If your name is on the first two pages of this page as of Site Graduation you'll be hearing from me soon... but that's good news! this time
We want to send you a little care package, as a token of our appreciation for being awesome and making this site the success it has become! Inside this little box, you'll find:

A T-SHIRT!the tagline has been decided on, and we're sticking with the tagline "Making code slightly less wrong."

T-SHIRTS!!!!!!!

STICKERS!

STICKERS!!!!!!!

AN AWESOME RUBBER DUCK!

A RUBBER DUCK!!!!!!! ZOMG!!!!!!!

I'll be reaching out to you at some point this week: be sure to fill out the form as soon as you're able to do so! You'll have two weeks to do so, after which, I'll close it and take care of sending all of these wonderful items your way! I'm not gonna offer a precise prediction It'll take precisely between 42 and 56 days for these to arrive at your doorstep.

If you're not on the list, don't worry too much about it — we've got some extra swag stored we can send to you for events and such.

Thanks to all of you for making this site awesome!

    \$\begingroup\$ Question about the duck: is it actually rubber, or is it one of those fake-rubber ones? \$\endgroup\$ – 410_Gone Jan 6 '16 at 15:26

    \$\begingroup\$ Please note that the concept of first two pages of this page is not as precise as one would like it to be. On the non-mobile website, it goes up to EBrown (with 5355); on the mobile website (and on the mobile app), it goes up to jonrsharpe (10.1k). \$\endgroup\$ – SylvainD Jan 7 '16 at 14:01

    \$\begingroup\$ The printing on the t-shirt will (can?) be closer to the neck? \$\endgroup\$ – palacsint Jan 8 '16 at 19:45

I don't want to seem ungrateful in any way, but would it be possible to have a choice between a Code Review mug and the Code Review Rubber Duck? It could be an option on the form we fill out for example.

I just see myself using a mug more than a rubber duck, and I don't have kids to give it to.

    \$\begingroup\$ Many have already filled out the form, it's too late to choose - just send us a mug anyway! \$\endgroup\$ – Mathieu Guindon Jan 7 '16 at 20:45

    \$\begingroup\$ KIDS!? No way that my kids, even if I would have had some, would get to play with my rubber duck! \$\endgroup\$ – Simon Forsberg Jan 7 '16 at 20:55

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm going to do the same thing with the duck that I'd do with a mug--set it on my desk at work. \$\endgroup\$ – nhgrif Jan 7 '16 at 23:36

    \$\begingroup\$ I think Rubber Ducking will serve me better in work than Mugging will. \$\endgroup\$ – SuperBiasedMan Jan 8 '16 at 10:31

    \$\begingroup\$ No, sorry :\ Most sites only get two swag items, and for those that get a third item, the third one is supposed to be really special and not something that would make sense regardless of the logo that's stamped on it — hence, the duck :) \$\endgroup\$ – JNat Jan 8 '16 at 18:31

    \$\begingroup\$ @Morwenn I pour hot coffee into myself every day. It's the best way to make a duck productive. \$\endgroup\$ – RubberDuck Jan 15 '16 at 0:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ @RubberDuck At some point when you're too used to pour coffee into yourself, it doesn't make anything anymore :/ \$\endgroup\$ – Morwenn Jan 15 '16 at 0:27

Are the stickers going to be washable, that is, if I put a sticker on my mug, then put the mug in the dishwasher, will the sticker get damaged?

If I slap a sticker on my Tesla (I don't have one, but you seem to suggest you can slap one on there with the image), and it rains, does the sticker get damaged? Can I drive my car with stickers through the carwash?

    \$\begingroup\$ Can I drive my car with stickers through the carwash? Sorry, no because you can only stick them on a Tesla as it is clearly shown and you don't have one. \$\endgroup\$ – Heslacher Jan 21 '16 at 16:31

    \$\begingroup\$ The stickers are printed on vinyl and laminated so they should hold up pretty well. That being said, I would not recommend putting them in the dishwasher. The stickers are also removable/repositionable, so my guess is they have the potential to come off during a car wash/dishwash. \$\endgroup\$ – JNat Jan 21 '16 at 17:56
