Currently, that is correct. My time is pretty limited, so I’m lucky to be able to squeeze out the profiles as it is. Things change but, currently, I am focusing on mods.

There were a couple of individuals doing community profiles. I don’t remember who was last doing them, however.

The holidays kind of messed with my schedule. I hope to get back to more regular entries. Also, I hope to be able to fly, develop laser vision, and pay off a credit card.

So I have my work cut out for me, obviously.

Here’s the dirt on plugin848y

Stay a while, and listen! Or read…whatevs.

Real Name: Debbie

Country: UK

What do you do for a living?: I’m a teaching assistant with children with additional needs

(Nothing witty to say here…that is full of awesome)

Origin of your username: It’s the name of a song by a band called Muse :D

(I’ve heard of them! I predict they’re going to be big stars!)

What brought you to Kong?: A search for “free flash games” one day

(We have a few…lying around, collecting dust)

Favorite game on Kong: ooo it’s going to be something puzzley but I don’t think I have a fave!

(We have designated a favorite for you: Ceiling Cat Invaders)

What room(s) do you frequent?: Ant Hill and Study Hall as a mod, different ones if I feel the need to wander :D

Favorite source of caffeine: Choca Mochas OR caramel lattes OR vanlilla lattes OR Pepsi Max.

(Why not just blend them all together?)

Arbor Day or Boxing Day: Boxing Day, we don’t have Arbor day here!

(But boxes come from trees! I don’t even…)

Hobbies: I colour comic art, I collect lego, collect comics, big reader!

What is your dream job?: I’m in it! :D

Finish this song lyric: “C is for cookie…": “D is for does anyone know what this song is?”

(C is for Cookie!)

Biggest guilty pleasure: Hurm…. I would say Lego, I’m an Adult Fan so it’s all a bit “isn’t that for kids?” :D

(I get that a lot with my hobby…eating paste…)

You’re driving Santa’s sleigh. The reindeer hatched an escape plan and have broken loose, leaving the sleigh powerless and plummeting. You have…a candy cane and a bag full of toys. Go!: tip the toys out, hook the bag onto the candy cane to create a parachute/umbrella style thing, float to safety, eat candy cane, collect fallen toys in bag, save Christmas.

(And have reindeer for dinner later!)

Why is a duck?: Because it be silly to shout anything else when there are flying objects.

(True dat)

Biggest pet peeve: Tinnitus (constant ringing in the ears, messes with hearing)

(I got tinnitus at a Wiggles concert back in ’65)

Favorite childhood memory: I have lots, I think it’d be getting read to before bed :)

How much wood COULD a wood chuck chuck?: Well if a wood chuck could chuck wood, a lot.

Tell us a joke: Mondays.

(You made me cry)

Cat or dog?: Why not both? :D

Riddle time! How many swags does it take to get the to center of a yolo fruit?(Submitted by Beny071): ew, no, you should be ashamed :P

(It hurt just to type it)

Something most Kongregants don’t know about you: I’m a BIG Pearl Jam fan :D

(It’s true. She’s 7’8")

That’s all, folks!

Topic: Kongregate / Personality Profile: Beny071

Hey, look! It’s Beny071!

Real Name: Benyamin

Country: I hail from the not so prosperous country of Bosnia and Herzegovina but currently reside in the heart of Europe. Beautiful and quaint Slovakia.

What do you do for a living?: I’m actually a full time space miner and I can still download at 5Mbps!

Origin of your username: Ah, well sadly there is no epic backstory for this one. Beny is short for Benyamin and that’s what almost everyone calls me, and 071 is the area code for Sarajevo, the Capital of Bosnia. Now that’s patriotism right there.

(Also, I had already registered Beny001-070.)

What brought you to Kong?: I started getting into flash games a few years ago but sites like Newgrounds or Miniclip didn’t quite tickle my fancy. I expressed my problems to a friend and he suggested Kongregate and challenged me to get to level 15 in a week. Needless to say that that was a pretty hectic week with minimum amounts of sleep. :D

(I slept my way to level 15 in one day!)

Favorite game on Kong: Definitely has to be High Tea. I frequently find myself trying to break my old scores in the early hours of the night and besides, who doesn’t love a game where you sell opium and buy tea for good ol’ Queen and country. Psst, sequel sequel sequel!

(Priorities!!)

What room(s) do you frequent?: Counterproductive Procrastinators is the room I created and generally reside in and, as the name implies, I usually hang out there and routinely put off all my work. But don’t be like me kids, do your work on time. The second room I occasionally drop by in is The Hive which is the first room I was placed in when I joined Kongregate. Over the years I built up a circle of friends there and from time to time I drop in to say hi. :D

Favorite source of caffeine: Pish posh, I don’t need this so called caffeine. In all honesty I’m not a huge fan of coffee so any caffeine I receive is through tea mostly. Chin chin mate.

(Don’t need caffeine?? It’s like I don’t even know you! You are not my son!!)

Mac or PC?: PC until I die, the thought of having to use a Mac makes me ;_;. In the words of the Scout “Rainbows make me cry”.

(For fear of my life, I am not making a comment either way on this one.)

Hobbies: I’m an avid saxophone player and somewhat of a movie buff. Every night I play a little John Jenkins and then I creep into bed and watch a movie that sparked my interesting somewhere somehow. Other than that, I enjoy video games and broadening my horizons by browsing the web for interesting tidbits of information.

(I herd cats. It’s a hobby!)

What is your dream job?: Hmm…This is a little cliche but either a film director or failing that a Neuroparasitologist. Either works. But hey, if there are any job opening for either give me a whisper and I’ll be on you faster than a millipede on mango juice.

(Neuroparasitologist is soooo cliche. Like, be original, man.)

Finish this song lyric: “Blinded by the light…" I’ve decided to write a poem.
Blinded by the light my senses flinch
My sight, my vision, my perception gone in a pinch
Slowly they recover, bit by bit
Using my whit, I deduce the cause of this visual split
Twas nothing but a camera in the night
Set up to give unsuspecting strangers a fright

(I think that works better than the actual lyrics.)

Favorite junk food: I don’t know if this qualifies as junk food but cinnamon buns covered in warm icing. Cinnamon is my favorite thing in the world and I’d basically eat anything drenched in cinnamon. I once had a sandwich called the “Cardiac Arrest” and that was pretty tasty!

(It obviously failed to live up to its name…)

The room is filling with water. You have a pack of gum, a ballpoint pen, a banana, and five electric eels. Go!: Easy. Throw the eels in the water, chew the gum, blow a huge bubble, pop the bubble with the pen, eels get scared and begin to emit deadly amounts of electricity. Electro is my bro and he would definitely pick up on that large amount of electricity and come rescue me. Luckily I had my rubber boots on!

Which came first—the chicken or the egg?: I’d say the chicken. Everyone knows that the egg couldn’t have been first as eggs were only invented in the 12th century. I’ll never understand these silly people who never bothered to learn their history and think that the egg could have been first. Wake up people.

(The all-you-can-eat breakfast bar appeared soon after.)

Do you know where I left my wallet?: Umm…well….Here it is. Twas in my pocket but I swear by the Old Gods and the New that it wasn’t I that absconded with your wallet. I blame those urchins in Fleatown.

(You’re a Kender, aren’t you?)

Most interesting place visited: It has to be Amsterdam for now. When I went there it was mind blowing, like you stepped into some crazy dystopian future. Nevertheless I had a tonne of fun there and is probably one of my most memorable trips.

Something you’re looking forward to: Mainly video game releases like The Stick of Truth. But I’m also looking forward to TV shows that will be airing soon like Game of Thrones. OH MAN I CANT WAIT FOR THAT HELP PLZ. D:

Look! Something shiny!: We are not amused….Ooof…..Nope…..Resist…….POUNCE Here you go, I think playing with this object for the last 5 days is enough. If you’ll excuse me I’ll be going for a long deserved catnap.

(But…it’s not shiny anymore. YOU MONSTER!!!)

What do you think is an appropriate punishment for people who eat others’ lunches out of the refrigerator at work?: Well now there are a lot of options to consider. Should one go for the traditional approach and put laxative in the next meal? Or should he do something more extreme? I think I would catch him in the act and give him a slap with my discernible white glove and challenge him to pistols at dawn. Yes…that’ll teach him.

(We also would’ve accepted “kick to the junk”.)

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?: (Submitted by Bob10110): Not counting the OP power that is controlling time and space, I would probably say no clip in real life. You can fly and get to look silly in public!

(H4X!!!)

Something most Kongregants don’t know about you: In the early hours of the morning, when no one’s looking, I like to go outside and howl at the moon. I’m also an avid History enthusiast and love to broaden my horizons of that past.

(Historically, werewolves have not fared well…)

Anything else you’d like to add?: I feel as though it’s my civic duty to inform you that you should stay in school and be good throughout your life.

(CBS CARES!)

Topic: Kongregate / Personality Profile: Bob10110

We delve into the psyche of Bob10110

Sanitizer will be provided afterward.

Real Name: Adam

(if that is your real name.)

State/Country: Iowa, United States

What do you do for a living?: Just graduated college with a Bachelor’s in Software Engineering.

(Kongrats!)

Origin of your username: Way back when I was first getting into online gaming some 10 years ago I wanted a username that nobody would really pay much attention to. I’ve stuck with that name ever since, for the most part – though I will sometimes use BinaryBob nowadays.

(Pretty sneaky, sis.)

What brought you to Kong?: I was looking for something new to do, as another site I had frequented to play games drastically slowed down its new game releases.

(And Kong radiates awesome.)

Favorite game on Kong: As far as the single-player games go, I’m really getting back into the MARDEK RPG series, specifically chapter 3 – over 80 hours of my time has gone into that game and I loved every minute of it. I’ve also played a bunch of multiplayer games, of which Sacred Seasons (the first one) and Realm of the Mad God are among my all-time Kong favorites.

What room(s) do you frequent?: Multiplayer game rooms mostly, and occasionally the two room chats ItBeARoomYo! and Indigenous Kumquat Research Center. I also frequent certain private chatrooms provided through the wonders of Kong Plus.

(What happens in private chat stays in private chat…or so we all hope.)

What color crayon would you like to see the most?: Pineapple.

(I’d eat that.)

Movies: 3D or 2D?: I have to say 2D here, as I prefer entertainment that lets me escape from reality and 3D is still a bit too real for me.

(You should try 1D. Flat-out amazing.)

Hobbies: When I’m not playing video games, I’m usually watching other people play them on Twitch. I’ve even tried my hand at making a game from scratch, usually for my own enjoyment.

Worst nightmare ever: I remember to this day one particular nightmare involving Pokémon turning evil during my birthday party…I think I’ll just leave it at that.

(Bulbasaur SMASH!!!)

Finish this song lyric: “Remember after the fire, after all the rain…": …I’ll always be here, to ease all the pain. (Or at least that’s how I would write it; if this was an actual song lyric then I don’t know as I don’t listen to music terribly often.)

Favorite Concert: I haven’t really gone to any concerts that I can vividly remember.

(I bet you Saw Barney live last year…)

The airplane is going to crash. You have an ink pen, a bearded lizard, two bananas, and a large cup of coffee. Go!: Clearly I am doing my physics homework at a friend’s house (who just so happens to have a pet bearded lizard). And why do the questions on these assignments have to be so morbid these days?

If you could own any car, what would it be?: Not sure what I want, but something eco-friendly.

Which way to the library?: Don’t we use the Internet to look things up now?

(Why didn’t I think of that??)

Languages known: English, a bit of Spanish, C, Java, bits and pieces of numerous other computer programming languages.

(I speak Jive!)

Next video game you’d like to play: I’m tempted to give Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft a try whenever it gets out of the closed beta.

(Still waitin’ in Jumpcat 2…)

PS4 or Xbox One: I don’t really play on consoles these days, and I’ve had Nintendo consoles in the past so I probably wouldn’t be deciding between these two anyways.

But I’m talkin’ about Shaft!: Definitely sounds like a pop culture reference that I wouldn’t know without looking it up. (I actually did look it up to make sure that I didn’t know it. =P)

Who is your favorite author? (Submitted by Payton_Hayes): That would have to be JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series.

Something most Kongregants don’t know about you: I got lost in a forest during a third grade school field trip. It helped me appreciate and respect nature later on in life.

Anything else you’d like to add?: Pineapples

Topic: Kongregate / Personality Profile: FrozenCereal

(Edited—now with my interjections.)

Mom! I can’t eat this! It’s FrozenCereal!

Real Name: Luke Nathan Rosenberg

Country: United States

What do you do for a living?: I’m a college student, although I’m trying to get a field in game design.

(Don’t bother. Videogames are a passing fad. They’ll never last!)

Origin of your username: One winter morning before school, our heater was broken, and I mused about how my cereal could just freeze on the spot due to how cold it was.

(I’d make a joke here, but cereal that is frozen…that’s srs biz.)

What brought you to Kong?: I saw some kids playing on Kongregate at my school, and since our school usually blocked game sites I went to check out this un-blocked one.

Favorite game on Kong: Ooh, I don’t know if I could pick a single one. Fancy Pants Adventures 3 was beautifully done, though.

What room(s) do you frequent?: Nowadays? I’m fairly inactive, but I primarily reside in Everfree Forest. Sometimes I bounce into Labyrinth or The Hive, though.

If you had a mutant superpower, what would it be?: Energy manipulation! Power over heat, electricity—that’d be so cool!

What is the first video game you ever played?: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Love it to this day!

Hobbies: Procrastinating… video games, internet, the sort. League of Legends too!

Grumpy cat or happy cat?: Happy cat!

(WRONG. No points!)

Finish this song lyric: “If you don’t eat your meat, you can’t have any pudding…” Lies and slander, I’ll eat the pudding anyways!

(Fine! But it’s been sitting out for days!)

Mouse, trackball, or touchpad?: Mouse, of course.

(My first mouse was a trackball. True story.)

You open the fridge to see a bunch of rabid badgers. You have a toothbrush, plastic bag, and a half-empty can of soda. Go!: Close fridge, let them suffocate. That might sound mean but heck if I’m getting mauled >.>

(And now you have potential dinner!)

Should there be another three Star Wars movies?: Sure, why not? Some people say it might be ruined, but Disney made the Pirates series—I say give ’em a chance.

(Just as long as there are no more Highlander movies!)

Funnier: Andy Dick or an inanimate carbon rod?: Gonna go with the carbon rod, since I dunno this Andy fellow.

(Inanimate Carbon Rod for president!)

If you could have music played as you entered the room, what would it be?: Any Foo Fighters song.

Lion Voltron or vehicle Voltron?: The one with a balloon.

If you could do one thing over, what would it be?: Maybe high school. I actually enjoyed my experiences, but if I got a better GPA I would be in a better spot right now xD

(Well, okay, but wedgie technology has advanced quite a bit in the last couple of years…)

If someone told you to “stop”, would you collaborate and listen, or would it be Hammer time?: Why can’t it be both?

(Mind=blown.)

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like? (Submitted by Zshadow): Oh heavens no!

Something most Kongregants don’t know about you: I honestly can’t think of anything off the top of my head. I’m fairly forthright about myself xD

A brief glimpse into the shadowy flight of a man…who does not exist…wait, no, he does.

Real Name: Zachary, but some just call me Z!

Country: United States – particularly in the Southern part. Fried chicken anyone?

(Don’t mind if I do!!)

What do you do for a living?: Right now, I work here at Kongregate and scraping together a degree in Physics.

(Yeah, out of neutrons, electrons, and dark matter)

Origin of your username: It all started a long time ago, on a place called “Youtube”. My 15 year old brain, trying to muster a username, chose the first letter of my name and added “shadow” to it because… uh… no idea, really.

What brought you to Kong?: I believe it was either Detective Grimoire, or Super Crazy Guitar Maniac Deluxe 2. I’m not addicted though… right? Right?!

(Put down the pixels…it’s okay…)

Favorite game on Kong: Now that’s a tough choice… Legend of Kalevala is right up there. I like a good Nintendo style game.

What room(s) do you frequent?: I usually pop in around Echo Hall, the room I once owned, but you can call me a drifter nowadays.

[joke redacted because it was totally unfunny]

If you had a mutant superpower, what would it be?: I’d like the ability to teleport, like in “Jumper”. Of course, there’s always the chance of accidentally teleporting inside of someone…

(FATALITY!)

What is the first video game you ever played?: Reaching back into the locked away memories of my youth, it’d have to be Super Mario Brothers for the Nintendo. That should be everyone’s answer!

(Pffft. They weren’t so super. They didn’t even have capes!)

Hobbies: Is mayonnaise a hobby?

(Yes. Yes it is.)

PC or Mac?: PC all the way. Macs are terribly un-upgradable.

(And non biodegradable! And all other kinds of ’ables!)

Finish this song lyric: “So here it is, another chance Wide awake, you face the day…” Your dream is over, or has it just begun?

(Dangit! I wasn’t prepared for that question!)

What do you want to be when you grow up? How does that differ from when you were a child?: Hopefully, an optics physicist (yay science!) When I was younger though, I grew with the idea of being a barber. No idea why. I suppose I still could, string theory is about how to cut hair, right?

(It’s all in the wrist—the wrist…OF SCIENCE!)

The missile is about to launch. Nearby there is a piece of cheese, a shoehorn, a goat, and Mars…yes, Mars. Go!: I place the shoehorn on my head, imitating a female goat. After gaining the goat’s trust, I convince it to ram the rocket, redirecting its aim to Mars (durn you Martians!) After that is finished, I sit back and enjoy a well-deserved slice of cheese. Mmm… cheesey.

(Joke’s on you! That was MARTIAN cheese!)

What is your all-time favorite movie?: Lord of the Rings. In my opinion, the best movie ever made.

(That was a THREE movies…but I’m gonna let it slide on account of them all being so damned awesome)

Funnier: Grumpy, Tardar Sauce cat or Russel Brand?: Tard! How can you not laugh at that little grumpy face?

(You’re right. It’s true)

Favorite catch phrase?: “That’s my momma!”

Why is a duck?: A duck is a duck is a duck is a duck…

(Unless it’s a horse of course)

Tell us about your worst day ever: The day Vorpal_Steak stopped answering my calls… 

(I blame my voicemail. It eats things.)

Did you expect the Spanish Inquisition?: No one expects the Spanish Inquisition.

Were you expecting this question? (Submitted by 123aaa786): Were you?

(I don’t know…WERE YOU???)

Something most Kongregants don’t know about you: This one time, at band cam-

And, now, a journey into the mind…of some numbers and letters. Really, this is just a counting and spelling lesson!

Name: People seem to feel inclined to call me Parker.

Country: A place called Canada.

(No, I believe it’s called “Mooseland”. Duh)

What do you do for a living?: I’m a first year mechatronics engineering student, but I’m currently on a four month co-op doing software testing and data analysis.

Origin of your username: A lot of the games I used to play online many years ago were arcade style games, and the high score systems they had were the kind where you just enter three characters for your name. Being the creative kid I was, I defaulted to using “123” and “aaa” for almost all of them. When it came time to make a username for websites (can’t exactly remember where I first used it as it is now), I decided to combine them, and the addition of the “789” was simply to balance it out a bit more.

(I used to enter “poo” and “ass” And that was just last week…)

What brought you to Kong?: I used to play games on a few other sites many years ago, one of which was AddictingGames, which introduced me to Platform Racing (the original one), which introduced me to Jiggmin.com, which introduced me to Kongregate Racing, which brought me here.

Favourite game on Kong: No contest, it’s Azul Baronis, it’s one of the few games that I used to play before I was on Kong that I still play.

What room(s) do you frequent? I’ve been a resident of The Red Bucket for a few years now, and I occasionally visit Labyrinth.

If you had the power to do so, what TV show would you revive and renew?: “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” for sure, I watched every single episode (again) last semester. It wouldn’t be the same without the same cast, but I feel like it could still do pretty well.

(Are we talking the American or British version?)

What is the worst movie you’ve ever seen?: I try to avoid watching bad movies in the first place, and if I do watch anything bad I try to block it from my memory, so I really can’t think of one right now.

Hobbies: Kongregate (there’s a shocker), coding random small programs for my own amusement, Rubik’s Cubes (I can do up to 4×4×4, haven’t tried any larger yet, but I’d assume it follows the same strategy for the rest), sudoku, basketball, darts, and golf.

Vampires or zombies?: Vampires make for much more interesting films (Van Helsing, anyone?).

(As long as they don’t sparkle…)

Finish this song lyric: “Gunshot, police line, you’d better not cross…” It makes it harder to Google the lyrics if they’re not right, from what I gathered it’s “Caution, police line, you better not cross.
Is the cop or am I the one that’s really dangerous?” Not sure if I’ve heard this Green Day song before though, not really a huge fan of them.

(Whoops, my bad—I got them wrong. But you cheated!)

What do you want to be when you grow up?: Going off of the program I’m in in university, I’m going to let people make up their own conclusions.

(So you want to be a puppy?)

The ship is sinking and you’ve got five minutes. You have a pogo stick, one match, a koala bear, and a can of soup. GO!: First, I give the koala bear the pogo stick to keep it entertained while I ready a life raft, and then, once it’s ready, I start to row us a small distance from the boat (can’t leave them behind, of course), but not before using the match to light the ship on fire, so that the smoke might signal any potential rescuers as to our whereabouts. The soup will be consumed if necessary.

(Nope. The koala ate the soup.)

What is currently queued up in your music player?: Would it disappoint anyone to know that I don’t have a music player that I have a playlist in? Some of the things I’ve enjoyed listening to lately have been some Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd The Who, and just a bunch of other classic rock stuff in general. And I do usually listen to albums and concerts in full rather than select songs, so I’m glad that so many of them are uploaded in full on YouTube.

(Youtube: The ultimate music player…and cat video player…)

Funnier: Cats or birds?: Cats, from personal experience, having owned three before and seeing what kinds of things they get themselves into.

(It was a trick question—birds are most decidedly unfunny.)

Um, you stepped in something: You placed something in my path of motion.

(Ummm…that guy over there did it!)

Who was the better pirate: Jack Sparrow or Captain Hook?: Jack Sparrow, Jack was eaten by a kraken and shrugged it off as a little thing, Hook couldn’t even let go of the fact that just his hand was eaten by a crocodile.

And, while we’re on the subject, pirates or ninjas?: Pirates, because they do what they want, and they’re free.

(I had to pay for my pirate…)

If you could create your own cult, and have everyone worship you and it, what would your cult be about? (Submitted by Mossystump): I have enough trouble chatting with people on Kong, let alone talking in front of groups of people in real life, let alone having a cult following who I’d probably have to speak to, so probably a following of people who are perfectly capable of deciding things for themselves and not having to always listen to me, but who still like to talk to me because they’re not really followers but more people who just like my company, and are more like friends, so not really a cult at all if you break it down enough.

There you have it!
