So basically there always used to be 600+ people in the pit and now there are only 172 if we are lucky... So what did we do? Did we take things too far? Did we not take things far enough? Did Philip cause the end of the Pit and perhaps the entire UG forums?

Discuss while you can. Soon you will be leaving this place.

For the same reason that forums in general are dying. They're being swept aside because of websites like Reddit.

Probably because of all the other forms if social media mean people aren't using forums as much?

People stopped playing guitar and picked up the bass, then they dropped it.

People got lives? Everyone logged on actually plays the guitar now? People OD'ed on the pit's natural goodness? We may never know...

I will not stop doing this, so does that mean I will bring about the end of UG? If so I think it is for a noble cause.

But I have to know. Everyone make a list with every user that has left his whereabouts. I will ask them myself. I will take up this holy cause.

Because it seems this type of forum is dated, kids prefer their 4chans, and their reddits.

Maybe kids aren't learning guitar and older people quit guitar/or just stick to the main site.

The problem is The Pit is getting old, it needs a fresh new name. I suggest we call it Seinfeld.

              And there's probably a bunch of other reasons.

              Yeah, the Pit will be pretty much completely dead within the next few years. The only hope is for another membership boom, which I only see happening if guitar-based music also gets a boom. Not to say a lot music does't use guitars these days, but it's pretty obvious it's not as popular as it used to be. Actually, Guitar Hero and Rock Band were probably hugely important in bringing a lot of members to this site, so here's to hoping we get another craze like that.

              Don't worry guys.

              My threads will bring back the folks reddit and 4chan have taken from us.

              So i guess we will be seeing You Fap You Lose threads from now on.

                UG members keep in contact on Facebook? I honestly did not know that.

                So basically a lot of users flocked to reddit and 4chan? Are those the type of people we really want here?

                Another issue is the larger topic threads, it's a big problem, I don't post in continued threads because it's very rarely enough people will respond so you can't really discuss things properly and so these threads are dying because not enough people post in them.

                I've also had about 4 threads closed recently because there were already topic threads on similar things, I don't know how to get around this problem but it kind of cuts off a lot of popular topics being discussed, they should try and fix this.


                I also feel like new users are a bit intimidated by a lot of the Pit veterans, not intentional by us but I think our humor is very particular and they don't really understand that most things are just banter...


                Any 13/14 users lurking but not posting, please just post, we don't bite, much
