Topic: Serious Discussion / Atheist forced to go to church

One of the ways I finally convinced my parents to quit griping at me about going to church with them was explaining that it was so boring that I was having a hard time not falling asleep in public. They didn’t like the idea of being that family with someone asleep in the pew.

Wasn’t being contrary, either. I really did have a problem with passing out in church.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Nudism: Inspiring, or pointless

Originally posted by NickWalker12:

Not sure how factual this is, but I’ve always been under the assumption that less sexual repression is a good thing. Being nude all the time would help shift peoples opinions of nudity from objectification to normalization. Thus, I’d assume violence of a sexual nature would go down. I’m feeling lazy, but if anyone has any stats, would love to read.

I don’t know… there’s a big gap between seeing more skin and getting laid more often. Just being used to nudity in general isn’t going to remove the desire to shag. Let’s not forget that the animal world is pretty naked. Prostitution and rape still occur in non-human animal societies.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Pagans viewed wrong and the god/goddess part

Originally posted by SolidSnake6:

…why do christians and the other religious and non-religious people always think of them as evil and satanic or they(in the case of christians) think they deal with the devil…

Some do, but not all of them. I was raised Roman Catholic (I’m lapsed; I am not religious), and never was I taught that paganism was the equivalent of Satanism. I have close ties to a priest who worked in Rome under the authority of Pope John Paul II, and that isn’t the way he discusses pagans.

Do Christians believe paganism is wrong? Of course they do. Most religions view alternate beliefs as wrong.

Do Christians believe paganism is evil? Define evil. Define Christian. There are those who follow Christ who don’t fall under the typical Catholic and Protestant denominations. One of the tenets of traditional Christianity is that God forbade mankind from worshipping other deities. For the sake of argument, assuming the Christian God is real and that command exists, does that make someone who worships another deity evil? I wouldn’t say that is an automatic yes. Someone who was taught that a different deity (or pantheon) was real and that the Christian belief was wrong could very easily be a committed good person. Why should he believe what Christians are saying more than what he was already taught as part of a different religion? So no, Christians are not explicitly taught that paganism is evil. They are just taught that it is wrong.

Let’s turn your question around the other way.

Why do people think that Christians believe pagans are evil and/or Satanists?

Candy knows the answers obviously me, last weekend I had to file 1000 reports on different users all in different chat rooms all for different reasons.

You know… flooding the administration with reports isn’t very helpful since people have to actually read every individual report. If a mute is sufficient since people are handling the person’s presence well enough, leave it at that.

I remember back in the 90s that it was legal in some places here in the US for women to breastfeed in public. Never saw anyone do it, though. The women I knew said they were either too embarrassed by the prospect or just didn’t want to make waves, but they were glad for the progress.

Topic: Kongregate / Happy Wheels

There’s a default filesize limit (20MB? Too tired to verify), but Kong has stated in the past that they make exceptions if the developer contacts them and it’s reasonable. It just takes administrative intervention, and is completely at their discretion.

If you haven’t already rebooted, you can do that or flush your DNS cache to force your computer to look up current DNS entries.
From a command prompt, type: ipconfig /flushdns

Is there any chance your security settings/software are blocking access? Any recent changes to your firewall?

So please i am asking you guys to please put the game o here for us all enjoy it. Thank you :)

If you want a game on Kongregate, don’t tell Kongregate. Tell the developers and owners to the game’s publishing rights.

Topic: Technical Support / Login issues

Do you know anyone who might have the DNS names or IP addresses of the individual game servers? I haven’t played Wartune in months, but there have been outages where mandatory redirects weren’t working right. If you can get the server names/addresses, you can try pinging them to see if there’s a loss of connectivity for you. The primary login server has a different address, which is why it’s possible to reach the login screen without getting to the game itself. Since your browser is in Portuguese, I presume you’re not located in the USA?

Hi. For about a day now I try to login in wartune and keep on geting the same error: Unable to find site:kong_0014«scriptype ,Redirecting to login screen in 3 seconds… I also cannot load other games, such as sands of the coliseum. When I sign out from kongregate and sign in again, it just doesn’t happen. I have to close the window and when I open a new one I’m logged. Any thoughts, please?
Thanks.

Which server do you use? Have you tried connecting to a different one?

I’m sure some of the Europeans here can confirm this, but America is often seen as way too uptight when it comes to sexuality. Americans might not believe it, because our society doesn’t see itself that way. Just look at the levels of sexuality that are considered scandalous in different countries. How crazed do people in America get when there’s a sudden (accidental or otherwise) celebrity nip slip?

If you’re experiencing problems via different websites not affiliated with Kongregate.com then you should try making a technical support/difficulties thread on that forum/website and or contacting an administrator.

Topic: Technical Support / Free Kongpoint for Rogueware

Originally posted by AlyssiaBenar:

Dear Kong team,

i was just wandering around through your free kong point offers and i stumbled over the freeware tool “PC Optimizer Pro” which is offering 200 kong points if you buy a full licence.
This tool is a well know rogueware tool which is faking infections on your pc to let you buy the full version.
In my oppinion this kind of offers should be removed from the free kong point offers as it lets kongregate appear in a bad light.

Greatings.

Many of the download offers are shady, even the ones related to reputable software (the offers often go through third party resellers, and there’s no guarantee that everything’s untainted).

In most cases, issues with TrialPay should be taken up with them, but for things like this I think you might want to e-mail support@kongregate.com or PM an administrator directly. While they don’t monitor the constantly-changing offers, they probably will want to take the time to get specific offers removed once alerted, much like they get intrusive/offensive ads removed from the pool.
