Hi! I made this topic because a lot of people have been getting upset because of flags and wanting regular. I just wanted to remind everyone that flags and regular don't matter :)
Okay, so what did you do last time you got a flag? Did you get upset? Did you make a whole new topic just asking why your post was flagged? Or did you just accept it and move on? That's what I do every time. I just look at the notification, think about why it was flagged, and forget about it. It's just a flag on a website, it's not important. Even if someone flags you for no reason. It's still just a website. I know unnecessary flagging is bad, and it does have to stop, but it's not the end of the world if and when it happens ;)
Regular is the same. It's just a website for talking about code and Hop, not where you gain popularity and reach your ultimate life goal of getting regular. When I got regular, I just thought, "Oh cool, new trust level!" And I did not make a topic for it, or get upset thinking I'm gonna lose regular every time I got a flag.
This website is about Hopscotch, not ranks. If you get regular, or already have it, cool. If you make a new Hopscotch project or learn a new coding language, AWESOME!!!! :D
Now I've said all that I wanted to say, except for one more thing: Don't make a topic asking what to do to get regular, asking why you don't have it, asking why you lost it, or announcing that you got it. These topics are unrelated to Hopscotch, which is what the forum is about. And don't say, "it's related to the forum" either because this is the Hopscotch forum. So technically, anything that's not related to Hopscotch, also isn't related to the forum. (Unless it's a topic like this or something, it doesn't need to be made) ;)
Thanks for reading! Sorry if I offended anyone, this topic wasn't intended to :)
