Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate should really invest in re-launching the FaceBook app

I remember the old kong app and it was kind of fun to be able to challenge friends, etc. I may be in the minority of this, but I kind of like the idea of posting badges to your facebook profile, especially if it could be manageable. For instance if you only want to show when you’ve won an Impossible badge, you could uncheck the easy, medium and hard boxes or something to that effect. as far as shouts, whispers, etc, that’s more internal things, not somethng you’d want to show off exactly. Another added bonus of this may be that the posts link back to the game/site with your referrer link, enabling regular users to compete on a small level with the likes of jayisgames and onemorelevel.

Topic: Kongregate / most important badge to get

My favorite was Fish Thankfulness from Dolphin Olympics 2, it was the first Impossible badge I earned. I had gotten so close so many times, and finally one day I got it, my victory dance was quite amusing to my girlfriend. Needless to say, its an extremely fun game and Impossible badges are immensely satisfying.

Topic: Kongregate / Gamestop bought Kongregate Good or Bad?

I’ve loved gamestop for quite some time now (I’m a cheap bastard and buy used games) and I’m really happy that Kong got bought by them. I’m really hoping gamestop will help kong get noticed more, there are more and more flash developers (and people to play their games) online every day and this is such a great place for them.

How can you not like Hentai?

Tinnvec, we’d actually appreciate it if your crowd left. This is a 13+ site, so you shouldn’t even be on here in the first place.
Seriously, kongregate is allowing annoying idiotic 10 year old kids onto here, and it’s annoying as hell.

I’m not sure I understand what you mean, you say that I (a 25 year old) should be leaving the site because it’s 13+ and I shouldn’t be on here? Or am I missing something?

Topic: Kongregate / Hentai Section

Originally posted by ParalysisTerror:

Good point. But, the kong staff could just restrict the porn for anyone who’s 18 and over. But then again, kids could just fake their age just to get the goods.

Right. Without credit card verification or something similar, it is virtually impossible to make sure someone online is “of age”. Not to mention the “acceptable age” for viewing pornography is different in different countries.

That’s why, all in all, I would have to leave if Kong ever did anything like a hentai section. I also have a strong feeling that I wouldn’t be anywhere near the only one to leave.

It is not simply the presence of Hentai that would force me to leave, but the (even more) immature people it would bring to the site. If you think chat is bad now with trolls and spammers and such, just imagine it if there were porn on the site, we’d get every 10 year old who’s mom isn’t looking spamming things like “OMG LOOK AT THIS HAWT BABE HER BEWBS ARE GRREAT [link]”.

Topic: General Gaming / Beat Planet Defender: Apocalypse in 13 easy steps

I’m glad it finally worked for you, BCLEGENDS, sometimes it seems too easy for me because I’ve done it so many times. Also, thechubbs23 didn’t necro this thread, it’s been posted in a couple times a month (about) since I made it. I may not always respond, as there’s not normally a need, but I do still pay some attention to it.

Topic: Kongregate / Kong Registration

Regular users would make multiple accounts to invite themselves and make more points on both accounts, seeing as the person who invites the friend that signs up gets 15 points if he/she signs up.

This is frowned upon behavior just so you know…

Topic: Kongregate / Chat Room Request: Developers / Collaboration

Originally posted by JudeMaverick:

Anyway, room name should be “Procrastinating Developers’ Haven”.

What about “Collaboration Procrastination Station” :P

Also, I like the idea as a whole, but MrSpontaneous has a point about just starting to use one no matter the name. In the end though, I like what you’re doing with trying to get a room to be geared towards collaborators. God knows there’s enough old rooms that still have jimgreer as their owner, I don’t see why it would be an issue to get one renamed and find a mod to hang out there. I’d be one to make that my primary room (sorry FtD!)

Topic: Kongregate / Why is it...

IIRC, greg will take a look at putting achievements on games with a rating over 3.5 stars (unless there are other extenuating circumstances).

After that, the game MUST have Kongregate’s API integrated into it’s coding otherwise, the game cannot report it’s stats to Kong’s servers.

After that, the game must be decently bug free, but again exceptions have been made if the bugs were small enough. most of the time, greg just contacts the developer about the bug (if they don’t already know) and when they fix it, greg badges.

And finally (this affects all the other choices too) greg has to have some time. He playtests every game himself, talks to other good players, and checks out the sore boards to get an idea what levels the badges should be set at; so he’s a busy man with the 1/3 or so of 15,444+ games on Kong that meet those previous requirements.

One last little thing, if there’s a really good game on Kong that doesn’t have badges, chances are there’s a thread where greg explains why.

But Once he gets banned he just makes another account _

Mention this in the report too, Kong may not like to IP ban (it can cause whole cities, counties, and even countries to be banned because they all may use the same IP), but I’m sure they can check for accounts made from a certain IP and ban the ones he made. I’m sure they can do the same with email addresses used and so forth.

In the end, its much less hassle and rather more effective to fill out a nicely detailed abuse report and get back to having fun playing games :)

Topic: Kongregate / how do I report hackers?

Originally posted by erringtonstinks:

i could not find how to report abuse so i will report it here.

If you ever need to report an abusive user, just go to their profiel, and under the “about me” section, there’s a link that says “report abuse” next to “add ____ as friend” and “mute”.

As far as mods being abusive goes, iirc Kong keeps chat logs and it would be easy enough to mention the date, time and room of the offense in a standard abuse report. I don’t personally know goekhan, however I know that Kong is pretty particular about the kind of people they’ll let be mods. That’s not to say mod abuse doesn’t happen, however.

Basically, just report the person from their profile whomever they may be. (greg, I’m so reporting you!!)

Topic: Kongregate / MyBrute Spammer

Has anyone tried filling out an abusive user report one of his accounts? It would be easy enough to mention in that report several other account names of his and exactly what he’s doing. Just go to the profile and click “report abuse” (its nead “add ___ as friend” and “mute” under the “about me” section)

Topic: Kongregate / Ok card challenges are old and boring so start handing out pieces

Originally posted by greg:

but it might be a bit unfair to a premium games developer for us to award items that people might have otherwise bought, thus generating revenue for them.

Perhaps it is as simple as awarding small Kred amounts instead of the items themselves. This wouldn’t ensure the Kreds were spent on any particular game, but it would alleviate the concerns about developers receiving revenue. I’m sure it would never work out as cleanly as I imagine, but it may be an idea to mull over.

Sorry, god_of_war, we weren’t able to keep the alpha saves; the entire quest structure has been rewritten since then and the data isn’t compatible. But there’s a lot more to do in Steamcity now, so you’d probably want to start over anyway. ;)

Please tell me I at least get to keep my epic alpha tester poster for my float. If I were just any beta tester, I don’t think I could live with myself, I need that alpha status! (I’m being funny by the way, but I really do hope we get to keep the posters)
