Topic: Kongregate / everyone gets away with roleplay but when i roleplay everyone reports me

I hate that way of thinking.

I was taking a midterm yesterday and the guy next to me had his iphone in his lap while taking it. The teacher threatened no phones or you get a 0, but she is lax with enforcing it. I probably could have gotten away with using my phone as well, but I didn’t, know why? I follow the rules.

The fact that he wasn’t caught for breaking the rules does not mean I would have been justified in breaking them.

Topic: Off-topic / Just how much do you respect authority figures?

For me, respect is frequently being reset. I don’t care if you did something good last week, you have to show me that you have not gotten complacent. Respect needs to be CONSTANTLY proven to me. You should not be judged on your past actions, you should be judged on your present actions.

So, I am equally likely to respect a police officer as I am a random 12 year old if I have never met either of them.

I have noticed this, and have been noticing for quite a while, but when they dub some anime, anyone noticed in some how they change the currency from ¥ to $?

I think the dubs more often than not keep it as yen.

Might be more common in the ones that highly americanized(naruto, bleach etc.),but I cannot remember the last time money was called dollars in a dubbed anime that I watched.

Topic: Kongregate / Why is OT still open?

I disagree about mods. That is not why OT is what it is.

Forum mods have extremely little power. It’s too easy to make alts. You can post pictures in your posts. There is no filter. Stupid Kongregate rules require mods to give 47 pointless warnings before doing anything. All mods are as far as OT is concerned is a talking point.

People use mods as an excuse. Mods should be a last resort, not a first resort. OT is what it is because they are a bunch of troublemakers(not that there is anything wrong with that), and no modding is going to change that, so let’s stop pretending that it will. OT is not going to change, it is what it is. I see no major difference with OT now than when there were 3 or 4 active mods. Just the usernames have changed. Asking for more mods is doing the same thing and expecting a different result, and you know what that means.

Topic: Off-topic / Why is Kongregate (Forum) Still Open?

OT actually serves more of a purpose than the main kongregate forum. At least you all have an objective.

I don’t really know what the point of the kongregate forum is.

The most likely outcome is they gather offsite, which is a benefit for everyone.

Worst case scenario a few stragglers try to make another forum the new OT, but they won’t have enough people to make it work.

Do you seriously think that? For most of us, OT is the only reason we come to Kongregate. If Kong removes it then we simply shit up other forums.

Yes. OT is no different than any other community. Even though one forum is effectively as good as another, and even though you very well might only use kong for that one forum, there will inevitably be a bunch of people who just give up on the OT community if their “home” is lost. I’ve seen it happen multiple times over the years. I have been part of a lot of forum communities, and when the host site either shuts down or does something to restrict access, the community dies out within a few months at the longest.

Would OT change that trend? I don’t know.

Debating about the color of the dress.

You know what’s more funnier. This is on New York Times and ABC News.

Only miserable people talk about the first 3 topics in your list.

Topic: Off-topic / Anime Addicts Anonymous (AAA)

Alright, I have finished all 17 episodes of Kokoro Connect.

It does what it is trying to do well and can be a little bit thought provoking. We suppress things every moment of every day of our lives, and this show is all about that suppression being released, and seeing what happens. I think the dialogue was good and it seemed like it could have been realistic if such a thing was possible. All the characters get their moments, although some get way more air time than others, and it’s highly noticeable.

My only real gripe is that we never get a real explanation for what is happening. It’s as endless said, it’s kinda forced, and you just see how they deal with it.

It’s a good show if you just don’t expect anything. I am never going to watch it again though.

Topic: Kongregate / [Split Test] Wide Feature Roll!

Originally posted by radar816:

Hey Kong, how about doing a survey or a poll or something to see how much people like this redesign?

They would never do this because it would prove that they don’t know what they are doing when the results are not the same as the results that they “claim” to get. Their data relies almost entirely on guesswork instead of solid facts.

By not having a poll, they can continue to pretend we are stupid.

They took it off to stop people from seeing removed posts, which is borderline retarded.

If that is true then that really says something about the skill level of their programmers.

Started Kokoro Connect, usually the idea of gender switching/changing is a reliable go to for comedy.

It’s not all that funny, but it might just be a bad dub.(I just prefer dubs, helps with multitasking).

I’m curious enough to just binge the rest of this. Even by supernatural standards, the plot doesn’t make any dang sense yet, so I wanna see the explanation :P

I considered Kokoro Connect to be more or less a romantic drama, rather than a comedy. I really enjoyed it myself. Inaba <3

I hated that show. While intentional due to how the plot in that show works, things felt forced. It was like shit happened and they the show was like “DO YOU FEEL BAD NOW? COME ON, FEEL BAD.”

That…accurately sums up my opinion as well now that I am 8 episodes in. I will maybe finish it tonight or tomorrow, it’s not been what I would call a binge-worthy show, so I have been doing 1 or 2 episodes a night.

One thing certainly is true about this show that is true in most anime: the main male character is seriously unlikeable. I wanted him to get hit by a bus after like episode 2. The other 4(and side characters) all have their moments, but there is nothing redeemable about the default protagonist.

Topic: Off-topic / Main account Zicit permanently banned for posting rude messages on other users' walls (locked)

You readily admit you were wrong and thought you would get away with it because you expected a warning.

You don’t deserve a warning because you were trying to take advantage of the warning system.

What punishment others received is irrelevant. If you do not want to be permbanned, then don’t be rude to people.

Topic: Off-topic / Have you ever gambled at a casino?

When I first turned 21 I lost $200 in like an hour playing slots and video poker.(was at Foxwoods, and I was a bit intimidated by how large the place was) It was not fun, and I have since failed to understand how anyone actually enjoys slot machines. I remember playing slot machine games on pogo even before that, and the only reason those were tolerable was the chat room.

On future visits, I never played anything but poker vs people, which isn’t gambling.

Topic: Kongregate / Stop screwing around with Recently Played

If they have time to test out a wider scroll on the front page, they should have plenty of time to switch the recently played games back. I don’t understand why they are trying to update the look. Was anyone asking them to. I was perfectly happy with the way things were.

Trying to stay with the times. I mean, you wouldn’t want kong to still look like it did when it first started. Nobody “asked” for it to be better, but I’m glad it did. Although recently I’ve been feeling that some of the updates set kong back, that might just be because I’m used to them and am resisting the change.

“Stay with the Times” does not apply in this situation. Things like site layout decisions are timeless. They are either good, or they are bad. If it’s bad in 2015, it will be bad in 2020, and it was bad in 2010.

They are not making any aesthetic changes. It’s still the same plain white background with red at the top. We know that links have been shuffled around arbitrarily for a while now, but new people won’t know or care about this, they will see mostly white with a little red.

I just don’t see their objective. The only thing I can think of is that the designer was bored and needed something to do.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to pop in to let you know that we ARE planning to put the Recently Played section back up to three games. The change down to one game had absolutely nothing to do with money (even though that’s what people always want to blame). It was about having a cleaner design, but you are right, lots of people found those links to be very useful. Even me, though my recently played is usually full of weird games that got flagged. But that’s a different story.

TL;DR: We didn’t intend to make this change a pain for you guys, and we’re going to put the recently played games back into the nav in the near future :)

I really struggle to tell when you are being sarcastic or not.

Crow could learn from you.

Topic: Off-topic / Is asexuality fake?

Of course it’s a bait thread, but when has that ever stopped anyone, and why would it ever stop anyone? If not to see threads like this, why are you even viewing OT?

Asexuality exists, and in all cases it means the person is unhealthy in some way, or has some sort of disorder. A healthy, post-puberty person is not asexual.

Most of the best stuff in the world never makes it outside of Japan.

Just looked this thing up, and I guess it could work in an area where pokemon isn’t still doing well. I have no idea as to the strength of the Pokemon market in 2015, but it’s not going to be surpassing Pokemon anytime soon because it’s just too much of an established franchise. Pokemon is nearing 20 years old.
