That is another point, it changes the rating more than anything in between 1 or 5. I don’t think I am contributing anything to other people, as in, telling them how the game is, if I barely change the rating. I think it does sort games from being better than another, Devlini. It actually does this much better, and efficiently.

1. There is a suggestion thread.
2. I don’t ever vote 2, 3, or 4. I don’t ever go in the middle, it’s black and white, I either do or don’t like the game.

Topic: Serious Discussion / "The Torture Game"

The game is very sadistic, and “messed up”. However, you can’t censor everything. You shouldn’t censor anything. If you want this removed, then why don’t we automatically censor every swear word on the forums and in chat. And while we’re at it, we should remove all games that have a bad word in them. When I was 13 my mom didn’t want me hearing bad words, or reading bad words, but there are still games with bad words on Kong. So, we can’t save every 13 year old from the things their parents don’t want them seeing. Censorship is stupid anyway. The only thing that should be censored here, are porn games. Those have their own places, and people don’t derive pleasure from them in the same way they do with other games here. If you catch my drift.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Kongregate Love - Serious Online Relationships

Well, a few things. I don’t think they’re still in the infatuation phase, because people after 2 years don’t stay in that phase. I think they just love each other. I am a cynical man myself, so before my relationship, I believed that people having relationships on the internet were lame, but now that I see how things go, I don’t think that anymore. I don’t have a ton of friends, and of the ones I’ve told, there is a lot of teasing, but I have a much better thing with her, so the teasing is worth it.

My family ALSO teases me a lot about it, but I don’t care, it all seems pretty light hearted, and in the grand scheme of things, if it works out like I know it will between Brianna and I, then they’ll be the ones with egg on their faces. It doesn’t really matter at all. As long as you are happy. But, it is hard when people you care about, don’t support you. My immediate family is very supportive, and like her. But, my non immediate family has no first hand experience and is telling my parents to make me break it off, that it’s un healthy, for multiple reasons. But they just don’t understand what it’s like, my parents were skeptical at first as well, but when they witness how we interact with each other, it is all gone. So, the best way to deal with people being nay sayers, is to show them.

Also, I don’t like IRL, either. The internet is real, but if you think about it, it is hard to think of another term to say that. The internet obviously is real, because it let both of us meet awesome people and be very happy. And the first time Brianna and I met up, it was awkward for 15 minutes, and then we were all over each other. So, it’s all good in that area.

Also, I realize your realism, 2032, but I think that internet relationships/long distance relationships have a higher chance of succeeding, because people know each other more, and don’t go for the physical things first. But, another factor contributing to the longevity of relationships like these is the fact that this is sort of training to deal with hard things. in around 2 years Brianna and I hope to live together. After the last 3 years, when we live together, we can’t possibly be sad! Nothing is going to be worse for us than what we’re going through right now, and it isn’t that bad, routine visits and we talk on skype all day, every day.

What? Can you go into more detail?

I concur. But I think what is the norm are websites specifically for online dating. But meeting over an MMO, or some other game is what is taboo. I can think of multiple people who have used online dating. Eharmony, OKCupid, Match.com… Those websites are making a killing. Even Jdate! But, what is odd to older generations (Including the people I know who use dating websites) is when youngsters such as myself meet up with people on some arbitrary website.

We are. But, can I request your serious opinion? Because, this will get locked unless you start talking some serious S, dawg.

The legality of doing those things has prevented me from giving her what you could. So, it was expected… Or, none of that happened, and we can wait.

Why!?! WHY!?! You have to do something sexual first, anyway. And since that hasn’t happened… You can’t do anything. Do you have her IP address!? You must now everything about her as well!

I met my girlfriend, Brianna, on the internet. We started talking, and it is better, because we fell in love before we even saw each other. I was more reluctant to show her myself than she was, but that was okay, I think. I knew I wanted to be with her, and it was an added bonus that she is incredibly attractive. We only live 300 miles apart, so we don’t have much on you guys, and we just saw each other for the first time in May, and then June she came, and she’s coming July 23rd. We’ve been together almost 7 months, which is quite a long time, not as long as you guys, again, but still. Considering that we see each other a bit more often, and waited less time to see each other, I think it is good because you get all aspects of a relationship, and not the perfect (except for not being close) relationship that you get online.

I am 15 and she is X [Jesus, you guys.], a lot of people say that it isn’t good, but we’re fine. We don’t do anything illegal or stupid, and we most certainly defy what other people think of us, including parts of my extended family. The hardest part is when people presume, mainly on our age, and secondarily on the way we met. What people don’t know is that getting to know someone before you drool over their beauty is quite important. It is harder to get something meaningful in a bar or somewhere else. It also has the advantage of not having a first date, awkward as balls. But the first skype call is also awkward, lots of nervous laughter.

We primarily use Skype to talk, but we do have each others phone numbers for when we’re not home. We also use letters, as a fun alternative, but not for vital communication. I am not ashamed to admit that the skype call I am on right now is at 20:8:45. 20 Hours, 8 minutes, and 45 seconds. We fall asleep together. We watch shows together (3… 2… 1… Go! To synch them) on hulu and when we download things. We send each other flash drives of music and shows/movies we want to watch. We also just talk, and play games. I love talking to her, and I love seeing her. She’s even more beautiful in person, but skype suffices for the times when we’re not together.

Leaving is also very very hard. I cried for a long time, and the train ride (Cheapest mode of transportation) is almost 16 hours.

One thing I can do without is dropped calls and crappy internet. Most of the time the video/audio are high quality. I think we’re going to last for a long time. We’ve never argues or gotten upset with each other, which is almost miraculous. We’re living proof that internet relationships do work, and thrive. I’d never be able to find a woman in real life anyway, too ugly/timid.

So, Yottabyte, for some clarification, you two are together? Did you meet on Kong? And, as we’re all asking ourselves, “Are you hitting that?”

Amish people have beards under the mouth. They never go over the mouth, and also, you look more jewish than amish. Get your “-ish”es right.

I love being really vague! Can you just tell me, is it that chick you totally want to nail?

Also, post count is very insignificant, I think 2000 posts is a lot, and I know like 500 of it is spam, or inane, I can only imagine the amount for 10,000 posts.

How is his career brilliant? And also, I still don’t get why I should check it, I have, and I notice nothing but a sweet ass pyro sculpture.

Oh shoot! Sorry! I did not notice, I haven’t checked my email either. 2 things though,

1) What am I supposed to notice?
2) The thing that is wrong with seeking attention is that it also comes with a lot of other bad characteristics, such as narcissism. And it is also really annoying when people blatantly ask people to tell them how cool they are for some achievement, or in this case, perceived achievement.

You don’t want the thread to get attention, you want attention for yourself. You wouldn’t make a thread all about yourself if you didn’t want people to say nice things to you and tell you lots of ego stroking things.
