Hi, I've been on Newgrounds since around 2006 or 2007. I had a couple of accounts until I settled on this one in 2011. I was getting Exp. points every day and leveling up until I just stop visiting this place in 2015/2016. But I finally decide to come back after 4-5 years, hopefully focusing on posting artwork and improving my drawing skills.


My biggest regret on here was probably contributing to the death of a big art collab thread in the Art forum back in 2009 and then making my own art collab (twice) which went terribly unsuccessful. So I hope that I can redeem from that.

Hey I'm Void, formerly YellowisCOOL.


I've been away for about 5 months so I'm back for a bit, though I'm not sure for how long. I just needed a break from this place to be honest. I haven't been gone for too long but it feels like I've been away for a year or so.


I thought I should stop by since my NG 10 year anniversary is coming up soon! I've been using NG since either late 2009 or early 2010, and eventually I made an account as a dumbass 11 year old. (Go look through my old posts/reviews if you want to cringe or have a good laugh!) This isn't actually the first NG account I've created, but it's the one I've stuck with for whatever reason. All of the awesome flash games and movies initially brought me here and I've been here on and off ever since.


So, here's some shit about me! I'm from New Zealand and I've got type 1 Diabetes. I love comic books, graphic novels, zines, and art in general, but I prefer traditional art. I love tv shows such as Euphoria, Sex Education, Stranger Things, Black Mirror and more. I also watch a lot of YouTube. I mainly listen to artists like Tyler The Creator, Suicideboys, Ghostemane and Bones but I'm not a snob. I try to be open minded and my taste in music is constantly expanding. I like Pokรฉmon, Marvel, memes, spending time with my mates, cats, streetwear and skatewear, occasionally playing video games, skulls and bones, energy drinks and sleeping.


I can't think of anything else to say so here's a meme

Avoided the BBS or 'community forums' when I joined, but voted, even when my account was inaccessible for a number of years. Glad this site still has that angsty edge, and supports freedom of expression, even if it's base, vile and unbecoming a proper human being, for it's in that quagmire of discourse, we see humanity.


I dumped at least 2k USD into this site and its artisans, spent many hours typing reviews, holding conversations, being a somewhat informed ear to those in need, a pair of eyes to those who produced content, and otherwise a conspicuously boring human being, albeit well spoken.


I've strayed away to individuals on other platforms like twitch and discord, other games and distractions, but this place has always been 'the better angels of my good nature', sad to say lol. I am very glad to have caught and saved and savored the single voices, crying out in the night


Vault 101 I have many old and deleted Flash submissions, PM me the filename, maybe I got it.

Hey Liam here!


Old user with new account - I'm currently in the midst of my content creation journey!

I've always been doing drawings, paintings, animations anything creative really for years. Even went as far as to get various art related qualifications and a Degree in Animation. Over the years since i ran my own graphic design business. It was all ok, manageable :) but as with everything, life happens, I had to get one of those "real" jobs to support my new young family... After a long hiatus and a tonne of procrastination, i accidentally discovered a new program from Adobe called Character Animator... honestly, that first youtube video got me fast! ideas left right and center - the possibilities!

So i dusted off an old character from my uni days Blue Dood and breathed some new life into him. I'm currently in nearing the end of episode 4 of a mini series set for youtube and subsequent log videos every other week and im gonna do some gaming livestreaming with both a puppet overlay and a 3d model in VR for a lil diversity.

Blue Dood is a multidimensional alien from planet Dood where he is "sort of" employed for a company called "Command" and has a.. "unique" outlook on life.

After accidentally crashing on Earth and then accidentally getting digitized into the internet. Command advises Blue Dood rescue could be years away and is now requested to document the "situation" on the unknown planet in the mean time.


So yeah thats the plan so far. Living inside the Adobe package.

XD


Feel free to ask any questions if you're interested!


Finally,


Hello NEWGROUNDS!!!!!!

I've been lurking the BBS since 2003. I stumbled on NG in the PC lab in 8th grade when taking a CAD design class. The older kids were playing games and videos on NG when the teacher wasn't paying attention so I started playing rooftop skater a bunch.

I found the BBS when I my parents got a PC capable of loading the NG front page over christmas 2002. Over winter break just before I went back to school I created an account and started frequenting the forums every night. Newgrounds has been a part of my daily routine ever since. I've been a review and BBS mod since 2008. I've been chat mod for a while too. I've been a supporter for 5 years. I have a bunch of merch from the old NG store and even a long sleeve logo shirt from the very first cafepress store from way way back. I have missed more than 10 years worth of daily deposits despite being here literally every day for 17 years. I once had 24k+ BBS posts but it's been going down for a while with some large threads and prolific users being deleted from when I was more active. I mostly lurk these days.

I've been to 3 Montreal Meetups, a Mod meetup and 2 Pico Days. I've met some long time NG friends IRL for beer, skiing, overnight visits and on vacations. I first met newgrounders in meatspace when I skipped out from a family vacation in 2004 when I was only 16 and took a grayhound bus 3 hours away to Vancouver BC.

IRL I've graduated highschool and went to college and got married (Tom gave me a shoutout).

Since 2003: I have had 2 bicycles and 2 skateboards. I have driven 9 different cars and 2 motorcycles. I've had 9 cats (5 currently), 1 dog, 1 snake, 3 horses (2 currently) and a handful of chickens and guinea fowl. Lived in 5 apartments, bought 2 houses and lived in 4 different states. I've had 11 different jobs.

I have no artistic abilities. I'm just a fan of the games, toons art and music here. I used to write cringey stuff in highschool but that's thankfully buried with my old livejournal and maybe a few pages of the Late Night Loung in C&C.

found Newgrounds back in 1999 when I was still in the Army, made an account in 2000, after 2004 wasn't active all that much as dial up was a pain in the ass on this site, got more active after 2009 when I had high speed internet a year after moving to Las Vegas from northern California, still pissed a lot of my favorites were taken down after 2003-2004, royally pissed when several flash artist I have followed since 2000 have vanished from here

It's so nice seeing so many familiar names (and the old usernames of people who now have different names). :)


So hi, I'm Jade, former mod of these here BBS. I used to spend an unhealthy amount of time here, now I don't.


I still have the Reader's Digest somewhere where Rig was featured as the cover/main story due to the sirtom incident, I think I sent a copy to a couple of users.


Stuff happened, life kind of took me away from things I used to spend a lot of time on (Neopets, here, other things), and I'm hoping that I can try and find some time to rekindle some of those passions without feeling like I shouldn't be doing them for one reason or another. I'm a mom of 2 and married to @devourerjay for 8 years now. My son's inherited my angry clock face shirt and wears it to school, just waiting to see if anyone at his school starts recognizing it.


I miss you guys a lot, and it's been ABSOLUTELY wonderful to see a bunch of people come out of the woodwork to post here. I have a lot of happy memories of things that happened here (as well as some that didn't go very well).

I came here in about 2012 or so when I was eleven years old. This is my first time logging back into a social media site in a long time, and the internet now feels like a totally different place, man!

You used to be able to say whatever you wanted, no holds barred but now it seems like everybody's getting called out for everything.

I scarcely use the net anymore anyways so I may be super sporadic in terms of my appearance online lol

I did for a hot minute. Or decade.


Suppose I should do I legit reply since Tom noticed ...


Yes, the Among Us video is what brought me back. I have revisited the site from time to time in the past 17 years, and I still love it ... just life has a way of changing ... things.


I used to be a long time lurker, the BBS(forums) moderator, then audio and review got tacked on not much time afterwards. I was heavily active on the site in the early 2000โ€™s. I never dropped a flash movie/game. Made any audio submissions but I did dabble in a little art. I found NG back in 99โ€™, from my brother. It(the site) in its own way made me wary to sign up, but it did have some profound impacts in my world view and sense of twisted humor. I see dome old friends still are active, and am surprised at how much the site has evolved since then. All your base are belong to my blams. Peace. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

guess i should make a post


heya, im recolorme, though i go around the web more often as "recme" now. i made this account almost 10 years ago when i was 10 years old and never really posted anything until now. im now 20 years old and i still never post things except maybe some audio i had laying around


im a musician, but on occasion i animate, draw, and make pixel art. i havent touched flash in years, but maybe flipnotes can be of service here, who knows
