Just had a thought, do you plan to remove the tumblr link from the "NG is Down" page in the future?

Being a veteran here for almost 20 years, I kinda worry about "Tumblr" migrating here.

These people do not integrate well.

It will be an SJW shit fest before the week is over and I honestly believe this will change newgrounds for the absolute worst.

They are going to see shit and SREEEECH to all hell and back.

I'm happy the site will be getting some revenue, I do like to see newgrounds go on, but not like this.

Talk about the hypocrisy. Silly Tumblr.

Neato.
But, on a positive note, welcome to Newgrounds, Tumblr pilgrims!

All are welcome to NewGrounds. Those that arrive, survive. :)

Tumblr has pretty much jumped the shark at this point.

Well, I'm glad that Newgrounds is still alive and kicking. I'm happy to be part of this beautiful site. Content creation for life, baby!

NewGrounds never went anywhere. It has always been here to submit content and enjoy. It also has a Living Legend, unlike Tumblr.

Maybe... We also need to add Instagram. The NG Instagram has been going really well.

They're kicking out the Porn artists, Tumblrina's are still there and celebrating the fact that their precious site will be cleansed of the "filth".

Oooohh man... I guess now I'm here with the whole second wave, like, a real refugee. It happened. Heck. Tumblr politics is just... wonderful.
Okay, now getting familiar with this place even further and looking forward to any changes.

Although what tumblr is doing is in poor decision for them, it makes me super happy to see Newgrounds seeing more traffic and more great artists!

I hope the happiness to have us here is true, this place is still as intimidating as it was when I made my account back in the day. :P (After one journal post I left it to gather dust until today.)

An old veteran who's returned to support the site and its community. Maybe create stuff, still on the fence on that. It's good to be back home.

Regards to Tumblr. I'm not happy that it happened and affected the artists but hopefully the cancer that it is will die, leading to an improvement internet.

Be careful of generalizing people. Tumblr folk like porn too, mostly. What they're specifically happy about are the porn bots and more obviously abusive users(such as people trading literal, actual child pornography). For the most part, the air is sombre and scary even for those who don't do porn(such as me).

As much as I agree with banning the child porn content, They didn't had to go as far to ban every single adult content on Tumblr.

a lot of us who are coming over aren't porn-exclusive artists, just. for the record. all of my neopets and pokemon art (which is 100% SFW) was flagged because one of the terms being purged is 'furry' and both technically qualify, even though there isn't even a nipple to be seen on any of it. :/

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but this might be a good time to start beefing up some of the art tools here to account for the influx of content coming. A lot of Tumblr stuff is comics pages, and it might be nice to develop support for multiple-piece submissions, rather than submitting each page as its own submission. I like the way Instagram allows multiple images to be posted together, and I think this would be a cool feature to support here as well.

The last thing I expected to wake up to today was all of tumblr migrating to NG of all places. I guess since deviantart doesn't allow hardcore porn it makes sense? Is there really nowhere else more popular than NG?

There's Furaffinity. But, well. It's not really a classy joint, for various reasons. A circus can be a very welcoming place, but not often one that carries dignity with it. Newgrounds, comparatively, is a bit more like a punk rock show.

In any case. While tumblr users come here, I would like to offer that both sides should avoid throwing generalizations and pre-judicial commentary around about the cultures of various websites.

too many kids on DA. insta has an art theft problem. twitter is targeted for *chan raids a lot (tho it's also getting a massive amount of traffic). NG meanwhile stepped up to welcome us.

Deviant Art has weird ass rules when it comes to genitalia in art.

Interesting to hear that Tom Fulp had a NEO GEO fanzine which would later become this site... I happen to own a NEO GEO MVS PCB myself, along with a couple games, including Metal Slug X and Neo Turf Masters.

My twitter...

Hello hello. I had a bit of a question that I don't think the Art Guidelines completely cover. I'm not any kind of illustrator, but rather a collaborator on artworks, in that I like to color others work. In 99% of cases, this is with explicit permission of the artist, and often times for lineart / sketches that i have personally commissioned. But when I cant figure out the artist source (and trust me, i try scouring hard at times), I have done work and credited the base artist as unknown.

So, the question i have is that is that acceptable for me to post as art here? Obviously on any such post I would credit and link back to where the artist can be found, on Newgrounds first if they are here, and otherwise another place they can be found. My old home was tumblr, but obviously that's over.

I mostly do NSFW stuff since i find that the most fun, and the latest example of that can be found on my twitter, but older SFW samples are on my personal tumblr here. Mostly linking these to show that i'm talking about putting in some serious effort, on designing background, adding rendering depth, and at times even blowing up pictures to add detail and variants. Not just paintbucketing lines and slapping a signature on it.

Regardless, thank you for the consideration, and giving all the fine artists who's work i've appreciated over the years a place to keep sharing their work, uninhibited by the baggage of modern social media.
