The response to that Mikey website was much crazier than I expected! We have a bunch of Portal submissions, so we might even make a collection for the poor kid. I am actually working on "The History of the Portal". Right now I am finishing chapter 1, which is the Portal up to the day it became automated. Writing the history of the automated Portal is going to be a big project, so I might need some help. Do you think Mikey should earn a place on there?

If you are looking for more stupid sites to make fun of, Captain_Insano recommended Bibleman. PU!

Guess what! Shok is going on the Warped Tour with the Dub Pistols! You can read about it on this BBS post! Shok has been getting lots of questions, so try to learn everything you need from that thread. Speaking of questions, please stop emailing Shok about how to turn off the frontpage music! I changed the link so it is now at the VERY TOP of the page.

Speaking of which, what does everyone think of the changes I've made to the frontpage? Basically, I replaced that lousy Casino ad with random ads for Newgrounds content, then removed the two giant blocks that were previously promoting NG content! I also integrated the frontpage music into that fun chicken banner, so now I've cut back two of the .swf files that were previously on the frontpage (one being the Flash ad for NG content, the other being the music player). Ross has also made other changes so the frontpage uses less "server-side includes", so now the whole thing should be loading much faster. Let me know if you see a difference!

Yes, it was much faster, by the way, if you like making fun of that mexican idiot look up jesus.com, its a guy claiming to be jesus and looking for a date!

(Here's the response..ass..)
The little "Mikey" movie was one of the funniest Newgrounds entries I've ever had the privelage to lay my eyes upon. Thanks for putting it up! As for the cutting back on the Flash items on the homepage, it makes a big difference, the page loads much faster...even on my shitty dial-up connection.

Bibleman...Mexican Jesus...now this trend is going too far...why is it we gotta jump on the 'Make fun of the weird people' bandwagon...Its gonna get boring, like Mikey. The only funny portal of Mikey is 'No Luck, Mikey'. But...we gotta think of something new...

the jesus site is a jokepage for chrissakes. one of my favorite pages actually...

i know my plea will go unheard, but please, for the love of jesus(.com), dont let it come to a michael/tony collection...

and we dont need to think of something new. living off of fads is no life indeed. remember the early days of newgrounds, when more than half of the fanbase was over 12? fads were MADE by ACCIDENT, not FOUND and gawked over and translated into countless horrible flash movies. FDA was godlike, THAT was a fad (the letters even spell fad when switched around) pico was a fad! not this michael and mahir tripe. newgrounds used to be a fad producer, now fads own you, newgrounds. and once fads own you, the man is next. and im sure the good papa roach fans wont like that one bit. i mean, how are you going to rebel against the government when they've got you by the balls with their crazy fads? think about it, tom and wade!

or has the man gotten to you too...?

happy fourth, fuck the brits

AHHHHHHH!!!! destroy it!
Name ONE other religion that stoops this low to convert people? Make people feel like shit, then guilt trip them, then tell them the only way to save them is to believe in a particular religion? Modern Christianity is a crock of BS! Jesus would shoot himself over this crap!
I mean seriously, if you're Christian go believe it if you want after you decide to be Christian, but don't try to make every person of your same religion . . . . .especially with this crap.

I think you should make it so the site leaves a cookie whether or not you want music to play on startup, it's kind of tedious turning it off everytime I want to read the main page.

Disorderly is the game I've been working on with Zeebarf since last year! As for Wade, he is still around! He isn't here today because it is July 4th.

Ah that, I read about that in alphas.

a thought, tom: you can't live your life in flash. you have to move on to a better game programming language sometime soon, you've got the talent for it, and ill bet ross is the man with c++. then there's wade.

IN response to making a special place just for the michael flashes.... i disagree, it's good for a cheap laugh now but it's not somthing that should be put down in the historical documents... not as good as all your base and stuff like that.. that has replay value, makeing a "michael" spot on newgrounds would just be a waste of time and add more useless clutter.

As for the changes to the frontpage I like em... But what is with that BREAST implant advertisement that always pops up??? thats fucked!!! And as far as the music goes you should keep it on, I mean if people don't like it it's easy enough to turn off!!! YO!

i'm a little confused as to why tom's giving the whole mikey thing so much publicity. first he urges people to make cartoons about them, then, within a day, he showcases one at the top of the front page. and now he wants to include it in the "history of the portal?" as somebody said earlier, mikey's not even that funny, nor are any of the cartoons.

just an observation. it seems a little strange to me...

i definately like the fact that the casino ad is gone, but would prefer if the music could be set within cookies so we wouldnt have to hit it every time.

and what happened to 'leave a message'? is it just me or did that thing disappear. if it returns, it would be nice to see it near the top or middle of the page

I personaly like the change in the front page it is loading much faster i do however miss the option to change the music but if it means faster loading then its cool. mikey should absolutly have a spot since he's such an easy target...oh and that whole bible man thing is definately worth trashing.

I miss those old little movies you had on the front page.. Like

"I've always had a fantasy of a nun goin' down on me"

"Well, I can do as you wish, but you must be single, and be christian"

"Why, I am single, and I am christian"

"Then pull over at the next alley!!"

You know the rest. :(
