    MODX Bug Hunt

Cleanse the MODX issue tracker on March 3rd, 2017

MODX Bug Hunt

The MODX Bug Hunt is an international event where we squash as many MODX bugs as possible. The MODX issue tracker has the odd tendency to rise to a huge number every now and then. As loyal MODX users, we give it a healthy kick once in a while to keep it on a healthy level.

The MODX Bug Hunt takes place at the Sterc HQ, on this site through a livestream and in the #modxbughunt channel on the modx.org Slack channel.

What to expect:

  • That amazing feeling of being part of the MODX community.
  • Prizes! Yes, besides getting major thanks from the whole community, you can also win prizes for fixing bugs.
  • Live stream from the Sterc office
  • You can join us at Sterc HQ (in the Netherlands) or work remotely from your own office or home
  • Scoreboard on modxbughunt.com
  • Unique badges, to be awarded after the hunt. Who doesn't want to be called the "Evasion ninja" for closing the most issues which can't be reproduced.

How are points awarded?

To keep things easy we decided on the following points system:

  • Developing a fix: 3 points
  • Testing a fix: 1 point
  • Testing if an issue is correct: 1 point

Use the tag #modxbughunt

In order to have your issues/PR's/Comments points counted, use the #modxbughunt tag in your text. Github allows us to search through everything with that tab.

Check all issues with the #modxbughunt tag on Github.
