“Most pawns choose to become a Queen when promoted. I chose to become a Knight.”

On Jan 20, 2022 the remaining forums and chatrooms on the site went read only. With that, my tenure as moderator on this site has come to a conclusion. I know there are those that poke fun at the mods, thought we were just power trippy fools, or just confused why we would spend so much time working without pay. However, I always valued my role in trying to make the Kongregate community better. I have had a lot of fun on this site, and this was my way to give back. I like to think I had an (admittedly very small) part in Kong’s success while it was at it’s height.

With that, I say my farewells, best wishes, and leave you with a reminder to enjoy the journey (for you do not always know when it might come to an end). Happy gaming all!

And now my watch has ended…

Favorite Kong Moment:
I have been made into a Kongpanion (the 153rd)! During the 2nd Kongregate Live event, Jimp drew a white knight chess piece at my request (my avatar is a white knight). It was pretty cool to see it come alive, and I thank Jimp very much for his time and effort. Pip was then made an official Kongpanion on Dec 12, 2016, and won Kongpanion of the Year 2016.

Another Notable Moment in Kongregate History
April 1, 2014: Kong released KongBot Gameplay Service as an April Fool. Shortly after they did, I put up a screen shot of it taking my kreds during the “free trial day”. With that in mind, here is a post from Candyman the next day:

My personal April Fool’s Day prize goes to TheRealPip, for actually tricking me into thinking we had taken his Kreds. I made it to his Kreds account page, saw nothing, checked to see if I was on one of our testing pages, and THEN finally realized I had been fooled into something that was our own foolery all along. Pip! I salute you!

On top of all this, Candyman awarded me bonus points for the deed:
19 points For fooling Candyman, the fool (4+1+14=19)

Kong is a great place to hang out. And the admins are all made of awesome (especially Candyman, who is also a good sport).

Tyrant Devs Make a Card and Event for me
On Dec 11, 2012, the Tyrant Devs released their Winter Solstice event in my honor. Part of that event was a card that put me in the game… and I guess could later be ‘upgraded’ via an exploit. It was very generous of the devs to do. And I am honored that they would think to do it.

Favorite Kong Thread:
Pwnersaurus Rex recruitment thread. I honestly come back to this once a year to remember all the fun time I had in this War Metal Tyrant faction. I encourage you all to do the same. Lots of good stuff there (I joined and became an officer … and so started posted there… on page 3).

Least favorite Kong moment:
January 20, 2022 approximately 2pm EST.
