Bungie Mail Sack Image

The Bungie Mail Sack was a weekly Bungie question-and-answer article on Bungie.net where users could ask questions for Bungie employees to answer. It ran from December 23, 2011,[1] to December 21, 2012.[2]

It was the temporary replacement of the Bungie Weekly Update during "The Darkness" period on Bungie.net when Bungie was transitioning the Halo series to 343 Industries but hadn't yet announced their new game, Destiny.

The Mail Sack was created by DeeJ, who let users ask questions in official "Mail Sack" threads he created in Bungie.net's Community Forum, typically on Monday mornings. He would gather the questions he liked, and on the following Friday, they be answered in a News Article.

Mail Sack 7 Contest

In Mail Sack Se7en,[3] DeeJ joked about community members fighting a battle to the death and the winner receiving a "Burn Bright. Burn Blue." t-shirt, before adding an editor's note that what he said wasn't true and that he doesn't condone fights to the death.

In this challenge, members had to "draw themselves out of a paper bag." This Mail Sack challenge was notable because jyrine, who was initially named a winner of the challenge, was later revealed to have submitted a plagiarized entry, created by another artist several years ago. He quickly admitted it was a misunderstanding of humor, and as per DeeJ's suggestion, made light of the incident. The winners thread, including jyrine's admission of plagiarism, can be found here.


Mail Sack 8 Contest

DeeJ challenged the community to take the Master Chief helmet cake image and add a message in front of it.[4] Seven finalists were then selected a few days later.[5]
