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

Meaning, more spreading the word.

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

Wat.

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.

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.

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.

Might be necessary for some people. Although you can just turn off your computer volume. In case you’re listening to music , oh well, it could be useful indeed.

when filtering badges, need to be able to sort by game type.

one (poor) example:
Show: Unearned Sort: By game type
[new dropdown box here with all types of games in ascending order]

We should be able to comment on other comments in the comments section on games, like on user profiles.

1) Move “Recent Posts” and “Monitored Topics” to a more visible place. Instead of being at the very bottom of the forums page they should be near the top just below the title “Kongregate Forums”.

2) Please redo the “My comments” page. It is really ugly.

i, like many others, just want to see some change in the way the rating system works so we don’t have to go digging through the lists or wait forever for a miracle and see for only a few days, a new game in the highest rating range and otherwise always see the exact same games day after day, month after month, year after year, etc. long LONG after we may’ve beaten it well beyond submission.

The top rated games sorted by newest shows what you seem to want, which is a list of highly rated games that shows them sorted by release date, so you can easily find many newer ones as they come out.

Can you exclude hard badges on typing games from botd pool? They are extremely frustrating for foreigners.

A suggestion I have is that if multiple people report someone but they don’t get screen shots then the “goverment of the website” ban them.

P.s thank you for listening to my first post. And now the second.

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