Hello there friends and everyone in cheat happens. Its come to my attention that i'm just pointing out and informed from my friends that this website sucks. (this is according to my friends, not me.) You people are amazing with taking time with cheats; But honestly, where do we start at, people complain because of you since cheats are for fun, not money dang grabbing! It makes no sense, its outrage! Plus, you guys even (supposedly) say that you cancel cheat requests sometimes. Many people are outraged, and you NEED to find a solution for this. Here is some another-forum users opinion, including someone surprised:
I honestly ****ing hate CheatHappens. They force us to BUY trainers! This is unbelievable. I hope those mother****ers change there minds, or even better: Call vermillion over here to DDos the whole website!
My friends are in conclusion, telling you to stop selling trainers, and get people to download them for FREE! Sure there's some trainers, but there not really exciting... I hope you understand guys.
Those three products you also had to pay money to get. Don't know how to use either one of them? Back in the day you had to additionally buy a small book that showed you what to enter in them to get the desired effect.
The cheats that your friends refer to they probably know as the game developer put in codes. Lets take the famous Konami code. This code was developed by....Konami. The same developer that produced whatever game you bought back in the day (say Contra). Since you paid them the money for the game, they include the special perk themselves and consider buying the game as payment. Game developers don't have to put in cheat codes for their games and many games without any kind of built-in cheats do exist.
Although they can still use the CoSMOS item absolutely free of charge if they wish. You don't even have to sign up for an account to use it.

Then theirs server fees those also require money which can't appear out of thin air and then theres video games, they aren't free and if trainers became free here not only would the programmers have to do it in their free time which would be a 95% time cut in coding time so a lot less trainers but the video games could not be bought since there is no money to buy them, which would then cut down on the trainer count again so in the end there would be NO trainers at all and then no cheat happens.
And yeah you may say antifun does it for free, but he takes donations and the games he makes trainers for are limited and not kept up to date with patches all too much, why? because he lacks the time and funds donations are based on peoples good will on paying him but as you said your friends want FREE cheats right so they obviously wouldn't be the ones donating and there'd be plenty others who also would want for free so in conclusion we can pretty much say there'd hardly be any donators and hardly in any steady amount or meaningful amount.
I don't know where he is from but chances are he gotta pay 60Ã¢â€šÂ¬ for the most popular games that people want cheats for and if he's just making trainers but not getting anything for it how can it be fun for him? he's just throwing money out the window just getting poorer and poorer.
There are a lot of ways to look at things and if people took the time to actually think and understand the very basics of the world you'd see nothing is free, and what is free won't last long and be lackluster in quality.

If that were the case, you would see a major decrease in content made available. Software development is mostly a thankless job. Clients often only say stuff when it isn't working and often in a rash tone (many examples here but even trainer makers that do as you described experience it as well even though they provide it free of charge).
I work as a developer (although not for this site) and let me tell you the not so glamorous details of it. It can suck major amounts of ass when I have to sacrifice the work/life balance to meet a deadline due to demands. That happens a lot. I wear myself down a lot by working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week to accomplish whatever it is that needs to be done. That's 84 total hours per week. enough to wake up, shower, work, eat, and sleep. Nothing else. No video games, no TV, no friends, no family. That can go for weeks forcing yourself to be a hikikomori so you can work even though you don't want to. You know how much the client cares about that? None, zero, nana. They don't give the slightest damn about your condition. They just care about the end product and if I miss one minor detail? I get grilled. No thanks, no encouragement, no nothing. Just a "here's why you suck" speech thrown at me. But it's okay because I get paid for it right?
Developers are salaried people. Most situations they are free to walk away without any explanation. Hell in cases where they provide the work for free, it can be seen as justified. They are a critical resource if you want stuff like this but can't be bothered to do the work yourself. Burnout is a real thing even in a voluntary position and contributing to it does not serve well for users.
SDLC life is not for everyone. Extremely few are willing to do it for free on top of all that. Please be careful with what you ask for as it is an unreasonable request for many.
