That’s epic! Thanks!

UPDATE:
I just realized screen shots can be edited… lol! I now understand why it is no proof… (I hope the right thing is done about him…)

P.S. About how long on average for something like this to get taken care of? or doesn’t this stuff get taken care of on the weekend…?

My apoligies if this has been said, but there should be a list of how many achievements a certain game has in the quick-search bar and/or the search results page.

Not sure if this has been said or not, but that sounds awesome. I’ve been hunting for achievements a lot lately. +1 Support.

Suggestion
1. Their could be different colours when you are PMing a friend like lets say viper300 is red and john24 is green, if you want you can change your friends colours from red to violet and make strips like blue and red.

2.Keeping tokens, you can have 1-3 or 1-4 and you can decide which one you want.

thank you for reading.

Sounds good, although changing the colour of your friends isn’t really necessary.

Just get rid of the minimum age of 13. It is making you lose many young players, and it is also useless since smart kids give wrong birth dates. To be honest, I was 12.5 years old when I became a member of Kongregate. (14 now)

It’s federal law.


A “lite” site version for slow internet connections would be fantastic.

1. I thought about the above Idea about changing the colors in chat… I think that it is nice that your own name shows up red in chat and everyone shows up as blue… I think it would be nice if all of your friends would show up as green or something… just one other separate color for friends in the chat… I think it isn’t really necessary though.

2. I think it would be cool if Kongregate would have a site clock of some sort… It really doesn’t matter to me what time zone it would be based off of… But I think it would make it easier than saying your time zone when you report someone ect… I also hate when someone says “I’ll be back at 2” or something cause they don’t realize not everybody is in their time zone…

Something like a /kongtime command to get the server’s time? That could be useful.

Just a suggestion I know I would enjoy more TD!

Developers upload games to Kongregate themselves, Kongregate doesn’t go out and get games themselves (though I believe they have asked developers to upload specific games before). If you’re a fan of some of those games, you could try emailing the developers to ask them about uploading them here.

Exactly! Maybe at the top of every kong page… Or maybe just at the top of the chat you are connected to. I think there should also be a “synchronize with server” button in case game lag screws the clock up a bit…

There’s already a list of badges or something, isn’t there?

Here you go.

that doesnt Allow you to search the games for small genres. Eg: badged helicopter games. And i dont plan on scrolling trhough 10+ pages to find one

There is an alternate choice here: http://www.kongregate.com/games/Senekis93/badge-master
(I don’t know how to just simply make the link say here… Does anyone know of somewhere that says how to do stuff like this in Kong forums? It was an accident that I figured out how to make bold text in the first place…)

Unfortunately, many people have proven unable to understand differences in timezones. I think Vegito_’s idea of an easily-accessible server time display could help people communicate and plan a bit better.

For example, players in different timezones could have the following exchange:

Player 1: Time for school. Meet back here at 4pm?
Player 2: Sure. Um, 4pm your time, or 4pm my time?
Player 1: My time.
Player 2: What time is that for me?
Player 1: Uhhh…

With a server time display:

Player 1: Time for school. Meet back here at 4pm Kong time?
Player 2: Sure.
[Player 2 intermittently checks /kongtime rather than doing any time conversions]

Allow us to REMOVE our FANS please.

I still don’t see a reason for this, why would you want to remove someone from being your fan? If they only have you added to annoy you, I feel that’s a legitimate enough reason to report them, and you can always mute them too (as long as it’s actually legitimate annoyance, for example, if you want to not have fans and people add you, that’s not grounds for a report, but if they’re following you around to annoy you, that might be). Maybe it’s because I don’t really care about who has me added so much as who I actually interact with while here (the majority of people who have added me have never said a word to me), but I don’t see why this is such a necessary thing.

@Vegito_, that’s simple.
You just type “here”: [insert link here]. This thread might help you out.

Thanks for the link! I’ll look at it tomorrow.

The coding stuff like that seems pretty simple on Kong…
[] = link… Using * like quotation marks makes bold text… and so on.

@SilverChannel & 123aaa789 Most of my fans are newbs/noobs that I helped out in Epic War Saga… I only started chatting this year and I have over 65 fans and 4 friends lol!

I thought a bit about best comments on each game. It seems to me this section doesn’t list best comments, but just above-average comments that were submitted at the correct time. Once a game gains popularity, recent comments are changed too often and can’t accumulate enough upvotes to become best. Meanwhile, best comments gather more and more upvotes, becoming too distant for any other comment.

This is especially well visible on badged games, e. g. see “Boomshine” for excellent example: I listed many pages in recent comments and couldn’t find anything over 20, while displayed best comments from the last week of December has 2899, 1191, 792, 1154, 410 upvotes.

I think many players would like to see really best comments on games with strategy tips, easter eggs and other useful stuff. I see two solutions for that:

“Proper” solution could be to rate comments relative to time instead of just counting upvotes. You know… ten upvotes in single day seems to be better than twenty upvotes in two months. This may be a bit challenging from database point of view.

Alternatively, you can simply turn off voting in the best comments section, so all comments battle on level ground. Each of them will have its time to prove its quality while it is in recent comments section. Will the game popularity make the difference now? Well… yes and no. Of course, when a game is popular, it gets comments faster, so each comment will have less real time to prove itself best. But also more people will read and rate comments, so there is still level ground on the most important thing – number of raters.

@123aaa798 I had a public profile; I switched it to private, and now I don’t want a social connection with anyone on Kongregate. I want to go for achievements and that’s it. You don’t account for things that have happened outside of this website and are outside of the report feature’s prerogative.

From a programmer’s perspective, I don’t see why this is so hard. Take the code used to add or remove yourself as someone’s fan and switch the parameters: you.removeFandom(PatPeter) to patpeter.removeFandom(you).

Doesn’t matter. A person added you likely because they liked you. How would you like it if you liked someone, and they rejected you? It’s the exact same thing.
