Hey everyone ^.^
It turns out the issue with the art portal is fixed. However, my friends and I were totally wrong with what caused this to happen. So it turns out, a massive content creator here on Newgrounds deleted their account, which forced their scouts and their scouts' scouts to loose their privileges, all this at once messed with the system >.< If you go over to my art page, you will see I was scouted by I-bot, meaning I was affected by the issue too. If any of my scouts are reading this, dont worry! I learnt that I-bot has saved a lot of people by scouting them when the person who originally deleted their account lost their scouts and so on. I hope they are doing well.
Tom said that in the future he would have our list of scouts appear under our names in the art section of our profile like before ^.^ which is fantastic, I would like to continue scouting people. Thank you to the team for all of your hard work, and I am sorry I mistook the Newgrounds update to have an impact on the art portal, it turns out, I do not think it was anything like that but who knows ^.^; ROFL
Cheers everyone, enjoy your week
