The only time that this site has ever been slow for me was when it was merged into that big NoDQ/WEForums mess. And even then, it wasn't THAT slow.
And again, going with SlaM, this message board has all it needs. Sure, the arcade was fun to freeze up your computer every once in a while, and sure, the store made you feel cooler, but those things really aren't necessary. People would join just because of the store, and then they'd spam up 1,000 posts for the sole purpose of highlighting their name. At least now, spammers are only going to get a number, if they get that far before being banned.
I'm not trying to ridicule you, but think about this: at the rate that these owners run the site (and no disrespect to Rob, he's a good guy), would you really want an arcade and store to be implemented? You complain about the slowness of the site now -- just imagine how slow it would be, adding two more big things like that. They already struggle with traffic control and things like that. Bring in a store and an arcade, and things would only get worse for the forums.
While we wait for better times to come, we have to realize that a forum is just that. People should come on here for discussion. Racking up points in an arcade and getting so much crap from the store to make yourself "better" than somebody else isn't everything.
