September brings relief in many forms; the kids go back to school, a much needed 3-day weekend to celebrate our labor, and for some of us, a hint of cooler weather. This month we're also "relieving" you from the typical monthly mission quizzes and knowledge testing to focus on you, the IT Pro. This month we want to hear about how you got to where you are and how you worked through the bizarre, comical and most confounding problem of your career.
It's time to tell us how you #SolvedIT! Each week we will release a new topic or "trope" and ask you to share a true-life story from your IT career based on that theme. The submission with the most votes at the end of each week will receive their very own customized cartoon strip based on your story. Weekly winners will be entered for the grand prize along with 4 additional submissions hand picked by our Head Geeks for a total of 8 finalists. Our Head Geeks will then choose a grand prize winner who will walk away with 2 VIP passes to Comic-Con 2016 in San Diego!
Looking to pick up some more points? Each submission will earn you 250 points. Also, participants can earn an additional 10 points per tweet for sharing their story with the hashtag #SolvedIT and tagging @thwack. (capped at 1,000 points) This is also a great way to earn more votes for your submission(s)!
