Topic: Kongregate / Disappointed in Kongregate

Originally posted by greg:

I’ll keep a closer eye on Badge of the Day in the future. I’ve long had the mentality that if a badge is broken I’d know about it already, but the site has just gotten so big and some of the older badges are visited so infrequently that this is now a dangerously faulty assumption to make.

To clarify 2 points, I do have oversight over BotD (so blame me if you want), but no one else from GameStop is involved with it in any way.

We’re improving the algorithm that auto-populates the badges in advance, to avoid doing obviously annoying things (like populating MMO hard badges during the week, for example), and make Greg’s work populating/choosing the Badge of the Day a little easier.

We also learned from the Whiteboard TD broken badge issue, and we’re taking steps to avoid having that one happen in the future with Badges of the Day.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: CR 2011.06.21

For the feature “Users can now locate Facebook friends with Kongregate accounts, as long as they’ve linked their Kongregate account to Facebook”, we’re starting by suggesting Facebook friends to add as your Kongregate friends when you first link your Kong & Facebook accounts.

In the future (ie. really soon) we’ll be adding this as a feature for Kong users who have already linked their Kong & Facebook accounts, but right now it only appears as part of the “link your Facebook account to your Kongregate account” process.

CR 2011.04.19

Developers:

- You can now trigger the Kongregate registration lightbox from your games. This new API call is documented on the Handling Guests in Kongregate Games page of our Developer API documentation.

Users:

- Don’t know where to redeem your Kreds you got from the PowerUp Rewards site? We’ve added a link to the redemption page from the Kreds purchase lightbox.

- It’s now easier to find the button to link your Kong and PowerUp Rewards account. When you hover over the link link my account button, the cursor changes to let you know you’re on the correct button.

- Have you noticed that chat now loads differently? We’ve reduced the time it takes to get into the chat rooms to talk with your friends!

- We have removed any mobile Favorites from your public profile page, but don’t worry — you can still see them in your Favorites list by clicking on “View all X Favorites” from your profile page.

Looks like a new one will be put up at the start of each day (Kongregate time), and last all day, but that’s just speculation.

You’re correct — a new Badge of the Day will be chosen and posted at the start of each day, and it will remain Badge of the Day all day long (Pacific/Kongregate time).
