I have no opinion either way on the whole papa’s series, but the discussion is clogging the thread, which is probably making it more difficult and time-consuming for Greg to use this thread for it’s intended purpose.

I don’t care what gets badged, why it gets badged, or who hates/loves which genres…

All I want is more than one person making badges.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate forums need serious improvements

TL;DR. -1

But seriously… I agree with what you’re saying, and I too would appreciate a newer, faster, stronger, better forum on Kong, but I have a slight aversion to change, and I’m content with how it is now.

Kong has had those in-chat announcements/reminders for as long as I can remember, but they only use it maybe once every couple of months.

I have yet to watch a pewdiepie video, but I think it’s safe to say the OP is correct.

Topic: Kongregate / Random advice from Gravey: Being too nice and welcoming can totally ruin a chat room.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here… but if the old regulars are fine where they are now, and the newbies are fine where they are now, then I don’t see the issue.

You also say that regulars didn’t do enough to get the newbies to leave, but realistically, there’s no good/proper way to get people to leave, even if you are a mod/RO.

Topic: Kongregate / Random advice from Gravey: Being too nice and welcoming can totally ruin a chat room.

Your post (The OP) was kinda hard to follow, but I know I disagree with the overall goal and most of the supporting points.

As far as I understand, the things that “ruined” the chat, was the fact that nothing was done about the bad behavior, and the regulars becoming less active. I struggle to see how warm greetings and nice words would be a major contributing factor in an increase of users with an unpleasant demeanor.

Keep in mind, causation doesn’t imply correlation, and one point of data does not indicate a trend. Most of what I’m seeing here is an assumption based on one particular situation.

Edit: Though I do agree that being too nice isn’t a good thing. I’m always suspicious of people who are too nice all the time. What’s their angle?! Also, labeling users as “trolls” isn’t good or helpful in any facet.

I expect you have a list of at least 50 forum posters.

I don’t see the problem with them being in the same room. I also don’t see any benefit to them being scattered around.

Topic: Kongregate / Interviews: Master Thread

I did an interview about Realm of the Mad God with the current owners of Realm of the Mad God. Does that count?

Please say no. They butchered that recording (and the game) so much. I can’t even really be proud of it.

Topic: Kongregate / Tiny Mech - Item Challenge?

Originally posted by Bluji:

If I’m not 100% wrong, they are both invisible mobile challenges.

The Duplicator is a character in Run Mobile unlocked by completing the easy badge in Tyrant Unleashed.

And to my best knowledge, I believe that there is a building later on unlocked in Tiny Dice Dungeon that allows your hero to equip outfits, and you can get a Tyrant-related outfit by (speculation) completing the easy badge in TU, again.

I have both items, so as far as I know, this is 100% correct.

Topic: Kongregate / What's going on here?

As far as the whole T icon thing, I remember seeing someone post something along the lines of…

“If mods weren’t supposed to talk about it, they shouldn’t have been posting in the thread at all. Instead, most of them were flat-out lying or basically calling people crazy for having reasonable suspicions.”

As I remember, that post couldn’t have been any more correct.

In regards to the rest of the original post, I’m struggling to understand the purpose of the post. All I’m getting out of it is that the OP didn’t like the staff’s decision to not hire someone, and that most mods are attention-seeking no-lifers.

Topic: Kongregate / Whats the age liimit for being a mod

I think I recall hearing about at least one user who was underage when they were modded. I don’t recall who it was, but I have no reason to think it wasn’t true.

Topic: Kongregate / Permanent Mod needed, Chat room is Bat Country, serious thread, very long Post

I read all the posts. Most of what crawl said was already covered in other responses, or he was just stating his feelings/experiences on the room/situation/responses in the thread.

Edit: The fact that you posted your assumption that I didn’t read the other posts, only reinforces your ability to distract from the purpose of your own thread.

Topic: Kongregate / Permanent Mod needed, Chat room is Bat Country, serious thread, very long Post

About a week ago, I was modcalled (along with several other mods) into the room, I was there for about an hour, during that hour, I received PMs from 5 different users all saying pretty much the same thing…

[paraphrase] “This place needs help, is there any way I can help?” [/paraphrase]

To me, this was a rather troubling event. Being told this, so many times, so quickly, was indicative of a couple things:

1. The room is under notable distress.
2. These people probably lack the capability, knowledge, and confidence to actually make a difference in the situation; and they seem to think that being a mod, or having a mod, is required for a positive change to happen.

The fact that this thread exists pretty much cements the first thing; though, like others have established, the OP isn’t really personally invested or involved in the situation, which causes questions to be asked about the motive of the post, distracting from the original purpose of the thread. The fact that the OP is being overly defensive of himself is only causing further distractions and irrelevant clutter.

I think the main thing that needs to be said here, is that mods aren’t a solution to a problem. Accepting this is step one. I think the next step is to not view problems as problems, but as just another thing that’s happening. Something essentially stops being a problem when no one has a problem with it. The next step is to contribute to the whole in ways that involve everyone (Including the problem users), or at least gives the problem less potential to be a problem.

I told some users “I will do what I can to try to help”, and I’m going to stick to that, but I’ve tried to participate in the room as a non-mod user, and the majority of the time, I failed to be genuinely interested in the conversations, and failed to integrate myself into on-going conversations. Which says to me, I’m probably not very compatible with the room.
