M45 Mortal Dictata VerificationEdit

This is what I have to verify that the M45 is in Mortal Dictata, Halo: Mortal Dictata, "Chapter 6", pg. 177. Can you tell me where exactly I edit this into the page in source mode. Thanks. Circulating Peace (Talk) 23 Oct. 2014

You should just turn off the visual editor. Just go to "Preferences"->"Editing"->"Editing experience" and select "Source editor" in the drop-down menu.--Spartacus Talk 17:53, October 24, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the welcome! - Tempest's Wrath

What do you think you're doing?Edit

Just to bring it to your attention, you do realize that you just undid my edit, and after I undid your edit, you protected the Forerunner page. You may have protected the page due to an edit war, but that page is a complete mess, and needs to be improved badly. What do you think you are doing? Did you not see my addition to the talk page, in which I explained how the Forerunner page was in a complete mess and needed to be improved? I came to Wikia to try it out, maybe help out a bit in some articles, write some articles, but one thing I have come to realize is that some administrators are just absolute robots. Not all of them, but some. I know I haven't even talked to you yet on this wiki, but I posted to the talk page of the Forerunner article about what I was planning to do to improve the article, and how I was planning to do it. On my post on the talk page I said I was going to use the MLA citation format, although I really meant the Wikipedia citation format. Better yet, I also said that if anyone had any questions or comments about what I was going to do, that they should post on the Forerunner talk page or my own talk page. Nothing has happened yet. Thank you.Chairmanprescott6179 (talk) 01:22, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

Reverting editsEdit

Do not revert my edits again. I made those edits on the Forerunner page for two reasons: to fix the reference for the physiology and armor sections, and to MAKE THE ARTICLE A LOT BETTER. Your incessant and annoying reverts are continuing to drive me insane. Stop with the reverts. This is your only warning.Chairmanprescott6179 (talk) 00:31, November 8, 2014 (UTC)

Vertigo and VortexEdit

I noticed that you edited those two pages after I added videos to them - just double checking if I did something wrong

All our makers once held dear [Alexandria before the fire] (talk) 03:11, November 9, 2014 (UTC)

Stop it nowEdit

You better listen to me, boy, what you are doing is beyond uncalled for. Your actions are mindless and rampant, and they're actually costing this wiki. I'm trying to edit the Forerunner page, and your either undoing my edits, changing my edits, or locking pages. It was just annoying at first, but now it's driving me insane. I've had to deal with too many issues with administrators and their actions against me that were just plain useless, time wasting, ineffective at solving the problem, and just plain mind numbing. It is absolutely incredible that this is happening yet again, and the fact that this interaction has to happen is mind blowing. In fact, it doesn't really have to happen in that you didn't need to change my edits on the Forerunner page or lock the page itself. I think it would be better if you just cut it out, and unblock that Forerunner page.Chairmanprescott6179 (talk) 23:22, November 9, 2014 (UTC)

Both of you are being ridiculous. Haloprov's uncommunicative edit-warring and unwarranted protecting may be counter-productive and unbecoming of an admin, but this temper tantrum you're throwing is not helping anything either. Halopedia is currently the superior wiki, and if no one communicates about beneficial edits or about reversions of edits, Halopedia will always be superior. -- Vektor0 (talk) 23:49, November 9, 2014 (UTC)
Haloprov, please unlock the forerunner page. I'm sure blocking this guy for a day or two will make him stop. It's concerning to have such a high traffic page locked because of one user. This guy said it himself, he has problems with administrators. Just a suggestion.

Thank You,  :P Hi ...Pinkie pie spy by mrcbleck-d5hqft3Lord Edward...ThunderboltComms KIAs  

It's clear I need to input my voice into this: Chairmanprescott, while you may have see my edits on the Forerunner as both "mindless and rampant", I'm editing the page to match what over the 7,000 other pages have similar to it, if it's either the citation, layout, or wording of it. You will also add in minor detail to mask your rewrites if I undid them. Eventually, over 20 edits from mixed editing between me and you have been going on for about a week, and usually I'll protect the page for edits wars. The first message I sent you on the 25th of July was about your multi-edit, subsequently about the Forerunner page, you replied with an unexpected lengthy response, and talked about that you don't have an easy time with many admins in the past, which you state multiple times in other messages. I do have a rather lack in communication when someone replies to my talk because I don't need to reply to ever message when someone work got undone. I used to reply to many messages but it got tedious and time-consuming, so I favor to not to message users because of that issue. If the issue is a misunderstanding or a general user un-favor, I'll respond one way or the other. Chairmanprescott, you should stand down on your edits on the Forerunner page, because obviously not all your work are in bad-faith but it would help to not get banned and to think it trough. I could have the patients to see all the naming and comments about my methods and I will take the suggestion to close the protection on the Forerunner page but if any misconduct continues, I'll ban you for 3 days.

I honestly can't tell if this is too harsh cause I can't translate others feelings from my wording. Now excuse me, I have a show to finish. Kind regards, LPWy1g1.png Sooner or later, you have to jump.Talk  Edit Count   02:42, November 10, 2014 (UTC)

Help! Edit

Halo, I am KnifeDownv2, a new member here. I am getting a decent understanding on how things work besides one aspect, the signature.KnifeDownv2 (talk) 04:07, November 14, 2014 (UTC) 

How do i use it? When? Why? What do those three lines represent? I read all about them as much as I could and I am still confused. Is that all I put is the KnifeDownv2 (talk) 04:07, November 14, 2014 (UTC)?? 

Final question:

  1. Ensure that your coding is correctly complied, and coding is not left open: for example, be sure to close "" with "". Failure to do so will result in much beratement from irate Administrators who have to clean up your signature every time you use it, or even a request to not use a custom signature until the current issues with it have been amended.

What exactly does this mean? I hope you can assist me! Thank you for your time! KnifeDownv2 (talk) 04:07, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hello again, 

I was curious about editing. I notice a lot of run on sentences, gramatical errors, ect, and I was wondering if it would be appropriate if I edited such things. I noticed a lot of run on sentences in Halo 5 Guardians. I don't know if that is just annoying of me to edit up, or if it'll make this website look more professional! Also, am I limited to only 3 edits a day? What is the rule on "Over editiing"? and will I ever get feedback if my edits are "good" or just pointless? Thank you for your time again!

Rank category and UltraEdit

Regarding my adding categories to the Yanme'e minor page, why does one not add categories of games to species/ranks which appear in those games? The Jiralhanae ranks from Halo 3 are in its category.

And for the edit to the Sangheili Ultra page, I apologise. I realise my mistake: I had two tabs of that page open, both editing. One was an edit of the Gallery, and the other was the whole page: needless to say, when I saved the Gallery then the page, the page was reverted. My mistake, and my carelessness.

Help With EditorsEdit

Hello there. I would like some help when it comes to editors, as when I try to edit something different editors come up every time, and I dont know if this is normal or if only one type of editor should be shown depending on my settings. I also recently edited an article, I tried to follow the rules and policies the best I could but when I saved the changes there was no prompt for me to specify the changes I made. I would like to avoid any mistakes when it comes to editing and following the policies, so an answer to this would be really helpful.

Possible New Era Icon StyleEdit

Recently, I had a thought that the Era Icons should be done in a style similar to the Halo logos, and so I've created the following mockups to show what they'd look like:

USER Dab1001 Suggested CE Era IconUSER Dab1001 Suggested H2 Era IconUSER Dab1001 Suggested H3 Era IconUSER Dab1001 H4 Era Icon

What do you think? Should we use them, or stick with the current ones, and are there any changes needed? I'll begin making the rest if you like these.

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 19:49, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

I think we should stick to the current ones to keep each era look consistent because theirs more icons that don't associate with the similar design. Furthermore, no change is needed as of now for the Era icons. I Appreciate the effort put into this but maybe another time.
Kind regards, LPWy1g1.png Sooner or later, you have to jump.Talk  Edit Count   20:05, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
Alright, that's fine. For the other icons, I was considering putting the existing icon in the center of the O. Anyway, let me know if you change your mind.

Games Categories Edit

Remember the thing brought up by Vektor0? has the Administration given this a green light? If so, I have a question: should weapons be in their games' categories? Unless a Weapons category for every game is made, I am unsure of how to proceed.

And why was Category: Halo 2 Weapons deleted? It could have been useful, if additions were made to it.

Regards, Vessel Of War (talk) 11:13, January 5, 2015 (UTC)

  1. Currently awaiting response.
  2. Leave Weapons out of game categories for now.
  3. Category:Halo 2 Weapons was deleted because it was largely underused, as goes for Category:Halo 3 Weapons.
When the Admins concludes the new way to change up the game category, I'll see what we can do for the weapons.

Other Games sectionEdit

In the Halo Media tab, maybe you should add a section called 'Other Games' which consists of games like Halo: Zero and Halo: Out with a Whimper. What do you think? Thanks in advance. Coolbuddy USER Coolbuddy379 Sig Photo talkblogs 14:02, January 5, 2015 (UTC)

Separate Page for M6H2 Edit

Should we create a separate page for the M6H2? Personally, I think we should, but it is down to you.

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 23:06, February 6, 2015 (UTC)

Good point, I agree. However, when the time comes. if the M6H2 does get its own page, perhaps we ought to do one for the two M6Gs. Do the two models of M6G have different designations?

Map Remixes Category Edit

Should map remixes have their own category? I'm in favour, because remixes are distinct from remakes, since they change more radically, and are in the same game as the original, but that's just my opinion. Granted, there are only two remixes we know about now, but I still think it is worth it. What do you think?

Categories Cleanup?Edit

I've noticed articles like 4 Charlie 27, a UNSC unit, are in both Category:UNSC Army Personnel and Category:UNSC Military Units. While the latter makes sense, I believe the former is unnecessary as it should refer to individual Army personnel (eg 2 Lima 4). Do you agree with this? There are a lot of articles incorrectly in these categories, so I thought I should find your opinion.

Regards, Vessel Of War (talk) 13:42, February 21, 2015 (UTC)

Navbox TemplatesEdit

I've noticed that many of the navbox templates, such as Template:Covenant Ships and Template:Halo Games do not use the normal Template:Navbox layout. Are these like that for a reason, or can I go ahead and change them to use that template, simply to create a unified aesthetic?

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 19:56, February 23, 2015 (UTC)

Go ahead and change it. It's better to have consistency. Also, don't add in skull images; I have them cooked up on my computer and meaning to add them here. Just add the filenames and I'll add them in.

Wikia Maps for Halo Multiplayer Maps Edit

I think that we should create a Wikia map for each multiplayer map, using top-down images like this one, to better show the layout. For example, I made a half-finished one here for Death Island. What do you think?

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 17:09, March 9, 2015 (UTC)

I could implement individual icons, yes, but it'd take time. As for the embedding on the page, I believe there's a way to embed the map directly into the page. I'm currently looking into embedding images into the description of each pin in the map. I can't move the map into Halo Nation yet, mind you, since maps seem to be either disabled or admin-only.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 22:48, March 9, 2015 (UTC)
Embedded it there. Any idea why there's no option to create maps here on Halo Nation?
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 07:39, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
I checked, the maps need to be enabled on the Admin dashboard. As for resizing it, it is done in HTML, so it is difficult to know how to resize it, but since it appears to use the width of the container it is in, you could try embedding it inside a table, or something. Right now, I'm trying to find out how to create subcategories of pins, so we can have Vehicles, and then Banshee, Scorpion, Wraith etc under it.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 18:24, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Also, I don't think I can make pin subcategories, so that leaves us with a couple of choices: have a single 'vehicles' pin type, and you have to click on the pin to see what vehicle it represents (the same goes for objectives, grenades, weapons and locations) or we can have a pin category for every vehicle, objective, weapon and location on the map, which will be more accurate but also make for a cluttered and ultimately useless legend (the turning off pins function wouldn't be of any use, as it'd only remove a few pins). Anyway, I'm in favour of the first option (having overall categories), especially considering we can embed images into the pin descriptions.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 19:54, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
Sorry to kinda spam you, but I've added an example pin (blue pointer thing to the left of blue base) on the map, to show you what it'd look like if we simply have a 'vehicle' category and then used embedded images to show what vehicle each individual pin represents.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 20:09, March 10, 2015 (UTC)
I don't appear to be able to resize it. Even when put into an infobox/table, it always appears as the width of the entire page. However, I think we could still implement them at the current size, as a subsection of the gallery, or we could have a system similar to the walkthroughs for campaign levels, i.e. 'Halo Nation has a map of this level.' or 'Halo Nation does not yet have a map of this level, could you create one?' at the bottom of the infobox.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 07:46, March 12, 2015 (UTC)

Banshee Types Edit

Should we have individual pages of the Banshee subtypes? I.e. T-26AZ etc...

Also, how do the icons look on the map?

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 19:17, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

Oh, and also, should the pin category for teleporters and man-cannons be separate from the dynamic elements category?

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 19:20, March 17, 2015 (UTC)

I'm in favour of having individual pages for each Banshee simply so that the Banshee picture for each map is of the Banshee from the game the map is in. As for the teleporters, I will implement that now, although idk what the icon should be.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 21:56, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
Teleporter icon is finished. I couldn't think of symbol it should be, so I used the Halo 3 Portable Grav Lift symbol. Not entirely accurate, but it looks fine, I think. Thoughts?
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 22:13, March 17, 2015 (UTC)
One last problem - what gametype do we base these on? In CE, there are different vehicle layouts for each gametype, meaning it is a bit inconsistent. Team Slayer seems to have too few vehicles, while CTF has way too many (in TMCC at least).

Renaming the MCC achievement images Edit

Howdy there, Haloprov. I've been hard at work for the past few days adding a lot of images and concept designs, categorizing them and generally adding more visual information, yadda yadda yadda. I spent the last hour gathering up a few hundered achievement images from the MCC to use, but I see otherwise. In short, could you just tell me that the preferrable title of the photos should be "HTMCC AchievementArt _________.jpg" before just making the changes? Thanks, prevents a lot of confusion and I hope to see you on WIkia soon! (Photographic Warfare) 100px 20:58, March 22, 2015 (UTC)

Halo Online Edit

With the announcement of Halo Online, this template needs updating. It's locked, so I can't do it, but we might as well kill two birds with one stone here, since Spartan Assault and Spartan Strike aren't part of the Reclaimer Saga. I'd suggest giving them their own 'Top-down Shooter' category.

Also, Halo Online and the new, recently unveiled novels/novellas need to be added to the navbar.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Oh, and before I forget, I'll get round to finishing the maps and the map manual of style as soon as I get to Easter Holidays. Too busy at the moment, but it's only a couple of days away now.

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 22:15, March 25, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, a single link for each of the trilogies sounds good. Only problem is what do we do once that's filled up? If 343i keep making books and games at the rate they are now, it'll soon be filled up again.
When I do start writing it, you may want to make sure I'm writing it in the correct way (not so much grammar errors, but the entire style of the writing).

Maps Manual of Style and Orginisational Things Edit

I've finished creating the Map Manual of Style. Could you give it a quick run-through to make sure everything is ok with it? Thanks, in advance.

Also, I've been thinking that, in terms of wiki organisation, Halo Nation could be doing a lot better. There are loads of images that are named things like File:HALO WARS- FMV 20100110-21155466.jpg which aren't meaningful names at all, and citations often vary in style. For example, I cite in the style Organisation/Canon Media Name - Subcategory, if relevant - Article Name/Book Page reference, but I've seen many citations in the format Orginisation Name: Article Name, and I've even seen a few that are just textless external links, appearing as [1]Map Icon - Man Cannons. Also, category and template names can get confusing some times. I often envy Destinypedia as they name their templates {{Infobox/Race}} etc. I think we should introduce standard naming schemes for all of these things, and do our best to organise what files, templates, categories and citations we already have.

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 16:03, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

I know that it would be a long, and gradual thing, to get everything applying to naming rules, but I think we should at least introduce uniform naming for each of the things I mentioned above, so that we know that the new ones will fit the naming schemes. We can then go back and change the older ones when we have the time.

Template confusionEdit

I started making a template for displaying achievements for a campaign level's achievements, but after the first row I wasn't sure how to make an {{#if function, which would allow the number of rows (and achievements) to vary depending on the fields. I tried to replicate the Disambig header template, but that just confused me more (why is it {{#if:{{{6|}}}|?!). Could you look into it on the Sandbox?

QuestionEdit

Hi Haloprov,

Since you're admin, I'd like to ask you a question. I noticed since I'm working on this Wikia that pages dedicated to Covenant ranks have a title, always with their covenant name, as in Sangheili Major and Kig-Yar Heavy. But why are the articles about T'vaoan still named with human names, like the "T'vaoan Murmillo"? I understand Minors and majors could cause confusion with their Ruutian brothers, but wouldn't it better than to rename the Skirmisher pages to T'vaoan? So "T'vaoan Murmillo" instead of T'vaoan Murmillo.

That would be more logical in my eyes since for all other species their covenant names are being used, these seem the only exception. I'd love to know your opinion about this! Kennyannydenny (A question is never stupid, only he who asks it) 12:47, March 30, 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of Hunt The Truth talkpageEdit

The stated reason for deletion was listed as "Disregards guidelines: See: Halo Nation:Talk Page Policy".  However, after thoroughly reading both the linked page and the wiki etiquette, I could find nothing in my post that violated any of the listed guidelines.  I remember having difficulty with you in the past over matters like these, so let's skip the edit wars and simply get down to a detail explanation of why my post was removed, please. Foxi Hooves (talk) 05:22, March 31, 2015 (UTC)

My mistake, I assumed that the primary role of the talk page was communication between users and administrators, but that it was also simply a place to talk about the subject for clarification purposes regarding the article.  I saw nothing regarding a policy against speculation in talk pages, so I assumed it would be fine.  If you could recover the text from my post and send it to me, I would appreciate that very much, thank you.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Hey, Prov. I know you probably won't see this until later, but whatever. Over the past few weeks I've been uploading copious amount of images, categorizing them, and of course putting them in their place.

HardcoreCasualGamer

Regarding the Halo 4 page edit war (please reply!) Edit

You do know that right now the information on that page is factually incorrect? Right. In Halo 4 John-117 said "I thought we had a truce with the Covenant" not Cortana (source: The game, Halo 4, itself ). .Please let me fix this back at least, if you care about information on this wiki being factually correct you will alow this to be fixed. RIght now the page says that Cortana said "I thought we had a truce with the Covenant" when she didn't.

Unless you want this wiki to be giving people false information.

Also the Covenant in Halo 4 are not the same Covenant as Halo 1-3. After the fall of High Charity, and the Prophet of Truth (the Covenant's leader) was killed the Covenant fell apart. It splintered off into several different factions. Jul Madama's Faction is one of these factions. It is not the same empire/army as the original Covenant, rather a rogue splinter post-war group. Not to mention the Covenant Remnant is Elite lead, and all the Elites left (as well were forced out of) the original Covenant during the events of Halo 2, as the Prophet of Truth ordered the Brutes to kill all Elites in the Covenant. Frank O Connor said that the Covenant in Halo 4 was a splinter group of the original, and entirely different politcally. Why won't you let me make this clear on the Halo 4 page?

I don't understand why my edits keep being un done, they are factually correct.

An Important Blog Edit

Hello Haloprov, there is quite an important blog and I'd love to hear you feedback on it, if it hasn't been done already, please can you sticky it? here is the blog. 343 TheGuiltyProphet (talk) 20:52, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Untitle (How2Cite)Edit

Hi I just have a question, how do I add a proper source for an article? —This unsigned comment is made by IPavatar (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

MJOLNIR Infobox Edit

Hey, I'm working on an infobox template for MJOLNIR armour variants. However, I'm having trouble getting the fields to work with the tabber. Any idea what the problem is?

I'm testing it here.

Thanks in advance.

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 00:02, July 13, 2015 (UTC)

Nevermind, I've worked out the problem.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 00:11, July 13, 2015 (UTC)
It's in the CSS for the wiki. Tabbers are disabled, or something along those lines. Rather than create a tabber, it just puts the content of the tabbers beneath one another.

Ref Template Edit

Hi, I'm having some trouble with a template that me and Vessel were creating. The idea was to make citing references easier, and to standardise the citation format. However, I'm running into a few problems, which can be seen on my sandbox page. For some reason, it's adding extra lines and in some cases a <pre> effect.

I would appreciate it if you would take a look, and see if you could spot the problem. Other than that, could you also give feedback on the template's layout, and whether you think we should adopt it or not?

I would also like to just point out my Rollbacker submission. I don't mind if you don't support it, I just wanted to show you because it seems like nobody but Vektor regularly checks that page. :P

Thanks in advance.

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 19:33, July 25, 2015 (UTC)

That is true. The idea was based on Destinypedia's template, and is more about organisation than anything else. However, it is important to note than only some of the writing is actually needed. Only two or three fields are required per ref template. If we manage to fix the errors, then it should be relatively simple to use.
As for the Rollbacker submission, I agree that I haven't been particularly active recently, but that should change soon. I've had a busy few weeks, with exams just over, a short trip and some other stuff that required my attention, but now I have a fairly free week, before a week's holiday, and then the entirety of my summer holiday free. Hopefully I'll be more active during that time.
Thanks for supporting it anyhow.

Pelican and Phantom Easter Egg Edit

The issue with my edit was...? You didn't leave an edit summary for why. 108.24.48.24 06:55, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

Halo Wars 2 Edit

I've uploaded a reasonably high-quality transparent version of the Halo Wars 2 logo, for use on the Portal/Games template, so if you could add it, I would be grateful. On that note, I would also like to suggest the full Halo 2 logo used be replaced with something more akin to the logos used for Halos 3 and 4, just to make it more consistent and easier to press.

Also, if you have any ideas on the Halo Wars 2 era icon, I'm open to ideas. I'm having trouble differentiating it from the Halo 2 era icon, as they both use '2's :P

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 12:21, August 8, 2015 (UTC)

I'll do my best to improve the quality of that image, however, I tend to find the jaggedness is often not noticeable with the dark background HN uses. If there's any other improvements necessary, please tell me.
As for the era icon, I had tried putting the '2' over the HW icon, but it just renders the SOF emblem pretty much unrecognisable. I'll keep trying, but won't upload anything unless I find something that really works.
Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 14:36, August 11, 2015 (UTC)

Why did you delete most of the images i uploded? What was wrong with them?

Navigation Bar Edit

The nav bar is clearly running out of space in the Halo Media category. I've got a suggestion (which may need to be tweaked based on how many Tier 1 options are allowed) which would reduce the amount of links per drop-down list.

Of course, if that's too many Tier 1 options, we could always condense the Halo Literature section back down into the Other Media category.

I just thought it'd help, what with us running out of space in the games and novels categories (and soon, the comics category, but let's cross that bridge when we come to it).

Anyway, what do you think?

Dab1001 Avatar Dab (talkblogscontributions) 23:14, August 17, 2015 (UTC)

Also, as much as I hate to say it, this needs to be added to this template. Maybe you could file it under 'cash-grabs'? :P
