    [Romina Suarez, Ushahidi] No. All I mean is that during internships, you'll be expected to write about your experience (by outreachy even) and it's worth mentioning it
    [Romina Suarez, Ushahidi] > or this is what we need to do during internship or after internship
    exactly. During.

    Hello everyone! I have a question regarding this channel. Is this channel only for Outreachy applicants? (I am not one and was just wondering where I could ask for a review on a pull request?)
    Renu Jain
    @renujain31
    Hey @AngadSethi. No it isn't only for Outreachy applicants. You can ask for pull request reviews here. The deadline for Outreachy is 31st and that's why I guess you might be seeing too much questions related to applications.

    Hey @AngadSethi you can also ping to mentors in PR comments also!

    @AngadSethi
    Perfect. Thanks @renujain31 @Sunairaa :)

    Hi everyone, could someone help me figure out the bit about the internship timeline?
    Onyee Peace
    @onyeepeace
    @OluyemisiA The timeline is a rough estimate of your intended weekly contribution to the internship task. Essentially, it is a weekly calendar of how you plan to work on the internship tasks.

    Sameroom
    @sameroom-bot
    [Romina Suarez, Ushahidi] hey folks. Sorry no, you just need to apply through outreachy for the Ushahidi project. @Anna will drop a link in a sec
    [Romina Suarez, Ushahidi] Thanks Anna!

    Hello everyone, what happens if your pull request isn't merged on time? The dateline is just around the corner and my pull request has not been merged yet.

    Hello everyone, what happens if your pull request isn't merged on time? The dateline is just around the corner and my pull request has not been merged yet.

    still you need to add in contributions and I guess mentor will approve / merge before deadline!

    Good luck!

    @sameroom-bot
    [Anna Iosif, Ushahidi] @clerryha_twitter Its alright, you can still record the contribution on the Outreachy page. There is no requirements that it should be merged before deadline thumbsup emoji:skin-tone-3:.

    Thank you @sameroom-bot for the clarity!

    Hey, it's me again. In the application form, they are asking this question "Please describe your experience before this Outreachy application period with this free software community. You can describe your prior experiences as both a user and a contributor" Does this mean we describe our experience with this community during our contribution time or before we started making contributions?

    @clerryha_twitter , this means before we started making a contribution / before outreachy application time period.

    Harriet Clerry
    @clerryha_twitter
    Okay. So that means if you do not have any prior experience you should state it as that, right?
    Sameroom
    @sameroom-bot
    [Romina Suarez, Ushahidi] Yes. Exactly.

    Hello.. when I was adding my contributions one of my contributions showing double (duplicated) how to delete that? I didn't see any delete option there?
    Mariam Adedeji
    @mariehposa
    Hi Sunairaa, maybe you should try and replace it with another contribution that is yet to be filled, or just empty all the fields and save.
    Sunairaa
    @Sunairaa
    @mariehposa i have added all contributions then I noticed this issue and can make fields empty and save because some fields are required this can not make it to save!

    Hi

    @Ifycode
    Maybe you can just indicate there that it's a contribution you were trying to delete but couldn't since there is no delete button.
    That is if you don't have any contribution to add yet.
    Sunairaa
    @Sunairaa
    yess that can make sense!
    Obiagba Mary Ifeoma
    @Ifycode
    And when ever you have a new contribution, you can update it.
    Ok @Sunairaa
    Sunairaa
    @Sunairaa
    Thanks @Ifycode

    Just found out that you have to contact them here if you want to remove contributions: https://www.outreachy.org/contact/organizers/ . They are yet to implement that feature.

    @helen-ndip
    @rowasc @Angamanga thank you all for your support. Its been a great experience working with this community. @Sunairaa @Ifycode you all have been great so far and your questions and answers helped me a lot. I have some few pending pull requests though. Is it ok to continue working on them even after the deadline?
    Onyee Peace
    @onyeepeace
    @helen-ndip Yes, you can still work on them
    Sunairaa
    @Sunairaa
    @helen-ndip you're welcome
    Yessss you can still contribute
    All the best to every outreachy candidate.. Though it's hard to wait for final result but hope for best..
    Learned a lot from this supporting community🙂
    Obiagba Mary Ifeoma
    @Ifycode
    Really @helen-ndip It's a great experience. We kept helping each other when any issue pops up and kept learning through the process. The end of the contribution stage shouldn't stop us from contributing, this is what I think.
