It's time for our annual Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Carve an original character from NG and post your picture in this thread to particpate. You can also post your pumpkin in the Art Portal with the "pumpkin2017" tag.

The TOP THREE pumpkins will receive honorary Supporter Status, which you can gift to a friend if you're already a supporter.

Don't have a pumpkin? We're giving supporter status to each of our THREE FAVORITES in Carve 'n Share, as well.

Deadline for all entries is November 1st.

Check out the 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007 winners to get in the spirit.

If you're looking for inspiration, browse the best original comedy from the past year. It would be cool to see some Sublo & Tangy Mustard pumpkins, or 2 Ants 1 President, Heatrup and Oatly, The Shooting Stars, etc!

Want to make art, music, animation or a game to celebrate Halloween? Thirteen days remain to join our Halloween Spooktacular and potentially win some money!

Time is running out to snag this Skelotank T-shirt by @PhantomArcade!

NG Theater Screening

Thursday, October 26th is the NG Theater Screening at Ambler Theater in Ambler, PA and a bunch of us will be there. It would be awesome to see you there too if you're in the area! Click that link for more details.

@FuShark created a poster for the screening and we're selling prints via SharkRobot.

I'll close this out with last year's winning pumpkin, Pumpkins for Lonely Men by @reanimatearts, inspired by Toys for Lonely Men by @misterIG:

  • Toys for Lonely Men
    Toys for Lonely Men by misterIG

    A horrifically dysfunctional relationship between two odd characters.

That would be a cool pumpkin, we could roll it out every year as a supporter ad.

Can I carve my name and the words 'undying love' in your back while you sleep at night, Tom?

No but you can carve that on a pumpkin and stick an NG character in the corner and that would be fair game.

You know @Tomfulp.

A lesser man would just say "Fuck you" and laugh, but your subtly is warming and cool.

I'd say it's your fault for not playing that autistic TF2 game mode, m8. But I still love you.

And I really am sorry, my man. Also sorry you dropped last.fm so that's out of the picture too.

I've tried to carve a pumpkin

https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/551135/group/54/play/1111631?id=551135

(I know it's awful, but still).
The problem is, when try to open it, my carving isn't shown at all, it shows a blank state punpkin. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to use a certain browser?

I see that it's not only my problem. This creation has the same problem

https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/551135/show/usergenerated/group/54/play/1111641

UPD: seems to be browser problem after all. Pumpkin made in Firefox is visible. Pumpkin made in Opera isn't. Maybe some browser properties set wrong, but I'm not good at this. Now I'll redo my idea in Firefox. Sorry for bothering with lots of posts

Okay. I promise this is the last one. The problem isn't in the browser, it seems to be in the title lengh. When I made it shorter, everything went okay. Gonna post this in game comments also (though I guess it was surely mentioned already and I'm just a fool)

Here's that tasteless trash that I used so much everyone's nerve on

No pumpkin tradition over here, so guess I'll mosey over to Carve n' Share!

Wish there was an easier way to search for submissions in the User Creations thing though, with over 30,000 to choose from it'd be cool with some-kind of text-based search, or by specific user, listed on longer pages, etc.
