Topic: Kongregate / Extended Leaderboards: Top 820,370 [Updated: November 22nd, 2014]

Originally posted by 123aaa789:

And yeah, it’d be interesting to have that kind of info as well, but it would require an extra html request for every user, which would more than double the execution time (and considering I haven’t gotten around to fixing the asynchronous version of the code which would reduce run time by a factor of about 100 or so, I’m not really willing to do something to make it take longer just yet).

If it was available from the API I’d add it myself, but the amount of extra requests and data required is just ridiculous for not much added benefit. Hopefully Kong will add something like a user summary to the API, but i won’t hold my breath.

Hah! I love that the are head and shoulders above the next person with only 30 badges.

That’s a huge amount of API data to pull per user though, just to count the number of badges. The summary info is available from the profile page but there doesn’t seem to be any related API call to get that. Distribution of easy/medium/hard badges and bonus points would be an interesting thing to add IMO.

It’s a shame the API doesn’t actually let you get the actual number of badges for each profile. I’d love to see the difference between Jayisgames that has mostly referrer points and the other people on the leaderboard.

Thanks for the update, this works way better now (for me anyway)

Unfortunately Numbers on Mac craps itself when trying to open this.

Would you consider providing it as a zipped CSV file instead? It would probably cut the file size down dramatically and be openable in a lot more programs.

Alternatively you could use the Google Docs API to upload the info. You could potentially use tabs to split the data up into groups of 1,000 (or whatever).

Topic: Technical Support / Middle clicking the BotD no longer works

It absolutely used to work, and no longer does. I did mention this in the original post

The badge of the day was previously middle-clickable to open the game in a new tab. This is no longer the case.

and that was also why I asked if you were talking about the game just opening in the same tab or if it was opening in a new tab as well.

Somehow he wants to be able to click on the mouse-wheel, which opens a new tab with most hyperlinks.

Just like CTRL+left click does. But I guess he doesn’t own a keyboard? :P

I’d hardly consider “somehow” being able to open a link in a new tab by middle clicking as non-standard functionality. It’s common across all browsers at this point, and it works on pretty much every other link on Kongregate. Plus you kind of have to go out of your way to break this in HTML.

Bumping, still a problem.

Just tried in all 3 of those browsers you listed and clicking on the image takes me to the game right away.

Do you mean it opens in the same tab or a new tab?

All the non-badge of the day inks appear to work properly, this just seems to happen on the badge of the day links that appear on the badge page and under the ‘Achievements’ menu.

Shame it doesn’t work on the other 98% of web browsers :(

Also broken on the new Kongpanions page when clicking on ‘Play now’ for the game popup that appears when hovering over each day

On the badges page:
http://www.kongregate.com/badges

The badge of the day was previously middle-clickable to open the game in a new tab. This is no longer the case.

Hovering over the badge name, the game name, and the ‘Play Now’ button shows the correct link but middle-clicking any of these or anywhere in the blue rectangle opens the game in the current window.

Occurs in:
– Chrome 31.0.1650.63
– Firefox 26.0
– Safari 7.0.1 (9537.73.11)

Topic: Technical Support / 400 Bad Request Errors

Sorry for the thread necromancy, but this is still an issue.

I’ve just had exactly the same problem (with the badge of the day as well) and I’ve deleted 9 Armor Games cookies and the site works again.
