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

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. ???

Hi,
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. 😄 One of them is to DEV.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 🚀!

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.

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 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 (github.com/shrutikapoor08/devjoke)

"this is all folks!"

I am turning reactjs.org 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

Then

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.

Now

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

Does anyone know when this icon will be changed according to given Legend which is given below your contributions sections? It seems that, even if PR is merged, icon says still pending!

Or are we suppose to do something in PR like tagging with hacktoberfest ??

Big Shout Out to Everyone making Hacktoberfest possible. I, notably, achieved my first 4 PRs and the first time I have participated in this event. I have to confess - I think I am addicted. Perfect environment for me. I am now looking for more to contribute and take my skills up a notch! #thankyou

I've just submitted my 4th PR and received Hacktobert's e-mail letting me know to wait for maintainers' approval. Can't wait! This is my first time, so I'm basically learning how to use Git and at the same time contributing to projects spreading the word about Data Science and Python resources. It was a bit hard to find projects I could help as a first-timer and code newbie, but I was able to add a community I'm part of, a podcast I listen to, a Youtube channel I watch, and a book I translated to 4 repos I follow. It's great practice on using Git! #Hacktoberfest

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

Already got my 4 PRs in; that was quick 😂
Most were fixing typos and ensuring projects have the proper license file so Github can detect it properly. I like how Github recommends great repos to me based on my stars, it works very well for me. I've found a few interesting ones already, so I might contribute some more substantial PRs this month just because ✊

Finished 4 pull requests already! I've never participated in anything like this so it was some great experience and very addictive! I definitely plan on making a habit of doing this more often as I learned a lot and it felt good to see my contributions!

Yeah, I did it ! Last year I stopped after 1 PR. And this year, after 2 days, I made 4 PRs, little contributions to the Godot Engine documentation to close some issues. I will continue to do PRs all the month, maybe I will try to fix some engine little issues (let's learn C++ 😀 ) !

Second Hacktoberfest I've taken part in, my four PRs have now been submitted! Mixture of fixes, feature improvements, documentation and README polishing! Three of the PRs have already successfully been merged, the last one will hopefully soon be as well. Feel free to visit my GitHub profile to check out the stuff I'm up to!

First PR submitted for Hacktoberfest! Figured I'd start with something simple - addressing Node.js audit issues in the Itch app, something I happen to use frequently.
