Our newest Member of the Month requires no introduction for the veterans of the forums, but for those of you who have just joined us (Welcome!), something of an explanation is in order.
This month's MoM is perhaps the single most active member of the forums outside of the staff - a title he's held for quite some time. Indeed, he first arrived on the forums before Halo 4 was even a thing, meaning that he's managed to sustain his frenetic level of engagement for well over three years now. Within just two months, he'd reached the rank of Dedicated Member - and less than a month after that, he'd recorded his thousandth post. But he wasn't content with that, instead continuing to post so frequently that now, he's actually the single most prolific poster on the forums, with over 5,000 recorded comments - and perhaps half that many again in the Offbeat forum.
Over the past few months, he's also taken up the Mantle of Responsibility (sorry, I couldn't resist!) for administering the Semi-Weekly Site Polls, in which he invites members of all stripes to join him for a friendly discussion of some aspect of the Halo games and universe: if you want to see it for yourself, you can find the most recent edition here. But not satisfied with simply attaining the highest post count in the forum's history and creating one of our best regular discussion topics, he's even begun to produce a weekly news round-up of what he feels to be the most important stories of the gaming world - and somewhere amongst all of that, he still manages to find the time to be one of the most active members of the shoutbox.
Ladies and gentlemen, it's been a very long time coming, and he's worked very hard to earn this. Therefore, please join me in giving a huge and thoroughly deserved round of applause to a man who's truly well on the way to become a forum legend, our new Member of the Month,
Congratulations, Caboose! We hope you enjoy your month in the pink, and that you'll continue to bring the same energy and enthusiasm to the forums in the months and years to come!
