The Seventh Column, also referred to as the Septagon.

The Seventh Column is the name of Bungie's official fanclub and "underground army." Although Bungie fansites can be found throughout the internet dating back to the 1990s, the "Seventh Column" is the collective name given to the entire Bungie Community.

The Seventh Column's "official" starting point and primary presence was located on Bungie.net through its public forums and private Groups, but that has since changed and is now associated with any website, club, clan, or anyone who is a fan of Bungie or Bungie's games.
