That was actually the intended thing (names appeared when hovering over), but it was accidentally removed quite some time ago (I believe it was an accident, at least). I’m not sure if/when it’d be brought back, but it’s definitely on their radar.

Suggestion: I am not sure if this has been said already, but can kong stop putting any decent or prospective multiplayers for beta testing. It generally deters new players willing to pay for these type of games. I am looking at chaos rage right now and Im thinking how few plays it has, I got turned off it completely. Beta players got such an advantage + cash shop that new players have a hard time to catch up with. And sword and potion 2, jesus that 2 months of advantage they had was huge. Customer was easier to level via city quest, and gold was easier to make before the nerf. If it does continue with this process, any future multiplayer game is going to have a harder time to gain success just so that kong can earn more revenue via kong+. Making a server 2 shortly after beta wouldnt solve the problem either as s1 player would just flock to s2 to gain early bird advantage, so s1 will be ghost town and soon enough it will merge again to save cost.

Darn, that sucks. It’d be a cool thing to have on here! :)

So what you’re saying is that they should make beta testing for non-K+ members too?

Is there a list anywhere of all the people you have muted? Because if there isn’t it would be really super if there was.

Users and games you’ve muted/blocked.

I feel like we need more sticky threads that cant ever be deleted that more users should know about and are really popular and great threads. Heres some threads that I think should be stickied.

That’s way too many threads to sticky (there are forums on here that have that many or more, but it’s just excessive, especially for the main forum). You have to remember, for every thread that’s stickied, that’s one else spot for new threads to be shown on the front page (which is arguably the only page that a large amount of people look at). Just because a thread is popular doesn’t necessarily mean it needs to be a sticky, since those are reserved for the more important ones.

They do occasionally add or take away stickies (the beta games thread was taken, and the daily updates was added), but for threads like those, I don’t see the benefits. Heck, most are already posted in a stickied thread here and here for easy access.

Pokemon Subforum request

I think that considering the sheer number of Pokemon fanatics within the target age range of Kongregate that making a subforum for Pokemon under Gaming would be a great idea. How Kongregate doesn’t already have one is beyond me but I’m absolutely certain that it’d be a very popular.

It’s a game, so if anything the discussion should just be held in General Gaming. It doesn’t need its own forum, since then you could say that any game franchise deserves its own, and then why not go to any movie or book franchise, it really just leads down a slippery path.

Just because something is poplar doesn’t mean it requires its own forum. There are other sites whose sole purposes are to host Pokemon discussions, so those would be the kinds of places to look, whereas Kongregate is a more general space where subdividing the forums doesn’t work as well (especially with non-site hosted games, it works easier when it’s for games hosted on Kongregate, and even then not all get them).

I honestly hate when people try to use those in situations that they don’t apply, because there’s always one that fits any given situation (and I’m not wrong in saying what I did, since people have and will continue to try to abuse anything which benefits any other group in order to benefit themselves, in this case it’s the fact that if fans of one game series get their wish, others will absolutely be asking for a forum for their favourite game series). That was not my main point, rather that it’s completely unnecessary to have a forum dedicated to something which Kongregate neither hosts nor sponsors nor is sponsored by, especially since there’s already General Gaming for the discussion of games (shocking, isn’t it), and many other sites where the discussion is welcomed.

Besides, you gave no reason whatsoever why the forum should exist other than that “it would be very popular,” which, you know, puts the burden of proof on you, and then if you go ahead and say something like “because it has so many sales and fans” will lead directly back to my point about how other games/movies/books would then warrant their own forums as well.

My request still stands, I would like a Pokemon series subforum.

No actually you are the one trying to use the Burden of Proof fallacy on me… I think you need to reread the descriptions.

I did read it, you’re the one that said, and I quote:

Please prove to me that it would be, and that it is the only game that absolutely would warrant its own forum, and prove that no other game would.


I’m done with the discussion, either way, since obviously I’ve given my input that it’s not necessary, and you’ve given your input to the contrary. Either way, this thread is for suggestions, not logical debates, if I wanted to partake in those I’d go to Serious Discussion, which I avoid for reasons such as this discussion has brought up (i.e., people throwing around logical fallacy claims as their only line of defense).


EDIT: Thank you for editing your post as I was typing mine out, well played.

EDIT2 @below: If you read through my post, you’d see that my first quote quotes what you originally said above this, however you edited it, and are now trying to claim that you did not, in fact, say what I have quoted you as saying.

I would love Kongregate offline, similar to Google Docs. Could preload the ads and games. I hear YouTube is doing it

To me it looked like YouTube was just allowing users to download videos and then watch them later when they might not have an internet connection (though oddly enough YouTube used to allow videos to be preloaded, but due to some protocol change they no longer do by default), and Kongregate somewhat has that ability with a select amount of games here (you’re allowed to download those games to add them to any site, so I’d assume you’d also be allowed to just download them for future play offline as well).

Alternatively, you could actually play (almost) any Kongregate game offline anyways by directly accessing the .swf location (for example, Blosics 2 which I just was able to play without being connected to the internet). Also makes for some great full-screen action too (useful for some games like Transformice where you can suddenly see more of the gameplay area).

You can pretty much do that by clicking “Cinematic Mode” at the top of the game screen.

For the badge of the day I think that depending on how difficult it is for the badge there should be some kreds awarded with it (ie. an easy badge gives 1 kred, medium gives 3 and hard gives 5)

There are too many users that earn the Badge of the Day that it would be impractical to give Kreds for them, especially since Kreds are real money. Let’s assume that 10,000 people check-in and get the BotD, and maybe it’s just 1 Kred along with it, that’s still $1,000 each day that Kong would have to be paying out, it’s just not feasible (even if the number is lower, it just wouldn’t add up).

This is why Kongregate has so many trolls and alts. We need a Verify Email option so that whenever someone joins Kong, they need to go verify their email and join so that they can officially join Kong. We dont have any of that option so trolls are taking advantage and post fake emails and they get in right away.

Actually, people don’t need fake e-mails to make multiple accounts. Just ask anyone who has been permabanned dozens of times. Their e-mails aren’t banned.

Thats what I am saying, they should ban their emails too and not let them come back on with fake emails as well.
