Lina on the shirt is the best version.
I asked Mary for something signed and [url=http://shirtoid.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/sharks-with-levels.jpg]Gave her a picture of some sharks with levels.[/url]
This thread used to be about funny replies to silly questions we asked famous valve employees, the last 10 or so pages its been about begging the front desk for gifts. Nobody on facepunch cares about the shit you got for begging the frontdesk for gifts.
Just emailed Valve regarding webdev stuff, hoping for a response.
Hey guys, look what arrived today: [img]http://i.minus.com/iL6TUaZvdPAy9.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.minus.com/iffc3bokWEMAc.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.minus.com/ibhGpntylIALvj.jpg[/img] [sub][sub]When I sent her the link to this thread, I said "You must love your job, huh? So many people that like you! :D" and that's how she replied[/sub][/sub]
got my mail from Mary. got a Pyro keychain and a packet of trading cards, but it only contain Well, Scout, Dustbowl, Gravel Pit, and Sniper. that's okay, I got the Pyro keychain.
[QUOTE=GameDev;35758204]was hoping for tf2, but this is still pretty awesome. [img]http://puu.sh/s8pl[/img][/QUOTE] Does she just send out whatever she wants? Man.. jackpot. I want a DoTA 2 T-shirt.. but asking for one would be pretty.. rude. Can't buy one yet?
ask her if you can buy one if you cant, she'll say it, and you might even get a free one if youre lucky
I just received a long-sleeved shirt with a nice "The Cake is a Lie" print on it. Oh yeah.
Received yesterday. [IMG]http://www.free-community.in/upload/1/79de48b81b9d5b750221da5820aca09d.png[/IMG]

I remember when this thread was about posting questions and replies.
Didn't get any answer ever. [IMG]http://sae.tweek.us/static/images/emoticons/frown.gif[/IMG]

How long does it take Mary to (usually) respond?
[QUOTE=Gen. Cornwaffle;35810510]How long does it take Mary to (usually) respond?[/QUOTE] as long as you're patient
I sent her an email during the weekend and she responded in the afternoon on Monday (PST). I then got the gifts the week after.
I sent Mary an email on saturday, asking for goodies. I got a reply 9 hours later, but still waiting for the goodies. I geus it takes a while to ship here, so I'll be ok
[QUOTE=Mattey;35811848]as long as you're patient[/QUOTE] I had sent her a message during the afternoon (Central time) on Tuesday(it was mainly asking questions), and I still have yet to get a reply. Someone in the Episode 3 Discussion thread said [QUOTE]I was thinking they set their spam filters to block anything with "Episode 3" or "HL3" in it[/QUOTE] I was thinking, if that's true, then Gabe got none of my messages and neither did Mary. If that's so, I'll rewrite the letter to Mary, but leave out "Episode 3" in it. [img]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/funny2.png[/img] But I doubt that's true.

I mean I can understand [I]why[/I], but I'd be a little surprised if they really did that.

OH SHIT SHE ACTUALLY ANSWERED. It's almost like she reads the thread.
[QUOTE=Maruhai;35830643]OH SHIT SHE ACTUALLY ANSWERED. It's almost like she reads the thread.[/QUOTE] Or she's just a genuinely nice person that handles the massive flux of emails/questions that Valve gets. Which I think is more accurate. She seems super nice!
So guys who can I e-mail at Valve who aren't Gabe who can answer some questions about gaming as a career choice. Chet? (If so; what's his e-mail?)

I know this isn't really relevant but [QUOTE=Gen. Cornwaffle;35826078][img]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/funny2.png[/img][/QUOTE] You know you can use [noparse]":v:"[/noparse] right?
