1st Birthday + Update to Forum


#1

Hi Hops,

:birthday: Happy 1st birthday to the forum!! :birthday:

In the last year, some really cool stuff has come out of the forum:

  • 2,000+ forum members!
  • 400,000+ posts in the forum (holy cow that is a big number)
  • Really cool trends and projects, especially through collabs

We thought the forum would make it easier for you to give and get Hopscotch help, but we had no idea what would come of it. We’ve been completely blown away.

Thanks for being a part of this!!

In its second year, the forum is growing up. We’re unveiling some features that we hope will help make it more useful for everyone. Drum roll…

The forum now has more than one category! Before, if you had a question about code, you posted in “Help”. If you wanted to do a collab, you posted in “Help”. If you found a bug in Hopscotch, you posted in “Help”. It was messy and confusing for us, and probably you, too.

VOILA!!!!

There are now 3 categories in the forum: Help, Collabs, and Bugs. Before you post something, ask yourself: “Why I am posting this?”

  • If you need help with code, post to “Help".
  • If you want to work with someone on a project, post to “Collabs”
  • If you found a bug in Hopscotch or want to comment on a new update, post in “Bugs”

It’ll take a little while to get the hang of what goes where. Let’s all be patient and help each other get used to the new system :slight_smile: Also, let us know what you think! Post here to share your thoughts.

Liza and THT
