Opt-In is now closed. Thanks everyone, We will let the lucky 40 sysadmins know shortly


I'm very happy this has gone over so well, with 50 people opting in. If you didn't get a membership this time keep contributing as this won't be the last time or way we give back to the people that make this (and all Stack Exchange sites) so great!


We are sponsoring 40 of our top users with memberships to LOPSA. If you are not already a LOPSA member and are interested in a membership, please answer this question. Voting doesn’t matter, but if you want to say something about why you are interested in this membership, please feel free.

We will keep this question open for a week. At the end of the week, we will sort the users who answered this question by rep earned this calender year and take the top 40. We will then take the emails associated with your account and pass them on to LOPSA (So make sure you have an accurate email in your profile).

For more information about LOPSA and why we are doing this, see this blog post.

    I don't rank high enough to qualify anyway but seeing as I've already dropped my membership to SAGE-AU due to its total ineffectiveness I can't see how a LOPSA membership could be of benefit to anyone over here. – John Gardeniers May 25 '11 at 21:40
  • @John: Unless I'm misunderstanding the criteria, it looks like you're #36 for the calendar year 2011. – Skyhawk May 25 '11 at 22:29
  • John: Most local groups are only as good as their members/participants make them. – Robert Novak May 25 '11 at 22:55
  • @Miles, You're right. I stupidly counted 5 across instead of 4. – John Gardeniers May 26 '11 at 1:46
  • @Kyle, given that I would qualify but am not interested will that membership simply become void or will it flow down to the next person in rank? I'd personally prefer to see the flow down option to maximise any possible benefits to either LOPSA or SF members. – John Gardeniers May 26 '11 at 1:55
  • How does oner see his rank for the year? – ℝaphink May 26 '11 at 10:02
  • @Raphink, I simply went to the users page, clicked on "year" and (mis)counted how far down I am. – John Gardeniers May 26 '11 at 10:12
  • @John thanks. I guess I didn't realize that I haven't been that active this year ;-) – ℝaphink May 26 '11 at 10:19
  • @John, it will be top 40 that answered this question sorted by this years rep. Since people might already have memberships or may not be interested, I made this question so it could be on an opt-in basis. That is why I converted your answer to a comment. – Kyle Brandt May 26 '11 at 12:13
