@PsychoGoldfish just rolled out forum post reactions, which you'll find at the bottom of each post along with the reply link, which used to be at the top of each post! We still have some forum nav improvements coming but focus is shifting to the Art Portal for a bit.


The art thumbnailer for animated gifs broke with the forum update. If you have a broken thumbnail, look for the thumbnail editor tool in the lower left of your view page; this will let you manually upload a replacement.


This issue also breaks the social card images for animated art. We'd like those to be fixed before we start showing full art in feeds, since it will be using the resized card images. Expect the new art upload form and full art in feeds to arrive next.

If you click the trophies section down the left side of your user page, it will go here:

We still plan to show a progress badge for monthly supporters, too; they would see a grey version of the annual badge and each month it will fill a little more with color.

also since the yearly supporter badges are on topic, I should mention that I dont have the 2018 badge or the 2019 badge, its just a grayed out badge. Maybe because it was gifted to me or somethin

Yeah grey is the Honorary Badge, which should look more fancy... Or just get replaced by a yearly badge when awarded.

hmm, that's odd. i have never seen that before. maybe it's a glitch or something.

Response to Best of December 2018! 2019-01-07 16:21:29


Out of all damn great movies you could have picked, you picked one that's literally just a 7 second loop and one that's a ''vlog'' animation with NOTHING impressive in it, not only that, but it's only 20 seconds long and contains nothing more than basic lip sync and animation! This whole damn ''contest'' is rigged! Rigged in the sense that a movie that has TITTIES wins!

Shame on you, Tom! Sure, it had original content, but there were other WAY more impressive and interesting movies that had original content as well.

We need to make H-Bot, the Hacker Bot who charges crazy prizes to hack in missed supporter badges. The further back, the more costly the hack.

Gonna take some getting used to the Reply thing not being in the place I've always been used to it being... but cool to see these continual improvements going on. Reactions... still dubious about their being just about everywhere but can't say I don't appreciate getting them. :)


Congrats to the winners!


And thanks for that spiffy new badge!

Any thoughts on making that one some kind of silverish hue instead? A little honorary shimmer, sparkly; exclusively non-flat color combination...?

I saw you sad reacted to me hypothetically calling you a farty mouth, Tom. For that I apologize; your mouth is far from farty.

250$ for a 20 second animation, cool.

Response to Best of December 2018! 2019-01-07 19:01:59


As a couple others have angrily shown their distaste, I can't say I'm too impressed or surprised with the top 5 movie results. The Maxine clips are nice, but underwhelming in the grand scope of a whole month's worth of submissions, and of course the hot video game collab hosted by Newgrounds itself will make its way to the top spot, haha.

That being said, I do understand that these are voted on by users who may show some biases just as anything else may tend to be scored on the site.

Regardless of that, here's to a new year of stellar and wacky creations, all crammed into our little hidey hole of the internet! :)

That's not at all what he said. He was expressing the frustration that there were animations this month that he felt put in more work that the 2 short ones that won. Strawmaning his point is just condescending.

I think that's a common consensus at this point. :) They weren't bad but... just remarkably simple in premise compared to most of the contenders. And both of them, too. Visually appealing more than steaming with meaning.


Still do hope he keeps submitting though! They're fun to watch.

Response to Best of December 2018! 2019-01-08 09:02:53


Well congrats to the winners of Dec 2018. Well I'm not surpised to admit, that those submissions created by Turbobalak, would get to the Top 5 Movies Selection of last month. But NG has been a private website and always had NSFW submissions for a long time now. It always has the weird users here (I'm somewhat of a weird user too) Now the 2019 year supporter badge is here. I plan on buying it for next week, because I have to buy other stuff for my new semester and get ready to work or study on my subjects. I like the colors of the badge from what JohnnyUtah chose by the way. I do have some mixed feelings about having the reacts in the forum posts now. I have a lot of work to do with this (I think I already typed about this). Also I don't think the reply button should be at the bottom of the post... Well I hope that 2019 can bring us something special along the way.


Moving on and looking forward...
