This isn't for the money. Its voulenteer work.
Everything always has money involved in it. Even non-profit organizations. Someone has to get paid.
Purely out of our love to help and the need to! So many people need help and we are here to offer our assistance :D
Not everybody does it for the money some people are just naturally kind like that to be able to offer their knowledge to others!
Thats correct. That dosent mean we PAY for oour questions to be answerd. Btw why did you say we? You aren't part of the staff so you have no say in the matter.
Meh but it's always nice to reward the people who have been helping every once in a while.
That dosent mean you ask for a reward. Its called a good deed
We do it out of the goodness of our righteous hearts, we are pioneers in the tutoring feild helping others learn from their mistakes, then improve on what they have learned it is a very simple method but it really does truly help others!
But what if you got paid for doing this? Wouldn't it be better?
no no it wouldn't because poeple could be greedy and then PURPOSELY give the wrong answer and yet still get payed for their work
We dont get paid. If we were paid for this OS would most likely be bankrupt..
Why would anyone purposely give out the wrong answers? Never take an answer without work being show. Anyways that's why I'm saying that OS should partner up with Chegg
Thats why in the Code of Conduct it says SHOW WORK.
This is free dude!
So someone will show their work and then in the last minute give out the wrong answer?
Just the stupid heads give out the wrong answers
But some people will take advantage of a question just to get a medal, so think about the effect money would have on the situation...
Hey Romero, Thanks for your suggestion. We don't have any plans for implementing a solution like that in the near future. There are so many complications, especially with international users, that if we did it would certainly be a bit of a pain. heh. Besides, one of our big selling points is that we're open! Anyone can benefit from OpenStudy without any concerns about whether or not they can pay for it. That's part of what makes it awesome. :)
Oh geez, mud has a point. Everyone would be scrambling to answer someone's question.
What is wrong with that?
you don't get paid? i get $5 for every right answer.
If there was money involved. What's wrong is that, ppl would give random answers just to get money and medals.
lol satellite XD
@satellite73, is of course, a jokester. :P
but mudd already said that we are suppose to show work.
and $10 for every wrong one
Its funny when ppl like u post questions that have nothing to do with math in the math study group
ya even so a simple show of your correct answer could be decieving, especially for the person asking the question who has no idea what it even means! So they could easily take advantage of the asker...
Ya lol. But you had a lagitament question. So no big deal.
Then we should allow the asker to give "money" to the person who he/she thinks answer the best way.
Power to the asker right!?
ya but that could also be misconstrued as well, what if your friend is asking a question he could just simply give you cash as well if he isn't honest
Lol. "money"... in quotes. I feel like that means that monopoly money would be acceptable.
lol farm that would work perfectly for me!
Want to give it a shot guys? Also there is not benefit in giving money to a friend. You lose the money.
There is not get rich scam that can come out of it.
That would be cool though if we were like payed fake money and OS had a store for i don't know maybe like a avatar or something and then you could buy fancy clothes or whatever. I think that would be quite interesting to test....
Or is there? Next objective, make a get rich scam from OS... anyone?
I could some money lol
This sounds like Romero is trying to get some bitcoin. :P As I've said above, OpenStudy has no immediate plans to do this. And if you ask for payment in a question, we will consider it spamming. :P
it's not just spamming @farmdawgnation it's illegal to solicit money over the internet :p haha
but seriously i think that the monopoly money would be something fun and interesting to try
I really don't care if I get paid or not I was just suggesting. I've been answering questions for a while now for no money so I'm fine with that.
what it's true imagine for a min: Your answering a question then you get a medal and are awarded 50 MONOPOLY DOLLARS not real of course and then you could spend it in the OS store i think that would be cool
Then we can use the money to actually play monopoly online?
i think @Ishaan94 would like to use it for poker =))
no the fake money would be used in a online store here in OS and we could buy i don't know like little names for ourselves ugh cool backgrounds, umm ya know online stuff i just think it would be a cool thing to try
Oh like Call of duty where you can customize your gun.
umm lol ya that is one way to put it would be a fun and entertaining way to change up the tutoring scenario make it lively and fun
What if there was a skype feature in OS?!
That'd be freakin awesome!
If that happens I want to buy an animation where the owl in my picture gets shot at with a gun every time I get a medal.
What the heck?
that would be cool too but ALOT of poeple don t have skype :( but a blackboard session would be pretty cool as well and lol remero not that kinda of medal i mean like decorate your profile and stuff not shoot the owl lol
oooo decorating your profile sounds fun!
I use BlackBoard for school lol
I'm with FLVS
Oh yeah something with skype!! I remember I did sorta like a skype session with @Hero once but it failed completely.
right i mean it is a interesting way to maek tutoring fun, like one of the wallpapers could be of a algebraic expressions, the other could be of ancient mummies in history, the other could be a bunch of viles filled with chemicals, and another could be of different instruments i mean i'm saying it would be very cool if the at LEAST TRIED that idea and see if it worked
We should list all the best ideas on this thread starting with the best: 1. Shooting an owl 2. Skype 3. Customization: wall papers
lol reverse the first two
omit the first one
But the customization would be more than just wallpaper it would be like what your medal looks like and ya know prizes ya know just brainstorming here :D
We should take this to the mods and see what they think about it lol just as an idea
I mean that's a good idea but we can't have going too crazy. Maybe start small with a few customization.
of course ya nothing too large cuz the expectations can't surpass that but most def I think the mods should know about this...
Yeah mud you should post a new question or send the mods a message without any of the owl shooting that I mentioned. I don't think they would like that.
ya lol how should I word it?
Meh it doesn't really matter just write a small paragraph and then make some bullet points with some specific customization and then why OS would benefit from it,
aight will do
Start off saying.... Dear Mods.....
ok supporters say I
Then say....I had a couple of ideas to help improve OS that I'd like to share with you....
That's a good way to start it
aight cool Romero you in?
