Petition to require login to promo codes area

To avoid lurkers to get all codes without thanking devs or say which code they've taken.

Who is with me?

I think it makes sense.

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

I agree but how will you deal with the people who make accounts, log in, but don't post anything when they take a code?

Always better than now. Always better than let anyone who doesn't even have an account to grab a code without thanking devs.

This seriously has to stop: for sakes of the forum itself and expecially for the devs.

Yeah, I see what you mean. Honestly, I can't believe how some people can be so ungrateful. Is it really that hard to take a few minutes out of your day to type a quick 'thank you'?

Exactly.

This solution is better for everyone.

And if you want more: admins can make a rule with a minimum of posts by single user to access the area. But maybe this is too much.

I would be happy at least with login requirement.

At least.

I'm totally with this. Not perfect, but a heck of a lot better than what goes on right now.

I'd add minimum amount of posts to at least show you're active here, otherwise people will tell friends who will sign up and just grab codes or have been a member for a certain period of time

Just sound like sour grapes to me.

So what if you make it harder for people to get promo codes, there will people who still will get them and not say even thanks and/or write a review.

Remember the developer is giving them out generously and for free (money out of his/her) pocket.

And if you really want the app, why not pay for it and return the favor to the developer.
