The reason I uploaded the Halo Wars 2 logo was because it was in a higher resolution than the one used in the gallery currently. People will want that in the future. The reason I uploaded seperately is because the site wouldn't let me update due to the template.
I want start by saying that I'm no noob when it comes to wikia and Halo, and I'm not angry. So answer me honestly, what makes you think you can decide what content I can or can't create on this wiki pertaining to the Halo franchise? And who says you can decide that I can or can't use the section "In-Game Information"?
I understand that it is the role of an admin to police the wiki and enforce its policies. But nowhere does the policies of this wiki (which I have read) say I have done anything to contravene them.
There's a thing called "consistency" and I'll like to keep to that. We're not the pedia, we don't use sections called "In-Game Information" and staying to canon is why I can tell what content can and can't be on the wikia. This is Halo Nation, not Halo Fanon. I spend 2 hours fixing up the articles that you edited to fit more into Halo Nations standards and be more consistent with other pages.
It's good that your not a noob on how wikia works but every wikia has its own standards and rules that it's run by. I don't even get why this "lets talk" is even about. Is there a problem about me editing your edits?

So what you are saying is that this wiki is a history book and has nothing or will have nothing to do with actual Halo games.
Apologies for butting in, but no, he's not saying that. We do document both information about the games and about the lore. It's just that beyond an armour's rarity and which games it was in, there is very little to write about in a hypothetical In-Game Information section. We've got all those pieces of information covered in the infobox template, so there's no need for an In-Game Information section.
As for the consistency that Haloprov was talking about, all he means is that pages documenting a certain type of thing should all have the same subheadings. For example, we wouldn't have one MJOLNIR variant with a subheading 'Usage History' while the rest have 'Operational History' instead.
Gameplay information is definitely important, which is why we've documented quite a bit of REQ information in the requisition system main article. It acts as a centralized listing of the various unlockables in Halo 5, and it's much easier to update and maintain for consistency.
Hi Haloprov, i've been uploading and adding the achievement art from the Halo Wars: Definitive Edition. I've done all I can access right now, as it seems xbox.com is a bit bugged or broken. I cannot view the achievement art of secret achievements :( And those make up the biggest part of the newly added achievements in the Definitive Edition.
A lot of the requirements have also been changed, but the titles kept the same. Like Running the Show and Officer on Deck. How would we reflect that? I haven't checked if Gamerscore values also change, but I suspect that's the case.
Maybe you have the game and can check? I don't own it, as it didn't come with my Halo Wars 2 copy :(
Did you get the Definitive Edition? The code should come within 7-10 days (It was like this when HWDE was released back in December. Idk how it works now). And since I'm 9 hours late and I see you uploaded the Achievement Art, do you still need my assistance?
No I don't have the Definitive Edition. It was probably only given to players with the certain version of Halo Wars 2. I bought the standard edition and didn't get any code related to the Definitive Edition.
Well I miss the Achievement Art for several achievements, especially the new ones (those are almost all secret). Xbox.com doesn't allow me to see a greyed out preview of the secret achievements, so I can't get those. If you got the game maybe you could upload those. If not, then we'll have to wait until someone has it :D
Oh ok, i'll make seperate pages then. Maybe you could take a look at the Halo Wars Achievements template. I tried adding the Definitive Edition achievements into that one, but i'm not sure if I did it correctly.
O sorry I mean't to say Ultimate edition, which is the version you would've gotten the HWDE. I'll get the secret achievement arts later today and your edit on the template was good besides some minor errors and formatting.
I really don't know. I didn't know what to fill in at that location. Dab made the table and added the Keywords column. I think the description and special abilities these units have would be nice, but that may be better to only name on the page of the list instead of in the Blitz article.
I've just made Template:Halo Wars 2 Achievements. Let me know what you think about it! The order in which i placed the achievements is kinda totally at random, so i don't know if we rather have them alphabetically or something... let me know :)
I've added the row "Skirmish and Multiplayer" as those can be done in either Skirmish or Multiplayer, and some of them can even be done in Blitz. Didn't know any other way that would fit better. Let me know if you have any suggestions!
