Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Suggestion and ideas thread

I’m mayor of a city I moved to and I think the name is dumb. Could we perhaps have a city renaming option for mayors?

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Useless shopkeeper

Yes, but he’s still less useful than having another worker take his place from time to time. Everything my worker can make is sitting at 20+ of each item and I have other items from other workers that are starting to hit 0. I’d like the option to trade out the main worker too. Even if it’s unlocked at a certain level, it’s still a help.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Town recruitment thread

I’ve got a city, Unmuville. 28k pop, but two very active players, both A or above Donation. Looking for at least a C to join. Tier 1 and 2 resources available and some tier 3. The others are very close. Any active players are welcome and encouraged to join. Message me for an invite, game name is the same as here. :)

Awesome. Thanks for all the help guys (or gals?). It all works now.

His profile has formatting, so it’s possible in some way.

And I know my example formatting is wrong, but if I did it correctly then it would actually format instead of kind of showing the formatting code.

Topic: Kongregate / Formatting in Profiles

I’ve read through several forum threads concerning formatting on this site and as far as I can tell you should use either the textile or HTML styles of formatting. I’ve been trying to superscript stuff in the about me section of my profile and both superscript (using ^) and superscript (using <sup /sup>) both seem not to work. Neither does the horizontal rule (hr) or any other formatting. I understand if it’s done differently than on the forums, but I’ve seen people with formatting in their profiles. If anyone could tell me how specifically to superscript and add a horizontal rule to my profile, that would be awesome.

Any plans on a level 65 and level 75 PvP set of clothes from the arena?

I would love at least a 65 set, as I’m almost there.

I’d like to have it so instead of just attaching a picture to the report a missing achievement thing, that we have the option to add a video, because there are too many games that you can’t prove your victory on with one picture, sometimes there’s an easy badge of the day that I can’t get just because it doesn’t feel like updating what I’ve done…

@above that would be absolutely great and highly useful feature! I wonder why I didn’t got that earlier in the past to my mind. Sending double reports is confusing to admins and troublesome for users

When I send in missing badge reports in games that might need a video or where a picture just isn’t enough, I take a couple screenshots, then just put them together in MSPaint. Not as good as a video, but it’s several pictures in one report.

I think it would be a good idea to give Kong Plus for free to people who are over a certain level or people who have been a member of the site for a certain amount of time. It would be a good way to show thanks to devoted fans.

Maybe not a free subscription, but to those of us who are level 65, maybe a free weeks trial. I suppose hackers would get this trial as well, but it’s only a week.

Yes actually. Many a user has. I support this. Especially the currently undeletable messages.

Suggestion: Since this thread is 550 pages long, how about deleting it, and starting another one?

Suggestions from the start (Just over 5 years ago) have either been forgotten or implemented, and suggestions from the middle (Pages 100 → 400) will be ignored (Would anyone really read the middle of a 500 page thread?)

Well perhaps if someone very courageous and awesome were to look through and make a post categorizing all the feasible suggestions that haven’t been implemented, we wouldn’t get any more “I’m not looking through X number of pages, but…” or “Derp, I’m suggesting this thing that was on the last page”. I would certainly love to read through that list.
Probably not very likely to happen though.

i have no idea if this has been discussed before, a quick 2 second man look showed nothing, but how about a random game button?

i would suggest that it only takes you to games that have over a certain number of plays and a certain rating, so maybe 500 plays and higher than a 2.5 in an effort to take you to decent games rather than wading through the quagmire of dress up games, mario clones and very poorly made squigly line fests that you see on the list of new games

the top bar boasts 53,177 games, in the current chat room i’m looking at there are 111 users playing 55 different games, other than badged games i doubt i ever get to see a game that’s not in the hot new games page or front page, a little more diversity and a revisit to old classics can never be a bad thing,

This is a good idea. They do have a random game button at the top of the home page, but sometimes, the game just plain stinks.
I was expecting the Badge of the Day to highlight older games as well, but almost all the BotD’s are from games that are less than 3 months old. Perhaps that is my suggestion: just because a game is older it doesn’t mean it still isn’t good. The BotD should reflect this sentiment.

Kongregate Formatting Page doesn’t have the abbreviation code listed,
which it should as it is immensely useful.

For example: to be able to abbreviate long-named games such as YHTBTR,
while new gamers can hover the abbreviation to see what it stands for.

Its also a fine make-shift alternate for people who enjoy using spoilers: SPOILER.

This is infinitely awesome. +1

Honestly i have no idea if this has been said (post being so long) but i, personally, would like to be able to see my high scores on my profile page

Like search feature for your own personal highscores? Could be done but I don’t see actual purpose for this.
People generally checks their highscores when playing the game. Not really first priority feature to be programmed

Yes, but if you’re the highest score in a game, either all-time, or today, or whatever, it could be in a list on your profile, like a trophy. Badges aren’t much different in usefulness (aside from points).

Imagine; getting an Easy Badge: 5 pts. 5 * 2 = 10. 10 * 3 = 30 points. It’d mean to basically get a Hard Badge.

If you earn an easy badge, you get 5 points. If it’s ‘badge of the day’ you get an additional 5 points. If it’s ‘badge of the week’ you get an additional 10 points. You’d get a total of 20 points, not 30, so it’s a 4-times multiplier with both, not 6-times. I don’t see an issue with the same badge being used for both, however, since what difference does it make to have a badge be ‘badge of the day’ and earn it, then have it be ‘badge of the week’ the next week as opposed to during the same week? You’d get the points in either case, it’s just a matter of timing. There’s a more pressing issue though, since it’s a higher proposed multiplier for points, badges would be worth too much, so if it were to be put into place, I’d suggest just making it the same as it currently is, 2-times the points.

Maybe instead of one badge, make it 3 or something. When all are completed, then you get the extra points, otherwise it’s just in essence 8 BotD’s per week.

This has probably been recommended before, but I couldn’t find a way to search a forum thread, so I’m not sure. I would love to see a feature that would work just like Favorites, but would be called “Play Later” so that if I find a game or see one come up on the front page, I can add it to the list so I can remember to play it later, if I don’t have the time to play it right now.

You can load the game up for a few seconds and it will go on a recently played list on the front page.

I don’t have such a list. I’ve looked. I read a page or 3 ago it could be due to AdBlock.

I think a quick and fun little addition would be to able to share kreds with other users (unless you can and I haven’t figured out how!). Especially around this time of year, there’s been more than a few people that I wanted to donate to, yet didn’t have a game/music/etc.

If you can, I’ll feel a bit silly, but let me know what you think. ^^

This is a great idea, but I’m sure there’s some form of alt abuse that’ll take place.

Ability to see what we have in common with another user. I mean:
Games you have both favourited,
Games you’ve rated the same,
Games you’ve commented on,
Badges you both have,
etc

It’s pretty much shows what you both already have.
Useless tool, I know. But meh…

I think this is an interesting idea, but the first thing that popped into my head: Kongregate, the Gamer’s Dating Site.
