In case you've been living under a rock, some awesome things have been going down at CN since its restoration. The staff have not been as active as we would like because its the week before finals, and we've all been slammed. BUT, I wanted to take this opportunity to give a little sneak peek into the CN Contributor's Section. You can read the announcement thread here.
The CN Contributor's Section was opened exactly 1 month ago on request. There are some things that just can't be posted publicly or they will get completely raped. There are also some techniques that people just don't want to post publicly. I didn't want to miss an opportunity to miss out on some great quality content for CN, so I opened up a new hidden section. All members who have access to this section were manually given permission based on their contributions to the public forums, or their willingness to contribute something to the private forums. We also opened the Contributor's Section with the goal of encouraging members to actively contribute in order to gain entry into the hidden section. And, several of you have!
So, here's a little sneak peak at what a small group of members have posted in the Contributor's Section in just 1 month.
Just check out the Received in the Mail Today Forum and you'll see several incredible deals that some of us have received. For instance:
- 30 TopCases for MacBook Pro for $5
- Ultra Slim Portable Backup Battery
- 198 K-Cups for just $7
- $1000 Visa Gift card!
- $1000 Visa GC
- 15 phone cases for $5
These three threads don't even put the number of great deals into perspective! The other day there were over 25 new items posted at 75% off. The next day I almost ordered 100 Rubix cubes at 90% off before realizing I didn't want to have to unload all of those somewhere.
There is an guaranteed method to get a $1000 Visa Gift Card.
There is a HUGE St*rbucks ******* Discount MEGA THREAD. I'm talking MEGA.
And 3U8 has also published Part 1 of a wisdom series -- A grab-bag of tips and tricks he's learned over the last 5 years.
Want to join the fun!?!?
Just get active! (And by active, I don't mean constantly logged in, I mean posting)
tl;dr -- Seriously? Its not even that long... The Contributor's Section is awesome, and its barely even begun! Imagine how great it can be when we all start sharing our knowledge.
I've been doing a TERRIBLE job at updating this thread with some examples of great things that have been going down in the Contributor's section... For physical things, just check the Received in the Mail section haha, most of the stuff people are publicly sharing are in there. Here are a few:
