I agree that the star system sucks. It’s really arbitrary. 5 and 1 star are kinda universal meaning, but what about the rest. What level of quality justifies a 3? What makes it a 3 and not a 4, or a 2?

Thumbs up and down would probably be best because its so cut and dry. You either like it or you don’t. It’s also be good for the recommendation system because it can automatically throw out all thumbs down.

However. The rating system would be gone, so a new criteria for badges would need to be made. Maybe ratio of good:bad?

Having more rating options is always better. What if I didn’t really like a game, but didn’t hate it, either? Would I give it a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down? Neither really expresses what I feel. I could just not rate, but that wouldn’t be helpful feedback to the game’s developer, nor would it give me my point for rating (which I assume would continue under this system). Currently, I’d give such games a rating of 3 (which is by far my most common rating).

There are already some people who follow this proposed system in principle, by only giving ratings of 1 and 5. But I don’t think the ability to give other ratings should be taken away from those of us who are more detailed about our preferences. If anything, I’d like to see the rating system expanded to a 1-10 star system rather than the current 1-5 star system.

Why not: Thumbs Down — Flat — Thumbs Up?

I rather like the idea of breaking up the rating system into multiple categories. For example: gameplay, graphics, sound and controls. A lots of times when rating a game it feels wrong to rate 3/5 because the controls or gameplay weren’t up to standards, but the rest was. It can also show the developers what most people did and did not like about the game. Just a suggestion.

You know I would prefer seeing something like on a certain forum engine. (Don’t want to advertise anything lol)

There would be 3 columns
1 : Topic name
2 : Status icon with whether there is anything new on it.
3: option to jump to the last post of the topic

Or something like this :
This would be a much more convenient way to handle them

It is just painful to see how it is handled at the moment – its not like I’m going to check through like the first 10 pages whether something new is posted on what I’m watching.

If you add a game to your favourites (under chat actions) you’ll always be placed there.

I’m not a frequent spender on kreds but if the ads that autoplay video with sound do not stop I will stop using this site.

If there’s any ads that are disruptive, deceptive or not working correctly, please contact support@kongregate.com with a screenshot so it can be looked into and fixed.

He’s talking about advertisements with sound, not necessarily corrupted/unqualifying ads. You can’t fix something that ain’t broken.

I personally have no problem with the ads (since they’re only like five seconds long before I can skip them), but you could always download AdBlock+.

If that’s the case, then it’s tough cookies.

All ads should be either skippable or mutable, though, so it still shouldn’t be an issue.

It would be an awesome idea if there was a special New Years deal for 2013 that kong+ can be 25$ a year instead of 30$ for a limited time.

You get 50 kreds, so it kinda sorta is. ;)

No, it has been suggested many times and admins can’t edit them and people will be able to put very rude things in it buffing the age requirement up.

My suggestion is for Kong staff to actually read this thread :P

Also for the ability to report shouts instead of PMing a mod

Someone has tried on another website and it became very glitchy.
Also Admins often check this thread its just that they don’t reply to this thread.

On top of that, sigs are the worst thing ever anyway. They are a waste of space. They have nothing to do with the posts you make. If you want to write something that defines you, write it in your profile.

They do.

I suggest, other than most viewed and most rated category, there should be a “most hours/time invested”

But how would they work it out? Would it be for all hours from everyone or just all hours from you?
