I am pretty fed up with the search function as of late. It should be possible to filter search results by game category or, in the case of results in the forums, by the forum they have been posted in.
It should also be possible to search in a specific category.

And a bit on sorting games: the current ways to sort games are fine, but it should be possible to sort favourites into categories. And an additional sorting option should be by badges, so that games with badges show up first.

you can, I just forgot how.
Theres special codes where you can do filters in the search bar and only that word in this part of kongregate will show up

Yes, but it would be alot simpler and less painful if they would just implement a better search system.

I think it’d be cool, though I’m not getting my hopes up, but change the word “Congratulations” when earning a badge to “Kongratz” or “Kongratulations” or something relating to Kong. Just thought it’d be cleaver.

Super off topic, but what is with all these people who have icons that contain a few letters/numbers in front of a space background? (I.E. the person above me)

Back to on-topic. Kongregate should really have signatures for the forums

For the first, it’s just a for fun thing. It was started by UnknownGuardian making avatars for people who are regulars in the room he’s in, and then it branched to a bunch of others (such as myself) asking for them. Personally, I did it because I love to change my avatar every couple weeks, so I’m always looking for more to have, but others might have different reasons.

For the second, signatures have been requested multiple times before, but I still think that they’d be more of a space-waster than a useful thing to have below posts. However, I can see the grey box to the left being a nice spot to have a small blurb of some sort, since with larger posts, even as long as this one I’m making right now, there’s quite a bit of unused space there.

It’s not even necessary for the reason you want them. Hover over a developer account’s name or avatar, and a list of games uploaded are displayed. In other words, your games are already linked in every post you make.

Ok then, I will make a suggestion that has nothing to do with me. Just an idea with what Kongregate can do with the level system. Maybe they could implement a “rate power” thing, similar to that of Newgrounds. (This has probably been suggested 10000 times, and considered by every person alive, but I am just going to say it here)

How would that work? Is it abuseable? Will it just turn into a massive popularity contest?

No, I would imagine that, if it was implemented, a level 65’s vote would count 1.5x, or 2x, as much as a level 1

I cant think of a simple way to explain how it would work. :C

The thing about that system is that it assumes that people should be given more rating power, I don’t see why I should have any more say than anyone else, or vice versa.

1.5x as much power for a level 65 is barely noticeable (i think). I just feel that kongregate has to do SOMETHING with their level system. I dont know if you have ever been to a website called Funorb, but they have a similar system to that of kongregates, except they actually have rewards—which I found to be a big difference.
Either that, or maybe have a 1 kred bonus for every level :D.

If it’s barely noticeable, then what’s the point?


Bottom line is that there is no substantial reward that Kongregate can offer that would not be abused by Kongregate’s policy of allowing unlimited alts, all with access to the same save files (otherwise, that reward would already be implemented). Until and unless that policy changes, there won’t be any rewards for leveling up.

Kongregate will never resort to a permanent IP-ban. There’s a temp IP-ban already in place, in certain circumstances.

id like to be able to rate games i have already played without having to go to each and every games page to do it. I have a page of all recommended games that show current kong wide rating but i can’t just click it when i know that i already like it?

The recently played games page is the only other place that you can rate games from other than on the gamepage itself, so if you’ve played them recently you can rate them from there. I’m not so sure that allowing ratings from the recommended games page is a good idea, since those are supposed to be games that you haven’t rated, so it’s assumed that you haven’t played them before (or at least enough to have wanted to rate them before).

Why? If any fan is annoying, or bothering you just block them. I don’t see why the removal of a fan would be useful.

We should have the ability to hide our fans list instead of removing fans.

Agreed.

Re-tag some games. Many low rating games have wrong tags. Also, remove troll/incredibly/inappropriate games if possible

Kongregate Staff will only remove a game if it is stolen or reported (flagged) multiple times for a certain reason such as, inappropriate content.

Tags are voted on by users, so if you feel that the tags on a game aren’t appropriate for that game, then you can vote them down.

Also, games with low ratings probably aren’t played very often, so the tags associated with them might not be very accurate.
