Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

No idea if this has been mentioned or not because I’ve not read the thread at all but…

With the new Kongpanion thing showing what the badges of the day will be for the coming week, can we have some sort of advance warning for Mondays too? At the moment Monday is the only badge of the day you can’t plan ahead for and it also just happens to be the one day of the week I am very busy from the early morning to late at night. I get about 45 mins of my day for internetting and I have other things to do than Kong, and sometimes the BOTD would take longer than that to get anyway even if I devoted that whole 45 mins to it. If there were one day I’d like to know in advance about, it’s the only one I currently cannot know in advance about and it upsets me.

Ideally though, there’d be no advance warning of BOTDs at all. They’re supposed to be a badge of the DAY, not badge of the day-and-also-a-number-of-days-before. However, if we’re going to get advance warning, it should be fair for all days and Mondays should not be discriminated against.

The same thing happens in Opera but strangely not in IE (10). I tried Opera both signed in and out of Kongregate. IE was not signed in.

Topic: Technical Support / Game loading ads non-skippable

For the last week or so I’ve noticed that the game loading ads on Kong have become unskippable. The countdown at the bottom of the game window just goes into the negatives until the ad ends (E.g. You can skip this add in 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… 0… -1… -2… -3… -4…)

Has anyone else experienced this and is there a way to fix it? I can post screenshots if it helps. This is not happening on any particular ad or any particular game, it’s been every game I’ve been on for the past week or so.

Topic: Technical Support / Excessive game loading ads

You know, the ones that play in the game window while the game loads. The ones that say “This ad will close automatically” at the bottom, and then after a few seconds give you a link to “close” it early and get to your game. Well just recently they’ve been getting a bit excessive. There have been ads with a border that appears around the actial video, obscuring the “close” link, and ads that also bring up huge banners that cover the bottom half of my screen, also obscuring the “close” link. I feel that these additional pop-ups are excessive and seem to be crafty attempts to get me to accidentally click on their ad when I actually mean to click the “close” link, because it’s now hidden by the ad.

Can someone monitor these ads and maybe take action to remove the excessive ones?

Topic: Technical Support / Villainous save files

So I started working on the Villainous badges a couple of days ago. Already had the easy, but I got one of the mediums and then stepped away to do some housework and when I came back to my laptop it had restarted itself for updates. Went back to the game and I’d lost my save file, so I started again. I saw in the description something about save files not working if you clear your cache and what have you, which I figured must have happened automatically due to the restart.

Started again and played on-off for about 2 days, got the second medium and was (over) half way to the hard (10 golds). This morning I’ve gone back to the game and the page and game is running really slow. My girlfriend told me the game she was playing yesterday did the same thing when she went back to it and she had to refresh the page a few times to get it working again. I was reluctant to refresh after losing my save file before but the game was unplayable as it was, so refresh I did. I had hoped it wouldn’t be too much of a problem as I clearly was not clearing my cache.

Save file lost.

Not spending another 2 days getting myself back to where I was in this game. Any way I can get my save file back or is it just a deserved 30 points lost forever?

And why does Villainous have such problems with save files? No other game I’ve played has deleted save files when I’ve cleared my browsing data so why does Villainous claim to have this problem? And why can it in fact not even keep a save file through a page refresh?

Topic: Kongregate / Canadian law?

Was just randomly glancing over the terms and conditions of the recent Family Guy challenge and I noticed the following:

“In compliance with Canadian law, Canadian winners will be required to correctly answer a mathematical skill question as a condition of being named a valid winner.”

What?

Topic: Off-topic / Dividing by Zero

Well, you’ve assumed that because x/x = 1 (for x != 0), then 0/0 = 1 too. This is not true. Can we not say by the same logic that because 0/x = 0 (for x != 0), then 0/0 = 0?

Clearly 0/0 cannot take two different values, simultaneously. Hence, it is undefined.

(If we take limits as well as equalites, it can also be argued that 0/0 = infinity and also -infinity too.)

Topic: Off-topic / Dividing by Zero

For x > 0,
x/0 = undefined.
lim a→0- (x/a) = -infinity.
lim a→0+ (x/a) = infinity.
lim a→0 (x/a) = undefined.

For x < 0,
x/0 = undefined.
lim a→0- (x/a) = infinity.
lim a→0+ (x/a) = -infinity.
lim a→0 (x/a) = undefined.

For x = 0,
0/0 = undefined.
lim a→0- (0/a) = 0.
lim a→0+ (0/a) = 0.
lim a→0 (0/a) = 0.

lim a→0- (a/a) = 1.
lim a→0+ (a/a) = 1.
lim a→0 (a/a) = 1.

Think that’s about it. Anyone notice any I’ve missed?

Flawless should win. They are better than Diversity but everone seems to prefer them because of their comedy aspect. They’re both good, I just don’t think Diversity’s dances ‘flow’ as well as a dance should. They just try to fit too much into the dance and it spoils it for me.

Also, I really hope Susan Boyle doesn’t win. She’s an average singer, I’ll give her that, but OMG SHE’S UGLY THEREFORE HER SINGING SKILLS GET MULTIPLIED BY x5000!!!!! No. It doesn’t work like that. I don’t give a shit what she looks like, her talent is singing, and she’s nothing special when it comes to that. I’m pretty sure most people actually in Britain have realised this by now, but the rest of the world have had her rammed down their throats nearly as much as we have, and since they haven’t seen the rest of the talent on offer, they think she’s amazing. Dear the rest of the world: Fuck off.

I’m also rooting for Stavros Flatley. Just to see the Queen’s face at the Royal Variety.

Your the same as me! Diversity dont deserve to win. Susan Boyle is just ugly.


I also think hollie is a little bit selfish… She cried just because she couldnt sing again at that particular time! Flawless and stavros Flatly deserve to win :)

Wow. Judging someone by their looks? Dude seriously. And you thisisnotasmile.. What’s good about Susan Boyle is that she’s not pretty, and she sings GREAT because most singers are pretty and they sing great. So really how bout YOU Fuck off.

I’ve said she’s an okay singer. To me, that’s nothing special. I don’t like the type of music she sings, and I’m allowed to form my opinion around that if I want to. The fact that she is ugly has absolutely no link to whether she is talented or not, and is therefore irrelevant.

Er… Yes they do. Trolls are actually intelligent people. They know what they’re doing. They annoy you, subtly, to try and get some sort of reaction. They do it for laughs, but they know what they’re doing.

Spammers are the ones who just spam.

Ahh, I see.

What about the clueless trolls who don’t have a clue of what they’re doing is wrong?

You mean like Kingzak? They are not trolls, nor are they spammers. They are just morons.
