As we can see in the charts, the number of contributions is decreasing over the weeks but the average score is increasing.
The number of contributions is higher than previous months but it needs to go up again.
The average score is not the best but it is acceptable.
Most of the reviews of this week were made by @syedumair.
We did not have a Staff Pick this week.

Do you remember the tiny prize that we had in the contest? Well, we have big (big) news.

Spread the word
Make a post about the contest, add some info about Utopian and the Suggestions Category and paste the link in comments. I will send some liquid STEEM to the best one.

Disclaimer: The prize is taken from my personal account. This is an unofficial contest. It is only for the Suggestions category. You must not complain to Utopian about this contest. If something is wrong with the points, or if the rules are not clear, you should write to me, not to Utopian.

Common mistakes and how to fix them


The aim of this section is to show you the most common mistakes found this week. Followed by a short description and tips when applicable. Usually, I split the section in two: Contributions with a score of 25 or less and Contributions with a score of 50 or less.

1 - Contributions with a score of 25 or less

1.1 - The repository have not received any program code updates in the last 6 months

As you may know, repositories must have program code updates in the last 6 months or their could be considered as abandoned.

Contributions to repositories that have not received any program code updates for longer than 6 months, will not be eligible for potential reward. Github Integration Policy

If you have problems in looking for valid repositories I recommend you to read this post. Also, check my weekly reports. Tthere you will find interesting projects with valid repositories.

2 - Contributions with a score of 50 or less

2.1 - The impact on the functionality and usability of the project is low

If the overall of your post is excellent, but your idea has little impact on the functionality and/or usability of the project, you will get a few point less. Try to suggest unique, original and useful features.

Interesting open source projects
