Must Read for New Users!


#1

Hi guys!
It has been quite a while since I have really made a new topic, however, I wanted to give all of the new users that have recently joined a place to go for some interesting articles and announcements you should read about both Hopscotch and the Forum! Some of these are my posts that I think are really helpful for new people, but others are other peoples posts that I think are really awesomely explained (I will tag you!) and others are THT announcements! Some are even topics other people recommend!

Be sure to scroll down below to check out my newest addition: TIPS! These are my tips from my beginning on the forum that may help you!

My posts (@Swati_Bang) that I think are helpful!

Note: Read some of the replies to all of these topics! (Especially this last one: most of the good advice is in the comments!!) They can be really helpful and have quality beginners advice!


I have decided to add a new segment to this topic: New Forumer Tips!
I was just recently a new forumer, and I thought some of the lessons I learned would be beneficial to some of you!

1) Start off Easy!
Any of you that have been reading my topics from the beginning know that I did this. I made SO many topics when I first started. So many, that THT had to put my topic on hold for almost a week. All of my topics were good, but my tip would be to ease into it. Maybe make an into topic, but start off by replying and liking. Then once the forum gets used to you, start making some topics to benefit the forum!

2) Follow the Community Guidelines
This is an easy one, but still very important. Life on the forum is fun, easy, and a learning experience when you folllow the rules. Just keep yourself safe, and the other forumers! If you see any sketchy activity, report it! We need your help in keeping our community safe and protected!

3) Do not get Discouraged!
I do not have personal experience with this, but I have seen it so often. So many new forumers will make topics such as drawing topics and more, and half of their comments will be SBYP. This make sense, and helps declutter the forum, but I have seen it can discourage so many forumers. Sometimes all of their topics have SBYP in the comments section.
DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED! Just try and make topics that relate to current forum news!

4) Do not feel Obligated!
Don’t feel obligated that you have to make a informational topic that helps people. YOU DON’T! You can always just stick to asking questions, asking people to help you with code, and checking out other topics! If you want to be involved, try helping someone with tricky code or figure out a bug!
Do you have any more tips? PLEASE comment them down below and tag me! I would love to hear them!

Also, do you want any more segments added to this topic? Comment your ideas down below! It would be awesome if one of your creative ideas gets added to this topic, which is linked to many newer forumers! Many new forumers introduce themselves daily, so please link this topic in order to welcome them! It will put their minds at ease as well as be super super super super helpful!!!

Thank you to everyone who shared my topic already! :smile:

PEACE!

Thank you so much for recommending something, though!

Yes, there are. It’s actually a post though, but it could be a whole topic.

#20

Thank you, @William04GamerA

I know you are a long-time forumer! Do you have any awesome tips you’ve learned?


#23

Yeah. I joined when the forum was new, then I didn’t visit it until maybe 1,5-2 years ago. But yes, I am a long-time forummer, but there is actually no tips that haven’t been said. The only thing that I can think of right now is this cool trick:


However, as new groups aren’t being made, this will only be useful for forummers who own a group right now.
