Before I begin, I would like to state my intentions so there will be no confusion on what I am writing this for. I have created this as a message directed towards the staff in general NOT as hate mail, but to bring to the light some things I find that are missing in the staff interaction with regular artists. There is no malicious intent in the writing of this article, I have written it purely to give advice on how the staff can make it easier for new members to create good quality fanfiction that lines up with canon. (This is written from what I have gathered thus far from observing the interaction between staff and members. Feel free to challenge any points brought up below. Examples of how any statements are false would be appreciated.…Read more >
Ok guys long time no see, not seen you all since last year etc. Let's get down to brass knuckles. I've been on and off of this wiki and I've barely found the time. Anyways for a while I've been working with scripts and on another wiki I released a story in the script format which was similar to a television show. So I thought that I might try it with Halo soon. It'll be fanfiction but set in the Army or Marines or something. But I want to know what you guys think? Maybe it'll be the comeback I need too.Read more >

This was originally a character page I wrote for a Halo RPG I used to participate in. It's the first piece of writing I ever really committed to, is probably to thank for me ever getting into Halo Fanon many years down the line.
I was eleven when I first wrote this, I don't regret it, because I learned how to write by taking criticism ("you fucking suck you bitch") from the post.
Have a good laugh.

So I had a dream of making a massive push to finish RLD and then nominate it for one of the annual awards, this has been a plan since January when I first joined. I have had a chapter finished and saving it for my big push and then I WAS TOLD THAT I HAD MISSED THE AWARDS TODAY.
So yeah, my tears are drowning the world right now.

Dear Halo Fanon users,
I'm essentially gone, forever. I left as quite possibly the most controversial admin this wiki has/will ever see. Funny, looking over my contributions from years long past, it's not hard to see why so many were excited that I left and why so few were disappointed. It is, with great honor, that this wiki that I left so long ago is still churning out articles. This will always be one of my favorite accomplishments in my early life. I've written about how proud I am of this community, so I won't go into that like I did before. I don't know why I felt like writing this, but it just felt right.
Soon, another anniversary for this wiki will come up. It excites me that I can log onto here and see progress being made. I was abl…Read more >
I have just come back from a long hiatus and am ready to get back into editing ... I was just wondering if it would be possible to change my username.

I've disappeared for a few months with good reason! I got a new job and a new girlfriend and bla bla bla personal life. Regardless, things are finally starting to stabilize a bit and I can probably start updating regularly now. The plan is to finish RLD, go back and redo some stuff I rushed through previously and then combine the whole volume into a single chapter in time for the Fanon of the year contests (maybe I'll get top novel!)
If that goes right, RLD will also be in the top ten largest pages on the site, so that will be awesome! Anyway, I can't wait to start interacting with you all again in a more fanony capacity. As always, feel free to leave criticism for my stories!
I missed you all!Read more >
OK ik it says to not cross dimensions or like cross games over unless you have to. So I'm wondering how I would do a cross AVP and halo storyline.

In my experiences on wikis for any- and every- thing, the Canon wiki has very strict rules about what people can post and change. But if you go to the Fanon version of that site, things are much different. I have been to several Fanon sites, and most of them have the same idea of what Fanon means. Fanon mean "fan-made" so in turn the articles and other assorted items are completly and totally up to the creator's mind of how stuff works. I came here because I am a fan of the Halo frachise and wanted to give the wiki a new style of Halo Fanon, being a written series or "episodes" as opposed to the normal "New Halo Game" idea that I've seen around here. Apparently the "law" of the wiki is that you cannont create Fanon characters, places, idea…Read more >
Hey guys I know I'm an old face because I've not been active in ages. Anyway I've got an idea inspired from another wiki I'm on. I think this could be really fun and we should try it.
So the story's set roughly in 2553 on the planet Athlon. We each have our own character, who's a member of the UNSC's Army stationed on the planet. The planet is in the far outer colonies and is filling with refugees from the covenant. Now that's where I'll leave it and its a sandbox from there. The writer of the next issue can decide what happens next and there are no restrictions as to what happens. So tell me what you guys think and here's what the rules will roughly look like.

I was procrastinating on studying for my Accounting exam, so I ended up drawing up an organizational outline of the UNSC in Mindjet - using confirmed canonical units. This was kind of spurred by certain user's creative interpretations of the UNSC command structure. What I was personally surprised to learn was that UNICOM - Universal Ground Command, has integrated command of all ground forces, when I had previously pinned it on CENTCOM.
In text format, it looks like this (without formatting, cause ain't nobody got time for that):Unified Earth Government Colonial Administration Authority (Colonial Governance, functionally defunct by 2552) Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service United Nations Space Command (Military/scient…

Hey guys, I’m fairly new here but I have been aware of Halo Fanon for a number of years. Since I first discovered this site the Halo logo that has been used for Halo Fanon is the one that appears uniquely for Halo Reach, and if you haven’t noticed the current logo used in recent Halo games and media is different. I think its time to update Halo Fanon’s logo and be current with the rest of the Halo universe. So anyway, what do you guys and administrators think, any ideas on how to present a new logo.
I made a couple of different logos just for fun and I admit I did get carried away, but I thought I might as well upload them with this blog and see what you think about some of my ideas.
These ones resemble Halo Fanon’s current logo, except they appea…

So, I bought the Halo 4: Essential Visual Guide. It was pretty cool, it tied up the inconsistencies between the original trilogy and the reclaimer trilogy.
Remember that chart with every single video game spaceship? Halo's ships were pretty reasonable in size, nothing too huge. Halo's own ships are circled in blue.
So, apparently the Mantle's Approach is 371,000 meters tall. I scaled the ship in Photoshop to see how it measures up with every other ship. WHAT THE BJORK.
The size is crazy. Question is, how did the Infinity take on a ship 74 times its own size? How did one HAVOK nuke destroy a Forerunner ship the size of High Charity? Is this a Typo or a massive inconsistency? Why doesn't ANYONE comment on the size of the ship? Does Halo now hav…

Today marks 10 years since I first got Halo and I just wanted to hear how the rest of you got into this epic franchise. Note: there were several things on the same day I got Halo so don't think it sad how I remembered :)
My story is:
I remember when I was young my mom was going to buy my dad an Xbox for his birthday - note it was an original Xbox. With it came four games: Amped, Project Gotham Racing, Enter The Matrix and Halo. I didn’t know much about Halo than, other than seeing several copies lined up in a store and one other though I cant say 100% that it was actually Halo; I remember my family dropped in to see some family friends and as soon as we walked in the door they got us to walk into their kitchen because they were watching some…Read more >

At first I felt a bit lame asking this and wasn’t sure if a blog was the best place to ask questions, but seeing that most of the blogs are users asking for help I now feel fine about it :)
So I’ve been part of Halo Fanon for a little while now and I’ve discovered how to use most features but there’s still a few I don’t know how to make. So if you can find the time please help by answering a few of my questions thanks:
1. How do I make a template for a series (they normally appear at the bottom of a page and is used to categorize games, novels and other media of a series). For example on Halo Nation and Halopedia games are categorized like this:
Halo CE • Halo 2 • Halo 3
Halo 4 • Halo 5 • Halo 6

I'll get right to the point. A few months ago, I was approached by a user (who I will not name for the sake of anonymity) who speculated to me the idea of having intervals where we the community would evaluate our administrators, and then either reelect those who are deemed adequate, or replace those who are not with other users more suited to the position. And I'm asking all of you for your thoughts, since I've weighed the pros and cons and I'm having a tough time deciding what I think.
First things first. No, you're not going to be taking a vote on this. I just want to hear everyone's thoughts to begin with. And since you can already guess what the general idea here is, I'll ask two things of everyone, one for our administrators, and one …Read more >
Ok before I start this I would like to apologize to everyone for the number of consecutive blog posts I make here, I think I do more work on these than my few articles. By chance, and segway, I actually wanted to ask for help so that I can rectify that issue.

I want to start by saying sorry for changing his name about 3 or 4 times, there are reasons (which I could blurt at you personally if you wish) but i'll just say that i'm keeping it at Russell. Anyway I have run into a snag while writing for him, I've got no one to interact with him.

We all know that Halo Fanon prides itself on high quality work. And we all know that we have long had a number of quality control policies to a standard of quality across the wiki, namely the infamous NCF policy. Although this isn't always effective 100% of the time, of course, this has still made for a significantly lesser number of 'bad' pages on Halo Fanon than on fan fiction sites which lack similar policies.
However, that does not mean we cannot continue to improve our policies. With the Halo 4 post-release boon of new contributors well underway, I feel this is a great time to streamline our quality control a bit and adjust our focus to dealing with the issues that are most predominant at present.
In the past, canon-friendliness has ser…Read more >

So I recently, while trawling the site I found Ahalosnipers article on Spartan II's available for expansion. Among common stuff was a set about Anton and Li.
Now i've always like Anton, and Li I suppose, so I figured that ding some work with them would be a good idea. However Ahalosnper warned me that making something were Anton and Li aren't vaporized may be unacceptable with this sites canon policies.
Ahalosniper's theory is plausible(ish), that Anton and Li (plus the elites) were teleported to a 'place of forunner origin'.
However it raises a lot of questions which is why I figured I should ask first if this would be an accepted idea.Read more >
Tell me how you think that was. If it was good or ok or lame. I know it was not lame. Also I made characters talk like they do in play so tell me if you prefer it that way. Example: Ultra Elite: " Take cover! ".Read more >
So I haven't been very good on being on here. I get the messages and have been meaning to update but I have been busy. Now that spring term has ended and I actually have a part-time summer job, I won't be on as often but I will try.

Feedback is welcome on my current wiki page, tell me how my writing is doing and if everything is in the right order in the Halo universe.

Since the community seems divided on the subject and there has been as of yet no real answer to how to deal with the issue, I've decided to bring my foot down on the subject of whether or not Noble Six, aka SPARTAN-B312, can survive the events of Halo: Reach.
In short: No.
For the long answer, let's start with the actual story. Particularly the last level of Halo: Reach.
As we know, the last level of Halo: Reach is Noble Six simply fighting off ever larger and more powerful waves of Covenant forces. It's clear this is intended to serve as a last stand, Noble Six's shining moment as a Lone Wolf. It's a neat level that does well to marry the plot and gameplay together (important in a, you know, game) and serves that purpose quite well.

Recently I have been putting a lot of work into my first major character, the sangheili Thyr 'Valum. The inital plan was to have him be an anti-Vadam goverment follower due to something Thel did to him a while ago. However recently I have started to queston whether that is in Thyr's character. He isn't inheritly ruthless, though pragmatic, and as a (sort of) representation of me (which is a bad thing to do) I don't really see him in that light.
I think the best thing I can think of doing is making him one of those misunderstood good guys but that is just one option.
Anyway any advice on this would be very much appreciated.Read more >
Ok folks Gerard here, just found out Halo 5 has been announced, well it was already announced... any way here's the teaser.

Got to say the trailer's fucking awsome and I'm looking forward to Halo 5. So what are your thoughts on whats going on?... Personally I think the poncho is just pointless, and soo 1973...
Hey, I was wondering if anyone could get me a picture of a Sangheili in Halo 3 wearing standard armor save an assault harness and holding a battle rifle with either a carbine or plasma pistol holstered. He should have blue armor, and the Mark of Shame should be his emblem, since I want this to be accurate of my character's position. The emblem should stick out, but not obnoxiously. Make it yellow or something, with no background.
This is for my article Xiphos 'Kakolo, by the way. I lack a bungie fileshare or Xbox Live, so I cannot get a picture of this for myself. Multiplayer can be used to achieve this. Halo reach, however, wouldn't supply the look I want for him, so it needs to be in Halo 3.
Any help would be much appreciated.

So its been announced that Steven Speilberg will be making a Halo television series for the next Xbox. I personally think that this will be amazing, as long as it may possibly be based upon either the origins of the Spartans, of making a Band of Brothers or The Pacific-style Halo series following a group of ODSTs or Marines fighting against the Covenant during the war.
What are your thoughts?Read more >
Before you ask, no, I'm not starting season 5 of Survival of the Fittest right now. As some of you may have noticed, Actene and I are working to finish up season 4 by the end of the month if possible, since we really have left it too long, and I'm quite adamant that it will not be another abandoned season. It's almost done anyway, so it shouldn't be too difficult. I hope you haven't all lost interest in the season, and if you have, oh well. It's my own fault for planning out such an ambitious length for the season.
Although I did end up losing season 4's momentum, I must say that I'm quite pleased with the outcome of what I do see. I received a fair amount of participants who have handed me enough characters to entertain myself and (hopeful…Read more >
I am searching for inspiration for my "fanon" I am writing located here: Halo: The Reckoning
I began to write the first chapter, but decided the chronology of those events would be more effective in a later chapter. I have the general concept of what I want to accomplish with the "new" chapter 1, but I need ideas on what exactly the events will be to accomplish those ideas.

Ladies and gentlemen.
In light of yesterday's events, both on the site and on the Irk, I think we need to come to a definite conclusion and make sure we set in stone site policy regarding the case of SPARTAN-B312's death. There is no mention of it in either our Rules or Canon Policy, but considering there are users both for and against surviving Noble Sixes, it needs to be addressed.
My own opinion falls with the against, but for that to mean anything, evidence needs to be given. Implicit evidence comes from Halo: Reach itself, that the ending cutscene clearly suggested Six's death. Halsey's eulogy following the cut-away from B312's last stand also heavily imply it. But be that as it may, the death itself was not explicitly shown, which was a…Read more >

The wiki developed into an almost unlimited fountain of creativity. Users working together as a community; we fought together, we laughed together, and …Read more >

It was once said that should Mankind ever face the threat of an alien onslaught that we would band together, fight as once against a common enemy.
