hahahahahhahahahhaa. OMG. even tho i kinda hate clocks. that wuz funny and your right. he is level 2 but then again anybody can join. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!!! from this day forward i will judge clocks as if they are like anybody else. to tell the truth they are just like us. but in other words they are in there own little club. just like i'm in the blam club which is a lil club. and i want to make this also clear. just because i am judging clocks just like others. doesn't mean that i will give you good scores and good reviews on the shit portals that you guys some time make. And i also make this clear for clock crew members. If your gonna make shit then your gonna get shit reviews and ratings from us. you should know this by now. I also would like to say that even tho tons of people hate the clock crew they are known to have brought out some pieces of art in the portal. which meaning " some of there portal is the shiznit " I know a bunch of you think i'm going soft. but i got news for you ASSES. i ain't changed a damn bit. i just am turning over a new leaf as my parents would say. so i leave you guys with what i have said. i hope it reaches all the Clock Crew memebers in time. especially the member i am writing from. and yes maybe just maybe there is a heart for the Clock Crew in this Dark as coal heart as mind. (people to be honest) i just slashed Clock Crew because it was a time waster. this whole time i've thought the Clock Crew was pretty good in some of there work. and then in other movies i wonder what the flying fuck they were thinking. but in other words Good Job for many of the Clock Crew.
Who is that guy laying down on the psychiatrist's lounge in the movie Strawberry Clock VI? I've seen him in some other clock movies. Also, why doesn't StrawberryClock make any of his own movies anymore? I only see movies from other clock members.

i'm working on blaming the movie's that you said to blam.
leave the clock crew alone! just because they have asian/african (delete as appropriate) backgrounds don't discriminate them!
and well, well, well, I'm new to the grounds gold system as you can tell by my level but I've been a fan of NG since Pico was still a new thing (and I forget when that was!)...anyway thought I'd way in with some quick thoughts on the clock situation as I see it:
1. I have to agree with people who want strawberry clock banned...now I'm all about free speech but, Dickey Mouse? That's just fucking sick...that kind of crap has no place on any website, and for NG to support that kind of shit speaks low of it's hosts (who are intelligent and great people by the way) and speaks lowly of it's users (and this is a damn fine community of 'em too I think) so I believe that at least strawberry clock needs banning and we should just ignore the rest of his followers...
2. Read an interesting thing in a review awhile back...someone suggested that the clock crew is the Fulps and some other guy's running the site in disguise to keep things interesting around here...not a bad theory I think, but if it really is Tom and crew...guy's it's already interesting enough around here...we don't need this kind of garbage clogging up an otherwise great site...
3. Assuming the clock crew is legit (or at least one adolescent guy with too much free time on his hands) I'd like to offer you this very simple message:
Listen, have you guys watched a little too much wrestling? Maybe been in to many MUDS or MOOs lately? You think you're rebels or something? You think banding together into a little group is impressing anyone or making you look cool? It isn't sorry guys, most of us grew out of that when we turned 16...maybe even earlier.
Fact is guys you're just annoying, you're movies really aren't that funny, and all you do is piss people off...then you want to throw stones at us for not liking your movies? I agree that no one should vote 0 or X on a movie without giving it a fair shot BUT...you guys seem to think that your movies receive 0's or X's cause people don't like you...could it be *gasp* they simple think your movies suck or are offensive (as I have already stated about Strawberry's movies)...frankly guys whenever you do something creative you open yourself up to criticism, is it fair? Maybe, maybe not, but as you have said yourselfs this is a website and we all want to have fun...so if you're not having fun, well then I suggest you find a new sandbox to play in, because as long as you post movies that offend people, well, they're just going to keep bashing you...but that's your choice, don't cry to Tom about banning users for their actions (even if they are unfair) you have to realize you've dug at least some of this hole your in, and my suggestion is to just move along and play with your own site...
That's my thoughts and I hope it didn't come off like I was kissing anybody's ass, I was just stating my thoughts.
Some clocks did and still does good movies.
Not good maybe, but not bad.
Even StraBerry clock, the concept vote 5 for porn shows that people are dumb, people doesn't know how HTML links work (clicking in the voting window having effect on the movie window...), and that they like porn. TomFulp can't deny this, 90% of ad banners link to porn.
I think there is hypocrisis behind this.
Look at how many votes the clock crew movies had. Much much, this means banners shown and bucks in Tom's pocket. Don't blame me, but Tom is running NewGrounds also for money. No team, crew or movie (except the XiaoXiao) has generated more page views.
You really think Tom would stop this money incoming ? Killing the golden egg chicken ?
At least, new clocks should be removed. Keep the fruits, even maybe the vegetables, and stop new people from joining NewGrounds with a clock in their nick. Clean a little the crap, and newground will be really cleaner.
One thing to consider is that the Clock crew is bringing money, but they probably cost some, some old users left because they were bored of such a spamming...
So to sum up, keep the clocks who made good movies, and delete the ones who submitted crap several times.
And prevent people to register with the word clock in their nick.
As I write this, I'm just thinking that the more NG users registered, the more money and weight vs add companies...
Oh money money money, you always turns every good thing into shit.
Stop dreaming every one, nothing will be removed from the clocks, just posting in this forum was one more strategy of Tom to generate income.
Look..the clock crew are wasting space on NG
and making it look ba with all the crap theyare sending to the portal

Every once in a while I get the urge to post funny emails on the front page, and I don't know why I never do. Yesterday I got a real zinger, so I thought everyone would get a kick out of it. Anyone who frequents The Portal is familiar with the "Clock Crew" - a bunch of names beginning with fruits and ending with "Clock". They submit movies that tick everyone off, and I get TONS and TONS of emails asking me to ban them. Well, yesterday I got an email from the Clock Crew themselves. Have a look!
Subject: "Clock" situation
Dear Mr. Tom Fulp,
I would first like to state that going to Newgrounds.com over the past few days has been a burden rather than the fun, entertaining place it is meant to be. This is due mainly to the fact that the
so-called "Clock Crew" has been dealt a gross injustice by fellow users of the web site. Not only have numerous users of Newgrounds.com offended us several times on the BBS and in movie reviews, but they have also taken the liberty of making and submitting degrading Flash movies using our likeness to convey hatred, anger, and downright bigotry toward us. The following is a list of movies that we feel break the Newgrounds.com rules and therefore should result in account deletion or, in extreme cases, a ban to the users listed.
Provided are links to the movies in question along with the title and user whom submitted it:
anti strawberry_clock - by user "raxar"
anti strawberry_clock II - by user "raxar"
Clock Subliminal Messages - by user "GrandmasterJ"
Life of Strawberry Clock - by user "GrandmasterJ"
Kill strawberry clock - by user "kl0ne"
StrawberryClock: TheTruth - by user "kl0ne"
Madman v Strawberry_Clock - by user "ZidaneX"
Strawberry_Clock Speech - by user "ZidaneX"
Biggest Asshole Winner - by user "Mr_Congeniality"
Die Strawberry clock!!! - by user "Thepoombas"
Strawberry - Orange Clock - by user "Sir_Pizzaman"
StrawberryClock Testimony - by user "waf"
Strawberry_Clock's Fucks - by user "FUCK_YOU_ZILLA"
Not only are the movies both offensive and extremely inappropriate for the content of Newgrounds.com, but the authors make numerous threats to the so-called "Clock Crew," including death threats, threats to our family and friends, and talk of violent or homosexual
acts directed toward us. This harassment is not limited to Flash movies, however, it can also be found in the reviews for the aforementioned movies, and on the BBS chat.
If that is not shocking enough, users tend to vote "X" or "0" without even watching our movies or giving them a score that they really deserve. Several users (Pants01, Mr_Congeniality, GrandmasterJ, ChronoBasher, MrLicky, Quirion_Dryad, and VdIbV, to name a few)
search for our movies and specifically vote "X" or "0" to get them deleted so we cannot be a part of the Newgrounds.com community. These users have not been provoked by us in any way, they simply do not like us because they think the movies we make are "stupid" and
have "no effort" put into them, despite the fact that these people create movies of poor quality themselves or do not create movies at all.
This aggravation has led to a disliking of our visits to Newgrounds.com when having to face the humility of being called a "faggot," among other disheartening words, reading users' posts describing various acts of violence which they would like to act upon us, and having our quality movies deleted for no good reason day after day.
We feel that these users should be dealt with immediately seeing as they are trying to get our accounts deleted and/or banned because they believe that we are somehow violating our Newgrounds.com agreement as well. With the exception of one movie made by StrawberryClock in retaliation for the 13 or so "anti-StrawberryClock" movies, we have not crossed any lines or broken any rules set by the good folks at Newgrounds.com. All we want is fair treatment and justice served for those whom segregate the Portal.
So, what does everyone think of this? :)
Wade bann these fuckers now
Just ban the retards! it would make just about every other user on newgrounds happier and more satisfied with the portal! SO FOR THE GOOD OF MAN-KIND DO IT
Why is this argument still going? Can't you just accept the fact that we're here to stay?
Fucking Clock Crew, someone should go up to their house and beat them with a metal baseball bat. DOWN WITH THE FUCKING CLOCK CREW!!!
Generally speaking, the crew has prooduced poor work. That is a given I think most of us can nod in agreement to. I don't particularly mind all of their stuff as a whole, but I'm also not handing out awards here. Still, you can't ban people just becuase you don't like them and their movies, that gets into a whole censorship issue and make you worse than the people you fight.
Instead, simply continue to vote as you feel, and ignore the crew if you don't like what they have to say. As many have surmissed, they seem to be after attention more than anything, and thus the best thing you can do is let them fade away with lack of interest.
Yeah! I agree with that one guy that sent Tom the e-mail! Of corse I hate clocks don't most of you?! But I don't think it's very bright to make shitty movies about clocks! If you're going to make a movie or game about clocks dedicate it to "Ki1o" and make it really cool. As you can tell most of the clock hate Ki1o because he votes bad on every clock.
Well my point is-Don't make stupid movies about clocks!

That's what i said
I don't mind the Clocks. Several of them are creative. Some of the stuff they submit is shit, but the good movies don't deserve 0's. I think it's unfair of people to give 0's to movies they haven't even watched, just because they are made by Clocks.
Man, u guys get angry at one clock, so the entire clock group deserves 0's? A lot of there stuff is really funny (after seeing CLock Killer, i actually thought "B" was funny, but without that movie it woulda been shit), especially from KnottsberryClock, he has some great movie spoofs. Anyways, just cuz StrawberryClock claims to be "the king of the portal" and submits a LOT of shit, doesn't mean that OrangeClock should get 0s because of it. One bad fruit [clock] doesn't spoil the whole barrel.

Like what seaweed said.It really should just be ignored.
Ive gotten alot of attention by posting shitty movies, is that against the rules? And people are trying to get me banned for THAT? You people are pathetic. Whoever wrote that is right (I DIDNT WRITE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Ban them, they have no lives. All day they spend on Newgrounds.com looking at flash movies and e mail the fulps everytime i submit a movie... people here are SAD. Thats why i picked this site to be an asshole on. Ive gotten alot of attention! I know some 15 year older is gonna reply saying that i suck, but you know what? I dont give a shit? Why? Cause i know im right. This site has more teens than adults. If they are adults they need to grow up. Cause if your making a movie to make fun of someone, you need to get a life. Go outside and play tag or something away from the computer, it will do you alot of good. As for th clock crew, i didnt make it. Some guy signed up as a bunch of accounts (Possibly GrandmasterJ due to his comments about my movie osmosis hones) Just want attention! Now if you dont agree with me, get a life. If you do, good for you having enough brain cells to figure out that i just shit... nothing more.
Wow! That's the fist time I've ever seen StrawberryClock actually speak!

The only problem is that if that system was implemented, then all the folk that come here, already having a bit of Flash talent, wouldn't be able to show it off.
Besides, this whole 'levels' elitist thing is a load of Bullshit.
It might be shorbe (sorry if it isn't) who's still a level 1 guy even though he's evidently spent ages at this site. He explained why this was in a post, basically saying that he's not going to do a load of pointless shit just for no point whatsoever.
Basically, if you needed to become a certain level, then that would stop NG being a site where anyone can show off their shit. It would become an even more elitist place than it already is.
Thing is, there's no real way to prove multiple accounts. I mean, even if they are using the same IP, then it could be 2 flatmates, or siblings or whatever.

This guy is just like that ONE kid in every elementary school that harasses another kid relentlessly, and then runs to the teacher when he finally snaps. Do we want him to get away with this? Of course not. He doesn't really want fair treatment. What he REALLY wants is the freedom to do whatever he wants to piss off Newgrounds users without any kind of fear of the consequences. I estimate that this asshole has been pulling this shit for AT LEAST 6 months. That is way too long. It's time for Tom to step in and put an end to this. Actually, I question Tom's competence for not doing this months ago.
Looking at this letter and how it's worded, I think he has an ulterior motive for writing it. I think he's setting up to sue many Newgrounds users for harassment, but more likely, to sue Newgrounds for negligence. I still think he should be banned with all due haste, but he needs to be told WHY he is being banned. Otherwise, he's likely to take this to court, and with the sorry state the civil courts are in, he'll win. This guy needs to be treated with extreme caution, because it looks like he's about to take advantage of Newgrounds. Please, people, let's not let this happen.
"This aggravation has led to a disliking of our visits to Newgrounds.com when having to face the humility of being called a "faggot," among other disheartening words, reading users' posts describing various acts of violence which they would like to act upon us, and having our quality movies deleted for no good reason day after day."
This proves my point right here. Not only does this portray him as the innocent victim, but he can also help prove his case with it. What sucks, is that I don't believe the fact that all this was provoked even matters. All he has to do is show the court all the anti-Strawberry_Clock movies, and case-closed -- Tom Fulp is in poverty, and Newgrounds is shut down. Immediate action needs to be taken to make sure this doesn't happen. All anti-Strawberry_Clock movies need to be deleted, as well as anti-Clock reviews, profiles, and anything else anti-Clock. This will render his case worthless, and he is once again able to be banned.
Now, on to the lies contained in this letter....
"If that is not shocking enough, users tend to vote "X" or "0" without even watching our movies or giving them a score that they really deserve."
Um, hello? Without giving them the score they really deserve? These movies were made with the SOLE purpose of pissing off Newgrounds users. How could ANYBODY expect anything better than 0s and Xs?
"These users have not been provoked by us in any way,..."
I don't think I have to say anything about this one. He's clearly lying through his ass.
"...and having our quality movies deleted for no good reason day after day."
Excuse me, am I reading this right? QUALITY!?!?!? These movies were like, 3K!!! HOW THE HELL DO YOU MAKE A GOOD 3K MOVIE!?!?! They were nothing but lousy drawings and crude animations.
"...they simply do not like us because they think the movies we make are "stupid" andhave "no effort" put into them, despite the fact that these people create movies of poor quality themselves or do not create movies at all."No, we don't like you because you make bad movies with the sole purpose of pissing us off. Yes, it's true that many of us make bad movies or even none at all, but we also don't go out of our way to piss people off.
"This is due mainly to the fact that the so-called "Clock Crew" has been dealt a gross injustice by fellow users of the web site."
Um, right. YOU make shitty movies just to piss us off, and WE'RE doing YOU an injustice!? FUCK YOU!!!
I think I've proven my point here. I hope something get's done about this asshole this time. I'm tired of his bullshit.
That'd be pretty horrible if it did happen, but realistically speaking, what're the chances of that?

Why not? If you don't like movies made by a particular author, or you don't like a certain series or whatever, just stop watching it.
Saves a lot of time, that does.

Whats the deal with B. U said people were being unfair and voting 0 or X before they watched the movie? That wasn't a movie that wasn't even a picture. It was the letter B. If anyone deserves to be banned. It would have to be the people who clog up newgrounds with crap.
All these people who use 'B' as an example of how crap the Clock Crew are really get on my banana milkshake.
Seriously, 'clog up newgrounds'? 3k doesn't really merit being described as 'clogging up' anything, now, does it?
And how long exactly did it take all you whiners to download 3k and watch it? Did that really annoy you that much?
I'd say that 'vote 5 for porn' is the worst existing closk crew movie.
Having said all of that though, some of those movies are actually all right. Clock Assassin X is really well done, as is 'the Portal is not Enough'
There's no way that you can call those 2 movies pointless crap. There's some other all right stuff, like the 'Burrito Clock Show' (nice idea - not seen anything like that before) and some other stuff that I can't remember without browsing NG, which I can't be bothered to do.
But my point is that some Clock movies - specially some of the more recent ones - are definitely something that can be classed as 'good'.
And remember that I'm apparently a over-judgemental bastard, so if I like something, surely that should tell you something...
