Ye Olde Pube

A general discussion chat section, doesn't necessarily have to be related to Halo, Halopedia, or Wikia. Off-topic discussions are encouraged. The title of my "off-topic lounge" is "Ye Olde Pube", a reference to the bar of the same name that Peter Griffin built and operated in his basement in the Family Guy episode, Mind Over Murder.

Serious Talk

Halo Waypoint

Article : Halo Waypoint. Hi CommanderTony, Just to get your attention, the above article has been listed for grammatical clean up but has been lock. I understand that the article has been presented as if it had been directly copied off from Bungie (or whoever created it). Could you lower the security for the article. Thanks.--BlackSuitHalo 08:30, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

"News Service" Templates

Greetings Tony, my attention is being drawn by the Halopedia News Service which is quickly evolving. Since you are the Chief Editor there, should we create a new line of templates regarding the Service itself? (for example to indicate a user who is involved or a page which is an article's main subject) Wing Commander LTBar Firestorm, Administrator 19:15, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

These two are those I've conceived so far, until their coding is provisional changes can be made in no time. Wing Commander LTBar Firestorm, Administrator 16:50, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

A useful template

Hi CT, I continuing my work for the HNS. I've created a template from your work, which can be put at the beginning of each article.

Usage: {{HalopediaNews|Story name here|Author name here|Date here}}

Hope it doesn't let you down. Wing Commander LTBar Firestorm, Administrator 21:30, 20 May 2009 (UTC)


Hello I'm HaloFan500, Admin of Munkapedia, a Wikia that has recently become active and is trying to grow. However there is much to do. Halopedia is very sucessful, if at all possible you'd you be willing to help me, by providing templetes, codings, and things of the sort.--Your good friend, and Admin HaloFan500 { My Talk } 21:48, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Feedback needed

Tony, I left a message with Manticore, and wanted to reach out to you as well. We have a great opportunity to work with Microsoft, but I need some feedback. Are the blogs the best place? Check out my post and let me know if there is a better way of getting the community involved. Cheers -- Doug@fandom (talk) 20:23, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

New Bungie Project

The New Bungie Project page you deleted... it is needed. Because it is NOT Halo: Reach. Read again:

"While most of the studio's collective might has made the shift over to Halo: Reach to lend their time, talent, and insights into making it kick tons of ass when it comes out in Fall of 2010, your focus should be elsewhere. There no need for you to invest in cryogenics and endure a frigid hibernation season to help ease your wait—there's only 88 days left until Halo 3: ODST hits store shelves. You're shipping out on September 22nd, 2009. So mark your calendars, pre-order your copy, and GET SET for a combat drop. Oh and we've said it before, but since various denizens from around the Internet were once again speculating on what else we’re whipping up, yeah, we've also got a third, super secret thing in the works that you know nothing about. We'd love to tell you all about it, but as you may have learned from the proceeding sentence, it’s super secret. All in due time. When we have something to show you, we' it to you. Until then, mind ya bizness."

This was from today's (6/26/09) Weekly Update.

See? There is ODST, Reach, and then a third new game!

Re:Re: New Bungie Project

Well, then why does Marathon and District 9 have their own page? It isn't Halo: Marathon or Halo: Disctrict 9? Shouldn't those be deleted too, then? Sure, Halo has Marathon references, but it also has a HUGE reference to their game Oni and that doesn't have a page here!

More Marathon references than Oni references. Lot more. And sign your edits, dude. Srsly. DavidJCobb Emblem DavidJCobb  01:07, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, same here. I don't appreciate my profile being tampered with, Mr. Administrator. EtErNiTy92 00:46, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

In answer to both your questions, it seems that you're not supposed to remove stuff from your talk page. Ever. You can, however, move stuff off of your talk page into archival subpages -- as CommanderTony himself has done -- provided that you link to such subpages at the top of your talk page. I can provide instructions on how to do this, if you so desire. DavidJCobb Emblem DavidJCobb  01:06, 14 July 2009 (UTC)
Well...I just edited my talk page and don't want it reverted... =[ I'm gonna leave it as it is. Just...No one tamper with it. EtErNiTy92 01:23, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Talk Pages

Why can't one remove content from their own Talk Page? I'm not trying to start anything, I'm just mildly curious. Commander Silver Leaf Kougermasters (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 05:46, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Halopedia News Service Content

Hello, Tony. I have several ideas for some new content in the HNS. First of all, I was wondering if we could have a screenshot competition. People enter their screenshots and at the end of the week, one gets first, one gets second, and one gets third as voted by the Halopedia News Staff. Also, there should be an award called Editor of the Week, for the Editor who writes the most, or most popular news article(s) in a week, and also helps with the formatting of the Main Page, the News Ticker, etc.

Also, I have come in regards to Halopedia Warz. Don't you think it's time you did something about it? I would gladly participate in reviving it. Also, if it is revived, could Halopedians form their own Halo 3 teams, with unique names and such, just like what was done with Halo Wars?

I hope my ideas appeal to you. Have a nice night! Commander Silver Leaf Kougermasters (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 08:59, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

If I may put my two cents in, I think screenshot(s) and editor of the week are pretty good. DavidJCobb Emblem DavidJCobb  17:27, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't know why I can't edit the Halo 3: ODST page, probably because of my low position. But, a little snippet of info is that after reviewing the gameplay footage a few times I've noticed that Bungie has taken the tunnel vision problem from Halo 3 into consideration and have fixed it to a certain degree. Just something I thought you could add to the trivia. Look over the gameplay and see for yourself.--Underdogg13 22:28, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Hey Tony, Im an admin at Pfhorpedia, the Marathon Wiki, and I just received an anonymous message from someone claiming to be GPT wanting to be paid to come back to our respective sites. Normally I would disregard it as fake, but he mentions both our wikis as if he really was GPT, I was hoping that you could shed some light on the situation.--Vanguard7 20:00, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree completely. I only brought it to your attention because of the references to our sites, in that it sounded like it could be him--Vanguard7 20:20, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Tony, hope all is well. This afternoon we will be launching the promised Halo ODST event for MS, and giving out tons of schwag. We would love a site notice, and of course getting the word out about the giveaway. Check out the blog post here and let me know if you have any questions :) -- Doug@fandom (talk) 18:55, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Yo yo yo! Commander T, we sent out the initial round of winners on the 27th, some haven't responded so we re picked and emailed out confirmation again. People should be getting their schwag in a week or so. Congrats on a job well done sir. -- Doug@fandom (talk) 21:21, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

Help me understand.

You have deleted a page I made twice now for duping another page. If I can have a link to that page, that would be nice. I am only making a page that DOES NOT EXIST YET. It would exist if you would stop deleting it. Thank you.

Tony, yesterday you wrongly banned me. I created an article three times that you deleted three times. However, upon review, the second admin you said that I was contacted by gave me a link to HALO 2's IRON SKULL when my article was about HALO 3: ODST'S IRON SKULL. I asked for an article that I supposedly duped, and that is what I got. Why?

Just a question

Hi, I'm Soviet_SPESTNAZ from WiCapedia: the World in Conflict wiki. I'd just like to ask you how you made the main page of your wiki(including the side tabs like the gameplay, universe, etc.). It looks very nice. And also, I'd like to ask about you're templates and how you made them. If somebody else made the things mentioned above, then who are they and what are they're user names? Our wiki is in need of more editors, could you ask some you're editors to help me? Thanks in advance! Here is our site: WiCapedia[] Soviet SPETSNAZ 04:37, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

Kingdom Hearts Wiki Staff

Hello, CommanderTony. My name is DoorToNothing, and I am a Moderator over at the Kingdom Hearts Wiki. Recently, the staff and I noticed that you have two templates that we wanted to implement into our wiki: Template:Era and Template:Eraicon. We tried to implement the the two templates onto our Wiki, with minor changes such as the image and game-name. However, even with the help of our coding master (ILHI), we still can't get it to work. We've added a few things to our MediaWiki's CSS and JS that you use to try to get it working, but still no results. Could you please take a look at our templates and MediaWiki's CSS and JS to help us get this working, and maybe even give us a draft of what our MediaWiki's CSS and JS should look like with the necessary coding? Our templates can be found here:

Please and thank you, --DoorToNothing 19:44, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

Unjust removal of discussion comments....

You recently removed some comments I added to the discussion of The Package because they were "social" or "unneeded". I don't think this was done fairly and I was just wondering what specifically about them was grounds for removing them? What rule(s) did I violate?

I've seen many other posts that fall into the "social" and "unneeded" categories far more than mine did, yet you didn't have them removed. My comments simply gave my opinion on subjects started by other users. They weren't flames, trolling, or spam, so what made you remove them? Isn't the "discussion" section of an article for discussions related to the article? That's what I thought I was doing; participating in the discussion. --Mayhemm 07:35, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

If the comments (or the containing discussions) were entirely superfluous, an admin can remove them. DavidJCobb Emblem DavidJCobb  03:31, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
Obviously, because he did. But clearly it isn't Halopedia policy to remove all superfluous comments since there are hundreds if not thousands of equal or lesser comments that have not been removed. I want to know why mine were selected for removal amongst all these others.--Mayhemm 22:04, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I have seen the edits in question, and I have to agree, the user was treated unfairly. The comments were perfectly on topic, and not at all "social and unneeded". I suggest you reconsider your decision CT. - Black Mesa Halo-343 (Talk) (Contribs) (Edits) 22:32, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

I put the statements back. There was nothing wrong with the statements that would warrant their removal. It wasn't necessarily social; he was participating in a discussion. SmokeSound off! 22:45, January 8, 2010 (UTC)


I have question about the M6G. Is the max ammo 40 bullets with five clips, or 48 bullets with six clips? When I edited it to be the latter, someone undid my action, so for now, I have it as the first. Hyper Zergling 19:13, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

First things first: It's a magazine, not a clip. There is a difference. Secondly, the maximum is six magazines, with one magazine in the weapon itself. That's forty rounds in reserve, and eight rounds in the pistol. SmokeSound off! 19:38, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Ultra Forces' Epic Phail

A moment ago, I was trying to put a character Info box into my wiki userpage. But when I noticed that you removed it, I knew something was wrong becease it said that is was an article. In my head, I thought "Ultra Force, You failed!" So I'm just here to say sorry about my mistake. I'll try to make sure that it won't happen again. I'm still sort of new here. --Ultra Force 03:09, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Halo: Reach landing page

Hi Tony. Joe from the Gaming Team here. To get ready for the Halo: Reach beta, Microsoft would like to partner with Halopedia and build out a Halo: Reach landing page. It could live on the category page or we could create a portal page, similar to Portal:Fallout: New Vegas at the Fallout Wiki. The idea is to make the page appear like a main page but have it focus entirely on Halo: Reach. So on the page, in addition to lots of links to articles, we could have a blog posts listing, a gallery of images, an embedded video, etc. We plan to get assets from Microsoft (screenshots, images of characters and/or weapons, video, etc.) that we could use to help make the page look hawt.

We would also like to run a contest once the page is completed. No details have been decided yet, but we plan to hit up Microsoft for some swag to giveaway. So first things first - for now, we just want to know if you guys are interested in the landing page idea, and if so, do you want it to be on the category page or a new portal page? Obviously we want the rest of the admins to be involved in this decision, so if there's a place you'd rather me talk about this, let me know. Or I could message the other admins and link to your talk page and have the discussion here, whichever you prefer. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 18:46, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up about the admin email address. Sending email now. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 18:59, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
Apparently my email didn't go through. I got this returned message...
We're writing to let you know that the group you tried to contact (halopedia-admins) may not exist, or you may not have permission to post messages to the group. A few more details on why you weren't able to post:
  • You might have spelled or formatted the group name incorrectly.
  • The owner of the group may have removed this group.
  • You may need to join the group before receiving permission to post.
  • This group may not be open to posting.
If you are able to use that email address, could you use it to contact the other admins using the message I originally posted here? Add me as CC to the email if you don't mind - Thanks. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 21:28, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
It seems like a good idea to me. The contest for the Halo 3 release helped get Halopedia noticed by the big Halo fansites, which promoted membership. Something more official seems like it would increase Halopedia's standing among such websites. Halopedia doesn't really have portals. This could be an okay thing on its own to serve its particular purpose, though. *shrugs* --Dragonclaws(talk) 17:33, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

Regarding page references

I've been sprucing up the Thel 'Vadam article with some information from Halo: The Cole Protocol, but I'm still a little new at this. When adding a page reference to a paragraph that draws references from more than one chapter in the book, do I put down the start/end pages of the chapter or setction in question, just the pages with important information such as names or events, or what? I'm a bit reticent to just blunder in and screw up such an important article by putting in improper page references, so I started by just getting the references for single-chapter sections, which I know from my college classes how to manage.

Ummm why did you remove my post on the Talk:Prophet of Truth page? I didn't say anything offensive I was simply stating wat would happen.Justin Kane 00:29, April 22, 2010 (UTC)--Justin Kane

Hey tony, i happened to notice that 'Latest News' on the main page has been rather bare lately, whilst i keep getting updates on news about things like the REACH Beta, or a possible halo movie from many of the other sites I check out. I feel that many other Halopedians might be missing out on crusial news, maybe i could be of assistance. If so when i find out new like maybe a new REACH vidoc i'll run it by you and you could add it to the news. Message me back please.—This unsigned comment is made by Cheezyboundy (talkcontribs) .

Hi Tony. We're trying to drive as much traffic as possible to Portal:Halo: Reach (hence the 2 spotlight images you may have seen), so I wanted to ask if you could add a link to the page to the Sitenotice, either on the current line about the beta or a separate line if you prefer. If you decide not to add the link, I understand, but please leave me a message so I know. Thanks. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 21:41, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Brand new Reach video releasing tonight

Hi again. At midnight tonight (eastern time), the embargo will be lifted on a brand new Reach trailer, which Microsoft sent to us today. Starting tomorrow, Microsoft wants us to display the new video on the Halopedia main page, so I wanted to bring it to your attention (I just found out about it a few minutes ago). The video needs to stay on the main page until May 20th. Please share this info with the rest of the admins (so they don't revert my edit). Hopefully you/they won't object to the video being on the main page (just for 3 weeks), but feel free to post any comments, questions, or feedback on my talk page. Thanks. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 01:00, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

The video is now live on the main page as well as Halo: Reach Videos. The 5/20 date was part of the arrangement with Microsoft (specifically, their ad agency). The head of Wikia Ad Operations told me that we may be able take the video down sooner if we generate enough pageviews, so there's a chance that it won't have to stay on the main page for the whole 3 weeks. We've already been running 2 spotlights for the multiplayer beta for the past week (that link to Halopedia of course), and I may create a new spotlight image using a screenshot from the new video that also links here in order to maximize pageviews. I'll keep you posted, but in the meantime, please keep the video on the main page, but feel free to edit the method in which I featured it. I used the Header-2 template to match the look of the other sections, but if you prefer it to be featured differently, all I ask is that it remain easily visible to anyone visiting the main page. Again, I welcome any questions or comments on my talk page. Thanks. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 04:47, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

Vandal McVandalson

User:A ham5ter made a major vandalism edit to Halo: Reach. Thanks, -- UNSC Halo addict (talk) 20:59, May 16, 2010 (UTC)


Hi Tony. A reporter from Advertising Age is writing an article about how user-generated articles are becoming more valuable than paid-for articles. He wants to interview a couple Wikia editors to learn about their motivations to contribute to a wiki. You were one of the editors I suggested, so now I'm contacting you to see if you would be interested in participating. If not, just leave a reply on my talk page. If you are interested, send me an email and I will follow up there. Thanks. JoePlay@fandom (talk) 16:51, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Talk page deletions

Please...can you tell me whats wrong with what I write on talk pages? You rarely give reason for removal, and you've done it a number of times. I've asked you about this before, but you haven't responded. Going from your record so far, you probably just deleted it. Arcdash 05:34, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Right, I understand that I guess, but this was actually off of an article talk page, and the talk was at least partially relevant to the page. was about the Reach Beta, and I'm not familiar with the policies about that, but it was directly related to the article. Arcdash 13:36, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Forum Deletion

Sorry. I'm new to this wikia. On the ones I come from, a forum is like any other forum. Where do I go to have a general discussion? Or do you do that off-site?Fairfieldfencer FFF 16:06, May 24, 2010 (UTC)

Please relieve my burden...

Hey Tony, could you please remove my ban on Halo Fanon. I think I've cooled down enough. Don't worry, I really don't plan on getting into any more political arguements anymore... trust me, I didn't enjoy that last run - Echo 1 21:28, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism/war declaration

I don't know if you know but i was looking on your wiki( i am from the fallout and alan wake wiki) and i noticed a change in your vehicle page, it turns out that the Call of Duty wiki has "Declared war on your wiki" and they want you to delete all your pages or they will( they sound as thick as sh!t to me) so i just thought i should let you know.Felixwilliams12 08:09, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
