Will I contribute to a Github Repository on every day in March?
resolved Mar 31

Update 2: Thanks to y'alls' comments, I realized that it wasn't recognizing my private commits because my email didn't match. It has been fixed, and I'll likely focus on my original project, but might still contribute to NBA_Parlay on the side.

Update: Just learned that GitHub doesn't show contributions to private repositories, so I created a public repository for a side project, and I'll be contributing to it here:(https://github.com/houstonEuler/NBA_Parlay).

I have projects I've been wanting to build for awhile, but have failed to regularly contribute and end up abandoning them. I don't want that to happen again, so I created this market as a way to motivate myself to code more regularly. This is my current contribution chart on GitHub.

If I miss a single day, this market will resolved NO.

If I do code and commit every day, I'll post my chart at the end of March as proof.

I will only be betting YES on this market, since it's for motivation purposes. I'll also ask the mods to unrank it.

You can have GitHub show contributions to private repositories on your profile. They will appear as "<user> made contributions to <number> private projects" or something like that.

@Pykess Thanks! I think it wasn't working for me because my Git email didn't match my GitHub.

bought Ṁ10 YES

I did this once and made a lot of progress! It helped to have a list of tasks, both big and small, so that I always knew where to get started, even if I just had five minutes.

@traders In case anyone was betting because I didn't know private repository commits wouldn't show up on the contributions chart, I've created a new public project that I'll be working on.

I'll wait a day before I make any more YES purchases.

I'm happy to reimburse anyone who lost mana because of my ignorance, and the way the market was initially defined.

@houstonEuler It can show private commits! There's a setting for it somewhere

Thanks! I think I didn't have my email set in Git to match my GitHub, which is why it wasn't working for me.

@Joshua Can you one of the mods please un-rank this market?

@houstonEuler No problem! Out of curiousity, if you duplicate an unranked market is it also unranked? I know it is for me but I'm not sure if that's because I'm a mod.

@Joshua I never thought to try that, but I'll give it a whirl next time. Thanks!
