Topic: Kongregate / Voting for Badges

Originally posted by greg:

The issue with this idea is that it actually gives the userbase LESS control over which games receive badges, as votes would be determined more by gameplays/exposure than by rating. How are gameplays determined? For the most part, by which games are placed on the homepage. How is homepage placement determined? For the most part, the user rating.

But there are some “sleeper” games that gradually rise in rating without ever being featured, and some games that get lots of homepage exposure without such high ratings because they’re released during a time period that’s not very competitive. In my opinion, the former group deserves badges more than the latter group, even though the latter group would almost certainly receive a higher quantity of votes.

Consider the following 2 scenarios and tell me which one you think gives more power to the users:

Ratings → homepage placement → gameplays → votes → badges

Ratings → badges

I see…

I think petitions and “need badges” comments will still occur, and this effort will be a lot of work for something that wouldn’t be an improvement at all. We already have a badge suggestions thread, and a badge graphics thread (both of which I’ve seen badges/badge graphics come from), and greg has made threads asking us to help us with badge graphics/names before, so it’s not as if we can’t be part of the process.

Oh, sorry I didn’t realize they already had a thread for this, sorry.

Topic: Kongregate / Not Allowed to Petition?

Thank you all for making me realize how stupid petitions are. They are annoying, and amount to nothing. So to whoever keeps them going, just stop and everyone will be happy! You won’t have to waste your time, and “Constructive comments” will be the only comments on games. Thanks to everyone!

Topic: Kongregate / Voting for Badges

Sorry about my other forum “Not allowed to Petition”, that completely changed my mind about them. I just want to clear up a few things, petitions are bad because they make most people mad, and they don’t amount to anything: “There is not a single badge on the entire site that was created as the result of a petition.”-Greg

So here’s my plan, and it involves voting for badges. I know you are thinking “well..we already do that, it’s called rating games” and I know but this system would work along with the rating system. The point is to make people feel needed in the process of badge making, even if they are not. Petitions make people feel like they are helping a game, but if you really want to help a game rate it highly, and in what I made up that would help the game just as it does now, but instead of going on the “Hot New Games” it would also go onto some voting list for badges.

Once a week, Ten games that were rated highly that don’t have badges get to be voted upon. You can only vote twice, either for one game twice or for two games once. Voting would last for a week, just in case you miss the first couple days. And the outcome of the top two games would be badges the following week. The top 5 games (behind 1 and 2) would stay on the following week for another chance. And the other 3 would be booted. Requests could be made for games, and even what the badges should be called.

Even if the results amount to nothing but numbers, people might be more happy about which games get badges. In the end Greg could still choose, but this might make it easier for him. A list of games which people want badges on, that are rated highly, would be easier than all the games on kong without badges.

I hope you like this plan, and I don’t blame you if you don’t, it’s fine! :)

“Shout or whisper” me if you have any questions.

We do. It’s called a rating.

Yeah but how bout having a system aside from rating just for badges

Even if the results meant nothing, it would get rid of those nasty comment chains!

Petitions make people feel like they are influencing greg, but if we voted it would be the same sort of idea.

Well ya know everyone who ever posted in a chain comment would if the rules were enforced. And that’s a great deal of the people.
