Hard to Explain in a Title Edit

Hi, --General "Marksman" Rogers 08:06, 18 April 2008 (UTC) here and im wondering how you can edit your user page like a real page. All i can edit are boxes saying where im from and such. I wanted to add links to a halo fanon story im making, but all i can do is put stuff in boxes.

Use the orange button that says "Use wiki userpage." -- Manticore (talk) 14:30, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

The Unknown skull on Halo 3 Edit

This skull is featured on the cortana level (You don't get an achievement for this by the way). When you get to the point were u have to destroy the high charity and run for your life, kill of the flood and then go down one of those organism paths back to the outer circle. You should see a raised platform which u can't access. Drop a deployable cover and jump on top of it. Then aim to jump up onto the platform. Once u have reached the platform, run along it until u come to a point where it juts out. There should be a skull towards the end of this platform. If not on this platform then keep searching on another one. When you find it you must carry it for the rest of the level. This is much easier with 2 people.

Can't get back box thing on top of the pageEdit

i got rid of it and i cant get it back, and now i cant vote for the rfa's and see the new stuff.please help!!

See MediaWiki:Sitenotice. -- Manticore (talk) 03:56, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Improvement Drive Article Edit

For the nest one, it has to be Xbox Live. Because at the moment, its just poorly written, too short, and nowhere near the potential it could be, given Halo's history with it. --Specops306, Kora 'Morhek 08:42, 28 April 2008 (UTC)


How do you have featured pictures and become the featured user?Spartan6 23:39, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Featured users are randomised, I would assume. --Specops306, Kora 'Morhek 03:11, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Tilt Skull Edit

i did everything everyone told me to and i cant get the tilt skull (the one on the cortana level) i climbed up there and the skull wasnt there. there was just a pile of bones. i was on normal difficulty.

A pile of bones? Are you sure you weren't looking at a skull? If you didn't start from the beginning, you won't get it. That's truly strange.Rookie 162 03:46, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

You have to start at the beginning of the level and it has to be on normal or higher difficulty.This comment was made by the user Halofan4life.

A question about campaign. Edit

If you play part of the Halo 3 campaign on co-op and some on solo, will it count as beating it?

Yes. It's just easier to brag if you do it yourself. The game won't care, though. --Dragonclaws(talk) 18:11, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Blog comments Edit

Why, in all blog comments, is there a red "do not" sign next to all posters' ranks? If you do not know what I am talking about, please visit any blog on this site and look at a user's name above a comment. To the right of that is their rank, and then the symbol I described. If anyone has an answer to this please share.1206326695 Halo2emblem funny Rookie162 "Holla!""commitment level" 02:12, 27 May 2008 (UTC)

campaign is so boring now Edit

Campaign is so boring now I can't be arssed to do it on a higher difficulty.

Anybody else feel the same way?

This isn't a blog page. You can start a blog about this. Hover your mouse above the Blogs link on the right-hand side of the page, and click on Create Blog Post. You should learn about talk pages before talking. This particular one is as a forum, to ask question and answer others' questions. You also need to sign your username every time you leave a message on a talk page. To do this, add four ~'s after your comment. 1206326695 Halo2emblem funny Rookie162 "Holla!""commitment level" 00:58, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Armor Edit

I got 820 gamerpoints in halo 3 and the game wont give me the security shoulders, what's wrong?

For some reason, the game doesn't exactly have a set gamerscore minimum to earn the Security shoulders. I got mine at around 700, while the article says differently. However, the article on Security shoulders does say that some gamers get the shoulders at different gamerscore values. I have a feeling it has more to do with which achievements you earn. Sorry that you haven't gotten them yet though, best of luck! (P.S. remember to sign your name on talk pages please, thanks)1206326695 Halo2emblem funny Rookie162 "Holla!""commitment level" 06:05, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Featured users huh? Edit

How do you get your name on the Featured User sidebar? Because I have seen many people with much less points than me, so I know it's not about points... From Skinr

I believe that there is a random element to it. I'm unsure of the exact mechanics of it, though I suspect it also depends upon how consistent your edits are also. -- Councillor Specops306 - Kora 'Morhek 01:50, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
It's purely randomised from Top Users/Weekly. -- Manticore (talk) 01:57, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Long yellow boxEdit

For about five hours (from when I wrote this) there has been the usual yellow banner across the top of my screen that is shown on any wiki (except for Halo Nation) that appears when you have a message. It says "You have new messages on Halo Nation". In go there, but I clearly have no new massages, and the banner won't go away. What can be done to get rid of this? It's very annoying (for lack of a better word). (And hopefully I put this message to the correct place). Anubis 10545 07:09, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

This shouldn't be appearing at all; Halo Nation new message notifications are only by email (known bug). -- Manticore (talk) 07:34, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Not sure where else to ask this...Edit

What happened to the Monobook skin? I don't see any options in the Preferences to change the skin. Zeldafanjtl 23:53, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Everyone should probably read thisEdit

Hello, I'm Atarumaster88, an administrator over on Wookieepedia. We've already had a big discussion about this over on Wookieepedia and there's ongoing brouhaha on it at the central Wikia, but everyone should be aware of some important changes Wikia is planning on making, with or without your approval. See this page for more details, also a Wookieepedia thread.

If there are staff/Janitors that spot any errors in my statement, please correct them and let me know. ;-)

Sound off on it, please don't A) Flame the staff. It might be amusing, but it's probably not and it accomplishes nothing. B) Make empty threats. Consider the bluff called. C) Misinterpret the issue. Read before you click that edit tab. And then read again and look at it from both sides.

  • I'll leave this place for the Halo Nation community to sound off. Atarumaster88 (Talk page) 14:11, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
What the hell is going to happen with this skin?! It's already bad enough, but adding adds that is going to royally screw the pages. And we CAN'T switch to monaco because of THIS skin! WHAT THE HELL WIKIA?! Grievous797

Meh. Who cares? It's simple enough to apply some custom CSS to hide the ads. Zeldafanjtl 17:33, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Yea, wikia screwed us over. They should have tested this on wookiepedia... or maybe uncyclopedia. The later would be hilarious. But if you think about it, some features are great. Board messages, profiles, blogs, I hold nothing against those features. Maybe a forum should be made to really get a community consensus about this. Pryo 'Zarkum Major-gr2 My COM My Work My Story 17:38, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

This will not be implemented on Halo Nation at the same time as the other Wikia wikis. We're still on a separate codebase (hence the lack of MediaWiki 1.12), so we'll receive the new scheme at a later date. So we, as a community, have some time to dispense appropriate information about ad blocking to all our contributors. -- Manticore (talk) 07:55, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Either ways, we cannot delay the inevitable. The horrible skin will be implemented soon. I guess we just have to bear with the humongous, stupid and ugly advertisements.H-107 Subtle Tank 08:51, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm fine with it as long as the ads aren't in the middle of the article and are fairly small, though I prefer no ads at all. HyperMan 356 12:48 July 2008


Do Halos 2 and 3 work on PCs?

VimesV 14:47, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

...Halo 2 works only for the Vista (though some said that you can make it work on Xp...). Halo 3 won't work for the PC. It will, based on prediction, be out for the PC at 2011...Animated Sig - H107SubtleTankCartographer 15:01, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Pictures Edit

I've noticed that most of the pictures on here are replaced with a picture of the McAfee logo (whatever that is). could it just be my computer, or is it a problem on Wiki's part?

I think that may just be your computer - I've never encountered such a problem before.The Admiral 1212237429 Rearadmiralinsignia 15:42, 17 June 2008 (UTC).

Halo does work on Pc if you got a Pc you can buy halo for the it. This comment was made by the user Halofan4life.

Do you think it means that there is a problom loading the picture, because it's really starting to annoy me.

Why are there kamakazi grunts. Edit

Well I herd that sometimes when a brute loses his armor he can go berserk, grunts can also

go berserk sometimes, but mostly they will get scared and run away. Some grunts with out

grenades will just run right into you. Some grunts are trained to commit suiside. You 

will know when you see one he will pull out 2 plasma grenades and yell yai yai yai yai.This comment was made by the user Halofan4life.

Uh, okay? Stop putting information for an article in talk pages, especially the Main talk page, and don't even think about putting it in a blog. Second, sign what you put in talk pages with three or four tildes (~). Thirdly, there's no need to space your lines. Finally, don't ask this kind of question here, go to a forum instead, or the talk page for grunts, and to answer your question it is merely for difficulty, and to add to how grunts are becoming more aggressive, using their cowardice as a weapon.1206326695 Halo2emblem funny Rookie162 "Holla!""commitment level" 16:11, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Private Military Corporations? Edit

I know there is no mention of them at all in the Halo universe. But dont you think its possible that they could be in it? Im not asking to make an article, that would be ridiculous, Im just trying to make a intresting point of discussion. Someone told me that PMC's dont exist in the Halo future, and I laughed at him. With aliens, terrorists, and rebels, a PMC would have a lot of work.--User:JohnSpartan117 20:56, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Wouldn't you rather make a blog or forum on this? You'd get much more of a discussion out of it. And it would be quite plausible for the UNSC to have contracted private military corporations to their aid, along with every mercenary available. It only makes sense that in the fight for humanity, that pretty much everyone would want to fight.1206326695 Halo2emblem funny Rookie162 "Holla!""commitment level" 02:15, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Im a newby! Edit

How do you put a picture in your identity? I mean, how do you put in a picture that always pops up by your profile name? A profile picture? For example, on the featured users' section. How would you get a featured image to go with your profile?

The picture you're talking about is called an avatar. To get one, first find a picture that you like, either online or on your computer. If the picture is online, you have to first save it to your computer. Then, go to your social profile, that's the one that has all of the buttons and shows your friends, awards, edit count, message board, and recent activity, as though that wasn't enough for you. There's a few tabs that have buttons like "Edit Profile" and "Upload Avatar." Guess what, the latter is the one you want to go to. there's a button there that says "Browse." Click on that and it will take you to your pictures on your computer. Find the picture you want and then submit it. Then press the Upload picture button and you've got your avatar! P.S. note the size restrictions just above the space.1206326695 Halo2emblem funny Rookie162 "Holla!""commitment level" 05:04, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Problem With PointsEdit

When I do polls, my profile doesn't get the points it should from doing them. I should have 200 points from polls, but I don't. Could somebody help?Edmonton guy 20:05, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Only mainspace edits earn points. And don't make stupid edits just to get points. Pryo 'Zarkum My COM My Work My Story 21:29, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
I don't think you read my question very carefully. I didn't mention edits once. I'm talking about poll votes. Your supposed to get points from them, but it isn't happening with me. I am getting points from editing. Edmonton guy 18:41, 22 June 2008 (UTC)
No, you do not earn points from polls. Go have a read of Help:User Levels. -- Manticore Fleet Admiral (talk) 06:17, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
