    Thanks very much - slightly ironic as a 32K+beta user on SO, a physicist and professional programmer I get an Eng Lit T-shirt!

    Love it! (well, so far, just the idea, but I just know I'll love the actual goodiebag when it arrives, and I have complete faith in my main man Jeff that it will!) Seriously, I really do think EL&U is a good thing both to exist, and to be part of. I'm gonna enjoy (un)baring my chest and announcing my allegiance to the world at large. Definitely one up on your average rock concert tee-shirt, thanks Jeff! Jun 15, 2011 at 3:31
  • oh man, i just made page 21 Jun 22, 2011 at 13:30
  • Wow, cool idea. I'm guessing I missed, alas -- I'm there now, but I have no idea if I was a week ago. :-( Jun 23, 2011 at 0:19

    OK, dunno whether I'm being impatient, but I still haven't received my swag package :(:) I responded to the email as soon as I got it and I live in NJ. Hope it arrives soon!

That e-mail was as appreciated as unexpected.

I was wondering, though, about something. It's just to be sure, but in the e-mail you say "no matter where in the world you live", does that mean that also the shipping is free?

And the package will include one item of each category? Thanks again! :)

  • 6
    yes it is completely free and contains each item listed in the question. Jun 14, 2011 at 11:20
  • @Jeff sorry to bother again, but I forgot to specify that I'm out of the U.S., exactly in Europe... Thanks again! :D

    @alen as it says in the email and form, "Just fill out the below form and we'll get it mailed out to you ASAP. (International mailing addresses are OK!)" Jun 14, 2011 at 20:36

    I think what @Alenanno is trying to say is that he's not really in this world. Europe isn't a real place, is it?

  • @Alenanno: I'm sure Jeff isn't one of those (lamentably not non-existent) Americans who think that Italy/Europe/Britain/England are all "more or less" the same place. We do exist seperately and collectively; without Latin we'd have no English; and without English we'd have no EL&U. Have faith! Jun 15, 2011 at 3:38
  • Ahah It's not a crime to want to be sure, is it? :D

Kewl! One question, though: what exactly do you mean by "your Programmers Stack Exchange account name"? I.e. for me, is that "Martha" or "1547" or something else?

Edit: ok, so I started typing "Martha", and it filled the field with "http://english.stackexchange.com/users/1547/martha". I take it that the field should be filled out with a link to your user profile? (In that case, shouldn't the field be a leeetle bit wider? And better labeled?)

Edit 7/8/2011: I still haven't received my swag. Should I be worried?

  • I had the exact same issue. And the fact that it said "Programmers Stack Exchange" threw me a bit as well =D

    @dusty I changed it to say "your account name on the site" Jun 14, 2011 at 20:35

    @Jeff Atwood - Danke. And I should say, for both the change and the swag.

  • Interestingly, mine did not auto-complete my profile link (Tried in Chrome and IE9) Have others had it happen one way or another?

  • @Dusty: Me as well, although I guess it shouldn't be a problem... :D

  • By the way, I wrote "Alenanno" and that's all... Hope that works :D

Um... I got the e-mail, I swear I did, but some time during the night I seem to have lost ground and am now the top user listed on the third page. Obviously I hope to improve this state of affairs as quickly as possible, but I figured I should let you know I'm not trying to scam you guys... really.


Awesome — thank you for a lovely surprise present! Another question: for shipping within the US, do you use USPS, or a courier (eg UPS/Fedex)? The place I’m staying at the moment goes by different addresses depending on who’s delivering, for obscure reasons which I don’t understand.
