Re: Classifieds... or lack of
The whole site has slowed down - I don't have hard numbers to put on it, but there just aren't as many active members as there used to be.
A lot of it is just evolution - this used to be both one of the few good web forums for someone interested in Ibanez guitars in general, anyone interested in Steve Vai, and one of the few good web forums for seven string or extended range guitars. These days Ibanez has their own forum (or did), Vai launched his own forum, and back in '04 or so a bunch of the seven string players split for sevenstring.org, and then a lot of that crew eventually left for metalguitarist.org after we sold that site. There are just a lot more forum options out there, and a lot of oldschool guys have moved on to new forums where they have more shared interests with the community.
