    A very big well done to you. This is the first milestone that makes you truly think the forum is doing really well in my opinion :) Well done and I wish you to reach 1 million posts very soon.

    That's a rather big number. Congratulations, man. Your site makes me think of Perfect Dark. What a game!

    So what do you think your "key" to this level of success was? I realise no admin can make a forum successful overnight, but there must have been some marketing/promotional method that beat all the others.

    Well it took about 4 years, which is more than probably most sites to reach this goal but hey it's all good. I thankfully am able to advertise every day on Bungue.net and Xbox.com in their clan recruitment area of the forums. Since 2007 when my site was started, we've expanded into other games besides Halo too so that also provides areas from more discussion and involvement.

    I've also been blessed with awesome members throughout the years and most of them have stayed active for years. We've got hundreds who have signed up but due to their personal lives or waning interest in gaming, they fall off, but we have about 25-30 now who consistently sign on every day and it's just amazing.

    I think once Halo 4 comes out discussions are just going to explode. I guess another "secret" is that new great games come out we get even more members and have even more to talk about.

    That's cool, Halo's a nice franchise. I could see why Bungie.net would be a great opportunity since it's huge. Yeah, I agree that it's great to keep regulars interested since when they become friendly with each other they'll sometimes visit your forum even just for the sake of maintaining their new friendships. Sucks when great members leave, but I guess that's just life.

    I wish you the best of luck with your future endeavours. :)
