If someone is after something I don't think it hurts to ask, so long as they only ask once and not every ten mins for the same thing

That's the problem though the people asking do ask for give-aways quite frequently.

Not only that but if they keep asking and keep getting stuff it's going to encourage more people to start asking.

We do get serial scroungers on here and yes RedIron, its annoying, maybe a dedicated thread with waiting list for 48hr xbox codes, HMV codes etc. etc. . . . . .

That would be a good idea as that way anyone giving something away could have a quick look through the thread to make sure they're not giving it to someone who keeps asking for things.

You're right if you don't ask you don't get, in which case why are charity threads not allowed.

There have been plenty of people who have asked for donations on their just giving page (where the money goes direct to the charity) only to have their thread deleted as it's soliciting. Surely what you're doing is worse?

You have contributed to the site with deals etc. Hence you deserve something back - however the people I refer to are the 1 - 100 post members who only log on to lurk and post wanting free stuff.

360 48hr codes
Orange Wednesday
HMV codes

Etc. could have dedicated threads with waiting lists and if someone has one to donate, they can use the appropriate medium to go to :)

I forgot about that one, that must be the most frequent of the lot. At dedicated thread for Orange Wednesdays at least would be a good idea imo.

Can we have 6 points again next year? :w00t:


You probably can Guv, but as long as we can stop you qualifying for the Champions League on the last day again :p

Surely it's the same as begging? If you want something for free, go stand out in the street and ask!

A really good idea. I seem to remember there was a dedicated thread for beta codes for COD5 and that seemed to work well.
