Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate forums need serious improvements

You would moan if you ended up with a hundred messages in your inbox saying MRSEXYX has replied to your forum posts. You already get loads of spam game messages and now you want MORE?

If your post is bad it won’t get many replies, having bad spelling makes it a bad post.

The comments section is okay. I only really look at new comments anyway since the top comments are boring after you see them A HUNDRED FREAKING TIMES.

Not every post needs to go to my inbox; I only want to see the ones directly replying to one of my posts. The threads need to just be better structured (there needs to be a tree of replies). Case in point, post by VforVendetta right above yours: it is directed at no one, offers no insight on the discussion, and should be downvoted so that it is the last comment in this thread.

In addition, your disdain for seeing the same comments over and over again is making my point for me. If a popular comment is at the top of the comment tree, it gives less incentive for people to make that same exact comment. If they do, hopefully their repost is downvoted to the bottom, so you don’t have to sift through it to read the quality ones. Yes, I know the top 5 comments are already displayed, but there is no way to have meaningful discussion about those top subjects. Many times, questions are asked in the comment section of games that are minor and not mentioned in the top comments. There is no way for the original posters to obtain answers to their questions because there is no reply system. A built-in system for developers to post responses to comments on their games already exists. Why can’t it be extended to us?

As an aside, the reply box I’m currently typing into is awful and gives me no formatting options other than a link to a page that lists some common HTML tags.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate forums need serious improvements

I’ve been on Kongregate for 6 years, reached the level cap, and played pretty much every badged game there is (with exception of the crappy MMOs). I’ve been a member experiencing the addition of many site features over the years, ranging from the rise and fall of Kongai and the first Badge of the Day. I enjoy the site very much and appreciate what the developers have done. But, there are two parts of the site I’ve always found atrocious: the forums and the commenting system on games. Even now, as I type this post, there is no preview window or formatting help to give me any idea of what the post might look like. Once I make the post, I’ll have no idea if people reply unless I check back on the post because nothing gets forwarded to my inbox. I can start tpying wtih horirble spleling and msot baddest grmamar and no one can downvote my piece of shit post. If I say something insightful, there’s no upvoting to bring my comment/post to the spotlight either. I don’t even know if this post is violating any terms of forum use because those terms aren’t even easily found. Comments on games are even worse. The constant attention whoring of “+ this everyone can see LOL” in top comments is ridiculous. There’s no good way to reply to comments other than typing @someonewhopostedacommentaboveme. Why can’t comments be like minithreads with replies and individual +/- votes on every post? Is it really that hard to just implement something that almost all sites with content commenting have anyways (Facebook statuses, Youtube comments, etc.)? In any case, I’m going to post this rant and it’s just going to get buried in the other threads soon. Good thing I can just repost with no penalty…

There needs to be a way to directly reply to comments in games. If someone replies to a comment you made (on a game or in the forums) it needs to go to your inbox. There needs to be a way to upvote/downvote forum posts. I’ve made this post before and it might have been replied to, but I’ll never know because no replies ever go to my inbox.

Topic: Technical Support / Rant about high score hacks and comment system

First of all, I’m sure there have been plenty of threads complaining about what I’m about to complain about, but the lack of an integrated search system on the forums makes it ridiculously hard to go find them. Yes I know I can use Google to search the forums, but the fact that it is part of the website is ridiculous.

On to the rant. High score hacks are absolutely ridiculous. Literally every popular game I’ve ever played on this site has some stupidly high number about 10 or more times bigger than the second place score. It is infuriating when you actually work hard to obtain a high score that can only be 4th or 5th on the leaderboard at best.

Also, the comment system on games is horrible. More often than not, one of the “top rated” comments is “this game so gud. thumbs up so dev makes sequel. lol.” But people are going to karma whore anyways and that’s unchangeable. What’s more fundamentally broken is the lack of any way to reply to comments and actually HAVE THE USER WHO IS GETTING REPLIED TO SEE THE COMMENT. WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO TO ASK A QUESTION WHEN YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW IF ANYONE HAS ANSWERED IT? This is my number one complaint about this website. I’ve been on Kong for quite a long time (level 62 from just badges now) and I love the site, but someone really needs to fix these flaws before adding another badge to a horribad screen-too-big money sucking MMO.

Do any of the mods read this thread anymore? We keep asking and asking and there is still no search feature in site. If there is, I can’t find it. If someone has replied to my numerous complaints about lack of one, I still haven’t gotten any personal messages about it. The communication on this website is pretty bad imo.

Topic: Kongregate / Why is there still no forum search?

I’m almost 100% sure this has been brought up in the forums. But seeing as how there’s zero way for me to search for it, I reserve the right to complain about it.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / best epic skill to get?

I already maxed out the battery, I’m pretty sure that took an insignificant amount of money. And correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought you got boxes automatically ever time period (1 minute for bronze, 1 hour for silver, 1 day for gold). I thought that progress had nothing to do with getting boxes?

EDIT: On second thought, those time periods can’t be right, especially for bronze. How do getting boxes work?

Sweet. I just remembered I have only two slots in the garden. Is it worth it to upgrade it anymore or should I just dump everything into epic skills?

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / best epic skill to get?

So I got the 2 billion coins from the gold box. What’s the best epic skill to get? And are gold coins useful for anything other than epic skills and features?

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

so…i didnt take the time to look through the ginormous list of suggestions but i think there should be search function on the forums as well as the site. it would allow for us to find some discussions or guides about those games that we are oh so close to beating or getting a badge for.

ps sorry if this has been suggested already. like i said, i dont really wanna go through hundreds of pages of posts.
