Someone who new people would end up following when they joined, so they had cool projects to see in their Following tab.

I think it was mainly Featured people.

I was one too I think :0

An auto-follow is someone who was automatically followed when you join Hopscotch.

They got rid of auto-follows a while back

An auto-follow is someone THT thinks are a good role model on Hopscotch. When you join Hopscotch, you automatically follow those people, so your following tab is full of ama-zhang projects. They had to get rid of it, because it overwhelmed the servers.

If someone just joined, or doesn't follow anybody, THT would put inspirational Hopscotcher's projects in your following tab. That was known as "Auto follow", which meant automatically following somebody.:slight_smile:

An auto follow was a user that THT chose to be auto followed whenever someone ne wjoined, to show them cool users. They got rid of them a while ago, but here's a list of the ex auto follows.
