halo.bungie.net hosts a plethora of stale Halo 2, 3 and Reach game statistics, user-generated content and blog posts by Bungie. Since 343 Industries/Microsoft took over stats and user-generated content hosting for Halo 3 and Reach in April 2012, this data has been sitting stale on Bungie's servers. The detailed statistics for a lot of the Halo 2 and 3 games have been purged periodically to presumably free up Bungie's resources.[1] In 2018, the forums were shut down, and the remaining detailed game statistics were purged.[2] The site will finally shut down on 2021-02-09.[3]
