Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

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: Serious Discussion / Request for college/university students to help in Psychology Study

Twilight_Ninja: Thank you for that, I’ll keep it around for future surveys. We were using this site specifically because our professor required us to use it.




Ceasar:
“If you don’t know proper survey methods, then you need to learn them FAST, before you start publishing stuff that people might take seriously.”
Honestly I have no desire to be a researcher, I prefer to be a clinical worker, as such the research aspect of the feild was never high on my list of things to learn that in depth, I have the basics down. My partner is planning to be a researcher, sadly he seems to know less than I do about it. I would rather never publish anything, I prefer to simply help individuals and get paid for a good day’s work.

“You’re asking for responses from Kongregate forum users (and Serious Discussion users, at that.) That may imply several things that may or may not translate well to college video game users in general.”
The post being on kongregate shouldn’t pose a problem, I don’t see why asking people to take the survey here would make it not transelate as well. One of the requirements as listed in the first post, is that those taking it need to be in their second semseter of college/university or further and play games. Because of this it should translate just fine; that being said, maybe you meant that it was only kongregate users it wouldn’t be a very good sample, that would be possibly true, however I posted it to a few other web sites as well as provided it to college/university students at my own school. So I don’t see that to be a big problem. I should have some variation of people due to the various websites, that way it doesn’t only impact my own school and their game play.

“Are you just going to assume that they played the same amount then as now? That’s a horrible assumption. And it’s a missed opportunity.”
Actually I had thought of this, however due to the limitations on time for the study and the wish for it not to be too complex (by professors wishes), we trimmed a lot of possible things out to make it easier to handle.

“There’s a question about sex AND about gender. Is that really needed, especially since your total sample size is only around 100?”
To be honest, no it may not be needed, I felt like it should be on there, it might help explain any outliers that may pop up in sexes. My logic is if someone is sex:male but they are gender:feminine, if there are sex differences then there may be a gender difference as well. I think a gender difference is more important than a sex difference in this case personally.

“You don’t ask for even an approximate age, except about being over 18… are you going to assume everyone taking the survey is a traditional student? Furthermore, behaviors (and GPA’s) may change in different years of college, but you don’t ask what year the person is in, except that they have at least one semester completed.”
The 18 years or older question is for APA regulation issues. I go to a non-traditional university. We weren’t really looking at ages for this specific study, hence the approximate age questions being left out. I didn’t think about the change in different years of college, I haven’t changed between my first and last one, so I personally never thought of it, and I guess no one else did, as you are the only person to have brought this up. I never would have thought of that as being a factor.

“You don’t ask for country, despite this being online.”
I didn’t think of that, I figured that it would be about the same in each country which would help show some impacts or none at all or between different countries everything would jump about so much that it would show no impact between the 3 tested items. So country for me wasn’t a priority, I’m not sure if my partner even thought of it.


I think I’ve addressed everything you said satisfactory, if I didn’t please alert me to the section where I didn’t do so and I’ll try to explain more so for you.

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.

FinalStrife7: You’re right, that was overlooked when we were originally modifying that question, it was supposed to be which genre you play most, but we forgot to change the question.

Twilight_Ninja: We’re new to this specific system we weren’t sure how to implement something like that, also I know I wouldn’t have thought of that specific problem, not sure of my partner.

TheBSG & vikaTae: For people who seem to absolutely hate this thread, you both seem awfully stuck on it. I’m fine with this, you guys are bumping the topic for me so thank you I appreciate it. However could the two of you please stop belittling it, it’s not perfect, I knew that well before you felt the need to point it out. We’re students, we’re not always going to have the best anything, we can’t think of everything on the planet, if we could, chances are very high that we wouldn’t need the survey in the first place because we’d already unequivocally know the answer.

Good luck with that one. Whilst many of us here have one or multiple degrees under our belts, and of the rest many are currently studying at university, a great many, probably even a majority, are not studying at US universities. US universities are the only ones that use GPA. Most use a points system or D/M/P basis.

So you are immediately alienating most of your potential audience in an online setting, by basically not bothering to understand how universities outside of your own country, do things.

I didn’t know that, no one in my class, nor anyone on the IRB board told us this, I figured most of the systems used GPA.

Topic: Off-topic / Request for college/university students to help in Psychology Study

TheInternetRules: Sex is male/female, gender is masculine/feminine. Also the multiple choice question was written wrong, someone else had pointed that out, we cannot change the survey at this point. It was originally that but with check boxes but then we changed it to what do you play most, however when it was modified the statement for which you play most was overlooked. I apologize for that.

It was suggested to me that I make this post in the Serious Discussion instead of the Off-topic section.
Thanks to TheBSG for showing me how to create links in the forums.

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: Off-topic / Request for college/university students to help in Psychology Study

To all: The survey will be dead by the end of March, if you are in your second semester of either college or university and your birthday falls within this time, you are acceptable for the study, however I ask that you please wait until you hit 18 before you join the survey due to legal and professional reasons.

To graveyard890: sadly no, we require 18+ years of age.
To HappyAlcoholic: I’ll try that too.
To MlleBunneh: I hope so too, trying a number of gaming sites, only received a total of 5 people so far.
To lei_wulong: That is fine.

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.
