So I just quit one of the Facebook tiki groups I had been a member of. I believe they finally "jumped the shark". Now I am by no means a tiki purist, I think everyone has some leeway when it comes to creating their own space, and adding whatever they like to it. (but please don't call it tiki) -Call it tropical. (or sh*t) ! o_O

The last straw for me was when people are posting frankenstein paintings, boxes of pink flamingos and every other post is someone selling something. C'mon man!

You should post your “Sorry, I’m out of here” goodbye along with a plug for Tiki Forum! 8AB151B0-5E9D-4A0A-A840-92014D8500A1.jpeg

TFE on FB is a wretched collection of soul less ghouls intent on destroying real tiki, same as one of the mug pages. Love that Sven gets bashed by a few people, can't make this stuff up folks!

Can you give a link to the FB group you’re talking about. I don’t know what TFE is.

I think it's the "Tiki for everyone" group.

I'm going to create a group and just start posting pictures of pudding. Pudding for everyone!

I checked out that group. It is private, so you have to join to see the content. But they do have their rules posted publicly. Here is their Rule #3:


PLEASE don't ask "is this tiki?". It's up to you to decide whether or not it is. "This ISN'T tiki" is a trigger. Don't post it. Ditto with "Clown Tiki".

Sounds like they are very "inclusive" with their Tiki definition!

I was removed after they changed from public to private forum, and any new member seeking to join had to answer some questions. I merely asked if the forum was truly "for everyone", why was it now private and a questionnaire had to be answered correctly? I was immediately removed! LOL
