Topic: Off-topic / Whats your favorite scary movie?

I like movies that blend the horror and comedy genres, especially zom coms. Fido, Slither, and Shaun of the Dead are my favorites.

Cool story, bro. Now tell me the one about how Pokemon, CoD, etc. etc. don’t also use the “same shit, different location” format.

Did everyone miss the post where greg said he doesn’t badge idle games?

That’s how it feels to me, too. Of course, this is the forum where “Why I hate idle games” is fifty-nine near identical threads by fifty-eight different people.

Topic: Rise of Champions / [Guild] Titanium: prepping for gw, 12 openings including officers

Titanium. Old school and obscure. I’m not going to make any feeble excuses about it. I’ve since come to realize that RoC has changed so much since Titanium’s creation that having a casual guild is no longer going to cut it.

Which is why I’m making this post. I don’t want Titanium to die out, but it needs a complete overhaul. Active members, lieutenants, semi-regular contributions, the works.

The goal is to get Titanium up and ready for guild warfare. The expectation is that we’ll probably get stomped in guild warfare, but we might as well have fun. If that appeals to you and you want to be a part of that, feel free to post below.

P.S. I’m keeping Titanium’s “no level requirement” policy.

UPDATE: Twelve spots are available- including officer positions- and I’ve dumped the guild’s stored contributions into GW stats.

Cardinal Quest 2’s impossible badge should be changed to: (choose one)

Only the first option is reasonable.
I just did 1kk score run (tower) with mage and it’s nothing hard.

Considering all of the Tower content is from a post-badge update, I would have to agree with option one.

Topic: Off-topic / How much does someone's opinion of you affect your opinion of them?

I’ve noticed two determining factors in how I react to negative behavior: 1) how they treat people I know and 2) how sensible their actions are. After that, my reactions tend to range from “Aw, geez, you’re doing it again.” to “I’m going to try avoiding you as much as I possibly can.”

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Fantasy Online] Is there an alternative?

Well, when it comes to game mechanics and medium/graphics, Cardinal Quest 2 is very similar.

Topic: Kongregate / The Anti Spam Thread

If the spambots are using illegal Blogspot sites in their ads, you can report those pages to Blogger support and get them shut down. (I’ve posted that info so many times that I feel like a broken record at this point, but I do like giving a one-two whammy to those relentless s.o.b.s)

Yeah, that’s a pretty good idea, especially for those of us out there who are somewhat squeamish (me, sometimes).

A tag for jump scares would be helpful, too. I’ve passed on some popular and possibly enjoyable games because the Horror tag is very generalized.

Topic: Kongregate / Summer '15 suggestion thread

I’m reminded of this one user who wanted to become mod so he could permaban the mod who silenced him for constantly spamming.

I wish humanity worked on the honor system, but most people on the internet wouldn’t know maturity or common sense if either of them manifested physical form and [CENSORED FOR YOUR SANITY].

Lodwelleste has spammed the forums fifty-three times in a matter of five hours. I’m suggesting “ban spam bots faster”, but I realized that a banning wouldn’t take care of any problem, as the act of banning never tends to do.

Since it will probably be awhile until an administrator bans the account, which will probably be in a few hours, I’m strongly emphasizing that there should be a “prove you’re not a robot” task for signing up to Kongregate, as many sites have this implemented. I know easy registration is great and all, but I’m assuming that this would take care of some problems.

I know I’ve already suggested this method already in this thread, but letting this bot flourish for this long is just ridiculous.m

Time to pester the admins about this.

This is why I think we need a small team of specialized forum mods, preferably in conjunction with “prove you’re not a bot” signup measures. Although the persistence of bots makes it a problem with only quick fix solutions, expediting those solutions when the bots do make it past the signup checks turns it into basic maintenance and spares the forumgoers from having to see spam in the first place.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Sometimes devs work primarily with a specific site. In most cases (that I’m familiar with) the primary site is either Kong or AG. The site in question gets exclusive content and/or first publishing rights, usually in exchange for promotion of the game.

While we’re on the subject of providing some assistance/backup for Greg…

Suggestion: two or three new mods whose only duties are to remove spam bot posts from the forums and permaban spam bot accounts.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

At this point I’m wondering how many older games are out there that were previously unbadgeworthy but now fit the requirements.
