This week we had 6 contributions and only 2 were upvoted by Utopian.
The average score was 58, which is the second highest of the four last months. And almost all the contributors were new users in the Suggestions category or at least not active in the previous months. 
We had two good contributions from @curtwriter but unfortunately those were not scored for a reason that I will explain below. (Go to *Common mistakes and how to fix them*). 
Hopefully he will submit new contributions in the future.
Surprisingly, all the contributions that were not scored had the same mistake.
Today is the beginning of a new round of the contest, and as I said in [my previous report](https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@favcau/suggestions-category-weekly-report-11), I will increase the prize. **2019 is our year!**

`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
![](http://mabusagency.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/illustration-e1425400920126.jpg)

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 suggested idea is duplicated
This is not easy to spot, so do not rush and take few minutes to check it.
Go to the repository of the project and check the Issues Tracker.
Remove the `is:open` filter from the search field (to look for open and closed issues).
Write a word (or two). The keyword(s) of the feature(s) you are going to submit.
After that, look at if someone submitted it on Utopian in the past, a good search engine for that is [AskSteem](https://www.asksteem.com/). Also, you can use [this tool](https://utopiandb.herokuapp.com/?&type=ideas) made by @crokkon.

Hi @favcau, 

As usual, your weekly report is informative. I appreciate all your efforts in trying to grow the category. Well done! 
It is quite unfortunate that the category received 6 contributions, and only 2 got the chance of the reward. I hope our contributors would follow your tips to overcome issues of duplicate contributions. Additionally, thank you for increasing the contest prize. The prize looks more inviting :)) 

Please note that while the CM hasn'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](https://join.utopian.io/guidelines), as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.

To view those questions and the relevant answers related to your post, [click here](https://review.utopian.io/result/1/13131314).
