Welcome to the forum! This is a big guide of stuff on the forum! Forum tricks!
[ details=Click me! (Or whatever message you want] Then you type in whatever you want to be hidden until you click on the message after details=! [ /details] Though do not add the space between the [ and whatever is after it .
Tap on the blur
Whatever text you want to be blurry
Again, without the space after the [ .
For the slanted text, you can either put one asterisk (the stars) on both sides of the text, or do < i> text here < /i> without the space after the <.
For the bold text, you can either put two asterisks on each side of the text, or do < b> text here < /b> without the space.
For bold and slanted text, you can either do three asterisks on each side of the text, or do < i> < b> text her < /i> < /b> without the spaces.
Type in [ poll]
Put a dash, then a space
Put the poll option (the text)
Put as many as you want (well there is a limit which is 20 options I believe
You can also make different versions of these, such as doing this: [ poll type=multiple] - You can choose - Multiple answers - Isn't this cool? [ /poll]
[ poll type=number min=you type in a number that you want to be the smallest number choice max=this is the biggest number choice, though there has to be a range less than 21 though I think] [ /poll] You can also do the min max thing with the multiple choice poll.
If you are replying to someone or creating a topic, the is a bar of icons.
The first one, the speech bubble, will only work if you are replying to a topic. When you tap it, it will either quote the entire post of the person you are replying to, or quote the original post if you're just replying to the topic, not any specific reply.
The second one, the B, will put the *s for you (see above about bold text).
The third one, the I, will put the *s for you (see above about slanted text).
The fourth one, the chain, will allow you to put links to other pages on the forum or other websites.
The fifth one, the quotation marks, most likely are similar to the speech bubble but is not currently doing anything for me.
The sixth one, the carrots and the slash, will make it so that you can show how to do code on here without it actually doing anything.
The seventh one, the object and the arrow, will let you put pictures in your post.
The eighth one, the lines and dots, will let you make a list with bullet points.
The ninth one, the lines and numbers, is very similar to the previous one, and will let you make a list only with numbers.
The tenth one, the A, will let you write a heading.
The eleventh one, the dash, will let you put a line to separate parts of your post.
Finally, the twelfth one, the smiley face, will let you put in emojis. This is useful if you don't have access to emojis.
Being kind on the forum
Here are some tips on being kind and supporting on the forum.
The like button is for saying that you agree with the person, supporting it, and saying that you like what they're saying.
The flag button is for flagging something that is offtopic, innapropriate, or spam. If you see a post that you think is one of these, usually the best thing to do is to give them a warning before you flag, unless it really seems like it won't help by giving a warning.
If you see a topic that has been made before, instead of saying search before you post, you can say it in a nicer way such as "I think there might be another topic about this on here. Maybe that might help you?"
Some of them you can bend a little if I said that there is a nicer way to do it.
Here, we mostly just talk about Hopscotch and ask/answer questions. We talk about Hopscotch news and updates, and sometimes we play Hopscotch-related chain games. Some people also host contests on the forum!
You can try playing around in your preferences (accessible from your profile page), to personalize your profile. Then, I'd suggest looking around in Newest (accessible by clicking on the three lines next to your profile picture in the corner) and getting a feel for the forum. Make some mew friends, talk to some old friends, and maybe visit the drawing topic, the music topic, or one of the many help topics spread throughout the forum!
If any of this is hard to understand, or if you need help with what to do, just tag me by posting my username with an @ symbol before it. You can do this to tag any Hopscotcher.
Welcome! I'm Jamie! @ me if you need anything BTW, you should probably change your profile picture. You're not allowed to share your face, as that is considered personal info. Happy Hopscotching! You might want to check this out:
