SWAG

I honestly feel that the Music group needs to be deleted or moderated more because there is a very large amount of disrespectful people and numerous amounts of conversations in there that are not appropriate for OpenStudy and that violate the CoC. I have been in and out of that group the past few weeks and there is nothing but pointless and inappropriate nonsense. To back up what im saying i have screenshots of the chat.

    I have seen what you have described to, I do not have pictuers but as myself I have had some rude people and some inappropriate things being said. Honestly I think if we had some more modorators in the room or the chat things wouldnt be as hectic. @SAWG is right.

    You know.. I watch music chat A LOT, and I try to keep it, you know, civil, but no one ever listens to me. -.- If I was a mod, that would help a lot. Plus, I'm on all freaking day, and there is a time when there are NO mods online, and the chats go insane. Soo yeah... I don't think it should be deleted, though.

    By all means, report them. I haven't been able to participate in moderation much over the last few weeks, but the other moderators have been around. I've given people in Music warnings about posting off-topic stuff in the questions area. If the other mods feel like it's becoming a systemic issue (the entire group is the problem), they can let us know. However, since lately they've been on the site more than me I can't make that call. @shadowfiend may have a few thoughts along those lines though.

    Yes this is a bit of an issue. However, recently we have been keeping a closer eye on the music group and I always keep an eye on the music chat (when I'm online). Perhaps the issue is when its day time on the other side of the world (America)? Right now (well, yesterday, I haven't checked this morning yet) the main questions in music chat were actually serious music questions and a few people 'showing off' their work. While admittedly there is alot of junk that ends up in the music group I still think there is a chance that we can reel it in. As always please don't hesitate to report something that violates the code of conduct.

    Time and time again i have submitted reports on numerous amounts of users. It's not so much the group than it is the users. I used to enjoy being in music but not now it is full of ignorant rude people that really seem to enjoy pushing peoples buttons including my own. On top of breaking MANY CoC Rules.

    No.. There's no point in deleting it. The admins already made it an official group. If you delete music, those people are just gonna go raid another group and make it brainless and useless. There are academic questions in music group, even if there aren't as much as there should be.That's not the point. If you don't like what's going on in the music group, then don't be in it. Just leave the group, or zen mode the chat or whatever. But, deleting it won't solve anything.

    It can solve allot by deleting it, but if they wont delete it than something needs to be done, because some people want to be in there but cant because there are many rude ignorant people in there. and allot of their conversations are very offensive. Along with them being very rude to new users. They violate MANY CoC Rules and nothing is being done about it. I understand why you wouldn't defend music @Agent_Sniffles seeing as how you have been in there for quite a while BUT it does not change the fact that many users have had to leave the group because of these people. Everyday i log on and go in chat i see people cursing each other out, talking about how their in a relationship, stupid fights, gay bashing, sharing accounts and much much more. This group needs to be highly moderated and we need more mods to watch the group because nothing is being done about it. OpenStudy is a place for learning and helping one another. Not causing trouble and relationships.

    I'm not defending it because I've been there for awhile, I'm defending it because it can actually be academic at times. I think it should be moderated for a month or two, see how that goes, and if that doesn't do anything, then it should be deleted. I think everyone in music chat is in a relationship with someone else in there...soo yeah. :P That's kinda weird, but whatever. But, as for the other stuff, yeah I've seen that A LOT, and I always try to take care of it, but they'd rather listen to a mod. So I think a group mod for a couple months would be the first step in making music group..well..better.

    If the music chat is deleted, what is stopping them from infiltrating another group? I doubt they'll be like "Oh, darn. Our usual chat has been deleted. We can't chat anymore even though there's countless other groups we could chat in." What needs to be done is it being more heavily moderated. That's really the only solution. They need discipline.

    Yeah, we get annoyed. Which is the only reason I'm here. To tell you not to tag us to get our attention. I saw this post a while ago. I have little to add to what TranceNova and farmdawgnation said, which is why I haven't replied. In particular, please report misbehavior. And understand that what you consider misbehavior may not be considered misbehavior under the Code of Conduct. Again, please don't tag us in a question just to nag at us. We've already got plenty on our plate moderating and developing, and we take the time we have when we have it to reply to questions that we can. Thanks!

    I don't think deleting is the answer, because if you have a problem with a certain subject's content, just don't look at it! As to having it more strictly modified, I don't think that the openstudy moderators being more strict would help very much. I think if users have a problem with someone posting inappropriate or unrelated comments, they should comment how they feel to the inappropriate user. I think this is much more beneficial and creates a better community.

    Honestly, you say that we're the bad as if we're the only bad if you want to delete a group for its misuse then I advice ALSO deleting the mathematics chat. You probably don't realize this; or you but the Mathematics is always getting out of hand, talking about off topic things, inappropriate things. Just a few days ago they where talking about Abortion? And talking about how mothers are murdering their child? There where at least 5 people involved in this but you know, its the music group can't close that down? Its racism in my opinion most of everyone who post in the Music section is African american, Mexican, minorities in general. I think you guys just aren't doing your job if you actually made an attempt to moderate and I don't know as you say "get stuff in order" when nothing is wrong. Point is there are equally if not more disturbing/inappropriate chats, sections, groups whatever you want to call it. DON'T DELETE MUSIC CHAT.

    Its sad really that you would go so far as to delete them. And if you didn't expect the music group users to vote against this then you're crazy @SWAG its simply to fight for something we want to stay as is. You lack mods in almost ever group but don't come to realization that MAYBE they could be equally as bad. Not saying that the music group is bad because its actually doing good if you look into it right now you'll see nothing is being posted other then music related things. If you're talking about the chat then sure maybe it is a little out of hand but so are these other groups.

    Lol... It's not racist. I mean, seriously? Where would you even get that? Maths chat does get out of hand sometimes, but music chat has to be the worst. Maths only talks about that stuff when one person brings it up, then everyone gets into it. And it usually fades off and the conversation is over. But, music chat, they'll be talking about rape and bashing gays and whatever...That doesn't stop til someone tells them it's not appropriate. And as for nothing but music related things being posted..That's a first. But, there will still be stuff in the closed section.

    Whoa whoa. All right folks, we have no immediate plans to delete the music chat. Let's not start accusing people of racism. There are problematic conversations in every chat, as there are in life, and we try to rein them in when possible. As usual, continue to report abuse when you see problems. And keep in mind that chat is particularly fast-moving, so despite our best efforts we won't always be able to react in time (which doesn't mean we aren't issuing warnings in the background).
