A Newer Defect Severity Hierarchy…

Mike Talks wrote a brilliant post recently. I loved it so much it inspired my version…

Severity 1 – OMFG

Not much good being the ‘headlights’ of the project when the lights are out!


Severity 2 – WTF?

May stop you, if hard enough.


Severity 3 – Uh?

Will hurt a bit, but if your conditioned…


Severity 4 – Meh

Wotevs, I’ve got headgear!



If you happen to be a bug tracking tool developer, can I suggest you add these (and Mike’s) pictures. I’ll certainly use them!
