Hello! I noticed we have a lot of new forumers, so the following info might be helpful for you all
Hello, and welcome to the forum
I can't post my reply!
The 20 character rule is there to prevent spam. You can bypass it by typing something between arrow brackets, like this:
<This will not be visible to other users>
There will also sometimes be a thing that says it isnt a complete sentence, just type more stuff
if it says you have replied to someone too much, just ignore that message. You can reply, you wont be punished.
As you spend more time on the forum, you gain higher ranks, or trust levels.
Extremely basic trust level info (click me!)Right now, you are a Basic. You can only post a few times a day before you run out. After visiting the forum for a few days, you become a Member, which gives you more likes and access to the #random-stuff category. Eventually, if you are active enough, you become a regular, like me. You gain the ability to create tags, change titles, tags, and move topics to other forums, and you get access to #lounge.
If yiu didnt want to read all that or you want an official guide about this, this is from the creators of Discourse, our forum software. The requirements may be slightly different but you can see the main point.
A great post about our community guidelines can be found here:
Forum Rules (REMINDER/IMPORTANT)
On the Hopscotch Forum, you can format your posts using a combination of techniques, including Markdown, BBcode, and HTML.
This is how you use Markdown, the simplest:
# Header 1 ## Header 2 ### Header 3 *Italics* **Bold**
This yields the result:
Here are the BBcode basic tags:
[b] Bold text [/b] [i] Italic text [/i] [Link text goes here](link url goes here)
I filled in the link tag.
You can find more comprehensive guides online.
HTML is the language websites are made in.
<big>Big text</big> <small>Small text</small> <b>Bold text</b> <i>Italic text</i> <a href=Link url here>Link text here</a>
Link text here
The link tag is filled in.
For more comprehensive guides, just look for “HTML5 tags” on Google or a similar search engine.
