Hey, so I have a question. Say I’ve made song that I want to share with people here. Now, normally, I would just post it as an unlisted YouTube video and post it here. But, with the new guidelines, how am I supposed to show it to others? Music is related to creativity, after all.


#3

Thanks for specifying!

Are pet photos allowed? (Without any stuff in them, specified in the first post, of course)


#4

I am not sure, but if you unlist the video and turn off comments, it might be allowed. But do not share it until you get official approval by either @Ana, @Jazz or someone else that can make those decisions as I am not completely sure about this.


#5

The forum is designated to support the Hopscotch app and coding related content. While music is creative, it wouldn’t qualify as applicable content unless you have coded a music project and include the link.

Any personal website is restricted, regardless of whether comments are turned on or off.

I hope this helps clarify?


#6

Alright.


#7

As long as your cat isn’t a notable public figure :wink:, it should be fine. Just be sure that any photos posted have any potential personally identifying information scrubbed.


#9

No PewDiePie links


#10

Ok. Thanks for that! This is really helpful. If my indistinguishable porch is in a pic can it get removed?


#11

Would we still be able to share what continent and/or country?


#12

Yes…it can get removed. Why? Because it can technically be google searched.

(Sorry, @TheDeliciousOrange, my first answer to your question was unclear.)


#13

how about instead the hs team revamps the whole music system there bc i swear its impossibler to make music than art when theres only one instrument in there and theres like legit no way of making the sound effects shorter (aka for making decent percussion noises) or the dreaded lag thats always there making songs sound off all the time, or the fact that the notes you can play in the first place are more limited than when the default colors were the only thing available in hs app lol.

i could go on for a while but seriously, they gotta get that music scene up, and at the very least so that u can play the already set up stuff without anything added without much trouble.


#14

Continent, country and even state aren’t identifiable enough, generally. City wouldn’t be allowed.


#15

Sounds like a great idea! Go ahead and post this in meta-Hopscotch to share your idea.


#16

you mean like make a topic about it?


#17

id be pretty rare to live in a micronation tho lol,

oof tho theres gonna be like one that does.


#18

If you search and cannot find another app suggestion that matches your idea, then, yes.


#19

i feel like literally no one in here cares about music in hs app at all lol.

i wonder what it wouldve been like if music and art interest were switched around with all the artists here and in the forum lol.

ill make a topic soon about it.


#20

Are links to professional buisiness websites/YouTube channels that I have happened to create allowed? Is it ok if they contain some personal information in them?


#21

No, due to the likelihood of contact outside the forum.
