Did you guys practice with that layout like a week ago? I was browsing the portal and all of a sudden the flash were like that but couldn't be voted on. I was convinced it was a glitch on my end.
Pop Up doesn't seem to work.
In fact...what if you could do a sort of "play list" using a pop-up feature on a menu of you're home page.
You can watch a complete flash series in complete order (watching the first one will allow the others to finish loading)
I usually just open a bunch of pop-ups and then shift them around in order.
But if they "automatically" would go the the next flash after you click the "X" button...imagine the convience.
Perhaps if you wanted to make it easier to link to games for non internet users you could do something like formatting links like so:
or allow people with accounts to specify no autoplay as default settings
just some suggestions

I have been on NG for a LONG TIME and I have seen many different designs but this is the first one that I have adamantly opposed. The new display is both awkward and broken.
It is obvious that NG is trying to drive traffic to the site which is fine, but it needs to do so in a much less obtrusive manner. If you want movies to autoplay ala youtube, there needs to be a way to pause or stop the movies. This is nonnegotiable.

You have to turn your pop-up blocker off every time you want to watch a movie in pop-up. It's just like Hulu.
A little problem with Flashes that have the Stage scale mode set to none (stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_SCALE;). When you expand the game/movie it will retain the original size, giving you a lot of blank space. Obviously this is specific to each Flash, but I thought I would point it out.
Eh, it's alright I guess. I probably just don't like it because it's new.
I think the space for "related videos" should be replaced by the author information, that seems to be pushed far to down on the page.
Only other thing is that for movies without play button preloaders can start while you're reading the authors comments etc.

Samesies. I hate scrolling.
I know we are in a new age in America and the obesity epidemic is a sensitive issue but seriously, the layout needs to lose some weight. The pop-up format worked best for us little people--I mean, those of us with smaller monitors.
Yay for vectors, right?
It's great that we can enjoy Flash in Big, but this needs help in the Aesthetically Pleasing category, as for the overall page.
Also, I hate change and it's nobody's fault, OK.
The new layout is completely broken for me. None of the tables appear where they're supposed to, the "open in new window" button doesn't work at all, and I liked the fact that Flashes didn't automatically play. It helped to save some of my computer's processing power. Can we at least have an option to switch back?
When the related submissions are on the right: my eyes are bleeding. I like when my game is centered or else it freaks me out.
When the related submissions are on the bottom, I love it!
It is also really sad that the user information are so far down on the page. I feel that it's important that you know who did the movie, what's the audio, what's the score and so on without having to scroll down.
one last thing, when you click the night button you need to press back more to go back to the portal
click on a submission on the portal and go to page - watch movie - press back once - takes me back to portal
click on a submission on the portal and go to page - press night button - watch movie - press night button - press back 7 times - takes me back to portal
i have tried it with all other buttons on the page but thats the only one that seems to do it
in flashes where you can right click and uncheck play to pause it, the audio conitnues after you do so. a problem for people who try to pause to do something and come back to find the audio out of sync :P
i don't like it.
I don't like change...
I'll adapt soon enough, then be reluctant to change it back
The redesign happened, now my signature doesn't match anymore.
Good try, but it needs to be redone again. Author's comments and score and reviews, etc are important, and right now, IMO, it looks like a squashed mess, like one of those miss spell websites.
The HUGE banner ads are annoying as hell though. Why would I want to scroll half way down the page just to vote on a movie? Dumb.

I like the new layout, it fits my monitor perfectly! I just makes the ad banner really obvious now.
But that's fine, that banner is why all this can be done for free from my perspective.
i like it the old way better i have to say, sure the widescreen is cool but a lot of games have weird glitches when you play then in wide screen. like my catch the coin 2 it messes up the collision with the sides of the stage totally.
maybe you should just have an option that lets the devoloper choose when submitting a game whether he wants it to be able to be viewed in full screen or not?
i pretty much never ever post stuff on the BBS so when I do you know its important. so listen up! besides, look how big my penis is! RESPECT!
So the new layout obviously has some problems, but everything new has it's initial problems. The problems get worked out and the end result is usually a pretty gratifying experience. Why just look at Windows Vista!.... okay don't look at windows vista....
But really, yeah there are problems (and a lot of them are specific to the individual user's computer), but do you really think the guys behind this awesome site are just gonna leave it in tattered shambles? Hell no! They're just trying out their new thing, ya whiny douche-cocks! Give it some time. Jeepers!
Yes the site isn't quite as pretty and aesthetically designed as it was yesterday, but if anything I think that's a sign of good things to come. In the beginning of the year Tom mentioned a lot of big changes to come, so what makes any of you think they're going to end here?
(I've heard rumors about an Art Portal and a Lit Portal... hmm... seems like those would take up just enough space along the top bar to match the widescreen layout.)
Also, no one's forcing you to watch movies in widescreen mode. It's an OPTION! Since when is having more freedom and choices a bad thing? I'm sorry, I thought this was America.... turns out its actually a website that can be viewed all over the world. My bad.
Anyway, what I'm getting at is that you haters need to just calm down and give it time. I'll admit I'm not in love with all the changes myself, but I'm not throwing a fit about it and giving up on Newgrounds. I trust that these changes will eventually be for the better.
I personally can't wait to start making flashes in widescreen now that I know I have the option.
***I WILL ADMIT though, this is probably a wet dream for spammers who don't include a load screen and play button. The Autoplay thing is too idealistic. It would be a snazzy feature if this was a site that had only the highest quality flashwork, but that's never been what Newgrounds is about. That's gonna need some attention, but I'M CERTAINLY NOT GOING TO POST AN ENTIRE FRONT PAGE BLOG WHINING ABOUT IT.... not that anyone would do something like that.
High five Bob, lilJim and PsychoGoldfish! It's a terrific first step on the road to a better Everything by Everyone.
