Hey y'all. I think some of the people Newgrounds automatically chooses to participate in the Monthly Voting for Best Games and Movies for <insert month here> aren't qualified for it, because I'm one of them.

I was under the impression those who partake more in the community, like voting on submissions or interacting with users, were given the P-bot message inviting them to partake in Monthly voting; but recently, even after I've regrettably slacked off on this site, I've been invited every month since a long time. Out of the 100+ games and movies I see as nominees every month, I'd have played none of the games and watched a couple of the movies already posted on Youtube. My votes would have gone to popular videos or those made by Newgrounds vets.

If this system hasn't changed where almost any Newgrounder can vote on Monthly now, a more selective, qualified roaster of judges should be scouted and picked, those who care about Newgrounds and its flashes as passionately as users like me did, and those who partake in community discussion and collaboration. I know there're users like that, and they deserve this opportunity more than I do.

There was this sprite animation I watched back in the day that was one of my all time fondest memories on this site. But no matter how I use the Newgrounds search engine or enter specific keywords on Google search, it just seems like it never existed. So either it was deleted or fallen into serious obscurity.

Either way, this is all I know about the flash animation in question. If anyone can miraclously remember it and point it out somehow, I'd be really grateful:

It was a music video where a man and woman sing on stage, singing "Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better)". It'd then cut to them doing what the lyrics of the songs say. It won Daily First.

I just need to sort some stuff out is all. If I find myself unable to persue it in the upcoming months, I'll ask for someone else to take over.

It feels awesome that we were able to continue Newgrounds' longest running collab to this day, and it's such a thrill to work with and meet so many neat artists every year. This one was a ton of fun, and hopefully we can see more new faces for next year's installment.

So thanks for second place daily, and keep on animating!

So, uh, question. I'm looking for a new laptop to animate on. You guys know any good brands that make custom-made, graphics-heavy, somewhat affordable laptops, and what specs do you think are enough to load Adobe programs like Photoshop and Flash well?

Just like every year, your objective is to create a short animation showing what it would look like if the doodles on your page started moving. It should look like it was done with pencil.

1. No porn or sexual content.
2. Obey the specs given below.
3a. You can use your own sounds, but music will be included, so don't make sound vital.
3b. If sound is included, don't make it too loud or too quiet.
4. No sprites.
5. Sticks are allowed, but not encouraged.
6. Must be frame by frame - some tweening can be done, but keep it to a minimum.
7. Don't make rubbish or half-assed parts, do your best.
8. Stay active in the thread, post every few weeks or so.
9. Please tell us if you're dropping out, don't just disappear.
10. If you do not obey the specs and you make a part, you must create a new one no questions asked.
11. Use as fewer layers as you possibly can.
12. You must include a signature at the bottom right of your part.

Stage: Standard, 854x480 or 1280x720
Background: White
Format: CS3 to CS6 .fla, .flv
FPS: 24
Time: 5-20 seconds
Deadline: September 1st
