I think we should be able to delete our own games.

Just email support@kongregate.com and the will unpublish them, that way you keep revenue earned. And from there you can delete them but you will lose revenue.

I guess this is a suggestion:

For an extra fee, be able to add a custom message or one’s username onto the back of the Kongregate T-Shirts. I would buy one of those right away.

I think you should be able to sign up before you’re 13, but you just won’t be able to post in the forums or chat in the chat.

That’s an interesting idea that I’d thought of before, basically if someone tries to sign up with a birthday showing them being under 13, then they still get the chat interface that guests see, and likewise with the forums. That way, users could still earn achievements, and start to chat later on. Legally, I can’t see a huge issue, since underage users are currently banned, but they can still play on the site, this would just allow them to have an account but be like a guest for the social aspects (which are the reasons that users must be 13).


EDIT @below: Point taken, but then there could easily be a change to the signup process (easy in the sense that it’s just moving something without needing to add a bunch of separate checks). Since you’re not required to activate your account via email, that could be made a post-signup operation. For example, if I were to sign up an account right now, it would ask for my username, password, and date of birth, and then it would create my account. After that, since I’m above 13 I’ll have the option to add my email in the account preferences, as well as do every other social aspect. If someone who signs up under the age of 13 tries to do this, then they will not be allowed to do so. Effectively, this allows for signup to be possible at any age, but then a check is made to see if you’re 13 or above in order to edit or add any personal information.

Legally, the issue is that sites may not collect personal information from children under 13. This includes e-mail addresses, which are required for Kongregate registration (and false addresses don’t get you off the hook).

I don’t know if this exists, but if it doesn’t, I’d like a way to see a history of every game I’ve ever played on kong, that way I could find games I played a long time ago but did not favorite.

Is this what you want?

That only goes back a max of 60 pages. Also, it seems a little glitchy – it has me playing Paladog 60 pages ago (as the last entry, which I feel is probably significant to the glitch), and not only have I only played it once, for the BotD a few days ago, I’m not entirely certain it was out at that point. Hard to tell.

Cloud saves!

Flash game saves are only a couple kb so it wouldn’t take up much memory right? If kong had some sort of API people could put in their games where it would back up users saves to kongregate servers that would be amazing. You would be able to access all your game saves just by logging into your account. You can pick up where you left off on any computer and keep your data if your HDD fails.

I just looked at my chat.Kongregate.com folder, and the size it takes on my disk is apparently 21.4 MB. If that were to be taken as an average for every account created (roughly 8,600,000 as of this post) for necessary space, then that would require about 175 TB of storage. I’m not going to comment on the practicality of this, as the userbase is constantly increasing, and so are the number of games, so this amount will only increase over time (again, it’s not a case of me having more data than someone else per se, but rather is I need that much then everyone else should also have the same max amount, so my numbers are based off of that).

However, if it were a Kong+ feature, then that’d be something interesting, but then again, it would require the recoding of every game on the site for them to work with it, and that’s just not feasible. And you should backup your data anyways, so you shouldn’t have to be too worried about a crash.


EDIT:

Which is why I said that it’s not a case of me having more, but a case that everyone should be allotted the same amount, as it’s unfair to give any one user more space than another.

We should change the title on the homepage to Gregregate, just for one day. August 3.
Come on, it’s it here, but Kongregate time still has 2 more hours!

Would it be possible to have locked threads automatically moved to the second page? In OT for example, threads are often locked due to the nature of the forum, and the first page, at times, is cluttered with these threads.

Probably not, the threads are sorted in order of which was posted in recently

I can’t edit or delete my game comments? What a downer. Please, make editing and deleting possible. It sucks when I post a comment and notice some wrong typing and realize I can’t delete that comment…

You can delete them here but you can not edit them.

I think there should be a “random game” button. A lot of sites have one.

There’s a badge generator, that takes you to a random game with a badge
