Community Guidelines

#1

This forum helps you improve your Hopscotching and share what you know to help others.

Here are your guidelines to make this forum somewhere where everyone feels welcomed, supported, and encouraged.

  1. Be nice, always. Pretend that you’re speaking to a friend face-to-face.
  • Use respectful language
  • Assume that others are just as smart as you are.
  • Don’t call people names.
  1. Use only one account, no alts are allowed.

  2. Keep Hopscotch a safe place. Your personal information stays private.

  • Personal information includes last name, email, phone number, where you live, your school.
  • Don’t ask anyone else to share their personal information.
  • Keep conversations on the forum. Don’t share links for others to contact you outside of the forum. This includes Whiteboard, Discord, Hangouts, Padlet, Instagram, and others yet to be invented.
  • Things you can share: your first name, age, and Hopscotch username.
  1. Be generous. It’s awesome to know stuff. Share what you know with others whenever possible. How would you want someone to teach you? Be like that.

  2. Be humble. Even Mark Zuckerberg admits that he’s got more to learn 124. So should we! Ask questions and learn from others. If you disagree with someone, disagree politely.

  3. Keep it clean!

  • Don’t post something you wouldn’t want your grandma to see.
  • If you see inappropriate content, please flag it and it will be removed. Please do not reply to it.
  1. Keep it relevant! Add to the conversation by responding directly to the question posted in the topic, or reply as a linked topic to lead the conversation in a slightly different direction.
  • Don’t use the forum to ask for followers, likes, or other topics that aren’t about using Hopscotch.
  • Posts about leaving are not allowed and will be removed.
  1. All unapproved non-code related topics will be archived.

  2. If you break the community guidelines, your account can be suspended. If your account is suspended three times, you will be permanently banned.

  3. For a more detailed explanation of what you can and can’t post on the forum please click here.

I think posting relevant comments that add to the conversation is important too. It makes it easier to find helpful information.

If people post irrelevant things or things that don't add to the conversation, it makes it harder to find helpful information. If your comment doesn't add meaningfully to the conversation, have a think again about posting it.

If you want to respond to a post but your response isn't directly relevant or goes in another direction, it's probably best to +reply as linked topic

Totally agree! I love that! What do you think of the updated guidelines?

@Liza thank you that's great!

I think the guidelines we follow on Hopscotch can also apply here too!

  • Learn by branching — We can all learn from each other on the forum by adding to and branching off conversations and discussions meaningfully

  • Don't beg for likes — Begging for likes adds unnecessary text which makes it harder to find useful information, and plus people will like your post if they find it helpful anyway!

  • Don't be mean — Everyone wants to come to a community that is kind, helpful and nice!

  • Don't share your personal information — This is not safe to do anywhere online or in public. Don't ask anyone else to share personal details.

  • Take care of the community — Together we can make a community where everyone feels welcome :smile:

  • Keep at it! If everyone tries their very best and follows the guidelines, we'll have a great, safe and happy community!

Another thing is don't make fun of people on the forum on Hopscotch. It would be harder to trace because not all forum usernames are the same as hopscotch ones.

That is very important not to make fun of anyone, and to be considerate of everyone's feelings. Fortunately, users who show any bad behaviour can be found no matter whether or not their forum username is the same as their Hopscotch one.

Hey Liza, I experienced a new bug where I publish something that I want someone else to see, and then they tell me the project was removed even though I didn't even unpublish it! Can you please fix this?

@Ihasfluffycupcakes You should make a new topic for that (or give it a search) Just a reminder from the Community Guidelines which is what this topic is about:

Yeah like you can share your country or/and state, but not your town or county

It's not a bad thing since us kids can not just book a flight and hop on a plane to see that person or do something bad to them or their country.
