|Not that you should necessarily expect someone to fulfill it, but make requests for something you're looking for or would like to see posted here.
Before making a request, check the posting database at http://animeusenet.org. Failing to do so is probably going to earn you some negative karma, and since you're asking for a favor, you don't want to start out with that.
Also, try to imagine how you would react to the kind of request you are making, and keep in mind that requests from people who appear to be making an effort to be apart of the community (here, and in the newsgroups proper), and not just strictly leeching, will be looked upon more favorably.
For example, a request for all 112 episodes of One Piece in SVCD by a "Guest" user is probably going be ignored summarily.
Likewise, creating an account just so you can request all episodes of Initial D First and Second stages probably isn't going to get you far.
In contrast, someone who's been hanging out a while (here and in the newsgroups), maybe doing some posts here and there or helping with fills, taking part in discussions, and otherwise being part of the community is going to get their request for Fruits Basket #25, which was discovered to have burned corrupted when they went to watch it, probably filled.
In short, making small requests of friends is going to be more succesful than demanding HUGE favors from strangers.
