It's First Post Week! All first-time posters are eligible to win

Community Manager

This week, we’d like to recognize those of you who make the leap and write your first post here on the community.


So… everyone who posts for the FIRST time this week (12am PDT on Monday, April 9 — 11:59pm PDT on Sunday, April 15) will be entered into a drawing for Meraki-branded gear. We’ll be giving away 10 prizes, so your chances of winning are high!


UPDATE: First Post Week is over! Thanks to everyone who posted. Here's the announcement of the winners.


But what, might you ask, counts as a post? The answer: new topics, replies to topics, and comments on blog posts all count! However — there must be content in the post, and if we determine that it doesn’t fit into our community guidelines, it won’t be eligible.


Here are some easy ways to get started:


Also, to those of you who have already posted and aren’t eligible for this contest, never fear. We’ll have plenty of other contests in the future for which you WILL be eligible!


Post away!


The prize! Meraki's got you covered from head to toe :-)The prize! Meraki's got you covered from head to toe 🙂

Wonder if @PhilipDAth is eligible 😉 


Welcome to the forums to anyone new!

@mmmmmmark - Haha!! Though - Philip is very close to 2,000 posts (and will probably be over it by the time I submit this comment!). Maybe I'll run a separate contest called "2k posts week." The number of entrants will be fairly limited 😛

I'm sad, I just made my first posts last week. 

Community Manager

Aw, sorry @vassallon! But - there will be many more chances to win swag, I promise! 

Getting noticed

Curse my lack of lurking and love of socks, foiled by previous posting!

Community Manager

@AStoddard - I have many socks to give away, never fear! You will have more chances to get them. The argyle pattern is pretty great, I must say.

I just got an email for this today at 1:43pm PT.  :(. 

Community Manager

@JGoto - Oh no! I neglected to update my Welcome email from last week! Thanks for pointing out the error, though. I'll fix it right now for future email sends.


And, never fear, we have lots of contests here. You'll be eligible for one soon!
