A slightly cheeky question, but I was wondering if the notification was triggered for me reaching 1500 karma as I still haven't recevied my t-shirt?
I reached 1500 karma 6 weeks ago, I've got the badge (https://answers.atlassian.com/users/46/andrew-frayling/badges/) and Michael Seager very kindly offered via Twitter to hook me up, but I still haven't received anything and haven't received any official notification.
Was my t-shirt shipped? Are there problems with the notification triggers again?
A cheeky question I know, but I do like my Atlassian t-shirts :-)
Hey Andrew, just wanted to let you know I'm on this. I'll let you know once I have news.
Edit April 11, 2013: hey all, for the next release of Answers we've automated the entire process, which takes us slow humans out of the loop. Right now everything is done by hand, which is difficult with the amount of requests we get. This improvement will be online very soon.
Edit April 15, 2013: hey all, as promised we automated the process, you can get your free tshirt/backpack/jacket here. More info can be found here.
I just wanted to ask, whether you got an information about me getting the Karma King Badge. This happened two weeks ago and I did not hear anything of you.
I really like these Atlassian T-Shirts, especially the Angry-Nerd-Shirt you gave at the JAX Conference. But Karma King is also nice and a lot more rare :-)
So what is Atlassian's process in order to receive your T-shirt. I am not talking about earning your karma points but what happens after you earn your points? How long should a person wait before asking about their T-shirt? How long after giving Atlassian your information does it take to ship your T-shirt?
I'm the same way- passed the mark some time ago with no shirt yet. I consider it to be ransom for my lack of work lately on the CSUM plugin and SHBL authenticator, so I've kept quiet until I recover actual karma, which is not reflected in my current karma score. If you haven't gotten your shirt, really think about what you could be doing to make Atlassian better; maybe you need more real karma. Also, maybe we could take a collection to buy t-shirts or pay for shipping. Good luck!
Hmm. That's wierd. I just posted a comment here, then clicked on back where it was re-editing, and reloaded the page and it deleted my comment. Anyway, I was going to say that I haven't gotten my shirt either, but I attribute it to my real-life karma not being at 1500 yet. I need to make sure the CSUM plugin and SHBL authenticator I help with are well taken care of first. If you haven't gotten a shirt, try to improve your real-life karma and the metaphysical t-shirt will come.
Greetings everyone -
The process is not yet automated and we are running behind :-( Sorry everyone!. We are getting the next batch of t-shirts custom printed for everyone and will be in contact via email shortly to get the best address for you. The laptop bags are also scheduled to be shipped in the next few days, (though they seem to take a week or five when going through customs in a few countries). Just a bit longer till you can make your geek friends jealous (and royally confuse technophobes).

There are, we just didn't get them to the site in time. It should be later this week that they're on swag. You can see the design here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/ANSWERS-958. Sorry - we almost got all the features in, this was one we almost made before the release...
I am Atlassian's resident swag master. I program managed getting swag.atlassian.com live and am in charge of keeping it going. I helped the Atlassian Answers team get the new Answers swag on the store and they've done a great job automating the process of getting the items to you.
I am aware of international shipping issues. Delays and customs issues have quickly riddled our gift giving process. Certain countries have become more of a pain than others. Myself and Powertex, our swag vendor, are looking into it.
In the meantime, if you have any questions related to swag, which can't be answered from the FAQ on the store, please feel free to reach out to me directly (swag_at_atlassian_dot_com). We want the gift giving process to be as smooth as a new laptop's space bar.
Ya, UK customs likes yout swag a lot, they value it - both items I got recently had surcharges, but hey :)
The 10K answers bag is neat, but I can't fit my 17" laptop :( the side entry aspect seem to expect something smaller, a mac perhaps, the older 'default' Atlassian bags are top loaders, fits the 17" fine :)
Sorry guys: @Renjith & @Dieter, the order is going out today for new t-shirts.
@Jobin - We used the same address we sent your t-shirt to. You should definitely be expecting one (heck, you are up to 21,000 karma!!!) Please let me know if it doesn't arrive in the near future.
even me .. one of my friend got an email from Atlassian after crossing 1500 karmas .. They are now giving $1500 coupon for a $1500 T-shirt .. Its a very cool red color T-shirt .. http://swag.atlassian.com/Assets/ProductImages/CUAT12S-M62-la.jpg
