Everybody gets a little emotional at one point or another in their life, and here at Cool Material we’re no different. We like you guys, but we don’t know anything about you outside of the fact that you like being in the know about gear, tech, and style. Quite frankly, this whole “friends with benefits” thing we have going on is beginning to feel a little one-sided and we want a real relationship (without the labels).
We decided to take matters into our own hands and created a new profile system that will allow you to carve out your own little niche in the world of Cool Material. Once you create a profile, you can upload an avatar (Sorry James Cameron, 150×150 pixels only) and a bio (like eHarmony without all the ridiculous questions – and we won’t share your information) then start making the place your own.
There’s a lot of cool material around here, and sometimes it gets a little tedious to keep track of everything you’re going to buy on payday. Now you can add items to your favorites by clicking the red thumbs up in the post and then revisit them later – or you can email it, tweet it, or post to Facebook so someone else gets the hint. What kind of party would it be if your friends didn’t come over every once in a while, so your avatar and a link to your profile shows up whenever you comment on a post. Now you can put faces to names.
THE GIVEAWAY – Contest Closed. Congrats Michael! (carbonware)
Unfortunately, we haven’t found a way to send beer through the Internet (or the mail) yet, so we’re going to give away a TSOVET CS130110 watch ($395) to kick off the party. This brushed 316L stainless steel behemoth comes with R-5123 movement comes in classic, monochromatic, conveniently identical to Cool Material black and white and could be yours just for creating a profile.
1. Register and create a profile
