Topic: Kongregate / Holy Crap, New Navigation

gametards are never happy.

the navigation bar makes the site more accessible, including places that probably weren’t known to the users in the past.

you’ve tweaked the css of the forum. it now looks spiffy and not as chaotic.

also, i’m wondering if the users notice that the ‘tags’ feature has finally been taken out for quite some time now. hell, they were mostly used for spam anyway.

Topic: The Arts / Gimp

the price of something does not equate it’s might in quality.

the beauty of gimp is, you are able to modify and add to the app, making it more efficient and advanced, according to the user’s needs and skillz.

gimp is harder to navigate for those who are used to the photoshop interface.

i’ve used photoshop eversince 1997 but have switched to gimp entirely last year and found the transition easy and rewarding.

also, it’s FREE for feck’s sake. and using it means you are supporting and appreciating the work of independant developers. sheesh.

Topic: Kongregate / Random game function.

pick any games from http://games.wetgenes.com

and then click the ‘NEXT’ or the forward arrow button to get random games from the internet. there’s about 10,000++ games to play through that method.

Topic: Collaborations / LeftRight & alexmiller Collaboration! (Come watch)

to ‘loom’ means:
appear very large or occupy a commanding position or
brood: hang over, as of something threatening, dark, or menacing

unless you’re fat, i mean, horizontally challenged, and sensitive about it; i think looms is an awesome word. with that being said, here is i, looming too.

by the by, nice mellowed jingle jangle wah wah there, leftright.

Topic: Off-topic / When Do You Turn The Volume Off? (For Games)

actually, my games also have an in-built streaming mp3 player that has many hours of music.

so i don’t know what these gamers are talking about. maybe they are playing inferior games. :)

by the way, aren’t the responses depressing thus far? when you toil to create music, they get muted. and when you don’t add any music, they demand it so! it’s as if you’re damned either way.

Topic: Kongregate / How would you "clean up" the site?

i’m basically hoping for the search and spam functions to work.

aside from that, it would be nice to let developers be in charge of their game page just as the average user is in charge of their own page; ie. manage comments/shouts.

Topic: Kongregate / Disagree with Voting System!!!

i thought this was brought up in greg’s previous post about the sudden realization that the gamers here are voting unfairly?

see here.

in any case, i’ll put forth my suggestion again.

hey greg, here’s a simple fix.

this simple greasemonkey script calculates a better rating.

observe how the rating for Breach can now only go up.
the only way it can go down is if people change their ratings to a lower one.
there is no room for negativity. every rating is a positive act.

this means, spammers could not lower the score.

WetKongFix

here’s a screenshot of what it does.

each star represents twice as much as the previous star, so whilst it’s not out of 5, the number of stars is still manageable and comparable.

wasn’t prohibition a bad thing?

tho that did produce some rather interesting situations. (see portrayal in media as examples)

Topic: Serious Discussion / People forget manners on the internet

saying gamers don’t often like being known contradicts the gaming scene (in korea where gamers are rockstars), gamebloggers (reviewers anyone?), game communities (kong photo thread), gamer magazines and even leaderboards.

i would also like to take this opportunity to say that i’m usually more polite and well-mannered on the internets. only because, the act of typing a sentence in response to a post requires commitment, the rereading of said comment, possible spelling checks and a considerable amount of time pondering its relevance before the ‘submit’ button is pushed. although, relative to the comments seen here, i could be amongst the mini percentage. :}

apparently, some of us realise the tendency of comments to last until the end of time.

Topic: Kongregate / Please stop rating games based on challenges/achievements

i think we should have a 100 stars instead of 5 and every star should be a new challenge and we get extra points and an end of level boss with helicopters and giant mechanical spiders.
