Every website does things a little differently, so I thought it might be beneficial to have a thread where we could share helpful hints about anything and everything relating to the Halo Waypoint forums.

Old members: Please share something you think a new user should know.

New members: If you have a question, ask it here! There's plenty of people willing to help out.

One rule: Please share only one hint per post so numerous people can participate. Thanks!
Post on topic to help others stay on topic.

What is a Retweet?
When you click it, it will take you to twitter, where you can then tweet about it.

E.g: I click it on the post you just made and then on my twitter account my followers will see it. I retweeted what you said and shared it.
Thanks! I'll keep away then [not a Twitter...er.]
if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all
- i break this one a lot so don't follow my example.
There are many BB Codes that Halo Waypoint has that are available for use for example,

Bold Text
Italic Text
Underlined Text

There is a master topic on this found here: Forum BBCode.
If you want to discuss anything non-related to Halo, Xbox, or other video games.
Go to the Yo thread for those discussions.
Just remember to follow the Waypoint rules please.

Hello, I have complaints and/or Issues with the series, books, games and so on, where can I go to have my voice heard where it would actually matter.

I would like to talk to 343 Industries and make my input on development, I am looking for the best forum location for this end.

Thank you.

Hello, I had a quick question which was bugging me for a while.

everyone seems to have a certain rank on Waypoint (from Recruit to Administrator), and I was wondering: how dose one improve their rank in the forums?

Posting seems to be the main way to improve your rank. This thread has a list of ranks and post number requirements.
