This is kind of picky…but when I visit my profile the “Change image” box cuts off the bottom portion of the Avatar. I know only I can see it…but it makes it difficult to see how it will look to others. Like I said…picky.

That’s also irked me for quite some time too. I’d suggest that it only show up when you hover over your own avatar, if possible.

When you try to change chat room, it currently lists the rooms.

Clicking “# of users” should sort them so that the busiest rooms are at the top of the list.
Choosing “Room name” would sort them back to alphabetical order.

Alright, I have my own suggestion, because it’s something that’s been in the back of my mind for a while now. Whenever you quote someone in the forums, it sets the cursor to be in front of the quote, when it really should be set to after the quote (I believe that it used to automatically do this, but stopped at some point a while ago), so I’d like if it set it to the end again.

Can you spend “hundreds of euros” on a Paysafe card in Germany? Only asking because of this…

Since Germany has a new ratification against money laundry, it is no longer possible to obtain prepaid cards > €50 and PaySafe was forced not to allow stacking cards, thus making it impossible to pay $100 in one payment (and receive the bonus kreds).
Not complaining, just saying ;)

Hi there! Anyone remember those official Kong downloadable games from a few months ago? No? Didn’t think so. But anyway! They’re not the purpose of this post.

See, when those games were downloaded, they came with a small little program called “Kongregate Client”. This program’s only purpose was to log into Kong so the downloadable games could put what you do on your account. I’d like to see an added feature for the Client: a stand-alone chat window so that someone can chat without having to deal with browsers and whatnot.

True, this would have almost no purpose whatsoever. But I, among others, think it would be a neat thing. Please consider implementing this.

(Credit goes to TLTTP for the original idea.)

What i think kongregate should do is upgrade their site, because it just looks so basic compared to other sites. Heck, i could probably make a webpage in Dreamweaver that’s just as good if i take the time

Thing is they do, but each time it takes time and money and people end up hating it.

Plus their is something to be said about keeping it simple and not over doing it with features that just make it look cool without providing much in the way of functionality. And like uuu2 pointed out, people need to be eased into change. A massive overhaul of the site could be devastating.

There are two search tools that I’d love to see; I checked and each of them has been suggested before, but they seem to have “fallen off the forum” and I’m not sure whether they are under consideration.

First, since I’m a goal-obsessed gamer (as I suspect many on this site are), I want to identify then complete the games that have badges or are part of a quest before the “non-badged” games. Could you add an optional filter for “Only Games with Achievements” that could accompany a global, category or keyword search?

Also, there are a few broad categories of games in which I have no interest. For example, I just don’t enjoy multiplayer games and want to decompress on my sofa like a hermit when I play. I would love the ability to exclude “Multiplayer” tagged games anytime I run a search.

It seems like these issues and several other search-based suggestions above could be resolved by adopting a Boolean search model. Of course, it’s easy for me to tell you to throw out your current search engine and “just replace it” and I understand there’s more to it than that. :-) But I appreciate your consideration of these recommendations and how they could be adopted with the least amount of development pain.

When I search for a type of game, like “platform games”, I would like an option to not see the games I’ve already played (rated).

And like the post above, I’d like an additional option not to see games without badges.

Really you should just have an extended search feature where you can check off anything that you’re interested in seeing. Maybe I want to see all games with platforms, shooters, action…..games I haven’t played…Games with badges…Games with x number of stars….and you can even use random tags to see games with dinosaurs or robots or whatever.

I want to run some promotions with Kongregate and the game developers. I am part of a large entertainment company in the UK and run their Gaming Arena.
If someone could get back to me, that would be great.

Thanks

I think you could try using the Contact Us page and selecting “Advertising Inquiry” or “Media Inquiry” from the dropdown, or just send an email to support@Kongregate.com about it.

I would like hatemakinggames’s suggestion implemented.

Instead of deleting a thread and making a new in a different forum, there should be a “move topic” button and have options of which forum to switch it to. Just a suggestion..

This is a tool that forum mods have, if you really want a thread to be moved you can ask one of them to do so (I’m sure they’d be glad to have it placed in the proper location).

Here’s an idea: implement a way to track the comments of certain players who you rate as reliable. For instance, I like player ‘x’, hes got similar taste to myself, and he plays a lot of games. His comments appear on a certain page, so that I can read them before I try a game…even sort through them to find games based on his comments. You could further reward these players with badge points or kreds or something, based on the ratings other players give their comments on games. A sort of critics circle, based on player responses and feedback.

That’s really not the same thing, though I appreciate it!

Suggestion: Filter the word Hi, hey, wassup, sup, hola, and any other greeting from comments. It’s getting annoying with all these noobs just spamming the comments like it’s a shout box.

People read those things? I only read the top rated ones sometimes.

Anyway ignore or down vote, not too tricky to do. :)

I think they should add a system to the chat, lets say some one is cursing and there are no MODs around all that has to happen is the people in that chat room have to vote to silence him for like an hour. Lets say like 20 votes can remove some one from the chat.

That could easily be abused, since it’s possible to log onto multiple accounts and be in chat with them at the same time. If no mod is around, you can report them on their profile.


EDIT @below: Actually, screenshot proof doesn’t matter, and is often not trusted anyways, since they can be edited to show something that didn’t actually happen, and since the admins reviewing the reports have access to the chat logs, so they’ll be able to see what was said anyways.

I think its possible as 1234aaa789 said, to report individual users on their profiles.
Although it could be a hassle because you have to wait ’till it gets reviewed, it still works.

Nonetheless, if you dislike the language, you should just take a screenshot (for evidence), mute the person, report them, and your problem is solved.

I have a question, do the chat rooms combine users of the same types of games?

If you are going to have fewer chat rooms, maybe it would be wise to match chat rooms to the same types of games so more like minded people meet each other.

Segregate the chatting populations by game tags so like minded people meet. (people chatting about RPGs meet others who chat about adventure games, try to get people with similar tastes together, so they move from new game to new game)

Then load balance the tags so about an even distribution of chatters populate each.

I think it might also be good to have a mini chat room built into the Title/Rate/Views/Instructions/Updates pane for every game. So a chat room is always present. (remove user list, smaller text list, one line height text entry. This is not to remove the fulll chat room, just to have even a tiny chat built into all panes)
