Many of the posts here break the rules. However, in my boundless mercy, I have converted them to something more suitable. This is but a one time occasion, and the next time, I will be forced to ban you despite how much it'll hurt me.
@crazymexican: Hello, that is disrespecting staff, and I'm gonna have to ban you for making that insinuation.
As of writing this, 2 hours, 53 minutes, and 35, 34, 33, etc seconds have passed since I became admin. Wow, it really seems like just yesterday I was given the job, huh? Time sure flies. Here's to another successful 2 hours, 53 minutes, and something seconds!
We've really come a long way guys; I'm proud of you.
It seems that I made a mistake in muting @Kirlyte. Even I can make mistakes, and I apologized to him. In order to set things right, I allowed him to ban a member of his choice, and he chose @Maudia. I apologize, Maudia, but it was for a just reason. I hope there is no bad blood between us following your ban.
As you may or may not have heard, I am now Community Manager of CL. I'm sure that many of you have some doubts about this, but let me attempt and dispel those doubts with this thread.
If you notice, it's not my SENsei account, but my senkono account that has been promoted to admin status. There is a very good reason for this. Those who are new may not know, but senkono was my starting point on CL. It was when my hopes and dreams for the site were at their peak, and I truly, truly believed that we would go places. As those pure ideals faded, I became more scornful of the site and my glasses which showed me rainbows and roses eventually cracked, and ultimately broke. I saw what I had avoided for so very long: reality.
CL in reality, to me, was a horrible place and no such site where a community of intelligent people could possibly thrive; those whom I believed were once unique and sensible individuals soon became apparently idiotic and lacking in common sense. During that time, a close friend to me on CL, @Ponta, inspired me to come up with a new handle. Joking about my knowledge of certain things, the word sensei came up, and suddenly, it came to me. Sensei is a Japanese word used in different ways, however, the most common English association with it is "teacher." That's right, a teacher. As a teacher, you cannot always view things ideally, on the contrary, seeing things as they are is an indispensable trait. Thus, as a person who would from then on view CL as realistically as possible, I adopted the name SENsei. It was an important point in my history of being on CL, where I became the person many of you know me as now.
But today, that changes once again.
I want to hope.
I want to believe.
I want to have faith.
I want to aspire.
I want to help.
These feelings from my old days on this site came rushing back like an unstoppable flood.
I once again take up the name senkono as a symbol of my refound love for this site. This marks the beginning of a both new and old me. I will treat you all as fairly as possible, and all actions of mine are within the boundaries of the rules. I will not longer abuse my power as I did in the past. I have even gone back to my very first gravatar to signify the importance all of this holds for me.
I've been called many names on CL, Sen, Kaichou, President, etc. However, I now only ask that you refer to me as God. Thank you CL, and know, today my faith has been restored, and a new form of faith for you has started. Let's make this a SENsational run.
As my first act as admin, I punished those that were acting out on our site.
