On Tuesday, October 6th at 2pm, we will be resetting the Art Portal scouting tree.
All of your art will remain, but you will no longer be scouted. We are starting from scratch with a new foundation, and scout invites now require your confirmation.
This means you may get scout invites via PM from multiple people, and you can CHOOSE who you want to be your scout, rather than have no control over who scouts you.
We're keeping a back-up of the old tree but expect that within a week, the Art Portal will be close to normal and better than ever.
If you don't wish to be scouted, don't check the box to showcase your art in the Art Portal. It will remain solely on your page and the option to be scouted will not be available.
New in the store: Exclusive autographed Super Meat Boy comic by Edmund McMillen!
This comic was made as a press promo, but we have 50 autographed copies available for just $5 each.
Check out the Super Meat Boy intro:
In related news, Edmund had an unexpected hospital visit this week and lacks insurance or a public option, so he has to pay out of pocket.
If you've enjoyed Edmund's games, please make a donation to help him out.
If you can't donate, tell your Facebook, Twitter or real-world friends about his games so he can make more ad money:
He's been entertaining the NG audience for nearly a decade, so show some support!
October's Monthly Writing Contest has been announced. The theme: Punkoween!
Vert conducted a poll where twenty popular NG artists responded with their favorite Flash and authors on the site. Here are the results!
Also please read up on our Halloween Flash-Off, with prize money and stuff.
i wish edmund well
I'll buy a couple comics. And sell them on eBay when the game comes out for 20 times the price. THANKS, NEWGROUNDS.
Cool news, I hope that Edmund gets better soon!
The "new" scouting system sounds interesting, I guess that now people will stop complaining about getting unscouted because the person who scouted them got unscouted too.
sounds like a really good idea to let the artists choose whom they wish to be scouted from! fingers crossed that the change happens smoothly :)

Wait I don't really get it. Is it going to have a redesign or is it just the scouting system that's gonna be modified?
Well it sure sounds pretty interesting, though.
nice to finally see a post about Meatboy, loved it for so long.

Hope Dr. Fetus- I mean edmund(obviously) gets well soon, but doubt my scabby english money will do him any good, actually it would but i'm a penniless fool.
Get well soon Ed, bought a bunch of those comic things to add to the Fallout Lunchbox prize packs
Good call. A lot of people are complaining about the scouting system, and I thinks it's good to start fresh!
So this means I'll be in the art portal?!
I'm so happy.

Oh ok, thanks for clearing me up.
Tom's sentence was confusing me a bit :P
I'm glad buying that super meat boy pamphlet/comic book went to a good cause. I would advertise his games on facebook or something but I have no friends.
I bought the dad plushie and mask, so I'm all set for a halloween costume oh yeah.
I think I might also write something for the writing contest this month if I can get a good idea. It will be my first entry to one so I'm nervous I might fuck upa dn break a rule or right something that is just god awful.
