Kongregate has just added a new feature called ‘Kreds’. These have a money value, and can be donated to developers, or a few other uses.

What are these other uses?

How much is 1 Kred worth to a developer?

What is the communitys thoughts on these ‘Kreds’?

What is the communitys thoughts on these ‘Kreds’?

The fact that there is this huge:
“You have not supported your favorite games yet :(.”

On my profile downright annoys me. I feel alienated against for not being willing to spend real money on flash games. I understand the concepts of encouraging users to support developers by purchasing Kreds, but placing such an EYESORE on our profiles is wrong.

I have to agree with Kyru, I do not plan on buying “kreds”, therefore that section is rendered useless and just annoys me ever so much.

I don’t think this is what people meant when they said “I want to be able to spend my points”.

The fact that there is this huge:
“You have not supported your favorite games yet :(.”

That also really annoys me. =/

I don’t want that on my profile.

My overall reaction: What the hell?

Ability to hide that, similar to what can be done with Tickets would be nice.

And I can not even find the place to buy these Kreds on my profile…

Yep. I’d have to agree with Nick’s agreement.

Point taken Kyru & Nick. To be clear, that’s only visible on your own profile. We’re not trying to make you look bad to other people.

Still not going to help Kyru..

EDIT: Yeah, I can totally still see Kyru’s.

I just noticed that.

I can’t find that button on my profile though.

So the reason that I can see Nick’s eyesore is…?

“ItBeNickYo has not added any supported games yet.”

EDIT: I proved Jimgreer wrong. EPIC 666th post!

I see that Kyru has not supported any games on his profile…

Also, showing which games people support cancels out “Anonymous donating”.

Oh good. That makes a difference. The glaring accusation made me feel crummy. =/

To buy:

US$5 = 50 creds.
US$10 = 110 creds.
US$20 = 225 creds.

Unsure how much it’s worth to the actual developer when cashing out. Also the addition of the second ad on game pages will help boost developer (& Kongregate) income. Pretty good update for developers. I’m still keen to see how Kreds will be used when buying premium items, I just hope its good enough to provide incentive without disadvantaging the players who wish to play free.

(Way to totally screw up your 666 post, Kyru.)

On topic, I still feel guilt tripped.

Actually it looks like we messed up – other people do see that. That was a mistake, we’ll fix it.

Actually, it’s supposed to be hidden unless you’ve donated to a game. That slipped through, we’ll fix it as soon as we can. It’s not meant to be some peer pressure thing.

I don’t know what the problem is. But when I wake up tomorrow- It better be FIXED.

For those who don’t get it: Watch more SNL.

No way am I spending $5, that would totally buy me some subway.
