Idea to combat HS ‘social media’

#1

@Leaders, @Ana, @awesomeonion and @Rodrigo Recently I have become interested in the fact that the HS app being used as a social media platform. And I wanted to do something about it, since Hopscotch is meant to be used for coding, not chatting. So I had an idea. It is a very simple idea, but it could make THT job easier.
First, you would click on report as usual.


Then, this would come up.

And if it was chatting or an RP, you could report it for that reason.
Please reply telling me what you think of my idea

Hey this is good, but if people are having problems with getting on here, or for collabs etc they should be allowed, so maybe put non code related chat and rp’s?

Lol, I think at least 50% projects would get taken down.

also one more thing:

the leads are only for the forum, on HS they are normal users like the rest of us. Maybe tag THT instead? Tag: @Ana, @awesomeonion and maybe @Rodrigo?

That would be a lot of reporting, maybe something less direct in a way?
People could talk about code!
And what happens if you code the RPs?

Good idea, but RPS are chats are decreasing and it may encourage them, as users may realize it’s possible to do them. But probably not

This is a genius idea! I know people enjoy role playing and all, but it would be a lot easier to find coded projects, plus their are other apps people can do role plays, so why do it on hopscotch?
