We're working on a refresh of the site and are trying to determine if there are any sections that we should consider adding to the site to improve the experience for our readers.

Would love to see more trainers if possible, and professionally written guides.
At the moment most of my time not related to cheats is on Roosterteeth/AchievementHunters for community walkthroughs or help with the occasional visit to IGN and would love to see it here.

I personally voted for none of the above. One of my favorite parts of Cheat Happens is that it's always been what it is. We haven't become a full-fledged game news site or a full-fledged user contributed tips site. We're Cheat Happens. I know that eight years ago, there was hardly a trainer on the website, and that has been the biggest change in our philosophy. Despite the focus on providing our mind blowing trainers, we are not Trainers Happen. I like the site as it is. I've personally used this site for just about every option it provides. I've downloaded trainers and wallpapers, read game reviews and console cheats, and obviously use the forum on a regular basis. I would understand if the focus on wallpapers and console cheats was lessened or even dropped completely. I just don't want to add any unnecessary components for your small team to deal with. Collecting news/previews/trailers and/or adding code for a Q & A section seems like it'd create too much work for only a slight boost in monthly visitors. I feel like most people that want a gaming news source have one and aren't looking for a new one. Creating trainers for more games and sources means more money per game, as well as more sources and patches to have to deal with. I think that most competent customers realize how hard you all work on what you produce, and those who realize it appreciate it very much. As for professionally written game guides, I don't think anyone would complain, but I don't think it's a necessary expense to bring on another person to the team. And finally, for "more user contributed" tips etc, that's something that should be OUR responsibility. Whether people post their tips in the forum or submit them, it's our duty.

More Professional Videos for reviews for sure, it can also become a secondary revenue if hosted on Youtube.
And perhaps even Hardware reviews for upcoming/current hardware out there, from Graphic Cards to Controllers etc.

Personally like to see something that contributes to CHU's community to attract more active members in the forums.
I listen not to sympathy
Whilst ruler of this land
Withdraw your feeble aches and moans
Or suffer smite from this my hand.

A cool feature will be adding to the game/trainer page a field with the date when the game will be released (to various regions), so people stop making the "when is the trainer going to be released" messages and other stupid questions.
I never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception.
