Topic: Technical Support / Muting another person

Maybe try clearing your cache to see if that fixes it, otherwise maybe try un-muting and re-muting them, I think I’ve heard others say that’s fixed issues.


EDIT @below: Forgot about that, might be the issue as well.

Topic: Technical Support / Muting another person

Go to their profile, hover over the little blue options gear icon (next to the private message button), and click “mute.” You can view a list of people you’ve muted, as well as games you’ve blocked here as well, if you want to un-mute them later.

Topic: Technical Support / insignificant help

Did you try playing that game on the day that it was the BotD? I heard that others reported issues with it ahead of time and there was a fix to make the badge possible.

Topic: Technical Support / insignificant help

If you requested only the badge ahead of time, and the request didn’t go through until after that was the specific badge of the day, you’ll only have gotten the badge points as that’s all that was requested. I believe that in order for Badge of the Day bonus points to be awarded, the request must be submitted on the specific day that the badge was the BotD, which I don’t believe is true in your case (otherwise, people could send requests at the start of the week for any BotD to be given so that they don’t need to even log in on the specific days). Please remember that requests for anything typically take 3-5 days as is (leaning towards the longer side when they’re especially busy or understaffed, which might have been the case).

There’s also the fact that you could have earned either of the other 2 BotDs that you missed in order to get the shiny. In the future, it might be wise to send a message specifically about the fact that you’re requesting the BotD, not just the badge (those are two different, yet valid requests), or at least to try the other games if there’s the chance that you might miss one like this.

Topic: Technical Support / Kong+

It’s only active for one year after you purchase it, you’d need to manually renew it each year. You can see how much time you have left by clicking the “Learn more” link in the Kong+ part of the site footer. Also, if you’re in the US, I’d suggest looking into the PowerUp Rewards Pro subscription, as it’s cheaper and offers Kong+ as long as you have it active.

Topic: Kongregate / Extended Leaderboards: Top 476,897 [Updated: August 31st, 2014]

Updated again, reduced to anyone with 1,700 or more points, and kept it as just a download link because it’s just a lot more convenient for everyone, in my opinion.

Topic: Kongregate / custom avatars from games

There have been a few games that have had the avatar popup (Remnants of Skystone had it, the Avatar Creator game does, I think there might be a Nerdook game or two that does, but I’m not too sure about that), but it’s definitely not something that’s terribly common. It’s not something unique to games developed by Kongregate, as anyone has access to the avatar export API.


EDIT: Thanks, FlyingCat, that was probably the one I was thinking of.

Topic: Technical Support / Question

Character limit for forum posts is 65,535 characters (216-1, essentially), not sure at the moment what it is for game comments, but it’s significantly lower (might be something like 1,000). In the case of forum posts, it seems that posts will simply cut anything out that’s over the limit, while other areas of the site (game comments, shouts, whispers) will just prevent them from being submitted.

I’m looking for a 2d 1v1(computer) fighter game that I’m pretty sure I played on Kong. There is alot of different maps and in game you can pick up different weapons such as guns but swords i think aswell. You can change how you look by replacing the head and body of you guy. Most(all?) of the characters are short and round looking. You had to unlock new maps and characters as you won the last one. If any of you guys know it please let me know :)

Might be Chaos Faction 2, or the first one (which apparently is broken on Kong).


EDIT @below: Awesome, glad I could help.

You could post in the What was that game called thread. Also, it might be worth looking through the rhythm games tag to see if it shows there.

Topic: Technical Support / I now hate the site

You should read through this post, noting the following:

As long as you keep your information safe and secure, your account will be safe and secure. In the event that your account has been compromised, we can not guarantee we will be able to retrieve your account. In the past we were able to do so, but as the site grows, we must rely on our users to be responsible for their own accounts as it takes up a lot of our time when users repeatedly have their accounts stolen. Never give your password to anyone, for whatever reason.

You’d need to be able to fully prove that the account is yours, you cannot just ask for them to change the email address to yours, since if they did that without any proof anyone could password recover anyone else’s account, which wouldn’t be good.

Topic: Kongregate / 420th kongpanion should be a pot leaf

Personally, I treat Kongpanions the same as I did Kongai cards, or any of the weekly challenges, I really just get them for the sake of collecting, and nothing else (sure, the Kongai cards and weekly challenge items had some use in some games, but for the most part I never used the majority of the Kongai cards, and almost none of the challenge items for random multiplayer games). That being said, at least Kongpanions have the opportunity to be used in more than one game, so there’s a bit more potential for them, though I still expect them to probably peter out over the course of the next year. It’s been nearly 8 months so far, and only 9 games out of over 9,000 (no pun intended) in that time have been released that use them, and they’ve not played any major part in almost all of those games.

Topic: Technical Support / Is there a way I can delete my account?

No, but you can request a permanent ban from IAmTheCandyman, JohannasGarden, or trickyrodent. Account deletions aren’t done for a number of reasons, the first I can think of is if someone somehow were to gain access to your account and request deletion, there’s be no way to retrieve it, whereas with a requested permanent ban it can always requested to be unbanned.

Enlighten me about the “idle” part of that game.

It’s meant to just be a game you open when you want to chat and not have anything else to worry about (paraphrased from the game description), I can’t see how it’s not an idle game (you can also get the badge without moving your mouse at all, if that helps).

Topic: Technical Support / Punishment Proposition

Unfortunately, when inappropriate links are posted, there are different categorizations for what will happen as a result. For a pornographic link, as was posted, it’s an immediate 1-week ban, since that’s on par with as serious of an infraction as can occur. In the future, if you’re going to post any links in chat, make sure to check them beforehand.

If Kongregate makes an exception for you, then others would have the right to ask for them as well, which would defeat the whole purpose of the rules being set in place (there have even been mods who have done the exact same thing that you did, and they were banned the same as you were, it happens and needs to be lived with).

Topic: Kongregate / STOP IDLE GAMES

Personally, the majority of my time on Kong nowadays is spent just chatting with friends, I’m not so much concerned with playing games or getting achievements (especially as of late with the questionably low amount of badges being added). So rather than load up a random game and sit on a random screen while I’m chatting, I prefer to have an idle game open where I can just click a few buttons every few minutes between chatting. What you need to learn is that different people are here for different reasons. If you’re here primarily for gameplay and not so much the chat, then obviously idle games serve you no purpose, but they’re rather valuable for people who would like at least something of moderate interest for low focus to be going on while they do other things.

Topic: Kongregate / Extended Leaderboards: Top 476,897 [Updated: August 31st, 2014]

Updated results for the past week. I’m going to be a bit busy today so I didn’t want to waste time messing around with Google’s sub-par spreadsheet service for right now (it’s really just a hassle to use with these sized sheets), so I just put up a download link to the full Excel sheet in the opening post (as well as here). It’s a 28MB file, which shouldn’t be too much of a hassle to download, and it’s much, much easier to search for your username in it, and just work with it in general, as opposed to using Google Docs. I might stick with this, or might go back to Google Docs, or might use another spreadsheet host if I can find a decent enough one.

Yes, it does have API, and Anjillie even went through the trouble of doing the steps outlined in the opening post to confirm what the submitted stats are (I checked as well, they are there).


EDIT @below: Then there’s no reason for you to say that it doesn’t have what it does. Unless you’re referring to another post, in which case you should be properly referencing.

Topic: Kongregate / RETURN TEXTILE TO ACCOUNTS

Originally posted by kadleon:

Just to clarify about the limits, after you cross 40 hyphens (40 won’t break anything), profile textile breaks. Forum posts seem to have a limit of 45, however. (It seems 123aaa789 and adv0catus got a bit confused about that)

edit: nice edit >:

Must have changed fairly recently then, because I know that forum posts, profile shouts/whispers, and profile descriptions used to stop formatting Textile correctly after about 20 hyphens were used in them. Either way, they’re still almost always unnecessary (you can use a number of other Textile formatters to create line breaks, and other characters for whatever other purpose they’d serve), and my proposed fix still stands.

Topic: Technical Support / How do you change your username

For various reasons, technical or not, username changes are not allowed unless the name is deemed to be inappropriate. You can have the capitalization of letters changed, but apart from that it’s assumed that people will pick names that they won’t have any problem being associated with.

Topic: Kongregate / RETURN TEXTILE TO ACCOUNTS

Textile does not function when more than about 20 hyphens are present, that’s the issue with your profile. Rather than using an entire line of them for a line break do the following:

Paragraph 1.

***

Paragraph 2.

That will generate the following:

Paragraph 1.


Paragraph 2.

It has the benefit of creating a rather nice line break, as well as not contributing to the hyphen limit.

If you have any other question, feel free to ask me, I have a decent amount of experience with Textile formatting, so I know generally how to avoid a lot of the more common errors that people run into.
