Newgrounds includes various community features: In 1994, Tom Fulp launched a Neo Geo fanzine by the name "New Ground" (from the Greek roots neo- and geo- translated into English) sending sporadic issues to around 100 members of a club on Prodigy.
After their affiliation with Troma ended in 2003, Newgrounds switched to a different bandwidth provider, which significantly reduced hosting costs.
2004 saw some fiscal recovery from the online market crash, and the Numa Numa Dance viral phenomenon made its debut on Newgrounds near the end of the year, and became one of the first viral videos on the internet.
Tom Fulp remains the site's owner and still regularly produces in-house content.
Its offices are headquartered in the Glenside neighborhood of Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania.
Ad revenue had increased, so Fulp hired Ross and together they started development of the automated Portal, which would allow users to submit their own games to the website.
After the dot-com bubble collapsed, Newgrounds struggled to pay its hosting costs.
After introducing banner ads to pay for growing hosting bills, Fulp partnered with Troma, who hosted the site in exchange for a share of ad revenue.Parents need to know that this clearinghouse for Flash content posts uncensored, unedited user-generated content and is for enthusiasts only.The site's legal terms stipulate that kids 13-17 are supposed to have parental permission to join the site, and anyone under 18 is banned (in theory) from looking at the Adult Features section, but there's no real safeguard to ensure those rules are followed.In 1997, Fulp created the games "Club a Seal II" and "Assassin II," and decided that he wanted a new place to host these games.He created a separate website, New Ground Atomix, for this purpose.
