Original post updated with sponsor and prize information!! :D
@julian Maybe a stupid question but how will you handle the transport ? Also I don't know if it's like in France but here you need a bailiff to validate the contest when there are prizes.
Anyway cool prizes here.
@psychobunny Can we just take the value instead of the hosting?
@trevor Yeah we might end up changing it to just a cash prize from us instead
Looks like I really need to get started now. When do you expect the official deadline to be announced?
Unofficially, I'm thinking it would run all October, but that's still to be decided :)
So when can we start submitting entries? ^^
Well we have the rest of the month to decide what goes down October as far as the dates, deadlines, etc. go.
So we'd like to start organizing a new plugin / theme contest - probably will make it a week-long affair (and announce it a lot earlier in advanced). The ol' plugin weekends were a real fun thing but maybe it's time to get a bit more serious and offer an actual decent set of prizes.
This is just the sign-up thread. Please let us know if you're interested by replying. The prize(s) will depend on the amount of pre-signups we get. If you know any developer friends, get them in here!
I'll update this thread over the next few days with what we have in mind regarding prizes and timeline.
- 1 x $50 AMEX Gift card to the overall winner ($35 USD value)
- 1 x Google Chromecast to the winner of each category (best plugin, best theme, etc)

We are thinking!
If this has not started already, I'd like to join as well. I would also fit into the newbie category as this would be my very first nodebb plugin.
Starting Oct 1 and will run for the entire month :)
I'm in :)
I will try to do a light theme... Maybe foundation 5 :3 !
I'll tell you right now, if you figure out how to use foundation as an alternative framework to bootstrap for NodeBB, you will get a lot more from us than the above prizes :P I know it's doable, but it will take work, that's for sure!
Contest has started, here's the official link: https://community.nodebb.org/topic/2527/nodebb-plugin-theme-contest-bonanza-2014/2
Locking this thread :)
