Commenter of the Month Competition


From now on we will be having a commenter of the month competition here at Darknet to encourage quality comments and discussion.

We hope to get more interactive here and we will be giving out prizes sponsored by GFI such as PSP’s iPods and other cool stuff bundled with goodies from GFI such as mugs, key-chains and t-shirts.

So make sure you comment!

Comments will be judged on frequency and quality so get involved, start some discussions on interesting articles and take some time to download and test the tools we mention and let us know if they are useful to you.

It will also let us tailor the blog better for you, our readers and give you more of the things you are interested in.

We have almost 10,000 RSS readers now and 4000 unique visitors a day, so I know you are out there, it’s time to build some interactivity.

So if you are interesting in a new PSP or iPod kindly sponsored by GFI – Start commenting!

    you guys don’t post often enough; the quality of your posts are not good enough to post anything about since most are already well known URL’s that you can find on del.icio.us, reddit, or digg. at least most of the time this may hold to be true, and that may change what with this contest.

    i thought i was the only person who commented on here is any consistent way. it will be good to see if others rise to the occasion.

    Hmm ok, then what about solving both problems. Here’s an idea, how about reader submitted content, then the best article from each month get’s the prize? That would give us more ‘good enough’ posts so we can update more frequently.

    Would anyone be interested in submitting stuff?

    how does one submit?

    this turned up nothing:

    do you have to be in the UK to submit/win?

    We will arrange the submission mechanism if people are interested to submit articles/tutorials/reviews.

    dre i disagree, this is my favorite blog to read and although i dont comment much, a psp or ipod is a pretty hefty reason to do so donchaknow?

    I agree with Daniel. I come to Darknet almost everyday to get my news. I think the content quality is very high after looking around. I learned about this site from Pauldotcom and have stuck to it ever since. I dont dare to comment becuase I am pretty much a noob to ethical hacking.

    Later,

    Hi,
    Generally, a good idea. I think Darknet could be a valuable resource. Currently, as I’ve commented before, the ‘news’ isn’t so ‘new’. I understand the pressures of time, etc. so maybe external submission of articles could be a way forward.

    If you are going for submissions, I’d be interested to see some kind of framework (or a defined lack of framework) to set the boundaries of discussion – too many blogs/ BBs are full of repeated, irrelevant twaddle as to make them almost unreadable.

    Of course, given that time is contrained, do YOU have the time to proofread/ edit submissions?

    I’ll watch this with interest!

    Bogwitch.

    this turned up nothing:

    do you have to be in the UK to submit/win? “

    no you dont’ im in japan and i submit just fine.

    Ok well that’s great, at least there’s a couple of you interested in commenting.

    That’s enough for me, only needs 1 to win the prize.

    It’s up to the rest of you if you want to compete or not.

    Perhaps we’ll leave the submissions idea for later, we’ll see if we can get this comments thing going first. Submissions as Bogwitch mentions have to be vetted so that might lead to problems with time constraints.

    Don’t worry if you think you’re a noob, just chip in your 2 cents/pesos/euros/pennies/etc.

    Download the tools and try them out.

    Comment competition will start today, the new section on the right will keep track of monthly stats and who’s ahead.

    Irrelevant comments will be deleted.
