Topic: Kongregate / [Script] Increase the level cap

I don’t want to promise something that I may not do but be aware that I’m reading this.

Topic: Kongregate / Spring '16 suggestion thread

Kongregate doesn’t care about badges. Greg doesn’t care either, but that’s completely irrelevant as he’s not the one who pays the devs to implement new features.

I’d love to see this implemented. Sadly Kongregate doesn’t care about badges anymore. :<

Topic: Kongregate / [Script] Thread Watcher

That’s a feature I’ll include in the next version. If you know what I mean…

It’s not worth fixing though… With consistency, the amount of whitespace in one line title threads would be horrible given every link is below the title. And I suspect that including that link in the last line (if it fits) is a pain in the ass. If someone has a solution, let me know.

Sure. Do you use those forum links?

Topic: Kongregate / [Script] Thread Watcher

Loading every thread each time you open the community page is the same as opening all your watched threads at the same time in different tabs. It’s possible to do it but not ideal given the time it takes to load all those pages.

Until then there is another quick fix to reduce the amount of searching needed. Is it possible to make the blue icons also appear on the main forums page? This would help all the people who are active in more than one subforum.

This has the same problem. It’s necessary to load the watched threads when the script starts and that takes some time.

EDIT: so apparently Kongregate can serialize threads to json… Download time drops drastically with this so it’s possible.

Topic: Kongregate / [Script] Thread Watcher

So, Tulrog asked here for a thread watcher… And here it is…

The script highlights with a blue icon the threads that had been active since your last check, as you can see in this image:



Every thread has a button to watch/unwatch it, from the thread itself or the forum page. Here you can see the button inside the thread:



There’s a list of your watched threads in /community, that you can access by clicking the My Kong tab. Here you can see the list with three threads being watched:



There’s one thing to consider… Clearing your local storage will delete your watched threads so, be careful about that.

In the future I may implement some kind of periodical check for activity in watched threads combined with KongBot notifying you about changes with a chat message.


Suggestions are welcome. :>

I think this is borderline impossible. There’s no implicit way to know that. Unless the user you want to know about has the script also installed. That would imply some kind of indicators inside the about me (or other public place) to let your side of the script know what scripts the other user has.

But hey, I could be wrong…

This would be a nice script. A little bit complex but nice indeed.

I want stats such as Most Posts on forums all time. Most posts in a month/week/day. Along with what forums you posted on most. What percentage of posts come from which forums etc.


Without having access to the database these things are… Hard to compute, to say the least. Some stats that involve a unique user may be possible to calculate but given the amount of posts you have, it’d take some hours.

Also want stats such as most chattiest chats on Kong along with deadest etc. Most active users/least active, etc. Stuff like that.


These stats are known by Kongregate only. It’d be possible but not with a script.

Also want a script that lets you sort users on chat by Kong level would be good too.


This is doable.

There’s a script to reload ONLY the game. I was wondering if there’s one to reload ONLY the chat. Would be useful.

Why would you reload the chat? I’d like to help.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat needs to be fixed immediately

Hahaha no need to be that mean. Just read the description of this forum and you’ll see why I’m posting this here and not suggesting it as a feature. Posting it in the suggestions thread is not justified as I’ve said early, this is something broken… Only Firefox users can see it, but it’s broken anyways.

Topic: Technical Support / Chat needs to be fixed immediately

Passive agressive Pip… I’m not willing to get into semantics here but this is clearly a usability bug, it worked prior some ghost chat update (when they started testing new timestamps). And are you the only one who adresses bugs to staff?

It’s not a feature, it’s a bug. :L

Topic: Technical Support / Chat needs to be fixed immediately

Kongregate can fix it by including the colon inside a html element. Right now is just a text node at the same level of the “span” message element. Chrome selects everything at the same height which is fine (the selection includes the username), but it seems that Firefox selects the clicked element plus its sibling text nodes at the same level in the DOM tree.

Usability pls…

Look at this…

Can you see what is happening after clicking three times a message using Firefox v. 45.0.1? That useless colon being selected can not be tolerated. This needs to be fixed.

I’m also pretty sure you get Kong points too, but I’m not sure how you get those.

Bouns points are awarded based on ratings, not on gameplays.

Topic: Kongregate / do games devs receive some benefits getting more gameplays?

Ad revenue is proportional to the number of gameplays, so yes, developers benefit from them. The thing is, Kongregate knows that you are reloading the game so doing it is not considered as a new gameplay.

No, people need to know there isn’t a second guy making badges.

I don’t care if there are billions of Gregs or just the original Greg making badges. If they can only create less than 10 badges per month, they are not doing a nice job.
And LouWeed is right. Starlight 2 medium badge, being the same as the easy badge but with a little twist, sucks. Reach the Core’s medium, jesus… Кongregate needs someone new helping with the badge process, someone who has new ideas.
