Collab account (sort of)

Hi!
I have an account called Hack Me!
It is an account that can be used by anyone!
Like, anyone!
Of course there are rules.
-Don’t use this account to bully
-Don’t use this account to swear or post anything inappropriate

  • Don’t use this account to start hs drama
  • Don’t change the username plz!
  • When you make a project, you have to put your main acc username in the title or in the project.
    The pass is oooooooo
    Good luck!

Interesting. You should change the name from hack me though.

COSES did something similar to this.

Kinda disappointed that I wasn’t the first one to come up with the idea

Search them on the app. Their username won’t show up, but they made a project called COSES, so you can go to their acc.

Really cool Hopscotcher - it’s a shame they stopped making projects.

Oh yeah, I remember them from last year. Yeah, they made a lot of really great projects.

@kathyh I’m really hoping you’re going to moderate this collab carefully? It can be quite risky doing this, as literally anyone can anonymously log in and wreak havoc on there.

Yeah, I agree. It’s hard to manage something like this.

Ah. I was going to say, if this was your main, then you’re crazier than I thought.

Hey! This sounds like a cool idea but it could be really hard to moderate, so just make sure you stay on top of that.
Also, is there are real purpose to this collab? Will you actively be coding projects together and working ocm collaborative stuff? If not, then I’d suggest you maybe reconsider the point of this topic – the collab acc is less a collab acc and more of a shared community acc, and the topic doesn’t have much purpose if you’re not working on projects together. It could just go in the yctayhch then

Hi! Having such an open account exposes a real risk. A few reasons:

  • Anyone can log on (including hackers) and delete all your progress
  • Anyone can log on and post inappropriate stuff
  • Since it is open, people may start “communicating” with each other, which also can be dangerous.

If you want to have an open account, make sure that you moderate it well. Don’t use your personal account and save progress every time you logged out.

You also might want to consider this.

I understand the idea, I just want to make sure you and others stay safe! :wink:

(had a draft for this written yesterday, but realized that I forgot to post it)
