Inferno_never_dies, yeah, I learned that myself by accident
It is sad to get turned down for an article, but it's worse, when you actually worked on the article for hours (my articles were ok, imo, but I concentrated on one game and tried to make series, people did not like it). Personally, if you cannot make a proper article, choose playing games for rewards instead for now. AND review articles to eventually figure out, why your articles are not good enough and you will see that having a high standard is a good thing, not just on the site, but in life in general.
If you really want games, try to trade keys on barter.vg and buy keys on sales. Do you feel good after begging for anything in life? I personally feel pathetic. And begging for gems that do not even translate to 1 dollar... Sorry, but I have no sympathy for that.
Learn what is a minimum wage per hour in your country and translate it into how long does it take you to write an article. Unless you enjoy writing articles and want some experience with it and checking out games, do not invest strongly in it and do not expect much from it.
And last, if you do not want to buy games with money, do you even need them? You either pay with your time or your money. Time on gamehag does not translate equally to money, so it is easier to buy with money, even if you are poor. Your time is invaluable, but try to rate it on your minimum wage hourly basis. This helps to get into a right mindset of "what the heck is wrong with me to waste time this way" or "It's fine, I can spend some time on that".
I wish there were more steps, like a way to edit article, not just reupload. To keep the communication going with people, who said no, to get better review and advice.
But gamehag is still in the development process, I think.
I hope it will get better, since they do fix the stuff that does not work on the site, but so far you just stumble upon things, rather than learn about it in a manual.
