I already regret saying it because it wasn't a necessary part of the debate. Oh well I guess it makes NG more entertaining at the end of the day.

I completely agree.
Although he hasnt submitted alot of his new work to NG, his ability to animate w/o a tablet is simply beautiful.

You contribute so much to the community of this site that nobody has a right to complain. You're the CEO of NG and frankly, you don't HAVE to give out all this free shit.
But yeah you are right, it is funny.
liljim, to be honest, that was a really nice speech. I will now try to answer your questions...
The reason why I am bothered is because I feel there is a sense of bias towards devoted members. Tom said himself that he likes giving tablets to those who have gotten crotch-deep into NG. I think that is the wrong train of thought...
If I were Tom, and wanted to giveaway those very same tablets, I would rather choose people who have a lot of skill or talent, and it wouldn't matter to me whether they were members on Newgrounds or not. This way, those who got the tablet will spread the word that Newgrounds is a truly genuine site that truly cares about others. All sense of bias and corruption would be removed. Even if they were not members, they would be more inclined to join because of the no-catch gift. (Then the non-members might also get their other friends to join as well. It's a great sugar rush) And since I chose based on talents, I would get even more quality works on my site because I chose based on experience, and not devotion. Being a loyal member, an 'ass-kisser', is a worthless human being in my opinion. It may sound harsh, but that's just me. You can just simply ignore everything I say if you want.
Also, is it really because of that moment... where you just happened to find that animation 'Salad Fingers' , and you frontpaged it.... are you saying that it is because of that exposure that led to the chain of events that leads to his success today?
If so, then he must have been be pretty lucky. But it is not like this site was designed in the first place to help others grow. That is just a side-effect of the mass popularity of Newgrounds! Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is a matter of opinion, however I will not dwell into those subjects.
I explained the reason I care in the first few sentences above...

In defense of that statement, I said, "I really like giving Wacom tablets to people who have gotten crotch-deep into NG.", I didn't say "I only give Wacom tablets to people who have gotten crotch-deep into NG."
In general I like seeing people participate in the full NG experience. It's one thing to come here and watch stuff, it's another to come here and submit something... But it's something much much greater when you actually start collaborating with the people you meet on NG. On one level it might be as part of a big collab, but I get most excited when I see an animator team up with a writer and a voice actor (or any other similar combination). It makes me feel good because it means that creation, that partnership and that potentially life-long friendship exists because those people met here on NG and decided to make something together. That's NG at it's best.
So while I don't only give Wacoms to those people, I do like it when I get to give them Wacoms.
Now that you explained it like that, I can fully understand what you are trying to do. Thanks for clearing that up. Simply put, you are trying to care for your own community.

Congrats RedHarvest on the wacom.

Personally, I didn't care for the Disney Collab AT ALL.
And I'm sure that RedHarvest has a tablet already.
I the werewolf have spoken and let my words be the truth.

i do maek fixd yuot post tom. You very well know you're not allowed to neglect any part of NG or everyone who feel neglected including myself will go WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HH and then o the mandatory wrist-slitting whilst mixing the blood on the keyboard with some salty tasty tears of neglegation.
If I had Flash i'd make an animation out of that, I think it makes alot of sense and would be very beautiful to watch.
NG BBS CROTCH COMBIIINNNEEE!!!

i've just been waiting for the chance..i would love to screenwrite for a talented animator. I don't post most of my things online, though. I just think of them. I've written some down in a notebook before and had my friends read them. they enjoyed them quite some bit.

get back in your cage Tom.
I put Wacom Tablet on my christmas list about 2 years ago..
and Santa Clause actually delivered me my $100 tablet.
I was so excited that christmas.. and went on to making this animation
probably the most frame by frame work i've ever done at the time all because of this wonderful tablet. I set my tablet up with special keys. So when I press one of the keys it will be either an "insert keyframe" or "insert blankframe" which makes it so much easier to animate.

There are lots and lots of webshops were you can buy your spare tablet stuff, just pick one of the country you live in, because that's easier for the shipping.

If you don't want to program for programming, don't bother, you'll be awful at it. It's not a 9 - 5 job.
I'd agree with both, actually it's true that to be a pogrammer u should be able to work 48 hours no stop, but this aint makin a good programmer or not, that's talkin about someone who's passionate, or who has a deadline and still haven't done his work...I had to do this kinda thing last week, in a 48 hours span I had 5 hours of sleeping, and 30 hours of no-stop programming (i really mean no-stop), because I had a deadline for my upcoming exam...in the end the project was still half-done, and i nearly got the exam messed up, but it was fun nonetheless :) if u wanted to be a programmer, and still think about it, imo u should just buy a c++ basics book and read it, it's not that hard actually, as long as u keep thinkin like a machine :P

it's an actionscript3 library to include and not a program per se. Start making an actionscript3 project and include flixel
Here's the Hello World tutorial. It's for flashDevelop, the free AS3 IDE but there's tuturoials for the other big flex environments too on the flixel wiki.
