Flag Post

We’ve announced that we were ending our tipping system back in November. Today was the first step, by removing the tip jar from the game tabs on all games. So you won’t see that section in the game tabs anymore. You can read our reasoning for doing so, and some replies to user comments in the original thread here.

We also have a few new default avatars for all of you. Here is what they look like:


You can read more about these changes below or in our change logs here.

omg those avatar looks better than 90% of the custom avatars.

Not really a fan of the removal of tips, and the points progress bar no longer affects me, but those default avatars are awesome.

Those new avatars look pretty good, definitely a very different style than the original ones though. I’m assuming that the old ones and these new ones are just going to combine to make a larger pool of default avatars, and that it’s not just going to be these from now on, yes?

Other than that, I’m curious about the change to the points bar thing, since I don’t think I’ll be able to see it myself on this account.


EDIT @below: Much obliged.

+1 to the avatars; many of the old default ones looked like what a 10 years old would draw…. while drunk! >_>

And -1 to the tipping thing, but you’ve already explained your reasons so… it’s ok, I guess.

Looks crappy to me:

Guess you didn’t test this for level 65 users.

The avatars look great, a definite improvement on the old ones. The level progress bar is nice too. Not so sure about the tipping idea though.

Amazing new avatars!

They definitely look better than any of my avatars. :P

These avatars are terrific. I think Kongregate should have more default avatars in this style.

Great avatars, but I fear we will get sick of them in the next <5 years.
