I've been there and done that Crunch. I used to go through the requests and answer which ever ones I could. You keep going and the requests never stop. I would get users starting threads wanting pics, and as for PM's, I'd get heaps as well from users wanting pics. The request thread was put in place so it didn't cluster the main pages with people wanting pics. A request is just that, a request. Just because someone wants it, doesn't mean they are going to get it. Most of the guests look through the WOW forums the most. And most of the replies are by newbies, as you call them. If people join the forum just to view the pics, then so be it. It is a wrestling forum after all.
For the record, Captain Crunch, you do a great job at keeping the WOW forums active with your pics. Don't stop just because you feel you are the only one posting. Your posts attract members and posts. You should feel happy knowing what you do is making a difference to the forums and attracting new members.
