To me, TheColorless.net is a place to kick back and discuss (?) certain topics after a hard days' work. A place for the modern geek, newfag or oldfag, to converse with like-minded users about philosophy, anime, video games, music, art, coding, and all the other stuff that makes us who we are.
We don't necessarily need to change the conditions in our city, let alone the world... Nor do we need to strive to make this the best site ever. We aren't the Dollars. We aren't Facebook, either.
However, we are the Colorless. And the Colorless is just as the name implies-- there's no judging of users based on where you're from, what you do for a living, or what care you drive, your sexual orientation -- whether you prefer subs or dubs...
Everyone is equal. Everyone's some level of geek in their own way. Everyone has something to say. And I believe that is what makes The Colorless what it is. The USERS. The staff has made a safe haven for we, the people, to chill back in. I can personally say that I've wasted (?) more time on here than any amount of time on Facebook, however amusing the site may be.
While the site may seem as if it's not very successful in the eyes of the staff, it isn't the staff's fault -- or anyone's fault, for that matter - it's the users being here in general. Everyone isn't perfect -- we're not all Chuck Norris. There will be some people who don't conduct themselves in an appropriate matter, and at some times the shovel may have to crack open a couple skulls before the community is at peace (?) again.
But! What you (the staff) has achieved, is much greater than you may think. It's pretty biggish. It's got a nice new look. And, it's become quite a big topic as to what to strive for next... Changing the world? Let's try local meet-ups and doing good deeds for our [irl] communities. Little PSA's via Youtube / Vimeo. Creating free music available for download via torrents. Maybe a little HTML-5 animation going on for the site itself to raise users (hey, eye candy can be quite deceiving (?). Why even bother at all to do these things? Well, it's not all about what we can do... It's about if we want to put in the time and effort to make ourselves well-known. I wanna live to see the day when I can look somebody dead in the eye and say, "Hey! I was a member of The Colorless, and together we made the world a little better!"
So let's all raise our glasses to the staff, and let's pave the way to a better future for everyone... At least everyone with a hi-speed internet connection.
With high spirits, and hard (?) work, we can do what's necessary to either change the world, or at least make this place a bit nicer for everyone.
...And that's what ya boi Luke "Flywalker" G. has to say on the matter.
Longest post I'd ever written, sorry for novel.
And just for whatever's sake, you don't put an " 's " on the end of a word that ends with s. You just end it with " ' ". So, the title of this thread should be "The Colorless' Purpose".
