Thats my point exactly. In my opinion, if Kongregate took just a minute or two, LITERALLY a minute for each game that is put on kongregatte (yes, that adds up, but I do believe it is possible), and removed each crappy game, this site would be a lot better. (Again, I define crappy as copy+paste graphics, no gameplay value, and enough bugs to make it nearly unplayable)

That’s not feasible. “Crappy” is a subjective descriptor, and people’s opinions differ as to what is good. It’s obvious that many people loathe even the top rated games. Conversely, there are also a lot of fans of the low-rated, unpopular games. I highly doubt Kongregate would want to put someone on the payroll just to judge every single game on the site. That’s a waste of time, money, and manpower. One person would never get through every game, and paying several people to do that job would be an even more egregious waste of resources. This is why there is a rating system – they let the community decide what is “good” or “bad.” Even the bad ones deserve to be here as long as they aren’t breaking any rules.

Do you really think you would retain your Developer status if your idea were implemented?

If they froze all game uploads and worked nonstop at a min for each game, it would take about 47 days. They will not work non-stop and games will be continued to be uploaded.

I’m not sure if you are upset that your games aren’t getting the attention you think it deserves but as long as it is a non-stolen game, and game can be used very loosely, it can stay here. If you think a game should be removed, flag it.

Nobody can add friends to your account without being logged in as you. Someone else adding you as a Friend only adds to your Fan count, not your Friend count. Keep your account information secure.

Maybe you should post that in English so people can read. Many people don’t post with their main languages on English forums.

I ran it through Google Translate and came out with a bunch of ‘KHKHKHKH’ and the ocasional english word like ‘master’. Although, Google Translate is a machine translation rather than actual human translation.

The collabs sections were removed, so anything uploaded is now gone. There was a two month period of time where you could download it back to your computer if you lost it, but that’s already come and gone by now.

There’s obviously some sort of check in place, to see if someone has any badges when they post. So, why not expand on that and have some sort of warning about their post being filtered if they don’t earn a badge?

Pro:

  • It’ll make more users aware of the filter and will cut down on legitimate posts being filtered out.
  • It’ll add another barrier for the spam bots, since they’d have to either:
    • manually earn a badge.
    • click “Cancel” or whatever, and do it anyways.

Con:

  • It’d tip off the spam bot owners about how to bypass the filter, but it’s common knowledge anyways.

Since all the information is polled anyways, in the www.kongregate.com/rooms/roomid pages, why not consolidate it into a single page of chat information? At the very least, it could be a list of room names, their owners and the room mods for that room. It would make things a lot easier for many reasons.

I’m just curious, why did they remove the Collab section? I was gone when that happened I guess. I thought it was pretty neat, people getting to share their art on Kong.

Add something where you can share your artwork, music, etc.

(Yes I still want it readded)

If you mean somewhere on your profile to link to other sites like DeviantArt or SoundCloud, then I agree that that should be added, if you means somewhere to post them on-site, it was just removed due to not enough activity.

I suggest that Kongregate stop being so standoffish.
Meaning, more spreading the word.

(I hope my suggestion passes the 123aaadv0catus789 test ;P)

I am so tired of going to MMO’s and other multiplayer games, to only find that the community, is no longer there. I would really love an active section for games, or a filter under MMO’s that says “Most Active” I would really appreciate it. I hate going to all these old games or new games that have 0 population and everyone has picked up and left. Please please please consider this. i also posted this in http://www.kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/327296-activity-filter-under-highest-rating-and-most-played

In considering that the search engine of this forum is really bad, and that even this forum is not well organized, I’m just gonna repeat an important idea which must have been repeated a lot of times. (This thread has 613 pages, and nobody thought to reorganize that in sections) ?
I think that making earn points to players for their highscore would be a great idea. Reward a good highscore would be logical, and pleasant. It would gives us a motivation. I’m Third of the all-time ranking in a game, and I didn’t get anything, but I’ve points for making easy challenges, and for rating games :/ I just saw that I was also FIRST in a game of Futurecade, but nothing, even for the first position. (Futurecade has been played 5000 times).
The points would of course be given in function of the rank, but also of the number of players, and of the amount of time since the game has been added on the site. You could add a simple system of rewards to begin, it would be already cool, because I find this too important to be just ignored, after years of activity.
But of course, you could imagine a lot of perspective in modifying these criters at your advantage. You could decide to reward the 3 best players a lot if the game is old, but you would chose to reward them a little if the game is new, which would allows you to have most of the games tested as soon as they come. (And it’s very important for every webmaster, am I right) ?
Anyway, I think you understood the idea, it’s up to you.

And of course, I would also suggest you to ameliorate this forum, but MAINLY, your search engine !

What Kongretate has made for the world of “flash gaming” is awesome. The possibility to be rewarded and upgraded for playing, it’s cool. The fact to be in competition with other players for the highscores, it’s cool, but if it’s just ignored by the site, and that nobody get any reward for this, it’s a pity.

That’s it, have a good day, and sorry for my english !

That’s what badges are for, if a game deserves a badge for achieving a certain high score, it’ll get it, otherwise it’s not necessary, and rewards cheating even more, and potentially in a more severe way.

And of course, I would also suggest you to ameliorate this forum, but MAINLY, your search engine !

The search engine is fine, if used properly (which sadly isn’t advertised very well). If you add the name of the forum you’re looking for, or the index, and the word “discussion” to the query, it’ll narrow down the results an extremely large amount.

@123aaa789 : It’s the competition between the players that’s interesting. I saw that there was badges you know ? But even without rewards, the competition of highscore is more interesting for some people. The badges aren’t comparable. It’s cool, but it’s not the same.

I would like to be able to set my profile so that there isn’t an activity feed or that at least it isn’t so big. The new profile setup is horrid in my opinion and I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks so (though I may not be in the majority). I’d like to be able to choose to display my profile in the old layout under the options in the “edit profile” menu area.

Would this be a possibility?

(Feedback on this from an admin would be greatly appreciated.)

No. The admins have already answered this: maintaining two separate versions of the profile is (at least) twice as much work, and it’s simply not the best use of the developers’ time to do that.

Look at how many issues cropped up with this most recent update: if there were multiple versions of the profile they had to maintain, there’d be twice as many issues. It would rapidly become a huge time sink.

I agree with dxOne, in that a ‘blam button’ would open up too much potential for abuse, from people who are frivolous or malicious with their voting, especially… like, what if people blammed a really good game?

No, I agree that the best way to tell is how many views and votes it has, so if it doesn’t get x views or votes by x weeks, then blam it ;)

actually it took 3 or 4 weeks for rotmg to take off now its almost the no.1 played game on kong. it is also quickly losing its popularity.

How about Kongregate volume control, letting you mute a game before its noisy menu appears? Volume settings could carry over too, like if you mute one game, the next game would be muted by default.

I can’t see this being possible to do, why not just turn off your computer or browser volume.
