I like it how I was the original guy who took the trouble to register the fucking wikigrounds domain in the first place, install MediaWiki on it, write actual full-length articles on it (and on the previous incarnations of the site), design a Newgrounds-themed style sheet for the site, and eventually took it down but had the basic courtesy to leave a backup out there for anyone who wanted to revive it.

Let's all forget that regular users of this site took the initiative to try to make one in the first place, but that was quickly defeated by the choice of the NG community to vandalize the site and create nonsense pages about themselves to boost their already inflated egos. But things are different now. Because the admins made it.

Not that I'm criticizing their work or trying to say 'well, it's about time', but I think I'm entitled to some recognition after hosting Wikigrounds for over a year.

Et voila...?
I didn't know if by making him look natural, you meant cartoonizing him, but when in cartoon form, I would imagine dogs look even more similar than they already do.
I have a PSD too if you DO like it, but I'm not assuming anything, it only took a few minutes..

The wiki looks cool. Maybe it will reduce the use of Wi/Ht section.

I donated a dollar to Blizzard, it didn't show up though. Im glad that he got all the money he needed, and so fast too.

I'm planning to write some AS3 tutorials, I've never felt that the flash portal or BBS has been the correct place for them.

Y'know, this really is one of the greatest websites on the internet. I loved it before, but I just spent 20 minutes reading stuff in the Wiki, and now I love it more than ever. Its really inspiring, in a lot of different ways. I haven't touched my Tablet in almost a month, but I'm absolutely going to pick it up tomorrow and animate late into the night, because I can't wait to contribute something.

Ditto. I would be willing to dust off the old tutorial writing muscles on a better platform such as the wiki.

I signed up for some affiliate accounts, and viola, Newgrounds lived to see another day.

I'm assuming that comment is in my direction, as you wanted to know the workings of the "You might also enjoy this" section of the flash portal, for which I apologise. I did promise to get back to you on that, and haven't as of yet.

-- Thats absolutely fine-- I entirely agree with you.
Thanks for the detailed reply.
I would not have expected NG staff to make our wiki their official one, nor indeed would I want to. We are free to say things which might be true and verifiable, but not what you would seek to say.

Best of luck with the new wiki. If any of you want to talk to us, please do. Feel free to lift info if it is convenient to do so, though it would be nice if we got a bit of credit, should that occur.
However, should you all deem that you would rather not be involved with us, I do actually understand, its a proffesional decision you might have to make.
Meet you in the UK sometime.

Blizzard should definenyly be added to the group pic. I think he could fit better behind Strawberry Clock and infront of Dad... or he should just replace that guy on the left hand side, that guy doesn't seem as important as Blizzard.

The wiki looks great and the Game and Movie sections is a brilliant idea. I definitely think there's more that could go down there though, how about recommended control schemes for popular game genres?

I REALLY think Newgrounds could do with a license free sound effects library too, its so hard to find decent gun/bullet sound effects these days! Im not sure if it could be user generated, I imagine it would be a lot easier for a copyrighted file to slip through, but its still an idea.

...

1) You must be able to write well and organize your thoughts in a succinct manner.

I consider myself a good writer, and I alway double-check what I submit online.

2) You must be a familiar user who has been actively involved with the site for a while.

Is six or seven years good enough? This could be a great opportunity for me!

The results can be impressive. Ego promoted three of his old movies at the end of Mr. Literal, they combined they generated almost as many daily views as Mr. Literal itself.

Some audio guys have actually been working on resources for sound libraries.... The question will be where exactly that goes... Whether in the Wiki or some extension of the Audio Portal. When the AP first launched we allowed sound effects but that got ugly REAL fast, so it would have to be an approved pool of contributors in the future.

And YES, gaming control schemes is something I've always intended to standardize! The question is, WHAT WILL THOSE STANDARDS BE.

Me personally, I always use A, S, D for my action keys - this goes back to playing emulated Neo Geo games and that is the control scheme I always use.

Game Maker popularized use of the Z key, so a lot of indie devs who make Flash games still use Z and X a lot.... WHICH WILL WIN? My gut says to always go with Neo Geo.

- No, really, it isn't. We prefer to be independent and seen to be so. This new wiki will be a useful source for us, but we will combine it with other sources, including our family of other Wikias, to get a different picture and tell things our way. I wouldn't be at all surprised if one or more of our team took up Tom's offer to help with this one. We already use the closed-edit wiki of Clockipedia as a source of info on Clocks and we link back to it; we do not think of it as a rival.

Oh, please, please!!!

We could get much more variety of sounds if a width of sounds were available. If the library were made, I would like to see some encouragement to make new types of sound- not 150 explosion noises and 100 farts. In fact, one of the reasons why stories get so samey is because people make them to go with the same old sounds they find on sound sites. I would definately encourage the Dragons & Spirits to contribute- you can have some of mine, such as the volcano rumble I made because I couldn't find one on any site. It would also be fantastic if any volunteers could clean up and improve filesize for sounds in said library. In fact if filesize on sounds was a significant criteria in the library, you could get an improvement in the bandwidth of NG submissions. Once the library was established you could get people coming to NG primarily for the sound library too, improving traffic.

oh, please please please!!!! Sod chat, that can wait. This is a Flash site first and foremost isn't it?

Hey I always thought that this thing in the FAQ needed to be updated, and I see you copy-pasted it into the wiki so I feel like I must point it out so you can fix it.

Why is the staff still ignoring the Icon Helpers portion of the site? I think it is on purpose.

Conspiracy?
