Congratulations to naviji & anjulalk for getting selected in GSoC’20 all the best with your projects.
I would like to thank the community and everyone who I have interacted with here, I only have pleasant things to say about you all @rabeehrz @coderrsid @kowalskidev @xplosionmind @johano @nr458h @dpoulton @giteshsharma @CalebJohn
My project proposal was to incorporate inline-markdown-editor like typora in Joplin, which did not get selected, I do hope someone incorporates that in the future.
Maybe my proposal was a bit too ambitious for my own good.
I also made a rough implementation of it in two days time while I was drafting my proposal.

I really thought I had something special here, working three months solely on this, maybe I could have made it very similarly to typora maybe better, I might make my own project about it this summer who knows?
Heres a link to my proposal if anyone interested in seeing it.
Obviously I’m very disappointed sad and heart-broken that I did not get in, but it totally fine, you win some you lose some in life. But on the contrary, I’m very motivated to learn, to improve myself, I seriously love the idea of open-source and I’ll keep contributing to it, especially to an open-source community where the mentor treats the people who want to help better.
What lies ahead for me in Joplin? I don’t know, I’ll just take a step back and reflect on these past 3 months, certainly right now it feels like I wasted my past three months, mostly because I did not get what I’ve been working my socks off for, In hindsight, I would have been better off learning data structure and algorithms that trying to improve Joplin because a majority of my Pull Request was not even acknowledged by the mentor, nor where they reviewed.
I hope they do take this feedback and treat applicants better next year because even though how much I can sugarcoat it, I did not really have a very good experience, far from it I felt dejected most of the time because the mentor did not respond back to any request, but I hope they do learn, & next year not treat people who are trying to help like they did this year.
