This is more of a note rather than a post; but I feel like I should express somewhere how I feel about the whole "redesigning" of Newgrounds...
Well I'm sure people who have been around Newgrounds for a while, will appreciate that the people (who work behind the scenes to keep this website up and running) took the time to revamp the site, and even add a few things in...the results of which are enough to please most people. It certainly has me pleased to some extent. Although I think I should mention, there are miniscule, erm "things" that are worth looking into which can leave at least some somewhat unamused.
First of all, I'm still super-confused by how everything works...particularly the ranking/voting system...does it actually work? I get no indications that it does. And I find myself missing a couple of things...like banners and stuff over the certain series and collections; also I'm missing (in every sense of the word) my user icons, that have disappeared I'm guessing as a result of the revamp of the site. Also I'm not too impressed with the new "aura" system..surely people can be good at two or more things such as being an artist and a gamer, and so in the end I just have to be content being a "Blank Slate". Then while I kind of like the new design of the profile page...some things just don't work for me or I can't figure how they do, like where does it actually display my occupation and things like that, which can be a bit frustrating...oh and one thing I find particularly annoying now is that in the medals section it also now shows all the medals you don't have...which can be really, I dunno, make you develop low self esteem? XD
OH OH, something I almost forgot. THE COMMENTARY SYSTEM...yes IT IS something to make emphasis about :P If no one's noticed, you CAN'T make caption remarks anymore (which I often enjoyed, it was like adding a title to your review, RIP [Return If Possible] that) but now more importantly...IT'S NOW VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE for people to be "hater-voters" (I think) thanks to the NEW rating system concerning commentaries (it's also now impossible to rate your own comments, well it's probably been impossible since forever but now you can't click anything, LOL). Well, struggling artists who found themselves bombarded with vengeful shit with no brain-power behind them whatsoever will breathe a sigh of relief which has been long overdue. BUT that also means that there WILL NO LONGER be the strong hater crowd that had once made Newgrounds a very famous/infamous entertainment and artist site - it will also cease to exist. For some reason I have this strange feeling I'm going to miss those illiterate fuckers to some extent, and I also feel to some extent that Tom and co. are slowly introducing is almost identical to some kind of censorship system...even if it is positive. I don't know if people have taken the time to look around, but I don't see an UN-constructive comment ANYWHERE...and I've now looked extensively...makes my reviews where I said things like "some idiots don't know how to think or be nice" kinda stupid. I don't know, as a critic, I find it often an indication how good, or bad or misjudged a piece of work is by how many negative useless comments are made against it...Oh well, then again, I'm probably wrong...AGAIN...in my assessments...correct me if I'm wrong...anyways
Maybe I just don't know how to look where how things work (even though there's a wiki to refer to now, I find myself with more questions then answers), and maybe I'm just overreacting and being a retard about all of this. OR I'm really jumping the boat when I still can't tell whether we're crashing into an iceberg of lameness...ok, what I'm trying to say is that perhaps I'm complaining whilst updates are still underway and maybe I should shut up and just wait...who knows? Maybe I should write on the forums, or even to Tom and co. about my complaints and suggestions if I have any, but I'm not very confident in that...I'm pretty sure I'm going to get no response, and they'll be at least a few artists and animators out there who will agree with me. Hey maybe that's something they can improve...response service! And in terms of the forums, I made an absolute joke of myself some years ago so I'm pretty sure no one will take me seriously.
But don't get me wrong while it sounds that I'm listing more cons than pros about the whole revamp of the site, I'm still all for it. I'm just hoping it doesn't turn out to be a disaster.
In other news, people should know I only really use this profile to critic things, not really for submissions...well maybe I wouldn't have to say this if I could figure out how to display my occupation and my contact details so I don't have to be told I'm "nobody"...too late for that.
Oh and this is my first post, even though I've been here for years...ha. Well anyone who follows me can now expect me to post whenever I find something important or...worth posting about? Oh and the only things I will actually submit from now on will just be images to do with my profile page...or other things...IDK..yet :3
Well that's it for now, cheers to a nonexistent crowd. -.- I'm off to draw a profile pic, etc.
