Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Feel like you guys should bring back Badge Suggestions/New Badge Discussion since it’s getting so confusing seeing both badge suggestions and discussions all interleaved within one another.

While this is a neat idea, that would also mean that you can’t get the Shiny version of the Kongpanion for that week, as you’d have to get your BotD as late as possible on Sunday! I like my Shinies <3

I like the shinies too haha but honestly who cares if they’re first or last, I just enjoy seeing the new Kongpanions each week! It makes Mondays a whole lot funner :)

IMO it would make a mockery of Kong’s revenue system if someone ended up being paid a few thousand bucks for something that literally everyone here, admins included, knows they didn’t actually make themselves.

Don’t forget that Kongregate themselves are cashing in approx. $5,000 if you add up all the revenue made from Flappy Bird knock-offs. That being said, rules are rules, so Kongregate does not have to take it down (until Dong Nguyen says so), so why would they, if they are making legitimate money?

And also remember, the creator of the original Flappy Bird had to take his game down, only because of similar copyright infringements placed upon himself by Nintendo, but he still cashed in that $50,000 a day, without breaking any laws.

All this being said, I have no idea what stance anyone should take… it’s so complicated.

It must have been a slow week when Bubble Sky was badged… or maybe people were complaining about not having any badges recently so that was Greg’s idea of a joke haha!

It’s the creator’s decision. We can only make an assumption as to what we think the creator wants. How would you like it if someone made a decision for you that they thought you’d want? Especially if they were wrong.

Wait, are you saying that you don’t need permission from the creator to upload a game? And that atm we are assuming he wants this game to be on kong? I’m confused.

It seems like the entire system is backwards… I’m just curious about what would happen if the developer were to collect the ad money generated from the game. Technically, it is the dev’s game regardless of copyright issues.

From my own calculations, the game should have generated at least $5000 in ad revenue at the moment, meaning that the dev should be entitled to about $2000!

I don’t see why he’s taking it down, it’s making good money.

It’s probably legal issues. Nobody walks away from that kind of money…

What game is the link on “sure”? I think Petal should have a chance to defend himself, although it looks very suspicious…

It’s funny to see that you consider that a “win” even though you only got a fraction of them legitimately…

Why has kongregate done anything about this? If copying games is allowed, I might as well make my own version of Flappy Bird. Anyone with any programming knowledge can do a better job than what that thief did.

Looks like a bunch of people beat you to it :)
