May i ask why people get banned?

You don’t even need to ask this question. Every time somebody is banned the Kong administrators post the reason why on their profile.

Topic: Kongregate / Is it really against Kongregate rules?

Originally posted by cop2077:

This is a game site for kids/young and some adults. It is not a site where you get pictures of naked body parts (taken in the shower). So now you can ask yourself why you ask for those things on Kongregate? and why you don’t ask for those things on sites where people are adults and share the same interest? The only answer I can come up with is that you are pedophile and KG shouldn’t allow people like you on their site.

Oh you’re trolling.

Some up people get turned on by feets, hands and other body parts. Don’t ask kids and young people for such pictures in a game site cause you could be seen poorly.

Ironically your profile’s age says 29. So much for just “kids” on this site.

DOTD is not a game of chance. I have zero problem with the admins intervening when obviously bogus tags crop up like that.

When the user base cannot be trusted to moderate themselves, someone has to step in. Why do you think we even need moderators and admins to clean up messes? Because people frequently cant be trusted to play nice.

Its so good when a single moderator and admin knows so much better what the people want. Its like restraining and drugging you for “your own” safety or stripping you from public rights and invigilating.
Looks like NSA got into kong.

Intelligence agencies have always dominated the internet. It’s where trainees get their practice in manipulating various systems, and where agency retirees hang out to break up any semblance of real political organizing with various degrees of “trolling.” (It’s the bullet you don’t hear that kills you; it’s the troll you don’t see that gets to you.)

What about the trolls you do see like bobby71983 who have obviously never played the game?

MadShrump, I’ll agree you with on all but the MMO rating. I don’t believe MMO ratings are fake, they don’t need to be. That genre has a ridiculously large fanbase that you probably underestimate. Kongregate is rarely the first host site for these games, and so people come from wherever it was hosted before to sign up to kong just to play that game. These people will give 5/5 to a game without much thought.

Still, if this turns out to be true, it isn’t too hard to imagine other manipulations taking place.

They also probably change the game ratings if it drops too much. Even if those ratings are legit as in a bunch of fans who use to like the game gave it a low star rating.

That appears to be the merit of this thread.

Topic: Wartune / Copyright Infringment

You can call it what you want but it would still be wrong to call it theft due to both dictionary and legal definitions. Also copyright infringement would only be truly bad in cases like Wartune that use stuff to make a profit.

True. And in China copyright infringement is running rampant and no measures against it are enforced because the market is too big to be ignored. Bill Gates once said that about 97% of all Windows OS there have not been paid for.

I would call BS on that claim since there’s no way they would be able to find that out. Maybe he just meant China though.

The reality is that copyright infringement IS theft. It’s just that it’s become so easy and cheap for people to do it that they think it’s their right to take stuff that isn’t theirs, call it “piracy” and pretend it’s OK because Jack Sparrow is k00l as a pirate. It’s called “intellectual PROPERTY” for a reason, and it’s still theft.

Nope. Once again you copy something when you infringe on copyrights. In order for it to be theft something has to be TAKEN. There is a huge difference between COPYING and TAKING. This isn’t just an dictionary definition. Even legally it isn’t called theft.

GrindQuest certainly didn’t do a huge profit, if any at all (maybe the developper received a small fee from Kong ? Apart from that, it’s a 100% free game).

And it wasn’t developped by a company, but by a lone programmer.

I mostly wanted to point out that the 2 games weren’t handled the same way, apparently.

Or, possibly, Wartune developpers paid some cash to Bethesda (or whatever company) so they could use the music from Morrowind (or whatever game). How can we know they didn’t ?

I was merely mentioning the fact that even if a game doesn’t make a profit out of someone else’s work, it still lacks creativity and for that, can be blamed somewhat… But anyway, the point is that if Wartune DID pay Bethesda and all other developpers they used art/music/stuff from, it would be in the credits, which isn’t obviously. Therefore, there is here Copyright Infringement.

And as for what Kegfarms said, it has more to do with semantics (and maybe law and court vocabulary) than reality. Of course you don’t steal physical objects, but stealing other people’s ideas is, for me, stealing nonetheless !

Nope. The reality is copyright infringement isn’t theft. To describe it simply is that copyright infringement makes a copy of something while theft actually takes something. Also you don’t steal ideas when you pirate. Hell, you don’t even make a copy of their ideas. That would be plagiarism and not copyright infringement.

As any paying service/game/intellectual property, from the moment you make profit out of someone else’s work, that DOES harm !
As a WoW gamer, I find it pretty lame for other companies to try and make profit out of Blizzard’s numerous years of hard work (unless said “GrindQuest” was completely free and intended as a fan-based parody… but even so… one could just be creative and make his/her own work and effort to not steal from others)
Just my opinion though… Well… maybe not, since THERE ARE laws protecting against copyright theft.
Personally, I pay my games (be it on Steam, iTunes, PS3 or X360) and I find it really annoying to see such things either as piracy (from users point of view) as they don’t support developpers who DID work hard to bring things we enjoy, or copyright infringment as it violates the very work other did !

Anyway, since Kong and R2 doesn’t seem to care… Who am I to disagree ! Oo

Copyright infringement is not theft.
