Utopian - Has the right been abused?
I wrote this article a few days ago, hesitant to publish.Because it has nothing to do with me.
I have been engaged to my new projects, which kept me busy these days. After utopian changed its rules to only accept the translation on github, I decided to write a post to teach how to submit contribution to the translation of github article. I have searched in advance to see whether anyone else has shared this before in order to prevent duplication. Fortunately, I have found @ daijia has already written this. Thanks for sharing.
However, When I finished reading this post, I found a really funny thing that @daijia ‘s post was not approved by utopian. The reject reason is that is is not in accordance with the rules: the post need to be written in English. Although it is rejected by the rules, I still have to admit that it is a helpful article.
Since I was quite bored, I kept browsing the most popular projects on github: https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en. I do agree that this is a good project.
There are dozens of Pull Requests every day, and I could imagine how busy the project reviewers would be.
Then, I focused on something really interesting.
From the team members who are responsible for the uploading and operating merges, a familiar avatar image: omero350 (@ jmromero) has cached my eyes. For those who have done translation work should be quite familiar with him. He is also a utopian moderator. After seeing this, I have a kind of paparazzi impulse that I could dig some more problems here.
After I browsed carefully. This time, I found some more familiar names, ruahtheking (@ruah), rosatravels (@rosatravels), sunray-steemit (@sunray) and many others more. . .
Moderators and supervisor are all involved in this project. So high enthusiasm.
Uh. . . Probably everyone recently had an idea of contributing to this open source project so they all joined passionately. (or perhaps recently, the income of the translation contribution from approved posts are higher than usual).
Now it is time to start to double check each contribution (listed in no particular order as below).
From the , you could see the time from commit to Merged:
[5 hours and 40 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/8
[2 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/279
[1 minute] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/98
[5 hours and 33 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/139
[17 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/157
[1 hour and 55 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/159
[8 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/241
[59 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/302
[16 minutes] https://github.com/ancap-ch/from-en/pull/318
I am not going to find the PR for ruah. Go find it yourself if you are interested.
I just listed some of the data. As we can see from the data above, the longest processing time from commit to Merged is 5 hours 40 minutes, and the shortest is only 1 minute.
I have to ask, what can we do in only 1 minute?
I might just type in 50 words, but I'm pretty sure that I can not read 1,000 words in a minute, let alone reviewing 1,000 words.
I am thinking about a question:
If this review could be well finished within 1 minute,then considered as a contribution to utopian, and gained an upvote, what is this?
Is it too irresponsible to approve without full time reading?
These moderators are cheated to approve contributions from each other. Is it a violation of the original intention of utopian?
I even think this is an insult to utopian! @elear @ned what do you think?
Some people may believe that I was finding fault deliberately. I don’t care what the others think about me. I just want everyone to get what they deserve on utopian for their contribution.
If there are too many unfair things on utopian, utopian will go downhill, maybe towards demise.
This is not what we want to see, nor what @elear or @ned wants to see.
If utopian become a worthless project, I think the steem power will be undelegated in the near future. Will utopian be as brilliant as it is now without the the steem power delegated?
这不是我们想看到的，应该也不是 @elear @ned 想看到的。
