"Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Taken"- Oscar Wilde

I agree completely! This is true on Hopscotch as well! Just look at how many imposters there are!


You may want to attempt to be a famous Hopscotcher for likes. But why?
If you are a good coder, you'll get likes anyway (there are loads of topics) and people will follow you for who you are. People may stumble upon you looking for the real coder, but they'd rather you were yourself, not hidden under a famous name. Great topic
It doesn't matter if you have the same name as a famous Hopscotcher like MagmaPOP, you're not going to magically turn into an awesome coder and get trendings, and features. It takes time, everyone makes mistakes, we're not machines. Everyone needs trial and error to get it exactly right. All the games on featured didn't make the game creators one try. It could've taken dozens. Just be yourself, grow and learn.
People are also hiding under names on the Forum as well (take the whole @FoodDelivery2.0 argument). But that's also pointless. On the Forum, people will like you of you are kind, caring, chatty and always yourself.
So, don't hide, be visible as who you are!

Well said! I agree completely.
Why would people pretend to be a famous Hppscotcher for popularity, when they would be better off with their own name?
It doesn't matter what your name is, because you will be just as good of a coder even if you use your own name.

Well didn't I just write a whole paragraph there.

Yes, often we need reminders of this. It's not good to be an imposter; just switch your name and code creatively and you'll be sure to get as many likes as the famous person you were trying to copy in the first place.

Haha, I'm actually glad I'm not famous enough to have any imposters.

Sorry, @FoodDelivery and @DinoProductions, I read a topic where you said that it was an imposter, sorry, I probably misread it!
