Topic: Kongregate / What's up with the comments downvotes?

I am not a troll, and I am sometimes very funny, but I am serious here.

I bumped up the thread because I am troubled by comments being hidden when they shouldn’t be. Once 3 or 4 people voted ‘-’ on a comment it gets hidden, so most other people don’t see them. There are many comments which are legitimate criticisms of games which get hidden in this manner. Why should comments get hidden at all? It only makes sense to me to hide them if they are clearly spam/unrelated to the game, or blatantly offensive.

Topic: Kongregate / "Our Predicted Rating for You"

I’ve noticed the predicted ratings for me are always between about 2.9 and 3.1, so not very useful. This was even the case for a sequel to a game which I had rated 5*. If the span of was stretched out to between 1 and 5, I could at least have an idea of whether the rating system gave me a good prediction. Can Kongregate calibrate the function better? Will we get a Kong reply to this thread?

Topic: Kongregate / What's up with the comments downvotes?

So, what’s new with the “below threshold” comments? Why are they still hidden?

Comments that a few people didn’t like should not be hidden, this is censorship, and it silences minority views. A very bad practice! Comments should only be hidden if they’re flagged as spam or as offensive – and then by a moderator.

Topic: General Gaming / Holier than thou when rating comments?

I would very much like to see the “under rating threshold” system removed. A comment should not be hidden just because a few people didn’t like it – that’s basically censorship. Only comments which are spam or offensive should be hidden (after being flagged). What do others think?

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Bug Reports and Issues

Thanks Lamatiel. The game works fine on edgebee! Since the problems appear here even when I’m not logged in, and others have the same problem, I’m guessing it’s Kongregate that has the fault.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Bug Reports and Issues

Still no joy, I’m afraid. I’ve updated flash, disabled adblock, logged out, cleared my cache, but still getting white or black screens. I’m afraid I’m not willing to install another browser or open an account in armorgames or edgebee just for the sake of one game. Hope this gets resolved soon.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Bug Reports and Issues

Another report of screen going completely white. Game continues, and eventually I got the screen back, but no customers that day since I couldn’t see them. What a shame!

Topic: General Gaming / English

OK, I don’t expect every game developer to be a fluent English speaker.

But is there a way to convey to developers not to confuse the words ‘next’, ‘skip’, and ‘continue’? If the intro is done, you shouldn’t have to click something that says ‘skip’…

Speaking of gold, how can you get any, apart from kreds?

Topic: Kongregate / Featured games selection

I’ve noticed that some featured games do not appear when I log in. For example, in the current selection, I see Game of Thrones (?) featured before I log in, but after logging in it is missing from the featured games, and I have to search for it in order to play it.

Is this a bug? Or is this a not-so-successful attempt at personalization?

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

adv0catus, perhaps we’re not talking about the same thing. What I mean is on every single Kongregate game. On the right of the game, there are tabs for chat / game / achievements / awards, and the ‘chat’ one opens automatically. I’d prefer an option to turn it off completely.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

Suggestion 1: It seems the only way not to see the ‘activity feed’ is not to have friends on Kongregate. That’s really a shame, and I hope you consider changing it. To anybody I recently befriended, for the sake of Outernauts or other games, my sincere apologies, you’ve all been removed.

Suggestion 2: Whenever you go to a game, the ‘chat’ tab automatically opens. I’m sure this is useful for many people, but some, like me, never use the chat. I suggest having a way to turn the chat off. This would save processing power and make it faster to load games on slow computers.

Sorry, but I have another question: How do you use metals and gems to strengthen your beasts?

Thanks Jubiaxk, found them!

Next question – apologies if this has been answered, I can’t find it anywhere:
HOW DO YOU ADD FRIENDS IN THE GAME?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Remnants of Skystone] Does anyone still play this?

I’ve started playing this again after a long break. Not being a guild member, it’s really limited and hard to advance :(
But I’ve decided to give it another go.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] keys and boxers

OK, I now have 19 wooden boxes and 6 ornate boxes. That means 222 pramins for the key to open them, or about 222 days. Nice. I’m going to quit this game.

Oh great, another thing we need lots of pramins for. The most pramins I’ve had was 7, I’ve never gotten more than 2 in one day.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Bugs

I’m stuck in combat! Fighting against Sacrecog, who heals itself faster than I can injure it. Can’t run away because it’s in the infinite dungeon. So it just goes on and on. Will my adventurers eventually just starve and faint?

Topic: Mystic Guardians / Bugs

Possible bug (or am I just thick?): I’m in the bandit camp in the North Desert but can’t find missing supplies. After battling and defeating the chief bandit, I got a ‘reload flash’ type message. Refreshed a couple of times. Yellow arrow still points to chief bandit, he keeps asking if I’ll join the bandits, but no supplies anywhere. Am I missing something or is there a bug here?

Topic: Mystic Guardians / trainer tokens

Thanks! A bit of a shame to be distracted from the regular adventuring to do some ‘token farming’, but I guess I have no choice.
