Well, December is here and you know what that means... 'tis the holiday season!  December is also a huge milestone in our world as it marks a full year of the ever-so-popular monthly missions here on thwack.  We've given away everything from Chromebooks, a Star Wars Xbox, a couple of GoPro cameras, a drone or two, too many tablets to count, and just about every other newly released piece of technology on the market today.  We did some reflecting over the past year and decided to bring it full-circle this month to close out the year.  But before I give you this month's contest, I need to make an important announcement.  There has been a very persistent push from the community team to open these missions internationally and I am overly joyed to share with you that the we are cleared to open this contest to the UK and Germany starting with the December mission!  That being said, lets get started!


December's Mission

Welcome to The 12 Days of SolarWinds! For 12 days, a new 3-question quiz will open that focuses on a product or bundle in the SolarWinds suite.  And to help with your holiday shopping, we're giving away 12 $500 Amazon® gift cards!  That's one $500 gift card for each quiz.  The quizzes are really quite simple as we've included hints to each question that take you to the answer.  Follow the rules below and you could be $500 richer this holiday season!
