@jess Just to clarify, I made a few PRs that were merged already when Hacktoberfest started. But none of them have the hacktoberfest label on it. You're saying that they won't count is that right? Thanks.

Hello! Here is the language from DigitalOcean's recent statement:

"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."
