10 Pineappling years

Sat Mar 24, 2018 11:32 pm

I can't believe that a silly stat site I started 10 years has evolved to this. It started as a wheelmen medal tracker to find the best warthog drivers and gunners, and somehow became a community. We grew and shrank reflective of halo population did. We were home to the misfits, the people who didn't fit in to other clans. We didn't MLG, we BTB'ed. We ran vehicles and we did it well. I think that's why it lasted this long. We had a purpose, not just another gaming clan clone.

I've made plenty of mistakes and dumb moves over 10 years, most early on. But I am truly thankful for all the friendships I've made here. We've met up, hung out, stayed in each others houses, had one of you live with me, one of you is now my co-worker, and a few of you have watched my kids. Random people I've found on the internet. People think I'm nuts, but they just don't get it. I trust most people here more than I trust my real life friends.

This site it more than the game it began on, so I know it's going to continue as a community. For what? who knows...
