Idea from the tip jar thread: why not have an on-site zazzle store? Convert the prices to kreds and Kongregate can convert the kreds to USD, place the order on the user’s behalf and it’ll be shipped directly to the user. Besides in-game content (which some people seem to be entirely against) it’s a good use for kreds. It puts money back into Kongregate (which logically would take a small commission) and gives the user a use for their kreds.

If that happened, that’d be a pretty cool thing, and it’d definitely make me want to invest a little more into Kreds, or actually do something more with what I have. Then again, it’s the whole argument of how Kreds could be laundered into the real world, since you can get them for free and then convert them into some real merchandise, but I don’t know how major that would be.

It’s very difficult to get a substantial amount of kreds for free and, well… zazzle isn’t cheap so the amount of kreds required to purchase merchandise would be in the high hundreds or thousands.

It’s not overly difficult to get that many if you try hard enough, and if they continue giving out 5-10 Kreds for challenges and watching videos over the next while it can add up. A shirt would be roughly 300 Kreds (at the current exchange rate), which is really not that many nor that hard to get if you’re diligent enough, and it’s not like people are going to be going for a shirt a day, but it’d be possible to get one every couple months if you did all of the offers. I’m not saying it’s never going to happen or shouldn’t happen, just that it is possible to get it through free Kreds (from Kongregate offers or advertiser offers), and I’m not sure how that would affect anything.

Feature of sorting friends and fans:
– alphabetically
– last added
– recently signed in

Alphabetically is something I think would definitely be cool, and I know is possible since it’s a feature on mobile (along with sorting by their levels, which is also something that’d be interesting to see on the main site). Last added is somewhat already there, it shows them in the order added except whoever is online is put ahead of whoever isn’t, and then they’re sorted by last added in both online and offline. Recently signed in would be something new (as far as I know), but I could see that being useful for sure (like if you’re looking to clean your friends list a bit and want to see if there are people who haven’t been on in a long time).

Exactly, sorting by level also is good idea. :) And I wrote about sorting by last added, that admins don’t forget about this. And of course every option of sorting could be ascending and descending.

When we leave comments in games can you plz change the “Comment” icon color. It looks bit like facebook, and i feel like whenever i am going to hit comment, it will go to facebook and i dont want that.

I wish there’s a way to store avatars you earned from games so that you don’t have to play some of them again if you cleared cookies on accident or if you change avies back and forth

You can click and drag them onto your desktop.

I think it would be a good idea for Kongregate to make a chatting app integrated through Kongregate, so users could talk to community members in rooms such as Ant hill and other chatrooms. It would be a great idea.

Please add a refresh button to list of a game’s forum posts so players don’t need to open a new tab/window or refresh the current game. Something like this

Do you mean a standalone chat? I think there are some games out there which essentially are just chat and a blank screen for a game which do a decent job, or you could open a new browser window and position it beside your other one (so you could have the chat on the side and whatever else on the rest of your screen).

You could just open the forums themselves in a new tab, it’s what I often do anyways, since it’s a lot more convenient to be able to see all of the threads together the just the few there, and it means you don’t need to scroll the game page a bunch whenever you want to see the posts (I find it annoying to get it away from the spot I like a game’s window to be positioned at).

It would be nice if monitored posts were more efficient to use and watched posts easier to manage.

1 Maybe Kong Clans so you can make your own little groups of friend and you could possible have your own chat room for your clan. You would have to pay say 200 kreds for it to be permanent on for your clan.
2 A kong market for selling and trading accounts say you have an acc you want to sell for hmm 20$. Kong mods and admins maybe other people would figure out the price you would sell it for. the factors would be like how many badges do you have and what level you are. maybe how many fans you have and the level you are on multiplayer game or how good that acc is on them.

1. Sounds elitist.

2. Why? All those fans, would they know that the person that they friended is no longer the person they thought they were?

It was suggested only once (to the best of my searching capability) back in 2008, but a Game Queue or To-Play List would be a great feature. Just as ToasterBot pointed out in his post, I’m finding myself coming across tons of games that I think look good, but I either don’t want to play right then or don’t have time to play. I generally open them up in another tab and add them to “favorites”, but this is a poor method of tagging games that I haven’t played before.

A Game Queue would be a simple fix to this, kind of like an Amazon Wish List lol. It’s functionality would be almost identical to the favorites function, but it would keep the games I haven’t played from getting mingled in with the ones I consider my actual “favorites.”

Sorry for mostly just repeating what ToasterBot said, but it’s been 5 years, so I don’t think it’s a big deal to re-post at this point.

I think the hability to pick unlocked avatars would be awesome, I mean this animal spanking was nice, got the duck, then refused the 2nd and puff… no more showed and if I try to change I’ll have to get to scratch… meh… unlockable avatars should be like awards to stay (I mean its in your database anyway aren’t they lol)

Well, it will probably make you very happy to hear that this has been added last month.

For K+ member, when we change the Profile skin with the new art, can you make it so its reflected throughout the website, not just the profile.

That’s a lot more work for a simple cosmetic benefit.

As someone who likes to earn badges, I think there should be an icon in the corner of a game or something that shows if the game has badges. Also, I think it’ll be great if there was a section like the “hot new games” and “recommended” that showed “new badges”.

There’s /badges and it’s in reverse chronological order.

The point of profile skins is for you to be able to choose something that everyone will see, what you’re asking for is essentially a way to make something appear for just you. If that’s the case, you really just need to go find an add-on or make one yourself to replace the background of the site with whatever it is you want (I’m sure there’s some HTML you could edit or something in the CSS).
