I did it so far!
3 PRs merges and really challenged to even do more :D

Just learned so much from people's feedback on the PRs and refactoring that.
Also felt like I needed to document better which pushed me.

My four contributions:

Added random boolean example script #21

Added boolean example page, also see this screenshot to see my tests.

This will solve issue #4

Other information

Any other information that is important to this pull request

Feature/multi tag #9

Fix issue #6 regarding the filters. You can now filter on multiple queries.

Please note: GitHub graph API does not like the "AND" filter, so included a custom filter (made a manual loop for speed)

You can see the result in the attached screenshot. It also still works for 1 query Screenshot 2020-10-02 at 10 13 30

Added random date + options and documentation #28


Created the randomDate function which has the following formats:

  • min
  • max
  • format
  • range

Also added a documentation example that showcases different variants. Solves issue #26 Screenshot 2020-10-02 at 13 03 31

I 'unofficially' finished my four PRs just a few hours shy of November! This was my first hacktoberfest and I really wish I could've done more, but this October was too busy.
One of the PRs was for my own repo, and was counted in before the rules changed to only count tagged repos. Another two PRs were opened today so I don't think they'll be tagged before the end. In any case, I'm happy I took this step :)
Congrats to everyone who participated!

So, all my PRs are now Mature. I would love to have kind of certification. Maybe a Picture behind a Link with the Name. Like "Hacktoberfest 2020 Challange completed". This would look awesome on LinkedIn or Xing.

Just got my 4th and final PR in!

The first three were work related, so nothing to show off, but the fourth was to one of my favorite Twitter bots:

add definitions for all labels under 'sexual orientation' #111

Added definitions for all of the labels under "sexual orientation" for now.

Will add for more categories if I have time.

I was able to do it! Seem to be a lot more frontend devs compared to backend devs, so I've been able to help out with some Rails projects, updating pagination, helping write rspecs. Open source is fun

Glad to have completed 4PRs (2 merged so far) that are currently going through the review period.

I did my four PRs and "completed" it!




Sadly they all in Ineligible Repository state even they are within information given in the rules and FAQ.

You can contact maintainers of those repos and request them to do either one of these steps:
1) add hacktoberfest topic for that repo
2) add hacktoberfest-accepted label to your PR

My PR submission is showing mature in 11 days. Shouldn't it be for 7 days?

They bumped up the PR maturity time to give maintainers more time to flag things as invalid/spam.

I created my 4 PR on 1st October. But my review period instead of extending by 1 week more 3rd October, has been reset. So 1st and 2nd October are not taken into account. Why is it so? Could you help

Made 7 PRs so far, all in one sprint on October 3rd. Will work on more over the weekends. 😄
