This is a weekly, semi-automated post where I will show some statistics and graphs of the development category. It will also serve as a showcase for the staff picks and task requests that were made in the current week. If you have any suggestions or things you'd like to see in this post, then please let me know!

Note: my droplet crashed and some of the data is messed up, which could cause some of the information below to not be completely acccurate.

Score distribution in the development category


Number of contributions per weekday


Tuesday and Wednesday were both relatively active. The rest of the week was a bit less, as usual.

Average score, reward (STU) and time before review (hours) per week

Time before review is the number of hours between the creation of the post and the time it is reviewed by a moderator.

The average score of contributions has gone up from 69.2 to 73.1 this week, which is a good indication that the quality of contributions has also gone up! The average reward, just like the average score, has also gone up (from 21.3 STU to 22.3 STU), which is of course great for the contributors. Finally, the number of hours it takes for us to get to a contribution and review it (on average) has gone down a bit from 13.4 hours to 11.0 hours.

Number of contributions reviewed per week


As you can see, the weekly number of submitted contributions is up from 8 to 17! This seems to be following a trend, as the number of contributions over the last two weeks (25) is also up compared to the two weeks prior to that (18)!


Number of unique contributors per week


With the number of reviews going up this week it's obviously not that surprising that the number of unique contributors has also gone up slightly from 11 to 15 this week, but of course this is still very cool nonetheless!

Nice overview @amosbastian. 16 contributions from 15 unique contributors this week is definitely a good number compared to some of the other categories. The average score is impressive as well. Meaning that most of the reviewed contributions were at least above par in time of quality which is great.

Sorry about your droplet. Have you managed to find the cause and fixed the crash issue?

I want to suggest that you include a new section in your overview: "Tips." This should contain insightful comments or thoughts which will allow people contributing to the development category to improve. This is of course not mandatory, just thought it would be very helpful.

Looking forward to your next report.
