Virtual Beers

Contributing to Foswiki is thirsty work. And every so often, someone in the Community does something outstandingly cool, or puts in a ton of work, or helps you out in a big way. At times like that, you often feel motivated to buy them a beer - hence the Foswiki Virtual Beer award.

We're very practical people, though, so if you award someone a virtual beer, expect to be called on to convert it to a real beer* when you meet the person face to face!

* If you don't like beer, don't worry! Virtual beers can be freely converted to the vice of your choice e.g. Belgian chocolates, Marmite/vegemite sandwiches, Cuban cigars etc.

ALERT! Don't forget that giving one person too many virtual beers can give them a sore head.

ALERT! Caution: please wait at least 8 hours after the consumption of beer before attempting to operate a wiki!

Please add to the end of the list!
