Where has everyone gone?

Seems like activity has really slowed down on this forum. Has everyone upgraded to a 5th gen or something?

It appears I am not the only one. Those issues are the same things that pushed me away over a year ago. Been spending more time in the Tacomaworld forum. I recently joined a 4th gen group on Facebook. Hard to tell whos who from here considering everyone goes by their real names as opposed to their user names. Its a shame though as this is the first place I joined when I got my truck in 2019.

I still check this site daily but it's been so slow that I'd leave after a post because the response time was terrible. It's been pretty good the past few days so I hope they found and fixed the problem.

The Administrator updated the forum operating system a couple of days ago, but said they're still working on a few issues, but it has been much much faster since he made that announcement.

The iffyness of the site I'm sure has something to do with it. Was trying earlier today and kept getting timeouts but right now it's working well. Hopefully it stays this way.

I had to download tapatalk recently to make it usable. I hate having to have extra apps on my crappy phone when browser versions of websites should work.

That and maybe people are getting better jobs and moving on to newer cars.

Also, check your insurance premiums and valuation of your car. On my "welp, it might be totalled" thread, had I known they would lowball me, I might have just had liability instead of full coverage.

High mileage 4th gens ain't worth sh!t to insurance no matter how well you kept it up.

I think many have noticed this item also and the pop up adds that you keep having to close, there is another 4runner forum that has been gaining readers and posters.

There's popups? I guess my adblocker is doing it's job then. I hate popups.

The site seems good at the moment.

I actually tried to log in yesterday and had issues with page loads. Where were you seeing updates about the site? I'm not sure who the site owner even is.

I too noticed a lack of activity over the past few months. I don't use social media so this has been my go-to for 4runner stuff. Hopefully things can keep chugging along; there are some good builds and projects from people here and I wanna watch them while adding my own. And ad-blockers are your friend.

The Administrator posted twice about updating the forum in the topic linked below.

Wow the forum is super quick now

I used to post a bunch, but I guess I've just slowly shifted priorities and haven't been as focused on as much 4runner stuff as I used to. I'm on the facebook pages too, but I rarely keep up with them anymore. I still have a half baked writeup on suspension install, that I never got around to finishing. It just became unfun to work on a car that I relied on to go to work everyday. Recently got a motorcycle though, so possibly that will give me more freedom to have the 4runner apart for a few days, while still being able to get to work
