What has happened to cg in the last few years? We need to encourage more users to join cg! I have to admit i left the site for a few years because it got a little boring but since last time nobody is online!!!
Well, there are many reasons.

For one, there isn't anyone who maintains this site anymore (from my understanding). Very
few people would want to remain active on a site like this that pretty much needs some
form of management in order for the site to maintain its quality.
For example, the new cheats that I am receiving are HORRIBLE. People will see websites
like GameFAQS and will see how the cheats are more reliable there. Cheatsguru has some
terribly unreliable cheats, and it honestly contains a considerably smaller cheat database
than most other websites (also, there is a lot of plagiarized cheats on here that
contribute to the websites database).
The staff here consisted of mostly teens who knew probably didn't even know who zinya, the
original creator and admin of the site, even was. Zinya appointed me as moderator simply
because I was contributing a lot of cheats and walkthroughs a few years ago. It was
impossible to determine how reliable a moderator was, and one could easily abuse his or
her powers. Crappy cheats could have been approved; good forums, posts, and cheats could
have been easily deleted, and many other things could have happened.
The ultimate reason I went here was because of the PEOPLE who would log in daily. There
were some pretty entertaining discussions that would go on here, and the active users
would typically remain the same.
The site's ultimate downfall is the lack of users who always logged on, which was always
the problem. Those users have grown up, have gotten a life, and there is no one to replace
them. A lot more discussions would have been on this site, and the site may have been
still "alive" today.
I find it unfortunate how this site ended up being dead. I had some good laughs here, but
Cheatsguru will probably remain like this forever. It has been outranked by other cheat
databases, and that fact will remain true for the rest of eternity.

I moderate all nintendo ds game sections on this website. Unfortunately, there really is
not any anyone who manages this site anymore. It seems like the administrators have
abandoned this website (zinya moved on to something else). Those admins would be the only
people who could appoint anyone a moderator.
