As the mod who denied your post, I was just following the guidelines. The reason this rule exists is to discourage people from requesting before contributing in some form.

That rule was added to prevent the exact behavior you just proposed.

I am sure you've also checked our rules on requests and would understand why you can't just drop in, ask for something and then drop out just as quick. It's not how we operate.

Well these are our rules to prevent hit and run requests and fill up the forums with people just wanting freebies. If you want access then help out the community by contributing something to its archive.

I am sorry, but if you want something from the archive you have to contribute to it. It's only fair to everyone else here who has contributed and it helps our efforts. And if you really want something from us you will find something to contribute.

You won't find any free lunches here, I am sorry.
