Topic: Technical Support / [CASE CLOSED NOW] Bloons Tower Defense something's wrong with the game and a badge

I know what you mean, and I waited, the game ended and everything was done when the little check box thing got the check mark for getting the badge, and it looked like it did like when you get any badge. But when I came back the next day, almost a full day later, the badge at the page with the actual game to play was back to how it was before getting it. When I checked my earned badges, it showed that badge as my most recently earned badge, so I knew I did have it, it just wasn’t showing up as it would at the actual page to play the game. BUT, a day or so after that, whether by a Kongregate crewman or the badge just finally kicking in as SHOWN as earned, it was fixed up. This must have just been a freak thing, and now it’s resolved, so case closed. :D

Topic: Technical Support / [CASE CLOSED NOW] Bloons Tower Defense something's wrong with the game and a badge

There is a problem with the Medium badge; I even remember seeing the badge picture color up and the little check box fill in with a check mark when I beat the required level. When I refreshed the page, it came up and it returned to how it looks before you get the badge. Here is a link to a visual of it. The top screenshot is that when I go to the section to see the badges I’ve earned, it shows there that I did indeed get it. The counter meter doesn’t fill in anymore either when I beat any of the stages again on Easy difficulty. http://i.imgur.com/8dL8jd5.png The other problem is that when I go to play the game and get to the main menu, it puts me back at rank 1 and the game is at the starting point as far as no towers earned by raising rank or anything else, like I never made any progress. Sometimes it happens when I first play it upon coming to Kongregate, most of the time it happens when I play it, refresh the page and then play it again and it will be on rank 1 and stuff. Then I refresh the page again and it’s back to normal again. I almost went out to try and find someone to murder when I first saw that happen thinking I had lost all that progress even though I didn’t clear any cache or anything and my computer isn’t set in any way to delete upon exit or anything. XD The second and third screenshots of the image show the rank change; you’ll notice I have the exact same amount of in-game cash. I could spend and then get more cash, but getting the same amount again is very hard to do in this game with that currency. If any of the Kongregate crew reads this, could you find a way to have it register that I got the badge for on the game page? I guess it’s not a big deal, I know I got it and the site registers that too. But, ya know…

Topic: Kongregate / December '14 Suggestion Thread

You know how you can click and hold a site name in the “favorites” part of the menu bar in a browser and rearrange them in exact order one by one? That would be so great if you an put every game I your playlist and favorites exactly like that. I know there is the general filter/sort thing, but it would the best if you could also have it in the order you want one by one. If that’s not possible (which I think is, it can’t be that hard to make a program for that), then at least add the sort/filter options of arranging it by “type of tag” and by “alphabetical order”. But the manual one by one thing would be nice.

Topic: Technical Support / Is there a way to organize my Playlist and Favorites more exactly?

Just as the title says; I know there is a general sort/filter thing, but specifically, I’d like to be able to order them how I’d want like you can do for favorite websites from “favorites” part of the menu bar in a browser. Like I could click and hold and drag to whatever ranking position I’d want; and when I am on the first page, the first 17 games I chose individually would be the first ones. Is there a way to do this specific kind of organizing?

Topic: Technical Support / One and One Story level 5-2 lag

I did a google search and tried about a dozen other sites. They all have the same problem EXCEPT miniclip.com, which is normal. I wonder what would cause it in the first place and why that one site would be the only one that works properly?

Topic: Technical Support / One and One Story level 5-2 lag

Is anyone else having a problem with a lag in the game One and One Story where they fall kind of slow at some stages? At level 5-2 where she is walking by herself and you push the block before she gets there then she pushes it off the side, then she’s supposed to go off the same edge and land on the block just making the corner. I played it again and now she (and he) falls too slow. She’s supposed to be falling faster, but she goes too slow to make the block and ends up dying because she fell from too far. It’s not my mistake, it’s her automatic actions that are messing up because of a lag in the falling rate. Does anyone have any idea what the heck is up and how it can be fixed?

Topic: Kongregate / A new way of managing comments?

I guess the only thing that is any sort of issue to me is finding mine when there are like 10 – 20 pages before it. I know the link to see all of only your own comments and what games and dates they were posted, and you can delete it if you want; clicking on the game’s name will of course bring you to the game. If I could really put one thing more, it would be to have a way to jump right to the one you posted so you can get to yours without having to click “next page” in the comments section what feels like a million times. I mentioned comments getting deleted because there are sometimes 10 – 20 pages worth of 2 or less rated comments and 98% of them get about 0, 1 maybe 2 points improvement over 1 or 2 years. I guess being deleted is a bit steep, but it would be cool to have that “jump to mine” click. Actually, that would be the one perfect addition that I think I was trying to embody with my whole first post.

Topic: Kongregate / A new way of managing comments?

I have had other random people I chat with agree that it can be an irritation to find your comment when there are 30 – 50 pages. Some also wonder “is that much necessary?” Who’s going to want to sit and look through 40 pages of comments anyway, ya know? I would see that a good idea if they were all high rated enough but we’re talking about like 1,000 – 4,000 comments on many games; also, many are around 1 – 2 or more years old. This just a suggestion to reduce the amount of pages of comments and keep the ones people found interesting of helpful. A comment is deleted by Kongregate staff if: 1- its rating isn’t at least 4 by its posted date 4 months later; I think 4 months is enough to determine if anyone gives a rip about a comment~~~ 2- its rating isn’t at least 6 by its posted date 8 months later~~~ 3- its rating isn’t at least 8 by its posted date 1 year later. Any comment with a rating 8 or higher gets to stay indefinitely. Lastly, instead of an “underrated threshold” of -3 being hidden, when it reaches -7 it will be flagged for deletion. What do you think? Might it be worth trying? Maybe with some tweaks to it?
