Hi everybody,

It's been exactly a year since MemSQL Start[c]UP 2.0 — Round 2, but I still have not received my T-shirt. Am I the only one with this problem?

    They presented T-Shirts to participants of the onsite final of MemSQL Startcup, so those T-Shirts exist.

    I may send you a photo of T-Shirt if this can ease your pain.

      What? Is it you trying to joke or something? If so, you better ease my pain by stopping writing silly stuff like this.

        Yes, that was just a joke. I didn't want to offend you, sorry.

          I don't get your point. I'm OK with jokes and Max, but in my reply to the original post there was nothing about any kind of disappointment, let alone pain. That's why I considered his comment as a bad attempt to joke, or look witty/arrogant, whatever.

      I want the picture :)

      Rubanenko do you know what is worse option ? If you have not received t-shirt, because you didn't win it ;)

You are not the only one. No T-shirt here either.

I didn't participate, and I did not receive a T-shirt either.

Much more important question is why MemSQL doesn't hold a contest this year? I have even prepared a present — nice logo for them!

Thanks. I have sent a message to person responsible to it. Let's wait for information from him.

This is the biggest problem when a small company organizes such an event. When Google or Mail.ru organizes it, they have people inside the company who will handle it, will be held responsible for it, and have experience in it. For us there's no such person, and we need to figure it out ourselves, and the person responsible for it eventually happens to be myself. And sending hundred of t-shirts is not an easy task :o)

Two years ago Mike helped us a lot by finding a person who helped us sending them out. And even then it took us 10 months that time to send out all of them.

Last year we didn't arrange anything with the same person, and delegated it to a person within the company. Unfortunately, you can see how well it worked out. Same as many of you, by now I successfully forgot about those t-shirts, resulting in an even bigger delay. I will escalate it right now and make sure they are sent out within some reasonable time.

Answering another question raised in the thread, unfortunately, we will not hold start[c]up this year. Primarily because we had an insanely tight release schedule this summer, and had no time to prepare good problems, and we prefer to prepare our problems ourselves and not delegate it to people from outside.

Since we started talking about T-shirts, I also haven't received it from FBHC 2015. Who else in this situation?

    I'm in the same situation as you. Is there some e-mail to ping someone from FBHC team?

    Same here. Guess this means that large companies also have difficulties in handling this task. Already gave up my hope for FBHC shirt, hope it will go better with GCJ one.

    Strange because I received my FBHC 2015 shirt soon after the contest.

    Sometimes when you couldn't receive T-shirts, it's not the contest organizer's fault. It may be your local post office's fault. I have a friend, sometimes I could receive my T-shirt, but he couldn't.

    Btw, fortunately, both I and my friend received our T-shirts :D

Oh, now I've remembered... What about CROC t-shirts? :)

On an almost competely unrelated note: recently, my parents found an old notice from a delivery company saying "you have a package here, contact us", where "here" is 400 km away. It was most definitely a t-shirt. Apparently, they had my address, so why couldn't they just send the package? :D

Since nobody told me about that notice and I was away at the time, it's more than a year old now. I suppose I should contact that company soon, but they probably won't be happy about it and if the t-shirt is gone by now, I won't be happy about it either.

Hello everyone. I am t shirts distributor. Therr are several reasons why you didnt receive a shirt: There was no needed address in your profile at the moment of distribution The information was invalid or incorrect (address of university or organization in most times is invalid due to postal laws of different countries) Border control didnt allowed package to transmit Post could just loss shirt (it happens)

We are always make 2 attempts to send t shirt if it's returning back. I have no access to all base yet. I will take a look about all memsql shirts that didnt arrived to participants. For every successfully package I have unique post tracking number. Wait till Sunday please

About croc shirts- it wasn't CF distribution, not mine

    That's why I need to read whole chat before write something :( I was responsible for Memsql startcup 1.0 t-shirts, but not for 2.0 Anyway, those tips might be helpful if you didn't receive your t-shirt or another prize.
