  1. Member Of The Month Banner in the making! :] Hello HaloTracks! I know everyone has been wondering what else the Journalists are going to be doing besides the HT Updates (which as we mentioned in the last update will only be monthly, for now). Well this is just one of a few things we will be doing to help get the community more involved. Member of the Month will be run like Member of the Week was back in the older days, but only monthly for now. We are hoping to get things moving more smoothly around here and trying to get people more involved! Anyway back to November's Member of the Month! Chosen for his contribution to the site over the last few years, @WhiskeyWarm has kept with HT through thick and thin. His dedication to HT DRL has really shown, and he has always been a big helper as a mapmaker too. What is it like to be a member here on HT? I literally can't remember how I got started on Halotracks. I think I made a track on The Pit and searched to see if anyone else had done that. From what I remember in the beginning nearly all tracks were very tight. Which then became wider terrain tracks followed by some awkward tracks on Foundry and then the birth of double wides. Throughout the years on HaloTracks, I believe I have gone inactive twice. I wasn't around much in Reach, but what has always brought me back is map making. When I popped in the H4 disc and looked around the maps I couldn't help planning out some tracks. Are you active in any squads? I think most people on here know of my involvement in the Dirty Racing League which is where I run the leaderboards. DRL keeps me around not only because it has a million tournaments a week, but it's also great fun filled with great characters. However I've been in some other squads over the years. I was in HT Velocity back in H3. Although I wasn't very good, and I think I got second in a race once. I was in HT Hardcore as well and hit it's high during Halo3. I also ran a weekly GooseBattles tournament which was my take on Battle Tracks. For those that don't know what I'm talking about, or just want to remember how fun H3 was: .What is life like for you outside of HT? I got my A-levels in 2008, so I have been out of school for 5 years. I have a Masters in Math and I am currently studying in London for a Masters in Computer Science. I just started a new job working as a software engineer for a small start-up in London. I'm currently helping build their web based product. As for pets there's my large shaggy haired mongrel, but I don't have any pets. At the moment I do not do much outside of HaloTracks. I do play guitar and watch the F1 for enjoyment. What do you hope to bring to HT to help further it’s future? At the moment my HT output is limited to a bi-weekly DRL update, and a terrain track that's half finished. However, I'm moving houses very soon to be closer to work so I should have more time. If I do ever get more time, I expect my contribution to HT to continue to be in the map making category. I still think there's lots of original race content to be made in Halo 4. Before I got this job I had a collaboration contest planned, team race tournament idea, a very cool train station themed track in the works and some cool ideas for some new gametypes. Aside from my creations I also plan to continue the success of the DRL and help HT in which ever way I can when the Race playlist goes live. I believe the race gametype will be a great opportunity to get our community in the spotlight. What is your favorite thing about the race gametype? Spawning on gooses and the ability to make crossovers probably. I enjoy making and racing on Terrain tracks, it has always been my favorite. However, I do like the creative style maps and also Hardcore in H3. I think my least favorite thing about race in general is that I have never been a massive fan of double wides. However, I do remember seeing Shaddoblade's first map on Sandbox and being amazed. You’re an active mapmaker, what got you into that? As I mentioned I made a map before finding HaloTracks, but I don't really remember how I got into competitive Terrain maps. I made Verge quite early on when most tracks were still a little awkward. In terms of my more creative maps I was inspired by Hardcore maps in a H3. Favorite Map Created: H3: Between Corners 3.1 and Pow. H4: Tough one, Chratos, Canine, Lothario, Lioness, Lowline, Vestige. I can't choose. Favorite MapMaker: Hmmm, there's too many...I'll say I'm a big fan of maps by Bean05, NukedlceCream, i ImpROBable and many more. If you ever decide to depart from HaloTracks, what do you want to be remembered as/for? As WhiskeyWarm, the Australian double-wide maker . Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed!

I've been crowned by most of the community as the king of second place this year. One of my goals is to finish 1st in at least one league cup by the end of the season. Some other goals of mine are to top the upcoming National Championship in July and top a regional championship. As far as video game goals go: - Win an HTSX Race - Be Diamond rank in all gears of war 4 playlists (Highest Skill Rank) - Win a game of H1Z1 KOTK (I cry every time) - Beat Call of Duty 2 on veteran ( I cry every time)
