Topic: Kongregate / Split test: New navigation!

The “Forums” section is not very visible. Many new Kongregate users don’t even know that the forums exist because they are so hard to find.

This is what I think the biggest issue is. Less visible forums means less people join the forums which could easily cause a lot of good communities to diminish and eventually disappear. Sure it’s two clicks more for forum regulars, but it’s far likelier that newer users won’t even see the forums, especially Off-Topic, Serious Discussion, and Forum Games which seem to be the most active forums, yet are at the very bottom of the forums page.

As for being in the minority, look at who is having issues with the update. All the currently active forum mods of Off-Topic do not like this change. I think it’s considered appropriate to say they are Room Owners in their own right (as in they work to stimulate and better the community), so when they unanimously agree that a change is in the wrong direction, it should be looked at quite closely by the administrators of Kong.

There is plenty of room where redundant things are shown. You could easily get rid of the unread button and the profile button. I’m sure others could come up with more to cut or re-size to be able to fit a few more of the forums at least.

Topic: Off-topic / What is "vore"???

Vore is a sub-genre of guro (doesn’t necessitate guts, but it can have it.) in which the focus is the fetish of devouring and swallowing the subject. A common scene for vore pornography is a naked female being swallowed whole buy a snake.

Topic: Off-topic / Photography

Found my flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/56584815@N08

I haven’t uploaded anything to it lately because I’m mainly working in film and it just became a photo repository for things I had to get to other people.

Edit:

so I don’t know you are talking about most of the time

I’ll try to fill in some blanks then.

Composition is the way you fill your photograph will content. It includes your framing which you can change by moving around to unique or unconventional means. It’s like how you can take a picture of someone else at eye level (very boring composition-wise) or you can get higher, lower, etc. The photographs will have the same person, but will be more interesting depending on how you compose them.

Post-production editing could be most easily compared to how people use Instagram to mess with photos. It’s adjusting tone, brightness, contrast, and other aspects of color/detail. Photoshop is the most commonly known editing software, but there are several good programs to use. It’s great for touch-ups, skin smoothing, and whatever else needs fixing after everything is said and done.

Topic: Off-topic / Photography

No serious photographer would use Tumblr.

As for your flickr, it is a little lack luster.

Your sky is blown out in most of your earlier work, but you seem to have gotten better about it in your recent photos.

The bear thing has absolutely no appeal and would only be appropriate on a place like facebook.

Your composition is fair, but you need to get closer for many of those photos. Don’t be afraid to take a few steps toward what you’re shooting.

Level your horizons for landscapes through cropping or otherwise.

Pentagonal bokeh is gross.

Get some sort of photoshop/lightroom equivalent and tone these photos. You need to learn post-production editing. (HDR, desaturation, and other BS Instagram editing techniques are crap, even if customers eat it up.)

Browse some forums like 4chan’s /p/ or whatever suits your fancy. People with experience show you new things you can do or try.

Shoot some portrait stuff. You seem to be good with macro/accent shots and you might like it.

Topic: Off-topic / So the girl I'm dating told her parents that I'm agnostic..

She was pretty stupid to tell them that. You’ll just have to pad the truth if they bug you about it.

(Do you believe in God?)
(Yes, of course.)
(Then what makes you agnostic?)
(I am trying to find my own way, spiritually. I take what churches say and if I agree with them, I put them into my own beliefs.)
Easy.

The below post got a pretty good chuckle out of me.

Topic: Off-topic / A Rant For You All

To be fair, being aggressive like you are being does not help the problem.

And neither does his complaining. All he’s doing is saying he doesn’t like OT and then leaving. It’s annoying, contributes negatively, and is immature.

If you visited /b/ often enough, you should be familiar with the term ‘summer’.

OT is always like this during summer.

Topic: Off-topic / How many electoral votes does Mitt Romney have?

Mitt isn’t drawing enough support to win. He might get close. It might even look like it could happen, but it won’t. If he had ran better in the primaries, he would have had a better shot.

Statistically, (applying what FireAndSunshine has been saying) you have a 3.6 inch penis.

Topic: Off-topic / Why are girls so repulsed by me?

So I’m only statistically unlikely to have a larger than average penis.

I can live with that.

So a man with a 9 inch penis will have to say his penis is 11.4 inches long?

Topic: Off-topic / Why are girls so repulsed by me?

Statistically, yours is closer to 6".

Statistically, your IQ is 100, your height is 5’10 and you weigh 160 lb.

Saying something is typical does not mean that it is always true.
