How does this new system work? Are the whistles going to return soon? The way I see it, and do correct me if I'm mistaken, flagged submissions are viewed by portal mods who then call whether or not it should be deleted. I'm glad Portal mods are finally becoming a reality, but is there a source where we can learn more about this new system?

As it stands, the flagging system is currently not added and nonfunctional as usual. For the moment we are able to remove portal submissions that are deemed abusive once agreed upon by the rest of the team. I sent Tom a message asking if flagging has been scrapped or not, and am currently awaiting his response, however.

It's better than nothing, that's for sure. I'm trying to work out how the NGPD thread can help. I think one way we can help pertains to suspected stolen submissions; if you guys come across a submission that you think is stolen, post it here and we'll try to dig up something that could amount to concrete proof which will help portal mods make the right decisions.
For flashes that are unsuitable, I'd normally say PM'ing a portal mod is ideal if you're not sure whether or not a submission is abusive. However it's unreasonable to expect them to be constantly available to confirm anything. Here we have some experienced operatives, yours truly included, who can help verify the abusiveness of suspicious submissions before you take it up to a mod - even then I'd probably encourage you to run it through the Pmods to be sure.

I don't want this thread to tilt the scales for any Portal Mods though. But I trust that each of them can think independently enough to take our input objectively and make the best decisions based on whatever we can deliver.

It seems this is how we're going to operate for the time being until the whistle system is reimplemented... if it ever is.

I honestly hope that they do add on the whistle system. It would make things way easier for us when it comes to finding flashes that aren't suitable. For now, I encourage all of you to simply report flashes that seem to be against the rules to myself, or some of the other portal moderators via the PM system. If an easier way to do this is developed, we will switch to that.

The Art Portal system is gonna be adapted for movies, games and audio. It's just been held up in the queue.

Also, does this mean the NGPD's back in business? I would think that more people would look for/post abuse here if they knew that it's being dealt with far more effectively.

Preview button? What preview button? I have no idea what is going on anymore! Hahaha anyway I'm glad to see that we have new mods to help fight the crap that gets put up here on a daily basis. Congrats to Sectus for being one of the lucky few to get these new golden auras. Hopefully more of us will get the chance :).

Xaotic made a firefox script awhile back that adds a preview button. Works like a charm, too.

Tom has indeed confirmed that a whistle system will be added soon, and they are currently working on it. As I said before, until the new whistle system is implemented, we will just have to count on you guys for reporting bad flashes and authors to us.

That was ages ago dude, I think it is safe to say that the NGPD is dead now. I even read a comment on a Tails news post where he said he didn't come here (this thread) anymore, nobody does. I think that you have missed your chance by a few months.

It's honestly too bad. Nobody new's coming in (except spammers) and it looks like ALL the old guys have vanished. I mean, are Deadmann/Gamewiz/all the others just lurking here but afraid to post in a "dead" club? If so, they're doing the exact thing that's helping it die even further. The same goes for the people that ARE active but don't post here either.

And Amaranthus, If you really want to join, maybe you can help by posting here as well. That way this club might actually be alive enough for you to be able to join.

Gutted, but at least you are getting the hang of what this club is about. Just remember to post links as soon as you find them and we're golden. Maybe this place can have even the smallest bit of fight left yet.

Here's a perfect example:

This one's from the known shovelware site "gamergoogle." Their name's not in the flash, but it links to their site from the more games button.

Mods, I hope you're here!

Holy shit. Activity?

I've been... Busy recently. I'm finally into my Senior year of High School, and it's been pretty much non-stop going off to hang out with my friends and such. Then when I am home, I haven't had the pull to come visit Newgrounds, let alone the NGPD.

Honestly, I figured everyone had just given up, and I didn't see the point in being a lone poster in a dead thread. :/


Sometimes the best solution is, simply, a swift kick in the ass.

I barely come across NG these days. I've been enjoying writing and doing a lot of IRL stuff for some time. As for the assumption of me just leaning back and watching this place die wasn't really something I want to do. No, I'm waiting for Tom to give us back are damn whistles so we can make a decent impact on the portal. Last time I was here, it seemed we reached a silent agreement to wait this mess out. Eh, that's hopeful thinking anyway. Don't fear, I'll always be here. To many memories to just leave behind.

Same, but i think this could be a place to post links to shovelware and other general rule breaking flashs. Like the role that the EBG has seemingly took. Although I always thought of this place as more chatty and friendly.

Good to see you Game and Deadman :)

Hello sir or madam, I was curious to see if I could join the Police Department. I believe that it is a neat cause to have newgrounds members talk about voting and whatnot and I feel I could contribute positively to the police community.

I have the correct Blam/Protection points

The only problem is that I do not post on BBS very often. I will post if required on the police department thread and even the 'webuda.com' forum if I become a member. Socially I am a man of few words. I have made over 100 flash reviews though, so I was hoping maybe those could be judged as my BBS posts would have been judged.

Hope to hear from you soon!

--Joe

Hey dude, I'm Decky one of the few people who still posts in this thread, even then it's when other people bump it anyway, I'd let you join but you don't have enough forum posts, you need at least 50 good quality (not one or two lines) I'm afraid. Other then that you're a good candidate for the thread but rules are rules.

Not in my crew they're not. Sorry lad, you'll have to work on attaining the minimum requirements before you can be considered a potential recruit. As Decky said, review counts are not a factor in the recruitment process - never has been and probably never will be. What's good is that you seem to have read the OP and are aware of our requirements, however your last statement has given me a negative impression as well. Getting that minimum of 50 posts is probably the easiest criterion to fulfill in the recruitment process besides asking to join.

Why do 8/10 of the people who apply here nowadays turn out to be worthless trolls? I think I'll try to recruit a few genuinely good posters/BPers later.

Just thought of exactly who to ask right before posting this-hopefully you guys'll see them post here in the near future.

Oh don't worry Decky. Life goes on. I might occasionally post on the forum. I just won't go out of my way to do so. You can start living life again knowing that I will always be a part of this loving and nurturing community we call Newgrounds... and I call family : D
