Topic: Kongregate / Problems loading games

Hey all—

We just started discovering a problem with some games loading. We’re trying to narrow it down and sort it out— basically, people are getting a plain, dark-gray screen instead of the game.

If you have that happen, post here: game, operating system, browser.

For anyone reading this thread try the following steps:
1) updating the DNS settings: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/
2) flush the dns: http://docs.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/ClearingBrowserCache
3) restart your browser

It did take a bit, but it sounds like things are working fine now.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / **NO KRED REFUND FOR THIS GAME**

Ah, I’m sorry, when you said “KG” I thought you meant Kongregate.

I followed up with KonamiKG and clarified our policy, explaining that we won’t be doing refunds.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / **NO KRED REFUND FOR THIS GAME**

Silas, not sure where you got the idea that we had discussed a kred refund? We’re working with Synapse on putting together a welcome package over in Tyrant Unleashed, but that would take the form of in-game items rather than kreds.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [No, it is not okay to] Destroy T:U

Hey, guys.

So, I absolutely get that everyone is reeeeeally upset and stressed out.

In some ways, I agree with BigL46, that this situation does feel like a breakup. You knew your significant other was seeing other people, and that his/her attention had been largely distracted from you, but you kept hoping that s/he would return and you could be happy again like you were at first. As it turns out, that didn’t happen… and so now it’s a culmination of grief and pain and dashed hopes. I have had breakups like that. No fun.

But that’s an analogy, and like all analogies it breaks down under scrutiny. The relationship between players and developer is fundamentally different. No one expects a game to last forever— or if they do, they shouldn’t. All games end. I sometimes wonder if we should put a notice on every single game from the day it’s published:

Loss, like death, is inevitable. The more you live, the more losses you’ll have. I have lost jobs, relationships, faith, hope. But you know what? The alternative to loss is to stop living. Right now it’s a beautiful summer morning and it’s good to be alive. This song always speaks to me when I think about life and loss.

What you all are going through right now is grief. Before the announcement, you were in denial; you kept hoping against hope that it would change. Now you’re going through anger. That’s an important stage too. Go ahead and be angry. Rant in here. Boycott purchases if you want.

What you should not do with your anger is take it out on other games. Attempting to destroy those games will not bring back WMT. It might get your account banned, though. I understand you all are struggling, but I can’t allow you to damage Kongregate in your grief.

Kongregate’s whole cross-platform approach has been very successful, and we’re putting a lot of resources into developing more mobile social features and generally improving the interface. We’re taking the stuff we learned about forums and interactions and finding ways to introduce those mechanics into mobile gameplay. Everything changes, especially technology. When technology changes, so does the gaming industry. Kongregate is adapting.

Hello! I’m moving this post to our Tyrant Unleashed forum— the General Gaming forum isn’t an ideal place for it.

Sorry ’bout that! Looks like your post was flagged by our forum spam filter. We unhid it.

Topic: Feedback and Problems / 5$ off coupon error

ndcurtis, probably what happened is that your email provider rejected the email because they thought it was spam— that has happened sometimes.

If you had contacted us (support@kongregate.com) right away we could have helped you get it a different way, but now the promotion is completely over.

Topic: Feedback and Problems / 5$ off coupon error

Hello! So, the deal with this coupon (as all our coupons) is that there is one deadline for earning the coupon and a second deadline for using the coupon.

The deadline to earn the coupon was yesterday, June 30. The deadline to use the coupon is August 3.

Many of you are probably finding about the offer from coupon / deal sites, who (obviously) aren’t particularly motivated to explain things clearly. Sorry for any confusion.

Topic: General / [Kongregate feature] Subforums!

Unfortunately, there’s no ability to customize how many threads are shown— it’s 10 per subforum. I did condense the stickies a bit, and move some to other subforums. Maybe Nqss and I can figure out some more condensing.

Topic: General / I've come to a realization!

Looks like this thread is now just for arguing and insulting, so I’m going to lock it.

In general, let’s not start threads designed for trolling, even if the point is to teach others to identify trolling. Regardless of motivations, flaming and public accusations are bad.

Topic: General / [Kongregate feature] Subforums!

You may notice a change in the way this forum is laid out. CW now has subforums! So far, I’ve made subforums for Weapons, Skills and Clans. Bugs and Unofficial Tech Support is for when you run into a weird situation you just don’t understand, or when you have a technical problem and would like help from other players. Creations is for those things that sort of relate to CW, but are also a bit off-topic: videos, memes, art, etc. Of course, there is a General subforum for everything else (including guides, general strategy, and so on).

This will help organize the forum a bit better for you guys, and if you have any suggestions for new subforums, feel free to suggest them here. We can’t guarantee to make all of them happen (since too many subforums will just splinter the community), but we’ll be glad to consider ideas!

Hey guys!

You may notice a change in the way this forum is laid out. LHT now has subforums! So far, I’ve made a General subforum for most topics, Events and Heroes for discussions about those topics, and Feedback and Problems for those who want help or to share a general opinion with the devs.

This will help organize the forum a bit better for you guys, and if you have any suggestions for new subforums, feel free to suggest them here. We can’t guarantee to make all of them happen (since too many subforums will just splinter the community), but we’ll be glad to consider ideas!

Topic: General / Forum

If posts are hidden, it’s usually because of Kongregate (not Kevin). There are two main ways posts get hidden:

1. Another player flagged the post, and we decided it was abusive. The forums are for feedback and discussion, but that doesn’t mean there are no rules. If someone wants to call the devs or another player a #$%-guzzling thunder@&(% the post is going to get hidden.
2. Sometimes, posts are auto-hidden by our forum spam filter. (It’s a machine, and it sometimes gets things wrong.) When that happens, you just have to wait for a staff person to come along, review the post and unhide it.

Threads can get locked for multiple reasons as well. Some examples:
1. If the person who started the thread deletes their first post, the thread is automatically locked.
2. If the issue is solved (eg a particular player had a purchasing problem), I sometimes will lock the thread.
3. If the thread is spammy or has gotten derailed, it might be locked to keep people from continuing to bump it.

Hope that helps!

Topic: General (Westeros Discussion) / [Kongregate feature] Subforums!

Hey guys!

You may notice a change in the way this forum is laid out. GoTA now has subforums! So far, I’ve made a General subforum for most topics, and a Recruitment subforum, for all guild recruitment and people looking for allies.

This will help organize the forum a bit better for you guys, and if you have any suggestions for new subforums, feel free to suggest them here. We can’t guarantee to make all of them happen (since too many subforums will just splinter the community), but we’ll be glad to consider ideas!

I would like to know which of the rules I violated to get the post removed, it took time to make that picture haha

Sorry ‘bout that! For whatever reason, our spam filter decided you were the enemy and it needed to hide your post. D: If you ever have your post removed immediately (or almost immediately), chances are good that our spam filter hid it. There’s nothing to be done but wait for a staff person to come along, review it and unhide.

Topic: Creations / Contract Wars Memes

Okay, real talk: I started at the bottom of this page and hid nearly every post (dafuq? why so many memes in one thread?) until I got to the top and the title. And then I grinned, scrolled back down, and unhid all the things. :-)

Carry on!

Topic: General / [to Mod] Why does my topic get removed without any message?

Hello— Looks like you (for whatever reason, it’s sometimes quite mysterious) got targeted by our forum spam filter. If you ever see a post that is hidden immediately, that’s because the spam filter got it. There’s no solution but to wait for a staff person to come along and unhide your post. :-( Sorry ’bout that.
