Friday Fun: Cheers to the team!

Happy Friday, Community peeps - wherever you are around the globe!

I am really glad that I get the chance to start this weeks Friday Fun thread. After many years in the Atlassian ecosystem, I have built a strong affinity with the importance of teams - at work, in sports, at home, in charity, ...

Great teams are built on trust. On finding out how we can rely on each other in tough times. In celebrating big and small wins together!

When teaming up, it is really helpful to show appreciation to your companions every now and then. And yes, doing so in a visual way can really put a smile on your face. Here's an image I personally use every now and then as a token of appreciation:

When do I use this? Usually when I need help solving a technical challenge and someone helped me find that missing piece. Or when I know someone has struggled to solve something and talking it through helped him/her figuring it out. Doesn't have to be big, just a small sign of recognition for a team accomplishment ...

The digital world is full of funny emojis, pictures, memes and other visuals that are perfect to not only hand out the proverbial kudos, but also put a smile on your team mate's face:

So, I am really looking forward to be inspired by your favourite imagery to say Cheers, to the team and maybe extend the collection! 😛😅🎉

Bonus points for an accompanying story! Have fun and enjoy Friday, the weekend, and - why not - the big and small smiles for many days to come!

Hi @Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_ - here are my favorites. One comes with a story! 

The first one below I used recently when my team had to do our first demo of work we did in a recent sprint in a System Demo for one of the SAFe ARTs that we support. The team did an amazing job doing the demo in front of over 100 people! We all worked together to put the demo slide together and do the demo! It was great teamwork!  

The rest I use in different scenarios to inspire my team to do great work and congratulate them when they do! I also use a lot of gifs in MS Teams.

Not sure if I can come up with a good one for every post, but it's worth a try 🙈

After spending any significant time going down rabbit holes and heads banging on desks, the following gif strongly conveys the stoke the team feels now the ordeal is over (for now). It is also a great way to prompt a meme filled celebration!
