It's been chaotic here on Newgrounds ever since the redesign. Everything has changed here on Newgrounds; the Levels, the Userpages, and the Front Page, among other things. However, has this change been for the beter or the worse?
Levels- The levels on Newgrounds have changed completely; from 30 to 60 levels. This seems to have been done to allow newer users to reach higher levels easier. Here's what other people thought of the new level system.
-I just deposited and apparently I will need about 4k more expirience to get to the next level. That's a lot.- Bazi
It looks like the level gaps are still pretty large. But that's not true. This person doesn't need 4000 more exp.; he needs 4000 exp. period. So that's just a big typo.
-After a while, I stopped waiting for the redesign, and almost didn't want it to happen. I was going to be level 11 on the 27th and didn't want any of this gay shit to happen. I liked the user changing version of the levels, and 60 levels? I mean come on! At least double our xp!! I'll probably get used to it, but for now, I'm fucking pissed.- green-day-fan1
It also seems like some people aren't used to the sudden change in scenery just yet.
-I feel that the level jumps were a big improvement. It allowed people to reach those hard levels much easier and raise their self-esteem.-John12346
But there's no denying the fact that reaching higher levels is easier.
As far is the level system goes, it's just mainly a ploy to help users get away from noobness.
Newgrounds BBS- The new NG BBS has brought people into a large fit of conversation. The new BBS is pretty much the same, except you can use more emoticons.
-I think we would enjoy this historical moment if we keep doing the old jokes and the stuff all people used to do before the new look.-enquencle
-I find it quite sexy, though it feels kinda slow.-Pointy-Circle
There are mainly neutral feelings about this.
The new BBS is basically a carbon-copy of the old BBS, but with a neat shine and spit-polish.
Flash Portal-The Flash Portal is essentially the same thing, except you can now view Flash in the same window in which you used to open it.
-I think the Flash Portal is the same, but I kind of hate that the Flash you click doesn't change color, so now you can't keep track of which Flash you did and didn't watch.-Anonymous(Ok I forgot.)
All in all, there wasn't too much of a change here.
Userpages- A new way to display yourself on Newgrounds. Some people like it. Some people don't. It's like making a profile on the old Newgrounds, but there's more to do.
Newgrounds Itself- All in all, Newgrounds has seemed to make a big improvement and a big 'deprovement' from the original. Here's some commentary from random users about their input on the new Newgrounds.
Doesn't look any different.-GrandfatherClock
Fucking beautiful! Awesome work, Tom!-Snype
Tom, I'm literally orgasming.-KillerCRS
Still no edit button.-Xavon
The slowness of it all...-hollohill
All right. Until next time!
