Screenshots aren’t really accepted anyway. Every report is read by an admin an appropriate action is taken, which is not always a ban.

Or even a silence. The administrators read the report unbiased, but that doesn’t mean thry will agree with you that there’s something to act on.

A search tab for what though? We already have one for games. Being able to find users via a simple search tab would be a good idea, although we can just use google. (Searching usernames with the game searcher works too.)

Not as of the most recent update to the search bar, however UnknownGuardian did outline a neat way to do so in this post.

I use kong mobile on my android phone. This app is beggining to disappoint. I cannot view my profile. Try to view others and it doesn’t work. Just tells me to send a report or force close. And what’s with not being able to use chat? All very disapointing

Kongregate didn’t make the app. Secondly, it’s for forums only.

When you hover over the like button on a game, it doesn’t show who likes it anymore. Can you guys please fix that?
This annoys me a ton. I think it was caused by the Backend update a bit ago.

I’m not sure, but it might be a Facebook change.

Et Tu, Search function? (Sorry, really wanted to make a "Ides of March joke)

While the search function was rather lacking, it allowed users to search the forums if they knew what they were doing (use the right keywords and such). Since one of these “Let’s make Kong like Facebook and myspace” updates in the past few weeks, it seems that the search function is restricted to show games only.
While I know games are the main reason for Kong, the use of the forums is an important part for some games. Being unable to search through forums that extend back thousands of threads and posts restricts the usefulness of the forum. Before, the search function would still show you ~5 games that sort of matched what you were typing into the search bar before you hit “Show more results”. Even then, if the “more results” had some contextual relationship to some games, it showed them. But if it was a search that was focused on a forum thread, it would usually show several instances of that thread/keyword.
Is there any chance of having it reverted back to the usefulness before or will forums see dead threads past page 2 and a massive influx of threads asking questions that could have been answered with a once simple search?

Edit: Ah, so there is some work on this… Thanks for the info.

We’re going to be adding a separate forum search, and I think we’re also planning to add developers to the main search. It’s pretty rare for people to search for regular users.

there could be a new challenge button when you hover over the achivements tab at the top if it doesn’t work or you want another challenge. it can only be used twice a day.

Do you mean like a system to recommend badges for you to go after? If so, there’s a section for that on the homepage. If you mean like another badge of the day or weekly challenge thing, that probably wouldn’t happen, since those are supposed to be just as they are, one for the time period.

Maybe making Forum Games does not count through post?It would allow the “Above Poster” game to be legal.

Make the site more CROW friendly:

1. Rename OT to CROW DISCUSSION
2. Rename the site to CROWgregate
3. Add badges to games with CROWS :>>>>

 
Flag Post

Also force the OT mods to provide a reason for each thread they lock.

i’d love it if there were a category or some sort of tag to denote games that offer premium content. there are a lot of games i’ve enjoyed over the last few years that offered it, but i was in no financial position to indulge. now that i can, i’d like to go back and replay those games, and show a little support to the people who made them. but of course i can’t remember them all.

thank you, uuu2. (that would be an awkward thing to say out loud, btw.)

Sometimes people really, really don’t like to mute and/or report. It’s difficult to articulate a quick but efficient explanation as to why those two features are useful. Maybe if two pages were made that quickly explain what muting and reporting is and why it’s effective and important?

it wold be great if recomended games part suggest games that i dont played already(or atleast i dont earnd any achivment)

I would like the option to remove games’ updates from your activity feed without having to start up the game. Just now, Battle Dawn posted a new message. I haven’t played the game in a long while, but because of them posting a message I have to start up the game again (give them extra plays) and block it.

It would be nice if next to like and comment there’d be a little X that blocks the game from reappearing in your feed.

You should be able to do that from your profile, I think.

Change Kongregate’s default font to something more interesting like Comic Sans

If you go to the game page there’s a button to the bottom-right below the game that says “block,” you can use that to block all future messages from the game. If you ever want to change your mind, you can go to your blocked games/users page and change things from there.
