For How Long?
ive been putting 1000 hours .. about a month and a half
1000/24 try it :)
wow ur serious
im just tired of the blantant abuse of a website that i believe has alot of potential ...
How many have been suspended so far?
lol, hovering over the Parth ;)
swapping answers ????
swapping answers is the anithesis of teaching
yeah,,there is only one! ;)
Parth is a highlander ;)
@shubhamsrg There is another Parth in my class -- that's how common the name is. o.O
But do u think they will go and make a new account?
i'll give you an example..there might be many named sachin,,but ofcorse,,there is only one! ;)
im sure they will make new accounts, but eventually they should get the idea of how to properly use the site
@amistre64 :) you're the knight
why would u do that to people ?????
yeah! seconded,,that irritated me a lot also.. makes me a bigger fan og @amistre64
why would i suspend people for abusing this site? becasue i can :)
this site has a purpose, a vision, and it is not to promote cheating. It is to promote learning.
The biggest issue is in how the interactions are happening; they way the questions are asked and the way people respond to them.
*Swap swap swap swap swap*
If someone swaps an answer for someone swapping an answer, but in reality you are the one who needs to swap the answer, then did you swap in the first place?
short answer .... yes
long answer .... yessiree
if we see someone swapping answers how can we report it to u?
MENTION THE MODS
the report abuse button notifs all the mods
@amistre64 HATS OFF TO YOUR IDEA,,,
ATTENTION! If you area caught swapping THIS WILL HAPPEN TO YOU! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKT75vo0tHw
Wow, Welcome to the post 2012 world.
Note that the title says, “Anyone found swapping answers for Connections Academy assignments (or any other school) will simply be suspended.” And not “OpenStudy drawing competition”. :P
well i dont go there lol but ik there was some in english section
I don't understand why students would prefer answer swapping over getting actual help.
because people here can't explain
but thats the key; if you can explain a concept, then you have learned it. And can teach it
Maybe students just don't understand what is being explained.
because explaining wasn't good enough
I have noticed one thing though. Ever since summer break it seems like more people are in chat talking about everything but school and it takes forever to get answers now :l
OS develope SMART people online... like @amistre64 ;)
I'm pretty sure @amistre64 was smart before OS
@amistre64, what are you doing?
a little house cleaning is all
You have to learn to appreciate the dialog in its original form.
the chat versions have run thier course, but the sentiment remains
HEY I JUST HELPED SOMEONE AND EXPLAINED THE PROBLEM
yay!! did you use any profanity while doing it?
y would i do da?
me a gud boy
I do 1,000,000. Try dat:)
there is a limit to the number of hours we can suspend :) but it is a pretty large number ... prolly a prime number
Or just a 1. With a long slew of 0's
What?!?! Whats the limit?1
I just love the word slew...
ikr it sounds cool!
slew of 0's
farmdawg knows the limit, or matt; is matt still around?
I ain't seen matt in awhile
@amistre64 really appreciate that move!! salutes!!
Matt has been here
@amistre64 WHats the new ban buttons for?
dunno, i havent used it yet; i think it just steals credit card information :)
Nooo..lol. Use it. So funny.
I just did my first suspension of the day!
i now lots of peope from connections academy they say its hard
it may be hard, but it shouldnt be that difficult for the students to simply post the questions that they need help on. Instead they post phishiers to try to get together and swap answers ... cheat.
ya but true but what is some ask for just explinationsnot answers
help is fine by me, which means working thru the problems and learning the material
I am very thankful to you for doing this :)
farmdawg thinks im being a bit harsh :)
ur a smart cookie @amistre64
Well,i do not think so because they have been swapping answers and abusing and showing attitude. You just came right in time to figure this out. So i am thankful to you :)
If @farmdawg things you are being harsh tell him to get an alternative to this :)
lol good one @hba
So wait this is for SWAPPING answers? How does that work? People just giving others in their classes answers? Also what is "Code Academy?" I know about MIT OCW, not too sure about the rest...
from reading some of the Q's I do agree that Ia m tired of answering questions with no thanks, or any care besides the answer. OS has been there for me when I needed it, and I want to give back to it. I have learned so much here and passed courses like Calc 2 because of the help I received from @amistre64 and others.
@KonradZuse Code academy is just like MIT OCW but there are codes there and you can learn Coding there for free :)
Ic I think I may have heard of it then, I do see people posting in sequence about classes, but I thought that was also MIt, just them actually giving out course credit... I would assume Code Academy does the same or Similar?
Well i am not sure but you can go to codeacademy.com and check it is free and i used it . Not sure on course credit.I do not think they give credit.
Must be just MIT OCW. I believe Farmdawg made a post awhile ago kind of like this about it, because people were giving answers to the hw's, which 1. Others wanted to attempt it, 2. Course credit was given. He said not to give answers until the week or time frame was up..
Hmm i see :/
Shaking my head at all you cheaters !
oooo boy this thing agin
im gonna cheat and see what he does
Hmm... u mean assignments answers shouldn't b given by anyone ??
Two key words here: Connections Academy
answers should be given as general as possible and built upon thru the interaction so that the asker develops and understanding of the material and not just a free answer
and yes, the connections academy posts seem to be the most abundant ones for this
To me, it seems like almost every connections academy student wants to swap answers.
lol, so trevor is trying to "report abuse" this eh. Good luck with that ;)
No, everyone just wants answers...
INCLUDING ME, SO GIVE ME ALL THE ANSWERS BUWAHHAHAH
Alot of people probably have the intention of just getting an answer; but there are those who are willing to jump thru the hoops to get one.
Like today for example, someone comes into comp sci asking for HTML help. Thius one dude helped him out and the OP goes "can you write the html code for me." I told him we aren't a code mill.
I dont even write the HTML codes for my own kids :)
Honestly we should do a statstic of how many students pass/fail with the addition of Open Study, and compare who tries to learn, vs not learning :)
@amistre64 I love your kiddish sense of humor. I want to have a brain like yours!
damn, y didnt yall post this sunday? ma friend got suspended for helping someone sunday he wasnt even giving answers away, he was just saying if it was correct or wrong like letting the person figure it out, he got suspended for 2 weeks lmao i think its funny tho cause i told him the mods didnt like him
This was posted..a long time ago...@joyflow
lol well yall should of made it mandatory for everyone to see it
Everyone saw it.. and their mothers... 20 times...
lmo yu got jokes
Not really. I've been informed about 20 times of this thread, as well as seeing it 5 times... I mostly spend my time in computer science also.....
Oh also @amistre64 are we allowed to help them? I don't want to be banned for helping a student out.... I kind of notice what the code academy stuff looks like(everyone asks us to do the SAME questions all the time...)
I find the same questionsfrom school here all the time :O
HEY HEY HEY WOULD THIS BE CONSIDERED A "MEDAL PARTY" AND IF SO WE HAVE TO BAN ALL OF U! LOL jkjk
more of a public announcement ;)
Lol i understand Mrs. I'm just messin lol @amistre64
and since the chatbox cut off my Preetha paste: From @Preetha Ram: I noticed a lot of troubling activity around Connections Academy in particular. According to their rep, posting exam and test questions violates their copyright. In addition, all of these postings he says, are a violation of Connections Education’s Honor Code." All of our students sign the Honor Code, which states that they will · never give or receive unauthorized assistance on assessments. I understand that all assessments are “closed-book” and that my Learning Coach shall not provide assistance in determining answers on assessments · never post exam or quiz answers on the Internet or in other public places, nor use answers from posted exams or quizzes." Any suggestions on how we can deal with this?
Im not sure about the other subjects; but changing the numbers might be a work around for the math stuff
I have a good suggestion, but it'd apparently take a while to program it :-|.
does it involve putting a virus on the internet? cuase im pretty sure that cant be done
@amistre64 Hehe no :-)
@amistre64 I so much agree with you! This site is great for people who are just wanting help! I know when I ask answers I don't just want the answers I want actual help so that I understand it.
I AGREE STRONGLY WITH @BrittanyFrench
and that is really the best way to use this site; all else is just abuse
@amistre64 I think what your doing with that situation is great! People gotta understand they will never learn anything if they just ask for the questions then when they move onto college or something they won't ever know how to answer questions the way they need to
I dont think theres a way to tell if the questions are from connection academies
Meant ask for the answers lol
@Umar97 alot of the students from there will say their from connections and only connections can answer it
The most obvious way to tell is when they post: Is anyone from connections academy and can give me answers to my test?
ive seen alot of anyone from connections but not a can u give me a answer.
anyone asking for people going to "connections academy" are simply phishing to find people to give them the answers.
LOL who'd be that dumb. when i ask a question i want the personm to explain it to me.
im sure i could slip over to biology and pull out about 5 right off the bat :)
@amistre64 I HAVE AN IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lol this was posted almost a month ago and still people are commenting on it
its a huge issue @mikala1
@Umar97 alot of people do, but some people do want people to explain but alot of people just want things to get done so they just ask for the answers b/c they wait the day before it'ds due to even start on it
@amistre64 wanna hear my idea?
whats your idea :)
that's halirious! I don't understand people sometimes
IP BAN THE PERSON FOR 1000 HRS SO THEY WILL SUFFER THE FULL CONSEQUENSES AND SO THEY CANT JUST MAKE A NEW ACC AND LOG RIGHT BACK ON AND DO IT AGAIN
whoops corry bout caps
the 1000 hours i like, but its just a symbolic gesture since creating a new account is as rather simple to do .. dont even need a real email addy. The IP ban would hurt all people who use the same IP, and not just the account that is being abusive
tru da.... i forgot some ppl have same IP... sorry :'(
Can't you like get ahold of the school and give names on who's cheating?
can i? no, im just a moderator with a shiny red button and a purple glow
lol. Very true! it was an idea lol
if they want the answers straight away why go here... there's google for that
i gotta write up an income statement, balance sheet, and a retained earnings for +5 extra credit for accounting, so ill be hovering :)
idk wat that stuff is.... sounds fun and complicated buh bye :P
@Umar97 alot of kids want help from people who have taken the class already then taking a chance with google giving wrong answers
i need u.... for sumthin.
Ohh that makes sense. Btw are you in a connection academy?
me or her?^^
If you're asking me no i'm not lol.. I do ECOT
what you need me for ... mind reading class was the only thing i got a B in :)
@amistre64 go to bio and change subject
yeah i was asking her. ohh what s ecot?
I messaged you what it was
i know someone that got banned for two weeks.
@amistre64 again plz
@texaschic101 me 2
Yeah it's a serious issue
But I don't understand how your supposed to answer direct questions such as " who was the first president of the United States ?" How do you explain that without giving the answer. I know you can say just google it, but you can do that with any question asked on this site, because every question asked can be found here on the internet. People just don't want to look.
I have a new post on OS Feedback. Check it out please. :-)
I guess simply posting the link to this wasn't a good idea.
HI I JUST READ EVERYTHING THANKS FOR THE GOOOD READ THIS MOKRNING
this thing is still going on ...evry half an hour i see someone posting ..anyone in connection academy ?need help ...
yeah, its a bit rampant at times, but i figure this to be a good way to get the "warning" across and then they post at their own peril :)
yep u are right! ..keep bumping this question periodically
next bump in 634 minutes lol
at least i think thats in minutes
u should have special priviledges where u can bump it whenever. :P @amistre64
i should, but they just dont want to give me soo much power that it goes to my cankles :)
bahahahah they should give me some of ur power :P lol jkjk @amistre64
