How is the logo for this wiki?--H*bad 01:44, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
Should there be a link from the main page to the Rules page? Darth mavoc
A little confused
For battles and stories and such, how are those decided? In other words, how is it decided who wins, who loses, and what the losses are? Hunter-113 01:55, 8 March 2007 (UTC)
In some articles, such as the Battle of Eridanus II, I only include the losses that I specified in my novels and then say "and many others" so there is room for others to build off of it. However, in other articles, such as Arizona III, I make up all the numbers (I based Arizona III on Venus and Earth, so those numbers are realistic). I might get a more informative planet template later.
Hey guys, this wiki seems like a very good idea.
Unfortunately, your logo is... kinda lame.
Don't really have any good graphics programs to help you out, maybe you should make this a project or competition or something.
Good luck with the site,

It seems like there are a lot of references to things (Sangehili, Assault Carrier, etc} that the casual person who is not on Halopedia would not understand. Is there some way to quickly link these pages to Halopedia pages to make it easier for fanfictions to be more easily understood by casual users? -ED 18:08, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
- Very true. People could add something like a see also page. Or they could add like a link to Halopedia. The other idea so that they don't have to leave the wiki, they just make a mini page.--H*bad 19:00, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
Actually, I am going to go through and add [[w:c:Halo: to a lot of stuff to link our articles with Halo Fanon, so don't bother with mini pages.

The Daily Edit
Ships only going 30,0000 kmh is very slow, as light goes 300,000 Kilometers a second. Reach is about 5 light years away from earth, so it would take a couple days to get from earth to reach as shown in the book so UNSC ships can go about 2.5 light years a day. coveant ships can have been shown to go 4 times that,so 10 light years a day.

Okay my character was deleted, no clue why. Please just restore my character, I worked on it for a month and there was nothing notcanonfriendly about it, other than his tag. His tag was used by another character, whom had 2 paragraphs for him, myne had like 12 sections. -User:Smokerules
Next time I suggest either changing the tag or making a SPARTAN-III. We have less then 10 SPARTAN-IIs left, yet 300 SPARTAN-IIIs that are free.
I'll field this question.
I went and reviewed your article.
And it sucked.
Big whoop if you have lots of writing, just because you have a keyboard doesn't mean you should type lots of irrelevant crap. You have repeatedly broken canon in your article and it its tiresome. Also you plagiriesed my character layout, aptly changing mental report to biography. Thief. --Ajax 013 23:04, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!
It is now the main actively developed Wikia platform. As a successor to Quartz, it comes with even more customizability - you can find out more on w:c:inside:Monaco Skin Customization, where you can also find out info about the new features and widgets available. I have taken the liberty of already creating your MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar, but you can customize it much further with more links.
An admin can set the default site skin via the skin section on Special:Preferences, or by editing MediaWiki:AdminSkin. If users wish to see another skin than the default, they can untick "See custom wiki skins (recommended)" on the same page.
We really want wikis to move on to Monaco partly because it's more awesome than Quartz and Monobook and partly as it is where the bulk of our resources are currently aimed :) Please report any problems or questions with Monaco [http://inside.wikia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?
- If there are major objections to the change, it is okay to change it back, but you must be forewarned that Monaco is "Wikia's default skin", and you may miss out on future developments. My apologies for being hasty with the change.
- LOMI HQ - I'm confused, I kept it as "Gaming", but moved to the monaco version of it. Ajax, how is it bugged? Kirkburn (talk) 18:31, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
My apologies, I meant right when I was getting used to Quartz, not Gaming. And it wasn't a complaint, merely a statement. --MCPO James DavisLOMI HQI here your criesMay your works be honorable

Maybe its just me, but for example, on here I see the title lines spreading across the whole page. Along with that search is borked (er, its got a name, but the list of possible answers for a search appears in drop down box, thats not on Monaco, something i know personally both i and other members use quite often) and also some of the new menus are abit messed up. Maybe it just needs some tweaking but those are messed up. For now, until those are fixed or addressed, i think its better for gaming to remain on. I remember hwne i saw Wookiepdia start using Monaco and there was alot of things out of placed, moved, borked and generally, i think its better if the Admins take a talk over this. <Death to Heroes>[The Damned] [The Lost][The Forgotten]|Deus Ex Ajax
- Monaco does not affect the content area. Search suggest is enabled on Monaco, so I'm not sure what could be happening there. How are the menus messed up? Note they can be edited via MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar. Kirkburn (talk) 17:46, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Main page layout update
Hullo! I am Kirkburn, your friendly local Wikia Gaming Helper!
Hopefully you have read about the skin and ad changes at Wikia's New Style on Central Wikia. If not, I hope you'll have a look.
One of the changes is a block of two ads on each main page. It's possible that they won't always show up, but to ensure your main page continues to work properly when they do, you need to update your main page column formatting code with new column tags.
I have drafted a main page using the new tags on User:Kirkburn/Dev which I hope you can take a look at - feel free to make a copy and edit it. Though the layout may seem restrictive at first, there really is a fair amount you can do with them - for example see these customized main pages - Muppet Wiki, WoWWiki, FFXIclopedia. You may want to chat with your wiki community about what direction to take with a new main page.
If you encounter any problems with the new tags, please let us know.
- Maybe relocate the Search Box to the middle between those two Sections. Also, seeing that the Ad Box is smaller now (Thank God), we might be able to fit something under that area...Little_Missy - 12:28, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
- Here's what I made changes to. The changes aren't much...just a relocation and adding the Featured Article.Little_Missy - 13:51, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm liking the changing logos and the featured article box, very elegant.
Something's wrong...There's loads of templates at the side, and there's no images.....Weird...Help?
I'm having some trouble. I would like to upload media but I can't figure out how to... any answers or suggestions?
I'm a noob when it comes to this special formatting stuff so can anyone tellme how I can make one or am I too crappy a writer to have one?
- Go to Special:Preferences and go to the signature box, you can customize it there. -Two-Six-NinerCross-ComCSV
another nooby question but do you need a template in order to place your sig?
and if so how do you make a template? hello? spartan-08blam!
Create as so:
Template:YOURUSERNAME. Insert the codings there. Once you've finished, whenever you want to use the sig template, just type in as so:

how do you change your page
are they going to finish halo the movie because i heard it would come out 2008,2009,or 2012
How should I write my Fanon?
I am having trouble woreking out how to write fanon. Should I write them as stories, like in the halo novels, or descriptions of the events, not including personal thoughts or speech? Any replies would be greatly appreciated!
- As far as I know, both work. When creating an article, make it an article like on Halopedia, but there are stories as well. Usually a story has Halo:So-and-so in its title. Watch as I BURN your worlds. Scream in the void... No one hears.

Great stories that take place after the war.
These stories are really good you should talk about these stories with Bungie because these stories can be what happens after the Human-Covenant War. Bungie (if it happens) could talk to microsoft to turn these stories into a Halo novel or a video game because like I said there really really great.
You have the UNSC Navy ship pictures so they don't need to think up some so that makes there job easyer. Those pictures are so awosome. Don't care if this P.S. was dumb I just had to write it thats all.

Regarding some rules
Although not written in the rules article, I have been told crossovers are not allowed , and of course, I have found none. I am just wondering why? Also I would like every rule that exists written in the rule section.
Another question: There seems to be only user created characters, not many expanded stories on existing ones, for example there are tons of fanfictions revolving the ultimate fate of John 117 on other sites, but there is no such thing in here, is it against the rules to expand an official character history?
And, personally, please take no offense, I think it is dumb to not allow crossovers, since there are many articles that are just characters form another game or movie, with different names and somewhat 'alternate' stories, so to speak, and it has to be that way because crossovers are not allowed. It is a fanfiction site afterall, why not allow people to just write as long as it is well written, canon friendly and connected to halo in every possible way as the ORIGINAL RULES states on the rule section. If you think crossovers are not creative, well, I think the creative part of it will be to see how the author manages to merge the universes while staying canon friendly. of course there could be dumb things like: A space-time vortex opened while installation 04 exploded and Johnson was sent to the dimension of Battlestar galactica all while Wesker plotted to invade the halo universe to steal a flood sample to augment the Urorboros!, but don't tell me that all of the 11 380 articles are of extreme quality, even if my work sucks, maybe someone out there will create a very original gap between halo and another thing.

Coloring And Code
Excuse me, but I have forgotten (as I never once used it) what the coloring code is in HTML, Im trying to make my 1st ever custom signature and wish to color code it. I remember something about a bunch of F's being Black but that it... perhaps you could put info on that on Help:Signature ?? For now Im going to dig around and try to find my copy of Begining Programming For Dummies book out and see if I can gain a knowledge there... Oh! And How do I link something but have it have a differant name than the Artical? My Artical titles are pretty specific and therefore long, how do I shorten it down?

Actually, the Help:Signature you linked is by Wikia and not by us. So, I think you have to ask them to include it. If you want a list of HTML colours, see here. Additionally, if you need any help constructing a signature, you can ask me. :) - 5əb'7aŋk(7alk) 08:37, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Are there standards for this website? I have noticed that a lot of the ships 'designed' by people are from Star Wars. Seriously, you can't copy off of Star Wars, it's just wrong. I am a fan of both Halo and Star Wars, and I am all for creating new things on this site, but do not copy from other Science Fiction franchises. Adapt with significant structural changes, maybe, but at least give credit to the creators.
184.108.40.206 17:26, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
The Standards on this site are outlined in the Rules section. Furthermore, articles that do not meet the standards in that section are tagged with a 'Non-Canon Friendly' template, and then state reasons for their NCF'ness on the Talk Page, so (hopefully) the user will make changes. If changes are not made, Administrators can go in and move the article to namespace, meaning it is used to "User:<insert name here>/Article name". Hope to have cleared stuff up.
Do you know how there is a box on the side of a character's page and it shows infomation like their DoB, Rank and age. How do you do that?
