2nd thread created on Generation N


Dear Ninja Members, both old and new....


O_O


Holy Jesus. I'm sitting at a laptop with 24 people in a skype conversation losing their shit about the fact that this is being typed right now. Hail Mary by 2Pac is coming out of my speakers and I have my eyebrow cocked at my own screen. Seriously... WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED??!? loloolololollolololloololl

(sun) (love) (sun)

(ninja) (phara)


^^those will show emojis soon.


(by the way, I just unleashed crack chat unto the board. The forum is theirs.)



First.

I write to the Core. Led through and through by Candee Edwards. This community and those within it are quite literally my life. I learned to laugh again through NinjaVideo... and I stayed laughing even during the hardest times. And shit they were a bit brutal, but honestly, fuck that whole prison bit, shit's old news... THIS IS EVOLUTION.

The forum was always the first home to true Ninjas. From the color system, to the tutorials, to the art boards, to the competitions, to the music production... This place was amazing. And I would like to see that again. Because we are amazing. Because some of you got married here, and had kids here, and stayed together here... all these years. Because we built something so incredibly special and rich. Ninja was the most incredible internet library and I will easily say that the forum beat Ninja Main 1000x over. Venture down one hall and you find original art so evocative it's painful, venture down another and be blasted with lists upon lists of documentaries and comic books, take a walk outside and hear NinjaOriginal hymns and Lost Citizen soliloquies. This place was my home. MY IRL. And hopefully it can be yours again... This is for us.

The Core.


Second...

There are so many names here already that never saw the trusty Cobalt (your forum theme)... They emerged after the raid and they came out when so many disappeared. From a Cairo to a Gary and so on... names that mean ninja in a wholly unique way. (They'll need a new color O_o) These people never even knew the glory that was the original and they still show love and support. Let's embrace them.


Third...

For the future. These names mean nothing today, but they will... I assure you. This will be a network. From VJour, to I-POPuP, to MakeMe, to Trip Through My Eyes... Behind the scenes, Candee and I have been laying the foundation for what will be the next chapter. Legit dammit, fuck shades of gray, and one that will finally allow us to build that compound. Stay here guys. We've already done it for 8 years, we'll build over the next dozen. And far beyond.


There are no words for the emotions that are surging within me right now. No words for how it is about to be midnight and I've been in the same position since 1:00pm. No words for the hysteria that my core got to glimpse just a bit of earlier. As my members started to flood into chat and started to flood through these new halls... there are no words for the honor... the HONOR they show me. They are my truth. It took a long time for a woman like me to come to terms with herself, and it is because of them that I solidified my character. It is because of all of you that I know who I am. You called me Leader... and in the years since, I've become one. That is because of you.


THIS SHIT IS NINJA.





QUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN

Queen,

I'm honored to be a part of this community, to get to laugh, create, mourn, celebrate, and console each other.

It was with ninja I let women support me through an unplanned first pregnancy. And here I'll celebrate when it's time for the second.

It was with ninja that I created some of my most beautiful writings. And here I'll make more.

It was here that I met the women who have inspired me and helped shape the ally and activist I am today. And here I'll continue to make change.

Thank you, so much, for giving me this space.

I'll edit when I can think of any way to express these emotions, but for now - there are no words.

<3 Alice

I've never been one to post a wall of text but I will say that it was an honour (and a blast) doing a small part to help set up the forum. The old site was a monster. Intimidating and welcoming at the same time. I learned and laughed and met some incredibly talented people. I can't wait to see what this place will become but I know for sure it will be entertaining to watch!

Long Live Ninja!

To the core, ninja is a staple...you felt it alone over the years after we all went our own ways, the little something from your past that you had but no longer exists but you wish you could replicate, who knew it could start again. I didn't not really, until crack came back. Love the game
