Creator Quests

Only one submission per seeker is allowed for each quest. You can edit or re-submit a different repo during an active quest.
🖖 Welcome Seeker.
You have been invited to participate in a Quine Quest as a Seeker ⚔️ What is a Seeker, you ask?
Seekers are the force that helps keep the open-source tech debt under control by solving issues that others dare not even look at.
Seekers are the ones who show us the way by coding up bold and fresh new ideas.
Seekers are the future of the open-source software economy.
We salute you and welcome you to our guild 🫡

Workflow for seekers:

  1. 1.
    At 12:00pm UTC (midday) on the Quest’s Start Date we’ll start accepting submissions for the active Quest.
  2. 2.
    You will have two weeks to create a new repo that addresses the challenge of the Quest and submit it to Quine ✨
  3. 3.
    Over the course of the challenge we’ll be checking on the relevant Discord channel to make sure you’re making progress 💪 Don’t hesitate to ask questions to us or to other members of the channel!
  4. 4.
    At 11:59 UTC (midday) on the Quest’s End Date we’ll close submissions and start computing the winners. As soon as you upload the repo, the community will be able to comment and vote for it. You are encouraged to also vote on other people’s repos!
  5. 5.
    On End date we will rank each repo according to the DevRank of the supporters (voters). Winners will be announced on Discord and via email.

What are the rules?

  1. 1.
    The content you submit to a Creator Quest must be original code.
  2. 2.
    You are allowed to generate code with LLMs and to borrow snippets from StackOverflow, but the repo’s idea must be yours and yours alone. If we detect plagiarism from other codebase, we will delete the repo from Quine and remove you from Quests.
  3. 3.
    The repo submitted must be created on or after the Start Date. We will check the created_at field of the repo using GitHub’s API to validate this.
  4. 4.
    Your project must have a README and must clearly explain what the project does and how someone can run it or install it.
  5. 5.
    The work you submit must be your own. Team submissions are not allowed (yet).
Whilst not compulsory, we strongly encourage you to also record a short Loom or Youtube of your finished project, demo'ing it and explaining how it works and share a link in your Quine repo description. Alternatively, you can serve a working demo from a url and share that instead.
