* ''HappyTreeFriends'' has also taken this to ridiculous extremes. The third "season" started in 2007 and has only had 15 episodes, with three in 2010. Since then, very few actual "episodes" have been made; most are just short one-offs.

* ''Blog/BloggerBeware'', a blog dedicated to reviewing and sporking the ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'' books, used to promise weekly updates but gradually began slipping, sometimes due to Troy having difficulty getting the books, other times because he had trouble finishing books. After finishing the ''Goosebumps 2000'' series he was going to tackle ''Horrorland''; as of June 2015, only one ''Horrorland'' book has been covered by the blog, and the most recent post was in August 2013.

* Youtuber Creator/{{Yuriofwind}} frequently zig-zags this trope. By his own admission, he has a weak immune system and gets sick a lot, which means that there will be some instances of videos being uploaded months apart and such. Yuri can easily go from uploading one video in the span of a month to uploading 3 videos in the span of a week. [[ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated Occasionally, his fans think he's dead.]]
* {{Lets Play}}er [[http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCk3YpQUjgT0OtoiDS7t6i6g Ninja Boy]] typically has a good schedule. Then at the end of episode 29 his LP of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' romhack "Classic Mario World: The Magical Crystals", published on March 19th, 2016, Ninja said that he'll do one more "super episode" covering world 9 of the game. When did this super episode come out? September 16th of the same year. Justified as he said he didn't have time to sit down and record an entire world in one session for a while.

* '''TheBestPageInTheUniverse!''' Initially, Maddox would update his site on a weekly to monthly basis. Now, it's almost a running joke, with updates coming biannually ''at best''. As of January 2010, there has only been ''one'' update for the ''whole year'' of 2009. Maddox himself is well aware of this, often teasing his readers with comments like, "Now that my book has been published, I can get back to regularly not updating my site".

** Particularly bad with his LP of ''VideoGame/{{Superman 64}}''. He's now down to uploading one level per ''year''. Though it's a much more involved project than most Lets Plays, involving intensive research into the game and the entire Superman mythos, plus hunting for the game's incredibly numerous glitches.

Added DiffLines:

** The universe seems to be actively sabotaging Jon's [=LPs=]. The gap between episodes 7 and 8 of ''Superman 64'' was ''three years'', because every time he tried to record it, the footage would get completely screwed up, seemingly due to a problem with his capture card. When he tried to buy a new one, ''the seller '''died''' before they could ship it to him''. When he eventually ''did'' get a new one, ''it didn't fix the problem''. When he [=LPed=] ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', he maintained a steady upload schedule of episodes... and then his computer suddenly and mysteriously refused to turn on, delaying the next episode by several months. It's pretty safe to assume that Jon is [[BornUnlucky the unluckiest LPer to ever live]]. Ironic that he is such close friends with [[LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}} the luckiest]].

* The ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' web serials were affected by this ''heavily''. When they first began in '07, each week regularly had one or two chapters to offer. At around '10, the chapters were separated by months. After the toy-line ended, {{LEGO}} still allowed writer Greg Farshtey to continue doing the serials to tie up loose ends, but they stopped being updated during the summer of '11, and the website where they have been published is now deleted. And the story was nowhere ''near'' tidied up at that point. He has since claimed he has no plans to continue writing the serials, since he's too busy and has no place to publish them.

* GaiaOnline's Evolving Items are ''notorious'' for this. Since the site never officially releases a schedule or declares when the next evolution of any given item will occur, they're free to ignore complaints about the lack of updates. This causes TONS of InternetBackdraft when users (who pay real, actual money for the items in question) express their outrage on the site. The most egregious of these are probably "The Case of Pietro", jokingly named "The Cold Case of Pietro" ''by its own creator'' due to lack of updates, and the Kottan Bell, which saw a 75% drop in its marketplace value because of the several months-long wait between evolutions, stuck on phases with dull items. The Catastrophe! item has evolved twice, with the latest evolution having happened in ''September of '09''.

* ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosZ.'' The creator initially made a new episode every 2 1/2 months or so. Then he wound up taking a year and a half to release Episode 7. It took another year or so for Episode 8 to come out. then the series was cancelled for good, due to the creator wanting to move on and do other things. Part of this is because the quality and length of the episodes both increased drastically since the beginning. When the creator is packing in roughly six times the material per episode and spending time doing custom sprites, artwork, 3-D models, etc., it's going to take more time. And there was that incident where a troll harassed him to the point where he temporarily ''canceled'' the series. The troll went on to brag about it... [[InternetBacklash to his dismay.]]

--> '''Joey:''' ''(to the Baby Kuramas who are demanding to know when the next episode of YGOTAS will be out)'' Oh, you guys must be LittleKuriboh's overly-demanding fan base. Don't worry, I'm sure he's very hard at work on new material. One episode every two months ain't so bad, [[TemptingFate right]]?
