I have some Ideas to improve kong chat a bit.

These options should be found in the profiles section.
Auto Away Status: Kong bot will automatically set you to an away status for the set time that you want. (Ex. 5 Mins 15 mins 30 mins, 1 Hour)
Automatically Join Game Chat: Used for those who want to stay in their room chats while playing a multiplayer game. This can be used for people who may accidentally post something without switching back to the room chat.
Disable Chat: Will not show chat when playing a game. This is used for the sake of players who encounter lag when spammers hit.

Options to be used in the “chat actions” section
Search User: Searches user in the current chat room you are in
Private Message all friends: Will send out a private message to all users who are your friends in the current chat room you are in
Mute All: Self explanatory.
Mod Call: Will call a random mod who is online. Moderators will be able to accept or deny the call if they want to. If the mod doesn’t answer the call within 2 minutes it will automatically decline. After 3 mod attemps kongbot will send you a message saying “Mod Call Failed. Please go to (insert modfriend link here) to manually call a mod or try again.” Mods will have the option to opt out of this system.

That’s all I got really, the only other thing I can think of is that you should be able to send a PM to multiple people.

Try the AFK-command script, as it does exactly that.

Automatically Join Game Chat: Used for those who want to stay in their room chats while playing a multiplayer game. This can be used for people who may accidentally post something without switching back to the room chat.

I’m assuming you meant “automatically join room chat,” since it does auto-join game chat as is. I agree that there should be an option to have room chat as a higher priority than game chat.

Disable Chat: Will not show chat when playing a game. This is used for the sake of players who encounter lag when spammers hit.

Chat is automatically disabled when you join and don’t select the chat tab, so opening the game through a link that sets focus to a different tab, or just opening two games and closing the second once the first becomes disconnected from chat, will keep you disconnected from chat.

Search User: Searches user in the current chat room you are in

You can do that with the regular browser search functions (control + f).

Private Message all friends: Will send out a private message to all users who are your friends in the current chat room you are in

That’s technically possible with the use of Kong+ private rooms, since they’re just group whispers.

Mute All: Self explanatory

Seems like this could be solved by simply disconnecting yourself from chat, or switching to a different tab (like the game or high scores tab). Also, I believe that there’s a limit to how many people you can mute/block, so you’d quickly hit that if you did a “mute all” too often.

Mod Call: Will call a random mod who is online. Moderators will be able to accept or deny the call if they want to. If the mod doesn’t answer the call within 2 minutes it will automatically decline. After 3 mod attemps kongbot will send you a message saying “Mod Call Failed. Please go to (insert modfriend link here) to manually call a mod or try again.” Mods will have the option to opt out of this system.

With the addition of room mods, they’re trying to make modcalls a thing of the past (since room mods are hopefully going to cover a larger span of rooms, and since they usually can’t answer modcalls unless they’re also a mod for that room). That being said, it’s relatively easy to find a global mod online who can help.

How about when we get on Kong, we can always see when exactly the last message was, like put a time next to what someone said so you can know when that person said it and then if chat is quiet you can see how long its been quiet for.

There’s actually a script for that, not sure if it still works though.

I can confirm that the in-chat timestamp script works, not sure if the mouseover timestamp one does (it’s not included in KongOne because it wasn’t working at the time). The problem is that it doesn’t exactly tell you the time of the last message, but rather the time you got in the room, so a message could be sent at 12:00, you get in the room at 12:01, and the script will say it was at 12:01 (as far as I’ve seen, from switching games and seeing a message reappear when the new game loads, the time is different sometimes).

Still, the script is nice for if you go afk and come back, you can see how active the room was and at what times.

2 suggestions.

Threads you posted in
*Threads that you have posted in would have a small symbol by the the “Text Bubble” icon to show that you posted in that thread.

Toggle new reply notifications
*Being able to have a function to notify you if a user ever posts in your thread, or quotes one of your posts. You would also be able to toggle this function.

Just 2 small suggestions.

I think you should allow to sort games by which ones have achievements or not.

Well this thread looks EXTRA full and I am NOT scanning through all 626 pages (call me lazy but it seems a little excessive) I have one suggestion, a very good and easy to fix thing that would benefit all! Now on the front page, It shows you games, and little blurbs of the game that almost always end in “…” because the blurb is to big to fit into the window, now when I hover over the game, it would make sense to have the “blurb” describing the game to be at the bottom of the big window in full instead of just ending in … but alas, it is not there at all. I believe that everyone would benefit from being able to read a full description. I have passed by many games because all it said was “Using the keyboard help Mr Sush…” and had an indistinguishable blob for a title picture.

Didn’t used to be that way. The descriptions in the game hovers were taken out in This update.

Used to have one on the front page. They say it was removed due to lack of use.
But you can try This

A feature that would be awesome. A progress bar in badges. Per example, in a game you have to run 100m to get the badge. If you only ran 50 metres the progress bar in that badge would be half filled. There’s an example if this feature in TremorGames

An automatic thread updater, a tool to allow threads to be refreshed so new posts show in real-time, would be really nice. I know there are other ways of doing it, such as using the features in certain browsers, but it would still be cool to have the option.

“The world’s hardest game” should have impossible badge or hard badge which you get if you complete it.

Why not use Badge Master to see some impossible badges.. -JCL

There must be a COMPLETED sign when pointing on ACHIEVEMENTS tab when you complete Cards or Badge of the day so that i’ll never be confused.

I suggest timestamps for the chat, so you know how many time you’ve missed a message maybe???

There’s the In-Chat Timestamp script which shows what time messages were sent at, it works nicely since there isn’t an official one (and most likely won’t be, since most people probably don’t want/need it).

Dear Kongretate. Im hoping to get your attention regarding Call of Gods. I feel like the Call of God team on Kongregate is milking the players all they can for money compared to other sites that also have Call of Gods. I fear the only thing Call og Gods team is doing is trying out ways to milk more money from players that already have spendt several 1000$ dollar. All new content is designed to do exactly this. Isnt there some sort of site ethics they have to follow to have a game on kongregate? Right now i know about 1 player at level 130 (140 max) that has reached a barrier and cant move further in the game. I am pretty shure this player have spendt enough money to buy a new car. So I am asking you if this is how Kongregate want games to be on their site? In order to be able to reach the end content of a game you have to spend many 1000$? Is this healthy?

The administration views this thread, but they tend to not reply. If you want to contact them directly, e-mail support@kongregate.com.

As well, you posted in a public forum, so you shouldn’t be upset when undesired people reply. Secondly, you shouldn’t be rude just because someone gave you an answer you didn’t like. Thirdly, Kongregate has no obligation to do anything you said, so they’ll tell you exactly what I just said, but they’ll probably word it nicer.

Ah your one of those that know better. And have to comment everything with a smart and better answer. 6529 posts. Not much productive there i think. (One of your posts: Are you gay?, another your my 69 friend. ) Here we have a saying wich is tranlated to : Speach is silver but silence is gold.

Speach is silver but silence is gold.

So then speech, like silver, has more uses than silence, like gold. ;)

So in regard to your previous post you can think of it like a sporting type thing. There is no way I would spend $1000 dollars on anything related to sports, but that’s because I do not like them. Some people will because they do like that particular sport and have the means. In my perspective I could say it is a waste of money, but from their’s it is not, they can have a limit it though, sure it may be disappointing when you can’t really afford to go on but you can still enjoy where you are at. And there is always the option to walk away.
