First of all, thank you so much for your warm welcome!! I am so happy to see so many talented kids engaging here and I look forward to getting to know you all better.
You might have noticed that we have started to move and close some general topics so I thought it would be fair to share our reasons with you.
As you know the Hopscotch forum was created as a support platform where kids can discuss game development and help each other.
The many general topics clog up the forum making it more difficult for newcomers to find useful information.
I’ve also noticed that there are people who behave badly in general topics–being rude, negative, and really not making the forum the friendly welcoming place that we all would like it to be.
Here are some guidelines:
All general topics (GTs) need to be under the Random Stuff category.
If your GT turns into an unfriendly place, don’t be surprised if it gets closed.
If people are posting nasty things in your topic (or anywhere else) flag them to have them reviewed.
If you behave badly, you can expect your general topics to be closed, and if you continue, to lose your access to the forum.
I’m going to update the general forum guidelines as well so new people will know the rules in the future too.
I hope this will make the forum a nicer place for everyone!
