Thank you for the great picks! Development category continues to soar ... but why no staff picks on development?

Thanks for another staff pick!

Grats @naufal. I agree with the @utopian-io staff. Your proposal on my Task Request for Anole Chrome Extension showed high quality research and excellent forethought.

My colleague and I only thought it didn't quite resemble the requested species of lizard...nevertheless overall it's very strong work and a tough decision.

I hope you'll consider several other task requests I'll have in the near future. It'd be great to work with you soon.

The latest I'm working on is this one, and while I chose to do the graphics myself it definitely shows. I am no designer :)

I will also be posting in #task-documentation. Another area will I need lots of help.

Its okay, sorry if my work does not match what you want, but I have done my best. I'll will definitely join on your next task. :)
