In summary, the contributions were more than last week. Last week, we had just 1 bug report and this week we have 5. Although, out of the 5 that were received this week, only 2 were scored higher than 0.

@tdre's report on how freecodecamp rejects a clearly expected answer and does not credit the user for a correct response was scored zero because the project repo is not included in the bug-hunting whitelist. The moderator explained the reason in his review:

Although your contribution is well explained and goes into a good amount of detail, unfortunately, this contribution is not suitable for scoring due to the project not being listed on the Utopian Bug Hunting whitelist.

@blockchainstudio's report was scored zero for the same reason as tdre's while @anthonyadavisii's was because his bug report was a duplicate of an existing issue.

In other news, the category is looking forward to implementing new guidelines to replace the existing whitelist that will let contributors submit bug reports to projects outside the steem and the whitelist.

While the new guidelines are yet to be implemented, bug-hunters and open source enthusiasts looking to help open source projects, please take a look at our whitelist of projects that you can submit bug reports for:


If you wish to have your open source projects added to our whitelist you can contact us on our help channel at our discord server. You can also leave your questions and comments below :)




Hello @fego,

Thank you for providing the Bug hunting weekly overview. The report is well written and informative. It was pleasant reading through.
It appears there were few quality contributions to the category this week, considering 5 reports and 3 received 0 scores. However, the sum is quite better than the previous week.
I got a misconception about this part in this overview. You stated At the time of writing this report the bug received have been fixed by the PO. I don't understand the ''bug'' you were referring to. anthonyadavisii bug report?

Please note that while the CM hasn't changed the footer, I am not scoring #iamutopian posts based on the questionnaire. They have their own metric, and that will be the case until we go live with the new guidelines and new questionnaire, which will be comprehensive enough to reflect these types of posts.

Your contribution has been evaluated according to Utopian policies and guidelines, as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.

Thank you for your review, @tykee! Keep up the good work!

Yep, was pretty disappointed after the second bug report I submitted goes unvoted. My last was a Beem Python issue related to Hard Fork 20 but, coincidentally, because of the voting power reset with HF20 I didn't get a vote even though it was a good report.

This time the problem was I searched for "follower" when I checked for existing issues prior to drafting a report. It was after that I saw Pjau submitting for following. I actually added some testing and additional details so sucks to get a goose egg. Meh, live and learn I guess.

I will advise that the bug hunting category be amended to make it clear that reports on similar issues will not be scored.

Tough luck, deeply sorry about that.

The main reason behind making a bug post is to bring to the attention of the PO or willing contributors, the presence of the bug. This is why we ask that contributors first check the github issue tracker for duplicates before opening a new issue and also before posting to utopian. The report is of no use to the PO if s/he is already aware of the bug from a much earlier ticket.

I believe the new updates to the guideline would curb issues like this. I looked at the report you submitted, it was well detailed and exactly what is expected of a bug post.

Do not be deterred by this, we look forward to seeing more of your posts, and hopefully scoring them :)
