I don't think you were very clear on what you wanted.

What is "newgrounds"?


so you can download the network so you can veiw whos posting in the forums near your currently veiwed area
How would we know where people are located?


or the network could also tell you who's veiwing movies or submissions near you
What movies are you referring to?

It sounds like you're excited about this idea - I'm just not sure exactly what you're wanting.

sorry about that newgrounds is a flash website found atg www.newgrounds.com Tom Fulp the owner of newgrounds was on Attack Of The Show 2 weeks ago (Attack of the show is a technology show). And to decide the locations I meant the location would be databased from the posters profile. This would kinda work like the flick'r hack works, but I'll soon see if someone makes this.

I don't think you were very clear on what you wanted.

yes, I'm very exicited about this if someone can make it. and I'm refering to the movies, games, and music from the website that users of the website have submitted. Newgrounds is a famous flash video and video game website in the U.S.A. Tom Fulp the owner of Newgrounds is the creator of the video game Alien Hominid which was realesed in the United States and in the U.K.

Ah - now I know what newgrounds is. So I went to the site and it took one look at all the flashing, spinning, glowing, dancing junk. Then I read some of the descriptions and, well, I would be scared to death to click one of those links.

Googling "newgrounds + spyware" confirmed my suspicions. Lots of people claim to have become infected via newgrounds.

Now - since links can be embedded into kmz files, I wonder when the first kmz file that puts spyware on your computer will be released? I'll bet it already has :mad:

I know the ads are terrible that are on the sites they're disgustingly sick, but newgrounds is a good site. I've done some research myself and I have to say newgrounds does not give you spyware, but the ads on newgrounds do. I have programs that search my the websites I use and destroy all spyware and adware, and viruses on them so nobody would be infected and watch out who says bad things againest newgrounds because newgrounds has many competers and many people who are againest the site so I question the people saying that not the site.

Mickey asked: "How would we know where people are located?"

One answer is by using services like geotargetting (http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/website-country/?ip=www.googleearthhacks.com)

That's a cool site. It's correct, too - I'm just outside of Atlanta. However, I think he was wanting it to show the users of that site and where they are when they posted. I guess you could do that with the IP address of the user, but that would require newgrounds to build the script, as they're the only ones with access to the IPs.
