Posted 12 March 2015 - 03:31 PM


When I first joined the Halo community and signed up here at 343i.org, I did so with no thoughts of a lasting membership. I was looking for short-term help in operating Halo: Reach's File Share, but I ended up staying longer than I ever expected. Honestly, I fell in love with the community here and determined in myself that I would do my best to give back to the Community I had come to enjoy so thoroughly. 
Eventually I was offered a position on the staff as a Newsgroup writer- a position I was far from familiar with, having only posted a few articles prior to joining the team alongside Adam91 and Cooliest. While I didn't particularly enjoy the brutal task of searching for the latest news and typing it up, I did enjoy being part of what keeps the community active and closely knit. 
As the summer of 2014 rolled in, I knew that I would be partaking in a variety of endeavors that would keep me away from the gaming community and my laptop for a good chunk of the summer. I didn't want to occupy a staff postion that I wouldn't utilize and was instead moved to Communications to run the Community's Twitter. 
Upon returning I was offered the chance to join the ranks of one of the most demanding positions in the community; one requiring mature discernment and responsibility. I accepted and in August of 2014 I became a Community Moderator. 
I do so enjoy being a part of this community. I've had the opportunity to work on incredible projects with some of the most prominent members of this site, and I've been befriended by so very many of you. I've never experienced a community that has what this Forum has in terms of leadership, all the way down to new members that are already doing things to help the community. 
To receiving my first friendly PM from Victory Element,
To spending hours chatting with Azaxx, 
To laughing with AD and Spades on Friday night,
To running for President alongside Mayh3m (Tony Stark; SilverCenturion; whatever he's calling himself this week) and then later winning it alongisde Vitamin PWN,
To that trading card game we set out to work on when Bnus first joined, (Even though I kept forgetting to check the skype chat :T)
To that 2014 Fresh Start that would've never happened had Osi not been persistent in getting my attention,
To the listening of Sparky's bedtime story (and the losing of its bookform and the burningdown of the house D:)
To the laughing with Cooliest as Osi shot the rocket launcher in fornt of the wharthog, (That was the best campaign run ever.)
To the tutilage of Halo and Moderating under Mayh3m, (Even though I showed you a thing or two when we took it to Madden ;D)
To the PM subfolders that never were, (Red.wai ;-;)
To the Truth or Dare game that left me sore from laughter,
To the many time I managed to give Red a mini-stroke, (I'm so glad you survived)
To Austin, and his love of beanies (and Taylor Swift)
To Zelda and Hippie for putting up with my jokes,
To Halo5Follower's friendship and cat,
To debating Dircector, losing, and trying again anyways,
To Danny's good luck  that never was,
To each and everyone of the members that made coming here everyday special,
Thank You.
I have so many memories with so many of you, but I only have so much time to dedicate. I love being a member of this Forum- that will never change.
I write all of this to say, my life is changing. I've moved once in the past few months, and will be moving again within the coming months. I'm nearing the end of high school and preparing for college. I will be facing a lot of firsts, but no matter how much my life changes, one thing will remain the same- I love this Forum. 
I'll always remember the members here. Thanks for the memories.

This is the first time that I've been here when this is happening. This is disheartening.

BZ you were one of my first friends on here, and I was always happy to see you on here whenever I signed in. I always enjoyed taking part in your weekly polls and they always sparked good topics of discussion. I know you've given so much to this site, and your words are bitter/sweet to read. I wish you luck in your future endeavors, wherever they may take you. I will truly miss... our Obi-Wan.

BZ, you were one the first members to assist and welcome me after joining the community. The day you became a Community Moderator, I knew that justice was being served. You were always there to provide help when needed, and have been a great friend to all of us. You made this forum a friendly place to be when I had first joined, and you continued to bring in positive energy every day I had signed in since then. Not only are you a great friend to us all, but a great support to the forum overall, carrying out your job professionally. Always making a huge impact on this forum when staff, and when not staff.

I need to know, will you be back?




And thank you for the memories:

I never knew you that well, but your contributions to this site are plain as day. You'll be missed, Zebra.

Awe Zebra, I am so sorry to see you go. But as always, life does tend to take us to new directions. I wish you the best of luck at your graduations and the beginning of a new chapter. I do hope to see you on here from time to time. And maybe sometime we will crash into one another again. 


With much luck to you, :heart: Zelda

What if I don't allow you? ;)


But in all seriousness, I understand why you're leaving/retiring. Life can be pretty busy.

good luck with all you have left to do. Make sure to come back every once in a while!

I've just come back today and read this, sorry about this reply being so late as I count you as being one of my best friends on the forum, we both have Star Wars nerdiness in common. We both love Halo and above all else you were always here for me when I needed help on this forum and you supported the few minor things that I did do for this community. All I can say really is that you were and still are a great member and you will always be remembered on this forum as a true legend and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours, hoping you'll return soon.
