Wow! Think about how crowded the Kongregate Party in 2011 is gonna be. O_O
Will it be held in some other place next year?

You better have gotten over 9000 for it, Jim!

I’ve annoyed a whole room by rick-rolling them, go jim.

Honestly? Slightly worried. When websites are aquired by big companies, they tend to start pissing people off (which probably explains why Newgrounds is doing so well).

I’m pretty sure he got a lot more than that.

$50-$100 per ride with the elevator? :3

Didn’t mean that, meant when Runescape came to Kongregate and there was that huge influx of, well, idiocy. :P

Unfortunately(?), I wasn’t here when it came to Kongregate. Was it really that bad?

You’re crazy, Vegard.

Many complaints, many indeed.

I didn’t really notice anything but the bad rating it got.

There’s potential for a whole lot of people to suddenly join, depending on how they intend to handle things. I certainly hope they won’t do that, though.

In case you didn’t read it the first time:
More staff to moderate :D

Actually, all that I’ve read is that there will likely be more staff to program. When’s the last time you saw someone silenced by Jim7 or duncanbeevers?

Edit: Jesus, this is a fast thread.

Once I get my first skill cape (my original goal), I’ll drop the game. Jagex pretty much ruined it
>_>

It used to be so good, back when there was still a wilderness, and no trade limits. :(

Short lived but pretty noticeable, a lot of roleplaying where it shouldn’t be, cursing, spam – but I guess that’s partially because Runescape is more popular among younger children (or it was when I played it, it was popular with my classmates when I was 10/11ish). We’ll see though, I just imagine a rise in users will inevitably mean a rise in bad behaviour. And not even the endearing bad behaviour, but the irritating stuff.

Edit: what do you mean “back when there was still a wilderness”?! It’s gone? IT WAS SO SCARY.

Time to empty my mute list :P

Yes, but fear not. Revenants have taken over the wilderness! Seriously, these creatures pretty much tear you apart :( .. and they added “PVP” worlds where you can PVP EVERYWHERE except for designated buildings/spots where you’re safe.

I loved Wilderness, it was the biggest and scariest thing about Runescape.

In all honesty, I doubt we’ll see significant change until a few months down the road. And I will really miss a close knit community if the site opens up and becomes more of a social site like Facebook than what it is now.

I want Kong to stay Kong, not Kong to become another AG/NG/FB

I was thinking more moderators.

Well I was remembering this post, I guess:

Honestly, the biggest change that we’ll likely see in the near future is the ability to hire more employees, especially programmers. Right now we have a grand total of 5 engineers on the team. Adding a few more will significantly increase our speed of development and our ability to bring cool new features to all of you! So yeah, there will be some changes – specifically, quicker changes in the direction we were already going, since we’ll have more resources. :)

Somehow I think ‘more moderators’ is lower on the to-do list anyhow. But as long as this purchase and the site changes don’t bring about that sudden influx of new users everyone’s afraid of, I guess it’s not much of a problem for the time being.

Maybe now gamestop will try to get some of the developer’s games on consoles.

Then I guess standard procedure’s still intact.

Yeah, having a main-stream of active forum users and close-knit chat rooms is why I came to Kongregate and not AG or NG. That and the fact that I can’t navigate the forums on AG and NG is… well bad.

That seems like it would be a pretty obviously bad move on their part. I’m pretty sure they realize how many angry 13 year olds will find ways to troll them if they mess up Kongregate.
