I saw that some of the user profiles contain #Soreadytohelp.

Do they simply mean something?

It was a contest from 2015 to celebrate the 10 million questions in Stack Overflow.

They asked to share your experience about Stack Overflow in Twitter with the #SOreadytohelp hashtag.

In case you are not using Twitter:

Not a fan of teh twitters? No problem. Just add #SOreadytohelp to your "About Me" on your profile page.

So many of them added the #SOreadytohelp in their profile.

    @ShadowWizard: From this post's comments, few of them received and most of them not received the T-Shirts.
