I can guarantee shunning them will not keep them around period. This is a great opportunity for Zam to become even more well known and used for FFXIV. Don't ruin that based on selfish entitlement.
Well to be quite honest I think the point is that not every one cares if people who only showed up to get goodies stick around or not. This sub site has been here for over a year now and it's going to be here for a LONG LONG time to come. I probably don't speak for everyone, but I'd like for the people who stick around to be the people who like the game and want to contribute to the community, not just take from it. I'm sure that among the hundreds or thousands of new apps, there will be some great people who will stick around, but how many?
Not everyone who wants a beta key wants to "take" from the community. Lets be honest; EVERYONE wants a beta key, but that doesn't mean everyone wants to grab and bail.
lets say someone was searching for a way to get a beta key and managed to pull up this site. They then register and apply for the beta key. While applying they see a community for this game starting to develop and want to be a part of it, as well as read and contribute to the information already here.
You only have 9 posts, but that still gives you 8 more posts than most of the 1 post accounts will ever have here.
If someone was genuinely like "Hey, Zam, cool!" and is going to be posting here and using the site, then I welcome them.
If someone just came here for a key and to leave whether they get one or not... Well, I won't lose any sleep if they don't get one.
Whenever we get a new poster, I do genuinely hope they stick around. But realistically, we know that nearly all of the new accounts created on 8/4 will not post again. I'd just like to see the keys go to the people that support the site, whether they have 10 posts or 100 posts or 1000 posts or 10,000 posts. If you joined this site today (8/4) and are planning to stick around, then yeah, I wish you the best of luck at getting a key.
