Competition time again!
As you know we started the Darknet Commenter of the Month Competition on June 1st 2007 and it’s been running since then! We have just finished the twelfth month of the competition in May and are now in the thirteenth, starting a few days ago on June 1st – Sponsored by GFI.
We’ve successfully been holding this contest for a year now!
We are offering some pretty cool prizes like iPods and PSPs (or similar), along with cool GFI merchandise like shirts, keyrings and mugs.
And now the winner will also get a copy of the Ethical Hacker Kit.
Keep up the great comments and high quality interaction, we really enjoy reading your discussions and feedback.
Just to remind you of the added perks, by being one of the top 5 commenter’s you also have your name and chosen link displayed on the sidebar of every page of Darknet, with a high PR5 (close to 6) on most pages (5000+ spidered by Google).
So announcing the winner for May…it’s Bogwitch! He’s been one of our best long terms commenter’s and has been with us since before the contest in the early days of Darknet.
I’m glad he won as his comments have been consistently of high quality and often entertaining too.
Comments for June have been quite low so far, so it might be an easy win for someone again this month :) I didn’t manage to grab the site on the day before the month turned…so I just spend a while coming up with an SQL query to grab the counts from the database for the month of May.
Jinesh Doshi was pretty close behind in second place. There were some good discussions in May and I hope to see them continue in June! I’d like to thank you all for your participation! I hope it keeps getting better as 2008 develops with more interesting news and tools. Keep up the excellent discussions, it’s very interesting reading especially on some of the more controversial topics.
Thanks to everyone else who commented and thanks for your links and mentions around the blogosphere!
Feel free to share Darknet with everyone you know :)
Keep commenting guys, and stand to win a prize for the month of June!
