Two site updates since my last post: The Classic Portal got updated to the new layout and now works a lot better on mobile. We also added ratings filters to give better control over what content you find!


Search has been updated to exclude users on your block list. This is a continuation of the content filter updates we started in May, which will continue to expand into more areas of the site.


We have a big update coming to the project system and one of the new features is the ability to credit what hardware and software you use to create stuff. Animation, games and audio can currently update this info post-publishing by clicking the pencil icon in the “Edit Equipment” field, directly under tags on your public view page. Animators - it would be great if you could fill in what animation software and drawing tablet you use! For tablets, please include your model details and not just the brand - if it’s not in our database, I’ll add it.


Artists - the Art Portal results are funky today but will be fixed soon. Read more here!

Sweet Stuff, glad we got the top ranked game of the month.


I think listing hardware could be neat but also be demotivating if you look up their listed model and it's a 1,000USD and people grow up with that stigma

i am very happy with my 20th place on games höhö < : )

Congrats to the featured movies, games, art and audio! I wish the best for all of you!


Also thank you so much Tom for putting my song optic fiber in your august playlist, you have no idea how happy and honoured I am for that, for being noticed, so super mega thank you!!


Every decision you've ever made up until now (no matter how small) has potentially saved your life by keeping you from being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Congrats to all of the winners this month! The entries, as usual, really blew me away, but I got so hyped up I made a little highlight reel for all the games: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bvCkCVxS-o Hopefully it can give all the devs a little extra 'run around the bases' feeling to cap out this month!

Oooh, I'm digging that artwork in the classic portal now.

Response to Best of August 2019 2019-09-11 10:22:13


Classic Portal looking pretty spiffy! Ratings super useful too. Though I'd love to see the UJ box on top when you view it in mobile. Layout boxes in order of importance and all.


Congrats to the winners! Great stuff all over.

Congrats to the winners! ^_^ I was pulling for Spoople Knows, but it got 40th. I suppose it is because it was submitted so late in the month. Check it out if you passed over it, guys. Very cool.


The best month of Newgrounds is almost here. October on Newgrounds is always a treat, but we do have some tricksters about these days so stay tuned.

Response to Best of August 2019 2019-09-12 16:55:02 (edited 2019-09-12 17:00:29)


Well I'm glad that my favorite games are on the top 5 for August 2019. The new update to the classic portal is alright to me, my only fuss about it, it's that the links are not highlighted anymore, after voting on the submission, also the submission should have a badge close to the title, like a star or 'V' for vote or victory (as a joke) so anyone can know that they already voted on the submission.

Another fuss for mobile version, I have to scroll down to vote on the submission from now on, I hope that you can set up the categories for mobile someday. I would love to change the judgement submission up for easy voting (when I have a busy day).

Man the month was okay for me, but a total mess for me. Also some people need to take responsibilty to browse NG outside of their homes and to their family members unaware of the website, there was a reason on why the website is set to private. :/
