I never intended to come back to newgrounds after leaving in 2017, but with COPPA changing how Youtube operates as well as how dangerously vague the FTC rules on cartoons are as well as the chance that this will not be changed due to bureaucratically incompetence of both the FTC as well as youtube...here I am because theres no where else to go really.
Seems like everywhere is crapping out on artists and animators or other smaller content creators in favor of studio content. Its a shame to see this bullshit coming to fruition but there isn't anything any that can be done and it looks like a lot of this will be the new standard, which could be permanent.
Its not too hard top see which way the winds are blowing on the internet because Google is at the top of the web, and when they change something so does the bulk of the rest of the internet. I guess I'm still used to the internet being a source of expressive freedom Oh well, I'm back at newgrounds. tail tucked between my legs and all
