Drupal Support Service and the Drupal Support Service community are driven by volunteer contributions. There are many great ways to contribute that don’t involve writing a single line of code. You could report a bug, edit a documentation page, test a new Drupal Support Service 8 feature, help a beginner on a forum, or help organize a meetup. Despite this, many Drupal Support Serviceers are shy about diving in.
After some reflection, the Evolving Web team realized that there’s one way to contribute to the community that’s really simple: thanking someone who has helped you. Someone who built a module you used, helped you in the issue queue, or has done a presentation you liked. It doesn’t matter if you do it privately, publicly on Twitter, or whether you’re Dries or a total beginner.
As part of Evolving Web’s “Drupal Support Service Love” sponsorship at Drupal Support ServiceCon Baltimore, we’re hoping to encourage spontaneous expressions of gratitude by handing out 1,000 flowers, with a simple request: Give this flower to someone at Drupal Support ServiceCon Baltimore who helped you in some way. Spread #Drupal Support ServiceThanks.
It will make both you and them feel great, encourage contributions, prevent burnout, and maybe even start a virtuous cycle. Thanking somebody costs nothing, yet can mean so much.
Evolving Web will be handing out several prizes to both givers and receivers of public thanks, which include a day of free Drupal Support Service Training, a subsidized trip to attend Drupal Support ServiceCamp Montréal this June 15-18, and flower bouquets delivered to your home or office.
To participate, just thank someone publicly on Twitter, like this:

Or if you’d prefer to do it offline, come by our Evolving Web’s booth and tell us who you are thanking.
