Decline of UG?
 
So it's my first visit and post at Ultimate-Guitar for what seems to be a couple of years at least.

Is it that I have become older, or has the community declined massively? I can recall there being at least 700-800 people in the pit at this time of the evening...

Back in the day I remember there being a thread like once a week of the Pit having 666 viewers.

Yes, there are definitely fewer people on at any one time.

To be fair, I think the old numbers were greatly inflated by guests. And chung.

Evening? It's 1:30 here in PST.

There were a shitton of new users in 2006, if that's what you're used to. I don't think there has been such a large influx since.

Most people have switched to reddit. Reddit is huge now.

I remember the Pit getting really shit around March 2009, and it's been downhill since then.

This.

I've been using UG for at least 5 years and I noticed people float more towards sites like Reddit and 4chan. I guess people like to lurk and not read walls of text.

So pretty much the lack of people is due to (at least I think) people growing out of using the internet to talk about fapping and their bowel movements, they moved on to the "darker" side of the net, or they just stopped going to forums all together.

That and I love Reddit so I go there as well. That and I'm a /b/tard for life.

I spend more time here now because Reddit is just a massive left wing circlejerk.

Shit I've been on this stupid site over 5 years...

As if The Pit isn't. Didn't we have a token right-wing UGer who was always criticized? I forgot his name.

fender_696 11-06-2012 05:44 PM

I have no idea how long I've been here for...

EDIT: Over 5 years?!!

Jesus Christ. :sad:

The Pit looks like stormfront compared to Reddit.
