We all know that a lot of rom requests happen here and there and we've also discussed possible ways to solve them. Perhaps I found out why those mesures don't work. Entering the main page (with login, newest roms and the latest new roms) you have there thos topics like "NEW: Rom XXX bla bla bla". If those n00bs arrive at that page they just see this and a lot of screenies from roms and the new rom release list. I don't wonder they run into the forum to post a request for the rom XYZ they just have seen there. You should perhaps place right next to each rom news entry displayed on the first page a Red-Letter-Alert like 'No Download or Requests for this Rom here!". I guess this might really help.
