      You read right :D arcade is now back on Chat Addicts however I must stress that this arcade is still in beta stage and there may be problems so if you do run into any problems if you could let me know in the suggestions and feedback forum that would be great so I can then inform the developers of the arcade.

      At the moment we only have the default games installed but I will look into adding more later on :)

      Thanks and enjoy!

      The problem with adding games has now been resolved so I will be adding more games into the arcade over the weekend :)

      Thanks.

      Not a fan of it and don't see how the site will benefit myself.

      No for the fact is it harms a forum in my view.

      Based on 11 years forum experience and seen how it effects activity.

      Why does it, simply put if they are playing pointless flash games then they are not posting, which is the whole point of a forum

      Yaaay! Shortie. This is awesome.
      I will take a look later on.
      I really like arcades and competing for the Tetris score. :D

      That is supposing that the time they spend in the site was to be destined to post anyway.

      I have seen arcades affect depending in the community, just like chatboxes. Some communities spark more of a community sense without 'killing' the forum while others will well... make more obvious that the people has no interest in the content, or that no one is trying to make new content to keep things going. Sometimes people who otherwise wouldn't visit logs in more often and once they already bothered with that may post a few more times.

      Not saying this to change your mind, or taht it is always the cas ethe fault falls becaus ethe forum is not trying to bring activity in the forum areas. I am sure that you got your reasons to believe this and no doubt you are not alone in that idea. I am also as well sure there are forums ho tried all they could and had no other choice that turn it off and getting some members angry because it was really their main reason to visit.
