ok who the f**kin h**l wants to shut down the site

 #4 - Posted by: MrFlammable (Member) on 07-28-2008 at 11:07

Sorry Shadow, I had to choose 'pay the staff' :p for a real answer though, I'm not sure. There isn't a whole lot to be done while waiting for the next 3 Halo projects to come out. We could post news/videos of Halo Wars I suppose?

 #5 - Posted by: Dimanche (Member) on 07-28-2008 at 11:39

I chose to pay the staff, because I couldn't find anything to specify in other, and the site graphics are fine, I can't find anyway to change the presentation of the mods, and I wouldn't just ban everyone I don't like. I tend to hate lots of people. And, who wants to shut down the site? I may not have Halo for PC, but I enjoy the community.

 #6 - Posted by: Missing_String (Staff) on 07-28-2008 at 12:12

What a great time to say the staff should get paid. In all seriousness, graphics are fine, presentation is good, and banning everyone that I don't like would be equivalent to nuking the userbase. Not really much room for improvement on the front-end. :p

 #7 - Posted by: Greenvalv (Staff) on 07-28-2008 at 16:18

@#6: Nuke the userbase, Nuke the userbase, Nuke the userbase, Nuke the userbase, Nuke the userbase.... but seriously... pay the staff!

 #8 - Posted by: acidfluxxbass (Member) on 07-28-2008 at 17:35

i'd make sure we get sum decent damn potd's and then encourage more traffic with better mod presentation. and get rid of this blue. maybe green or purple tio actually suit halo..

 #9 - Posted by: Missing_String (Staff) on 07-29-2008 at 05:34

How would you suggest we improve the mod presentation?

 #10 - Posted by: manomods (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 09:14

the best to improve it is to make a list and put good mods at the top and bad ones at the bottom

 #11 - Posted by: manomods (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 09:15

or just keep the mod presentation like it is

 #12 - Posted by: jackle12 (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 17:31

Graphical User Interface needs a majour overhaul. Seriously. I'll help. :P

 #13 - Posted by: zoxin0 (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 23:18

seriously, I would make the file of the week not the file of the 2-3 weeks... Cuz last "week" my grav rifle was fotw for about 2 and a half weeks.

 #14 - Posted by: zoxin0 (Member) on 07-29-2008 at 23:19

And btw... Who the heck wanted to close the site? 8 ppl? seriously guys... ARE YOU NUTS?!

 #15 - Posted by: Xenophon38 (Member) on 07-30-2008 at 06:12

1Break free from the corporate scum at Ziff Davis and make the site independent, but affiliated with Bungie & Gearbox to aid them in program development and seek limited financial support. 2 Expand the site, have more forums, better graphics, and peer- based reviews that mean something, inane, and derogatory comments would not be posted. 3 Give incentives to modders , like contests with actual prizes and possible paid internships in game design with game software manufacturers, a portion af which would go back into the site to help run the site and pay the staff. You asked.

 #16 - Posted by: manomods (Member) on 07-30-2008 at 09:14

we r sorry we did

 #17 - Posted by: Missing_String (Staff) on 07-30-2008 at 09:18

1) As far as I know, this entire web-app is owned by Ziff Davis Media. Breaking free would cause minor problems. 2) What kind of expansions are you suggesting? 3) Not to sound harsh, but not too many modders here are going to get into game design. You answered. :p

 #18 - Graphics - Posted by: RandomPinoy09 (Member) on 07-30-2008 at 10:57

Instead of the Halo 1 pictures for the Halo Files logo, I would go for a combination of Halo 1, 2, and 3

 #19 - old staff - Posted by: AFleader (Member) on 07-30-2008 at 20:01

i would put the old staff back in buisness, when me and peth and the others ran it it was a much better site than it is now sorry but to me its the truth

 #20 - Posted by: shadow43289 (Staff) on 07-31-2008 at 01:20

I was here the entire time you were on the staff (I've been here since early '05 and only Flam was here longer) so I'm as 'old skool staff' as you can get AFleader and I recall you were fired for doing exactly no work. If you want to get into it, I was doing Peth's job for a long time before he quit and I was made Site Manager.

 #21 - Posted by: Cheezmasta (Member) on 07-31-2008 at 02:19

i would host modding competitions, set themes for potd and other competitions like video making.

 #22 - I chose - Posted by: Moosk93 (Member) on 07-31-2008 at 03:01

I chose, fire the staff, and ban the members, and close the site. just because i'm mean like that! >:D

 #23 - Posted by: Dimanche (Member) on 07-31-2008 at 11:45

#22, I don't even find that funny. Seriously.

 #24 - Posted by: Nitronumber9 (Staff) on 07-31-2008 at 15:19

Sack the staff. Including me.

 #25 - Posted by: Rollin_Thunder (Member) on 08-01-2008 at 14:41
