I got on the forum because I saw a project about it and thought it would be cool to join ! I likehowyoucanmakea lot of cool fonts and stuff using Markdown (I think that’s what it’s called lol I did a tutorial)
Anyway (that was kinda random) I’ll maybe see u around!
@TNHAFH we need to give this person info about the forum

So first always create hopscotch related topics unless it’s a genral topic which is a topic that you can chat with people or have fun and other stuff
And next always be nice and kind

@trust_level_0: The starting level for everyone! @trust_level_1: You can get this easily! @trust_level_2: Member! Be active for a few weeks and you can get this. You get some more features and some more likes. @trust_level_3: Regular! This is very tough! You need to be on for 50 days within a 100 day timeframe, and read 20k posts! You also need to not be suspended for a certain amount of time, and not have too many flags! @trust_level_4: Only the Hopscotch Team can have this at the time.
Always remember to ask for help when you need it, and have fun!
Oh, also, here are the community guidelines, the rules of the forum!
Welcome @HystericalDonut to the wonderful Hopscotch forum! Here you can make friends, collab, get help with code, and help with other people’s code. I hope you enjoy it here. If you have an HS account please tell me and I’ll check it out.
It's a delight to have new forumers come! To get started, browse through some of the topics that have already been created to see what the forum is all about.
Things to remember about topics
Since you've made this topic, you know how to create a topic -- that's good news! Creating topics gives you the power to ask questions about coding! You can also make clubs and collaborations, and get feedback or help with your projects. There *are* guidelines for making topics, though -- here are the main ones, to set you in the right direction.
Always make topics relating to
If you like to get input on your projects, consider making a topic specifically for that, versus making a new topic each time that you want to get suggestions
SBYP, or search before you post. Sometimes when you have a question, it has already been answered! Try searching through topics by clicking the icon up at the top of the page.
How to be a helpful Hopscotcher
When you are on other people's topics -- whether you are helping them out or simply chatting with others (or even learning from others), remember to always be cordial and kind. Even if someone disagrees with you, be respectful of their opinion, and discuss civilly, not irrationally or heatedly.
Also, remember to keep your discussion on-topic -- if you're in a coding collaboration, remember to only discuss that coding collaboration, not anything else. Same goes for any other topic.
Places to go when you don't have any ideas for what to code
Sometimes, no matter how great a coder you are, you just don't have any ideas of *what* to make! In that case, check out these links.
Rawrbear’s list is an impressively long source of inspiration!
My list is one that anyone can add to – it’s constantly changing.
