I love the swag thread that @BHC_RESORTS started - I use it as an example all the time of how awesome our community members are 😀
I also really love this response by @Mr_IT_Guy to someone who was rather grumpy...
Happy Valentine's Day!
I'm not sure if it won the contest, but the Meraki Cat by MichelRueger was one of the best in the community challenge.
I actually want to add this comment on this very page since we have been having this issue internally and searches of the community page didn't seem to find this. So thank you, 4zap
I 'permalinked' but nothing shows up here? help?
This is the link I will include...
Great information for me.Sonicwall replacement
The post: "Can a Meraki switch replace a Catalyst 3750 core switch" was the most useful to convince the rest of the IT team that we could replace our Cisco switches with Meraki switches. Thank you for that post.

not sure about permalinking?
My team is working toward "zero touch" deployments, and this thread is a giant leap in that direction. Thanks @Melissa
This one! We waited a long time for IKEv2 (which will never be implemented) and now the vMX100 is our solution. Lets buy one more 🙂
I love the New Year's resolution thread. https://community.meraki.com/t5/Community-Announcements/Happy-New-Year-What-are-your-Networking-Reso...
So many good ideas in there for the year. I really like @jared_f pictures of his home environment. https://community.meraki.com/t5/Community-Announcements/Happy-New-Year-What-are-your-Networking-Reso...
@Announcer it looks like you figured out the permalink thing - I also (hopefully) clarified the instructions. Let me know (via a PM here in the community) if you have any further questions!
I like this thread https://community.meraki.com/t5/Off-the-Stack/How-many-Meraki-Devices-do-you-administer/m-p/9326/hig... by @BlakeRichardson sharing some insights about what other people administrate in their Meraki account. Didn't comment there yet as I wanted to put in the biggest number and still working on achieving this
This here https://community.meraki.com/t5/Off-the-Stack/Move-over-Tony-Hawk-Here-comes-Maui/m-p/8318/highlight... is very funny btw and @Mr_IT_Guy will surely get the most mentions in this thread as he's the funniest IT guy out here in the community.
All I want for Valentine's Day is a green Meraki shirt. I will wear it proudly. Think I could get one before St. Patrick's Day?
My favorite post has to be the one from @PhilipDAth and his Offline Dashboard Backup and Restore.
Many thanks to everyone else liking my posts, especially you @FMCOM! "Funniest IT guy out here in the community" is probably the best accolade I could get!
this post was the most helpful, it meant that i was not alone in this. i am a compliance officer, so a lot of technical things are not in wheelhouse, but if i have questions i know there is a community of people who are at least willing to help if possible. this means a lot. i received a plethora of posts after i introduced myself, and it was reassuring. thank you.
No technical articles but I found these cool.
Rack studs instead of cage nuts. I've always hated cage nuts...https://community.meraki.com/t5/Off-the-Stack/Cage-Nuts/m-p/11238/highlight/true#M306
This one inspired me to clean out my gear bag. I now keep everyone power cord bag i get. https://community.meraki.com/t5/Off-the-Stack/Recycling-the-power-cord-bags/m-p/6165/highlight/true#...
I like @PhilipDAth's post about default wireless security. It highlights a serious problem that really needs to be fixed.
Totally not trying to schmooze the thread owner but this was by far my favorite thread in the forums. I learned a ton about other users configurations and best practices. Truly a checklist of important items.
I found the love for SkyusDS in the following posts a sweet treat!
Will you be mine, alternative connection medium? Sorry I am already married.
My favorite post on our MDM Profile/Agent thread here was by @Melissa! I was waiting for this feature for months and was excited to finally have it in my toolbox.
I am also am a huge fan of the thread here about DEP. Lots of participants, I always laugh when @PhilipDAth tells us Apple folks to move to Android!
It is great to see Meraki showing some light heart to tough network people!!
I love Meraki's way of doing things, how they treat clients, the details they have ... I fall in love with Meraki!!!
Thank you all! This was a fantastic thread. I've just announced the winners of the drawing-for-mini-fridges, if you're curious to know!
