    Okay but how many of them need to be tolerated for that ratio to be worth it? If it is annoying the members and are not getting their results and why would we be in such a forum. Shouldn't they be advising them to participate in groups before just randomly asking for favours. I do not find it any different than advertising PMs or comments on threads that we get sometimes that do not make any sense at all. Shouldn't there be some rules about things like that when you sign-up. I wouldn't even ask for myself. Entering a contest is different than asking for votes for your entry for a contest.

    I don't see it much different than the people who sign up and expect free coupons because they are newbies or all the other people some people find annoying. Personally I find the games room annoying, I view a lot on tapatalk and those posts are bumped with replies a lot that it makes seeing new threads difficult for me, but others like them so they are here. The fact is we have a vote request forum, people will use it. Some of our contesters see trading as a waste of time - they are a part of the forum and welcome to their opinion but if we got rid of everything people find annoying, there wouldn't be anything in the forum.

    If you don't like someone's posts, just skip them. If someone is asking in areas where they should not, report them and they will be moved and contacted. Personally I do not vote for people who have just signed up for SC, but its easy to tell by their join date and post count whether I want to or not

    I think there are more lurkers than actual members, they obviously learn from the site. It would be nice if everyone joined but its great they learn too and many lurkers do join and participate.. I learned for about 2 months before I joined.. I didn't really have anything to say before that.
