Site Progress

Last week we launched a new community hub and in doing so also ditched the dropdown boxes from the navbar. If you're missing a specific dropdown, let me know because I'm always curious about those things. We are looking at some ideas to further streamline the community hub and I would like to see the option for navbar customization, so users who want things a specific way can have them that way.

Next up is the Audio hub, which will introduce the play all feature we added to the Audio feed - simply click the thumbnail for a submission and it will play everything in the list!

Here's an upscaled sampling of the monster emotes by @deathink, now available for Supporters!

Do you see an "All Forums" button to the right of the "Jump To Forum" link?

Yeah, I like to go right to "Under Judgement Games" to see what's under judgement, but now I have to click to the Games page, then scroll down to find that Under Judgement link. And sometimes I go to "Popular Art", but again...

There is a link to under judgement games and movies on the front page, but I assume you're talking about accessing them from every page.

Oh I didn't notice that, you should make that button a bit more prominent imo.

Same, mine's 1994 though. Basically, it's just Ace of Base on a loop and the sense that everybody around is in a new form of Hell from last nights uppers.

Cool new Emotes by the way.

Can't find anything in 'Community' or 'Your Feed', that shows which of our friends are on/offline, used to be a link in 'Your Feed' that went right to that page.


Vault 101 I have many old and deleted Flash submissions, PM me the filename, maybe I got it.

Thank you newgrounds and everyone who voted for Calloused Hands!

Speaking of the audio portal, you know waht would be cool? Something I just thought about today. I stream a bit and want to play music sometimes, well, itd be awesome if we had a playlist feature, like I could add music to them, ala SoundCloud for example. It'd be cool to promote the NG artists in that regard I think.

We actually do have playlists, they're just a bit hidden. When you're on the song page, look for the three lines in the header above the audio player - to the left of the lightbulb and heart. We need to update the icon because it was made before the association with "hamburger menus" on mobile came about.

Click that icon and you can add to an existing playlist or start a new playlist. Your playlists are then listed on your userpage.

No offense, but I just don't see the use for them and they're very slightly ugly.

If only we had made the Madness emotes supporter only...

The friends list is currently available from your account options page (the gear in the header), under "User Relations."

It will likely become more prominent if more utility comes out of it - for example seeing where your friends are on the site if they are in a communal space where you can interact. A summary of on-line friends on the community hub could be interesting, though.

Congrats to the winners!

I kind of miss the Submit Yours! option from the dropdown lists, but that's minor. The "Help Wanted" section in the community hub is a really slick addition, good thought on that.

Also, rad icons!

Pretty cool to show up in the monthly best twice!
Thanks everyone :)

I'm really glad my short came out before Judge Morty, because that is like the gold standard for what a Rick and Morty fan animation should look like...

Here were my top picks for the month, and yes, I did throw myself a couple of votes
