Topic: Off-topic / So when can we have legal polygamy?

Well the bible says polygamy is fine, but I am sure all the wannabee christians will tell you that it was just a typo or something.

You should be allowed to be married to as many people that are alright with it. How dare anyone decides how many people you can have a relationship with. It’s not even natural to just have one partner your whole life.

Aside from that, you know what the best part will be about the gay marriage? the “gay” divource court.

gay couples actually get divorced less often than straight couples.

My morals come from someone who is a free thinker. I’m not one of those restricted religious people who is told what their morals are suppose to be.

Well that can´t possibly go wrong can´t it?

Let´s leave everyone that can´t see right from wrong decide from themselves, that´ll sure work just great, it´ll be like Planet Of The Apes, except with weaboos thinking they are moral bastions for the common men to follow. Morality is clearly overrated.

I liked Planet of the Apes(the original of course, remake sucked).

Topic: Off-topic / Should Incest be Legal?

Originally posted by Wave_Rida:

is it illegal atm?
Is it actually handled by the government (f.e. dutch laws make pirating illegal, but do not actively search for people taht break this law)?

Afaik, no one cares or is bothered. For the people saying condoms do not provide enough security, I point to abortion.

It’s state law.

If others around you find out they probably look down on you, but you are not going to get in legal trouble. It’s just one of those that happens among many family members around the world, but they have to try their best to keep it hidden from others. Pretty much the only limiters are that i cannot legally marry my sister, and if we have a child, and for some reason dna testing was done, one or both of us could either receive jail time and/or lose the child.

So you can get away with incest fairly easily, even though it is against the law.

Topic: Off-topic / Should Incest be Legal?

It should.

The only reason it’s illegal is because of the risk of them having children, which in 2015 is very easy to prevent. If you don’t want children, then you won’t have children if you really want to be protected.

All you gotta do is straight up ban children from parents who are close enough. Problem solved. Incest is no longer creepy.

Topic: Off-topic / Is transsexuality really bad?

I think that people who change their sex are doing it completely by choice. They were not born the wrong sex, that’s not how biology works. We are all some % of male and female, one becomes predominant, and that’s what we are born as. You are always born the right sex.

Not saying there is anything wrong with going through this procedure, but don’t try to convince me you did it because you were born the wrong sex. If you are male, you wanted to be female, and vice versa. That’s all.

I wonder if people include “forum moderator” in their resumes.

I actually did include moderator jobs I have had in a resume recently, and why not? They were jobs.

I was not, and do not want to be, a moderator on Kong, but I have been a forum moderator in several other places in the past, including a couple admin jobs for gaming leagues.

I felt that they showed I have leadership capabilities, so they look good on a resume.

Originally posted by Precarious:

Re: Gemcraft, is the final badge more or less equivalent to reaching the end of the story, or does it come somewhat before that? The other badges seem pretty appropriate length-wise from my experience so far.

I would say that unlocking 12 hexes or reaching the banishing orb stage is approximately the half way point, factoring in that each level gets progressively more starting waves and requires more precision(game paused or played on 1x speed).

Of course if you know exactly where to go, you can skip a lot of optional levels.

Aside from the fact that tricky pointed their popularity has been increasing, I don’t think it’s going to happen any time soon.

As long as the site does not allow you to have the chat open without playing a game, they’ll have their place. Granted, games like Just Chatting are very well-known within the community. Will newer idle games attract less players? Possibly. Will idle games become obsolete? Highly unlikely unless Kongregate decides to change the way their chat works.

I did not say they were dead, I said they were declining. They are most certainly not at their peak anymore, which means they must be declining.

You can be declining while also still being on top.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

It took me 29 hours to beat the story of chasing shadows(according to my steam time played) this is of course with premium, though. I did almost no grinding, maybe 2 hours of it. I cleared all stages I could unlock(except the vision fields) until the last story stage was the last one I could.

The easy and mediums seem fine. Hard is probably fine for the badge level.

Greg, for banish with the gem of eternity, is that the stages with that gem that randomly banishes enemies that get close to it? If so, that’s around the same length of time, if not shorter, than 12 hex titles. I can’t remember exactly when it appears, but it’s on par with 12 hex titles, and you will probably get them close to the same time, so it seems somewhat of a redundant hard.

Perhaps unlocking a certain amount of tomes would be good. Not sure how many are free to play though. I personally found all of them(except one late game) to be easy enough to earn, but it is something you have to actively set up for, so it’s not an overlapping badge of the same difficulty.

If you are waiting too much with sugar sugar, you probably played it wrong.

There was only a couple levels that took me several minutes past when the sugar stopped falling, and that was only because the game allows you to do that, so i took advantage of it.

It shouldnt matter that a black person said it. Everyone should be allowed to say it.

The only reason I dont use the word is the same reason that I also dont swear…it is unnecessary. Every swear word is easily replaceable with another word with the same meaning. Instead of saying this word, I can just say blacks.

Topic: Off-topic / Has a fictional work ever emotionally impacted you to the point of tears?

Extremely easily. Fiction always gets more reactions out of me than non-fiction. Reality is boring, it’s not going to get reactions from me. I have cried many times to various movies, shows, video games. As recently as yesterday. It’s common, crying is good for you.

Topic: Kongregate / Pay 2 Win games

This genre is not going away anytime soon. It’s the majority of the revenue for the vast majority of games with microtransactions.

Just remember, you can play almost all of them free. I have played a large amount of pay2win games completely free and enjoyed myself.

Making it harder to make an alt wont accomplish anything. You pretty much have to make alts against the rules somehow. Even the most aggravating of signups to a site only take a couple minutes, that is not enough to stop a troublemaker. It must be remembered that someone who has trouble planned is even less likely than a normal person to be discouraged by a slightly more inconvenient barrier, because they have a certain motive.

Since we are using irrelevant analogies, I will use one too. Imagine you have a swarm of bees around your house. You have 8 windows and 2 doors as the only way for anything outside to get inside. You close both doors and 7 windows. What is the result? Your house is swarmed with bees. It doesnt matter that 90% of your house was secured. You slowed the swarm down slightly, but the end result was the same. That’s basically the same as trying to discourage troublemakers online, you can’t actually stop it unless you leave them zero openings.

Now back to new accounts. I really cant think of a way you would make new accounts to annoying to make but also not being a detriment to other people. I still say the best answer is learn to live with them. If you are concerned about your rep from people pretending to be you, then well..dont be. If you have a certain rep, it should set up red flags to someone if something seems amiss, and all they have to do(and should be doing if they are at all interested in you) is doing a quick profile check, which can be done with one click.

Like, if someone made an alt of me and just started spamming porn, anyone who thinks it is actually me is someone who I don’t really care about anyway. I mean, if you are so gullible that you would fall for something that easily, should I REALLY care how you perceive me? The people whos opinion I might care about at all will wonder whats going on and actually do their due diligence and take the 1 click it takes to check that user and confirm that it is not me, while also reporting it.
