There's my attention whoring skylight. lol

Anyhow, glad to see Tails getting back on the thing. And, like I said guys, if the script for an animation isn't so demanding, I can help you guys make it. I don't really want to flood this area with a borderline off-topic conversation, so if you want to talk to me about it, send me a PM or develop a thread over at the site forums. Though directly talking to me would probably be a bit more of an effective means. There forums there are kinda scarcely used.

Narcissy's right. Besides, we have a Flash section in the PF where such matters can be discussed indepth.

It's pretty obvious that this is stolen:

Original:

The guy claims he ''has the right'' to steal it from the original creator. Yeah, I don't get it either...

Excellent work Jackho! I just now flagged it to find that I delivered the final blow to get it marked and taken off the Portal. And he claimed that he has the right to take other people's work... and submit it to the same site? The hell was this guy smoking?

That is most likely the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Are these people even trying?

Honestly, I don't see the issue here, dumb thieves make our jobs easier, and Wade's easier when the flash is this obviously stolen.

Or... it could be a massive internet statwhoring inflation conspiracy that employs rogue operatives controlling legions of alt accounts to submit blatantly stolen material which would almost certainly (maybe/probably not) get flagged and deleted, thus rewarding the people with points. In order to raise their stock prices and public image.

Just a thought.

Alas, I get ahead of myself. Another alternative is that some people just really suck at stealing and getting away with it.

First off, I strongly recommend you lurk more around the BBS to get a feel for how users act. I noticed your little picture spam habit back there, and you're still in the process of learning how to act less noobish in the BBS.

We all should learn how to act less noobish :)

As agreeable as your post is... why did you quote something I posted from 3 years ago? Meh, no matter. Anyways, I'm gonna try to get the roster in on time this week. I've got a lot of things going on this weekend but have faith that I'll manage.

Without a shadow of a doubt that is the LAZIEST set of B/P scores I've ever seen the NGPD accomplish. Only one member is so much as even trying at all. WTF people?

And I know what you're going to say; I was here this time last year too, and the year before that. Neither times were even close to this level of dead-ness when it came to school / college work schedules. It's a good excuse for a moderate lack of activity, yes, but... seriously? 31 B/P across the ENTIRE list of members?

What the fuck happened to this place? After all the shit it's pulled itself through, is it now just going to fade away and die from inactivity?

Wow, those are some really low numbers there on the roster... I promise that I'll get at least 10 points this week. I'm gettin' back in the saddle! No more of this silliness!!

I know... what happened to all the people who brought in abusive/stolen flashes like everyday? Usually I never had to worry about the NGPD going under because people always found something to post about. But now it seems that there's little interest going around.

This is fairly unprecedented. I think the PF's a good place for brainstorming some ideas to spark some life back into this thread. Report to the Rec Room for further details.

Personally I think that the life and soul has gone from the party in members which were once a key pat of the NGPD. Myself, Porkchop, SH, SilentCobra, Krev, and a few others who used to bob in here. Now... The thread moves slowly and its becoming a tad repetitive.

Is there anyway to revive the NGPD?

I would like to join if it's still an option. I've read through the requirements and what-not and I think I may be a good addition. I have Police Officer rank, and am a daily user of the flash portal and an active member of the forums (since recently). Also I think my posts are mostly all on-topic and not just spam, but I guess you'll be the judge of that. Not to mention I've used Newgrounds for just over 8 years (though when I was younger I never thought to actually sign up, ergo 2006 sign up date.) Let me know if I can!

I'll take this one!

Rank: 'tis fine.

Post Count: 'tis also fine.

Post Quality: Hmm, there are a few one liners, but most of them appear to be well thought out and on topic.

If it was up to me, I'd say yes, but we have to wait for an official decision from TailsPrower.

Good luck!

I'm going to throw my opinion in the mix.

Rank: Good job, police officer is a great time to enter!

Post count: Check

Post quality: ...Meh.
I really looks like you know how to make a good well thought-out post, but it doesn't look to me that you do it enough. I'm on the fence about you, but of course, that's why we have apprenticeship. I'd be willing to give you a shot.

Anyway, final say goes to Tails or Powerprower, so we'll see.

Indeed, Tails gives out the final call. He may let you take the apprenticeship. Let's not forget my quality was mehish too.

Still is.

So yeah, even if you don't get accepted the first time, keep trying.

I have to aagree, I know that I havn't been posting in the NGPD for half as long as the users that you listed but even I have noticed that this place now goes at a slow crawl at best and I find myself unable to contribute to the convosation because it has already been said months before.

I hope this place picks up, I really do :(.

I remember back at the time of my application, mike and Porkchop told me to expand my posting habits out of just the audio forum. I did, and I was able to get in to the group. I also remember being sent to the NGPD by the EGB, because for some reason, I was a bit stupid and thought the EGB was a role playing club. Anyway, I'm glad I'm still here. And like Jonny and others said, don't worry if you don't get in this time, you're application looks promising.

Also, I apologize for my absence. College courses in high school are a bitch..

Not to say that you can't join until then I'd like to add, but if you keep up your current pace you'll be on your way to the EGB before you really get acquainted here. Just watch here and the EGB thread, along with reading over people's reviews, and you'll have a bronze whistle in no time.

Yeah, I think that should be a new policy where people who are almost an Elite Guard should probably just wait to join the EGB. It's great that you're on the fast track b/p-wise and serving the Portal, but there's not much to gain from being a member for only a few weeks or so.

I mean, if someone who was close to ranking out REALLY wanted to join, I wouldn't turn them down. It just wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to pursue membership at that point. Although, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind y'all that non-members who want to help the Portal by spotting abusive flashes are more than welcome to chill with us here. We're not exclusive with who gets to post here, so long as everyone stays on track and follow the BBS and NGPD rules.

BTW, congrats on that shiny new badge, Jackho! Looks good on ya :)

By normal students from a class. If you taken a gander at them, you'd notice that it's all legit work. Most being average of a total noob. Well, my opinion, slightly above average. Saw some pretty creative ones, though. Like Flush Out.

Anyhow, voted fairly on all of them. Recommend my comrades to do the same.
