Topic: Kongregate / Selling out?

Obligatory: Oh, it’s this thread again…

If you’re going to blame anyone, blame the game developers for making games and trying to make a reasonable amount of money from them. It’s not like Kong is making these games, they just promote them to entice people to play them.

And if “The way of the future” means “People can play many games without having to pay first, then decide later if they want to pay to gain the other features/bonuses/ect…” then yes it is, and it’s been that way for years. Micro-transactions are a good business model, if they weren’t, you wouldn’t see it so often.

Topic: Kongregate / Seriously, Kongregate?

As far as I know, you get that same “we’ve taken action” message regardless of how much action was taken. It’s very likely that that user was actually banned.

Standard protocol is to ban users who post direct links to material like you described. If there was a different outcome, then there’s probably more to the story.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / How Do I Make Money?

There isn’t really any money in this game. You could be talking about 1 of 2 things.

Gold: The premium currency, is only obtainable as a real-money purchase via Kreds.

Stat potions: The main trade currency in the game essentially acting as money. Stat potions are found by killing gods in godlands or from dungeon bosses.

I recall the chat back when it had 200 people. Throughout the years, it devastated me how the numbers fell constantly, until there were about 60 left, with practically no one speaking. Eventually I left as well.

This is actually due to a change a while back to how rooms are populated.

Before, users were placed into chat the moment they loaded a game, regardless of if they clicked on the “chat” tab. Now, users are only placed in chat if they’ve clicked on the “chat” tab.

The way it was before caused chat to have inflated user counts; now, it’s a more accurate and relevant number since it won’t show people who aren’t actually in chat.

Will you guys take action if we reach the necessary amount of supporters which is a 100.

Please have mods or admins reply to this question.

I’m a mod, so I can reply to this question!

I don’t know, and neither do any of the other mods, but the most likely answer is “Probably not”.

Swagbucks free offer for 200 kreds.

At first, I was deterred by a name like “swagbucks”, but a friend of mine did the offer and said everything was fine, so I did the offer myself and can confirm it’s a very good offer.

If you go on the kreds page and click “Buy kreds”, one of the options on there is “Earn free kreds”. Some of the offers don’t work well, but for the most part, you can earn a reasonable amount of kreds with those offers.

Regarding the question in the OP, I agree that wizard is the most reliable back-up class, followed by knight or rogue if you know how to use them. Max def, spd, att, and dex on it at least, then pick whatever class you want to try out.

I posted the “taken numbers list” as a courtesy. It takes time to update it… time I really don’t feel like taking. If people post a number that was taken or is unavailable, that’s their problem at this point.

I was gone for 2 weeks because of work, and I just got back home yesterday. I ran two more Cdephts since then, still nothing.

Topic: Kongregate / Sometimes, adverts on Kong do worry me!

http://kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/36273-how-to-report-terrible-ads-so-we-can-actually-fix-them

Kong doesn’t have much to do with the ads. AFAIK they use services like google AdSense, which generates ads based on things like the users search history.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / What was your most unfortunate/embarrassing death?

I’m surprised I haven’t posted this here yet. It’s the epitome of embarrassing yet fortunate, since I did win a contest because of this death.

I looked away for like, one second, and it was all over.

I even lost my beloved paladin a week-and-a-half later to a botched abyss rush.

I was driving through Texas and stopped at a diner. There was a good looking apple pie sitting in the display case as I waiting to be seated. Almost at the end of my meal the server asked would you like some dessert I said no. Then 10 minutes later I changed my mind and asked her if I could get a slice of that pie. She said sorry it’s been sold. I still tear up thinking about that pie and what could have been.

A pie that is trying too hard to look good is trying to mask something dark and sinister. It was evil, and you resisted the succubus. Few can say the same.

Topic: Kongregate / [Vote] Kongregate Classic Games!

1. Anti-idle: The Game. It’s been around for as long as I can remember, and has been consistently updated with quality content. I’d argue that it’s the best game Kong has; also, it’s exclusive to Kong, which I personally consider a major point, since we are talking about “Kong classics” here.

2. Platform Racing 2. While I don’t particularly care much for the game, I think it’s the definitive game in terms of utilizing user-created content. Sandbox Hero tried to emulate it and failed, so I think the fact that PR succeeded and is still some-what relevant, says a lot.

3. Dolphin Olympics 2. I get a strong “Tony Hawks Pro Skater” vibe from this game. Which is a good thing, because THPS is awesome. Both games play in very quick sessions, so there’s no need to invest a lot of time into it, and it still gives players that “Okay, just one more try” feeling after each round.

Topic: Kongregate / STAFF, DO SOMETHING OR AT LEAST CLEARLY STATE THAT YOU DON'T CARE

I’d be fine with a simple “You’ve posted too many times too quickly. Please wait 10 seconds to post” message that blocks your post if it’s say, the fourth or fifth post within like, 10 seconds or so.

It would be a little obnoxious to have to re-type a post that didn’t go through because of it, but really, how much effort could you have put into a post that took 10 or less seconds to make?

Topic: Kongregate / STAFF, DO SOMETHING OR AT LEAST CLEARLY STATE THAT YOU DON'T CARE

Trust me when I say that the staff is well aware of the spam issues (Even mods have been complaining about it). I’m pretty sure trickyrodent already made a post a while back on this topic, I’ll link to it here once I take the time to find it.

The main problem with solving the problem, is finding a solution that doesn’t inavertently affect regular, non-spamming, users. They certainly don’t want anything that restricts well-mannered new-users who simply want to ask a quick question, and they don’t want to force users to play games they don’t feel like, just to gain a couple levels so they can post in chat

Topic: Off-topic / What is your favorite web comic?

Penny Arcade.

Sometimes their comics are a bit lack-luster, sometimes they’re absolutely hilarious.

I mostly like and respect them for who they are and what they’ve accomplished. Being the founders of a major company, expo, and charity is no easy feat.

Topic: Off-topic / If you're ever confused as to why people are obsessed with big boobs...

There’s a type of beetle that will try to have sex with empty beer bottles until they die, because they think the bottle is an abnormally endowed female beetle.

Okay, so this doesn’t explain why, but it does show that things like this are a natural phenomenon.

Topic: Off-topic / Does cilantro taste like soap to you?

Not that I know of. That would be more indicative of eating cyanide. Maybe someone is trying to kill you? (Assuming it’s you experiencing this.)

I’d rate it moderately interesting at best; but hey, if you’ve ever eaten something and thought “Why does this taste like cleaning supplies?” (When you know it doesn’t contain cleaning supplies) now you know!

People with this gene say that it makes these foods taste like soap. Now, I’ve never eaten soap before, so I don’t know what that tastes like, but I guess I agree with that.

Topic: General Gaming / yo papa u shuld open a weederia

My mistake. I’m just glad you were able to correct it and elaborate.

Anyway. I liked this idea so much, I thought about it even more!

- It would explain why those people keep coming back to Papa’s establishments. They got maaad munchies.
- Since you can make edibles with weed, they could just recycle assets and mechanics from some of the other papa’s games (They’re already pros at that!) and make it work in weederia!
- Later levels, you can start getting into things like oils and vapor liquids. Which opens up a whole new avenue for game-play mechanics! Maybe even add glass blowing. People need their pieces!

If Flipline doesn’t run with this idea, they’d be FOOLS!

Topic: Off-topic / Going to buy a car, have 20k (Update: bought a car)

I don’t know much about cars, but I can share my experience/opinions buying one.

About 3-4 years ago, I took out a ~$14k loan to buy a ‘09 Honda Civic LX. It gets ~30 miles to the gallon, and I’ve yet to have any real problems with it, though I only drive it about 5k-10k miles a year (I don’t know how off I am on that figure. I’d need to check the mileage). Overall, I’m very happy with the car, but I’m also a person who’s happy with anything that can get me from point a to b safely and reasonably.

I do always feel I paid too much. I got it partially used (13k miles at purchase) from a dealership, as I don’t have the know-how to appraise a car or have any friends who could help me with the decision. I also was on a time crunch, as my previous car died on me, and I needed another car ASAP. I really wish I had the time to shop around before I dug myself a 14k hole.

Having debt sucks. I’d personally try to keep the loan as low as possible, spend a lot of time shopping around, and try to get a reasonably cheap car that suites your needs.

Topic: Off-topic / Does cilantro taste like soap to you?

There’s a recessive gene that causes some people to have a strong aversion to certain foods, particularly cilantro and gourds (Cucumber, melon, pumpkin, squash, etc…).

You might even remember a quick experiment during science class, where you had to taste a special piece of paper to see if it tasted like nothing or not.

All my life, I thought I was just being a picky little brat about eating certain vegetables. Turns out I had a legitimate reason for hating those foods.

Topic: Kongregate / How do you deal with power-hungry mods?

If your accounts are getting perma-banned, then it’s no longer an issue with the mod(s). You’ve done something wrong, several times, and the admins had enough of it.

Topic: Kongregate / How do you deal with power-hungry mods?

Just a FYI, mods can’t perma-ban or delete accounts. The worst they can do is week-ban, so nothing they do causes permanent damage (To your account at least. Mental/emotional damage is still possible).

I’m also not entirely positive if older alt accounts are subject to easier bans, because newer alt accounts are subject to a lower threshold for being banned. That’s something you can mention to the admins in the ticket/report.
