Thanking real life volunteers

It is almost the end of the year, and that is for me personally usually a moment to thank some of the people I have worked with over the past twelve months. That triggered me to try and figure out what methods are currently being used in the Wikimedia universe to thank the real life volunteers. Therefore I have set up this questionnaire. I have tried to make it simple&quick to answer, but at the same time to leave plenty of opportunity to leave suggestions. It should take you roughly 5 minutes to answer it all.

I am targeting both individuals and organizations with this. If you want to seperate the two, just fill it out twice. Please focus on what *has been done* so far, not what you're planning to do.

I want to be able to make the replies available publicly. For individuals without names etc of course, for organizations I would like to be able to add the name of the organization unless there is an objection. For the rest it is of course totally informal and it is for sharing practices.

I'm trying to figure out:
* How important you think thanking is
* What are the best practices and the coolest ideas
* Whether physical or online methods are used primarily

Please spread the link!

Thank you for your help!
