Update on Bandwidth: The hosting facility didn't get their end ready in time, so the bandwidth upgrade has to wait until tomorrow (Wednesday). I'll post an announcement when it happens!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Tom, I'm happy for the updates and all but if this were a normal forum, your ass would've been banned for starting so many new topics about the same thing. ;-)
Just kidding, thanks for the update, I guess I can wait for the upgrade!

i never realized NG was so popular, today at school i was talking about Dane Cooks (kes?) movie today and most of them were like oh yea, Newgrounds, who doesnt know about that. It was weird

So my friend, i salut you, along with wade/james, for bringing all this crazy flash together, and making this site as popular as possible.

How fast is NG gonna be. Also how many people do you think NG will be able to handle on the site at once. I also noticed you mentioned that it gets real slow around christmas, why if any reason is this so?

Faster than it is now. Depending on your connection.

Lots. Difficult to say exactly how many until we have full weblogs back up and running.

I also noticed you mentioned that it gets real slow around christmas, why if any reason is this so?

Because more people visit the site during that time period. There's a huge injection of traffic through the Christmas months.

Woah! Is it just me or is anyone else noticing a huge increase in speed here on Newgrounds? Portal's loading in about a second, BBS is as well.

Is this the new bandwidth at play?
