What is not good evidence?

General rules

  • The information provided does not clearly show that work was done in the month leading up to the report

  • The links submitted do not work, so the project's evidence cannot be effectively verified

    • E.g. Git repo is publicly accessible that will allow for review

  • The report and evidence submitted is not in line with the Ideascale proposal

    • There have been changes made to the project in some way without approving the scope change

    • Project report is a duplicate of another previous report or another project altogether

    • The evidence contains projects description only, without any progress

    • Evidence is in different language than English

      • Process cannot accommodate other languages just yet

  • Evidence is the same for different projects submitted by the same proposer

Specific evidence

  • If image/video is evidence:

    • Quality is poor - unable to watch/see

    • Image wasn’t taken within time frame of progression month

    • Lack of description

  • If code is evidence:

    • It isn’t in the Git repository

    • Activity in Github doesn’t match what stated in progress report

  • If presentation/slide is evidence:

    • There is only project description, no track of any progression made within last month

  • If plan/task is evidence:

    • List of task completed in the last month or description of/list of tasks for the future month only ( there should be both list current and future one), lack of supporting evidence attached

  • If website is evidence:

    • No clear evidence of new features/updates on the website and their description

  • What if evidence is deemed as insufficient?

    • If a project submits MR before the deadline, there is a better chance that Catalyst will inform a project via email that there is an issue with evidence provided.

    • Email will raise what the issue is and request to address, ideally by re-submitting MR with the required information.
