What was up with "le kooky random edgelord" NewGrounds animators like Egoraptor and Oney? It's like everyone in the mid 2000s pretended to have the same manufactured persona and made animations as if they had ADHD. You know what I mean? The whole "don't fuck with me I'm crazy" schtick.

      You can also blame corporations and everything being "ad friendly"
      Most sites use AI based algorithms to monitor shit for them instead of janitors or mods like some niche forums

      100% accurate post. The bar has also been raised a lot vs back in the day. It used to be that anyone with a cracked version of Flash and some basic art skills could put something together and land the front page with enough effort (or lack thereof), now up and comers are both working within a stricter e-zeitgeist and competing with decades of experience wherein the standards are simply a lot higher, which in turn filters out a lot of the younger spazzy types.

      Kudos to the mods though, the featured section isn't a cool kids club by any means. When I say "standards" I don't mean everything is another Tarboy, I mean you don't see many "Bowja From His Cashle"s anymore

      Egorepture used to be treated like Newgrounds royalty and everyone seems to like him. Max G is the "hated" animator on that site. I know some people will hate on Egoraptor but the general consensus is that he is well-liked, both by the general public that is aware of his existence and the animation community.

      People liked Egoraptor, people don't like Arin. That's pretty much the entire gist of it.

        The animation scene is more competitive, yes, but there also fewer people in it because the real secret is that Youtube controls the market and considers all forms of "entertainment" equal. Animators have to be good enough to beat out the ad quantity of Markiplier, and even then they usually won't get the same ad promotion.

        I remember when "Doubpe King" came out, Youtube gave it less promo than a video titled "slapping myself for 10 hours" because the second video was posted by a daily vlogger. The slapping was of course just looped.

    That's because what people call nowadays "edgy" was appreciated for being anti-cultural, at the times.
    Basically it was something that was the opposite of mainstream media, which was controlled and very wary of making something controversial. Also it was just a landmine for young artists to just fuck around and having fun without thinking too much at how the internet would react at things.

    Of course nowadays you look at that and you say that, because we're basically going in a spinning direction were making safe but not overtly colored (in all meanings) stuff is better than making anti-cultural stuff.

        SA is a funny example because you had people harass autists and make videos about them, and then a few years later they went from mask-off harassment to moral-high-ground harassment. Which not only meant they were justified in pushing people to suicide, but their fans would go "uh they've changed and grown up, sweetie, sorry they were able to move on unlike you" when you called out their past behavior, and they would keep circling the wagons waiting for more years to pass and hope the heat would die down as a result

      I don't know man. I feel like edginess and true freedom of expression (in principle cause I know some gay will pretend I am talking about laws and not the principle, so fucking annoying when they pretend to not understand the difference and then argue against a strawman that doesn't even exist) is dead. The whole advertising system is based on being as inoffensive as possible to certain groups and maintaining one group's "reality" over the others. Everyone uses the same sites and whenever another one pops up. It just gets crushed by google and the other big players. The best we could hope for is something that is super underground and done as a passion project.

      Maybe if someone else makes a parallel payment system and advertisement system it could be something. But then you will just have all the app stores refuse to let, "free speech" type apps on the store because they don't censor "hate speech". All the talented people will just make stuff on mainstream sites and cater their creativity to be workable with the existing echo system. Unless you are a super edgy person who cannot exist on the mainstream, you will just adapt to the existing platform. If you want views or a career you have to play by their game. Newgrounds is still good for some newbie animators because you can build your fanbase there before moving onwards towards the big boys. Like youtube and tic talk and stuff. Youtube videos will get maybe 50 views if you have no subscribers and that's being generous but if you have no fanbase you can easily get a few hundred views on Newgrounds

      We would have to create several complex systems to be independent of censorship and fight against the powers that be and they will absolutely crush any new system that tries to crop up. I don't see anything changing anytime soon. I would like to be wrong but the cards are just stacked against us. Just look at dissenter or minds or any youtube competitors they are all jokes and are actively being suppressed

      People here are too young to realize how influential FLCL was on internet animation and what a ridiculously standout series it was when it first started airing in the West, that was largely still getting leftovers from the 80s and early 90s Japan. The entire early Newgrounds style would not exist with FLCL at all, some of the most influential shorts like Dad's at Work even used specific musical cues from the OST. (Yes I'm aware the music is a classical score, no shit, that specific snippet with that exact time frame was on the FLCL soundtrack)

      FLCL is to internet animation was Azumanga Daioh was to internet memes: Early 2000s anime that had a tremendous impact on the culture at large whose influence is now largely if not entirely forgotten by the larger public. "waifu" itself originates from Azumanga Daioh and the loose ADHD action animation was so clearly inspired by Imaishi's contributions to FLCL that it hurts. But most people using the internet nowadays either never saw those series or the respective media moved so far away from the sources that at this point it's much harder to recognize the influence.

    Literally everything on Newgrounds back then was better than anything coming from the internet these days. That is, except for Newgrounds which is doing amazing right now and drawing all the good artists away from Twitter and Instagram and every other shit site. The whiners on here hating on it will look like morons when they miss the new Newgrounds wave again.

    Basically everyone agrees that the only thing from the mid-00s internet that aged well was HSR.

    That was just the youth culture at the time. Before we millennials became pussified fags, we were edgelords, influenced by the humor and culture of the generation before us: Generation X. Gen X was the generation that gave us punk, heavy metal, violent video games, and shock radio. It was the in-your-face edgy generation, and they influenced early millennial culture. Back in the Y2K period that edgy sort of humor that can be found in South Park or any 90s comedy was loved by us millenials, so of course we tried to mimic it in our online forums and spaces. Go watch any early episode of South Park and then watch any 2000s/early 2010s NG flash, you can see similar humor

      As someone that was there, had my fun and left, I can say Newgrounds is probably the last for that old internet feel. Though I do say it's not the same Newgrounds as it was in the past. It's changed up a lot, and now a lot softer. I understand people's past grievances with the site and even some now having problems with how the site change (Hence some people calling it garden gnomegrounds). For artist just starting, I'll recommend newgrounds just because it has a good format on it's website and is good at showing all your artwork off compared to other sites.

        The administration also cares about the little guy, which is far more than you can say about anywhere else. Does Tom still give out tablets for Christmas?

          Yah Tom still gives out tablets regulary. I don't remember anything for Christmas though, but I know he's super generous in terms of giving out a lot of tablets to people that need them.
          >The administration also cares about the little guy, which is far more than you can say about anywhere else
          This. Despite leaving, I can say I got more confident and grew more as an artist due to the site's support and love.

        As a new artist, how do you get anywhere on the site? Heck, my chances on Newgrounds and twitter were way more interactive than on deviantart.

          You don't. Anything you post is going to be buried under tens of thousands of low effort ms paint fetish edits. It's no surprise that any featured art you see was made by somebody who's been on the site for a minimum 15 years and have already had a following from back then. If you try to start there now you'll get nowhere.
