Yes a lot of people will abuse it. But why not make certain ranks so people with a certain rank can use it.

It’s the people who have been here for the least amount of time that would need it the most. If you have a long standing regular in the room then they are likely to know a mod to call or how to use modfriend. If you did have a system like this it would be the new users who would need it most.

Topic: Kongregate / Very Helpful Chat Suggestion

If they’re not here to punish why do they have a Silence/Ban button?

For when all else fails.

Precisely, it is not a punishment to ban/silence someone it is a way to get the spammer/troll/whatever out of chat and contain the problem.

No, because he will start again when the mod leaves. The mods are volunteers, they’re not forced to stay in your room just waiting for the troll to.. troll. Making them able to see the last 10-20 minutes of conversation would be the best. Don’t try to ruin good ideas.

That’s the point. If you are worried then ask the mod to stay. Any time someone asks me to stay in a room to make sure it doesn’t start up again i do if i possibly can, if not then i direct them to modfriend. Like i said, mods are not here to punish, they are here to prevent, doing so without the use of silences is just dandy.

The mods should be able to see the last 20 minutes of conversation in the chat, in that way the trolls won’t stop right when the mod arrives

er….if the troll stops trolling when the mod appears…isn’t that kind of the whole point? If you are worried that the spam/swear/trolling will start as soon as the mod leaves then ask the mod to stay! If they can’t/won’t then find one who will. The mod is not there to punish the trolls, they are there to prevent the trolling, if their mere presence does that then job done.

Mod calls, well modfriend is your friend. It takes all of 30 seconds to load up modfriend and whisper the first online mod you come across.

I think tails meant that you re-earn the points for the achievements for how many points you have. Every time i log on to the game i get the points for those achievements again. I also have to redo the publicity and ‘the game’ achievements each time as they disappear with each load.

Topic: Kongregate / Ultimate Kongregate Unmodded Room/User Abuse Topic

We do, I know that a lot of us try desperately to get people to know about modfriend and whispers, reporting and muting.

As for secret alts, well we are users too. You are asking us to watch two rooms at once, are we allowed to play the games on here at some point?

Topic: Kongregate / Ultimate Kongregate Unmodded Room/User Abuse Topic

No and no. A lot of trolls do watch the forums, and a title like “unmodded room” on a topic is going to interest them. The visiting mods are just that, visiting. Ever noticed how a lot of people in a room behave once the mod is there but act up as soon as they leave? Clever troll is clever, no spam whilst mods in there, but much abuse once they leave.

Whilst i agree it is useful for us to know which rooms we are needed in, this topic i feel will just lead to more trouble than it solves.

Topic: Kongregate / Ultimate Kongregate Unmodded Room/User Abuse Topic

Ok, first off the second post is brilliant, very clear and a good idea. (Although for abusive game comments only use method 1).

The first post however is a bad bad idea, by listing the rooms which are modless you have effectively given the trolls a nice little list of rooms they can go scream in without fear of being silenced.

Topic: Kongregate / To the moderators of Kongregate chat rooms

I also hang out in a room that is largely unmoderated, the inconspicuous cardboard box.

Heya, I used to hang out in that room a fair bit. I’ll start comming by again and see if i can help some. :)

Topic: Kongregate / some contests should be for higher levels only

Mildly confused as to what that has to do with my comment but heyho :p

EDIT: that was to kyrus comment but, um, kinda applies to Ylliers also. You seem to miss the point, the money was not made by gaining it directly from the user, it was made from the ads etc. So when re4beast was complaining that year long users had not gained anything i was pointing out that, er, actually they had gained a fair bit in the way of free gaming, chat and competitions.

Topic: Kongregate / some contests should be for higher levels only

I like the idea. I mean why should someone who has been on the site for a week be rewarded when someone has been on the site for 1 year and has received nothing.

…except for free games, free chatrooms, free entry into competitions…….

Try going to new games and clicking on rating. That way you will only get the highest rated for the last few months.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Help with Working Offline

Ok trying to learn Hebrew from a dictionary alone is going to be massively difficult. The lack of vowels and different sentence structures is going to cause a huge problem.

You need either a tutor or some sort of on or off-line course if you want to actually be able to read or speak the language. Several words have multiple meanings and knowing the sentence structure is the only way to work out what is being said….not to mention the numerical system…

Are you trying to learn biblical or modern Hebrew as the two are different both in the letters used and the sentence structure and also the words themselves. Biblical is all in the equivalent of uppercase, has no vowels at all, modern Hebrew has vowels added in as dots and lines under and over the letters, but also has a few extra letters that you will not find in biblical Hebrew.

If you try to learn this language solely from a dictionary you will learn only the words, you will most likely not be able to actually understand the language at all.

Topic: Kongregate / "Add as friend" ettiquette

When you add someone as a friend you become their fan. If they add you back then you become thier friend. They don’t need to approve it and you don’t have to ask, although some people will get annoyed if you bug them to add you back.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Catholic Schools

I don’t understand why religions need to have schools. Seems pretty suspect. I’m not at all against private schools, that is. I’m not even against religious schools: I just think it’s highly telling of the resilience (non-specifically) catholic beliefs have to modern knowledge.

You can’t really lump all religions together like that. Growing up as a christian in a country where there is a healthy christian population, very different from growing up in a religion that is a minority. Religious schools mean a lot more for religions that are a minority in that area, for one thing it may be one of the only ways of meeting people of your own religion besides the place of worship. There is also the matter of special practices, if your relgion has a dietry requirement, clothing requirement, contact is prohibited with the opposite sex etc then religious schools are a way of making life easier as these things are taken care of. There is also the important part of making sure your children learn about their heritige.

I know that a lot of this does not count for the schools we are discussing as neither catholicism or christianity are minority religions in the US and UK (these seem to be the main countries being discussed previously in this thread). However there is one intersting point to note for all relgions, it is always a lot easier to become less religous than it is to become more religous. One view is that these parents are actually giving their children greater choice in later life.

I am not particularly for or against relgious schools but i do see some very good reasons why some parents would chose to send their children to them.

Topic: Kongregate / What makes it okay?

Just a weeee small point

Alright, say two people had the exact same ability in making games. It was April Fool’s Day, and one was a staff member while the other was not. They both posted supposed games that were actual rick rolls. Would they both get in trouble or would only the non-admin get in trouble?

um….did they both give something back to the user, you know…like the card you got from watching the movie? (People have forgotten the fact that when this was released there was a breast plate card attached to say, sorry i fooled ya but hey here have a card to say sorry).
