Topic: Off-topic / I want 2010 back!

Gandhi said be the change you want to see in the world.

If you want OT better, make good threads, flag obvious crap-threads and suggest what you think would make things better.

Running around calling each other fags is what brought us to this point in OT. It ain’t gonna fix anything.

Topic: Off-topic / OT seems to get more and more random each year...

There’s a possibility there won’t even be an OT in 2018.

If there is though, I doubt it’ll be much different than it is now or how it has been for years. OT fluctuates, but never strays too far from baseline.

Topic: Forum Games / Google your name

This is the incorrect forum for this. You may try Off-Topic, but you will also need a point of discussion. As this game stands now though, it does not follow the rules. Please read the sticky and/or message me if you have any other questions.

Topic: Forum Games / How much internet data does Realm of the Mad God take?

Originally posted by AndreiTan:

Wrong forum. Lockplz.

It helps to flag and explain further where they should post. Also helps to not post if you’re not going to flag.

Try posting here, although I’m not sure they’d know. 5 gigabytes is very low. You can use a program like WhatPulse to monitor bandwidth usage. It doesn’t take much space or resources. With a cap as small as 5 GB, I’d certainly be doing that.

Cocoa is right. You would have better luck posting there, so I’m going to lock this.

Topic: Off-topic / First OT post: How to find it?

By digging. As far as I know, there is not an easy way to find your first post. You can search your name and just dig through pages or look through threads, but there won’t be an easy way to tell that it’s your first post.

Topic: Forum Games / DEVIAN24.PL OPPENED TIBIA SERVER

I’m afraid Kongregate does not allow advertising. Even then, discussing your game would require you to go to General Gaming forum. I’m going to lock this thread, but if you want to message me about it, you can. Just remember that threads require something to discuss. Making a thread to advertise is against the rules.

Topic: Kongregate / Let's Discuss About: Signatures

Plenty of people have put in their own signatures over the years.

As for your signature and those that have put signatures in their posts:
Do I care? Not at all.
Should anyone else care? Not reasonably.
Should Kong have them? No.
Why? There are better things the devs could be doing for the forums.
Maybe eventually? It would not affect me in the slightest.

Topic: Forum Games / The Story of Mor

I just locked your first thread. I’m going to ask you actually read my last post and this post.

First, this is the incorrect forum for this thread which is why it was locked. I am the forum moderator for Forum Games so please listen when I say that this is part of why I locked your thread.

Secondly, you can not just advertise your game with a thread. You need to have discussion in threads. The forums are not a billboard. You can ask for opinions on your game, but posting a link just for others to see is unacceptable.

Finally, message me if you’re still unclear on this. I am warning you now that remaking this thread again, incorrectly, will end up with you having to be silenced. I do not want the front page cluttered with locked threads.

Topic: Forum Games / Legends of Mor New MMORPG

Sorry, but this is not the correct forum to discuss your game. You are going to need a topic to discuss and you’re going to have to post in the General Gaming forum. Feel free to message me with any questions.

I’m going to suggest you look into creating forum games from internet resources or asking around on the general thread. This thread however is going to have to be locked. Send me a message if you have any questions.

Topic: Off-topic / Kongregate SED categories (awesome)

Mods, don’t remove as spam, because they are not spam

As far as I can tell, they don’t open up to any actual material. You’re more than welcome to message me privately and we can discuss it, but that’s no guarantee that I will unlock this.

Topic: Off-topic / Why are screamer links banned?

This is bad logic. Kong prohibits porn and virus-ridden sites too. There’s responsibility on the side of people to avoid the obvious stuff, but then it falls to moderation to help keep malicious links out. Screamer links can damage speakers and eardrums. Pranking is annoyance, screamers can easily turn harmful.

Which is why they’re banned.

Topic: Off-topic / Private messages: Just HOW private they are? (Debatical thread)

Can mods read them?

No which is smart. There is no mod out there that needs to read private conversations. If they aren’t public messages, they aren’t disruptive.

Can Admins read them?

When they really need to. Keep in mind, Kong has to follow the law and help authorities when told to. They can’t just not have access to parts of the website. That’d be stupid. Admins can’t see private messages easily, but they can and will if they need to, legally. As for non-essential situations, I’m pretty sure Candyman is too lazy to do what he has to so that he can read private messages. Your inane, harmless conversations are safe from his eyes.

Wat if the msgs r deleted, am meenin we cant even c em

There was a point where several important threads were deleted in the Art forum. The administration had to work with its developer team to bring most of those threads back. Deleted isn’t always deleted, but if it was possible to revive deleted PMs, it’d be damned difficult and unreliable at best.

Topic: Off-topic / ULTIMATE PROOF THAT MODS DELETE THREADS!!!! (MAJOR INFORMATION THREAD)

threads can be hidden

Forums can be hidden. If I could hide threads, my life would be so much nicer. I wouldn’t have to leave half the crap that’s locked on the front page.

ULTIMATE PROOF THAT MODS DELETE THREADS!!!!

And we call this accusatory. For one, none of OT’s mods are going to delete your threads and just lock equally crappy threads. We’d just delete them all. Trust me, deleting threads takes less button clicking.

so, it means A MOD DELETED IT OUTRIGHT!!!!

Or. Big or here. Something else happened. Websites aren’t etched onto stone tablets. Stuff happens to data. It’s possible it disappeared at no fault to anyone. Sometimes, weird stuff just happens. Believe me, I don’t care enough to lie about this. Your threads don’t throw me into some blind deleting rage and never will.

I wish mods would “delete” more threads.

It would look nicer, but the administration is never going to give us new tools to do something like that and won’t accept us just deleting proof for someone’s ban/silence reason.

Oh wait that would require effort lol

I’d like to not have to respond to every shitstorm people have whenever there are several locks on the front page. It’d be much easier and far less effort to only have to deal with one locked thread.

Also, mods dont “delete” threads. Instead, they hide them so normal users cant see them. Kong staff can still see your thread, agus.

Crowspiracies if I’ve ever seen them. As said, they can hide forums, but not specific threads.

PROOF: Vegard posted pics of all the secret mod stuff

See above. I will again express that I’m too apathetic to lie to you about something trivial. The most Vegard would have had access to beyond the hide/edit posts on peoples’ posts would have been the forum mod forum which is deader than a doornail. The most activity it gets is when admins use it to make threads for other forums, then they move those threads to the actual forum. Always bugs me to be fooled into thinking someone is actually posting there.


All this said, there have been instances and times where threads have been deleted purposefully. I remember back when arcaneCoder was active, I was told he’d delete old threads in OT just to keep things tidy. Whether that’s true or not, I can’t remember clearly enough to give a definite answer to.

The only instance I can remember ever of a thread being outright deleted is when a guy quoting himself 250 times.

This too. If some alt is thread spamming enough, we’ll delete threads and posts, but I try to have at least one other person around as covering my ass when I do it. This is the rare exception to the rule, not the rule.

You’ve been previously disallowed from making forum games. Making a new account does not negate that.

Topic: Forum Games / General Thread

If someone decides to interrupt and/or disrupt a game you are in or have made, always always always send me a message and flag it instead of responding to it. In this particular instance, it has been made clear many times that the only resolution is to ignore and flag.

Please keep this in mind. Makes my life a tiny bit easier.
