Why doesn't it have a bot flag? It seems to work fine and it is flooding the recent change menu.

You are contributing to this site, what is the occasion?
When you are actually contributing to this site, please do so thought-out. I was withholding that delete while in discussion with the creator.
When you actually trying to help and delete pages, first make sure no pages link to it. You should know that...

Video on the mainpage Edit
Hi Forerunner! I'm Mark, from Wikia's Community Development Team. I had a look on the wiki's amazing mainpage, and noticed that it missed something. Even though the boxes look very awesome, I think it looks a bit bland without any media on it. I'd therefore like to propose that we add a video to the mainpage, to spruce it up a bit.
Not only does a video make the mainpage much more interactive and better looking, it also shows users that we've got the very best, up-to-date content on the Halo universe, Halo 4 in this case. What do you think? Drop me a message on my talk page! Cheers, Mark (talk) 18:17, March 5, 2012 (UTC)
- Exactly! It doesn't have to be a big video at all, a small box like Resident Evil has will work, with a short description below it. Mark (talk) 18:32, March 5, 2012 (UTC)
i got kick banned cuz i trolled peeps just once, saying is was a 343 member now i can't join chats sad face.
Really Big Mistake I madeEdit
hey i was kicked out of chat because someone didn't like my opinion on my little pony: friendship is magic
Re: Re: Watch outEdit
Thats correct, they make such small changes to confuse the authorities, and making them ban a user who is actually not a vandal.
Hello, as you can see, I'm Valkyrie3. I've come to tell you about a moderator who obviously shouldn't have become one.
Evodvi. I started not 2 days ago and she's already kickbanned me for NO REASON AT ALL. I request that you take away her moderatorship, or give her a talk, because this kind of unfairness will not stand.
Valkyrie3 20:45, April 8, 2012 (UTC)
Please keep that thing under control, we don't need any links to the Resident Evil wiki. See my latest delete log to see what Forebot did...
Greetings from Gundam Wiki Edit
Salutaions Forerunner. I am Gaeaman788, a bureaucrat over at Gundam Wiki. Have you been having recent problems with User:Paul Dy? I gave him a life ban at Gundam Wikia for trying to insert his nonsense fanfiction into pages, so I'd suggest you do the same over here to prevent more vandalismGaeaman788: admin on G-Wiki 00:40, April 23, 2012 (UTC)

admin abusing powerEdit
hello, i am possiblemicrobe, admin SergeantUltra has been abusing his powers by kickbanning users for made up reasons, he reported me for things i did not do, i would like to be un-banned and for something to be done about this admin before it gets serious, i have already heard that he banns multiple people for the same reason, something must be done —This unsigned comment is made by Possiblemicrobe (talk • contribs) .

Hi I'm trying to remove this photo, I uploaded the wrong image - http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/File:334nga8.png
This is regarding the Resident Evil Wiki. I made a major mistake on the Wiki, which led to you blocking me. However, if you would be kind enough to hear me out, I would be greatly appreciative, even if you dont unblock me.
With the Zombie page, I made a major mistake, but I didn't mean to delete the entire page. I tried to make a small edit on the page because there was a mistake and thought it might help out if I made this edit. But, for some strange reason, it deleted the entire page. I don't know why it did this, or what happened, but it did. I apologise for this. I can't replace the page, nor can i make you change your mind, but i hope you will have read this and thought about this problem.I promise, I would have never tried to edit the page if it would lead to the complete deletion of the entire page.
Anyway, I gotta go. Just tell me that you'll think about it and, again, I'm sorry for the whole situation.

Severe Chat SpammersEdit
The following users were severely spamming the chat earlier:
so severe that I had to use the imageshack uploader because the Wikia uploader would have taken far too long:
I ban from the chat would be very helpful, as their racial abuse and spam was highly disrupting and disobeying the most obvious of chat rules. The accounts seem to have been made for this purpose, and this purpose only, so I don't believe they deserve to be allowed to edit the Wiki either, in fear of vandalism.
P.S. I have sent a copy of this to all admins for quicker response.
Can ya help me?Edit
Okay. the other mods and admins say you did the "Welcome to HN HQ" thing. how do you do it?
Admin Demotion ProposalEdit
I wrote up a proposal for the removal of Sniperteam82308's Administrative privaliges, and it has been running for a few days so far. I thought I should let you know, just incase you hadn't noticed. If you could read the proposal and give some feedback, and possibly a vote (unbiased of couse), that would be great.
- One does not simply ignore a proposal for Admin demotion, Forerunner. You'd be wise to take the time to read T3CH's nomination.
I think it’s safe to say they majority has spoken, when will the next step be taken?
Forerunner Can I make my Races page?

"sine" checkmark and your profile Edit
I noticed we have a checkmark while editing called "sine". After inquiring about it, I learned that it is used to sign a user's signature. In that case, wouldn't "sign" be more appropriate than "sine"? On an unrelated note, your profile page has been taking me a long time to load and shows this message for me in your "Articles Made" section:
The DPL extension (version 1.8.9) produced a SQL statement which lead to a Database error.
The reason may be an internal error of DPL or an error which you made,
especially when using DPL options like titleregexp.
Query text is:

Halo Nation:Chat PolicyEdit
The Chat Policy has become slightly outdated, and users still utilise loop-holes in the system. I have taken the courtesy of drafting a revised Chat Policy. Most of the updates are minor such as rule ten; whilst swearing isn't necessarily a bad thing, I think it would be better to keep it too a minimum as it creates an unsightly atmosphere. I also shifted the rules up one number, as after the removal of the "corruption" rule, it left an illogical gap in the numbers.
The major update that I added was a new rule, rule 19. Rule 19 allows for Moderators to step in and punish users who are sending abusive messages, or vile images to other users. Whilst the block button can be utilised, it is a bit too late to help undo the damage the message or image it has caused. Users should not be allowed to think they can hurt and harass members of Halo Nation just because it was in PM.
I have sent this message to all the bureaucrats. I hope you can take the time to read through the revised rules and agreed that the updated version would be a helpful update to the Chat Policy.
Halo Nation:Chat PolicyEdit
Hello again guys (and Grizz),
I'd like you to ignore my last message as I have now revised the Chat Policy once more. The chat policy has been updated with more clear and concise rules, I have also closed up some loop-holes users have been using, and added a few extra rules that I believe will benefit the chat completely.
I am very eager to press that the changes to the chat ethos will be negligible, and users need not worry about losing their precious domain. However, the new rules allow for Admins and Mods alike to pick up the stringency of the rules should the need arise. We were 'attacked' by Nukapedia today, of which membrs came on and purposefully made the chat a difficult place to be in. The current rules prevented us from acting, and the Admins from Nukapedia seems to endorse the action of their members and even joined in themselves. Apparently they believe that they have more rights that moderators on this Wiki, even coming on the chat and demanding the the reasoning for a user's ban several weeks ago.
The newly revised rules make it more difficult for trolls whilst maintaining fairness. But I digress. The new revisions have been posted here: Halo_Nation:Sandbox. I hope they are too your liking, and hope you agree that they should be implemented.
I hope a hasty response will be met, I am eager to see your opinions :)
Halo Nation Visual ChangesEdit
I'm guessing from the upload log you're the one who has been changing the HN theme? The choice in backgrounds are nice, however there seems to be problem with the fill of the website, which makes it impossible to read talkpage material.
Also, some of the backgrounds don't fill the screen, such as the Halo 3: ODST ones.
But still, the idea is good. Just a few rough spots to iron out ;)
Hi thanks for the concerns I did not know that there wea a wikia for Halo Fanon so you may deleate those pages. But I do think that the edits and photos I am posting are pretty decent. Anyway I do look forward to working with everyone and now I'm really excited for the Halo Fanon Wikia. If you could please send me link.
What have you done with the background on here? It is a different one every time I switch sites... Please change it back to normal, also you could just delete the links to all the old pages (like the ODST image).
Either way, some 'randomizer' is far from the greatest thing to have.
- Would you also be so kind to look into the glitch on the main page, I have already contacted wikia about it, but no responds so far. I mean the missing slider...
Yeah the background is still glitched. It will randomly show a flash of a pic of the Master Chief before going back to the old background. And the word "undefined" pops up in random corners of the screen, which I'm guessing might have something to do with this. Grif was here (talk) 13:16, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
- I never uploaded a picture of John, and I protected the images I used just in case they were Goatse'd. And a randomizer is not a glitch, anyway. The MediaWiki must be confused and showing us earlier versions of it.-- Forerunner 14:41, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
If you could block him, that would be great. Thanks.
Continuing Deconstructive Edits Edit
The user User:HaloRacing343 has continued to make more and more deconstructive edits on a variety of pages. He also continues to upload "new versions" of photos by downloading them and reuploading them back on to the same photo page. File:Arbiter_23.jpg is a good example of this. He has already been warned by both Wilc0 and yourself for various things, and users including myself have had to continually undo and fix most of his edits. While I am unsure if his actions are malicious or just poor judgement on his part, he continues to be a problem and continues to have a detrimental effect on the wiki. Grif was here (talk) 21:40, July 18, 2012 (UTC)
A small request Edit
In the Halo Nation chat there are some users that have their own emote. I would like to have mine too. Is there any special requirement to create it? Please let me know in my talk page.
Thanks, Galaxy left a FOOTPRINT (talk) 23:20, July 18, 2012 (UTC)
Video Game OlympicsEdit
Hola. I recently contacted Wilco about a promotion that Wikia is currently interested in running. As you can see here, it is a promotion for the Video Game Olympics. He and others seemed to be in favor of the idea, I just want to make sure that I also have a bureaucrat on board with the project before doing it. - Wagnike2 (talk) 15:25, July 19, 2012 (UTC)
Cutter daughter? Edit
Turret Pic Edit
Here's a wonderful pic of a Machine Gun Turret from Halo 4. I'm not sure which version of MGT is in Halo 4 (I checked but I couldn't figure out, probably doesn't help that I'm tired :P ), so I refrained from posting it on any page. If you can figure out which kind it is, can you please add it to the appropriate page, and add that page to the Halo 4 page. Here is the MGT Pic and here is the video from 343.
Grif was here (talk) 11:45, August 9, 2012 (UTC)
My apologies, sir Edit
hello just wondering are you this sites overseeer.
- When something is decided in chat that involves the site, I'd like to know it! This will most likely also be true to other admins.
- I am moderately active on HN because of Halo Answers and please take a look at my bot to see my activity.
Sgt D Grif and Halo4master Edit
Two of your chat mods are abusing their admin privileges. Earlier I was banned simply for viewing goings on inside that chat room and warning them that further abuse of their chat mod privileges would result in reports being filed to Wikia. User:Great_MaraMessage 03:17, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
- The users this evening were banned from chat after partaking in a chat invasion and refusing to leave. And Karl was present during all of this, so if there was abuse of privileges, he would have surely taken action. Grif was here (talk) 03:36, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
- Taking a look into the chat room is not grounds for kicking or banning and IS a violation of admin privileges. And I did not say a single word until the second time I was kicked through Sgt's abuse of abilities. I was simply looking into the complaints people were voicing against your chat and needless to say, I can't say I was disappointed. It would have been one thing to kick and ban if I was causing a stir but simply being present is not grounds for either. What if that had been a new user and you had decided to go on a kicking spree? Needless to say this is not the way admin tools were intended to be used and at this point it simply looks like you're trying to stamp out evidence of your misuse.

10:05 Vidmas7er Read our rules, Great.
Along reading your rules, nowhere does it state that looking into Chat itself is a violation. However, there is this: Specific examples of abusing Moderator rights:
- Kickbanning a user for differences in opinion, whilst not breaking chat policy.
- Kickbanning a user without evidence of the user breaking chat policy.
- Kickbanning a user without reason.
- Banning a user from Chat due to being blocked at the Wiki (see rule 25).
- Kickbanning a user due to a request from a different user. For example, a Moderator may not kick an innocent user because a friend told him to. User:Great_MaraMessage 04:04, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
- Once again, simply entering the chatroom isn't being disruptive and isn't a blockable offense. Ergo, Sgt D Grif and Halo4master kicked and banned without due reason. User:Great_MaraMessage 19:22, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
hey Forerunner, you know the logo buton things that appear on top of an artacle's page? i just uploaded this one you could use for anything relating to the Forward Unto Dawn mini-series heres the link to it: http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/File:FuD_logo.png

Twitch TV Embed Interest?Edit
Hey there Forerunner
My name is Jorge and I'm on Wikia's Community Development Program. I've posted a few blogs here on the wiki and you may have spotted me on chat once or twice. This time I actually want to reach out to gauge your wiki's potential interest in embedding some Twitch TV content. To that end, I've also contacted Leo Fox and Ultra Force admins.
To give some background, Wikia is interested in working with Twitch to get some native embeds for interested wikis. Twitch provides live-streaming of games, from simple lets-plays to massive tournaments and competitive events. Embedding could allows users to easily find streaming content or get together to chat about particular events. If the wiki is interested, you could also have you very own wiki channel/group to stream content to users, make your own show, etc.
Do you think this is something the Halo wiki community might be interested in? If so, how would you like to use it (home-page embed, its standalone page with just links or an actual embed? something else? Producing your own show? Etc.) Either way, let me know your thoughts by leaving a message on my talk page. Also, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
Pelican and Phantom Easter Egg Edit
The page Pelican/Phantom_Easter_Egg appears as a subpage of Pelican due to the slash in it's name. So I was thinking that the page should be renamed to something such as "Pelican and Phantom Easter Egg" or something equally descriptive without the slash, (perhaps "Flyable Pelican and Phantom Easter Egg" so that it's a bit more clear). But before I do so, I just want to make sure I have approval before I change the page and associated easter egg template. This is the best sig I can make (talk to Grif) 07:21, September 28, 2012 (UTC)
Contact Sparky Edit
Thank you for taking part in this years Halloween contests. Here is your ward to show your participation, simply copy and paste the following code anywhere on your profile, and show it with pride!
A while back you made a comment the reason why you won't use BC and most likely A.D. because it offends non-Christians my question to you is why is it 2012, it's because 2012 years ago Jesus Christ was born that is the only reason why we have the current date so you can take BC and A.D. off but you are still counting backward and forward from his birth and you can't change that. I guess you can use the Hebrew dating system their current date is 5773, or better yet the Muslim calendar and there year is 1443 AH. I'm not here to argue with you but do you see my point.thor10780 (talk) 05:40, December 2, 2012 (UTC)Thor10780
- That was a very long time ago and I was responding to an administrator who pretended to be offended, himself. No, based on current evidence, Jesus was born somewhere between 7-2 BCE; a five-year opening due to disagreements in the four gospels considered canon by western churches. The BCE/CE system remains at the same number as the approximated Christian dating system only for convenience and because the Christian Gregorian Calendar was designed to be in-line with the Earth's orbital period of approximately 365.25 days (minus eleven precious minutes to differentiate from the Julian calender). The Hebrew Calendar was known for being different across the world, with the Qumran calender only being 364 days, with leap-days added either irregularly or not at all - the variance in the same calendar would make dating unsuitable. The Islamic calendar is at 354-355 days, making it incompatible with the internationally-used Gregorian calender, and leading to problems regarding seasonal changes and agriculture. As such, a calendar length based on agriculture is much more reliable than one based on religious practices, as it can be understood by the climate an approximate month. So, in summary, Pope Gregory's calender was both suitable for the scientific community (eg. climatology) and was internationally used by non-Christians, already (what with all the missionary stuff). Of course, you can always try the Holocene calendar, which just adds ten thousand years onto the Gregorian year to show an arbitrarily-lined begininning of the Holocene epoch.-- Forerunner 16:05, December 2, 2012 (UTC)
Alpha Test InvitationEdit
Hey there Forerunner,
So Wikia is going to be holding some tests next week for an App we are working on and wanted to invite a select group of admins from some wiki communities that might be interested. To participate, however, you must own or have access to an iPad and a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Of course this is, 100%, completely optional - so no worries if you would rather abstain or do not own the game and/or an iPad.
If you qualify and you are interested, visit this page (http://www.wikia.com/Video_Games/Lizzunchbox) and sign-up using the google doc form. Note: This form won't be live until Monday @ 10:00am PST. Let me know if you have any questions!
Game Guide App CurationEdit
Wikia is excited to launch our Game Guides app very soon. The app features access to tens of thousands of wikis and their excellent content. As a popular wiki with a treasure trove of information, we think the Halo wiki would be a great candidate for one the first curated games on the app! But first, we need your help. The Game Guide apps thrives on excellent categorization and a little bit of admin curation. Visit this page to learn more about curating your presence on the Game Guide app: http://preview.mira-test.wikia.com/wiki/Help:GameGuide.
If you have any questions or need assistance curating the content for the app, please let me know and I will happily help you organize it. Just leave me a message on my talk page!
How to submit a custom UBX to the database Edit
Hello Forerunner, I created a UBX for my own profile but I think it would fit in the Halo Music UBX templates page.
My question therefore is, how to add it to the templates...
I left the same Image and article of Vol 1., as the picture is almost the same and the article is for both OST Volumes.
What do you think?
Don't worry, it's solved ;) Greets,
