#CommunityCares: Accept Identity Forum Competition! [OFFICIAL]

Heya Hops!

We’re here today with something a little bit different, so be sure to read this entire post!
Going forward, we wanna integrate the official app challenges into the forum more, so we’re gonna be holding concurrent forum challenges but on a much larger scale than ever before.

Today, we’re introducing a brand new challenge sponsored by the #CampCourtesy Kindness Cabin. In honor of the upcoming start to Pride Month, this challenge is centered around identity and fully embracing who you are.
As you may know, Pride Month is a time to celebrate LGBTQIA+ genders and orientations that don’t conform to the typical social binaries. This year, it also marks an anniversary of the recent social justice movement; a movement centered around equality.

At Hopscotch, we embrace these ideals and we’re expanding off of the base ideas of acceptance, equality and showing kindness to everyone. For this entire week, we’re going to be having a series of rapid-fire forum challenges.

Below, you can see a list of 3 specific challenges for each day. You must do the day’s prompts that day, and in order for it to count. Tag me (@FearlessPhoenix) in every post in which you complete a challenge so that we can keep track of everything. Always remember to be safe and to never overshare personal info. try to keep it as generally specific as possible.

Thanks to the CampCourtesy sponsorship, each challenge prompt is worth a certain undisclosed number of CourtesyCoins. When you complete a challenge, the CourtesyCoins youve earnt get tallied up. At the end of this competition, each cabin you’re in will earn the CourtesyCoins.

The top 3 people with the highest overall CourtesyCoin earnings from this challenge will also be receiving additional prizes like any other Hopscotch Competition, including the possibility of real seeds. In addition to this, we’ll also have some special prizes for other participants, so stay tuned and participate as much as possible!!

One prize is HopBytes, and yall know what HopByte prizes mean… a limited-time HopByte store offer!

Pop-Up Hopbyte Shop (Limited Time Availability) Hopbytes
Custom Emoji Title 200 HopBytes
Pride Emoji Titles (:heart:/:orange_heart:/:yellow_heart:/:green_heart:/:blue_heart:/:purple_heart:/:rainbow_flag:/:transgender_flag:/:rainbow: 90 HopBytes (each)
Coded Request from Fearless 60 HopBytes
[Something from another host] 60 HopBytes
MSS long post Shoutout 35 HopBytes
Spamlikes from a host of your choosing 25 HopBytes
Spamlikes from a random host 17 HopBytes

That’s a lot, but it’s still not all we’ve got to offer! In honor of the spirit of Kindness and acceptance, for the first time ever, you can buy prizes for other Hopscotchers through the duration of the competition.

With that being said, winnable prize values and specifics will remain undisclosed until the competition finishes to ensure that prizes aren’t a driving factor for participation in such a meaningful and deeply personal competition. They are well worth it tho.

We hope you guys enjoy this and like the new format we’re trying out. Feel free to leave feedback for us, as well as tagging us for any questions/comments/concerns you may have.

The limited time offer is a really good deal. Unfortunately, the HopBytes leaderboard hasn’t been updated since March 17, so I still only have 18 HBs. If it was, I would have 53 HBs total (I earned 35 from the Patrick’s Day Comp Challenges).

Acronym “HBs” = HopBytes

Does the project need to be completed or can I send a link to an unfinished version (that still has the requirements)?

I want to participate because I haven’t really done any of the other challenges, and this one seemed interesting. I want to have fun and see what other people find interesting and important to them. I’m excited for the passions and culture ones.

I’ll try to do as many as possible, but I might not finish the coding project in time.

I feel that there are many social issues that we can work together as a whole to fix, both online and in real life. Together by addressing these issues I can hope we can make hopscotch and the people in it more aware of these issues, and hopefully get closer to fixing them.
I hope to be able to understand my friends on here better, so I can treat them with the respect they deserve.
I’m rather excited for Tuesday’s challenge, as I love my passions and I’d be happy to share them with you.

I’m planning to do each challenge, and as many of the challenges I can do. So far I’ve managed to collect two more pfps for the challenge, and I’m working on setting some time aside on Tuesday, Friday and the weekend to code some projects for the challenges.
