I want Ya'lls opion on this. I talked to Preetha Ma'am about this earlier and i came up with that there should be a "Troll and Spammers" chat were if someone trolls or spams they get sent their and the only people that are their are trolls and spammers, They can have their own chat, And own sets of questions and if they try to make a new account their IP is followed and they are sent back to "Detention".

    I was so tempted to laugh at this, but given the state of the Math chat a few minutes earlier, this would have been so handy :D

    For the love of god dmezz...Ma'am is used to talk to a married woman without using her name. the " ' " stands for the name just like the ' in "aren't" stands for the O in Not... If you are addressing a woman while using her name you say Mrs. NOT MA'AM...ma'am is used for a short version of Madam...WHICH IS USED TO TALK TO A WOMAN WITHOUT USING HER NAME... that being said please PLEASE i have already told this to a few people who have thanked me for telling them this...STOP SAYING PREETHA MA'AM It is NOT used to talk about a person with a phd...it is used to talk to any woman without using her name! It is used ONLY when you are refering DIRECTLY to that person...NOT when you are refering to someone that is not present! This is annoying me i am sorry to say lol...people really need to understand the use of these words! ...I am going to make a lesson in the english chat one day and tag every member of openstudy lol

    *they get sent* by whom ? and why ? They are here to annoy normal users, get attention. If a separate chat is made for them, they won't be able to do so, and will just RETURN to main chat (math/music/whatever).

    The Mods send em. they get sent their so they dont have to bother the other users that actually try to help and all that good stuff. And it would be set up so they couldn't jus go back to the normal chats until "Detention" is over.

    i would not say its 'bad' , i would say its not good enough. But i would thank dmezz for thinking about a potential solution for spamming problem. keep the ideas flowing in people, maybe we get one mindblowing idea in the sea of 'not so good' ones, or by combining few of them.

    Its just extra effort for a useless reason. Why must you put on the weight on a mod of moderating a chat FULL of the people who are creating ruckus for fun, when instead we can suspend them from general chat box so there doesnt need to be extra moderation

    Honestly I don't think it would make much of a difference to have a separate chat. As mentioned already, they'd prob make new accounts and come back. Trolls do that, its in their blood. lol. Though I like Ashley's idea of suspending "trolls" and "spammers" from the chat boxes.

    How about several lighter sanctions of varying degree? So that suspension isn't the minimal drastic action, for instance First Minor Offense - Suspended from Chats Second Minor Offense - Suspended from Commenting on Threads and Chats etc... However, much like normal suspension, this may still be circumvented by just making a new account. Just tossing ideas :)

    @darrius what sarcasm xD You know- you know your liked xD xD @ashleyisakitty But ya. I was thinking about this. They should have a better profanity filter (and if you do too much profanity, you get warned; even more profanity, suspended). And they should aslo have a flooding filter; too many chats per second is called SPAMMING; so warned for that, even suspended for a little while if persists (wow, this one would get me! xD jk). Yeah, well I think enough talking about it, I think I'll just program a little quick+dirty script which would accomplish all of these things... and show it to Pree which maybe she could use! (:

    Oh, and was there ever thought about the chats becoming SS-only ?? Like; what about 40+ ? As you know, there could still be spamming and such things.... it's just a lot of trolls come here just to spam and then make another account; this would hinder the process as the new account would have it's SS have to start from scratch. I've seen some even higher smartscore users spam... in which case, the same applies (:

    There are plenty of seperate "chat boxes" on OS, one for each subject and most of the subjects remain dead. IF all a spammer wanted to do was to post nonsense and vulgarity in a chatbox; they would do so in those empty subjects. I suspect the biology chat has become a "clubhouse" of sorts for people who want to behave in a certain manner. I do not approve of multiple chatboxes because i believe it is a safety issue with the minors that visit the site. I do not see the need to create a new chatbox for offenders to "do whatever they want" in; and then create a subroutine to route them into it if they try to make new accounts. It would be time better spent just to create a subroutine that kicks them out of the OS, or to a "we are having technical difficulties" page.
