Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 100!

 

 

Last week I asked who you all thought would win in a fight between Thel 'Vadam and Ripa 'Moramee. Thel came out on top by the number of votes, though Ripa did have his advantages and would certainly put up a good fight if Thel was to win. Click here to view Site Poll 99, and here for the Twitter responses.

What do you like most about the 343 Industries Community Forum?

 

 

Now it was recently 100 years after the official end of the First World War, may all those who fought rest in peace. Centenaries are big this year. Besides WW1, we also had the Royal Air Force celebrating 100 years since its formation just over 7 months ago. Another big 100 is this site's 100th Site Poll. :yay:

 

Honestly this community has come so far, and it's great to keep things buzzing around here. Many thanks to Twam for creating and hosting this site, the same goes to all staff members who have maintained it, and most importantly the members who come here and post content, form bonds, and share information. We've been around for over 7 years, and I look forward to many more to come.

 

For this special site poll, I want to lay off Halo's lore for a bit (which I'd rarely do on this site), and focus more on this community in particular. I'm aware some of you voting on Twitter may not be registered on this site, but now's the best time to do so! A new member is family from Day 1. For those of you familiar with this site and the community it's created, tell me, what do you like most about it?

 

 

As always, I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts,

Spartan out.   :yay:

I've been a part of this site since August 2011, as a measly 11 year old looking for an official 343 website and unfortunately stumbling upon this place. (Kidding. <3) What I love the most is how easy it was it is to make friends here. Some friendships here have come and gone along the users who had faded away but some still remain strong with many users still active here. 

 

Even if the site is borderline dead, I still love that the site introduced to many people here who I've had standing friendships with.

in my almost  5 years, it has to be the people, sure I joined for a meme because of TDM and another friend being trolls at the time but then I ended up sticking around for most of my highschool life where I had people to talk to about Halo etc and as people came and went as did friend ships I'm surprised friendships from the forum have lasted this long but it goes to show that the community here is one of the few positive areas of gaming as a whole now with all the toxicity etc showing up more often than not.

What can I say about the community and this site that hasn't already been said.  I was here since the beginning, and as of writing this, I believe the oldest member of the site (Twam excluded).  In the past 7 years I have seen all the greats come and go.  Friendships form, enemies made and boys/girls become men/women.  I have watched the community grow from a handful of adolencent, to a thriving site of gifted individuals.  We've gone through peeks, luls and sometimes damn near the brink of the whole site collapsing.  Through it all we survived and came together.  We became a real family.  Just as real as any physical relation you could have.  We actually know eachother here.

 

Sappy crap aside, during my time I have loved most being able to mentor and teach the community about the inner working of Halo, and the inevitable fights that ensued.  This community is made up of one of the most diverse backrounds you can find on the internet today.  Halo brought us together, but is "us" that kept giving people a reason to come back, not just the game.  I can truly and honestly say that I love each and every one of you, as much as I love my own family.  You have all been with me through bad times, worse times, and the very few good times.  You have tolerated me, praised me, condemed me....and I wouldnt change a thing.  Patience and understanding is the core of what this community became and our unity is the strongest amongst all else.

 

Things have changed, life has gotten in the way and we have dwindled and stop frequenting as a result.  But we do come back once in a while to reconnect and touch base with those we have a fondness for.  Fondness and family, that's who we are.  And while I am on the subject of what the best part of the community is and being completely honest, I do have a few additional things to say.  Some will be a surprise, some will not.

 

Although this is an internet based community, I have grown quite fond (obsessed/drawn/emotionally attracted) to one member in particular.  I think we all know who that is.  She hasn't been around in quite some time and I honestly wonder about her every day.  Is she ok?  Is she doing well?  I have feelings for her that will never change and likely will never have the opportunity to act on, but I just wanted her to know in case she ever comes around again, how I feel.  Miss you Winry....

 

Second, to all of those who in the past I may have been overly brutish to, I apologize.  I get passionate and worked up sometimes, and as such, I fail to convey properly that passion.  Delpen, Melody, Azaxx,  Nova, Firen, Spades, Banana and Boss....you guys in particular I give a hard time to constantly.  You are all a true credit to the "family" we have here.  Your patience, understanding and willingness to forgive is what kept me going at times.

 

Third, AD.  The man the myth the legend.  But most of all, a true friend in real life till the end.  I know you havent been around Todd, but i hope Vicki and you are doing well.  You were the one person who understood me the most.  We talked many a night about life, the site and general bs.  I wouldn't be here right now if it weren't for you man.  I love you like a brother.  And to quote Star Trek, "I have been, and always shall be, your friend."

 

Lastly there are a lot of you I could not stand and honestly not sure if I can still stand you.  Those in question know who you are and because we don't talk, I cannot accertain the answer.  But, none the less, you are family.  We don't always get along with our family and this community is no different.

 

I realize now TL;DR this sounds more like a farewell speech thatn what I like about the community.  Sorry for that, I get carried away sometimes.  I'll just end it here with this :twin:

The site helped me through some hard times, and now, after all of those problems have been sorted out, I check up to see how everything is going and how people are doing.

Most of my time is spent in the group Anime Discussion/Recommendation PM.
