It appears that today marks 15 years of being a member of this amazing community.
Newgrounds had a huge impact on me during my formative teenage years and provided me with many wonderful experiences and skills, and allowed me to meet many amazing people. It has provided a launch pad for many amazing careers and was one of the first places on the Internet where artists, programmers, animators- anyone- could truly make their mark online, expressing themselves creatively, and freely.
I'll always remember my early days on Newgrounds, and I'll certainly never forget the effect it had.
