## poopsiedoodle 2 years ago please give ambassadors a 5 minute suspend ability. please. so much spam =_=

1. poopsiedoodle

2. SWAG

Seriously because this is crazy and has been happening for days. I have like several screenshots of these from several users and way worst. I realize Mods have lives and they do the best they can but this is honestly ridiculous. There are times someone is talking to me or asking for help and this happens and I cant find the chat or person I was speaking with. Please give us 5 minute suspension capability?

3. SWAG

I also know many of you admin do what is best for the community and you work very hard and you have seen several post like this before and you guys alwaysss say the same thing but honestly come on, this has been happening WAY TO LONG. I have over 30 screenshots of DIFFERENT Spammers and inappropriate users on my laptop alone of just 1 week of being on here. At least consider this.

4. SWAG

@Preetha

5. poopsiedoodle

SWAG explained better than I could.

6. Opcode

No. That's a horrible idea. Ambassador welcome people, that's that. I propose a system were there is a limit on how many post/chats you can send at once. And if you continue to break this limit you get muted. Muted as in no chatting. For how long? Maybe a day? It's a much better system, if ambassador had a power to mute it would just lead to fights and such.

7. SWAG

I disagree.

8. SWAG

Something just needs to be done already. It is getting out of hand, so out of hand that i have people coming to me threatening me and being racist to me and I keep my calm but it is hurtful sometimes. So having these abilities would be helpful. This is a reason I want to be a Mod.

9. Carniel

I agree with Opcode... Ambassadors are just suppose to help new users and greet them not suspened ppl e.e

10. poopsiedoodle

Well, when the mods are inactive for long periods of time, it's kinda annoying to just hope that the people get a community ban, and then that doesn't even happen.

11. poopsiedoodle

Of course, just to clear things up, I know that mods have lives outside of OS. I'm not complaining that they're not doing their jobs.

12. SWAG

My Point^

“so out of hand that i have people coming to me threatening me and being racist to me and I keep my calm but it is hurtful sometimes” Please report these messages.

14. poopsiedoodle

Opcode, the majority of us are responsible enough to not suspend for no reason. I don't think I know any ambies who would be dumb enough to susp without a reason.

15. Opcode

Still I don't think it's right to give Ambassador this power. It could lead to fights. If it's honestly that bad, why not ask for another moderator?

16. poopsiedoodle

How would it lead to fights? o-o

17. Opcode

The scary thing is nobody knows how these fights happen... They just happen -_-. I assure you, watch the biology chat. You'll see it happen :3

18. mathslover

I agree, not only because I am also an ambassador but because of the spams in the chats and trolls. Moderators are sometimes too much formal and they think too much before taking any action , that's good but when they take action the spammers have already spammed and spoiled the chat. I think many of the ambassadors are quite active on this site and give their time to stop spammers. I agree that some of the ambassadors are amateur to handle the situations but still there are some who can . Giving some ambassadors a 5 minute suspend ability is not a bad idea and even a good idea which can increase the perfect use of chat rather than spamming. This topic has to be given importance.

19. uri

I agree with that too? :D

20. andriod09

I agree for the same reason with @mathslover The moderators aren't in chat most of the time, their doing their own things, and that leaves us reporting things that are harmful, and misconduct from the CoC. Me, @SWAG, @uri, sometimes @Ashlyisakitty, @poopsiedoodle and others are here all day (or most of it) dealing with things like the spam, and such. Give at least the people who stay on longest the power for a 5 minute suspension, or listen to what we have in the post by @amistre64. I honestly do agree with this, and if given the power, I'm pretty sure that not one of the ambassadors will abuse this power, i know me and @SWAG won't.

21. amistre64

mute, suspend, ban, .... none of it amounts to a hill of beans when you sit and have to do it to every single new account they make. The mods are doing what they can with the tools that they have. Giving more people buttons that are ill suited to the issue is not going to alleviate the problem.

22. amistre64

..and dont put your chocolate next to your laptop ... unless you are wanting chocolate soup :)

23. andriod09

its only whilst Mods are AFK or Not online, most of them are busy doing their own school work and are studying.

24. russano

Sorry about all that spam a few minutes ago. I got hacked. I was trying to close the tab on Alec's computer, but that didn't happen. I changed the password though.

25. mikala1

well how can he post this when he was just banned for spamming over 5 min he was spamming for 5 min so he have say so in this i dont think it is right but hey that is just me

26. russano

mikala, I just explained what happened.

27. poopsiedoodle

If I had this, I'd have probably just sus'd myself.

28. ~Chance~

I think that it is a wonderful idea to give ambassadors a suspend for 5 minute button. Go poopsiedoodle

29. erdog82

@poopsiedoodle Huh? Why would you suspend yourself?

30. poopsiedoodle

because I got hacked .-.

31. erdog82

oh.. That stinks :(

32. poopsiedoodle

That it does.

33. erdog82

Can you stop it in any way? Is the person who hacked you a user? (of OS)

34. poopsiedoodle

Yup. @DingusBrain

35. poopsiedoodle

but he doesn't know my password anymore.

36. erdog82

That's good

37. uri

I want chocolate soup :3

38. poopsiedoodle

$$\huge\text{Great addition to the discussion.}$$

39. SWAG

@uri That was unnecessary.

40. poopsiedoodle

@swag is right, but chocolate soup DOES sound pretty good.

41. SWAG

That sounds nasty

42. mathslover

I reported but nothing happened, at least the user spoiled the chat for 5 minutes ...

43. SWAG

I reported several incidents but as you said @mathslover, Nothing happened.

44. mathslover

I am not blaming any mod or the service but just telling what I saw and experienced. There are many cases ... OS admins and mods need to think for a soln of this problem. . I hope they are

45. SWAG

I have said this many times, we all know here that they have lives and are very busy people, but those times that they are off doing their own thing these things seem to happen & we all report them many times but nothing ever seems to happen. It eventually gets annoying and very disruptive.

46. mathslover

I agree with @SWAG

47. SWAG

Thank You @mathslover

48. uri

@SWAG That was kind of rude,you can't tell me what to do,Thanks :)

49. SWAG

There is nothing rude about it. I am telling you it is unnecessary & as an Ambassador you are breaking CoC, Therefore I CAN. I was simply warning you. THANKS!!!

50. uri

KTHXBYE.

51. poopsiedoodle

$$\Huge\mathfrak{Erm... okay then.}$$

52. SWAG

LOL I believe the term is KTB @uri

53. Opcode

C'mon Everyone stop fighting -_- Just let the Admins/Moderators decide.

54. SWAG

Who is fighting sir

55. uri

We are not fighting -_-

56. Opcode

Okay, then you're debating ^_^.

57. SWAG

I am talking sir.

58. uri

Thats how i talk to my Friends ^_^

59. Opcode

Withdrawn :3

60. poopsiedoodle

$$\Huge\text{ORDER IN THE COURT}$$

61. SWAG

I wonder if an Admin has even seen this

62. Opcode

There's a purple guy watching us again :3

63. poopsiedoodle

Probably not :<

64. poopsiedoodle

Opcode, that's Saif. He's just a mod. Not an admin.

65. uri

Its @saifoo.khan :3

66. SWAG

67. uri

He is a moderator only!

68. poopsiedoodle

no, just a mod.

69. SWAG

I will bet my soul he is a Admin.

70. uri

I know Saif is just a Mod,ask me :3

71. ParthKohli

@saifoo.khan is just a moderator. But yes, he is in the user advisory team which has a separate social site for discussions.

72. SWAG

Do I owe you my soul now...@ParthKohli

73. Opcode

Nope. I collect those :-).

74. joannaxox3

well i am not ambassador but i sort of agree on this a lot of people continue to spam and its not stopping...but on the other hand if ambassadors give 5 min suspension to those who spam then it will be alot of work.

75. poopsiedoodle

Also, we are currently being hacked by a certain someone (@dumbsearch2) so, this would be rather useful right now.

76. jazy

I don't think the ability to suspend users, should be granted to ALL ambassadors. The Amby's are doing awesome, I'd never say otherwise. However, too many people with this ability could be chaotic for the site... it means more people wanting a say in the changes, and the debating begins. Perhaps if just a few were given this ability, at least to control chats, it would be alright.

77. stabar

I dont realy mean to join this and upset anyone but...ALOT of what the moderators do have caused many people to stop useing this sight period. There are many other sights like this that people can use, and I just dont think its a good idea to give more people on here more power than they realy need because its causeing you to loose people and I am even just about to stop using this sight because sometimes your question will be colsed and deleted just because someone replyes to your question with bad words...please excuse my spelling

78. poopsiedoodle

Well, the people that we lose are usually the people that we didn't need here in the first place.

79. stabar

well thats a nice way to try to keep people comming to this site -_- no matter what you do there will ALWAYS be people that do things, best to just let them do what needs to be done...to an extent

80. andriod09

81. poopsiedoodle

Well, no. Not at all. If it's against the CoC, then they need to get a warning or suspension. Otherwise, the CoC will be considered as a joke, and the website will be filled with foul-mouthed cheating spammers.

82. stabar

well could they atleast not delete questions then so that I can still access it and get the other replyes that I havent read...because I cant help what people post

83. andriod09

I second @poopsiedoodle 's last post. most people who have been spaming/flaming other member's of this site have been foul-mouthed, and say that nothing would happen to them because the CoC is, and i quote this from the first spammer i met as my time as an ambassador: "A piece of junk because the mods are pieces of 'sh*t' and won't do a damn thing." Until he was banned/suspended for idk how long.

84. TuringTest

I like @JamesJ 's idea of having a 5 second delay between posts in chat to prevent copy-paste madness, and I also propose a limit to length of a post in chat, so that people can't copy-paste the whole communist manifesto and post it 30 times in 5 seconds.

85. poopsiedoodle

wait wat? the communist manifesto? that actually happened?

86. TuringTest

No, I was just using a silly example :P With the current setup it would be possible though...

87. poopsiedoodle

Oh. Yeah, I've seen some pretty long spams.

88. poopsiedoodle

But, then again, these ideas that we're mentioning that aren't from the original post have all been suggested before, but not accepted.

89. TuringTest

yeah, so some character limit is in order I think. Then people can only post short spams, and with a delay between posts they can't fill up chat with stuff like . . . . . . . very quickly

90. TuringTest

It's not that they have not been accepted, just not yet implemented. Keep the ideas on the table and I guarantee they are being considered.

91. andriod09

hey, instead of a suspension button, what about a warning button? I'm pretty sure that would be better, but only for those who are here most of the day that are here for the spam; once an account has so many warnings from an (DIFFERENT) ambassadors, lets say 3 (DIFFERENT ambassadors) they would be automatically suspended for _ amount of time, according to the infraction.

92. uri

I like this ^

93. poopsiedoodle

That works too.

94. Opcode

Why not just get a new moderator?

95. uri

Make opcode a moderator,wait no.

96. Opcode

I don't want to be a moderator :P But there are some good people like, @SWAG .

97. SWAG

Ah thanks @Opcode

98. stabar

What is choclate soup? sounds pritty nasty

99. uri

Have you eaten a melted chocolate? Like Diary milk? Try it :3

100. stabar

so is it just like choclate milk?

101. uri

102. stabar

I have no Idea what that is?

103. uri

104. stabar

105. uri

106. stabar

107. uri

108. poopsiedoodle

Ovaltine :3

109. stabar

110. andriod09

111. uri

I used to have ovaltine when i was a baby,its for babies @poopsiedoodle.
