Does this game work for any of you? All I see is a blue screen after it loads.

The game doesn't work for me, it's just a blue screen.

This is about the fourth or fifth version of this game that I've seen in the Portal in the last week. Now if you're not going to ban this type of shit altogether, there has to be a limit to how many times someone can upload a demo in a short amount of time - what can you possibly improve on that sort of update cycle?

Ok. How many are present at the moment?

Now if you're not going to ban this type of shit altogether,

That's not your department.

there has to be a limit to how many times someone can upload a demo in a short amount of time

There is: 2 per day limit.

- what can you possibly improve on that sort of update cycle?

I dunno. Vote 0 and move on.


Are you reporting something legitimate, or just bitching and moaning? you're ....kinda good at sorta one of those things. Sorta. Maybe.

At some point it goes beyond "legitimate" demo improvements and is spam. You're right I don't like these things at all, and back in the good old days they simply weren't allowed, but a lot of them do actually take some time between iterations and seem to actually make some improvements, which is kind of fair enough. The frequency of this guy cannot possibly be doing that.


I guess I should just make a ten second Madness movie (as they also seem to be almost immune to being blammed), have it do little apart from shoot a gun and plug my website, and then just add another couple of frames or a different bit of background every day, call it Hot Furry Anal v0.186946 WIP and profit. It's the 2019 Newgrounds way I guess.


As an aside, has anyone seen ANY of these things actually get completed?

You think any submission that goes through more than one or two stages is spam, so I see no truth in your statement here. Your flags always say otherwise. I'm sorry, but it is the truth.

There's the moaning that Exedor mentioned. Exaggerated moaning, too.


This is ONE user that you're freaking out about and the previous versions of their current game were removed several days ago. We do our best to keep several versions of a game still in progress to a limit of two. Does it always happen right away? No, because us Portal mods have our own lives. You flipping out doesn't help anyone. We WILL get around to it.


If it gets to the point where a user is submitting versions everyday or extremely frequently with little to no improvements, we will obviously take serious action beyond just removing the submissions. But complaining every time that a game has three demo versions instead of two isn't going to do anything. Especially if the latest demo just got uploaded five minutes ago and none of us Portal mods have had time to take action because we have lives outside of Newgrounds.


Be patient. If you have legitimate concerns, report them appropriately, not angrily.

You're both missing the point. I can just about live with the current amount of demos that someone can have if it's never going to be reverted to the glory days of Newgrounds. Most of them do at least wait a while and will have made some changes, many of them even having a changelog to say what they've done. What I do have an issue is seeing the same game coming up multiple times a week, even if the previous versions have been deleted, because they're adding next to nothing each time (as they don't have enough time between submissions to possibly do so), and are only doing so in order for their submissions to keep showing up in the latest games/movies tabs multiple times a week, begging for some naive user to visit their Patreon in the hope that they'll get someone to send them money to develop the game (which, 99% of the time, will never be finished).


It's just like emails - if a company's sending me something every week or so, that's fine. If it's to the point where I'm noticing them more than I'm noticing legitimate mail, it becomes spam and gets dealt with as such. At least in my email account it does, anyway.


I see no point in replying further here, nobody is going to do anything about a problem if they don't even perceive it to be one

You're acting like there are a hundred users per week doing this or something. There has only been two users in the past week who have submitted several versions of their current game, which all got removed except for the most recent ones. After that, I can't even remember the last time a user did that.


And yes, I know you have a problem with that whole Patreon thing, but do you really think ALL of those people are attracting any serious revenue or attention by putting a link in the description of their submission? A lot of them don't make anything. As for some names on Newgrounds that have hundreds of followers here, their Patreons have hundreds of followers as well and are actually updating and working on their game. You can easily see that by visiting their Patreon.

YEY, ROOSTER TIME!


Let's pretend I made this post 11 days ago. I've been swamped at work. Don't judge me.


May was a busy month for me. Spring took its sweet time showing up, and when it did, it flooded my region out pretty severely. Once the waters receded, we were met with an onslaught of mosquitoes.


Ick. Mosquitoes are the worst. Luckily, I don't have to worry much about them being over the pond, but whenever I do venture out of my country, it's like the mosquitoes can just sense it & pummel me as soon as I step foot on warmer territory.


I hope everyone has a great June. Get out there and enjoy nature! ...or just hand out on Newgrounds, whichever.


Well if @TomFulp would just give us an iOS / Andorid app for NG, we could do both! You know, be outside AND post on NG. But he's too busy running a website or something.

Well you're a name I've not seen in a long time. Shame it's under such duress.

I have an issue with your whole "I can just about live" shpeal that you've just sprouted. Now, first & foremost, I'm a massive advocate for NG, I grew up here, so it's my home away from home. However, I do have to point out, that you're taking this whole site, and more importantly the Portal, a little too serious, don't you think?


If it's to the point where I'm noticing them more than I'm noticing legitimate mail, it becomes spam and gets dealt with as such. At least in my email account it does, anyway.


So therefore, you have 1 of 2 options here.


1) You vote 0 if you don't like the demo or disagree with the fact that it should have a place on the portal (Optionally: You can also flag the submission as Spam, but that would only be a detriment to your whistle if the actual rules disagree with what you consider to be spam) - In this instance, this is you "dealing" with the spam & actually doing something about it. Of course, this is literally all that you can do. Ever get those spam messages that just don't seem to go into your spam folder, or you block 1 and another appears? Yeah, this is like that. Just chill out, delete the email, and move on. Just chill out, vote 0 if you didn't like the flash & move on.


2) Don't do anything & spend a few minutes of your day bitching and moaning about how the system is broken because it doesn't fit your views or ideas of what is or isn't spam, and then spend a few more minutes of your day arguing / disagreeing to the actual reasons why you may or may not be wrong, and refusing to listen to anybody but the small whiny voice in your head.


Let's see which one is more productive.


I see no point in replying further here, nobody is going to do anything about a problem if they don't even perceive it to be one


Ahh, so you went for option 2 then. Good for you. At least you made a decision, and hey, god loves a trier.


You've literally been on this site for 19 years. You should know how this works by now. Some things make it through the portal that you didn't like, and that's fine. The portal is a place where people can store their work so people can enjoy it. So what if it's a demo or 3? People clearly voted on the work & enjoyed it.


Besides some of the NSFW animators / creators actually do make a really good living off of providing their NSFW to NG & other sources. In fact, I think one of them who regularly uploads beta versions of his NSFW game earns roughly $20,000 A MONTH for making his games...


It really makes me think I chose the wrong path in life.
