Sorry for the short notice but we're offering Double XP today, meaning you can vote on at least ten items and log 20 XP instead of the usual ten.
UPDATE: From Tuesday, November 19th through Sunday, November 24th, we're having Double XP every day! We're getting a lot of stuff uploaded to the Portal as a result of YouTube being a mess this week.
Also please consider becoming a Supporter so we can kick off 2020 in style!
We've been getting heavy traffic and the Under Judgment list is filled up; it would be much appreciated if you helped vote entries through.
Notice to artists uploading video under the "Movies" portal - NG is intended for finished animation pieces. The Movies section isn't intended to be used for demos, live action video, Let's Plays, etc.
Also, please do not upload anything with music you don't have rights to. YouTube for example pays over $1 billion to the recording industry EVERY YEAR. Newgrounds can't do that so we ask that you check out these royalty-free resources. You'll be better off in the long-term, vs having long-term rights issues with your work.
As we approach 2020, lots of people are talking about how Flash is going away and some are assuming sites like Newgrounds will go away with it. Here are some reminders of things you can tell people:
- Most of the content people come to Newgrounds for nowadays isn't Flash. It's video content via an HTML5 player, HTML5 games, audio via an HTML5 player and art, which never required Flash.
- We've converted a lot of the classic animation to MP4, which can be viewed without Flash and also on mobile.
- We introduced NG Player, a desktop player that can launch via NG and run Flash content when your browser won't, You should see a link to it when you're on a page that contains Flash content.
- There is a lot of progress being made with in-browser Flash emulation and you'll be seeing a big demonstration of that soon here on NG! Expect most animation to be covered really soon.
The more people you tell, the better off NG will be in 2020! We have lots of cool stuff in the works so expect things around here to only get better. Of course, your support would be greatly appreciated! For $3 a month or $25 for the year, you can browse NG ad-free and get a bunch of perks. Your support helps us keep over 20 years of content on-line while continuing to create a more ideal home to creators for years to come.
Be sure to check out our Best of October! The winners of our Halloween Spooktacular are up next - sorry for the delay, this month has been a bit bonkers. Big updates to the Project System and Collabinator are still looming.
