  1. Do you think Colorless is dead?

    Mmm, I've been on Colorless for a while now. It's been quite a while since I've last came on the site though. And if there's anything that I've noticed, it's that it's quite... dead.

    There isn't anybody really "replying" to the threads now, as there was a year ago. Perhaps one or two, but other than that, there's nobody. Threads are not being created as much as they used to.

    So, to the people that still use The Colorless - do you think it's dead? There's no life in it as much as there was. But of course, that's solely my opinion.

    Feel free to tell me yours!

    Invite more people, like spreading the word or create some ads in several sites to get the line moving.

    Was introduced into the community by word of mouth. :D

    Point is, it doesn't really help when people squat around doing nothing, disappear for years on end, and then come back and only ask why other people aren't posting shit.

    It's not my job to.

    @Dani You have just summed up the problem, right there.

    PS. @reversevampire If you want ads on other sides, pony up the extra money and I'll make it happen.

    PPS. Allow me to address this misconception.

    Since I have arrived at the site in summer of last year, peak activity on chat has increased by more than 50%. We average 4-5 new threads a day. It's nowhere near as active as say, 4chan, but that's part of the appeal. The community is smaller and more familiar and tight-knit.

    I only look through threads, not post comments.

    And there's your problem. And ours.

    It's not my job to.

    So what you're saying is that you don't like to participate in actual discussions or conversations on here, and only want to passively follow threads of others without ever lifting a finger or getting engaged.
    Gotcha.

    We really need more wonderful users like you to breathe new life into the forum :V

    I remember when I started. It was way back, when Colorless looked way different. Oh those marvelous threads, projects and derping in chats. Those cam-convos. Oh well, they're gone now. I had abandoned Colorless for about a year but I came back, and I'm surprised that some of you still remember me. Anyway, I came back and I'll try my best to be active. P.S. How does that badge system work now? And rabu?

    As the second oldest lurker of the site, I will tell you one small rule. Lurker cannot tell people to go and make something for him to lurk.

    You. Have. Failed.

    @AnimeShifter
    Badges got officially removed from everyone a couple of months ago, due to controversity and idiocy regarding the types of badges and the way they were being handed out.

    Now, all badges you might see these days were most likely given by a mod for the lulz or sth. Try sucking up to one and maybe you'll get a lucky Rabu :V

    @Gargron
    I've noticed Lycan handing out badges manually, but I don't think anybody else has received badges outside of that lately. And hell, we had ALL badges removed not too long ago, from everyone :V I lost all my shinies as well.

    Badges are given indeed by mods these days....

    Also, due to my excessive lurking errywhere... This place is 40% dead as compared to last year~

    No offense to staff though :D

    It may be dead for you, but for me, nah. It has still got that sense of life, somewhere. A weird life, but better than nothing, right? #:

    MEANWHILE, IN @DANI'S HEAD:

    LALALALALA STILL NOT MY BUSINESS TO HELP THE SITE BECAUSE NONEXISTANT OLDFAG CRED

    I've had to put up with all kinds of people with such attitudes (I like calling them mayfly oldfags, because that's how long they last before being never to be seen again, which is not very long), but you're one of the worst kinds. But don't worry, you're only the second worst! For now.

  13. #456062012-12-28 16:40:43Kirn said:

    I object to him being called an oldfag. I know that this word lost it's true meaning here a long time ago, but still. There are some borders that should not be crossed!

    Who the fuck are you?

    Don't remember it being that much alive back then either. Tell me, dear, what drugs were you taking back then?

    There isn't anybody really "replying" to the threads now, as there was a year ago. Perhaps one or two, but other than that, there's nobody. Threads are not being created as much as they used to.

    Recollection time!!: Would you rather have about five yaoi and yuri threads made within the timespan of one day along with a shitload of other threads that are absolutely useless and uninteresting or threads that are more interesting but less in amount? Would you rather have people posting one or two word replies on spam-threads to bring back the forums or would you rather have a semi-live forum with at least adequate replies to most threads?

    I only look through threads, not post comments.

    It's not my job to.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I believe that we have just discovered this site's finest hypocrite. Let's give it up for Dani!

    So now that you've just basically voided your own reason for making this thread, I suppose that we can just let this fall into the abyss.
