Believe it or not, I think I'm the only person in Honduras that makes flash for newgrounds. I have a degree in Computer Science and I currently work as an iOS App Developer :) I also do flash games on my free time.

Are you fucking kidding me? I loved that game ):

I know buddy it sucks, I loved it as well :( At least they are still widely available on other sites

That's a real shame (and a rage inducer I might add)... did they contact you at all with regards removing the submissions at all, even when they did it? Maybe it is worth seeing if you can message the staff and see if it was just a big misunderstanding or something? In any case, it'll be a shame to see you go if you do, but if it were me, I'd fight to the bitter end! You got a Daily 1st Awards. You deserve to at least to find out the real story behind it all.

I can't really say whether Newgrounds has got better or worse since 2006 (boy that seems a while back...) but I know that it's certainly changed. I shan't voice my opinions here (it's not the place), but I do hope you get stuff sorted and decide to stick around.

Best of luck.

I realized that there is not much I can do :( I'll continue to submit things to NG, it's not their fault, but I'll have to limit myself to the fully original games / animations

Nintendo told Newgrounds to take the content down.
Since you were using copyrighted content.

You really should have contacted somebody rather than making this misinformed rant.

Sorry, my last comment came across as harsh, so I'd just like to mention it DOES suck that Nintendo has decided to attack fan-created content after all this time.

Thanks for the BBS link, it cleared things up a bit. I agree it does suck, dunno why Nintendo is deciding to be such assholes about it up until now.

We received a takedown notice listing over 500 games based on Nintendo properties, so it made it difficult to contact every person individually. In some instances I did contact people to suggest changes that could be made, but in your case the games were identical ports and there wasn't much ground to stand on.

I understand completely, thank you very much for responding Tom. I haven't been around for a while, so I just a while ago learned on the BBS that over 500 submissions were deleted, that made me think of what you just said, it would've been hard to contact every individual author. At the moment, I did realize that it being an identical port, it was prone to something like this, so I should not have been as shocked as I was this morning. Anyways thanks for the response, and sorry for the semi-rant, It caught me by surprise to be honest, but I now see the big picture.

I may be a Nintendo fan, but their legal threat came off as a pernicious overreaction. (Personally, I'm anti-DMCA). Oh, and I also see where you're coming from on things going downhill.
