I also think there are a lot of Beckett users that spend no time on the forums. Basically a handful of people that make most of the posts.
After a few weeks of little activity for me due to time constraints I've got back into the trading side and completed several trades in the past few days. It isn't perfect here but I think it is the best option. I may use Zistle as an option trying to find more rare cards.

I'm sure you'll have 30 people remind you that Beckett value has nothing to do with "actual value," which we all know is established only by the most recent Ebay sale (insert eye roll here). But I definitely agree that it definitely lacks that concept of value, which is why I like trading here. Obviously if I'm selling something, 90% of the time I expect to get significantly below BV. But when it comes to trading, I don't think I've had anyone that doesn't at least use it as a reference.
So, yeah, it's not perfect here, but it's the best I've come across.

I guess it's another avenue with which to search for harder to find stuff, but I'm just not seeing that much promise for the future.
