Good to see we're updating the peer review/scoring interfaces. Soul Sword and Old Earth hit a huge home run for me this month. Have you heard our talk in the NG chat about voting for an updated 'face of Newgrounds'? I think it's a neat idea to pass the torch. Pico to Cap, Cap to ??? (I'm hoping it's Nightmare Cops next).

I missed that chat but in this case, the voting bar is passing the torch from Pico & friends to Steve. Good 'ol Steve.

Well congrats to the winners of May 2018. Well I had just two problems experiencing on NG. Number one, it would be to fix the user page for the original internet explorer, but I can see the banner on the user pages at Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Number two, it would also be great to disable invites messages from P-Bot, I have personally have nothing against P-Bot and events to vote for the following monthly nominations. I also think it should have a checkbox in the settings, I don't want the message permanently blocked from P-Bot. It should be optional for someone like me, but it could be interested in future contest months later. But it's that I'm not interested in it at the very moment, also I don't want my inbox to filled monthly from P-Bots' invites. I also think that the settings for the userpage (the icon at the top left, not on the userpages) could use some rework, because it's way far behind. Well have a safe summer everyone.


Moving on and looking forward...

Congrats to all the winners and I recall reading about the Shaq-Fu fan-sequel way back in 2011, nice to finally see it come out of development hell.

Hey @TomFulp , is it planned at all to update the News pages so that when we embed a NG animation, it looks like how it does here in your forum post as opposed to this? It's not bad, but just not as presentable/fetching, y'know? Or, I guess, a new way that looks nicer overall

Oh, also, are we able to change our forum icons? Ever since the update, I coudn't see how to do it/won't let me.

So do you mean you'd like it to work like the forums, where if you paste just the URL, it turns it into a thumbnail with description to make the link more attractive? That is something I would like to address there.

Oh, also, are we able to change our forum icons? Ever since the update, I couldn't see how to do it/won't let me.

If you mean the level icon edit option for supporters, you can do that when your user page is in Edit mode, you'll see a link to change your level icon then. We have a note in the task / bug system to bring back the old way of letting supporters click their level icon anywhere to change it but that is another rainy day item.

Sure, anything like that to pretty it up :) I just figured out today that we can embed NG animations, so ultimately the more streamlined, the better.

Oh, no, I meant the avatars, not the level icon. My face there on the top left. I've been able to change my userpage's icon and the banner, but the forum avatar here is still separate.

Il started something for the jam, but I don’t know if is going to be a master piece. My master piece will probably be making 3d arts for your Pico game some day ;)
