Why? Western Digital is my favorite brand of hard drive. I’ve been using a Caviar Blue in my desktop for years.

Topic: Off-topic / Building my First Computer!!!

This is actually not quite the right Technical Support. This forum is meant for people to post issues that they’re having with Kongregate! Thus, I’m moving this to the Off-Topic forum.

That being said, I built my own computer a few years back, and there are indeed plenty of great resources out there for PC building. Particularly helpful is the Reddit subreddit Build A PC, which has plenty of people to use as resources as well as a number of links on the side to help first time builders.

You can pick a decent set of parts on the Logical Increments site (organized by budget), and you can use the PCPartPicker tools to determine compatibility of your parts.

Best of luck!

EDIT: Oh, and for a quick guide on assembly, I used this (slightly outdated) building guide here. The part suggestions in there won’t be relevant, but the basic process is the same :)

Yep, it’s been released! Have a link!

abraaz: It was, but there’s a pretty significant sticky-blindness that people have, and many people skip right past stickies and don’t even notice posts there. So it’s generally better to keep things as normal threads!

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [Kongregate Feature] Subforums!

Originally posted by Shadowhopeful:

I’m tempted to say there should be a specific off-topic forum, but I suspect splitting the amount of content in here is probably too much of a risk this late in the life cycle. Leaving just the one for faction recruitment is good for the time being.

I’m actually considering making a separate off-topic one, so that people still playing can talk about game topics, but you guys could still have your World Cup threads and whatnot.

Also, we’ve lost our prestigious sub-100 forum ID D:

Well, you do still have number 65. The general subforum has a different number, but Tyrant itself still has its number.

PS. Is it possible to rename it to “General Tyrant Discussion”? Would make ambiguous title less ambiguous. Otherwise, I like it.

I’ve just changed it, but I’m not sure I like it. The name is fortunately not hard coded, but…

PPS. Also wondering if it’s possible to give more space to the general forum on the main page, and perhaps make the recruitment subforum just a banner in the top? After all, it kills the point if we have 2 subforums and no main forum.

…this is hard coded. The General forum should be considered the “main” forum, which is why I’ve put it at the top. :)

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [Kongregate Feature] Subforums!

bows I do my best. Just took a moment to get everything moved. I’m sure I haven’t moved all the faction threads over, but I did all the active ones. If you want to start a new faction thread, you can do so there.

Potentially. What other threads would need to be there that aren’t recruitment? I would think all the inter-faction stuff about events and whatnot would be pretty good threads for the whole community, but I’m open to hearing input on it.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [Kongregate Feature] Subforums!

I was just fiddling with the Recruitment one, but it should be working. :)

As for the mods, I can see them listed overall on the Tyrant forum page. It makes sense to have them visible on the subforums too, though, so I’ll see if we can get that in there. Good call!

Took me a minute to realize what you meant. Do you mean new forum mods for Tyrant? I think trickyrodent is actually working on that right now, so hopefully we’ll get some in here soon!

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [Kongregate Feature] Subforums!

Hey guys!

You may have noticed a recent change in the way the Tyrant forum is currently laid out. Tyrant now has subforums! So far, I’ve made a General subforum for most topics, and a Faction Recruitment subforum, for all faction recruitment (hopefully that was obvious).

This will help organize the forum a bit better for you guys, and if you have any suggestions for new subforums, feel free to suggest them here. I can’t guarantee I’ll make all of them happen (since too many subforums will just splinter the community), but I’ll be glad to consider ideas!

You can read my main thread about subforums if you’d like to.

and a brony subforum please

and a furry porn subforum

we also need a hot girls subforum on ot where we can post pics of bikini models


…Maybe. But those sound too specific. Maybe a separate section for the “Official ____________” threads?

I actually considered joking about that. A subforum for JUST crow-related topics. But if I do it, you’re not allowed to comment in any other forums! ;D

I suggest also putting up a subforum for a certain Pokemon that’s getting beyond popular in OT. This will probably cut down OT’s activity by 50%.

You mean Pichu, right?

(Yes, I know who you actually mean.)

Can forum mods suggest subforums for the forums?

I have a few in mind for a couple forums.

Only ideas that are delivered with bribes will be accepted.

Bobby: Exactly! Game forums in particular are very busy and often very cluttered, so that’s going to be a start of our project.

MmeBunneh: Like I said above, it’s going to be for particularly busy forums, but too many subdivisions will be overkill, and if there’s not much activity, you’re right, it WILL probably kill the community more. So we’re probably going to try to avoid subforums in less active forums. :)

CROW: I actually considered joking about that. A subforum for JUST crow-related topics. But if I do it, you’re not allowed to comment in any other forums! ;D

Topic: Kongregate / [New Feature] Subforums!

Where can we see a example?

We’re planning to put one into place possibly tomorrow. It was going to be today, but we decided to give the developer of the game a chance to offer suggestions so that we can get it all set up right the first time for their game. :)

But I’ve put up an example screenshot below!

1) How many subforums can be part of one forum?

I don’t think there’s a limit on the number of subforums, but obviously we don’t want to over-categorize, because then it kind of stops being useful.

2) Will all game forums eventually have subforums?

No, not all game forums will have subforums. This will be used to help organize forums that are particularly busy or cluttered, like ones with lots of recruitment threads or lots of “add me!” threads (like I mentioned in the OP).

3) How will you be able to access them?

They’ll be accessible from the game’s forum page like before. With Mob Wars, for example, the page I just linked will instead show two subforums, and some of the threads in them, like this.

Please keep in mind that this example isn’t totally organized (since you can clearly see “add me” threads in the “General” subforum).

Errr… have there been subforums added yet?

The ability to make subforums exists, but we haven’t started making them yet. But we will soon!

Topic: Kongregate / [New Feature] Subforums!

Hey everyone! Since you’re here looking at this in the forums, I think it’s safe to assume you are at least somewhat interested in forum posts. So this is an update you might enjoy. Today, we’re adding the ability to have subforums on Kongregate!

Once any forum gets a subforum, all posts will have to go into a subforum. We’ll start by adding them to a couple of game forums, so that we can separate regular threads from, say, recruitment threads or “add me!” threads or things like that. From there, we’ll consider adding it to forums that we think might benefit from it. This post is mostly a “look at this thing we made” so that you aren’t as surprised to see such a cool new feature happening around various forums.

If a game has a forum linked to it, you’ll now be able to see each subforum’s posts underneath the game on the game page.

As always, if you encounter any bugs or have ideas or input or suggestions for subforums, feel free to post them here!

Don’t forget to mention what comes out of the Soda Machine after someone else inserts something!

For example, to respond to Axiss32 inserting AITGBot, I’d say “You get Robroccoli, who mentions broccoli at least once in response to every question you ask.”

I insert a red tree seed.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: Minor bug fixes and text fixes

Even if you don’t see the button, you can get to the same thing by clicking the Contact Us link at the bottom of any Kongregate page and choose “Report a Game Bug” to get the same effect.

The button shouldn’t be removed, though. Can you post a screenshot of the appropriate area of the game page? It should be underneath the game’s rating under the game.

Unfortunately, I’m afraid that is NOT how the forum logic works. Please do not create multiple recruitment threads, as that becomes spammy very quickly, and spam makes me a sad panda.
