Topic: Technical Support / KONGREGATE VIRUS (Experiment on 3/19 - Anyone see the virus?)

By the way, one of the malicious redirects goes to a page at 91.212.127.3, if that is any help.

Topic: Technical Support / KONGREGATE VIRUS (Experiment on 3/19 - Anyone see the virus?)

I believe the virus complaints may be valid. I have the same issue. It is random, but ONLY happens on Kongregate’s site. I deal a lot with malware in my company and have none on my computer (I’m using avast and other programs and they catch it in advance). The behavior is typical of a drive by.

Although it only happens when visiting Kongregate, it does NOT happen consistently. It isn’t a particular game or page. After having it happen quite a few times over the last couple of weeks, I believe it may be AD related, but I haven’t been able to narrow it down to the ad because it immediately redirects to a malicious site. The pattern is the same. The page on Kongregate begins to load and then as the ads start loading, the page immediately redirects.

You may want to check the ads and begin to look for patterns in the logs. I have found no discernable pattern yet other than it always been a delayed load on a Kongregate web page.

Topic: Kongregate / Why Chat constantly defaults?

@slasherx, you make very valid points. Unfortunately, I’m an old geezer who doesn’t have much time to play games. Equally unfortunately (if that’s a grammatically correct phrase), I really enjoy playing games. So I only get small windows to try out some of the new games that come out on K. Hence, no time to chat or read it. But it gets distracting with everything scrolling and always having to switch away from it. Just the way my eyes work I guess…

MAN, you guys are fast! :)

@Matt, yes. I haven’t played for a week (on vacation). Got back home and the interface defaults back to Chat everytime I pick a new game. It previously only did that each browser session.

Thx again…

Topic: Kongregate / Why Chat constantly defaults?

Actually, I believe the entire tabbed interface there is related – you aren’t just connecting to “chat” per se? Regardless, (1) just as they display different tabs when needed, I can’t understand why the chat tab can’t be hidden on a per user basis, and (2) having nothing to do with #1, which I can deal with, I just want to get back my ability to maintain my last tab selection…

but, thanks for replying… it is appreciated…

Topic: Kongregate / Why Chat constantly defaults?

I don’t use Chat. In the previous version of K, I could Mute it (which was frustrating to have to do each time I came to the site since there was no default profile option, but I lived with it). With the new version of K, I couldn’t mute it anymore, but I can go to a different tab, and that tab selection would stick throughout that browser session (for each game I picked). NOW, I can’t even do THAT! Frustration abounds!

Although I still can’t understand why 2 years later there is no way for me to completely disable all chat (since I NEVER USE IT) in my profile, PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GAMING, at lease restore my ability to keep my selected tab!

Maybe I’m missing a new setting somewhere?

Topic: Technical Support / Inappropriate Ad

Is there anyway to flag inappropriate ads? The “Rock of Love Bus” ad is entirely inappropriate for a site like this.

Thanks!

Topic: Technical Support / Kongregate Beta = HEADACHE + NOPLAYING^2

No problem Emily! Worth waiting for. Don’t pull all your hair out (as you mentioned elsewhere) – we won’t be able to tell you and Jim apart :)

(As if I actually knew what either one of you looked like…)

You have any idea how many sites use that excuse! Oh wait, that’s why you said that with a smile :)

Thanks again arcane

Topic: Technical Support / Search broken?

Thanks for pointing me here arcane. What I don’t understand is why, if this problem has existed this long, is the search available? Although it might provide some results depending on the search, it seems like the confusion caused would far outweigh any benefits at this time.

Seems like the more approriate thing would be to just remove the search bar, or at least put a notice under it ??

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

Sorry, there are so many posts, this might be redundant, but I would like to reiterate what the original poster suggested: that it would be nice to have a list (with links) of our recently played games in our profiles. I only favorite the games I am genuinely interested in playing again. But sometimes I want to recommend a game to someone or just peruse what I’ve played.

Thanks for any consideration!

Topic: Technical Support / Search Doesn't Work

The Kongregate Search doesn’t seem to work at all for game names and summaries. Every game I’ve ever searched for has NEVER come up in the results. At first I thought it was just me as I don’t use Search that much, but I did more extensive testing today.

The last 2 searches I tried were for Hangman Extreme! and Micro Olympics. I looked at the text on both pages for those games, once I finally did find them manually, and tried various search combinations, including using asterisks, quotes, full name, partial name, etc. Could never get the games to come up in the results. Even tried matching the capitalization to make sure that wasn’t it.

Thanks.
