The voter of the month and winner of $100 is @Xiivi!

BONUS PRIZE FOR Xiivi: TEN YEARS AGO we started featuring Audio on the front page of NG. Xiivi was quick to suggest a front page archive for audio as well. Ten years later, we've delivered! The data only goes back to August, 2014 but it's a start.

Congrats to the winners and thank you everyone who participated in May! That includes everyone who voted, wrote reviews and shared links to content.

Ten days remain to enter the Animation Tournament Open Round.

Have revenue sharing enabled? Our video pre-roll ads should be getting great rates this month but most stats aren't currently feeding into the system so you won't see all the numbers pop up until later. Hopefully there will be some pleasant surprises!

If you're in the Philly area, don't miss the Newgrounds Panel at Too Many Games on June 27th.

Also thank you everyone who came to the panel at J1-Con last weekend and talked to me, @Stamper and @RicePirate.

Please browse the movies section more! A lot of movies miss out on front page and people watching / sharing / talking about stuff helps it get noticed.

It's pretty common for winning games from events to not land in the top five of the month... The other games had themes that may have helped them popularity-wise so they had more total plays and awareness when the voting rolled along. Or people just straight up liked them more, which you can't blame the tools for.

I'm really glad that Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux actually won. Would have loved for it to place higher, but oh well. Félicitations @Gwenngermain !

@TomFulp before I forget, I've been meaning to ask this...what's up with the entire site layout going gray? Does it have something to do with preparing folks for when the site is a singular color when the redesign comes around?

Response to Best of May 2015 2015-06-08 20:05:12


Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux came only fifth ? :s I was expecting it to win easy.. awell. :) Congratulations to the winners anyhow!

congrats to all! my personal fave is Theropods

Response to Best of May 2015 2015-06-09 05:49:18


Theropods is awesome and I'm glad it took the top spot for games.

The rest are some pretty good picks... except for the FNAF at it's place but I suppose tastes differ and all.

Going all grey is something that has been dangled around even before the 2012 redesign launched - @Rob actually suggested it originally and over time the rest of us came around to it. The next update to the layout will retain a consistent color across the site, although we'll still make use of the category colors a little - like we still do now in the navbar and auras.

It has also been a long-time question about whether the skins are too distracting and if people sharing the content might not like the skins that are competing with their content for attention. Right now supporters see the 20th anniversary skin and everyone else sees the traditional orange skyline skin. We're just sorta seeing what vibe feels right for now.

Until you see such videos reach top rankings why complain? The message being sent is that people have liberty on this site to upload what they want, that's what has always made newgrounds cool.

You're literally complaining about an aspect of newgrounds that has been around since it's conception. Look at all the posts you have, and you act like this is something new. For shame. Some people just like to complain.

I honestly prefer the grey over the orange. It's a bit easier on the eyes.

Because Newgrounds always used to be a place where anything that was complete trash would never be seen other than the people that regarded it as such. Now 95% of everything that's submitted is accepted and it's just a dumping ground for people to direct viewers to their Youtube channels.

Good to see Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux made top 5 at least, though #1 would've been deserved, and Sapling a well-reckoned second. Good stuff this month.

Congrats to the winners!

I just updated my front page post with this but in case you missed it:

BONUS PRIZE FOR @Xiivi: TEN YEARS AGO we started featuring Audio on the front page of NG. Xiivi was quick to suggest a front page archive for audio as well. Ten years later, we've delivered! The data only goes back to August, 2014 but it's a start.

We also now have a front page archive for Art, which fortunately was tracking FP items since two months after launch.
