Might seem stupid but may I ask what is the REPL in the challenge there for?
I mean, does the tutorial have to be about writing to ascii files?
Or can it be a tutorial for anything?
I am not sure.

Also, @timmy_i_chen, specifying the timezone in deadlines is a lot helpful for int'l students like myself. It might well be in the middle of the night for some of us, which might be a problem.

Thanks

@MarcoSanto Added timezones. :)

The repl should aid in the tutorial to explain a concept or to add interactivity, ideally, but we're open to creative uses. The tutorial can be for anything!

1

@timmy_i_chen Please add something in UTC standard because that's the standard accepted worldwide. I don't know off the top of the head what this EST means because it's a local US abbreviation and I'm not from the US. So I'll have to google that.
Writing EST does not help anyone who doesn't live in the US at all. But writing UTC-(something) helps everyone, as they can just add/subtract the difference. For example if it's UTC-5, it will be 8 hours later here because my timezone is UTC+3.

Would I need a discord account to participate?

1

@XavierDD Nope! This challenge is happening here on Repl Talk :)

@timmy_i_chen I was a little bit confused by the newsletter. Can you please clarify if the last winner was the Neural Networks tutorial or the LOLCODE one? :)

I don't quite understand what type of tutorial i'm supposed to make. Can somebody help my one this please?

1

@totobird It can be about anything! You can make it related to coding or not. But keep in mind that your audience are coders!

1

Hey, so I am trying to link a Repl to a tutorial but I don't see the option to do so anymore when creating it...

1

@minermaniac447 Sorry about that, you should see it again :)

1

@timmy_i_chen could you please unbanned me from your discord server,please?????????????????????????????????

I'm new to Repl, but not python, so lemme see what I can pull off.

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

I'm just curios on how to make a tutorial. Is that the button saying "Share Your Tutorial"?

and in the making of the tutorial, the post by JSer " https://repl.it/talk/learn/A-Quick-Guide-to-Replit-Talk-Markdown/7448 " is that about styling the post ?

I'm just a beginner and want to participate by sharing the basics of Python that I learned by 2 weeks of coding :D

2

@Blink You're correct on both counts! I'm excited to see what you share :)

1

ok. challenge accepted

1

Hopefully this isn't advertising, but I made a tutorial that documents a turtle's life from birth to the journey to the ocean. The turtle is actually a Turtle Graphics turtle. Does this count as a tutorial?

1

I tried to do something extremely original and creative.

1

The challenge section of Repl Talk say the third place prize is a $25 dollar gift card. This post says the third place prize is a $20 gift card. Is the third place prize $25 or $20?

1

@2IsAPrimeNumber Oops - it's $25 - I fixed it in the post :)

1

I do not do things like this, but I will try this time.

1

@AlfonsoTorres Hooray! Trying is all that matter s:)

1

Any mentor down to teach me python, new to programming, right now studying list and returns

1

@elisee10 I can give you some advice here and there

1

I'm ready to utterly fail!

1

@Reader8765 But I excel at being negative.

Challenge Accepted! Lets do this

1

My first tutorial is out!

1

How do i submit a tutorial like i can make one but where do i submit it
this might be my first challenge

1

@doshz Submit it as a post to the Challenges board. JSer wrote a markdown tutorial here so you can style it nicely: https://repl.it/talk/learn/A-Quick-Guide-to-Replit-Talk-Markdown/7448

Challenge accepted Boyo

1

I'm just starting out but I'd like to contribute what I know to someone who perhaps knows less.

1

@Dilkin Tutorials can be of any level! Feel free to contribute what you know. :)

1

Can we record the tutorial with screen recording software?

1

@timmy_i_chen I don't live in America, so I don't have anywhere to spend a gift card for amazon... unless it is online

2

@epicman702 We can (and have in the past) make arrangements for other gift cards you can use in your country. :)

1

How do we receive the money if we win and also it does not have to be done in programming right?

2

@IEATPYTHON We send out Amazon Gift Cards at the conclusion of the competition.

The tutorial does not have to teach the user anything about programming, but it does need to use Repl.it!

1

Are we allowed to work on them now? Or do we need to wait for October 8th? I just want to make sure to be fair.

1

@Werewolfy You can work on them now! We want to make it fair by giving people time ahead of the competition to get started, that way the moment the competition starts everyone can post what they have. Before, usually whoever posted first would win, but this time, people get a bit more of an even playing ground. :)

1

Are multiple submissions per user allowed? How are you going to send the prizes? Is that competition open to everyone? Will you discriminate against minorities (i.e. age <= 18 or whatever the legal age is in some jurisdiction, location != USA, no street addresses for ppl in rural countries etc)? Most competitions are like that and I haven't really seen one that was truly open. This is especially important on this platform, as it's heavily used by the underprivileged, high-school students, people from various parts of the world etc. Have you taken them into account?

1

@MikolajHolysz Multiple submissions are totally cool! Amazon Gift Cards are the standard prize but we can work with you if it can't be used in your country. Can't discriminate against your age if we don't know your age :P (but no, age doesn't matter).

1

Can it be about things outside coding? Like can you make a slideshow about how to draw something using HTML?

1

@laksh5 Absolutely! :)

A website that teaches you how to do something is totes okay!

1

@timmy_i_chen Also, can you enter more than one entry?

1

How would we use Repl.it to aid our tutorials?

1

When you say anything does it necessarily have to be about programming, and what should we use to create it.

1

@RyanRana It doesn't have to be about programming (though it might help given that the people seeing will be programmers), and you can use Repl Talk to create it! Or write it in markdown: https://dillinger.io/

1

@timmy_i_chen Can we create a tutorial on youtube?

@timmy_i_chen Someone used my last name in a markdow site. That's perfect. XD
