Here’s an official topic of the Hopscotch Forum guidelines:

Hello! I’m @Jojo, just to clear any confusion, I have an alternative account called @JojoDude. Welcome to the Forum, here’s a breakdown of the main stuff you want to know:

What is Hopscotch?

Hopscotch is a programming language developed by Hopscotch Technologies (THT), designed to allow beginner programmers to code simple projects like games and art! It’s simple and allows its users to drag and drop blocks to create code that can be played when the “play” button is pressed. It is called Hopscotch, because like the street game, you have to make it before you can play it!

You can code games, art and share them with your friends, family and the WHOLE Hopscotch community! You can even play other people’s projects to see what they made! It’s a great way to start learning to code some pretty great things and I can’t wait to see what you make!

I’m sure you already knew most of this from your school experiences.

Hopscotch Forum Language:

Bot: System
Chakin: Chicken
Gices: Gives
Fren: Friend
Frenpai = senpai and fren combined
Senpai= Inspiration/Person you look up to
Smol: Small
HF=Hopscotch Forum
THT= The Hopscotch Team
Thicks: Thank you
Hopscotchify: To hopscotchify is to make something that already exists in Hopscotch. For example, a game or some pixel art
Nip: No problem
And we like to use xD a lot

Trust Levels on The Hopscotch Forum:

@trust_level_0: The rank that you start with (what you have now)
@trust_level_1: Basic, it takes less than a day to achieve and you’ll get it in no time.
@trust_level_2: Member! Be active for a few days-weeks and you should be able to achieve this rank. You get some more replies and some more likes because liking other people’s posts is fun!
@trust_level_3: Regular! You need to be on for 50 days in less than 100 days, and read 20000 posts! Regular goes to good people who don’t get into arguments so try not to get involved if someone else gets into one, you could get flagged or suspended which will lower your chances of getting regular.
@trust_level_4: Only the Hopscotch Team can get this! It gives them moderation privledges so they can look after everyone.

Help!

There are a lot of places where you can get help from! Try checking out other new people’s topics, there could be some helpful info on there! You can also try looking at topics teaching you new things, like my topic:

You can also tag a whole bunch of people by using the Official Mass Tag List… or the OMTL for short.

To use the OMTL, tag as you normally would with an “@“ and then write OMTL.

Add yourself to it if you like but don’t abuse it or people will get really mad!

Tag me if you ever need any help!

Just tag me by putting “@” before my name “Jojo” (like this: @Jojo) and I’ll get a Notification saying that you need my help! I’ll come over as soon as possible to help you!

Epilogue:

Well, that’s all! Thanks for reading everything! Good luck and I hope you have a great time on the Forum and using Hopscotch.
