The home page of Newgrounds- the page that www.newgrounds.com takes you to - is usually refered to as the '''Front Page''' by users. Having one's work featured on the home page is compared to being put on the front page of a newspaper- being "Front Paged" and is an essential concept in Newgrounds culture. As Home page, it acts as a hub for all the other pages and clicking on the header of any page will bring you to Front Page. The page is used as the main communication and promotion center of the entire website; it contains content that the admins like, including selected audio, flash , and art submissions. It also contains important news posts from the admins, and top user-rated submissions that are posted by [[P-Bot]] on a daily basis.

Administrators, usually [[Tom Fulp]], but sometimes [[Wade Fulp]], choose submissions to feature on the Front Page using a number of different criteria. They may choose what they personally like; what they believe attracts traffic to the site or what they think people are looking for. Although their choice does not always mean that they are particularly impressed by the work, being ''Front Paged '' is usually treated as something exciting and prestigious- typcially authors etc. will thank Tom for Front Paging them in notes etc. Since most traffic comes to Newgrounds via this page, it may mean a lot more exposure for the material.
