Topic: Off-topic / What badge are all of you except for aguspal working on getting right now? :3

Some Steam badges, probably.

Don’t craft then yet, though. If you do that now, you’ll just get a coupon. If you wait until a Steam sale (which should be happening in a few weeks) you’ll get a special trading card. You can use that to craft more badges or sell them. If you sell them, depending on how many you have, you should be able to get at least one free game out of it.

Topic: Kongregate / Chat Rooms that will be Closing on Nov. 3

Originally posted by JohannasGarden:

Players are showing a clear tendency to be more active in game-specific chat rooms and private rooms, and are consequently chatting less in our regular rooms.

It doesn’t seem to have been pointed out yet, but it should be acknowledged that this is a direct result of the changes to how chatrooms load and function. If you’re in a single player game, chat won’t load until you force it to. This led to a noticeable drop in active and total chat users right after it was implemented. Secondly, if you’re in a multiplayer game, chat will automatically load, but place you into a multiplayer room. Only when you click over to the regular room tab are you placed into a regular room.

The rise of multiplayer rooms and the fall of regular rooms can easily be explained by the changes to how chatrooms load and function. Private rooms have always been great, and several fantastic third-party scripts have been created. The added abilities of these scripts (which, really, should have been native features from launch) add an entire new layer of appeal to private rooms versus public rooms – whitelists, kicks, bans. Plus, the unmoderated nature adds an extra benefit.

I think the relatively unmoderated state of most rooms (unowned, no room moderators, etc.) has helped push people away from chat in general, but especially regular chat rooms. However, that’s another topic entirely, I suppose.

As you may know, Kongregate isn’t shrinking but it is shifting a bit over time.

I believe that, and it’s a bit silly to think or say otherwise (and I’m sure I have said it at some point, too). Kongregate’s focus is, and has been for a long time, fundamentally changing. The site started out as a casual, hobby flash gaming site and has turned into a paying-first, multiplayer fest of poorly made and managed games. However, the fact that this thread and the resulting closures is a direct reaction to the conscious decisions made by the site’s administration should not remain unacknowledged.

Let me try to change the subject. Off-topic actually had a somewhat decent idea (even if the thread is a bit of a train wreck) about finding out your post/day ratio. I used this site to figure out how many days it’s been since I registered this account (tomorrow is day 900, hype). My result is 16.18 posts per day, approximately.

What’s yours?
