  7. Hello all thanks for clicking the Wrapup, let's get into it!: Primary Announcement: January 23rd was my 2 year joinday! Secondary Announcement Which is Not as Important as Primary: If you're missing any site Awards, RedStar has given you the chance to request them in our new Missing Awards Thread.

Winter Conclusion Forum Battle http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sH_AcL9St8o It was another one of our whacky ninja Co-head of Promotions and Events' Ninja vs Forum battles and the comments only say good things! Judging from previous comments I think these are going to continue as they are always successful in entertaining. Everyone who attends Community Events gets the Gamer Award: If you have any Community Event ideas post them here. FEATURED INTERVIEWS Zelda - Quite possibly the nicest person on the forum. Welcoming of all unless you have an unruly attitude and was quite pleasant in our interview. *I've resumed interviews but am waiting on interviewees...* FORGE THFE Submission Forums Move to HaloCustoms It's official now, THFE has moved their map submission forums to our Affiliate site, HaloCustoms. Psychoduck has made it clear that it's been great being hosted here but realized that although our Halo Community is excellent, our Forge aspect is not as strong whereas HaloCustoms is stronger in that area. Along with that, he helped build HaloCustoms and is on Staff there so really it only makes sense. We're not saying goodbye to our THFE Affiliates for good, we love Psychoduck and Able SirThomas and their crew all the same. And we'll be working together again in the future. Featured Map: January Beer Pong Turbtastic is not new to being a Featured Mapmaper in the Wrapups. Known for his MarioKart 64 track remakes, he recently made this fun looking minigame called Beer Pong. The objective is to run your Mongoose through the shields and into the "cups" to eliminate them. First team to hit all the cups wins! Who doesn't like a good game of pong? Video provided by 0LAH.

Siri-like Search Engine 'Cortana' Coming This Fall Like a Halo fan's dream come true, Microsoft intends to bring a voice controlled Cortana search engine to us for the Bing App owned by Microsoft. And yes, Jen Taylor will be the voice of Cortana. Beckoningzebra gives you the details, just click above. For more Gaming News check out the latest on our Front Page. HOT TOPIC: January Conspiracy Among our Staff- Part 2! Easily the hottest topic of January. In 2 days the thread got 80 replies from Staff and Members alike gaining it the HOT tag almost instantly. As a part 2 to Yoshi's original Conspiracy thread, this one rekindled the members' growing suspicions about the Staff and created mass hysteria even getting @343iBot involved. And now the creator of the thread, Edward Kenway, is our new MoM?? Funny how things work out eh members? Muahahahahaha MEMBER OF THE MONTH: January Our January Member of the Month was none other than our crazy forum ninja, onsokumaru. Since he joined, onsokumaru showed great attitude and enthusiasm for this site and introduced Events that members enjoy today. His cartoons might be a little weird and I have no idea where he gets them from but don't be fooled, this guy is serious when it comes to his job of keeping you guys entertained with Community Events! Don't worry Edward you'll have your nice minus green section of the Wrapup all to yourself next week. Announcement thread. MoM Post. NEW STAFF New year, new fresh Staff. RedStar took it upon himself to get some positions filled and these excellent members have proven themselves worthy. With that I'd like to congratulate these members once again: In Communications we have: Dog and Bnus! New to our News Group is: Beckoningzebra1! And filling in the position of Promotions and Events are: D-38 Boss and onsokumaru! Give it up to these guys again they really deserved it and we hope to see more out of them and the other members of the site this year. TOP 15: January I am certainly glad this is still continuing. The Top 15 List is a special honor awarded to those who make the site a better place each month. Everyone on the list is chosen unbiasedly by our Site Mod RedStarRocket, Comms Staff Member Bnus, News Group Member Beckoningzebra1, Dedicated Member Zaguroth, and Legendary Member Total Mayh3m/Anakin Skywalker/Qui Gon Jin/Darth Mayh3m. Now here's our Top 15 January: Magical Love Sparky Edward Kenway Tucker Yang Xiao Long lilsilmarillion Yoshi1176 Zelda Vitamin PWN The Stig Unease P34nut Silent Orbis Spyro Maestro the Stampede Bashful Brute Honorable Mentions go to: UNSC Spartan II and SNIPEM101 USF ELECTION It's that time of year again.

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

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.

  12. A group of three including myself have come up with this month's Top 15 Members. The following members have been very dedicated, have good behavior and most importantly don't 'aim' to be on this list, they do stuff for others out of kindness. This list will not be numbered, as all are equally deserving of this special placing. Now to the list, these candidates are our Septembers top 15! The Director Azaxx GermanShepherdD Archangel Tyrael Absolute Dog Choot 'em Zaguroth Quantum CandiBunni Sykowolf Total Mayh3m Bullet DoctorB77 Mr.Biggles Congratulations to these people, well deserved. Look forward to next month's picking!
  13. It may not be July still in some of your countries but it's early in the evening in mine so we're going to count this as July. As you all know, the Top 15 List is something that has been coming out every two months because we get lazy and have to pull people together and compile lists and reasons why and all that. I won't get into it but just know that all of you are fantastic members. This list will not be ordered because in the Top 15, everyone in that group is number 1. And it is as follows: Absolute Dog CandiBunni A.K.A Ms. Mystic Archangel Tyrael Undead Smokin Shadowz ZB-85 Quantum Choot 'em DoctorB77 Bullet One adamj004 Insignia King Brony II SωєaмуBagєℓs So congrats to you all! You all showed how dedicated, nice, and (to describe everything in one word) great you are! Also thank you to the committee who helped make this list, job well done. I think we did this one right
