Are You Finding The Guardian?

Are You Finding The Guardian?

Klawria writes: "OK here it is, since there are so many rumors going around about the existance of "The Guardian", we at HALO National are putting a bounty on its head! Here is the deal....You will need to provide proof that the guardian does exist (simple a video or screenshot that "you have just been killed by The Guradians" a video is preferred) , VHS Video, MPG file, AVI file, whatever, just make sure the words appear on the screen that you have just been killed by THE GUARDIAN. Next provide the reason why or how the guardian name appears when you are killed, is it random? do certain things need to happen? lay out your reasoning. The player with the best proof that THE GUARDIAN does exist gets a $100 gift certificate to EBWORLD.com courtesy of HALONational.com. Send me your link to the video or send me a VHS tape (E-mail me at Klawria@halonational.com to give you the address to mail video) and the reasoning why THE GUARDIAN appears. Simply stated, if you have the best proof of existance then you win!

Remember, you need the following:

Proof of existance(video file, CD or VHS)
Real Proof of how you get killed by "The Guardian"

You have questions, I have answers, let me know.
Good Hunting!

Halo Demo Arrives

Halo Demo Arrives

Today, subscribers to Official Xbox Magazine got an extra bit of lovin' on their game disk. The official Halo demo. Essentially the demo lets you or you and a friend play through the level Silent Cartographer on normal difficulty. But you've played that level a million times, you say? Yes, but it never ended like this...

More Halo Goodness

More Halo Goodness

There's some good new stuff on the site this week. Be sure you check out the Marathon Connection article that Matt and Mordia put together with some screenshot goodness from candyman. Speaking of screens, you asked for 'em you got 'em. Irregular sized "Cinematic Display" wallpaper and wallpaper for Dual-monitor setups now available!

New Feature: Announcements

New Feature: Announcements

A number of members of the Chapter Founders group have been clamoring for top stories for their chapters. We've heard their cries and implemented something we think is even cooler--announcements.

If you're not a staff member you'll see a new option when you submit news that asks you to classify your news as a statement or a memoranda. Staff members, however, have two additional options: Declarations and Directives. All three of these new options, including memos, will show up with fancy new icons provided by Candyman. In addition, Declarations and Directives will show up above the news, in a section called Announcements.

Use these powers wisely, and never for evil.

Bungie Store Opening Soon™

Bungie Store Opening Soon™

Most of you long time Bungie fans remember a little chop shop we used to operate called The Bungie Store. The Store has been down for quite some time now, but we haven't. Instead we partnered with eCompanyStore and together worked up a newfangled version of the site, full of Bungie and Halo branded goodies (and a fun surprise). This new Bungie Store has just been handed over to our crack team of beta testers, and as soon as they give us the green light the store will go live. Stay tuned!

New Chapter Approval

New Chapter Approval

I just approved a busload of new chapters, so if you had one waiting in the queue go check out the Seventh Column page. A lot of these submissions seem like they're already-established groups, but remember that if you're thinking of joining a chapter search your area for active ones before founding your own.

New This Week

Have we got some eye candy for you this week! After a long hiatus, Halo screenshots are back. Twelve new glorious shots taken by our own Mordia.
Also we've got Hunters and guns in the concept art section. Good stuff.

There's an interview with yours truly up at Xbox.com. I can't claim to have said anything that interesting, but you can witness my burgeoning powers of evasion. Matt's influence is infective.

Matt, The Law, and a New Poll

Matt, The Law, and a New Poll

Matt has finally returned from his week of jury duty. He was out of reach so we weren't able to convey the almost unanimous advice you all voted for in the poll--though I'm certain if he'd refused to wear pants the outcome of the trial would have been much different. Anyway, now that things are getting back to normal we've posted a new poll, again over on the left on the Bungie.net main page.

Site Problems

Site Problems

We had some problems on the site yesterday that we're still trying to sort out. Fortunately everything seems back to normal and no data was harmed in the process. In addition, the email address we posted to our theme building tutorial was bouncing this weekend. It should be working soon, but in the meantime if you're trying to submit a theme go ahead and send it to 7themes at microsoft.com instead of at bungie.com. Sorry for the trouble.

Wanted: Aspiring Theme Artists

Wanted: Aspiring Theme Artists

Ever since we launched themes for chapters, Seventh Column members have been clamoring for new themes. We've been too busy to oblige as much as we'd like but many of you have expressed interest in helping out. There's no automated tool for themes, so Candyman has done the next best thing and created a handy little tutorial that will guide you through the process.

Once you've created a theme you like you can submit it to Bungie for possible inclusion on the site. Candyman explains more, plus gives you the tools to create your own themes, in the READ ME file contained within his Theme Building Tutorial. Good luck!

Oh yeah, almost forgot. If you're looking for ideas for new themes to create then check out the Chapter Founders group's theme suggestion database.

New to the T&R site this week- Six, count 'em, six new desktop wallpapers. Each featuring a major character from the game. Shown in an eerie, monochromatic soft focus, they are the perfect compliment for your computer.

Most Active Listing Removed

Most Active Listing Removed

We have decided to remove the "most active" chapter listing, at least for now, primarily because the listing is not very accurate due to some problems with the activity log system itself. Since there is no quick fix, the listing is gone for now. You can still see which chapters are active by looking at the chapter directory. Active chapters have names that are bigger and bolder in the directory.

Back In The Saddle

Back In The Saddle

Whew, I made it back! I've spent most of the day just getting caught up, but I'm once again on top of things. It looks like the Online team took great care of you all while I was away, or at least covered up any signs of abuse. Anyway, Matt is out on jury duty and the rest of the team is working on peripheral projects, so there probably won't be a lot happening this week. We'll do our best though. Don't worry, we haven't forgotten you!

Have you seen the article for the Battle of the Bay? It's worth a look even if you're not headed to the San Francisco area this weekend.
Our Desktop section is worth a listen this week with the addition of a new section : Sounds. If you have a Mac or a PC with a bland or nonexistent sound scheme, head over and turn your computer into a veritable Halo foley machine.
