THWACK Monthly Mission - November 2018

THWACKcamp "The Mission"

When you throw a two-day, worldwide virtual IT learning event, you’d better have some interesting material to cover. This year, to satisfy thousands of attendees, we pushed ourselves to find those IT hot buttons, engaged in valuable conversations with industry experts (including our own), swizzled in some thought leadership, and showcased new product introductions—all the stuff we hoped technology pros like you would find interesting.

Now, if you happened to miss this year’s THWACKcamp™, or even if you attended, we’ve built this month’s mission around all 18 sessions worth of IT goodness. Sample each session, answer the weekly questions, and you could walk away with one of our latest prizes.

Time for all you THWACKademics to get busy. Let’s get this mission started!


Use the mission’s resources to complete the tasks and answer the questions for a chance to win!

Correctly answer each question during the week and you'll be entered for a chance to win the weekly prize.

Correctly answer all 20 questions over the course of the month and you'll be entered for a chance to win the grand prize.

150 points are being awarded for each correctly answered question. There are 20 questions, which means you can earn a maximum of 3,000 points for this mission.

Poll started as suggested!

Oops, did not see this. Sorry.

It's all good, Ben...we'll keep it on the QT!

Level 11

i like how you added Maybe

Btw this is the link of his poll

Thanks, zhymmer​, for the link. Oversight on my part...

That poll is for a mobile application. We are looking to gauge a mobile responsive website, no app required. Though, the inverse is still interesting.

Level 8

What I get for being too eager


Level 11

Haha! Not good sheepy28​, question 19 was very much opinionated, I would be concerned!

Level 14

Hopefully there isn't a 'correct' answer for Q19          

Level 12

Q19 / Nov 22 - hilarious and no hint... LMAO

Level 14

Someone re-named SAM so that it matches its tables? It's been a long time since it last did :

Either I missed it or Server & Application Monitor didn't make the list of applications to be thankful for. LOL

Either way, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


Level 14

Missed that.  SAM is the only one I have so it would be my pick.  Oh dear.  I'll have to lie to get the points.      

Level 12

Have a Happy Thanksgiving south of the border -  a little jealous for us Canucks.

How'd you guys wrangle a two-day holiday out of the deal and a day of Football???? You obviously have better negotiators...


Level 12

Some products may have been missed. I didn't want the list to extend soooo far down. Besides, it's Thanksgiving...I wanted ya'll to pick something, get some points, and enjoy time with your loved ones.

Happy turkey day ya'll! I'm out.

Level 7


The question in November 22 is different and i answered it wrong. Can I answer again the November 22 question? As you notice, I don't have any selected answer. Thanks




Another Mission done! It was ThwackTastic.

Level 12

Hurray! Finally, I have crossed 100,000 points with November monthly mission. I was supposed to reach this goal by last month, but could not complete the mission .

Thank you ALL, who has supported and helped me in reaching this goal


Level 12


Level 9

marcoswithanoh Is there a reason why the Nov 21st question is locked out, but yet I was able to answer both the 22nd and 23rd this morning?  Very odd.... 


Level 9

I think Question 18, Nov 21 should be unlocked due to the holiday.

Level 16

Congratulations uniswtc  !

Level 12

If you give a refresh, question 18 should now be open and available for the rest of the day as well. Drawing for the prize will take place tomorrow.

On a side note, I'm really uncertain how anyone is getting Question 19 incorrect, but I have seen folks showing where it's just a blank text box, which is weird. Let me know if this was/is the case for anyone else.

Level 9

Thank you!

Level 12

Congrats uniswtc 

Glad this month is over.  Worst I have had in a long time. 


Oh well, probably had something to do with the month being mostly watching video which I can't do very well due to restrictions.  Maybe I will bet back on track in December. 

Shucks, darn holiday got me


Level 10

Same here...was worth it for the week off though...

Level 7


The holidays were a nice break from reality and now back to the grind.

Level 14

I think there's probably some holiday some where every day of the year. I visited Sri Lanka recently & they have loads of public holidays every month.

Level 9

Kicking myself.  Really wanted a shot at that standing desk but forgot to login over the Holiday weekend to answer the final 2 questions. 

Level 12

The standing desk seemed to be a big hit in general, which is great because it's an amazing product. I'll def make sure to make note of that and let Danielle know.

Maybe it'll see itself again in the upcoming rotation of prizes into the new year.

Level 12

Also big shout out to the following winners for the end of this Mission's prizes!

Week 4: rhrohde

Grand Prize: rwagner

Mission Shortcut: pgaryga

Level 14

Quite a few people here demanded standing desks.  Now they are all set to the sitting position.  I guess that fad passed.


Wow! I've actually won something, this never happens to me!

Thank you very much.

Level 12

No problem, pgaryga! Those Nanoleaf lights are super sweet, I think you're going to have fun messing with them.

I still want one for my home office petergwilson​ of these days I'll pull the trigger on ordering one.

Congratulations to all the winners this month!  Great Mission, everyone!

Level 10

Congrats to all the winners. I will congratulate you all by remaining seated in my new, top of the line, stationary desk.

Level 12

Congratulations to all the winners.  Can you imagine using stand up desks at the prosecution, defense and stenographer tables in a courtroom?  They could all just ignore the bailiff when he/she calls out "All Rise".   Or if the judge uses one then how will the bailiff know when to say "please be seated" if the judge doesn't sit first?   Strange things an old man ponders sometimes. 


Congrats rhrohde​ and rwagner

Level 12




Hmm the fat lady hasn’t sung yet gimme gimme my points.

Level 12

Level 9

Thanks all!  First time winner on the monthly missions for me too.  I've been a member since May 2016.

Level 10

I can't find the December mission.  Was it cancelled this month?
