Redesign

7/17/07 by Vengeance

Well the newgrounds redesign is here. What can I say, it's good and all but honestly; I think it's a let down. I like all the new features and it seems like it could be easier to navigate. But it just doesn't have the same feel the old newgrounds has. It hasn't got that oldskool, developed in a basement feel. It's too professional I think. No offence Tom and everyone who worked on it, it looks great. The features are great, Liljim has done an extraordinary job with the ajax for the flash portal and everything. It's just lost its old feel.
Anyone agree? Think I'm an idiot? Go for it, I'd love to see you're opinions.

I understand how you feel. Didn't everyone react differently to the changes of Newgrounds though? Everytime Newgrounds upgraded every so and so years, everyone turned their heads and somehow it lost it's own "old feel" to it every upgrade. Even though, they never had dramatic changes, this site was whipped up from scratch and totally redone. Funny thing is that, I really enjoy the new look -- minus the bugs. But it'll be fixed soon.

I still love the old NG, even though the New Newgrounds will take time getting used too. No matter the look, no matter how it feels, Newgrounds will always be Newgrounds. With the same people, the same fans, and the same friends. And that's one thing, that'll never change.

i like the redesign in general, but i know what you mean, and there are some things that really need changing, mainly, the vertical spacing exhibited throughout, everything is too big and spaced out, especcialy when browsing the forums.


I can definitely understand your point but I still think that it's a lot better - it has a cartoon feel to it which is really awesome and unique. I think the whole site is 10X better than it was before but I can understand your view - you will get used to NEWgrounds.

I understand what you mean, although I personally love this new look now.

I like the new look, don't get me wrong, it's great! I just find that it's a little too professional. Not the same old newgrounds. It'll take some getting used to.


I agree, there is so much change. I feel that the spirit of ng has been lost but ill give it time and the new layout will probly grow on all of us


I agree with you completley.
It dosent feel like the "old" newgrounds, but thats because it isn't.
In time, people will get used to the "new" newgrounds, like they did with the header.
