You and Narc are right,

I always thought of fansites as portals to the community. Somthing to help is somthing the community uses, and the creators should be lucky that people use it! Don't get all hung up on credits. Mabye the reporters aren't as nice as they should be, but it's promoting Oni/Bungie thins. Isn't that why you set out in the first place? :)

Mabye i should get my act together and work on my own site.
