If you were a user on the [url=http://halo.bungie.net]previous version of Bungie.net[/url] and would like to adapt your old working habits, you've come to the right place. This guide will explain what has been added, changed, and removed from the site. It is currently a work in progress so please feel free to correct any inaccurate information and provide feedback on how this guide can be improved. I do apologize in advance if your eyes bleed from the walls of text. When the beta is over, I will incorporate images and video so this guide is easier to follow. Note: This is only 1 of 2 support guides. The [b]Bungie.NEXT Support 101[/b] guide has not been posted yet. The second guide will be geared toward users that are completely new to Bungie.net and did not use the old site (second guide will include website and Bungie game related FAQ as well as information on how to create an account, link/un-link authentication services, post on the forums, ect.). If you're interested in helping, feel free to send me a private message.

      Screw you guys. Too many of us want the old Bungie page back. At least get rid of the -blam!-ing hashtags. This site ain't no faggy social network.

      If only there were some sort of feature on the site that would allow me to save threads.

              [b]CHANGED:[/b] [quote][b]User search has been improved.[/b] The old search would require you to input at least 3 characters to return results (Exception: if a 1 character or 2 character username existed and was searched, it would display only that user). The new search will return results for a 1+ character search (you cannot perform a blank search or a search with just a space). The search will return the first 100 users that match the criteria, sorted by Unique ID. It will not display the total number of users that match the search criteria. User search will find Display Names and Unique IDs, but it will not find Aliases (previous display names or unique IDs). If you search for two words, results will only show Display Names and Unique IDs that contain both words. For example, let's say user ID Achronos had his display name set to Tom, searching for Tom Achronos would not bring up his profile. [b]Topics search has been improved.[/b] The old forum search allowed you to search in all public forums or a specific public forum, however, results would inaccurate, outdated, or nonexistent. The new Bungie.net doesn't have 6 public Bungie forums and 7 public Game forums, but rather just one forum with the integration of tags to filter content as well as different sorting options. Please see the Forum section for more information. A topics search can contain a maximum of 4 search terms. This search uses the Topic's title and tags to find relevant content. It will display up to 26 topics that match the search criteria, sorting by most recent topic (creation date). It will not display the total number of topics that match the search criteria. If multiple search terms are used, only topics that include all search terms will be displayed. Although searching for comments and replies isn't an option at this time, the topics search now display results of group topics that have been made visible to public. [b]Group search has been changed.[/b] The search terms you input look for matching criteria in the Group Name field (like the old website) as well as the Group Description and Group Tags (new). Searching groups by founder and location are no longer available. Ordering results by Group Name (Descending) Founder Name (Ascending/Descending), Location (Ascending/Descending), Member Count (Ascending/Descending), and Creation Date (Ascending) are no longer available. You can still search with 2 spaces for the effect of a blank search, which will return the total number of groups that exist on the website, but now only a maximum of 100 results are displayed, sorted by Group Name. A better option is to visit the Explore Groups page, where you can view an unlimited number of groups that match your search criteria (26 results per page). The Explore Groups page allows you to perform searches for groups as well (including a blank search). The benefit to using this page is the sorting and filtering options. You can filter groups created Today, This Week, This Month, This Year, or All Time. You can sort groups by Group Name (Ascending), Popularity, and Creation Date (Descending).[spoiler]I'm not exactly sure how the Popular sorting option works.[/spoiler][/quote] [b]REMOVED:[/b] [quote]News Search, Games Search, Support Search, Forums - Author Search, Halo 2 Player Search, Halo 2 Clan Search, Halo 3 Player Search, Halo 3 Files Search, Halo 3: ODST Player Search, Halo 3: ODST Files Search, Halo: Reach Player Search, and Halo: Reach Files Search have been removed from Bungie.net. You can still access a user's Recent Activity (post history) by visiting their profile page.

              [b]ADDED:[/b] [quote]Recent Activity is a new feature that displays links to topics you have created and topics you have replied to. Recent Likes is a new feature that displays links to topics you like as well as images, videos, and links you like. You have the option to hide your Recent Activity and Recent Likes from public view by visiting the Privacy section of your settings page. Your name has been separated into Display Name and Unique ID. Your display name may be changed at any time. Your Unique ID may be changed once every 7 days. When you change your name, your previous name is displayed as an Alias on your profile page. At this time, there is no way to remove aliases. Notifications have been added for Forum Replies, Forum Topics Liked, Group Acceptance, Group Join Requests, New Followers, New Messages, and Profile Settings Change. You can access your notifications by select the "Exclamation" icon on the navigation bar. You may enable/disable any of these notifications for your email, mobile device, and web (when viewing Bungie.net). Following users, groups, and tags has been added. The users that follow you, the groups you follow, and the tags you follow are displayed on your profile. You may follow 100 users and 100 groups. If you are a member of a group, you are also follower of that group. Please see the Forum section and Group section for more information. [/quote] [b]CHANGED:[/b] [quote]You can log on to Bungie.net with four online services now. In addition to the Microsoft account that Bungie has been supporting for years, Facebook, Google, and the Playstation Network have now been added. If you want to stop using your Microsoft account to access this site, visit your settings page and choose a different path. Once you have one login linked to your account, you can remove the ones you don’t want to keep. Profile backgrounds (themes) have been re-sized from 903x260 to 960x165. The preview for themes can now be selected with a drop-down, but it appears as a smaller version and not actually on your profile. Signatures have been changed to Mottos. The maximum character count has changed from 500 to 256 (legacy members had the signatures transferred over, even if character count was exceeded). Mottos may be cut off. All settings can now be accessed from one page. Blocked Users were not transferred over. The old site prevented a blocked user from sending you a private message. The improved feature, Muted Users, prevents them from have conversations with you and also hides their posts. [/quote] [b]REMOVED:[/b] [quote]Some avatars have been removed. Bungie Mobile is not available at this time, but will be available in the future. Saved Threads have been removed. Titles have been removed from profiles. In time, Bungie will be celebrating and decorating the long-standing members of the community. Your legacy will be honored. For now, you are anonymous crash test dummies; so rev those engines and aim for the wall. Last Forum Post (post history) and Last Active date have been removed from profiles, however, you may view Recent Activity if the user has their privacy set to public. The fields Real name, City, State, Postal Code, Country, Homepage URL, and Auto Responder (Auto/Manual) have been removed from profiles. Halo Game Settings (Namplates, Halo: Reach API, [url=http://halo.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=71225779]Sneakernet Avatars[/url]) have been removed.

              [b]CHANGED:[/b] [quote]There is no longer a page to visit for your Message Center; your messages are displayed as a drop-down when you select the Letter icon on the navigation bar. All of the individual messages from the old site were transferred over and grouped by user (conversation view). The subject lines were not transferred over. When you leave a conversation with one user, it will permanently delete your history with that user (only on your end). If messages are exchanged after that, it appears as a new conversation to you, but the other user sees it as a continued conversation because they didn't clear their history. When you leave a conversation with multiple users, a message is automatically sent from you that says [left conversation] and it will permanently delete your group conversation history (only on your end). At that point, those users can continue their group messaging, but you will no longer receive messages. If you start a new conversation with the same exact users, it opens a new window for them with a new conversation instead of continuing the same window (thus you can't re-join a group conversation window after leaving). If you attempt to message a user that has muted you, a message in red text says, "We're unable to send a message to this user(s)." If you message a muted user, that user can view the message, but cannot reply back; the user remains muted. Muting a user does not remove existing conversation history for you or the muted user. The web team will probably make changes (having the option to add a user to an existing conversation, ect.), but as of right now, that's how it works.

              [b]ADDED:[/b] [quote]Forum tags have implemented to help users filter the content that they want to see. The official forum tags are #Gaming, #Community, #Recruitment, #Gallery, #Feedback, #Help, #OffTopic, and #BnetBugs. Users are allowed to create their own forum tags. If you select follow on a forum tag, it will display in your list of tags so you may easily access it at a later time. You may search for up to 4 words at a time, but if you search multiple terms, it will only display topics that have all search terms included in the subject/tags. At this time, you cannot save multiple tags as one filter. Trending tags are displayed; you may also visit Explore Tags to see the most followed tags. Forum topics now use conversation threading. For more information, please see this [url=http://www.bungie.net/en-US/View/community/Forum/Post?id=10726816]topic[/url]. Sorting has been implemented so you may sort topics by Latest, Popular, or Debated. Latest displays topics with the most recent reply first. [spoiler]IN PROGRESS: I'm not exactly sure how Popular or Debated sorts topics. I think Debated sorts topics with the most replies to comments first.[/spoiler] Permalinks have been made easily accessible so you can share direct links with others. Filtering by creation date has also been implemented. You may filter topics created Today, This Week, This Month, This Year, or All Time. Selecting a link that takes you off-site will now give you a warning message that says, "Warning! You are exiting bungie.net and we don’t know what you are going to see here!!!". The link URL is provided. Liking and Disliking topics is now available. This helps determine where a topic should be displayed on the forum index when using the appropriate sorting option. Each post can now have one link URL, image URL, or YouTube video. Images and YouTube videos are embedded so they may be viewed without leaving Bungie.net. Each post now has a "Start Related Topic" button. This allows you to create a new topic based on a post you came across. A link to the post that inspired you to create the topic is provided. You no longer have to type markups as they are easily accessible while composing your thoughts. The spoiler tag is a new addition; it appears just like a quote box, however, you have to select the box to view the content. Also, if you have already have content typed, you may simply highlight the content and select the bold, italic, underline, quote, and/or spoiler button to apply the markup. The link button will put the markup at the place you select and the named link button will put the markup at the end of your content. HTTPS links and named links now work properly. [/quote] [b]CHANGED:[/b] [quote]All bans were removed because the rules have changed and better tools are available to users. Bans by the Bungie.net moderators will now apply to both public topics and private group topics. Topics by muted users are hidden by default and can't be permanently un-hidden unless you un-mute the user. If you hide a topic, it appears collapsed with a link that says, "+ Hidden Post." This link lets you show/hide the topic temporarily. You may permanently un-hide a topic (that you hid manually) by first selecting Hidden Post to reveal the topic and then selecting the hide post button (this is a bug: it should say un-hide post). If you attempt to hide your own topic, you receive an error message that says, "Looks like you're trying to ignore yourself. While that's very postmodern of you, we don't allow that kind of thing here. Go talk to Ezra Furman if you wanna be ignored." Note that muted users may still view your topics. Posts by muted users are hidden by default and can't be permanently un-hidden unless you un-mute the user. If you view a topic that has a post by a muted user, there is a reveal button at the top that says, "Some replies have been hidden: show all posts." This link lets you toggle hidden posts on/off temporarily. The same message appears if you have manually hidden a post in the topic. You may permanently un-hide a post (that you hid manually) by first selecting show all posts and then selecting show on that post. Note that muted users may still view your posts. The public forums (Bungie Universe, Bungie.net Community, Off Topic: The Flood, The Gallery, The News, The Classifieds, Crimson, Halo: Reach, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 3, Halo 2, Halo 1 & 2 for PC, Halo: Combat Evolved) have all been combined into one forum. The report feature has been changed and renamed to hide. On the old site, you would select report and OK to confirm. Now, when you select hide, you are prompted to select an option. These options include No Reason Stated, Adult Content, Spoilers, Threats, and Exposing Personal Information. If these options do not describe the reason you are hiding the post, there's a comment box where you can provide more information. The security roles for forums have changed. The previous security roles (NonMember, Member, Forum Ninja, Master Forum Ninja, Web Tester, Bungie.net Admin, Administrator) have been replaced with NonMember, Member, Ninja, and Bungie. Bungie.net moderators have a badge displayed next to their name that says Ninja. Employees have a badge displayed next to their name that says Bungie. The quoting markup feature still exists, but the new forum structure and notification system might convince you to post differently. When a topic is made, you have the option to "comment" on it. Unlike the old site, selecting "reply" to any comment besides the original post will start a threaded conversation. If you reply to a reply, that topic become a debated discussion and you may want to start a related topic at that time. The concept of this idea is to keep posts on-topic; it helps prevent side conversations from affecting/interfering with the main discussion. Replies to comments appear collapsed by default. The benefit to using replies is that they are built into the notification system so you can stay up to date on your debates. The more information box (now semi-transparent hovering over) is now accessed by selecting the Display Name or avatar of a user. It includes the user's Display Name, Unique ID, Motto (formerly Signature), number of followers, and groups (link). Also, there are quick-links provided to easily message, follow/unfollow, and/or mute/unmute the user. The user's gamertag, homepage URL, last forum post date, and link to post history are no longer displayed. The hot topic symbol has been replaced with four symbols (shield with septagon symbol). If the shield is half gray/blue and half white, the topic is popular and debated (in which there are replies to comments). If the shield is all gray/blue, the topic is popular. If the shield is gold, a Bungie employee has posted in that topic. The time stamp of your post is now displayed at the top right. If you edit your post, the original time stamp is replaced with the edited time stamp. [/quote] [b]REMOVED:[/b] [quote]Forum titles and title bars have been removed. In time, Bungie will be celebrating and decorating the long-standing members of the community. Your legacy will be honored. For now, you are anonymous crash test dummies; so rev those engines and aim for the wall. Pinned topics (also known as stickies and announcements) have been removed from the forum index. Topics are no longer pinned, locked, and archived. The preview option for posts has been removed. Colored text for moderators and employees has been removed.

              [quote][b]POST IN PROGRESS... Temp Side Notes //[/b] Administrators cannot create public topics when admin only is checked. Admins and founders cannot delete comments or replies to topics (public or private). Group visible publicly means whether or not group Activity is shown. Announcements are shown depending on whether thread is public or private. Admins and founders can edit and delete OP of both private and public topics. Changing membership from requires approval to open/closed does not affect members in pending queue. Members cannot leave group from group page. When a founder leaves, the Administrator that first joined the group is promoted to Founder. If no Administrators are assigned, the Member that first joined the group is promoted to Founder. A group is deleted if all members leave. If a group is deleted, it does not appear under deleted groups for the last member that left or for anyone following the group at time of deletion. A group that was deleted can be re-made with the same name.[/quote] [b]ADDED:[/b] [quote]From your profile, you are able to view pending groups and deleted groups. You may also remove yourself from a pending group. In addition to the open and requires approval membership options, there is now an option to close the group so members can't even get into the pending queue. Group names can be edited. Groups may be disabled from public view. Group members now have the option to create a new topic that is visible to the public or just group members. There is a settings option to make it so only group Administrators can make public forum topics in the group. There is also a setting to make posts public by default; this setting only selects new topics to be available to public. You still have the option to create a new private topic and the visibility of existing topics are not affected by this setting. Each group now has an avatar that appears on the group page and in group searches. Groups may now be associated with tags. Following groups is now an option. You do not have to be a member of a group to follow it. If you are a member of a group, you are also a follower of that group. Following a group allows you to see updates via the [url=http://www.bungie.net/en-US/View/community/mycommunity/feed]Activity Feed[/url]. You may follow a maximum of 100 groups. [/quote] [b]CHANGED:[/b] [quote]You can now only be a member of 10 groups, as opposed to 25 like the old website. Legacy members of this site might belong to more groups than 10. As soon as they want to join new groups, they’ll have to drop below the threshold. Group themes now only have one background image at 960x164. The old group home header was 631x203. The old group home sidebar image was 256x207. The old group forum header was 902x80. Group news has been changed to Announcements, which are displayed on the homepage. When you create a new forum topic, you have the option to put a quick-link in the Announcements section. Security roles for groups have changed. The old site allowed you to have up to 15 group security roles (3 system roles, 12 custom roles). The new site only has 4 group security roles (4 system roles, 0 custom roles), which are NonMember, Member, Administrator, and Founder.

Group description was transferred from old site. The Group History Viewer has been replaced with Group Activity, which is now visible to the public. Group activity displays new members, new topics created, and new likes. Records of members rejected from the queue, members banned, members kicked, members that leave, and changes to group settings are no longer visible. [/quote] [b]REMOVED:[/b] [quote]The Security Role Editor feature has been removed. Submit News, Approve News, Post News Directly, Edit News, Moderate Forum, Edit Other's Posts, Create Resource Entries, and Edit Resource Entries are group permissions that have been removed. Quick Linkname, Forum Thread Limit, Group HQ City, Group HQ State or Province, Group HQ Country, and Group HQ Postal/Zip Code have been removed from the group settings. Member search has been removed. News, Articles, Group FAQs, Member Contact Info, and Group Links have been removed. The membership type is no longer displayed.
