Frequently Asked Questions

What is a challenge?

It is our goal to increase the exchange of knowledge among engineers of our portal PARTcommunity. As a benefit for our active community members we have created several challenges together with the support of numerous component manufacturers, which are awarded with interesting prizes.

How does it work?

Follow the description and tasks of the respective engineering challenge. Post your contribution together with a photo or screenshot to the defined section within the PARTcommunity portal. After the process is finished an independent jury will figure out the winner and notify him.

What is a PINBOARD?

A PINBOARD is a collection of pictures from different visited websites about a selected topic of your choice.
Of course you can create several PINBOARDS and thus increase your chances of winning!

You can find examples here: http://b2b.partcommunity.com/community/pins/board/browse

What do you have to do?

Just create your own PINBOARD in the PARTcommunity in a few seconds and start to pin! This is how it works:

  • Login in as usual in the PARTcommunity at www.partcommunity.com
  • Create the board where your pins should be saved: http://b2b.partcommunity.com/community/pins/board/create
  • Under the menu item ”PINS“ you will find the link to the PIN IT button for your web browser

  • Just drag the blue ”PIN IT“ into the favorites bar of your browser.

  • Now go to an interesting website of your choice and push the ”PIN IT“ button in your browser.

  • Select the picture you targeted on the page

  • If you have not created a board yet, click „NEW BOARD“, assign a name and save. Otherwise you can select your already created board here.

  • Now create a title and description and click PIN IT
  • Repeat this procedure as often as desired with PIN IT in your favorites bar

You can create your own pinboard from any desired website!
Of course you can create several pinboards with different topics.

You decide the topic – it should be funny, interesting, curious, comprehensive and technical!
