WTF is Newgrounds so addicting... Jun. 30th, 2008 @ 12:28 AM Reply

Ok... so i have gone around Ng and have realized that many people are addicted to newgrounds. It is like an epidemic.. a good epidemic. Like a virus that spawns candy everywhere you go. BUT THE CANDY CONSUMES OUR LIVES. Curses to the candy! Ohh... but it is very good candy.

So this is mainly about WHO IS ADDICTED TO NEWGROUNDS AND WHY, and Why newgrounds is addicting.

Its like drugs or something.

I've always said that NG is an acid trip. You have a fun, but crazy time while viewing random crap and quality animations run across your field of view. And after you're done, you want to do it again, and it's hard to stop.

Newgrounds isn't a drug, but it is an addiction. It just hasn't been made illegal yet.

Yet.

There's a lot to do here. But this isn't really a problem, so I don't see how it belongs in this Wi/Ht forum. Good luck with fighting your disease/addiction, if I analyzed your post correctly.

It's a habit forming hobby, I'll give you that. I quite enjoy lurking around the forums, while keeping the portal checked and writing reviews for flash that I feel need or deserve my attention. For me, it's a hobby that I've kept going for over 4 years now and I don't think I'll stop any time soon.

I am addicted to Newgrounds. I spend so much time here then searching other sites in the net, which is probably why I'm not on here less. If I try to leave, it just keeps calling me back 0.o

Well not literally.

well, like, you couldn't, like, find it because, like, you're dumb, god

What a great start on a thread. I hope I get as many pages as i did on the WTF Kitty Krew Forum.

I think that you become addicted to the NG coke when you reach level 5.

That's at least 104 straight days wasted on this site. Damn. I've wasted more time, though :\.

That didn't take long. At least most of it is quality posting.

Well, I like NG for the hilarity and all of the non-assholes... i.e. most of us in Wi/Ht

Yes you should learn here, then you can post in the general with out the worry being spammed and trolled.

Well actually, Pimp probably isnt addicted to Newgrounds because he barely does anything here. He is addicted to voting 5 times a day though.

I honestly come on newgrounds in the morning and don't get on any other websites unless I'm doing something like research for an assignment. Newgrounds is basically the only thing I do when I'm on the computer. It is very, very addicting.

I use it as my way to escape reality and the difficulties of life though. That's why I keep coming back.

When I first started posting I was addicted, but now I'm only here sparingly. I'm now addicted to a different forum site, lol.

I just can't see myself leaving newgrounds for another site. God I make it sound like I would be cheating on it.

I haven't ever been to another website that has a forum except for that one that I was on with you MinusNick, but we have both left that one now.

Ah, so that's your hope... Trying to recreate your old magic, eh, FatKid? This, like the last, probably belongs in General, but we all know what a toilet that place is; it would get filled with shit and leave the first page in an hour, likely never to be seen again. Not as bad as the last one would have though, since NG addictions are a less controversial topic, for the most part, than spam crews. Of course, that also means that you might not get as many pages out of this.

I think that you become addicted to the NG coke when you reach level 5.

Bullcrap. Addicted since Level 2, October 9 2007! Not to mention that NG has shaped my Internet comings and goings since I got access in September: drewpickles.com, Star Syndicate front shock site, was one of the first places I found my way to, shocked and yet amused at the use of Rule 34 (not that I knew it by name yet). And even now my comings and goings on the Internet, *chan experiences and anime-watching included, spring directly from my Newgrounds experience.

A play on words perhaps? If you're addicted to something, does it not make that something a drug?

People are addicted to Newgrounds because I'm a member here, and they need their daily dosage of me.

The most addicted user I know is this guy called SlashFirestorm. He is kinda weird though lol... since he writes pokemon hentai Fan Fiction. (no offense fire)

He is mainly addicted to making news posts. He has deleted about 200 of them.
