THWACK Monthly Mission - November 2020

Community Manager

TC_mission_header_900x300.png

For many of us, November marks the start of the time of year filled with celebrations. For the THWACK® community, though, it’s an extra-special month because we welcome one of the most joyous of occurrences: THWACKcamp! For 9 years, members of THWACK—along with the wider world of monitoring mavens and IT professionals—have come together for two days of learning, sharing, and virtual camaraderie.

It’s only fitting for this November Monthly Mission to be all about THWACKcamp. Every day this month, youll be quizzed on your knowledge of THWACKcamp past and present. Between now and the big event (Nov 1213; register now!) well see how much you know about THWACKcamp in general and what you remember from previous years. But halfway through the month, well switch it up and see how well you paid attention THIS year, with questions highlighting conversations from the best THWACKcamp yet.

If youre new to the SolarWinds® and THWACKcamp family or you simply dont like tests, quizzes, or brainteasers, we want to ease your concerns. Every question comes with a hint to point you in the right direction. And of course, you can always ask the incredible THWACK community for help!

We’re excited to see everyone participate in the penultimate THWACK mission for 2020, to read your comments and feedback each day, andof courseto see you at the big event itself.

Happy Monday everyone. 

First Monday of the Month and First green tick too. 

 

Level 12

Morning all ...

@yumdarling - I note all the sessions for THWACKCamp are listed as CDT... as a consequence  this will make the vast majority of sessions outside of my work day. As I am also a foster carer to 2 young babies, when at home (hah, I mean when no longer working at home) I have zero time to myself to log back in on my personal time.

So, question.. are all the sessions to be recorded so that those of us in diverse time zones can also benefit from this camp?

@stuartd yessss. All of the sessions are recorded and will be available shortly after THWACKcamp ends. 

I care for two kids at home (all dang day) too, so I feel your pain. 

Level 9

Hmm, I really don't see anything from the hint about when the first ThwackCamp was? Maybe its my lack of caffine. I did find the press release about the Inaugral one for anyone else whos blind like me https://www.solarwinds.com/company/press-releases/20121010-solarwinds-it-community-thwack-presents-i... 

Level 11

@trf  answer right at the top of the page.

Level 11

I really hope I get all greens this month. I could use a prize! Would be a great pick me up from the wfh blues 🙂

Level 11

All I can say is that I will be very disappointed if there isn't at least one question about Rob Boss.

@trf - it's in the text. 

Level 9

@alansmith @superfly 

In the question hint link or the page I linked? To be clear I have a green check, but I even used the control+f to search for the year since I know the correct answer and was not finding it on the hint link. Maybe I am being sent to a different page or something..?

Level 11

@trf - You had to math to get the answer for Day 1. It wasn't handed on a silver platter this time. Sorry.

Level 11

Unless I'm missing something, the answer for today is "None of the above"?

Level 11

mark.healey 

No

You are missing something

Level 9

Yeah, that took a bit more (well, 1 more click I suppose) digging that I immediately expected; but the answer was soon in hand.  Though I can't help but feel the agenda is a bit session-ception 😛

Level 11

Now I feel dim, checked the break-out sessions, missed the obvious! 🤣

Level 11

Well that was a little sneaky...

Level 9

@unwiredmedic I didn't see a x-th annual or anything to math from either... still don't. Maybe I am just really blind

Edit: there it is... I blame a lack of caffeine

Level 11

*cough* It's Sprawl Blasters, not Sprawl Busters 😀

Level 12

YouTube still being blocked at work.  Have to check it out later.

 

On another note got me some headphones and a jacket coming.  🙂

Level 9

OMG, you have to be very quick to see the answer to day 3... it's at 0:37 in the video 😁

Level 7

For day 3 I had to pause the video to see what channel it was set to, it shows it for a split second. 😄

Level 9

This is a test because I'm not getting any emails from Thwack any more. Anyone else have that problem since the new platform was launched earlier this year?

Level 9

Wow, this is the first time I don't get a big red X!   👨‍💻

Level 20

Wow I don't know if I'll be able to afford thwackcamp this year!

Level 14

Is it just me or did the missions section vanish today?

Level 9

starting the week good! got it right!

Level 11

The link for today's question just throws you to the main thwack camp sign up and agenda page that doesn't show the twitter handle. 

https://twitter.com/hashtag/thwackcamp?lang=en 

Level 12

@alansmith its actually in the middle of the page.  I was also thinking the same way, but did a search and found it.

Level 12

@yumdarling Week 2 Q9 can you check the answers please?  I've been marked incorrect, but based on the hint it looks correct.

I knew I should have waited...

 

Level 9

Week 2  Day 9

@yumdarling same for me, I was thinking about it,  but it says "SESSION PRESENTER"

Community Manager

Thanks for letting me know that the question is confusing, overseas friends. I reset it and made sure the answers match what's on the hint 🙂

 

Let me know if there's still any confusion!

Yum

Level 11

Same for me, can you please reset the question for today

Level 9

Hi @yumdarling, day 9 question is still confusing and I got it wrong - even though I think I'm right....

Maybe a statement to say that the "Welcome Remarks" is not a session?
