Possible Fault in Newgrounds Monthly Voting

Posted by TheMAM - May 3rd, 2020


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.

Basically the userbase is probably so thin, even if you vote on one submission a month you're probably qualified because they need people. I barely vote and they still send me one. Ah yes the "Qualified roster of judges" as it has always been lmaoo

Everyone gets invited to participate in monthly voting. There is no fault here.

Stuff need people, and they are trust to you, so why not?
Maybe you will voite for good thurbnai.

Ive been picked ten times, and im certain its only after i remember to vote on a piece of content.
