I think we should just leave it alone. The set up is as such because members griped and moaned they wanted separate sections for various arts. Now everyone wants to thin them out again. The "reconstruction" everyone is suggesting isn't going to effect those with slower connections enough to make that big of a difference. I access the site from work and because of all the people we have using the same computer and all of the restrictions we have on our system i think we have the slowest connection time in the world. The site still comes up just fine. It is slower than my cable set up at home but the difference is hardly noticeable.
Sword arts are just that, SWORD arts. There is a reason we have a separate weapons section. Each forum section serves its purpose. If it's not broke don't fix it.
Enjoy life while you can, you never know when things will change.
