Just to clarify, I mean for older members of the Hopscotch Forum. Ones who know better.
Anyway, this whole thing isn’t about CoF/CoA, so keep that in mind.
Honestly it isn’t. I won’t argue with you about it since I already know it is common, and as technology progresses this problem only gets worse.
I want to say in the most respectful way possible that these contact information rules have no benefit for HS and will remove the status of a friendly and light-hearted community. There are no other platforms commonly used for kids where you can say how to contact yoyu outside of HS. That’s for a good reason. “Oh well you can post discord links on Roblox!” Roblox is a heavily moderated and large platform, you also can’t just post links AT ALL in chat. This would completely ruin HS and I will not argue, because I don’t want anyone to get mad, but I really really think that this would put so many kids in trouble. Thanks for reading!
Also I already addressed the category issue many many times, and so have others, so I don’t want to type it again. I just want to say that I think a bio would be awesome lol
About the CoA part. I wasn’t trying to express that CoA should be allowed on the app, but I just wanted THT to come forward and make it clear on whether it’s allowed or not.
Well it’s not, why would it be different than on the forum?
Because it’s not stated as well as it is on the forum.
There’s no rules section on Hopscotch. Obviously, I make sure to play it safe (not 100% if it’s allowed; it probably isn’t) so I don’t post that stuff in the app.
you can still flag for sharing PI, which is close enough
And about the CoF thing.
I’m not saying it should be implemented exactly how I said it should be. I’m merely saying that older users who know better should have a way to contact each other. That’s why I suggested the leader permission thing.
You don’t have to agree, it’s just something I had in mind. I don’t expect everything to be addressed, but I don’t see a very bright future for HS if nothing is addressed.
People can easily pretend like they’re older so that doesn’t work out.
Not just older, but also mature.
You have a point though, although I don’t see how someone could fake knowing internet safety besides saying “I know, I know.”
Is there a neutral selection? I say neutral.
I didn’t put one because I thought it was a fairly straightforward question, although what’s your opinion?
I think that in some cases it might be good, and some cases bad. But if there is a “little disagree” then I would go for that.
1 = Totally Disagree
10 = Neutral
20 = Totally Agree
But how do you think this “maturity” can be measured? Children are really good at pretending to be adults and older children. Also why would THT go through all of this trouble, just to possibly get in legal trouble? Tons of trouble all around
@StarlightStudios, @000 made a really good post about how it’d be practically impossible for THT to get in legal trouble
parental approval to communicate with people unmoderated—although that’s a whole lot of trouble for this
Maybe you’d have to get your parents to sign something too (some kind of consent form I suppose), unless you could confirm you’re over 18/16? I feel like that would be a bit over the top, but again: better than nothing.
Very good point, obviously I didn’t see that. But why risk it at all? Like seriously why would THT actually want to take any risk at all. Also what if THT just simply cares about children being safe? I bet their TOS prevents them from getting in any legal trouble for any situation but THT cares about kids having a safe environment, why would they willingly, go out of there way to let children get scammed and other bad things (can’t really say) happen to them.
they do, they wouldn’t create an app with rules about PI and CoF if they didn’t.
