Topic: Kongregate / The problem with Kongregate's Admins.

Originally posted by SwagSwagSwag:

If someone makes an account for the forums and talks about “swag” [and has spammed the forums (often including porn and gore) for several years on hundreds of accounts] that person will get instabanned. If someone has over, let’s say 2k posts, and they constantly belittle other users and encourages troubled teenagers to kill themselves, they get away with it. Do you see the problem here? The admins are more concerned with people that speak highly of themselves (claiming oneself has swag) than they do with cyber bullies. If you’re going to permaban someone for such a silly reason then you should also ban those that are actually hurting other people.

Please stop with this picking favourites thing and actually do your job. Thank you.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Will Devs Actually Keep Their Promise This Time And Keep Forums Up After They Kill This Game?

Originally posted by darkfang77:

I am not so sure because it seems the forums were down earlier to gauge our reactions to the forums being cut altogether (if you didn’t know already, Kong is having financial/legal troubles through GS and other issues).

The forums on Kongregate belong to Kongregate, not to Synapse. Provided the forum does not become completely toxic and/or go out and harass other forums, I see no reason why it can’t continue here indefinitely. The Backyard Monsters forum was open for quite a long time after the game closed, maybe six months or a year.

As far as the financial / legal troubles, care to share a source? I don’t follow GS financials but Kongregate continues to be on solid ground and there are (so far as I know, and I would almost certainly know) no legal issues pending. At the very least, there’s nothing so severe as to keep us from leaving the forum open.

Papa games are kind of like dress up games now that I think about it. You’re just dressing up food instead of people, and you get rewarded on how good you’re at with dressing up.

Holy crap, how did this never occur to me…? That’s brilliant.

Sorry, our spam filter decided you were suspicious. :-( Silly filter can’t always tell the difference between levels and somebody posting random zeros and commas.

G’day,

All my posts keep getting deleted…. why? No reason given?

Sorry about that! For some reason our spam filter thought you were bad news. In nearly every case if your post is hidden essentially the moment you make it, that means it was our automated system (which sadly does get it wrong sometimes). I’ve cleared all the flags on your posts, and hopefully it will learn its lesson.

Topic: Heroes of the Realm / HotR will be closing July 25

Hello,

I’m deeply saddened to confirm that the game will indeed be closing in fifteen days. This decision was made by the developers, not Kongregate. I know that this game was genuinely loved by a lot of people and we’re sorry to see it go.

Kongregate’s standard is that developers should give at least 30 days’ notice before closing a game. When that does not happen (as is the case here), we return all kreds spent in the game in the 30 days prior to shutdown. In this case, I will be refunding all kreds spent since June 25.

The game’s badges will be retired. That is to say, no one will able to earn them any more (for obvious reasons), but the badge will continue to exist on the profiles of everyone who earned it prior to closure.

I regret being the bearer of bad news, and hope that you all will find another game on the site that you really enjoy.

Topic: Off-topic / guess what

One of the main rules of this forum (or any Kongregate forum) is that there must be a topic of discussion in the initial post. Announcement threads, like this one, really don’t serve any discussion purpose— so I’m going to lock it.

Your post was auto-hidden by our spam filter and flagged for admin review. Sorry about that. :-( In general, if your post is hidden within moments after you make it, it’s the filter.

Topic: Shadowland Online / SLO on Kongregate closing July 29

Hello everyone,

I’m afraid that I need to confirm the message in the blue bar is correct. The game has been having some technical problems, and the developers have understandably decided that it’s time for the game to come down.

SLO had a great run on Kongregate, and we’ll be sad to see it go.


Edit: I would like to clarify that this was the decision of ZQ Games rather than Kongregate. We would have been glad to see the game continue on Kongregate indefinitely. Nonetheless, we can certainly understand the developers’ decision.

Topic: Off-topic / wtf

Well, “someone worked and worked to find a way to screw things up” isn’t exactly a bug. A bug is something that happens to people who are using the site as intended and run into problems accidentally.

(sigh)

This is the reason we can’t have nice things.

Topic: Kongregate / Idle Category

Hey, thanks for the suggestion. We recently added a homepage category devoted to idle games, but it makes sense to add one to the games dropdown too. I passed the idea along.

Originally posted by bobby71983:

I think idle games are declining in popularity.

Actually, they’re still increasing. A lot of our most-played games in the past week / month are idle games.

slaps OP

Don’t judge our love! You don’t know my life! D: D: D:

In seriousness, it sort of depends on what people like. Ultimately, idle games are resource management games. Many games have a resource-management aspect, and in some games (base-builders, some MMOs) the whole strategic focus is on managing resources to achieve certain desired results. So I don’t think it’s so crazy that many people (me included) enjoy games that use the same mechanic but in a more direct way.
