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.

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.

 
Flag Post

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.
