New! Improved! Report a jerk! Thank a mod!

view entry

While we expect only the best behavior from our players, and most of you really could play the hero on an afterschool special, one does occasionally run across someone on Kongregate who more closely resembles the schoolyard bully with a fixation for swirlies. Or pie.

Well now there's an easy way to deal with them that doesn't involve getting blood on your shirt: each user now has a link to report abuse on their profile. Just click the link, select the appropriate category, and fill in details if needed, and it will feed into an efficient new system for us to handle.

But wait, there's more! The job of a moderator is a little less thankless as we've also added a link to express your gratitude from their profile. So the next time one of them kicks a troll or gives you sage advice on infecting Madagascar make sure you drop them a line.
