Not too many changes you can see with this release. We created a new game category, removed some links from the game pages and also added a kreds link in the quick launch bar for kreds games. You can read about those below or in our change logs here.

    Thanks :D

    Edit: If it’s chat ad free, then what’s this?

    Pan to the right on the image to see what Samster was referring to. Not the game. The actual chat to the right of the game.

    It’s unfortunate that the fix for the bug where clicking on my user name no longer pulls up my profile (requiring me to navigate down in the menu to “Full Profile” or left on the bar to the much smaller avatar) wasn’t fixed in this update. I was under the impression, through prior communication with the support on this site, that the cause of this bug had already been nailed down so I was hoping the fix was already in the pipeline.

    Not being able to click on your username to go to your profile page was a feature we put in with the last deploy. Is that not working for you?

    I think he thought that Kongregate would reimplement clicking your name to go to your profile because many users wanted it back and it seemed more logical UI-wise than the current situation (so much so that he thought it was a bug).


    Recently popular games is cool – how’s it calculated?

    No new profile skins. Sadface. I was looking forward to putting sushi on my profile.

    I’d hazard a guess at it taking so long because they included more winners than they intended on in the first place, so it’s taking longer to assemble all of the pieces correctly and get them smoothed out to work properly.


    Nice little updates nonetheless, it’s nice to see the little changes coming out periodically.

    You forgot to mention the fix for big threads where you couldn’t delete your posts. And thanks a lot for that.

    Yup, they are my two favourites. I still think Kongman should’ve won :P

    You can request that points be deducted from your account.

    So I take it Kong’s new strategy is, instead of offering users cool things, to simply annoy us until we buy K+?

    It isn’t. I have to navigate directly to the “Full Profile” option in the menu that appears when I hover over my user name and click on it in order to access my profile instead of just being able to click on that user name. It’s, admittedly, not a huge deal but it adds a small amount of inconvenience and removes a large amount of intuitiveness (especially since it’s the only section of the entire header that doesn’t respond to a click).

    If it means digging through mounds of code, it’s probably not worth it, but I understood that the underlying problem causing this error had been identified, so I was assuming (hoping) it’d get fixed soon. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

    It’s not an error. The ability to access your profile by clicking on your username was intentionally removed, and (as far as anyone knows) isn’t going to come back. Instead, you can now access your profile by clicking your avatar. Again, there’s no “bug” or “error”, and there’s nothing to “fix”.
