I realized that this blurb never really told a whole lot about myself. I just went on and on about cookies, ice-cream and other bullshit. Kinda lame, right? Anyway, I'd like to give you a little preview about myself: I do enjoy sweets to a large extent.

I've been using Newgrounds for about 9 years now(sign-up date says otherwise), and this design is the biggest surprise I've ever seen. Although people might complain about the looks being "downgraded", I like it; it hits closer to the older designs, where everything is cartoony and retro. I'd like to think of this as Newgrounds' midlife crisis, where it feels like it NEEDS to feel cool again. I'm not complaining, though. Being an older user myself(22, lol), I like this change. It reminds me of my early teen years, which composed of videogames, porn, and Newgrounds.
I love how every piece of every page is being used. In the old layout, the content would be thrown into the middle, and there would be huge chunks of grey thrown at the sides. Now it's replaced with amazing artwork that wouldn't have worked with the old layout. I mainly post on the BBS, so seeing new additions to the forums is awesome. More emotes, auras, and finally having my avatar keep a watchful eye on my posts is beautiful.
Just like real life, Newgrounds is advancing. Gone are the days of basic site browsing and 5'ing/0'ing flashes. Everything is going to improve from here on out. If Tom was serious about this design lasting for 10 years, I'm gonna warm right up to it.
Welcome, 2012 NG! Wipe your feet at the door!
