As long as guitars are still cool UG wont die

UG's biggest enemies are the copyright things taking tabs off the site

The pit has survived Communism, David Cameron's reign of terror, Bird Flu and Storm Worm.

I think we will be ok for another couple of decades.

7 years ago there was twice as much activity in the forums. reddit killed ultimate guitar.

And when reddit suicides, UG will still be here.
#13
There will be new mods, new users, etc.
It will definitely be a lot slower, more shit threads (cause lets face it, we are already running out of ideas for threads),

and I guess the new users will be like "2030 kids" and they will all listen to crappy music, and will not even play guitar or any instruments, just Macs.

I think it'll be here in some form or another, but I doubt many of us will continue to post here.

A lot of message boards have suffered because of social media and reddit. UG's no exception. There were subforums in decline here when I joined but now most are either dead or on their last legs. The Pit was about three times as active in 2009, by my estimation.

Is there any way we can get the numbers up? Maybe do advertisements for the Pit on the UG main page?

Back when I started lurking in 2008 it wasn't uncommon to see 900+ users in The Pit during the evenings. UG has seriously dwindled since then.
I pride myself on my humility.

The Pit will bleed for 1000 years and not die.

To the pit because i don't feel like doing real life.

Maybe, but things have moved on and message boards are old hat now. You can only stem the decline or offer something that people want and can't get anywhere else.

The brony fad was biggest in like 2011, it's pretty much died down to them only posting in their thread and some of the people who used to be bronies finally shaved their neckbeards and threw away their fedoras so they don't have those avatars anymore

Bronies are worse than hitler.
At least Hitler had some dignity.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

yes but that was mostly due to him being allied with cthulhu for a few years before cthulhu realized crazy hitler was

I have definitely noticed a decline with the amount of users in the pit, it seems it's mainly a few people having an argument rather than a lot of people posting their thoughts or whatever.

I think a lot of us are quite hard on the newer guys in the pit though and that probably discourages them from posting, there's a certain type of humor which is kind of unique to the pit and I doubt many of them understand what's serious and what's just banter.

Pretty much that'll happen. Macbooks are going to make it really easy to churn out utter sh!t without an ounce of talent.
A bassist is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

The Pit operates under a pseudo-Murphy’s Law state of mind. You can make a comment and "whatever wrong assumption that can be made about it, will be made about it."
