My initial reaction was, “Ew, Family Guy,” but a Kong t-shirt would be cool. :)

Topic: Kongregate / Updated Games

I finally fixed the invincibility bug in a really old game no one cares about, so it’s playable now: http://www.kongregate.com/games/Ullallulloo/tv-hero

It’s a decent Shootorial game, though. =/

Topic: Kongregate / Getting a PM whenever you earn the Badge of the Day is annoying

Originally posted by Sellyme:I’m not trying to sound ungrateful, I would just like the problem fixed.

And it should be fixed, but some of the earlier posts seemed kinda douchey, and like some people were expecting everything to be catered to their needs.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to.

Thank you. :)

that’s a silly response, no? it seems woefully unnecessary to block kongregate for this, esp when you might want their other e-mails or notifications aboot other things. getting the same, repetitive, unimportant e-mail per day can be spammy, and users should have the option to block this particular type of e-mail/notification.

Oh no, 1 message a day, the horror.

1 email per day is spammy now? Keep in mind that you are getting free money for doing this. I think you can stand getting an email for that.

Spam is defined as:

unwanted e-mail


I don’t want it, therefore it is spam, and that’s an absolutely horrible excuse to not fix a problem.

A collection of unsolicited bulk electronic messages.

1 a day != Bulk. And I never said you getting free stuff is an excuse for it, I said you should just put up with it and not complain, considering a large majority of Kong’s population doesn’t even have the opportunity to participate.

First, you failed on the link, you should linked to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam, or more specifically: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_spam

It is mainly about people sending e-mail in bulk for commercial purposes, because that’s the only reason anybody would want to spam someone, but on the disambiguation page it gives a broader, simpler definition of simply “unsolicited or undesired email messages.”

I’m not trying to sound ungrateful, I would just like the problem fixed.

Topic: Kongregate / Getting a PM whenever you earn the Badge of the Day is annoying

I’m fine with getting a PM whenever I get a badge that didn’t submit right since that’s rare-ish, but sending me a PM (and therefore an email because I like that option) every day is getting annoying quickly. Can you please add an option to not receive PMs for them?

Uh, Flash and Java are great places to start before diving into more complex/advanced programming languages.

They’re okay for learning, but not that good overall. They’re both really slow, and both pretty different than most other programming languages. I’ve heard that Python’s the best programming language to start with, but I don’t have any personal experience with anything other than Flash, so I’m not at a place to judge. (Although my brother programs for a living and started out with Java, and he says that it’s the pretty much the worst programming language ever…)

Sorry, I didn’t mean to cause any argument here. :x

Topic: Kongregate / Tag Suggestions

I think some kind of tag for games like Dog Eat Dog, Square Meals, and Fishy would be good. Maybe something like “Growing” and apply it to Moby Dick too.

I learned from the Shootorials, but they’re not very good. Personally, the best tutorial that I’ve found for AS3 would be from As Gamer.

Topic: Kongregate / Little plus thing?

Maybe I’m slow, but I was playing castle wars 2 and there’s a little ‘+’ in the top-right corner. I don’t think it’s been there more than a couple days. What’s it do? When I click it it turns into an ‘X’!

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

I think you guys are missing the point with heir. Greg can’t make a badge to beat the game unless the developer changes the API. The only API in is for beating the three speed runs, which aren’t unlocked until beating the game. You could make a badge for any time on level one, so they have to beat the game, and the first speed run with any time, but he couldn’t do “Beat Chapter 1”, only the speed runs.

EDIT: Oops, I didn’t know it reported the first time through, because it didn’t update the High Scores tab when I did it…my whole post is invalid…

Disagree 1st idea.
Agree 2nd idea.

Be quiet. You haven’t earned it. It’s hard!

I don’t remember Hanna in a Choppa being that difficult. :S

The game itself isn’t that hard, just doing EVERYTHING is.
