Hey, Beyond…looong time lurker and I figure it's finally time to say hello. I’ve been working on a way of hoping to help grow grassroots Halo, the HCS scene, and content creators, all the while still celebrating our classic roots. It’s an app called Turf and it aggregates and promotes select content across YouTube, Twitch, and Twitter and brings it all to one spot. HCS Grassroots partners, along with current and former pros, will be featured when they're streaming, hosting tournaments, and posting new content.

I've made a conscious decision to link out to the content and not play it through the app itself--so it'll open say, Twitch, if you tapped on a clip that's from there--so that it can be supported through the channel it was posted on, liked, subscribed, retweeted, etc. Maybe this experience can be improved upon in the future.

Some of what is brought in to the app is done so automatically, but there is also a bit of manual work at this stage. There's a bunch of content I'm still working on bringing in today--especially the pre-2011 Tournaments--and that could definitely use all your help! Feel free to post up anything you think should be there and pardon the dust.

It's a bit early stage...there hasn't been anyone else testing this out yet so I'm not sure what's going to happen under more users...and there will be bugs. Just wanted to get it out to everyone here first and see if it resonates in the community.  And if it does, we can help build it up together. Thanks and hope you enjoy it.

 

I got the app, and it seems pretty cool, I'll definitely pay attention to it. Since it seems that you are just going with a place that combines all media, I would suggest adding a place for any articles or text-based media that get written, although I know that there probably isn't many being written now. This would include 343 posts like the community updates, any articles on tournament results or roster announcements, or just anything text-based and not a video like AMAs that could happen on reddit.

Definitely looking into adding news/other updates...and I hadn't thought of AMAs! Thanks for checking it out and the feedback, much appreciated.

Watching Walshy, Goldenboy, and the Gamers Outreach crew debate cereals is actually pretty funny.
Although I am disappointed there's no Waffle Crisp #greatestcerealofalltime
But Cinnamon Toast Crunch does run a close second.

EDIT:

Does anyone have the screenshot and/or link to the tweet of Hecz telling Reiku78 that small brained people have small brain thoughts or something like that? It used to be someone's sig and it cracked me up.

Until now I've always been alone in mentioning Waffle Crisp as the greatest cereal and was just thinking about how it should've been included in today's debate. They need to bring it back, white it only got discontinued last year it's been at least a decade since I've seen any in Texas. RIP.

Am I the lone Rice Krispies supporter? 

Rice Krispies are cool. But I feel like when it's surrounded by lucky charms, cinammon toast crunch, frosted flakes, whatever, Rice Krispies will frequently be second place.

Like parents will buy their kids Rice Krispies still if they don't want their kid eating pure sugar cereals. It's good, but not the insane bowl of sugar that other cereals offer.
