  1. During this final month of the year for 2015, we come to recognize somewhat differently to the normal process with who we decide most deserves this title. Typically the Moderators of all ranks discuss people on this forum who are active, contribute positive content and are friendly to not only their friendship groups but people they have nothing in common with. This month, we decided to keep online those three criteria as norm, however we're extending the domain to which they apply. Halo is the common interest all of us share, we are united not only as a forum here at 343i.org by it, but rather all of the community of Halo is. That extends from general game playing of the franchise, reading the books and becoming a lore expert, cosplaying as your favourite characters from the series or even joining the ranks of professional players. Whoever you are, you love Halo and that's what this month we're here to prove. Additionally this promotion differs in the fact that we are not promoting one person, but rather a group. Not many people may know these members who are being promoted as the representatives for what we're recognizing. These three members are part of the development team known as i01, are have created such a beautiful creation "Installation 01" which aims to connect Halo players who loved the original trilogy through a multiplayer experience. Not only will it bring back classic memories that have long passed, but all of this will be available for free for all people in the community when completed. However, you don't need to personally know them to be hyped by their work. This applies to all of us who wish to experience the good old days of Halo again, all upon PC, Mac and Linux. As before, our intention is recognize people who bring a wealth of positivity not just to our forums, but to everywhere and everyone that celebrates Halo as something that they hold dear. December, the final month of 2015 recognizes the team of i01 as those who brought us their latest development news on this great undertaking of a project. All members from the team* will be awarded MoM for this month to recognize our appreciation for their work for the Halo community in general. This is the first time that more than one person in a single month has been awarded MoM, but we're not awarding this to one person, we're awarding this to a team who works for all of us. TheChunkierBean ISJTrigger Progo And all of the i01 Team! !!CONGRATULATIONS!! You three as part of the i01 team on our forums are recognized as our top choice for bringing together the Halo community even further, we trust that your eventual release of the full project will bring the classic and new Halo community together in the way that Halo MCC was meant to. You can find the i01's latest trailer as the time of this announcement here and information regarding their project here! Additionally their social media pages are provided; Twitter and Facebook *Note that our very own Community Moderator Church is part of the i01 team, but due to his status of a moderator, cannot receive this award that his colleagues are, but do not forget that everyone not only on the forums here, but in the team in general is being awarded this as a group.
  2. Thanks everyone for waiting patiently for this month's Member of the Month to be announced. I understand it was an agonizing struggle waiting for this post to be made and the anticipation was literally not figuratively killing you but WHY SO SERIOUS? A6ENT of CHA0S is this month's Member of the Month for setting high quality examples in his posts and discussions. Good posting will get you noticed. CONGRATS to A6ENT of CHA0S on his achievement and have a great month being minus green!
  3. Hello everyone welcome back again to the Wrapup and thanks for keeping interest and encouraging these to keep being made. Let's do December!: Primary Announcement: December was a major month for us here on the site and something that really stuck out to me and should really be taken to consideration is this thread made by our Comms Department's Dog. Check out We Need To Appreciate. COMMUNITY EVENTS Out With A Bang Trilogy Event Parts 2 and 3: Modern Warfare and Halo 3 "Send me out... with a bang..." Don't know much about these Events myself but I'm sure they were spectacular. I mean you're talking about 2 titles that changed the way people played Xbox Live! These games revolutionized competitive gaming. Halo 3 MLG was a very big part of my time on Halo 3 and a lot of other people's as well because it got its own playlist! Modern Warfare and Halo 3 were both Pro Circuit games back in the day. Again, so disappointed I missed out.. The 343i.org 2013 Christmas Tree I'm putting this in the Community Events section because that's essentially what our Christmas Tree is. It is an Event in which our Community participates in on the site. I also think violet was a good color to highlight it with. Although it doesn't require us to get online and play together it requires us all to be on here and give the things we don't need, sometimes things we actually go out and buy specifically for this, to our fellow members. The Christmas Tree was started a year ago and always gets tons of gifts under it from our warm community here at 343iCF. I won't give a list of the names of members who provided gifts for this Christmas Tree simply because there is a long list and I don't want to type it. Maybe I'll edit in later? Anyway, all contributors to the Christmas Tree got this very prestigious site Award: - This would be the Helping Hand Award. Given to those who have given to the site. Thank you to everyone who donated to the 343i.org Christmas Tree, it would have been nothing without all of you. If you have any Community Event ideas post them here. FEATURED INTERVIEWS Bob - One of my favorite members on this forum. Bob was our first Site Moderator and is a generally interesting person. They say if you see him on the site and get to talk to him, you'll have good luck for the rest of your life. *Interviews have resumed. Preaacchh.*/hint FORGE Ok who remembers the Meet Your Maker Dominion Contest that concluded in December? I've got the results for you in case you missed them! In third place: by DUN3Z In second: by Xinshu And in first place, the winner of the Meet Your Maker Dominion Forge Contest is: by PA1NTS Featured Map: December Unquestionably the most interesting map of December, Duel-Wield Puzzlers by Juggacly, is a 2v2 puzzle map! I love puzzle maps! There are two teams of two and they have to navigate obstacles and help each other reach the finish of the map where they get to the area seen above with a Shmeef in it. This to me is a must download and play with some of your friends. Congratulations @Juggacly on having the Featured Map of December! GAMING NEWS Games Coming To Nintendo In 2014 TheCooliestOne of our News Group hit us with some awesome news about the upcoming games from Nintendo and they look so good that they make me want a Wii U. I didn't even get a Wii. For the list of games and their trailers, click the picture. New Creative Director for 343 Industries Some big news brought to us by adamj via TeamBeyond. Josh Holmes, former Creative Director of 343 Industries, has stepped down from his position and has been replaced by Tim Longo. The reason for the switch is unknown for now. Please visit adam's thread for more. For more Gaming News check out the latest on our Front Page. HOT TOPIC: December Only second to the Crazy Grunt's Riddle Challenge Round 6, came this thread in replies. Created by Member - , Who wants, is a topic about whether or not you wanted Hayabusa back in Halo 4 or whatever other armors you wanted. Apparently a lot of you had something to say on this matter. So congrats Echo CT on having the Hot Topic of December and everyone go visit and or revisit the thread! MEMBER OF THE MONTH December's Member of the Month never got their own spot on any previous Wrapups so I'm pleased to remind everyone of Sparky's electrifying achievement. Spark was a member who'd gotten a few Warnings but corrected himself, changed his ways, and showed his true color: pink. I've known Spark since he got here and he's a great member. Even though he's not the MoM anymore he still contributes to this community just as much as when he was. Congrats again Sparky! Announcement thread. MoM Post. NEW COMMUNITY MODERATOR Although not new now, Azaxx was promoted to Community Moderator back in early December. If you're on, chances are he is too and he is watching you. Azaxx is an ever-vigilant Moderator and is there if you need something. Revisit his thread! TOP 15: DECEMBER This is a section I would like to keep in the Wrapup starting now. I hope members get together and continue this tradition. The Top 15 list is composed of members who show the greatest contribution to the forum over the past month. If you have a problem with the picture then shut up and hold it forever. Now, here's our Top 15 for December: Sikslik7 Beckoningzebra1 Maestro the Stampede The Dumb Marine Silent Orbis D-38 Boss HaloGeek Brett Edward Kenway JXZAW Axilus Prime NOVA Shockgazm UNSC Spartan II onsokumaru Honorable mentions go to: Tucker Zandril and Elite FAREWELL As big and eventful as December was, not all events were cheerful. There was one very big event that occurred in December leaving almost every member in awe. Absolute Dog was a jokester from the start and was always looking for a way to get involved since he joined. He found a great love for this community instantaneously. One day he PMed Twam and asked if there was anything he could do to help and Twam told him yes, he could work alongside the one and only Spectral Jester and help moderate the site as a Community Moderator thus beginning his legend on the 343i Community Forums. And a legend he is. AD was not only a great Moderator but person in general. He had all the character, charisma, humor, and was stern but never strict when necessary. It was very easy to look up to a man like AD. He took this forum from the small isolated community it was and almost single handedly created all of its ties with its Affiliates such as HaloCustoms, ForgeCafe, THFE, and Certain Affinity. He was the bridge this site needed to help create a united Halo Community. Now the site has been left up to RedStarRocket and all of us to help keep it to his standards. It's impossible to measure the hours Absolute Dog has given to this site. We salute you AD and best of luck in future endeavors. RedStar, we're all here to help when you need it! Here are some last words Dog left for us on the site: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fhx-ZDIwu4w#t=0 Thank you all for taking the time to read this. Please stay tuned for a cumulative January Wrapup as well. Then we should be switching back to the weekly. This post has been promoted to an article

There was one very big event that occurred in December leaving almost every member in awe. [/color][/center] [center][color=#d3d3d3]Absolute Dog[/color][color=#ffffff] was a jokester from the start and was always looking for a way to get involved since he joined. He found a great love for this community instantaneously. One day he PMed [/color][color=#ff0000]Twam[/color][color=#ffffff] and asked if there was anything he could do to help and [/color][color=#ff0000]Twam[/color][color=#ffffff] told him yes, he could work alongside the one and only [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Spectral Jester[/color][color=#ffffff] and help moderate the site as a [/color][color=#0033ff]Community Moderator[/color][color=#ffffff] thus beginning his legend on the 343i Community Forums. And a legend he is.[/color][/center] [center][color=#d3d3d3]AD[/color][color=#ffffff] was not only a great [/color][color=#ffa500]Moderator[/color][color=#ffffff] but person in general. He had all the character, charisma, humor, and was stern but never strict when necessary. It was very easy to look up to a man like [/color][color=#d3d3d3]AD[/color][color=#ffffff]. He took this forum from the small isolated community it was and almost single handedly created all of its ties with its [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Affiliates[/color][color=#ffffff] such as [/color][b][color=#0033cc]HaloCustoms[/color][/b][color=#ffffff], [/color][b][color=#008000]ForgeCafe[/color][/b][color=#ffffff], [/color][color=#696969][b]THFE[/b][/color][color=#ffffff], and [/color][color=#d3d3d3][b]Certain Affinity[/b][/color][color=#ffffff]. He was the bridge this site needed to help create a united Halo Community. [/color][/center] [center][color=#ffffff]Now the site has been left up to [/color][color=#ffa500]RedStarRocket[/color][color=#ffffff] and all of us to help keep it to his standards. It's impossible to measure the hours [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Absolute Dog[/color][color=#ffffff] has given to this site. We salute you [/color][color=#d3d3d3]AD[/color][color=#ffffff] and best of luck in future endeavors. [/color][color=#ffa500]RedStar[/color][color=#ffffff], we're all here to help when you need it![/color][/center] [center][color=#ffffff]Here are some last words [/color][color=#d3d3d3]Dog[/color][color=#ffffff] left for us on the site:[/color][/center] [quote name="Absolute Dog" post="291860" timestamp="1387380492"] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]I truly appreciate all of the kind words and remembered moments. In reading the various posts made here I have reflected back on some of the highlighted moments and events that shaped this forum.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]My close friends here know who they are and we have talked. This is for all of you.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Thank You.............[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Some of you already know this, but it bears another mention. This forum, what we were in the beginning and have become, is not based on any one person. Where I genuinely take to heart all of thoughts you have shared, the site is a culmination of all of us. Many posts have spoken to what I have done or made possible and I see that as a reflection of what the past and current members have given in either inspiration, support, active participation and/or friendship. We did this together.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Please remember what the leaders of this forum have to do in order to manage our corner of the Halo universe. Spades summed it up the best, though it feels self serving to say so. Providing solid and consistent leadership can often be separate from your personal feelings. Only a handful know how far I went to support some members and ideals of this forum and the price paid for it. It may surprise you to know who and what they were, but it will remain private. In the end, give the leaders and moderators polite respect and work to continue to build what we have and not tear it apart. Have conversations not arguments. We can not control the direction Halo takes, but we can control how we act and interact around the game. This is a forum at it's core and by definition offers the format for pro and con discussions to take place...........that has to be understood and accepted.[/i][/font][/center] [center][font='comic sans ms'][i]Thanks to each and every one of you for all of the kind words and support over the years. This site and all of you are ......................[/i][/font][/center] [center]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSkK65hQIp8[/center] [/quote] [center][color=#ffff00][url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fhx-ZDIwu4w#t=0"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fhx-ZDIwu4w#t=0[/url][/color][/center] [center][color=rgb(255,255,255)]Thank you all for taking the time to read this. Please stay tuned for a cumulative January Wrapup as well. Then we should be switching back to the weekly.[/color][/center][/background][/font][/color]
