PM promo codes

i think it should be a rule to PM promo codes to the first "X" number of posts. that way lurkers don't use them up. of course this only applies to those willing to give out promo codes.

This has been discussed before but in the end it's the developers choice what they do with their promo codes, not Touch Arcade's. I usually don't go after promo codes but I've found it's mostly the angry members that get mad because they didn't get a promo code that push for this so much.

Not meaning to be a backseat moderator or anything but I think devs should do what they want with their codes.

Agreed. Devs have been kind enough to share codes here on TA, that's more than good enough in my book!

Oh! I just got an idea. Maybe if you could some how delay posts to all people not signed for about five minutes members would get the codes instead of the lousy lurkers. just a thought.

Once again, good suggestion, but the use of the codes is all up to the devs.

What i mean is that if the site was programmed that way, so that you have to sign in to view it live.

If the dev really didn't want a lurker to get it, they simply wouldn't post it in a thread.
I'm sure most if not all devs realize that there will be lurkers when they just put the codes up as a "free for all"...

I'm sure the administrators would love to lose impressions because people can't view the forums without registering just so a handful of members can get a $0.99 game for free.

Just face it. Even without lurkers, your chances of being in the right place at the right time aren't going to increase all that much, and then everyone would just find some other way to say, "But I want the promo codes. Me, me, me!"
