Apply your forge component for review

Wouldn't it be great if you can apply for a review for the component that you already published on the Forge.

Community Forge

Just to make sure I understood your idea, you want to ask the community to code review your component right?

How would you envision that process to be?

I know there are Moderators on the Forum, I can imagine the same for the Forge. Were there not also MVPs with a focus on the Forge. They need to review and mark a component as Verified/Trusted.

I can imagine for large application or complex components it is harder, but that means the app/component  should be well documented in both the Forge as in the modules. (Descriptions filled, comments attached to flows etc.). Well documented components should be well document as a prerequisite prior to review. And there should be interaction between the developer & the reviewer during this process.

The benefit of a process like this, is that the Forge gets a curated tone to it. Another benefit is that you can recommend verified components, they are prior to "regular components".

Last but not least, having the interaction between Developer & OutSystems Reviewers shows the engagement OutSystems achieves with their community. I have no doubt that there are community members among us that like to be a Moderator when it comes to this.

Just my 2 cents, hope this answers your question. Feel free to reach out if you have other questions, or would like to brainstorm a bit regarding this.

Hi, William!

I'm happy to let you know that we're starting to work on your idea! We believe it will help increasing the quality of Forge components which is one of our priorities right now. 

Happy weekend!

Great to hear Ângela. If I can be of any assistance during the process feel free to let me know :)

Hi, William!

I'm happy to let you know that we've implemented your idea! Congratulations!

You can now request a trusted badge directly on your component's profile page on Forge. 

You can access this option by expanding the Manage dropdown on your component and choosing Request trusted badge.

And because we want to encourage everyone that provides content of excellence for our community, we're giving +30 points instead of the usual +10 for each trusted component you get.

Check the trusted requirements and boost your component's reputation now!

Amazing, thanks for the update. Looks solid and this will hopefully increases/sustain the quality of components :)
