[CONTEST ENDED] Spend some WFH time here on the community, earn points and win prizes!

Community Manager

UPDATE: This contest has ended! See who our 80+ winners are here!

 

While working from home, as many of us are now, online connections to others can be even more valuable than usual. So, we want to infuse a bit of extra encouragement and fun here on the Meraki Community with our third-ever POINTS CONTEST! 

 

For the next four weeks (today through Friday, April 24th), you’ll earn points just for participating in community discussions. The more points you earn, the more chances you have to win some fantastic swag.

 

Details below!

 

How it works

 

Just like in our previous Points Contests, starting today, certain actions you take in the community will earn you points. Those points will enter you to win a smattering of Meraki-branded prizes. You needn’t opt in — simply taking one of these point-earning actions will do:

 

  • Reply to any topic or blog post — 5 points
  • Start a topic (e.g. ask a question, pose a discussion point) — 5 points

 

To optimize the bang for your buck, writing high-quality posts can earn you even more points:

 

  • Receive a kudo — 7 points
  • Write an answer that gets marked as a solution — 10 points

 

As you can see, the more helpful your action to the community, the more points you receive!

 

There are 3 tiers that you can reach based on the number of points you amass. Within each tier, at the end of the month, we’ll randomly select winners to receive swag as outlined below:

 

    • Tier 1 requires 30 points and will have 50 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a cloud stress reliever and an “I Cloud Manage” sticker

  • Tier 2 requires 100 points and will have 25 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a cloud stress reliever, an “I Cloud Manage” sticker, and a custom Meraki Community mug

  • Tier 3 requires 200 points and will have 10 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a cloud stress reliever, an “I Cloud Manage” sticker, a custom Meraki Community mug, AND a pair of the all-new custom Meraki Community socks

AND, just like last round, everyone who earns enough points to achieve any tier will be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE of a brand new MV32 HW (with 5-year license)! Reaching Tier 1 gets you 1 entry, Tier 2 doubles your entries and… (guess what!?) Tier 3 triples your entries to win!


That means that, over the course of this month, you could write just 6 replies or author just 3 solutions anywhere in the community and be entered to win one of these:Screen Shot 2020-03-23 at 3.49.47 PM.png

 

 

How will I know how I’m doing?

To keep you all up to date on your progress, every Monday I’ll post a list of everyone who has reached Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3.

 

When are the winners chosen?

On April 24th at 10 am PDT, the contest will end. We’ll then randomly select winners for each tier (50 for Tier 1, 25 for Tier 2, and 10 for Tier 3) and we’ll also draw the lucky winner of the GRAND PRIZE.

 

We’ll announce each of the winners here, so be sure to stay tuned!

 

More details:

  • Promotion period: Tuesday, March 24th, 2030 at 10am PDT through Friday April 24th, 2020 at 9:59am PDT
  • Up to three possible entries per community member: Each time you progress a tier, your entry remains in the tier below as well (meaning more chances to win stuff!). If you are randomly selected to win in two or three separate tiers, you’ll receive only the prize from the highest level tier. If you are selected to receive the Grand Prize, this will be in addition to any tier-level prizes.
  • Shipping limitations: We can only ship prizes to residents of these Eligible Countries 
  • Complete rules and eligibility can be found here

Wait a minute, I assumed it would be a PAIR of socks. I'm gonna have to think abot this.

 

On the one hand, it's a really nice sock.

 

On the other hand, I might end up killing myself or an innocent bystander looker for its mate.

 

Decisions, decions.

 

Last time I had to make a choice like this:

Thank you for the WFH contest, it's been quite crazy working for a school district with all of this going on.

Thank you Meredith!

UCcert: I used to have Gnome on my team. (Un)fortunately, Eeyore moved in his turf. That guy doesn't mess around. I shall speak no more, lest I incur the wrath of E who shall not be named.

No matter who wins this, I am clearly deserving of an online CMNA course complete with hardware goodies!

 

It's only right!

Well, thanks for offering a contest to keep us sane during a time when many of us are quarantined at home. It's my pleasure to be a part of such a cool community! Let's get the party started with the 5 points for this comment. 

 

I'd like to send extra kudos to the @Simple post with work from home tips for us all. These three resonated with me in particular:

  1.  Play music to block out sounds of home. This is particularly important for me because my neighbors just acquired a few donkeys! Wow! They don't sound anything like Donkey from Shrek or Eeyore.
  2. End the day with three critical priorities to complete the following day and start each of them even if it is a single sentence. I love this one for staying focused. Having a starting point right away in the morning will be great.
  3. Stay out of the Fridge except for lunch time!! I feel like I ate 10 times today.

Tomorrow will be much better. Stay safe and healthy everyone and thanks again.
