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!

Steem Engine Tender: A Sidechain Explorer - 0.0.3 - Precision Hardfork Update by @inertia

The main feature in this release is the ability to interpret the new contract actions:

  • tokens.cancelUnstakes
  • tokens.checkPendingUnstakes
  • tokens.delegate
  • tokens.enableDelegation
  • tokens.transferToContract
  • tokens.undelegate
  • tokens.updatePrecision

Most of these are under the hood or haven't actually appeared on the sidechain yet. The main functionality now seen involves precision interpretation and when doing account/symbol search.

STEEM.CRAFT | #4 | Added support for loading of older world versions, biome & gamerule changing functions by @immanuel94

Hello, Steemians and Minecraft players,

it is now already 18 days ago since my last post about changes on STEEM.CRAFT. This is mostly because I needed to find ways how to retrieve older versions of worlds without actually storing extra data to the blockchain. In this contribution post, I want to show you guys world loading of any world revision that happened before, biome- and gamerule changing of the steemworld.

Score distribution in the development category


Number of contributions per weekday


As you can see, Monday was the day with the most activity in the development category. Saturday had a lot less activity, which isn't that surprising of course.

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 62.4 to 62.7 this week, which is a good indication that the quality of contributions has also gone up! Despite the average score going up, the average reward has unfortunately gone down from 19.6 STU to 18.2 STU. 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 14.3 hours to 11.0 hours.

Number of contributions reviewed per week


As you can see, the weekly number of reviews is up from 11 to 19! This seems to be following a trend, as the number of contributions over the last two weeks (30) is also up compared to the two weeks prior to that (17)!


Number of unique contributors per week


With the number of reviews going up this week, it's pretty surprising to see the number of unique contributors down slightly from 14 to 12.

The gang is back -- everyone reviewed something this week.


Number of reviews per weekday


As you can see, Saturday was the day where we reviewed the most contributions in the development category. Sunday was the day where we reviewed the least. I'm getting mixed signals here!

  • None

Also, if you think there is anything that can be worded more clearly, then please let me know!


Hello, @amosbastian. Thank you for sharing the development category weekly update. It is quite impressive to see the uplift in the number of the contribution that got submitted and reviewed on the category.

Good to see the "gang" back, it has always been Helo doing most of the review, good to see that the category saw more active moderators too, this week. Well done. (Very nice looking gang image you have there by the way).

I really hope to see that the team get their hands on the review sheet as well this week to review all pending contributions faster. There is currently a 5 days old dev post on the queue which needs attention ASAP before it reaches the haircut zone.

I look forward to your next weekly overview.
