Topic: General Gaming / Idle Recruit Secret Medals

For red or blue, you actually get the medal awarded if you pick either of them •p (I tested with both ‘red’ and ‘blue’)

Also, CHARLSing, I do recommend watching the movie at some point (at least the first one)

I think the last game I played was Bejeweled 3, and I don’t remember there being any characters in that game. I guess my plate is filled with crunchy gems?

I haven’t personally gotten one, but Stuxnet is the worst one i’ve heard of (since it actually caused substantial physical damage).

Same here. I like the site, and will chat with the people in my room, but my time to actively play games is at a minimal because of school.

Topic: Off-topic / c++ question plz help?

Its a program designed to check for palindromes by reversing a number. For example, if num is 1234, rev will be 4, then 43, then 432, then 4321. 1234 !- 4321, so it will let you know it is not a palindrome.

Topic: Off-topic / Is Google Chromes 'Incognito' mode really private?

Personally, I do almost everything (except gaming here) in incognito mode, just because I’m paranoid and don’t want to be tracked through cookies (and incognito mode allows the cookies to disappear when I close the browser). Although I guess as a downside, when I’m doing research for a school project or something, it can be a little annoying if I need to go back and revisit a site on a later day because of a lack of stored history (which I sometimes combat by making lots of bookmarks).

Its not a perfect solution, but it does do a lot.

Topic: Off-topic / My laptop webcam keeps turning on

Something that several people I know like to do is to tape something opaque directly over the lens, so that you can’t by spied upon. If your computer has a jack for an external mic, you can put something else into that jack in order to prevent an internal mic from being used.

Topic: Idling to Rule the Gods / Create only what you want

I personally would love an ability to stop creating stuff after a certain point. For example, while idling with the game open to create materials for monuments, it would be great to be able to make the 100 plants for a garden without continuing past that point and using up the 250 extra water that I also need. I think going with a queue system for this would work?

Topic: Off-topic / Dragon Age: Origins being given away on Origin

Personally, I love this game, and I know several friends who love it too. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it is one of my favorite games.

I won’t be taking advantage of this offer, but that’s because I already own it. However, I will be telling some of my friends who haven’t played it yet.

Topic: Kongregate / October '14 Suggestion Thread

Please implement some way to toggle between the old lighter background and the new dark grey background. I realize that some people like the new background, but personally I find it rather depressing. I am not lying or exaggerating when I say that the new background is sucking a lot of the fun out of gaming here.

Topic: Kongregate / [Update] Game pages now have dark backgrounds!

To me, this actually seems really dark and depressing. Instead of having contrast with the original white background (especially with games that have non-conventional window sizes, requiring some black next to it), everything just mushes together into a state of drearyness. I know it may sound like I am overreacting or using hyperbole, but I’m not. Seeing this actually lowers my mood whenever I play games now.

Is there ever going to be a way to toggle this off? I miss my lighter background…

Topic: Off-topic / Now playing in a theatre near you

Guardians of the Galaxy was the most fun movie I’ve seen this year.

There aren’t any movies out now that I want to see. The next one I’m looking forward to is Interstellar (I’m so excited because I live pretty close to one of the 41 theaters that is showing it in IMAX 70mm)

Topic: Off-topic / You are LOCKED IN a room with 4 EXTREMELY ANNOYING people for an ENTIRE DAY...

I would probably either a) ignore them, or b) collapse into a catatonic state and wake up some time later, after everyone had already left me for dead.

Interestingly enough, you picked four things that I actually have incredibly ambivolent feelings on (I’ve never played any of those games or watched any of the videos, so I don’t have an opinion one way or another), so what kind of people would be trapped in the room with me?

Badge of the Day.

Personally, it varies a lot for me. I remember on one occasion I had all 7. Usually its 4-5, although the past two weeks I’ve had 3. A lot of those come from back when I used to badge hunt (which I haven’t done in a long time).
