The Pit

Le_Bunny

What does everyone think about The Pit?
It is a very densely populated, amusing, silly and just completely odd place, and I was wondering what other newcomers' impressions of it were. Personally I see it as a guitar-orientated /b/ board, but censored and not as original (!). I really find it interesting to watch as the different fads or memes pass through, and what aspects of the inside humour remain longer term.
Some of it is hilarious, I think. Case in point: the 'You Laugh, You Lose' threads (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.p hp?t=895669), again a tip of the hat to general internet humour. I also love the obsession with pokemon, I think a lot of people play along to indulge such a juvenile passion... good game though.
Oh and in all seriousness, the 'Influential and Moving Pictures' thread is amazing, a great read, unlike most else posted in The Pit. (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.p hp?t=658441)

So anyway, what is your opinion on The Pit? Experiences, comments or favourite threads anyone?

Yer I've been lurking in the Pit since I 1st started playing guitar in 2004, never registered til '08 though. I think the pit can be f ucking hilarious, but there are certain annoying aspects, censoring swearwords? on the interwebz? why? I like the fact that there's always people online and always an argument or debate to be had.

I don't like it when people call it a recycled /b/. True, there are idiots who pass on the same old memes from 4chan, but not everyone does that. The Pit has some originality.

What about that 'Ninjas can't catch you' thread? There's some great lulz to be had right there. Instant classic. What about that 'Ninjas can't catch you' thread? There's some great lulz to be had right there. Instant classic.

Lately The Pit has been letting me down. I'm not getting my usual 'OMG LULZ' in there. It's like I can't laugh anymore. :sad: Lately The Pit has been letting me down. I'm not getting my usual 'OMG LULZ' in there. It's like I can't laugh anymore. :sad:

I'd just like to point out that I'm an actual Pokmon freak :D Probably one of the few in The Pit.

About The Pit, every once in a while something fun comes around. If not, you just gotta make them fun :)

I've beat at least one of the games from every gen at least once, and beat pearl twice and platinum once. I think there are more than you'd realize in the pit. You just gotta use sweet scent to flush em out :p: I honestly really enjoy the pit, recycled old memes and all. I like how you can go there for laughs or go there to talk about real stuff and debate with people. All around good tiems.
