Lots of people being reasonable about this, still a surprising amount of backlash. You know NG is for things other than Geometry Dash, right?
Really, I don't completely understand why some artists don't want their music being used in it, but at least respect what they want. There are people that use Newgrounds for reasons that have nothing to do with GD. Some of them have even been here longer than it has. Not that I'd expect people to understand "respect" when half the unscouted submissions are MDK tracks reuploaded without permission, or sometimes even credit.
I love the idea of new fans finding my music through a game (still don't think I made it on the whitelist though), so I should be the one complaining about the new rules, but here we are.
