    is there a way we can make this room viewable by only loging in i come into this part of the forums to try new apps and its annoying to try new apps when a dev gives out 20 codes and 4 posts say they took codes and the rest are all in use is there a way we can fix this? :confused:

    Great idea.

    I also think it would be great if there was seperate forums for devs who wanted to share their codes and people who want to share their "slayer" or "vampire" codes or whatever that huge section is at the top of the list.

    110% agree with you. Lurkers get the benefit of being a registered member without any review for the developer and we all get a bunch of used codes. And especially since most devs register to share their app, but dont have PM privelages. :rolleyes:

    Yes, like an app codes section and account codes section. I see so many * Wars that I tend to overlook a chance to review what could be useful apps.

    Are you guys talking of source code (the Mac Programming forum) or something else? If you are...

    ... Then I don't get it. If you don't want people to see your code, then don't post it. If you want to hide a forum from people who haven't logged in, it isn't like its hard for someone to just create a MacRumors account and log in and browse the forum anyway.

    i agree
    before i registered i used to mooch of all the codes it would be smart to make it private
    it would generate more site registered visitors 2 seeing as people want to get promo codes
