Color: American English
Colour: British English.

Fun fact: there's a large british language reform group that strives to reform british english, and make it more consistent to other forms of english.

Anyway, I chose color.

No, it was because Merriam Webster changed many words having "ou" to just "o" in the dictionary to make Britain and the U.S.A. have somewhat different English.

color because americans want to be special and spell it different than every other english-speaking country.

I use colour. But when it comes to word docs I use color just so the annoying red line doesn't show. The setting always defaults to US English for some reason :/

Colour because British are amazing, Americans aren't as cool and all my teachers will hate me if I spell it 'color.'

I use color more but my Mac autocorrects it to colour. ._.

Indonesia's English curriculum is weird, some of the schools have UK English for the curriculum and the others have US English. I still prefer US over Britain, sorry. :p

I use "colour" all the time, however, for other words I switch between UK and US spellings all the time.

The British (thus, the correct) way to spell it is "colour".

I'm pretty sure "colour" is the British and Canadian way therefore, I say colour.

I actually prefer colour, cuz its more colourful somehow. And yet I choose color ingame, cuz of space.
Language reform groups r cool though. They r constantly battling the mainstream. We got a few here at home too, bless em.

Even though I live in Canada, I still spell it like color. I came from the Philippines, that's why. However, I choose "grey" over "gray" because gray rhymes with you-know-what while grey reminds me of the movie "The Grey", which makes "grey" give more chills.

People from Canada also use colour. I'd know for obvious regions. We generally write in British English, but seeing that the majority of players are from America, I'd assume more people use color.

Some are rather extreme though, and insist upon changing how the alphabet works or replacing it alltogether.

I'm from U.S.A. and I'm supposed to use color, but I prefer using Colour. It just seems right. xD. British and Canadian people use "Colour", I believe.
