Topic: Kongregate / Are Moderators Always a Necessary Force?

The personal mute option is there, in most cases, for people who can’t otherwise restrain themselves. The only time I personal mute most people is when they just spam with no actual content. I think it’s inconvenient to just mute a lot of people because then you are handicapping yourself if that person keeps talking and others respond to them, it’s unnecessary confusion.

Mods really should just be there to stop useless spammers who serve nobody any use. If there is actual conversation going, then I think it should be left to each individual whether or not they will chat back, and the mod should stay out of it.

Topic: Kongregate / Are Moderators Always a Necessary Force?

Moderators main function is just to be a presence. You know what would happen if you saw police officers in every store, near every home, and just generally all over the place? They would be doing virtually nothing, because almost no crime would happen.

A moderator rarely needs to step in and actively do something. Their mere existence lessens troublemakers.

Topic: Kongregate / Possibility: close registration? Or make a special thing for OT.

There are definitely ways to make it work.

One idea is that you cannot start a thread until x weeks of having an account. Some people will just make a bunch of accounts ahead of time, but hey, you are never really going to stop spam. Spam is a core part of the internet that you will never be rid of.

Seriously, what is the point of this split test? Just implement it and give users the option to toggle it on or off.

But then we’d have to split test between giving people this option or not giving people this option.

Cannot tell if sarcastic. Probably is, but unsure.

Topic: Kongregate / Black Backgrounds?

I have been in literally every split test. My opinion is clearly highly valued.

Or they just do something like give the split tests to everyone with an even numbered id, or something.

I’m hoping it’s the latter.

I prefer the black background, I guess. Mostly because white sucks. Any color other than white gives a better atmosphere.

Topic: Kongregate / The irony of giving a farewell gift for "Yu-Gi-Oh BAM" in the game "Tyrant Unleashed"

meh doesnt matter to me. Mobile mmo’s are so plentiful now that I could never see myself playing browser only ones again. I even play dawn of the dragons on mobile just cause of the convenience of mobile.

I played unleashed for a bit. Feels way too similar to the first tyrant, and I never really cared about tyrant that much.

Topic: Kongregate / Are highler levels older accounts more likley to not be banned forever ?

Yes they do.

Its the actual good thing about leveling, you have a sligthly higher tolerance from everyone if you troll or misbehave.

Its not written anywhere and mods/admins will deny it, but it is there.

It’s a society thing. Higher rank gives you more freedom.

Topic: Kongregate / Idle Games continue to hit the top / hot games on Kong

People play them a lot(myself included). I am one of the many guilty of elevating this type of game to being most popular.

Idle games are good for busy people who don’t want to be online all day. Make progress without much effort.

For non idle games, I generally play on mobile.

There would be only minor bias, but unlikely to affect much.

If a 6 year old account posted porn, the admins would be like “I really don’t wanna ban a 6 year account, but he keeps doing that, so I have too.”

If a 6 hour old account posted porn, the admins would be like “banned”

The location would have to be very close(like within 100 miles).

Never have, and likely never will considering where hq is located.

Topic: Kongregate / miniclient for Wartune please.

I highly discourage playing mmo’s on this site for the reasons Tetsuo said.

I tried going back to Wartune a few months ago after having quit 2 years ago, and it was way worse than it was before. I played for maybe an hour before I got fed up with it.

Best advice would be to just join the next new server so that you are at a level playing field with everyone else(relatively speaking). Wartune was not even that popular on kongregate when it was new, can’t imagine a game that old has enough support anymore to warrant kongregate making a change specifically for wartune.

Play mmo’s on the devs main site, it will always get primary attention.

close all of them except anti-idle. That is the only good idle game on kong.

AdVenture Capitalist? Clicker Heroes? Cleary you don’t have tastes in Kong Idle Games.

Anti-idle might not be that great, but it’s far better of a game than AdVenture Capitalist.

Not Far better. Just better.

Anti-idle has virtually infinite non-idle gameplay, along with having the ability to idle as well.

It’s an example of how to make a good idle game. Nothing else on this site can hold a candle to it.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongpanions .. ?

I could have gotten the shiny every week up to now without even needing to earn extra badges, but kongpanions are so worthless that I don’t deem it worth the few seconds 5 times a week it takes to click the BOTD.

It’s basically there for OCD people, like you said.

Topic: Kongregate / You are going to try to win the heart of your boyfriend/girlfriend by introducing him/her to a romantic night playing Kongregate games.

If you are using the computer on a date, and it does not involve webcams, you are doing something wrong.

I don’t think any kongregate games require webcams.
