This is just an idea I had, after talking to my fellow moderators on the site.
We discussed if going out of beta could be timed so that we were going live around the SharePoint Conference 2011, since this would mean we had an extra opportunity to promote the site on SharePoint 2011.
One way of promoting would be to have either a badge or a t-shirt, and then have some price we could offer, for example if you were spotted wearing that badge/tee.
I could talk to some of my friends that have a booth at the conference and hear if we could drop off some Swag there -sort of an underground event on the event.
maybe there are even possibilities for doing some free-style speaking about the site on the information booths in the vendor area?
Any ideas are welcome, so please give me your input on this idea and other ideas for promoting the site on SPC11!
