Re: Help Promote EH-Net

Its good to see your still around Don!! just stopping in and saying hello.. been a few years since i been here.. alot changed looks good.. lots of traffic keep up the great work!

don wrote:Now that we have seen traffic grow, it's time to start getting the word out there about all of the great work that you guys do and pull more out of the woodworks. There are several ways to help our community grow. Here are just a few:

1. Vote for us using the links at the bottom of the right column. Progenic gives us the most clicks in return, but voting for all three helps. Just like it is here in Chicago - vote often.  ;)
2. Review this site on Alexa.
3. Link to us from your site or other places / forums you visit. More links = higher placement on search engines.
4. If you were going to buy any products or attend any security training, use our affiliate links or simply tell them we sent you. It helps them continue to sponsor the Free Monthly Giveaways... and we all love those don't we?

For you lurkers out there...
I know the info on this site has helped you. Why not become a member? Ask anyone, we don't inundate you with spam. In fact, it's rare that we send email blasts more than once every other month if that much. And we don't sell our email list.

For those members who have not posted...
What are you waiting for? There are $1000s in prizes just waiting to be taken! Introduce yourself, tell us how you found the site, what you think of it, thoughts on new things you'd like to see. Hell... tell us we suck! You took the time to register, at least post once. We should always strive to have more topics (not posts) than members.

Thanks in advance for any and all efforts,
Don

Re: Help Promote EH-Net

Even just mentioning the site in casual conversation with someone with similar interests can be helpful.  I almost always mention this site to network admins when I am doing a pentest as a place to ask questions and further their knowledge.

Re: Help Promote EH-Net

Love the idea of a shirt. T-shirt, not sure. In keeping with the more professional 'tude of the site and its members, maybe we should go with something like a polo or button down with EH-Net embroidered on it. I have 3 of them made for myself, and those at the last ChicagoCon saw them. Then again, we could do both. How about t-shirts with more professional sayings like:

I hack for a living. You can, too!

What do you think?

Re: Help Promote EH-Net

That's a great idea! I'm always on the net looking for cool hacker/security threads. Polo or button shirts for work and tees for hittin the streets.

Here's one:

I hack therefore I am.

Re: Help Promote EH-Net

That's a good idea Don.  Never dismiss the power of a slogan on a shirt. If you do then read up about how much money those guys made from TAP OUT shirts. Its actually obscene! Its kind of a weird world we live in. We spend countless hours perfecting our hacking skills and 3 average guys come along and put a simple slogan on a shirt playing off the UFC and make more money than just about anyone I know in security, LOL!

I'd definitely go for both.

To counter the usual comments I get when I tell people what I do how about, 'not all hacking is illegal'? Not sure if that's good, but something with the same message could be useful.

Maybe something like "hacking is not (always) a crime"

Re: Help Promote EH-Net

That could work, I tried toying with the 'hacking is not a crime' but couldn't get past the fact it is.

I sense a new poll brewing for this one....Don?

Re: Help Promote EH-Net

As I've always said, let's call a spade a spade. Hacking is not a crime. Those that use it for illicit purposes should be called by the correct name... criminals.

No need for a poll.  ;)

Re: Help Promote EH-Net

Hey all,

I'm at uni with a group of around 70 people on this sort of course (combination of Digital Forensics and Ethical Hacking.) I can let everyone here know about the site and the forum if you like?? If not that's fine too :) Ill wait on any conformation I need before I say anything.
