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.

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.

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

@OP: Yeah I had a break from the pit for about 6 years and came back only in the last year or so. It hasn't really changed.

Don't read too much into my join date either guys. I've been here since 2000 and before the great 4chan hack of 2002.

Yah dates are fuzzy, I am getting old. I posted under a username Yambacon and Gsus_monkey. Email account kept getting hacked so I had to keep changing. Last year I looked for my old usernames but couldn't find them.

However what did happen around that time was 75% of the pit left for 4chan because some popular user(s) got banned and so they hacked UG and left for 4chan. The pit was a desert.

Yes, I've been here since 2001 (I lurked for 9 years). Don't be fooled by my join date. I remember the great YouTube multi of 2003.

But seriously, there was just a surge of users in 2006 (anyone know why?), but most of them probably just grew out of guitar or matured, or got perma'd.

Hate to be that guy*, but have you told the mods about this? You know how they get pissy if you're using a second account without telling em, even if you got a decent excuse.

I'm also curious about this one, considering YouTube didn't exist until 2005.

Or is that the joke?

The accounts don't exist anymore. Neither do my old hotmail accounts. So I'm sure its not an issue.

@LostLegion: There was a surge in accounts because of other sites closing. Not that its one of them but Harmony Central used to be the go to place for tabs. UG became more popular 99/00 for me.

Ah yeah of course. Did anyone here actually originally find the forums before they found the tabs on this site?

You might think that because my join date states 'jan 2011', that I've only been here for 22 months. Do not be fooled! I've been lurking since back in '92. The Pit has been in decline ever since the Great UG Civil War of '02, which of course was brought about because of the FunnyJunk Dispute in 2001, as well as the UG/4Chan war in '98-00. We lost good men those years. Women, too. Yes, women once inhabited the Pit. Of course, 4Chan came back in '02, wanting revenge and they got it. That was the main cause of the civil war.

There was also the Redditian plague of '04, the NewFag Revolution in '06 and the Music Radar War of '95.
