This sounds interesting, another reason I’d like to be a K+ Member.

I have a suggestion for the site. How about letting us set up multiple lists of favorite games. This way we can place fav games into personal categories. Thanks for considering it.

I have two suggestions.

1. That like profile skins you allow people to replace their K+ symbol by their name with symbols from their favorite games.

2. The most frustrating thing about Kongregate badge hunting is the hunting part of it. So many choices and to just go down a list means getting a ton of similar games. Would be nice to have a random badge feature with a tag filter.

For the first, the resolution might not allow that to be a feasible feature, and you can always use your avatar for that.

For the second, you could always use something like Badge Browser to show you all of your unearned badges and choose random ones for there, or some other user made programs that do similar things. The regular badges page on-site does have the capability to filter by genre already, though, so going to a random page from a filtered list could do what you want.

But you don’t have anything to discuss. There’s nothing better to get from a K+ forum.

I can totally see a +100 page, intense debate about the fact that Golden Bacon is superior to Honey Badger.

I could see the merit of having a Kong+ only forum, but then again I also see the merit of just keeping all Kong+ discussion to the thread already in this forum. On one hand, if enough people continue to get Kong+ and if some more features get added, it might be better to have a thread for each, so a forum of its own might be better, but for now I can still see the one thread doing its job.

This prevents waiting hours for a mod to maybe remove posts that are meant to derail.

I have never seen a forum where this has been used, nor do I want to, as it would be easily abusable, and you could tilt the discussion of a forum to what you want it to be, and in most cases that would not be a good idea (such as in Serious Discussion, it’s better to have the broad opinion of everyone than just what the poster wants).

What you’re suggesting is just a different version of the “only let certain people view threads” idea. There’s nothing to stop you from just deleting every post from certain users.

Trying to bring this back from the dead Kong: A feature on the Homepage that shows a “Random Game”. Or a feature on the Homepage that could bring you to a badged game. This would help me a lot. It’s how I found my favorite game on Kongregate before the feature was removed.

I like this.

Yay.

The more I think about it, the more it makes sense:

  • Direct feedback for any potential changes to K+
  • Used as a marketing tool to help draw in and retain non-Kong PUR members (like the Gamestop forum)
  • Direct feed back to beta developers and more detailed discussion
  • Gives K+ users a little closer connection to moderators/administrators
  • If any K+-only promos/deals were to take place in the future, it’d be a more appropriate place to announce it (read: no ultra intense forum rage from everyone non-K+/hates K+)
  • Any assorted K+-related issues that I can’t think of off the top of my head (either tech support, general chat, or whatever)

Maybe one more filter category add here, for games which were not rated yet by the user, with subsequent “newest first” and “oldest first”:

Like the filters which allow to sort out already (un)earned badges. 60K+ games is an enormous number! :D Really can’t imagine a comfortable way to browse through them and sort out games I definitely won’t play again. Rating games and filtering comes to mind.

If there’s another way atm plz don’t keep it a secret! :)

I would absolutely love a feature to show only unrated games (maybe not a filter, but a checkbox to make it compatible with the already existing dropdown sorts). There exists one for searching mobile games on the Kong app, so I can’t see why there shouldn’t be one n the main site (and recommended games doesn’t count, since it either never shows me unrated games, or only shows me games uploaded a week prior).

Since things like this happen (sorry, not trying to single you out), why not have a “Welcome to Kongregate” tutorial? It could show the basic but key aspects of the site: profile, chat, forums and badges. It could (read: should) end in this.

It could be opt-out, but I think it should be required. It’d only be a few minutes, so for a regular, new user, it’d be no big deal, just informative, but for alts, it would be a deterrent.

I find it hilarious how in the aspects you listed, none of them are the main point of Kongregate, a gaming website. :P

Though, I guess badges could sort of qualify as that, but eh.

Kongregate is social gaming. ;)

 
Flag Post

Okay, social gaming, then. Based on that, I assume the site to be half-social and half-gaming. Yet you list three social aspects and only one gaming aspect. :(

Direct feedback for any potential changes to K+

You only need one thread for this.

Used as a marketing tool to help draw in and retain non-Kong PUR members (like the Gamestop forum)

Might be feasible, but it’s way less useful/needed than private rooms in terms of posting contents.

Direct feed back to beta developers and more detailed discussion

That is if the beta dev even use the forum. Comment section can already provide criticisms/suggestions efficiently since it doesn’t have as much comment traffic as a non-beta game.

Gives K+ users a little closer connection to moderators/administrators

How does that work?

If any K+-only promos/deals were to take place in the future, it’d be a more appropriate place to announce it (read: no ultra intense forum rage from everyone non-K+/hates K+)

Why would you place it there? Then people who don’t have K+ won’t be able to see the promo and possibly buying them.

Any assorted K+-related issues that I can’t think of off the top of my head (either tech support, general chat, or whatever)

Back to your first point. Could be done in one single thread.

 
Flag Post

To be fair, the main point of the site is whatever people want it to be, so for some it’s the games, for others it’s the chat, for others it’s the forums, and so on.


As for the suggestion at hand, I agree that some sort of introductory thing would be nice, or at least making it a little more prominent than putting it all in the footer where not many people look.

Make it so we get 9999999999^999999999999999999999^ kreds for reaching level 66.

If and when the level cap is raised, 66 won’t really require all that many points (under 40,000 for sure), and even though this is probably not a serious suggestion, Kreds will most likely never be given for leveling up, as it’s worth real money (however, with the removal of tips, it won’t really be open to abuse as it was before, so it’s not as out of the question as it used to be).

Then raise the level you need to get your kreds to level cap+1. It’s pretty simple.

This is already implemented.

maybe a feature to search or filter results so that i can search the discussion forums if i want to without all the game forums and games in the results
