This will probably be my final post on Newgrounds. Today I found out about something which, frankly, really pissed me off.
I found out that both Donkey Kong Arcade remakes that I made were deleted by the NG Moderation team. This felt like a backstabbing for me as I was not expecting that my games, made over 2 years ago, were deleted so quickly and without giving me a warning or at least an opportunity to salvage them by changing the artwork (I assume they were deleted because I used the original sprites and whatnot). Why now? Both games were reviewed by mods when being submitted since they were using medals, why didn't they say anything then?
I'm really sad to see this happen as they were of great success here on NG and for all the hard work I put to create them. I understand WHY the games were removed, what I don't agree with is the way it was done. I think it was unfair for me, and very dictator-like from the staff. If you agree or not, let me know, I'd like to hear the opinion of other users on this matter.
What also pisses me off is the fact that there are other classic game remakes, which are still around, yet I am the one who gets his submissions deleted -___- I really don't understand. I was considering PM-ing the staff, but I don't know if it would help, what do you guys think?
I know I have not submitted anything for a while, and this site still holds a place in my heart, but I will not continue to submit content on a place where I cannot even defend myself, let alone be given the opportunity to make things right. So consider "Jetpac" my final submission to Newgrounds until further notice. Newgrounds has changed from the place it once was. Some might say for the better, but I feel as for the worse. It used to be much better back in 2006 imho.
You can still find the games online, Here is DK Arcade 1 and you can play DK Arcade Returns 2 here
It was a great time the past 7 years on NG, but this is the final draw. I still thank all of my fans who supported me throughout the years and enjoyed my movies or games. It was really fun, up until this final month of course.
Anyways thanks for everything guys, please leave a comment on your opinion on the situation, or what you think I can do.
I'll still remember the Daily 1st award I got on both submissions, they'll never take that from me :)
After realizing that 500+ submissions were deleted as consequence of a DMCA recieved by Newgrounds, I understand the reasons why I wasn't contacted. I probably WILL continue to submit anything I make to NG, but I'll only submit my original games / animations. Please understand that what I do, I do for fun. It just so happens that I enjoy porting old retro games to flash, I can't help it. But, like I said, anything I feel is original enough to be submitted to NG, I will most surely do so.
