My cakeday!

(Simon B) #1

Today marks one year since I joined Monzo. It seems Discourse, our forum software has recognised this and provided me with a cake emoji. How thoughtful. Happy cakeday to me!

It’s been a crazy year and I’ve loved getting to know so many of you in our community, online and in numerous community events around the country! :grinning:

Anyway, the new feature we are launching today is very apt for my cakeday. I better not give the game away though, but I do have a nice green shirt to wear today :grinning: :wink:


This is so unfair. Will there ever be parity for Apple users! Not that I would ever use Apple Pay when the UK has contactless!

Happy anniversary Simon! It’s been awesome hearing from you at yawn o’clock in the morn!

Happy cakeday! You’re totally awesome and it’s been great seeing you around on the forums :smiley:

I guess that makes a change from a Prince shirt :wink:

Oooh do I take that as a hint that were going to have a choice of colour with the cards? Hot Coral or Snotty glow in the dark Green? Interesting :innocent::sunglasses:

Happy cake day Simon :raised_hands::cake:

Clearly, this is a hint that Monzo has a new mascot. Bye, Hot Chip :wave:

Green for Android AND for Granny Smith Apples :wink:

Happy cake day buddy, hope you brought some cakes to the office this morning :cake:

If we do a green mockup that should totally be the name :wink:

Not fluorescent enough! :joy:

(Herp Derp) #17

This hurts my eyes :joy_cat:

(Simon B) #18

Now that’s more like it. I’d use that :joy:

(Adam Williams) #19

I like it, though it does clash with the MasterCard logo a little. Reminds me of mint

(Jill Hayes) #20

Yep, I’d go for that, if I couldn’t have hot coral
