So, I came by to say hello and remembered there's next to no one to say hello too. This disheartens me as I miss when Super Cheats was active. I know a lot of things have been tried but perhaps they are the wrong attempts?
I know SC supports itself off ads and Google but people come here for the cheats rather than the community. Why don't you guys try going out to other forums (there's a specialty genre of forums just for free advertising) that can offer tons of new ways to advertise.
One example would be Forum Promotion. Forum Promotion offers posting boosting services, reviews from forum management experts, ad services to create backlinks, different ways to gain exposure to people actually interested in the community aspect of the internet, and more.
Being a long time member of Forum Promotion, I personally know that hardly any good gaming communities ever make there way through FP's doors. With everything Super Cheats offered, I'd say you'd pick up a decent audience over time if a few members of Super Cheat's staff went to forums like Forum Promotion and worked to promote.
Alongside promotion forums, advertising via Twitter is an excellent community tool. If you use the right hashtags, tag the right people, your tweets will be exposed to a large audience. I know personally Twitter has a huge gaming community from a RuneScape fansite Twitter account I used to run.
Different method from above and I know that this has been suggested many many times before but I believe consolidating the thousand+ forums you have here will make SC overall more appealing as right now, it's intimidating and people get scared from posting.
