Interesting thoughts, but there are still issues with any system that can be put into place. If your proposed system comes into play, even if you take out referral points, there would still be the issue that people could lose levels over time, even if they’re earning points, simply because someone else is earning them faster. I feel that a fixed scale is better, as points should be something you get because you want to, not something you get to compare yourself to people ahead of you (which is what your relative scale would effectively become).

Besides, making a relative scale where 999 is regarded as where the top user is would be strange, since that would boost everyone’s level to be much higher than it is right now, basically making the system dysfunctional and hard to interpret.

I think more of a specified search engine for games would be great. Like many people, I play a lot of these games for the badges, but you can only search badges in a very broad genre. It would be nice if we could see which “point and click” games had badges, for example. Can’t it be a search option from the dropdown menu?

New badges are shown in the news feed on the front page.

  1. I didn’t read all 14,824 posts in this thread: I only skimmed the last page.
  2. I am sure this has been suggested before, but by suggesting it again, Kong can see there is more support for a feature like this.

The messages feature is too simple. I have been a Kong member for 4.5 years, so I have a lot of messages. At the very least, I would like an easy way to archive messages into different folders. There are tons of ways to improve the message center—just make it look more like other web-email systems, but if you only implemented one thing, then folders would be fantastic.

Thanks!

Ok, some suggestions. Don’t know if some actually already exist.

-Make a “play later” list (like the “watch later” on YouTube)

-Give users the possibility to create and share playlists of games

-Make the search box bigger, and more useful

-Put a link to all the games recently uploaded on the homepage (or is it me and i can’t find it?)

-Simplify the design of the site. Less is more.

-Give the possibility to organize tournaments or direct challenges also with non-mulyplayer games. You could challenge a friend, or a group of users, and see who achieves the highest score.

Hope this helped. Peace.

Increase the character limit of private messages. 2000 characters is really short, and it’s rather inconvenient when you have friends you communicate with through private message.

I get that Kong is primarily a game-site, but I wish you guys would realize that not every user loves chat and that your other ways of communication are equally important for other kinds of crowds. Forums/PMs come across as less important, which is a shame.

I agree. The 2k character limit is annoying and (seemingly) pointless. It’s an inconvenience for users (having to break up messages is annyoing) and if anything, increases server load by having to send multiple messages.

good idea, it improving the chat like being able to keep it on all the page of Kongregate. A private feature could also be useful.

Once upon a time, for badges which took a long time, their descriptions called them an ENDURANCE BADGE, for tasks which were more time-consuming than they were challenging. One impossible was even called a SUPER ENDURANCE BADGE, for a tasks which was more time-consuming than it was impossibly difficult.

These days, endurance badges still exist, but they aren’t called that. Instead, we’re just left with a perfectly ordinary badge that just happens to take forever to do. Can we bring back the endurance tag/description?

 
Flag Post

The endurance description didn’t change the nature of the badges in any way. They were still worth the same amount of points—using your words, they were still “ordinary badges”.

I imagine that the reason the endurance descriptions have been phased out is because the term “endurance” is subjective—what one person considers endurance might not be considered that way by another person.

Sure, length is (for the most part) not subjective, but “endurance” carries a connotation of being monotonous, boring, and not fun. There are many games (including some of those that received the aforementioned endurance descriptions) that some people consider fun despite the fact that they are rather lengthy.

Let’s face it: no matter which way you look at it, the two hard badges in Papa’s Pizzeria screamed for that endurance title.

Bonus five points for endurance badges.

Agreed. I’m not sure of the reason for the character limit, but it’s awfully annoying to have to break up messages into 2 or 3 pieces at times. I’d love for the limit to be removed, or at least (substantially) increased.

It would be cool to be able to search for games with badges based on Tags. Like I was in the mood to earn some badges but I wanted to play upgrade games.

I’d like this edit rule, 15 minutes to edit your game comment, unless someone has rated your comment.

And, once you finish editing your comment, it updates the time stamp and deletes your old post, and reposts the comment with the new time. (so it appears above newer comments during those 15 minutes)

Kongregate forums, and game comment sections, should be programmed well enough to combine multiple comments / posts into 1, as well.

Especially if someone makes 2 in a row.

I hope this fits here, but I just wanted to throw my support behind the development of more downloadable games, I really like the idea. The current crop doesn’t suit my tastes, but I still want to show my support for the idea. Thank you and as always good job with your work on the site, I love it here. :)

With the puzzle platformers, there’s at least some variation and gameplay. There is nothing in the MMOs.
