NG Flagging Guide 2

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Edit: Daily 2nd? Lol, thanks ;)

I have written an improved flagging guide, I remember people complaining about visability of text on the previous one, so I made this one a little simpler in terms of looks, so I hope that helps. I have also thrown in a quiz to this one! Kidray also pointed out in his review of my last one that I missed explination of some obvious things, so I hope they are covered here.

I would have edited my last one but I lost the fla, so I spent sometime throwing a new one together, sorry if it seems a little bland. Anyway, there are some tips and everything here for you.

There's also some silly humour, I appologise :(

Leave a review, I respond to all eventually.



Hi There

Once mine was garbage, but thankfully I rated enough rewiews to get it back to normal. Hooray

Homophobia isn't abuse?

I found this tutorial really helpful, but was shocked that it's acceptable on New Grounds to call a flash "gay". What's the deal with that? If it's not cool to submit hateful and bigoted flash, why is it ok to submit hateful or bigoted reviews?

Lots of people find this review helpful!
Little-Rena responds:

I have no idea, it's something I was told by a mod once, it's fine to describe a flash as gay but not the arthor.

I still don't understand flagging

I've flagged portal spam and racist stuff before as "malicious", and I've also flagged comments that were vulgar and racist. And for all that effort, I end up with a garbage whistle. So, basically, while you state the flagging "rules" as such, it seems they're subjective and really based on whim.

Little-Rena responds:

Portal spam doesn't brake the rules in a lot of cases, so flagging spam is just a waste of time, as for racist stuff, it should be flagged as "hateful", a lot of it passes because people don't bother to check.

I can't see why vulgar/racist reviews wouldn't be deleted to be honest, they should be, maybe it's some of the other things you've flagged?

Weak, yet informative... yet wanting.

The overall presentation (grammar, spelling, and looping music) detracted from what was to be an otherwise informative piece. The font was clear and easy to read. Koodos for that. The inapropriate content though I find a little sketchy. isn't that the reason for a "Rating system"? BTW one of the reasons that I love new grounds so much is the "educated freedom of speech" mentality that it appears to adopt. I love that I have one site that I can watch 'animations/play games with my son, and then go to and watch horror, or violence, or explicit sexual content (that some might call porn) or play some truly brutal or erotic games. I am a might bit concerned about the possible censorship aspects of this. Your rating system is the BEST and gets a 5/10. Based on the quality rating system and the Blam system, there is little opportunity for detritus to remain posted for long anyways. If there is a flash that has obvious good craftsmanship, yet offends me, or isn't my cup of tea I either rate it on that, or turn it off as I am obviously not its intended audience. Well keep up the good work.
Feel free to cc me a responce to my ng account, thanks.

The music can be disabled with the "Mute" button at the top.

The rating system doesn't keep the illigal stuff out necisseraly and that's what counts as inappropriate.

Nice Presentation!

Much needed and long overdue. Grammatical errors aside this is a fabulous educational flash. Well presented and an absolute must for all NG noobs. Hopefully it will also have some effect on spam flash authors too, who seem to thrive on the negative reviews. I agree with your NO review is better than a bad review attitude totally. Cheers, and once again outstanding work.
