Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

Alright, so this idea may have already been suggested or maybe not, but I think this is relevant.

There should be a new genre of gaming for “Arcade” games. The definition of an arcade game is as follows:

• A game with the sole purpose of achieving a highscore in one (or very few) fields.

• A game with limited actions/controls/goals (say… 3–5 or fewer in total?).

Examples of this include:

/ ESCAPE \ ; Bubbles Shooter ; FlyDrill ; Infectonator : World Dominator ; Man in Gap ; Music Catch ; Feed the King ; Antbuster ; etc.

Do you have a clear idea of the genre I’m laying out? The guidelines and so forth? Just a simple game with limited controls/actions/goals, with the main purpose of getting a highscore. I’m sure those are some justifications for a new genre of uploaded games.

Does anyone else agree?

Topic: The Arts / Echo Hall 8-bit rendition!

Hello Kongregate! This message is mainly directed at Echonians of the Chatroom Echo Hall, but since it’s difficult to go one-by-one to the only online Members at the moment, it’s simpler to make a Topic that involves collaboration from YOU!
Yes, YOU! I’m Real_AwEsUm, a regular of Echo Hall, seeking YOUR help on this matter! It’s quite simple. I would like any and all Echonians, Regular or Not, to PM me on my Profile the following information:
Your Username. Yes, I understand that when I receive the PM, I’ll know who sent it, but I want your Alias as far as it has come to be known in the Echonian world! Username as well as Nickname or most common name in Echo Hall, please :)
Your representation. This is just a fancy word for how you want to appear in this picture. Since I can’t use unoriginal work in Images uploaded to Kongregate, I’ve decided to uphold a theme—8-bit Renditions of Echonians! This goes to anyone, Regular or Not, so feel free to ask for an 8-bit Rendition of whatever you want to represent yourself :D
Note: To get the full effect for my 8-bit Rendition of you, a picture URL would be helpful. I can use the picture to properly illustrate your representation in 8-bit.
• *Any questions you may have.
It’s important to give information on this subject, so if you have any questions about this project, or anything in general relating to this, feel free to include this in your PM.
Well, that’s pretty much it! I’ll be using Photoshop CS3 for this, I’ll also be using 8-bit creations with the old Echo Hall Background (because it was completely derived from Photoshop tools).
I plan to get this completed as soon as possible, but I can’t without YOUR help! So please, PM me the above information, so we can get this neat little picture completed and on the Kongregate Collabs!
Much obliged, ~Real_AwEsUm
Furthermore; you may also post the above information here if you’re particular about PMs. Either way, I’ll reach the information, but it would be most convenient in PM form, thank you. Also, you may post your own personal 8-bit renditions of yourself if you don’t confide in my conceptualization skills.

The way I see it, Articles and Prepositions should be lower-case unless they are the start of the name. “The Number One Player of Games,” “About You in Mind,” “A Man with a Plan,”

Topic: Kongregate / Falling Moderator Standards

Originally posted by fibly:

I think that we should ALL be concerned about the falling standards for appointing moderators. Let’s go to the root of the need of moderators – trolls. The whole reason we NEED moderators is because of trolls. Moderators silence/ban the troll, and chat returns to normal. That’s the cycle of Kongregate, and that’s how it should be. Nowadays, however, this cycle has gone completely askew. The newest generation of moderators (If counting from the beginning of September), and even some of the older moderators, have become EXCRUCIATINGLY lax. Trolls run rampant in rooms without the slightest fear of being silenced. Why?: Because the moderators don’t do anything. They use more diplomatic means (which may be effective in a few isolated cases), but in general, they attempt to talk down the troll. They essentially feed the fire they’re trying to extinguish, and this simply creates a bigger fire. We (the users) have to suffer through this, because those moderators are quite incapable of silencing. Its appalling how low the bar has fallen to become a moderator. I think, and know, that moderator standards NEED to rise to face the growing number</big of trolls in the Kongregate community. No longer is being diplomatic a qualifying factor to become a moderator. Moderators need to be able to silence/ban the trolls, not talk them down. Kongregate staff has failed by and large to raise the bar, and I find this very, VERY concerning.

As has been expressed, Moderators are a Volunteer Job. Muting is one thing you can do.

In Big, I don’t see how it’s growing? Usually it’s the same people, if not users who demand attention.

In Bold, if Mods don’t talk the Trolls down some first, how can they be taught to be better in the future? Banning only fuels their feeling of accomplishing absolutely nothing, but they don’t see it. Talking to the trolls is part of preventing it, should the Wait time not suffice.

No, I was not bragging, I was just pretty much saying that the thread was common knowledge, like a ES-Razzi tutorial for using the forums.

You mean like the formatting your posts one, or the inserting images one, or the flagging posts one, or the closing your own topics one?

The posting on the forums one.

I don’t see how this thread is useless =L

Topic: Kongregate / Chat Techniques | Tricks

The following are some neat little tricks for Kongregate Chatting. They may or may not be intentional tricks, but at least take some comfort in knowing these little tricks to aid in your overall Kongregate Chatting experience.

—Trick, The First—

I’m sure you’ve ever wanted to see someone’s profile, but you simultaneously had the trouble of going through the search box. I’m sure you’d like to stay connected, and not bother with opening a new window or tab just for a profile. This trick can solve this.

• PM the desired User Profile.

• On your chat, you should see in place of your username, it says “To [User]”.

• Click on “To [User]”.

At this point, you’ve been opened up to their User Profile. So then, for whatever reasons you wanted to reach this User’s Profile, you can handle it from there, on your own. If you wanted to read their profile, recent badges, or for whatever reasons, this trick can certainly save you some trouble.

(Found by Real_AwEsUm)

—Trick, The Second—

This trick is the same as the last, but it holds a different use. Say you want to make a new Alternate Account. Do you really wanna go through Trial-and-Error in the Registration Screen? I doubt it!

• PM the desired username you wish to create (e.g. /w Teal_Blossom).

• Click the desired username “To Teal_Blossom”.

• When it uploads the Profile, it will inform you the following:

User not found

• With that shown, you can then go and register your new account!

(Found by Real_AwEsUm)

More tricks and techniques to be shared as they are found! If you find any tricks, Whisper them to me please! I’ll give your Username full credit!

The increase of users isn’t normal… How do you think 7000 people learn about a site in 1 week? and The popularity of Kongregate can’t honestly get that big, especially without advertisements that aren’t noticeable

Topic: Kongregate / News about Kongregate

This is big news.
Kongregate is having a population boom.
Last weekend there were about 31,000 users online, and if you check now, you should see at least 34,000+.
It was about 38,000 earlier today.
Kongregate even made about 4 new chatrooms today because of the lack of space.
What do you think is causing this?

Or just a jerk? :3

I know

They’re just comments attempting to be clever/witty.

I thought these were pretty darned witty =c

And that my friend, is the word of the day.

And boom goes the dynamite.

Really? That’s what my teacher said today!

Please don’t scream in caps at me or my cat fluffy. Especially fluffy. He hate caps. He prefers lids.

I wish it were that simple, but it turns out that people need attention.


Wouldn’t that technically be considered feeding the trolls, anyway?

Depends how you look at it

Thanks for the feedback =3

Topic: Kongregate / Chat replies for the Lovely Chatters

In some incidents, I’ve noticed many people bluntly stating “Hey! Don’t cuss or I’ll get you banned” in an attempt to show their “Goodness In Chat” (Last 3 Letters of MAGIC)

This is what’s known as the dreaded “Mini-Modding,” and that’s just horrible. Saying something along the lines of “Don’t Flood” | “Stop Spamming” | “Don’t Swear” | “Caps off” and such are pretty dull ways to ask someone to stop breaking the Chatroom Behaviors, but when you get into it, sometimes it can come out as Mini-Modding

Well, my Lovely Chatters, I have been through many scenarios like these, and yet manage to keep a delightful response to those ‘Not-so-lovely Chatters.’ Having a clever, simple response to a spammer | flooder | swearer | troll can be a wonderful way to lighten up a chatroom, rather than flood the chatroom with your own rants on “Don’t do this,” or “Stop that.”

—Replies to a Spammer—

• “Shove that spam up your oven.”

• “Spam is to be taken with a light meal, not a chatroom.”

• “Why spam was made, who knows. What I do know is that it wasn’t meant for you.”

~Real_AwEsUm

• “Spam is a very questionable meat. Keep your posts relevant and on topic.”


~Jiggmin

• “If you get an email from the FDA warning you about catching swine flu from canned meat, ignore it. It’s just spam.”


~lhvinny

—Replies to Flooders—

• “Flood is set to envelop the earth in about 100 years. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.”

• “Major flooding took out Atlantis. I think, if you didn’t stop, our chatroom would be next down the drain.”

• “Flood is meant to be the result of rain. Not the result of you, good sir.”

~Real_AwEsUm

—Replies to Swearers—

• “My word!”

~Real_AwEsUm

(To be used on talk like a pirate day)• “Yargh, this may be ‘Talk like a Pirate Day,’ but no need for swearin’ matey.”


~Marh

—Replies to Caps users—

• “Caps are meant for bottles.”

~Real_AwEsUm

• “I prefer lids, so get rid of those caps.”
