API, also known as Application Programming Interface, is the software system introduced in 2007 that allows users to generate revenue from their games and movies, as part of the Revenue Sharing scheme on Newgrounds. Newgrounds has a partnership with CPMStar, an advertisement company, that allows users' flash games to earn revenue regardless of where people view the game or movie. This helps authors make money while still letting other websites choose to host their work. Revenue can be shared between multiple people. Flashes have unique IDs. Some ads pay based on how many views they get, some by how many click-throughs they get and some by how many customers buy something from the advertiser. Every version of Flash after 4 is supported. Whenever authors make over $50, they are paid via check or paypal.

Eligible work Edit

Parodies are allowed, but work that reflects poorly on advertisers, such as adult material, racism, and stolen work, is ineligible.

API's in general Edit

To quote Wikipedia: "An application programming interface (API) is a particular set of rules and specifications that software programs can follow to communicate with each other. It serves as an interface between different software programs and facilitates their interaction, similar to the way the user interface facilitates interaction between humans and computers." However, on Newgrounds, the phrase is often used to refer to the whole Revenue Sharing system.
