Welcome to the Forum @DotMatilda

This is the place where you ask or teach others how or what to code!
You might be thinking, "How did you get that profile picture?".

Firstly, see that letter D on the top right corner of your page? Thats where you get notified on the stuff of people who mentioned you.

Click that and a menu will pop up. Click your name, and you are at you activities page.

Then tap Preferences, thats the settings menu.

Over there, find and tap the pencil beside the letter D with some text saying "Profile Picture".

You can import a picture to be used as your profile picture!

There are many many other tricks in the forum!

You never know you might stumble into one!

To make a common poll in your posts, type in:

[poll]
- whatever you want to put here
- same here
[/poll]

The limit of the number of choices is 20.

To make a Filed text like this,

Click to open

You just opened the file!

 [details=Name of the Folder]
 what ever you want to type
 [/details]

To make a blurred text like this,

(click it to unblur the text)
Welcome to the Forum!

[spoiler] Whatever you want to type [/spoiler]

And the text i used to make that unicode text?

Put 4 spaces in front of the sentence!

Isn't it cool?

Welcome to the Forums!

Welcome to the forum! :D @DotMatilda
A topic is what you just made now! It can be about a collab, a project, or a question! Anything that's hopscotch related!
You can answer other people's questions, join Collabs, make friends and more! Have fun.
Need help? Use @smishsmash and I'll try to help!

By the way, what you created is called a "Topic". It can be used in many ways!

What do you mean by "it can be used in many different ways?"

Welcome to the forum, @DotMatilda!
This is a really great place to share what you're working on on Hopscotch, post "whoa" moments (like, say, @PopTart0219 likes your project), and join collab projects!
TIP: If you want to change your profile pic, here's how:
1) Go to your profile
2) Click "preferences"
3) Scroll until you see "Profile Picture"
4) Choose a fun picture from your photo library (like my kawaii sapphire)
5) Upload your picture!
6) TA-DAAAAA!

Welcome to the forum @DotMatilda! Adding to the stuff above, you can also create topics announcing your new project, but just be sure not to do that too often or else it will become annoying. Be sure to search the forum using the bluish magnifying glass on the top right before you create a new topic though. That's to prevent the forum being cluttered by ten people all asking the same thing, and to prevent the same people answering a question ten times. :smile:

Welcome. Now i'm gonna describe the community. Some are helpful. but sometimes I see:

  • Mad BOT wars
  • 'political' topics that are mostly hating on donald trump
  • LGBT VS RELIGIONS THAT HATE IT
  • A very very very troubled kid
  • off topic stuff

So kid...I reccomend that...YOU EMAIL THE HOPSCOTCH TEAM FOR EVERY TROUBLE.
