MUSIC HACKATHON: FAQ
katyadee (1134)

Hey folks! A lot of you have been asking me the same kinds of questions, so I figured i'd make a handy FAQ:

1. What's the theme?
The theme is music!

2. Does this mean my repl has to play audio?
No - it doesn't. You're free to interpret "music" however you'd like! One of my favorite music-related repls we've received on the site is @jajoosam and @thesephist's lyrics.rip, which didn't play audio but did generate fake lyrics. It's all about what you want to create. Not sure if your repl fits the theme? Hit me up on Discord or post here - I'm happy to talk you through anything.

3. So... what's the deal with copyrights?
This one is kind of nebulous. My best advice here is not to use any copyrighted songs, because you never know how you'll want to share your repl or where.

4. How much of my work can be from libraries or previously made?
"Original content" means this: don't steal other people's work! Things that are open source, libraries, are free to use with attribution, etc. are fair game.

5. How will my work be judged?
We're looking for creativity and execution here. This doesn't mean it has to be super complex though. If an idea is good, an idea is good!

6. What language should I create my repl in?!
The cool thing about a flexible theme? If you can find a way, you can do it. Web projects have so far proven to be popular though.

7. Can I create my entry elsewhere then c/p it into a repl?
No :-( The idea here is to use Repl.it!

8. Can I have (a) partner(s)?
Sure can! We encourage folks to use Multiplayer for group projects.

Do we need to provide links of our repl forking history or you can track that?

Hi, my partner and I would love to use the mutiplayer feature, but sadly it isn't stable yet: we are loosing code or getting doubled lines of code.
Are we still eligible to win a prize when we share one account instead?
Or could we work on two seperate repls and merge the code in a third one when we have finished?
Hopefully you can help us with this :)

Will only projects with enough upvotes be reviewed, or all of the submissions? If someone shares their project near the deadline, there won’t be much time for that post to get upvotes..

katyadee (1134)

@olafh10 All of the submissions :)

katyadee (1134)

@olafh10 It's not based on upvotes at all.

What time is the deadline, and in which time zone? I'm not sure whether the countdown uses local time.

Does audio work when using the Pygame "language"? I can't seem to get it to work

Who judges the competition? Is it the sponsors or you guys? (sorry if this was already answered somewhere else!)

@hahahoohoo the judge is apparently the CEO of Genius!

Can you work on submission after it's submitted and before the contest submission deadline?
