Hopscotch Forum Anniversary Contest! (SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED)

Today (July 16th, 2019) is the Hopscotch Forum’s fourth anniversary! I have decided to hold a coding competition (thanks to @FearlessPhoenix) so that people can contribute to the forum’s anniversary.

Rules:

  1. The project must be coded. Any drawn project will not be accepted.
  2. It must be positive.
  3. It must display the forum’s release date (July 16th)
  4. The project must feature an anniversary cake ( :cake: )
  5. The project must have clear instructions.
  6. The project must be published to the community.
  7. The project must be submitted by pasting a link to it in your submission post.

Judging will be based on the following:

  1. Smoothness
  2. Creativity
  3. Positivity
  4. Originality (No copying other users. Doing so will disqualify you.)
  5. Code complexity

The judges will be the @Leaders and I.

There will be five finalists.

The prizes are:

1st place:

5th place:

  • One like on 15 of your posts (@Cocoa_Viola and the leaders will divide the likes evenly)
  • Community Competition participation badge (awarded by Ana)

Sorry CV, but when did we say that we could help you judge and give out prizes?

8 Likes

You didn’t, but I figured it might help if the leads judged the contest in partnership with me.

Also, this was another leader’s idea, not mine.

Okay. But you should have checked with us before.

I never agreed to do this…

I can both judge and make a coded trail art logo.

Yeah me too
I can give likes etc, but that’s it because I have a super busy schedule for my projects!

5 Likes

I said you could make the topic.
I didn’t say we’d be involved, or that I’d give prizes

here, I’ll make a list of things to remove and things to add. this way they will all be in one place.

things we can't do
  • custom titles. they are only given under specific circumstances, such as winning lead-hosted contests and applying for the leader position.
  • projects from HR. he’s out for the summer and won’t be able to help us.
  • projects from Silverdolphin and FearlessPhoenix. they both declined because their coding schedules are busy.
things we can do
  • custom community competition badges! these are awarded for participation, and first through third place.
  • judging assistance! (from those who agreed)
  • a coded trail art logo from William!
  • a simple trail art or music track from Serenity!
  • prizes, shoutouts or spamlikes from any other user on the forum. ask around to see who’s interested!

you can decide from this list what prizes you would like from what place, and we’ll edit them for you.

Okay, but it has to be fair with everyone.

Okay thank you for understanding :slight_smile:

No problem.

Have at it. Just, let’s try to not loop in people that never agreed , shall we? The prizes can stay as they are, you can just edit the typos and formatting.

I did it!

Now we can split this topic and hide the evidence so that people can focus on the actual competition.

Cool!
I might be able to code something.
Though, why does the cake emoji :cake: have to be in the project?

3 Likes

Just so people understand.

It’s also the anniversary cake THT assigned on the forum, so why not.

hm.
i don’t understand how a project about the HSF anniversary can be sad. that criteria confused me.
