Welcome Wednesday: Let's build a story together!

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Nov 17, 2021

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

via GIPHY

I thought of something slightly different to do today.  We are going to build a story one sentence at a time.  I'll start with a beginning prompt.  Then, as a response ad a single sentence to our story.  If this works out, we should have something entertaining by the end.

"Once upon a time, there was a very kind and helpful Jira Administrator."

Ok it's up to all of you to help fill in the details.

Have a great rest of the week!

Hi there! I am a Salesforce Product Manager and looking to find ways to make JIRA more efficient for product management and roadmaps.

Hi, @Xenia Chilkowich.  Welcome to the community!  May I suggest you start a new thread on that topic in the Jira topic group?  I worry it will get lost in this thread :(

Wrap up...

Once upon a time, there was a very kind and helpful Jira Administrator, and they had the most flawless, well organized Jira in the world and their name was Tate Gunn but everybody called him 'Tater' after his favourite snack.

Tate was always very focused on Jira and adjusting with all the punctual details about your team, so much so that you would frequently find him at the bar after work.

Luckily, the bartender, who was his close friend, had also worked as a Jira Administrator in his past role. The bartender was famous for making a drink called the Full Re-Index, so powerful it would stop you in your tracks. But Tater could drink three Full Re-Indexes in a single night.

The next morning, Tater would enjoy time with his children. He and the Tater tots would scrounge the beach looking for Idle Jira users to clean up. They worked tirelessly until just before sunset deactivating these users access. With that job and out of the way, they headed back to their car when they stumbled upon a lamp. Rubbing the lamp, to clean away the dirt and grime, suddenly an Opsgenie appeared.

Opsgenie declared story points. You see, Tater was a recycle kind of person so he felt that by collecting story points on the beach, he were contributing to a better experience for all of the users, including all of his friends on the Atlassian Community!
