Hello Halo-Fanon community, I have noticed that many admins are concerned about their infoboxes disappearing by other users. What I found out is that almost any user, new and veteran, are able to change up the infobox entirely or maybe even delete it.
I have ran several tests on my own infoboxes and this is how you might rid yourselves of the migration thingamabob:
- Where it says:
Template type: Unknownjust select the
Designoption, as I have done with most of my infoboxes. Then refresh the page and the migration tool will be gone.
This has been a successful experimentation of mine and I hope it helps the community keep vandalism at bay.
Note: Other templates will need to go in there respective "Template type" categories.Read more >

First blog, eh? I couldn't get any other (brilliant) idea than this one (currently). Hello everybody, and welcome to my review of the critically-acclaimed Xbox exclusive of 2015, '.
My friend Dab started a weekly series of reviews of the games of the Halo series on the Halo Wiki. In the Halo 5 one, I went on to write a comment expressing my views on Halo 5... and ended up writing a review, or more like a half-review, half-opinion. So, I wanted to post the "review" here so you guys can get a better understanding of Halo 5: Guardians. And, I also used this as an oppurtunity to write my first blog post on Halo Fanon (there are very few options of writing blogs here).
The story, although amazing, has many plot-holes. For example, how's the Domain m…

Hey fellow Halo Fanonites!
We've got a great new community project coming your way. The Community Armour Project is a new project aiming to help you guys get the perfect picture for your Spartan.
With the release of Halo 5, we now have over 400 customization items, meaning the chances of getting your Spartan in the armour you want is real tough. To save you hours of grinding, we've come up with this handy project to help you get in touch with users that might have that armour you want unlocked, so they can help get you, and in turn you can help other members of community get the pictures they want.
Here on out, this blog will be the place to come to to discuss this project, or make requests. If you want to help out your fellow users, head ove…

Hello everyone, I guess I'm back. I apologize for my extended absence, I hadn't intended to go inactive following my retirement from the administration last January. But school, various other projects, and a recent vacation has kept me occupied for the last while. But for the time being I've returned, in what capacity we shall soon see. Now, since I've popped onto the irk a few times recently and been asked regarding season 5 of Survival of the Fittest, I thought I'd run an attendance check with the participants.
It's simple, really. If there are enough of you who are still around and game to continue the, well, game, then it's a definite yes on continuing. If not, then I will simply retire the season and declare the ship sunk with all hand…Read more >
Hello everyone, Brodie-001 here. Having recently acquired an Xbone and the Master Chief Collection, I'm willing to take screenshots from Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 for any users who require pictures of Spartans or Sangheili. That way those of you without an Xbox can have good pictures for your characters without having to resort to promotional pictures, concept art, or whatever fanart you can scavenge from Google images. I'll leave a gallery of pictures below for any to take.
Lists of armour permutations can be found here:

Please keep in mind that due to the MCC's limitations you cannot mix and match armour pieces as you could in tho…Read more >
Hello! I am Alpha Ranger.
I don't know a TON about halo. But I know things about it and I have a lot of halo games.
So about me... I am Alpha Ranger just call me Alpha :P and I like to write things. Usually on video games and things I like. Now I am going to do a actually fanon series. The series is called Darkness more information will be on it later. It will start probably in a week or two. I am not sure how often I will be doing episodes. I want people to read it and see if it is good. If people like it I will do them more often.
My fanon won't have characters from the main halo series. Or not all of them at least. I will be making new maps and new characters and ideas. It is more fun to me that way. I might go to maps that are actually in t…Read more >

Hola fellow Halo Fanoners!
As some of you probably know, I took a serious blow to the head and decided to add several dozen new MJOLNIR variants from Halo Online. A pretty stupid idea in retrospect, but I've started so I'll finish.
Now I've got plenty of armour variants, with little to no description, and I'm turning to you, the community, to contribute.
What will you get? You'll be cited as a contributor to that MJOLNIR variant, and get a +1 Ajax Respect Point, a commodity rarer than gold.
What am I looking for? Well, it pays to be familiar with my current MJOLNIR variants.
Each variant is not written for a specific and narrow view, but rather written as a list of features. These include software, hardware, sensors, armour design and power sup…Read more >

Okay, so there's a Hunger Games Simulator online, where you can enter names for each district, modify the setting slightly, and see what comes out. For this one, I allowed traps and muttations, and disabled alliances. Note that if the roster may seem somewhat random, I just basically thought of names as they came to me, which is why users suck as RansomTime are here. Anyways, without further ado, I present to you... The First Annual Halo Fanon Hunger Games! May the odds be ever in you favor!

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.
- Whoever is writing about themselves in the issue cannot make themselves god. Ther…

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…

If the covenant attacked right now would we able to make a good defense and push them back. I say yes on the ground cause we do have the firepower and to me our equipment is kinda pack more of a punch then we do then.

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.

Tell me how much you did or didn't like halo stories: elites episode 1. Reviews will always be made for halo stories episodes. You can also provide ideas for halo stories episodes.Read more >
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.

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 >

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.
