What does this mean for me? You will always be able to play your favorite games on Kongregate. However, certain site features may suddenly stop working and leave you with a severely degraded experience.
What should I do? We strongly urge all our users to upgrade to modern browsers for a better experience and improved security.

I don’t know about you but Gamegum seems to have borrowed a lot of ideas from Kongregate in terms of style/design as well as features. I spent a little time browsing the site and didn’t really see anything special except for the PM system. Anyways what do you guys think about it? I’m especially interested in hearing what Jim has to say.
Its similiar, some of the design I dont like; other features I wish we had. Some items are going to be inherently similiar unfortunately.

Actually, they’ve been around since before we launched though we didn’t hear about them until after. I’ve definitely seen some things (like the front page leaderboards) that were on our site get picked up on their site, but since we’ve been, shall we say, “inspired” by features on other sites ourselves, I don’t have a problem with that. Part of the continuing improvement in websites, games, consumer electronics, and just about everything else is people seeing features and mechanics that work well, and then incorporating them into their own work and raising the level as a whole.
