Topic: Kongregate / [Special Event] Kongregate Live: with Jimp

By the way, in our talk this week, we noted that Jimp didn’t talk a whole lot about his soon to be released game with JayArmstrong, “The Last Dinosaurs” Well, it’s gone from “soon to be” to released.

You can be a dinosaur with a Kongpanion pet, too :) I’m looking forward to seeing what different developers will do with Kongpanions!

Topic: League of Angels / TA broken, late 2nd TA, S2

TA broke during the 2nd half of the 2nd TA on S2, at least.

You could join a party, but after everyone readied and the leader tries to start, we get the message: Log-in failed, please refresh browser

Refreshing the browser and reforming the team and trying again does not fix the problem, however.

Topic: Kongregate / Is RP allowed in Jugon or not?

Originally posted by Klatu:

I never said that, I just said that only excessive RP is not allowed. CiobanuM just did one line of RP, I think that it is fine (the behavior guidelines say: “It’s fine if you want to briefly convey an idea with a pseudo-action (”hugging" as a greeting, “exploding” as expressing excitement, etc.)").

Doesn’t make sense to have ambiguous rules… can an Admin reply and clarify?

I think that the guidelines are not clear on purpose, every room has it’s own identity and some things that are allowed in a room are not allowed in others (I know I’m not an admin, it’s just what I think).

And both of these things are correct. You expressed them well, Klatu.

In some cases, I believe it makes sense to have rules that are somewhat flexible, in other cases, the rules are very firm.

Our rules on posting links (even though you can’t just click on them but have to copypaste, it counts as a link) that go straight to porn or shock sites are very firm. A mod may decide, for a new user on their first offense who they thought didn’t know better or did it by accident, to give a really stern warning and something less than a weekban, but we wouldn’t be okay with them deciding that inappropriate links are okay in their room.

Roleplay in non-roleplay rooms is definitely a more flexible rule. If a mod asks you to stop rp’ing in a non-rp room, you should stop. If a moderator *tosses candy to everyone in the room" or “offers hugs and smiles to all who like them”, or allows others to do the same, I see no reason to tell the mod that they are “doing it wrong” :) Different mods and different rooms may have different customs on this.

There are a few things that, to me at least, really become “excessive rp” in most rooms 1) people rp’ing doing unpleasant things to people—is someone takes out a chainsaw and saws off JohannasGarden’s head, then I think I have a right to ask for that to stop :) 2) really extended rp that takes over chat, particularly if it’s not really that appropriate for chat—the most common examples are 2 people who want to rp and extended seduction scene or a small group that go on and on with the ways they are trying to kill each other.

So, my summary is, “If a mod asks you to stop rping in a non-rp-room, then stop. If the mod allows or even does a bit of what you consider to be RP, trust that they have the best interests of the room at heart, and don’t tell the mod how to mod, please :)”

Topic: Kongregate / missing achivement reports - feedback

Hmm, actually 1) Missing achievement reports are getting handled faster now, because we’ve got someone better than myself doing them :) You should not expect late Friday requests to get done until Monday or even Tuesday. Most of the week though, they are currently getting cleared within 1 or 2 days.

2) When did you notice that you weren’t getting messages? Can you check your profile pm’s and see if they are there but just didn’t get emailed? If your pm’s aren’t getting emailed and you want them to be, check the settings on your profile, both the checkboxes and your email address.

Topic: Kongregate / Permanent Mod needed, Chat room is Bat Country, serious thread, very long Post

Hey, everyone. I am going to lock this thread because it really isn’t the way to get mods for a room. It also tends to lead to arguments and other things that don’t help the situation.

We have talked about Bat Country but haven’t yet found the right people to add as Room Mods. Sometimes the rooms that seem to most need mods are especially difficult rooms to find the right mods for. We’d rather ask users to mute and report until we find just the right people rather than mod someone we have big doubts about, especially in a room that sometimes has big conflicts. Bat Country is also not entirely unmodded, but has two mods that have been active regularly for quite some time.

Topic: Kongregate / I only have a few days left at Kongregate

Besides that, for anyone here, it’s good to remember to keep your email address current. Go to your profile and check out those buttons. The email address that’s stored in there is the email address we’ll send a password recovery token to, so if you signed up with sfjkla;jsdf@djskld.dms because you thought we were going to spam you with dog food ads if you put in a real email address, or if it still has that juno.com email address you haven’t known how to access since 2008, go change that thing before your laptop dies and you go “oh, drat, I don’t remember any of my passwords that I’ve had stored for 2 years”

Topic: League of Angels / Thank You Edge

Edge, I was too sleepy to send you a message the night before last when you stopped by chat to check on people who’d reported losing items during the S4 trouble, but I really appreciated seeing that. As I’ve told you privately before, I think you do a really good job here :-)

Topic: League of Angels / S4 Problems, Issues List Here

Post here, please, as EdgeLoA needs complete info :) Unlike him, I don’t read all the forum threads here, so if there’s another thread related to the recent S4 issues, you can send me a profile pm with a link to it.

Your posts on that thread meant quite a lot to my daughter, who is now 11! Singing and songwriting are her focus now though, but maybe she’ll still draw you that rose someday. She still remembers you :)

Topic: Kongregate / That darn ad

If it’s reducing visible gaming space on the screen, that wouldn’t be our ad. You probably have some sort of malware or adware on your system. If you have Windows, I recommend scanning with Microsoft Security Essentials, then with malwarebytes if that doesn’t get rid of it. You can send me a whisper, check our Tech Support forum, or email support@kongregate.com (preferably with a screenshot) for more help, if needed.

If you’ve already earned a badge, you need to load the game again when it is the badge of the day in order to get badge of the day and Kongpanion credit. They aren’t awarded automatically just because you have the badge.

Did you try logging in while using firefox in safe mode or a chrome incognito window? Which did you try?

Topic: Technical Support / Kongregate not working properly

Hey, have you tried

1) clearing your cache

2) trying a different browser or a chrome incognito window (I find the latter is more reliable)?

If neither of these work, could you please take a screenshot and either whisper it to my profile or email it to support@kongregate.com? It would help us to see exactly what screen you are getting when you try to load kongregate.

Topic: Technical Support / Yu-Gi-Oh BAM - Problem

I find that sending a whisper to konamikg’s profile is better than “game bug” for this particular game. I’m locking this because discussion should go to konamikg or the forum linked in adv0catus’ post above. :)
