Do not fill this in!== Deactivation and Inactivity == In 2012, several updates occurred which effectively removed the users' ability to whistle and flag abusive content, causing a stir among the ranks who relied on their whistles to perform their duty. Eventually, this absence was resolved through implementation of Portal Moderators sometime that year. It became clear from that point onwards that the need for a whistle-count threshold by the collective flagging of the community was obsolete. Effectively, the whistle system itself was rendered ineffectual. This in turn made the NGPD's vigilance in the Portal less necessary due to the fact that any single user could directly report an abusive flash submission to a Portal Mod for review and deletion. Furthermore, the Elite Guards Barracks made the continued operations of the NGPD significantly more redundant now that the whistle system was out of the equation. Having accomplished their mission to the best of their abilities, the NGPD was no longer needed and is presumed to be inactive as of November 30, 2012 - after seven years of devoted service to Newgrounds. In closing, Commissioner TailsPrower expressed hopes that future site-wide updates will present new opportunities for the NGPD to rise up and serve the Portal once more. Until then, the Beast slumbers.
