About Forum Leaders

Here you can read more about what leaders are, what they do and how you could become one. If you don’t see an answer to your question, please post in the thread below and we’ll answer it.

Who are the leaders?

The leaders are regulars who have great knowledge of the community and set a positive example through their actions and their posts. Their job is to keep the forum a happy and helpful place.

What will my relationship be with them?

You can ask them questions about anything from forum protocols to Hopscotch code. They’ll also ensure that your topics and posts are relevant and positive. You can always tag them if you notice inappropriate content.

How will the leaders change my experience of the forum?

The leaders will work to make the forum a safer and friendlier place. You will always be able to ask for help. Other than that nothing will really change.

Are the leaders going to speak for Hopscotch now?

The leaders are helping Hopscotch out, but all official announcements will be published in the Announcement category.

How can I become a leader?

  • Be helpful: ask good questions, answer other people’s questions and direct them to other relevant threads

  • Be kind: always be respectful, keep your cool, and treat people like you want to be treated; don’t gossip or talk about other Hopscotchers

  • Make it useful: post on the forum about making stuff on Hopscotch

  • Be mature and responsible

  • Spread positive energy throughout the community. Have fun!

Let’s be patient on that. idk what happened with the second round, but I didn’t make it either ;(
I thought my response was pretty thorough and well-written, but maybe they just needed a little more from us. I’m sure they will reach out again

Probably, but I can’t find an option do so (at least not in the mobile version of the site). I’ll tag @Jazz and @Ana and hope that they can help you.

Sadly, we leaders can’t do that. That power lies in the hands of the wonderful @Ana and the rest of tht.

We can’t change user names or give titles or anything because that’s in your preferences tab and we don’t have access to that since I think has some of your personal info

Thank s for your questions!

  1. We’ll definitely look for more leaders in July - August 2019.
  2. You can ask to change your name once per year (the year starts from the last change).
  3. You can use the tag–leadersf
