    Featured PRs:

    I also have few more PRs awaiting review as well as plans for few more feature (content rather) PRs.
    Why do you want to become a developer?:
    I really want to make my imput into development of BS12. The best way I see for this is applying my programming abilities.
    As you can see, I mostly make feature (or rather content) PRs and almost all my fixes are for my own features. I aim to have better fixes/features blanace. My grip on BYOND code isn't complete but I just see it as a reason to dig deeper and get to know it better.

    They are the only one so far that has done more overmap locations. That's a +1 from me.

    As a completely neutral comment, for informational purposes for the deciding party:

    Has recent PRs. Most of it is novel content (although not novel assets & code*). That's good for a rolling average with a 30 day window. Merged PR count (11) and actual involved time (~30 days) are not great though, when compared to other dev applications.

    *For the relevant group of PRs, the vast majority are inclusion of new maps and areas. That's a good thing for overmap. There's a lot of maintenance implicit there and functionally no feature & fix though. Novel code is, at a glance, limited to one recent PR, #19369 (Adds oxygen regenerator device), which is a single machine that mostly follows boilerplate. There's a novel sprite in there too, but it doesn't fit with existing machine sprites' overall style.

    If you just want to contribute, you're good as you are, whole point of having a Github repo is that everyone can contribute without a fancy badge.
    Why go for the badge?

    Okay, that's good point actually. Having badge is nice but contributing is fun for me regardless.
    Please consider my application revoked.
