Yeah, I've seen that happening a bit too and it ticks me off. Warn away if you see it happening. I'd say they get one official warning and then watch the account page for a bit. If you see it happen after that warning suspend 'em. I don't know if we'll drop the functionality, but not giving it to users until they reach a certain smart score might be prudent.
I have noticed that too... It annoys me. It makes me think that they aren't supposed to get help and that therefor, I am helping them cheat.
Yeah same haha but I don't think we should delete it cuz i was getting an opinion on an english thing before and i totally messed up when i was typing (like ya know the automatic spell checker thing) so i saw it and fixed it right away!! so i think its pretty handy :) so idk i think it should stay there :) ya know so we can fix typos when we type! :) just my opinion tho.. :P
I agree with iheartfood. After I post a question, I always manage to come up with better ways to frame and word it. And for that, I'm actually pretty happy that we have the option of going back and editing. I mean I CAN see other people editing their questions, in order to cover their tracks. It's their loss. If they're the kind of people who aren't interested in learning, and expect for life to be handed to them, I think they'll pay for it later. One way or another.
im not convinced that editing a question becasue it contains a typo is a valid reason. Any confusion in the question itself can be addressed and clarified within the thread itself. The prettification of a question is just lipstick on a pig :)
I don't really use the edit thing, Unless I need to add something I left out that's important like The diagram is not drawn to scale. or I missed type y instead of x.
agreed @InYourHead :) @amistre64 that's true :) but personally i think the edit button is useful... my opinion tho haha tho i do understand why u would want it gone :) @FirstFrostByte yeah i usually add that on the post itself (like inside) but it comes in handy when i made like a HUGE typo.. like if i messed it up completely cuz my comp automatically corrects words so sometimes if i'm trying to say "This site is awesome." it might turn into something weird like "This dire is aquas." idk that never happened to me lol but thats like an example haha :P sorry its a bad example tho, but you get what i mean! haha :P
I too have seen the edit option used to delete content and think it should go. Any additional clarification the question requires (like a spelling/grammar mistake or neglecting to post all necessary info) can be fixed by posting it in the question thread. If the question is unfixable, it can always be closed and reposted with the correct/complete info.
Well that's kind of dumb. They can wipe out the questions, but not the answers that were already given. Wouldn't any person with a brain who came along be able to tell right away that there was a question there? And that this person obviously asked for help? What kind of fail attempt is this, to hide the fact that they asked for help?
hahah yeah good point =P
@InYourHead if you really want to know why, I'll tell you. true, people know that there was a question there. But do they know what that question is? What they're doing is not hiding the fact that they asked a question. What they're doing is hiding the fact that they asked a *specific* question. That makes the difference. Imagine you have a jar of cookies and you have a little brother. One day, you noticed the jar of cookies became empty. Is that enough evidence to accuse your brother of eating all the cookies?
If he didn't leave any trace of evidence behind, then no, of course there wouldn't be enough evidence.
exactly. that's why those users cannot get expelled because the school does not have any evidences that that user asked questions that they should answer on their own
the thread of those answers are not enough to prove what the question originally contained
Has a school ever executed something as drastic as expulsion, without sufficient evidence? I'm really curious. And I really think they ought not to expel a student without solid, irrefutable evidence. But something in my mind tells me that it's not unheard of.
Still, I understand your point. Not enough evidence, less likely to result in expulsion.
Believe me, I've tried. One of the students of my school asked a question here and edited that question. So, we couldn't touch the student. We tried coordinating with the OpenStudy administrators though
Are you a school administrator? A teacher?
i own a small school of programming
it's for the poor though
another reason why the student wasn't expelled
Computer programming? Oh that's pretty neat. You're obviously not the only one who wants the Edit option taken away. And as for me, honest to god, I couldn't care less if it were taken away. I'd just spend a little extra time scrutinizing my questions before posting them.
i didn't say I wanted it gone. I don't think I even took a side
You aren't frustrated, like the others? You wouldn't have wanted to be able to justifiably have that student, that you'd mentioned, expelled?
Like I said, the school is for the poor. I have no reason to want them to get expelled. That would be harsh. I was just stating an example and no, i'm not frustrated. That button has its good times and bad. Unfortunately, programming is not sophisticated enough to outsmart humans. Users will always find a way to find holes in the defense systems of the programs. I firmly believe in actions like suspensions
I'm sorry. I missed the part where you told me it was for the poor. Why did you try coordinating with the administrators?
i wanted to see what he asked
administrators have copies of the original questions
Oh I understamd.
oh wow that's interesting! and @lgbasallote, thats such a nice thing for you to do!! its great contributions to the world (like opening a school for the poor!! i think i understood that right, didn't i?) that make the world go round!! haha :P but yeah it has its good and bad times... but frankly I'm fine with either... though it comes in handy sometimes!! :)
