Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mathslover I just made a post last night requesting we get a mod or two for the "dead times". Probably an Easterner as most trolls are from 25am EST, however I think for normal daytoday maybe making someone who is on at least somewhat regularly during the day would be a good idea, as they could help keep an eye on things. @across more people could help. I don't think we need a ton of mods but maybe just a couple more could help.

But i hope that they will soon look out on this and get a soln ... @Hashir i agree that old users helped students .. Sorry but i should have mentioned that there are only 2  3 ...

mathslover

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pratu as i mentioned that : i know that reporting is a solution of that but what about that particular time when the off topic comments were posted .. and this will surely make the os image bad in the vision of the new users

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. @Hashir but that's part of being a mod. I don't think it's possible to just make a "chat mod". But yeah, either way we definitely need a few more people watching chat a little more. Or maybe coming when someone is reported. I mean I don't mean these things in a whiny way whatsoever but you can't report them but so much before it's just frustrating that users can come on and completely disregard CoC and think it's a game for hours on end.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Kids troll all the time. Even if we grant everyone banning privileges, there will be more than one window of opportunity for these brats to have fun at will; people have lives to lead and will, sooner or later, not have as much time as they used to. I fell victim for this: I used to frequent this site on a daily basis. Now I can't afford to do that anymore. I'd suggest we give an honest look to the problem and ask ourselves: how desperate are we in need of a solution? Tell me, is it imperative that we ban trolls on sight? This is why I believe that the ability to report posts is good enough, as @pratu043 already mentioned.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Lol. Reporting still does nothing. 1) There are not a lot of active senior members who use the report feature at the dead days. 2) Mods are off, so we'd have to wait till the morning(US time).

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Both are interrelated, @lgbasallote. The root cause to the problem is the offline mods.

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well in my opinion..there's nothing that can be done to trolls. i mean you cant stop it. it's part of a social networking site

rebeccaskell94

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I honestly think that @across was right. There is only so much we can do. Mods can and *do* do their jobs. I think reporting is sufficient for the time being, maybe adding an extra mod for dead times, but even then they won't be on all day/night (timezone) But they have lives that are not centered around a bunch of high school and middle schoolers. I think we should give them a little more credit.

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The restrictions to become a moderator should be lessened as we have many deserving people who do not become mods. lgba is an example.

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@rebeccaskell94 : basically there are trolls in maths chat ... i agree that there may be some laughters there in maths .. as maths is just everything breaking subject but trolling continously and going high level off topic is not a good thing

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So much troll hatred. I'm hurt. My actual feeling on this is that the current situation is pretty much fine. More mods wouldn't hurt, but we don't need a lot more. Here's why 1) Most trolling is harmless. The solution isn't to shut it down, but to laugh at it or ignore it. 2) The trolling that IS harmful will occasionally happen, and there's nothing you can do to prevent it. All you can do is take it down when you see it and then discourage that user from repeating. 3) That's what the mods are doing already. It's not going to happen as quickly as you might like, but realistically, it never will. As Across pointed out, having constant moderation of the chat is just not a viable option. Tl;dnr: Lower your sensitivity to trolling and your expectations for mod response time.

rebeccaskell94

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We keep our mouths shut, and report them. Yes, but it's our option atm. Most of us are high schoolers and honestly, I think we need to be a little more mature. As fun as countertrolling is at times, most of the time it's just people being vindictive and rude.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So a lot of good points have been brought up here, and I hope to address them all. I think the best way to start is by explaining our position  we absolutely believe that OpenStudy is a community that functions best when it governs itself. This is why we have 'Report Abuse' buttons next to literally *every* interaction on site. This is why it is so important for users to use that function in order to allow us to do our jobs. For example, last night between 1 and 5AM there were actually very few abuse reports made. This feeds into @SmoothMath's point  honestly the best thing to do in situations involving overly aggressive/annoying users is to hit the Report Abuse and walk away. When you engage you actually make it worse. With all that being said, we are still working on introducing new moderators, especially for that late night time. As for everyone else, we ask that you help us out by reporting issues as they arise, and trying not to feed into them when they occur. Because, I can absolutely guarantee you they will always occur unfortunately ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I've noticed the problem happens mostly when the mods aren't online (during their night time in the Americas), so appointing global moderators in different timezones of the world might help in better 'lawenforcement'. Appointing Callisto was a very good step in this direction I believe.
