HistoryEdit

The Van is one of the oldest (first generation) chat rooms on Kongregate. damijin created the room in December 2006, naming it after his previous channel "Damijin's Van."

Through 2007, The Van was very popular and home to many moderators. When Ducklette became a moderator in June 2008, many regulars left The Van to her new room, Feed the Ducks. The Van was rendered mostly modless.

solprovider took over the Van in June 2009. In December 2009, the room became ownerless. The Van came under the ownership of frankiesmum in January 2010. In May 2010 ownership was given to UltimateChaos, and still exists as a mature and fun room with plenty of active regulars. Woohoo!

CultureEdit

We have Vannites from all across the globe! The majority of the regulars hail from Australia, North America, and Europe.

Rhyme GameEdit

  1. Someone throws out a word that can be rhymed, like "roar".
  2. Players then throw out words that rhyme with the first word (e.g., door, core, boar, soar) without repeats. Only the final syllable matters, so "decor" would also work.
  3. The game is over when no one can come up with unused rhymes.
  4. Life moves on.

FAQEdit

Wait, what are "Van Challenges"?

Van Challenges are special challenges for regulars of the Van. They will typically consist of earning an obscure badge on Kong or achieving some feat or high score in a game created or worked on by Van regulars.


How long do we have to finish each challenge?

These challenges typically (but not always!) run a week long each time. Everyone is encouraged to participate.


What do I get if I win?

You will feel like an awesome accomplished Vannite! In addition to that, the first seven winners of each challenge will get a mention on the wiki page. Exciting stuff!


Who is playing?

Van regulars who will most likely be in the chat room are the only ones competing.


I'm not a Van regular, can I still win?

While the winners I'm posting will only be the first seven Van regulars, we'll usually allow you to become a regular if you've completed the challenge and want to be one. If not, you can still participate, chat, and have fun!


l don't want to be a regular, but can I still be listed as a winner?

Sorry, no.


So you're going to be selecting badges from new games like Kong already has? Or will there be challenges for non-badged games?

Generally, the challenges that will be selected are from badges/achievements that most people haven't earned. Usually, they will be pulled from older more difficult badges on kong, but we could mix it up. Also, games that Vannites have developed may also be selected.


I won! What do I do now?

After you earn the badge, leave a whisper with UltimateChaos (me) on my profile telling me you've earned the badge. If you've won, you'll be listed on the wiki!


I already have the badge, can I still participate?

Of course! Although this competition is geared towards those who have not earned the achievement or feat so far, you are still welcome to join in if you've already done so. However, having the badge doesn't mean you win automatically. You'll have to replay the challenge and take a screenshot of your victory. You can then upload it via Photobucket or other uploading sites. Leave a whisper on my profile with a link to the screenshot (Please include your computer's time display (date is even better) if you can.


I hate you.

I love you!
