What could MURDER this site? 2021-09-08 11:40:14


It's a horrible thought, but what do you think could be added to this site or outside of this site which would completely kill it?


d-yeah...

Good animation question! Theoretically I can see people posting even more low quality work doing that or posting gameplay footage or live action stuff to the movie portal swamping out people's animation work. If there was another portal for things like that it might work out ok but considering how long changes that fix things take it's most likely not gonna be for a while.

Nothing kills it, except shitty submission takeovers

I’d say if Tom continued updating the recommendation system, it would start to collect information from minors and invite COPPA over.


If Tom sold out to a big company.


If Tom gets greedy for money and starts putting pay walls everywhere.


If he got rid of the forums and all kinds of user interaction features.


If all art, animation, audio, and game engine programs all become an expensive subscription service.



I guess maybe an abundance of toxic TikTok/Twitter people invading the portal and the forums or a corporate force against Tom's will.


my vids go here.

lets take a look at the past 2 site overloads from this year and 10 years ago


first it was the homestucks, one of the biggest (yet retarded) fanbase ive ever been in. the homestuck crash happened due to one of their new flashes is having a premiere in this site. not only it has crashed newgrounds, it also crashed their now defunct homeland, aka the mspa forums


second crash? yall already knew it, cameron's up to blame eh? not sure tho


in conclusion :

a large fandom could crash newgrounds if something official related to them is posted to the site, might wanna be careful next time when you have a huge ass rabid fandom

Maybe when Tom decides to make the app for people to have access to Newgrounds on their phones easier, Apple added allot of restrictions for nudity and adult content, they would be asking Tom to remove all of it or censor it for the sake of having an app, or if big credit card companies punching Tom's gut just like how they did recently with Onlyfans. It's indeed a horrifying act to think of.

Its already downhill again. It went up thanks to the tumblr exodus but now its back down thanks to the little pog champs coming in for FNF. Little bit of twitter and reddit coming in as well.


Whys this a problem? Newgrounds used to be free of expression but when kids start showing up, shit gets locked down.


The newgrounds podcast already got rid of its NSFW cause the mods cucked out.

Despite porn being 2 clicks away, we still like to act like kids are holy little objects that have never seen a tiddy before.

This right here, this site isn't supposed to pander to pretentious little shits that wants to be catered all the time, it's shit like this is what is killing not only this site, but the internet as a whole

I think if everyone delted all their stuff and would post horribly racist stuff until everyone is blocked that would kill ng pretty quickly

Us not being here.

This is what I could come up with, I don't really know the full history of Newgounds so I kinda am just shooting at the barrel:


-Big Company Buyout

-Massive Censorship

-Low Quality Takeover

-Bot takeover

-Larger push towards more quantity for financial gain, like Youtube

General disinterest for the site (like people will just grow uninterested towards Newgrounds and the site will just wind up null)

-Massive and Heavy push towards Political Correctness (like not being able to even say stupid because some dumbass with a fox tail buttplug and no father was called that once in highschool and now won't get out the closet with his massive pile of empty soy milk cartons)

-A sudden change/removal of a feature that then screws up a subset of peeps here

-Massive Gatekeeping or no real moderation of the community itself to fix things up

-Banning mature content/NSFW (Specifically porn, theoretically you can milk coomers enough to buy out the US Government, even if you're shit at it)


Generally what I'm thinking is some company pays Tom or whoever's running the site with a new life in some tropical resort and pull a Susan Horseface Wojiskkhjujwhatever along with a bunch of sensitards and shift the site to an industry that lies/manipulate their creators and audience for money and kill off those who don't make them dough and bump them up stuff that do, or the community just not caring and letting it devolve into something that would make a piece of shit more appealing along with degens running the show (you know, like a lot of other communities), and also banning porn or letting that be the whole entirety of the site (or that would just bump it up to the mainstream or some shit). Thanks for coming to my Late Night talk show and if you got anything else to add or wanna throw a bunch of slurs at me go ahead (please I need to expand my list).

The main appeal of Newgrounds is that it easily accessible and focuses on art and games. So if NG implemented a subscription service to post/ access certain features and focused on live action that would definitely drive away most people. Also if Tom banned NSFW to appeal to ads we'd have tumblr exodus 2.0.
