TinkerDroid is an Android community aimed at helping others in the community answer questions. A new user can register, ask a question and seek the support of the community to help find a resolution/answer.
TinkerDroid is completely user driven and supported. Answer questions for others and earn "karma points." You can use these points as a status symbol, to let others in the community know what you are trustworthy and can put more faith in your responses. Also, users with high numbers of karma points can be assigned various moderation tasks, another way to keep the community filled with the best information. It's a free service that you can login to via OpenID, Google, Yahoo, etc.
In a nutshell, you can win $100 just for asking and/or answering questions. The more times members of the community vote on your question or answer, the more chances you have of winning a $100 Amazon.com gift certificate.
Here are some examples of questions that you could ask:
"How do I change my ring-tone?"
"How can I make cheaper calls?"
"How do I root my phone?"
"Where can I get the best accessory for my phone?"
The contest begins October 18 (today) and runs through December 6. That is PLENTY of time for you all to get over to Tinkerdroid.com and earn some karma!
I've included the full press release below or you can read it here.
