Musical programming language?!?! 🤯
That sounds awesome!
Thank you! I might start to post about using it soon, please check in!
(in fact I posted a little hello world recently)
Thank you @dev.to staff For making this thread.
it's my first Hacktoberfest and I think this is gonna help me a lot.
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?
Mine was extended by a week on 3rd October.
Mine was reset on 3rd October even though all my PRs were accepted before 3rd October

They all are accepted!

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!
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?
Thank you for your reply it meant a lot :)
Dear contributor's please checkout this repo.
It's my first open source project & it's in progress. Feel free to add issues & contribute.

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.
