I don’t see why anyone would bother with that, the idea of it is stupid in and of itself. Kongregate is owned by Gamestop. In all honesty there doesn’t need to be ads on this site for that very reason in the first place. They’re only there to add some extra money into gamestop’s pockets. They bought this free to use website which was an immediate loss of lots of money, buy something that’s completely free for everyone doesn’t make a real profit in the first place. It would be a waste of time for them to put that in, when it might alienate users who might decide not to show up here, or might choose to use amazon or some other game company cause gamestop was being an annoyance to them.
If they were worried about money they’d get rid of all the useless crap they kept ahold of constantly, all the inactive accoutns that have been sitting there for 4+ years, all the old forum stuff that are locked, game messages after X time has passed, etc. They could cut how much room they need to store their data in half maybe even better if they got rid of all that extra baggage, they choose not to, and the reason is because money isn’t really a problem.

Topic: Kongregate / March '15 Suggestion Thread

We should be able to remove everything that shows up on our activity feed regardless of what it is. I’ve found 2 things we can’t get rid of readily for some reason:

1. I haven’t been able to remove developer responses to things I’ve said on their games. I click to have it removed, and it goes away, until the page is refreshed. The only way to perma delete it is to block and keep the game page blocked, if you block it and refresh the comment is gone but if you unblock it it shows back up. I’d like to just remove it from my feed like I can replies to shouts on other people’s pages.

2. When a lot of people all added me (in the past before I found the option to not have that crap posted to my feed) on the same day, they bunched in my feed saying ‘this person, this person, that person, the X others added you’ it only tells me I can ‘unfollow’ them, which removes it until I refresh, only issue is I’m not following any of them, they’re following me. You can remove them if they’re individual ‘person added you’ but when they bunch together into one that says a bunch of people added you, then it doesn’t allow you to ‘remove item’ only ‘unfollow’ which does no good.

and a different item that I’d like to see changed:
I think we should be able to delete the ‘game messages’ in our ‘My Messages" section, maybe I don’t want to block a game, but everytime it gets updated I don’t need to have every previous update message saved, that’s pointless. For instance right now I have 15 game messages from the same game all telling me about the recent updates. Today it updates, that’s info that might be important, but the last update 3 months ago, the one 3.2 months ago, the one 8 months ago. No one cares, we can’t play on the previous updates, we only play current updates, why have this stuff saved?

I think that on special days, such as holidays, or even valentines day, the Kongregate background should be changed for however long that holiday lasts. So for Valentines day, there will be a background with pinkish hearts, and a game that has something to do with valentines day, and this would do two things.
1. Advertise for that game, (on this site only)
2. Be nice for current members and visitors :D

Same goes for Christmas and Hanukkah, Stuff like that. If there’s no game that matches, there should just be the wallpaper e.e

They’d end up missing a lot of holidays which might ‘offend’ the sensible people that make up the general populous, and if they planned to hit every single holiday, that would be insane amounts of work as nearly every day on the calender is a holiday somewhere. :-/

Regarding Chat/Forum limitations for new users:

Then the account must go through a probationary period of (until they achieve a certain level 5-8-ish, or a set time period 1-2 weeks) before they’re allowed to join the general populace. This would counter the pretty commonplace behavior of banned/silenced users instantly re-rolling, and (in the case of account-level-based requirements) require an actual human to invest time in the account before allowing it into the general populace. It would significantly reduce the value proposition for spambots, and hopefully encourage them to look elsewhere. Terrible people would remain terrible, but hopefully having to waste hours of their own time before bothering other people would encourage them to get their fix in easier venues too.

I don’t see this as something that would work too well. For just one reason, if they’re already a moderate level, they can easily just log into games they’ve played before and re-obtain achievements within minutes, beyond that it’s not hard to get to high levels fairly quickly if you play games you’re good at. I made it from level 2 to 65 (with all achievements obtained besides for the Swords and Potion game since I hated it) in like 8 months. I probably made it into the 20s in a week simply because I still had almost all the saves for all these games, so I just had to log into the game and poof all achievements. Only a few handfuls had to be replayed.

Some suggestions, also want opinions on what you guys think of them.


2. Allow us to edit shouts and whisper messages to users too like how we can in Forum Posts, sometimes when Im sending a shout or whisper to users I make a mistake on some words or forget something and I cannot edit it so I am forced to post another whisper/shout or just add it on the shout comments. So that is why I think we should be able to edit shouts and whispers too.


4. When someone posts in a chat room or Pms you, put a sound so users can know when someone chats when they are in other tabs. Also give an option to turn on/turn off chat sounds if you do not want to hear the sound.

For 2. people would abuse the hell out of this, they send you something nasty, they wait til you see it then change it so they don’t get in trouble, etc.
I’ve been hoping for 4 for a while, noises that you can turn on and off, change the volume of, etc. something like skype would be nice. I routinely do other things on my computer with chat up and forget about it. If someone logs in and PMs me I don’t realize it until an hour or so later in which they’ve often left thinking I was ignoring them. :-/

We should be able to remove anything that shows up on our activity feed regardless of what it is, after all it is our feed.

I haven’t been able to remove developer responses to things I’ve said on their games. I click to have it removed, and it goes away, until the page is refreshed. The same happens when lots of people all added me really close together, they bunched in my feed saying ‘this person, this person, that person, the other, this guy, that guy, those ones too all added you’ it only tells me I can ‘unfollow’ them, which removes it until I refresh, only issue is I’m not following any of them, they’re following me. You can remove them until they group up, then it doesn’t allow you to ‘remove item’ because it’s 2+ items in one.

I’d also like to be able to delete Game Messages, I have messages in there from before December, messages that mean 0 shits to me, but there’s no delete option.

I would think that it would be easier on your systems if we removed unnecessary things from our feeds and as such, there would be less things to store and keep track of on the servers. Maybe not much space saved, but every bit counts.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Suggestion] Have a suggestion? This is the place.

I suggest giving a use or removing the science officer and trainer in the alliance, their functions aren’t available and haven’t been since the game started. Either give them something to do or get rid of them it’s fustrating.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Does the U.S. really need so much military "defense"?

beauval: I completely agree, though I think on top of that the spending for self defense in the US is simply moronic, I’m not sure how other countries do it, but companies win favor with politians in order to get inflated contracts to build things that they could build with half the money, and the other companies that aren’t in favor will do the same thing, they hike up their prices to build things but try to just barely bit lower than the others while still keeping a sizable chunk of change even if everything that can go wrong does for them. Everything, not just self defense companies, do this when it comes to the government, the US government would spend 1,000 USD on a hammer they could buy for 4 USD simply because they won’t pay attention to how they spend money.
It also doesn’t help that in regards to this self defense contracts the US tends to sell new things to other countries. For example, not too ofly long ago there was a new ‘stealth’ helecopter that couldn’t be seen on any radar created at the time. America paid to have it made, then sold them off instead of keeping them for the military, they government then turned around and paid to have radars made that could find said helecopters. This kind of completely defeats the purpose of the self defense budget for all but the handful of people high up in the government that are making outrageous amounts of money from this wrongful act.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Ideas and suggestions

I’d like the PVP to not be a complete piece of shit personally. i’m tried of being put against people over 2 times my player level, there’s no way in hell my units will survive their full first turn unless their units don’t attack me. it would take all my units hitting one of theirs for 8+ turns to kill a unit. Broken PoS PvP is broken, this is bad and you should feel bad; you should also be ashamed of the crap that you have created.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Revamping PVP

There’s no way to fix this broken PoS PVP system, I just want the goddamn badge that’s it if I could just get 3 PVP wins I’d be okay, but noooooooooo it put me a lvl 8 against a 13, I lost, me a lvl 8 against a lvl goddamn 30, i lost, me a lvl 9 against a lvl 20 i lost.
Lots of people act like that’s a fine comparason, they all talk about how i’m just bitching because it difficult. my maxed out amount of units that are the strongest i have get killed in one turn of theirs. useless crap game is useless crap.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Does the U.S. really need so much military "defense"?

The answer is no, England is the next biggest spender, and I believe the US spent around 10 times or so what they did, the US isn’t even listed in the top 10 safest countries. The money is going to waste, the US builds weapons that are superior to current defense that the US has, then they sell those items to other countries, the US military money spending is run by morons.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Official bugs thread

The PVP system is a complete piece of shit, you should be disgusted with it. I have been put with people significantly higher than me numerous times, my last one the person was 23 levels higher than me. What the hell…
You don’t put a level 8 against a lvl 31, that’s complete bull.

I won’t be playing this game until this problem is fixed.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

I would like to be able to remove posts on my wall that deal with multiple people friending me, you can remove posts if a single person friends you but when multiple people friend you in a short time period they’re grouped up and there is no remove button for the group, the grouping needs a remove button or they need not be grouped that way they can be deleted. I have two groups of random people friending me i’d like to remove the post saying they did such but can’t.
