Thank you for your ideas on improving the forum. Read on to learn about the changes we’ve made.
- The Problem: If you’re new to the forum, it’s overwhelming and it’s difficult to know where to get help. You’re likely to post your question without knowing that it’s been answered many times before which is frustrating for forum regulars.
The Solution: You’re getting a new category called Frequently Asked Questions. This should make it easier for newcomers to get answers to their questions without the more experienced Hopscotchers getting burnt out answering the same thing over and over.
How you can help: Help get this started by finding topics that belong here and moving them into this category.
- The Problem: The “Random Stuff” category is for ideas about Hopscotch that might not fit elsewhere, that’s useful! Unfortunately, Random Stuff has been taken over by too many General Topics (GTs). GTs are a good way to make friends with potential collaborators, but there are too many and they’re crowding out more relevant topics.
The Solution: You’re getting a new category called General Topics. All GTs will go here and they’ll be capped at one per user. You can make a new one only when your old topic reaches the post limit.
How you can help: If you have a General Topic, please transfer it to this category.
