Lately I’ve seen an increasing number of chat projects on hopscotch, they are really spammy because:
They usually have
no code in them! Sometimes people mention inappropriate things!
Role playing and texting just isn’t coding!
I really don’t like seeing this. Most of the time people ask each other where they are going and questions related to location - and guess what! People always tell the other person!
I think the hopscotch team needs to make a new project about online safety and about sharing things! Then they could send that project to everyone via notifications!
Maybe people will learn a thing or two?!
Waaait how are we at 22 members?? TYSM!!
Agree! You probably already know this, but the best thing you can do as a community member is to just report the projects or email Hopscotch about accounts. I agree with you though, and would definitely like to see more coded projects in the newest tab and hashtag channels.
I’d like everyone to know that I am incapable of that
Yay someone who thinks the same!!
I forgot you said that (whoops), but that also goes out as a general statement to anyone reading the topic, not just you
Yeah I remember making a project some time ago about the same thing.
Did this go in the right category??
I mean, I’d say so – it is a suggestion for the app that isn’t related to the editor. I’m not sure if this needs an entire topic, but it is something that’s important to revisit for a lot of people.
@894 and @Awesome_E! I’ve seen projects that say, ‘Remix to chat with me!’
Omg! That’s terrible!!
I am low on likes just so you guys know
I know right! In my opinion, I wish Hopscotch Leaders had power in the app too – that way they could remove projects like that, or give warnings!
Yeah! That’d be good!
Oooh warnings in hopscotch! There’d be lots of those given out if they were to be introduced!
Some people use it as a social media to talk with others
Yep! ^^ Hopscotch roleplays are a good example of this!
back in my day you can just report the project in the top
Some people make a whole account for this sort of thing! It’s super wrong!
I guess I will try to report the projects that are texting
yes, i agree!
i’ve seen some role playing that people do except it’s coded art and text effects- and i’m all for it! but i really don’t like seeing text-only projects for chats.
I second this
90% of my following tab is people talking to each other through art projects
