This is my first weekly overview post of the Analysis category at @utopian-io. The report aims to provide insight into the topics covered, the scores provided, staff picks (if any), and a look at how the current week has fared against recent weeks gone by. Any other work taking place and my personal thoughts in relation to the category will also be included.
If you have any suggestions for additional information that could be included in this report, please comment below

This weeks contributions
|lokomotion||Analysis of the savings feature||76||3|
|paulag||Steem Bidbot business income analysis||74||28|
|miniature-tiger||Steem dapps analysis September 2018||79||12|
lokomotion's analysis on the usage of the 'Savings' feature in the Steem 'Wallet' concludes that this feature is used by < 20 of all accounts, and has more usage by smaller accounts. The reviewer suggests that larger accounts may prefer liquidity over security, as any savings take 72 hours to withdraw. This contribution scored well in all areas.
paulag takes a look at the income of Bidbots in 2018 and reports that '26.21% of Curation Rewards claimed are paid to Bidbots' and 'on average for the year to date 19.01% of all Authors rewards claimed were sent to Bidbots'. She also presents the fall in Bidbot usage, but finds that ' 19.5% of all vests paid from the rewards pool (in 2018) ended up in the hands of Bidbot owners'. Much the same as the first contribution, this piece of work also scored well in each metric.
miniature-tiger provides a monthly analysis on the state of play with regards to the dApps. This includes a look at the popularity of each app with regards to author, post counts and a focus on dApps showing good growth, and a look at new dApps arriving on the Steem blockchain. The reviewer wrote that 'while not necessarily needed for the distribution of the dapps, the analysis of the general posting and payout activity across the HF is a great addition to put the results into context'. Again, this contribution scored well in all of the assessment criteria.
In summary, each contribution scored well and was given a mark between 74 and 79. All three contributions were 'based on a similar analysis' which likely prevented the totals from being higher. That said, all three were of a solid standard.
Analysis and visual reporting
The aim of this section is to represent the current weeks activity along with a recent set of data. Initially, this data has been collated from the previous 4 weeks (including this past week), but this data-set will grow as we move forward.
Week Average Score and number of Contributions
An average score of 76.3 this week is almost 2% higher than the four week average of 74.7. Three contributions is equal to the four week average.
Contributor Totals and Average Score
paulag heads the contributor table with 5 contributions over the past four weeks, but 4 contributors show a higher average score for their work.
Contributions that did not receive a score are not included in the charts above.
Review Totals by Reviewer (Scored/Unscored)
Two reviewers assessed all twelve contributions that received a score in the past four weeks, crokkon taking the lead on the only un-scored submission.
All contribution categories
This final chart gives a weekly comparison of all the @utopian-io contribution categories. 9 categories received less than 10 contributions this week, and Analysis was one of those. With an average contribution score of 76 for the week, Analysis was the 4th best scoring category.
This week I have been working on the tasks assigned to redevelop the contributor and reviewer guides for the Analysis category. I have recently altered the status of these tasks to 'done'. https://utopian-io.atlassian.net/browse/UC-114
This is the first time I have used this 'agile' tool and I found it useful in keeping track of tasks. However, I suspect there will be minor edits to make to the document, both in the text and with regards to the amendments 'on the right hand side'. I think the document is readable by all, and so please take a look if you are interested in the updated guidelines for the category.
When this work is completed and signed off, these guidelines will then feed into the task to update the reviewer questionnaire. I am looking forward to working on this and hope the output will give the moderators greater flexibility when scoring contributions.
In less than two weeks, I will be attending Steemfest 3, and hope to meet more of the @utopian-io team.
