Yes yes, the title was to attract you guys. But I have something important to say
Our forum is falling apart. When I first joined, it was a place to get help and get to know other hopscotchers better. Everyone was happy, everyone was equal. But now, it seems that the forum has turned into more of a social media. There are lots of off topic posts, and lots of off topic topics, which no one cares about it because they like it. It used to be a place to get help, and I liked it that way.
Take The drawing topic. It's completely off topic, yet no one cares. We even made 5 of the topics! But when one person posts a topic like "what's your favorite tv show?" Everyone explodes. And if a popular person posts something off topic, no one cares. But if a non-popular person does, everyone says "that's off topic, I'm flagging". The forum is now basically a social media, and I don't like it. You guys probably didn't even bother to look at this topic because it wasn't made by someone popular. If someone popular made the same exact topic, everyone would go into that topic. I'm not complaining that I'm so unpopular, I'm just showing that There's almost a hierarchy here
Also, we need the leaders and mods back. ever since all the mods and leaders got demoted, the forum has been a mess. Everyone's fighting, so many inappropriate posts, and it just collapsed. The leaders and mods are what held us together, but now we're shattered. The glue that held us together has disappeared, and we're a mess. I know we have THT, but they can't moderate as much as the hopscotcher leaders and mods.
Now, when I first joined, we only had two Mods, @BuildASnowman and @t1_hopscotch But one was enough, there weren't many people. But the amount of people has grown so much, and now we have less mods than when the forum started. That makes no sense.
Why can't we just go back to what the forum used to be? A happy place to ask for help, not a kids social media?
