Topic: Kongregate / Alternate Account Policy?

There is no rule against it. Keep in mind that people might not be too happy with you if you’re using alts for ban/silence evasion, though.

What about a goosebumps themed name? :(

Death Mountain, Critical Hit Haven, Hyrule Field

But my actual choice would be my own, Vampire Breath

Because all of these suggestions were given by either room regs or myself. Nobody wanted a goosebumps themed name.

Topic: Kongregate / how to create a room like kiwibob

You can’t. Only Administrators can create rooms, and that power hasn’t been used for a long time.

As for owning a room, mods that are willing can take rooms(If unowned, they talk to the admins, if owned, they talk to the current room owner).

However, you can create a Private Room that you can invite your friends to if you have Kongregate+.

Topic: Kongregate / Who is the Best Admin? (April 2014 Edition)

It’s hard to say a definitive answer without feeling bad. I will say that my personal favorite admin is IAmTheCandyman. Gets back to me quickly and is quick to help out. Plus, he’s a panda. And who doesn’t love that?

Of course, tricky and Johanna are great too. Arguably they do the most work around here.

All I know is your profile, “I am watching you”. Watching makes me think of Luxray. So, that.

Topic: Kongregate / Ban Highscore-Cheater

CROW, seriously? Yes, it’s true, but we already know. The point is, they don’t have the time to go through every single high score, and actually play every single game so they know what high scores are reasonable. Yes, I agree that the current system is broken(with Kongbot only deleting scores that are more than 10% higher than the current high score), but..this is what we’re stuck with. No matter what, there are going to be cheaters.

Topic: General Gaming / Who is your retro gaming hero?

Picking one is impossible. Picking two however..I can do that, and believe it or not Link is not one of them.

Mega Man, and Samus Aran.

Topic: Kongregate / Why you should use adblock on Kong

I admit the former point is a problem, but that’s simply bad programming.

Also, mods have admitted that kong doesnt care about us older members and only cares about getting new members to play pay2win MMOs. If they dont care about me, why should I allow them to make money off of me?

What I’m really interested in is this particular point. If someone actually said this, I’d like to see it.

It isn’t Kongregate’s fault that P2W is becoming the norm, if it even is. It’s the developer’s faults. But that’s beyond the point.

Yes, Kongregate is a business. However, Kongregate does care about its members, by virtue of mods existing in the first place. Believe it or not, we do try to do our best to keep the community awesome, and although it’s hard sometimes, and we do make mistakes(we’re people too!) we do the best we can, so.

inb4 I’m completely ignored or misinterpreted

Topic: Kongregate / Another Generic Giveaway

Well, I’ve got two.

My first was quite possibly with my very first game on Kongregate, Learn to Fly 2. I had played LtF quite a bit, and if I recall correctly I didn’t even know there was a sequel. So I found it on Kong, and decided to play it. I fell in love instantly, and made my account on the spot. Little did I know just how that account would yeah.

My second, and a lot more recent, was with Anti-Idle: The Game. I had made this thread just on a whim. Honestly, it was sort of an experiment on my end, just to see what would happen. Then the next day Tukkun talks to me about putting a mode like this into the game itself. And now it actually exists. So..yeah. Pretty amazing to have a real impact on one of your most-played games on Kong.

Okay, better idea. The room owner is allowed to choose an image to go there, that represents the room. Or something.

Topic: Kongregate / We need a sticky for legitimate high scores.

While I admit the high score tables are flawed(Not only does it accept illegitimate scores quite often, but it also sometimes eats legitimate scores), I don’t think a thread for them is a very good idea. Mostly, how can we prove YOUR scores were legitimate? Also, think about how much work that would be to update. Not something I at least want to do, and I doubt the staff has time for it.

Topic: Kongregate / Kreds

As has already been mentioned several times, yes, Kreds are purchased through GameStop or awarded through TrialPay. However, as mentioned in the last newsletter, Kongregate occasionally does giveaways where the winner receives kreds.
