>Well, actually I tried to submit 3 themes on 15th of October. 

But this is a violation of the rules of the contest. Themes had to be done specifically for the contest on deadline time. You can't just take and upload those themes that you created earlier. This is at least not fair, because you had any time to create them, but the rest had only 2 weeks, and as a maximum - these are violations of the rules of the contest (if I understand correctly).

What is the point of the contest, if people like me, who made the themes specifically for the contest for a limited period, have to compete with those who made the themes before the contest and who had unlimited time for this? It is just pointless.
Really like the Firewatch theme even though it's a bit aggressive on the colors. But well matched colors anyway. However, what's up with that blue color for current chat selection? Seems a bit out of place.

The latest TG update broke down some parts of my themes(some variables were renamed and a couple of new ones added). I'll gladly set/update the the newly added variables when allowed :)
How did you manage to do 2 additional themes for 2 OS a day before the deadline (because the message about what can be done up to 5 themes instead of the 1st one appeared less than a day before the deadline)? This is ABSOLUTELY impossible. I have quite reasonable suspicions that these themes are simply taken from the Internet and slightly changed for participation in the contest.

P.S. Sorry for my English

Well, actually I tried to submit 3 themes on 15th of October. Then I figured out that it only accepted the first theme link only.
I pinged a couple of TG Admins with the question if I can submit multiple links. I wasn’t the only one who asked them :) After a while they allowed to submit 5 links.

Originally I planned to use phone numbers of my friends to submit the other 2 themes.

Hope makes sense.


Ps I see you posted the same message to some other participants :)

Invite all the creators of the themes to join in the chat. We will communicate and create new themes 👉
Not bad 👍🏻

Thank you! Still feel bad for those broken variables on macos, though. +1 for you too

Ну... неплохо, наверное) Хотя цвета мне не очень нравятся.
Very good theme but the background of the count of unmute chats should be the same color as the navigation bar. Anyway, for me your theme is best in comparison to the others. I hope you win

Thank you for checking out my themes. Even in the default classic theme these colors are different.

I’m already planning to submit some fixes as soon as I can but these badges are gonna stay the way they currently are. I might try to experiment with colors though.
Nobody added any issues yet...
