When editing my profile, I noticed there were spaces for an Xbox Gamertag, a PSN Username, and a Twitter account.

I suggest two further spaces to be filled: Deviantart and Soundcloud.

I know that the arts & sounds on Kongregate are being phased out, and it was suggested that we upload our works to Deviantart and Soundcloud instead. If we were given spaces on our profiles to link to these sites, then it would allow us to easily link to our works.

Although Kong has blocked certain tags (such as , , <script>, etc.) for obvious reasons, I feel that and can be pretty useful tags, especially for organization purposes.

But what about all the other art and sound sharing sites available? Maybe it would be better to have a space for a general link to the user’s art or sound sharing site.

Hello.

I think you should unite the two norwegian chatrooms, and name it Jotunheimen. Currently there is almost no activity in Ullsokken.

Add a “Suspicious Badge/Points Activity” report option. I think it’s a huge issue that is going unnoticed by the vast majority of people because it’s more or less ignored. I know it’s a tough issue, especially when it comes to finding the people that are doing it (you either need to stalk the high scores or randomly stumble upon their profile and notice), but that’s an issue in itself.

At least with an abuse option, it raises some awareness and on the back-end (I imagine they’re sorted by category, or some sort of organizational system) it gives the community administrators a better, more efficient way to handle the reports and can address them better/more clearly/quicker.

i would like to see chat rooms based on ages for example 20’s,30’s,40’s/etc chat rooms so people like me can deal with people in my own age range.

There’s absolutely no way to regulate it, use a K+ private room.

I would like to see a tag added for “programming” games like Light-Bot, Manufactoria, KOHCTPYKTOP, etc. It’s definitely a distinct genre, beyond the “puzzle” tag that all of those games are currently shoehorned into.

You can use the Tag Suggestions thread for that. I’d like to see that tag, actually, since I enjoy those kind of games.

Oops! I came here looking for a “suggestions” thread and found it without checking out the rest of the stickies. Thanks.

If your going to have advertisement links in the achievements area or near the game window please make them open in a new window. I’m probably not the only one playing on a touch pad. Its really annoying when I click outside of it and lose all my progress.

The “Recommended Games” list on the front page. It recommends games to me if I rate them highly. The problem with that is that I rate games whether they are good or not, not whether I like them. For example, there might be a well crafted shooter on kongregate that’s highly polished and I appreciate it, so I give it a 4 or 5 star depending on how well the game plays. However, I do not give it a 4 or 5 star because I like it.

I look in the “Recommended Games” list and I see games that I would honestly hate to play, but I’m sure have merit.

In addition to that, the most frequent occurrence of games in the “Recommended Games” list are games that I have already played, even liked, but haven’t rated either because I forgot, or just because I frequently don’t scroll down to notice the “give this game a star” feature.

So in conclusion, I think there should be a different way for figuring out which games a user might want to play other than its rating. And games that have already been played but not rated shouldn’t appear in the “Recommended Games” list.

I was thinking something around the lines of a "Play Later" type of feature. Sometimes, there’s a game you’re not done with, you think you may want to play it again later, but you don’t have the time right now. Play Later would be kind of like YouTube’s Watch Later, where it composes a list of videos (in this case, games) that you put under there to be used later.


Also, 600 pages / 15000 posts!

You can use the recently played feature.

Kongregate needs a solution to gaming, occupations and definently safer chats because some people are sick in da head! What do you say?

What other way is there?

There is, muting.

Yes, but the recently played feature only goes for so long.

You can report a user, or simply mute if they’re chat flooding.

Is it just me or does the " Hot new games" rarely update?

They’re updated manually, so they’ll only change whenever the admins get around to changing them.

The “GAME” tab shows the 2 most recently played games.

We should have a forum reputation system implemented with a forum signature. So basically, the more rep you get, the more your signature grows.

Elaborate.

I think he means something like a system where you can thumbs-up posts, and the amount of thumbs-up you have affects the length of a signature you can have below your posts.

I’m not a huge fan of having signatures below posts, as it’d be breaking the flow of threads (I like being able to go from one post to the next without a break in between), and can be a little spammy (when a signature is longer than the post it accompanies, there’s something wrong). However, I’ve always advocated having something in the grey box to the left, since there’s often a lot of blank space there that could have something put into it (like this post, for example, there’s quite a bit of space there).

For a reputation system, again I’m not a fan, as it can be abused (alternate accounts and such), and generally isn’t that necessary (I’m a fan of having a simpler looking and functioning forums).

I don’t know if this is already available and I don’t know it, but a random game feature would be nice. I have often come here and been left flustered, like when you look at your fridge and you don’t feel like anything.
