Cool :3 cannot wait to see the winning theme!
@svandecappelle, I think plugins only qualify if they are released for the first time this month.
So, other than myself, is anyone working on a last-minute submission?
@Ted yeah I am almost done with my first plugin, going to submit it later tonight or tomorrow. There is still a whole day and some left in October
@arasbm, glad to see I'm not alone then
Woo hoo! Thanks @Schamper
@Ted The first release was created on Oct 19, 2014
My submission is the Tron theme, which is semi-quasi-almost-pretty-much-finished as it stands now.
Here is the shortlist (actually, it's the complete list, but I just wanted to say "shortlist".) of entries for the Plugin & Theme Bonanza!
- @JLChnToZ, nodebb-plugin-Niconico
- @arasbm, nodebb-plugin-whoisin
- @pitaj, nodebb-plugin-Calendar
- @mani, nodebb-plugin-Github Card
- @Almost, nodebb-plugin-Image Resizing
- @JLChnToZ, nodebb-plugin-BiliBili
- @tedr56, nodebb-plugin-Ted Talks
- @a_5mith, nodebb-plugin-Codepen Embedding
Please let somebody know if you have a plugin or theme that we missed.
Polling begins shortly! (~24 hours)
Edit: Considering adding @Almost from BitBangers for http://bitbangers.co.uk/topic/132/nodebb-plugin-anchors
nodebb-plugin-Charts (@svandecappelle) had a number of upgrades made to it the month of October, but it was technically started in May True to his word, the plugin was not released until October 19th, so it gets a bit grey there
nodebb-plugin-Teamspeak (@pitaj) was removed as it was started in late September, but was included initially as @pitaj is considered a new dev. We'll let the public decide (same with the teamspeak-widget plugin)
nodebb-plugin-codepen (@a_5mith) is still included as the npm registry lists its publish date as:
"0.1.0": "2014-10-02T18:49:29.226Z, so again, grey, like the charts plugin
@julian You missed Tanners theme. Is it not good enough for entry? If I don't win, I'm taking my ball and going home!
@Tanner Jury's out on that one, since it was started in August :shipit:
Also, it would happen to be the only theme on the poll, since Cucina was released Nov 2nd XD
@julian If we're only accepting plugins or themes that started in October, then doesn't that put nodebb-plugin-teamspeak, nodebb-plugin-codepen, nodebb-plugin-charts & nodebb-plugin-reddit out of contention too then? Seems strange to not accept a theme started before October, but plugins are fine. Mine included. Your competition, i can see why entering one theme into a theme competition is a little out there.
I'm also not sure about accepting plugins that don't work. Botler for example, as good as it sounds, has none of that functionality built in. It's just an admin menu that doesn't do anything.
From the ReadMe:
As of right now, this plugin is unusable. Currently this plugin is only interesting for other developers who want to have a shot at working on this.
Seems strange to not accept a theme started before October, but plugins are fine.
That's right (that it's strange), there should be no exceptions, so I'll have to look into the commit dates for those and cull the list a bit
@julian Sounds good. Just avoiding the riots. I know what forum members are like.
@a_5mith Updated the shortlist with the removed entries and explanations. I'd really appreciate feedback from other users regarding our (unfortunately) playing fast and loose with the rules (and not really cementing them in the first place!)
@julian I suppose it's too late to do much more about it now, but for the next one, we should probably set a hard and fast rule that plugins or themes should have an initial publish date in npm of the month of the competition. So if someone wants to spend the next x months working on the theme of all themes, they could wait until the next comp to officially publish it to npm, this would encourage quality. As I certainly couldn't build a theme in a month.
@Schamper Yeah saw that, sorry. Wrote that post from memory, didn't finish reading the readme regarding the bot creator etc.
You should add the anchor plugin from @almost, im sure he wont mind.
