Announcing the winners of our April Points Contest

It’s the end of our month-long Points Contest and the results are IN! We were so glad to see how many of you enjoyed spending some time here and earning points. During this contest, you wrote over 3,000 posts, gave each other over 4,000 kudos, and authored over 100 solutions!

 

Before I announce the winners, here’s a quick reminder about how the winners were selected:

 

  • Community members were ranked based on point-earning actions taken in the community: Tier 1 required 30+ points, Tier 2 required 100+ points, and Tier 3 required 200+ points
  • An entry to each Tier gave you a chance to win that Tier’s prize
  • Each time you progressed to a higher tier, your entry also remained in the tier(s) below. This means you were entered to win all 3 Tiers’ prizes, so it’s possible for you to reach Tier 3 and earn Tier 2’s prize
  • Tier 1 earned you 1 entry to win the MV32 HW, Tier 2 earned you 2 entries, and Tier 3 earned you 3 entries
  • If you are tagged below, you have been randomly drawn to win that Tier's prize so expect to hear from me to confirm your mailing address (please note that there will be a delay in shipment due to shelter-in-place limitations)
  • If your mailing address is not located in our Eligible Countries list, we will not be able to ship to your country

 

And now....on to the winners!

Ah, the melancholy of not winning,  and yet not really losing because in the pursuit of points we found the information to make our customers with Sonos speakers much much happier and got some great ideas for fun SSID names!

 

Thanks @MeredithW 

 

And congrats, @PacerX

Great comp. again and enjoyed seeing all the extra posts and banta - certainly we have a great community and compared to the equivalent SonicWall and Forthnet, its an actual pleasure being a part of this group.

@Thygesen Actually I was debating setting it up in my moped shop. Not sure if anyone would be interested in watching mopeds being worked on or not. Funny that you mention horses though. The maker of my brand of mopeds used a horse logo for the branding. 😄 I am just excited to get it and try it out. I think working with it will help me decide where it will end up.

@Thygesen Moped = Motor + Pedals. They are like a motorized bicycle but built stronger than a bicycle. Mine are a vintage (1976-80) brand called Pacer which is where I got my user name from. I have a total of 7 bikes that I work on as well as help others with their bikes. Its a great hobby to get your mind off of tech for a bit 😄

Did these ever get shipped?  I never received anything.

MeredithW

@Jwiley78 they have not been shipped yet! Unfortunately, all of these swag items are living at Meraki HQ in SF and I have not been permitted to return to mail them yet. As soon as I am allowed back, I'll update everyone here to let you know your swag is finally on the way. Thanks everyone for being so patient!

No worries, just wondering if it got lost in the delivery.  Stay healthy!

Hi @MeredithW ,

 

Any update on these shipments? Talk like a Pirate day reminded of this.

Thank you,

 

 

MeredithW

@KRobert still nothing to report, I'm afraid! As soon as I can, I'll provide the update here though 🙂

It still seems a bit foreign to me when I see some businesses still keeping people home.  We are fortunate enough to be in a low impact area that is now mostly back to normal minus mask and hand sanitizer regulations.  On top of that, I personally never got the WFH experience having drawn the short straw to be the only IT worker on staff stay at the office to make sure everyone else could do what they needed to do. (Translation: My workload increased while others got to lounge at home in their PJs lol.)

 

Whether you are at home or the office, or somewhere in between, I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.

Hi all! So pleased to announce that we are FINALLY shipping out your prizes! Keep your eyes peeled over the next week and if you don't receive anything by December, please reach out to community-help@meraki.com. Thanks for being so patient 🙂

Awesome!! I am excited!! So what was the carrier that delivered the packages?  I am just curious, since I moved 3 days ago.  I have filled out all the forms via usps for a change of address and to start forwarding my mail to the to the new place.  I also have notifications set for any fedex or ups packages being sent to me via text.  I haven’t seen anything yet, but am looking forward to it!! 

CarolineS

@AndreaWimsatt The packages were sent via FedEx! Hope we had the correct address for you!

AndreaWimsatt

Well you did have the correct address until a few days ago when we moved.  Is there any way you could send me the tracking number, or I could give you my new address?

MeredithW

@AndreaWimsatt I'll PM for your new address!
