Support for Clock Day
The day is traditionally created and supported by the Clock Crew from their website. Ever since 2005 Newgrounds has run a Clock Day competition and advertised the day in advance. As the Clock Crew is the foremost Crew on Newgrounds, Clock Day is usually the biggest Day of the year on Newgrounds with a massive increase in submissions and traffic.
Clock Day Protection
Clock Day is also significant because a very high percentage of the flashes submitted to the portal get Protected due to a tradition of voting 5, originally for Clock movies, but now dor all kinds of simple animations and joke submissions. This attracts a lot of submissions that flatter Clocks just to get through Judgment, and also subs that are have nothing to do with Clocks, hoping to use Clock Day 'goodwill' to be protected through judgment. On Clockday 2010, for example, just 39 movies were blammed out of 420 submissions, compared to a usual ratio of around 1/2 getting blammed.
