Ledah Group Title

Okay, so this is my concern. it involves the old and new users, so my concern is that people who are joining and people who have been here for a while have lost sight of what this site is really used for. Does anyone truly remember what openstudy is here for? some of the users think this place is meant to mingle and find a relationship. but this site is so much more than what you make it out to be.. and some of the other things I've noticed is that we still have a trolling problem, it hasnt really been taken care of, that also hinders our purpose as a official site..

    @Preetha I think you should take the time to read this. I have been part of OS for 2 years now and this is still one of our major problems. I dont think its been addressed yet.

    Yeah! OS is supposed to be used to help students achieve their educational goals. A place where they can come and get an understanding of new or difficult processes and such. Now it's used only for a hang out and a cheating site. :(

    the mod tools have not evolved to handle the growth of the site ... suspending an account when it takes less then 10 seconds to create a new account tends to defeat it.

    Wow. You guys all have very strong opinions about this. And I agree with most of them. I have only been on OS for like a month. Maybe two. But I looked over the rules, and most people do miss use this site. I have to confess - I have done this as well at times. Not the cheating thing!! I love to have things explained, and all I want is some help. I don't just post a question and ask for A B or C. As of now I am still trying to get help on a question. :/ But the talking to people, and making friends - I do a lot. Cursing, trolling, dating, and that I do not. But everything you guys are saying saddens me. To know how things once were, and how they are now....You all make great points, and really know who to argue them! :) I hope everything you wish this site to be like will happen here soon. ♥

    and also i think new users should record them selves reading a oath that says they promise to follow OS CoC and that email will be sent and the OS company will either approve the account and activate it or decline it. This is were the evading suspension part comes in before the OS company activate it they check the IP address to see if any users have been suspended with the same IP address. i think this is a great idea : )

    Now this was a long thread! Yes the site has grown a lot over the years we got new features and many new users. I have seen students misusing the website, be it cheating, talking nonsense on chat and stuff like that. As amistre pointed out above the mod tools have not been updated along with this change. On a positive note we are having new admins now and they are planning to bring in more updates and tools that will help this site reach its goals more efficiently. The delay is due to the fact that they are first working on stabilising the system.For now lets wait, but make sure you report any case of misuse of this website using the report abuse button. You can message me also about the issue if you want. I will surely get back to you on it. It's the responsibility of each user to help this community grow in the right direction.Thank you.

    Well said, AravindG. It is up to each one of us to do what is best for the OS community. If we see something that needs addressed, we should address it and get a mod only if needed.

    I sure hope that they know that mods can see every account that was made or accessed from a single computer. So if one of our users just made that account to spam we can easily find out who it was.

    alright so heres my purposal. why dont we get like two of our older users to take on the roles of watching chats and groups where other mods dont see it. the thought is. the mods just need an extra set of eyes. so that we catch everyones attention that we arent just a joke. the trolling and cheating will be monitored but they wont be banned in that instant, they get about 2 warnings and if those warnings fail we go to a ban. i think this gives room for small slip ups here and there incase our users forget their purpose for coming here.

    its not the chat boxes, we could use an extra two mods or so. ones who know the ropes the ones who havent been in trouble before and have used this site properly, we need to get OS back to a level of helping each other and understanding our subjects. its the users that do this type of bit up above. the ones who pick at a problem constantly pushing buttons. there arent any mods available to handle these guys at my time so its really hard for me to self mod this without stooping to such levels of ignorance. but i'm able to control my temper and this is a fact. our users just flat out dont care anymore. this is to them " Their site". I will take back OS from them. cause this site still has greatness in it. I will not give up on trying to get a few sets of extra eyes out here. cause we definitely need them.

    Even though i'm new ( couple months or so ) taking away the social interaction will make many leave OS. Im not saying that i'm one of them or anything, but if this is what it takes to reach and hold new people, then we should deal with it. You may never know if one of those "people" helps someone with a question that nobody knows how to do.

    I think there are some very simple ways of caring of many of the different issues on this website. (a) One of the main problems is the chat and its dang easy to fix that issue. Either: (a) Limit the amounts of chats per minute (b) Remove the chat entirely (they are not ever related to the topic at hand) (c) if someone uses profanity more than like, 5 times (or any cap) they will be automatically warned, and if even more often banned. (b) Plagiarism in answers. You could try to fix that by using some free search engine APIs like Blekko to detect if the answer exists elsewhere.
