Yes also do you have a bad word and bad link filter?
Btw I have a lot of security in my house and digital, but I wont share it (edited)
we do! if you tried to post a bad word - for example, the word “address” is filtered if you try to type it by itself - you would get a message saying you cannot post it. sometimes posts with potentially bad words are also added to a filter, which one of us moderators will check and approve/reject if we see something wrong with it.
our team of moderators is also online to check posts and links for anything that could be harmful - and if we see something, we just delete the post or edit out the inappropriate content.
that’s great for your family! but online safety is about others’ safety as well - if someone were to correspond with you via an external email, and someone else were to find that person’s email… there are a thousand scenarios that could play out, and none of them are very pretty
because we can’t physically or legally check communication out of our domain to make sure it’s safe and kid-friendly, we have to have this blanket rule (no CoF) to prevent people from getting into problems that are out of our control. does that make sense?
Yep I cannot post the word (where you live)
And yes that makes sense
This is always valid! Bump!

It’s alright for THT members to do as they’re an integral part of the forum and Hopscotch community. If there’s changes being made there and there’s a change in team members, it’s perfectly ok for them to make a topic to share that with us. After all, it is their forum for us and they’ve got the right + power to let us know about stuff like that if they want to
Exactly. Couldn’t have said it any better myself.
general topics are basically “you can talk about anything, even not relating to hopscotch” which is why they arent allowed
that was put in place almost 2 years ago and all topics like that are hard to find if they are not deleted
could you link us to a general project topic created this week? any project updates topics (outside of beta-testing) would fit best in our general project updates topic.
as for leaving, fearless has put this situation quite well:
as employees of THT and caretakers of our community, these people have a responsibility to let us know when they come and go. it would be akin to a leader letting the community know that they’ve stepped down or have been recently appointed - these posts help us know who to direct our questions and concerns to!
Yep ^^ CCC said it perfectly
And the GPUT (General Project Updates Topic) is an official topic for all project updates.
However, beta-testing topics are different as they’re topics where people can get help and feedback on currently unreleased projects. These are allowed and are typically unlisted to allow for that privacy:))
If a beta topic turns into an updates topic, a leader will Clive it and portal all update posts to the gput
As for the THT farewell topics, I’ve explained that above, right here
There’s basically a difference between a user saying “I’m Ieaving” and creating a topic centered around that and a THT member saying goodbye to a community that they’ve helped build when they move on to bigger and better things. Same goes for arrival introductions (like Yuanyuan’s) — it’s a way for them to officially introduce new members and the people that’ll be working with us going forward.
They tell us all about that stuff because that means a change in moderation and how things work, which is stuff that’ll impact everyone. It marks a significant change in the community and dynamics, and it’s important for everyone to know about that. Those are official announcements, and can therefore go as topics under the #announcements category for every hop to easily access, whereas a yctayhch post or mss post (like what users will typically do when entering a period of inactivity) can easily get lost and isn’t as accessible.
Hope that helps ^~^
Hi ya’ll what’s up did anything get deleted?
@QuadraticStudios (I think you asked, my b if I tagged the wrong person)
GitHub and GitHub repos are fine to share
bump wow this is old
I guess that make since but you broke that rule
they are a Leader, i guess they have special rules. Theses are only for us, not for THT
The rules apply to everyone, regardless of TL
However, resignation posts are different from leaving posts. I’ve explained this elsewhere, hang on
