I would agree the MINI2 site seems run rather slow when compared with other Mini forums.
I would like to see a new section added for the MINI Coupe now on sale and perhaps the full MINI range featured in new updated graphics for the page header bar/logo. Squeeze in a classic Mini to represent the 50+ years of the Mini brands iconic heritage!
ie. Classic Mini, MINI Hatch Mk1/2, Convertible, Clubman, Countryman and Coupe.
Move the Classic Mini section up into the main forum area not hidden away way down and mixed in the off topic 'other autos' section. We should be proud of the classic heritage and many new MINI owners are interested to learn more, while some (young & old!) own/owned a classic in the past.
Keep past posts visible for longer in some of the lesser used sections such as Mini CVT and Minis in Motorsport/Media, etc. At first glance they look empty yet many topics are still of current interest.
Move 'DIY How to' section from 'off topic' up where members can actually notice it to post their own photo guides/write ups for many of the maintenance and modification jobs which frequently get asked by new owners (but then get mixed in and lost with other everyday more general topic posts). The Mini2 FAQ & DIY section up top also gets missed by many and has got frozen in time rarely updated?
