My guess is that because the cars changed, so did the people buying them. Can't really mod one with a CVT like you could the ones with the manual.

Also the dude that did the banner bought an Infiniti last I remember and moved on.....plus the 7th looks better so why put the 8th IMO.

ooh, yes. The amazing nisformance swap. If they start selling a kit to make things easier for others, I wonder how many people will do the swap on 7th and 8th gens. That may open those gens up to a whole lot of options.

I much prefer the look of the 8th to the 7th (Especially in person)... But maybe the main car on the banner should be the best looking one my opinion, the 3rd gen.

Forums in the early 2000's were a place to socialize. FB Tiwtter, instagram, snapchat all provide the stimuli for most people's online chatting needs. Forums are really just for technical discussions. And the 8th is so new, people still have warrantees, they're not interested in voiding that with mods until after the life runs out of the coverage.


At least that's my take on it.

Right now only thing you see in forums, is people who shows up with problems, and people whining about this and that

you want to see a 8th gen in the banner...someone make a banner. last banner we had it didn't have the 8th gen.

not sure there's enough traffic now to get someone to help us make a new banner.

I will say that as for progress updates and developments with Maximas, Instagram and Facebook is where it's at. I know I miss out on a lot alone because I don't use facebook. Friends always ask me if I had seen the stuff there and I'm just clueless.

In the short time I've been here though, it's fair to say it was a whole lot busier here when I joined.

A lot of us grew up and got more responsibilities which took us away from hanging out on the site. I know for myself, I got married, had a child, relocated to NC from MA, found out my wife was cheating and got divorced all in the time I've been around here.

Life became more of a priority than hanging out here even though I had a lot of laughs with the guys back in the day.

Alot of us also moved on to different cars and so we went to those forums as well. I like to peek in here and there because those were the good years. Still in the back of my mind to get another 4th gen and turbo it, but I'm enjoying awd goodness right now so...lol.

So what there is a facebook, people can do both...can't they? Maybe the average used moddable maxima owner has no idea of the existence of these type of forums. Maybe im just a 35yo fart. When I started here I don't think Youtube existed either.

I think the 5th Gen section is still much alive. It has retained a crop and corps of dedicated and experienced members who have kept up the flame. The 6th Gen section is hardly breathing.

Miss the org being active. It was fun back in the day, even with the flaming. I still hang around and help where i can with the 5th gen section questions. The whole FB, IG etc has so much childish drama.

I've seen this on pretty much every car, boat, or motorcycle forum I subscribe to...the dwindling activity. Sounds like this forum has seen better days, but even so it is nice there is place for people to still come to.
Blame FB perhaps. I don't 'do' FB nor Twitter nor any others like that, so forums are the place for me.
So many forums are now corporate owned, Internet Brands especially. You even think about crossing them and mods will ban you...I think they have to agree to that, lol! Throw in that everyone is having to be so politically correct, watch what you say, don't swear, don't make anyone uncomfortable and well, you have what you have.

It was a place where we did get info on a lot of mods but we used to bug the hell out on everything around here. I think when I started on this forum, that generation started the whole "meme" thing and we had a time with it. The smiley aka emoji thing too.

it's not AS bad with the ruling. we always say to keep the convo here PG and be civilized (don't flame and etc) and nothing bad will happen.

even if it's corporate i'm still here. yeah maybe most have moved on..but i guess i'm the super OG that's been here since it all started and still continue to be here to keep this going. only unfortunate thing is that i don't get too much support from IB. we had good team members to work with in the past but that kinda died off a little so if i need something that's out of my reach (permission) they are not really responding back.

trust me...i've been trying to get someone to help me change the banner for months. no response.
