The Halo Archive. The center for Halo Universe and lore discussion new and old. The Staff on the Halo Archive are the most knowledgeable individuals on the Haloverse outside of the team at 343 Industries themselves. Not only does it have homegrown well-informed members but it also contains Halo theorists and admins from Halopedia. The Halo Archive is where you want to be to discuss the upcoming Mythos or any novel or game on an in-game universe level.

The Halo Archive is not only a forum. The Halo Archive is quite literally what its name implies. It's a catalog of Halo blogs by some of the best authors like DilDev, Anton, and Chronarch, news, information, and posts. Above you can see the directory of the site on the home page.


Member Structure

There are no ranks on the Halo Archive but rather member rates. The rates are equal but members are assigned to them based on whether they spend more time talking in on-topic Halo threads or off-topic. Outside of Staff positions there are 4 main rates: Lifeworkers, Warriors, Builders, and Miners. Builders have more of a presence in Halo-related discussions. Lifeworkers can take part in on-topic discussions but tend to participate more outside of them. Warriors have more of an online presence, and I have no idea how Miners get their rate honestly but they're gold and it's cool. Your rate actually determines how your page looks on the Archive which I thought was really cool. As you can see, I used to be a Lifeworker and my version of the site appears green whereas Builders would have purple highlights and Warriors have orange.

Bacon Beacon

The Archive Beacon is a tri-weekly state of the site address composed mainly by one appointed Staff member and added on by several other Staffers. It points out hot threads on and off the topic of Halo, new and upcoming site additions or changes, and, my favorite, Staff comments. Check out the latest Archive Beacon here.
