A better idea would be to ask people willing to volunteer and work as a special team to tackle the problem rather than arbitrarily keep everyone there. Offer overtime pay or some sort of bonus or stock option to those who stay and join the team, thereby only keeping the ones that really want to be there on the task.

If only there were a universal protocol that ties people to a domain name and can allow them to send messages between each other. Maybe a few set of protocols as well, one for chat, like an Internet Relay Chat, and another one being a Simple Mail Transport Protocol.

Nobody wants to publish standards anymore, they just want to create their own shitty infrastructure based around obscurity.

Also would be nice to see the stupid circle animation and ajax response thing go away.

The fact that the result comes in the color orange and blue really make it look like someone just hacked together some code from a javascript library to build that in rather than code it all from scratch like our old masters from yesteryears would have done. A POST request followed by a Location: / should be plenty. No need for javascripty frills everywhere.
