@Liljim just finished our latest Supporter perk: Custom emoticon sets!

The launch set is by @Deathink and is perfect for anyone who wants to emote with skulls.

If you're a supporter ($2.99 per month / $25 for one year), simply click dropdown under "Thread Mood:" wheverever emoticon sets are available (forums, blogs, private messages).

Thank you again to everyone who has become a supporter and joined our Wall of Honor. Our long-term goal is to be far less reliant on advertising AND to have budget to do great things such as animation and game sponsorships, bigger prizes and better artist earnings.

A strong supporter base is ESSENTIAL to the future of Newgrounds, which is why we are putting a lot of effort into attracting and retaining supporters. Ad revenue will continue to drop as a result of Adblock adoption and reduced spending on traditional display ads in favor of highly targeted (aka your private data being gathered by Google and Facebook) spending. Paying supporters make us future-proof and success of this system will make Newgrounds better than it has ever been. Every person counts because we intend to hit 10,000 supporters and not stop from there.

Expect more emoticon sets and other perks but if you AREN'T a supporter, we have big improvements on the way for you too.

POST-PAX NEWS

I spent the weekend in Boston, where we were showing Pit People at PAX! Pit People is game #4 from the Behemoth and we also had Castle Crashers and BattleBlock Theater arcade cabinets ready to play.

There was some impressive Castle Crashers cosplay this weekend, check it out: one, two, three!

I also got to see and hang out with lots of great people including @TheLivingTombstone, @jmtb02 at the Kongregate booth, @wittyhobos, @jimp, @jayarmstronggames, @Louissi and Dan at the @ArmorGames booth, @Afro-Ninja, @RicePirate, @digsBot, @nevarky, @Oney, @TadakuniAmano, @toge-games, @Kirbopher, @Manly-Chicken, @kryzon, @Jasonario, @coruptedGames and @KaijuTurtle.

Sorry in advance if I missed you, drop me a PM and I'll add you! Also sorry to everyone I never managed to bump into, like @Zeurel and @ColonelCheru.

Check out Bad Taste on IndieGoGo, @Sherbalex and @Celx-Requin are making it!

Pico Day is May 7th!

Ooh, I'm really digging how Deathink didn't just duplicate the emotions already there. All the NG characters are an awesome touch.

Do we have to pay tickets for Pico Day, or is it free? I just want to know if I have to bring money.

Hey @tomfulp, you vote in the primaries today, or are you un-affiliated with either party?

So what if you weren't invited? Does it cost something or can you just no come. If that's true, why is the Facebook page public?

Wonder if there would be specific holiday response moods (Clock Day, Halloween, Christmas etc.) That would be pretty neat to see.
Also, good job @Deathink. I like how you put Dad's skull in there; nice touch.

Deathink did a fantastic job, as per usual. Thanks for another fun supporter perk.

However I hope Newgrounds won't appear as a freemium website to newcomers in a year or two. It's not like it's anywhere close to be at risk at the moment, but I wish you all the best to keep a balance there in the future.

Party pooper, eh?

I'm registered democrat but have been lame and haven't voted today. I always vote in the main elections but I'm pretty bad about the rest.

Not much choice this year, you can either feel the burn, or hear the cough.
It's okay, some of my best friends are democrats lol
