Sup Pit,

I was just looking at the online user list at the bottom of the page to see if there were any mods online, and I saw that there were 75 Registered Users online and 78 Guests. I was wondering why these guests were so content in lurking and outnumbering the people that can post, when they could be in here enjoying the Pit in it's inactive time of the night. But then I got bored of wondering that and tried to remember why I joined UG.

I don't remember much but it wasn't for the forums.

If you're a guest with no account on UG you should create an account right now and post in this thread with a witty reply.

I was lurking for like two years before I joined, then my account was inactive for another year before I started actually being here.


OT: I don't remember.

Lurkers are like dark matter. You can't interact with them, but they're everywhere around here, an ominous cloud that makes up for more people on the site than the people you can interact with.

I didn't even know how to work a forum back then, and everyone looked so mean at the time.

This so much.

I joined for electric guitar and GG+A. I was looking at buying gear for the first time. Naturally I ignored all their advice - but that's why I joined.

I didn't move to the pit for about a year. Then I didn't understand it for about another two

I had lurked for a while, but I gave in and made an account so I could rate and comment on tabs. But I never do that anymore.

To be honest, before I actually joined UG, I only came here for the tabs, but after awhile and much deliberation (and my band mate at the time telling me to), I finally joined UG. I then went to the Pit first, after hearing all the weirdness that comes out of here. The finally question is...is why are we still here?

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.

I joined UG to submit my tabs and I wasn't allowed to download any Guitar Pro tabs without an account. I discovered the forums a year later.

There are about 50 more guests online now than there were before.

My plan has backfired terribly.

I got tabs and read the occasional news story for at least 2-3 years before I even ventured into the forums, and it was at least another year or so of lurking before I joined, and probably 3-6 months longer before I started posting even intermittently.

I joined so I could post here in the Pit, but everybody hates/flames the noobs from the current month/year, so I held off for a while to minimize that.

I think I joined to comment on an article or download tabs or something, I don't remember. But I lurked the pit before I joined.

I joined UG roughly about 3 yrs before I started having a gander at the forums. It was the tabs and gear reviews that drew me in initially.

I wanted to rate tabs because there were some really shit ones with good ratings, and I guess I couldnt do that without an account
#21
I joined to post Guitar Pro songs in the Tabs and Chords forum. And amazingly, I still do it.

I've been coming here for just about every day for the last couple of months for the news & forums, but I kind of avoid posting most of the time because I know everyone hates the "newer" people...

Just get an avatar and a signature and no-one will care that you're new. As long as you're distinguishable from an adbot you'll be welcomed as a bro

I know we played a game of UG Mafia in the Pit and I never looked at your join date, because I played a game in the Group forums and then saw you post in The Pit afterwards and was like "Woah, he's from 05?"

I was surprised

Yeah, it must have been soon after it was shut down that I came over here. Also, I never really became a regular there; I think I joined only a bit before it was shut down. My username was some shit like ThriceThursday or something, two of my favorite bands at the time.

Ah k, I was on there regularly until I joined here to hype up a guitar battle/stir shit then some dickhead from mx decided to post goatse or M3475P1N and I copped a ban over there and the blame for it, though I was being a jackass so it wasn't fully unwarranted, they didn't ban me here though because they knew I didn't post it so I had to stick around UG had a good community back then, good discussion.

Yeah, been here a while, although I drop off posting every once in while, this is probably the second longest stint I've done casually posting which is probably only a few months. I went off probably when you joined came back in 08 for a while and then posted in bits during '10.

I was approached by a Russian guy who told that if I didnt join UG my family would be sent for "re-education" in Siberia.

Can't remember, it's been too long. I used the site for tabs, and then saw the forums, so I think I just registered to take part. I was really young
My God, it's full of stars!

I joined coz I couldn't download guitar pro tabs unless I did. Then I discovered the pit....
