Why doesn't OpenStudy get rid of the chats? reasons: cyber bullying cursing rude name calling no point in chat cause no one ever asks questions

OpenStudy (confluxepic):

The first three reasons can also happen on posts. And they do happen on posts. The fourth reason: People want help so they post the question link in the chats. People in the chats see it and go to the question. Faster help. :) You may want to support the idea of specific chat mods. @endlesslight254

good reasoning but even people that ask for help thre chat never gets the help they ask for there might be less bully on this website if openstudy kept private messaging

I have seen it many times. When someone posts a link in the chats then at least two people click it.

It should be: "Why doesn't OpenStudy get rid of the chats."

I know how it feels when someone makes mean comments.

same with me thats why i think the cyber bulling should be dealt with or chat should be shut down

OpenStudy (confluxepic):

If you see any bullying then try reporting it. If nothing happens then message a mod and tell the mod your issue.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

reporting doesnt ever seem to work the user gets a warning first but is never banned and the same person has the ability to make another account if the first one is banned

OpenStudy (confluxepic):

Mods can ip ban a user.

I was "bullied" like a minute ago, and it doesn't bother me.

Keep reporting anything you find to be violating the code of conduct.

their is a user in biology who has a banned profile but made a new one

OpenStudy (confluxepic):

Just ignore it. Bullies fuel up when they find someone actually getting annoyed by them.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

There are always inappropriate chats going on which is not right but it does help people post and answer questions faster.

OpenStudy (sleepyjess):

Most mods take bullying very seriously. If you see bullying going on, report, and in the comment box, put why you are reporting, put what the person said, and put which chat it's in

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Will do but there is also fowl language, should i report that also?

2 years ago
OpenStudy (sleepyjess):

yes, do the same thing, reason, chat message and chat

no problem :) anything that is against the CoC or TaC is reportable

what if reporting doesnt work and they keep bullying after the ban timer is up

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Possibly report the user once again?

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

but why why not keep them banned

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Well, I understood that when someone is banned, they can't come back...

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

So, you could possibly speak to a moderator about it again.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

they cant come back for three days but if they were banned again would they even stay banned or just get a long banned time

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

I do not understand what you are trying to say.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok let say a person gets banned once for bullying or bad language they are only banned for a short time before they get back on but what if they do the same thing again and get banned when they come back they will only continue

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Well, if they continue, then maybe the moderators will ban for months or possibly do an IP Ban. Then they cannot come back.

and a moderator suspension acts as a temporary IP ban

Yep

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok what if they dont get rid of chat but put more restraint on it like block out curse words or modator the chats every once in a while

2 years ago
eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

So if someone is bullying you just block and ignore/

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes, I was going to say that. ^

eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

There is already a cuss word filter so...

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

most people dont block people cause their either fighting back or leave and do nothing about it

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

i was just looking at a chat and it didnt seem like there was a cuss word filter on

2 years ago
eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

I get blocked by people I tell to follow the CoC and I have no problem whatsoever from that.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (sleepyjess):

There is a filter, but of course, there are ways to get around it

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes. I just saw a very inappropriate message on the math chat. ._.

2 years ago
eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

So...just ignore. Let the mods do their jobs, we don't need to interfere once it gets out of hand.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

i still think chat should either be watched or atleast just make it where only questions could be asked people will still have private message

2 years ago
eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

Some people and I have suggested getting rid of the chats altogether, but that just ended in protests by those who only come to os to chitchat.

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

ive already guessed that i think openstudy only keeps chat for the people cause without people the website would get shut down from being unused

2 years ago
eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

I do see the chats as useful because new users find their way around on how to use os, but if more people are going to leave because of the chats... :/

2 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

but thats why they have openstudy feedback for new users to ask questions that arnt related to math or biology

2 years ago
eclipsedstar (eclipsedstar):

Not all users know that there is an OS Feedback section.
