We want to congratulate and thank everyone that helped this site and community grow healthily into what they are today!

If you can find your name among the top 72 users in the first two pages here, we have a surprise for you!

The element of surprise!
Hoping to get a reaction with that joke... (。ˇ艸ˇ)

We want to send you a token of our appreciation for being among the most prolific users in this community! As such, we're sending you a little box, inside which you'll find:

A T-SHIRT!

T-SHIRTS!!!!!!!

STICKERS!

STICKERS!!!!!!!

A BEAKER-STYLE MUG!

MUG!!!!!!!!!!

I'll be reaching out to you later today with a link to a form: be sure to fill out the form as soon as you're able to do so! You'll have two weeks to do it, after which I'll close the form and take care of sending all of the swag your way! It should take from 6 to 8 weeks for the package to be delivered to you!

If you're not on the list, don't worry too much about it — we've got some extra swag stored we can send to you for events and such!

Thanks to all of you for making this site great!

    $\begingroup$ Awesome news! Does the t-shirt (or the sticker) have the URL on it? I'd love to publicize some (e.g., at conferences). $\endgroup$ – Geoff Hutchison Feb 12 '16 at 17:46
  • $\begingroup$ @GeoffHutchison It does not, no. $\endgroup$ – JNat Feb 12 '16 at 17:52

    $\begingroup$ Oh wow. I don't even feel I'm worthy for this - I guess this means that I will have to answer some more questions now! $\endgroup$ – Gimelist Feb 12 '16 at 21:15

    $\begingroup$ This site helped me get my BA and it turns around and decides to give a thank you gift for using it. I'm humbled. Thanks to everyone who has made this site what it is: users, mods, and devs. Please keep up the amazing work. $\endgroup$ – John Snow Feb 13 '16 at 5:32

    $\begingroup$ This is a very nice thing that you are doing. I agree with Geoff - I would love for this swag to have urls or site names. Regardless, if I have my t-shirt in time for the ACS meeting in March, expect me to be wearing it one day. $\endgroup$ – Ben Norris Feb 14 '16 at 11:38

    $\begingroup$ Here's a reaction for you: $\ce{Nicolau + TUS -> Nicolau}^{*}$, where the asterisk indicates a long-lived excited state! $\endgroup$ – Nicolau Saker Neto Feb 16 '16 at 21:55
  • $\begingroup$ Well, that email brought me back, so I guess I'll have to answer some meatier questions, rather than the fluff I poke at when I'm tired. O_O $\endgroup$ – Aesin Feb 16 '16 at 23:38
  • $\begingroup$ Barely made it. I am on the third page. $\endgroup$ – Simon-Nail-It Feb 17 '16 at 14:43

Swagtacular thanks to the Stack Exchange team!

Being one of the proud users on the list I can only saw I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw the e-mail arriving. It’s great of you to honour contributors in the way you decided to do.

But seriously, thanking us users is not enough. We have to thank the awesome people that make this thing possible, too! No, I’m not talking about our bosses/families/friends who have to endure many a user spending too much time on Stack Exchange. I want to thank you!

Thank you, dear Stack Exchange team, for building a great site, for allowing us to participate here for free, for caring for the community and for keeping it together with events such as this one or Winterbash! Without you, we all wouldn’t be here (but we would have had much more free time on our hands ;)).
