Fear the impending flood

No, not the parasitic organism hellbent on galactic destruction, nor even it's far worse counterpart the off-topic forum. What you must fear is the incoming flood-tide of humanity that will be swarming to this website after Bungie announces Destiny, which I believe will probably be at the VGAs. You thought the darkness was horror? Who among us remembers the announcement of Halo 3 or Halo Reach? Was not the sudden influx of ignorant members far worse than this present darkness? All false eloquence aside, how do you guys feel about the fact that there will soon be far more new members than veteran ones?

  • I'm afraid of the fact that no one will know how to use [url] tags. It says right below, but no one knows about it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DeeJ And, the first time a newcomer is slammed for not knowing what the veterans know will likely be the last time they make an effort.[/quote]I got that when I joined, it's very unwelcoming. Regardless of the idiots I stayed and learned from their mistakes.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DeeJ I would challenge each of you to think about what we could do to be a place where gamers are welcomed to have a seat and enjoy the feast.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] worldwidespace [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ChorrizoTapatio I think the new members will be awesome. We just need to mold their minds to do our bidding..[/quote] I shall do thy bidding master! OT: Does that count me? But aside from that, we should want to keep this forum the same even with the new members, which means brainwashing!!! [/quote] [i]"What will you have you have your arbiter do?"[/i] We should speak in cryptic halo talk when hypnotising them.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ABotelho So what are we gonna do for initiation?[/quote] Each new member must do the marty dance, then take a shot of pickle juice form ling-ling's jar. Maybe just the dancing part.

  • I don't think the influx will be all that big till after the game is released.

  • I am looking forward to new members as well. Hopefully the title system isn't removed when Bungie.next comes around.

  • I'm all for some new members. Everybody knows whats it's like to be the new kid at school, or the new guy on the job. It sucks. Hopefully everybody treats anyone new like they would want to be treated. It's nice to hear about a bigger clubhouse as well. I like the optimism about how big their game can potentially be, and what kind of a draw it will be for new users. Good times ahead!

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] antony X1000 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] xXIHAYD0IXx It'll be interesting to get some new blood in, but what I am not looking forward to is all the threads that are bound to be made about the exact same thing.[/quote]You're in the community forum, that happens all the time anyway. I see what you mean, but getting some new members on the site far out weighs the repeat threads we will see IMO.[/quote] QFT I come on these forums once a week or so, usually to post late in a flame or septagon thread, because the activity's so minimal right now any thread worth posting in is getting posts from everybody. Most other threads end up locked anyway. New members are needed if Bungie's community is going to evolve beyond the Halo era of 2000-2010's, ready for the next decade. Hopefully Bungie.next is going to be the place to be for gamers of the next console cycle. We're just the veterans and early-birds.

  • This website has only gotten more boring if anything since Bungie "went dark". If you only post on the community forum, I doubt you have much to fear. The Destiny forum and Flood is where they will go.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] flamedude All that will happen is this; the new Destiny forum and Flood forums go utterly ballistic and us old fuddy-duddies wade in for a bit but also retreat back here or to the Universe. Happens with every new bungie game. It's a time-honored tradition.[/quote] You made my night
