The Points Contest has returned!

The Points Contest is BACK and better than ever! The rules are the same, but the prizes are even prize-ier!

 

For the next four weeks (today through April 2nd), you’ll earn points just for participating in community discussions. The more points you earn, the more chances you have to win some fantastic prizes.

 

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 multi-charger cable and an “I Cloud Manage” sticker

  • Tier 2 requires 100 points and will have 25 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a multi-charger cable, an “I Cloud Manage” sticker, and a pair of Meraki socks

  • Tier 3 requires 200 points and will have 10 randomly selected winners who’ll receive a multi-charger cable, an “I Cloud Manage” sticker, a pair of Meraki socks, AND an MT sensor w/ 5-year license

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 Friday (starting next week) I’ll post a list of everyone who has reached Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3.

 

When are the winners chosen?

On April 2nd 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: Thursday, March 4th, 2021 at 9am PST through Friday April 2nd, 2021 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

Is it possible to get socks for my whole company instead of the MV32 if I win the grand prize?

@AutomationDude we might be able to accommodate that! Depends how big your company is :-). We can discuss if/when you win!

My company is small.  Myself and 2 part time employees.  2 pair of socks would cover us, one pair for me, and a sock for each employee!

It uses PoE (or you can also use a coax PoE injector).  So you normally need a PoE switch or a PoE injector.
