Bungie Community Wednesdays 2

Tonight's the night for witches and monsters to roam the streets, a night for candies and treats. So community, trick or treat? Happy Halloween everyone, and welcome to week 2 of Bungie Community Wednesdays! Last week started out with some negative feedback from a few members and I was discouraged, I admit. But, for the most part everyone else enjoyed it and some even participated which made everyone here very happy. It doesn't matter to me how many people disliked it, if they don't like these then they don't have to read them. What matters to me are the community members that do enjoy these Wednesday programs. This is because we make these for you, the community. It isn't about getting popular like some of you may think, it's about connecting and entertaining you all. So as long as we're doing that, we'll press on! Now, let's begin. [b][u]Thread spotlights[/b][/u]: This week there were two threads that interested me. One was because it reminded me of the Halloween spirit, and the other because I found it to be pretty funny. The first thread of the week was [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=75510164]Frankenmember[/url]. It didn't get many responses but I think it should have. It was an interesting concept for a thread and I think it goes well with this week's Community Wednesday because it is Halloween, after all. Props to you, John McGhee 1975. The second thread was just pretty funny, and I'm sure many of you saw [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=75563274]"Can I apply to be a janitor at Bungie HQ?"[/url]. It was an honest attempt for ShadedSpartan17 to try and use his amazing cleaning skills to help Bungie in their quest for world domination. Maybe someday, ShadedSpartan17. Maybe someday. [b][u]Chapter Spotlight[/b][/u]: This week we went to The Classifieds once again to bring you a potential group for you join today. Straight from their [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=75542776]ad[/url], we give you [url=http://www.bungie.net/fanclub/tgl123/Group/GroupHome.aspx]The Game Lounge[/url]. I could sit here and tell you what it's all about in there but it wouldn't be very accurate, would it? So here to tell you all about TGL I give you, A Lemur Monkey. [quote]What we have to offer: We offer many things, including but not limited to Game Nights, Contests, Game Discussion, and a friendly community. Why it was established: I established this group because I was tired of not being able to find a group for me to discuss any game I wanted to discuss. So I figured, why don't I make one? So I did, I came up with the idea of a group that will discuss any game we please, a group that allows its members to set up contests or game nights of their own, a group with mature members, and a group where people can make friends. Why users would enjoy the group: As I said countless times before, we have a very mature community, and we are dedicated to keeping it that way. We also have many events going on at one time. There is almost always a contest or a game night going on. And of course, there are tons of friends to be made. <3 Lemur[/quote] Like what you're seeing? Join today! [b][u]Community Joes announcement[/b][/u]: For those who aren't familiar with the Community Joes, they are a fine group in are community who interview members, who are selected through a voting process, so that the community can understand a little more about them. I am happy to announce that the Joes have began voting again! So if you would like to take part of the voting process and select the member that will be interviewed, [url=http://www.bungie.net/fanclub/joes/Group/GroupHome.aspx]join up and vote today![/url] [b][u]Community Reflection[/b][/u]: This week we selected a member in our community, who has been here for quite some time, to share with us about his time here with the community. He's half dog, half man, half goat (or at least I think he is). Take it away, dmg!

  • [quote]What is your favorite memory from b.net?[/quote]Entering the All Star contests and winning. [quote]Is there anything you are hoping to accomplish here on b.net?[/quote]Not really.

  • [b]What is your favorite memory from b.net?[/b] ODST hype. Curiosity creates the most interesting threads. [b]Is there anything you are hoping to accomplish here on b.net?[/b] I'm hoping to set an example for new members, and stay a strong member of the community. [b]What are you being for Halloween and will you post a picture?[/b] Jerry Seinfeld in a puffy shirt, it's pretty ridiculous :) [b]What are you hoping to see in bungie.next?[/b] More reason to interact with each other. I'm seeing factions as a large part of Bungie.next. [b]Do you think you could take on Jerome?[/b] From what I hear, I would have a better chance beating Halo 2 on Legendary, blindfolded. [b]How would you rate yourself as a member (1 being horrible 10 being amazing)?[/b] 7. Smarter than the average bear.

  • 1. My favourite memory of B.net was joining my first private group. It's since been disbanded, but it was great to feel part of a little niche on B.net. 2. I want to be reasonably well-recognized (for good reasons, of course) and respected. 3. Nothing, unfortunately. I've got things to do tonight that don't include dressing up. 4. I'd personally like to see a messaging system similar to the mobile app, where a history of the messages is kept and can all be viewed simultaneously. 5. Nope, keep up the good work! 6. Not at all. I'd like to try and keep my face intact. 7. I'd rate myself a 7. I feel there are things I can do improve, but feel overall I'm a decent member.

  • Still a great read! [quote]What is your favorite memory from b.net?[/quote]The few minutes that Bungie was giving out early Reach Beta codes were hilarious! I don't think there has ever been that kind of hysteria here before and I remember being so excited that I got one. [quote]Is there anything you are hoping to accomplish here on b.net?[/quote]From what I said earlier today: "My ultimate goal here is to get to that point where someone sees my name and thinks 'Hey, I know him. Let's see what he has to say.' Will that ever happen? Most likely not but I'm happy to have picked up that kind of attitude toward several people here." [quote]What are you being for Halloween and will you post a picture?[/quote]An assassin from the 18th century running around in New England. I don't do Halloween so new games will consume my night. [quote]What are you hoping to see in bungie.next?[/quote]Me. [quote]Is there anything you would like to see in our next Community Wedneaday?[/quote]Pictures of people costumes! [quote]Do you think you could take on Jerome?[/quote]Our names are almost identical so I think it'd be about even but I'd probably let him win because it would ruin the legacy. [quote]How would you rate yourself as a member (1 being horrible 10 being amazing)?[/quote]I don't think I can answer that. This is a question someone must answer for me because I am extremely bias.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ChorrizoTapatio What is your favorite memory from b.net?[/quote] The Pentathlon. Man, those are awesome. [quote]Is there anything you are hoping to accomplish here on b.net?[/quote] First '09 Mythic, get! [quote]What are you being for Halloween and will you post a picture?[/quote] Too busy writing a paper to do anything for Halloween. [quote]What are you hoping to see in bungie.next?[/quote] An outbox, so I can remember all the stupid things I've sent over the years. [quote]Is there anything you would like to see in our next Community Wedneaday?[/quote] Proper spelling of the word Wednesday. [quote]Do you think you could take on Jerome?[/quote] If he had both hands and feet tied up, a gag in his mouth, and a blindfold on, I think I could take him. [quote]How would you rate yourself as a member (1 being horrible 10 being amazing)?[/quote] 8.7 Great read, I'd read again. [Edited on 10.31.2012 10:50 AM PDT]
