Hello, and welcome to Halo Nation, a fansite dedicated to the Halo franchise and its fictional universe! Halo Nation is primarily a wiki with a mission to document every aspect of the Halo series. However, Halo Nation is also home to a community of likeminded fans, dedicated to building the wiki and making it the best it can be. To that end, the site has many social features available, such as the forums, user blogs, message walls and the Discord server.
About the Wiki
A wiki is a website where users collaborate to create a detailed documentation of a particular topic. The crucial difference between an ordinary encyclopedia and a wiki, however, is that absolutely anyone can view and edit a wiki, for free. In essence, a wiki is simply a specialised online encyclopedia, maintained by fans of its topic.
For instance, the most widely known example of a wiki is Wikipedia. Unlike Wikipedia, however, Halo Nation exists to specifically document the Halo franchise. As a result, all information held within the confines of Halo Nation is related to Halo, either directly, or peripherally.
While visiting the site, Halo Nation asks that you follow the rules and policies that are in place here. The rules are designed to ensure that all users can happily and peacefully coexist on the website, as well as to prevent users from degrading the quality of the wiki through vandalism.
The site's rules can be found summarised here.
Editing the Wiki
Halo Nation is always on the look-out for new users, as editors are the lifeblood of the wiki. Anyone with an interest in Halo is welcome on Halo Nation, provided they are willing to abide by the rules. For newcomers looking to help out around the wiki, Halo Nation has a page containing useful tips to help them get started, which can be found here.
If you need help editing, FANDOM provides an array of useful help pages, which can be found at Help:Contents.
Halo Nation has a large collection of information pages that go into further in-depth about the site and its operation. If you would like to know more, one of the following pages should be able to answer your queries.
In addition, at the bottom of this page is a complete list of all official Halo Nation information, policy and help pages, in case the above pages didn't give you the information you need. If you still have unanswered questions, one of Halo Nation's administrators would be happy to help you. A list of admins can be found here.
