I know you have been waiting a super long time for this, and ever since I completed the first ever version of Mentors Coding Challenge you all have been constantly asking me to do another! So I am back and at it again!! This time though, I have stricter rulers, bigger and better teams, better grading criteria, and even a change to the jobs list!!! Even if you participated in the other Mentors Coding Challenge, please be sure to read this topic carefully because there were many changes!!!
If you still do not understand any information in this topic, please let me know!! I will answer any questions or reveal doubts! Any veterans to the challenge, please also assist me in answering some basic questions about the challenge!
**FOR VETERANS: Last time I said we would have 2 rounds. That never ended up happening, but please keep in mind that won’t be happening this time either. There is only 1 round!!
Jobs I am Looking for:
- I would like to be a MENTOR (I have read all of the rules and information)
- I would like to be a CODER (I have read all of the rules and information)
The mentors “mentor” or assist the coders in creating a project. The project will have a theme, in which the project has to be based off of. Themes will be given once groups are decided. I used to have judges, but I decided to not do those this time around. The mentors can create topics to discuss with their respective coders on their plan!!
-You MUST create a topic for effective communication between me and your group, and also between your mentor and coder.
-You MUST be kind to others
-You MUST not take the help of other groups (unless it is to clarify rules)
-You MUST follow the theme given to you
-If you are planning to leave the forum and/or hopscotch, you must complete the challenge first.
-If you make this commitment, you have to follow through with it. I had issues last challenge with people dropping off the face of the Earth and abandoning their group. I will not condone that at all.
-You must have easy access to the internet/a comfortable device to appropriately communicate with me/your mentor on the forum/hopscotch.
-As following the guidelines, you can only communicate with your mentor on the forum/hopscotch. I do not want to have to deal with any issues of people not following the guidelines while participating in this challenge.
I understand that this is a lot of information, and please read it carefully. If you sign up for a role in this challenge, I will be making the conclusion that you understand these rules and will abide by them. This challenge, I’ve learned requires a lot of communication and effort, and I hope you will demonstrate that and take something out of this.
The mentors help the coders. Mentors cannot code for the coders, this is cheating. Mentors must also be kind to their coders. Mentors have to create a topic to chat and keep in touch with their coder! Mentors can help with design, an efficiency of blocks, bugs, and help with ideas. Mentors can and should also keep progress reports on their coders, and report those progress reports to me on time. Please note that being a mentor requires you to check the forum at least once every three days so I can be updated and keep track of everyone and where they stand.
The coders get the bulk of work. They get the chance to actually code a project that is based off of the theme I give your pair. The coders must be kind to their mentors. Coders have the chance to be creative with their projects! Although being a coder does not mean as much communication as mentors, you still must be connected to your mentor through the forum or hopscotch. Please regularly update your mentor on your progress so they can update me!!!
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FOR DURING/AFTER THE CHALLENGE…
This is where you can go if you are looking for the criteria for judging! This is where I am going to be judging you on your project! This is a great place to go if you want to double check that you meet all of the requirements before you submit your project!! **Note: Your project does not HAVE to be a game! It can be trail art, an RP, or anything like that!!
Did you keep a strong relationship with your mentor/coder?
Does your project look the part and have a great outer design?
Do you have a unique idea that abides the theme?
Lack of Bugs
Does your project have no bugs or issues with efficiency?
Is the overall look, feel, and efficiency of your project good?
To submit your final project, you have to share the link to your project and let me know your group #! That can be done on THIS topic! If you do not know how to share a link, please ask your mentor!
Due dates will be given once the groups are finally decided! Please refer to this topic to clarify doubts, and ask your mentor/coder before asking me!!
