The last thing I pre-ordered was the last C.H.E.R.U.B. book. Only one to go. :D

There’s only one left? Blimey, that went fast.

Also, in the UK at least, the last one appears to be out now, according to Muchamore’s website.

Topic: Technical Support / Something with profiles

My problem didn’t exist until earlier today. I’m using 1440×900 (16:10), flicking all the way down to 1024×768 (4:3) doesn’t make a difference, as far as I can tell.

Topic: Technical Support / Something with profiles

After looking at the source code for pages (as I’m trying to make a fansite look vaguely like Kongregate), the default font, Lucida Grande, is installed by default on most Apple Macs, but not by Windows users, who get, in order of preference, Verdana, Arial, and any other sans-serif fonts.

It appears that the profiles aren’t broken (on my end) for Verdana, but they are for Lucida Grande, that I recently installed. As Lucida Grande is higher up the preference list, Kongregate is rendered in Lucida Grande, and so I’m getting warped profiles.

However, 123aaa789 has Verdana (and so, probably a Windows box), which doesn’t appear to be associated with this particular hypothesis.

No, putting messages in chat is in closed beta. Having a chat room is something different.

Topic: Technical Support / Something with profiles

I’ve just noticed the same problem as the opening post:

This happens on both profiles I looked at (MrSpontaneous’ and mine).

The problem, I think, started once I installed the font Lucida Grande, which is the font that Kongregate tries to get people to use before falling back on Verdana etcetera. The site looks completely different now…

Yes you can, you make a picture related to the badge, you put it inside a badge_frame, then put a name on it. After that you give your badge to Greg with description and hope he will add it. (You also gotta add/check API, you can check if the game’s API’s are working by adding ?debug_level=3 at the end of the URL)

No…

You don’t put the badge frame around it; you take a picture that is at least 60×60px (with a 10px boundary (or proportionate)). You add debug_level=4, and look at Firebug’s console.

And (unless I’m mistaken), the wiki has to follow COPPA.

MediaWiki wikis (Wikipedia; Wikia; WMF projects; not TVTropes; Meatball) don’t ask for date of birth on registration. The idea behind it is that anyone can edit, completely anonymously; and a username simply hides the IP address (and allows flags on the account, e.g. sysop; ’crat)

So does Firefox 4.0bX.

How are they going to find out who did this? (Ignoring the fact that Kongregate has nothing to gain to take this to court)

Maybe someone who can track IP could find out?

Proxies; TOR; ISPs don’t like giving out sensitive information; IPs can be shared too.

You need to opt CCleaner out of deleting your .sol files. Do that, and your problem might be fixed.

Answer the following questions clearly and concisely:

  • What operating system are you using?
  • Do you have administrator privileges on your computer?
  • What does the Global Storage Settings Panel say?
  • Have you used TheForumer’s suggestion below? Did it work?
