things and improve overall settings here in this club.

I can understand that the mods have been having quite a lot of issues with us, having to interfere a lot more than they should have as of late, and I apologize to you guys. You bust your asses to make sure the BBS is clean of anything that would sully it, and I fully respect your guys' positions. I mean that. :)

Perhaps we can all come together as a whole here in the NGPD and restructure some things, like our requirements and criteria for example? I think we need to go down to brass tacks and maybe take a look at things, then go from there for better or worse and fix what could be messed up to improve the overall quality of people we get.

Not to say that anyone who's ever left here hasn't been good enough. We've had a lot of people rank out and to the EGB who are very capable and respected. As Sheiz said, we get them visiting often here to help and say hello even.

Again, this is merely my own thoughts, but overall I feel as though we could improve some things at least. As for what, I'll leave that for when Tails is back from a short break. I can't blame the guy after the last couple of weeks. :/

The rules, help/faq, and NGPD Central forums have been viewable by guests to the site, in this case the apprentices, since i came back to the NGPD back in January. I thought in the same way you did SheizenHammer, i realized it would be beneficial for apprentices to have a knowledgeable start to their apprenticeship, and if it came to it, membership, in hopes that such problems would not arise in the first place. I do realize, however that some people cause trouble whether they know the rules or not, or even just to be a nuisance, so there is no excuse to be ignorant to the rules, and the general discussions of how to interact within this club, from the day they become apprentices.

Just a heads up for all members. Please check the PF consistently for any new updates or threads. I've posted one on Central regarding a particular policy/rule which I will ruthlessly enforce and for which I will have no patience or sympathy for those who are ignorant of it.

All members need to report to the thread I have mentioned and provide the appropriate feedback, ASAP.

Hey Guys!

Just reporting in to tell you guys I finally made it to the illustrious position of "Police Captain" (you better start catching up a little PP :P). It'll be nice to finally be the top dog for a short while, but unfortunately this also means my days are numbered as well. Anyway I'll be around quite a bit this week as my college work is settling down now that I'm gradually heading into "May Term," so here's hoping to a great week with lots of reports :D

*salutes*

With my promotion you should expect a substantial increase in my doughnut consumption, so make with the doughnuts Tails >:D

Haha that's how it's Mike! Welcome to the top dogs, as far as police ranks are concerned XD Also, donuts are in abundant supply - which kinda reminds me of last year's Clock Day when I actually got a box of Dunkin Donuts to help sustain me through the day.

Probably one of the longer 14 hours I've spent while doing something. Too bad you'll probably rank out and be well into the elite guard rank before we get to see you in action on C-Day

I guess we'll have to watch the C-day Roster in the EGB for that one.

Anyway, I've read over everything that has been said today:

I second this. Thank you guys for all the work you do around the BBS, all of the drama that's gone on in the last week shouldn't have happened, and it shouldn't have gone as far to have you guys come in and work harder to clean it up.

I think we need to go down to brass tacks and maybe take a look at things, then go from there for better or worse and fix what could be messed up to improve the overall quality of people we get.

I've got a simple suggestion to this, why don't we increase the amount of (Quality) posts required from 50 to 100, and crack down on how strict we are about reviewing post quality. It our biggest factor for turning down members, and it works quite well, but that isn't to say it can't be better. That's just my two cents.

Again, this is merely my own thoughts, but overall I feel as though we could improve some things at least. As for what, I'll leave that for when Tails is back from a short break. I can't blame the guy after the last couple of weeks. :/

Agreed, what a way to come back from vacation...

I don't honestly see why this chat business should be that big of an issue. The issue happened a week or two ago, and was solved IN the chat, now for some reason I see this issue reoccuring in the NGPD thread. Generally issues such as the dispute that happened in the chat should be handled privately, which is exactly what happened, but for some reason it's being brought back up.

It really doesn't seem like that big of an issue to me, and it has been long solved for a while. Let's all just get along, and leave the past in the past, people.

As for Prower, congratulations on your promotion, and somesuch.

Son of a bitch!

It's not rule-breaking or anything, but don't you just HATE it when you review a game, and then the author changes the comments to something which undermines half of what you wrote? >:(

At least he didn't milk it for all it's worth in his response, but still... >:(
Makes me wish you could delete your own reviews. It'd enable me to re-write it, with the SAME score, only for having such a dumb button layout instead of no button at all.

Don't fret Sheiz, that kind of thing happened to me quite a few times back when I joined early. I think it would be a good idea if there was an ability to mark an author's response to a review to be abusive. Hey, they might install that feature, you never no.

Ha if this ever happend I would flag just about every author response from Kitty Crew since they call the reviewer most of the time a dipshit or make some serious insults. Flag happy day maybe.

They should allow users to flag a review based on different things, like you can do when you whistle flashes. That way authirs that do that would be discouraged because theyd have alot less good reviews. I know there are some users to put random crap in their reviews, but for those who actually make at least a decent attempt at a proper review shouldn't have to look like bumbling idiots because the author changed things around.

NGPD Roster as of April 3rd, 2011:

Hello there to the NGPD.

This is last Sundays roster. LATE AGAIN?!?! Yes yes... This time my internet has been on the blink, I've only had enough time to post those couple posts I have in here and vote before it goes down again. Tis' all sorted now though.

I hope that after everything, everything has calmed down for the NGPD. Congratulations on the position of Unit-Ops, PP. I've seen many of users become Unit-Ops, and they've all always brought their own "spice" into the NGPD. I hope that you and Tails can work together effectively and we can all work in a team together in order to make each other happy, and the mods.

Without stepping out of line here, but maybe a possible cracking down of some home rules maybe in order? I'm not saying anything, but if I can help in any way then just give me a PM. I'd gladly hep in any way I can to get the NGPD back on top again.

So, apart from that I hope that you are all well and stay that way!

Enjoy the roster guys.

I must say that I also hate people like that, they're kind of like trolling when they ignore the advice and response to them in that kind of way.

I see this a lot on TCP chat,blogs and discussions, I hate how some little maggots twist the words and try to find loopholes from the site rules. Dumbasses don't realize that challenging any ruling of an admin is also against the rules. So I can just take the "ban hammer" and ban in peace.

No but seriously I'd love to hit someone in the head with a real hammer when they act like an idiot...

We're off to an awesome start already as it is, thank you for your praise! :)

I actually made mention of this myself as well. We're currently in the works of amending new regulations on the PF as we speak. It's not hammered out entirely yet, but we're well on our way. You may have to re-register on the site again though, due to some buggy things that happened. I'll PM you the link and all that if you need it again.

Congrats for the milestone, Sectus! Hopefully there's several more where that came from. :)

I'm going to have to sit down and figure out what most of this means. I'm genuinely curious, though I get the + and - figures have to be a rank thing or in general increase or decrease in the amount from the previous roster list.

Top 5 Gainers::
BigMike47 - 255
Sectus - 85
Figter - 82
PowerPrower - 73
MrAngel - 12

I bet the week before if I had been on the list, it would have been a pretty glorious amount compared to this weeks. Not nearly as monsterous as that 255 Mike has this week, or the 200+ the last time as well, but it would have been pretty close to second place, IF not second place in general. :p Always a next time!

Top gainers, repeat appearances::
BigMike47 (6)
Sectus (4)
Figter (3)

Congrats on your repeat appearances, gentlemen! Keep up the good work. :D

Total gain for week: 529
That's 88.17 per day, or 4.20 per day per member.

Not bad at all, but I think the lot of us need to smash that stuff good as it comes into the portal and show it who's the boss around these parts. :p

Also, just as an FYI to all of you, I have one of my longer (if not longest) shifts of the week today at work. Wednesdays are always going to be like this, 2:30-11, so I'll not be showing much activity in the means of being involved until after that's over with.

If anyone is interested, we've got some newer discussions going on in the PF and I actually managed to squeeze out a writing last night that I'm sure members old and young could enjoy. :p Be seeing you guys this evening, I'm out of here for now! *salute*

It's nice to see the roster for last week. I sincerely didn't expect to get that high on the B/P ratings list, men. Also, for the 1k saves, I did actually expect to see that. It's nice to finally get some points on the list.

Nice find with that abusive flash, I tagged that one. As for the college testing, good luck, and don't worry, we'll keep your seat warm while you aren't here, the testing will happen to all of us someday, so don't worry, it'll be over soon :P
