Happy New Year (and small news update)

12/27/12 by BlazingDragon

Well, my computer all but stopped working and I had to wipe the hard drive and install a new operating system. Thankfully, much of my work was backed up, but it will take a while to reinstall all my software and be uploading music again.

That aside, this has been an awesome year on Newgrounds! I took 3rd place in the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch, released a significant amount of material, wrote music for some great projects, and gained a ton of new followers. Thank you all for the support, and I can't wait to see what 2013 will bring.

Happy New Year! :D

we've all been there, well done for backing up :P I never would of thought ahead like that

deadmau5 was a forum username and it just stuck - but if you really dislike it it's alot easier now, what you thinking of being called anyways? Blaze? or summit completely different

happy new year from me :D
(loving the new music)

Well, I only backed up because I've gone through the pain of losing everything once before. That was devastating!

I didn't know that about deadmau5. That's an interesting piece of information. I'll probably end up keeping my user name here, as I'm not sure what I'd change it to.

Thanks! :D



I think BlazingDragon's a cool name (in my opinion). But if you want to change it to something pro you can send a PM to an admin (I recommend Tom or Wade) and request a name change (be detailed). The chances of changing your name are high since you have quite some exposure and 700+ fans, besides you earned 3rd Place in the NGADM. It could take a few days, though.

Thanks for the tip. I wasn't sure how to go about that.

BlazingDragon isn't a bad name, but it's kind of weird outside of the internet. I'll meet people and they'll ask where they can hear my music. I feel a little awkward when I say, "Yes, go to 'Blazing Dragon dot newgrounds dot com'." Especially if the person I'm talking to is one of my professors or something, lol.

I guess what I really need is not to change my name but to get a professional looking website of my own to direct people to!



This new year is gonna be some surprise for many on here. Let's see what happens, good friend.

Hopefully they are pleasant surprises. Best to you in the coming year. :)



Well, I wanted something original instead of something that sounds noobish and childish (especially with numbers on the end). The mass majority of my friends approve of my name change.

12/29/12 BlazingDragon responds:

I've wanted to change my name for years. BlazingDragon was a name I made at age 11, and it seems unprofessional to me. But I've built such a foundation on it that I'm hesitant to change now.

Did you have to PM a mod to change it?



happy new year blaze have a wonderful new year and all you possible wishes wish to come true and keep the awsome music up

12/29/12 BlazingDragon responds:

Thanks, and all the best to you as well! I appreciate your support. :)



Wish you a happy new year, too! I hope you ll get your it problems solved soon. Cant wait to hear new pieces of yours!

12/29/12 BlazingDragon responds:

Thanks! I'll be keeping up with your works as well.



Happy early new year, BD. Good to see you getting back on track after that malicious incident.

(Psst, I'm dat Criminal if you don't recognize me)
