My review period extended by one week. It was 7 days and now 14. What does it mean? Is it because of the new Hactoberfest norms regarding PRs?

The same thing happened with me I was worried but then got to know it has been extended for all, I think due to huge participation they need more time to review.

Actually, I submitted my PR on 1st October. But on 3rd October review timer got reset and counting 24 days from 3rd October now. Is this what happened to you?

I have contributed to a repo without an "hacktoberfest" topic to it. Will my PR get count?

Hi! Below is a snippet from DigitalOcean's recent statement about the changes!

"We will honor all valid pull requests prior to this change, and as of October 3, 2020 at 12:00:00 UTC – and October 3 in all time zones – pull requests will only count toward earning a T-shirt or planting a tree if they are submitted in a repository classified with the ‘hacktoberfest’ topic. The pull requests will also need to be merged, approved by a maintainer, or labeled as ‘hacktoberfest-accepted’ in order to qualify. The deadline for completions, merging, labeling, and approving is November 1."

Thanks :)

Hi Gracie, I did my first 6 PRs one the 1st October itself & the issues were labelled as hacktoberfest. And 5 of them was merged too.
So are those gonna be counted?

Actually, I submitted my PR on 1st October. But on 3rd October review timer got reset and counting 14 days from 3rd October now. But in few cases, days prior to 3rd October are also counted? Why is it so?

What are the odd that I am eligible to get a Hacktoberfest 2020 t-shirt?
This is my first time ever and I am not rushing for it.

You’ve submitted the four required PRs for the Hacktoberfest challenge! So long as your PRs successfully pass the review period, they’ll become valid — which means you’ll have officially completed this year’s challenge!

THIS IS WHAT I RECEIVED LAST NIGHT..

Would be cool, that if they are merged you don't need to wait for the grace period :D
