Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 172 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

As a new user, I found it very hard to understand the whistle system, and what constituted an abusive review. I made this guide with newbies like that in mind.

However, many NG users find themselves with a Garbage whistle, and cannot get out of it. This guide will help you to understand the subtle difference between a useless review and an abusive one.

I hope that you find this useful, and hopefully it will help you on the road to a Deity whistle.

Feel free to leave helpful reviews, I promise to respond to every one of them, unless ironically they are abusive.

EDIT: THE SEQUEL IS OUT, AND IT'S BETTER THAN EVER!!!

Good guide, albeit outdated now that Rage's thread has been locked for abuse. This would really be the only thing I'd change. The graphics are negligible. It all serves its purpose.

Thanks, I aim to become a good part of the community and ty to you i hopefully will!

Helpful lad

I'm certaintly not a new member, infact I'm what you might call a Newgrounds Veteran. Been around here since 2005 with nothing but a garbage whistle to show. Flagged plenty of submissions for breaching mutilple submits when repeatedly getting rejected. And time and time again they keep coming back and to make things worse, I get negative points.

Sorry for the low score but this is in terms of animation and entertainment, thanks for the info.

It is pretty minimalist, but this was the first thing I ever made in Flash, not much of an excuse I know but whatever. As for getting your whistle status up, it's a bit easier to see results quickly with flagging reviews, as a flagged flash may take a long time to be dealt with by an administrator. Thanks for the review.

Thank's for the work.

There's nothing else to critique about because this is a guide, but 10 for a noce guide. Thanks.
And if I can ask you to do something, I would like everyone to rate this review useless.

RohantheBarbarian responds:

Thanks for reviewing (dunno why you want a useless rating)

Interesting but here what I...

Here what I would add. The "Wah why was I review banned" thread for historical purposes, Mal's review answers threads and the review rules in lieu of the NGFAQ.

Something to note that in the B**m section, I think how did this pass judgement should be there and that sort of thing. Well ARG 2 might have it.

I can see lots of improvements in the previous flash I reviewed, Cool.

RohantheBarbarian responds:

Sadly I've lost the FLV file so short of remaking it from scratch I can't add anything. Thanks for the review.
