Do Not Beg/Ask for Promo Codes

Begging / asking for promo codes to developers unsolicited will result in permanent bans.

This includes private messaging developers asking for promo codes unless it was offered by the developers.

If developers are getting these PMs, please report it to me.

I agree. There are all these new members joining and ruining the forums. Thank you for stepping in and putting a stop to this. It's crazy that a dev post a video of their game and the first 20 responses are from junior members hoping to score a free game. Let me ask you this. Is it possible for you to create a senior member forum for people who have been here for over a month and have over 200 posts? I as well as many other members would love that, it would be a place for all of us experienced members to talk about whatever.

I think having limited access when you are brand new may not be a bad idea.. However, 200 posts (or really any post count) is unnecessary IMO. I have been a member of the site for a while now, and I don't post nearly as often as I just search around. I think that would be unfair to those like me who are active, just not posting in every thread. I believe having to be a member for a certain time period would be more effective (not sure how all that works). This way we know the members are here for the long term. Otherwise you will get people posting a lot more spam to get to that higher post count... Quality posts, not quantity

The speed of light is faster than the speed of sound. That is why some people may appear bright, until you hear them speak.

Nice one Arn. Sometimes I think these promo codes were a bad idea. But then again, that probably just because I can't use 'em, being in the UK and all

Well done!

We don't want to annoy too much the developers.
