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?
