1. trumpetmaster7777

lololololol

2. dmezzullo

We had our first victim caught this mornin

3. Jack1

"will be suspended"...from connections academy or from openstudy?

4. Jack1

I'm in Tazzie, so I don't give a damn either way, just curious

5. dmezzullo

Openstudy and if a connections mod sees u will be in trouble with connections to

6. dmezzullo

Watch wut u say plz

7. Jack1

do you blokes have school teachers watchin these fourms...?

8. dmezzullo

yea there's some teachers that are here occasionally watchin for cheaters

9. Jack1

sorry mate, the D-word isn't a vulgar term down here, my bad

10. dmezzullo

its fine i jus dont want u to get in trouble

11. Jack1

gotcha, cheers

12. Jack1

mate if you don't mind us asking, what's with the circle A in front of your name...?

13. dmezzullo

Good Question! I am an ambassador, I am here to welcome new people answer their questions about the site and try to keep the chats clean so the mods dont have to waste their time and do it

14. Jack1

ah ha, how'd you get that gig? Are you one of the first users/designers?

15. dmezzullo

No i jus applied to be one and the CEO of the site gave it to me bc i was picked

16. Jack1

sweet... CEO? Is this a for-profit site? How do they make their money?

17. dmezzullo

This is a non-profit site im pretty sure

18. Jack1

alright, well, good chats, cheers to meet you d slaters

19. allie_bear22

there just gonna do it there messages so it really dosnt make a diffrence

20. terenzreignz

Doing it there has a lot more hassle... you can only do so one at a time... and you can't root out the Connections students using messages..., at least not like when you have a question that all can see...

21. bahrom7893

Awesome idea

22. Mufasa42

Lol what the hell is suspending gonna do? Just use a proxy and get around the suspension. nbd.

23. terenzreignz

You'd know all about it, @Mufasa42 ? LOL Just kidding :)

24. Mufasa42

Actually, yeah I would. I've been here for awhile.

25. .Sam.

I just keep suspend them, no choice :\

26. Mr_Rogers

I would just like to say. Kids are smarter than that. Every time i answer a question *not my original account, i go to connections* i get asked if i attend connections. I know a few people that cheat all the time. This isnt going to stop them.

27. primeralph

can I issue the punishments?

28. .Sam.

@primeralph report button

29. primeralph

death by studying! or 23 years of staring at contemporary art

30. Thatguiljess

You people are Delinquents, did you know that?

HALALUJA FINALLY SOMEBODY GETS IT! Guys florida virual school and Connections academy are in a batlle with openstudy...they are mad because students are getting answers from this website. Understand, they are threatening suspension or even expulsion if you disobey them! We want to protect you! that means we have to suspend you! I have personally assisted in the writing of letters to these schools and I am fed up with all of the outright cheating as i know mrs preetha and all the mods are! Thank you sam! Thank you! You just made this a lot easier.

*hallelujah

33. terenzreignz

So... questions that go like "Does anyone go to Connections Algebra 1b" or something like that... that's the giveaway, right?

34. .Sam.

something like that

35. terenzreignz

Did it ever occur to them that these online virtual schools were not yet completely thought-out? I mean, it offers so many avenues for cheating that are simply unavailable in a conventional classroom situation.

Terenz we also have plenty of mods and members who go to these schools and can tell us if they have taken these tests!

37. terenzreignz

Yeah. We know...Not the brightest idea for you to make an online school with a answer site at your fingertips...

39. Jhannybean

Wow that's ridiculous.

40. primeralph

.................I personally, don't like the idea of online schools............or specifically, online exams

41. amistre64

42. .Sam.

43. Andresfon12

sleeping -_- zz

44. wmckinely

45. AravindG

An online school

46. Andresfon12

i guess is k-12 online school ?

47. nathan917

I am in Connections. And i have also been banned. i don't know why. And i found a way around it.

48. nathan917

My first warning wad from .Sam.

49. nathan917

was.* For no reason.

50. nathan917

Then i don't know who gave me the other one.

51. nathan917

But i found a way around it. And tc bye.

52. nathan917

Why did .sam. leave? lol.

53. amistre64

its not that we do not want connections academy students here; but most of the posts that we come across titles to the effect: im in connections academy and want to find someone in my class and grade to swap answers with so email/message/give me answers" type posts we simply just suspend the account and delete the material.

54. dmezzullo

@.Sam. Can i make a correction? It should be a :)* at the end of the post.

55. AravindG

:)

56. .Sam.

@dmezzullo

57. .Sam.

the smiley

58. dmezzullo

Oh lol

Also @amistre64 and @.Sam. and all of the mods admins and ambies are here to protect you! These schools want to suspend kids and ban kids for this stuff. You make it so easy for them. By posting i go to Connections Academy. All they have to do is pose as a kid ask you to go to a link that looks like a connections link and BOOM your username will pop up as on that page and they will know you are the one using the site. I am not paranoid. It has happened before!

By the way @.Sam. Your picture is great lol...all the sudden when you click a report button here comes Jack sparrow to the rescue. It is very, very, attention grabbing lol. like saifoo's picture that basically when he pops up looks like he is saying "Nope, I dont thiiinnkkk soooooo, *click* suspended"

@saifoo.khan

62. dmezzullo

LOL

63. .Sam.

lol

64. Jhannybean

So how does one go about becoming a mod compared to becoming an ambassador?

65. e.mccormick

@Jhannybean Good question, but perhaps ask it on the feedback board. Might get answered there.

66. trumpetmaster7777

I take online school, and I come here to ask questions when I don't know how to do a specific problem, is that cheating?

67. e.mccormick

68. trumpetmaster7777

thanks @mccormick

69. josie_2015

@.Sam. about how many times have you bumped this? lol

70. .Sam.

@josie_2015 lost count

71. andriod09

How long is the wait time to bump this @.Sam.?

72. .Sam.

76140 seconds

73. gabaloolo

wow

74. SWAG

i wish there was an unfollow button lol

75. andriod09

good god. that's a long time. you can bump it again in 52 days. :O

76. .Sam.

@andriod09 you need to get on maths section more othen, if you know what I mean ;)

77. andriod09

I'm always on math. I'm just too busy doing my own school work to help anyone. :P Plus, i'm only a freshman in AP Algebra 1, I odn't know most of the stuff here. Not to mention that I suck at fractions and decimals.

78. .Sam.

You don't get it do you, its about converting 76140 seconds :)

79. malevolence19

I love how people are like... WHAT?!?! People literally copy paste or SCREENSHOT their homework and people just give the answers away without showing any work or providing any explanation. They will literally post a question and the first response will simply be: 'a'. Those people should be suspended too :P

80. andriod09

I got it wrong, didn't i? I don't think i did?

81. malevolence19
82. andriod09

grrr. like i said, i'm stupid. someone mind telling me the formula for converting seconds into hours then?

83. andriod09

Yes, it is. I'm stupid. I've already said that.

84. malevolence19

I mean you know there are 60 minutes in an hour and 60 seconds in a minute...what formula? $1 \sec * \frac{1 \min}{60 \sec} * \frac{1 \text{hr}}{60 \min}=\frac{1 \text{hr}}{3600}$

85. malevolence19

So every second is a 3600th of an hour so if you have 3600 seconds you have exactly one hour or: $\frac{76140}{3600} \text{hr}=21.15 \text{hr}$
