HaloMods Forums will close temporarily As some of you may have read on Bungie's website lately, the cheating problem on Xbox Live has grown out of control. While our moderating team has been vigilant in eliminating any information about these cheats on HaloMods over the past month, I feel the time has come for me to take more drastic measures. Starting today, I have decided to temporarily close both the files forum and the main forum until Bungie releases their next auto-update. From what I hear, this will likely be in the next few weeks. I know this will disappoint many of you, but I think it is better for the long-term health of our community. You may remember a similar situation on the HBO forums when Halo 2 was leaked. I believe the majority of our community despises what these XBL cheaters have done to ruin the Halo modder's reputation. Modding is supposed to be about being creative and adding new content to our favorite game. We will not tolerate their intrusion into our community. During this time, the main HaloMods webpage will remain up, so please do your part to help Bungie out. If you see ANYONE using mods on live, please click the "report cheaters" button on the right side of this page. You need to have an account with the main site. In addition, if you find any links with step-by-step tutorials on how to mod and get on XBL, links for warezing the new maps, or cheat ppfs, send the link to cheaters-list@halomods.com. We will forward the information to Bungie so they can take appropriate action. Even though the forums will be closed, you may still contribute stories to our main page. Our IRC channel will remain open. Again, sorry for the inconvenience this may cause many of you. Update: Thanks to all of you who are sending links to websites that are doing the following. -cheating tutorials -pirated downloads of new maps -cheat ppfs If you run one of these sites, you would be well advised to shut it down since this is what MS and Bungie are targeting. I have been pleasantly surprised at how many people are reporting this activity. Every little bit helps. On a side note, even though the forums are not accessible by the normal users, the Moderators have taken this opportunity to perform an overdue cleanup of the spam and off-topic posts, and to do a little bit of organization. When the forums do come back up, they should be in better shape. -Grenadiac PraetoriaGuard strikes back NewsWhile we wait for Bungie to release a patch to fight the scourge of modders on XBL, the Praetoria Guard clan has taken matters into their own hands by doing vidcaps of cheaters on live. Good for them. http://carnage.bungie.org/haloforum/halo.forum.pl?read=621858 By the way, you may have noticed our XBL cheater report system. Simply click on the button at the top right of the page and fill in the required information. You will need to supply valid gamertags and information or the form will reject it. Your submission will be forwarded to Bungie.
