New reader content system launches!

Putting the "you" in Eurogamer.net.

Hello everyone! This is Craig from the Eurogamer.net tech team. I'm excited to be able to tell you about our new revamped Reader Content area of the site.

You've probably stumbled on bits of our reader content tools before, but now we've gathered them together and improved them considerably. You can access them from anywhere on the site by clicking the big green button on the left menu.

It's now much easier to submit your own reviews, and these submissions no longer end up in a holding pen either, but appear on the site immediately.

We've also expanded the reader content area to support tips, cheats and FAQs as well as reviews, so if you have content in those areas that you think should be visible to your fellow Eurogamers, pile it on.

To get things going, we've spoken to some of the foremost FAQ authors in the community already and invited them to have their work included on Eurogamer.net. Take a look.

Elsewhere, the footer on reader-submitted content has been altered to display other content by the author, as well as other reader-produced content for the game you're currently reading about, and there's a rating system that allows you to say whether you found something helpful.

We'll be watching and evolving the system carefully in the coming months, so if you have any feedback or spot any bugs please let us know in the comments thread below, and we'll get onto it.

Thanks everyone!
