How did you get an invite? I've made 4 PRs and they show up on the start hacking page but didn't really get any completion message or invite. Not sure if I'm missing out on something

Yes It shows progress bar as full and 4 PRs below but does not explicitly mention that I cleared it or does not mention link to this post

Can you please explain the process by which I can know the status in the hacktoberfest contest.
I have done 4 PRs and then there was started a timer for 7 days...
What about it. ???

The timer is for maintainers of the repo on which you raised the PRs to verify the validity of the PRs. If any of your PRs are marked invalid you have to raise a different PR to complete the challenge.

I got confirmation! It was through mail. They didn't exactly show anything on website. Also, in mail check promotions tab.

It's October 1 in my timezone so I have about 5 PRs ready to be hopefully accepted. 馃槃 One of them is to!

I'm really excited to be working with different code bases (including languages I've never tried before) this time! I must admit I'm having a blast 馃殌!

As long as they are submitted they don't have to be accepted. As long as they are not reported as spam PRs, you're good.

Obviously we want our work to be merged. Last year one of my 4prs just sat there sadly, guess the maintainer abandoned the repo.

Oh okay, thanks for explaining that Fernando!

I actually went ahead and made a few more PRs 馃槉 hopefully all of them will be merged 馃暫馃徑

Completed 4 PR's! This was my first #hacktoberfest, so I was/am still a bit nervous. I'd like to be more active with contributing to open-source projects from here on out.

I feel extremely uncomfortable to touch any big problems, but this was a step forward!

I just learned a lot by this event, did 4 PL and got here. Lets hope my PL don't go in waste. I am still doing more because of this event as it has given me interest in this thing. Thank You to DigitalOcean, DEV Team for Hacktoberfest

I am turning to PWA (the basic one)!

I decided to add Web App manifest to reactjs documentation for hacktoberfest so users can "Add to Homescreen" the documentations. Also added URL bar color and logo to it.

Here's my PR:

WebApp manifest added to allow users "Add to Homescreen" documentations #2377

This solves issue #2259


Currently there is not manifest set for the website so logo is blank and title is set as a name. Also the color of URL bar in chrome is plain white. Here's how it will look after this PR.


Image 1 is to show the new color of URL bar in chrome Image 2 is the screen after selecting "Add to homescreen" Image 3 is the splash screen after opening it as WebApp

I've added color to the URL bar, Configured name, short_name and other properties. and added a logo file in src/images/react_logo.png (Needed 512px png logo so had to add a new logo)

This is my first contribution here so I'm sorry if I missed out on something

2 of the PRs are in an npm module called prompts for some bug fixes.

And 1 PR is in the

GitHub logo tmrowco / tmrowapp-contrib

Tomorrow automatically calculates the climate impact of your daily choices by connecting to apps and services you already use.

I am looking forward to work with them even after hacktoberfest as they are working on application related to climate change.

Also, I am working on a PR for DEV. It will not really be part of hacktoberfest as I've already sent 4 PRs but I am super excited to work on DEV

i completed the challenge on Saturday (06/10) during an exclusive women's meeting, focused on learning and teaching git / github concepts for other women, together, we made the 'hacktoberfest for women'.
the initiative was born with the communit 'Developer Circles from Facebook' here in Recife, Pernambuco - Brazil and was has support for another groups, some like Women Who Code and Pyladies.

so, how the life isn't just code, one of my PR's, was in an amazing and funny repository, the 'DevJoke' of Shruti Kapoor (

"this is all folks!"

Hi, anyone knows the size chart for Hacktoberfest T-Shirt? I only see the dropdown to select size and then the next page is delivery address but cannot find the size chart anywhere.

I didn't even know that Hacktoberfest started, and received "Congratulations on submitting 4 PRs during Hacktoberfest!" email :-)

This is the advantage of getting paid to work on Open Source!

I just made more than 4 PRs to a project I enjoy contributing to and to add more fun to it, it is Hactoberfest!! Currently, under review from the maintainers. I am off to do more ....馃弮馃従鈥嶁檪锔

Firstly, apologies if I have already commented. I couldn't find my comment, thus adding one. It's all very new to me and I am just working thing out.

I completed my first 4 pull request last week. Since then I have been slowly taking on a few other things. Just a big shout out to everyone for making this happen. It is a lot of fun and with out a community, like yourself, people like me ... well...we would still be stuck in a dark (or light) corner trying to figure things out! #thankyou #hacktoberfest
