      With Reach coming out, and Forge-world being more than Sandbox ever could dream to be, what better time would there be to once again gather interest and attention to this group?

      I have no plans as of yet, nor do I plan on making any, but I think many of us can agree that while it lasted those fridays kicked ass.

      If you could care less, do so, but if you'd like to see more games when Reach comes out, I'm sure we'd love to have you.

      Thanks for reading (I guess?).

      Alright, sorry for the half a year long hiatus but I would like to start us up again,

      So I have planned a map testing session on Sunday the 14th of March around 3:00pm PST or 5:00pm PST. We'll bring some old maps we had done before and some new ones, all together this will also bring up big play dates are

      April 14th- Halo 2 good bye day
      May 3rd-? Halo Reach Sandbox Map Testers get together (Invasion, head hunters and such) - I will film the crap out of the damn gameplay.

      And so yeah, I just defibbed this group!

    • Friday TESTING...then CLUSTERFUCK

      Sandbox Map Testers

      This Friday if you so choose to accept the assignment...we will be testing...[[or rather re-testing]] maps created by our members...

      I've been lazy for quite some time...but Tommorrow i will scan over every SINGLE map created by you guys...

      and on Friday...we will play those that even seem remotely worthy...

      there are three pages full of Maps to be evaluated and tested...

      So there will be plenty of play...BUT...if i notice the game becomes to onesided because of the map or weapon layout...i will stop the game and immediately stamp the maps as "Needs major workover"...

      After we finish testing maps we will resume the cluster fuck Shenanigans that we've grown to love so dearly...

      Since the decline in group activity and overall entusiasm, we've noticed a need to expand to a larger scale. We just started a group on Bungie.net for this group to reach a larger audience. We would like everyone already in this group to join that one also to show support and keep us going (who knows, now that we've got a group on there we might even get into Bungie faves :D ).

    • Another Friday Fragdown...Maybe...Sorta.

      This Friday if things go as planned we will be testing a few maps and having random fun once again...

      Maybe...Depends....

      See i'm getting FiOS this Friday...around noon...and according to the manual it could take between 4-6 hours or MORE.... [[FUCK YEA NO MORE LAG OUT....I hope]]

      So i'm not sure if i'll be there...I assume nothing...

      If it happens we have a few maps we need to test since we didn't get to last time...and NatDog was patient enough to wait...so i feel we could oblige on his request...

      So i'm guess what i'm asking is who will be there?...and who will host it in the event that Verizon fails to be here ON FUCKING TIME???

      ...Oh and if you say you'll be there...be there...[with a buffer time of 30-40 minutes...after...not before]....

      Either way...Send a Message to my GAMERTAG...not my PM inbox here...

      Its time to reignite the flame. As you know our Group has seen an immense drop in activity since the hayday of Rounds 1-3 of the Luke McKay map testing gatherings and videos. So I've taken the time to figure some ways to promote and re-initiate the excitement that once fueled this group. Some of these are common sense, some took some more forethought.

      1) Group Ad Contest.
      -This should generate some activity and participation. This will not be put into effect until the general feeling is back that the group is back on it's feet. Winner will receive 400 Microsoft Points, and will be voted by its peers.

      2) Member to member invitations.
      -Most groups do this. Invite anyone and everyone whom you believe will participate in our gatherings or Forum threads/votes. They must meet requirement. [ 16yrs old, or vouch for maturity on your behalf, we don't want annoying twats ]

      3) Possible Video Evaluations
      -Because not everyone will look at your map. For this we will wither look and evaluate submitted maps, or show off the best ones. If this is done, it will be an end of the month ordeal.

      4) Individual Gathering/news/votes reminders
      -Admin to member reminders about gathering/news/votes. (will peak to Admins)

      5) Profile Links
      -Random profile looking happens. The chances that they click the link and join are slim but exist.

      6) Group to group Plugs
      -In planning stages...news will come as it develops.

      ____________________________________________________________________________________________

      In other news...

      I do take notice in members that contribute to the group. Such as with new admin Caboozles, whom has contributed by hosting several group gatherings, and in doing so, helped asure the groups continuation.

      So keep in mind that your contributions and paricipation does make a difference, and it is noticed
