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.

You are right, I should flag some of them and maybe vote down their tags (Other then rating them 1/5). It doesn’t matter much really, I was looking for the worst games.
My next suggestion will be editing and deleting game comments, like we do to our posts here.

You can delete them from your comments page, so the only way of really editing them is to copy it, delete it, and then paste it and edit it, and re-comment it.

I believe that Kongregate could prevent people from easily making accounts just to spam by making some kind of requirement to post on the forums… Something like being required to level 5 on Kongregate or maybe you need to have a 1 week old account or something… I find it very annoying when someone makes many new accounts just to keep spamming somewhere after being banned…

There are anti-spam measures in place, I think one of them usually requires you to have played a game or earned a badge, or else it hides your posts. Other than that, having time requirements wouldn’t do much once people realize they could just make, let’s say 5 accounts every day, and then in a week’s time they’ll have 5 for one day, then 5 for the next, and they’ll just keep getting more accounts from what they made the week before, so hardly a deterrent.

You have a point there… I think I made my post without thinking much cause there was this guy who just kept posting on the forums how to hack a game and he just keeps posting and getting his posts deleted and HE STILL ISN’T BANNED. How does that work anyway? How many times must he keep posting until the mods put a stop to it for good?

REEDIT:
Does anyone here know how it works when someone keeps posting the same thing that gets deleted every time and nothing is done to stop him from continuing to do it? Shouldn’t he get banned or something? Or does Kongregate just let people keep spamming in this way…?

Lol I didn’t know that there was a page like that. Thanks.
