The team behind this very platform. πŸ˜„

I actually realized yesterday that my PRs for my own projects were being counted. These are just repos for homework assignments for my bootcamp I'm in (I've been trying to form the habit creating branches for individual functions I'm working on then merging into master, to learn a workflow). I messaged Hacktoberfest but apparently they aren't considered invalid by them.

However, I don't feel like they follow the spirit of the event (and the reason I joined), so I'm going to be marking them as invalid myself (once I figure out how lol).

I'd love to complete at least one real PR in contribution by the end of the month, though it's definitely been a challenge to do at the same time of trying to complete weekly assignments.


Tomorrow I'll look for an issue for begginers. The ones I've checked seem a bit complicated πŸ˜… I do want to help though.


Waiting for the PR reviews and excited to contribute more! Can anyone recommend a good C#.Net project that I can help with?


4/4. This is my first time contributing to open source and it feels great.


5/4 since last week, mostly small ones but still fulfilling to bring a little something to the open source community πŸ˜„


4/4 Waiting to be reviewed. I've had three PRs accepted by the repo maintainers and one in review. Planning on doing more though just for the heck of it on my spare time.


0/4 yet 😒 been busy with moving and starting a new job, I need to catch up and find projects to contribute to


so pull requests on our own repo counts or not?

edit: nvm sctolling down gave me the answer!
