Greek Team Report #4 (28/10 - 03/11)

in #utopian-io4 years ago (edited)

This is the Fourth Greek Team Report coming to you through Aristotle, written by @dimitrisp

Let's start this week's report with our stats for the Week 28/10 - 03/11 with our signature (not-that-fancy) graphs and words.

Contribution Totals

This week we had 8 contributions from 4 out of the 5 members of the Greek Team. Here is a breakdown:

MVP: @dimitrisp had the most contributions.

The average $/word (after removing the 25% of the curation rewards, and the 15% cut of the beneficiaries added to the contribution posts) is $0.04 (previous week's average was $0.05).

Words Translated

This week, the Greek Team translated a total of 8645 words in 4 projects (previous week's figures are 8532 words in 7 projects):

The average wordcount per contribution is 1081 words (previous week's average was 948 words). A breakdown of words per translator can be found in this graph:

MVP: @dimitrisp, with a total of 3361 translated words.


NOTE!:Figures may/may not be wrong, as they are calculated with today's price per contribution and rounded to 2 decimal places. This issue will be rectified when our app is in place and starts taking all information at the time of payout. All money figures are after removing the 25% of the curation rewards, and the 15% cut of the beneficiaries added to the contribution posts.

The total amount of rewards the Greek Team has gotten this week is $322.84 (the previous week's figure was $384.41). As with the previous report, we have 2 graphs for this section, the first one is an average USD per word for each translator:

MVP: This week, we have a 3-way tie between @lordneroo, @ruth-girl & @dimitrisp for the highest reward per word again ($0.04, down from $0.05 on the previous week).

In the second graph, we can see the total amount each user has gotten in total.

MVP: @dimitrisp with $138.98 (previous week's MVP was @dimitrisp with a total of $156.07)

Other info

Due to the change in Utopian's voting bot, @trumpman had a contribution that didn't get an upvote (overall, it is 1 unpaid out of the total 8 contributions).

We also didn't receive a contribution from @katerinaramm this week.

If you would like to see more stats/information, feel free to let us know below in the comments.

App Status

Aristotle, wondering what's going on with his app, read a post that @dimitrisp published earlier today. Here's an excerpt:

The past few days saw a great amount of development happening in more than 18 commits and I can't be more happy with the progress of the App. I implemented automatic fetching contributions from (thanks to @amosbastian for providing an API), finished the weekly reports basic functionality and fixed a couple of bugs.

The app will be put into use soon, he exclaimed.

Curation Trail

Aristotle is upvoting the Greek Team's posts, all posts by @utopian-io, all translation contribution posts and the posts of his supporters (those who delegated some SP to him).

In the past 7 days, Aristotle upvoted 55+ authors on 87+ posts, giving out $1.717+ in total rewards.

The current voting weights are:

  • Translation contributions: 10%/post
  • @utopian-io: 100% upvote on 1 post/day
  • Greek Team: 100% upvote on 1 post/day
  • Delegators: 3% per 10SP delegated on 1 post/day

The upvote for delegators is not guaranteed. Aristotle thought it would be nice to give something back to them, but if the Voting Mana is not enough to upvote the translation contributions, the delegators may not get their upvotes.

We are monitoring Aristotle's Voting Mana, and we barely see it go below 90% (most of the time, it ranges between 97%-100%)

Questionnaire Proposal

This week, Aristotle wrote his proposal for changing the Translations Questionnaire, to fix some issues we've all been facing. Here's an excerpt from the proposal:

The Review Questionnaire is the place where reviewers submit their answers and get the score for a pending contribution. While most categories may have a very streamlined experience with it, the translations' questionnaire has many issues.

The most common complaint about the questionnaire is the difficulty question. There are 4 difficulty levels (Easy, Average, High and Very High) and there is a lot of unfaireness on how each project is scored.

Most projects are rated as "Average Difficulty", even though they aren't, as going for "High" will increase the score dramatically.

Pick of the Week

Each week, Aristotle is going to pick a projects and say a few words about them. We've asked him to prepare a questionnaire for the team, but he said it might take him some time!

Let's have a quick look on his Pick of the Week.

The Curious Expedition (@trumpman)

This is one of the biggest & longest projects the Greek team has picked up so far. @trumpman is in charge of providing us with some hilarious translation, and Aristotle said "I couldn't have picked a better person for this job!"

So far, we have 44 translation parts and we recently reached 50% level of translation (so there's still a lot of work to be done)

The Curious Expedition is a roguelike expedition simulation set in the late 19th century. Together with famous personalities you will venture on unprecedented expeditions to regions never explored before for fame, science and treasures.

It is procedurally generated game with diverse landscapes and precarious challenges for the ambitious explorer. There are a lot of things to do in this game, such as: Survive against attacks, plunder monuments etc. The game was released in September of 2016 on Steam, but development is still going on, adding new features/worlds, as we can see on the project's Github repository

That's it for this week! Aristotle would like to thank you for reading this long wall of text! Until next time...

- @dimitrisp for Aristotle / is still young and small, but we have faith in his potential and great ideas coming from his hard-working team! Thanks to people who have shown trust in him, we have gathered delegations by:

We are thankful for that and we hope to live up to your expectations, guys!

We aspire to become even stronger and manage to give back a piece of the support Utopian has been offering to us and the opensource community.

We are proud to be part of such a huge, community effort and we will keep doing our best, contributing in any way that we can!


As usual, I am impressed with the way you've been able to make these reports more personal, amusing, and informative. Highlighting the pick of the week is a great way to make a weekly release of data more unique and interesting. Very nice job overall!

Please note that while I haven't changed the footer, I am not scoring #iamutopian posts based on the questionnaire. They have their own metric, and that will be the case until we go live with the new guidelines and new questionnaire, which will be comprehensive enough to reflect these types of posts.

Your contribution has been evaluated according to Utopian policies and guidelines, as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.

Wow, I like this summary. There is actually nothing to dislike. Though, I believe that using 3D charts is not the right decision.

Aristotle is upvoting the Greek Team's posts, all posts by @utopian-io, all translation contribution posts and the posts of his supporters (those who delegated some SP to him).

Who is he? Do you mean supporters of utopian-io, aristotle team account or someone else?

We are open to suggestions on the graphs (and pretty much for anything, as we are looking to make our reports even better)

"He" refers to Aristotle (and, that is providing the upvotes). I'll rephrase this in the next report :)

Thank you for your comment and your good words @espoem :)

- @dimitrisp

Thank you & @dimitrisp, I am always very pleased to read your thorough reports!

I would like to mention here that I have been given some time off, due to a very hectic program. The LMs of the team have approved that and I will probably be back contributing in one or two weeks time.

And I forgot to say that I totally agree with Aristotle

"I couldn't have picked a better person for this job!"

!! Well done Trumpman!

We all need a break sometimes, especially if our free time is rare ;)
