Jaynator495 one year ago Request a Openstudy feature to be added and i may make a Extension for it, What do you think should be added. then i'll try to DEMO it and maybe get it added if its good and should be on openstudy, so what do you think should be added? (ofcs all credit will go to the person who thought of the idea) Some of you may be thinking, "dont you have enough openstudy projects going as it is?" the answer is no i can never help enough :D

User search! I know there is one but I don't believe there is one on the os domain itself which I would like.

2. anonymous

for us to be able to delete unwanted post off our questions from other people!!!

3. Jaynator495

I have already made a user search, would you like it to be incorperated in a extension somewhere on the page, and if so where?

4. DARTHVADER2900

@HWBUSTER00 That is a good idea!

5. anonymous

that would be so appreciated

6. Jaynator495

HWBUSTER, that cannot be done... for many reasons... One is the extension would need direct access to the server, and at one point it was... but sadly it was abused and had to be removed

7. Jaynator495

@EclipsedStar I have already made a user search, would you like it to be incorperated in a extension somewhere on the page, and if so where?

8. anonymous

oh wow it got removed how can you abuse that

9. anonymous

just ignorance

10. Jaynator495

good question, but trolls and spams would abuse it somehow :/

11. DARTHVADER2900

Good point.

12. anonymous

so you just cant make it to only the person who asked the question could deleted unwanted spam because it happens a lot.......either that or there should be more mods

13. EclipsedStar

http://prntscr.com/7aeabu We do need something here XD

14. Jaynator495

Well back to requesting features x'D Oh and theres a point i missed, if its going to be a LOT of work to add, the feature will need a few people agreeing to be made soon, otherwise it may be at the bottom of my todo list x'D just because it may become a point wheres there is too many projects

15. anonymous

@EclipsedStar LOL blank space

16. Jaynator495

Eclipsed thats where we leave slack... something may be changed later, such as when it goes HTML5, it may be widescreen finally.

17. Jaynator495

therefor when the happens we will have more space to stick things up there

18. EclipsedStar

hmm. I see. How about under the Fanned List? Jay I think you should decide where it should go.

19. Jaynator495

until then for certain monitors there still wont be enough room up there to add anything like that, unless its a button that opens a GUI

20. EclipsedStar

HW Buster, if that were added then it will be abused. We can leave deleting things to the adults.

21. Jaynator495

but then there will have to be a redesign to some things in order to fill the screen... That would take a lot of work sadly, but ill keep it in mind

22. mathslover

Make an extension for us to get a notification or pop up sound when there is a message received...?

23. anonymous

yesssss!!!!! @mathslover

24. Jaynator495

Thats actually a feature im planning to incorperate into the HTML5 conversion, but if you like i can make a extension to hold you off until the update, BUT the community will have to find the sounds to use for the sounds ;)

25. EclipsedStar

You mean desktop nitifications?

26. mathslover

Sound similar to the one used by Facebook is good, I guess. Light and clear. And yeah, similar to that, @EclipsedStar !

27. Jaynator495

If and when the HTML5 conversion is approved by preetha quite a few needed elements, and needed fixes will well yea... Desktop notifications may or may not be added... i was pondering the idea at some point...

28. Jaynator495

but i can make a desktop notification extension i guess, but a toggle for each individual user may cause some server strain if it where to be added.

29. anonymous

I was reading a message, and then @HWBUSTER00 deleted it. XD

30. Jaynator495

like i said, find the sounds, and ill make one to hold you off till its added, we will see about actual pop up messages that appear when not one the openstudy page though.

31. EclipsedStar

Just make sure you don't use copyrighted sounds x'D

32. Jaynator495

Exactly why im asking for you guys to find them LOL

33. mathslover

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEpsccXFBP8 How does this one look?

34. Jaynator495

it needs to fit in with the theme of openstudy, so i was thinking something like a WHO sound, but hmm... idk we shall see what we can scrounge up LOL

35. mathslover

Haha! Well, patience is the key! :P Just give it a try.... and if that sound doesn't work, we can replace it later... not a big issue, right?

36. Jaynator495

no not a big issue at all... x'D ok well that extension thankfully shouldnt be to hard at all LOL

37. EclipsedStar

Given Jay's prowess...I don't have anything to worry about when he makes things. xD

38. Jaynator495

$$\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @EclipsedStar Given Jay's prowess...I don't have anything to worry about when he makes things. xD $$\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ *fails to come up with a response*

39. mathslover

True that! Jay...at rescue! :D

40. Jaynator495

Pretty much at this point im thinking of what to put where on my to do list while i wait for more suggestions LOL

41. Jaynator495

that akward momment i see these... http://prntscr.com/7aegcv well one momment while i see what i can get from these LOL

42. mathslover

Lol! :D

43. Jaynator495

And im back, from pooja i can add spam filters and better mod tools lol

44. anonymous

another thing we should be able to play logic and skill games with our best buds

45. Jaynator495

A Indepent extension to make the create new subjects button visible, and functional, and the subjects will go through a aprove deny system maunally monitored, then once approved to be visible to people with the extension...

46. Jaynator495

just thought of that idea, hmm what are some others i can make ._.

47. Jaynator495

OH! More titles extension!

48. Jaynator495

so theresx more titles for more subjects ^_^ LOL

49. anonymous

We could have a lunch subject

50. anonymous

and a sports one

51. Jaynator495

._.

52. Jaynator495

maybe the sports, but no food subject LOL

53. Jaynator495

Hmm, let me check thomaters suggestion sheet

54. anonymous

shoot then why do we have a lunch class on my schedule

55. Jaynator495

To eat >_>

56. anonymous

O that must be why my teacher doesn't like me to eat in her class

57. Jaynator495

Extension that adds up total INDIVIDUAL (no duplicates) people who viewed a post.

58. Jaynator495

Search DM's extension

59. Jaynator495

Eh, wow i expected more suggestions by now LOL Oh well... welp while i wait im going to keep going through thomasters list here and see what i can make happen that would be good LOL

60. Jaynator495

Use the smartscore calculation on total number of points relative to others to calculate how far you are to the next smartscore relative to the person 1 higher at the least, and 1 higher at the most before and after the change... to calculate when you will level up, and a recomendation on what to do to level up based on your current stats. The only issue with this is it can be easily done HOWEVER, depending on your smartscore it may fluctuate a lot as people gain or lose points relative to you.

61. Jaynator495

Add different PERMISION level depending on trust value of users, and titles to go with those permsion levels.

62. Jaynator495

Add a @everyone tag that can be used ONLY by administrators to announce something, and a @EveryoneMandatory tag to forcibly bring everyone to the post, where they can choose to later leave (that last one can be usefull for things like CEO chat) and a @group to call people to a announcment only relevant to the group.

63. Jaynator495

Oh good lord poeple made accounts called that... LOL live and learn x'D

64. rational

extension that allows you to medal multiple people in the same thread w/o opening multiple tabs

65. Jaynator495

That is possible, but it would be abused... instead that should be with the permision levels that i actually intend to make and present to preetha.

66. Jaynator495

like i said, it would be over abused to high heaven... people with good permsion levels ofcs would be able to (or at the very least ambassadors and moderators LOL)

67. rational

im just throwing ideas, not here to debate appropriatenes.. ;p

68. Jaynator495

Openstudy redesign Extension, so you guys can test the stuff i can work on redesign wise

69. rational

extension that shows a list of "related" questions on the right side of question

70. Jaynator495

Openstudy Beta Extension: to test somewhat unstable things i make for openstudy.

71. Jaynator495

rational thats a good idea ill add it to the list

72. NobodysSalvation

For the multiple medals, you could limit it to the asker only. That way if they feel that they achieved the help through the cooperation of multiple people, they can reward everyone and not feel torn between putting someone first.

73. Jaynator495

Openstudy Alpha Extesnion: to test mildly to EXTREMLY unsable things i make for openstudy. (Use this at your own risk, ofcs this could BREAK your openstudy experience by messing things up, if this happens either disable or remove the extension until the next update)

74. rational

extension to delete the "dashboard" section which lists the useless info of all the online users and populate it with more questions

75. Jaynator495

The dashboard page is something different actually, the dashboard page is a moderator tool... ANYWAY... no, that is a essential page, it needs to be used... at the very least a "dashboard" icon can be added where if you push it a GUI will pop up with the dashboard... would that be okay?

76. Jaynator495

Toggle notifications extension, will also be included in the audible notifications and desktop notification extensions

77. rational

i don't use dashboard page at all

78. NobodysSalvation

For the private messages, there should be a grouping feature so that rather than all messages being separate, everything between you and another user remains in a single chat log.

79. Jaynator495

Extra Typsetting commands extension (essentially will add more TEX and MathML packages to the site)

80. Jaynator495

There are no private messages, only direct... your messages are 40% public nobody. But that can be done...

81. Jaynator495

ill keep that in mind nobody...

82. Jaynator495

Upon further consideration, it is possible, however it would be too computer intensive until the site was HTML5, so ill make it a recommended to have so and so hardware if you want that extension if i do make it.

83. kidrah69

1/4 of the list are my suggestions that i made in the previous post .-. 1) The broken accounts being fixed 2) Maybe "better" mod tools that can allow them to set user profile pic to the default owl (inappropriate pics) 3) Something for the spam on this site. Just today 50 posts of Nazism. So maybe a few reports can get the post deleted along with being suspended 4) A filter on the usernames (when people create new accounts) 5) For spam in the chats keep a spam filter. so like if someone writes a certain amount of words on going constantly and keeps spamming with them in under a minute they automatically have to wait 15 minutes or so till they can type again. ( i had a post about this.)

84. Jaynator495

Already took out what i actually could, and added it to my to do list

85. Jaynator495

Put in assorted scripts such as spam filters into EVERY extension i add to make sure that nobody will abuse anything.

86. Jaynator495

No i am not, however i am very lucky and fortunate to be the intern i am, as i get the honor of helping preetha with stuff like this and recommend certain things, and suggest new features, help devolep the site, and confirm/deny bugs/glitches

87. rational
88. rational

i want the group page to look something like that, the online users in the dashboard is a waste of space

89. Jaynator495

Thats what its going to look like (unless something happens) (sort of) once i submit the site as HTML5

90. Jaynator495

im thinking of how to orientate everything for that, but yea...

91. Jaynator495

THAT one is going to be difficult, but i have been meaning to add it to my list... thanks for the reminder x'd

92. rational

one more extension that makes latex "show up" while composing in the main question

93. rational

extension that allows you to tag/follow an interesting question without posting a silly comment in the thread

94. Jaynator495

That one im not sure if i can do, that stuff is all server based and can be abused to raise your smartscore REALLY fast, so i dont think i can actually do that one sadly

95. Jaynator495

it is a nice thought though, purhaps a favorite button? hmmm

96. rational

exactly! i see many ppl posting silly comments like "." or "*" in a thread to follow it

97. Jaynator495

ill have to ponder that on how it will handle that... that one wont be easy whatso ever, it will have to have its on seperate database... thats gonna be a large extension to work properly lol

98. Jaynator495

A script to automaticly change the placeholder for usernames, by testing for a username change and if one is detected to change the placeholders to the detected change, to allow for a username change, but because this feature if it IS added will cause a lot of strain, a timelimit must be applied to it, purhaps a namechange every 30 days? and people who have any involvment with that user should eceive a notification to know they changed there username... hmmm

99. Jaynator495

A Extension to have a mini fan button somewhere next to a person pic or name or something... this way you no longer have to wait for the tab to load.

100. Jaynator495

DM chat groups extension! hmmm wait no, if that where to be added it would need to be added on the main server because the administrators would need to be able to see everything...

101. rational

add geogebra plugin to the drawing board

102. rational
103. Jaynator495

Im going to get started on some of my projects... LOL

104. DARTHVADER2900

Let me know when you are done. :P

105. anonymous

my request (which has been requested before) : ~an extension to edit comments in a post ~an eraser tool for the drawing box ~a report button that will show up when you click a user's name (sometimes pfp and names are inappropriate, so it needs to be reported)
