How did UG get started? if a mod knows or something it would be nice for you to tell me.

Because me and my friend made a forum and need some help(I won't post the name because it would be spamming) but we need help, so thanks in advance for anyone who helps.

EDIT* and funny stories that will make me laugh on how UG was started will be acceptable I guess...

EDIT2* Serious answers are still acceptable too xD

Bible, UG translation.

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning of zappp's creation of ultimate and guitar, the internet was without form and empty... zappp said, 'Let there be lulz.'

zappp started ug. he is the olny one who gets paid for being on it, at least i think, cause of all the addvertisments. i think he dose more with the music fourms then the pit. but all i know is he is the King of UG. end of discussion

It started as a single cell, and continues to divide; The traits X, or "UG Black" vs x, "UG Classic", and Y, or "40posts per page" vs y, or "20posts per page" continue to spread and procreate.

How is it started?

Ultimate Guitar Archive was started on October 9th, 1998 by Eugeny Naidenov (aka zappp) - a student of economic faculty of Kaliningrad State University, Russia. The first title of the site was Zappp`s Guitar Archive and it had just a handful amount of guitar tabs by 10 artists ...though it was started just as a home page!

As the site grew, interest to the site from guitar enthusiasts grew as well. In 2002 we've registered ultimate-guitar.com domain name and slowly started to build our own database of guitar and bass tabs. Till 2003 Ultimate-Guitar.Com was nothing more than a public library of over 20,000 tabs. In 2003, we've significantly improved the site with a number of unique (by that period!) features, like user profiles, quite fast and accurate tabs database search and tab favorites. By that time we've launched Ultimate Guitar Forum which has became one of the coolest things on the site with over 2 million overall messages posted and over 200,000 members registered!

Who we are now?

Currently, Ultimate-Guitar.Com is the fastest growing guitar community on the net -- it's the only guitar website that has gear and cd reviews, music news, guest columns, guitar and bass lessons and tabs in one place! And don't forget about the coolest guitar community of guitarists on the planet!

It was during the cold war when soviet union needed desperately something more greater then the western countries. During that time Zappp greated UG and soviet union collapsed!

Hmmm . . . I thought that UG was a result of the all-mighty smiting that God gave unto Satan in the before time.

Holy shit! UG really is 10 years old, I didn't realise that.

I was about to mock you, and say I doubt UG is that old... But luckily I checked.

how long after the creation of UG forum did it take for the pit to become what it is today?

Well, I'm not so sure about UG. But I am pretty sure that the pit was slipped from the loins of Satan oh . . . sometime in the mid 00's (naught's?)
