Topic: Technical Support / Account with $75 in kreds deleted for """""trolling"""""?

The issue here is that an account that one has paid for one is less likely to use for trolling, and I think it goes without saying that Divitionary thinks it has not trolled, and thus should not have its account deleted or banned.
When it comes to the rules, the “may cancel your Account and delete all User Content associated with your Account at any time, and without notice, if Kongregate deems that you have violated these Posting Rules, the Terms, the law, or for any other reason” is just a way of saying that they are aBholes. Coool people would give you a chance, have a fair trial of some sort, not just do, and not even bother telling you. That is aBholeneB taken to facebook levels, and I always thought better of Kongregate than that. So if you see this, Kongregate, please take it into consideration, and please be less of an aBhole, your aBholineB.
(The “B” is a german double S).

Topic: Kongregate / Tag Suggestions

What makes a tag approved or not? Why could I make up “metroidvania” that fit, and not “boardgame”? Besides, if you can’t make up ones that fit, then the alternative of doing so seems worthless to me. I can understand that it would be nice to be able to stop trolls and the likes of making up unfitting tags, so if that is the reason why this “bug” appeared, why not make it so that we can still suggest tags for specific games, but they have to be approved before seen.

Topic: Technical Support / Tags function broken?

I wonder if the tag function might be broken. I seem to no longer be able to add new tags. I want to make tags for “board games”, “nes” and “snes”, like I made one for “metroidvania” (which also seem to be broken, since many games that are tagged metroidvania doesn’t show up on the search, for instance the Robot Wants series).

I tried to add “board game”, “snes”, “nes”, for instance, but the system seems broken. Do you know what’s up?

Topic: Technical Support / Game tags not counting

I have tagged a lot of good metroidvanian games with the tag “metroidvania” (I wonder if I actually coined the tag :D). Quite a handful of them, actually, but when I search for games tagged “metroidvania”, only eight show up. What is the deal with that? The Robot Wants series is a good example of games with the tag, that don’t show up in the search, in case that can help you find the cause for this mishap.

Topic: Kongregate / [Suggestion] Tags and Search

I also want to have an easy way to search for tags/tagged games. Also, I’ve noticed that when I vote for tags on a game, I see that my (favourite) tag “metroidvania” has been used for 45 games, but when I click the “metroidvania” link, it only shows up eight or nine… Only one of the Robot Wants series… what the fandango is that?

Topic: Kongregate / [Suggestion] Tags and Search

Is there anywhere you can just go and search by tags? I don’t find it, I have to do it the elaborate way, finding a game, and see its tags, then choose one of them, and see what other games have that tag… That shouldn’t be!

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / Search Here First For Answers

AbsoluteZero:

That depends on what definition of “designed” you use. I tend to use words metaphorically, and, in a way, what you describe could be referred to as “designing”, if you just aren’t too narrow about it. And just because something is absurd doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Do you see any good non-sexist reasons for adding gender based pronouns to a language?

DarthKitty:
“They” is a good word for plural, but not always apt for singular.

QuickSilverS:
Coool, thanks! I should make a list over languages without gendered pronouns! :D

That’s because most people (unlike you apparently), aren’t objects. We’re people, thankyouverymuch!

People most certainly are (animate) objects (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object). For some reason, the ones who designed the language found it necessary to have different pronouns for the different genders. We are so used to it we don’t really react, but if someone today would try to make different pronouns for, say, different skin colored people, it would seem very strange, indeed (for instance: “Michael goes upstairs, where ‘brown’ opens the door to ‘browns’ room”, or “Carla is so hungry ‘white’ eats both ‘whites’ and ‘whites’ friends lunch”). “It” is mainly used for inanimate objects, but “it” would also refer to an animal, or even a generic human being. We are not used to not having our genders specified like that, but once we get used to it, “it” will be a perfect pronoun for referring to persons. I have already started doing this, in both english and my native language, norwegian. In hungarian, they only have one such pronoun, that is neutral. I see no reason, other than sexism, to keep “he” and “she” in our language(s). For those of you who want to be as coool and radical as me, please join me in trying to make “it” take the place of “he” and “she”!

I would really like to see my dream woman, Ashi, completely nude, and it WOULD be funny to see her or the others in a burquah, the other extreme. Seeing a naked Popo, however, might raise more questions than it answers…

Topic: General Gaming / Zrox 2nd Hard Badge

Granted, it sure ain’t no endurance badge, but it does require remarkable skill with typing. I had a real hard time, at least half an evening, using a outdated, slow computer. It also has that imp. essence luck, although not as much as f.×. some of dino runs insane speed runs to get that imp. Some shapes and their names are harder/more time consuming than others, and it really sucks to get a screwer upper shape as one or more of the five last. If I have a vote, this badge must be an imp.!

I personally feel a craving for a list where you can see what impossible badges you have (and maybe what others have). Maybe just have a difficulty-ordering option on “my badges”?

“but hopefully that’ll learn you to keep multiple saves.”

Hopefully programmers also’ll learn to make games in a way that make you able to, for example, complete these two last achievements on a save you have already reached the spaceship. There really isn’t any good reason not to, other than for people lucky enough to not fall into this trap to bask evilly to those that did.

(I am also one of those who fell into this trap, and feel I hate this game when it doesn’t really deserve it. That ain’t right! I consider this a bug and pray it will be fixed SOON!)
