Leaving Newgrounds & social media as a whole.

Posted by Ant - November 29th, 2021

Hello everyone.

I am sure you have read my last news post. I have been on a break for the past couple weeks but I think that it's time I retire. Due to lack of motivation to continue what I do on here and other various reasons, I have decided that I am quitting Newgrounds along with my other social media accounts besides Discord. (Add me if u wanna chat: Ant#1060) I am honestly not liking any of the submissions I make here anyways and think they are all stupid. Now that I have had my break I have thought over some stuff and came to the conclusion that I don't like programming as much as I thought I did... I have also realized that during my break I have felt so much better and a lot less stressed and sad. I have had a couple moments during my break but now that I have breathed a bit and moved on from those times I think that my mental state may improve. I do not know what I am going to do now since I have been bored out of my mind but at least I still have my friends, family and my lovely girlfriend to spend time with. I think that I'll find something to do later on in the future. If I ever post anything here it's most likely projects I am just finishing up or collaborations that I was or am a part of. I honestly don't like my popularity either, it scares me and makes me nervous... Social media in this day and age is just not a healthy place for me to be. I appreciate all you guys have done throughout my journey here on Newgrounds but it's now time I leave. Like I said though I'll be active on Discord so hmu on there if you have any questions or just wanna chat, I am completely open to that. (Again its Ant#1060) I hope you guys are doing better than I am rn and also that you have a good rest of your day.

Goodbye everyone, I love you all. <3

I might be back later on in the future, just with school and stuff social media tends to stress me out… thanks for all the very kind messages everyone, you guys truly are the best!




It sucks to see such a good user leave, but good luck on the things you do in the future

rip we jus kilt the club
I’ll miss you


Whoa I Would Reconsider Leaveing Take A Small Break Though Don't Leave Out Right You Should Definitely Take A Hiatus And Think Long And Hard Before You Decide Upon It

I respect your decision ant. I hope your able to do things outside of here that will make your life a lot better. We will never forget your service here and you as a whole. Have fun outside of here dude. We will miss you.
-Best wishes from Taka (again) (again) (again)

Sorry to hear the news, I'll wish you the best of luck on your future endeavors.

It was nice knowing you for a short time.

you shalt go on your own path that you created

I hope that the memories you got from here were positive even tho you lately felt bad. You know seeing people go and leave Newgrounds is hard but I 100% know how painful and stressful it is for ANYBODY with your audience to not feel a little dull or just stressed by everything and you also gotta think about it your mental health and life in general. You know sometimes I feel like people like you and others deserve a break. It's very very sad you retire but I am happy that you can feel more comfortable without this Newgrounds mumbo jumbo getting in the way

Bye Ant, its ok leaving social media but this is sad for me, i just can say thanks for support my stupid art and just believe in me, idk man i just dont wanna see this account deleted cuz its something special for me now, something like a good memorie, also you are a good friend, TQM <33333

Hello Ant, the most important thing is your health and that you are happy with your work whatever it is, lean on your family and ask for their help.
