I watch the sun leaving me...and the shadow of this warrior falls back into the mountains. I touch the ground which caresses him...and weep for a man who believed in the goodness of others...who wanted nothing more than freedom...

Wi/Ht? Commonly Asked Questions

Posted by reverend - July 29th, 2010

How do I create flash/games on NG?
First you will need a program called flash. You can get a 30 day trial here. It is a little pricey, but there are some educational discounts if you are in school or college. If you still don't want to pay, there are some cheap alternatives listed in this thread, but they might not be good as the original and might not include Actionscipt, which is needed for games.

After you have your program, you can check out the tutorials listed here along with reading though AS:Main and AS3:Main, or ask questions about animating in the Animation Forum or technical questions in the Flash Forum.

How do I put medals in my game?
First know that your game must be one of quality, before it is approved by the Staff and that even with the API code that they have the final say in approving your points. In order to get medals in your game, go to this link and fill out the information. If you need further details you can check out this flash.

I can't see medals on the game page.
If you can't see the medals on a game that you know you have medals, try first to disable any ad-blocking add-ons like No-script or Adblock Plus. If you still can't see medals, check that you don't have a third party programs like a firewall or ad-ware programs that might also block ads. In some cases, games that have medals,will not display them and is this a site known site bug.

How do I get over the Flash size limit?
You will need to upload your .swf to your dump and provide a link to TomFulp. He will decide whether to temporarily increase your file size limit or not. It is best that you try to optimize your flash by either reducing the quality of the images if you have jpeg or gif files and to reduce the quality of the audio as well.

How long does it take to get my Audio Approved?
It can take anywhere from several day to several weeks before a new user can get there audio approved. There are so many new users uploading there audio and only so few Audio Moderators who have to vet them which creates a backlog. You will just have to be patient and wait.

However if you have waited for several weeks and still have not been approved or rejected, you can either post in this thread or contact an Audio Mod directly to see what is going on.

I can't upload picture due to transparency error.
If you get this error you will have to remove any transparency you have before you can upload your image. If you have the following programs this is how you can remove it:

* If you are using Photoshop, use the "save for web feature" in the file menu, choose gif and uncheck transparency.
* If you are using GIMP, right-click the layer and click "remove alpha channel" before saving.
* If you are using Fireworks then select "No Transparency" under Optimize.

Alternatively you can use MSPaint by saving the .gif as a jpeg and then reopening the .jpeg to save it as a .gif once again.

How do I delete my profile?
There is no current way for a user to delete their profile. If you wish to not use it anymore you can always change the email and passwords to gibberish and never log in again.

How do I change my username?
There is no way for a user to change their username. If you don't like your username so much you can always create a new profile and use that instead. In very rare cases, an administrator will change a username, but the user has to have significant contributions to the Newgrounds community before that is to happen.

'hi there rev

What of? I already have him on my spreadsheet for Art Reviews if that's what you mean.

Great FAQ, Rev! They're really, really frequent :P

And congratulations on the icon modship!

Great idea, Man!
I was actually gonna do something like this a long time ago, but never got the enough motivation and inspiration.

I'm thinking in creating a High Quality Tutorial about the Wi/ht? threads, lists and about the forum itself in flash. I'm gonna put a link to this little FAQ if I ever make it.

You can't delete your profile but you can force the admins to delete it.

True, but in most cases it's better for them to just leave their profile rather than bugging an Admin. Who knows, they might want to come back some day like I did.

Yeah, the only case I remember is Sevenstar.

I was thinking in more of the line of deletion request. Some do happen like in Sanjay's case, but it's really the exception to the rule. I'm sure spam-bots and people who are serious rule beakers are removed often.

Your helpfulness is overwhelming :D

Your beard is overwhelmingly awesome, good sir!

Congrats on the gold aura man! Though if things continue like this the LUL will be slathered in an eyeraping amount of gold :P

I think we increased the value of the LUL with all the gold we have there. Few more peeps and it'll be like Ft. Knox!

Thanks Rohan!

Oh man. Just the other day I said to Bahamut: "Now the LUL has more gold than anything else" and here you are with a shiny golden aura. Congrats man! It's very nice to see the all those LULers get modded in the past few months. :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! :D

I did not see coming BBS modship to you :P

Congrats, man. Viva la revolution!

You and me both TPM.

iViva la revolution!

congrats on moderatoration, weren't you a forum moderator back around 2008? Or is this your first time as forum moderator?

You're thinking of Revenant. And no I wasn't a BBS mod before.

lol well you both share somewhat similer usernames.

And Revenant is female. :P

Thanks for the clear up do you think i can have my name changed i mean i contacted luis and he said hed do it but that was 4 days ago he still hasnt done it :(

That's all on you. I don't have very much direct contact with the staff myself. Just gotta be patient.

How do I ask a question.

Where do babies come from?

You see those Schwans trucks driving around your neighborhood? They also deliver babies.

Tool header, you're cool

Your ban message made me laugh.

I bet you can't wait until you're Supreme Commander.

You bet!
