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.

  • @Arulkumar thanks, though it might have just took longer, asked one of them if he got it by now. Apr 21, 2017 at 9:44
  • @ShadowWizard I think I got a swag pack related to one of these things. Including one of those shirts.

  • A little funny for this site to say "helping others is its own reward" when the basis of the site is getting paid in points or "reputation" in exchange for the so-called help (which frequently involves NOT actually helping at all, but instead closing or criticizing questions for dubious reasons).
