I wouldn't even need cookies to help support the site, right now I would have to say the biggest issue is laziness/motivation to write them (not influenced by prizes, but rather time constraints/stress).
But I will continue trying.
IMO that game isn't too high on the adult scale
It's not on GamersHell adult game screenshot section. But if you feel like it's over the top take out the screenie if you wish or tone it down whichever way.
I feel similar on the reviews section, and why there aren't more of them, especially from the guests. Not too sound harsh but statistically speaking theres 200+ of them coming here daily and only 15 or so of us regulars.
At least right now they have the bigger power to influence how the reviews or comments section was to grow, but somehow it's just not working out.
IMO the site needs a section where guests would be able to see and be reminded on their visits to CTEN that there is good 'opportunity' to help out with reviews or comments. I know that rewarding people with hardware and other goodies is usually out of the question concerning finances but it doesn't even have to be about that. A page that would remind users that posting reviews/comments could get you cookies that would eventually pay off or even better remind them that posting reviews could very well help them launch themselves into magazines as freelance writers or the like (sorta like keeping a small portfolio), or even for the bigger sites like GameSpot.
Something that would stick to their head and remind them of these things, maybe right now the exposure is small so they are not seeing what CTEN has to offer?
And quite frankly if someone WAS to dedicate themselves to say writing 100 or so reviews for us there would be a good chance they could get a position at other places or whatever (I've seen plenty of sites that look for writers often and those sites that are better off give away hardware in exchange for the support). And it's always better to say, 'Yeah sure I'm interested in writing for ya. Here are the sites I wrote stuff for before, as you can see it's quite the list', rather than 'Sure I'll write for ya but this is the first time I did any editorial work online'.
Out of all these people that visit CTEN, there hasn't been ONE that would fit into this criteria? Strange.
