Topic: Technical Support / Entire Site Down For Most

Hi Rebax,

It sounds like your friend is experiencing the DNS issue from earlier. You have 3 options, from easiest to hardest:

1) Wait. Eventually the problem will fix itself when your friend’s DNS records update automatically.

2) He can follow these instructions to clear his DNS cache, here.

3) You can have him follow the instructions to change his DNS here

And lastly, if you want an chart to help visualize the problem, you can see that here.

Let me know how it goes :)

You should revert your hosts file.

Leaving a manually created hosts record does not help you in any way, and in fact will cause further issues for you if DNS records change again in the future.

For the garbled layout issue, (assuming it’s been resolved on Kong’s end), just force-refresh the page you’re on.
For most browsers this can be done with CTRL+F5 (Command+R for safari).

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate ERROR AUTHENTICATION, all the online games are inaccessible!

@AlisonClaire Perhaps setting a TTL that is shorter than whatever the records currently have? :P I don’t know of any reasons in current day to have a TTL longer than 3600s, and even then you’re probably being conservative. 300-600s TTL ftw!

Hmm, I wasn’t aware VALVE could IP ban you from your offline games. Ouch :(

Since BioShock is a single player, offline game, your VAC status will not affect your ability to play BioShock.

Giving away is not soliciting :)

The only mention of solicitation in the ToS is “you will not post any content that contains business solicitation of any type”. Note the term “business”. Asking someone to make you an avatar is solicitation, unless done in an obstructive manner, I don’t see this as rule-breaking.

Topic: Dream World / Official Bug Reports Thread (old)

Trivia Bug : Answer was “John Fitzgerald Kennedy”, it said the answer was “John Fitzerald Kennedy” (notice the missing ‘g’), also, the field was too short to type in either answer fully.

Trivia Bug : Answering “%%0” (without quotes) will result in Wiseman acting as if you’d chosen “Talk” instead of “Trivia” and simply hands you XP and Gold with the “Talk” dialogue.

Premium Allies : Supposed to be your level always, when you level, they DO NOT. (You have to get another ally, then re-equip your premium ally, which will now start at your level again)

Request : Could we please get a list of “Currently Known Bugs” on the first page, I couldn’t bear reading through all x pages to make sure that I wasn’t posting a double. (Sorry in advance)

Topic: General Gaming / do u think warcraft movie will be good?

Originally posted by Shamona2U:

I will probably see it, though I hate Blizzard for all they’ve done for WoW. Blizzard have said that the story will be based a year after WC3 (3 years before WoW) and the main character will be a human that has not been introduced yet. Personally, I would have much preffered if Blizzard had based it on Warcraft 3 and had the main characters Illidan Stormrage, Arthus Menethil, etc. I love my Warcraft lore…

The movie was given the title “Rise of the Lich King” and is supposed to draw from the Christie Golden book of the same name. With Sam Raimi onboard, I’m giving it a fair shot.
