Halo CE General Discussion » Was halomaps down? Yesterday @ 02:27 PM (Total replies: 5)

In the never ending battle that is 2020 a faulty power supply temporarily took the file archive off-line. It has been replaced and the files are once again available for download.

Tropical Storm Isaias was not kind to Connecticut and took us off the net. Over 3/4 of the state was affected with power and connectivity outages. We lost our fiber connection and it took several days until new fiber was run and re-connected. But we are back, at least until the next apocalyptic event which I expect will be a Covenant battle ship appearing overhead.

Halo CE General Discussion » We have a spammer - JadeUndead Jun 23, 2020 11:48 AM (Total replies: 15)

Some people are truly zany characters nowadays.

I finally read one of the spam posts before 2 click deleting them all and it was a fever dream of right-wing propaganda and misinformation about what is arguably one of the most important and overdue social movements in my lifetime. I marched in the streets for the right of 18 year old's to vote and to end the Vietnam war (yes I am that old) and have born witness to the inequities that the Black Lives Matter movement justifiably seeks to end. And while I applaud and support those currently marching for justice, this forum is not the place to debate such matters regardless of your views.

I am locking this thread so as to not give it more air.

As you probably have seen we have a spammer who is intent on posting off color and racists rants in the forum. Probably due to some imagined slight. He is from California in the Yuba City / Marysville area of the state and goes by the pseudonym of JadeUndead and/or JadeRenegade. I have blocked several of the Comcast network sub-nets in that area however I can't block them all or it will affect others. Some how he got triggered.

He has a YouTube channel (see below) and an account at Ratchet-Galaxy and apparently his Reddit account has been suspended like the one here.

Regardless of his username of the moment, Please do not respond to his posts . I will continue to delete them (it is only 2 clicks no matter how many posts he makes) as he makes new accounts and continues to post off topic.

I have turned off the email notification system and lengthened the time between posts until such time as he decides to stop.

If you know him please ask him to stop, it is just so childish. Or you can go to his YouTube channel and contact him thru there. (some of his videos are interesting)

Unfortunately not everyone is properly socialized.

Good morning
Hopefully some place it is.

Halo CE General Discussion » Halo Maps Website Status Jun 4, 2020 01:09 PM (Total replies: 20)

I am sure there has been much (completely unfounded) speculation, rumors, falsehoods, whispering, shouting, cursing and self indulgent complaining that the websites were unavailable for 4 days. FOUR WHOLE DAYS! My god! The humanity!

So here goes:

Yes, I am still among the living.

No, the websites have not closed.

Yes, I intend to keep them open.

No, none of the files were lost.

I had to get a part for the database array that services the gaming websites and because of the pandemic and lock-downs it took much longer than normal to get it shipped.

Please stay safe. Wash your hands. Wear a mask. Socially distance and take care.

Also glad to see Dennis isn't dead after all the speculation
Nope I am still breathing. I had to get a part for the database array that services the gaming websites and because of the pandemic and lock-downs it took much longer than normal to get it shipped.

This is lunacy. Why not just lock any threads that have nothing to do with 'modding CE?'
Buy a server, open your own forum and moderate it how you see fit. Until then keep your opinions about it to yourself. I really have very little patience left with back seat drivers or smart-mouthed mouthed juveniles.

You realise when I'm posting in all these stupid forums that aren't even discussing modding I'm simply being a ass right?
I fixed that for you.

HTTPS when?

Certs are free and easy.
Probably never. This is a public form that does not collect any personal information and frankly I don't care if someone captures the packets of data flowing from or to this particular website. Reading it would only lower their IQ buy a dozen points anyway.

Also, Dennis: What legal right do you have to distribute Halo Custom Edition,
The one granted me by the user agreement, and the EULA.

Stop trying to be a primadonna. If you were as smart as you claim you think you are you would have never had to ask such an incredibly stupid and inane question.

Yes. imo it might as well be abandoned officially right?
No it is not "officially" abandoned nor has the copyright expired. Your opinion does not align with the facts.

I am necro-bumping this thread.

It is 2020 now. Is CE considered abandonware yet?

No.

You guys are too young to be so nihilistic.

Is this trolling? I just can't tell anymore
Of course it is. No reasonable person would respond that way.

Until an official editing toolkit becomes available it may not make sense to add it to this site.
Those astute enough to notice will see that the websites only supported games that allowed for level creation and sharing. The MCC does not.

Is this site closing in 2018?

I'll get back to you on that in 2020.

I'd like to follow up on this comment as we are quickly approaching 2020.
To answer Matt's question No it won't be closing in 2018. To answer yours I have no plans to close it.
