Chat is going live!

Showing 1 to 7 of 7

Hi everyone!

So, we have sat down and set a date - the chat is going to be going in front of the pay wall on the 17th of March! That gives me two weeks to really get to know the site and of course all of you guys. :)

How do you all feel about this - are there any worries or concerns? Do you think we are ready? Do you think we have enough mods? Is there anything on the site that needs tweaking?

I've been warned that it is possible that we will get quite a large influx of new users because entire schools are able to subscribe to Get Revising. It might be okay, but it's also possible we'll have to add more people to Team GR to cope with the demand. Obviously you guys know the site much better than I do, so think about anyone you think would be good!

Thanks everyone! :D

Hi :)

I think we will be ready if there are more mods. Last time there was everyone there was like 150 people on the bio chat and it easily gets out of hand - it's difficult to control everyone, and it takes one user to disrupt everyone. Also we ended up having mass bans at times, where like 10 people broke the rules after warnings, and had to be banned - it was difficult to keep up with it all. 

Some extra hands on board will be great. :)

Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - At the start the study groups were open to everyone, then changes were made and up until now only a few users have been given access to the study groups - I think it was subscribers and people who joined after a certain date. Now it's being opened back up to everyone, so it'll get much busier like it was last summer when 100s were on each study group.

Just an update on this: I think there are too many problems with the site at the moment, there's a lot of issues to be resolved before we can make the chat available to everyone. So, I am working really hard at resolving them, then we can make chat go live!

Definitely will be looking in to recruiting more moderators, but I need to work on getting all the tech/development stuff put through first. :(

That sounds good - what we discussed on the study group the other day would be brilliant - like access to the private groups and deleting individual posts :)
