Well I have two weeks off, I am sure I can spam... I mean make some informative and educational posts to get me to that number.Maybe it should be like the Marketplace and require 500 posts. Of course then the OP would not see it...
I do, but just ain't quick enough on the trigger!... and half of the codes must go to Demi's
just keep it as it; its a free gamble. Sometimes win, mostly loose, ...
Yup, be nice if something could be done.I agree with the OP, codes should only go to members who can access the Marketplace. Make it a benefit of being a contributing member of the site. Like the OP, I've seen Guest vultures swoop in and snag codes. They don't have the courtesy to post which codes are taken and they rarely, if ever, give helpful feedback to the dev.
I know it would add some burden on the mods but could be a kind of verification be possible and check that a developer is legitimate by just clicking his iTunes link ? Could be even automized ...Many developers have low post counts as they come here to promote their apps and do not interact outside of that promotion.
Couldn't their "Vendor" status allow them access? Or create a "Developer" status?Unless I'm misunderstanding the topic (and that's happened before). If we set a post count restriction, wouldn't we be blocking a lot of developers from providing the very codes that members are hankering for?

Yes it possible, but it seems like a lot of work for one sub-forum and only to restrict access to established members. I think we run the risk of seeing less promo codes if we establish more restrictive policy. Just my $.02Couldn't their "Vendor" status allow them access? Or create a "Developer" status?
The number of app offerings could decrease, but probably not. The quality of interaction and feedback between dev and member would almost certainly increase. That in turn should make it an incentive for an exclusive area. Win-win for both groups that matter.Yes it possible, but it seems like a lot of work for one sub-forum and only to restrict access to established members.

It's an honesty system...I agree if you take a code you should have the decency to post it as taken....Unfortunately, not everyone is inclined to do so. I can't really see the value of post count requirements either as they are likely to deter the vendors, who also tend to visit simply to promote their new app.Screwed again. A dev posts 6 promo codes an hour and 20 minutes ago. All are gone and only 2 reported taken by forum members. It's frickin ridiculous. This BS needs to stop. Could we please get one of the mods to give a ****?
... The rest were taken, without anyone posting that they did take them.UPDATE: (At least) another 5 codes have already been used by 5 ungrateful fellows: 4 from US, 1 from Singapore. Next time, I will think twice before offering more free promo codes.
