Apart from that, perfect.
And btw those were two really boring days, lol.
They were boring werent they. When I first saw the redesign, I believed the site was slower... Wrong. There were so many users on....

Usually it was someone in somewhat high-regards who would animate a short animation and it would be featured on the main page. The original links are dead right now, but it appears it's back to it's original capacity. Fun stuff!

Woah. For the whole day (from the UK :[ ) I waited, and here it is, finally. Admittedly, it's not exactly quick to load, but who cares??? It's not a website, it's artwork! Congratulations Tom, Wade, Johnny, Stamper, and everyone else who made this!!!!
I can just imagine all the useless topics exactly like this...
Actually, the old "colon space" trick probably won't work anymore, will it?

I should go through the whole site and give detailed thoughts on every aspect of the new design, but i got too excited and had to post now!
The new look is amazing, really really amazing.
The user pages are fantastic too. I feared a MySpace rip-off, but I think it's a great feature that works well with the site. Going to go play about with mine in a minute!
Love how voting on Flashes stays on the same page. Also like the way Flashes open in the same page (how is that done???), although often while a Flash was loading I'd open the Flash portal link in a new tab and start finding the next submission to look at, which wont be possible any more. I'll just have to get in the habit of keeping the Portal open in a separate tab.
I was hoping you'd have dropped the 'most recent review' feature.. instead there's now two! This is a bit better as if the most recent one was crap at least the one before might be alright, more a balanced opinion. But still, I'd have prefered just a review summary on the submission page (e.g the last 5 review headlines and the average score).
I am having one MAJOR problem, dont know if I'm alone on it (cause i'm not wasting time reading through everyone elses posts when there's new stuff to check out). I'm stuck on 'Checking Login Status'.. can't access my account at all. Needs fixing pretty urgently unless i'm alone on it.
But in all, it's great. Newgrounds went from 2002 to 2007 in a day (ok I know you've been working on this far longer than a day, but you get my point). Congrats to everyone involved.

Now that I got a chance to check out the new design!!
Like the use of HTML and the CSS very clean and you kept the Popup player (THANKYOU) of course I figured you'd be launching embedded content .. maybe that will be a level up thing.. only people with level 10 or higher can embed content on another site.
Anyways Great job everyone!

Well, this scores a B- from me.
Not brilliant, hell, it's not even that much better than the original design. But I guess it's kind of improved. BUT NO ANIMATED SIGS!? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS!?

i love the attitude the redesign brought, in my opinion, this is the best feature with the whole redesign. It also gives alot of headroom for future cool implements, more easter eggs etc.
Lovley stuff, I say, the NG staff should have lots of beer for this! After the bugs have been fixd ;)
