Thank you for the warm welcome!

I remember enjoying content here when in my early teens... and now it feels like welcoming the new rise of an old, nearly forgotten, but never gone power back into my life.

Excited to be here!

Newgrounds was a big part of my online life back in the early 2000s, mostly because of the flash games and movies. Not sure why I stopped visiting as I grew older, but imagine my surprise when I heard y'all were still around!

The warm welcome is very much appreciated.

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.

I think you're overreacting. I don't think SJWs are very into kinky porn or the kind of people have here.

Don't worry, Tom is probably the most honest and kindest creator of a popular website right now. At least it was popular. And it now may be again.

If the artist from Tumblr are coming here then make sure you put a Blog feed and Repost

The Reblog button on Tumblr was the best thing for the artist to have given it gives them the hope someone will see there work and it is seen more and more when more people Repost it.

Also Bring the Ask for there blogs if its story base, I a lot of Tumblr art is half are story base where someone asks them something and the artist make about replying to it

Huh, guess I'm pretty late to the party. But yeah, kinda migrating from the whole tumblr thing. Haven't fallen victim to the whole explicit content blocking since I don't really post that. But I feel a lot of traffic will slow because of the changes and that's not good for what little exposure I already got there.

So hi all. New to actually doing stuff on this site and I'll be posting my stuff progressively if anyone wants to check that out.

I was on newgrounds long ago, circa 2009 or something, but my old account was lost (the mail it was associated with is so old i can't recover it) and the nickname was dumb too.
So... Here i am again.
This site looks really friendly and nice, many of my pals have come here as well.

Some say "go to twitter", but i don't trust that site, i feel like they'll pull this same tumblr shit one day or another.

Honestly, it pains me to see so many artists switching to Twitter only. It's good for the interactions, sure, but it's a pain to search for art in there, not to mention that images are compressed to hell and back unless you add at least one transparent pixel.

But yeah, it's shit to browse art there. I mean, it's not twitter's fault, it was never made with artists in mind in the first place.

Flash is still fine tool for making animations, just not for plsying them on web.

Animate in flash, and export as a video file instead of .flv

Newgrounds released a tool if there are any other flash animators that want their swf converted to video. If anyone else uses some of the older flash verions to animate like Macromedia 8 I highly recommend it.

The older textured layout is eventually gonna go away completely. We've tried to keep the new desktop pages pretty similar in terms of layout, though.

But Tooom, the old one was so much cooler, with all the metallic stuff! I don't wanna lose the badass Madness grunt at the bottom forever either! Could you please just make it an option for the old layout to be used? Maybe on Pico Day you could switch it back to that layout as a little treat?

I second this. While change is welcome, please don't fall prey to this "flat" craze that a whole bunch of logos and sites have been doing.

But adult stuff is hidden by default. Content ratings.

There seems to be a lot of SFW stuff too... not a lot compared to the other category but still, more than before...

Speaking of that: what we really need here is a good introduction thing. This place is big. Some quick instructions when you sign up, or when you visit certain areas for the first time would be nice. A bit of an interactive guide that you don't really have to read though. All the info's in the Wiki but it is a lot to read up on.

If the trickster doesn't know something feel free to ask me too btw. We're always happy to help.

Yeah it doesn't matter so much what program you use as the final format you use, though they did change the name on the newer versions. I know I'll be using Flash way past 2020 though. :)

Literally just joined a few hours ago. I just can't stand tumblr if this is the way they're going with the site. And even if they did flagged my art, then so be it. I won't even reverse the claim and just delete every blog I made there.

Welp, now that rant is over. Now'st he time for me to say, hello everyone! Hope you have a wonderful day! :D

Enjoy the cute Pokemon art I made a long time ago.

The feed page (the non pop-over version) is still stuck with the old layout, but once it's overhauled like the rest then notifications should appear instantly. Maybe not in the feed but at least with a little alert that you have new feed items. It works like that on all the newer pages currently.

In relation to NSFW content or SFW. Certain fetishes, certain ships (I know that sounds dumb, but we've been through hell after tumblr so bear w me), certain topics, etc?

Mutilation comes to mind. :) Well there doesn't seem to be anything strictly not allowed, but extreme fetishes may not catch as big an audience, or catch some unwanted critique (never mind those though). If you want to avoid the latter it's always good to be specific with the titles if you're posting something some people really won't want to see. Like: Title [INSERT WEIRD FETISH NAME HERE]

Overall though, if not mentioned in the rules: anything goes!

Scouted artists can see unscouted art too, and there's usually always a few people monitoring that section; keeping an eye out for talent they might have the honor of recruiting. If you're making good art just sit back and wait for the invites to stream in. :) Though it seems you've been initiated already!

Here's some more info on the scouting process though for anyone who read this/wants to know: https://ornery.newgrounds.com/news/post/388624

If they give you permission, that should be alright. Commissions were another area that wasn't as common here before this migration, but generally I'd think you still need to either post original work, or have permission to post the other artist's work if it's not entirely original.

There's probably a lot of work here based off other people's designs though, the ones that come to mind are ones for contests with Draw With Jazza, and those are certainly OK. If the original image allows for derivative transformations that should be alright too. Hope that answers your wonders?

Basically: very similar as to the rules with commissions.

There's also the writing forum. It's not perfect, but that and newsposts are the options we have right now... and of course, collabing with others, writing scripts and such. :) Always fun to get into if you have a chance.

Sketch or newspost. :) Work without all original content (if it's the kind of content you didn't have permission to use) might get taken down if they're submitted as art though. Memes are great but since they usually include some photos the user might not have rights to use than it makes for trouble there.

No, not that I am aware of. There is however a "Always appear offline" option... Any thread you make will end up on the front page of the Community section.

Just have to note: making a thread won't really push it to the front page of the community section, the content you see there is geared towards you specifically so you'll usually see threads you've made or posted in, or in lack of those: the more popular ones in general. Definitely good to stay away from forums or news posts if you really want to keep a low profile though, though why you'd want to do that...

That would be pretty useful! Some comics probably still won't fit well as just one submission, but divided by chapter, or season, or just grouped whenever relevant... would be pretty helpful. Could be a good way to include alternations of the same image on the same page too some times.

Does this include something visible in the title bar/tab, or just a sort of flash (and a number in the "notifications") as it was with this forum reply of yours?

While on the subject of forums, how about having the information currently only visible at the top (thread name, reply to topic, forum index link) visible at the bottom as well?

Also, I noticed that the forum jumplist(?) doesn't show the currently viewed forum - Would it be possible to add it in there (possibly with some sort of indicator to tell you that "you are here"), so that you can see what category the current forum belongs to without having to switch to a different forum?

Just joined looking for alternatives to tumblr, this community seems pretty nice! The ability to upload games is what I'm probably gonna look into here - need to learn my way around though haha. I learnt about newgrounds through twitter, so if my blog gets taken down (tumblr is flagging perfectly innocent sfw posts left and right #GreatWebDesign, but I'm not deleting my tumblr yet) I'll most likely be spending most of my time on twitter and here. Such a shame that they're doing this though, so many artists are gonna lose commissions :(

It's not vague actually. Not sure why people have troubles with it.

Only thing that allowed is "artful" erotic which is vague. With all this "female presenting nipples" I imagine most drawings are not gonna be considered as art.
