thwack Monthly Mission - May 2014

Community Manager

Is this year going by fast or what?  It feels like I was putting together the January mission just last week. We're already into May and if you're anything like me, you've been planning your summer vacation(s).  Another thing we may have in common is having trouble putting work down even when you're out of the office.  Of course your reasons probably involve ensuring your end-users are taken care of while you're gone, I simply have separation anxiety from the "thwackPack" if we aren't in touch every few days.  Luckily, I work on a SaaS based platform to make changes on the fly.  And for all of you IT Pros, DameWare Remote Support 11.0 provides support to end-users whether you're in office or on the other side of the world.  Let's take a trip around the world to learn more on just how DRS 11.0 can make those work-related tasks a breeze while you're enjoying a Mai Tai on your next vacation.

May's Mission

Embark on your journey in this month's mission, Expedition DameWare.  During your travels, we'll be giving out a $25 AmEx card each day for those who answer that day's question within 24 hours of it opening (i.e. those who answer Day 1's question before Day 2 opens, will be entered into the Day 1 gift card drawing).  Answer all 20 questions correctly, and you'll be entered to win 2 round-trip airline tickets to choose your own adventure!  Follow the rules below to play.

Mission Rules

  1. 1 question will open every business day until the end of May for a total of 20 questions.  Once a question opens, it will remain open until the end of the mission.
  2. Answer each question within 24 hours of it's opening, and be entered to win a $25 AmEx gift card for that day.
    1. Gift card winners will be announced in the comments below the day after a question has opened (e.g. Monday's winner will be drawn on Tuesday, Tuesday's winner will be drawn on Wednesday, etc.)
  3. Answer all 20 questions correctly and be entered to win 2 round-trip airline tickets to a destination of your choice (retail $1000.00 USD).
  4. Only your first submission to each question will count - double check your answers before submitting!
  5. 150 points will be awarded for each correctly answered question for a possible total of 3000 points.
    1. Points will be awarded at the end of the mission.

I gathered that from the blogger.com part, I was just telling you that it wasn't letting me see it. That tends to be a common reason for blogging

congratulations Adam Boyd

Hurrah - Congrats Adam. I'm really getting into this monthly mission - I like the way its run. Interesting and decent prizes up for grabs. Well saying that, I'm excited about the 150 points per correct answer!! (What's wrong with me??)

Make a wish, you might be the next winner!!!!

Noticed that the 150 pts are not being added to my account as the questions are being answered correctly. Will the addition of pts. be a manual process as it was with the April 2014 mission?

"150 points will be awarded for each correctly answered question for a possible total of 3000 points.

  1. Points will be awarded at the end of the mission."

I missed it the first time I read the blog too - I wondered why I had 3 right questions and no additional points

Multiple answers are needed to correctly answer some questions, but I am seeing radio buttons that only allow one answer.  Anyone else get this happening?

ssadlocha
Level 12

I haven't seen this yet. Which question are you referring to? Every one I have answered, through Day 4, has been structured correctly.

esther
Level 12

If you see radio buttons that allow one answer then choose the one answer you get from the hints given

Note to graphics department - Liberty Island is in New Jersey, USA. Just sayin'

- Yes I grew up in Jersey and yes it is a point of contention with folks from the other side of the river.
