Topic: Technical Support / Middle-clicking trending games does not open in new tab

Firefox 30.0, Windows 7. Every other website middle-click opens in a new tab. Kongregate main page apparently does not want to cooperate. Any of the games in the ‘trending’ box (which I often want to click to load to claim the kongpanion and bonus points while perusing other games in the main page) load in the same window, making me swear at my screen a lot. I do not want to have to wait for it to pop up and then find the name again and middle click. Recommended games etc open in a new tab (properly).

Topic: Kongregate / Predatory ads

I’m not running an adblocker, but my script blocker blocks these new ads because they’re not hosted by Kong. I’m also not going to allow them if Kong isn’t going to screen them for predatory content, suitability, or annoyance. I’d rather contine to tip developers that make games that I want to see, rather than destroy my eyes being submitted to ads to give them a fraction of a cent.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

Stop the search bar from automatically picking the first option on the list when I enter a name and hit enter. If I am searching for something that exists, it will be at the top of the search results, and if I’m not, I don’t want to go to something completely different! And if I’m searching for something that isn’t a game, and get sent to a game, it is really annoying! No other search bars work the way yours does, everyone elses makes you tab or arrow keys for suggested results while enter ALWAYS takes you to the full search results. It also does this if I hit enter before the dropdown has loaded, so I can’t even try to beat it that way, and I have no idea where I’m being sent in that case as I haven’t even SEEN the dropdown.

Topic: Kongregate / Downrated comments on old games

Oh alright, I guess I just encountered a few games in a row with only contentless comments, and saw a pattern that wasn’t really there. I generally only downrank offensive or incorrect comments.

Topic: Kongregate / Downrated comments on old games

I could understand if it was a few comments like that, but it will be every comment on the main screen. I realise the examples I gave were a bit contentless, I’ll try and find some others.

Topic: Kongregate / Downrated comments on old games

Several someones have been downvoting ALL comments on old games. I load up an old game and see all the recent comments have -5 or more when all they say is “I played this for hours” or “good game 4/5” etc. Is this the spammers trying to get their own back? Is it a bot? It doesn’t move unhidden comments up, it just shows 5 hidden comments on the main game page. Why are people doing this?

It would be nice to be able to sort through favorites, or put them in a set order or something. The stuff I favourited most recently isn’t always stuff I want to go back to straight away. I’t be nice to have folders or something even!

Topic: Kongregate / Reset Generation

I sure hope you’re joking jodybrai. I couldn’t stand the voices, all the female characters are depicted in an uber-sexist way, and rescuing princesses? Please. Any princess that waits to be rescued isn’t worth rescuing. I could not hate this game more if I tried, and I hate Nokia and Kong for putting that farce of a game on here.

Topic: Kongregate / [Suggestion] Proposal for User Reviews

How about instead of the reviews having a good/bad rating on how good they think the game is, there is a “I found this review helpful?” Y/N rating? In fact can we just put that on the comments anyway? Then I can mark down all of the ones that say “BBBBBBBBBBAAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDDGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS HURRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!”

I think then it’s completely useless, and people would still just vote “Voted for badges 5/5.”

But yeah there is a way to suggest a game for badges: Rate it high.

Hmm. Well it’d be a good one in conjunction with the voting comments as spam/voting comments up or down. It’d still be nice to know which games are able to get badges; how are we to know if they have implemented the Kongregate API?

I have an idea. Some people complain that calls for badges on certain games clog up the comments; why not add a voting thing next to the rating that would display something like “X people think this game should have badges”. If the game hasn’t implemented the Kongregate API, then maybe it could just say that the game can’t be given badges rather than have the voting thing.

It wouldn’t have to influence which games get badges or anything ;)

Topic: Kongregate / Chat/Game Page Redesign -Now Launched!

Well at first I thought my Kong was broken because I couldn’t see badges/challenges under the game where they used to be. How am I supposed to quickly check whether a game has badges while it is loading now? (they used to load before the game + chat had finished loading so all I had to do was scroll down)

There is no chat mute button. Nothing like trying to concentrate on a game and having (usually) inane chat scrolling constantly (I know, I can open a different tab, but I’m worried it will still lag. I don’t want you to improve the lag, I want to be able to turn off a feature I NEVER use)

As someone else said, it really LOOKS like a beta due to it being boxy and the chat options box not being distinct from the background.

I’d like to have game info tab be the one that comes up automatically if you’re going to leave it like this. I come here for the games. If I want to meet new people, I leave the computer and go outside gasps of shock all round
