We want to congratulate and thank everyone that helped this site and community grow healthily into what they are today! Yes, yes, you graduated a long time ago, but you recently got an update design and we also have some brand new site swag to give out to you all!

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





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\$ @PlasmaHH I'm sorry I'm not familiar with this community, but why 2015, and what particular date (doing this requires an exact date)? We considered also pulling the top 72 from when the site originally graduated in 2011(?) but it would just pull a bunch of users who don't really visit the site anymore along with the normal crowd. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @mostly because according to stackexchange.com/leagues/58/year/electronics/2015-01-01 I would be under the first 72 ;) on a more serious note, the page you linked to is purely total rep, isn't it? It's probably hard to find good criteria, but in that list there might be people that didn't actively do a lot in the last year or so, but I guess "rep earned by questions posted within the last X years" is a hard thing to figure out \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Passerby You're supposed to put them in a frame, on the wall above the fireplace. Not wear them, of course. \$\endgroup\$

Any chance of being able to order a sticker?

    \$\begingroup\$ Got mine last friday and wore it all weekend and now it stinks. How rude of it. Where are people putting their stickers? Is it a car windshield thing or should it proudly go on a window or door so that no foul passover fate will befall us? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I put one on my laptop. My laptop is kinda full of stickers tho, so I figured it would be nice to add one. \$\endgroup\$ Jan 24, 2017 at 9:54

My parcel arrived yesterday as well. Looking forward to the confused looks ("What's that logo from?")

Shine a different light on the subject?

We should start a caption contest.

"(can) We communicate"

or "I think the emitter is missing the point...."
