Something I want to see in hopscotch that could really help hopscotch in so many ways is different applications for the advertisement box that’s in your drafts. (See below)

Idea

The advertisement in your drafts could cycle once and awhile into two other things
#1
A advertisement for the forum, cause who doesn’t like some more people to join us here. It’s also super hard to find the forum, I only found it because I was messing around with stuff in the gear.
#2
Advertisements for other projects. This could allow more use for seeds and increase project outreach

These advertisement boxes can also be placed around the app. These are also very non invasive.

This would be very useful!! :3

Yes, exactly. It also would help bring more coding back to Hopscotch by showcasing projects not based on the skill, so other people can find users at the same level as them. (As long as it puts the spotlight on CODING PROJECTS rather than art :sweat_smile:)

This really should be brought to Hopscotch. The games would probably have to be moderated though so that may cause an issue??…

Well roblox does something similar and I’m assuming the ad is checked before being posted so the project would probably be ckecked.

If they can check advanced mode stuff I guess that should be able to happen then

Oh yeah I was gonna add on to that by saying that I feel like one reason users don’t code as often is because the only games they see are the top, best and advanced ones?? Maybe that’s just me. But like they don’t see examples of coding they can do just examples of stuff way beyond their current capabilities. In some ways that is how I feel. So the ads could help other users in general just see things they could actually be inspired by or interested in coding in that sort of way.

Sorry I went all out on typing :sob:

I completely agree with this. That’s actually how I found the forum as well. Another possible idea is not only that but also changing up the style. This is going to sound really weird, but I was thinking something like how what Duolingo does with theirs :joy:. Because, I can’t speak for everyone, but for me… I kind of just glanced at it… once… and never really paid any attention to the advertisement at all after that.

Duolingos ads can get really annoying though because you literally have to wait and watch it as it fills up your screen :sob::sob:

Interesting

Seriously great idea though! It could be cool to see other things than the subscription ad (or even have the banner take other forms), hadn’t thought of something like that before.

that’s also interesting, though I think if Hopscotch ever did a iOS widget it would be cool to see other things like perhaps favorite projects, most recently featured projects, following, etc.

That would be cool if hs had a better tag system and you could choose some u like and get notified if projects With that tag were made u would get notified with β€œa project u might like”

Thats a cool idea
Man hopscotch could be 10x better with tweaks like this :sob:

Yah things are just slow because in reality there’s not many hopscotch employees and they have lives too.

I agree, with a x button somewhere where the user can tap it. Anyways, they will still see it, just less annoying. it will pop up again later tho, so don’t worry about no one not seeing anything

definitely like the idea of adverts about other projects on the app! would be fun to see the interesting ways people market their projects
