I'm thankful to the way NG seems to have opened their arms to us, especially the sassy Twitter posts on the matter!
Looking forwards to sharing my nsfw contributions here! (Once I wrap my head around scouting...).

I'd really like to see and option to combine your art into separate folders or categories because my mix of traditional inkwork, digital NSFW art and digital innocent sci-fi/fantasy stuff makes my gallery look annoyingly eclectic and inconsistent.
Also, an option to upload multiple images in one entry for comics and pieces with alt versions.

I made an account here nearly four years ago, but don't let that fool you. I haven't touched this account since until yesterday. Since Tumblr is going the way it is I think I should actually use my Newgrounds account and see what I can do with it. Hopefully, this is a good idea.

Been lurking in and out of here since back when Stamper was active. Made a new account since it's been too long . I heard about the resurgence from some friends who migrated here from tumblr. Thanks for all your hard work NG and welcome people both new and old. Also, hi Chapman Bros.

I'm really worried about how well people will respond to this with NG's servers being so bogged down by it right now.
They're gonna think it doesn't have the steam to handle so much traffic, which...I hope is not the case. lol
Every other time I try to get on here I'm getting "504 Bad Gateway" errors, I assume due to the traffic & everything.
Gotta say, tumblr dropping the ball is making this a really exciting time. :b

With the influx of new artists, NG may have a reason to refine how the Art Portal works with features like that.
I hope that sort of thing, plus maybe the option of displaying artwork differently like, with a title or smaller icons, more per page, etc, start getting considered... but at least there's the rating sorting options to use for now. Nobody has to see the M & A stuff unless they want.

Hello!! I have had a newgrounds account before, but never really used it too much. I'll be moving some of my art over here too!
If im allowed to ask questions here, Im curious about the scouting system. If I post art here, how are people going to see it if it isnt in the Art portal? Is getting scouted an easy process, or is it more exclusive to super experienced artists?
Also, what is the best way to gain an audience here?

Sorry if this was asked already, ive already seen a few new members are kind of thrown off by the system!

Yeah I'm curious about the scouting system too. How does this work?
If no one sees my art how does it eventually get scouted by someone? lol

I've had an account here for a while but never used it, not even to favorite things, I think... Now I'm posting art here and such and I, like others, are curious about the scout stuff.

I've already had someone do it but I have no idea what it means or anything. lmao

Thank you for being an open space for us artists <3

I'd enjoy some features that'd really improve an experience from someone who commissions art:

1. An option to upload art that has been commissioned by the user with full crediting to the original artist, so the site can still effectively be used as an image gallery to quickly link to without disparaging content creators with art theft or lack of attributing.

2. A better, well versed commissioning section of the art portal. Dedicated pricing, customer rating systems, authentication, etc. No 'Pay in Exposure'. This will ensure that artists can post commission rates and commissioners can easily find artists to pay.

3. More tags per picture. Four is just simply not enough.

4. A moderated Collaboration portal. A lot of the ads seem illicit at times, but that may just be me.


Hentai is what I like, so im like one of the many hentai judgers on NG, so if i dont like it, you get a bad review, que paso?

Yaaay, Newgrounds strikes back. I wish it was under different circumstances, but it's still beneficial.

Hearing about the huge migration to here reminded me of my old home that was this place. Glad to see how things seem to be picking up again, hoping for many more years of glory to this site.

I feel like a child again with all this love and making NG servers collapsing from all the new content. Glad to welcome all of you creators as I have always admired artists a lot since I can´t even draw a stick figure straight. In what I can I would try to comment and give reviews in the art section and in general all the others sections again since in the past I have been kind of distant from normally commenting since I thought my opinion was kind of boring but I think now at least it can be kind of better( I hope). So yeah glad too see so many happy souls and hoping that NG can be a new home to you all.
Apart from this a thing I have been thinking is that with so many new artists,we need as many had said new tag systems and all but another cool thing could be a subsection in each section where there is content from all the new users in a way it doesn´t feel oversatured, like for example putting just one piece of art/music/etc or maybe even just the names so that other users can check them out, I have been thinking this because with the new wave of art it is possible to miss someone with so many images.

Thank you guys for being so nice! I already hit the 10 upload limit and I'm just holding tabs open to start again tomorrow XD

It really is so super nostalgic being here again! A lot has changed, but the good parts have stayed the same it seems. NG might just be my favorite new place ^^
