Nice update. Again, I love reading these things and checking out all the new stuff. Couple things...

Do you know when that background will be on HT? The pic in the Graphics section that Mista made.

Also, in the first sentence in the Media section, you misspelled Frodo. You have Froho. I'm not trying to be a critique, just wanted to point that out.biggrin.gif

Another amazing and informative update by the journalists! Nice job as always guys.

1. The background won't necessarily be up on HT, it will only be up if it wins the contest.

2. Froho is a nickname for Frodo, so it was probably intentional.

It was removed for a reason Kate, this is HaloTracks not BlackOpsTracks...

Right so this isn't under the same category as a the dashboard update? Because it isn't dashboard update tracks either. Its not like the smallish section about black ops with reach comparisons is anti halo.
