I ask for, um, completely non-personal reasons.

Man, 69,000 points doesn’t go as far as it used to. :(

No, points won’t ever do anything but give you bragging rights.

SIXTYNINETHOUSAND OMG HOW DID YOU

By the Noodles of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, I swear I will troll any Gamestop exec that gets admin powers on Kong. Other than that, kongrats and RAmen.

None will, don’t worry. I asked.

Congratulations guys!

I’m sure that all the eventually changes in the site will be for the best.
Also I really hope none of you guys lose your jobs. xD

Congrats and welcome GameStop to the Kongregate family.

Maybe they might have their game makers turn some of the games created by some Kong members into a game for one of the systems?

gamestop doesnt make games, it sells them

Seriously, I want to spit out my cheerios one morning after seeing Greg do some sort of dance.

How about this dance?

Or this?

I hardly see why writing a couple of articles on a popular casual gaming website warrants anything like a PS3.

I doubt points will ever be convertable into anything like money or stuff you could sell. Two many possibilities for abuse.

indeed.

Im not too concerned but I just want kongregate to stay as it is, no name change, no forums change, no webpage change, no chatroom change, that’s all I’m saying

 
Flag Post

I guess we will all have to wait to see what happens. Although I’m glad we’re finally losing the beta tag.

I suppose it’s good for kongregate, since they now have a steady source of income, since game-stop has several stores and everything.
it’s even better for the developers, since it draws attention to kongregate, and could get any game idea’s out there, since if you are making money off a game and the game becomes popular, it could warrant interest from a studio, like how some flash games get console versions.
it also means that kongregate might be pushed to do more with microtransactions, though that was pretty much going to happen anyway, considering the multiplayer games.
worst case scenario is that kongregate becomes popular and a lot of newer members come in, and they end up being swearing 12 year-olds.

I’m looking forward to Kongai being a game sold in GameStop too

I know greg won’t be fired. But does that mean there will be more badge creators? I would Like to see more badges and more challenges :D

 
Flag Post

Hm, yes. But, still… that’s what we have mods for, right? To make sure those 12 year olds grow up in the chatrooms…

Also, some brain power is needed to find the forums, so they’re pretty safe.
