Has this forum been exhausted?
My schedule has not allowed me to come back very often, however when I do, the messages are old and some from the last time I was on here.

Perhaps we should all try to engage more, its a great forum and I can't imagine it not being here..

First we have to ask is why forum owner is out Phantom......No promotion and no assistance to us....

I guess people have an age and talked a lot and there is another forum with more active members than this. And there you have facebooks and the like....

I guess we would have to ask japanese knowledge people coming here to participate as they are the source....

Not the case for me, I'm also a member on StratTalk, a forum with more/active members and they also have a more 'lively' Tokai section.
Yet, this forum is my main site, it's my startup/home page and I visit several times a day.

I must admit that after 'the rumble' from a few years back, with some active members being banned (→ just an observation @Ned, not a right or wrong judgment on my behalf) the number of discussions have been reduced.

I still see this forum as my No1! But I agree that some more 'lively' discussions/reviews/chats would be welcome.

I also still see numerous new members* (*→ see 'recent joined' memberlist pages → http://www.tokaiforum.com/memberlist.php) making posts and asking questions, but without many responses it fades.
I think it's up to the handfull 'regular' (us ) members to kickstart this forum.

I still like it - I've been a member since 2003 it's not like it was back in the day in terms of activity. This was the definitive MIJ forum at the time. I think there's more info out there now (other forums, Facebook and social media as a whole). I think that has had an impact.

I'll admit that I kind of drive by the "hey what's my guitar worth?" posts these on here these days.

I joined here about 10 years ago and the fine folks here helped me with their knowledge, i've learned a thing or two and try to help the people who come around now as a repayment to that old guard. I do find myself wondering if there isn't only 10 or so active members left.

I do like how this thread was your 666th post Phantom.

there may not be the same amount of interest in MIJs, or Tokai guitars as there was say 10 years ago but that should not be a reflection on the TF, the membership, nor the ownership here

It is what it is & we should all appreciate the TF for all of the positives we have gained from being here all these years

And many thanks to Ned for this great place

I can't believe I've been around since 2006. Still pop by, but not to post really.

My tune of the day thread is at page 135, I'm very proud of it

My opinion since the last 3 or 4 years ? The most boring forum I know...Remembering 8 years back this was a great place to be.

OP should have posted this thread sooner , seems to be a bit more 'schwung' lately.

How about we all make threads showing some of the guitars we have? Might spark some conversation
