Waiting for a truly great game to use ads with will allow users to be forgiving, and potentially more lucrative.'

I don't see how using ads in games now would reduce the revenue from ads in later games. Seems like spurious reasoning to me.

I didn't mean don't use them now, I'm just saying, don't put them in lackluster games...

If some advertisers are paying per view, and every bad movie/game under the sun has the ad system, I'm pretty sure down the line it will shaft the rates.

Basically, while the possibility of making money is there, I still think ads should be used responsibly. If you realistically only stand to make 5$ or something, or if you know the game isn't anything spectacular, I think it'd be better to just give the viewers the benefit of no ads at all.

It really depends on the popularity of the game. If its featured on Newgrounds and isn't too popular, you won't be making a huge amount of money; if its featured on a game site, more people will come there looking for specifically games.

However, if your game is popular and hosted by NG, if will probably end up being spread(AKA stolen) to tons of other game websites, you'll be a lot better off. If you're not sure how popular it is, might as well take your chances either way.

Getting To Know Eachother

I think that we should get to know eachother. So everyone should post a bit of information about them. I'll be the first.

Real Name: Keith
Age: 17, close to 18 :)
Short Bio: I fool around with flash. I haven't released anything worth looking at. This year I'll have some stuff in and they will be good. I'm sure all those weeks of practicing stuff and learning new things will help :). Other then animating, I play the guitar, I like going out, I love watching Tim Burton movies. Also I enjoy long walks on the beach, holding hands and midnight dinners ;).
My favourite animators are Luis and Dustball. My favourite actionscripters are NegativeOne and Jmtb02.

Knowing each other

Real name: Allen
Me: I'm 19 and currently work while out of school, and have decided to pick things up in terms of work habits by doing something every day, being it animating or just practicing drawing. I plan to actually do some productive stuff this year. I spend a lot of time on the tennis courts in the warmer months, and enjoy my fair share of video gaming.

Also, if you challenge me in Guitar Hero, you will lose. I'm an arrogant ass when it comes to that game.

Sup wit Senti

Real Name: Ben
Age: 19, going to be 20 this year (scares the shit out of me)
Stuffs: I'm a Freshman at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. Coincidentally that is an art school so I suppose that makes me fairly decent at art. I love all forms of art but I'm most interested in drawing, design, animation, and photography. Little known fact, I have nothing on Newgrounds besides the art done for Kitten Cannon. The game was made entirely in one week and I don't know why people play it. I have said multiple times I will have something to call my own on NG in the future, but I cannot say when and it probably won't be soon. Besides computer things I am really into DJing and dancing. Both of which I do frequently. I like going to concerts an getting a little mental. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. YOU NOW KNOW TOO MUCH.

I ended up getting tickets to see Hot Chip, turns out Spank Rock was there. He's pretty chill. I'm on the right.

Flash Ads

Actually, I'd quite like to know how these are. The main reason I stayed away from Mochi Ads is because they look ugly as hell. If NG ads look nice enough to integrate properly, you could do a pretty good job by sticking them in places like the intro, preloader, credits, menu - places where they wouldn't conflict with the gameplay.

Getting To Know Each other

Real Name: Will
Age: 16
Short Bio: I live in Surrey, south of London. Ambition is to do programming as a profession, however unsure of exactly what at the moment. Last year of school, off to college next year studying maths, computing, physics and I'm currently unsure of my 4th yet. Probably going to be something totally different. I can't remember how I heard of NG really. I believe I was just browsing for games and came across this site. About a year later I signed up and was probably the biggest noob on NG. My favorite actionscripters are Jmtb02, Gust and of course Delta.

That'll do.

Getting To Know One Another

Real Name: Lochie.
Age: 16 this year.
Bio: I live in Melbourne, Australia.. My friend introduced me to newgrounds, he only went on for the games, and after a year or two, I realised people could sign up, so I decided to do so.

My original username was Ultra-Ninja1, because I didn't know what the fuck do choose from, and for some reason liked ninjas.. that was before I learnt how to use flash, the same friend brought flash and introduced me to it, I really liked how you could animate and make games, I learnt to code before I learnt proper animation aswell.

I changed my alias to Lacstar (Lock-Star), because everybody around me used to call me that, as a nick-name, I got tired of this name pretty fast and moved on to Night-Mare, this is for the reason of my friends and I starting a skateboarding team and naming it Nite-Mare, my other friend game up with the name, he has dyslexia, so he couldn't spell, and we just wanted to make him happy, so we kept the name, the team split up pretty fast and we don't talk much anymore.

Well, after I got used to script circles going across the screen, I moved to more advanced scripts like, platformers. After a while I decided to stop scripting for a while and animate instead, I animate more frequently now. Right now I have the skills to make full games and animations, just I don't get motivated enough unless I get encouraged by friends or good critism. I usually like to collaborate though, it is more of a way to get yourself in the mood to animate or code and also get your project finished faster.

TL; dr: I live in Australia and like to animate, actionscript and collaborate.
