I've been seeing a lot of new recruits here day by day, and us older members seem to be few and far in between now. But I still remember the times when I was a kid and would log into UG first thing in the morning and browse the forums all day.

Somethings have still not changed around here. The Pit is still a hilarious spot, and headline news is always Slash, GnR or Zakk Wylde.

But somethings have.. In this thread I'd like all of us old members to post what we remember of UG from back in the day.

I'll start of by saying that there were hardly any fictional stories back then on the main page, but now all I see is 'Random Story Part 12' and stuff like that.

Also, when I first joined, UG only had about 50,000 tabs or so, if I remember correctly. Now they have like 300,000 haha.
I don't mean what I write in my posts.So don't argue back on it,and don't check me..Because,though I don't mean them,they are the only way I can increase my post count.

It takes a long time just to get this all straight.

Yeah, does '07 count?

I feel that anything before '08 is a dying breed....

Lol, I remember in 2008:

Damn '08ers!


Then in 2009:

So now I suppose we're making fun of '09ers now?
Damn '09ers....

I've been trolling since '04 but finally registered in '06

I remember the old layout. I remember when there were like... 40,000 tabs.

I remember the "Myspace pic" thread. Almost 5 years on this site and I have never found a funnier more hilarious thread. It should have been archived but it wasn't.

I remember when Cas fooled everyone and "got banned." Awesome April Fool's joke.
Man.. the old days.

Remember the "Used to be Pr0n" thread?

Good times were had. That thread was hilarious.

If you're a newb, then by year association, I'm a newb, and I refuse to refer to myself in such a derogatory manner.

I started checking tabs here in Jan of 06 after or around when mxtabs got shut down..then I lurked until May...and there you go. I'm starting to gain seniority, I suppose.

I will always maintain that the best thread ever was the one Impulce started with the kids at some school dressed as Harry Potter characters. Every picture was hilarious.

Then it turned out they were all mentally challenged.

One of those stories was when I posted a thread with a tab of yankee doodle went to town and said I needed to find the name of the song so bad because it was playing in my head all day.

Somebody replied 'that definitely is a megadeth riff, its probably off peace sells..'

funniest **** on the internet, i knew nobody would bother to actually play the tab, and correct i was! hahaha!

I just realized that next year is getting pretty close, and it's gonna be pretty awkward to say "Damn 10ers!"

I mean, it just doesn't flow right. "OH-NINERS!" sounds ok, but "TENNERS!" just sounds retarded.

The fiction section is fairly recent I think, I notice that too, there are a lot of random stories popping up.

And alas nostalgia for the glory years, I remember when a7xownz was kicking around, that was a good thread. I remember a few years ago I started lurking in the GG&A section and I stumbled upon the "it's stereo amp and i don't think it's tube" thread, that shit was gold.

Problem solving edit:

Maybe we should call them decaders or new decaders or something, then we can just collectively make them feel unwanted while all of us have a 0 in front of our join year. Let the new decaders deal with the problem of making the new year recruits feel unwanted, we can just generalize and say 0~'s are better

I don't think it can be official until somebody from 06 downwards declares it the last of the Old Breed.

Yeah, the Pit used to be epic as hell.

I remember buttsecks?, the whole Samnung thing, the UREH kid, That one night when everyone talked through thread titles, when the Pear first came around, the night of Assrammer, etc.


Gooooood times....
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When I first joined I was all like "Oh wow, people from their houses are posting in this website! This is super cool!"

Then I was all like "Oh wow, i'm learning how to play guitar from this website"

Then I was all like "Oh wow, i'm a mod now"

Then I was all like "Oh wow, I need to slow things down and focus on school"

Then I was all like "Oh wow, i'm a mod again"

OH WOW

WOWIE WOW WOW

Most of the important things


in the world have been accomplished


by people who have kept on


trying when there seemed to be no hope at all

I remember how epic the madmaxluke thread was, buttsecks, and the lawl comics (I think it was called the lawl comics, you know the peer pressure comics for kids).
