I tagged all you so the word can get around so please share :)
wow that wasnt vague at all
i'm confused xD for what cause to you need people?
Just go with it guys, you all will know later :)
there's no point to wanting in on something you have no idea about. take it or leave it.
Trust me though @sasogeek you will love it, let's just say that you will be making the new OS ;)
Or helping to make it actually.
;_; committing to something without knowing what it is is past me... YOURE TEARING US APART. AAAAAAAHHH
having said that, I'll advise you :) making this post is wrong to begin with. You should've spoken to Preetha about it, and since it is her website and application, she can then decide what the next course of action would be if she agrees to your idea, which of course you'd have to have a discussion about beforehand.
Um, she old me to @sasogeek
Jai, find a couple of people who can work with you on this.
she did? then I must say though that i'm surprised that she didn't put that up herself but either way. it's still quite vague and very much unclear what all this is about so I'll pass.
Uhm no, i won't be able to respond to calls at any given time.
Nor am I mature.
hehe ok then @bahrom7893
Again let me clarify, the group I am making is only going to organize the "hackathon" those with me will not participate in it (unless you want to) but will help me organize the "hackathon" with the help of Madam Preetha. So you won't be making the new OS you will help to organize the vent that will :)
There is some confusion, you do not have to code, you just have to organize this event with me, you will NOT be making the new OS.
Folks, I asked JA1 to help organize a hackathon for OpenStudy. He needs help from all of you - so be kind. Saso you are an OS veteran, please help him. Saifoo, hba, ash, aravind you folks are all wonderful resources. What would it look like? How could we pull this off virtually? What can we build that would be of use? Ja1 is leading it - but he needs a team. Lets put our egos on the shelf and work together - as a team. And my thanks goes out to all of you wonderful OpenStudiers who make my day - every day - a thousand times. (-:
One big happy family working together to make a better house :)
Define hackathon.... What level of experience is required? As far as I can tell, half of the people mentioned on here have 0 to very little programming knowledge.
But many do. Surprisingly. A hackathon is when people get together and work on projects that they come up with, over a short period of time like a day or a week end...
And what are we expected to create during this hackathon. I might join, but only as a volunteer. I probably won't have time to do this full time.
@bahrom7893 This team will only be making the hackathon, but the hackathon itself will be a competetion between groups of people (you make the groups) working together to make a new OS by fixing the problems addressed.
You will be fixing or coming up with solutions to the problems that we will announce need fixing.
That is right. We need to create the structure - to call for participants, determine what the rules are, how will people code together... that kind of stuff..
Which will be the teams job, then the participants of the hackathon will fix them :)
Give me a sample problem. Sorry, but right now this looks like it will turn into a huge mess. I've worked in a team of 7 professional developers, and that was horrible.
Or another thing is, how can we fix the ban/suspension avoiding?
All these and more will be the things you and your team will work to resolve.
So it's true. A new OS will be created. Correct?
If we work together... YES :D
So then what will happen to this one? Will our accounts be transferred?
Ok @Preetha would we be supplying the server side code to them?
Exactly, see you do have the right stuff :D but there will be more problems, of which the team I am assembling will come up with.
So i have heard. It seems like this subject has been talked about for awhile, but no action is being taken. Is this why you want to put a group together? I say @bahrom7893 you join since ur an expert in this typical stuff.
To avoid chat spam, we could implement a timer, which would not let you post say 5 messages in 10 seconds; and to avoid 2 words per chat or per post we could implement another validation check that runs on browsers, and would probably reduce spam
Well bahrom would be good for the hackathon itself, but the team I am making will only organize the hackathon but yes bah you would do good.
Well maybe what we could do is have a deadline for the design and the top contenders will then be given more time for the final code itself.
Oh and also for ip/proxy bans: Proxies are pretty easy - just keep a blacklist that gets autoupdated from some site with latest proxies. I'm sure there's a lot of freeware out there that lets you do that.
The design is the most important thing,well that and a concept of how to fix the problems, then you could work slowly towards the full website.
yes there is but right now that would demolish the site.
too laggy as it is
I don't think that would have any effect, since the checks would only occur at login. Your login time might be slower by like a second, but once you're in, you should be fine.
Ok so are there any takers to help me organize this hackathon?
yes but you are not the only user...
Yes that is the main point, but we need a team to make this possible, so any takers to help me make the hackathon???.... No one?
Well you will be helping in the hackathon though right?
But some of the people I would like to be on the team for the making of of the hackathon would be @hba @AravindG @saifoo.khan and others but I forgot their usernames xD
You can count on me ;)
YESH 1 team member down, we need 2 more.
The on call part is where I see an issue... I am already on call 24/7.
Well I mean just to be available every now and then, it's not like I am going to need you at 3 am lol
Yes... I only like to be woken up at 3AM when it is an actual emergency.... I know some coding, by no means a true programmer (but I am learning more), have been involved in more than one project team as part of my job, I have been not only a proponent of the CoC but also encouraged its refinement as situations develop, I reported a number of bugs I found here, and I see the items of focus discussed above as being key issues that need to be addressed.
I'm mature, but not available all the time. Plus, I can't say yes to something I don't know .-. You tagged us because you think we'd be up for it, right?
No I just used my old tag list so word would get around :/
@Kitt020912 JA1 "I tagged all you so the word can get around so please share :)" It is the message after the tag. hehe.
I was too lazy to compile a new and refined list so I used an old one lol
Uhm, okay then lol.
Yes but he would be good for the hackathon itself, I am organizing a team that will halp make the hackathon possible.
hackathon? Do I need to ask?
It is a software devlopment party.
Count me in too.
interesting . .
xD @thomaster nice ven diagram
Well, the ban/suspension should be taken away from the community I think Only the ambassadors should have that right we've already had a ambassador banned because of this ban because the community didnt like that he was chosen for ambassador take that ban away from the community if something is going on the community needs to contact the ambassadors then if it is something that needs more than 24 hours the ambassadors will contact a MOD.
All this can be discussed once we have the team, but I do agree with you partially @evonhowell
