*sigh* Ok, I'll be a bit more descriptive here. The point of my replies was to say that when reporting a submission, please include that you're reporting it. The point of the EGB is not to report things and have them removed by mods, but rather, to have mods and non-mods work together to handle rule-breaking content more quickly and effectively.
If there's a problem, rather than just saying "www.heres.a.link.whatever" and that's it, please be more helpful by saying "This one [breaks rule A, B, C, etc]" and then including the link. This helps out the mods, as it gives us a reason, rather than forcing us to do all the work and research ourselves.
The minimum requirements for posting here should be that when reporting something, you ought to include the link to the offending submission, but also, include a short description as to what's wrong with it. Posting links and/or unhelpful comments not only doesn't help, but it makes more work, and who wants that, y'know?
Oops,sorry about that.It's a video that belongs more on Youtube.
This is not a rule. There are animations on youtube that are here also. That's why I didn't say 'I'll get to that one right away!!' Now, if it was stolen from somewhere, and you included the link to the original, THEN the reply would be, 'GONE!' See the difference there? :)

Basically movie clips/Tests, could have been posted through NG's Dumping ground instead of the movie portal.Nothing wrong with these. Not great animations (especially the duck one, which I hope will blam) but no rules broken. Vote low and move on.
I agree with both of you; they're short, but not rule-breaking. However, the best advice I have about voting is 'don't vote low.' I never vote 1 on anything. If you dislike something enough to vote for blam (0-1), then why give it any chance of passing? Vote 1 and you give it some points, whereas, vote 0 and all your vote power goes toward getting a blam point.

It's a 'hacked' copy of an original game,though I'm not sure if the person who submitted it had the permission to do that.
Even if they did, that doesn't fly around here. Newgrounds is all about submitting your own work, not someone else's. It's one of our core values.
Is that allowed?
Definitely not. It was removed earlier by our fine NG moderation team. :3
Specifically, it was removed because it broke the very first 2 rules in the Submission Guidelines.

May I know what is shovelware?
Certainly. From the rules:
Shovelware is usually a template game, where the author only changes the music, artwork, or other small changes, but then submits it as a new game. Basically, they're shoveling out the same ol' crap, hence, the term "shovelware." A good example are some of the 'escape' games that show up at night. We discuss these at length in the Mod Forums, trying to determine when an author crosses the line from similar game to shovelware submission. Typically, shovelware submitters:
- turn out multiple games per week
- they usually don't respond to our users' reviews or comments, and
- they don't often make notable upgrades to the game design.
Hope that sheds some light on stuff for y'all. :)
Ok, I'll stop now.
