Update: packages have all been sent. If you are not living in the USA, your package may take significantly longer to arrive. Your patience is much appreciated! However, if you have any issues or questions about your prize, please direct them to Katey, as she will be handling prize fulfillment from now on.

As a thank you for being awesome, if you are on the top 5 pages of…


… we'll be sending you a little care package shortly:

  • Arqade t-shirt in your size
  • Arqade sticker
  • Arqade mousepad

As a lot of you probably know, we already did a round of Top User Swag Packages for Gaming.SE, but that was back when the site was Gaming.SE! Now that the site is Arqade, you clearly need some updated swag! And because this community has grown so much and has been so active lately, we've decided to extend the giveaway to the top 5 pages instead of the top 2 that we normally do.

You can expect to get an email soon with details on how to confirm and provide your mailing address and size preferences (see sizing guidelines here).

The t-shirt


The sticker


The mousepad



(for anyone else who wants this swag, but isn't on pages 1-5 of the all time top users -- unfortunately we aren't able to gift this swag to everybody, but it will be available for sponsored events as needed)

    Ha ha! I was so close to making the cut-off it's humorous. I'm the 10th user on page SIX. Ah well. Congrats to those with the extra 140 rep I lack. :) – johnjon Jul 20 '12 at 15:40

    The blank mothership's a little disconcerting to me for some reason. Either way, thank you, Lauren and Jin! – FAE Jul 20 '12 at 15:43

    Many thanks! Can we get an idea of what company is printing the shirts so I can look up a sizing chart? – authenticgeek Jul 20 '12 at 16:18

    How long until someone makes a real game out of the Arqade logo with mothership as the final boss? – BoltClock Jul 20 '12 at 17:45

    @MatthewRead being symmetrical wasn't my concern because I wanted it to look like an actual game screenshot. I also didn't want to put a site url there because I felt it was too "advertisy," especially on a shirt. normally I don't mind, but with this design I feel a URL ruins the mood. Ideally, if you wear this shirt out, your friends will ask you "hey that's a cool shirt, where did you get it?" Then you'd tell them about the awesome arqade.com and its community. – Jin Jul 20 '12 at 18:05

    If feedback on the details is still useful, I'll just say that an 8" round mousepad sounds a little bit cramped. Us gamers use giant mice fulla buttons and sling them around wildly, y'know :-) – Kevin Reid Jul 21 '12 at 1:50

    @galacticninja - don't worry they post - free - worldwide. I live in the UK and have received several top user swag packages. – ChrisF Jul 21 '12 at 17:01

    @Shinrai (and everyone else who is interested) - no, do not be worried. It takes a long time to get the t-shirts made, and we waited until we had everyone's sizing information to order them. Patience is a virtue :-) – Lauren Aug 16 '12 at 15:27

    Got my package yesterday as well! Awesome stuff. Also, @Foxtrot, I was considering the exact same thing. :D Joel Spolsky's signature on it and all... – Alexis King Aug 28 '12 at 23:46

Besides the items mentioned a the original post, I got a pen and a felt pen (thank you!).

Do you know if that felt pen is good for whiteboards? How about writing on CDs/DVDs? Or only for writing on paper?

I don't want to misuse it, so what's that pen primary use?

(not sure if this should be a comment or an answer)

    It's a sharpie, which means permanent. Use it for labelling your CD-Rs. Ha, I crack myself up. CD-Rs, what are those? – MBraedley Sep 13 '12 at 10:51
  • DON'T write on your whiteboard with it! If you write on paper, make sure it won't bleed through. It's very permanent. – David Fullerton Sep 13 '12 at 14:30
