Had an amazing experience through participating in hacktoberfest 2k20

Firstly, I am a beginner. I came to know about Hacktoberfest from one video. Frankly speaking,I was attracted to the goodies.
But,this competition helped me to learn about what actually the open source is and how to contribute in one!

Glad to know you are having an amazing experience.

First of all hacktoberfest is not an competition but an event celebrating open-source.

Secondly it is fine to be attracted to the goodies, but the concern is what you did for those goodies and what new you got to learn.

Last but not the least keep going with what you learned, don't stop just after the event ends.

Stay Safe, Be happy!

Hello there, I have completed more than 4 PRs.
I wanted to whether there is any chance that there can be problem with review of PRs which takes 7 days.

If anyone can tell me about the 7 days review time, please enlighten me.

There can never be problem if you are doing good...

What I meant is the requirement for completion of hacktoberfest event is At least 4PR, if you are doing more than that, it is beneficial for you as you are learning more.

Regarding the 7 days time period, You can see a time for the PR's you have made in the hacktoberfest profile page. During 7 days if maintainers report your PR as spam/invalid then your next PR will go through that phase i.e. 7 days.

When your 4 PR are accepted after 7 days period you will be able to claim your reward.

Ok, so it is between the maintainer and the contributors. Hacktober has just made the deadline for PR merging 7 days.
It this right?

And thanks a lot for telling me
😁

Not for merging...
And well the 7 day time window is for contributors i.e. you..

Lets say you have submitted 4 PR and within the 7 day time one of your PR is marked invalid/span, then you will have to submit another PR to qualify for the event. And also the new PR will have to go through 7 day window.
