SX Is Spreading Like Wildfire

September was a great month. We broke records in terms of visitors, posts, new memberships, shirt sales, amazon book sales and new inductees. The high council has finally pushed a new system that has had amazing results in terms of organization and member productivity. I would like to give a big thanks to all of our contributing crew and regular site members, without all of you this growth would not have been possible. Now that things are moving forward, let's keep things moving forward! We can always use more contributing crew members, so consider joining SX. We really appreciate our regular members as well, so keep coming back and keeping our forums strong like you have been. If you know of somebody that might be interested in SX, please refer them to the site.

Writers Needed For The Hacker Database (HDB)

We are in need of a few good people who like researching and writing about hacker history. The majority of our members are currently occupied with coding/hacking/reversing projects so we are hurting in terms of HDB updates. We have many links and information about hackers who are not currently listed, we just do not currently have the resources to sort through and post it all. If you would like to contribute to the HDB, please contact RaT asap.

Yesteryear

A few months ago, we asked if people would be interested in seeing the past flash work that was done for this site. Based upon this response, I have made them available as the start of a new Project that I am calling Yesteryear. (Located at http://www.soldierx.com/sxlabs/Project-Yesteryear) Based upon the response, there may be more additions to this project which will give some insight to the past of SoldierX.

New Neophyte's Guide Added To The Site

Kayin has taken the old Neophyte's Section (circa 2001) and rewritten it for 2009. You can view it by click here. If there's anything you'd like to see added, please feel free to leave a comment. This is part of a push to help people get started in our area of computers. Thanks to everybody who has been posting useful information to the forums and a special thanks to those supporters who have bought shirts from us last month. Our next big focus is to get a few solid projects released via SX Labs. We would also like to welcome Amp back from his trip to Bosnia.

Site Forums Upgraded For Flexibility

Our forums are now upgraded so that all of the replies in a thread stay at the left (flat) instead of being threaded (move to the right). This should make them much easier to read and make them more like standard forums. We have also configured the forums to allow you to set your own preferences for how you want to view them. If you want them to be the old way, simply go to the bottom of the page in any active topic and change the "comment viewing options". Hopefully this makes everybody's viewing experience a little better and helps with popular topics like the demonoid invite request topic. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can do to make this site easier for everybody to use.

*NOTE* http://www.soldierx.com/bbs/TEST is a great topic to use for testing your viewing options and choosing the one that you like the best.

Tutorial Contest 2009 - From 08/31/2009 until 01/01/2010

SOLDIERX proudly presents the official 2009 Tutorial Contest. Unlike last year, we are going to end this contest on new years rather than December 1st. This gives everybody an extra month to work on their tutorials. Rather than having a single winner this year, we will actually have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places with much better prices! The prizes are as follows:

1st Place - Free ticket to Defcon 18 or Hacked SB5100 Modem with double memory (development modem from Defcon 16 speech)*, Party with SX crew (at DC18)**, and a SOLDIERX T-Shirt.

2nd Place - Party with SX crew (at DC18)** and a SOLDIERX T-Shirt

3rd Place - SOLDIERX T-Shirt

Tutorials can be anything computer related but preferably should have something to do with hacking, cracking, security, privacy, etc.
