Hello, 

I recently became a "Wordsmith" after reaching my 500k mark, and I was (probably rather childishly) looking forward to getting a commemorative T-shirt as a reward for my efforts! I read somewhere that I should have gotten an email with a personal URL link to order it at the last Friday of the month, but have not received it yet. Is this still a thing? :)

Thanks!

    Hi John,

    The campaign is actually run on the 10th of every month, not on the last Friday of the month (not sure where you might have heard this?) :)

    I can't find you on last month's list, so my assumption is that you hadn't reached 500k units translated by June 10th. I will keep an eye out for you in this month's list when I run the campaign :) 

    Thank you for your patience!

    Hi Lara,

    the information that the email is sent on the last Friday of a month appears on the following website:

    https://support.gengo.com/hc/en-us/articles/231441267-What-s-a-Gengo-Wordsmith-

    "The Wordsmith reward also includes a Gengo t-shirt. Starting from December 2013, on the last Friday of every month, Wordsmiths will receive an email containing a unique URL that they can use to redeem their prize. "

    Kind regards,
    Aleksandra

    Hi Aleksandra,

    Thanks for this! I will definitely be changing this now because that information is very outdated.

    This is the most recent article, which we published last year, and doesn't specify dates :) Even when I say here I run the campaign on the 10th, that's really approximate, as sometimes the 10th falls on weekends, etc :) 

    Thanks,

    Lara

    In the same boat, lol. I can't believe how much I was looking forward to it, lol! It's a great motivator!

    @Cheryl - You actually came up in the Wordsmith list this month! You should have received an email from me about it yesterday (unless you have unsubscribed from our email communications). Please check your Spam folder and, if you received the email, please follow the instructions to let me know your shipping details. If you can't find the email, please write to me directly at lara.fernandez@gengo.com. Thanks!

    @john.anderson.wn - I LOVE that idea! I'm making some changes around our milestone campaigns and I would definitely love to consider something for a 1M unit milestone (it's also been brought up in a different thread in the past!) I need to consider carefully what can feasibly be done, but a hoodie is an amazing suggestion! Thanks!

    Hi Lara, 

    I hope you're doing well in this year that's proving to be weird as so far (at least for me)! 

    I wanted to refloat the hoody idea and the next "rank" up from Wordsmith :) Still got a way to go, but all this time I'm spending home means I'm in front of my computer a lot and am picking up a few translations ^^. 

    The kid in me would love some extra motivation for those next 300k odd words I have left to go before hitting the 1 Million mark.

    All the best and stay healthy and safe, 

    John

    Hi John,

    Thanks for bringing this up again! Please know that I never forget about the 1M milestone :) I can't promise anything as these depends on budget, plus the ongoing pandemic in the world is not helping with shipping logistics unfortunately. I will definitely continue to keep this in mind in case the opportunity to implement this milestone comes along.

    Thanks,
    Lara
