Win a contest where it’s a prize, have someone gift it to you or become a moderator. [Edit: no custom skins.]

if that were true, then Kong would bill it as such – but there is nothing on the K+ pop-up that suggests that at all – everything described on that page is user feature/facing. if it was primarily aboot supporting kongregate, then it would/should be up to the user to decide how much they want to pay to support, from $5 to $100.

also, Rolby, if you can obtain a PUP with Gamestop, you can get free K+

But Kongregate is also a business and that’s not how businesses work.

By your logic, every gas station you go to, you support and therefore you can pay whatever amount per gallon you want! Just by spending money there, you’re supporting them so the amount you spend doesn’t matter.

Also, Rolby isn’t American.

you don’t necessarily have to be american to get PUP ;)

i’m not really sure what you’re getting at, adv0… even still, it’s not the same thing at all. goods & gas prices tend to be consistent and vary very little between different gas stations. my supporting of them is only by my transacting at a particular gas station to do business.

Grocery stores, ISPs, carriers. The analogy can apply to any of them.

While thats true, it’s very unlikely. Only if you lived very close to the border is that remotely realistic.

PUP gives you free Kong +. Well technically you are paying for it when you buy the membership, its just included. And you get game informer magazine. I love the PUP benefits.

Adv0, I think you misunderstand. If the primary purpose is to support kongregate (ie: a donation), then there is no reason that kongregate would put a fixed price on that (talking purely aboot supporting kongregate). The only reason one might put a minimum price on that, is if the donation is accompanied by some kind of perks/features. At which point, the donation could easily be the value of the perks + whatever the user wants. Remember the tip jar? That was “supporting a developer”. It didn’t equate to some value, the user could tip whatever they felt was appropriate. Homeless person the streets? 50 cents, 2 dollars… whatever you want.

That said, there are a fair (and growing) number of “pay what you want” schemes out there – and some of them accept $0 as a minimum, and some of them set minimum prices.

I really like it. Has alot of features.
Plus, $29.99 a year is a great price!

I think it’s be neat if we could have @kongregate.com email addresses, as part of K+. If/When our subscription expires, the email account would stay active for ~2 weeks (seems reasonable to me?) then all data will be deleted.

Oh, I forgot to mention. It’d simply be our username, so I’d be adv0catus@kongregate.com, for example.

 
Flag Post

I think having an @kongregate.com e-mail address would potentially confuse some people and would lead them to think that you worked for Kongregate.

Possibly, but it would depend on how it’s marketed/advertised. If it’s done properly, there shouldn’t be much/any confusion.

What’s the purpose and/or benefits? Wouldn’t it sorta be like our profile private messages?

Right now they’re used by administrators (ex., Z uses zachary@Kongregate.com, as said on his profile), so they’re all known to be administrator-only addresses, and changing that might cause confusion, or open a temporary window for potential abuse. I feel that it would be cool to have them, but also they should remain for employees (I don’t think GameStop PUR Pro members get @GameStop email addresses, nor do many, if any other subscribers of other sites like Kong).

^ I know, that’s why I was saying it’d need to be positioned properly.

Same purpose/benefits as other K+ features, I suppose. Just something extra, a personalized email, maybe to use for your Kong account(s).

I don’t get what Terence is asking… What does this have to do with the mobile site?

Oh, I see…

Quick question. So I didn’t pay for Kong Plus, but apparently I have it. Why is that?

You probably have a Powerup rewards pro account and linked it to Kongregate. K+ is included with that purchase.

A suggestion regarding Kong+

I’m one of those people who are rather… obsessed with perfection. And every time I change my profile skin to match with my avatar, there’s one thing that remains unchanged and which may not match with the colors you decided to have; The upper red navigation bar (where Kongregate logo and navigation menu is)

So I’d like to suggest that all K+ users should have an ability to change the color of that bar as well, as well as menu buttons and navigation sub-menus. It’s nothing more but aesthetic change.

Or you could, implement a cloud storage for your flash game files (for K+ users, naturally)

Since Maik brought up the profile-skin-matching-the-avatar topic again, I figure I’ll throw this suggestion back out:

Originally posted by DarkRainyKnight:

Simple, solid walls of different colors for K+ skins.
Basically, at least, 9 skins each with just a plain color.
Blue, red, green, yellow, orange, purple, pink, brown, and black, maybe?
Skins available to match your avatar with.
Minimal effort required.
More K+ skins.
Win for all.
