see that idea has been floated around (selling TR stuff like you describe) since '99 and some ID-10-Ts-in-charge poo-poo'd the idea, and since then every time it is brought up, the new great-minds-in-charge poo-poo it too. weird.

Mugs would be cheaper

by Skidoggeruk In reply to well they give away IPods

They could reward the usual suspects with a mug now and again. IE longest running strand, best Q&A, etc

Think the ipods would be to get the more occasional visitors interacting again. (Bit like me.)

Do you just copy-and-paste this response?

wordworker:
Wow, you always manage to find the t-shirt threads and post the same response over and over (and over).

Yes, the idea has been around for a long time. And wordworker (through his many aliases) is always quick to remind everyone that we're idiots for not doing it. However, throughout the past 6 years, there has never been sufficient member interest to make it a full-blown TR store.

It is definitely something we would like to explore; however, as with many ideas, there are always competing priorities. We've been trying to focus on creating a better Community experience on-site.

Part of that includes rewarding our members who participate with prizes (iPods are the current one) and TechRepublic merchandise (we've got tons of coffee mugs right now). We're hoping to expand both the prize offerings and the merchandise.

Thanks,

Yes, a Coffee Mug would help me out!

by ccthompson In reply to good luck!

Im just a poor Irishman with no coffee mug. I have to drink coffee soaked up from a rag, because I have no coffee mugs. People in the office make fun of me, and they show off their swanky coffee mugs to me, then tell me to get back to work cleaning up that spilled coffee.

Once in a while when they are not looking, I can get a sip of coffee from the pot, but that burns my lips. HOT!

If I could only have a coffee mug, I would be king of the company!

We drink coffee IPods don't hold coffee very well. Slides all around and I've ruined more ties than I can to mention trying to drink coffee from my IPod.
