Biography

Halo showed up at RMRK in the latter half of 2005, and quickly became a prominent member due to both his high posting rate and also his musical talent. His first topic in the forums was one in Resources, offering to make music for other members' RPG Maker projects. He quickly got several request within the first couple of weeks, and then after that was well-known for his music.

During this time he also became a member of The Dark Masters guild, and was shortly after made leader of the Music Group. Several tracks were written for the guild's project, but since the guilds ended up being closed, most of those songs were put into HOTSOMS, a MIDI compilation meant to replace the standard music in RPG Maker XP. Shortly after the guilds were closed, he also closed his topic for music requests, as he had several other projects he was writing all the music for, the most well-known soundtrack being the one to dragonmagna's game.

After he got tired of RPG Maker, he started frequenting the General area of the forums, and would often shed light on an intense conversation, or, with the assistance of dwarra, would try to end senseless flaming. It wasn't long before he, along with dwarra and therophster became Moderators, and later, Global Moderators.

When Silverline became an admin, Halo was promoted to RMRK Super Moderator along with Yossy. In April of 2008, Roph promoted Halo to RMRK Administrator, and Crankeye and Roph himself became Super Administrators.

Halo resigned as administrator on June 10th, 2010 and announced that he was leaving RMRK, citing the current condition of the community and personal events as reason for leaving. Although largely removed from the community, he made a few scattered and infrequent posts that year after leaving, but remained absent for the most part.

In October, 2011, Halo was greeted with open arms as he returned to RMRK and began participating in the community once again.

A campaign sign created by the Taco Revolution in support of HaloOfTheSun.
Not having his administrator position any longer, as part of the Taco Revolution, in February 2012, he and his supporters demanded that Halo be given moderator status or higher once again. Campaign images were posted across the forums and voluntarily placed in signatures and avatars in support of Halo becoming a moderator. Shortly after, Halo was once again made a regular Moderator, making the campaign a success.

Personality

Halo is wise and mature, often impacting a topic's flow or outcome with his posts. He is a common poster in most of the forums, though more notably Intelligent Debate, General Chat, Creativity Outlet and Spam. Halo of course also has a relaxed side, and has no trouble being silly and immature when the time suits it, as he occasionally shows in the spam forum.

Community Involvement

Being both a moderator and regular poster, Halo has been involved in a lot of events.

Halo is one of the guys you want to have on your side. He is frequently involved with RMRK communities. He has added to the Wiki a lot, making and/or editing many member profiles. Post your songs in the creativity outlet, ask for comments/criticism, and you've got it. He is also one of the regulars on the IRC; although you'll most likely find him writing music. He helps people improve their technical skills as well.

Forum Activity

Most of Halo's posts are in the The Sewers, Community, and Video Games sections.

Drama

Usually he tries to stay out of senseless drama, but sometimes just can't help saying something that gets him dragged into it. He's been in fights with:

Most of it happens due to him pointing out how stupid someone is being, or defending one of his friends, and then they get angry and start flaming him.

He also personally spearheaded the dispute with phoenix647, Heath, and ThaHypnotist in the topic Ask the Pick-Up Artist, with large support from Blizzard, Deliciously_Saucy, and Nightwolf.

Projects/Achievements

Halo is one of the musicians on RMRK, and will occasionally put up peices he has created for criticism in The Auditorium. He has a vast amount of music to his name, and many of his tracks can be found in various RPG Maker projects created by members.
