We all have that problem when we want to see what friends are online, but we have to leave the game that we our currently on. I would like to suggest that we have the friends list highlight-able/Interactive (hover over with pointer) when opened your friends will pop up to who was on. Also it will include the last time logged-in. There will be a search bar that will appear to search for anyone on your friends list. The person that has been searched will appear with there avatar/picture, name, and last logging-in time. If the person would so happen to be logged in there will be a green circle to the left of the picture. If offline the will be sent to the bottom of the list with a red circle. there if you click on the person an box will appear showing there recent activities such as badges earned, games played, or simply their shouts.

Thank-you for your time and considerate

Not really necessary, you can just click on your friends with the wheel ( which is between the left and the right mouse button), it will automatically open in a new tab.

We don’t all have that middle mouse button… I use a trackpad… There’s an alternate way of opening links in a new tab though… Just hold CTRL when you left click.

Woops, I forgot. Just hold ctrl and click the left mouse button.

It really irks me that in the “Recommended Badges” section, Kong keeps recommending badges for games that I gave a measly 1 star to. Even if I click the X to dismiss the recommendation, it keeps recommending them. If I found a game to be sufficiently not to my taste to give it only 1 star,then even for a 5 point easy badge, it’s not worth it to me to play. Surely if badges are going to be recommended, then what I think of the game should be considered in giving one.

What of you add timestamps to the chat sometimes you don’t know how long a message was written a local timespamp is enough based on your PC time. or you can also have a global one on 0 GMT

You could try the mouseover timestamp or in-chat timestamp script (personally, I use the mouseover one) to show what time messages were sent at in chat.

Kong should allow us to use our EB games gift cards to purchase kreds.

IT IS MY FIRM BELIEF THAT A “BADGE SUGGESTIONS THREADWITHIN THE KONGREGATE FORUM, AVAILABLE TO A LIMITED FORUM COMMUNITY, IS INSUFFICIENT FOR THE ENTIRE KONGREGATE COMMUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN DETERMINING WHICH GAMES GET BADGED
ALTHOUGH KONGREGATERS CAN INFLUENCE BADGING THROUGH RATINGS, I ALSO BELIEVE THAT THAT IS INSUFFICIENT
THEREFORE I HIGHLY SUGGEST AND RECOMMEND AND ADVOCATE AND SANCTION AND EXTOL A BUTTON INCLUDED WITHIN GAMES THAT ALLOWS ONE TO PRESS IT AND IT INCREASES A COUNT
A COUNT CALLED: THIS GAME SHOULD BE BADGED!
HENCE, THE BADGEMAKERS SHALL BE ABLE TO SEE MORE COMMUNITY OPINION, AND ALLOW IT TO FURTHER INFLUENCE THEIR DECISIONSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

The community at large has proven that they don’t really know what’s best for them. The badge suggestion thread is just that, a suggestion. If it happens to be what the final outcome is, that’s simply because the suggestion was what raw and/or Greg had in mind already.

They’ve both proven beyond a doubt that they’re more then capable of selecting the right badges for the right games.

People can basically give their say just by rating the game, greg and raw don’t get every badge from that thread, but rather will look through it for some suggestions, and get many other games by looking at the game ratings. If a game is rated highly (usually over 3.75) it has a good chance, so if you really want it to because you like it, rate it highly, comment about it, and hope for the rest of the community to also rate it highly.

It’s not as cut and dry as that. Most games on the site are written on Flash. A lot of phones don’t support Flash.

You don’t generally log into games, though, only if they’re specifically made for mobile and specifically made as standalone games (so far Escape is the only one with that option). Otherwise, the Android app works well for all of the games on it, or just using the mobile site (m.Kongregate.com) work fine for the forums or some other games (I’ve used the mobile site just to play some multiplayer games with energy systems that involve just clicking a button when I don’t have access to a computer, and posting in the forums works nicely from it as well).

Some companies also maintain separate environments for different websites that support the same game. For some games, environmental integrity is compromised if they allow someone with an advanced account on an old environment to log in with his same account in a new environment. For instance, if someone from a game server with level 100 accounts and end-game equipment then was able to log into a new server where people had not even reached level 50, that would be a bad thing. For other games, it’s a matter of resources or licensing. One portal may insist on having a sandboxed environment that doesn’t interact with a rival portal’s community. At other times, the developers simply don’t feel the time and cost in effort/resources is worth integrating accounts.

WHEN are they going to add the new tag search system?

(searching for multiple tags and filtering out tags. for example: fantasy pixel -penguins <this will search for games with the fantasy and pixel tags but filter out those with the penguin tag)

Connect kong to your email and it works the same way.

Why is there a separate forum inside the Gamestop App for PC and one here. They should be integrated in the Discover Beta tab of the app.

Kongregate NEEDS TO REGULATE the games that are uploaded on the website… OTHER than just deleting games with a rating of 2/5 or lower. I would say that, hmmm, about 60% of games on kongregate can’t even be classified as games (you know what i mean). Most games end up with, like, 60 plays, even months after they were uploaded.

Kongregate is the YouTube of games. Just like YouTube accepts all videos, regardless of quality (unless they break the terms of the site), so Kongregate accepts all games, regardless of quality.

I am saying that it is too easy to get a game on this site. Honestly, if i REALLY wanted to, I could post 50 games on this site, and only spend a total of about 3~5 minutes MAKING those 50 games. The bad part about that is that maybe i spent a lost of time drawing up a REALLY cool icon for each game, so each game, in the “under judgement” tab, would look really cool, my reasoning being that people associate really cool icons with really cool games.

So, with that happening, the crappy games (this is the answer to your question), as in the games with NO fun gameplay, NO replay value, COMPLETELY crap graphics (As in they took a photo from the internet and didn’t even make the background transparent), and more buggy aspects than working ones!

What I am saying is, there are games that, in all fairness, deserve tens of thousands of plays, yet receive less than one thousand plays.
In other words, I have seen a few really great games that, after a few months, have less than one thousand plays. Something happens, maybe a kid told their friends about it, that those friends to their friends about it, and that game gets over 100,000 plays in the next week-or-so.

People just post random shitty games because they can, if they couldn’t there would be any shitty games here.

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.
