|The Welcoming Committee|
|Motto||The white gloves of community.|
The Welcoming Committee is a resource for all me
mbers. They are the friends to the new and the old - a helpful voice that steps forward to assist the lost and confused. Their charge is one of service, rather than moderation. They'll keep a sharp eye trained on the #Support forum, and patrol the community in search of fresh faces that need a welcoming hand.
The Group was created on the 25th of January 2012, at that time only active ninjas were added to the group which came to a total of 22 members including DeeJ and Urk.
On January the 29th, 2013 the members from a now dis-used chapter called 'The Welcome Wagon' were transfered over. This was annouced later on in February on the 11th, 2013.
At this point the roster had 37 members, that consist of Bungie Employees, Ninjas, and regular community members.
On June 24th, 2014, the first batch of non Ninjas/Bungie were granted the forum badge of "Mentor" the Welcoming Committee. This marked the first time in bungie.net history that there is different priveledged type of responsibility within the new bungie.net community. Mentors are classified as the "Shield" of bungie.net, while the Ninjas remain as the "Sword" of the community.
Forum Mentors primary responsibilities rely in the Support/Help forum as well as welcoming new members and assisting them questions pertaining to the site. It has been found that they also have the abilitiy to edit forum posts just like the forum ninjas.
