so ive been seeing some people saying their hopscotch emails which is greats but what if soeone uses it as their email to reset a password for...everything!
then a hacker could see the username and go on the forum, search who made a account with that username, and search their hopscotch email and type it in on hopscotch and change the password!
that's a BIG safety problem so I suggest that the hopscotch team makes a thing where whne you make a account, you have to put in some personal questions and then, when you jogin <(I'm joggin' in)
, you have to answer those questions!
I think that'll make it safer as long as we make a firewall for it.

Umm...

1) usually people don't use Hopscotch emails for that
2) it doesn't work like that...there's an email sent TO THE PERSON and it's reset through that

NOT DA POINT

Seriously.

Uhhhhhh jogin?
It should say login

The best use of a hopscotch email isn't for your account, but for a collab, or asking questions. It probably isn't a good idea to use it for your account, and I would definitely not share your password


#9

lol I was typing to fast /O\


#10

The person using it to reset doesn't have the password to the email so they can't reset it.

#12

#13

#16

I know, but some people might not get it.


#17

whispers to friend: he gets it too?!?!?!?


#18

Good idea, but there's an email sent to the email to reset the password through that.
Also it should say login not jogin.
Are you going to jog or somethin'?
Also why would someone share their password?
