This week we had 6 contributions. All 6 reports were scored higher than 0.

Also, we had a staff pick from @blockchainstudio. If you've been following the category closely, the name should not be strange to you. He moves with the grace of a bug spray. He hate bugs so much, he makes it a duty to fix them :)

One of such bugs was the voting power reset error. This had been affecting steemit since the HF20 update. In his report, he observed that -

voting_power is set to 0 for users who haven't voted more than 5 days but had some transactions that affected effective vesting shares (e.g., claim reward, power up, delegations).

This voting_power reset is mainly due to the introduction of voting_manabar at HF20. The contributor provided a fix that rectified this error.

Apart from the staff pick, another contributor - @horpey, made a collection of bugs and unexpected behaviors he found in the test release of eSteem V2. Details of the bugs can be found in this link.

Another amazing report. The post is well-formatted and informative. Also, the provided graphics are accurate. The week seems to be a little bit better compared to the previous week. It's great that all contributions submitted to the category were good enough to receive their appropriate scores.
@blockchainstudio is indeed a good bug-hunter. Considering the numbers of findings he had in the week and the quality of the contributions.

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.

Hi @tykee, thanks for the review. What can I do to get a higher score? Is there something you think I should improve on or a tipic header you think I ought to include in the weekly overviews? Cause I have been receiving this similar score range for some weeks now from you.

Well, the metrics set for Iamutopian post is a little bit sketchy. (Not very perfect) But, you could improve your writing style and grammar to get a better score.

Sachincool have now reviewed 2 contributions (40, 40) with an average score of 40.

Sachincool is a singular noun, and it should be...

Sachincool has reviewed 2 contributions (40, 40) with an average score of 40.

Also, you could add tips for contributors to understand their past errors and how to fix them.
