Of course YouTube opens up the remotest possibility of monetization, which can possibly offset some costs.

Even if it's just a well organized page of youtube streams it would still be a start. It would be a great way to showcase this websites best material.

This is something we should get someone who already has a somewhat successful YouTube channel to manage. Like Crest.

Thomasxp5 already has a decent youtube channel. this is something we need to advertise through our competition and individual montages. I think it'd be a good idea to make a community montage now, to kinda promote the channel and the forum itself. get FBwalshy to upload it, whoever else is big these days. promote 3 things, the youtube channel, the forum itself, and the competition.

a downloads page would be amazing though, I really miss having that, but you guys are right, a youtube channel with a ton of content is a good start

Beyond ent is, they've got 343i staff and pros posting there

It's basically the old mlg forums

Luckily though we have a good relationship with them or at least I do
Thanks.

Members like yourself, Skolls, Scarecrow, etc are great ambassadors for this site.

I think a front page along with a videos page would be a great place to start.
Front page is important for news, could work well with the right staff. Just have to find the right people that are good. If you can't, use the top section more actively. The top section of the site gets pretty dated and doesn't have relevant news for the Halo community a lot of the times. I'm not sure if this is a admins option or whatnot but they aren't doing good.

---------

I've only skimmed the thread, but the OP is pretty much dead on. You guys were the Halo site for members like me from 2005-2008ish. Great montages, discussions, contests etc but the lack of leadership coupled with Halo titles not living up to their predecessors hurt this Halo community site a lot. You guys have to stop living off your past accomplishments and start working on new ones, and it starts with just about everything listed. This site is completely toxic to newcomers and myself and I visit less and less every month.

I wish you guys the best of luck, we'll be having your montage contest on the Beyond forums and we'll moderate to make sure it's positive. If you guys ever have questions/etc feel free to PM me when I stop by. I wish you guys the best of luck in the future.

ps: I don't think you'll be able to buy the site btw, last I heard he wanted $10k for it.
