Destiny Member Memorial Wall

[b][u]NOTICE:[/u][/b] I am not claiming that anybody here has done anything to deserve any recognition whatsoever. This is merely a fun idea. The names of active users could be generated by post history for the past year. Every post has a time stamp (look at the bottom of your post) so I imagine compiling a list would not be that hard for Bungie to do. I posted almost an identical post to this in a thread, but I felt it bears it's own thread. The basic idea was not mine, although I cannot recall who thought of it first. In essence, the idea would be to create a Vietnam Memorial-style wall with references to all the members here on B.net who stayed active throughout the darkness. The names would go something like the following: Brig Gen Foman Maj Burrito SSgt Mythical Wolf Brig Gen Duardo Col Evilcam Gen Achronos Etc. Granted, there would be several thousand names on it, but that honestly is not all that many if they are packed front and back on a wall. Ranks could be determined based on trust rating and title prefixes. (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = PVT Honorable (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = Cpl Veteran (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = SSgt Noble (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = MSgt Senior (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = MGySgt Elder (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = SgtMaj Intrepid (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = 1st Lt Fabled (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = Capt Exalted (Heroic, Legendary, Mythic) Member = Maj Forum Ninja = Col Master Forum Ninja = Brig Gen Bungie Employee = Lt Gen Superuser = Gen (All of these are legitimate Marine Corps ranks, but they could just as well be fictional if that was somehow preferable) EDIT-Credit goes to [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=74990525&postRepeater1-p=1]DE4THINC4RN4TE[/url] and [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=74987355&postRepeater1-p=1]MaxRealflugel[/url] for the basic idea.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Chaozhound Think of the time and effort someone at Bungie would have to go through to sort through to find members who remained active then to insert them somewhere into their game. [/quote]While I don't know this for a fact and no Bungie Member has commented on the feasibility of the matter, I would imagine that a list could be compiled automatically based on the timestamps on the posts. So, for example, any user with more than 100 posts in the last year that also was not permabanned for something (avoid the spammers getting recognized) would get their name in an algorithm that generates the wall.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CTN 0452 9 Something along the lines of an obelisk to those who survived the darkness.[/quote]I would be equally okay with this idea. As for the names not seeming real, that is why it would be somewhere out of the way where you could only find it if you looked for it.

    This would be pretty cool if they could fit something like this into the game, but I think that it would be difficult to fit thousands of names somewhere readable. Also, most of our names don't lend themselves to memorial walls, since they don't look or sound like real names. I also feel bad for whoever gets left off of the wall. I think it might be better if they just had some small tribute to the community at large, it would be more concise and nobody would be forgotten. Something along the lines of an obelisk to those who survived the darkness.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] x Foman123 x Gamers are humorous. As a culture, we are always feeling entitled to special treatment if we were "there" (wherever "there" may be) before someone else. Can you imagine how silly it would sound if Apple fans thought that people who owned Apple products before the iPhone deserve some kind of special iPad or their names engraved on the back or something? In all honesty, we sound like bratty hipsters asking for things like this. Maybe we should come to this site because we have fun talking with other community members, not because we're hoping for a reward later.[/quote]Does nobody read my OP? What has this world come to. We do not deserve anything. I am not claiming we do. This was merely an idea for an easter egg. If you happen to dislike the idea, okay, but please to not make me out to be some entitled brat.
