## amistre64 6 months ago This is a blatant abuse of this site.

1. amistre64

we need a better way of dealing with these types of situations. I have had to suspend multiple accounts related to the same IP address all asking for the same thing.

2. amistre64

@Preetha i have no at the moment which other administrators that I could tag that might be able to deal with this.

That person asked me to do his work for 50\$

4. Compassionate

This thread is great.

Somebody today was asking for a history exam to be done for 150...

I wonder if these people realize that when done for pay, this goes beyond simple academic dishonesty and can can have legal consequences.

Those types of post aren't right. I've seen so many people on this site that all they want is answers and not help and there willing to bribe people to get the answers they need. Wish there was something we could do about it besides just suspending the account for a few days.

$$Solution~for~fast~answers~\to~from~my~Experience~!!$$ Well, I found a solution "For people Who need Answers So Soon", I tried out for past few days, it really works in a friendly way of solving as well as helping the students learn. 1. Wish them $$\to$$ makes them feel special and friendly. 2. Ask why need soon $$\to$$ ex: "i can finish this and go home early" 3. Tell them, you need help with them and together you can sort it out, as fast as possible $$\to$$ just gives a relief to the asker and they asks u how? 4.Start with terms in questions: Example: My Name is koikkara ! U $$\to$$ Can U say about Koikkara, as i don't know if it is right or wrong ? 5. Give them clue/hints close till they identify answer., you can give out answers in such a way the asker will not identify directly from it. 6. Wind Up:$$\to$$ Sweet Talks. Ex: Nice to meet you. \{Most~Important:\) Appreciate them with each answer, right or wrong no matters.. $$\to$$ Helps asker to learn quickly and talk freely.. $$Reference:$$ Look at my style of Answering !.. $$Hope~it~helps~!!$$ @TQKMB

@muzzack I don't think anyone has a clue what you're talking about, this thread is about users paying for exam answers. Not about you. @koikkara Nice strategy, but not related to the topic. We don't want to help users who are taking a test or exam. Yea we need a better way to deal with this other than the usual endless "suspend $$\to$$ new account" cycles. Either IP ban tool or upgraded account registering system which keeps suspended people out.

i think this site needs to be shut down because all people are using it for is to get answers. even people that do not have an account with Open Study all the do is highlight and copy and search the question whether it be math/history/science, you name it. Then the go in goggle and find their question open it up then read along find the answer then go back and answer their question

@Amistre62 @Compassionate @ParthKohli @shrutipande9

12. e.mccormick

Marco, tagging 3 moderators and an ambassador,, none of whom own or run the site, is going to do very little. Might want to go to the term/code/etc. page and use the contact email for something like that.

13. Marco,Phillip

I am just making a statement thats all

14. amistre64

There are people who actually use this site as a study site, so your all inclusive statement is a bit extreme. Another rebuttal is that we see the same question over and over again on this site, which suggests that people do not simply google to find their question/answer. Does cheating happen? yes. Is it an abuse of this site? yes. All you do by shutting down the site is punish those who do NOT abuse the site.

15. Koikkara

@amistre64 Wonders how does IP ban works ?

16. amistre64

an IP ban simply takes not of your IP address, and says that anyone from that address is not allowed to play on the site.

17. amistre64

an Internet Protocol addy is more specific than a useraccount. and thereby is more focused on the persons that create an account instead of the accounts themselves.

18. amistre64

the person continues to make new accounts and continues to ask for the same thing.

19. Muzzack

yes this is horrible

20. Muzzack

there is a user that is willing to ask money to people, im guessing @amistre64 knows, his name is @wewerk and this is very bad because he keeps doing it and can cause OS into more trouble and financially go down and marketing and stuff like that im so sorry this is happening to you mods :( @amistre64 you are one of the best mods ive seen in my whole OS experience @thomaster very helpful, but i dont know him very well @Hero one of my heroes, he is one of the most helpful mods ive seen but why the abuse of this site. I dont understand........;-;

21. amistre64

one day we might be given some tools that can actually combat this type of thing. until then ... its an uphill climb :) and thnx

22. Muzzack

your welcome my successful and great mod

23. Koikkara

@Muzzack You mean this one...like this ? @amistre64 For example..

24. Koikkara

@Muzzack $$\color{darkgreen}{~''Nice~To~Meet~You~!!"}$$

25. Muzzack

yeah actually that one asked me too

26. sammixboo

Wow. Paying people for answering questions? Nonsense.
