What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

We're looking at getting some great new swag for community members, so we want to know, what stuff do you want to see?

We'll be making this all available with both Stack Exchange branding and all of the individual sites.

Suggestions we already have include:

  • Laptop bags/sleeves
  • Mugs/Pint Glasses
  • Baby Onesies
  • T-shirts

Suggest whatever things you'd like to see (even if it's only for one site) and upvote the really great suggestions so we know you all love them!

I prefer $10,000 in small bills wrapped in plain brown paper with an SO sticker affixed. I'm assuming these are freebies, too. :-) –  tvanfosson Apr 7 '11 at 21:30

@theChrisKent - if you had a child that fit in a onesie you wouldn't be asking why you need so many mugs. –  tvanfosson Apr 7 '11 at 21:35

How about adult sized onesies? I find them quite comfy. –  Jay Riggs Apr 7 '11 at 21:53

If you make mugs PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make them at least 16 oz with big handles! I'd buy a boatload of them. –  squillman Apr 8 '11 at 1:34

Yeah, what @squillman said. LARGE BEVERAGE CONTAINERS. In fact, let's skip mugs and pints entirely, go for tankards / schooners. –  Shogging through the snow Apr 8 '11 at 3:44

Since you guys have a home brewer in the family now, why not "Stack Ale?" :) [ducks] –  Tim Post Apr 8 '11 at 10:59

iDevice cases with StackOverflow logo on the back.

Would it be possible to get an Etch-A-Sketch in the flavor of our favorite site?

I thought of this today while saying "I'm working on getting the idea out of the Etch-A-Sketch phase into something more concrete."

Really though, the user interface to an Etch-A-Sketch is just beautiful.

Additionally the device doesn't require batteries, just frequent violent shaking, which most of us do to similar but far more modern devices daily.

I think you should sue these guys for stealing what it should be a SO exclusive:

Unicorn card reader

Tribal Pegasus Unicorn Memory Card Reader (Square)

(I swear I did not made this up)

As I suggested here...

A Stack Overflow t-shirt with

  • a small Stack Overflow logo on the left breast
  • your badge list on one sleeve
  • your reputation on the other sleeve
  • optional Stack Exchange flair on the back

For Writers.SE, I suggested making motivational posters with inspiring and/or humorous quotes on them. I think if we had some good ones, a lot of new writers would think they were a cool think to have up in their writing workspace.

This idea might be applicable to other sites too (plenty of programmer humor out there...).

I just want a regular t-shirt. No possibility to buy it right now.
