Well, a 5 seconds gif gets a score around 2.5. Just look here https://jestervgb.newgrounds.com/movies
They upload short gifs because they can't upload the SFM stuff to the art portal.


Slap them things with a 0! If you vote 2 to get a protection point, you cheapen the site by allowing that crap thru. Maybe if some of this stuff got blammed, people might put effort into non-porn stuff. Yeah, I don't think so either, but I still hit every A rated anything with a 0 on principle. I can lose a protection point to keep my character about me. ...or 50. ...or 150...

That's a bad principle.

Actually Exedor, I whole-heartedly disagree with you.


That is literally not what we're about. We want to give each submission a fair assessment. You can't just discriminate against a certain type of submission because it's rated A. I wouldn't mind, some of these NSFW submissions are actually pretty well made. The couple of games I've seen come through are quite good, and even the couple of minute montages of furries or characters fucking, are actually really well made.


This doesn't mean that they should immediately be given a 0 score. You're forgetting, Adult content has seen a MASSIVE spike in the past 10, or even 5 years due to more people having access to the technology required to produce it. Now literally anybody can create a sexy scene with their favourite characters, and that isn't a bad thing.


It's not our job to discriminate. It's our job to give each submission a fair review & to flag anything that is deemed inappropriate. I seriously think you shouldn't start spreading the idea of immediately giving a 0 on a specific type of submission & keep things like that to yourself if you're so hell bent on doing it. Blamming a submission should be based on quality & a number of other factors. Not just because the submission does not fit your personal taste.


This place is not a blam club. Period.

And I wholeheartedly agree with you, Lizzardis.

Exactly, this may not be your way of working but I, as someone who reviews, go to painstaking lengths to make sure my vote is honest. Seriously. It van take me a long-ass time. Because I know for every blam I don't really mean I'm dooming a submission forever. I'm discouraging someone. Now, yes, 2 second loops would probably get a 0 or 1 from me, but giving a 0 to "any A rated anything" is just ridiculous. You can't judge a submission some way because you personally don't like a trend/concept that is completely allowed and has been allowed since Newgrounds was founded. You're not judging a submission by its quality, you're judging it by your personal agenda and that, my comrade-in-arms, is a form of zero-bombing. Yes, I sometimes give Madness tests 0s instead of 0.5s when I'm not sure it deserves a 0.5 because we gotta discourage those, but that's because they're not finished works. I don't go through tests and mass 0-bomb without looking at them.

Yes. I have discovered this place has some... unwritten rules that are to be enforced but not revealed to people.

True. This behavior is not the kind of example the EGB (especially its moderators) should set.

Here we have something interesting. Flash game gameplay. It's electric man 2, a game I've beaten twice I think. Even says so at the end of the video "it's just a game soz"


You can find the game here, I don't think think it's on Newgrounds

I basically agree with both of these happy fappers. There's nothing inherently wrong with an adult submission, and even accounting for subjective taste it'd be hard to justify a fair 0 on many of them.

Same here. My 0 button is relatively rarely used, regardless of rating.

Didn't expect this to blow up, but I was just stating "the state of the portal". In the end, the voting is just a matter of opinion. I do vote lots of 0s because I think there's a lot of trash here.


I wish that there was a rule against movies that is less than 5 seconds, because if you look away for a moment, you've missed the entire thing. Shitty looping doesn't really help.

Yeah, I dispense 0s too when it's necessary. Tons of tests and stuff with 0 effort. The rule would maybe be nice, yeah. It's rarely possible for something under 5 seconds long to justify being in the movie portal.

Here's the artwork source: www.shadbase.com/reaper-likes-black/

Would this be flagged as using gameplay footage from PUBG?
