A Beginner's Guide to the Hopscotch Forum

hopscotch

#1

Hai guyz I know there's already a topic for this but it didn't really explain much so I thought i'd make another one...P.S This is a complete draft in progress so yah... please don't steal >-<


I AM STILL WRITING BTW


First off, what the forum is for:

The Hopscotch forum was created for a number of reasons. Basically on this website, you can talk to other Hopscotchers, ask questions, and discuss things with other people who love to code as much as you.


Rules:

There are of course, rules in the Hopscotch forum. These are to keep us safe, and if a user breaks these rules, that user could have their account suspended. ( see below )
I'm just going to list a few basic rules, so if you want to see the rest of them just click here: http://forum.gethopscotch.com/t/community-guidelines/16

  • Be kind. Don't call people names, pretend that you're speaking with them in real life, and don't say anything your mother ( or grandmother ) wouldn't like you saying. :wink:

  • Try to keep topics and posts related to Hopscotch ~ After all, the Hopscotch forum is about Hopscotch... If you must post something, try to make a folder and call it 'Off topic stuff'. I understand if you can't make it related to Hopscotch, cuz we have all been there, but at least try to :blush:

  • Don't share personal information. I can't say this enough! It's okay to share your first name and even maybe your age, ( ask a parent first ) but don't tell anyone your last name, where you live, your / your parents phone numbers, passwords, etc.
    ( there's a bunch of other stuff but i'm too lazy α••( ᐛ )α•— )


Basic things you should know about the forum:

-Forum slang ~ I don't know much about this and I don't want to explain it incorrectly or give you guys the wrong idea so here are a few topics regarding the idea of forum slang:

~ http://forum.gethopscotch.com/t/hopscotch-slang-words/18679

-Forum Tricks ~ I won't explain this for now so here's a link that you should click:
http://forum.gethopscotch.com/t/cool-forum-tricks-more-wink

~Emoticons / Characters / whatever
Here's just a very basic rundown:
α••( ᐛ )α•— ~ This is Gary. HE IS TAKING OVER THE WORLD RUN
;-; ~ This is basically the :joy: emoji...
(*-** ) ~ ( I think I made this up...idk honestly ) Basically this emoji: :flushed:
a bunch of other things. I'm lazy so here's a link to a project that explains more faces:

~Ranks: ( Scroll down )

~and more stuff I'll write later

Suspension:
A user can have their account suspended for a certain amount of days, months, or even years.
This means that they can't access the Hopscotch forum from that IP address and / or device.
( so that they can't create another account ). You can be suspended for a number of reasons, but mostly because you broke the rules / community guidelines ( see above ).
If you are suspended even once, you sadly cannot become a regular :disappointed:.


All about ranks:
In the Hopscotch forum, there are 5 different ranks.
( You have to do a certain number of things to get one )

-Moderator ~ They are also handpicked, they get a little sheild / badge next to their name, they can suspend users, and there are only 4-5 so far. ( don't know much about them...)

-Leader ~ OHMGEEE! So basically these lucky ducks get to close topics, create topics without a category, edit all posts, split and merge topics, have their daily likes increased by 3 X, and a bunch of other awesome stuff. ( These peeps are handpicked by THT so you can't really do stuff to get it )

-Regular ~ You have been on for a long time ( at least 1 and a half months ), and now you're an official helper around the forum! You can now recategorize and rename topics, create tags, change names of topics, have your daily like limit increased by 2 x, and you get access to THE SECRET LOUNGE!!! ( topic limited to peeps who are Regulars or higher where you can chat and stuff )

-Member, ~ You're officially a member! cool things you get are: Daily like limit increased by 1.5 x, invite users to a topic, etc.

-Basic ~ You've been on enough and read enough posts that THT knows you're not an evil robot! ( like @system )
You have some new abilities, now off to being a member!

-New user ~ This isn't really a rank, but I thought I would mention it anyway. You've just joined, and you need to be on for a bit more and read more posts so that you can become a basic. You have limited replies on your 1st day so use them wisely!

I didn't explain it very well so if you want a more detailed thingy click dis: https://meta.discourse.org/t/what-do-user-trust-levels-do/4924/3

If you wish me to add / want to suggest something just leave a thingy below :blush: P.S Thanx to @BellaWafflez17 for helping me :D
