  • Clear descriptions of any accounts used in your report and the relationships between them. Please do not use the same name on multiple accounts to avoid confusion.
  • Quality before quantity.
  • If you send a video, consider these tips:
    • Keep it short by showing only the parts necessary to demonstrate the bug once. (Remove or redo mistakes that might happen while recording.)
    • Record at a resolution where text or URLs are readable.

While we do invite you to research this other software as well, under the same terms as stated above, this does not guarantee a listing in the hall of fame.
