Promo Code Giveaways Forum

We've created a new forum specifically for developers to giveaway promo codes.

I resisted this for a while since I thought promo codes were a good way for developers to generate interest and feedback in their app threads, but as we've had more and more threads created just for the giveaway of promo codes, it made sense to split it out. The game release forum is busy enough without these threads, so I decided to move them out to their own.

Also, the promo code giveaways are rather boring threads to read after the giveaway is complete and tends to clutter up the release threads with a lot of noise.

Oh Crap. Now it`s even more easier for lurkers to grab the codes. Promo codes now show up gloriously on the front page with big bold title Promo Code Giveaway

we'll see, the alternative is moving it into the Game Discussion forum, but that's already a bit crowded.

Ahem... I was just kidding over there. No real need to move promo codes to GD forum. The forums look really organized now. Thanx for that again.

Yup. Super organized

About lurkers, ultimately it's up to the devs if they want to make sure that lurker can't get codes so easily. Having a competition or making people write reviews for the lite is just two of many ways.

Is it possible to make the section a "members only" area?

It should be possible. MR already has the Promo Code sub forum viewable to members only.
