That'd be waay better. Agreeing on this whole thread.
I really think that's an awesome idea. I really, really hate lurkers. Nothing more annoying that going to get that code for a really awesome game, but you go there and the first reply is "Crap, all gone".
I like how some devs have you PM them or post there before they send you the code, or the contests that many devs have. But I particularly like this idea of having the section blocked off to lurkers.
Oh yeah, one other thing I've seen on other sites. Sometimes they'll have it so you have to "thank" the poster, or click a button on the post to make sure that you actually are a member. This way, lurkers can see the post and game info, but won't have access to the codes without joining. It may not completely eliminate the problem, but it would definetly help cut down on it.
