I believe that private messaging via The Hopscotch Forum should be allowed since you can't chat outside of Hopsco-
Well, actually, it is moderated! Leaders and above would be able to see these PMs, and the posts can be deleted! This feature would also be for members and higher, meaning that you can't just make a new account and be mean like that
That's not going to happen. The kids on this forum are DEFINITELY smart enough to not share addresses or other personal information! The whole forum is composed of older kids that are 8 or more years old, and if you're that age, you've either been taught not to share it in school/your parents/the internet, or you have enough logic not to say anything bad like that!
Well, if that or something else bad like that happens, they'll then simply have the chance to be suspended or banned from Hopscotch!
In my mind, PMing should be primarily used for collabing.
Well, if a leader sees, they'd say something like: "Is this Hopscotch related? If not, please make it related to Hopscotch. Thanks! :)"
If they keep abusing PM, they're eligible to have the ability to PM taken away from them.
As I was saying, I believe that private messaging via The Hopscotch Forum should be allowed since you can't chat outside of Hopscotch! A lot of my outside conversations were either collabs or stories, so PMing could replace those Google Doc conversations and stories, but make it on the forum!
As I said, PMs are moderated! If Hopscotcher 1 said something nasty to Hopscotcher 2, Hopscotcher 2 could flag Hopscotcher 1's post, and then a leader would go over, delete Hopscotcher 1's bad post(s), and then Hopscotcher 1 would have their ability to PM taken away! They could also have a chance to be suspended for a certain amount of time, or be banned from the forum completely!
If they're not Hopscotch related and they're just talking about their favorite part of ____ anime or something, a leader would see and say something like, "Lets get back on topic, k? :)". If they don't get back on topic, they could also have their PM taken away.
In a nutshell, if you abused PM by:
- Being off topic about random stuff
- Sharing personal information
- Being mean
You would have it taken away from you.
Also, it would allow Liza to add more leaders to the forum for people who want to be a leader! There would probably be a lot of PMs, so there would have to be more leaders to monitor PMs (so leaders don't get overwhelmed by their job)!
And then there's also a very good idea that @SmileyAlyssa suggested that would reduce leader monitoring and mean people drastically through PMs:
I believe this is what should happen, since a person can't just make a new account and start hating.
Do you agree?
