Do you want free phpBB merch?

Post by battye »

Do you want a free phpBB mug or phpBB deck of cards? :mrgreen:

mugcards.png

Here are the rules!

1. Do something good for the phpBB community between now and September 10. It can be answering a support question, helping someone with a coding problem, answering an extension/style question, etc - anything which is helpful to someone.
2. Post the link (it must be to something on phpBB.com) to what you've done in reply to this topic.

Out of everyone who posts a link to something in this topic (only one entry per person, so no spamming! ;)), one person will be randomly picked afterwards and I'll mail the item of your choice out to you. :)

I took over an extension that wasn't working properly. Coded it to work properly and got it validated. Does that count?

Only joking, in all fairness the guide PS wrote is well written,


Here's mine: viewtopic.php?p=15586676#p15586676

I'm surprised there hasn't been more entries, a trump topic gets replies yet something being given away for free don't get much traction, worlds gone mad.

What have you devised to draw lots for the winner?
What strategy did you come up with apart from excluding those who cannot participate according to the rules?

----------------

Thinking back to the title of this topic Do you want free phpBB merch?, it seems clear to me that the goods have been produced in more than one copy, it wouldn't make sense otherwise this operation, you want to tell me that you only made one copy of the two items? I don't believe it even if you pay me. ;) So let's look at it this way, a great way to publicize and support phpBB once the intent of the production is made public, nothing wrong with that and I support the initiative that I find better than Viglink, am I wrong?

battye made the items in the original post on his own, at a local shop, I believe in a single copy.

In general, the problem with physical goods is shipping cost. I recently mailed a small box from New York to Germany; this cost $23. Using something like cafepress is an option (and then they handle all the logistics issues), however their shipping rates are also fairly expensive, and I have been less than impressed with the quality of the prints. Furthermore, the quantity of people willing to spend money on swag with the phpBB logo on it is quite limited. In the past, promotional stuff has been limited to giveaways at conferences, our hackathons, etc.

And the winner, by way of dropping pieces of paper with usernames on the floor, closing my eyes and picking one back up...

Dan Stylez! :mrgreen:

Let me know whether you'd prefer the mug or the cards (and PM me your address) and I'll get that posted out soon.

And you are definitely overthinking this 3Di :lol:
I got 2 of each printed at a nearby shop because I'd never seen anything like that without a big minimum order before, and I thought it would be fun to give something away to the phpBB community.
