Mysterious transformation

2007-12-29 21:16:25 by silent-warfare

Being on Newgrounds, you always get amazed at what people are uploading, seemingly thinking that it would give them the 15 seconds in the limelight that they aspire to. Needless to say a lot of the stuff should never make it past the initial voting process, but does so anyway, as the majority of people voting apply rather loose standards of what constitutes quality content.

Unlike the "plz vote 5", "fifen this!", "this rulezzz!!!1 lolr" etc. submissions, there seem to be some posters out there who have some critical faculty left when it comes to assessing the quality of their own submissions. Apart from those who upload things and then urge viewers to blam it straight away, while secretly hoping that it might get past the critical viewership anyway, there are those using a different technique to express the sudden revelation as to the quality of their material once it has been uploaded. Today, a poster had this to say about what had happened during the submission process:

"short flash about a guy fighting a wall. when i uploaded it, it got really choppy... so that sucks."
('Guy vs. Wall' by flashnooberson, date submitted 12/29/2007, 07:51PM EST)

What is going to be next? You could easily imagine the above quote replacing 'choppy' with 'crappy', and authors of less than stellar flashes would all of a sudden have found a new great excuse for filling Newgrounds with sub-par animations. Go, blame it on the portal.
