Since you haven’t changed it in the last year, just let me know what new username you would like (keep in mind that once the change is done, you will have to wait a whole year until requesting another name change)

Hello leaders! I have 2 questions. Can you help me by assisting in my club and how could I enter this year’s or next year’s seed program?

If youre talking about seed devoloper programs, i’m pretty sure those don’t exist anymore- now to get the seed block you have to get the subscription.

Unfortunately there are no planned seed programs and they will likely not happen again. But to get the seed block you can buy Hopscotch Pro :))

What’s detrius and randomness? Is it the pit of doom that stores all the deleted content?

More or less, yes.

Well, why would they add it? What if a person posted their information and it lands in that pit? Can that be viewed?

3 Likes

It’s because leaders don’t have the ability to directly delete posts. Any posts that end up there are not publicly visible (hence the name of the topic)

We can see it. Anyone that is not a leader or higher can’t.

What if a person posted their information and it lands in the pit? There is no way they can delete that now. It could be a major issue

As leaders we must agree not to do anything with the data. It’s part of the trust entitlement that we’re given. Moderators, like those from any other company, also have to sign a contract saying that won’t do that, so there are serious consequences for us if we do anything with it.

Additionally, that’s also why it’s good to practice online safety – more likely than not, what you post on a site (not just ours) is stored permanently

So you’ll get Arrested?

Probably not that serious, but there are potential legal consequences. Basically if we’re found to have and do something with that information we’re considered liable. I don’t know the exact details, but it’s not that simple either; different companies can handle it differently.

I can’t really provide any more info (I don’t know much more about these things), but if you’re interested in non-disclosure agreements and what they do, you can search up what an “NDA” is and read more about that.
