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.

Has anyone suggested a ‘Delete all Messages/shouts button?’

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.

We’ve had this preview post discussion at least twice in the past couple months. I agree with NaturalReject, it would be a nice function. But as Cammy_Justice said, it isn’t all that useful for 99% of the people 99% of the time.
Let’s just say that people disagree and leave it up to the admins to decide whether to implement it.

Doesn’t take much space for a single user, for a single game. But then combine all users together. And then all games. All games for all users. That’s .. substantial, to say the least. And costly. The only reason one loses their savegames is because their folders auto-delete, or their parents delete them, or they’re getting a new PC. In all the time I’ve been on Kongregate, I have never lost a single save file. I’ve switched PCs once, but I just copied all the necessary files to my new one. Voila.

Yes, but it takes quite a few saves to equal just a couple kb. I would expect that saving everyone’s data all at once for every game would fit on a 2 or 3 Tb harddrive. That’s a $250 cost to Gamestop, tops. Well worth it, I would think.

I have a few suggestions for comments. 1) Spoiler Tags, This would be implemented in a simliar way that very low scoring comments get hidden. Also instead of it say Spoiler(show) you should be able to put something like [Spoiler=Suggestion] and it would show as Suggestion(show) instead.

I’m really glad you posted this, as I posted the exact same thing two pages ago. I would think there are a lot more of us that wants this implemented.

And I make three. This would be great if implemented.

How about “Flag Highscore” next to selected highscore. There are lot of games with users having impossible scores.

And Kong does have people who go through and remove the obviously cheated highscores on occasion. I’ve seen ridiculous scores disappear. I guess it’s just not a perfect system.

Actually, they don’t. It’s a bot.

Well, I was not so much misinformed as uninformed. Thanks for the info, Sellyme!

I would like to see the “tip jar” feature more prominently displayed on the site. Right now, the only way I know to get at the tip jar for a given game is clicking the ‘game’ tab on the sidebar, then scrolling aaall the way to the bottom. Basically, you have to know it’s there to find it.

Whether there should be a tip jar in the first place, as opposed to paying game developers enough that they don’t have to panhandle, is beside the point. The tip jar is there, so why not make it actually visible? Maybe a “tip” link at the top next to “Instructions”, “rate this game” and “add to favorites”? Maybe under the game, with the rest of the game information, before the comments window? Maybe both, and more? I don’t know, but I’d like to see it displayed directly on the page so donating is a one-click affair, two at the most. Making it easy for the people who generate revenue for you to make money themselves is only common courtesy.

I’m pretty pisspoor, so I don’t tip much or often. I do agree with your suggestion though. It only seems polite.

I would like to suggest that Kongregate Moderators would have the ability to silence peoples I.P as well as their account, this would be useful when someone is silenced and they come back again on a separate account and bother people again, sorry if this has been suggested before I didn’t want to read over 500 pages of suggestions to find out.

Also, there are at least three other accounts that aren’t mine from my house (roommates/siblings). Banning my IP would also ban theirs.

Try searching for those tags.
