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!

Score distribution in the development category


Number of contributions per weekday


As you can see, Sunday was the day with the most activity in the development category, which is pretty surprising to me! I guess everyone had been working on something and decided to post about it before the next week started?

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.

Unfortunately the average score of contributions is down from 73.4 to 63.5 this week. The average reward has also gone down from 26.3 STU to 20.7 STU. Of course with the average score also going down, this was to be expected. Finally, the number of hours it takes for us to get to a contribution and review it (on average) has gone down a lot from 18.4 hours to 15.0 hours.

Number of contributions reviewed per week


As you can see, the weekly number of reviews is down from 10 to 7. Unfortunately this seems to be following a trend, as the number of contributions over the last two weeks is also down from 27, in the two weeks prior, to 17.


Number of unique contributors per week


With the number of reviews going down this week it's unfortunately not that surprising to see the number of unique contributors go down slightly from 10 to 6 either.

One of the OG contributors, @mkt, is back with vengeance! It's great to see him updating some of his old projects, and also fixing some stuff in other people's projects.


  • @helo reviewed 2 contributions with an average score of 73.0.
  • @justyy reviewed 5 contributions with an average score of 47.0.

Amazingly Helo isn't #1 this week. It feels like years since this last happened! lol

Number of reviews per weekday


As you can see, Tuesday was the day where we reviewed the majority of the contributions in the development category. Pretty funny to see how basically everything was reviewed in one day. If I recall correctly this happened last week as well.

Number of contributions reviewed per moderator

Hello, @amosbastian. Thank you for the weekly report. Sad to see that the category got fewer contribution this week, compared to last week. On the other hand, it is good to see new faces contributing to Utopian. I hope they engage more on contributing which may also motivate others to contribute as well.

Thank you for your review, @knowledges! Keep up the good work!

"vengeance" lol... Not really. :P Well, these numbers are interesting. Things have changed a bit. I'm almost a bit shocked. Most active contributor with two very small contributions.
It seems like my little mini contributions actually had an affect on the statistics. Average score and reward both went down. And I have two more unmerged pull requests like this in the pipeline. I'm just waiting for the moderator comment that says: "Your contributions are rather small. You can combine them into one more elaborated post to earn bigger rewards." And yes, maybe I can make some contributions of larger scale in the future. I'm interested in giving @the-magic-frog a bit of attention again or I could improve my Vue.js Steem plugin. We'll see.
But it feels good to dive into all this here again a little bit. So interesting what's happening.

I just like the saying ;) but yeah things have been pretty quiet recently. I've personally been too busy with irl stuff to post or review as much as I used to, and I guess plenty of others are in the same situation... especially with the price of STEEM falling so much.

Happy to join utopian community and work together on open source world 😀
