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. :/

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.

I know right, it's been a while since we had any post but it's good to see us kinda up and running again in a small way.

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.

Same Deadman, I'll always be straight here as soon as somebody posts. VIVA LA NGPD!

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

Today is Tail's birthday! Let us celebrate if anybody still visits this place. I'm sure some activity would be one of the greatest presents we could give. Mainly because we don't see him IRL but still.

I think with 2 weeks of no activity in this club, it seems that it already is the end to be honest. Whilst I hope that Tails had a fabulous birthday, it seems that everyone has got bigger things on their plate nowadays than this club.

Which, may I add, sucks like hell. I've got some fond memories in this thread, and my hope of making more when I was still an active member was very high, but alas, all good things come to an end, do they not?

Yeah I think the time has come to officially class this thread as dead. It's a real shame as I like Lizzardis have had a lot of fun here and many good memories of the old times. We had a good run so lets not be sad and who knows, there might be a revival at some point in the future.

I wish all of the NGPD members past and (kinda) present the best of luck in their endeavours. We did a lot of good for this site in helping keep crap out of here.

I drink to this, and offer you all a salute for us parting ways. It was going to happen, it's just a shame that it did.

I wish you all the best of luck. As Decky said, maybe a revival will happen somewhere down the line, maybe as the next generation of users rolls in, but let this thread be a part of NG history, as a learning curve for those who want to try it again, for a lesson in dedication by a selection of users who pulled it together through thick and thin, and as a collective stack of memories, both good and bad.

So long NGPD. It's been fun.

323 pages of fun later, it's finally over. Yes, I've been here for the whole damn time, just lurking silently for most of it. :(

But... that's the thing: I can always just go back through the old times by re-reading them all. With the exception of the stuff that's been deleted by people getting their post history nuked, it's all still there. I mean, yeah, I wouldn't say no to another 323 pages of it at all, but I'm happy it happened regardless of if it'll ever happen again.

I'm not surprised it died though. Between Tails fucking off and not leaving any system for electing new commissioners behind, and the whistle system that the thread relied on for most of its activity disappearing, the chances of it surviving the current website design and activity levels were slim at best. The only ones who are interested enough in B/Ping to talk about it are usually out of the NGPD rank limits in 2 weeks, and now with the whistle gone, what else is left to discuss here?

I tried to stay as active as possible during my time here even if I was only a member for 165 pages, completely dwarfed by your 323. When all is said and done I'm really going to miss my time here. Probably why I keep posting despite the fact that I've said my farewells. One final salute I guess.

140 pages I've been here, technically my first post here. I got rejected for my first application(I didn't have the best posting habits and was below the 50 posting minimal). I did get accepted at page 488 as an apprentice...thus began my joyride here. My first year here was when this club was really rolling. This stretched over a 2 year period as well, still haven't been promoted yet!

I, for one, hate to say good bye's. Mainly because I hope dearly I'll drop by this place again and it'll thrive once more. Whenever the whistles come back is when this place will do just that again. Maybe it'll be without us, but the club will eventually move on to something.

Do not take this as a good bye gents. But might as well take my chance to make probably my last salute. Until then lads, or to anyone who even graces this old relic.

so many sad faces, I'll put a happy one just to mess with you guys!

I, too, am sorry to hear that the NGPD is closing it's doors. While I did a lot more lurking than posting here, I was keeping an eye for the future potentials for the Elite Guard. We've been going through our ups and downs as well, but I am happy to say there are a dedicated few that keep the flame alive and still fight the good fight.

So for all of you working your way towards private, and then beyond - keep doing what you can to build up your reputation: vote fairly, make thoughtful and helpful posts, and strive to be someone better than average. When you reach Private (or better) and you think you're up to the challenge, drop on by the Elite Guard Barracks and ask to join - and if you qualify, you'll be added to our ranks.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them on the EGB Forum or send me a PM if you prefer.

It was a good run. Leave with your heads held high - there is no shame in your game!

It truly saddens me to see this place die. I've been a member here for 2+ years now and feel it's somehow partly my fault that the thread has died. I've not been very active here, if anywhere on NG, due to real life commitments.

I hope that one day we revive this from the ashes.

Well, today I came onto this site for the first time in a year, it seems only appropriate I showed up in time to see this thread laid to rest. Now reading this thread I intended for this to be the final time I ever post or even go to this site. I loved this club, and I loved you guys more than people I had known personally for years back when this thread was active. Back when I joined this thread I was a silly little middle school kid, now I'm a high school senior looking forward to college. This Newgrounds is a strange place, one that doesn't remind me of the NGPD's glory years. So with this I say so long and farewell. I'll never forget you guys.

Goodnight, sweet prince.

Reading these final goodbyes are bringing tears to my eyes. When I joined this club I was but a Freshman going toward my Sophomore in high school, with little to nothing to do. Now I too am a High School senior, preoccupied by constant fucking around with my friends.

The NGPD is probably the sole reason I'm not a total moron on the internet, and honestly when I joined, I would have put some of you down on the same list of friends as my real life ones. I remember the B/P competition and friendly rivalry that Decky and I had when I joined, I remember getting over 300 points in a week one summer, My first Clock Day - Getting nearly 300 points in that one day.

Men, I will miss you all dearly. If any of you wish to continue to keep in touch, feel free to send me a PM; or feel free to add me on Steam, I use the same alias there as I do here, just look for my creeper icon.

As much as I want this club to come back to the glory days, I know it's simply not possible without the essential tools (Whistle system) and overall interest.

Farewell men, and good luck in all of your future endeavours.

I won't declare this place dead. Because I'm too lazy. I still think someone out there has the nuts to take over and point it in a direction that's true to it's founding goals and principles. This place needs another Peregrinus and another Tails. It may even be in a different thread and with a different name, who knows. But... NG is a different place than what it was back then. People don't seem to care anymore. I don't know.

Oh well, I suppose I'll top it off by acknowledging that today is the NGPD's 7th birthday with song and mouth and stuff.

Happy birthday to you.

Happy birthday to you.

Happy birthday dear NewgrondsPoliceDepaaarrrtttmmmeeeeennnnttttt!

Happy birthday to you!

May you rise yet again someday and do some good in this godforsaken community of faggots and statwhores... Cheers, gents.

Tails I'd do it but I really haven't a clue about what would be needed. I just don't know what would keep this thread alive anymore. Best of luck to anybody that tries but I think it's time that I stopped.
