Seperate Promo forum?

Now I have only been posting for a few days, but I have been roaming around for months and I have noticed something.

Promo code threads get instantly huge and are very often at the top of the thread list long after the codes have been given away.

I have a suggestion that could fix a couple things.
There be a seperate section where promo codes and promo beggars can go.
That way those threads can stop spamming regular sections and promo beggars can have free reign to beg on that section alone and absolutely no begging elsewhere on the site.

Just wanted your guys' input on the situation.

Just upgraded to the 3GS from the original. Super excited to play some of the more intense games.

Oh... Sorry for reposting I guess.... Except looks like pretty much everyone agrees but nothing has happened?

Ok never mind then geez.... They do it anyways so I just figured give them a spot to do it so nevermind. I don't really appreciate someone changing my words. Go ahead and close this mod. Aparently I hit a nerve with this forum.
