thwack Monthly Mission - July Edition

Community Manager

July is officially here and this month's mission is giving the Texas summer heat a run for it's money (those 100+ temperatures... gotta love 'em).  This mission is similar to one you've seen before, but we have some surprises in store.  So, what's so special this month?

July's Mission

Complete the DameWare® Scavenger Hunt - a 10 question quiz where you can earn between 300 and 3,000 points.  But, wait - there's more!  (I've secretly always yearned for a moment to say that...)  Score 100% on your first attempt and be entered to win an iPad® Mini!


We've linked you to all the appropriate documents, blogs, videos, etc. next to each question.  All it takes a keen eye and a bit of reading and watching.  Unless, of course, you're already a DameWare expert.  Just for attempting the hunt you'll earn at least 300 points.  And if you were wondering why we're giving away an iPad Mini... With DameWare Mobile you can remotely control computers on your network from iPhones, iPads, or iPad Minis.  That means support for your end-users from anywhere right in the palm of your hand.

A few specifics for this mission:

  • For each correct answer you'll earn 300 points for a maximum of 3,000 points.
  • You will only receive points for your first attempt, however you may take the quiz as many times as you'd like.
  • You must score 100% on your first attempt to be entered into the drawing for the iPad® Mini.
  • Make sure to enter your thwack username at the end of the quiz so we can attribute the points to your profile.
  • Please allow 48-72 hours for points and the July Mission badge to reflect in your profile.*
  • Drawing for the iPad® Mini will be held on August 1st, 2013 - Terms & Conditions.

* will be out of the office during the week of July 1 - 5.  She promises to start adding points and badges as soon as she returns on July 8th

Alright everyone... I'm back in the office and just finished adding points/badges to those of you who have completed the July mission.  Thank you for your patience while I was out.

Real quick, I'd also like to address why some of our contests cannot be opened internationally.  I have been working closely with our legal team to see what we can and can't do in terms of giveaways.  Unfortunately, because jurisdictions around the world have different laws in place, we cannot open most of our contests outside of the United States.  However, in the case of the , we were able to open this world-wide because we are giving away a gift card to everyone who submits (PS - get your submissions in ASAP, this mission has been extended through July!).  Obviously, when you're talking about iPads, that isn't a feasible prize to give to everyone and also takes away from the exclusivity of the prize.  Please understand we would like nothing more than to include everyone and are constantly looking for ways to do so.  However, I will say it's great to see how many international users are still participating for the fun of the mission and points.  We most definitely value all of your contributions.  Please keep coming back as you never know when we might open another contest world-wide.

Thanks,

Danielle

DanielleH,

Thank you for your comments about us, foreign customers. I understand the legal issues (previously I've worked 6 years at a Law Faculty, so I'm a bit familiar with those problems), nonetheless it's good to know that you try.

Thanks,

Pedro

Hi Danielle,

I completed the July Monthly Mission last week via my iPhone, and have not seen my points updated. I was going to message you but I am not able to add you as a friend apparently...so I thought I would reply here...

Thanks,

Better late than never! I've been so busy at work lately that I almost let this one slip by. In the drawing for the iPad mini, and it was well worth it. A very fun Monthy Mission. Thanks!

SolarWinds employees who took the test will be awarded their points over the next few days.  I purposely leave us out while the mission is going on to ensure they aren't entered into the drawing.

Thanks,

10/10 ! I used Dameware at a previous job years ago, didn't think it had grown that much ! ...too bad I'm a week too late for the points and badge though...

Currently doing the August mission... 6/6 + 1/1 bonus... it's a shame I'm not in the US (for the prize) but it's still a pretty nice way of learning about your products.
