I picked the latest English version of Dixit. Product code :2015-2/DIX01US/CHP001.

I noticed that a lot of the player aids seem to missing the "bonus points" for scoring. I came to forum to get come clarification and there appears to be a lot of confusion on point scoring.

The instructions read
"If at least one player, but not all players have found the active player's card:
-Active player: 3 points
-Players who found the card: 3 points (+1 bonus points per vote on his/her card."

I read this as, players who did not find the active players card get no bonus points. Other threads make it seem like every player, regardless of whether they found the active players card or not, gets bonus points.

Thanks everyone!

Players who didn't find the active player's card don't get any points at all.
When he is not the active player, but his card was guessed he gets 1 bonus point per guess.

I don't think this is correct. Not in the original Libellud version of the rules, anyway.

Is it a moose that became a detective ? Or a detective who searches for moose?

This has come up before. It seems to be printed that way in some editions and not that way in other editions.

Having played lots of Dixit, it definitely plays better to give everyone the 1 point for tricking people - much more fun, much more incentive for everyone to play a good card.

I agree with this. I think the instructions above were just not well written. You should get 1 point for every person who guessed your card. This is how we have always played with various different play groups.

These rules agree (Dixit American Rules):

I remember that the max amount of points you can get from others guessing your card (when you're not the storyteller) is 3 points.

I've never heard that, and it's not in the rules linked in the comment you're replying to, nor in any Dixit ruleset I've seen (which all agree that each non-storyteller simply gets 1 point for each player who picks their card).

It is from Odyssey which supports up to twelve players. At such a high player count it is necessary, but not when playing with 6 or fewer.

When no one finds the active player 's card every player scores two points. They still get one extra point for every player who guessed his card?
