UPSey daisy; so we had a little ... incident ...
Pretty sure that has power.
We're past that now, and things are returning to normal. It's only appropriate that we take a moment to think about the folks that got pulled out of bed and worked their knuckles to the bone to get things back up and running. In the spirit of that, we're going to have a little contest.
Lets's make some free-hand thank-you cards for the folks that kept things going!
Yeah, it's their job and all, but they went above and beyond today. Plus, who doesn't like some cool free hand cards chocked full 'o love to hang on their wall? And it's Friday, so it's not like you have anything better to do. Plus, it's been a while since we've done one of these.
- Must say "Never Forget" with today's date, somewhere in the picture (May 16, 2014 in any format you desire)
- Must not mention or depict any entity, person or company in a derogatory manner
- Must be as funny as you can possibly make it
- Must be at or under our size limit for image uploads
- If large, make sure the small version links to the large version
- Must be mostly hand-drawn (mouse, pen, etc)
- Must (of course) be your original work
The top 10 artists, as chosen by votes, will receive a goody box containing:
- One Stack Exchange T-shirt (or your choice of other site's shirts we have in stock)
- Your choice of a Stack Exchange coffee mug, or Stack Exchange Nalgene water bottle
- An assortment of pens, stickers and retractable sharpies
- A Stack Overflow padfolio, with branded aluminium pen
- Multiple entries allowed, but only one prize pack per winner
- Winning entries determined by net count of up-votes (down-voting the competition isn't going to help you)
- Open to employees, but c'mon, y'all can just ask me for this stuff, so make it good.
- Contest closes at 20:00:00 UTC Monday May 19 2014
- Allow 6 to 8 weeks for prize delivery (no, I'm not kidd.. ugh, I give up)
Now get those crayons in your toes and show these unsung heroes some well deserved love!
Just about 7.5 hours left folks, get any last minute votes in before then! This will remain open past the contest end time, however votes must be logged on or before 20:00:00 UTC in order to count. Good luck to everyone, we've received some awesome stuff so far!
Because there were some late entries, a weekend involved and a whole lot of awesomeness on display here, I'm declaring everyone that contributed a positively scored entry as a winner, you'll all receive an email from me in the next few days to collect your size, prize preference and shipping information.
That means if you entered, and didn't delete your submission, you're going to get something.
Thank you to all that participated, we hope you enjoyed making these as much as our team has enjoyed laughing while viewing them.
