Update November 2023

Hi everyone. I realize it’s been a year and a half since we updated you all that swag was on pause. There have been a lot of moving pieces this year hence the delay in an official update. The TL/DR is that swag will remain on pause for the foreseeable future.

We had to pause swag last year in part due to staffing changes and in part due to changes in our vendors. We were hoping to have a vendor solution in place to make sending out swag an easy lift for the Community Management team and a foolproof process for community members to be able to submit their shipping info without PII being stored by a third-party vendor.

Unfortunately getting a vendor set up and a process to manage proved to be a cumbersome endeavor. In a time of limited resources, we are directing areas of funding to work that more directly supports our goals of focusing on maintaining and improving the experience on the Stack Exchange Network sites. Our team also doesn't have the bandwidth to currently manage a swag system. These three factors lead us to where we are at the moment. Our community swag program is going to remain paused for the foreseeable future.

I know that is disappointing and believe me, I wish we were in a position where we could be shipping swag yesterday. But we’re not. I don’t have a time frame for when/if swag will be back. If we are able to bring it back in the future we will update you.

Update May 2022

I know everyone (myself included) has been excited by the return of swag. I just wanted to give y'all a heads up that we're currently revamping our swag options and shipping process, so we have to put a temporary pause on sending swag out.

As soon as updates are in place, I'll let you all know and we'll work to retroactively ship swag to anyone who earned it during the interim. We're sorry for the temporary hiatus. Once everything is up and running again, we'll post an update here.

One of the things we enjoy doing at Stack Overflow is celebrating with you when you reach momentous events in our communities. Traditionally, we’ve celebrated by sending swag your way when you’ve reached a high reputation score or when you’ve been elected as a moderator to one of our great network communities. It’s been some time since we've been able to do this and I’m here to announce that we are actively restarting the sending of the swags!

There are 3 categories of folks that will be getting swag. Since shipping costs can be pretty significant, we’re going to do this in batches. We’re planning to retroactively award swag to everyone who would have received it since we stopped shipping, primarily to new high reputation users, new moderators, and contest winners. Then, once we are caught up, we will begin to once again send out swag to new first-time moderators and high rep users as they achieve these milestones.

I want to call out that some countries are very difficult for us to send items to and if yours is one of those, we will let you know. The list of countries can change so rather than putting them here, we’ll address it when we get your shipping information. Regardless, we’re going to make our best effort to send you your swag... we don’t want these items gathering dust on a shelf!

And now, the categories.

High Reputation Members

There are two levels to this tier, one for reaching 100K and another for 250K in reputation points. Those who earned these levels starting from March 2019 will be eligible to receive their package of swag.

Those who earned 100K will receive:

  • Branded T-shirt (SE or SO)
  • Branded socks (SE or SO) - two styles available, you’ll get one selected randomly

Those who earned 250K will receive:

  • Branded T-shirt (SE or SO)
  • Branded socks (SE or SO) - two styles available, you’ll get one selected randomly
  • Webcam cover
  • Water bottle or tumbler (SE or SO)
  • SE pop socket


For our distinguished and elected moderators, we also have some goodies we want to send you. We will start with those moderators who were elected starting from January 2019 to now and once we’ve completed sending those folks their swag, we will then continue with the entire moderator team and refresh each one of you with shiny and new goodies!

All moderators will receive:

  • Moderator diamond hat
  • T-shirt (SO or SE)
  • Water bottle or tumbler

Past Contest Winners

Back in 2018 we held a "Stuff-a-way!" contest and asked folks to share accounts of goodwill where items were given to people to make someone's life better. We were able to send most of the participants their box of swag but there were some whom we still owe some goodies. We have a list of those folks and we're ready to send you the following items:

  • SE socks - two styles available, you’ll get one selected randomly
  • SE T-shirt
  • Branded webcam cover
  • SE pop socket
  • Branded pen

A Few Items

We were unable to get good photos of every item we’re planning on shipping mainly because these were created offsite. But, I did want to include some so you can get an idea of what we’re talking about. We’re really excited to be able to do this again and we hope you’ll be just as excited when you get your swag! We’d also appreciate it if you posted an answer with photos of the swag you receive for others to see.

Stack Overflow tshirt SO-tshirt

Stack Exchange tshirt SE-tshirt

Stack Exchange pop socket SE-popsocket

Stack Overflow Socks SO-Socks

Stack Exchange Socks SE-socks


How will you know where to ship my goodies to?

Everyone who is eligible to receive swag will receive an email from us giving details on how they can submit their address information and t-shirt size (in a GDPR-compliant fashion). These emails will be sent out over batches over the next few months and they will come from the [email protected] address. Once we are all caught up on the backlog, we will start once again sending swag to moderators and high rep users as they reach these milestones. We will update here as each new batch is sent out (if you think that you should have been included in a batch that was already sent, then reach out to us and we will try to make it right).

Who will be doing the shipping?

We are using a third-party vendor called Proforma to actually handle the shipping. Your shipping address will be shared with them for the sole purpose of sending you your swag.

Is there a way for users to purchase swag?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer swag for purchase at this time. If this changes, we will let you know.

Update May 2021

Our first wave of emails have gone out and they're coming from our [email protected] address. We're using this address because we don't have third-party emailing tools tied to the stackoverflow.com domain. So, if you get one, know that it's from us!

Update June 2021

The first of the shipments has been made and we wanted to give you a head's up on some changes we've had to make in what we're able to send out.

I’ve spent the past several weeks planning the packages for our swag shipments and I discovered that some items were bundled for shipments in groups of 5 and up. This meant that if we requested something to be sent to you, you’d get 5 or 10 of them (depending on the item and the design). This was beneficial for our marketing team since they normally send large orders of items to conferences and events. However, for us, there’s no use in sending you 12 mugs at a time. Not only is this unreasonable, it’s also very expensive!

I was able, however, to reorder most swag items and inventory them individually but having to reorder these items cut into our overall budget. In order to stick with our timeline and our desire to send you swag, we’ve opted to remove only the stickers from the packages to reduce production times and save enough to include even more people in this. I've made corrections to package lists above and removed the stickers for now. Everything else will stay!

Also, the second wave of emails will be sent out in a few weeks!

    @AsteroidsWithWings Anyone who hit the milestone at that time should have gotten swag via the previous process. This process is meant to cover everyone who became eligible after we stopped sending it out. If you never got any emails about it before, you probably had emails for Community Milestones turned off.

    @AsteroidsWithWings I believe simply turning on that email bucket again will trigger the Congrats email to be sent the next time the script checks for eligible candidates, which should drop you into the bucket of "people sent the email while we weren't sending swag." The script only checks that you are above the threshold and haven't received the email before not that you just recently passed the threshold.

    The addition of updates inconsistently above and below the original post gets progressively more confusing with each new update. They should all be above, or all below. Or better yet, the updates should probably have been made as their own post instead... Especially one clarifying that no part of the original announcement is relevant at this point since it's indefinitely paused. (If there is more news about swag coming back in the future, it should definitely be a new post.)

Great news, thanks a lot!

Since the discontinuation of swag, we have had a few users reach a new milestone, 1 million reputation. Are there any plans to extend the swag packages for exceptional users like them?

And (I'm not sure how deep your pockets are) it's perhaps time to award users who are not so much into collecting reputation but doing a lot of dirty work in the review queues?

Please help us choose T-shirt sizes

I got a SO T-shirt in the past. I chose XL size, and it turned out to be too large for me, so I never could wear it.

I don't want to make a similar mistake again. So I'm asking:

  • What is the manufacturer now? If it is the same as with my old T-shirt I can safely assume I want size L.
  • Preferably, can you provide T-shirt width and length measurements (cm or inches) for each size name (L, XL, ...)? Actual sizes vary a lot across countries and manufacturers, so it's hard to choose just based on the size name.
  • The exact brand tended to vary with the old black shirts. White shirts were seriously less popular so I think they had one brand as far as I can remember. Commented Dec 20, 2020 at 19:56

    As someone who handled swag in the past, this was always a huge struggle. New shirts would often get printed on whatever was the cheapest option available at the time, which meant that pretty much every shirt we had before was slightly different in size from others. I have multiple different shirts from SO and other sites, and none of them fit the same as another. So it's not as much the need for publishing shirt sizes, but finding one shirt manufacturer you like and sticking with it. Changing between them freely only leads to these odd problems.

    Also, shirt sizes are gendered. I take a different size in men's than in women's. It seems from the form that only men's are available: it just says S M L etc with no gender. This should definitely be fixed. I can sort of handle choosing which size of men's shirt I want (I'm used to it) but I hate the erasure that forgets there is another style of shirt - you know, half the planet? Commented Oct 13, 2021 at 14:05
  • Tee shirts are pretty straight-forward to modify to size-down. Easier with a sewing machine - my hand sewing isn't neat enough. 1) iron it flat, inside out. Draw a line up the side, and curve it to clip the armpit, then down the underside of the sleeve to the cuff. 2) Switch it up and back down with a colour-matched thread and a short stitch length. 3) Optionally trim off most of the folded-over flap with scissors/shears. 4) Optionally stitch the flap flat to the cloth.

Much appreciated

This feels like another very important step in the right direction of rebuilding trust. We get that swag is a pain in the arse to manage, logistically. But such an important gesture of goodwill.

What does "or" mean?

Branded t-shirt (SE or SO)

Does this mean:

  • recipient chooses which t-shirt they want
  • you get an SO t-shirt if you hit a rep milestone on SO, otherwise SE?
  • chosen randomly?
  • 12
    Good question - I think we will likely default to the second one but I don't know if there's a reason we couldn't go with the first one. If someone wants an SO shirt but got their rep elsewhere, it seems reasonable to let them choose... and if someone already has an SO shirt when they get to 250k, maybe they'd rather an SE shirt. Thanks for asking!

Update November 2023

... I guess, at least, now you are honest about it?

I am having quite some trouble processing just how cavalierly of a fashion you guys break direct promises of doing nice things. I imagine that there could be individuals within the institution that actually care, but that does not matter. These are institutional actions, and what your institutional actions say is that you just don't care.

Also, I should note, the line "Hint: sometimes involves swag", which is by now little more than active mockery, is still present in the Community Milestones toggle in the email settings. At least be brave enough to take that down.


so.... this is really, really not one of those things where you can say "finally, we're doing this good thing again!" and not do it. Folks, you promised swag two years ago, and you took it away again, and now you've been silent for eight months about when the swag might actually be delivered. If you're going to backtrack and cancel it, and we should just write it off, then at least let us know.

Original post from when I was happy about this:

This is very good to hear! particularly given that this promise

turns out to have been hollow for the better part of two years.

Seriously, though.

I passed the total-100k threshold quite some time ago, but I chose to approach the formal 100k-rep threshold more slowly through giving away substantial rep in bounties. However, this intentional approach was hijacked, and I crossed 100k in November 2019 as a result of the re-setting of the question upvote value from 5 to 10 rep. Regardless of the merits of that decision, it was an arbitrary change to the basics of the Q&A engine which was done with utterly no community consultation, coming at a time when things were not going well and this kind of unilateral action was obviously a problem.

So the company takes away my choice for the moment, and, on top of that, instead of the swag that was promised, all I get is a canned email? I'm sorry to say that this felt distinctly like getting spat at in the face.

Thank you for taking steps to mend this. I'm not sure that my trust in SE, and your handling of the platform, is back up at levels where I would feel comfortable wearing the t-shirt in public (and indeed my t-shirt from this glorious artwork* is currently languishing in a shelf), but I'll think about it.

*speaking of which -- our site is still a hat, and we still don't have our site-hat hat. Just sayin'.

A lot of the previous swag was branded for that specific site; for instance, I have a t-shirt with the Science Fiction & Fantasy logo, some Movies & TV stickers, and a Super User pen. Is there anything like this with the new swag provider, or just the SE and SO generic branded swag?

  • 15
    At this point in time, it's just going to be SE and SO. We love the SE sites and their vibrant designs and swag but the overhead of printing and storing the swag for all of the sites really caught up with us and it gets pretty expensive.

Those who earned these levels starting from March 2019

How do you measure when a reputation threshold was reached?

I ask because of the big reputation recalculation in November 2019, when question upvotes were changed from 5 to 10 reputation. Since the change was retroactive, it means that some users actually passed the 100k threshold on that day but everything in the reputation tracking system shows that they passed it many months earlier.

Here's an example of such a user. On his reputation graph it looks like he broke the 100k barrier in February 2019 (before the March watershed), but in reality he broke it suddenly from the rep recalc in November 2019, along with a few other users.

I hope you've already thought of this and will calculate the "time of earning" in a way that doesn't accidentally disenfranchise users such as this one. But I wanted to mention it explicitly just in case by some oversight you're using e.g. the reputation graph to check when the 100k and 250k thresholds were passed.

  • 10
    Time of reaching the threshold is calculated based on when the congratulations email is sent and has nothing really to do with when they perceivably passed the threshold. That email is sent in batches to all users who meet the criteria: 1) Currently above the threshold (100k or 250k); 2) Has the Community Milestones bucket enabled in their email settings; 3) Hasn't received the email for that milestone in the past. We are just looking at the date the email was generated and recorded to their user history. Anything else would be too complicated.

One question comes to mind:

Some have gathered tremendous amounts of reputation during their time working at Stack Overflow inc., but disallowing them swag feels wrong, especially seeing the tremendous time some spent on these sites daily. That probably was far more than their contractual 6-8 hours.

I just received a swag email and have responded to it. I have a couple of things I'd like to point out:

  • The email came from stackoverflowsolutions, which is unfamiliar and raised a red flag for me. Lots of false domains have prefixes or suffixes added to legitimate domain names. Upon investigation, it's legit and appears to be associated with Teams and possibly others. Edit: While I was typing this the question itself was edited to address this point.

  • In the approximately twelve and a half years I've been active on SO, etc., I have been offered swag bundles at least twice before (and well before the ~2019 swag "pause") and have submitted my shipping address and then never received anything. In contrast, I have received the odd individual tshirt or sticker pack a few times. If I receive a bundle this time I will be surprised and pleased. But if it never arrives I will just ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and move on.

Update: Swag received 2021-06-07. Nice items (I received the 250K package minus the stickers and socks)! Thanks!


As an owner of a previous generation Server Fault T-shirt, I am a bit disappointed not to see SF or SU represented here. Please consider bringing them back.

Additionally I would like to be able to choose between SO and SE swag, rather than have that choice made for me.

  • 2021.10.19: Received email. Thanks everyone.

This is welcome news! Question

Does this include beta sites?

@filbranden and I were elected to the Vi & Vim moderator team, and I haven't received any mail (perhaps my timeline is wrong?). I did see some comments about having community emails enabled, which I do.

    IIUC the mails for newly elected moderators have not gone out just yet. From what I can tell you should be getting swag Commented Dec 29, 2020 at 13:34

Are the reputation thresholds per-site or network-wide?

Some people specialize in one thing, while others participate on a variety of different sites. Ideally, it'd be nice to reward both.

Are these jacks of all trades eligible for swag if they cross the threshold across all sites (perhaps excluding association bonuses), or must the threshold be crossed on a single site?


To be honest, I'd prefer that recipients would have the opportunity to donate the value of any swag to some charitable organization. My preference would be something related to say world health or hunger.

The honor is nice, but times are desperate.

Perhaps a few organizations could be chosen and recipients could choose one.

    Exactly right. The world does not need more pointless nerd swag as we sleep-walk into this global environmental crisis. Hacktoberfest offered the option to plant a tree instead of receiving a t-shirt. Recognition is welcome but please find a more ethically and environmentally responsible approach.

  • The option would be nice yes. But a T-shirt is dwarfed by the effort to reach e.g. 100k, which is basically voluntary work. I personally would like to have something physical to remind myself of that, once I get there (2 accounts at almost 80k+, some time to go). Commented Feb 19, 2022 at 15:29

I think there's a bug somewhere. I got a mail from Community Swag • [email protected] that I'm getting swag:

You’re receiving this email because you've either achieved 100K reputation this year or since March 2019.

However, I've 100K on only one site: Ask Ubuntu, where I reached 100K in 2017. I did get the congratulatory email in 2017 and the swag as well (t-shirt, stickers - dispatched October 13, 2017).

Possible causes of error:

  • I was suspended for a while, so I wonder if that had something to do with this.
  • I was a pro-tem mod on Vi & Vim.
  • I reached 250k total rep across SE sites sometime in the past year.
  • I got some other swag (a watch for Time for some more swag!) in 2019.

(Of course, I'd love more swag, but still….)

  • I guess I'll submit the form anyway and see what happens.

    You don't know how important 10/13/2017 is to me, and many others. Thank you for sharing that date. LOL! You posted this answer 3 years to-the-day later.

Any news on the design launch Top User Swag for pending sites?

There used to be swag for the design launch of graduate sites in past. But it seems to be not in place lately. Is there any news for that too?

    As far as I'm aware, there's no plan to create any site-specific swag other than for SO.

    @Catija is correct. We're only able to offer SE and SO specific swag at the moment. I'm hopeful this can change in the future and I'll be happy to update if it does!

It looks like swag is being distributed at Flow State.

Still paused here, though?
