It wasn't just the spark of sites like Reddit and such. It was also the death of memes as an inside joke, and the start of memes as a mainstream butchered idea.

People in the Pit have grown up, many have left because of this and the change in the flow of the internet, and I think it is infinitely better this way. Shit is so much tighter now. Before it felt like a run down burning city full of screaming people going ape shit. Now it feels like a college or something where you'll have your clubs and your familiar faces.

Also the moderating doesn't have to be as extreme now. We are capable of staying in line for the most part because, again, we've matured. Before how easy was it to be banned for shit? The pear is fine now, and do any of us over use it? Nope. Before it was an instant ban and it was used so many times daily.

This site may have decreased in numbers, but that's not a decline. It's gone up imo.

We're not in a decline. We decided to make UG a club and kill off all the dead weight.

I agree that it is a lot more close now and people have indeed grown up. Meh, I'm glad to see familiar faces and a little sad that I don't see others but life goes on.

You guys are my bros, decline or not

And this.

Plus, the decline of fun threads like YLYL and "flavor of the week" shoop threads.

I yearn for the "good 'ole days" of coming to The Pit and being able to browse the YLYL for hours, laughing my ass off. Now, I just go to Reddit to look at funny pictures.

I used to come to The Pit and always learn of the latest world news from various threads here. Now, hardly any of that gets posted and I get all my news from Reddit.

I definitely think Reddit (and sites like it) are taking a big chunk of out of UG membership. The Pit used to be anything-goes (to an extent, of course) and all kinds of threads were made daily, be it news, general info, funny, etc.

Now, I feel obligated to come to The Pit everyday to check in on everything, since I rarely go through a thread anymore.

Very much so. In fact, when me and my buddies had nothing to do on a weekend, we'd get together, start drinking, and "play" YLYL (with the YLYL threads). We had rules and everything. I encourage everyone to try it at least once.

Well I remember it being much more active and hilarious back from my lurking days in 2010. Still a fun forum and it's not like it's never funny. I find the lack of mayhem results from people being reluctant to make new threads, and instead posting in the 'ONLY' ones.

But as Pagan said, I guess it's not a bad thing that The Pit is small enough to recognise everyone's usernames.

I feel I am some how responsible for the decline of the pit in some way.

I can't put a date on when the pit started to turn into shit. But I do know that 06-07 were the best times. I left UG after 08 and returned in ~10, so I have no clue what happened, but I do know that it doesn't feel as good as it did back then. Maybe I'm just growing up. However, I doubt that.

I agree with TS. I lurked for a good 2-3 years (maybe even 4, i don't completely remember) and it seemed like the pit was way bigger.
