Topic: Kongregate / Hundreds of accounts got deleted on kongregate?

What would be the point of keeping inactive members if all they end up doing to eat up space and take name possibilities away.

I feel that everyone who has never gotten a badge and has not played in several years should have their account deleted.

Topic: Kongregate / Post Your Wins.

So I don’t know how much of a win this is, but I thought it was funny.

I apparently have more friends than I thought who like Zelda!

I shared a Zelda video on facebook and tagged a few friends in it. I’ll block their names but they are color coded so you know whose who (my name is Eric, so when you see the joke involving that name it’s about me, lol.)

Red: Me
Blue: Friend from High School
Brown: Friend who let me borrow his 3DS to play FS/OoT3D
Grey: Friend whose better than me at Mario Kart
Orange: Lifelong Friend
Pink: Best Friend
Black: Another High School Friend
Yellow: Some guy who didn’t comment
Green: My Zelda-hating Friend

Topic: Kongregate / How are Pockie Pirate and Pockie Ninja still on this site?

Originally posted by gluCROWse:

Also, since Pockie Pirate has an official Kong forum, its guaranteed badges because Kong sold out a long time ago. (thanks gamespot)

Wut? What does being bought by GameStop have anything to do with this?

Or is “thanks GameStop” still being used as the excuse for everything Konregate?

Anywaym thanks for the answers.

They can ban the people who hack, though that’s hard to keep ontop of

Not to mention if the hacker has decent brains, they’ll keep everything within plausible limits so that they appear to be playing truthfully. For example, in the game “Survival Lab”, there’s a badge to get a score of 100,000. Now, if the leader board shows someone with an exact 100,000 score, there’s a decent chance they hacked. Likewise, if it shows something like 4294967295, then they either hacked or you’re looking at Maist’s score.

However, say it shows something like 185027. Looks like a completely possible score, right? I just typed that in at random (well, making sure a 1 was first). If I were to hack that score into the game and get the badge, there’s basically no one who could figure out it was hacked.

Now, the developer could possibly put in some checksums to detect hacking somehow (say, having mirror variables for all of the values that could be hacked, then checking to make sure they’re equal every few minutes), but that’s not in Kong’s hands. What Kong could possibly do is make all the games server-based, but then you start having massive load times as seen in most MMOs on the site. And that would get old fast.

AND they don’t seem to care as much as us. To them it’s all the same basically, if you’re hacking or doing it legitimately. You’re still giving them ad revenue.

Regarding Epic Battle Fantasy 4 on Steam greenlight, I’ve already told Matt Roszak that he was free to promote the Steam version of the game within Epic Battle Fantasy 4 on Kongregate, which is what he’s currently doing. This is probably the most effective promotion that can be done.

About the problem involving jerks (like me) who use adblocks… Why not make it so that before a game, there is a dialog that pops up when Kong determines an adblock is being used. Then the user needs to wait about 20 seconds at a blank screen until they can play. That way people will turn their adblock off because it’s easier to just skip the ads. Kong still makes revenue and the only people who will really get upset by this are those who are using the adblock (who donate nothing to the site).

Of course this doesn’t apply to K+ members.

Dunno if it’s possible, but if it is then surely it will come in handy.

I use adblocker. When they first started putting in ads at the beginning of games it would be blank and make you wait for so many seconds (their was a countdown timer). I haven’t seen an ad in a long time though.

and it didn’t make me turn of adblocker

Well for me, it goes right to the game no problem. It gives me no incentive to make me stop using it (although I haven’t actually played a game in half a month lol)

Topic: Kongregate / Best gaming website?

You’re going to get a really serious bias by asking that here. So I’ll tell you how it goes.

“Kongregate is the best!”

Now go onto Armor games.

“Armor games is the best!”

Try Newgrounds

“Newgrounds is the best!”

It’s not really telling you anything because the particular group you are asking is biased.

These statements contradict each other. If someone guessed or figured out your password, you were not hacked. If I found your car key in your office desk and stole your car, I didn’t hotwire it.

Topic: Kongregate / Post Your Wins.

This is long, but man was it so full of win.

TetrisSucks: And cow is nice. Because he isn’t a dirty Malaysian who is also Canadian who likes tetris from either Iowa or Illinois and hosts a tourney who rages all of the time without a name!
TetrisSucks: And I’ve never been here before. I am a brand new account
Blizzard2000: loooooooool
TetrisSucks: So I know nothing about any of you
Ericzander: HYENA’S SO HARD
SilentSand: Well, we’re all the same person
LethalMutiny: It’s Wiggles.
TetrisSucks: I like cow because he isn’t a stupid jedi who avoids cacti while saying goodbye constantly when everyone ignores them. Cow doesn’t have a bunch of alts that start with SS and he has more than zero creativity. He is also not an asian living in Canada who has a super mortal enemy.
TetrisSucks: And once again, I know none of you.
SilentSand: Well, my name is Wiggles.
Blizzard2000: Why the reference to my alt? Lol
SilentSand: Some people think I rage.
CowFriend: Thx, Tetris
CowFriend: I luv u
TetrisSucks: BLizzard I don’t know what an alt is. What are you some stupid 14 year old Canadian who visits his family in Washington sometimes?
TetrisSucks: My god, and I hate tomatoes.
Ericzander: This guy is killing me!
Woon1957: ERIC
Woon1957: CAKE
TetrisSucks: Ericzander shut up. you probably laugh like an idiot.
Blizzard2000: dat hyena laugh
SilentSand: Nah
SilentSand: That’s Maist
SilentSand: Maist has this annoying Hyena laugh.
SilentSand: It pisses me off.
TetrisSucks: Guys. I don’t know why you are all singing that rhianna song.
TetrisSucks: It’s like you all saw it together or something
SilentSand: You mean
SilentSand: CAKE
SilentSand: It’s wiggle’s favorite food.;
TetrisSucks: Who is Wiggles?
SilentSand: Me
SilentSand: I’m Wiggles
TetrisSucks: He sounds like a fat kid who rages all of the time.
TetrisSucks: He probably streams it
TetrisSucks: But I don’t know
Blizzard2000: XD
TetrisSucks: Because I don’t know any of you.
SilentSand: I do that, yes
SilentSand: What do I sound like?
Ericzander: dis chat…
Ericzander: keeps distracing me from my game
Blizzard2000: ^
Blizzard2000: “I’m walrus titty because I’m retarded.” —awein999
TetrisSucks: ericzander shut up. you probably hate hackers. why do you care if somebody plays a game differently than you? Are you a nazi?
TetrisSucks: This is all getting kind of precarious….
SilentSand: I’m sad
SilentSand: There aren’t any insults directed towards me
SilentSand: I wanna be included
CowFriend: SS ur a nub
TetrisSucks: I don’t know you.
CowFriend: You happy?
SilentSand: Yes
SilentSand: So very happy
TetrisSucks: And it’s not like I based my name off of you or anything
SilentSand: I feel like a member of the in-group now
TetrisSucks: since I made this before meeting any of you.
TetrisSucks: I hate people who play wii or racing fans
TetrisSucks: I like Cow because he isn’t a reptile that bites
TetrisSucks: I mean, turtles that bite are the worst.

and nobody figured out who I was for like another half hour of this.
