I contributed yesterday with a 0 conflict commit. But it was not merged due to being a cpp code and java repo. So, my question is, is merging necessary criteria for earning the the hacktoberfest swags?
What will happen not as my contribution was not merged(pull request closed) at auth0 repo.


Hey! I contributed today in with a 0 conflict commit.


@rb007123 can you share, or DM me, the link to your PR and we can take a look?


I submitted a PR 5 days ago that has yet to be reviewed:
What happens with respect to hacktoberfest if this is not reviewed today?


My PR was merged in one of the repos ~15 days ago and I filled up the Google form for swag redemption. However, I haven’t received any email yet reg. it, now that Hacktoberfest is over. When should I be expecting it? Thanks


Thank you @vinayak42, @cfreksen and all others who contributed. We are processing all contributions and will be sending something out soon to all valid submissions.


:+1:…Fingers crossed
My 5 PRs got merged.


I submitted a PR in October but it didn’t get merged… I’m guessing that means I’m out of the running as far as t-shirts go?


:wave: @berry120 not necessarily! I will take a look at the PR with my team and get back to you shortly.

We haven’t sent out any updates yet as we are still reviewing all incoming PRs from Hacktoberfest.


Ah, thanks very much for still considering it!


Hi @kimcodes, I have submitted a PR. But hasn’t been merged yet. I’d really appreciate it if you could take a look at it.


We have received a ton of great submissions and are furiously reviewing them. You should be receiving an email soon (or already received) with next steps needed, but know that we are pedaling as fast as we can!


Ahoy, I might have ducked up and did not fill out the original google form which is now closed - any way to fix this?


@napstr can you DM me the PR(s) you made? I can take a look.


@kimcodes, @jerdog, Hello!
Can you please give a feedback of hacktoberfest results?
When do you think the mail should be expected?
