Topic: Kongregate / Worst. Tourney. Ever. (Qualifiers)

And since I did relatively well the last time we had a double-elimination tournament, that’s what I’m gonna vote for. [Vote: 2b]

Impromptu is meant to be held at a random time, though, so you can do it whenever you want even if you won’t be here Friday. You don’t have to wait until the next Friday.

It’s always been my opinion that all members of a winning faction should be awarded a win, dead or alive.

Otherwise, you give players even more of an incentive to say as little as possible, lest someone finds them suspicious (*gasp*) and tries to lynch them because of it.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

If you’re looking for support from the popular opinion before making an impossible badge, you might as well just publicly announce that there will never be another imp, because you’re never going to get it.

If you want to make good badges, though, then go ahead and make them, without paying too much attention to what the people think.

People won’t leave Kong just because a few frustratingly difficult badges come out. They might leave Kong, however, if you stop making frustratingly difficult badges because you think the players won’t like them.

Not when the alleged person is doing THIS. Need to stall for modz.

Report him.

As a non-moderator, there isn’t anything you can do or say to make the situation any better. Just ignore him and let those in charge take care of it.

Topic: Kongregate / Petition: Remove TrialPay.

Nothing in life is free. To get something that is “free”, it should be expected that you would have to go through a few hoops.

Impromptu 2 was held tonight with Prec winning with 11 points, MyNameIsNothing 2, turtle and cocoa 1 each.

No pastebin because I derped and switched games without saving it.

Since I’m not currently hosting anything, I don’t need official approvals, but who would be interested in a competition based on real world events? I think it would be mainly sporting events, at least at first. Each week, I would have players choose a real life team/player/participant in a specific event. Players would then be scored on how well their chosen team/player/participant did. I have a lot more details worked out, but for now I just want one or two people to say they’d be interested.

So basically a form of fantasy sports? Sure.

Now if only they could fix GameStop ads appearing in front of the drop down menus….

(And yes, it’s only GameStop ads.)

The most pointless post in FG would be if someone announced that they were finally going to host an FG version of the game show Pointless.

I still think the original rule should be used, because it’s the way that the actual show does it.

Note to self: Hard player limit on Countdown doesn’t work.

The problem with strict inactivity rules is that, if there is no one available to replace them, people simply won’t follow the rules, knowing that you can’t get rid of them without threatening the game entirely due to a lack of players.

Even if replacements are available, they’re almost always a poor solution to the problem, because they generally don’t know what’s going on and are unwilling to read through the game to see what’s been going on. (Also, in mafias especially, the replacement can’t justify the previous player’s actions.)

The only solution to inactivity is to create games that players actually want to play—scaring them off with stricter rules certainly isn’t going to do the trick.

So…is this one of the first threads with more Kong Admin response (and bantering too!) then player response?

Kong Admin Interaction +1

One of the few threads in the last several years, but such threads were much more common in the first year or so of Kong’s existence.
