I wanted it and I responded to it, and I was by no means the only one. So this statement is sheer fiction.
I think 360 magazine's Club 360, is a good model to follow. It's a permanent fixture in the magazine and there is never any question as to its validity. The article is situated near the back so it sits among the less "headline" features and nearer to the other reader participation stuff (well, letters page basically). 360 magazine forum is quite a lot less busy than this one, but the posters there really do get stuck in with the Club 360 stuff, providing lots of detail in their response so that the magazine staff can put together a really good article, with them providing equally detailed responses. There's also a negative corner, which to my (and other 360 posters') great amusement was wholly occupied last month by a very funny poster called ClownTrousers (the game in question was "Enslaved: Odyssey to the West").
It works well in 360 magazine - no reason why it couldn't work as well or even better here.
