Intro

This is a repl created by I(Whippingdot) and the Repl-it-Coders team for repl.it. We created this because repl.it helped us through the pandemic and so I felt like I wanted to thank repl.it. This project is a website in which there is a posts page for the best posts of the year. The home page has a small note for repl.it, and finally there is the timeline page in which there is a timeline of all the announcements created by repl.it this year.

Repo

You can find the repo here and you can star if you like.

Suggestions

We wanted to have a suggestions page on the website where you could suggest features to repl.it but we couldn't finish it in time. I couldn't figure out how to do it so it never got finished. We will work on the suggestions page so it works but for now, to suggest a feature on repl.it create a comment on this share post, and to suggest a feature on GitHub create an issue.

Contribution

It is true that I and my org(Repl-it-Coders) created this project but I wanted to give credit to the people in the org that helped:

@Whippingdot / Me: I did most CSS(except hard parts) and I did a lot of the typing on pages, hence the 'I's on some pages.

isaiah08: He helped with the nodejs at the start and he and me planned the whole project

@ColePete : He helped with creating all the initial files and finding the bugs in the project.

@SixBeeps: He/She helped with fixing the bug where linking to the CSS file would not work. This was a huge problem and I thank SixBeeps for fixing this problem. He/She also helped add the favicon.

@Coder100: He created his .eslintrc.js file in this project. I don't know what it does but he still did something which I think helped the project.

@TsunamiOrSumth: He created the favicon for our GitHub org and for all our websites. He did some photoshopping and brought us this awesome favicon.

@EpicRaisin: He helped add the favicon in the website so it works. This was a last-minute change, thank you.

These are all the people I know of who helped but if you helped and you were in the org please comment down below/Create an issue

GitHub Org

If you want to join this GitHub org(Repl-it-Coders) please tell me your GitHub account username below. One thing to note is that it says I can see your IP address when you join but after lots of inspection I could not find anyone's IP. The only thing you should be cautious about is that I can see your country.

Bye

That is all, thank you for taking the time to read this post. I worked really hard on this(especially the timeline which took over 3 hours) and I appreciate you reading this whole thing I wrote. Bye!

Smart0ne (743)

BD103 (139)

I guess I'll join the repl coders org. My username is BD103.

Is anyone else a little scared that this year is called "2020 won"?

Whippingdot (652)

Adding you, what languages do you know? We have teams. @BD103

Whippingdot (652)

go here. I invited you to the org. Accept the join invite thing. For now you will be in the python team and the Web Dev team. You can request to join the other teams too if you want. Do not create your own teams too. @BD103

BD103 (139)

Nice. Python and Web Dev sound awesome! Thanks for the invite.
@Whippingdot

Whippingdot (652)

Welcome, we also have Java, node, C++, Rust, and Fortran. You want to join any of those?? @BD103

BD103 (139)

Nah. I'm good for now, but thx! @Whippingdot
Btw, I'm working on updating some of the repos, if that's okay. I'm going to assign you to some of the prs. Hope you don't mind. :)

Whippingdot (652)

I don't mind, but I only have max 40 minutes left online. If you want me to review the prs then make the changes quickly @BD103

Whippingdot (652)

It works, join again, it slow, but it works. Repl's error. Please join. Don't fork your own thing, or else we might push changes after you push changes meaning everything gets disrupted @BD103

BD103 (139)

I made my own branch, so I'm in a closed environment. Plus, what's up with the slow loading time? Is that replit or something else? @Whippingdot

Whippingdot (652)

replit. Also I am checking out your CSS changes now. When I saw the link you linked to the CSS looked horrible but let us see. @BD103

BD103 (139)

Ok. Tell me what you think. I can adjust the color scheme if you don't like it. @Whippingdot

Thank you for this!

Whippingdot (652)

Welcome. Thank you for creating this awesome website @amasad.

Silently to self: Les GOO!! I got noticed by the CEO of repl.it 🎉🎉💃💃🎈🥳🥳

tickedoffsquid (17)

Also, being able to see IPs really isn' that bad... it's how most websites determine users anyway.

tickedoffsquid (17)

Yo, I'd like to join the coders org. Main areas of skill are in Python, although I am still somewhat skilled in C++.

tickedoffsquid (17)

@Whippingdot account username is tickedoffsquid, don't actually use github much but I can start to!

CyberHacker101 (126)

Great stuff, but the note is VERRRRY hard to read.

Whippingdot (652)

I know, I got that suggestion. We are making changes currently and we are going to re-release with more features soon. Then you will be able to read the note. Sorry...very sorry. @CyberHacker101

Whippingdot (652)

You like the CSS other than that? @BD103 is trying to remodel the whole website. @CyberHacker101

CyberHacker101 (126)

yup, everything is great but can you tell @BD103 to add some pizazz to the repl @Whippingdot

BD103 (139)

Hah. Whippingdot doesn't have to tell me. I already know :) @CyberHacker101

BD103 (139)

Though... question.
What would you suggest to improve the style? @CyberHacker101

CyberHacker101 (126)

idk just add something that gets the eye. For example "yellow
On the other hand, since yellow is the most visible color of all the colors, it is the first color that the human eye notices." - Google @BD103

BD103 (139)

Yes, but yellow also strains the eye. I can include it, but I need a theme, not a splash of eye breaking colors. @CyberHacker101

CyberHacker101 (126)

lol, give me a moment I'm getting millions of pings @BD103

CyberHacker101 (126)

From lots of apps and strangers @Whippingdot

Whippingdot (652)

ohhhh i thought on repl.it. i was getting sad cause i was being left out. we are the strangers right @CyberHacker101

Cherrlyn (2)

if this is a stupid question, I'M SORRRYYY! but suggestions are accepted here right?
i just wanted to point out that the contrast between the background colour and the text colour in 'best posts:A note' er is kinda hurting my eyes. just putting it out there just in case its something other people experience.
maybe go for a softer but dark themed background that doesnt clash so bluntly with the text colour.

Whippingdot (652)

Ya suggestions are accepted. I will change the website, thanks for your suggestion. @Cherrlyn

elburg (41)

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

This is great! Also, my GitHub username is also AmazingMech2418, so can I join? LOL!

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

@AmazingMech2418 Also, for favicons,

<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico"></link>
Whippingdot (652)

ya thanks, we are editing the repl. Sorry. SOme thing might be messed up, I didn't realize you get the changes. I will revert to the working version. I am inviting you to the org. @AmazingMech2418

Whippingdot (652)

go https://github.com/Repl-it-Coders to accept. ALso what teams do you want. I added you to nodejs and web dev @AmazingMech2418

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

@Whippingdot Yeah. LOL! C++ and Python more than Rust, but I also sometimes do Rust. Good language by the way! Also, I'm creating a Fortran team. LOL! (remember my "Pi in As Many Languages As Possible" project? I learned a lot of languages through that... Also, I think a Go team would be good too!)

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

@Whippingdot Also, can we add Assembly? Though I'm not sure since there are some NASM-AT&T rivalries... (*cough* @firefish )

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

@Whippingdot Also, check out my GitHub profile for a full list. :D

Whippingdot (652)

maybe not. If I get more requests yes. LOL. @AmazingMech2418

Whippingdot (652)

Do you want to be added to java? @AmazingMech2418

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

@Whippingdot Yeah. LOL! I want to be added to Java too.

Whippingdot (652)

yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Try not to create too many teams @AmazingMech2418 you created the Fortran thing or whatever

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

@Whippingdot Okay. LOL! But we nEeD Fortran. Fortran is too amazing to not have a team. LOL!

zplusfour (914)

@AmazingMech2418 link element has no end element smh

AmazingMech2418 (1082)

@ZDev1 Well, that only works because we use HTML, not XHTML... You could also do <link/> to close it without a separate closing tag, can use a full closing tag, or can just not have a closing tag with it. Since the content doesn't matter, any of these will work. Same with <br/>/<br>/<br></br>.

zplusfour (914)

@AmazingMech2418 oh yes
thanks for letting me know!

TsunamiOrSumth (555)

sorry if im being a killjoy, but you spelled 'crisis' chrisis

Whippingdot (652)

Where, can you fix it? You are on the project. @TsunamiOrSumth

Whippingdot (652)

Thanks, read the GitHub part of this post I just added. Tell me ur GitHub username if you want to join. @FloCal35
