I will happily give blood and my soul as well for newsground but if it money you want I will do so.

Anyway Tom, I compulted Castle Crashers on the Xbox yesterday and only from the minds of newsground can you make us LOL. You hide the final princess face from us thoughout the whole game and after beating the final boss we finally saw it. Admitedly I'm happy I lost the fight for love when I saw her face since I laughed at my partner in the game as he did since he kissed her.

I would love to see a Castle Crasher 2.

Times are tough right now but as soon as I get the extra money I'll gladly support this beautiful website.

Pretty much everyone on 4chan has already heard of newgrounds, its just that people dont really go on it anymore.

To this day I still see dirty ads loaded on this page, as it has been for years. I'll turn ABP off when the ads stop trying to load malicious content.

I wish I could. I really do. In the future when I become rich, I'll definitely be a supporter.

Tom, you're spending too much money for your website. We hard believe you need more money what we get.

Here some tips:

Stop making meetings all around the world. You'll save money and it's pointless.

I saw movies (mp4) above 100 megs. Remove mp4 movies will save money too.

Ads are showing when loading a flash. Remove it. We won't click on the ads anyway.

1) I stopped reading at "Stop". The NG Meets are great and although I haven't been to one, Newgrounds is the only site that I've seen so far, where the admins and normal users and people in general go for meets. I've never heard of, say, Kongregate do this, and even if they did, I wouldn't know much about it.
2) Whut?!
3) Yeah, you won't. Developers earn money through the flash ads that they insert in the game a la the NG API. If really nobody clicked them, why would it even be there? Oh, and since you're not being a supporter and you're talking on others' behalf that "we" (really you) won't click on ads, you're just a leech. A large leech at that.

You have no idea how much it costs to not only host a site like Newgrounds, but to pay everyone who works there. It's ridiculous because sites that are competing with Newgrounds are spending millions of dollars on their websites. Newgrounds isn't paying too much, it's barely doing so.

A huge factor in growing as a community is having presence in the relevant communities, so no, it's not pointless.

Cutting features to save money is a backwards and silly idea.

A lot of people click those ads. Also, developers are the ones that put these ads, and they're the ones that get most of the revenue from it.

It's ok to use store credit - you earned it by contributing to the site. What we really need is for all the casual visitors to step up and help. You guys remember this movie?

The creator set up a Kickstarter to make a game. In less than two weeks he raised $1.4 million from 13,500+ fans.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14293468/homestuck-adven ture-game

If 13,500 NG fans became supporters in a single year, let alone two weeks, we'd have roughly $337,500 and it would have an ENORMOUS positive impact on the site. We could cover expenses and sponsor a shit-ton of content, which in turn would bring tons of new people to the site and improve things for everyone.

We can handle 100 meg movies.

I think you should advertise the idea in different areas of the site. I dunno, maybe some banner on the frontpage or in the portals or something. As I'm sure you know, a LOT of NG fans are simply people who are here to play/review the games and movies, or advertise their music/art portfolio on here, and only a relatively smaller section of the community actually visit the forums. And you're proposing the idea on just the forums.

Sure 'Support Newgrounds' shows up under 'News and Events' in the frontpage but it's just a small box and it's not very conspicuous. Undoubtedly the forum members are on-the-whole more passionate for the site than your average flash gamer or something but considering that a lot of the site's traffic comes from the portals rather than the forums, it could be a good idea to branch out a little to those sections of the site.

We'll be pushing it in more areas of the site - most likely in the banner space on every page.

But seriously - I donated and I'm broke, so there's no excuse not to support Newgrounds as a site and as a community.

I'm poor.

Also, I don't use AdBlock, so not being a douche is sort of like supporting.

Or else you're kindof a dickhead.

Dunno how much good it'll do, but I put up a thread on my crew's forum. Some are kids, some aren't. Maybe one or two of them will decide to stop being such assholes for a day and shell out 25 bucks. Probably not, who knows?

When I saw that older games were being brought back to the "Game Front Page" it struck a fear in my heart. Support Purchase complete in hopes that the game portal can and will continue to be a waste of hours for me :)

Yeah this month has just been... Really sparse in terms of great games. Part of that is less people making games because they are trying other stuff like mobile... Part could be sponsorships becoming more exclusive... But NG needs to get back into the sponsorship game. TRYING.
