I know I'm being a complete dick about this but, I have made an effort to upload an even number of movies and games, every year, so there would be no gaps on my user page. Well now that's being completely shot to HELL!

Not only to I have to upload 4 movies but also 4 games a year to have it all neat and tidy, but I have do in intervals of 4 so that means I have to do 4, 8, 12, ect... movies in a year to keep everything neat!

OH HOW I HATE YOU OCD... :(

I don't know how I feel about all this. It just doesn't look ANYTHING like it did before. I was expecting an update, but this just changed everything about the site.

My only complaint thus far is the level auras and Icons. I really liked the old style. I dunno.

/ It was just so classic...


Does anybody even read these?

This kinda fills me with that age old child like wonderment I first had when I discovered this site back in 2002. The major problem with me last time was the search engine, hope that's fixed up lol.

Some day we're gonna just integrate with a Google API that lets us pull their results into our page.

Everything looks nice and it's nice to see a classic portal, but no more "Turd of the Week"? That's a dissapointment, there where some good ones from time to time that got there.

I actually like the new level icons, but then again I've always been a fan of pixel art.

This who layout is going to take a while to get used to. It kind of feels like a lot of the features of the site are being hidden, and it can be difficult to navigate at times.

Does this work for you?

7 Days of Games

Let me know if something seems lacking there... So far my experience has been that I can find fun stuff a lot more easily. You can also sort by score or views (those are sorted by date).

Wow... this is simply impressive. There is no other way to put it. I thought Newgrounds was spiffy before, but this seriously blows other websites out of the water.

I love the backgrounds and how their colors kind of correspond to Ng's 'colors'; the background on the main page is orange-ish/yellow, the judgment page background is purple, etc. That's really neat. I love the new emoticons, I love how clean, simple, and sleek everything looks, from the forum and userpages to the portals and such (I'm glad you kept the classic movie/game portal - I'll probably still use that for a bit).

The only things I'm apprehensive about are the new icons and auras -- not a huge deal, I just liked the other ones better. I also liked the headers that used to be in the userpages (now replaced with ads). As for the game and movie thumbnails on the front page - I do like them being larger and clearer, but I sort of miss the short descriptions that came along with them! It's nice to see those if I am in a rush and really want to be selective about what I would like to watch.

So far, this has exceeded my expectations. Newgrounds feels even more like 'home' than it did before, which I wasn't anticipating. It feels actually much more catered to its users and contributors than ever before, which is what Newgrounds' foundation is to begin with (along with its amazing staff, of course!). You guys did an absolutely astounding job; I hope other websites don't start doing redesigns that are this awesome!

I'm so proud to be a part of this site! Time to start submitting stuff, huh?

OMG!!! loving the new design already!!! i do have 1 complaint tho: the fact that our instincts are wired to reject change because it isn't what we're used to & it breaks our pattern/routine.
On a side note, wouldn't ot suck to have the site taken down bt sopa (especially just after such a huge update)?


Thanks to me...

I don't recall anyone ever saying "The Newgrounds UPDATE is right around the corner"... Last I checked, anyone and everyone said, "The Newgrounds REDESIGN is right around the corner".

Why you'd expect and small update when a complete redesign has been in the works for years is beyond me.

Personally, I quite like the new site... Especially since the Audio portal just got a million times more awesome.
