Bring Back 1000 Post T-Shirts!

By: rixopod | 06-04-2013 20:00

I know giffgaff once (maybe twice?!) sent out t-shirts to people who had hit 1000 posts.

I think giffgaff should bring this back as it sounds like a really nice thing to do.. and I would love to wear a giffgaff t-shirt :smileyvery-happy:


As shortylumber said.. It may not be classed as a big milestone as there are so many people now but I don't think there are lots and lots of active people who have posted more than 1000. (I'm not saying there isn't a decent amount!)


You could only do active members or have somewhere to apply so you can see rough numbers and don't do the people that are no longer active. (Do it in waves.. say everytime there is payback or something)


It is a great motivator thinking that giffgaff could send you something for reaching a milestone like that..(It took a while!)


Edit: Also.. What happened to 10,000 post fleeces? (Thanks Matthew :smileyhappy: )


(It also shouldn't cost gg that much..)



And I am not just doing this because I hit 1000 posts! (Well.. sort of.. I have been thinking about whether it still happens for a while)



It could also lead to new recruits! (Thanks  simonefaye78 !)


Edit: You could give it to members who have been on the forums for x amount of time who have hit 1k posts to stop spam posts (Maybe a year?) Thanks  joolzian !


Extra: Thanks to everyone who kudos'd! We just need more now :smileywink:

Thanks to everyone that reccomended extra milestone ideas.

"I think the extra milestone is a good idea as it will reduce spamming.


And thanks to pr08rad for this idea:

Perhaps once a set limit is agreed, the postee should Apply for the shirt of mug, or fleece etc. that way you at least know they want it, as some might not be bothered. But you would need a real tight control over spam posting


Something like 1000 posts (Maybe 1500?) and 100/150/200 kudos and maybe no warnings to your account?"

 Another possible idea, thanks to  liamkhan is give it to people who reach a certain rank - This would work well as you move up ranks with posts+kudos+accepted solutions!

I like T-shirts! I was meant to receive one last year for being a ‘giffgaff Hero’ in their 10th Birthday year. It was meant to be being made in the size I specified, but there was a delay with the suppliers, I understand! I am still waiting because Lockdown meant that the team were no longer working a HQ so no one was there to post me my box of goodies!

It is another idea that has been around for some considerable time and in this time much has changed, not least to the community with the new hosting making this no longer pertinent
