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.

Logged on first thing this morning like I usually do to score the week's Kongpanion, but the usual bar on my account page that shows the week's games was absent -- I refreshed several times over the course of the next couple of hours, but there was no change. And then just a few moments ago, I noticed that the usual spot on the Kongregate home page's cycling banner that has the Kongpanion and the game of the day was an empty black, as though the asset that was supposed to load in wasn't present.
I doubt it's something on my end, since no cache issue or connection fault should cause such an exclusive absence of an asset -- the more likely explanation is that it's a problem on the host's side, but I haven't been able to find any announcements from the Kong admins about site trouble or the Kongpanions skipping a week or any such. Does anybody know what's going on?
[Edit:] Impeccable timing on my part, I suppose -- I checked again immediately after posting this, and found the Kongpanion systems up and running again. Whatever was going on seems like it was fixed, though if anybody knows what it was, I'm still curious.
