What is discourse profile

forum

#1

When looking to see who had a Regular badge I saw discourse. They have all four trust levels and posts or anything!


I Discovered a secret account!
#2

The Hopscotch forum uses discourse to make their website. You can read about it here:
http://www.discourse.org/


#3

I know that. I was wondering why they have a profile


#4

I think because it's like in hopscotch you remix someone else's projects you get their username above yours so since hopscotch used http://www.discourse.org to make the hopscotch forum so because on discourse you can't make projects so discourse should get a profile.


#5

I believe that discourse has a profile with trust level 3 because it is a bot for discourse that automatically flags things for spam, closes threads, etc.


#6

That makes sense. Once one of my replies got hidden because discourse thought it was spam because I gave a link to an HSB picker :grin:


#7

That's interesting. Even more interesting to me because that is not a normal profile! :grinning:


#8

It's probably just to advertise the program they used, or something put into the app (so Hopscotch can't disable it), like an extra monitor or something.

Hi like @BuildASnowman said, Discourse is what this forum is based on. The makers of Discourse have accounts here too, and I think it's so they can check up on the forum if things go funny behind the scenes.


#10

It's actually Askimet, their spam blocker that automatically blocks stuff when it notices you got spam! Just saying! :wink:


#11

Is there any program for inappropriate and rude posts/topics? (Sorry off topic :frowning: )


#12

Askimet. Look above your post :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#13

Oh, ok. I guess Discourse is a program that helps you make a website.


#14

Yeah, a forum in particular. :slightly_smiling:🙃:slightly_smiling:🙃


#15

@Rawrbear how do you know??


#16

Because one of @codinghorror's posts was on Discourse :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#17

Also, they are practically exactly the same.
