A bit disappointed with the number of Analysis contributions this week. Hopefully things will pick up again soon.

I wonder if the #iamutopian posts, although not a category as such, could be listed also?



What would like to see with the #iamutopian posts included among the Utopian contributions? Although it is managed as another category internally, these posts are part of the Utopian content and as such, they are resteemed by the main account to include in the feed.


Just how many are being produced each week in the first instance I guess :)


Well, actually the number was included in the stats originally, but I removed it as the other numbers were not fetched correctly.

If I am not wrong, there were 4 posts this week and 2 in the previous (first) one. Although we would like to see many more posts produced by the Utopian members, it's been still an optional way of sharing the experience and tasks in Utopian.


ahh ok.

Yes I like the idea around the tag and hope to see more content in this area.

Thanks for the replies :)

Great progress

Wow my Post is the only staffpicked post that wasn't upvoted yet, I'm special! :)
... but that does give great opportunity to clever curators! ;D

Thanks for the good work as always! :)

Also thank you @stoodkev (and @steem-plus in general) for taking this serious and fixing the bug ASAP.



I believe the issue was resolved after notifying us in Discord. Though, sometimes it may happen that the post is listed here even before it is voted by Utopian.


Thanks for your intervention that allowed us to fix quickly this stupid mistake!

I am glad that we could include the release updates from some of the interesting projects that joined Utopian. I truly wish that the quality of the writing could be on par with them in general, not only in the blog category. But I understand that writing may not be the most favourite thing for everyone, or they don't have a friend that could proofread their texts before publishing them.

Therefore I recommend everyone to check those posts and perhaps you could see how your posts could look like.
