Basic InformationEdit

Bungie.net (established June 13th, 1995; in those days it was a separate community site from 'Bungie.com,' the more "official" site) is the official public gathering place for Bungie (formerly Bungie Studios) fans. People come from around the world to read and submit new information, and to hold discussions in the forums. Bungie.net is the Internet home for Halo, Myth, Oni, and Marathon, and the only place with official Bungie info straight from the developers.

Bungie.net has been through three major iterations, with several minor ones in between. Prior to 2004, Bungie.net was a purely informational community site, containing simple forums, company news, and other information. From 2004 through 2012, Bungie.net became "the New Hawtness," with a signature "dark" background, thorough integration of Halo players' statistics and in-game media (such as screenshots and videos), and dedicated forums. On January 10, 2013, Bungie implemented "Bungie.next," a complete reimagining of the site which allows login with multiple authentication methods (including Microsoft Account, Playstation Account, Facebook, or Google+), removes dedicated forums in favor of hashtag filtering, and allows users to fully customize their community experience by following, muting, hiding, and filtering other posts and users.

Persons and Organizations of Particular SignificanceEdit

CurrentlyEdit

Web Team
Bungie.net is maintained by a group of people known as the "Web Team". Of the many people that belong to this branch of the Bungie hierarchy, there are a few of them who make frequent public appearances, most notably Achronos and RunningTurtle.
Community Team
These people do not maintain the website, but they do use it to broadcast content to the masses. Features DeeJ and Urk.
Emotional Support
The Disembodied Soul is Bungie.net's Emotional Support hotline (whatever that means). Basically, he's an intangible being that exists as a prisoner inside Bungie's web server. Although he's relatively dormant nowadays, there have been flashes of Soul-like activity that could possibly imply a comeback in the near future.
The Webmaster
The Webmaster is a drunken man who is never seen without his gorilla suit and accompanying cowboy hat. He's responsible for a lot of the stuff you see and interact with on Bungie.net, and his silhouette is the default Bungie.net avatar.
Forum Ninjas
The Bungie.net forums are moderated by several individuals known and labeled as "Forum Ninjas". These moderators are volunteer Community Members (not Bungie employees) who have distinguished themselves on the forums and earned the trust of Achronos.
