I like how the list of medal-enabled games has now been split into multiple pages. However, it now lists the games in alphabetical order. Does anyone know how to sort it by release date?

Great redesign, but now the site looks more complicated to get into.

Lots of great new features, but
>password length still limited
>delete forum sign image feature doesn't work
>listings of movies, etc looks like a picture show, I don't feel like the right message for content promotion is getting across.
>projects manager doesn't seem to have a delete project option.
>would like a delete project option for blank unused projects.
>frontpage looks too busy

Well that's my 2cents

Okay, to be honest I was a little worried about the new design. But OMG this thing is beautiful! I fuckin love it great job guys!

I love having our profile pics instead of level icons now! The new design looks flash without losing that dark atmosphere I love about Newgrounds and the new emoticons are awesome :)


The trick is to use the drugs once to get there, and maybe spend the next ten years trying to get back there without the drug.

The points are getting deposited (from what I saw on my end at least) it just isn't giving a proper notification at the moment.

I couldn't get through last night. I was trying to say that I liked how colourful everything was now. I haven't really had time to check out all the new features and changes yet. I'll do so when I get back from uni. I can tell though there's a lot of stuff I will need to get used to. Especially the new level icons seem a bit strange to me.

Anyway, good job NG team. Hope you had a nice party when the design was up. You've earned it.

I miss the feature of being able to stop flash films/games when you were on their page. Unless I'm missing something?

I think it would be cool if you could choose what you want the background to be in specific (or all) places. I personally really like catoblepas art in the 'Under judgement' page. It's awesome.

At 2 hours ago, Alter-native wrote: I felt that the site was a little more easier to navigate before this update. Now, I find it harder to find all the classics because now I have to navigate through all these different pages to find them. For instance, I get nostalgic for old games like the brawler Shinobu, Power Fox, and the sword fighting maze epic, Ronin Spirit of the Sword.

The problem with this system is that I manually managed it and did a bad job at it. It was good if you wanted to play a classic game but not good for anything else. My personal experience with the new system is that I've been finding lots of fun stuff I would have missed on the old site. And you can use your favorites list to keep track of things you want to revisit later.

Then there are little things, like how there used to be a little drop down menu thing to the left siderbar of a movie that I could click to check out other movies by the same author, instantly. I don't see that anymore.

I used to live by that dropdown box until we launched user pages. Once we had those, I would go to user pages and visually browse and never used the dropdown anymore. I was hoping no one else did either but now I'm curious how many people still liked it. It was actually a bit of a drain on the database, having to pull in every submission by everyone credited on a given submission.

However the Clock Crew pages were well made and had a complete detailing of a significant moment in portal history. I mean seriously! Strawberry Clock is this generation's Marcel Duchamp. That and the fact that Newgrounds would have a section devoted to satirizing itself was a wonderful idea and spoke true to its nature as the free site that is "Everything by Everyone" and "The Problems of the Future, Today!"

The Crew collections were moved under the Newgrounds parent collection a while back. The Clock Crew collection is still there.

And then, there's the fact that you got rid of the literature sections. I loved reading your stories Tom, and I'm sad that newer kids are either not going to read them, or not be able to find them.

I moved all of these to the Wiki so we would never have to manually re-style each page ever again. There's a section about events and a section with stories. It was getting really painful to update every single one for each redesign. :)

It's like Tom is obsessed with the way his site looks, as if he thinks his site needs to look pretty and high tech in order to attract new fans. Yet his site was always awesome and popular despite the way it looked, and even with this well intentioned but misguided redesign, it's still pretty awesome. It is all about the content; the artists, programers, musicians, the new age of storytellers and madmen. I could care less if my buttons light up with pretty colors and make sounds.

I think I just get tired of how the site looks and each layout ultimately hits a wall for potential. A fresh site brings fresh energy and helps keep everyone inspired. That being said, I don't want to do another big redesign for as long as possible. Just lots and lots of improvements.

It's like 50% every previous design, 50% something new.

I like it. Alas, I am another one of those users on an old Mac PowerPC, so there are some Flash features I will never see. The submissions are backwards-compatible though, so that's good. They play just fine. I'm mostly just missing out on ads, I think. Hee-hee!

Oh, are our custom page headers a thing of the past? (I don't really expect an answer -- you guys have got to be busy as hell -- but if I didn't ask, there would be no chance of getting an answer).

Anyway, overall, looks nice!

It might be nice if the Game Dev tools link(s) was more prominent. Maybe on the same page as "Submit a Game", "Submit a Movie", etc.

Is it me, or did updating the site lose me my saved game data?


...is it me or has politics suddenly become a series of mandatory lightning rounds in a mandatory game show?
