I've noticed that less threads are being made and replied to than before. Where there used to be maybe thread changes on the homepage every few hours, they seem to stay there for at least a day now.

Is it just refreshing less frequently or are less people on UG at the moment? I wouldn't be surprised if its to do with finals/exams etc.

Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

Happens every exam season as you should expect. It'll pick up a bit in summer but really everyone will be out living. Wait until fall and all will be well

It's not just you. Traffic's been steadily declining for several years.

But rock is makin a comeback

No idea. There only seems to be the known users and a few spambots/trolls at the moment. I haven't used UG enough or long enough to tell
The time has come for all to see

The men behind the curtain cast at you disease



Yours Sincerely

Ive just come back to UG - I was previously active in 2007 and I think it's definitely got a lot slower. Frontpage (of the pit) used to be refreshed every few hours, especially around 5pm, when everyone got in from work.

Users come and go
Alas, all will be alright
UG will endure

Back in the day, there was a thread every week about "zomg there are 666 people viewing the Pit!!!1!!1".

And that was average. Doesn't seem to be close anymore.

Yeah, I see mainly the familiar users in the threads. I had noticed a slight decline in the past but nothing as much as this.

UG is my homepage and I click the home button to see new stuff rather frequently

Maybe it will pick up in summer. Apparently theres 221 viewing the Pit at the moment. Still seems quite a lot but yeah a lot less than 666

The Pit is a piece of shit full of people thinking they're funny cause they can drop n-bombs and lame attempts at "trolling".

A good number of posters (like me) just stick to a few threads in order to not subject ourselves to the idiocy of most of the pit.


are we browsing the same forum?
i don't know why i feel so dry

They changed the way they do that. It's no longer the newest threads. Wait, you seriously didn't notice that there are several threads that were made more recently than the ones on that list?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
#16
I'm pretty sure they changed something about what threads show up on the front page because of all the spammers a while ago. It used to always show the newest 7 but I think it does something a little different now.

Also, the Pit slowed down but most of the genre forums just died completely lol.

immensely.
used to be common for a thousand or more to be viewing the pit at any given time.

Wow. A thousand viewing the pit is a lot! I normally see it hovering around 220-300.
Craziness, this is.

It's because there's a dedicated thread for just about every single topic you can think of. To the point where it's fucking ridiculous. You name it, there's already a thread with 50,000 posts for you to get ignored in.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

This is the second reason

^^Agreed. I'm an avid gamer but I rarely venture into the gaming thread just because I know that if I bring up, say Hitman and they're talking about Starcraft II at the time, most likely ignored. I mainly go in there when some tech news like the PS4 is announced to see peoples opinions.

Which is a shame, because Starcraft is lame

And half those assholes are probably guests now.

It used to be most of the assholes were members who were really dumb and vocal in threads about politics and religion that weren't confined to one thread and I could mock them relentlessly.

I have never wished to play that game. My friend watches Twitch live streams all the time and I mean ALL the time. It does look pretty lame imo as well.

I've seen some people preach like that and it's pretty funny to watch UG'ers pounce on them like a pack of wolves. I genuinely enjoy watching it happen, when it does. Very entertaining.

While we're on a similar topic, have any of you guys ever noticed your profile stat numbers massively decrease one day and then the next day they go back up to where it was? That happened to me along with my friend count. I lost 3-4 friends and I'm pretty sure they didn't block/unfriend me.....
#34
Eh this place has gotten kinda lame recently. The most exciting thing to happen in awhile was the van gundy thread.

Yeah I don't really care much about numbers of friends or stat numbers, I just happened to notice the dramatic change and it got me to wondering what the hell happened...

I think he's doing expeditions or something? It's got something to do with his Archeology degree. I think so anyway. At least he's got shit going on.

Sure hope he comes back though.

The Pit needs a wee slice of Swedish Pie from time to time.


Also, how can we make The Pit more popular again?
#38
Kensai was like the Father that kept order in the Pit.

Calling All The Pit's Musicians is a good way to keep the Pit alive. That does pretty well.

Apart from that, I can't think of anything
