Hi everyone,

I know I'm a little late to the party... let's call it recovery, but I wanted to take a few minutes to draw your attention to the thwack store http://thwack.solarwinds.com/store.

We are really excited to provide a little bit more incentive, an extra nudge as it were, around gathering points through your helpful posts, your responses, your uploads, your downloads -- your engagement with everyone.


The store provides a venue for you to redeem points for SolarWinds merch.

Some cool things to make note of:

  • You don’t lose your place on the leaderboards when you spend your points (there is a historic record of points used for leaderboards and a separate accounting system for spendable points)
  • We will be expanding our list of actions for which you can earn points, so stay tuned:
  • Shipping is covered by SolarWinds for the the US and Canada. <-- We are working on solutions for international shipping... we were just too excited to keep a lid on the store until we figured it out. We will figure it out.


Let us know what you saw at the shows that you really liked and want to see in the store. We have some ideas, but we welcome more. Bring them on.


Please browse our store, check out the FAQ, and enjoy the well-deserve swag.

And, please join me in recognizing DanielleH, spugatch, and randyramirez for their roles in bringing the store to life.


Thank you,
