Here at Tom's Hardware, much of our strength comes from experts like you. With a community of millions, there's no better resource out there for tech support, because chances are, one of our users has had the same problem and knows how to fix it. With more and more folks taking the plunge and upgrading to Windows 8, we thought it would be nice (and well-timed) to promote a little community contest in the Windows 8 section of the forum.
From now until March 8th, post a new Tutorial or How-To in Windows 8 on our forum, and if yours is one of the Top 5 most popularly read posts with “How-To:” in the title by that date, you win a Tom's Goodie Bag! What's in Tom's Goodie Bag, you ask?
- Tom's Hardware Hammer (with hidden surprise uses!)
- Tom's Guide Flashlight
- Computing.net 8gb USB Flash Drive
- Tom's Games Light-Up Yo-Yo
- Bestofmedia Squishy Stress Ball
Your How-To can be about anything relating to Windows 8 that you think your fellow Tom's users might find useful. Boot problems, customization, installation, icon placement, you name it - so long as it's accurate and helpful. To make sure your submission counts, be sure to include "How-To:” in the title of your post. The Top 5 Winners will be contacted via private message by yours truly for details on where we can ship your pile of awesome off to.
Good luck, and see you on the forums!
