I think there needs to be a filter for swear words in usernames because there are people with REALLY gross usernames (generally are spammers)

    I am tired of (mainly spammers) making new accounts with inappropriate names because its against the CoC and its really gross. If people want to be on here, they might as well be respectful

    @KeganMoore It is peaceful, but there just couple of trolls that need to be banned. I find people in this site nice and helpful better than wikianswers and yahoo answers.

    @bloodrain For sure, i just wish people didn't have ways around said filters, they misspell them purposefully to avoid them. What if new members were given a guest name until the username was checked? @Zale101 i am not just talking about those trolls, other things have gone down recently

    The only problem is who is going to check all the usernames? Thats going to require staffing.

    Yea, @Zale101 @bloodrain if i ran the site anyone over 80 would be username screeners, and if a databased username was inappropriate then the person who screened it would have to answer why

    That might be alright until the spammers start spamming the screeners by creating tons of usernames

    Have a set # of new usernames allowed daily

    That would also limit the amount of people who only come here for answers and just leave and never come back

    For now at least, make a limit on usernames per IP address

    The problem is that Open Study is Public, which means any people can come in and go whenever they want whether they are trolls or learners.

    who says it has to be purely public? Yes it may limit frequency, but in the long run private runs so much smoother

    Alright, here is my idea FOR NOW. Swear filter on usernames. If a user/troll gets past the filter then mods will have to do something about it. Maybe if a user has an inappropriate username, there could be a new mod tool that suspends them until they change the username. IP banning might be a bad idea because of schools having multiple students online. Mods should be alerted whenever someone's chat post gets filtered for swearing. any other ideas?

    also this should not be a burden for the regular users (hopefully)
