Where Did All The New Guys Come From?

Bear with me here. When the new hotness struck, we were overcome with thousands of new guys, One question has always bothered me, where did they come from? Was there advertising somewhere? Did I miss some big parade on TV? Did a hole open up in the fabric of space-time? Where did they come from? They weren't here before the hotness, why after?

  • Well, in theory, i am a new guy to the forums. but i just joined because they made marathon. Besides, i didn't join to discuss halo 2, or just after halo was released. sigh...

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Desolation I think its the fact that so many people came to this site before the new hotness, but didnt even know there were forums or anything (I didnt know). When the new hotness launched, navigating on this site became soooooo much easier, so all the people that used to come here (but werent members) finally saw that there were foums and that they could become a member. [/quote] That's how I joined...ah the good old days of Truth and Reconciliation...the purple and black...Those were good times. Except I wasn't a member.

  • Fine, i've been here since May (as you can tell), and before that i've gone to bungie.net occasionally to read the updates and others' posts. All these new guys keep asking the same thing.

  • I knew he had the second account, I'm just not getting what that has to do with blackmailing. On second thought, I probably don't want to know. [Edited on 9/4/2004 6:45:46 PM]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Josher 35 Hey haven't seen you around for a little while Shai.[/quote] I started college, and I've been a little busy. The amount of time I'll be online will be rather inconsistant from now on, though... But I'll pop in and out of the forums when I can, though.

I'm actually a bit happy that it was done, it makes my name unique. No one else in the world has a name like mine. This way, I can use my name in every online game that I have without having to worry about someone stealing it.

  • You've got to remember.... there's been 5 million copies of the game (Halo) sold... i think you've got off quite well with only "a thousand" new members as someone said earlier ;) Just wait until the mass TV Halo 2 advertising campaign starts :)

  • [color=red]We were all newbies at one time. Yeah it might be the time when HAL0 came out as the launch title of XB0X that we signed up on but oh well. Newbies is a fact of life.[/color][color=blue] You obviously think that HAL0 will last forever do you?[/color]

  • Are we sure that a comet isn't overhead? Maybe the huge influx of people asking about bees and looking for information on a Halo movie is due to the beginning of a dark period. Who knows, maybe The Deciever will march over the next hill with his army of zombies chanting "im da best sniper in da wurld!" and "OMG WTF HALO RULZ ALL way better then marathon!!!" I am new, (although I have been playing Bungie games for a while now) but even I tire of walking into The Underground, and upon reading the posts, becoming confused as to whether I am in New Mombassa or The Flood.
