02/02/12 | Support for Halo stats on Bungie.net rides into the sunset on March 31st. It is the end of a magnificent, world-class era.

01/17/12 | New thread time (again)! The Reach OT has now evolved into broader discussion thread. This does not replace ongoing or future Halo threads, but rather acknowledges what has already happened: the HaloGAF community uses these threads as a gathering place to discuss all things Halo. Reach, CEA, past Halo games, books and other fiction, AR vs. BR, the works.

About the thread header: they are on rotation, every time you refresh, a new one is selected. If you want to contribute a banner, just make one (approximately 900x400) and post it. I'll add it to the rotation folder.​

Halo Data Drops

343 has been dribbling a series of cryptic 'data drops' each Friday, graduall building out some backstory. Is it leading up to Glasslands? Primordium? CEA? Halo 4? The answer is probably, yes.

Just to repeat from the last thread:

I'll mention this again when we get to the new thread, but Wu lovingly set us up with a script to rotate images. We have folders for both headers and footers. Right now I've tossed in four of the ones from the past few pages for the headers.

My thought is, everyone can contribute their own, and everything appropriate (ahem) will go into the rotation.

We should agree on some kind of standard for dimensions. I have to go to a meeting for the next two hours, but I have the new OT ready and will hit post in a few minutes, and I'll work in updates later today.

Agreed. A cut-down version, with a nice title (and maybe a NeoGAF logo - I couldn't find one to use quickly) would work just fine.

Here's a possible start, for example:

That could make an awesome banner.

Right, here's something simple of mine:

Two versions, because that's how I roll.
Oh I like this also, the second one particularly.
