Topic: Technical Support / My game has disappeared :(

Damn, I had all the achievements before this happened :P

I added instructions on the game page to recover the lost achievements :)

For your information, Tech Support replied. They do not know what happened, and they apologize. Strange.
I re-uploaded the game, but all ratings, comments, achievements, etc, are lost :(

Thanks for your support, people!

Hmmmmm…. interesting… I have absolutely no problem in renaming the game. If only Kongregate would confirm that this is the reason for the deletion, so that it does not happen again…

Thanks guys, I’ll let you know if Kong replies my email.

Hey, thanks! first encouraging answer I receive :´)
I just emailed support.

It was barely over $25. It was precisely a couple days after it reached $25, when in theory it starts the “one-month verification period”, that the deletion happened.
I guess it had not drawn any admin’s attention until then, but then again, an explanation would have been nice…

I guess I can upload it again, yeah, but I thought that would be unpolite if the admins had a good reason to delete it in the first place. If only I knew what the reason for the deletion was…

Also, what would happen to my revenues if I uploaded the game again? it is a ridiculous amount, but, you know, I earned it by making a videogame and I was stupidly excited about it. Now I am all sad :(

BTW, what is the admin’s email?

I am a bit lost now… had Eyedol’s post anything to do with me?

Anyway, regarding the probability that I am not the original developer, is there a way to get me a chance to prove my authorship? or to get an official explanation from Kongregate, for the matter?

Topic: Technical Support / My game has disappeared :(

Hi all!

Sorry for cross-posting, I hope this is the right forum now!

I am the developer of Tetris Achievements. It’s just a Tetris clone, no big deal, but it was my first Flash test.

However, a few days ago, it disappeared. The link does not work anymore:
http://www.kongregate.com/games/Masteganenas/tetris-achievements
It does not appear in my profile, I lost my “D”, and all my Ad revenues have been cancelled. This has just happened a couple of days after the revenues reached $25 and my account started the 1 month verification period.

I received so far no explanation whatsoever on Kong’s side, even though I already emailed them.

Anyone has any clue on what is happening here? I haven’t broken any rule as far as I know, the game is not ofensive, there are plenty other Tetris on the site, I have not used any bot, … I just don’t know what happened :(

Just in case you do not believe me, this is a link to a cached version of the page (the whole link is not underlined, be careful):

Thanks for any help!

I have already emailed Kongregate, and received no answer so far, that’s why I was checking in here, just in case anyone had any idea.

Topic: Game Programming / My game has disappeared!

It was uploaded around October 2008, and it had very good criticism. Last time I checked it had a rating of 3.38, around 400 ratings, 9000-something gameplays and 100 favourited.
You cannot find it anywhere because it has been completely obliterated, but you can find the post where I begged for badges here:

And that was in January…

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Minium rating is 3.50

I wanted to check how strict the unofficial “3.5” rule was :)

Tetris Achievements is very fun, but the achievements are Hard. D:

Hey! that can be changed very easily! I am open to suggestions :)

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Hi all!

First off, I do not know if this is the right spot to put this, so feel free to flame me but don’t forget to point me to the right place!

I am the developer of Tetris Achievements, which has been posted here for a while now, collecting user suggestions, and implementing them. I am quite satisfied with the community’s response to the game, rating the game with 3.35 stars (so far :).

Therefore, I feel bold enough to suggest that badges are awarded to the game. The API is in place, it has been tested extensively, and the game already has an achievements system.

Come on! The users who have favourited it (all 56 of them, so far!) deserve it! I really do not suggest this out of my own personal greed ¬_¬’

Thanks for listening, and keep up this great site!

Topic: Collaborations / Beta testers wanted for a Tetris clone (was:Protocol for finding beta testers?)

Hi all again,

So, yeah, the game is a Tetris clone, sorry, I did say it was my first Flash project ever, right :)
In my discharge, it uses the Kong API, and I have seen no Tetris on Kong with achievements and scores…

Ok, I made a mini site to host the game at http://www.freewebs.com/masteganenas
It contains the game and some instructions on how to beta test it.

If you want to help and try the game, mail me at masteganenas@gmail.com and I will mail you back the password for the game.

Well, that’s it! thanks a lot, and remember that I work for no company, I have no money to pay, and I am no famous Flash developer, but hey! I can put your name in the Credits :)

Hey, wow, thanks to everyone, specially to Yllier.
Ok, I will make a free web and send the link around.

I’ll get back to you when it’s ready, and will probably change the title of the thread :)

Hello all!

First, please excuse me if this is well known or posted elsewhere. I have been looking in the forum but haven’t found anything.

I am Maste, been playing Kong games for a while now, and finally decided to upload my own one. It is my first Flash project ever, so it’s kinda simple.
But even if it’s simple, I don’t want it to be poorly done or buggy, so I’d like to beta test it first.

Now, I have a few doubts…
1. Where do I find volunteers to test the game?
2. What is the best way to send them the game?
3. How do I make sure the game is not stolen?

I think that will be all. Thank you very much for your answers, and please be forgiving… I am new to Flash and to UPloading to Kong :)

Cheers!
