Alright, I have a few complaints about missing features I previously used. Overall the redesign is very cool, so taket his with a grain of salt. However, I would like to regain functionality I previously had.
#1 On the main page of the site I like having the small list of most recent games/movies added to the portal. That was my instant browsing I could see without having to follow any links and still find many flashes. (I would check the page often.) It would be nice to have that box return somewhere on the main page.
#2 When I followed a link it would turn a darker color afterwards. This was an easy way to remember which games/movies I had already experienced even if I forgot the title or picture. This feature is gone because there is no actual text link to follow. I would love to have some way for that to return. (E.G. A small border around each icon that changed color once you had viewed it.)
#3 The ad box is now above the information about the flash. This makes me scroll past the ad to see relevant information. This displeases me and wastes my time. Please return the ad to a position below the author/flash information.
#4 I don't like having to hover my mouse over the stars to see the actual rating. Numbers are much better than graphics in this case. The difference between 3.3 stars and 3.9 stars is barely visible graphically, but often means a world of difference in the quality of the flash. I have no objection to the graphical stars as long as the score shows next to them.
Thank you for your consideration, onward with the redesign!

LOL, you were right.
Redesign is.... different. I'll need time to adjust.

Yep I think from the front page at a glance looks more like a typical flash game website now than one focused on the community and user made content. A little colder, a little more mainstream. Just my feeling.
This is weird. Going to take some getting used to.
the 'launch popup' button should switch to a 'switch to onsite view' button after it launches a popup
The skewed backgrounds look really lazy, and the ads look like part of the content.. which makes the content look cheap.
Otherwise the redesign is really slick and excellent.
Hmm, hard to find the ratings on some of the movies. That usually helps, but I'm just now getting into the new shinny buttons..
I'm loving the design of the site, my only issue is that whenever I browse songs in the Audio Portal (it's really the only thing I look at since anything else takes forever and a day to load with my crappy internet connection), it gives a message that it works best with Flash Player 11. Sadly, I'm on an older computer, a PowerBook G4 running on Power PC, and the latest version of Flash requires an Intel processor, so I can't upgrade my systems to actually listen to the music. This makes me sadface, since I can't afford a new computer (much as I would love one), so I can't listen to any music or download anything new until I manage to save up for that Macbook I want. )':

I think it will look as you tweak it over time as of now its great but lacking some other features.

you have excellent taste in burglar-smashing games

Love the re-design. And I can finally play Audio portal content!
Two things I'd like back though:
1. The "More by this Author" drop-down menu found on content pages. I used these a lot. Especially when there are collabs and the contributors are aplenty.
2. Hovering over submissions in the portal used to give me a quick snapshot. Right now all it shows is the ratings.
These aren't crucial functions by any means, but they would make my NG experience better.
Anyone else agree?
Just not a fan, sorry. Older system wasn't an eyesore, it was much easier to navigate (especially to the portal), I preferred actually seeing my experience points get deposited after watching and voting on five movies/games per day, and I preferred the numerical breakdown that flashes got (3.33/5.00 tells you a lot more then 3 basic stars out of 5 as it's not a review score but a fan score, so the decimals do tell a lot).
If possible, would really prefer it if we could have the option of reverting back to the old look.
The site really kicks ass, it's beautiful. It kinda feels like it embodies all of Newgrounds past faces, and once again adds its own new polish and flare. This new site definitely holds true to NG spirit and hopefully will allow it to flourish more gracefully in the future.
You guys are fucking awesome. <3
