I posted in the other thread about this when it was last bumped recently, no one’s replied there about it, so I’ll try putting it here too to see if anyone can test it out:

For those of you who have been seeing this issue, I’m going to just throw an idea out there that might be worth trying (it couldn’t hurt, since it either works, or doesn’t change anything). Try clearing all of the games from your blocked list, and then don’t block them again until you get messages from them (which should appear at that point, otherwise there’s something else going on). See if it fixes them after doing this, since I’ve also blocked these same games and haven’t ever seen one of these “ghost” notifications.

1. how would I know which games? I cant see the ghost messages.
2. I have many blocked games. no.

I agree with this, these all seem rather trivial to me.

As far as Game Message spam, I don’t have a problem with it even though I’ve played many of those games. The first time I get a message I don’t like I click “Block” and that’s solved.

again, for some of us, this DOES NOT work. You still get ghost message notifications for messages that don’t exist when you go to the folder

For those wondering, Kong’s policy for developers to send mass messages is here

If you don’t play a game often at all, you can’t receive them.

Here’s a kinda-long summary..


Mass Message Communications
Communicating With Your Players
The Kongregate platform enables developers with popular and highly-rated games (minimum 10,000 gameplays, with at least a 3.75 rating) to communicate with their players to let them know about new updates, events, promotions, and content. These communications can be sent out to current players (anyone who has played the game 3 or more times ever and at least once in the last 10 days) and inactive players (anyone with 5 or more gameplays but who has not played in the last 10 days). You can send out an active mass message at most once every 7 days, while inactive mass messages can be sent at most once every 30 days. Players will receive these messages through the Kongregate messaging system.

I call this an outright lie. I get messages from games I haven’t played in YEARS

So, you’re not going to address anything about the actual post and thread itself? A pleasure, as always, saybox.

you have to understand, that in general, flash gaming is dying. Good game, good developer? They are off making apps for phones.

you don’t get it. For some of us users, the game message spam is EVERYTIME we log in.

All they have to do is make the “new message” information not light up when we get spam.

Even after games are blocked, they still lite up your new message icon. When you go there, the folder is empty.

This, of all things, is why I will never renew kong + when it runs out. Screw kongregate not even helping manage spam from their own game base.

Why do they say they treat everyone equal when one of the advertized K+ perks is priority responses to flags?

I mean, responding to one user’s flags before another based on money is classist!

well when kong + first rolled out, it meant you could expect a phone call at home if you had a big issue. if not that, a reply same day on emails.

Now? over 3 days before I even get a reply to an email. That is now slower than I used to get a reply as a normal kong user before k+ years ago.

We understand your frustration, and we have this bug in our queue. There are a number of different kinds of game messages, so information on what game and message is getting through is always helpful.

ANY MULTIPLAYER GAME! I already posted a list this happens from before! this also happens any new multiplayer game that I have never even played before?

How long do you bots need to make it stop? seriously? TURN THE FEATURE OFF

Yeah, before you skip this read and post “already suggested”, un-glue your hands from the keyboard.

It has gotten to the point where I honestly have NO idea what to do anymore. I’ve seen this same complaint numerous-several times the last year I’ve been helping around in Technical Support. This is not means of needing help, but more on the lines of Kongregate, get your stuff together, it has not only had a sheer impact on me, but many others of who’m I have discussed this issue with. Yes, I did block every game, and still getting those messages.

For the love of god, FIX IT.

- A very unpleased Kongregate user speaking for herself and hundreds of others facing this same issue.

I come back here almost 2 months after originally making this complaint to see its still an issue. Kong you suck. Fix your darn crap. blocking the games does nothing.

Topic: Technical Support / my chat won't load and i can't get achivements

Never mind, figured it out. I had “click to play” settings in order to disable autoplays while i surfed. That prevents the games from loading everything sometimes, even after clicking.

Badges wont load in IE. I can get them, but they don’t show on the game page at all anywhere, I have to check achievement tab to even see what the badges are. chat loads fine.

In Chrome, chat wont load at all, and it doesn’t recognize my premium purchase (gemcraft)

This update also stripped away my gemcraft labryinth premium edition. I have my save game, with 1000’s of levels, all amulets, etc, but can not use premium settings to start a level.

Kong help?

Andrew: it’s possible, it’s too soon to tell. But IF that is the case, it would be because drastic improvements go in. We are potentially looking at a different back end format. Grim was really memory heavy at times, and it caused some performance issues for some players. There have been some exciting things we’ve discussed regarding a solution to this, but I can’t hint at much more than that :)

Shark: I’m glad you tracked some of us down. If it helps at all, some of the Feedback you gave us during the beta process were things we were yelling and screaming about in the background. We were occasionally overridden by previous management, and some changes took longer than we would have liked them to take, for reasons I can’t get into. I know that you found some of the bug fix/feature change issues during the beta process especially frustrating. In the end, the ENTIRE team appreciated all of the insight and advice you gave us. Even if it didn’t always seem like it.

Jinn: glad we could make you laugh! It was a very sad and heavy message to write, I wanted to be sure and inject some humor into it.

Hey, thanks for remembering I did all that. Once you get up and running again I will enjoy playing/helping again. Im flattered you remember.

You post a good FAQ lol. I found out what happened by tracking down a few of you through other websites. Yes starting from scratch would suck, even if I get my money back to spend again in game :P
