I used the videos when I first joined, and I had quite an obsession with coding snowflakes. That was literally all I did for a good three months.
As a new user, I definitely got a lot out of the videos; even if I partly understood what to do already, the video always helped me get the hang of it!
I've been thinking about this for a while, and there's a video I'd really like to see on Hopscotch. It's the code for a bouncing ball! I saw a project like this by Funky63 once, and I remember looking through the code for a long time trying to figure out how to code the ball for a platform-ish game I wanted to make. I finally got it to work after asking for help, but there was always something off about the code that made the ball bounce too low.
Since the code is somewhat complicated but still simple and very versatile, I think a tutorial should be made for it. New users, once learning this code, would be able to use it in a variety of ways to make different types of games and enhance their creations.
So, yeah, long essay, but I really think it would be awesome!
