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
And i could be the one to watch over it if it goes through.
Iron the details later... this is a nice idea :D
Yea exactly, cpme up with everything else later
come* I have some of the idea's now we would jus have to figure everything else out later.
Sounds like a good idea (:
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
Dude, snugg it isn't that big of a deal, She doesn't have a problem with it so plz chill out, If she don't want me calling her Ma'am i wont.
Dmezz...you know me...please...i am begging you...stop using ma'am...use mrs preetha...not preetha ma'am...PLEASE! second of all..."If she *doesn't want me calling her Ma'am I won't" lastly...i don't think she cares if you call her that....but don't use Ma'am out of context please...you are making yourself look bad. Not trying to be mean tho...call her Ma'am if you would like...but please not Preetha ma'am... Ma'am = OK! Preetha Ma'am = For the love of god PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop
This is a great idea indeed! Waiting to see what Preetha ma'am thinks about it.
Preetha Ma'am Sounds Very Nice ^.^
from now on...everytime someone says preetha ma'am i am going to find the cutest kitten i can and kill it...then if you say it again i will kill the cutest puppy i can find...if you still say it i will kill a new puppy AND a new kitten for ever single offence...
Preetha. Ma'am. Preetha Ma'am Go Find The Cat Now.
Lol Thats An Ugly Cat...
Next is the dog -_-
lol...dmezz is prob reporting me
I ain't reporting anyone, I am just sitting here listenin to music thinkin about how ridiculous u are sounding.
about snuggie's suggestion or yours ?: P
Mine about the trolls
I think it's a pretty good idea. Preetha ma'am has to see this.
And mine too hart...
Thats a bad idea. People will want to be sent to this "troll chat" where everyone will run free and without discipline.
I have talked to her about it she liked it (i think) i tagged her so she will def come check it out.
*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).
Then whats the point of sending them away? Just suspend them from chatting privileges.
Well, i have a feeling Preetha won't agree.
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.
why is 'they get sent...' better than they get suspended ?
Bc with getting suspended they jus come back and do the same thing, But with being sent to their own lil chat they wont be bothering the other users.
if i were a spammer, i would come back with another account, after being sent to that chat, to annoy normal users....
But there could be a thing set up where it recognises ur IP and u jus get sent bak there.
dmezz...there is no point to this...suspension is the same thing... you go to detention...is the same as suspension here...so please stop...being sent to another chat wouldnt help...so that is...i am sorry to say...a bad idea
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.
I actually like this idea.
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 :)
My opinion is...this question is getting nowhere...please close it...
this is an amazing idea....absolutely amazing
name it Detention or ISS (in school suspension) :p
Why dont they just add a spam blocker or whatever there called -_- so it wont allow people to spam in the first place.
Thanks ashley :P I was gonna make a thread about it, but im not liked on this website so no one would agree with me xD
@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 (:
Some newbies may want to remind the users on chat that they have questions that said users on chat may be able to help with.
@dmezzullo "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"." *cough* schools ? xD You know; IPs apply on a network basis... why do you think they didn't put IP bans on this site earlier then ??
Profanity filter wouldnt work people have ways around them :P OS is slowly going downhill im my opinion
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.
ok, And i agree with the techncal diffuculties thing.
you know, and the multiple chatboxes are already lagging OS :|
