Well, these things happen. :|
EDIT BY DUKE: Let's remove the commentary of what members think should or should not have happened here, or we'll never have a positive experience.
Been here on & off since November 2004, just before the V1/V2 turnover. Came here for the Halo 2 skull discussion on the recommendation of someone from the Bungie.net forums (I carried over my username from there), stayed for the totally crazy off-topic section. Only banned one time for contributing to a spam thread.
Best part of this place: The moderators aren't like policemen. They're just like you & me, but with a little more responsibility. I've NEVER been to any other forum with such an awesome attitude...
Second best aspect: Boundless creativity. On the tricking side, it's a wonder y'all aren't members of Bungie's testing squad. On the off-topic side, wonderful technical advice and enchanting graphic design.
Many good posters left in recent times, but those who stuck around kept me coming back time & time again...
I never contributed anything of note besides a failed petition and some long music lists, as tricking turned out to be much too time consuming. But I still had tons of fun. even though I couldn't be with the heart of the community.
I MUST give thanks to my favorite members...
