What does this mean for me? You will always be able to play your favorite games on Kongregate. However, certain site features may suddenly stop working and leave you with a severely degraded experience.
What should I do? We strongly urge all our users to upgrade to modern browsers for a better experience and improved security.
We suggest you install the latest version of one of these browsers:

someone must do something about these horrible games created by grouperfish an papercup.they are making this website look bad so someone must remove them!plz take them away.they are not even worth playing!
Wait? There’s garbage games out here? No wait, they’re buried under all other promoted games
Anyway, Kongregate is supposed to be mecca for all indie developers, that includes amateurs too and frankly said, Kongregate is unique for the feature that allows anyone to upload their first (and latter) games.
The good thing in this that any game may rise from its birth ashes and get a good rating. In sites like Newgrounds or Armorgames, not all developers even dare to submit their game which might have potential, not to mention qualification standards.
Just ignore the amateur games if you’d like (though, who’s going to give credit for them now if everyone would do so?) and pick out the promoted games kongretate staff and KongBot is picking for us, the players
And take a look at my first point. Garbage games are barely visible, especially when you consider how many good games there are to steal away attention from amateur games. Even if you found them, you cannot say kongregate sucks just because of them as there’s other _good_ games out there, which by the way, were new at one time

> Kongregate should steal NG’s blam system.
I agree with this.
A blam system would be so awesome.
Think of the benefits:
1. the average quality of game goes up
2. the community actually has a part in something on the site for the first time.
3. butthurt devs flocking to OT to complain about their bad games getting blammed.
But kong won’t do that because it would mean they wouldn’t be able to pimp out game making programs like Stencyl and then profit off of the influx of bad games.
amen I sent Kong a message dealing with this same issue, I’m not sure if they will look into it or not, I’m guessing it’s not against the rules but it makes other true real devs. look bad. Please stop with these troll spam games, it’s not funny anymore!
I agree with Darkruler.

You may not enjoy these games, but they’re valuable because they help the developer get experience and feedback. Taking it off would just discourage new talent, and that’s not right. Besides, some people might enjoy the games anyways.
Take my old games for example. I refined them and updated them, and they’re a lot better then they used to be. If they were taken down for not being awesome the moment it came out, then that’s unfair to everyone.

Well, if they had a section for beginner games looking for feedback (or other testing), then that would probably satisfy both sides (assuming people actually adhered to it).
