  • But of all the things they did right can you guess what my favorite has always been?

  • Hi Dab, I'm trying to make screenshots of characters in Halo Nightfall but am having a huge problem. The screenshot protection.

    For example, the body of Rowan Daoud in ONI: Trade Barriers. When I watch the episode on the xbox one the function for screenshots is turned off. When I watch them in the Halo Channel app on the xbox one and use print screen, the screen turns black. When I use a program like Lightshot, the screen still turns black. Even when I change the key binding to for example @ instead of print screen, the screen turns black. It seems almost impossible :( Our pages could really use some images, but it seems we cannot get those. Really annoying. Do you know something more on this subject?

    • I found images for Rowan Daoud, Christian Ramsay, Laura Daoud and Brynn Morad on Halowaypoint, so that's a start :)

  • Hello Dab. You may not know who I am right now, but I know you well. Ok. Maybe not that well. Anyway, I was wondering if there is anything I could do to help here. Even if I may not be the best loremaster or lorefinder, I can help with finding pictures for pages, things like that. If you agree, I'd be thankful.

    PS. This is Reff.

    • Hey,

      You're welcome to pitch in if you like :)

      If you want to get images, Halo Wars 2 would be a good place to start, as we're pretty low on images from it. I didn't get around to uploading those images you sent me on Discord because I've been busy with exams for the past couple of weeks, so you can upload those if you like.

      Just remember to follow our image naming scheme: "<initials of game> <type of image> <image content>-<number (if necessary)>.png". For example, if I uploaded a screenshot of the multiplayer map Rift, I might call it "HW2 Screenshot Rift-1.png", or if I uploaded a transparent render of the Blisterback, I'd call it "HW2 Render Blisterback.png". Unfortunately, we don't have a page detailing this yet, but I'd be happy to clarify if you need me to.

      Don't hesitate to let me know if you need help getting started, or anything.

  • Hi Dab, I have new factual updates to add to the Halo 6 page, but it is locked off from normal members. A look at http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Halo_6?action=history will show that most of the page's facts and significant contrubitions were added in and referenced by me. Would it be possible for me to be allowed to edit the page again?

    • No problem. If you find any other sources that you think should be added, just let me know, and I'll add them.

  • Hello there Dab. I’m sure you are aware that this wikia’s automated messages (The one recieved upon a user’s first edit) are customized. If you are familiar with customizing this message, I would greatly appreciate for my own wiki and I believe a wiki I moderate might appreciate an upgrade from Fandom’s standard message. If you are unaware about how to customize this, please direct me to a poweruser that IS familiar with this.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    Or night.

  • Hi Dab,

    I just slacked this link to a colleague and discovered there's someone abusing the meta tags in the header field.

    http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Samuel-034

    Could this be investigated and rectified?

    I believe it's only an isolated incident.

    Cheers

    • Hey,

      Thanks for pointing this out to me. I believe I've isolated the problem. Back on December 18th, a user vandalised the page by replacing most of its content with just "nigerian" over and over again. Although an admin was able to undo the edit within a minute of it being made, it seems that for some reason the meta tags didn't update along with it (I presume the meta tags are automatically updated when the page is edited, because we don't have any manual control over them).

      I'll edit the page now to see if that fixes the issue. If it doesn't work, I'll contact FANDOM to see if they can sort it out.

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    • Alright, I've spoken to a Kirkburn, a FANDOM staff member, and he's forced the page to regenerate the meta tags. The vandalism should be gone now.

      Thanks again for pointing this out!

  • Hi Dab,

    Not sure if posting it here is smart, so if not, please delete my message when possible, but I noticed for some time now that under the My Tools link, I have access to the Batch Delete. I've never used it as that's probably a admin-only ability (and i'm not the type of guy to misuse something like that :)) but I just wanted you to know the ability is there for me. In case more people may have the ability without the team knowing. I don't have any special rights yet, right? Anyhow, lemme know your thoughs!

  • Hey Dab The page Halo Legendary Crate/Data Drops is spazzing out on me. Every time I go to the page I get logged out then when I go to a different page I get logged back in.

    • Weird. Try resetting your browser's cache, which forces the browser to redownload the entire web page. If you use Firefox, that's CTRL+F5. If you use another browser, you'll have to Google how to do it.

  • Morning, Dab1001!

    There is a minor problem with the article "Pillar of Autumn". On the top of the article, it says:


    "There was only one ship"- Thel Vadam(ee)


    "One? Are you sure?"- Prophet of Regret 


    Actually, it was the Prophet of Truth who said that, not Regret.

    The reason I'm bringing this matter to your attention is that I didn't see an edit icon anywhere, and since you are an administrator, I believe you could fix this.

    I apologize if I was not entirely clear on the subject.


    - From a still anoymus user.
