Ever wanted to tell someone that they really helped you out or saved your day, but only knew their twitter account? Ever wanted to give your team "badges" for doing the little things right and ultimately reaching the team goals?
About a year ago, my answer was: "Yes!" to the second question.
During Thanksgiving last year I was inspired by the #h5yr movement in the Umbraco community ("High Five You Rock" started by Alexander Kjerulf at CodeGarden '10) to give out little "Thank You"s to all my co-workers for being awesome. As per usual at ProWorks, the idea turned into a web app idea and the idea of You Rock Stickers was born.
We didn't get to start on it until this summer and even then we wanted to try it internally before spending too much time on it. So our "Minimum Viable Product" was the whiteboard at the office. We started giving stickers to each other at our project meetings for jobs well done and documented them on the whiteboard.
People liked giving and recieving stickers, so we setup a "Startup Day" and built out the site. Take look at the results and try it out at http://yourock.proworks.com/
Currently, you can sign it through Twitter and give stickers to other Twitter users. Facebook and plain old Email are on the to do list, but you can share any sticker on Facebook and Google Plus and it looks good.
Give it a try and let us know what you think about the project and any cool sticker ideas in the comments below!
