Happy New Year Everybody!

We hope you had a fantastic 2019, and are looking forward to launching into an even better 2020. However, as we transition into the new year, we have some unfinished business from last year to take care of: announcing your December 2019 ITKE Community Amazon Card Winners!

  • $25 Amazon gift card – Points Player – Subhendu Sen! [930 points]

There were lots of other great comments and discussions that also deserve recognition from last month. A big thank you to everyone for their continued participation in spreading their knowledge throughout our community!

If you’re feeling lost about these new award tiers, be sure to check out Tom’s blog post about the awards changes from August. In case you need a refresher, here are the categories below!

  • $100 Amazon gift card: Most Thoughtful Answer – Give an answer that goes above and beyond the call of duty to qualify. Are you an expert in a particular subject? Hunt down a question and answer it with your expertise so that others can benefit! This prize can stack with the prizes above or be won by another user, so don’t be shy about submitting those answers!
  • $75 Amazon gift card: Most Thoughtful Answer (Runner-up) – Same as above!
  • $50 Amazon gift card: Most Thoughtful Answer (3rd) – Same as above!
  • $50 Amazon gift card: Friendly Face – A neglected category! The internet can be a scary place, especially for those who don’t use it often or stumble upon the wrong communities. Show a little love to new users by welcoming them and encouraging them to get comfortable here. Interact with your veteran neighbors – we’re all in this together. After all, the more users this community has, the more helpful it will be for everyone! And who knows, they may end up answering questions alongside you down the road. A good example of this is Todd’s comment on this user’s question about honeypots.
  • $25 Amazon gift card: Points Player – Most points obtained in the month. There is something to be said for someone who interacts the most with our new questions. To discourage spam, only one comment per question will be tallied for this. Points for this award will only be tallied for questions asked within the last 6 months.

Best wishes to everyone in 2020, we are excited for another great year in this community!

See you next month,
