🏅THE ATLYMPICS 🏅

Announcement @2x.png

Esteemed Community Members,

We are excited to announce the 2021 Atlympic Games. Spoiler - you’ve already qualified!

The three values of Atlympics are connectingsharing and learning. These values align closely with our Community’s goal of promoting new relationships, sharing knowledge, and helping teams work better together.

The Atlympic games will run from July 23rd to August 8th of 2021. Sign up here to participate in the first ever Community Atlympic Games!

The Atlympics will test in equal parts your Atlassian Community spirit and product knowledge. But mostly we hope that you’ll meet new friends (and/or worthy competitors depending on how much you want to win 😂).

Quick rundown of the Atlympics:

  • You will fall into three types of Atlympic athlete: Community LeaderCommunity Member, or Atlassian Team Member. You will only compete against the people in your category.

  • Once your sign up, we'll email you a link to join the Atlympics Community Group where you can access training materials, view leaderboards, and connect with fellow athletes
  • We will have 12 events in total, with categories ranging from Product (Trello) to Teamwork (Playbook)

  • We will update this post at 8AM PST on July 23rd, linking out to all 12 of our challenge categories

  • The top three competitors in each category (Community Leader, Community Member, or Atlassian Team Member) will receive a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal (both in badge and physical form).

  • We’ll also send overall Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals to the competitors who excelled cross-category

  • We will have both opening ceremonies to meet our fellow competitors 🤝, and closing ceremonies to congratulate our new friends  

  • While the Atlympics are an individual competition, we will also publish some geography data at the end to give shoutouts to countries whose members went above and beyond!

Keep an eye on this post - we will add a schedule of training opportunities/social events soon! In the meantime, please introduce yourself on this thread! Bonus points if you post a photo of yourself doing an actual sport.

Could you explain the different types of athlete (Community Leader, Community Member, or Atlassian Team Member) please ?

@Veronique DUFOUR , the first two are defined by your current standing in the Community while the last has to do with actually being an Atlassian employee. 

Community Member - any user in the Community that has not yet obtained the Community Leader status. 

Community Leader - defined in the Community FAQ as “The most knowledgeable and enthusiastic members of the Atlassian Community have the chance to become Community Leaders, an elite group of top contributors who host events, answer questions and write articles about Atlassian products and related topics. This in turn allows them to unlock perks like access to Leader-only spaces, discounts to Atlassian events, special swag, and, of course, fame and glory.” 

Atlassian Team Member - a Community member that works for Atlassian and contributes at a “next level” in the Community. They often will chase down questions for Community Leaders when they cannot or should not answer posts.

The later two will have a lozenge/badge beside the users’s name in their posts.

I'm usually not an Olympics fervent supporter, but I might change my mind because of this event!! It seems fun :)

(and, let's be honest, as France is not going to win the Euro football Championship, let's focus on another sport for now lol :D )

@Rodney Nissen Not sure if ice hockey is included in the Summer Games but I really admire the spirit!! 😭

If they can play Hockey in Huntsville, AL, I'm sure it can be considered a "Whenever" game
