Anyway let's get into it: Primary Announcement: Here's some incredibly interesting statistics about the site over a month's time: Did you know 8,477 posts have been made from February 8th to March 8th?

The contest ended this morning at 12AM EST. Maps were reviewed as they came in which was great work by the judges. Here's your judging team: Alzarahn (Blueprint Forge Group) WARHOLIC (The Halo Council) Ducain23 SaItyKoalaBear Rezix333 OakleyHiDef (THFE) Psychoduck (THFE) Spades N AZ Absolute Dog Featured Map We all know and love Community Mod skummgummigubbe to be a good competitive Halo player, racer, and Forger. I want to show to you his map that he made for the Meet Your Maker Contest called Loading Dock. Here's what it looks like at both spawn points but with different colors: A great interior map made for competitive 4v4 play. Find skumm's post for his map with all screenshots here. NEW MODERATOR Well there's finally been a proper announcement thread posted for our newest Community Moderator RedStarRocket91! Not only was there a change in the Moderating Team, but there has also been a change in Moderating color. It went from this to this. Much easier on the eyes. Anyway, everyone MUST go congratulate RedStarRocket in his announcement thread here. NEW LEGENDARY MEMBER "In the pattern set by Spectral Jester about retired staff members who have given greatly to our community, Quantum has been added to the ranks of 'Legendary' members. Quantum joined us long ago simply searching for information about Halo. He had no XBL and just wanted to be part of the community of Halo and do what he could to help us be what we were, what we are. He, within days of joining, came forward and offered to create signatures for the site since EGYPTIANGHETTO had taken a leave of absence. He was working with simple art soft ware and doing a bang up job for us. He was liked by all who met him and soon became a well known and daily member of the site. He continued his membership and assistance for the community and soon rose to the Face Book page. I was a personal fan of his selfless desire to always help out, never wanting anything in return. He was a prime example of quality membership. His departure and reasons for it were an eye opener to some, a noted and growing feeling by others. I am happy to announce his inclusion into the ranks of Legendary members." All written in Absolute Dog's words himself. Why didn't I just provide a link? Because I couldn't say it better than Dog did and it would've dishonored this incredible member's rite of passage to the Legendary Member status. Congrats Quantum! If you want to congratulate him too then I will actually provide the link for you: CONGRATULATE HIM NOW. GAMING NEWS General Gaming News Wrap-up III was completed as a favor for Lil Dog. Find it here: Wrapup within a Wrapup PLAY DATES Reach Play Date The Community Reach Play Date takes place every second weekend of the month. This week's had an alright turn out, we had a 7 person party max which is better than the last Reach Play Date . We had a good time though we went into Forge and spawned things and killed each other in a Forge fight, and then we went into matchmaking skumm had to resort to some sort of outlandish cheating to beat us. Overall we had a good time even if it was pretty short.

FORGE 343 Industries Community Forum and The Halo Forge Epidemic bring you the Meet Your Maker 4v4 Infinity Slayer Forge Contest.

Badass trailer video and rules here. Submission thread that you can post your maps in here. Featured Map This map caught my eye when I stumbled upon it purely because of its name. Pokecoaster, made by @NukedIceCream, is a race map put into the 'Race Map Submissions' section of our THFE forums. Once again, what really got me to read and check this map out was a member of The Halo Forge Epidemic commenting very positively on it and this time it was RLD Hot Tamale giving his commendations. Here's just a glimpse of what the map looks like: It's got a Pikachu! Most of the aesthetics on this map were made by NukedIceCream's friend: Lord FluffBall, so make sure you check out some of his maps if ever given the chance. This is probably just a taste of what he's capable of as a Forger. Find NukedIceCream's topic here. GAMING NEWS 343 Industries has released their video on the Majestic Map Pack dropping this Monday. Absolute Dog had it covered and provided us with the video that you can watch, and comment on, right here. Title update February 21st, 2013.

PLAY DATES Monthly Halo 4 Play Date More sad news for me and Play Dates: I didn't make it to the monthly Halo 4 Play Date.

Spades N AZ's friends list is full so to get onto his alternate account's friends list to participate in Custom Games Night click here. - All participants of Custom Games Night hosted by Spades N AZ receive his Golden Spade Award. DESTINY Last week we were brought Bungie's ViDoc about Destiny called Pathways Out Of Darkness. Shortly after that came out came this video by IGN breaking down the concept art found in the ViDoc and gives specific information on some of the factions in Destiny. I'm not going to include the video here, here's the link to 343i.org News Group adamj's thread. Please leave a like or a reply for him! Video. Speaking of our News Group's adamj, he has put together an incredible find for Destiny called Destiny - The Seven Heavens. Please read thoroughly, comment, and like it here. DGL This is it! The final couple weeks of the DGL are here. Now because of the lack of matches being played there have been quite a few eliminations. Here are your new divisions: Crimson Drizzy_Dan, Gazzy Mill Mill, Neurotic Kasper, Real Talk, da monsterchief, Sarge Majestic Hater, GermanShepherdD, SikSlik7, M4L1C1OU5, Lil Dog, Forum Dinosaur Info on the DGL can be found at these links: Rules_and_Info Weekly_Match_List Match_Results/Leaderboard Gametype_and_Scoring_Info There are no results as of this time. FEATURED INTERVIEWS imakequilts - Our head of contests and events here at 343i.org and a very well spoken individual. FORGE 343 Industries Community Forum and The Halo Forge Epidemic bring you the Meet Your Maker 4v4 Infinity Slayer Forge Contest. The judges are some of the biggest names in the Forge Community: Alzarahn (Blueprint Forge Group) WARHOLIC (The Halo Council) Ducain23 SaItyKoalaBear Rezix333 OakleyHiDef (THFE) Psychoduck (THFE) Spades N AZ Absolute Dog Those really are HUGE names. Badass trailer video and rules here. Submission thread that you can post your maps in here. Featured Map This map caught my eye when I stumbled upon it purely because of its name. Pokecoaster, made by @NukedIceCream, is a race map put into the 'Race Map Submissions' section of our THFE forums. Once again, what really got me to read and check this map out was a member of The Halo Forge Epidemic commenting very positively on it and this time it was RLD Hot Tamale giving his commendations. Here's just a glimpse of what the map looks like: It's got a Pikachu! Most of the aesthetics on this map were made by NukedIceCream's friend: Lord FluffBall, so make sure you check out some of his maps if ever given the chance. This is probably just a taste of what he's capable of as a Forger. Find NukedIceCream's topic here. GAMING NEWS 343 Industries has released their video on the Majestic Map Pack dropping this Monday. Absolute Dog had it covered and provided us with the video that you can watch, and comment on, right here. Title update February 21st, 2013. Spectral Jester (who is enjoying life as a regular member on the site) got the inside story on it when others were confused. I won't give you a synopsis, I'd like you to read and comment on his post here. PLAY DATES Monthly Halo 4 Play Date More sad news for me and Play Dates: I didn't make it to the monthly Halo 4 Play Date. Again I'm sure it was another great one and it probably had a bigger turnout than our previous Play Dates seeing as most people own Halo 4 now in the community. Info on all contests and events can be found by clicking the title of the section that says PLAY DATES. Everyone who participates in any Community Play Dates gets the Gamer Award: Attend Play Dates, rack up awards! Speaking of Community Play Dates, is there a Play Date that you've always thought of that you've wanted to do with the 343i.org Community? Well now you might have a shot. Our excellent Site Moderator, Absolute Dog, has set up a thread for members to post their Play Date ideas. I highly encourage you to post your ideas in it. Link here: Death if clicked..

  13. Hello all thanks for clicking this link to the Weekly Site Wrapup I am Drizzy_Dan if you didn't know. Let's get right into now: CUSTOM GAMES NIGHT Spades N AZ's Custom Games Night Alright so I found myself back in Lil Dog's party once again on Custom Games Night. We always play fun games in Lil Dog's lobby like Flood gametypes on cool maps. Skumm hosted a little bit and we played a fun game of Ro Sham Bo Jr. where our Spartans were modded to be smaller but our weapons were the same size and that got laughs out of everyone. We played Drag Race and Minotaur and we even did some regular Infinity Slayer which was nice. Participants: DoctorB77, Banehalo, skummgummigubbe, Lil Dog, Osama Bin Bungie, Church, GermanShepherdD, Spyro, and Diskreat Spades N AZ's friends list is full so to get onto his alternate account's friends list to participate in Custom Games Night click here. - All participants of Custom Games Night hosted by Spades N AZ receive his Golden Spade Award. DESTINY Legends of the gaming industry, Bungie, launched their ARG, or Alternate Reality Game, for their upcoming title: Destiny. The ARG requires fans to attend alphalupi.bungie.net where they input geomantic symbols that unlock encrypted pictures that started blurry. The pictures increase in clarity with the increase in people that frequent the site. Each picture unlocks poems that supposedly leave hints to the game Destiny by Bungie but who can say what they really refer to in the game? Find Adamj's thread on the Destiny ARG here. The conclusion of Bungie's ARG will end in a new ViDoc. Hopefully this won't actually end the ARG but will give hints to the next direction Bungie wants us to follow it. Here's Bungie's new ViDoc about Destiny called Pathways Out of Darkness DGL Week 4 has begun. Info on the DGL can be found at these links: Rules_and_Info Weekly_Match_ListMatch_Results/Leaderboard Gametype_and_Scoring_Info Participants: Crimson A71William, Ryboss96, Skys, Drizzy_Dan, asdf_wrex, Gazzy Mill Mill, Neurotic Kasper, Vinceee, Real Talk, Vaulting♥Frog, Kalaphite250, IKKSE2113 Majestic da monsterchief, Hater, GermanShepherdD, Oni, Sarge, SikSlik7, M4L1C1OU5, EpicEthan97, Lil Dog, Badass_Sniper, Choot 'em, Liam Simmons Sheeran, Forum Dinosaur Results from the past week: 2/10 - Choot 'em went up against da monsterchief and lost unfortunately 11 to 16 2/11 - GermanShepherdD once again crushed his competition and beat Lil Dog 20 - 4 2/13 - M4LIC1OUS overpowered Hater in their match and won 20 kills to 1 As of now no division leaders have been announced due to the lack of matches played. Eliminations from DGL caused by inactivity begin this week. FEATURED INTERVIEWS Absolute Dog - Our humble Site Moderator's story of his time between his hiatus and his position now. FORGE 343 Industries Community Forum and The Halo Forge Epidemic bring you the Meet Your Maker 4vs4 Infinity Slayer Forge Contest. I mentioned that the judges would be huge names in the Forge Community and so I actually got a list of the entire team and it is awesome. I asked Absolute Dog who some of the judges were and he told me: "The judges are Alzarahn (of Blueprint Forge Group), WARHOLIC(of The Halo Council), Ducain23, SaItyKoalaBear, Rezix333, OakleyHiDef(of THFE), Psychoduck(of THFE), Spades N AZ and myself. That is the entire team." Those really are HUGE names. Check out the badass trailer video and the rules here. Submission thread that you can post your maps in is here. Featured Map Here's a map that caught my eye in our Forge forums. The map is called Dusk and was Forged by a member named @Yama. His map is very aesthetically pleasing and aims to be ideal for 1v1s and 2v2s. I'd love to provide a screenshot of the map but for some reason I'm just not able to copy and paste a picture nor use the media BBCode for it. *cough Choot 'em help me cough cough* I immediately knew this would be a good map when I saw that THFE's Psychoduck posted the last comment really thanking Yama for the time and information he provided. Check out the map here please. GAMING NEWS Member of our 343i.org News Group, Lil Dog, has begun a wrap-up of his own. It's well done and shows you pictures from the topics discussed and he also includes his own blurbs on them. If you're interested in all that gaming news has to offer in a week click here. QUILT QUALIFYING PLAY DATE Halo 3 Play Date Much better turn out with the Halo 3 Play Date than last week's Reach Play Date. We started off with some matchmaking then went into some custom games. We played Slayer mostly but we also played some objectives like One Flag, Juggernaut, and Territories. There was a good amount of lag to no one's surprise but that wasn't going to make us quit a game that we all love. All in all it was a good time. If you weren't there you missed out. Here's who I saw: Absolute Dog, imakequilts, JXZAW, Red Death, EliteISnip3r, HaloGeek, Elite, skummgummigubbe, Bobo Magroto, DoctorB77, adamj004, and Lil Dog At the later lobby after 6PM EST: Total Mayh3m, SweatyBagels, Harbinger, HaloGeek, Absolute Dog, and imakequilts Everyone who participates in any Community Play Dates gets the Gamer Award: Attend Play Dates, rack up awards!

Another pretty packed week this week so here we go: I've changed my font to white throughout the post making this topic mobile UNfriendly. No more mobile site if you want to read these. You can be the judge of whether that's good or not haha. CRAZY GRUNT'S RIDDLE CHALLENGE The Crazy Grunt's Riddle Challenge is a humorous and brain stimulating forum game. One person comes up with a Halo related riddle and then the rest of the participants have to solve that riddle and the one who gets the right answer wins the point. The rule is that each player gets one guess per post and waits for the riddler to respond to whether they were right or wrong before they can post again. The score to win has varied over the 4 rounds but this round players have to solve 10 riddles to get the prize: The Riddler Award Round 4 has just begun. If you want to play, go ahead and follow it right here. Previous winners of the Crazy Grunt's Riddle Challenge include: Hᴜᴍᴘsᴛʏʟᴇs, SykoWolf, and Vaulting♥Frog CUSTOM GAMES NIGHT Spades N AZ's Custom Games Night This week's Custom Games Night was pretty interesting. This week I was in the 20 and under lobby hosted by Lil Dog. We started with Ro Sham Bo (Lil Dog's favorite), then we played Rocketeer which was this awesome map where you're in like a giant ball with no gravity so everyone's jumping all over and you spawn in the air and everyone has rocket launchers. It's crazy. Moving on. This was different the when Spades hosts, there were shorter games and more slaying. Eventually I made it into Spades's lobby and we played Flood gametypes on very aesthetic maps and race maps. Participants: Forum Dinosaur, Lil Dog, skummgummigubbe, HaloGeek, D-38 Boss, SikSlik7, DocSpartanO07, RelevantEagle22, Absolute Dog, Spades N AZ, URBAN B0BCAT, Darth Human, Vaulting♥Frog, >, and Sam The Great Can't get on Spades's friends list?

FEATURED INTERVIEWS Quantum - Former Staff member mainly working with our Art Department who has just recently retired. This is an old interview I did with him last year. Chris Schlerf - Halo 4 senior writer, Chris Schlerf , was interiewed by Insane54, the Community Manager of our site's affiliate: Halo Customs. FORGE Site Moderator Absolute Dog is not new to Forge. He has always supported, promoted, and expressed intrigue and appreciation for Forge and Forgers alike. It's because of him that our Forge community is so populous. He's always active in the Forge forums and this week he posted some very helpful tutorials on how to make maps for gametypes such as Flood , GrifBall , and Extraction . Dog's also made a thread for people looking to get into Forge that have not yet because they didn't know where to start. Here's AD's beginner Forge Tutorial Thread Also in Forge news: 343 Industries Community Forum and The Halo Forge Epidemic bring you the Meet Your Maker 4vs4 Infinity Slayer Forge Contest. Lots of huge names in the Forge community of Halo will be judging, I'm talking top Forgers of all of Forge. Check out the trailer video and the rules here. There's already a submission thread that you can post in here. GOODBYE Senior member, former Member of the Month, former Staff of the Art Department. These are just a few things that could define Quantum as a member on the site. Quantum was someone I looked up to on the site immediately because of how maturely he presented himself even though he was one of the youngest members on the site at the time. You can find his resignation thread and tell him to come back soon here. PLEASE, I urge everyone who is reading to take the time to read this: Quantum's 1000th post milestone, and a HUGE milestone at that. CLICK HERE. HELLO Some of you may know him, some of you may not know him but his name is Mr. Biggles. Mr. Biggles was a very influential and well behaved Staff member on the site, a model for how Staff should act in my opinion. But one day personal life got intertwined with forum life and anger was displaced onto some members leading to a ban for Mr. Biggles. But right now he has been allowed back to the community with a fresh start as Member. Former MoM with a post count that used to be over 4,000, Biggles gives his formal apology here. PLAY DATE Reach Play Date The Reach Play Date wasn't bad. It's too bad it wasn't as populated as I thought it'd be. We played fun customs like free for all slayer and infection and a really cool race map. Eventually we went into matchmaking and we destroyed our first team of opponents. Second game not so good . Here's who I saw there in my time: Absolute Dog, Bobo Magroto, HaloGeek, Frankenzer, highplainsdrifter, Onma 'Aerusee, Insignia, skummgummigubbe, and Vaulting♥Frog Everyone who participates in any Community Play Dates gets the Gamer Award: PODCAST The 343i.org Podcast just came out! The Podcast is run by LiQuidßioniX♠, SykoWolf, Sarge, and Minuette. It basically does what this thread right here does except they talk and have guests and you can really feel the energy when you listen.

The President doesn't have any special powers whatsoever other than being able to say they're the President but that doesn't keep the fun out of it.

Here's a quote from 26 time father Choot 'em: YOUTUBE Ducain and Absolute Dog made an excellent video promoting the site and YouTube submissions to ours and Ducain's channels. AD gives some tips on how to post your videos in a presentable way and Ducain does a great job of making us sound good as a growing site.

  16. I have made this topic in reply to Total Mayh3m's speech over the change of the Community Forums. http://www.343industries.org/forum/topic/23323-a-message-to-the-community/ Just Like Old Times, eh Bud- Alright, so I see a bundle of you guys all in the Shoutbox everyday or in the forums making posts. I also see some of you guys getting your names mentioned, or maybe I see you post a status update. Well, sadly, whenever I look at the Status Updates, which is the only place where it's the same as always, everyone acts as the Community did way back in July 2012. It seems that everyone is friendly in the Status Updates, why you ask? I think it's because people only reply in Status Updates if it's their friend, if they're not your friend, then they most likely ignore the entire thing, which brings me back to the topic itself. There's no such thing as a bad game, only a bad player- I see a bunch of you guys, let it be ANYWHERE on the forums, let that be as it may, but I do see some really ugly creatures out there as well. I'm not talking about Covies either, I'm talking about Insurrectionists. I see a lot of people flaming other members, what has happened, may I ask? You guys were all so well, and so nice to each other a long long time ago. What has happened??? I know that you guys are going to reply saying things like “It's the way I am, deal with it.” or maybe something like “Shut up, you don't mean a damn thing to me.” or there's those of you who say things like “Pffft, why the hell do you care about me? I don't care about you. Now beat it.”. But we all know that deep down on the inside, you have something else going on. Let it be family problems, stress, school, school work, work, bullies, or just something that is bothering you. Don't let that stuff get to you, geez, I mean, we all do hate things like that, Absolute Dog is a real good example at against bullying. Just keep it down, don't let it out on your friends, or any of us. If only it were so easy- This site is a Community, what do we do? We work together and help each other out at the best of our ability. As Mayh3m posted, he sees people redirect them to halo.xbox.com, but I would like to know; why do we do it? If people come here to 343 Industries Community Forums looking for help, then they are here for OUR help, telling them to go to halo.xbox.com is just a waste of our time and their time. How about instead of redirecting them, we do it this way: “These aren't the official forums, but I will try to help you out the best I can, if I can't, maybe another member can.” or something like this “We can try to help you out, what is it that you're having problems with?” But if it's something no one can answer, one person just needs to say “None of us know what your problem is, wish we could help, but you'll have to try Halo Waypoint; you might get lucky and find an answer there. If you don't have the link, I can give it to you if you wish.” Just simple things like that will make it look better for us. - now we all like to troll here and there every once and awhile. I'll admit, even I do. But I think it's time we put the trolling down a tad bit. I mean, if it's during a time when the Shoutbox is quiet, and you guys want to mess around, I mean sure, go ahead lets have some fun. But constant trolling and flaming isn't good for us. Imagine this, there's a 12 year old child with leukemia and all we do is troll him and flame him. Later on, the kid writes a Status Update that day- “I came to this site to get help, I only have two months left before I die of leukemia, and all people on the internet do is bully me and think it's funny. I am crying in tears as I type this, I have my mother holding me and my older sister trying to calm me down, thanks you guys.” Haters gone Hating- Alright, so yes we get it, this is a Halo fan site; but I guess you guys haven't read the section called 'Other Games', so that means we must at LEAST talk about one other game. A really good example of this would be Call of Duty, one of Halo's most competitive games made. I have noticed that some of you guys talk trash about it to other members just to flame them, but truth is, it's not that bad of a game as people say it is. Many of you who talk trash about it have a copy of one of the games anyways! So there's no real point in flaming other members over it, who knows? Maybe one of your best friends on here love that game, but they see you talking trash and then they ease their way out of the friendship, and then turn around to your enemies side. Theater Talk- One of the most popular things that happen in the Shoutbox is Back Seat Moderating let it be accidental or intended. Doesn't matter. If you have noticed, which I bet you have, members get really upset when you back seat moderate, especially the Moderators, it's not your job so maybe it's best we all keep away from it. When someone back seat moderates for breaking a rule, not only do they break that rule, but they do cause a disruption. In order to back seat moderate, they have to break a rule, so you are yelling at them for breaking a rule, whilst breaking it yourself. But we all know, once one member gets upset after this an argument occurs and sides are taken in the fight. Which then causes more trouble for our beloved Moderating Team, so I say we just keep it clean and leave it where it lay. Saying something occasionally like “Hey, I'm being nice about this, but please don't do that, it's actually against the rules, we'd hate to see a member like you leave.” If they get upset, just ignore it, let a Moderator handle it if they see it go out of control. Fun with some keg- Alright my last one, TM did say we don't have much fun anymore, right? Like making threads and having fun with Absolute Dog, Spectral Jester, or Twam. Now how about we get something like that set up again? Get some fun going with the moderators? I mean, the Mods have fun with you, changing your name and that, I even think it's fun when they do do that. Don't complain about it, they'll change it back. But that's not everything, you guys remember in any Halo game when you got an adrenaline rush over something exciting? Well if you are having one of those and so happen to be here, why not let the fun explode right out of you? As long as it's not to critical, doesn't kill someone, or breaks any rules; then give it a go! I mean, everyone loves to get involved, you just don't know it. How to ignore someone: Go to top right corner of the website > pull the drop box down by your name > click Ignore | Preferences > type the name of the person you wish to ignore > add them to ignore list. This is how you ignore someone, but keep in mind, you can still see their shouts and all of that, but just like ignoring someone, you can choose to listen to them. But this is at your very own risk, no one else. How to report someone (via post/topic): Go to their post > on the bottom right of the post it says 'Quote' 'Multiquote' and 'Report' > Click report > submit how the post affects YOU. Also, please don't swear or break any rule, make a simple reason explaining why you reported it so you don't get in trouble as well. How to report someone (General): Go to the users profile > under Latest Visitors will be a button saying 'Report Member' > Once you have clicked it submit explaining what the member has done, it does not display quote for quote what you are submitting about; but you can copy and paste it. I advise you do it the same as if you were reporting via post/topic, that way you don't get in trouble for that either. My Personal Advice: “Watch out for Hammer, Bro.”

  19. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection. Let us show our support here at 343iCF by wearing the pink ribbon for the month of October! I have created a special ribbon for use in signatures and avatars! Simply copy and paste the image in your signature to show your support! I will also be using a special signature designed specifically for the month of October! Choot
  20. *Walks to podium...clears throat* It seems a great honor has been bestowed upon me this month and I was instructed to present an OP for the title that I have been so graciously chosen to receive. The day had been a normal day, frequently checking the forums for specific updates on previous posts I made. Trying to get answers to questions I had about Halo 4 and all of it's offerings. Then I received replies to a few PM's I had sent out earlier in the day. In the first PM was a VERY unexpected reply, first thanking me for a offering assistance and then immediately below, congratulating me for being chosen MoM!! I had no idea what he was talking about so I scrolled up to the original message to check for myself. There it was, in place of the "Dedicated" member group that I had been so accustomed to seeing...."Member of the Month"!! I have always enjoyed being a member of 343iCF and being in the company of such a fine community. I have always contributed what I could, without reward or recognition. For the members, by a member. It's not often that someone can say they are both MoM and a Dad, lmao! Now I can! I have made many friends over the past year and look forward to what the future holds for 343iCF. Now I would like to personally thank ALL members of the Staff for believing that what I contribute is enough for the consideration of being chosen MoM and ALL of the wonderful members here at 343iCF. May you continue making this site a magnet that draws more people in to continue site growth and always remember that we are all here for one reason.... HALO!! To Absolute Dog. A legend of 343iCF, mentor to so many, and a great personal friend. You have always been there for support and guidance. I am proud to say that I was here when you were promoted to Community Moderator and here when you made your triumphant return as Site Moderator. Thank you for everything my friend! To Spectral Jester. You were always there to answer any questions concerning the site, fully supportive of my ideas and suggestions, and immediately welcomed me to the site. I still look forward to the day we can meet up on XBL for some good old fasion choot 'em up! Your friendship is greatly appreciated! To imakequilts. You have always met challenges head on, have admired persistance, an AWESOME quilter, and one heck of a Halo player. I WILL get those Klondike bars back, lmao!! Thank you for your friendship and company! To Drizzy_Dan. Thank you for the vote of confidence that kept me from making that dreadful regrettable decision. Not sure if it's still customary for a MoM to bring forward one suggestion that could be reasonably implemented as a site feature... "I suggest a "Showcase Video" to be displayed below the shoutbox on the forum page. Used to showcase current videos of Halo, machinimas, tutorials, tournament matches, and other 343iCF site related contest videos." I don't consider myself worthy of such a title. I just contribute what I can out of pure enjoyment but I graciously accept the title of MoM and leave you with a few eloquent words.... "I will proudly walk the path of chosen MoM, holding my head high with dignity and honor as a member of 343iCF"... Now everyone clean those rooms, tidy up the beds, and get those chores done or no Halo for you!! LMAO!! Thank you ALL!!! - Choot
