Codealike bug squashing

I stumbled upon codealike a bit more than a month ago and decided to give it a try. I was interested in programming language usage percentages and coding vs. debugging vs. building statistics as well as some additional stuff that they track. After a while I even decided to get a premium for a month to see what the differences are and whether it would be worth for me personally to pay the fee.

Today I discovered a potential bug in their system that I thought could probably lose them some money so I submitted a bug ticket. In 10 minutes, I got a response from their team. After that, we exchanged a few emails – they were happy that I notified them and in the end they even awarded me with one year of VIP subscription. Which is even better as it means I can now use their staging environment to experience the latest features they’re working on. That was quite cool of them and I guess it pays off to be a good guy. :)
