It’s the Explorers Hub’s “Most Likely To” Contest!
April 2019 is all about sharing content that is “most likely to” help you with, or teach you something about, New Relic. For two weeks in April (15th - 28th) we are asking all of you to share your wisdom and experience in these categories/themes:
We are looking for your most creative, custom solutions to these use cases that we hear about all the time. New Relic does an excellent job in all of these area mentioned above, but we realize that a lot of the time, our customers do a lot of handy, custom work to make New Relic perfectly fit your business needs. It’s time you were appreciated for your ingenuity!
How to Enter
Participating in the contest is easy! Click into the appropriate category (linked above), where your solution closely aligns, and reply with your solution “most likely to” solve that issue. We are looking for NRQL you and your team have written, custom Synthetics scripts, Alert policies, APIs, or any custom “thing” you are most proud of, and is likely to help your fellow Explorers. Don’t be shy!
- Choose which custom solution(s) you want to share with the community.
- Choose the category that best aligns with what you are sharing.
- Reply in the category’s thread with custom solution - include screenshots and links where applicable.
- Wait for poll to be added by New Relic.
- Watch the votes roll in!
How to Win
Once you share your solution “most likely to” help, the community team will come in and add a poll. At the end of the two weeks, the most awesome custom solution will win a Nintendo Switch!
We have invited our own Jemiah Sius @jsius —our new Senior Product Manager—to choose our grand prize winner! Jemiah will take into account the number of votes, creativity & innovation, and other factors to determine who will win…
… a Nintendo Switch!!!
And all of you who snag the most votes in each category will win an Explorers Hub trophy to proudly display to your envious colleagues. Everyone who participates also gets a developer badge!
We can’t wait to build this space full of real-life custom solutions from all of you. Eager to see who is the “most likely to” win!

New Relic “Most Likely To” Contest
The New Relic “Most Likely To” Contest (the “Contest”) will be held from April 15, 2019 to April 28, 2019 (the “Contest Period”). Participants may be eligible to win the prize detailed below.
How to Enter:
During the Contest Period, all eligible participants who submit a valid entry at discuss.newrelic.com (an “Entry”) will be entered into the Contest. An Entry must include a custom solution the participant has built (and that New Relic does not make available out-of-box) (a “Custom Solution”) to identify and/or solve a business issue, such as an NRQL Query, a transaction, or an API (and provided no private or personal data is included), and whatever other requirements are stated at discuss.newrelic.com.
The Contest Period shall close at 11:59pm PST on April 28, 2019. There is no limit to the number of Entries a participant can submit. Participant’s submission of the Entry constitutes their acceptance of these Official Rules.
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT IS NECESSARY TO ENTER THIS CONTEST.
License Rights; Identifying Participants:
The Contest allows participants to share their Custom Solutions with the wider New Relic community, so Entries may be visible to the public. Each participant grants New Relic and any other participant or member of the public who views its Entry a non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to use, reproduce, distribute, modify, create derivative works, publicly perform and display and otherwise exploit such Entry (including any screenshots, content, code or other materials provided with the Entry). New Relic may also identify each participant (e.g., using its name and company or New Relic username) in connection with its Entry or the Contest (but has no obligation to do so). New Relic may take down any Entry from the New Relic website at any time, without notice or liability.
Each participant represents and warrants that it has all necessary rights, consents and permissions to submit its Entries and grant the rights above.
Selection of Winners:
One (1) winner shall be determined from eligible Entries on April 29, 2019. The one (1) participant whose Entry New Relic determines is the best Custom Solution, which may be determined based on a combination of factors including but not limited to the most votes by other Contest participants during the Contest Period, creativity, or usefulness, shall win the Contest. The winner will be notified via discuss.newrelic.com and via email using the email address provided in the Contest. Upon signing an eligibility affidavit and waiver, the winner shall be mailed the prize detailed below. If a winner does not claim their prize within two (2) weeks of the notice, they shall forfeit their prize and a new winner shall be selected.
