1) Private User pages
2) Choice of which parts can be made private.
Private user pages hmm? Wonder how that'd work? Seems to defy the purpose of having a user page in the first place a bit. But I agree with #2. Would be great being able to choose which boxes show up there in the first place, not just their order. And of course, the more control the better.

Is there any way that there can be an art gallery option where it's not just thumbnails on display? Sometimes its frustrating what an art piece shows, when I can only see a thumbnail? Even if its an paid/supporter option, that would be cool.
You can click those for the full version though. ;)

Btw, quick question, does the number of votes you've casted show up in your profile anywhere? or just comments/favs? Call me weird, but i'd like to be able to see how many things I've casted votes on, since that's a big theme here on NG.
I remember asking that when I signed up waaay back in the day. XD And requesting it as a feature too. Staff didn't see a meaning with such a feature back then, and since then I pretty much stopped dreaming about such a feature, but maybe this time... we do have voting logs and all these days, it wouldn't be difficult to add a count...
and have it link back to that voting profile if it's clicked?
For this though, I hope that part remains private. Being able to vote anonymously allows you to vote fairly. If people knew what you were voting it seems probable you wouldn't really vote what you feel, but rather what you feel others will feel it's OK that you vote, right? I like the privacy in regard to these specifics.

Thought it would have been dead with Joe Cartoon or is that still around as well?
Joe Cartoon's still around. :) Didn't know about that place before but it's about time! Thanks for that.
I do have a few sugestions. Changing the "Ratings" also resets the "Sort by" and this slightly annoying (by use of search bar only). Next to would be nice to have larger thumbnails for Art but I understand that this at best would require all current thumbnails to be replaced and at worst would break thumbnails for all current Art. Getting thumbnails up to 128x128 would be good. 256x256 would be great but probably best to do at a much later date.
Gotta second that first suggestion. As for thumbnails: the current ones were all manually cropped by the artists, so it'd be a shame to just throw those away, and I do like the compact layout it provides as is, but if alternative views were an option that'd be great! Could have something with full-image previews too.

You are officially in, then! :D Welcome to the grounds!
I really look forward to the writers portal being added. I'm probably going to confine myself to the forum or commenting until that gets put together.
Looking forward to that day too! I guess you've found your way to the Writing Forum already? https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/forum/18

Also what I like to see, haha. Especially when one of the ways to surf includes an option to exclude certain things.
Yeah that'd be useful too. :)
I guess... if you're posting it for others, let them vote. If you're posting it for you, then others don't really need to see it in the portal that's supposed to be for everyone, right? I think that's how it's meant to be, anyway.
Talking about Art here? The 'for the portal' option when you submit art is meant to be used for any work you feel you want to showcase, or anything that's finished, whereas more basic doodles, sketches, works in progress and such things shouldn't be posted there. It's only for finished work.
With the regular portal there's not much choice there, everything you submit appears in that main stream!
I think it'd be cool, if the artist is also on the same site, to send the artist a sort of "collab request" or something, and when they accept it, they're listed as the artist behind the piece.
That's pretty much how it works with all other content forms right now. :) Hopefully art gets the same functionality soon. And of course, some alternative if they don't have an account here, like you suggested.
Also... how about a preview function for forum posts? I wrote this post in a notepad doc so I could reply to more people easily and then realized I don't seem to have a way to preview it, so I won't know if the quotes will show up proper until I post, haha. It doesn't matter much, think of it as a low priority item at best, but it could be neat.
Agree with this too! Lots of good suggestions overall.
