Notes

In some threads, the original poster has used the first post for a directory of codes for members who have posted there.

The list of threads above is maintained by the MacRumors moderators. To participate in the exchange, click the thread for each game or game system you use.

Post in this thread only to discuss how we can help forum members find and use game code exchange threads, or to identify new threads of this type. Do not post game codes in this thread; such posts will be removed without notification. You can also send me a Private Message about new threads we might add to the list.

Suggestion

The game code exchange threads depend on the cooperation of the members involved.

We suggest that you post at most once in each game code exchange thread, so that others can use the thread for reference. If your information changes, edit your post rather than make another post in the same thread.Note: This suggestion is merely a guideline, not a MacRumors rule, so do not report posts that don't follow the suggestion. The MacRumors moderators do not manage the use of these threads other than to enforce the forum rules that apply to all threads.

wouldn't it be easier to consolidate those three threads into this one? that way you don't need to search all three. and this is a stickied topic (i assume) which would allow everyone to see it right away, rather then need to be diverted to those threads.

I agree, one big sticky list would be easier than haivng 3 seperate lists with either redundant or different information.

If we were starting from scratch, there could be one thread for all game platforms, but the current threads already exist separately. The moderators and I didn't set out to manage or reorganize the code threads, just to help people find them.

Many gamers use multiple platforms, which might favor a combined approach, but having separate threads lets people find others on a specific platform more efficiently and avoids having posts for a less-used platform buried among posts for a more-used platform. So it's a tradeoff.

Perhaps some members would prefer that the "Macrumors Members XBL Tag/PSN/DS/Wii #/etc!" thread be divided into multiple threads, while others would rather see all of the ones above combined. In either case, our starting point is with the threads we have now.

If there is a strong consensus that we should start over with a single thread, or somehow combine the existing threads, or try to create a master directory of member codes, let's hear your ideas. Anyone is welcome to make suggestions or volunteer to organize things differently.

Exactly, if the Wii Codes thread gets bumped, I take a look at it. A thread with a combination of everything would get too messy too quickly. I don't want to have to sift through a ton of XBox Live tags. This thread works well to bring them all together, whilst keeping them separate.

Shouldn't the Call of Duty 4 PS3 ID thread be added here?
