Honestly, my opinion is that we have ourselves as users, and other users, to blame. That along with generally growing up and moving on.

YLYL got closed because of people constantly moaning and bitching about reposts COUGH GODHIMSELF COUGH. That would alienate those that came to the Pit to view funny things.

Hot girls thread got closed because users couldn't handle the simple rules of 'no nudity'. No explanation needed there.


Then the shit such as 'only / official threads' kicked in and started clogging up the first page. That doesn't help. Rule 1 of keeping your users active? Don't piss them off.

UG has obviously declined, but I've been here for almost 5 years, have UGers on my Facebook, met UGers etc. It honestly feels like a community.

I think that "The Only X" threads should have their own section apart from the pit. Just so they won't clog up all the discussion in newer threads.

Also, YLYL should be reopened since Godhimself is gone.

Fair enough to both points. Plus, smaller community now. We can handle the YLYL thread more easily.

I think the people who spend massively more time on here than they should scare off newcomers.

Nah - I'd say those that act like idiots would deter new members.

Genuinely entertaining show(Plenty of humor meant specifically to go over the kid's heads and keep parents engaged and entertained helps) + very nice animation quality + groovy fan community, barring some nutcases like most fan communities + creators who have actually openly acknowledged the unintentional demographic, from online postings to in-show nods.

Also I'd be lying if I didn't admit being cute as hell helps too.

On a more on-topic note though, I'd really love to see YLYL back, it was one of the highlights of The Pit to me, and it's a shame it's not allowed anymore.

I watched the show and thought it was pretty good. At first, a lot of the bronies creeped me out, but I later came to see that there are some good aspects to the show and corresponding fandom. The UG pony thread seems alright and as I look around I'm starting to see that the creepy guys are the minority. I actually don't know why. I guess it's a matter of personal taste

You don't agree? There are those few elitist douchebags who cruise the boards expecting name recognition deterring a lot of regulars I know from straying anywhere outside the "only" threads and the like.

Hard to decline from the bottom. The only thing I noticed is that now instead of the top song on the Top 100 being stairway to heaven and other classic rock songs right below it like when I joined, it always is some pop song I haven't heard of before.

The small text is the correct text.

The Pit is nothing compared to what it used to be.

I know what you mean, I just avoided them when I was starting out on the site.
Don`t go into only threads either cause I don`t like jumping into conversatons, plus I feel like an outsider since they mostly know each other pretty well. (Atleast in the ones I look at anyway.)

i think we should post more interesting news we find on the internet. or cool apps or things like zooming in space. but people seem to post less interesting threads.

I still enjoy going here and have done so for years. There are still great threadstarters like Kensai and Madcap.

The pit has its ups and downs, but this is definitely an up. A lot better than the "step a toe out of line and get banned" days
