Hey GUYS, great job delivering the formative, Even thought we hardly rehearsed we did great,

Now all we gotto do is tighten up the idea and agree on some deliverables.

I want us all to agree to meet up on a day next week,

i will tell you what days I am in and say what people think is reasonable:

we all got a bank holiday monday off, so thats out,

Tuesday i am in all day and have work to do, but i think the afternoon we can meet up around 12-1pm,

wednesday i have free so i can scome in anytime that day

thursday is all day e&E , so i guess that day will be more about agreeing on deliverables anyway so we may not need to worry about it

and friday is lectures all day.

so i guess if people wanna stick around and see what thursday will be all about, i guess thats fine, but meeting up will be a

MASSIVE HELP, making sure we all understand and can ask questions to tighten up the idea.

have a good weekend everyone!!

First Blog for the E&E Team project

we have already brainstormed several ideas. One we feel has strong potential is a website, which we will maintain to keep track of people online who play multiplayer games and are abusive and hurt the team spirit of the online community, bringing down the tone.

we thought of doing this idea of the black box, or a penalizing block out we impose on the users if they have been reported enough times, and we bar them from playing again, we restrict their online play.

that is a brief summary of our idea, it needs to be a lot more well thought out, but we feel the online play community does not have a good guarantee of blocking users who are being unpleasant and abusive online, we feel we have a good potential with this idea.
