I've added Liza's now too.
Oooh hmm I was thinking a larger general category under which we can have all creativity and the sort of general topics, with more of an emphasis on... connections?
An example I was thinking was you sign up for an extra class related to a particular area or something (e.g. sport club, dancing club, coding club etc) and you meet people and maybe you become friends, and discover there are a whole heap of things that cross with your love of what you were doing, but also other things and hobbies and shared interests that you have. And you think they're so awesome that you want to hear about whatever it is that they're working on, whatever they're learning or creating. (Okay I feel very in awe of a lot of people and I do want to see everything that they're up to)
I think maybe a part of the lounge's reason for existence might have been to cover this — for users who want to extend their conversations maybe — but it was meant to be in private, whereas we wanted things to be accessible.
one of my dreams is that we Hopscotchers get to work on things together and with others when we're older like being part of a community and staying friends and you just make stuff together hehe... and dream about the world together...
Whoopsies I went on for a bit too much again... but that was just an extra idea for something that might be touched upon... I also dreamed if later on we had a separate site where we could focus on that and have that as our values, but it's a bit more outside the scope here. I hadn't looked much but I guess sort of how there is this site where people have interesting discussions, their focus is on human thought and rationality but it is very broad — from science to philosophy.
Anyway I was just thinking of that general theme, but I wasn't really sure how to describe it
Hey @TheAcingGamer you must have been feeling frustrated, making all your topics too, and you do care a lot about the content of this community. And I see you think putting things in place to limit topics more to Hopscotch would be helpful I have put that in the topic as well.
(it was thanks to your topic that had me on a spur to make this one too )
