Hope you’re having an awesome week.
I’ve recently got some question on using Docs, like “is it okay to use Docs with my Hopscotch email?”
It is not okay to give out any kind of information that allows someone to talk to you outside of the forum, including an email that uses your Hopscotch name. For example, I couldn’t share that my email is “firstname.lastname@example.org” here (don’t worry, this doesn’t exist).
This is super important and here’s why:
- Anyone can join this forum and anyone could find your email adddress listed there and send you messages. We can’t moderate outside of the forum, and these messages could be inappropriate or dangerous.
- If you talk with people on Docs, the same is true. Anyone on the Doc can say something inappropriate or dangerous and there is no moderation to stop or follow up with them.
This is why we have a forum—so that you have a place you can talk to other Hopscotchers about Hopscotch stuff safely.
We can change and improve the forum so that it’s more useful to you, but we need to know what you think should be different. If there are things you want to do on Docs and can’t do here (like share the password to a collab account), let me know and I will see how we can make the forum better.
This goes for all members of the forum. If you see someone share their email, please flag the post! We will delete the post immediately. Questions on what's okay and what's not? Ask here or read our community guidelines: http://forum.gethopscotch.com/t/community-guidelines/16
Thanks so much for helping us keep the forum safe and awesome for everyone!
