@teh_g Well that was quick 😄
What can I say, I'm an early adopter with not too many plugins 😄
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.
...in progress now.
This looks interesting. It's technically cheating starting right now but hey, I guess that's the benefits of the pre-signup
Well, I haven't started yet, just doing some drafting and that's just a 0.00001% teaser.
haha I can't wait.
FYI core devs aren't elgible for the prizes (like, duh), but we will be around for newbies during the plugin week if they need help with certain aspects, hooks etc.
I have never worked with nodeBB but I shall join the fun for the mere sake of embarrassing myself. I need to get started on theming anyway.
I'd be interested, just need to find me some time to actually work on stuff. Full time internship is eating it all!
So... Does it count if I fix up that poll plugin, add a couple features... And you use it for voting? ^^
More serious though, how many entries? As of right now I have 3 plugin ideas, 2 of which are very large.
@Schamper I think it's about time we use your poll plugin. Did you know it's being used on the most active NodeBB forum yet? It's constantly hovering around 1000 concurrent users, I'm seeing a new post every 3-5 seconds (just leave their /recent page open for a few minutes)
Anyways congrats on building that. And NOPE, you're not allowed to resubmit Unfair advantage haha.
Unlimited entries I imagine
EDIT: only on a bitcoin forum would unlimited decimal places seem normal rofl
@psychobunny I did not know that! I actually thought no one used that! Well I suppose I can safely conclude that it is stable enough for a large forum...
The rounding mistake was actually fixed in a recent PR, but I didn't publish to npm yet.
Yeah I figured, was asking just in case Of course, you could casually mention me as developer of it in the voting thread...Might get me some votes
I would be surprised if I even finish one plugin though, just need to choose which one
Yeah you're exactly like me. Do five things at a time and accomplish negative one tasks in total.
EDIT: I'll give you one step better. Will promote your plugin on our twitter
That sounds interesting. I'm in.
I mean, I'm in.
@psychobunny Tell my friends! Haha, good one.
And I was more thinking about creating a new theme, rather than a plugin. But I definitely wouldn't mind a newbie category.
I'm in too, time to start pondering on an appropriate theme to theme :3
Good luck guys
If I only had the time, I'd see what I could do. Bit busy with university at present.
Soo any updates? It's monday in a couple hours here
@Schamper I didn't realise the contest had already started
@julian guess it's not this week huh, maybe I was too excited
