"DUST AND ECHOES
Almost nine years ago, stats and files from our previous franchise, Halo, stopped getting updated on Bungie.net. Since then, all stats, files, and other data from Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach have lived on in remembrance at halo.bungie.net. 

On February 9, the halo.bungie.net website will be taken offline permanently. Everyone is welcome to save their stats and files, however they can, if they'd like to save anything. Please keep in mind that our News articles, Forums, and Groups were imported into the current version of Bungie.net back in 2013.

Additionally, personal custom Halo avatars that are currently used on Bungie.net will be removed on February 9 due to its functionality living on halo.bungie.net. We are exploring options to bring those back in some capacity, but we recommend saving them to your computer in the meantime."

Shame, the community gallery is going too.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.

If they waited just one more month, it would be 13 full years for me.

Man, it really just kind of hits me going through recorded game history and seeing all old pals that aren't alive anymore. Bittersweet though. Glad I could save some shit to remember them buy.

My second favourite after Security.  A shame how underrated it was.

This is it boys, the life support will be unplugged tomorrow.

Say your goodbyes.
I have a very cringy picture of me browsing b.net back in 2009 or 2010. Might post it here someday when I miss being bullied.

Sep7agon really is a blessing. Is sapphire still up?

If I'm not here, I'm doing photography. Or I'm asleep. Or in lockdown. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is just normal.
Sapphire is still there.

Just like communism it's had a fair share of Stalinist purges but it's there.

Posts revolve around collecting user data like a shitty facebook site, and blasting them with the usual tankie rhetoric.

I have a few accounts on there to see if it's still running (several backups because every time I talk about the place they ban one).

Like, half the old guard of them are banned and drifting around other offsites.

I dunno man, but over half the new topics are like what-ifs and how many x's d you own.
Seems like a constant ratings check and how buddy-buddy you are with the people who run the place.

I get the feeling that if it weren't originally just an offsite for a spinoff fandom group of a sci-fi game released over a decade ago, it would be a cult lol.

Like, half the old guard of them are banned and drifting around other offsites.

I've found 5 (Sep7 included)

But I'm aware of at least another one that is older than the rest and existed before the destiny emmigrations, and another one that I think is truly dead, during the rocky period of new offsites being built up.

So we got:
Sep7
Bungleboards
Newflood
Sapphire
Several discord of random bungie offtopicer's making their own places (that I count as a single one)

The old place (LudicrousIdea or something, idk)

The dead place (Flood v2 or something, again idk)

It's not a completely unique thing to happen when an official site kills off it's forum (EA/Battlefield did something similar as Sep7 was starting out, and forumers there made an enitre new site based around it.

What is unique is that so many have sprouted from the decision, and how they have lasted. Sure Sapphire, here and New Flood are fairly quiet these days, but that Battlefield offsite has come and gone in the time in between any of these places.
