Technology has advanced, and fancier games and movies have been created, but I'm seeing less and less of these high quality submissions, and more and more of the low quality ones. One reason I give for this is the low and unchanging bar set for flash to be accepted into the portal (score of 1.60). Another is the behavior of users. 5-bombing for stats instead of voting on the quality of the submission. Neglecting to use the whistle when needed. These things encourage more garbage to be sent into the portal, and better users to travel elsewhere.
Maybe it's just that I've aged and matured, but I feel like the quality of this forum has gone down the drain. I'd say I find 1 out of 10 threads "slightly" interesting. I feel like I can't relate with most people here anymore. It seems as if the crowd is getting younger and dumber each month.
I still have hopeI. I continue to come here quite often, hoping to find something good. Maybe a great new game, or an interesting discussion on the BBS.
This is probably the most well-informed post in this thread, if not on the BBS. I was going to say something similar. You really resumed all of my thoughts right there - I've noticed it too. Newgrounds is slowly going down the drain, people just don't care like they used to.
I, without kidding, blame it on Facebook and Twitter. People have just become self-centered since Facebook got that popularity boost back in 2009.
