Bungie.net strategy guide... hints, tricks, and more!!!

If you are reading this you are now a part of the Bungie community, welcome! Bungie.net is the home for all things Bungie and the official gathering place for the community. Before we begin our journey into the bold new world, lets begin with a pressing issue: [quote]Bungie is no longer managing the Halo Universe. While our Halo-related forums and stats remain available, be advised that "official" answers and support about the Halo Universe (past, present, or future) are not.[/quote] Bungie is no longer making Halo, Halo is now being made and solely produced by 343i industries: [url=http://forums.halowaypoint.com//] here are their forums[/url]. The community forum is ot the appropriate place to discuss Halo related threads. Threads about Halo 4 belong in the Flood forum and threads about the story related aspect of Halo and previous, Bungie games, belong in the universe forum. Bungie.net currently also features a variety of Halo related forums underneath the forums tab for more discussion. Now that we have covered the past, lets look onward for the future: forums Community forum: That is the forum you are currently on. The community forum is a gathering place for the Bungie community where we discuss issues regarding the site, community events, and (currently) we discuss about Bungie's upcomming game Destiny. The Flood: The Flood forum is the off-topic forum of Bungie.net. The Flood is for a wide variety of threads not appropriate for the other forums. But, all forum rules still apply. The Gallery: The Gallery lets you express your artist side as you post your Bungie related works of art. If you are feeling creative and have some cool drawings, music, or videos about Bungie's games, feel free to stop by. The Universe forum: The universe forum is for discussing all previous Bungie games. It is like a total codex of knowledge at your fingertips to flip through and dive further into the universes Bungie has cultivated for 20 years. The other forums in the fourms tab offer a wide assortment of offerings from the official Crimson forums to the Halo forums. Take a peek and enjoy the ride. Posting advice: Bungie.net is a fun place for everyone to get together and have a good time. Here are some tips I recommend to new users: - [b]read the rules:[/b] learn what is acceptable and try to follow them. You are a lot less likely to get banned/warned if you familiarize yourself with Bungie.net policies. -[b]Don't be a jerk:[/b] Perhaps the most important advice I can give you. No one likes a jerk and no one likes to be treated like a jerk. -[b]If in doubt, don't post it:[/b]If you want to post something you think might break the rules, my advice is to not post it at all. You risk getting warned or at worst being banned. -[b]Groups:[/b] I recommend to fully enjoy your Bungie.net experience you join groups. Groups offer you a place to enhance your experience and connect with people with similar interests.You and a few friends can get together and make a group where you can forums your own mini community. -[b]community carnage[/b] If you want to make some friends and play some classic Bungie games, look for the community carnages which are posted on the community forum. It is a great way to meet people and make friends within the community. -[b]Have fun:[/b] These forums are a fun place for everyone to get together, it is important to try and have a positive attitude. Ninjas: The ninjas of Bungie.net enforce the law of the land. They are here to help you and make sure this site runs smoothly. If you have any questions, PM them: [url=http://www.bungie.net/Account/Profile.aspx?memberID=77135] link[/url] Moderators have Salmon text and the title Forum ninja or Master forum ninja. Anyone else claiming to be a mod that does not have these features for their account is most likely not one. Be warned. Forum titles: As of now Bungie.net hosts a variety of forum titles, the official thread to discuss this further is here and only here: [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=15804986] Link[/url]. My advice is to not worry about them too much, they are just for fun. Helpful users: Here contains a list of helpful users you can PM if you have a question. They have been on Bungie.net for some time and can give you advice. For offical information, contact a moderator/employee: [url=http://www.bungie.net/Account/Profile.aspx?postID=76740300&act=msg] DarkestSeptagon[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Account/Profile.aspx?postID=76740316&act=msg] Viron[/url] I will keep updating this thread as the site gets updated and we exit darkness. I am glad you have decided to be part of the Bungie community and I hope you are here to stay for what is coming next. This is my advice to you as a forum user here for several years, I am not the official voice of Bungie.net but humbly offer my advice and information about Bungie.net. If anyone else has any advice they would like to give for new users or users who want to introduce themselves please post in this thread. Be Brave [Edited on 01.07.2013 12:08 PM PST]

  • It's always good to try to be helpful. We should recognize that. We should also recognize when people's actions don't hurt anyone or anything, like this thread. But this is all in the FAQ right at the top of the page, or extremely obvious (we know no one likes a jerk, if you're being a jerk you're not trying to get people to like you). There's really no point having a thread about it. But it's not like it's hurting anything, either.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] OMARRCHR [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Nick Saban This will be nice for new users. Maybe if we put a pinned one up in each forum? I mean can we guarantee that they will visit this forum to look at this?[/quote] The problem is not with the forums, but with the new users not looking at the pinned threads. If anything, a link to this thread should be sent through an automatic PM to new users.[/quote] Haha, no.

  • From what I have seen over the years, there will be plenty of newbies skip right through the stickied rules and guides and post their questions anyways. This is the perfect time to assassinate them with your BNet wisdom. Having a thread full of useful copy pasta is always a good idea considering most of the questions are generally the same stuff.

  • "Titlebars don't matter". Add that to the OP for the titles part. Because, they really don't matter. Everyone not a ninja or higher has the same permissions. [Edited on 01.07.2013 9:46 AM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Coxx153 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] commander tempu OP i have to say when i joined seeing this would have made it much easier. Not to say the information was not here it just needed to be localized. Biggest Problem i see with new B.net goers is where to post topics. Took me a year to properly figure out everything. Two days to properly post. Its best if people take the time to read it does help rather than being told its in the wrong forum. Just simple observation over the years i hope others agree. [/quote] Thing is, they probably couldn't find this thread if they were in your situation.[/quote] It still helps get some in the right direction which is the goal. I am sure it will hopefully catch some new member's eyes and hopefully they learn more about Bungie.net and can ask other users about it.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Achilles1108 I forgot. Kids today do not have thick enough skins to get through everyday life. My bad. Carry on. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] spartain ken 15 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Achilles1108 What the hell happened to throwing the people to the wolves and letting them figure their own way? What is with all of the guides? I swear you people would have been ripped to shreds back in the Zanzibar days.[/quote] Getting ripped to shreds does not make for a good first impression nor provides new users with the willingness to want to come back. I hope that we can be seen as a community that is not hostile and welcoming. Besides, with a little education and help from us, there will be a lot less problems from new people as they interact with old school members. [/quote][/quote] There is absolutely nothing wrong with trying to help people out and attempting to get them off to a good start. I'm glad Ken did this and I hope that new members can use this to help themselves out.
