So I see Tom made a FP post, naturally like many users, I'm going to click it and read it.
About the topic of that post, imo AlmightyHans pretty much summed up my opinion of it.
Everything by everyone can mean different things.
"Everyone can put something here"- or "The Best Of all Types"
This choice would be how Tom wants to do it.
But what prompted me to make this is Tom's reply to one comment about adult games.
"We actually will be filtering out Adult rated submissions from awards in the future, which I know will cause SOME controversy but people will just have to get over it... Adult stuff always finds a crowd so it doesn't need our help to promote it."
well.. not trying to be the controversy, nor insist it be promoted here.
but I will post some.. alternatives? ><
being someone who posts adult stuff into my mix of crap.
Before I begin, I realize what I'm writing won't really matter. So yeah.
But firstly note that I have funny-games ads on my adult crap for sponsors.
If Newgrounds sponsored adult stuff it would have been Newgrounds for sure.
I draw my own crap. And code it.
I actually left from Newgrounds looking for a sponsor elsewhere.
And peeps I can tell you, finding a sponsor for adult flash is not as easy as it seems. Damn near everyone just wants to steal your crap to put on their site. Extreme caution is needed. I'm saying this from experience.
Also I actually joined Newgrounds to work with a team of other NG users on a adult flash. (check my early post history)
Though Tom's reasoning IS understandable, I would like to mention some adult artists do exist on here that make their own crap that isn't a stolen click through art gallery.
More original artists will come if it is more inviting, but as it is, it is not very attractive, and by that reply I read, it is going to be getting worse.
So thank you to all to the hentai peeps who submit stolen art flash galleries and demos and crap. good job. Now when I decide to compete on NG for a daily medal for a adult rated game coded and drawn myself, and collaborated with other NG artists... I wont be able to! :D
And I've been working on some epic shit. Don't judge by my old crap here. I've been working on some pretty good crap for the past year or so. Oh and Nakoruru is my muse and the bestest ever!
Note that I haven't uploaded anything for quite a while. But I have been lurking the flash portal.
And what I think is really "stealing" daily medals is sponsored flash from other sites in general. The rating being adult down to everyone doesn't really matter.
Imo if you have your flash pimped out with Newgrounds links and stuff you should be able to compete in the portal for a trophy. If not then you cant.
alternative suggestions (for what they are worth, which is nothing I am sure T_T;)
Maybe trophies can be applied by rating? Everyone, Teen, etc.
Or maybe by type? like parody, etc.
another might be separate trophies for sponsored games/movies?
and maybe a adult trophy is weekly? something like turd of the week
Hit me with some feedback Newgrounds I want to know what peeps think.
And if you see Tom, tell him to check his e-mail or my PM geezzzzzz... -_-;
