UPDATED: Food for Points 

If you are a Weblogger or Contributor did you know that you are eligble for a T-Shirt? I mean some of you may say “Wow a t-shirt, big deal” well to be honest isn’t it though?

Take a look at these people they seem quite happy to have one! By the way if you have pictures of SDNers with an SDN Contributor t-shirt, please post them on Flickr and give it the tag: sdntopcontributorstshirts.

image Who is eligible and how do you get one? Well as Mark told us awhile back there are actually two different types of T-Shirts available.

I’m Blogging this on SDN

xK SDN Member

For the SDN Member shirts the x stands for your point total. The shirts start with:

  • 1/4K = 256 Points
  • 1/2K = 512 Points
  • 1K = 1024 Points
  • 2K = 2048 Points
  • 5K = 5000 Points

Now this means two things, one if you are a Weblogger (approved and have published at least one Weblog then you can get one of those shirts and second if you have more than 250 points then you are eligble for one of the SDN Member t-shirts listed above.

Now there has been quite a bit of confusion about how to get your t-shirts, so I am here to tell how we’ve attempted to simplify the process. Keep in mind we are working on this process so your input is greatly appreciated!

Update:: In your SDN Business Card there is a field for address, now you must fill in this field, you DO NOT need to make it visible unless you want to, simply fill it in. Then a bit further down is a field for Additional Info, what we ask is that in this field you put T-Shirt: [size] just change the [size] to XL,L,M or S. Then each week when we update the “Crossign Over” section of the Contributor Corner Homepage we will email those on the list and ask that they ensure their mailing address and T-Shirt size is correct then we will send out the T-Shirts. This means if you do not update your Business Card and do not give us a T-Shirt size you will not get a T-Shirt.
image

Oh and before you ask, most SAP employees will not be able to alter their address field, in which case do not despair we will find your in-house mailing address and either bring you your shirt or mail it to you.

image

Now in order to implement the system we asking everyone to please have patience and give us some time, sending out T-Shrits to so many people has proven to be very challenging and we are doing our best.

    Hi Craig,
    today I have received the following eMail and it looks just a little suspicious to me. It does relate to the SDN and names this blog as a reference, but it doesn’t come from the SAP, which I would have expected.
    Please give advice.

    Dear Craig,

    i have received 3 contribution mails from Lisa for SAP Network Contribution Award-8, SAP Network Contribution Award-07, SAP Network Contribution Award-9. i have following questions:
    1. the 3 mails i have got have the order of 8,7,9….why this order is there…logically it should be 7,8,9 or 9,8,7 depending on what is the meaning of these awards……
    2. what does these awards 8,07,9 means….
    3. since i got the mails from lisa in this 8,07,9 order, so does this mean that these mails are faque or these mails can be genuine……
    4. the SAP Network Contribution Award-8 mail i received on 11/03/07 and the next day i have sent my address details and t-shirt size to Lisa but till today i haven’t received any t-shirt….so normally how long does it take to send a t-shirt – do you have any idea about this thing….

    Thanks,
    Rajeev Gupta

      Hi Rajeev,

      I do not know what the 7, 8 or 9 means. Perhaps its a internal code of another world. In any case I’m sure the mails are not fake.
      The t-shirt delivery time differs depending on your location but could take up to 3 weeks. If after 3 weeks you still haven’t received your shirt please write Lisa a mail.

    Hi Craig,

    I have already received 2 t-shirt’s , 1 for 1/4 & 1 for 1/2. Now I have received mail for 3rd T-Shirt.

    I have a suggestion that along with T-Shirt, if SDN could also acknowledge our contribution by awarding a certificate of milestone crossed, it will further boost the morale of Contributors.

    As we go higher up the ladder, the milestone distance are increasing. It is recommended that the milestone gap should be of maximum 2K. Also it will be appreciated that along with T-shirt, if addition acknowledgement if received in some form. Maybe if we an x milestone, we qualify for the magazine published by SAP, or qualify for a training in new technology, have meets of SDN members occasionally, IPOD as a appreciation (as mentioned by some friends, who have received it), & so on.

    I have shared my views through this write-up.

    Regards,
    Rajesh Banka

    Hi Craig,

    I have already received 1 t-shirt’s , 1 for 1/4 and waiting to recieve another T-shirt’s,another for 1/2 K.

    I have a suggestion that along with T-Shirt, if SDN could also acknowledge our contribution by awarding a certificate of milestone crossed, it will further boost the morale of Contributors.

    It will be highly appreciated that along with T-shirt if SAP provides any trainings in new technology for those contributors.

    Finally please think on the awarding a certificate of milestones crossed along T-Shirts.

    Regards,
    Sreeram Kumar.M

    Same problems here. I still haven’t received my t-shirt after being able to reach 1/2K and 1/4K about 6 months ago. I am beginning to wonder whether SAP would really send a t-shirt to me here in the Philippines.

    The certificate suggested below would also be great. I think that’s something that you can post on the wall of your office 🙂

      Hi Pavan,
      Please be on the lookout for a mail from Lisa from ‘Another World KM’ asking for your shipping information and t-shirt size for the 1/2K in the next week. When you confirm your details for her please also note that you did not receive the 1/4k shirt.

    Hi Craig,
    I have received 3 types of t-shirts, 1/4K, 1/2K and 1K. But The 2 of the 3 have not nice color. I just prefer blue, green (grass-like green), navy or grey.
    If it is possible, the color should be changed.
    Thanks for t-shirts
