*We're currently looking at changes to the site that would allow our editorial teams across the globe to cater promotions and content to specific regions. With this change, the door will be open for promotions of all kinds for all of our members.
While it's a less-than-perfect situation at the moment, I'm optimistic that these future changes will make promotional events more inclusive than ever before. We definitely understand your frustration and hope to improve the situation within the next few months.§
