# Please Read
Please read these instructions before submitting issues or pull requests to the Steemit.com (**condenser**) GitHub repository. The issue tracker is the place to start for all for bugs and well vetted enhancements.
## Bug Reports
If there is an existing feature that is not working correctly, or a glitch in the website that is impacting user behaviour - please open an issue to report variance. Include as much relevant information as you can, including screen shots and steps to reproduce the issue.
## Technical Support and Signup/Login Issues
If you are having trouble using the website but it is not an error with the website (this includes signup/login issues), do **not** open a GitHub issue. Please request help from the users in the [steemit.chat help](https://steemit.chat/channel/help) channel.
## Enhancement Suggestions
If you have an enhancement you would like to see in condenser we suggest you first discuss it with other members of the
community on Steemit.com, or in the steemit discord channel. If there is a well vetted idea that has the support of the
community create an issue with a link to the discussion, a detailed description, and tag it with the label `new_grass`
(for 'grass roots', and 'the grass is greener'). New enhancement issues that do not follow this format will be closed.
**Bumps for working code:** Community contributions are still tops. If there's a `new_grass` labeled issue you like or
want to promote, fork the repo and code away! (leave a comment saying as much with a link to your repo/branch) When
you've got it ready post another comment and tag `@sneak` in it. If it passes muster you'll be invited to create a Pull Request.
## Implementation Discussion
The developers frequently open issues to discuss changes that are being worked on. This is to inform the community of the changes being worked on, and to get input from the community and other developers on the implementation.
Issues opened that devolve into lengthy discussion of minor site features will be closed or locked. The issue tracker is not a general purpose discussion forum. (That's what steemit.com is for!)
## Duplicate Issues
Please do a keyword search to see if there is already an existing issue before opening a new one.
## Steemit.com vs. Steem Blockchain
This issue tracker is only intended to track issues for the Steemit.com website. If the issue is with the
Steem blockchain, please open an issue in the [Steem Repository](https://github.com/steemit/steem).
## Pull Requests
We love working code, but please do not open a Pull Request unless all the conditions in the **Bumps for working code:**
section have been met.
# Contributing to Condenser
Everyone is welcome to contribute code to Steemit, Inc. projects. We have a Code of Conduct;
we ask that you please follow it in all your interactions with our team and your fellow
contributors.
Please note that this contributing guide only applies to our development presence.
## How to contribute
1. File an issue describing the problem you would like to
solve or the feature you would like to add. It saves unnecessary work on your part,
in case there's a nontechnical reason we can't accept a particular change.
Please note that we can and will _automatically close all pull requests that do not refer to
an issue_.
2. Learn the conventions of the project you are submitting code to, even implicit ones,
and follow them. In case you have a question about a project's conventions, please
ask on the issue you filed. This includes writing tests, formatting code, and documentation.
3. File a pull request against your Github issue and fill out the pull request template.
Remember, you are agreeing to license your code and any intellectual property associated
with your code under the same terms as the repository you are contributing to.
4. If one of our teammates asks you to make changes, please make them. Our rule is that all
requests for changes in code review are resolved in favor of the reviewer. Our teammates
follow this rule too!
5. **Reporting Bugs** If there is an existing feature that is not working correctly, or a
glitch in the website that is impacting user behaviour - please open an issue to report
variance. Include as much relevant information as you can, including screen shots and
steps to reproduce the issue.
6. **Enhancement Suggestions** If you have an enhancement you would like to see in condenser
we suggest you first discuss it with other members of the community on Steemit.com, or
in the steemit discord channel. If there is a well vetted idea that has the support of
the community create an issue with a link to the discussion, a detailed description, and
tag it with the label `community-src`
7. **Development Discussions** The developers frequently open issues to discuss changes that
are being worked on. This is to inform the community of the changes being worked on, and
to get input from the community and other developers on the implementation.
8. **Pull Requests** We love community contributions. If you've done some work on an issue
and want to see it in the condenser codebase, please submit a Pull Request, reference
the issue in the description *and tag the it with `community-src`* we're working very
hard to keep our development practices as open as possible, and this helps us a lot.
