Trust me though @sasogeek you will love it, let's just say that you will be making the new OS ;)

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.

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.

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 :)

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
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. (:

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.
 10 months ago

PreethaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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...
 10 months ago

bahrom7893Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
@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.
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
You will be fixing or coming up with solutions to the problems that we will announce need fixing.
 10 months ago

PreethaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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..
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
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.

Ok for example, this site is too reliant on Ajax and JavaScript, how can we fix that?
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Or another thing is, how can we fix the ban/suspension avoiding?
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
All these and more will be the things you and your team will work to resolve.

e.cociubaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So it's true. A new OS will be created. Correct?
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
If we work together... YES :D

e.cociubaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So then what will happen to this one? Will our accounts be transferred?
 10 months ago

bahrom7893Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.

bahrom7893Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@e.cociuba if the "translation" of the site is successful, there would be no need. We'd be connecting to the same databases.

Ok @Preetha would we be supplying the server side code to them?

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.
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
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.

e.cociubaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.

bahrom7893Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
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.

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
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.
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
yes there is but right now that would demolish the site.
 10 months ago

bahrom7893Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Ok so are there any takers to help me organize this hackathon?
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
yes but you are not the only user...
 10 months ago

bahrom7893Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.
 10 months ago

JA1Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
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?

bahrom7893Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I can help you out, but again, not on a consistent basis. Or maybe like once a week.

Well you will be helping in the hackathon though right?

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.

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
