Which seems to be nodebb's approach in general w.r.t. stuff like this
In general, yes. We try to not muck around with existing installs too much, but plugins are a little more fast and loose with things like this. Will keep it in mind 😄
We decided that from now on, we'll have a competition between the three of us @baris @julian. During the week we'll try (our best) to work on core (and in general more productive things), but on the weekend every weekend it'll be an all out plugin battle. Whoever writes the most plugins wins all the internet cakes and stuff. Quality counts and I guess you guys can vote on it, if and when we build a voting plugin.
Feel free to join us in this epic battle. Doesn't matter how bad it is, just do it!

Don't forget to vote on your plugin ideas. We won't do it. Put that in the plugin requests thread that nobody checks
p.s. non-core developers get the whole week, our work only counts if released on the weekend. (hardmode)
For this weekend, Jan 17-20th
in first place imo comes @mr_waffle
step up @julian, you're losing 21 hours to go!
The guy who writes the best security-related plugin gets interviewed on my site, with his mug shot plastered for all to see. Is that a good-enough incentive to work on one of those? I'm thinking of anything that brings WAF features to the platform.
I thought I could get that offer simply out of my good looks regardless of my plugin writing abilities
Ok, the offer stands, but if you write the security plugin that wins the Blue ribbon, you and your girlfriend gets interviewed. Sorry, no free trip to some tropical paradise.
Haha, first I'd need to find a @girlfriend (DOH, didn't work) but that would mean I'd have to give up NodeBB time.... naaah.
I'd like to thank the academy.
Not thanking mom and dad?
@psychobunny oh yeah for Mom.
wooo Go Waffle
Wait, so it's the NodeBB team vs the community? Except we have to work only on weekends? GAME ON.
So a new week has started...
Hey NodeBB community?
Everything is done from a plugin.
wow... you sir have won this week next week and the week after
I think unless somebody writes an awesome security plugin, @Mr_Waffle will be a winner from now til Thy Kingdom Come!
That is very cool!
Oh right, we never clarified whether a new week began on Sunday or Monday
EDIT but creepy lol.
Who needs chat roulette when you have @Mr_Waffle + NodeBB
awesome security plugin
what do u have in mind? im bored.
