    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.

    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 :)

    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. (-:

    The ban/suspension thing is doable. Ajax/JavaScript is doable, but a bit more complicated. I'd have to look at code. Plus idk any Ajax at this point but it looks like ppl can learn it in under a month.

    Plus, at one point, shadowfiend told me that because of the way the site was written, users cannot be deleted, which seems totally wrong. Any online application involving storage should have create/update/read/delete methods. Actually, I should say required to have.

    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

    Not saying I know how to do that, but with the right amount of time I could figure it out. By the way, at this point, I'm only decent with java and just object oriented programming concepts (and maybe some html/css/js). I'm willing to help, but my job requires me to learn python, scala, C# and a bunch of other languages, so I'm not really sure whether I'd be able to contribute on a regular basis.

    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.

    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.

    Yea so it would probably slow down login times by a second for each user, but we'd have less people recreating accounts and putting rubbish in the database. But once you're logged in, the site would be the same, if not faster.

    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.
