    Hello and welcome to ForgeHub! Let me be the first to say we are happy you stopped by and hope you enjoy what the site has to offer. There are a few things you should be educated on before you start posting. These items of ForgeHub knowledge will help make sure you and the other community members have an awesome time on the site.

    The first order of business is when you are about to make a thread asking a question, make sure to first use the search bar located at the upper right of the webpage. There is a chance that your question might of been answered already.

    Be respectful and responsible when posting.
    This is one of those things that shouldn't have to be stated but needs to. It is understandable that arguments and heated discussions will happen, but please refrain from using derogatory terms, personal attacks, threats, or anything else along those lines. Don't post any illegal or inappropriate content because this isn't that kind of "hub". If you are unable to follow the above, then it may result in you getting a warning or even a ban.

    Also please no alt accounts. Alt accounts are usually a way for someone to do the things above and try to get away with it so please don't do it.

    When posting your map, make sure you know if your map is completed or still a W.I.P. (Work In Progress) so you post it in the correct area.
    • If your map is still a WIP, don't post it in the maps section of the site, Instead make a thread in the Forge discussion board with the title of the map and "WIP" so people know at a quick glance. A lot of times people will want to help test and give feedback for it so it is best to also provide your gamertag or a link to where download it.
    • If your map is completed or in the finale playable stages then you can post it in the Maps area located at the top of the webpage. There, people will be able to download, rate, and review you map. That is why it is best to make sure your map is in those final stages so others can expect what to play but still give feedback for minor adjustments.
    Constructive Criticism and Critiquing
    Every one here is most likely a forger to some extent, and with that most of us care a lot about what we make. On this site, you are going to receive feedback you like and don't like but remember most of us, if not all of us, want to see each other succeed. When receiving feedback, take some of it with a grain of salt since feedback is inherently opinion based. When giving feedback, sometimes it is best to explain in more detail and provide ways to improve or fix a problem (people will be grateful for that). Don't say someone's map sucks because it doesn't have a BR or you don't like the colors they are using. We all put a lot of time in the maps we create so don't be a donkey.

    Lastly, there are a great bunch of people known as the Staff and they will have Orange or Red names. We are here to help and make this place the best it can for you so if you have any problems or questions feel free to post it in here or PM one of us. This is the current list of staff members.

    Feel free to introduce yourself and once again welcome to ForgeHub! Have fun, forge on!

    Just want to introduce myself. :) My first Halo forum was the 343i Community Forum, and I've been registered there since 2012. Today's my first day here, and I joined to post a submission that I've been working really hard on for the Hub of the Dead contest. I'm not very active on forums anymore, I personally just don't feel comfortable spending that much time on them anymore. I was super active back on my first forum until about a year ago. I registered here just so I could occasionally post my maps, because I really like the whole system with map submissions here.

    Go ahead and add me on Xbox Live, my gamertag is Dezert Fuze, and I've been spending a lot of time on my Xbox the past 2 weeks, and for the next week probably, since school's starting soon. But I love forging, so I'm pretty excited about my decision to join this place. :D

    I have been forging since Halo 3, but I've never spend that much time on it. Last week I made a decision of starting to do it more seriously and finally trying to get some friends here at Forge Hub and some great levels made.

    So let's start with an introduction. I'm from Finland but I'm currently living in Sweden. I've been working as a level designer and for a while as a game designer on mobile games since early 2012, and I bet most of you have played at least one of the games I've done levels for. The reason why I want to start doing Halo levels is that my dream is to one day be hired as a level designer for a fps game or anything cool in 3D.

    I'm hoping to learn more about level design from everyone by getting tips and feedback when I get something done. Feel free to add me on Xbox Live. My GT is Lt Zorsselsson. I also like to give feedback to others, so I will definitely play a level if someone asks me or share my expertise on anything else related to games. :p

    Just joined and loving the community already I was thinking about maps and I remembered basically the 1st and only map I have ever made on halo reach ugghh it was so bad but I was proud of it and my friends actually enjoyed it it needed a lot more work though but I have never made another map as I aint actually that good at forge but I'm here to try and learn a bit more as well so I can do better and maybe try producing maps of my own one day :)
    But if anyone ever needs a builder on a map then I can help as creating stuff on my own I may struggle but you show me what I'm to do and I can be efficient I'd also like to think that I have good Ideas :3 :p

    I joined not too long ago, I forged a ton with my cousin in my childhood and through teen years but it was almost always nonsense (fun nonsense), some of it looked beautiful but this is the first time I started making maps with structure and purpose utilizing what I learned screwing around. My specialty is making mini games and infection games that make people happy and give them great memories. My weakness is in level design. I can make a very beautiful looking map, but making it play well (the important part) is a huge challenge for me, I understand basic balance and map flow and can at least make maps fair but I hope to get better. I do love giving people advice for improving the look of their map and helping when I can...... Also I always run out of budget and it makes me sad because I always want to add more.

    Big frickin' deal, I'm new. Haven't been here since Halo Reach on my old account. Pretty psyched if you can't tell.

    Do you remember your old account? I can merge that one with this one for you and change the name too to what you want

    Yeah that would be cool, but I have my new Xbox live account setup to this account by the same name (Tom R Toes). If you can merge them so that everything on Tom R Toes is the same but have the history of my old account that would be great! My old account is Roricsseal1, I have forgoten the password and that xbox live account setup to it is no longer mine. So it would be great to have the histoy of that account and stuff that went along with it.

    It's definitely possible. I'm sure Iron will hook you up when he gets a chance. ;)
