Hi everybody I am new to the forum!


#1

Hello everybody! I am new to the forum! I am background inc. on hopscotch and can some people give me tips to get started? That would be really helpful!
Sorry I put this in help with code it's just that I didn't know what else to put it in.


#2

No prob! Let's see..
Tag me by putting an @ symbol before my name, like this. @braybraylovesmonkeys. Then I will come and help you.
You already know how to make topics.
You can post photos and videos by clicking the little tv looking thing with an arrow coming out of it.
Here's a link for a topic I made on cool text/post tricks!


#3

Hello!

Like this— @DECODECO
I hope you have fun!

Remember to be nice, on-topic, and keep personal info private. ;3

Tag me anytime if you need help!

Hi, I'm @Jojo! Welcome to the Forum, here's a breakdown of the main stuff you want to know:

What is Hopscotch?

Hopscotch is a programming language developed by Hopscotch Technologies (THT), designed to allow beginner programmers to code simple projects like games and art! It's simple and allows its users to drag and drop blocks to create code that can be played when the "play" button is pressed. It is called Hopscotch, because like the street game, you have to make it before you can play it!

You can code games, art and share them with your friends, family and the WHOLE Hopscotch community! You can even play other people's projects to see what they made! It's a great way to start learning to code some pretty great things and I can't wait to see what you make!

Hopscotch Forum Language:

Bot: System
Chakin: Chicken
Gices: Gives
Fren: Friend
Frenpai = senpai and fren combined
Smol: Small
HF=Hopscotch Forum
THT= The Hopscotch Team
Thicks: Thank you
Hopscotchify: To hopscotchify is to make something in Hopscotch. For example, a game or some pixel art
Nip: No problem
And we like to use xD a lot

Trust Levels on The Hopscotch Forum:

@trust_level_0: The rank that you start with
@trust_level_1: Basic, it takes less than a day to achieve and you've probably got it already!
@trust_level_2: Member! Be active for a few days-weeks and you should be able to achieve this rank. You get some more replies and some more likes because liking other people's posts is fun!
@trust_level_3: Regular! You need to be on for 50 days in less than 100 days, and read 20000 posts! Regular goes to good people who don't get into arguments so try not to get involved if someone else gets into one, you could get flagged or suspended which will lower your chances of getting regular.
@trust_level_4: Only the Hopscotch Team can get this! Something happened and cut a long story short, the old Leaders aren't leaders anymore and no one can get it.

Help!

There are a lot of places where you can get help from! Try checking out other new people's topics, there could be some helpful info on there! You can also try looking at topics teaching you new things, like my topic:

You can also tag a whole bunch of people by using the Official Mass Tag List... or the OMTL for short:

Add yourself to it if you like but don't abuse it or people will get really mad xD

Tag me if you ever need any help!

Just tag me by putting "@" before my name "Jojo" (like this: @Jojo) and I'll get a Notification saying that you need my help! I'll come over as soon as possible to help you!

Well, that's all! Thanks for reading everything! Good luck and I hope you have a great time on the Forum and using Hopscotch, bye bye!

Welcome to the forum! ^^

Here are a few topics you could go to! :)

By the way, check your messages! You'll see one from a Hopscotch team staff member named Liza that will help you here! ^^

Also, here's a guide made by seawolfwerehorse!


Welcome to the forum! This is a big guide of stuff on the forum!

Forum tricks!

Click me!

[ 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 :wink:.

Tap on the blur :point_down:


`Type in
[ spoiler]
Whatever text you want to be blurry
[ /spoiler]`
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.

Polls!
  • Type in [ poll]
  • Press enter/return
  • 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
  • Close it with [ /poll]
  • Like this:
  • [ poll]
  • - option
  • [ /poll]

0voters

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.

How to use the forum

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?"

Rules

Some of them you can bend a little if I said that there is a nicer way to do it.





Some tips

When posting, it's good to:

  • Be clear and precise about what you are saying.

  • Make sure that it doesn't go against community guidelines.

  • Read your post before posting.

I hope this helped at least a little bit!


I hope you enjoy your time here on the forum :)
