Is that a serious question?

Sorry to say, it is, I really do not get why Kong needs to get forbidden. Just because it is the first 4 letters of the site? I am not one who knows everything about Kongregate and when I do happen to be on, I learn new things, so I guess this could be something new to learn as well.

They don’t want people making accounts with “Kong” in the name since it’s a commonly used abbreviation for the site name, and people might try to impersonate staff by having those kinds of names.


EDIT @below: As well as that.

Topic: Kongregate / Daily achievement not counting

If you tried loading the game at around midnight pacific time, and it didn’t connect to chat until after, there would have been a conflict between your client and the server, since your system would report that you loaded the game at an appropriate time, however the server would say that it received the BotD notice too late, so your client would think it worked (thus showing the BotD message), but no points would be awarded.

Other than that, I don’t know why it wouldn’t have worked, and I don’t believe that there’s anything that can be done about it now (there’s an option to report missing BotDs, but I think it has to be done on the day that it’s the BotD).

Is there an alternative?

Kongregate One is the most common alternative, it doesn’t have everything, but still a decent number of the good scripts. You can also manually install individual ones, since a number of them still work.

You could always give the Superior Friends script a shot while waiting to hear back about your suggestion.

Topic: Kongregate / Formatting in Profiles

Strange, to me the * is also doing nothing. How exactly should I use it? Should I need square brackets for these?

Looks like you have too many hyphens in your profile, once you pass a certain amount it stops Textile from working.

Topic: Kongregate / Formatting in Profiles

If you want superscripts to work properly, you need to “shield” it from other text using square brackets. For example:

100[^th^]

becomes:

100th

Textile is a strange language, there are a bunch of oddities that aren’t intuitive.

Topic: Kongregate APIs / How to look at stats that do not display in leaderboards

You can follow these steps:

Originally posted by greg:

If you would like to test a game on the site for whether it has our stats API, load up Chrome and right-click outside of the game window, then click “inspect element.” Switch to the “console” tab. Then type /?debug_level=4 at the end of the game URL. You will now see how many stats the game is reporting and when, in real time, they’re being reported.

This should allow you to see the values of hidden stats.

Topic: Kongregate APIs / What happened to the "Explored Kongregate" award?

Slight bump to answer the question: You can only get the Kongregate explored award on one account, since you said you have it on another one you can’t get it on your current account.

Topic: Kongregate / Cannot view badges on profile from chat anymore?

Also, it seems like the “High Score” in chat is not alligned with the “Chat” and “Game” now.

I dont see high score anymore, I see Achievements instead

That’s what it’s had on games with badges, games without badges (but still with API) still show the high scores tab.

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

Inferno Legend – The first server I tried won’t connect and the other ones I tried said I already have an account.

I can’t get the badges now. :/

Worked for me first try when joining the newest server, the badges are not broken, simply the influx of new users from the badges was too much for the servers to handle.

Update: I just completed an “Easy” badge and it gave me the 10 points instead of the original 5, so is this an update or what?

Looks like you got the Badge of the Day, you get double points for those.

Does anyone ever use WhatPulse anymore? I actually rarely see any changes in the Kong Team page.

I still use it and pulse once a month, mostly just to see my personal trends in usage though.

What does NEW mean in image?

Could be something messed up with the position changes script, since that should only appear when a new name is found that wasn’t in a previous listing. Guess this happens when trying to sort with hundreds of thousands of unique objects. I was going to try working on a better sorting program that would hopefully be more robust, but it’s not a priority.

Topic: Kongregate / Petition to delete 1-upping thread

It’s allowed because post count has no meaning, so there’s nothing really wrong with it. If it’s going to be used for something in the future, then I don’t see an issue really. Then again, if post count doesn’t mean anything, why not use a dedicated alternate account specifically for the thread.

Try the Character-limit script, I believe that it still works.

Its nice to be able to easily see mods, but its rare I need to really need to know they are there so much that they push out my friends from the top of the list.”


Unfortunately, while we understand that you would like to see you friends above moderators and admin, we want to make sure that mods and admin are easily visible and accessible to all users.

I’m not entirely sure if it still works, but the Kongregate Superior Friends script places friends at the top of the chat list.


As for my own suggestion, since sub-forums are a thing now, and since suggestions are trying to be categorized a little better than before, why not implement a suggestions sub-forum? I think it’d allow for a little more in depth discussion regarding each suggestion, since individual threads allow for a defined topic, while a single thread for all suggestions basically means none can be discussed too much without getting in the way of others.


EDIT @below: Well, I’m fairly certain that people had brought up the suggestion for a forum dedicated to suggestions before, all I’m saying is a sub-forum instead.

Updated for the past week, now users with 800+ points. I’m starting to experiment with other possible tools to use other than Excel, that will possibly be able to handle more data than Excel can, which will allow for the amount of users displayed to grow past the million mark (if necessary).
